Hey there! I’ve stepped foot onto this strange planet of Draenor and made friends with some local orcs by saving their butts. Typical right? We hopped on a boat after the Iron Horde chased us down the docks, good thing I have blink cause their legs are longer and stronger than mine and no one would even offer to carry me, buncha jerks. So anyway, we get to this homeland of these Frostwolf orcs that I helped rescue and it’s cold. Snow freakin everywhere. Good thing I’m a frost mage, so I’m used to this shit. Anyway, I get my garrison set up by talkin to Gazlowe, the genius that he is and freakin Khadgar goes and insults him. I was about ready to show him what a mage can really do before remembering that I’m trying to get in good with the Kirin Tor so I quelled that, but geez, wait until I’m off doing something to make some gold before insulting him or somethin. So anyway, I go and ask around to see what I can do to get myself some gold, cause it’s important ya know? So I meet this guy named Durotan, and Go’el, who’s been going as Thrall again for some reason, confuse the hell outta me buddy, anyway, Go’el is staring at him creeping me out. He needs to just come clean and say ‘hey, I’m your kid from the future’ or somethin already. So we go and beat up some ogres and then stuff is happening at his home so I gotta go and save their butts.
A goblin’s work is never done is it? Anyway, I’m headin to bed now, so I’ll let ya know what happens tomorrow if it’s important or somethin.
I really miss Kezan…
She stared at the choices in front of her, her mind switching back and forth. Which side to choose? There were pros and cons to either side, each had their values and their downfalls. She looked over at the people whom she had trained with and helped along the way. Ji was strong and quick thinking, springing into action and Mazzlu admired that, she hoped one day to be as sure of mind as he was. She then turned to Aysa, who was so calm and so respectful, thinking of every possible outcome before always knowing the right course of action. Mazzlu admired that too and then turned back to the Spirit of Master Shang Xi and opened her mouth, yet no words escaped.
“You must make a choice,” he said to her. “You do not seem the type to stay on the isle forever.”
“I understand,” she said with a bow. “I seem to be having difficulty in making my mind up on which path I should take.”
“Look into your heart,” he said. “It will show you the true way.”
She looked at her friends again and then sighed. “I will follow Aysa to the Alliance,” she said finally, trying to convince herself as well as Master Shang Xi.
After a balloon ride that seemed like forever, they landed outside the gates of a huge walled city. “I wonder where the emperor lives,” Aysa asked as she walked along the stone streets of the city.
“There is no emperor here,” a guard said in passing. “You’ll want to see King Varian Wrynn. He lives in the castle up there.” He pointed to the large structure that overlooked the rest of the city.
“Thank you,” Mazzlu said with a bow as she hurried Aysa and Jojo through the streets to the large castle.
Mazzlu stood outside of her garrison on the alien world of Draenor. She had proven herself in combat and was given the opportunity to command the forces of her new allies against the current threat to her home world of Azeroth. She looked around and noticed that a few of the adventurers who had pledged themselves to her cause were going off on some missions she had put up for them and she waved as they went past her. She was starting to miss her friends that were left behind on Azeroth, but she hoped that one day she would see them again. She looked at the letter that she held from a fellow hero of the Alliance that she had befriended on this strange world, laughing that they were both stuck here, trying to take down the Iron Horde so that they could figure out how to return to their home once again. She enjoyed the time she spent with the ragtag group, taking down some of the most fearsome creatures that the ogre stronghold of Highmaul had to offer. She looked up from the letter, contemplating the invitation she had received.
Well, I have had a busy few weeks (months?) so yeah, got some news.
First, got into the Heroes of the Storm Alpha. It’s great, so much fun, I love playing as Illidan.
Second, my wife Siccah (whom I love so much) started playing WoW. She’s having fun so far and I’m letting her control when she wants to play and for how long. I’m not going to pressure her and scare her away again. It’s great sharing something with her.
Third, I got into the Warlords of Draenor Alpha in the FIRST WAVE! Holy shit! I was shocked, thought it was a joke at first but nope, it’s legit! Even though it’s buggy, hurts my lore loving brain (His name is GO’EL!) and crashes a lot, I love it and I can’t wait for it’s release.
Forth, I’M RAIDING AGAIN!!! I have joined up with Team We So Fancy in Forged in Flames on Kul’Tiras US. I’m so happy I get to raid with my family and I can’t wait until Friday night when we go into Siege of Orgrimmar and kick some ass! It’ll be flex, but hey, it’s FREAKIN RAIDING! I think we are going to go Normal though, not just stay in flex. It would be wonderful to get a wolf mount like I have in the Alpha to ride around Draenor with.
Nothing else to report right now. Gotta make sure I’m ready to raid on Friday!
Man, I really need to write here more often…Let’s see…some guild drama, not sure what went down, but I now belong to Forged from Flames on Kul’Tiras. Core group of friends are still there, we pulled through, we will fight on. It’s great going online after work and seeing them all there ready to help me relax. Been playing a shit ton of Diablo. GREAT GAME! It’s different from WoW so much, but awesome at the same time.
Been doing a ton of pet battling too. Now that I have my legendary on my main there just isn’t much to do on her anymore. Why fight for gear endlessly when you know you aren’t going to progress any further? I have a decent amount of gear that I am able to do pretty much what I want solo so why bother? Don’t feel like getting anymore transmog sets for her either so yeah, sorry, she’s been kind of on the shelf lately.
In addition to Mazzlu being 90, I have Amoredre (Night Elf Druid), Nokymo (Pandaren Hunter), Deleroth (Sin’dorei Warlock), Driq (Goblin Mage), Maggra (Orc Shaman), Nomiko (Pandaren Priest), Annaela (Sin’dorei Death Knight) and Desolethah (Sin’dorei Rogue/Demon Hunter) all at 90. Yes, that is a lot of toons to 90, but I have nothing else to do! Two of them are Alliance, so meh. I kinda want a troll druid as well. Gotta find the right server for her. I’m thinking Thrall.
Anyway, just wanted to post something, if only to let you know that I’m still alive out there…somewhere.
I recorded a clip for the Twisted Nation commercial that is on TwizzCast every week and a friend of mine wanted to hear it so I’m uploading it here. The commercial is out so I figure I can post it and share it now. I was so excited hearing it 😀
Lately I’ve been getting into Roleplaying on Twitter. It’s a hell of a lot of fun and I’m thinking of making another account for my main roleplay toon Deleroth. Right now I’m having a blast talking to Warchief Vol’jin, and a ton of other people. If you aren’t following me yet, why not? I can be found at @lorewalkermazlu
Also, if you aren’t aware, I’ve started a podcast! We have 7 episodes already done and up on iTunes and Stitcher! I’m so thrilled and still shocked that I’m actually doing a podcast. It’s about lore and roleplay because the community was severely lacking and people are loving it! I even had a special guest on episode 7 and a fellow Troll roleplayer wants to be on it too! We’ll have her on after Blizzcon, I promise! It’s so exciting doing something like this. I really want to get more about Mazzlu’s backstory up on here, and I really want to write the story of her and her buddy Niqol too.
Write more later!
…and put some things into perspective. Someone messaged me and wondered why the hell I was posting that I’m walking with some app. I’ll tell you. I’m tired of being the fat girl. I’m sick of it. I want to do so many things that others take for granted that I CANNOT DO! I’ll make a nice little list for you.
- Go out to a restaurant and sit in a booth
- Go onto an airplane and put the armrests down
- Go to a movie and not worry about people sitting next to you (cause you need empty seats on either side so you aren’t squished through the whole movie)
- Wear a bathing suit that was styled for this century (swim dresses are TERRIBLE)
- Go to an amusement park and fit on a ride
- Go to walmart and buy a shirt (and have it fit)
- Get a free tshirt from someone and wear it instead of using it for a dust rag
- Not having to pay an extra five dollars for a tshirt you really love online
- Not being stared at when at a restaurant/ordering food/grocery shopping
- Not being laughed at when you bend over to pick something up (this really happened at work today)
- Looking down to see if my shoes actually are tied
- Sitting down without worrying that you are going to break the chair
I’m sure that there are a ton of other things, but I just can’t think of anymore right now. I don’t want to be the way I am right now anymore. I don’t want to be the friend that people introduce as “This is Noko, she’s really nice.” or “This is Noko, she’s so funny!” I just want to be Noko. Is that too much to ask?
Video now!!! 😀
Well, after months of farming Blackwing Lair, Mazzlu’s transmog is completely done. Of course, this is just one of her looks and I’m working on another one or two right now, but this one I’ve worn for a while now.
I’ve been thinking lately of what direction I want this WoW blog to go into. I love soloing things, I love transmog, I love pet battling…but so many blog about that.
What’s wrong with one more crazy blog though?
I think I like doing so many things alone because I have Social Anxiety Disorder, but it’s not a severe case. I work a customer service job where I have to listen to people complain about things all day long and when I get home to WoW I don’t want to hear it. I honestly don’t. That’s why I wait until the weekends to run LFR. I just can’t stand putting up with people longer than I have to. But soloing things, that’s awesome. I don’t have to listen to people yelling at me for screwing up. I don’t have to ignore my girlfriend to run something. I like being there for her, she’s my world.
I think I’m going to try to get some good pictures of my transmogs that I have on my toons right now. I’m very proud of the set I have on my hunter right now and my warlock looks good too. I need to figure something out for my mage and my rogue yet, but my rogue isn’t level 90 yet.
I’ll type more later, I wanna play! See ya on the Twitter!
