I originally created this blog because I liked World of Warcraft a lot, and I seem to have a hard time not talking about the things I like. At the same time I've always hated to bore people with stories that don't interest them, which is why the WoW-related posts on my personal blog quickly started to feel out of place. The obvious solution: a new blog, dedicated to WoW only.
My posts mostly consist of a mix of stories about experiences I've had in the game and more general ponderings about its development. I try to maintain a balance between using this as my personal in-game diary and just looking at the game as something abstract. I generally don't write guides - they are useful, but in a blog format they are not something I personally care to read or write.
As far as WoW credentials go, I started playing in late Vanilla, with my first character hitting level sixty a few weeks before the release of the Burning Crusade. I switched from Alliance to Horde pretty early on, though I still played characters on both sides of the fence throughout the next two expansions. I also raided on what I'd consider a medium progression level for years but gave up on it about halfway through Cataclysm due to dissatisfaction with the raiding game. I eventually quit the game in early 2012, until early information about the Warlords of Draenor expansion piqued my interest again and I returned for a brief stint in Mists of Pandaria. This interest did not last however, as I realised that I just feel no connection to the live game anymore and only pine for the way it used to be in the old days. Nowadays I only update this blog to get random thoughts about WoW news off my chest and to give the occasional update about me dabbling on the private Vanilla server Kronos.
Mainly I play and write about other games these days though, most notably Star Wars: The Old Republic and Neverwinter Online.
In real life I'm a 32-year-old Austrian living in England. I moved in order to live with my now ex-boyfriend, whom I met through WoW, but stayed because I met... other nice people.
I read all the comments people leave, but I'm not always very good at replying to them since I hate to artificially increase my comment count by saying things like "oh yes, I agree". Do know that if you do decide to leave a message, it does get read and appreciated. You can also email me at _Irish_ at sms.at if you want to contact me.
