Spiffy New Things
Wow, would you look at this, I have a website. Like a legitimate website that was built using HTML, see up there it has a for real domain name, and look, look, there’s custom art for my header! Pssst, this thing is being hosted, like on a real server, with real not from India tech support. I’m getting fancy.
For Reals Beginning
Welcome one, and all to Aunaka Heals. A blog about me and my druid. So here I am writing the first ever post for Aunaka Heals (Edit: Second, cause of stuff and things.) and hoping to make it a great one.
I’ve been playing a druid since you could play druids and I’ve had an adventure or two along the way, some are happy, some are sad, but most of them involve other people and making terrible decisions that result in someone’s death or near death.
I figured if I’m going to write about them, I should probably start from the beginning, when I first started to play World of Warcraft, and decided that I wanted to be a druid, and become a great druid healer.
Yeah, that’s not what happened.
I WANTED TO BE A MAGE, DAMN IT!
After 7 years one of the coolest things I’ve been a part of was getting to BETA test WoW before it ever launch. I wish I was awesome enough to have gotten a BETA invite myself, but I had a friend back then that was, and did get an invite, he was generous enough to let me tool around on it. So I played a mage, and exploded things with glitchy fiery goodness. I thwarted the undead, and was overall very excited to play a mage when the game actually dropped.
There I was, staring at the character creation screen, I was definitely going to be human, and I was pretty positive I was going to be a Mage. I tooled around with maybe being a warlock, since it was also a caster class, and they had a pet. Then my phone rang, and my life changed. (Dramatization.)
“Hey, what’s up?”
“Nothing much, Angie and I made our characters. I’m playing a Warlock (ok, so that was out.), and she’s playing a Mage.”
“Char, you still there?”
“Yup, I’m still here, it’s going to take me a while to make a character, I’ll call you back.”
Well now what was I supposed to play? Yes, I suppose I could have still played a mage, but meh it was a new game and we were going to level together, and rainbows were going to be created from our happiness. (Ok maybe not that last part.)
So I was back to the drawing board. I knew a couple of things for sure, I didn’t want to play a tank. The idea of being hit in the face repeatedly by the boss wasn’t particularly appealing to me, I didn’t want to melee DPS, and I wanted to be magic. So here I am scrolling through my choices when I come up on icon of a bear claw, I had dismissed it thinking it would be melee DPS. (Cause that’s what bears are in real life.) I stopped and gave it a good read.
A healing class, huh, well I could get behind healing. As a Wiccan, in RL, I could totally see being a nature based healer. So I did it, I rolled a sweet night elf druid, and the rest as they say is history.
