Thanks to Jaedia I came across Sorry Caps’ questionnaire. I hate questionnaires but I am bored, so here goes:
1. Raider, farmer, PvPer, or altoholic?
Umm, where’s the option for “Parks in Dalaran and guildchats”. If I had to choose, probably Raider. I am after all the guildmaster of a casual raiding guild, guess I better like raiding hey?
2. Favorite raid or dungeon?
Raid has to be the TBC raid stuff. SSC, Hyjal, etc. Dungeon I’d have to say the old Strat and Scholo. So many good memories there.
3. Number one choice for a new playable race?
I’m a bit sad about the whole goblin thing, so I’ll be sticking to my undeads. My #1 for Cata will be rerolling my hunter as undead.
4. Class you suck the most at?
Anything caster pewpew – I just can’t seem to dps properly. There was a phase in TBC when my shadowpriest rocked, but that was more a fluke than anything else.
5. Original UI or modded UI?
Modded. Heavily so.
6. Profession you’ve never levelled past 200?
Jewelcrafting. I’ve just never had the char for it.
7. Favorite flying mount?
I still prefer my old Wyrmrest red drake. It feels more streamlined than the Protos.
8. Nozdormu — friend or foe, you figure?
Veering toward an alliance.
9. Useless item you have in your bank that you’ll never get rid of?
My T1, T2, T4, T5, T6, T7 (Yeah no T3 ). Smokey’s Lighter. A collection of hats. A collection of awesome looking weapons that I’ll never use. My DPS set…
10. Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought?
Hmmm, I don’t really buy much. If i take it according to inflation it would have to be the Skullflame Shield I bought back when we started raiding ZG/MC. Cost me 400g, which was more than I ever had at that time. Heck I didn’t have epic mount till level 64.
11. Favorite starting area?
Undead for sure. The lore is so rich you need to cut it with a spoon.
12. Inane goal you worked hardest to achieve?
Letting others believe I’m a great tank.
13. Darion Mograine VS Tirion Fordring, gloves off — winner is?
Can’t be arsed with them to be honest. Blah blah human whiners whining at each other. Let Garrosh and Saurfang take care of it already!
14. Game music or your own playlist?
Ah, depends on my mood at the time. Generally it’s ingame music but occasionally I’ll put on some farming music.
15. Particular option or setting that you always toggle on a new alt/server?
First thing I do is turn off all my addons. Then as I play I slowly start turning them back on as I need them.
16. Highest amount of levels gained in one play session?
20-30? Not sure. I’ve sat through some heavy leveling sessions but most of them were at higher levels where it’s slow. My most insane was when my brother and I took a week off work to level to 80 on Wrath’s launch. We missed server first by about an hour because we overslept on the last day.
17. Thing you’d most like to experience or see in-game?
Proper scaling of the old dungeons and raids. I’m happy that they’re redoing some of the old content (feels a bit like cheating really) but I’d like to see stuff like SSC, TK, Hyjal, Kara automatically move to the next bracket as expansions are released.
18. Worst PuG moment?
I honestly don’t pug much so this is a hard one… I guess that 25man ICC I was in once. The “maintank” kept telling the other two tanks (myself and a good friend) that we sucked at moving on Marrowgar, yet both of us were following his “left-right” sequence and he wasn’t.
19. Best dungeon/raid moment?
Downing Leotheras the Blind after he had bugged out on us. That sod gave me so many grey hairs.
20. Worst quest ever that you totally hate doing?
I love questing, preferably on my own. Probably the most irritating quest would be the tortoise escort quest in Tanaris though. It’s just too damn long!
21. First thing you do when you hit 80?
Go /g Ding… oh no wait, they removed the need for that didn’t they? Umm, go train I guess. And then be broke for a long time while I try to scrounge enough gear together to be decent enough in Heroics.
22. Character (of yours) you would RP as if you had to?
Itasu, Daikaiju and Pindleskin all have a decent back story to them. Itasu is my fave RP character though.
23. Keyboard, mouse, or both for using abilities?
Keyboard for the 15 most important abilities, mouse side buttons for some parts of my tanking rotation and mouse click for the “use once every 3 minutes” abilities.
24. Thottbot or WoWhead?
Either, whatever comes up first in my search.
25. Acronym you’ve seen in chat but don’t understand?
Can’t think of any, sorry.
26. Plot point you’d like to see resolved someday?
Not really a plot point, but I’d like to know more about Chromie (Hiding in that house in Western Plaguelands). There’s probably some explanation that I just haven’t seen, guess I’ll look into it someday.
27. Biggest thing you’re looking forward to in Cataclysm?
The great changes to guilding and the fact that 10/25 share loot. It means my 10man group can be just as imba geared as the 25man elitist sods.
28. Guild event you’d like to see?
One where everyone actually shows up…
29. Level range you hate being in?
45-55 and 65-75 just feels so dead to me. Most of the quests are long chains or huge grinds and the leveling just seems arduous. These are the points I’m most inclined to give up on an alt.
30. Favorite map to quest in?
I like most of the Eastern Kingdoms, barring the southern areas (STV and the surrounding alliance lands). Arathi Highlands, Hilsbrad Foothills and Badlands are my favourites though.
