Exploring the other side

Polarlys1

The Horde has always been my favorite faction. I’ve only played Alliance for short time in Wrath of the Lich King when I leveled my druid Syrco to join a raiding guild on Alliance. It felt a bit wrong to be on that side because I’d always been Horde. But I stayed Alliance for Ulduar, Trial of the Crusader and Icecrown Citadel. This was also when I leveled my shaman Tojo. I went back to Horde in the end of the expansion and my druid and shaman became Horde.

I haven’t played a lot on the Alliance side since then. I only leveled a worgen mage to 85 in Cataclysm to see the worgen zone and to see what it was like being Alliance at that time, but I stopped playing it after a few hours on 85 because I didn’t have anyone to play with and went back to Horde.

I’ve wanted a max level character on Alliance for a while now because it’s so much easier to play with friends from other realms now and I haven’t leveled an Alliance in Pandaria so I would like to see what it’s like. My boyfriend and I decided to level up some characters together. We finally had some spare time to play now after the move and between work and enjoying the summer.

So he created a night elf priest and I created a pandaren shaman. My shaman is called Polarlys which directly translates to polar light, but it means the aurora, both borealis (north) and australis (south). I chose a pandaren because I really like the pandarens and my Horde shaman is also a pandaren. I wanted to level a shaman because it’s one of my favorite classes and I’ve never leveled as enhancement so that’s what I’m doing now, but I might go resto and heal when I hit max level. We’re on Frostmane EU and would like to join a Scandinavian guild as socials.

Leveling today is so easy, with all the heirlooms, fast queue for dungeons and right now the Darkmoon Faire carousel buff which gives you 10% extra experience. We’re not playing every day, but I think we’ll level up pretty fast. If anyone of you are leveling an alliance character on EU and would like to join us for a few dungeons, let me know :D

Do you have characters on both Horde and Alliance? Which faction is your favorite and why?

 

Alt Appreciation: Priest

Laeleiweyn of World of Lae started a challenge where we are to celebrate our alts. Every class has its own week and during that week we’ll post something about that class.

My priest is a level 80 female blood elf. She was one of my favorite alts back in WotLK. I used to run ICC alt runs with her as discipline. It was different back then and I enjoyed it. But I can’t say that I’ve played her a lot after WotLK. I have been thinking about it. Maybe trying PvP as healer, but I’m not sure because I just started doing PvP on my resto shaman which is a lot of  fun.

But I might level up my priest one day, before WoD, it’s only 10 levels and it would be fun to try priest again after such a long time.

Do you play a priest? What do you like about it and why?

Alt Appreciation: Paladin week

My current leveling project is my paladin. It’s not going fast as I haven’t had the time to level him lately, but I’m planning on doing so very soon. He’s a level 44 tauren holy paladin called Holystrider.

Alt Appreciation: Mage week

Laeleiweyn of World of Lae has started this new challenge where we are to celebrate our alts for the next 11 weeks. Every class has its own week and during that week we’ll post something about that class.

This is my mage, Raxxi, which I don’t play a lot. She’s only level 85 and spends most of her time in front of the auction house selling green items.

This week is hunter week!

To be honest, I haven’t spent much time playing my hunters over the past years. I actually got two hunters, one is really old and used to be a night elf but is now a goblin stuck on an old dead realm. I leveled a new hunter earlier this year, you can find the post about it here, A female pandaren. But I just haven’t had the time or energy to gear it up and play it, which is sad because it was really fun to level it up.

Hopefully I’ll have more time soon.
