Day 06 – Your workplace/desk

Husband and I both have a little room at the front of our house where our computers are! I have a student desk that my husband stripped down and modified for me last christmas. It now is missing 2 of its bottom drawers, but in return, My computer tower is housed there! There’s a window in front of my desk, that occasionally has a sleeping kitty in it. Sorry the picture is kind of terrible, the lighting is all wonky, plus it’s from a phone camera! My desk needs to be repainted, hence the dark spot in front of the keyboard :P, [ ... ]

Cataclysm Shadow Priest leveling guide 1-9

So you decided to be a priest? I noticed that there aren’t many leveling guides for priests anymore, and while you won’t actually be able to spec into shadow until Level 10, I’ll give you a short overview of things that you’ll *probably* want to know. As a heads up, this guide as well as my Mists of Pandaria Shadow Priest Leveling Guide are both works in progress as I level new toons, just for you!   Level 1: The only spell you have at this level is Smite, so go ahead and Smite anything that you see. Most things at this level (without [ ... ]

Mists – Shadow Priest Leveling Guide Levels 1-10

So you decided to be a priest? I noticed that there aren’t many leveling guides for priests anymore, and while you won’t actually be able to spec into shadow until Level 10, I’ll give you a short overview of things that you’ll *probably* want to know. Gear – Priests can wear Cloth, and that’s it! Our Primary Stat is Intellect, so don’t pick up anything with Strength or Agility on it if you can help it. They won’t do you any good! This also applies to anything you might see with Dodge or Parry Weapons – Priests can use 1H Maces, Daggers, [ ... ]

Day 05 – Fav. Item In game

Day 05 – Favourite item(s) in-game This might be expected, but I absolutely love the [Staff of Immaculate Recovery]. When they announced Transmogrification, I knew I wanted to gather all the pieces for the Avatar set, along with the Staff. Imagine my surprise when I looked in my bank, and found the staff hiding there! I wasn’t lucky enough to raid during the Burning Crusade, so it wasn’t like I saved it for sentimental value, I thought it was pretty, so I kept it after a night of running Black Temple with some friends/guildies. I also wasn’t one of the people who [ ... ]

Alts and Priests.

Today I asked a seemingly simple question on Twitter, “I now have 3 toons at level 24. Which to level. Mage, Shaman, or Warlock?” I got a slew of different answers ranging from “Warlocks are in short supply – you are our only hope!” to “Bah level your mage! Go arcane….you’ll like it”. There were probably 10 different people chiming in with their opinions and it made me begin to think about what I would say if asked a similar question. Would I tell someone to choose a priest? Absolutely! But why? Leveling casters or clothies isn’t that easy. Being a shadow priest [ ... ]

Day 04 – Best WoW Memory

Day 04 – Your best WoW memory This one’s really hard for me! Thinking back, I would have to say that the first time we’d downed a “current content” boss that we had to work hard on, which was probably Festergut in ICC. Our guild was kind of nooby all the way around, and we didn’t get started in Icecrown Citadel until after the gates had been opened to the Frozen Throne, actually, we didn’t get started raiding *anything* until then. We were convinced that even though we had “Charity epics” (Tier 9) we needed to get through some old raiding before [ ... ]

Day 03 – First Day of WoW

The First Day I ever played WoW was at @SnarkyWarlock’s (Mara’s) apartment. Finals were finishing up, and she was like “Just try it, it won’t hurt”. Let’s go back a few years. I was always a Nerd in High School. Maybe more of  Geek? I’m not sure. I do know that I didn’t play videogames though. The only game systems we ever had in my house were a Super NES, and an N64, even then, the *only* games that were purchased were ones that my Parents wanted to play. In High School, I would hear people talking about playing “World of [ ... ]

Day 02 – Why Start a Blog?

Day 02 – Why you decided to start a blog This one’s a hard one, I really like to write, even though at times, I don’t feel like I have anything at all to say. I am friends with a multitude of bloggers on Twitter, I was in a guild once where 90% of hte membership blogged, and even now, my Raid Leaders are Bloggers. I do feel a *teensy* bit of peer pressure, but I know in my heart I really wanted to do it! (Note, I started creating blogs before I was on Twitter, and before I joined said guilds. [ ... ]

20 Days of WoW Blogging – Day 01

Day 01 – Introduce yourself For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Asherrylie, or Ashe, for short. I have been playing WoW for about 3 years (I know, I know, a Wrath Baby).  I am, for the most part, a priest (hence the name of the blog!) though I have a few other maxed level toons, and a good handful of leveling toons. Ashe – In Game – loves Melting Faces. She raids 2 nights a week as a Shadow Priest in a guild that is currently 2/8H in Dragon Soul, and loves to spend time clearing old content with [ ... ]
