Triple Blog Challenge

 

I am so far behind, but now I have decided to set some time off, and do all of 2018Β΄s challenges in one bus ride!

I shall be as time efficient as can be πŸ™‚

 

 


 

First, the lovely ladies of Cinder and Zeirah wanted to know of my 2018 Bucket List. It was good fun to read the rest of you guys’!

 

Topic 30: 2018 Bucket List

Challenge7.jpg

 

 

What is it you want to get done before 2019? Time to share with us! We’d love to know!

 

Generally I stay away from Bucket Lists, because, 1. I tend to not be able to accomplish what I decide to note down, and 2. I tend to forget about the existance of said Bucket List. (Like my To Do List. It’s so outdated. Some goals I have accomplished months ago!)

 

But let’s give it a try. For me, this year will be the year I catch up. On MoP and Draenor, and Legion too. I took a long break from end of Cataclysm and to Legion, so, yeah.

 

  1. Maintain my To Do List (See what I did there…)
  2. Get a sense of being “done” with Legion. This means…
  3. Finish quests lines in all the zones in Legion..
  4. Obtain the Mounts and Pets
  5. Do some serious work on Prestige Levels.
  6. Fish a little with those buddies around the Broken Isles.
  7. Look into Family Fighter
  8. Get better at ignoring the weekly and daily activities WoW has to “offer”
  9. Get the last Druid Tier set the game will ever see!
  10. Do some Archaeology. I always wanted to.
  11. But in order to help me remember to also just have fun and do whatever I feel like doing, I want to include: Do at least one Ocean adventure every month!
  12. Begin to collect pets across all of the World(s)
  13. Immerse myself more often – do less minimizing when gaming (as in minimizing to check Wowhead, Windows.( Focus on one thing at the time!
  14. Play catch up in Mop and Draenor!
  15. Log in sometimes and do something I normally never do
  16. Get better at organizing get togethers with friends in game

 

Ok, this could easily go on. I think I better stop now, so I have a chance of saying “check” to at least some of it, when 2018 comes to an end πŸ™‚

 


 

 

Ok. Next topic! Cinder and Zeirah asks which mount is my favorite.

 

Topic 31: What’s your favourite mount?

 

What is your favourite mount, and why?

 

Oh, this one was not easy. But inspiration from the rest of you helped me along, because I can see, I was not the only one having trouble picking just ONE mount.

As a Druid though, I guess, Travel Form will always have priority for me. Transforming into an animal will always feel more natural to me, than mounting up.

However! If I should chose a mount (or a form I would simply adore shifting into) it is this one:

Challenge2

 

Or this…

Challenge4

 

Or, okay, you are sensing the theme?

Challenge3

 

Oh, my beloved Hippogryphs. If only I could get them all!

 

As for ground mounts, I would have to say…

My gorgeous Talbuks. The Kurenai was in fact the first “dedicated” reputation grind I ever decided to do.

Challenge5

 

The Wild Dreamrunner was a close runner up, but the way the original Talbuks from the Burning Crusade looks has completely won me over (those from Draenor does not run as smoothly)

Challenge1

 


 

Okay then. Almost caught up. Well done, me.

Onto topic 32 and Allied Races.

 

Topic 32: Allied Races

 

Cinder and Zeirah asks…

Are youΒ playing any of the new allied races?

AND

If you could choose the next allied race, what would it be?

 

I guess this one is a somewhat short challenge for me, because, no, I am not playing any of the new Allied Races. I’m not much of an Alt-type of lady anymore, I suppose.

Too little time, too many goals on my main πŸ™‚ But before we became parents, I had plenty of alts though. And if I had the time, I think I would chose a Void Elf caster on Alliance, and a Highmountain Tauren Druid (doh) on the Horde side. I might, some day πŸ™‚

I think a Highmountain Tauren could really be a character, I could see myself relax on. I just have a hard time warming up to their new look (which came in Warlords of Draenor…)

But if I could chose the next Allied Race, I would say Tuskarr!

I just think, they are super cute. But I would worry that Blizzard would have them similar to Pandaren, and they would be leaning towards the “silly, laughable, barrel tossing, beer-drinking” . type. That would be a shame. I would like to see them introduced in a better way, if they ever do become an Allied Race.

 

As for Allied Races in general, I am have #UnpopularOppinion to share. I do not like the concept. I can totally see why they are a thing though, it’s a win-win situation for Blizzard and most customers, it’s just not up my alley. I think we have a ton of varieties and options, when it comes to races already, and it’s beginning to be too crowdy for my taste. But, that is just me πŸ™‚

 


 

Gosh, would you look at that, I actually made it. I am caught up. Here you go, Cinder and Zeirah! And me!

Good feeling that gave πŸ˜€

 

Thank you so much for staying tuned and take good care of each other and enjoy your week πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ Oh, yes, I remember you saying that. I just always go back to Hippogryphs (but it is rare I use anything but our travel forms, really) I had hoped our Class “mount” was a Hippogryph.

    1. It’s not always easy to find a balance, is it πŸ™‚ I guess a little bit of both is best. I write most posts on the go from and to work. Screenshots are editted and put into posts beforehand, so all I have to do is write πŸ™‚

  1. I love those hippogryphs, too. I got the Horde Sunreaver Dragonhawk at the Argent Tournament just so that my Alliance characters would receive the Silver Covenant Hippogryph without having to work for it πŸ˜›

    Tuskarr Tuskarr Tuskarr! Roly-poly lady Tuskarr with those big fat braids on their heads instead of their chins would be so cute! And they should still totally have mustaches and big thick eyebrows, too. Just somewhat smaller, cuter ones.

    I am of mixed opinions about the Allied Races. On the one hand, I think it’s a pretty neat idea. I’m so excited to play Highmountain Tauren and Void Elves — and any other new Allied Races that I think are really cool, such as Taunka, Yaungol, Tuskarr. If those husky Kul Tiran humans become an Allied Race, I just might race-change Kaylynda to one, because I love the body shape, faces, and hairstyles of the women. On the other hand, the multiplicity of them already gives me Alt Fatigue just thinking about it. I appreciate the brown Draenor Orcs becoming an Allied Race because I know that people have been wanting to play brown Orcs ever since Burning Crusade — but am I going to roll one? Nope.

    1. Oh, my, you really do love them so then πŸ™‚ Nice trick with the Horde-Alliance version.

      Aw. yeah, glad I am not the only one in favor of Tuskarr πŸ™‚

      Oh, I have not seen the Kul Tiran humans that closely yet.

      At this point I feel as if every single NPC introduced to the game will become an Allied Race :/ Though I do get it from the players point of view, who have been asking for the Orcs for example for very long.

  2. TUSKARR??? You’ve got to be kidding me, Alunaria! How could you choose Tuskarr over Arakkoa? I can never look at your blog the same way again. πŸ˜›

    Anyway, that was a great bucket list. The Worgen’s Howl podcast asked a similar ‘New Years Resolution’ question, and I didn’t really manage to come up with anything interesting. I did manage to get my monk’s Antorus tier set.

    I remember feeling the same way about the Talbuks back in BC. That was on my old account that I no longer use, unfortunately. Makes me want to go get them again. Great mounts, despite being so old.

    1. Yeah! I’m sorry, Zeshio, I’m all about the Tuskarrs!

      Oh, aww podcasts. Something to be added to the list to remind myself to listen to.

      Hm, what qualifies as interesting, though? πŸ™‚

      I cannot imagine anything ever taking the place of Talbuks. Too bad we are EU/US divided. We could grind that Kurenai rep so swiftly. I have to someday, to unlock the look of the Kilt on Alunaria.

      The Talbuks from Draenor are just too bulky and not riding smoothly enough, I think.
