Tako's Ride

Once upon a time, in the lush oasis in the middle of Desolace, Takoda was offered a lift by one of the centaurs. You know those centaurs—always bragging about their strength and prowess...

Journey's start...

Journey's end...

In case you're wondering, this is the quest. Did you see Khan's face? He's practically sweating from the weight of my itty bitty drood.

Ha, as if! I made him a male Tauren for his sheer size and sex appeal. /wicked grin

And Bitstrips Ensued...

For awhile there, everyone who was anyone (on Facebook) was trending with the Bitstrips "app". I, being the princesse, also dabbled with the comic strips, to express my frustration towards a few guildies—we won't name names now, right Berd?—with regards to the Legendary Cloak quest chain.

Berdine bullies Anou to continue the interminable quest chain.

Darger insists on helping with the group quests in the series.

"Will the quest chain NEVER END??!"

Berdine enjoys Anou's suffering far too much.

Tiger loots Anou while Anou tries to find her body in Naxx.

The Foothills

Dearest Hillsbrad,
How I loathed thee whilst leveling. Seriously. Bloody farmers. Farkin' alliance scum tearing up the NPCs at Tarren Mill. Ceaseless PvP bloodshed. Lions and spiders and bears, oh my! Need I say more?

Then, upon discovering Old Hillsbrad, I was so delighted to see how Tarren Mill had been during the age of humans. Comparing it to the present-time decrepit buildings run by corpses, the Hillsbrad I knew, was poignant to say the least!

Yet now, how I miss thee since the tragic Cataclysm. The ironic undead modernization; abandoned alliance territory falling into decay. Yes, you brought along Johnny Awesome and his "friends", an absorbing mini-game for amateur gardeners, and your new quests were the most entertaining in-game ever, but still...
It just isn't the same. I mourn the loss of you.

Sincerely yours, Anoukisse

Nope, Still Doesn't Want'im

Darger /snickers as the King of the Lich monologues.

Arthas blinks in disbelief, feeling robbed once again.

Remember back when I'd written about Fordring and Darger racing to Mass Rez? Well, we went back to the Citadel again, and... Well... Things didn't change. This time, still sporting half his hp, Darger even appeared to be taunting the Lich King with a "neerner-neener" from partly behind the ice block that was Fordring.

Tribute to Vikings

Back when WotLK came out, my first 'toon leveling through those zones was Anoukisse. At the time, my husband and I leveled our mains together, so she was always trekking along behind Hapis, a very wide-shouldered and sexy Tauren. Yummeh. Errr.. anyway... Since he was the leader, and I think because it was most convenient from the departure point we were at, we leveled from the Eastern side of the new continent.

My first impression of Howling Fjord was actually AMAZING! I loved the music in that zone, the graphics, the Northern Lights, I loved the giant viking-type NPCs (even if I had to kill them with fire) and their neat little villages. Dragons flying in the sky were just a bonus.

Recently, I went back there for my try at the mount in UP, and I saw the massive castle-like structure from a different angle, and I just had to take a snap of it for posterity.

One day, Ragnar will be king, and he will hold this castle as his own. And Anou will visit him. >:) But I will not be writing about that interlude. /cackle
