Girls gone WoW 82: Moonk, the Tauren Monk

Announcement from GGW

Rebuttal to feedback regarding Therazane and our boobies segment

Hey Guys, Just before we start show 76, I just want to talk about something that’s happened this week.

We have received some feedback from a listener regarding our segment “Best and Worst Boobies in WoW”, and in particular show 72.
During this show, Therazane was chosen as having the worst boobs, with our guest asking why the earth mother figure had to be portrayed with saggy boobies, couldn’t she be portrayed with more pert boobies like Alexstraza for example. This started a light hearted discussion about whether Therazane just needed a better tailor or corsetiere.

The feedback we received about this says that we have upset people by heaping hate and shame upon the Earthmother and her boobies, and accuses us of body shaming and supporting and promoting a modern male perspective of what beautiful is as regards the female form.

After receiving this, we really felt it was worth spending time discussing this offline with each other and then sharing with you our feelings on this.

Such a topic is naturally something that is close to all of us, being women and Roblin, being a chap who appreciates the female form. But speaking for the ladies of @ggwshow, we have personal perspectives on boobies, being owners of them, and also being women of different shapes, sizes and opinions. Between us, we’ve got all sorts of boobies and bodies, big, small, pert, bouncy and saggy. And they are all perfect in their own way. Not everyone likes every type but that’s fine, as long as no-one is rude or unkind.

Therazane and her daughter, Princess Theradas are obviously modeled off historical depictions of the Mother Goddess, for example the Venus of Willendorf. Such pieces often depict larger female forms with saggy boobies and are beautiful. Overall, we think that Blizzard actually have done a good job in their tribute to these pieces, with one error. The real problem is how the faces have been modelled and in fact we think it’s the faces that cause people to dislike the models. Both WoW models have distorted and rough faces, which act as a harsh contrast to the rest of their forms so as to render the models quite unsympathetic and a little disturbing. Theradras actually has quite pert boobies if you go back and loot at the model.

We have never sort to imply or heap any shame on saggy boobies, or anything or anyone that does not have the form of characters like Alexstraza. Beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder and people should be free to live their lives free of harassment, upset, bullying or intimidation because of their physical form. For one member of the show this is a particularly sensitive topic as they are recovering from an eating disorder that has been sustained in part over the years due to bullying regarding their physicality. The anonymity of online gaming can be a huge release from these day to day pressures as no-one can see you, so can’t comment on what you look like: in that regard it can be a safe space.

Our segment where we ask our guests about boobies in game is meant to be a light hearted way to end our interview with them. It’s all about personal preference and it is perfectly acceptable for people to not like these models in game. It may mean they don’t like them IRL but that is their choice. It might also mean they just prefer pertness in game. Either way, it is perfectly legitimate for them to chose what they like or don’t like. If our question ever turned into a discussion that suggested that RL saggy boobs are unnatural, or disgusting, or wrong, then we would jump on that but it’s never happened. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but respect that others opinions may vary is equally as important.

If anyone has any further feedback then please let us know at sil@girlsgonewow.net. Thanks for writing to us.

Dungeon Finder Bingo Time!

I had heard of these before and I actually find them hilarious:

I think I will use one of these bingo-cards next time I have to run a dungeon.

Do you guys know if there are any more wow-related bingo-cards out there? Not just for dungeons or pugs, anything wow-related! Show me some links 😀

One of my friends at work goes to bingo-halls. It seems to be very popular in the UK. I really have to try it out once, but since I’m more of an online girl I tried to find something to do online. (I already love playing Monopoly scratch cards online) and I found Foxy Bingo. Going to give them a try 😀

Our new guild!

<ASHES OF MAN>

 

 

The exact origins of this warband are the subject of much debate among the members of the Horde, simply because no real time scale was ever given of theirs deeds. However the earliest they appear in any kind of written record is just after the opening of the Dark Portal.

 

In the beginning they were merely a pack of orcs still under the influence of the taint. However there were some that were possessed a little deeper by another force. Hatred. History tells us of the grusome and bloody wars that were fought, but mixed in with the accepted historical records lies the history of the Ashes of Man…

 

During the First War there existed a powerful orc captain know as Thorgax Redgore, an orc with a loathing so intense it is perhaps comparable to that of Garrosh Hellscream. Thorgax would butched humans without end and refused mercy to ANY. Those orcs who followed him thought Thorgax a hero and were always prepared to lay down their lives for him. It was after a sucessful raid on a human settlement that Thorgax’s genocidal hatred took on a new level.

 

With the scent of death surrounding him and the euphoria of victory intoxicating him Thorgax let out a frightening battle shout. He took hold of a nearby human corpse and flung it upon the blazing fire before him. As the smell of searing flesh filled his nostrils the captain breathed deeps the desecration of his enemies and addressed his bretheren orcs:

“These pathetic worms are a disgrace! Even their lifeless corpses mock us. Join me my brothers, eradicate the human vermin!!”

 

Howling in frenzied agreement the band of orcs joined with their captain. Throwing the corpses upon the crackling fire and cursing the human race to extinction. From the base of the fire Thorgax scooped a handful of ash and coated his face with it, once again howling to his orc brothers.

“My brothers cover yourselves with their ashes. Ensure all those that see us know, that we will crush them beneath us!! And wipe their very memory from this planet!!!”

 

Thus began the Ashes of Man. They were the most brutal and vicious of the orcs. Massacring and burning all humans in their path, then charging to the next battle smeared in the ashes of their defiled enemies.

 

After the taint was cleansed stories of Ashes Of Man quietened down but were never lost. As time had passed they had become somewhat secretive and more selective of who was admitted. Years passed and as the Horde became more diverse so did the Ashes of Man. The idea appealed to some of the Trolls and their barbaric beliefs about life. The Forsaken agreed whole undeadheatedly with the ideal of ending the humans existence. Even the gentle Tauren have those among them whose dislike for humans is intense enough to warrant them to seek out membership. Any Blood Elves that join usually do so to be around when the magic essance is seared from the humans flesh and released back into the grand flow of magic. No-one is truely certain why Goblins, who make no profit from these endeavours, join yet they can be counted among their ranks regardless.

 

Within the present day Horde Ashes of Man has once again started to rise up into the public eye. There are even rumours that Warchief Hellscream himself is a member, but this obviously cannot be proved. Although the burning of humans doesn’t occur frequently anymore, primarily because it can’t, there is still a tradition upheld by the guild members. Once a year the members gather atop the cliffs of Durotar under dead of night. Once there they slay a harpie each and together they symbollically burn these human-looking creatures to honour the heritage they have inherited. On this night (I rolled a D3 die here to represent each of your birthdays and it came up as EJ. So the night would be 9 days after EJ’s birthday) the guild members sit around the charring fires telling tales of their victories over the Alliance, in particular any battles fought with the human race. All the while coating their faces with the remaining ashes. Such is the tradition of Ashes of Man…

 

Ranks 

 

The Ashmask- The leader and most prominent member.

 

Ashling- The rank given to those whom are new to the ranks (main toons)

 

White Ash- The rank given to those who attain entry through friends (Alt toons)

 

Ashen Beast- The rank given to those who have proven themselves to the guild.

 

Ashen-Fear- Attained through futher deeds and loyalty to the guild.

 

Ashen-Terror- One of the most senior ranks that garters much respect from the other members. Their loyalty is unquestioned and their feats countless.

 

Ashen Monstrosity- Second only to the Ashmask. Those whom attain this rank have proven themselves as the best of the best.

 

Upon joining Ashes of Man you are appointed as an Ashling and presented with a Solid Stone (all but White Ash). This is no ordinary stone, it is a piece of the original alter that first human burning fire was built upon. The stone is still charred with the memory of that fateful night. It is a symbol of your membership, even more so than the offical tabard. All ranks (except White Ash) must carry their stone and to lose, sell or otherwise dispose of it is the GREATEST insult one can give to the guild. No harm or ill will should befall this stone for it should be carried with ever swelling pride as your proof that you are part of the guild.

 

 

Funny WoW story no. 7

My sides hurt moment involves my toon Siori, a Mage, and the Lunar Festival…though it was a few years ago.  As a Rogue, I had it made for things like this (Vanish!), but said Mage needed Thunder Bluff as well so we agreed to go together.  The plan was to run in, grab the Elder and then jump off the Bluff and we’d Feather Fall.  Everything went perfect.  We got the Elder, Feather Fall was cast and we jumped.

Well, I jumped first.  He plummeted past me.  As I was standing over his corpse at the bottom of the Bluff I asked what happened.

“I don’t know. I cast the spell on both of us.”

“Glitch?” was my only explanation at this point. After a moment, the next comment from him was “aw @%$.”

Now this is the moment I know something isn’t right. All my sense are saying he forgot to cast it, and I point blank ask if he forgot.

“Nope. I cast it twice…on you.”
Cheers,
JD Kenada

Funny WoW Story No. 6

When reading about the competition, the first story that sprang to me was actually very recent. Our guild was working on Deathwing one evening using the Ysera->Noz->Alex->Kale strategy. As we hopped from Alex’s pillar to Kale’s, Deathwing’s head plopped down when we crossed the interim pillar. I noticed the occurrence but figured that it had always appeared, dormant, and I hadn’t noticed it before. Apparently not. As we lay into the final limb tentacle, a few of us were hit with shrapnel as the fragments had spawned over by the head. Suddenly two terrors spawned on our pillar and began to wreak havoc, causing us all to run around in a panic for a few seconds before we were one- and two-shot. I call shenanigans!
I managed to snap a screenshot before dying:

Funny WoW Story No. 5

I saw your posting on WoW_Ladies, and I wanted to share the funniest thing that happened to me in WoW.
—————————————————————-
It’s around the beginning of Wrath of the Lich King, and 25 man Malygos is the big Kahuna we’re trying to down.  At the time, my hunter was struggling a bit with her DPS; I was marksmanship, and somehow I wasn’t keeping up with the other hunter.  This was also the same time Blizzard did a stealth buffed Explosive Shot.  Once word got out, I decided to try survival.
I practiced on the dummy a few hours before.  Raid time rolls around, and we get into Eye of Eternity.  Buffing up, eating up, flasking up, and we’re ready to go.  My GM and main tank, Jailer, pulls Malygos.  Jailer turns him around and the DPS and healers are at his sides and butt.  And we are going to TOWN on him.  Everyone was getting excited at how fast he was going down.  I was so excited I was out DPSing everyone with my new spec!
And then LOCK ‘N LOAD!  I’m thinking, “Yes!  Here comes big damage from me!” Fire off an Explosive Shot!  Cast Steady Shot.  Another Explosive shot! Steady shot again.  Third Explosive Shot!  First tick…second tick…
“You are dead.”
All of a sudden on Ventrilo, my other GM, Rhiannon, erupted; “WHO FUCKING PULLED AGGRO?!  WHAT THE FUCK?!!”
Aggro was pulled, and at the same time Malygos turned around, he did his Arcane Breath attack.  And wiped the 24 of the 25 people in one shot.  Eventually Malygos turned back around to pummel Jailer.  There’s all this commotion on Ventrilo and looking at my combat log, it looked like one of my Explosive Shots hit hard enough to pull aggro off of the tank.
I whisper Jailer.  “I think that was me.  I think I pulled aggro off of you.  My bad :(“
His response.  “That was you?” (brief pause, probably an officer confirming with him it was me)
“Please, don’t do that again…BUT THAT WAS AWESOME!”

There you go, hope you enjoyed 🙂
