Day 15 - Best Tier Set

Mage in Frostfire Set by Yaorenwo (???)

But of course I would pick the Frostfire Regalia to be my favorite tier set of all time! I am so glad that I finally got a hold of all the pieces of it to have this set in my transmog collection. If you haven't already, you can read my post about that here.

While Tier 3 is my all time favorite set, here are two of my other favorites. I also like the Tempest Regalia. There is something really regal about the look of that entire set. It looks exceptionally great with either the Exodar Life-Staff or Staff of the Redeemer. My most recent favorite mage tier would have to be the Regalia of the Burning Scroll. I liked the green on the LFR version the most since it's an odd color for a mage set to be. I'll be honest though, I find the the Burning Crusades had some of the best tier sets ever made in game. If Warlords of Draenor is a blast form the past, I'm hoping to see some new and sexy looking pieces of gear with actual COLORS again!

Day 14 - Battleground

"Stormpike filth!? In my keep! Slay them all!"
- Drek'Thar of the Frostwolf Clan

I will be the first to admit that I like to have no part in PvP at all. I don't play on a PvP server, I don't really care for it, and I try to avoid it at all cost. However, the first battleground that I ever stepped foot into was Alterac Valley, so it holds a special place in my heart. In my battlegroup, the Horde hardly ever win. It just usually ends up being a "turtle" match until the Alliance either get tired of killing Horde, or they rush and defeat Drek'Thar. No one seems to understand that their is actually a point to the battleground other than trying to get to Vanndar as fast as possible.

Usually I was stuck with one or maybe two other people trying to cap a tower while the entire Alliance "back cap" team would come in and clear us out. I do remember rage quitting quite a few times just because of the stupidity of people standing outside of Van's room twiddling their thumbs. I have no idea if it has changed or if it has gotten worse. I have no desire to find out either... I will just keep those PvP memories and look back fondly on them.

Day 13 - Favorite Lore

"They do not die; they do not live. They are outside the cycle."

The Old Gods of Azeroth have always intrigued me. Since I first set foot in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj and heard C'thun utter the terrifying words, "Death is close", I've been intrigued by them. As mysterious and strange as they are, I like to speculate about their existence and throw out theories on how they could be incorporated into an expansion. So far, the known Old Gods of Azeroth are C'thun, Yogg-Saron, Y'shaarj, and N'zoth even though his location is still unknown. I had a great post that talked about him when everyone was speculating the next expansion being The Dark Below.

They have driven some of the most powerful people to madness and have released countless horrors into Azeroth. While the Old Gods still remain a mysterious entity in the Warcraft universe, it is rumored that they once ruled over a land called the Black Empire. There is also speculation that they have more than the 4 that we know about already and even some fan theories that go as far as to speculate the whole of Azeroth is an Old God itself. I think it's the fact that we don't know much about these that draws me to read more about them. They are definitely my top favorite lore of Azeroth!

Day 12 - Non-Playable Race You Wish Was Playable

Ever since I first set my eyes on these little guys, I always wondered what it would be like to play one. A Murloc warrior... a Murloc mage... a Murloc rogue... just think of the possibilities! I'm being extremely serious about this too. This image has been around since as long as I can remember. When I first saw it, I actually thought it was a prototype for a race that may have been added during the Burning Crusades. Sadly, it was just a fan mock up. :(

Murlocs and what I think is their long distant cousins, the Oracles, have always held a special place in my heart. I loved the quest in Sholazar Basin where you had to help the Oracles out. I was so excited when you got an Oracle orphan for Children's Week. He's still one of my top mini pets to this day! If Blizzard were to add the Murloc race to WoW, I wouldn't hesitate in creating a character at all! Look out everyone, Murglegana may be is coming!

Also, if you haven't played these, I suggest you try out Murloc RPG. It's basically exactly what you think it is. I have these all bookmarked and they have provided me tons of fun over the years!

Day 11 - Class You Want To Play

Orc Shaman by Vandrell
I'm the kind of person who gets these extreme urges to level up certain classes pertaining to what is popular during the expansions. For Warlords of Draenor, I had instantly thought about boosting a Shaman. I was going to make her a Dwarf female since I had the perfect name picked out, but that changed when I saw the Orc female models. To me, an Orc female Shaman is exactly what I think of when I think about the Frostwolf Clan. So now my little Orc Shaman waits for her turn to be leveled since she will not be my boost.

Why did I pick a Shaman though? Well, it's the last caster class I have yet to level up. I liked reading about the Shamanistic ways of the Orcs of Draenor in Rise of the Horde. I really enjoy the way their gear and spells look, and other than that I can't say much since I never played one yet. I have to tell you though, I will have an exciting journey with her, and I might grow to really enjoy this class.
