Alt Appreciation: Warrior Week

It is the last week of Alt Appreciation weeks at World of Lae.  Thanks for the great idea!  I have a decent amount of warriors because, like a friend, I find they’re versatile for RP.  They make great belligerent drunks, or can easily be just some guy who has to pick up a sword to fight one day, or can be highly trained over thousands of years!  Warrior as a class is something I’m still working on getting a grasp on.  I seem to do great at tanking until level 60 or so.  I’ve played dps on one of my warriors and thanks to an addon telling me what to hit, I do okay, but I really have no idea what I’m doing with that.  Anyway, here are my warriors!

Teniron Whitemorn is currently my only level 90 warrior.  He is a jeweler, turned drunk, turned jeweler again.  He lives in Pandaria with Kit.  I'd love to roleplay with him more, but there's not much opportunity with him staying in Pandaria, so the best he gets is writing unwanted letters to his brother.  He does have max jewelcrafting to match his story.  He tends to wear his armor IC as well.

Jaene is a copy of Jaeyn/Jaen.  He had to have a warrior version after Vassanta taught him to use his sword.  (giggles)

Aerrissa Summerleaf is Jaeyn's mother.  She's a sentinel, and is currently in Ashenvale.  She's another one of those characters who is 85 and needs to level yet, but I hate Pandaria, so I don't know how she's going to.

Jaenella is level 82.  She was my first warrior to max level, during Wrath of the Lich King.  She hasn't moved far since then, and sits, mostly forgotten, on my old realm.

Hernester has a basic backstory.  He might, some time, make an appearance in the Ghostlands.  Who knows?  He's level 80.

Ethirdir Redfeather is the oldest son of a hawkstrider farmer who lives along the southern border of Eversong.  He was one of the men in Theronil's unit for the siege storyline, and is Sanimir's cousin.  OOC, he's level 80 and has no matching gear.  Poor guy!

Gaelardrim is a builder on the island of Quel'Danas.  He was my first blood elf warrior, created just after the pre-Cata patch.  When Cata dropped and I changed servers, he stayed behind.  I forgot about him for a year or so, then went back to level him a bit.  That's when I noticed he looks an awful lot like one of my mages!  I swear I didn't plan that.  He's level 66.

Another blood elf warrior!  Arancon Firewind is Aeramin's father, who is supposed to be dead, but time travel happened and a mage goofed up big time.  Now Arancon lives in a house in the Ghostlands, after spending years in Murder Row.  OOC - He needs to get to 60.  I'm working on it.  He's currently in the mid-50's and decked out in BoA's.

Stunted, a random level 29 gnome warrior who wears a dress on a realm I don't even pretend to play on.  Poor girl.

Alt Appreciation – Rogue Week

WoWScrnShot_100813_020337

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, and was my bg main during Cataclysm.  She is also the GM of .  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!

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.  He feels 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.

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.

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.

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.

Aerrissa – A Sentinel on Patrol

Things were different now, in many ways.  Aerrissa slipped through the thick underbrush lining one of the steeper hills between Stonetalon and Ashenvale.  The last time she had fully served in the sentinels was well over 300 years ago, and in Feralas.  While she had held a higher rank back then, she found herself doing much of the same things.  Patrols, cleaning armor, sharpening weapons, etc. were all part of her routine again.  What was different was the constant threat of the orcs.

The people were different as well.  She hadn’t made much progress in making new friends yet, and had spent little time in Ashenvale before now.  She had made some efforts, but had been kept busy with her work.  She veered off the path and began climbing up the hill.  Recently, there had been a push to check on the elves that stayed deeper in the forest, and higher up on the hills.  The orc activity had lessened, which made it more feasible to keep watch over the more remote areas.  She knew where many of them lived already.  Some would move around from time to time, but they never strayed too far.

The sentinel captain at the spire had also warned that criminals could be hiding in the hills.  There was a list, some with drawings, most without.  All of them had a basic description, which was never very helpful.  Any number of elves could fit the descriptions.

She checked on the Temil family first.  They had never moved from their spot since she had started her patrols, and as expected, they were still in the same camp.  A young boy, no older than 20, greeted her as she approached.  She met with his mother, uncle and aunt inside the camp.  Everything was fine here.  She continued along her patrol route.

At the top of the hill, she waded across a small river to an island that sat in the middle of it.  A bear resting near an old stump raised it’s head.  “Hello Norr.”  She reached down and rubbed behind the bear’s ears.

“The sentinels have come to check on me again?”  A male voice called out.  Moment’s later, he appeared from the other side of his tent.

“We check on everyone we can, Bear.  Everything’s been fine, I trust?”

Beroleth, whom everyone called Bear, nodded.  “Norr was acting funny the other night.  I thought he saw something in the forest, but there was nothing there.  It might have been a bird or something small.”

Aerrissa smiled, “I’m glad all is well.”  She bent one last time to pat Norr before heading off into the woods along the stream.

She hadn’t went more than 20 yards when she stopped.  She had heard something behind her.  She turned to look, but nothing was there.  She looked around at the surrounding trees before twitching an ear and continuing on her patrol.

Art – Sketch Dump 2

The sketch pool is now full.  🙂

There is a slight NSFW warning for this one.  Nothing’s really showing, but positioning in one of the sketches implies a lot.

Many elves. There might be a human and a draenei or two.

Aerrissa – Leaving Darnassus

(( Just a short one today!  I have to raid soon! ))

Aerrissa Summerleaf made her way to the hippogryphs from the Tradesmen’s Terrace.  She carried two bags with her.  In the larger one, she carried her clothes, spare armor, and her bedroll.  In the smaller, she carried a few eating and cooking utensils, as well as some more personal things.  There were some very old letters, a few new ones, the fletched end of a broken arrow, a tiny sentinel figurine, a feather, and a small statue of Elune.  She wore her sentinel uniform, and had her hair in a long loose braid that hung over her shoulder.

They hadn’t been sure to let her come back.  They had believed her to be dead, after all, and she had made no effort to change what they had thought.  However, at the time, she had been a volunteer, having still been on her leave with two children under 300 in her home.  She had a long record of service before then, and upon looking at that, they had reinstated her, although she was to start out at a lower rank and work her way up again.  Aerrissa was fine with that.

She was to report to Ashenvale, to the Stardust Spire.  Orcs had apparently been moving up the pass there from Stonetalon, and although they had been driven back for the time being, the sentinels there had decided to increase their patrols of the area in case of another attack.  She secretly hoped she would be asked to scout out one of the more dangerous areas.  She was eager to use her skills.

She paid for the hippogryph ride to Ashenvale and secured her bags to it before hopping on its back and leaving for her new home.

OOC – 30 Days of WoW: Day 11

Day 11 — Your favorite gear set.

I’m going to do this by class since I don’t think I can choose an overall favorite.  There are too many nice ones to choose from.  Unfortunately, a couple of classes don’t really have great gear sets, so that made it even more difficult to choose. XD

Death Knight –  Tier 8 obviously.  The starter gear, both the greens and the blues that you earn while doing the quests, are also nice sets, but nothing screams “Death Knight!” more to me than tier 8.

Dinadrian Boughtender models the tier 8 set in MogIt. Jaellynn has the full set, but I didn't feel like switching accounts.

Druid – Druid sets, I like a lot of them.  A lot of times I find myself liking one element of one set and another in another set.  The nicest thing about druid sets is that they’re often green or brown and tend to match other druid sets.  That, of course, makes it easier to choose one element from one and another from a different set when going for tmog or IC gear.  But this post is about actual sets, not things thrown together from different sets.  As a full set, I think I like tier 11, normal mode coloring, the most.  Of course, it gets no points for matching the other sets very well, but I love the shoulders.

Terivanis Summerleaf models tier 11, non-heroic color.

Hunter – I’m going to go with tier 8.  I like tier 5 too, but I can’t stand the helm.  The tier 8 helm is kind of funny.

Theronil Whitemorn models stuff that he doesn't have, but my other level 85 hunters do.

Mage – This was one of the more difficult choices.  There are so many nice mage sets.  I’ve always liked tier 6 mage so I’m going with that.

Ellorian Melith'enddare models stuff that he does have. He has a belt that matches better though.

Paladin – Tier 4, because draenei look good in it.

Daanus is such a poser.

Priest – Priest has a lot of nice sets too.  I went with tier 6, with tier 13 and tier 8 following closely behind.

Kelanori Summerleaf models tier 6.

Rogue – A lot of the rogue sets are fugly.  I mean really fugly.  Tier 6 is okay, but I’m going to choose tier 8 for this, the shoulders make it worth it.  Just hide the helm!

Vaelarian Ashclaw models tier 8. He should have hid the helm!

Shaman – Tier 7, 25 man coloring.

Neeah has this set, except the gloves. Anyone want to run Naxx-25?

Warlock – Tier 8, of course.

Jainn of the Hyjal server says "Hi" in tier 8.

Warrior – Again, another class with fugly sets. =P  I went with tier 5, although I despise the helm, and I actually like the green recolor a bit more (sans hat).  This is a set thing so I’m sticking with sets!

Aerrissa Summerleaf models tier 5. I almost want to get it for her now. I have a feeling that if I did, only the hat would drop... haha.
