Alt-a-holic: Revenge of the Alts, Part 2!

Zelodie, Tauren Paladin

Meet Zelodie, the Tauren Paladin, on Bolderfist. Proud Member of Blood Of The Scribe.

She is my first 110 horde toon for the legion expansion.

Did I happen to mention that she is a boosted toon? No. Well, she is boosted. I am also very nervous to say that I am going to be tanking with her. That should be interesting because I have not had a max level Paladin since Cataclysm.

For now, what I would like to do with her is to complete the Surmar quest chain to unlock the allied races, then to attempt mythic 5 man dungeons. Nothing more then 5’s. I am more wanting to get my feet wet and see if I feel confident enough to continue tanking or if I should give the DPS spec a go.

Thank you for reading the post! If you would like to talk about your alts, battle pets, Warcraft in general, or any other topic please feel free to drop in to the blogs discord!

Community Spotlight: Thorn

thorn-lagging-balls-community-spotlight.png1 You are a co-host of the “Lagging Balls” Podcast, how did you get started with podcasting?

As a lover of existing Blizzard podcasts, I felt that I had my own community niche to reach that was somewhat underserved: the foul-mouthed bit! I also knew that Thyst and I had excellent chemistry. She and I had discussed podcasting many times but didn’t finally get started until I actually started a Heroes of the Storm video show with some other friends. It was a terrible failure, but it spurred us into action on our own work, finally!

2. Do you have any advice for someone who is getting into a creative things (like podcasting, art, blogging, music, etc.)?

Best advice I can give: make time for it and make it a part of your routine. It’ll never take off if you don’t DO IT and then stick with it! I guess what I’m saying is: don’t let your memes be dreams.

3. What are some of your favorite podcast to listen to?

Convert to Raid, The Instance, Film Sack, Battlenet Sports, Realm Maintenance, Rolling Restart, Azeroth Roundtable, Lords of the Storm, Gankbush Squad, Tauren Think Tank, Merely A Setback, Pod Save America, Hardcore History, Reply All, and my newest favorite: “Forever Frumunda: The Cheese Lover’s Podcast”

4. Other then podcast and video games, what is some of your hobbies?

I’m an animal lover (so much so that I became a Vegetarian), and I have two dogs and two cats whom I adore, spoil, and with whom I love to cuddle. I’ve become intrigued by politics lately and have been following that far more than I ever thought I would, and honestly one of my single biggest and most enjoyable hobbies is maintaining TLC with a variety of online communities across multiple platforms, with members in the tens of thousands!

5. What brought you into the playing Warcraft?

A set of friends who played Alliance and a set of friends who played Horde. Guess which friends I ended up liking better?

6. How often do you raid & What game mechanic do you like the most/least in WoW?

I raid six hours a week on two nights, with the heroic raid team (unofficially named “This Is Why We Don’t Stream”). Like: any mechanic that requires one person to step outside of their role to do something strange or unusual, such as arming a pod that drops shields for the raid or picking up a flamethrower to clear green goo from the fight! Least: RNG-based bosses like Coven in the current raid tier.

7. What is your favorite instance & boss fight (it can be from any expansion)?

Instance: Icecrown Citadel!
Boss: The Lich King!

8. With a new expansion on it’s way, what are you looking forward to most I’m “Battle For Azeroth”?

The reigniting of FACTION PRIDE!! Thyst and I are For The Horde through and through, but I’ve felt a disappointing lack of faction loyalty and pride over the past few years and I’m excited for that to return in earnest!

9. With the return to the factional divide in “Battle For Azeroth”, Horde or Alliance?

Don’t be ridiculous.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Podcast!

Community Spotlight: Thyst

ThystOn a weekly basis I am going to focus on a member of the Blizzard or gaming communities that I am a member of. As you can tell from the title, Community Spotlight, I did a short interview with Thyst. She is a host of Lagging Balls & also a regular on the podcast “Battle Net News”.  At the end of the interview you can see links for Lagging Balls & Thyst personal twitter.

Thank you so much Thyst for having Blood of the Scribe be a wonderful community on Bolderfist, you rock!

1.) What brought you into the playing Warcraft?  

I started playing WoW because I had been playing the Warcraft games on my Father’s work laptop since I was a little kid (always Orc).

2.) How often do you play games (not just warcraft – but in general!)?

I play games every day. WoW every single day and Overwatch usually too. I raid three nights a week and never seem to run out of things to do in WoW.

3.) I know you have attended Blizzcon, what other conventions have you attended?

The only other conventions I’ve been to besides BlizzCon were some small-scale collector’s conventions in Ottawa, Ontario (my home province), and I got to go to C2E2 in Chicago a few years ago for an article I was writing. Got to meet Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) and I was so nervous I could hardly speak!

4.) What do you like most/least about conventions?

I like the passion that people bring for the things they love to conventions. It’s hard to find a social function with that much positivity and inclusiveness anywhere else.

5.) How often do you raid & What game mechanic do you like the most/least in WoW?

As I said, I raid three times a week. Twice with my main Heroic group and once with a Normal group. I absolutely love raiding (it might be my most favorite thing to do in game). Lately I’ve noticed a lot of “balls” or orbs in raid mechanics – seriously, think about it. Balls everywhere lately. I LOVE it. What I dislike the most is any mechanic that pulls or pushes me around – it’s hard to deal with movement mechanics like that sometimes as a Mage because I’d rather stand still please!

6.) What is your favorite instance & boss fight (it can be from any expansion)?

That’s a really hard question. I LOVED Elisande in Nighthold, and I love Eonar in Anotrus. Not sure either is my favourite, however. I’ll have to give that more thought I guess!

7.) You host a podcast, Lagging Balls, what are some of your favorite podcast to listen to?

This is an even harder question. I tend to make friends with the people who do my favourite Blizzard podcasts and I’d be scared to mention some while forgetting others. So besides all the wonderful and diverse Blizzard podcasts I love, my favourite podcast is SMODcast and it was the first podcast I ever listened to!

8.) With a new expansion on its way, what are you looking forward to the most in “Battle For Azeroth”?

For BfA I’m looking forward to a renewed interest in Faction pride. Mine has never ever wavered, but I delight in seeing people being proud of their faction (Horde especially, of course).

9.) If you could say anything to Ion, your crush, what would that be?

If I could say anything to Ion right now I think it would be, “I’m sorry.”
