I've been having issues with my ISP for the last week so I haven't had a chance to give the new patch a go. However, I did get my blood elf hunter to level 85, and started two new characters (I know I really should focus on the old ones I have but I just can't), a troll shaman and an undead mage.

With regards to the undead mage I was struck by inspiration while putting her together to write a story so yeah, now I have two fanfics to do. Jesus. I'm regressing. On the good side of things I am having fun writing this one. It's a lot simpler than the one I want to write for Thiya because it's very linear with a definite plot whereas Thiya's is just a non-chronological log of things that happen to her with a minor overarching plot line.

I'm basically writing about a zombie that takes body parts to replace her own because she wants to recapture the essence of her youth. She has no eyes and cries all the time because it's fucking magic. She also fights crime.

I wrote her resurrection scene today and it was really entertaining for me. I haven't felt this good about writing something in so long. Usually the entire thing is a torturous ordeal and I end up hating the entire experience and the product that comes of it. Now I just need to figure out what I should do with it. Like should I show it to people? I mean it'd be cool if a lot of people in my guild wanted to read it. Where would I put it though? I have an Ao3 account but from what I've seen pretty much all the writing on there is really good and I feel stupid putting mine next to it, but I don't want to go anywhere near The Pit even though my writing is on par with that level of crap. And then what if I got blocked and couldn't write any more and people wanted me to finish it and I couldn't? Ugh this is all so stressful. :o

Also before my Internet started konking out I beat Diablo III on normal mode with my demon hunter. Good times.

Even though I do play both sides I think I'm starting to prefer Alliance over Horde. But that might be because I've never had much interest in orcs and trolls and so on.

I think I'm going to try playing Priest next. Maybe I'll make that character on my friend's server and finally join her guild.

So I'm finishing up quests for this battle for Andorhal.  I get the Alliance to retreat and my next mission is to report back to Lady Sylvanas over at the inn.  I've barely even started my walk back when all of a sudden I'm dead and everything is on fire.  And then I suddenly get an achievement for dying in said fire.  It looked like a volcano was erupting under my feet.  My first thought was that this was some kind of final assault from the Alliance, but when I respawned I was over at The Mender's Stead where everything there was on fire too and they weren't involved in the battle.  I started to panic a little because I hadn't finished any of the quests for the Argent Crusade in restoring some of the Plaguelands.

I managed to get back to town and find my body everything is still burning, but I finally manage to navigate my way through, expecting to find Sylvanas in the middle or town or something, but no, she's in the middle of the inn.  The inn that's on fire.  I went around it a few times trying to figure out a way in when the fire started to die down.  So I ran inside only to find her where she was originally, dead.  Then she faded away.  I'm just like "Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck," but my brain started to process everything more rationally.  Maybe this was a later quest that someone else happened to be doing and I just got spoiled.  No biggie; I've never been one to whine about spoilers (I end up looking for them more often than not).  So I exit and return, and Sylvanas is quite alive and I finish the quests.

Then when I resummoned my Water Elemental it was still suffering from a debuff that was...I dunno.  The title had to do with Deathwing's flames.  Then i was like "OHHHHHHH," and finally understood.  Basically I got blown up by a fucking dragon that I don't see for another few expansions (I only have the Battle Chest and, therefore, am only up to The Burning Crusade).  That was crazy.

I loved it.

 Ugh, I've only been playing for a couple of weeks and my Undead Frost Mage is about to hit level 40.  I don't know whether to be proud that I stuck with one character so long or disturbed at the fact that I managed to go so far in such a short period of time.  A guy I work with who plays can't fathom how I've gotten to such a high level without doing any dungeons.  I didn't think that was terribly difficult.  I've just been doing quest after quest and I've only had to grind for them once.

more musing. )
