Thank You Twisted Nether Blogcast!
It took me a few years, but I finally got the “Elder” title.
I was inspired by many of the other bloggers of late. Many have attained different achievements for various things. I decided to take a look at how far along I was. It took a bit of flying, but I’m glad I did it.
Now, my dirty little secret is this:
I didn’t do it for the title, or even the accomplishment.
I did it for the pet the Lantern!
You see, I was busy finding the Elders for the coins to purchase it. That was when, coupled with the achievements of others I’ve been reading, I decided to look at how far along I was.
I’m glad I did. It is nice to finally have it done.
I also was able to get some Pet Battle Achievements as well.
I’m beginning to understand how achievement hunting can get addicting.
This has been fun!
My intention was two fold:
First, I wanted some pets high enough in level so that I could participate in Pet Battles while leveling in MoP.
Secondly, I got the itch to actually do the Pet Battle quest line. At the end of the quest line, I ended up with these (and more) pet achievements!
I plan on going back later and filling in the missing achievements. Thus far, this has been very enjoyable!
I’m currently in the process of taming every new critter I come across as I level through MoPs. You can click here to see what I’ve been up to lately.
Even though my computer has been wonky, I’ve still been able to get some questing done.
So far so good!
Now, if only my computer would stop trying to die on me.
I’m taking my time and enjoying the game.
I hope that you are enjoying everything that you desire in your World of WoW!
Colleen Lackowicz is a is running for a State Senate spot in Maine. However, the Republican Party ran an attack emphasizing that she is a WoW Player! No, I’m not linking the attack
Anyway, I find this whole thing really sticking in my craw.
For full disclosure, I’m a Texan. I tend to vote Republican.
Does that shock anyone?
What the Main Republican party is doing is surreal! I just don’t get it.
I would hate to be attacked based on my WoW playing. Can you imagine the “Huntard” jokes playing the airwaves? How many times have any of us said something in jest, that someone else will spin into something it wasn’t?
What about our WoW specific language? As one person already pointed out “Progressive” in WoW means something different than in our polarized political climate.
In my gut, I feel that the Main Republican Party is wrong in what they are doing.
Can I just be honest and say, contemporary politics are getting more and more absurd?
I wonder if they ever met Stephen Gillett. He is in leadership at Best Buy, and had been the CIO of Starbucks. Apparantly, playing WoW has been a plus for him!
And finally, I want to leave you with this Colbert Video of Jane McGonigal. She also believes that gaming has positive effects in the real world.
WordPress doesn’t allow the video to be viewed in the blog, so you have to just click the link and see it on the Colbert website.
Here are Colleen Lachowics social/websites.
I’ve been unable to find a paypal button to give to her campaign.
If someone figures out where to send a check, please let me know.
