So far I’m pleasantly surprised.
My Nightelf is perhaps a tad too square jawed but I can live with that. I haven’t tried healing but am currently beating Orcs up on a 90 Druid and am heartily enjoying the experience. Would I want to do it 20 times, probably not but so far it’s been interesting and I’ve met some fascinating people along the way.
I rather like the fact that the women did the fighting for once and having a Warden along for the ride… well that’s pretty awesome.
Also blood drinking Toucans are a wonderful touch and everything I’ve seen so far is extremely pretty if slightly gruesome.
In fact I think Shadowmoon Valley mark 2 might easily become one of my favourite zones in game.
The potential for transmogrification also seems interesting as my new character received this very quickly:
Yep, a staff with a cluster of adorable little bugs flying around it’s end.
All in all, I find myself looking forward to the release.

We’ve finally finished our first play through of Wolfenstein and despite it’s somewhat dark subject matter, there is no denying it’s a stunning game.

It’s time for another installment of Tycertank’s ever so slightly addictive A Screenshot a Day series.
Day 5 – Square
An almost square dock (if you ignore the other bits)
Day 6 – C is for Corpse

Reading WoWinsider earlier whilst playing around with screenshots, the answer to this question came to me in a flash of inspiration.
If you could add any one thing to your Garrison that would make it truly feel like “home” to your character, what would it be?
I want customizable options, mounts displayed in the stables, my own four poster bed and a kennel with a little bowl outside sure but I’d sacrifice all that for the ability to hang up screenshots of friends and guildmates in my own private place. The walls of my house are hung with pictures of those I love (and those I happen to share a blood tie with). There is Mr Harpy holding a crocodile and my Mother aged 5 hanging out a beach with attitude. There is me at my cousin’s christening clutching the baby like he’s my newest doll side by side with assorted friends and family. On my phone I have my niece dressed up as a Disney Princess and my colleagues drunkenly doing the conga. We have album after album of photographs because they hold locked with their inks so many precious memories so why can’t that be recreated in our garrisons.
I could understand Blizzard not necessarily wanting to upload all 10 000 ish of my screenshots so there would have to be a limit or possibly the addition of a small camera into the game interface which would allow you to take shots like this one:
Possibly it would only be available at certain times, i.e. after boss kills or when you get an achievement although that might limit your ability to take shots of friends. I would prefer the ability to upload edited shots to a certain size but I suspect some experimenting would have to be done.
Basically I want personal pictures of my friends, guild-mates, pets and mounts to make my garrison feel like home as opposed to some functional building that I’ll abandon half way through the expansion when the novelty wears off and I get tired of living in a box.
(No I’m not demanding or anything).

It’s another installment of Tycertank’s ever so slightly addictive A Screenshot a Day series. Of these months I will actually manage to illustrate all the prompts.
Day 2 – Favourite
This had to be my favourite race – the Harpies. Here I am looking up at this one in awe!
Day 3 – Something Orange
Day 4 – Childhood
This little orc trapped in the time out pen of bones pretty much sums up my childhood.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained or so they say. Yep, it’s February’s WoWscreenshot A Day Challenge. There are two pluses this time around, the lack of days in February and the fact that I’m actually starting on Day 1!
Day 1 – You
Here is Snowflower back in all her Night Elf glory stopping off in the swamp whilst hunting down archaeology digs.

Day 12 – Colourful
Day 13 – Makes me Smile
Day 14 – Three Things

I was flicking through my blogroll and when I came across Tycertank’s January Screenshot Challenge. Now I can think of at least five good reasons why I should have carried on going without giving a second glance but always a sucker for screenshots, I found myself “oohing” over the prompts. Given that I’m back to work tomorrow, it’s highly unlikely my prompts will be posted promptly but I will try to make it to the end of the month one way or another.
Day 1 – Lunch
The Draenei have the best food.
Day 2 – Begins with G
Day 3 – My Town
It had to be Darnassus.
Day 4 – Words to Live By
I’ve loved this quote ever since I first encountered it on the Wrath Beta. It’s partly why I like defending in Isle of Conquest, got to keep my hero alive.
Day 5 – Found
This storeroom was a recent discovery for me and I’m glad I’ve found it. In fact it might be my secret hideout whenever I’m in the Valley.

Twenty-One Days, starting today, December 1, of things in Azeroth of Light Screenshots, from now until December 21. This works for both sides of the equator, seeing how we’re getting darker days in the North, the South is getting lighter. The only hitch I will add is you have to add a caption or haiku to your screenshot.
The topic/theme is light, and all its incarnations.
In that land where a princess sits under lock and key,
Pining behind massive walls.
There gardens surround a palace all of glass;
There Firebirds sing by night
And peck at golden fruit;
“Hope’s fire grows when the flames come together.”
For some reason, this little shrine in amongst the farmlands struck a cord with me. Whilst I was flying around trying to make friends with everyone on the farm, I would often stop by and whisper a prayer or two of my own.
Thank you Matty for suggesting this because focusing on things light and airy in these long dark days has helped, not only to spark my imagination but to lift my emotions too.
