Fan Art: Lady Sylvanas Windrunner

Here are some of my favorite fan created pieces of Sylvanas Windrunner. :) Enjoy

Well, who doesn't love Mail heels? 

I really like how she looks a bit more "evil" in this picture. 

Victory for Sylvanas :) 

I kind of like this one because she looks slightly......innocent.

Now, I am not sure, but this kind of seems like it is showing her transformation. Or perhaps it is something relating to her sisters....not quite sure here. but still, an interesting take for those of you that prefer something a bit "cuter"

I really like the detail in this one. The bow is kind of plain, but I think its pretty cool.

She is a bit more clothed in this one :P 

I need to read up on lore, because I am confused about the bullet-looking wound in her torso.

This one is probably my favorite. She looks like she is looking for revenge. Again, I am not sure, but to me, the ladies in the back look like Valkyr...correct me if I'm wrong. 

If anyone wanted to see Sylvanas practically naked, here you go....

This one has AMAZING detail and shading.

Dying, and looks like she is being revived by the Valkyr. 

Just a little Tidbit on Sylvanas that most people know (but don't be ashamed if you didn't): she is one of the Windrunner sisters. She was once a High Elf and then was transformed by Arthas via a curse(The Lich King) into a Banshee. She is now known as the banshee queen. 

Sylvanas Windrunner Quotes:

  • We are the Forsaken. We will slaughter anyone who stands in our way.
  • What are we if not slaves to this torment? 
  • What joy is there in this curse? 
  • I have no time for games. 

During the meeting in Silverpine Forrest

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Where is that Ogre headed buffoon?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Ah, speak of the devil ...
Portals from Orgrimmar arrive with Hellscream, Hellscream's elite, and High Warlord Cromush.
Hellscream jumps from the portal down to Sylvanas.
Garrosh Hellscream says: This better be important, Sylvanas. You know how I detest this place and its foul stench. Why have you called for me?
Garrosh Hellscream says: And more importantly, what are those Scourge fiends doing here?
Garrosh makes a gesture at the Val'kyr.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Warchief, so glad you could make it.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: With the death of the Lich King, many of the more intelligent Scourge became...unemployed. Those 'fiends,' as you so delicately put it, are called val'kyr. They are under my command now...
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: ...and they are part of the reason that I asked to see you.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Get on with it Sylvanas.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Very well, Warchief. I have solved the plight of the Forsaken!
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: As a race, we Forsaken are unable to procreate.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: With the aid of the val'kyr, we are now able to take the corpses of the fallen and create new Forsaken.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Agatha, show the Warchief!
The Val'kyr Agatha proceeds to resurrect fallen corpses as Forsaken.
High Warlord Cromush says: ABERRATION!
Garrosh Hellscream says: What you have done here, Sylvanas... it goes against the laws of nature. Disgusting is the only word I have to describe it.
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Warchief, without these new Forsaken my people would die out ... Our hold upon Gilneas and northern Lordaeron would crumble.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Have you given any thought to what this means, Sylvanas.
Garrosh Hellscream says: What difference is there between you and the Lich King now?
Lady Sylvanas Windrunner says: Isn't it obvious, Warchief? I serve the Horde.
Sylvanas mockingly salutes Garrosh.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Watch your clever mouth, bitch.
Garrosh Hellscream says: Cromush, you stay behind and make sure the Banshee Queen is well "guarded." I will be expecting a full report when next we meet.
High Warlord Cromush says: As you command, Warchief!
Garrosh Hellscream says: Remember, Sylvanas, eventually we all have to stand before our maker and face judgment. Your day may come sooner than others...

World of Warcraft Artwork--Blood Elves

So, I kind of am in love with this fan art of a blood elf hunter. Mainly because it is what I do :) Love the multi-arrow!!!

Wonderful artwork and interpretation of a blood elf. so wispy and  frail looking, and yet she has so much power inside of her!
No words can express......

So, not technically a blood elf, and yet it makes me happy :) Vereesa Windrunner has such an interesting, and yet little known story. She was to help Rhonin (the "face" of the Kirin Tor) and then she fell in love with him...and later, they had a set of twins that were then kidnapped by her brother (their uncle) because he thought that the children of an elf and a (human) mage would be quite powerful. 

In game: she is standing next to Rhonin in the Violet Citadel in Dalaran. Just a little note though, she is a High Elf, and she doesn't really like Blood Elves being in Dalaran.

Top Gold Making Tips

Find out the raiding times of the biggest raiding guilds on your server.  Most of the larger raiding guilds on any server will have times posted on a website. Try looking up the top guilds on

Know the number one rule of gold making: BUY LOW, SELL HIGH! Now, simply repeat that until it is ingrained in your brain.

Know when to buy goods. The best time to buy goods will generally be midday on Monday-Wednesday. The logic behind this is that most auctions are 48 hours, and the most people are on during the weekend. So, if you use that to your advantage, you can be buying goods when the sellers are selling cheap (there are tons of people undercutting) and there are not that many people to buy all of the goods you are looking to buy.

Know when to sell goods  The best time to sell goods is one of two times. 1) sell goods like enchantments, Dusts, Gems (raw and cut), Glyphs and the like on days when the large raiding guilds are raiding. And 2) WEEKENDS! This is when the most people are online, and therefore the best time to get your goods out there. However, if you are selling things that are relatively easy to come by, you can bet you will be undercut a ton.

Get to know your realms bulk buyers and sellers Know your buyers so you can sell them things like gems, dusts, ore, herbs, and leather. You will have to give it to them cheaper, but at least it is all sold within a few minutes. Get to know your bulk sellers if you are going to be crafting items. You will likely have a lower profit margin, but you will also be getting more crafted items sold in a shorter amount of time since you will not have to go out and farm materials.

Learn how to market Many of the rules of the market in Azeroth are the same in the real world. Treat your customers fairly (i.e. if you are selling via trade chat, don't cheat your customers out of money or product.....) You will get hated from the second you do it and not many people (or at least not many return customers) will use your services.

Know the rule of Supply and demand When supply is up, demand is down (lower your prices). When Supply is down, demand is up (raise your prices).

Know your consumers When you are selling something relatively common, don't undercut by a gold, all you need to do is undercut by a single copper. This will give you enough of a boost to raise you to the top of the list (when sorted by price low-high, which is what most people do anyway) while still keeping your profits up. It is the same thing that goes in the real world. Because $19.99 just feels easier to spend than $20

Finally, Return customers are awesome  This goes along with the basic rules of any business, lots of new customers are great, but return customers will keep Beer Basted Crocolisk tail on the virtual table. Keep them coming back by being a good seller and try to "market" yourself by letting them know what you do and to keep you in mind. What I say to my customers is "Keep me in mind whenever you need [leather, ore, gems, enchants, etc.]" and that is how I get people to keep coming back. But my main way of making money is buying raw materials from bulk sellers and selling the crafted items at a profit (hey, skill is worth something....).

Salty Minxii-- Fishing in World of Warcraft

So, many people believe that fishing (and cooking for that matter) is a waste of time in World of Warcraft. In fact, many people think of fishing in real life as excruciatingly boring, so why, then, would one even want to begin VIRTUAL fishing? well, this post is about fishing in WoW and how to get started and how to level your fishing skill to 545.

First, let me start out by saying this, fishing is actually a easy (albeit long) way to level your cooking. However, it can actually be quite profitable as well. Everyone knows that it is much easier to buy a simple massive turkey leg, but why not make your food help you out even more. Food buffs stack with potions and elixir buffs, so what raider wouldn't want to add an extra 90 agility (dodge, parry, strength, intellect, spirit, etc) to give them that extra boost to the top of the charts? Leveling your fishing can help you out with your cooking leveling. Also, what level 85 geared tank wants to go out to kill boars to get level up their cooking? You can make money getting enough fish to level up your fishing and cooking in two ways. 1) you can sell the cooked food on the Auction house at an extra cost for your time and skill. and 2) you can sell the uncooked fish to high level characters that want to level their cooking skill without any effort. You can try getting enough fish of different levels by fishing up enough fish to level cooking from level 1-545. Another way you can make money through fishing is to sell the things you get through fishing. Non-combat pets, and rare items are some of the things you can get through fishing.

Fishing is one of those professions that is easily leveled. You can actually read a book while fishing in WoW. I have actually fished while at work (but I work in a family business, so this is not recommended.). It is so easy, you could let your kids do it (my friends 6 year old gets a kick out of the bobber....). There are many ways to level fishing depending on what your end goal is. You can fish in almost any water source and stand there and fish until you reach 545. I suggest if you want to get your salty title, to fish in the Dalaran well. I got everything I needed for my fishing title except for getting all of the coins and I had to stand there for hours before I got all of them (plus its nice to not get ganked while in your fishing gear....). To start fishing, simply go to a fishing trainer and buy a fishing pole from a nearby vendor, and put your "fishing" button on an easily accessible key. That is it. Seriously.

Life as a female gamer

Being a female gamer is not all fun and games.

1) Some male gamers seem to think that female gamers all play naked.....

2) The other extreme is the gamers that think that all gamer chicks are absolutely nasty.....

3) Most people think that as the "pretty gamer girl" I play on the alliance....why people think this, I have no a matter of fact, I play on the Horde. My main is a blood elf, but not because I like the racial abilities. However, I have characters in each race on the horde.

4) I don't quite understand why female gamers think they are the only female playing World of Warcraft. With a game with so many players, the chances of you being the only female player are so slim it is ridiculous.

5) Guys that play the game refuse to believe that I am actually a pretty decent player...they always seem to say something along the lines of "here let me show you how its done"...etc.... I may not be the number one player in the world, I know how to tank a damn dragon....easy peasy lemon squeezy.

6) All of the people that hear that I play horde think that I am some crazy lady that has "anger issues". While in reality, I am a well adjusted woman in my 20's.

Please don't underestimate female players. We actually are pretty rad. Now, I'm not talking about the girls that play to be the "queen geek". I am talking about the girls that are legitimately awesome and enjoy playing video games just as much as all the other awesome geeks out there.

note: Gamer girls are pretty cool to date...because we can tell you all about our adventures in Azeroth as well as helping you install more ram in your computer :) Plus, we look pretty snappy with our headsets on :D

World of warcraft leveling

In this post I will explain the best ways I have learned to level in world of warcraft. These are from my personal experience.

The most fun way to level (for me) is questing in a group. I suggest getting a free guide like jame's leveling guide to help you be the most efficient. There are many paid guides you can buy as well. most of these guides boast lightning fast leveling up to max level. While after a couple of characters this is probably true, for the average player these guides are great to follow, but it doesn't make leveling exponentially faster like the guides claim. However, these guides are great if you want to get quest completion achievements. in conclusion, these guides are great for seasoned players to level faster through questing, but for new players and players that only play a few hours a week, these guides are money spent without worthy results.

One of my other favorite ways to level, especially when I am listening to some hard rock and  screamo music is to just KILL KILL KILL. Grinding is a simple way to level. It takes a little longer to level than questing, but man, it sure does relieve stress in a weird way. while it can be done by any class and spec, some are better equipped than others. The best class to aoe (area of effect) grind used to be the frost mage with their massive aoe damage and their ability to get away from melee mobs and freeze them in place. They are still pretty good, but my favorite aoe grinder is the protection paladin. They have so many damage mitigating abilities, they wear plate mail, they have a shield, PLUS, they can heal themselves easily. A decently geared protection paladin can pull about 5 mobs at a time and kill them quickly with their aoe abilities. pulling a single mob at a time is another way to grind. the two best equipped classes are rogues and feral cat druids. Rogues can kill extremely fast and have the ability to vanish if things get hairy. However, druids can also heal themselves which is worth mentioning....

Dungeons are a great way to level if you are a tank or a healer. But, if you have 4 friends that can quickly finish dungeons, this is a wonderful way to get tons of experience while also getting great gear. This can get boring if you constantly get the same dungeon through the looking for group tool.
PvP is a fun way to level, for some. But unless your faction is winning, you will not get much experience. However, it is worth noting that in one afternoon of playing in battle grounds, I got a quarter level per alterac valley battle during the holiday weekend. The battlegrounds Holiday weekends are the best time to level through pvp because there are tons of people playing them all day and night. the longest I had to wait was 2 minutes for a battleground que.

Another way to level (albeit slowly) while making oodles of money is to level up certain professions. The two professions that can help you level are mining and herbalism. As someone that has leveled tons of characters in many different ways, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that if you are playing on a recruit a friend account, if you are near your triple experience partner while leveling, you also get triple the experience from picking herbs and mining as well, given you are close enough to your friend.

These are the most common ways to level in world of warcraft! Happy Leveling :D
