About me

Hi, I’m Simon, but I’ll be referring to myself by my character names in future, because I’m cool like that. I’d like to give you some basic info on myself for my first post, so you’re not clawing your eyes out with the frustration of knowing more about me.

I am Horde.

Always been Horde, my highest level Alliance is level 10, and the only thing that will get me to level one is Worgen, because I loves dem der Wolf men.

Vash – My level 80 Blood Elf Protection Paladin, and the name by which I’ll probably be referring to myself, as he’s my main. I started this guy on the release day of Burning Crusade, having only had a level thirty something Tauren Shaman at that stage. I instantly fell in love with the way my Blood Elf could actually wear boots properly(Sill moo cows and their hooves), the excellent quest flow of the BE zones certainly didn’t hurt though. I went through the levels, and put my first points and all ones succeeding into the Protection spec. I did this because me and my friends were going to form a fully stocked 5 man group, and I was to be the tank. However, I surpassed their levels and they stopped playing their characters. For some reason I kept putting points into Protection and didn’t even level cleverly with multi mob killing. Oh no. I went at mobs one on one, in Protection spec, with a one hander and a shield. It makes a funny story, but I honestly don’t know how I managed to get up through those levels. He eventually reached 70 and I raided some Kara, ZA, and some Gruuls. I had a lot of fun. I then went into Wrath, raided some more, always as a tank. I’ve recently tried out both DPS and healing, with a good set of gear for both. I find them enjoyable, but my love will always remain with tanking.

Ironsights – My level 80 Orc Survival Hunter. I started this guy during Wrath, can’t remember how long ago. He was made because I loved how my brothers main, also an Orc Hunter, looked in all his kick ass raiding gear. This guy was great, because I’d never levelled a ranged DPS past 30, or even 20 I think. He was, without a doubt, the most fun I’ve ever had levelling. It was a complete blast playing him, all the way up through the old world, Outland, and Northrend. I got a saber worg (the normal Northrend worg) as soon as I could, and named him Rage. Yes, that is a cool name, admit it, you love it on the inside with all your squishy bits. I geared Ironsights up through some heroics and the odd PuG raid. I sort of left him for a while and concentrated on my main. I’ve recently played about with him some more, and am planning to gear him up a bit so he can get into some ToC 10 PUG’s and such, maybe get that awesome cannon gun.

I formed my own 10 man raiding guild with my three brothers about a month ago. While I sort of regret forming it with my brothers, as you can’t really tell them to do anything without them saying Fuck off, it’s been good to get some ICC bosses down. We’ve currently got the first quarter and then Festergut and Rotface down. We’ve been having troubles with getting people to gear up a tank of ours by running ToC. Our other tank is very unreliable, in case you were wondering why we were doing that. This has caused us to introduce some new guidelines, which I hope will resolve these issues. I expect it will halt raiding though, and we’re probably going to have to recruit more people. It’s been a great weight off my shoulders handing over control over raiding and such to one of my brothers, he’s less likely to take peoples shit than I am. I’m quite a softy really.

I like mounts and titles, and recently got my Champion of the Frozen Wastes title about a year or more after everyone else. I used to be quite the whore for mounts and such, but now I’ve lost that passion, they just don’t really excite me that much anymore.

I love the lore and story of Wow, I will often spend an hour or more just reading Wowwiki, going from link to link. I’ve only read the War of the Ancients trilogy (Broxxigar ftw), but I’d like to read more of the lore books. Mostly I wish to read Stormrage, and perhaps Arthas.

I am practically frothing at the mouth for Cataclysm to release. I can’t wait for some old world stuff again, the levelling experience there is dreadful compared to BC and Wrath, and it should be good to have some fun levelling alts. The addition of old world flying, and also Worgen are also things I’m going to love. Everything apart from Garrosh being Warchief, boo! I don’t like Garrosh. :<

I enjoy playing some Xbox 360 and PC games, so expect some posts on those when I can’t contain myself. Currently playing Final Fantasy 13 and hating everyone except Sazh! 😀

I am also a massive fan of huge Spiky Shoulder armour! Fuck besting the primeval forces of the netherworld, give me two slabs od metal with spikes coming out of them to sling on my shoulders, and I’ll be yours forever.
