  2. Earlier
  3. Just want to say hi to everyone! Sending my love to my SoH family <3

  4. That's awesome! I am ashamed to admit I have not read Ender's Game; at this point I'm just afraid of hating the movie, hah. Sorry for the delayed reply: was moving and not checking the forums. Hope we'll see you in guild soon =D
  5. Just wanted to pop in and say hai. No random questions, just hai.
  6. My twins are named Perrin and Ender. I bet you can identify both of the sources of these names ;).
  7. What logistical concerns do you imagine you'd encounter trying to extract a cephalopod from a pokeball to do battle on dry land? Or is this more about just flexing on unsuspecting scuba divers? idk if it's just cause I know you or what, but this is the comic that came to mind while reading this:
  8. Hey mordigrim sounds good to me, I'll bring the intellect and let you guys do the heavy lifting haha. "Pick three fictional characters from different universes. You get to look like one, have the personality of a different one, and live in the universe of the remaining one. What are your choices and why?" I like this question. Looks, Geralt of Rivia, preferably the netflix version because basically i just wish i was henry cavil lol. Personality, Tony Stark. Universe Harry potter because i've been waiting for a letter from hogwarts since i was 12. I'm 32 now but.... one day.. "Guy Fieri is going to take you on an all-expenses paid three-month tour of the best Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives in America that all serve whatever your favorite type of cuisine is. There's two catches though. First, you have to dress like Guy. Second, you have to order the same dish at every restaurant you go to. You get to eat it however each individual restaurant prepares it so it will vary a little but in general you basically get to eat one food item for three months. What dish do you order and why? Also, how amazing do you feel wearing flame-covered bowling shirts every day?" wearing flame covered bowling shirts would be worth traveling for three months for free so I'm down. I'd of course make sure i changed my beard to a goatee to fit in. As far as the dish, I'd have to say tacos. no two tacos are the same haha. "Our world is magically transformed and suddenly all of our existing animals follow the basic rules of Pokemon. What animal or animals do you hope to catch to be on your team?" Otters. Imagine a little otter that follows you around saying "otter" lol. Sounds amazing to me. that and maybe a few grizzly bears, a jaguar, architeuthis, and an owl. Thanks for the reply. Im looking forward to meeting all of you.
  9. Hey there, Brent! I'm Mordigrim. Or Mordi. Or Brad. Whatever you prefer, I'm cool with it. If you can work the mechanics, you can join the raids. Of course elite DPS would be a plus but personally I'm much more interested in bringing players with the right attitude. We're not pushing Mythics yet so there's room for everyone (even the undergeared) in our raid group. We're just hitting the point now where Normal Ny'alotha doesn't have many upgrades for the group and we're working through the easy Heroics so you'll be fine at your gear level. Plus we don't have a Mage and I need that Arcane Intellect buff! Ok, on to the getting-to-know-you part! Pick three fictional characters from different universes. You get to look like one, have the personality of a different one, and live in the universe of the remaining one. What are your choices and why?

  10. Whats up, Im brent. I just came back to wow and I'm here to chew bubble gum and destroy bosses, but I'm all out of bubble gum. I've been playing wow off and on since burning crusade and ive spent most of that time playing with Jim (gesari) and mike (barius). They speak highly of your community so I'd like to be a part of it. I've played wow hardcore pushing for server firsts and world rankings, I've played it casual as well, and I probably prefer somewhere in between. I'm an easy going person, i can get along with anyone and i treat people the way i'd like to be treated. except mike. I work in the visual effects and gaming industry mostly as a character artist. my hobbies include gaming, being a nerd, gaming, and sometimes i play around on my guitar. I'm apping as a mage. It's a new class for me if im being completely honest, but im the type of player that will min/max until my damage is in the 99th percentile on warcraft logs, jim and mike can attest to me being a dps meter nerd. Im currently ilvl 430 so i have a lot of work to do getting myself geared for the current raid tier, I don't expect to be carried or have a raid spot right away. Anyways I'm not sure what else to put here, but if you guys have any questions for me let me know. I look forward to playing with you guys if you'll have me
  11. I will not be pretending to know how to do anything, thank you very much.
  12. I don't have pics on my work computer. Will spam discord later when we get him in there and we can all share cat pics! Also please be ready for the Friday Night SMACKDOWN at 9pm EDT tonight, Ace, if you wanna hang out with some of us in voice chat! We're going to pretend like we know how to PvP to try and farm up some essences.
  13. ALSO we're going to get you set to recruit today, so you'll be able to see more of the forum stuff. Please add me on discord (Estarriol#3246) and I'll send you more info.
  14. I add tanked as a warrior and that was absolutely the highlight of that tier for me. It was my first real step into heroics and it was terrifying, stressful, and totally thrilling. Being on the very edge of disaster and having to hold it for so long really got the blood pumping. Also I agree with Mordi! Frankly, I don't know why there aren't cat pics in here already. The one in this picture is Jiji. Also known as The Shriek, The Screaming Void, and Muffin. My other cat is Thrymr. He's also known as cuddle bear or King Louie.
  15. Don't fight it though. Post pics.
  16. Oh man, my brother has a 28lb Maine Coon who looks like a miniature white lion. It's uncanny. I'm fighting hard to not start posting pics of several cats in this thread right now. SWARLEY! How I Met Your Mother reference? I'm often disappointed when I see an Asian place with an Americanized name. I have some really fond memories of ICC Heroic. Lich King in general was such a great fight. We got stuck on 25H Sindy, but I tanked as a Blood DK for our 10H group; what a great zone in general. I was dpsing as Frost for the haste buff for the raid in our 25 man group; felt pretty awful most of the time being at the bottom of the parse, but I'll never forget my Army of the Dead ghouls secured us the kill for normal mode from taunting them adds. I quit early on in Dragon Soul, but I rather enjoyed Firelands on my Warlock. Karazhan had a few bosses that were great for watching easy failures; for my guild it was always Netherspite and once I got over being annoyed about it, the whole thing was pretty hilarious. I think my favorite encounter I've done was in EQ2; the instanced Mayong encounter. It was a relatively straightforward encounter, but the guild I was with had no business being there at the time. Our gear was trash and it was our second night in there and we got the kill just by playing the whole thing super clean. I'd raided in a few casual guilds before, but that was the first time a raid group I'd played in ever felt like a cohesive unit. It's still my favorite part about progression. So there was a definite right answer to this question, and it was The Force, so props. I am, however, a big fan of both Mistborn and Wheel of Time (I've got part of the inscription from Mat's spear tattooed on my right forearm =O). I think the magic system from the Malazan series was probably the most interesting to me, but I don't run into too many people who've read that one. Any other favorite books/series in general?
  17. Gesari, heya. Always good to know cat people. I had 2 cats when I met my wife, and she had 2 as well. I married into cats. We currently are down to two, but throughout our marriage we've had Tsuba (half house, half bobcat...we think. he was 26lbs and not fat when he passed... had a bob tail and the.... chops, that bobcats have.) Tabi, Cricket, Bucket, and Andrew. I totally get where you're coming from with unrelated nicknames. (see: bucket. His real name is Swarley). The kind of independence, solitude, time to listen to audiobooks and generally be alone. Seeing the country. It's honestly a very good line of work for people who can handle the stress/being alone/being away from family. I've driven in all 48 contiguous states and 2 or 3 provinces in Canada. Yeah, I'm hoping that they keep their native... love for everyone. One of my boys is such a good person. Like -- way better than my wife or myself. His brother is great too, just lacks that incredible empathy. He's more like me. Already a little sarcastic and exploring boundaries. I like the names a lot of Asian food places use. Number One Taste is certainly up there, heh. Hard to say. Overcoming challenges obviously. Teamwork/community ranks high. Favorite raid encounter.... hmm. How about 3 great ones. Lich King heroic 25(main tank), Deathwing Spine(I was add tank as a protadin), Shade of Aran cus it was the first one I saw people failing on for no obvious reason. Best magic system is... probably either from the mistborn universe... Allomancy/Feruchemy/Hemallurgy... or maybe the power from the Wheel of Time series. (I would also say The Force in Star Wars is top tier.)
  18. Just wanted to pop in and say hi. No random questions from me because my three heathens have fried my brain. So hai!
  19. Hi there, Aspir/Aaron/Ace! I'm Jim, and I also play a Paladin. I'd say it's cause I'm really into the Glory of the Light, but really I just like the special effects. No children here, but I am in a similar issue with my cat. His name is Jean Ralphio, and he's a half-bengal, half-raccoon. His unrelated nickname is Mankle, and I chant this name at him often for any apparent reason I deem appropriate. I know you said you had a cat, too, so I'm hoping you understand where I'm coming from with this. So I've never driven anything larger than a big U-haul, but I spent a decade working in car dealerships and such after high school. I've spent a lot of time driving around for random purposes, and I gotta say it's still something I miss. I love having time to myself to think and let my thoughts play out, and driving has always afforded that for me. Plus, I've seen some really pretty places and ate some awesome food I never would have otherwise. What was your favorite thing about the job? My brother and I are only a year and a half apart, so we had a very similar experience growing up. Especially when we were younger, everyone thought we were twins, and we always hung out with the other's friends. I now have a penchant for thinking of all of my favorite people as extensions of my family, and I sometimes wonder how much that relationship shaped that perception. Asian food is by far my favorite theater (I had "type" in here originally, but it's really way too diverse for that) of food. The best chinese place around here is called Number One Taste, and it truly does live up to its name. Mordi this has no real bearing on what else is going on, but the first video games I played as a child were the original Super Mario Brothers and Legend of Zelda. My mother was so bored staying at home she bought them and would play them for hours cause it kept us all entertained hahaha. As an aside, Ace: What's your favorite part of collaborative gaming? Favorite raid encounter all time? What, in your opinion, is the coolest superpower/magic system/etc.? (there are probably no wrong answers)
  20. That's so great, I love that! My kiddo is an only child and always will be, sometimes I'm sad for him that he doesn't have a sibling. I have four sisters and an adopted brother, my wife has two sisters and a brother, so we both thought we'd have a big family ourselves but it just wasn't in the cards for us. Oh how I wish I could get my son to eat real Asian food! The closest to Asian he'll even touch is HuHot, anywhere else we get Asian from the only thing he eats is steamed rice with gallons of soy sauce on it I'm obsessed with Asian food, I could rotate between Thai, Chinese, and Japanese indefinitely and probably never get sick of it. You should wear that description like a title, introduce yourself as "Ace the Bearded and Delightful" from now on.
  21. Read, understood, pledge to upkeep
  22. I think I formatted the whole thing as a quote.. ah well. I don't know right off hand any questions to fire back with yet. Might think of some while I kill N'zoth again this evening, heh. -Ace
  23. Hello there! I'm Mordi, Mordigrim, or Brad. Your pick! I talk about my kiddo all the time too. I think that's par for the course. What's your favorite thing about having twins? Are they playing any games yet? I think at 4 my kiddo and I were playing a Pokemon campaign together (I'd read to him, he'd pick our attacks and name all of our "mons") and playing classic games (NES, Atari, etc. emulators). What's your favorite music to listen to with your kids? What's your favorite music to listen to when your kids aren't around? What's your favorite take-out or delivery food? What's your favorite homemade meal (and who in your life makes it best)? If the person who knows you best had to describe you to someone who had never met you in one sentence, what would they say? Feel free to hit me back with any questions you have! Happy to have you here, welcome to the forums!
  24. Hey folks. I'm an old guildmate of Sheytan/Dev's from... forever ago back in <Church of RNG>. My main's name is Aspir, a protadin. Just got aotc after about a month back into WoW. Considering other places for continued Raiding/Shadowlands Shenanigans. Mostly interested in heroic with maybe mythic raiding, m+, and general activity. I'm super into the idea of an active and fun community. As an aside, I also have played Eve for years. I was CEO of No Vacancies (a wh corp) for about 5 years. Just recently passed that torch cus I saw myself becoming less active within Eve. If your eve folks know much/any of my corp, y'all will already possibly know that I'm in full agreement with your Code of Conduct. Friendly banter is fun, but when someone's had enough, move on and keep having fun instead of irritating your friends. About me as a human... I'm Aaron (often called Ace), getting older as far as being a gamer goes. I've got 4 year-old twins that I talk about too much. I'm a recovering trucker and newbie programmer. I'm not currently driving a truck, but that might be in the cards again, who knows. I also have a couple cats. Currently I play WoW, World of Warships, Avorion, Terraria, other random Steam games, and still a small bit of Eve Online (anyone need an avatar?) Anything else people are interested in, give me a shout. -Ace -
  25. I would have to say Death Knight, since they can evolve into Deathlords; and some rare ones even evolve into Lich Kings. I think their weakness to Fairy/Undead is pretty bullshit though. Sylvanas can be pretty annoying to fight.
