The Leibster Awards You and I!

“For those of you who do not know what this Liebster thing is all about: The Liebster Award is a small token of appreciation given to bloggers for doing what they do best and also a way for bloggers to learn about other bloggers. We are all connected in the great circle of… blogging!”- via MrandMrsWoW

Surprise surprise! I love surprises, I know the Leibster Awards was going on lately around the blogging community and I was also curious about it. It's really a wonderful meme for everyone to join in but someone has to nominate you first then you nominate others, It still question me who really started the whole thing I know this awards probably been going on for years now. But the fact that someone nominated you and recognized you as a blogger that just validate your efforts that someone enjoys reading your blog and that they love sharing your thoughts with the community.

I personally like to thank Thela/Jstmel from MoMar Blog for the nomination! I really appreciate it, never knew someone would even nominate me, because I was away for a while and that includes my blogging been so late with updates, but after the break decided to be back and I guess that shows my dedication again that I can do this. So for those who doesn't know what this is all about Please read the Rules first! Note: Most rules applies with less than 1,000 followers to be nominated, I also read with less than 200 followers, I choose 200 because this way new bloggers will be recognized around the community. Please follow MoMar's Blog! =)

Okay so Jstmel asked these 11 questions for me to answer, here goes! I apologized in advance if this blog post seems to be so long, Also, for those who didn't know yet that I am actively blogging over at AmerPriest blog, I will post a logo of the award there to linked here as well. After answering the questions I will also share 11 random facts about Me, oh my!

  1. How did you get started playing WoW (World of Warcraft)?
    • I started playing World of Warcrft when my ex-bf introduced it to me, while him and his bestfriend started playing it. I was still playing Ragnarok Online at that time. Until I decided i should give it a try but I never register an account on my own yet, So I made a priest on my ex-bf account. It was during pre-bc so far I really liked it. And after a week I finally made and paid my own account. World of Warcraft was my first MMORPG.
  2. What other games were you playing when you discovered WoW?
    • I was playing AION, Rift and Forsaken World. These are also types of MMORPG. I didn't last playing with them and still brings me back to World of Warcraft. I guess because I have more friends in WoW and I realized that it's hard to also play two accounts, two mmorpg and two subscription every month. So i decided to stick with WoW.
  3.  Did you create your blog because of WoW or another reason?
    • Yes, I created my blog because of World of Warcraft. I began blogging back in Burning Crusade probably it was around year of 2006-2007 mid year. My first blog titled was Christine's Blog, then i renamed it, deleted the blog and I created Amerence Love WoW, and then I updated AmerPriest Blog. 
    • So I am managing two sites now. Blogging for everyone is source of an outlet to share thoughts about the game, your characters and other sort of things. You also get to meet bloggers and other players not just here in US but whole world and I loved that idea.  Also, being a Blog Azeroth Forums moderator helping the community as well, is an honor too.
  4. What is your least favorite zone and why?
    • The least favorite zone is Thousand Needles, I guess because after the Cataclysm expansion the aftermath was very devastating that the whole world of Azeroth was shaken and thousand needles didn't escape the wrath. It pretty much destroyed the whole zone and that now a days all you pretty much see mostly there is surrounded with just water. It's depressing really.
  5. What old raid/dungeon do you miss most and why?
    • The old raid and dungeon I really do miss is Karazhan located around Deadwind Pass area, that you can easily get there from Duskwood. Burning Crusade days was totally fun raiding there. I miss that zone, not to mention you can still go there to farm the Firey Darkhorse mount off from first boss. The place is still huge the fights are always fun. 
  6. If you could be a dungeon/raid boss, what would your tag lines (the things you would shout at players as they beat upon you) be?
    • If I could be a dungeon raid boss, I like to be a "Lady Dragonia". I always love dragon figures, or something about them just very legendary, epic, old and classic. Maybe one of my taglines will be "I am Lady Dragonia, one of the guardians of Azeroth, thou shall not speak unkindly to me" "My Fire breath will vanish your existence." "Behold, The power of Lady Dragonia, You adventurer will be punished!" - I don't know something like that haha.
  7. Do you recall your first feelings about WoW and what were they?
    • My First feelings about WoW was excitement and commitment I guess because without it I will not be playing this game for more than 8yrs now. Just tells you that despite some time off, I still keep coming back for more and able to accomplish things with dedication and commitement either to myself, to my previous and current guilds, to my friends. Excitement brings lots of positive attitude while playing the game and to have fun.
  8. What aggrivates you most about WoW as it is today and why?
    • I was just talking about this last month when I was still in PvP server. It aggrivates me when I wanted to quest peacefully and a horde is camping you and kills you. I understand the concept of the game but its really no fun anymore when someone tries to stop that from you, its wasting time to finish a quest because you can't barely moved on. This was why I moved all my 90's in PvE server now so I ddin't have to worry about it. 
  9. Horde or Alliance and why?
    • Always been an Alliance since i started playing the game. I guess because most of my friends are alliance and the reason why I never played a horde. Maybe someday I will play a Horde character see how things on that side as well. 
  10. What is your favorite movie and why?
    • This question seems so easy but it's actually hard as I watched so many movies lately, but the most recent one that i consider a favorite this year was "Frozen, The Walt Disney animated movie" - Why? Because Its a modernized animated film, not like the old classic fairy tale ending with prince charming and stuff, its about the Queen of the land and its people. Her suffering, her magical powers just the whole movie was fun, adventurous, and very entertaining. Not only that My current ring tone on my phone is the movie soundtrack "Let it go" but a musical like music box version of the song.
  11. What is your favorite song and why?

Shared Topic Idea: Questing with your alts!

HI guys, First of the shared topic ideas are now bi-weekly. We wanted to share the topics more to bloggers who like to share there thoughts as 1 week seems to be too short. So we like to invite bloggers out there to participate and have fun! You can also share any idea for us to talk about. 

From week March 15-28, was contributed by Dragonray of Azerothian Life its all about "Questing with your alts" more info check out @blog azeroth forums. a few bloggers already shared there thoughts. Tomorrow is the deadline so what are you waiting for? join us!

For me, Questing with my alt toons are fun. not only that you benefit from knowing what zones where to go make it a lot faster. And that using heirloom items as they are bind on account heirlooms makes the experience killing mobs far more useful than how i leveled my main toon back then. 

I enjoyed leveling my alt toons, from acquiring gears to finishing quest lines and getting achievements why not? This way you also able to learn how to play your class better. But you see, now a days are a lot different you can skip questing in one area just because how fast to acquire experience now a days its not even per level, per zone idea now. Not to mention, the new promo for boosting your character to level 90, and benefit from having your professions leveled up as well if you do boost at level 60.

But in my case, I leveled and quested with my Rogue, Death Knight, Mage, and working on shaman now. I dont count my monk as she was a boosted character but she has been leveling her professions though, because i ddint got her to level 60 to boosted her so the professions part didn't count so as the flight path. But i still enjoy playing my monk and that by leveling her profession i still benefit from getting the flight paths, learning her skills and all that.

I recently did introduced all my 5 level 90s that Im proud of over at my other blog in Amerpriest blog. As that will give you an idea how they are. I know sometimes its hard to quest with alt toons, sometimes you don't even know which one first. But lately, I have been focusing on my main toon, but secondly my DK as I really enjoyed her as a Frost spec. 

Questing with alt toons is like never ending if you really wanna know that. because you still catching up. One toon after one toon. you quest dailies, weeklies, normal quests from zones you didn't finish, rep grinding, But for anything just enjoy what you do and you'll be fine. Have fun like always! treat your characters like each one of them are like your main toons. Timeless isle seems to be the great place for alt toons to pick up equivalent of tier 14 gears out there so take advantage as gears you pick up are Bind on account as well.

Anyway, That's all folks. Please enjoy playing the game! Don't forget to join our bi-weekly shared topic ideas... For next week we will talk about Timeless isle idea by yourstruly. See you then! and Good luck questing with your alts!

Shared Topic Idea: My Most Memorable Boss Kill

Hi guys, this shared topic idea was brought to you by dragonray of Azerothian Life, it seems like its been back and forth between me and her sharing topics every week lately, Please I do encourage all bloggers out there to join and share any topics you think we can discuss around the community, just please go to Blog Azeroth Forums for more info

Anyway, this week's topic is about most memorable boss kill. I was going through some of my old boss kill videos i made back in 2009 during ToGC raids with FACTION CHAMPIONS in 25 man Normal Mode. It was fun times. I was with Eternal Sacrifice guild then in Khaz Modan server when we killed these bosses. It was memorable because not only i was able to catch the videos of these fights, I was able to do it with guild that I had fun with. 

This fight was very memorable not only that we had to fight 4 bosses, all of us was running around the room, I was playing my priest here as discipline spec. my job was to dispell, bubbles, and heals as well. as you can see in this video. All bosses are and players also running around but with symbols on bosses head we know who to kill first, Tanks and healers really did a great job and so as the dpsers.. Hope you guys will enjoy watching it. I really had fun times with my guild when we killed it. This expansion was great and we always looking forward to raid because the arena and killing of these bosses was kinda hard but challenging because its a close encounter in a closed space.

Anyway, Hope you can still catch up on joining this week shared topic idea by dragonray. Please refer links posted above for more information. Tomorrow is the last day for this week's topic idea. Thanks again for dropping by! as always Happy gaming everyone! catch me on twitter as well @amerpriest.
