    Can't think of A words.

    Love: Rogue PvP.

    Loathe: DKs and Warlocks.

    As a side note I'm interested in leveling a priest in Cata or a Warrior. Priest for casting dps/healing and Warrior for melee dps/tanking, simply because I'd like to do every role but with fewer characters.

    Angry: Why did I agree to go to Ulduar Hard modes? I don't like hard modes. Turns out all I really need is heroic iron council and heroic Yogg and I get something. But my interest in that is... nonexistent.

    What I would really like to do is get in on a Lich King kill, but non heroic. I just want to "complete" the instance.

    Abhorrence: still no Lich King kill. The guild cleared up to Sindragosa last night, though (my Internet was down). Hopefully people show up on Thursday and we kick his ass.

    Meh, that aspect of the game isn't for me. I mean the hardcore raiding part. I was told to flask up for a fight. Wahoo, now that I have this flask I have 180 more AP :|

    They made me pay for it. :(

    I normally am not in favor of running through something again and it being the exact same thing cept the bosses hit harder, have to kill more stuff, and more damage is being thrown around for no reason other than to be heroic (ICC/ToC).

    However, Ulduar did a great job of changing the way the fights are (excluding Ignus and Hodir) in that how you approach the fight determines how the actual difficulty will be. Thats why I actually enjoy Ulduar's hard modes opposed to the other raids.

    ?? : I'm feeling the WoW itch again, after two months :/

    Mainly, i'd like to get the drakes from Ulduar and ICC, but my guild went horde, and alliance side is pretty much dead on my server.

    I wish Blizz opened free transfers to a decent pop server so i could leave that hellhole with my alts without having to fork over who knows how many euros.

    As far as I have done with getting my Skyguard rep up on my guys, yes. You have to kite him around until you see the smoke.

    Easy as pie to solo on a hunter or pally, but a HUGE pain as a mage or something along those lines. Once the shield goes down, he hits like a truck.

    Adoration: My Discipline/Shadow Priest is almost all growed up at 80, and a big part of me doesn't want to leave the levelling through dungeons in Northrend experience. Here's the story:

    My Priest started out Alliance-side as a Dwarf. When I had stopped playing Alliance and gone Horde, I'd been toying with faction changing him, along with my Death Knight. I decided to take a break from my Priest to focus on my Troll Shaman (who was already there), and my Death Knight (now a Tauren). When those two had reached a pretty good level of gear, I went back and looked at my characters and thought "Nah, I'll roll a Rogue, always wanted one of those". Few weeks later, level 80 Rogue in T9 equipment for the most part.

    So I finally faction-change my Priest over to Horde at level 76, making it an Undead, and give Disc a shot. It's a rough ride for the first one or two normal Violet Holds, but it evens out. Then, because the battle group (Vindication EU) is so small, a mere 8 realms occupying it, you tend to bump into the same people again and again in the dungeon finder, and I feel the love because people remember my little Priest healing them from another random. Yesterday I zoned in on a Gundrak normal with the first two bosses down, only to be greeted by a Warlock saying "Yay! It's the P.I. Priest <3". We'd done Violet Hold together a couple of days ago.

    Stuff like that just makes my day, I guess.

    Funny cause it's true. Had a DK who decided I wasn't moving fast enough and started tanking things. His every death was a precious moment I will treasure forever. 5 deaths later he let me tank again, 3 deaths later I broke down and reminded him to turn off Frost presence.

    ? my brother and I tried it as a mage and warlock and my felguard got a case of the stupids and just stood there when terrok did his bubble and whaled on him

    We can kite him to the smoke but they don't drop the firebomb right then
    WE almost had him but then he did do another bubble at 3 health! and he really did hit like a truck right then

    Apathy: Earlier this year, the guild I was in never ran ICC at times that worked for me (say 9-10 Eastern start). Who's gonna bring me into ANY ICC raid now, when I've never even seen Marrowgar die? At this point, it's probably better to just let my druid and death knight wait for Cata.

    Apathy: I haven't really *played* WoW in about 2 weeks. There are a couple of things I do still want to try and get done, like getting my druid the damn raven mount that never drops. And finishing getting my DK to Ambassador (basically just to have all the main factions at Exalted really.) But... meh.

    I also need to unload some of my mat type stuff, specifically the tons of epic gems I've gotten from having two transmutation masters for a long damn time. And I've even kind of stopped doing transmutes too (one of the few things I would still log on every day to do.)

    It's usually not even worth it to cancel my subscription either, because I do it in 6 month blocks, I don't remember offhand when this chunk expires, but in all likelyhood, by the time it does, 3.9 will be out if not Cataclysm itself. So I just keep it rolling.

    Argleblargle: Feeling a MMO itch, not sure if i can wait till Cata. I've only been gone 2-3 months :/

    Absolution: Reminding myself that my choices boil down to
    a) level an alt or two from 60-70, so they can be transmute mules come cata. Won't do 70-78 for the 4th time because I think they will lower the exp curve.
    b) Get into pvp, which I haven't liked since tarren mill/southshore days

    Kinda helps. Don't care about the high end content after getting Kingslayer 10.

    Abhorrence: Through armory I found out that I have ran regular Forge of Souls 38 times and I've only seen the cape drop once for my warrior. The groups I've been in range from overgeared toons helping out an alt buddy to holy pallies wearing nothing but ret gear.

    It's been a long damn journey so far. I hope it ends soon.

    Edit: I finally got the drop the 2nd run of the night.

    Adore: I don't have to run that damn place every again.

    Ambivalence: I'm trying to play the auction house, which is another journey in itself. Supposedly, I have all the necessary professions across my toons to bring in the big bucks, but I'm lazy.
