My name is Shannon, and I play an alliance restoration druid named Hearthyn on the Korgath realm. That's right, I'm a World of Warcraft fanatic. An addict. I have 4 85's as a matter of fact, Hearthyn is simply my main.
And my baby.
And yes, I am well aware that hearthing is how we get home. But I wasn't at the time I created her. She was my very first toon, and I named her in honor of my daughter.
Ok, for some background info. I created Hearthyn in October of 2008, just before WotLK dropped. I had been fighting with my boyfriend for weeks, months even, about whether or not I actually "should" play mmorpg's. He insisted I would love them, and I insisted I hated playing online with other actual people. At that point my only experience with multiplayer games was MSN's The Zone, and I was tired of getting asked "a/s/l" and "what are you wearing" every time I played there. Also, I had watched him play Medal of Honor, and I was not interested in shoot-em-up type games.
I do love the guy, though, so I tried Guild Wars. Then Everquest. The first was fun, the latter was ok but to this day still gives me motion sickness. Plus, I knew my son played WoW from time to time. So I decided to try it, since he lives 2200 miles away and we could keep in touch more through the game.
Long story short, I now have 4 85's, play on 4 realms (albeit rarely on the other 3), have both horde and alliance toons, and am in a semi-casual raiding guild on Korgath.
Now, I have never felt the need to blog about my WoW play up to this point. But Cataclysm seems to be bringing out the elitist jerk in everyone lately. And I simply wanted 2 things: 1.) A place to vent; and 2.) A place to share links and secrets to help enhance play.
I have a level 85 warlock, death knight, and paladin. So I plan on sharing links I've found for those classes as well as my resto druid. Please, if you have information you would like to share, post it. I am always looking to better my game play and increase my effective healing and/or dps.
Welcome to my World of Whoa!
