Who am I? Part 1

Posted in About Me with tags , , , , , , , on September 16, 2009 by Randul the Dwarf

I was thinking about what I wanted to write about today, as my goal is to put a post out every weekday.  I honestly couldn’t think of anything of value to write, so I decided to pass for the day.  Then, as I was reading a forum I frequent, a topic hit me.  As a WOW player, who am I and how did I get here?  This is part 1 in a 2 part series.

Blocked!

As my previous post stated, I was so close to 80 I could taste it, then I was blocked.

My new video card arrived, a GeForce 9500GT 512 MB card. I put it in the computer, and everything starts going south at that point.

No Video Input.  Fine, I can deal with that.  I take the new card out and put my old card back in.  No Video Input.

Great.  It’s in the (hopefully)  capable hands of my bank’s IT department as we speak.  Hopefully they can get me up and running.  I can still hit 80 this weekend with 7 bubbles tonight and 7 bubbles tomorrow.

Wish me luck.

A whole new world…

a whole new exciting point of view!  No, not really.  It’s the same point of view, I’m just seeing it around different people in a different place.

I said goodbye to Undermine and transferred to Malygos.  Unfortunately, the name Randal was taken there (by some lowbie who doesn’t even register on the Armory) so I changed his name to Randul.  It kind of makes me think of LotR, the bridge of khazad dun.  Ran-dul.  Whatever, it’s me justifying a poor spelling.

The wife and I were pretty lazy about the first 5 levels, but now we are really burning through the last 5.  We will be 78 tonight, 79 by Sunday (hopefully) and 80 by Thursday or Friday.

Then we are going on a Heroic binge with the rest of the guild and getting into 10-mans.

Speaking of the guild, they are a pretty cool crew.  It’s the guild Dinner Goat on Malygos.  One of the co-gms (I think there are 3) has been playing online games with me off and on since 99.  We started in Ultima Online together, so we go way back.  We’ve got 7 regulars who will be of raiding level (when the wife and I get our butts to 80) and 1 more who is coming up.

I think it’s gonna be a good thing.

Next time, talking about gearing up mid-70’s for tanking.

Who is this short stocky fellow?

The name’s Randul, at least that’s one of the names I go by in the World of Warcraft.  I am a 29 year-old guy who plays WOW.  My main is currently a level 77 Dwarven Warrior.  I also play a 77 Human Death Knight and a 70 Gnome Rogue on the Malygos Server.

I’ve been playing this game since the spring of 2007.  I am in a casual guild who is going to start 10-man raiding as soon as my wife and I hit 80.  Oh, by the way, my wife plays a Holy/Disc Priest.

I started this blog, because I am very vocal about the things that interest me.  One of those things is WOW.  I don’t know what direction it will take.  I may rant and rave.  I may extol the virtues of the game.  I may give tips I’ve come up with while playing, or just keep the world updated on my progress.

I’ll try to keep it entertaining, and may have guest writers stop in from time to time.

Where’s me drink?
