A New Platform....and a New Name....

Things are changing here! I've decided to finally switch blogging platforms and move over to wordpress. Couple reasons for this - I'm not a huge fan of blogger's updated look for one, and since my other blogs are already over at wordpress, it would be nice to have them all at one place, under one author. I'm also going with a new name for the blog since I realised I've been writing less druid-specific stuff lately. There's also the possibility that I might be changing mains in the upcoming expansion and while the thought didn't seem quite real two years ago when I started The Dreamy Druid, its becoming more and more a possibility now.

The new name is Heals n Heels over at wordpress  - please update your blogroll and continue to read my musings over there. It's just a new platform and a new name....but it's the same blog with the same blogger =)

What's in a Main?

At the end of an expansion and on the brink of a new one, I always find myself looking back and evaluating my experience. The purpose of this reflection isn't to tear apart balance issues, class specific gripes or anything - but mostly to see if I'll be continuing on the same toon.

The question of who will be their main in the upcoming expansion is easy to those who have always only focused on a single character and a little more complicated for altoholics. To add to the mix, I now have the prospect of account wide achievements to consider. All of this has led to many moments of pondering and trying to figure out exactly where I fit in here.

MoP: Things I'm Stoked About

Recently, I haven't had much to say. I haven't been raiding ever since our raiding group retired and fact of the matter is, raiding is how I enjoy WoW. That coupled with the fact that Cataclysm hasn't really been fantastic in my eyes led me to wonder if I would even be playing this game come Mists. With the recent press release however, I've come across loads of information that have me rethinking that part. Here are the things I'm stoked about in Mists...

Caravan Conversations: Part II

Warcraft humour strikes again with the hilarious duo of Giddy Goldbraids and Tarenar Sunstrike. The "Paladin Pals" are enthusiastically on their way to join the Argent Crusade in the Eastern Plaguelands. In their last conversation, they were comparing zombie-kills....I wonder what they'd be bickering bout this time...

The Sixth Screenshot....

Glow of Glow's Branches kindly tagged me (egads....five days ago now) for the Sixes meme that's been going around! The game is simple:

- Go to your images folder
- Go to the sixth subfolder
- Publish the sixth image
- Pass it on to six fellow bloggers

I will admit that my images are anything but all neatly in one folder. So I resorted to looking at my WoW screenshot folder....except there were two of those. Ah, the disorganised life of Mely. Unable to pick between them, I will be posting the sixth image from each of these folders.

In the older screenshots folder, I came up with:

A random run in heroic Nexus - but look - I'm a tree! Good times good times! *sniff*

And now to see what's behind folder number 2....

Archaeology. Seriously?? Le sigh. It haunts me even here. 

And I now tag....

This is one of those posts that I've been trying to write for a while now. Every time I start writing things just close up or shut down inside and I end up deleting the draft. This has happened over and over and over again and here I am today hoping I can finally get it all out.
