Warcraft Wednesday: Confessions Of A Raider? (or PVP’er!)

wowscrnshot_090218_011625.jpgI have been provided an idea for a segment for Zephirah’s Adventure Podcast that I would like to try. It will be called “Confessions Of A Raider” and similarly to the previous “Community Spotlight’s” there will be several questions for the participant to answer.

Obviously, these questions will be specific to raiding (or pvp) and the experience of the player.

If you would like to participate in the “Confessions Of A Raider / PVP’er!” please reach out to me via twitter @Zephirah_Zella or on Discord.

Warcraft: Why do you play your faction?

Zephirah Gnome 2The lovely Z and Cinder had posted a wonderful question that I just had to answer!

Why do you play your faction? For starter’s, I play (or have been known) both Horde and Alliance; however, I do have my main currently on the Alliance side. I have, or at least for as long as I can remember, bounced back and forth between the factions with a plethora of alts.

At one point, Zephirah, the priest was a gnome. I have a rather lengthy roll play story for her. To make a long story short though Zephirah was a gnome working just outside of Stormwind at the king’s request, found out that her father died and wanted to go and find his body. She wanted a proper burial for him in the Stormwind with the rest of the hero’s. She in the process found out about what the Lich King was doing and decided to fight for Azeroth. To protect the land and slay all of the evil in the world around her. As she was fighting the magic of a Death Knight and a radical arcane mage mixed and she turned into a dragon. She ended up hiding out for a while until a Tauren Druid took care of her until she turned into her humanoid form again. The Druid, Mauimoo, did the best she could with the aid of what the Pandaren people had taught her.

However Mauimoo did not anticipate her to turn into an elf though. Zephirah Zephirah Gnomethanked Mauimoo and ventured to Teldrassil where she found that she felt like she did not belong there. She did some minor work for the city and when she was ready she fought against Garrosh Hellscream. After the fight her body went into a frenzy again and turned into a Blood Elf. Ever since then she has followed Khadgar and his teachings.

Zephirah always felt like she could never go back home in her elf form. She absolutely hates it. She wants to be normal again. A gnome.

So, yes boys and girls. I am bi-factional and proud.

Warcraft: Virtual Ticket Shenanigans?

blizzcon-logo-og-39036eb778a980553e0d9aedc668c1b6ca825e46cb8c1d1b30cfe95e4e2918fcc0fd69e17666353c3f6c29541275f18ee8b2a5835bde018693283f4d05702142Blizzard recently let us know about the rewards for this year’s Blizzcon Virtual Ticket!

To be honest, the rewards are underwhelming. They are banners and cloaks. Some are upset due to what the rewards are and I can understand. In a recent stream, Panzer aka Trade Chat made a few good points that I wanted to highlight.

First of all, the reward’s are a bonus item that we receive as part of the virtual ticket sale in World Of Warcraft and other games under the Blizzard umbrella. We are actually spending the money for all of the panels, equipment used, and to pay people that are manning that equipment for their time. I know a lot of people think that they are missing out on the collectibles. Honestly, these in game goodies are not ideal but not the worst things in the world. There are so many various things out there in game right now that I still need to farm, so missing these items will not make or break the Blizzcon experience for me. However, there are others that view the lack of items as being a slap in the face. To have the classic play test being a part of it seems like that is what the extra ten dollars that people are paying for. Honestly, not everyone is into that idea and I do not blame them for feeling that way. They are separate things and should probably stay that way.

Panzer also mentioned that not all players will be into this and with the player’s email being attached to their accounts with the classic announcement is how we would know if the player has interest in classic or not.

This year for me, I know it is not really worth the value but spending the fifty dollars that I have saved on game time, card backs, or a mount or two on the store for World Of Warcraft would be the better bet. That is just a personal preference. Not that anyone spending the cash on the virtual ticket is a bad thing. If anything, I am glad that it is going to Blizzard rather then some crazy site that will just scam you out of the cash. Also, I just figure that fan site’s like wowhead, Blizzard Watch, Blizzpro and a plethora of podcast would fill out the news for me that will save me the money to put elsewhere.

I know that Panzer was a little salty and cursed a lot; however, if you get past the angry part and actually listen to what she had to say it made a lot of common sense.

Warcraft Wednesday: Haste, the new gateway drug!

Zeph hasteI know that secondary stats are not the focal point for any class or spec. I also know that item level is great to have at high levels. However, I have played a priest since Cataclysm and the need for haste is at all time high and it has little pay off.

Honestly, I am not sure if it is worth the trouble. For being ilvl 345, her haste is at 13%. It’s is underwhelming, and feels very slow.

Slow to the point of wanting me to rip my hair out. It is frustrating and at one point or another I feel like I should move on.

If you have no idea for the stat priority for a shadow priest is as follows: Intellect > Critical Strike > Haste > Mastery >= Versatility. Haste for consumables is also suggested. (Consumables are gem’s, enchants, and food that you would take with you into raids, five man dungeons at any level, and the other various things you would like to complete.) I know that for Battle For Azeroth the items will have a smaller amount of attributes overall on them, plus there are less secondary stats available in comparison to Legion. That is just how a stat squish works.

I know it seems like I am making a big deal out  of nothing, and lets face it, you should bring the player and not the class or item level; however, this just seems to be off to me. I am going to try and keep a good outlook for this but with how things are going that I should choose another class to play as a main for the expansion.

Community Spotlight: Navox!

navox.jpg1 You have been a co host on several different podcast for a while, how long have you been podcasting and what is your favorite thing about co hosting?

I really like to chat about things I am interested in. I’ve podcasted about tv shows/ movies and Warcraft. I’ve been playing Warcraft for a very long time and I love to have conversations with those folks who share the same interest in the game

2 What are some of the Wow community content you enjoy following? (podcast, blogs, videos, ect.)

The Starting Zone with Jason and Spencer, this is the World of Warcraft podcast if you want to know what’s going on in wow.

The Converted – I try to catch this live, but I will watch on the following Tuesday at work if I miss it.  

FrazlCast – that one takes me 2 days to listen to on the way into work and going home. lol

Lagging Balls, The Instance, Rolling Restart, Hearthcast,  Of course Realm Maintenance

I used to try to listen to all of the wow community podcasts but I found that I do not listen enough to get through all of them before new podcasts are out.

Also, Non wow podcasts…. Stuff you should know, Gonna Geek, Branded in the 80s, Major Nelson Radio.

3 Do you have any advice for someone who is getting into creating fan made content (like podcasting, art, blogging, music, etc.)?

4 Can you tell us how you found WoW and what has kept you playing?

It was mainly the evolution in the mmo environment that brought me into wow. I had been playing Ultima Online, and then when Everquest came out, I swapped to EQ, and then when Warcraft was released my friends jumped the EQ ship and got me to reluctantly come along and the funny thing was, I hated wow at the start. It wasn’t EQ and I hated the 3rd person view. Lol. I really wasn’t liking the way everquest was going so I stuck it out with wow since my friends were all there and I’ve been in wow ever since.

5 What was the first ever character you rolled & Which factors determined your faction choice in the game at the time?

  • Do you still play on that faction and character?
  • What made you change?

The first character I ever rolled was a warrior but, that was the initial wave of me trying out wow. I actually do not have my original wow account. My buddy does.

The first toon I ever truly got involved with and adventured with is my Rogue. The 2nd time I was coaxed into playing wow with my friend Mark B and they needed a tank so I transported Navox from the Icy Tundra of the permafrost over to Azeroth.

6 What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?

Its hard to pick only one. If I had to pick one though it would be Heroic Siegecrafter in siege of orgrimmar this was before Mythic mode had come out and Siegecrafter was a roadblock. My raid group spent endless nights on this and we finally got it right before they nerfed it. It was one of the best memories.

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

The Kul Tirans, I have been looking for a larger than human race for a long time.

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

Alliance
