On bears, bows, and Rp

May 25, 2010

I’ve dusted off my hunter recently, and I’ve been having a blast. Skybreak, the hunter, was my first character and only recently has Mitawa, the druid, managed to creep past Sky in time /played. Sky doesn’t have use his birdy anymore and I’ve been meaning to head back to Winterspring to release him, but even so the change to playing DPS is incredibly fun. Yes- I know, I know, the great thing about druids is that they can play any role in the game but… Well, I don’t -really- get along with mana bars, and I’m just generally “teh suck” when it comes to Cat form. (Read: I do better damage in tree form than when I try to stand behind a boss as a Cat and try to look busy…). So I’ve been using hunter as my way to enter into that fascinating realm of damage meters and it’s been absolutely awesome.

On the other hand, where does that leave “Going Bearfoot”? Well, I could just abandon it. I could make some big move to a new, shiny blog with a new name and be all a druid/hunter thing. Or…… I could just stay here because I rather like the name, I don’t relly feel like starting something new, and ultimately this is my little dictator ship and I say so because it’s my project! MUAHAHAHAHA- *ahem*. Sorry.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is… I love all my characters (All near-50 of them. Yes. 50. Because 50 is the character cap or there might be more…) and I don’t really see myself as being on the cutting edge of druid information right now. Sure, I’ve been tanking and healing in ICC, but between you and me? I don’t really think my healing has been as good as it used to be lately, and I just don’t have that much to say about bears that hasn’t been covered elsewhere, with a spreadsheet.

What will I be doing here then? Well, I’ll be making this more of a personal ‘Blog than the questionable resource I might have thought I was writing before. (Yes, I really thought that somehow I was going to be doing theorycrafting, when I’d never done it for myself let alone for other people on a huge platform!) I’ll end up with a random mix of classes, probably a good number of Friday Fives from Too Many Annas and just whatever catches my fancy.

The Good News: the ‘blog will still live! Yay! And there will still be posts like the Cow Skeleton and the nature of good and evil (Which still seem to draw at least 5 views a day- go figure, I guess there just aren’t that many anatomical drawings of cow skeletons on the net these days).

The Bad News: There will be no predicable pattern or frequency to the posts. As the summer wears on, I will probably set myself goals to get back into the swing, but don’t expect anything especially regular for awhile.

On the other hand: I haven’t updated in months, and should anyone still come back and check here for updates once in awhile… you certainly aren’t “expecting any regularity in my posts” now are you???

Ah well, it makes me feel better to type like I’ve been a responsible writer with an adoring public all along, so try not to tell my self-esteem and ego that it’s not true, kay? I mean, that would be like poking a puppy with a sharp stick. YOU WOULDN’T POKE A PUPPY WOULD YOU?

*shifty eyes*

Yeah, and that wasn’t a low blow or anything. Yep.

So. TLDR- I’ll be posting again, but without any attempt at an overarching theme or with deadlines.

Happy summer!

P.S. Yeah, those pictures aren’t really supposed to make any sense, I just felt like putting in lots of pictures of random happy tauren!


Paw Paws

April 14, 2009

pawpawSo, I’m posting late. It’s still Tuesday though! See, one of the unfortunate things about being a student is that right about now and early December you end up going into a giant cyclone of frenzied final DOOM. To be honest, I hadn’t even started to download the patch until now (11:00 pm CST). In any case this is going to be short, in addition to finals I also have some heavy family stuff going on.

I’m here today to introduce you to a word you will all use. Why will you use this? Because the odds of my ever becoming the high evil dictator/overlord of the planet are pretty slim, so I’m going to cash in my chance at the big pot for a smaller prize, i.e. my very small authority over you now. Muahahahaha!

In my one and only act as fleetingly high evil overlord/dictator of the world, I command you all to use this new word:

Paw Paw Bears

What is a Paw Paw Bear you ask? Why, that’s simple! It’s a druid bear using his/her second spec to heal. It’s perfect, you see. A bear and a tree all at once! My brilliance reigns supreme!!11!!


In any case, hopefully some of you remember this cartoon from back in the day.

This got me wanting to edit their theme song to apply to warcraft, but a) It’s a little to simple to do much with and b) I’m angry that wordpress tries to put a double space between all my lines. I need to figure out how to change that.

In any case, have a good Tuesday!
