Hello Gorfang!

Mr. Meh seems to have beaten me to the punch with his post about rolling Order on Gorfang. I’ve been in a rut with Warhammer Online lately, so last week I decided to try to shake it off by playing Order!

My highest level Order toon is rank 17-ish, but I’ve sworn off touching Badlands as my teeny way of helping with their population problem.

So, behold my itty bitty Witch Hunter and Rune Priest!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I’m most excited about getting a gyrocopter!

Happy Anniversary to Me!

In the midst of preparing to graduate and planning a wedding, I totally forgot that  WAR Bureau turned one year old on September 3.

Whoops!

Over the course of one year, I managed to write a measly 45 posts (including this one). Pathetic! Shame on you, Charlotte-Skaven-Witch-Elf-thing, shame!

My stats aren’t all that impressive given my tiny post count, but there are other more interesting things!

In the past year I

And so, I tip my hat to you kind readers for visiting and to Mythic for making such an awesome game.

After all, how many people can say that an MMO helped them pass not just one, but three college classes?

A World Beyond WAR

As of today, I have been in the guild The Murder Junkies on Volkmar for exactly one year!

To celebrate — and make up for a month of no posts — I’m sharing the final project I did for my online media production class last semester. It’s a Flash package showcasing some really striking scenery that I saw in Warhammer Online.

And, as a bonus, you also get to see my work-in-progress portfolio. When I get some time I’m planning on adding in a meta description like Rudepox suggested when I posted my last project.

I hope you enjoy looking at A World Beyond WAR.

Giant Slayer Items

For the past several months I have been wearing the Giant Slayer Corset on my Witch Elf. I’ve gotten rather bored with the look of it, but there’s no way I’m giving up its 6 percent melee crit any time soon.

Recently though I’ve been getting several tells from people asking where I got it. When I told the first person it dropped in the Screaming Cat instance in Altdorf, I realized that with the new city mechanic, Screaming Cat was no longer available as far as I knew.

According to a thread on the forums, the content has been taken out, but the devs want to put it back in…sometime…hopefully….

So I guess I’m a bit more appreciative now of my luck in landing that chestpiece then I ever was before.

Guild Update: ZOMG People!

It’s been a little over a month since I last posted about my guild, and there has been a massive improvement in that span of time.

TMJ has reached a nice, stable point where we average about 5-8 people on at a time. I’ve noticed that as the night stretches on into the time when I really should be in bed, more people start logging in. For example, last night when I helped some alliance members out in Blood/Bile around 1 a.m, I noticed we had 15 people online!

The last time I saw 15 people online was months and months ago!

The people who I see log on everyday are generally split down the middle. We have a few 40s from the old guard mixed with some brand new 40s (including one Chosen who found me in The Inevitable City and used his WAR Tract to ding  40 in front of me. Aww!). Then we have our up and coming members in Tiers 2 and 3 who are tons of fun to group up with on my tiny Shaman.

On the whole I think I got really lucky and ended up with a real solid group of quality players, not just in how they play their characters, but in how respectful they are. A few have made sure to let me know when they will be absent for an extended period so I don’t think they have left. Most ask my permission before taking items from the guild vault, and when they do they try to add something back into it, be it gold or another item.

I’m quite happy with where TMJ is right now and I’m glad I stuck out the rough patch to get here. Also, the fact that a Chosen came up to me and asked to join the guild after he had read my blog helped boost my spirits a lot <3

Hey you, kid in the gray shirt!

Way back in my first or second week of seventh grade, my tiny self was out on the soccer field during gym with my equally tiny peers. Suddenly, a girl yelled out, “Hey you, kid in the gray shirt!” to get the attention of one of the other students. Problem was, we were all wearing the same gray shirts.

Names are important.

I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to pick names for any toon I create in Warhammer. If after an hour I still can’t come up with a name that just fits the archmage I’m trying to make, I don’t play that archmage until I do. No random name generator for me, no sir.

Sometimes I read through lists of names online until I find one that sticks with me. Most of the time though the names I choose have some sort of meaning behind them for me.

Take my main toon, my Witch Elf Satsume. I had been asked before by an alliance mate if I was one of those people obsessed with Asian culture, explaining my name choice. While I do have an affinity for such things (my fiancé is half Korean after all…) the name Satsume has nothing to do with it.

SatsumaSatsume’s name before the great Vortex migration was Satsuma. As in, the name of the shower gel I bought from The Body Shop the summer after I graduated from high school. It smells amazing and I love it, so I gave the name to my Witch Elf when I bought WAR a few months later.

Same goes for my Shaman, Scarlets, and my Black Orc, Swoon. Scarlets is a play on my own name, a joke at how many times people have called me Scarlet instead of Charlotte. Swoon is the name of an awesome artist.

Plus, you have to admit Swoon is a funny name for a Blorc.

How about you guys? Do the names you pick for your toons have any special meaning or history behind them? Or do you go with the name generator and cross your fingers?
