World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor (Stables) #1
[All images are © Blizzard Entertainment & WoW-Petopia.com]
Welp, time to go through and see who’s accompanying Vj through the portal.
If you’re not a WoW fan, scroll past this post. This is basically me shamelessly summarising my current stables, along with which pets will be returning to the wilderness to make room for the new members of the family <3
Tamed as Gezzarak The Huntress just prior to the launch of WotLK, and has stayed ever since. I still remember the PAIN of taming this royal purple bitch. That Warp/Poison Spit/Charge combo attack was murder on my gear. She killed me so many times in those two hours prior to our raid starting that weekend. I gave it three last shots just as the raid was filling. On the third attempt, she didn’t charge me, nor did she break the tame. I had her. She was mine, complete with that sick orange lightning summon animation she had (which we both still miss terribly; curse you Blizz!) She’s my main tank pet and really the only one that hasn’t been wtf-redone by Blizzard so far when it comes to pet talents (knock on wood!).
Love her because she’s a powerhouse. Still #1 in the stables.
Tamed as Rak’shiri way back in the day when she was the top tier raiding cat of Vanilla WoW, one of the only big cats with Claw, Bite and Growl #6. This cat has been a guild mascot (“The Dragon Knights” on Windrunner, Shu’Halo, Caelestrasz and Saurfang), a raid icon and followed my huntress through a race/faction change from Alliance/Dwarf to Horde/Goblin. She’s been with me for ten years this November.
Love her to bits, she ain’t going anywhere <3
Ahh, the fabled Araga, the first ever Liger model ingame (she used to have a striped tail) and later the “Ghost of Southshore” as she became known. This cat plagued my existance from level 1 to level 70; I never saw her alive. Saw her corpse often enough to be fuelled with an unending desire to tame her. My guild called this cat my “great white whale” because she haunted my dreams throughout all the raiding we did. She finally granted me an audience with her shortly after we’d cleared Karazhan for the first time. I went out to her spawn site…and was greeted with her, still alive and untouched, pathing about her spawn site without a care in the world. Back then, we didn’t have glyphs which shortened the tame time (we had to rely on stacking haste back then!), so a 20-second tame meant anyone could kill those lovely pets on you during taming. She’s not been seen outside my stables much (Boannan takes precedence these days), but I do run with her on occasion.
She’s the Pridemother of my Stables. She’s not going anywhere either.
Oh this Warg…Old Cliff Jumper! Like Amenti, this guy plagued my dreams for years. He spawned originally amongst the wolves and gryphons of Aerie Peak, a very high-traffic zone for most level 40 - 50’s back in the day. Finding him alive was one in a million. Mostly I just saw his corpse, or happened upon someone who had just killed him. I had the worst luck with pets when I first started out. When they upped our Stables Complement to five, I went out looking for him again, just on the off-chance maybe I’ll find him. Didn’t happen. I ended up taming a Praerie Wolf (the lowbie ones that bark when clicked on) instead. We didn’t click and I ended up letting him go. I ended up switching to my levelling Nelf Druid when I finally spotted him for the first time in 3 expansions; just ambling over that hilly area without a care in the world. I freaked. It was a mad fucking scramble from Ironforge out to Aerie Peak on Lazona, my then-Dwarf Huntress, praying to god I wasn’t going to get there and find a corpse again. Managed to tame him right as a horde pally and warlock pair tore through wiping out everything in the area. He’s the Prideleader of my stables, alongside Amenti. I haven’t had the heart, or the spine really, to abandon either of them.
I’m very fond of this ragged, old warg =)
Yes, I remember the stir Loque’nahak caused all hunters the world over when his model was first announced and subsequently released in WotLK. It was difficult not to be excited with a Spirit Beast species. But…I had trepidations about this model. I was actually more after King Krush (Vermithrax) than I was Loque. Being on a high-pop server inevitably means someone’s going to be a-hole enough to ruin your day, and that happened with both King Krush and Loque’nahak several times over. When I finally did get Tiberias in my stables, it came out of a King Krush tame gone wrong where I got griefed by the former leader of Gnomeland Security who had gone Horde; he saw his old guild name and proceeded to be a cuntwipe, killing the devilsaur on me with seconds off the tame. Yeah, it was really painful for me considering I’d been up three days straight trying to get that ‘saur to spawn for me in the first place; I realise it’s just pixels, but the time lost on that beautiful green devilsaur really cut me up something shocking. Gave up on the spawn zone…for all of a day. Yes, I’m a very stubborn bitch. Look who greeted me on the outer edge of the zone without a care in the world: Loque’nahak. I named him after Jeremy Irons’ character in Kingdom of Heaven, because that roar is so much love!
Tibs is a mainstay, and he’s not leaving the stables.
Lifemate to Tiberias (mainly due to that neat little storyline involving Har’koa), and was the second spirit beast to drive me NUTS for an entire expansion =D This pretty kitty was always going to end up in my stables no matter how much I claimed I didn’t like the glowy tiger models. But…she gave me a runaround. I was either too late or too early to her spawn zones, and raiding didn’t give me much chance at seeing her spawn at any time during the proceedings. I eventually started camping really late at night on weekends in the hope of spotting her. Funnily enough, she chose the very last week prior to Cataclysm’s launch to grant me an audience finally!
After all that blasted headache, she’s a mainstay of my stables, and because of Tibs she ain’t goin’ nowhere <3
Funny story; this guy started out as a Feral Dragonhawk Hatchling and stayed that way for a whole expansion (BC). When they announced that this “Sunwell” model was becoming tameable, he moulted XD! I adore Ilarion, he’s a svelte little larrikin in my stables. I was using Dragonhawks as main pets in raiding before they were considered useful by any means, and Ilarion became a secondary guild mascot a number of times as BC ended and WotLK progressed into Cataclysm. I love this model ingame, it has the exact same colours as my wedding dress did, which is probably why I adore it so much.
He’s a lovebug too, which helps in my character’s storyline =3
King Krush, the bane of Shola’zar Basin! Like Sibylla, this guy was a pain in the @$$!! Lost him to the former GL of my then-guild because he decided to play the bastard card, and every time since that day, he invaded my dreams and my nightmares. I’ve seen him as a corpse more times than I’ve seen myself die in raids, that’s how long this overgrown neon green lizard plagued me. I lost him a further two times due to a hunter of my own race (then Dwarf) and because of his then-spawn path which took him directly into the path of the patrolling NPC guards. I figured I probably should give up on this guy and just go after King Mosh (Pejorative), which I did end up doing so, but I came back for this guy because my huntress and I are completist bitches. When he finally did spawn, I had the gear and the HP and the means to interrupt that blasted fear of his.
He was finally mine, and after all that bullshit, he ain’t going anywhere!
King Mosh, the “DAMN I’M HUGE!” rare spawn resident of Un’Goro Crater, brother to Vermithrax and a great deal easier to locate and tame than King Krush was! Nothing really to report about Pej - I’d been killed by him many times levelling through Un’Goro back in Vanilla, promised his scaly ass that when he became tameable I’d come back for him, and when they announced Devilsaurs were BM only, I took off back to Crater for him. Found him with no trouble - he was nomming on several lowbies at the time. Like Vermi, Pej is just a joy.
I really didn’t see myself having Vermithrax without Pejorative alongside him, so Pej stays put :)
Ah, Skoll…compatriot companion in arms to the fabled Vyragosa and Time-Lost Proto Drake… There’s a funny story attached to this spirit beast. Back in the day, Hunters used to have a “flavor text” addon called PetEmote, which would have some adorable little emote lines based on a pet you had out (as far as I’m aware it’s no longer being updated these days). I used to have it back when I tamed the WotLK beasts, and it actually identified Skoll as a she. I had this great name picked out for Skoll (Qaleteqa)…and it threw me for a loop. She ended up being named “Arundhati” and she’s been the #2 bitch of my stables (the #1 being Nightshade). I don’t know whether it’s her model that has the issue or if it’s the AI program itself, but she rarely comes to my aide if I have her in the main pet slot- hence the “bitch” part!
But for all the bitchiness, I’m very fond of Ms Zappy Zap here; someone’s gotta do Nightshade’s job when the scaly one’s out and about with me after all XD!
Anonymous asked: Richard Dean Anderson is...?
Please tell me you’re asking about his Jack O’Neill days because I saw a recent photo of him and it was more disappointing than Brendan Frasier.
Hello, friend and fellow Stargate fan! Did you know that RDA is 64 years old, and has been basically retired from acting for nine years? That’s nine years during which he focused on building his house; being a single, full-time dad to his daughter, who is now a teenager; and traveled around the world to dozens of fan conventions. Also during that time, he had several surgeries he’d been putting off for years until he had the time off to do them, including multiple painful foot surgeries and surgery to correct a blocked heart valve, in addition to dealing with chronic back pain and knee pain from all the times he injured himself over the years doing stunts and just, you know, living life. A couple of times, he was forced into extended periods of recovery and inactivity, and required medications that caused weight gain. And did I mention that the man is 64 years old?
*sigh* You know what? I’m tired of having this discussion about anyone. Because A PERSON’S VALUE DOES NOT LIE IN THEIR APPEARANCE. Not Richard Dean Anderson’s, not Brendan Frasier’s, not Angelina Jolie’s, not yours, not mine, not anyone’s.
Look. It’s rude to comment on other people’s bodies, whether they’re famous, or your sister, or “they used to be hot!” All human beings age. RDA has just as much worth as a person now, as a fat old guy, as he did as a young fit guy—and he certainly has more wisdom. Please don’t reduce him, or anyone, to a mere body with an attractiveness expiration date by focusing on something as changeable as appearance.
My friend Bethany rarely goes off, but when she does, it’s excellent.
(It’s also usually about Richard Dean Anderson.)
When the hubby and I saw Richard Dean Anderson at OZ Comic Con 2013, the highlight of both our lives as he’s played a major part for us as Stargate fans, he apologised profusely for his appearance throughout the entirety of the convention.
This made a lot of us nerds in attendance there constantly and consistently reassure him throughout both days that he had absolutely NOTHING to be ashamed about in regards to that. He promised he’d be “better-looking the next go around”, because it got to him that so many people out there, especially like you posey, figured they had every right to to remind him at every turn that he was “an ugly cunt” now and “should go back to looking perfect like he did in his youth”.
That said, he stayed at OZCC on the Sunday night until very late, with a red eye midnight flight to catch, to ensure every single congoer who had come to see him got his autograph come hell or high water.
Shaming him because he doesn’t match your Hollywood body standards is laughable at best. He spent time out of work to look after his daughter, who is just as beautiful a soul as he is. He spent years of inactivity trying to get better so he could return to the convention circuit. Worst of all, he felt the need to apologise for being HUMAN.
He doesn’t have to apologise FOR ANYTHING. Least of all your overblown standards on his beauty.
Message me with a character that you associate me with.
The Girls I Babysit:
- Carly: What are those? (pointing to my scars on my wrist)
- Me: They're battle scars.
- Anna: Cool! Can I have some?
- Me: Please don't ever get some okay? But when you seem someone with them like the ones I have on their wrists go hug them. Don't ever make fun of them okay?
- As we're walking around Wal Mart with both of them holding my hands, a young girl walks by us. Carly and Anna go and hug her. She hugs these two adorable little girls back
- Girl: Why are you hugging me?
- Carly: You have battle scars. *points to her wrists*
- And through her tears she looks up at me and smiles.
- If you don't reblog this... I don't know what I'd do, just reblog it.
