Choose My Adventure Live: Goblin shaman wins by a nose


Choose the adventures of Robin Torres as Roblinator the goblin shamanator or join in with <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

You've chosen to continue the live adventures of Roblinator, the goblin shamanator. I'm rather surprised, actually, because I thought a more advanced player would be chosen. I've never taken a shaman past level 11, so I'm going to need your help. Please join me on the stream above, the chat room after the break and/or in game on Zangarmarsh. Polls for Roblinator's future are after the break, as well.

Update: The stream is now over. You may watch the video replay by clicking on the image above.


Elemental was chosen for the spec. Yay! But now you need to choose my professions. Note: I already have a high-level alchemist/herbalist on the realm, so that's why I didn't include that otherwise awesome choice. Roblin and Robinemia are pretty advanced in both engineering/mining and enchanting/tailoring, but I included those anyway in case you feel that strongly about it.

When choosing Roblinator's quest areas, please choose the ones you'd like to watch the most and/or read about. This isn't a contest for The Best Zone. This is a contest for The Most Entertaining Zone to Boss Roblinator Around. Though, in this particular level range, I think the top two choices for Entertaining and Best would be the same.


Last week, Roblinator had just been rescued from the shipwreck and began her adventures on the Lost Isles. Unfortunately, the Lost Isles is so very phased and so very isolated that no one was able to join her for most of her adventures. Here are some highlights:
  • exploding monkeys
  • picture-taking in a cave
  • meeting the orcs
  • weed whacking
  • sacrificing myself to the Teraptor Matriarch
  • taking a kitty ride
  • getting to the gyrochoppa
  • meeting the Precious Cargo
  • becoming a cyclone
  • having The Spawn join the commentary, whether I liked it or not
  • more explosions
Let's talk about the Terapator Matriarch for a moment. It was fun attempting her, even though she was level death elite. The reasons I did not try to recruit from guild or general chat are:
  1. Recruiting takes a while and the waiting is boring. These are important factors when we are streaming live.
  2. The zone is so very heavily phased that the actual number of available people is very low, probably 1.
I don't mind impossible adventures at all. Death in WoW is only a mild inconvenience and can be highly entertaining, particularly with the female goblin death animation. So keep suggesting them!

Today's adventures begin in the Town-in-a-Box. I have a sneaking suspicion that the Trade Prince is up to no good.
Please join us on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H) in <It came from the Blog>. Guild ranks of Blog Lurker or above can invite, so /whisper Robiness or any online member. You are all welcome as long as you play by our simple rules -- basically, don't be a funsucker! Visit the guild FAQ for more details.
