Who do I cheat on WoW with?

Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 25 is “Who do you cheat on WoW with?”. You can find other people’s posts on their website.

WoW is love, WoW is life but I enjoy other games occasionally. Usually on weekends when I’m done with my dailies, emissaries and mount runs and I’m not in a mood for achievements or PvP. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, these are the games I play:

Assassin’s Creed games

My flatmate played various Assassin’s Creed games a lot and they always looked gorgeous and interesting so one day, I tried it. I played through the first one and quite enjoyed it. It’s from 2007 and it didn’t age well (video games barely do, in my opinion) and I struggled with the combat system but the story was captivating and the main character, Altaïr, was a lovable bastard.

I started the second one, Assassin’s Creed II, but haven’t got far yet. It looks better and the combat system is much easier. The story seems interesting so far and I hang out with Leonardo da Vinci. The main character, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, is a dummy so I hope he’ll find a brain along the way.

I love the visuals of this game. It’s mostly because of the clothes. They have some pretty amazing clothes.

Overwatch

I used to play Counter Strike when my brother organised LAN parties in our basement. I was average at it and I’m pretty bad at Overwatch but I love it! I never thought I’d play first-person shooter but I loved the characters and visuals. Blizz occasionally does Overwatch Free Weekend when you can play for free so I decided to try it and bought the game two days later.

Next one is actually this weekend,  September 22–25, so if you haven’t played Overwatch, you can try. I understand it’s not for everyone but I have a lot of fun playing it. I usually play McCree (he’s voiced by my crush and obsession Matt Mercer) or Zenyatta who’ s a healer.

Look at him. What a bad-ass motherf*cker!

Divinity: Original Sin

A friend suggested we play this RPG together because it has a solid multiplayer mode. The combat is turn-based which I don’t like but the gameplay is fine otherwise.

I find the overall story confusing at times but the side quests are fun. My character can speak with animals and it’s always funny. The voice acting in this game is amazing! There’s also an interesting crafting system and I’m constantly trying to bind different items together to see if something happens.

I usually enjoy it but it’s not my favourite style so I hope we finish it soon. I think I’ll suggest Diablo III as another game we could play together. I played through the main story about two years ago and it was great.

I have a list of various other games I would like to play (The Sims 4, Warcraft games, Deus Ex, Dragon Age games, Mass Effect games, .. ) but I already don’t have enough time to finish the ones I started. I really should stop falling in love with franchises and series..

The first week of 7.3 (spoilers!)

This post containt spoilers for the first week of 7.3 content. 

I’m a bit late with this, sorry, I was busy both in game and IRL. I also don’t have any screenshots (except for Turalyon from my twitter), I’m publishing this on my lunch break and I forgot to add them to wordpress and I’ll probably be too lazy to add them later.. If you want to see some awesome pictures of Argus, check out Alunaria’s post “For Azeroth”, it’s so good!  

I was looking forward to 7.3 and it didn’t disappoint! I love it so much!

The initial quests were great, I was so excited about finally meeting Alleria and Turalyon! Their models look awesome (Turalyon is quite a handsome guy and I really like the voice actor, Travis Willingham, so I’m very happy he’s finally in WoW) and I love their story. Meeting their son broke my heart. But it’s definitely weird that Turalyon, a human, welcomes you on an old draenei home planet. I know he’d been there and fighting Legion for a long time but I’d still like to see more draenei. And more Alleria. And more anyone who’s not Turalyon. But also a bit of Turalyon because he’s cool. I basically want all the things and all the characters!

My newest crush, Turalyon. He’s even shining!

The mobs on Argus hit hard and take some time to kill so I equipped my Prydaz again and it helped a lot! And when I’m starting to feel frustrated, I do WQs on the Broken Isles and kill all the things in two seconds. I’m still farming rep for paragon mounts from Suramar, Azsuna and Val’sharah. It will be slower now that emissaries are on the Broken Shore and Argus too but I’m not giving up. And now that I’m not flying again, the awesome carpet from Suramar can wait. But I’ll get it eventually. I have to.

The secret finding discord community found a way to obtain the Lucid Nightmare. It looks fun but I heard it could take a few hours and I haven’t found the time yet. I hope to try it out this week. How awesome are the people who figured it out?!

Illidan had some disturbing experience with Xe’ra. I know people are mostly on his side in this, I am too, but I still think this could’ve been resolved peacefully. Basically, I still don’t like him. I don’t think I’ll ever like him. But the “I am my scars” line was breathtaking and so relatable!

I didn’t do all WQs on Argus but I’m already Friendly with Argussian Reach and Honored with Army of the Light. I have no idea how far are other people but this seems solid after the first week. And Darkmoon Faire is in town so it will help get me further.

We’re getting some more content tomorrow so I’m already excited to see what happens next! I hope everyone is having a good time in 7.3 🙂
