Choose My Adventure: Welcome our new adventurers!


Choose the adventures of the WoW Insider staff or join in with It came from the Blog on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

Joining Roblinator for future adventures in these pages will be Josh Myers, Joe Perez and Fox Van Allen. Yes, it's the return of Foxlight, the shirtless pally. Please keep the swooning to a minimum. Josh and Joe will be having you choose everything about their characters, but Foxlight just needs to know how and where to adventure. Roblinator will continue her shamanating ways, with your help and direction.

We'll be discontinuing the stream, but not the fun! We will be posting the schedules for each adventurer so that you can join them on their travels, and of course we will have polls and stories. Join us after the break to vote on what you'd like for our new adventurers.


First up, we have Mr. Josh Myers. Josh has recently leveled both a druid and a hunter, so they are not included in the choices. Everything else is fair game.

Okay, you're not really voting on Josh's gender, but his character's gender. You know what we mean.


The class will take precedence over the race. The race that wins will be the one that has the most votes and can have the class chosen.



Next, Mr. Joe Perez enters the fray with no restrictions whatsoever.


The same goes for Joe's class in that the class chosen will determine the race.



Foxlight is level 26 and ready for your adventuring choices. Please remember to vote for things that you think would be fun to hear about, not what you think would be best for faster leveling.


If questing is voted as part of the fun, where should that be?


Results from the polls will be in next week's post.

Roblinator's adventures

Last week, Roblinator, Kelius, Darkrozee, Prottal, and Seranne enjoyed some PVP. We queued for random Battlegrounds three times, and all three times, we got Arathi Basin. Of course, you know that means Thunderstorming Alliance off of the Lumbermill. We lost the first two games, but the third try was a win -- where we just squeaked it out and got an achievement.

I got Mind Controlled off the ledge many times, which is absolutely deserved but also fun. Justice can be painful. And I died many times, but I just don't mind. To me, Battlegrounds are about strategy, not trying to stay alive while killing as many as possible. I think that as long as you get over the dying part, even the most die-hard PVP hater can have fun in BGs too.

Future adventures

Roblinator's Choose My Adventure schedule will continue to be Wednesdays at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT, 11 a.m. server time). Next week is PVP again, and hopefully this week's dungeon run will have me wearing better clothing. We'll see.

The schedules of our three new adventurers will be posted next week along with new polls for how and where Josh and Joe should adventure. Since they will be spending at least three, if not 10, levels unable to do anything but quest, those polls are not urgent.

We will not be voting on professions, since those can really bog down an otherwise happy adventurer. Yes, this is me whining about Leatherworking again. I'm saving my coworkers from the agony.

Once Roblinator hits 60, I think it would be fun to gather players level 60 and above to try for tier 1 with World of Wardrobe as a guide. That's only four levels away, so if you are interested in joining us, level a character and get ready for Molten Core.

Please join us on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H) in It came from the Blog. All guild ranks can invite, so /whisper Roblinator 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.
