My little goblin pulled me back for another couple evenings. Of course, the competition was watching Johnny Depp in the Lone Ranger with my kids. I sorta did both and when we switched to Joss Wedon's Much Ado about Nothing, I went AFK

I managed to finish up my time on the tropical isle. I picked up the skinning profession and spent enough time clearing raptors to make inventory management an issue. It's nothing another bag or two and a bank mule can't fix! I marked it down as growing pains on settling in to a new server with a new alt.

 I spent a lot of time flying through the air on explosions. It belatedly occurred to me, THAT'S WHAT GOBLINS DO. If I don't like it, I may have made a mistake with my racial selection. Thinking about it more... I COULD REALLY LIKE THIS!

Aldonza reached Org and level 14. I finally figured out how to forward heirlooms across realms, discovering they weren't optimal, but will certainly help. They're Agility leather not the Intellect I was planning to use. I had selected Restoration, but maybe until I can dual-spec I'll switch to Enhancement.

And I'm also very much looking forward to my Ghost Wolf form, because the distances from Inn to Gate in the city are long and boring! I find the Orc Capital about the most boring of any city.

On a brighter note, I'm enjoying the Guild Chat and slowly getting to know these folks that let me in.

I have not gotten the hang of preparing a segue from Guild Chat to music that was selected because of my earlier Profession choice. I need to plan ahead better or something. Sigh.

Return of the Greed

This blog is not the place to go on about where I've been. Let's just say I found plenty of other stuff I was enjoying more than my time in Azeroth, mostly offline. With the change of seasons, I'm finding a chance to return to WoW and my friends here.

There's plenty of excitement over upcoming changes, but I'm not really ready to return to Kallixta or Aldonza or Martuska. I wanted something a little different. Maybe it's time to start a new character?

I have never run a goblin through it's unique starting zone. I have rarely run a horde character. So, this will just be an experiment and my feelings for the new alt might mean it's short, but I'll give it a chance.

I'm choosing Shaman as the only healer spec I've had much happiness with. I think it should be fun. If I decide to stick with her after reaching Kalimdor, I'll need to find my heirlooms and figure out how to mail them cross server.

I don't have a special Horde server yet. My enjoyment on Wyrmrest Accord dropped when my guild split in half. Who do I know on the Horde side? My hours are haphazard anyway, so I selected Saurfang almost on a whim. Those Frostwolves sure seem friendly.

While creating my character, it wasn't until writing this that I noticed I am once again having a very short character. I'm not spending any more time analyzing my brain over its need to select short, female characters when I am actually a tall, bearded male.

I couldn't name a goblin Kallixta because my mind associates the name with my goodie-goodie paladin. Aldonza was my bank alt that kept muttering that she wasn't greedy, not really, just very ... money conscious! Aldonza fit much, much better, as she's the dross behind Dulcinea, and was available.

I'm happy with the storyline and especially liked driving around with my hommies. In the short time I spent with her Sunday, I ran her up to 9th level and anticipate staying with her for a bit longer.
