For years my main was a nightelf druid called Oronil. It’s what most people still know me by. Every time I serverhop I make a new character named Oronil. The name is as much part of me as my real life name.
I got this name 6 years ago. My then boyfriend was into Dungeons and Dragons and had a half-dragon character named Oronil. I loved the name and when WoW was released I knew that I should have that name for my first character. To be fair, I did spell it wrong. It was supposed to be Orronil, but I left one r out.
It’s weird that just seeing the name brings a smile to my face. It brings back very fond memories of my first years in WoW, when I started to forge friendships with people I still talk to today. It reminds me of the time when I started to interact with my now-husband under that name.
I don’t have very fond memories of that boyfriend, but the name is mine now and I’m claiming it as my own. However, I am not using the name any longer. I have returned to my old server to see things on the alliance side (even if I still have lots of fun on my horde server.) I don’t raid so I don’t see why I should stick to one faction/server. I did notice that I’m very hesitant of using Oronil for any of my new alliance characters on my old server. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I don’t always want people to know who I am. There are some individuals on my old server who I really dislike and I don’t want to interact with them whatsoever. Using my old name would only draw attention and I just want to level in peace. But it is tempting to use my old name again.
I am struggling with this question. There are a lot of good emotes in this game, but I hardly use any at all. I guess if I look at my past I’d go for the /dance emote. Especially in pvp or when someone in a dungeon dies. I tend to start dancing on their corpse. Trust me, that’s a lot better than the emotes I used to make back in the days of Molten Core when some of my guildies died in the raid and I decided that ‘teabagging’ as a kitty was funny. I made a whole macro emote for it and all. I was quite the pervert back then… in fact I still have some very disturbing emotes/macro’s somewhere.
When the /cower came out I found it hilarious to see it on my moonkin. I couldn’t stop laughing and I guess it is still a favourite of mine. Like I said, it’s not my best question to answer, but it’ll do.
On more interesting news: I just recorded show 3 of Girls gone WoW and I’m really happy with the result. It just needs some editing and music and we’re ready to bang it onto Itunes. I just wish I knew how to make it a bit more noticeable to the wide world. Anyone have some amazing tips how to reach more listeners?
A few days ago I would have said Thrall. I would have gone on and on about how I loved his background story and how I loved how much he cares for his people. I have to admit that Christie Golden has influenced me a lot when it comes to loving Thrall and orcs as much as I do now (and Metzen of course after stating Thrall was “Green and Sexy”).
However, as of a few days I found an Npc whose background I find fascinating and so dark that I’m hoping Blizzard will give her an even bigger role in Warcraft. I’m talking about Lilian Voss. Her background story is here on Wowpedia and after watching some of the video’s surrounding her questline it is clear to me that this will be my favourite NPC.
She’s betrayed and everything she believed in has been taken away from her. The fact that she has the coolest deathgrip animation and can make people burst into purple flames just add to her scary-factor. Sylvanas move over, I want this twisted chick leading the undead! (I know it’s never going to happen, but I do hope she’s getting a bigger role in due time).
Ow and she reminds a lot of people of a character from Magic: the Gathering.
I was very close to deleting this blog entirely. I had a long and hard think about what I wanted to achieve with this blog and I realised I wasn’t writing for myself, which is silly. This blog should mostly be just for me, myself and I. Then I also started to realise I wasn’t happy with the podcast. It’s taking too much time out of my life when I should be doing things that could help my future; like drawing and working with Photoshop a hell of a lot more.
Will I continue the podcast? Perhaps… I am not sure what to do at the moment. If my co-hosts decide to contact me because they really want to make another show I will, but for now I’m putting my effort into my other projects: writing and drawing. I guess getting rid of this blog would be silly. I need to practice writing in English again and at least this way I also have a place to archive all my stories and see if I progress at all with my ways of writing. Now comes the second part, will I keep this name for my journal? I am not sure if it suits me any more, but actually finding a new name for the blog has proven even more difficult. Human Moose stands for the druid I used to be for years and I believe that deep down I still am one, even if now I’m mostly playing two goblin caster girls. I will see how things are moving along during this year and perhaps I will start to feel comfortable again with this name or I might find an amazing new name just lying somewhere on my cluttered desk.
So the new years resolutions…. I’ve made a lot for myself this year and they weren’t really based on wow. However, in the light of refreshing my blog I can make some for WoW too. So here goes:
I guess that would sum it all up nicely. If any of you who read this (if people read it at all that is ;P) have any advice on the podcast-issue or the blog problems, I would love to hear your input and ideas or perhaps you can guide me to a post where people talk about it and have dealt with their problems.
In a happier note: I wish everyone an amazing 2011 and I hope that all your dreams and goals will be achieved! Happy gaming!

A bit late, but I did manage to squeeze out this post for Blog Azeroth:
1. Disk or Download?
Disk. I’m a collector of the CE’s and this one wasn’t going to be any different. I love this little tradition I made.
2. Did you experience any difficulties? IE: Login servers crashing, late delivery, etc?
The patching was a huge issue. Mostly because my router is really bad. It keeps disconnecting me and the only way I can solve it is by restarting my computer…until I was told there was a better methord *facepalm*
3. What are you doing first? IE: Speed leveling to 85, rolling a new race, completely avoiding the new content, etc?
I’ve rolled a new goblin warlock and I’m playing her from level 1. Taking my time and enjoying all the new things. I also rolled all the new toons I wanted to and when I’m done with my warlock I’ll level them.
4. Mt. Hyjal or Vash’jir?
I’m not sure yet. I’ve heard different opinions and I’m leaning towards Vash’jir. I guess I love to see more about the world of the naga’s.
5. Worgen or Goblin?
Goblin, but I do love the worgen and their Gilneas too. I just have a weak for goblins.
6. Questing, dungeons or both?
Mostly questing and now and again doing dungeons. I love what they did with the old instances. Except for gnomeregan. I don’t know what it is, but that one still drives me bonkers.
7. What was the first piece of gear you replaced and with what?
None really, considering I’m starting from level 1. I do love the time Blizzard put into naming some simple pieces of gear that goblins get in their starting area.
8. Did you take any time off from work or school?
I work for the mail and considering Christmas is their most hectic time I wasn’t allowed any time off. Because of that I hardly have levelled/played. It’s alright, I knew this was going to happen. Now I just stare at my computer at work and hope it will be replaced by wow on my screen soon.
9. Will you be keeping the same spec and main, or changing to a different toon?
I do love my warlock, but I’ve also started liking my lowbie orc shaman. I don’t think I’ll be switching to my alliance druid any time soon. I’ve just played her too much and I want to stay horde from now on.
10. What’s been your favorite aspect of Cataclysm so far?
That my old world is completely rebuild. It’s familiar yet also unfamiliar. The best thing however is goblins. I’m really loving her emotes and her looks.
