Apparently, I belong to the Horde.

See, after quitting my Alliance guild, I had trouble finding reasons to play my hunter. I wanted to play a hunter, but I didn't want to go Alliance side to play him. So, after talking it over with my RP partner, we decided to faction change.

My first night as a troll, my friend and I ran Sethekk Halls, and we got to Anzu she told me, "Take it."



Thus began my luckiest four nights in WoW to date. )

And I have a standing deal with my friend to keep her company on as many runs of Sethekk and Magister's Terrace as it takes to get her the two mounts. It's the least I can do for her as she's stuck by me through guild drama, a faction change that altered our paired characters, and lets me vent to her quite a bit. Maybe this lucky streak of mine will rub off on her now.

As my previous entry was about how lucky I've been in a computer game, this entry demonstrates my luck doesn't necessarily extend to real life.

Way back in 2002, I purchased a Buddha statue from a local metaphysical shop (no longer in business, but those of you from Columbia, SC, might remember Joyful Alternative). I've never been a Buddhist, but for spiritual reasons I love the statues as I also feel just a smidge of, well, peacefulness when I look at one. I know it sounds a bit silly, but for someone with anxiety issues, this little bit of peace is nice to obtain from something so simple.

Anyway, today I was doing some overdue dusting on the shelves where all my Buddhas sit, including the one I've had for a decade. I set it on a chair I had nearby and dusted like I normally do. Today, however, I also had to bring the vacuum cleaner over to suck up some cobwebs I saw in the corner near the ceiling and some dust bunnies under the shelves where the vacuum doesn't normally go.

Somehow, I'm not sure how, I knocked Buddha off the chair and directly onto my foot. This statue weighs about three to five pounds. Miracle of miracles I did not turn the air blue with a string of choice words, but there was some whimpering an moaning while I was picturing myself in the ER with a nurse asking, "Now, how did you break your foot?" and wondering the sort of stares I was going to get when I responded, "Buddha fell on it."

So far there's no swelling. I can feel a little knot and I think tomorrow my foot is going to be quite colorful. It was a bit sore to walk on when I went out to meet the bus with the kiddo, but that was more to do with my shoes putting pressure on it than anything else.

As for my Buddha statue, he lost his head. Literally. Fortunately we had some gorilla glue, and when I last checked his head seems to be firmly reattached. I was worried because I love this statue, and there isn't a whole lot I've managed to hold onto from that time in my life apart from the emotional baggage that is my life.

And then the school called to inform me that the kiddo was getting out early due to another waterline bust. This time at the middle school. The bright side is at least homework is done early today.

So, Blizz did an Ask Me Anything on Reddit today for World of Warcraft. You may or may not have heard a girlish squeal when I checked out Wowhead's coverage of the questions.

How many novels are planned to be released over this expansion?

I'm glad you enjoyed the novel! Golden is a fantastic author who works very closely with us to do justice to the franchise.

If you're getting psyched about the storyline, I think you'll love the next novel which focuses on Vol'jin. Have you played the troll 1-10 intro experience? Vol'jin flat-out tells Garrosh he doesn't trust him and he'll stab him in the back the moment he sees an opportunity. The novel carries his story forward and really meshes in with the events of patch 5.1.

One of our ongoing goals is to make sure that the games and novels compliment each other, and that major lore events don't happen in the novels without some kind of representation in-game. This is a huge challenge for us!! But I think we're getting better at it.

OH MY GOD THEY'RE POINTING OUT THE ENTIRE REASON I FELL IN LOVE WITH VOL'JIN AND USING IT AS THE BASIS FOR A BOOK!!! Ahem, I believe this is my approximate reaction:





Also:


Please, please, please don't let it be Knaack writing it. Golden is better than him. Pleeeeease don't fuck this up. D:


Of course, even if it's Knaack, I'll be buying the damn book because he's my favorite racial leader for one of my favorite races. I'm that much of a fangirl.

Okay now that I'm done (mostly) squeeing about Vol'jin getting his own book, there's a couple of other questions and answers I spotted that are of interest to me.

Are we going to get more Old God lore in Mists?

I'll tackle the lore part of your question, about the Old Gods.

Obviously the Old Gods have had a major impact all over the world. They aren't directly pulling any strings in Pandaria, however, you can still feel the cold grip of their influence, many thousands of years later. If you're interested in the lore, you owe it to yourself to reach exalted with the Klaxxi faction to learn a little more about their origins.

And they aren't providing tabards for reputation gains for Pandaria factions, so you can't run dungeons for rep like you could in Cata. So, my approximate reaction to this is, "Fuuuuuck, now I have to do the rep grind and dailies." Who wants to join me?

Are Koltira Deathweaver and Sylvanas Windrunner showing up in Mists of Pandaria?

Sylvanas will DEFINITELY play a role in the Alliance and Horde conflict. We might not catch up with her until one of the later patches. We've been debating on whether or not we catch up with Koltira now or later... The guy's in bad straights.[sic]

Oh..my... This is going to suck, isn't it? It's going to make me bang my head against a wall, I just bet.
