It is rogue week at World of Lae! I do like my rogues, and I probably have way too many, even if none of them are that well geared or anything. I’m not a good rogue. I forget to hit cloak of shadows when I vanish. I forget I can pick pocket. Sometimes I forget to put poisons on! But it is a lot of fun being able to sneak around mobs, or in one rogue’s case, pvp hotspots on his pvp realm. Anyway, here’s my rogues!
Latahlali Ashclaw is a very young kaldorei. She grew up around the tauren, even being named for one of them. After the orcs arrived, her family moved closer to Ashenvale for safety, and during the cataclysm, when the orcs pushed further into the forest, she lost her parents. Her grandfather found her and took her to the hills where he believed it to be safe. From there, she went on occasional trips to Darnassus for supplies. It was during one of those trips that she met Andarthir, who took her on as an apprentice, until her grandfather proved to be too much trouble. Latahlali still wanted to become a mage, so she wound up studying with Raleth, a sin’dorei mage, and eventually marrying him. She lives in Shattrath with him, their son, and three cats. She is currently waiting for Raleth to come home from the siege on Orgrimmar. OOC – She’s a level 90 rogue with a mage double, and was my pvp main during Cataclysm. She is also the GM of Gastropod. She was also my very first character on Wyrmrest Accord. I created her to sort of check out the server before I transferred Jaeyn there!
Vaelarian Ashclaw is a very old kaldorei and is Latahlali’s grandfather. He’s currently lurking around Ashenvale. OOC – He is also level 90. I dual-boxed him and Latahlali. Things died fast.
Alinash Brightblaze is a Stormwind elf. No matter that he’s sin’dorei. Despite his youth, he’s gotten into a lot of trouble in Silvermoon, and he feels much safer in Stormwind. He rents a place from an old woman who doesn’t see very well, and tucks his ears inside a low-brimmed hat if he has to go out. He’s part of the Tangle of Brambles storyline, and likes hanging out with the Harrier. OOC – Level 90, and yes, I did actually take him to Stormwind for the screenshot, though usually for RP, we pick a spot outside the city.
Tik is the butler in the Fairsong Academy storyline. He was born and raised in the house, and calls it home. OOC – I thought I got a better screenshot, but this one works. Tik is level 90, and is one of two 90’s off my main server. His server is very low pop, one of the lowest, and is a pvp server. He is my first character ever to level solely to max level on a pvp server.
Artero DiRossi has made a couple of guest appearances in the Tangle of Brambles storyline. He works in Stormwind as an independent appraiser. OOC – He’s my level 85 banker rogue. Of note, he leveled to 85 without doing a single quest. I’ve done a couple on him since then though, since now, the battle pet dailies count as quests for all characters on the account, at least, as far as the statistics page goes. So if it doesn’t show him as having done 0 quests because another character did a pet battle daily, then there’s really no reason to not do quests anymore. It was amusing while it lasted though. He’s one of my very few humans.
Aerissa is the rogue double of Aerrissa, the warrior. Aerrissa Summerleaf is a sentinel who just wants some time to herself. I think she’s managed to get it. OOC – She’s level 85, and probably will remain there for a bit. I’m not eager to level another rogue in Pandaria. It’s a near death experience with each mob, especially once you get to Townlong and Dread Wastes.
Tahro has no IC story. She’s a level 81 rogue, and was my first rogue to hit max level, when Wrath of the Lich King was current content, and the level cap was 80. Obviously, she hasn’t seen much action since then. Most likely, this is because I left her on my old server. She was my very first banker character, but has retired and passed the banking on to Youbuycat.
Kanedama is my only goblin. I hate isolated start zones, and can’t bear the thought of having to be stuck on that island doing the same quests in the same order again. (Same goes for pandas and worgen! Death knights almost qualify except you can leave after a few levels so it’s not so bad!) Kanedama is another banker character. She has no stories and is level 80 on a pve realm.
Mondevonse has a cool name and was one of my RaF characters. He’s level 80.
Jaedra was also leveled with RaF. I normally do not like female sin’dorei animations, but I do like their stealth crouch. She’s level 80.
Rotariggy is holding on to all of my timeless isle extras. She’s going to need bigger bags. She’s level 29.
I hate pandas. I thought the only way I could play one is if it was funny. So we have Bishou, the fat rogue. It’s funny. Who’s not going to see him sneaking around? Anyway I was wrong. He’s sitting at level 13. After having pandas shoved down my throat all expansion, I don’t want to see them anymore. Bishou remains a panda because race changing him would mean I wasted time on that stupid turtle that I was stuck on until level 12. I’m going to end my panda rant here before it gets worse.
Traela is level 11 and has heirloom legs so I don’t know. She might be leveled some day.
Or she might sit in Tranquillien looking pretty in her heirloom legs forever.
