What's been your favorite expansion?
Honestly, I would say Wrath of the Lich King. Each expansion has its strengths and weaknesses: Cataclysm was ambitious, and The Burning Crusade was game-changing, but Wrath has (in my opinion) the perfect balance. It has the most cohesive design (visually, musically, lore-wise) and really felt like its own self-contained pocket of Azeroth. While I love Cataclysm, Wrath will always be my favorite.
Horde or Alliance?
For the Horde! But I have no hard feelings against the Alliance. They're cool people.
What's your favorite thing to do in Azeroth?
Explore! I love exploring! I'm the kind of player who can easily spend several hours just poking around the dusty nooks and crannies of the world. I also love questing and generally faffing about and being industrious with crafting.
What's your favorite piece of loot?
The Pillar of Ferocity, from the Battle of Mount Hyjal raid. I fell in love with it so much that it became Cadistra's in-comic weapon.
What's your favorite mount?
Coincidentally echoing Matt Walsh
, it's my Cenarion War Hippogryph.
Reading up on the lore, it's apparently a huge honor for a druid to get their hippogryph, and I worked really hard to get that. It's also very much an in-character mount for Cadi, as she rides it whenever she's on "druid business." My ground mounts are a tie between Anzu, the Raven Lord
and my White War Talbuk.
Nothing says a powerful druid like taking an invader from the Emerald Dream and making it your mode of transportation.
What's the best way to make gold?
Be diligent with your dailies, and play the Auction House.
What's the #1 thing Blizzard has done great?
Made an amazing game by people who are truly passionate about what they do.
What's the #1 thing Blizzard could do better?
Nothing honestly comes to mind. I'm not a rabid fangirl, but I am very easy to please.
When I'm not playing WoW, I'm...
Working at my full-time job, drinking tea, and drawing. I run the webcomic World of Warcraft, Eh?
, which is a webcomic starring Cadistra the Tauren druid and Kissless the Blood Elf paladin. I've had to take a bit of a break, as life didn't allow for comics, but I'm chomping at the bit to get back to it.
I also do a weekly video gaming podcast called Polygamerous
with a few other fellow gamers. It records every Monday at 8:30 p.m. Pacific.
What accomplishments are you most proud of in game?
There are a few achievements I'm proud of, but mostly I'm just proud of my amazing guild! Although I am sad that I haven't yet gotten Stood in the Fire. Come to think of it, I haven't even seen Deathwing torch a zone yet! Is he avoiding me?
