Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 36 is “Farewell to Legion”, this is part 1 – “What were your top 3 moments in Legion?”. You can find other people’s posts on their website.
I’m cheating a little and only one of these is actually a single moment but I didn’t want to limit the other two things to one specific moment because there’s been too many.
Becoming “The Unstoppable Force”
I did a lot of PvP in Legion. A LOT of PvP. I originally got into it for the prestige mounts but then I found out about “The Unstoppable Force” title and I fell in love. I had to have it.
I was mostly doing the PvP world quests and only occasionally battlegrounds (mostly the brawls) so I had to take several breaks because doing the same world quests every day can get boring very quickly. When I was trying hard, I could get one prestige level every two weeks but they were not fun two weeks.
But it was worth it. So worth it. It took me about 15 months (will all those breaks) but I got to prestige 18 and earned my title.
The prestige system was so well done. I loved it. And it felt great to work for something so long and then finally getting it. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it but I did. My stubbornness won over my laziness and that doesn’t happen often..
All the moments in death knight class campaign
And of course THAT moment when we did THAT thing. If you’ve done it, you probably know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t done it, I recommend you do, even if you know what happens there, because hearing about it or seeing a video doesn’t make it justice.
As much as I loved my mage class campaign (and paladin and shaman too of course), the one for death knight left me speechless. I had all the feels, including all the evil feels. Especially all the evil feels.
There have been evil things in WoW that I didn’t want to do but had no other choice (looking at you, Desolace, and more recently, Sylvanas) but this felt right. It’s what death knights do.
Every time Aluneth whispered to me
Arcane mage artifact weapon was Aluneth, Greatstaff of the Magna and he ocassionally whispered creepy things. Still does, actually.
My favourite skin is the PvP one. Very appropriate for smashing Horde’s faces.
English is not my first language and it’s harder for me to understand what someone is saying unless I hear them very clearly so I play with voice volume way up. If someone starts talking when I don’t expect it, it gives me a heart attack. Aluneth has great voice acting by Matt Mercer and if you know Matt’s other roles or ever saw him DMing an evil character, you know how creepy that man can be..
The full list of his whispers is here and my favourite is the one he sometimes says during casting Conjure Refreshment: “The very powers of the ancient titans are at your command, and you choose to create… tasty treats?”
Yes, Aluneth, I’m an Archmage and I’m using my magic to make pastries. I love pastries.
He also says a lot for Spellsteal and Greater Invisibility which I use mainly in PvP so it was nice when he was cheering me during battlegrounds. Even though it was creepy.
“A very tactical move, my child. You are learning.”
