Warcraft Wednesday: 8.1 Drop!

So, I spent most of my time logged in to Warcraft today doing island expedition’s, World Quest, and leveling up a hunter alt.

It was nothing to fancy but it seems like leveling seems to be going quickly.

I am not sure what is pushing me to level up a hunter other than I haven’t had the class at max level. Otherwise, Warcraft today for me seemed to be very uneventful.

Funny thing is, the hunter is a gnome. Nothing particularly interesting other then mechanical pets. At this point I’m just doing the leveling up thing until the next raid teir is available for us middle of next month.

I don’t think we have spent enough time with the new patch for me to formulate a full opinion on it.

Zephirah’s Adventure: Weekend Thoughts!

I have been thinking over the holiday what I am thankful for. One of those things that happened to populate in my brain is this blog that I happen to maintain.

It is hard work. To keep up, and to keep going with it. I could have easily given up months ago but I chose to keep going.

Why? To keep going when it is hard shows some resilience. I know that I have let the “podcasting” thing slip because of various issues that came around but to keep it going makes me feel like I am productive somewhere. Even if the blog never really will make it much further then the readers I have currently.

I am thankful for the people that continue to read it because it keeps me honest. It is a great source of motivation actually.

Essentially what I am saying here is that, I do not know when the podcast side of things are going to come back, if at all, but the blog will not go away. Eventually I will come back in the new year with the podcast. For now, the podcast is on a break for the holidays.

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.

Shout Outs:

Weekly the podcast All Things Azeroth has a “Question of the week” that I usually participate in. This week’s question was, What content creator (Blizzard related or otherwise) would you like to give a special shout out to? My answer was quite simple and I am going to use it for my shout outs this week. So, Other then the obvious answer being the crew here on this podcast. I would like to shout out TheGameCase for having me on my first podcast a while ago, for showing me that I have the potential to do such creative things. For Draven, for also inviting me as well – for the same reasons. Frazley, Lord of the Punted for teaching me that you have to power through the mistakes you make and be a better person for it. For Ben & Jon from Azeroth Roundtable for being a very good pair and having the ability to have differing opinions and still able to have a great & entertaining conversation. For Barf, not only being the lead of the greeters in Convert To Raid, but for being one of many of my biggest supporters, and giving some of the best advice. Also, Sal – the best shaman’s ever – and one of the sweetest ladies I know. Lastly to Rho for all the fantastic work he does.

In The Name of…

cropped-img_13531.jpg. . .All things that are gnomish!

Before officially playing World Of Warcraft, I had a plethora of free to play mmo’s that I would enjoy. During that time, I did really did not think about how to name my toon’s. Up until one day, a friend and I were chatting it up over coffee. She was studying English in college. She wanted to be a teacher. During the course of the conversation she says, “To become a better person, you have to realize all of your mistakes that you had made in your life, know where you came from, even down to the letter, and where you want to go.” She continues to tell me the meaning of her real name. It was very interesting.

That had stuck with me for years, and remembered that when I first logged into the character creation screen for the first time. It also reminded me of the research that I did after our talk. My real life name is Andrea Jean. It loosely translates, from French, “By the grace of god, you shall be strong and brave.” Those are big shoes to fill. I wanted a toon name to match that. So, Off to the internet I went to see what I could come up with.

Zephirah, is a feminine variant of Zephyr from Greek meaning “West Wind”, it also has some Hebrew affiliation and is translated to mean “Dawn”. So essentially, if translated from the names origins and stitched together, my name means “Dawn of the West Wind”

Since then, alts have had some sort of Z name with a meaning behind it, Unless it is named something different, and it usually comes with a story. For example, my Tauren druid, her name is Mauimoo. A bunch of us were talking in Alea Iacta Est guild chat about vacations. A few minuets she was born! She, Role Play wise, is an absolute nut job & I love her for it!
