Now I just got to figure out how to get to Dalaran.

10-01-2009, 05:37 AM
Grtz Nell !

And great to talk to you online last night :)

10-01-2009, 05:52 AM
It's all gone through! Found myself stood in thunder bluff wondering why I'd deliberately gone from being a svelte, Nelf druid into a huge bloody great cow and if I'd rolled a female tauren I'd at least be able to see past the shoulders and oh my, the tail's going from left to right, right to left, left to right. Left, to Right, right, to left...zzzzzzz

And then I discovered that /moo does indeed make me moo and everything was good again.

And then it took me about a week to get to dalaran. In my defence it's hard work when you don't know what the flightpoints look like or where they are. I had to circuit the place in Borean Tundra 2-3 times then I gave up and flew up to fizzlecrank's airstrip, got flagged PvP and chased all over the place before I finally found a flight point to Dalaran (thank god all those do appear to have carried over too).

hehe brilliant Nell.

i'll see you online later then our newest female tauren druid :) And then i can throw you an invite and we can start doing some heroics etc with our new healer :)

so it was much quicker than they had indicated to you last nite.....

do they transfer everything else across.....all gear has become the horde equivalent ? all items in your bank ? all your rep standings ? etc etc

Is your char called Nellie ?

indeed /moo rocks !

10-01-2009, 07:19 AM
Male this time. All my ally chars are female on the basis that if you're going to look at something's arse for several hours at a time it might as well be female. As a tauren though? A cow's arse is a cow's arse however you look at it. :D

TehNellie (bit wierd changing the name of the char too, been Nothernellie for years, tehnellie is the hunter) is char's name :eek:

Heroics? I had a look at the guild gear level and I reckon we should be going for the 8 man or less achievements :D

With regards to the transfer it was pretty painless the realm transfer took a couple of hours, the faction transfer was done in minutes. All your Rep transfers across, exactly to where depends on the race your transfer from and to I think but if you're exalted with Darnassus you become exalted with Thunder Bluff. Think you lose anything on the AH and theres a 20k gold limit on a level 80. Worst part is that it's character by character as I'd love to have my bank alt, DE alt and the hunter for that matter available to use but it's too expensive to move en masse.

All your flight points transfer over too so you aren't stranded with nothing when you arrive.

Achievement whores watch out, think it strips you of your achievements although I did get the equivalent Horde to the bear mount (kill all the NPC leaders in the cities?) when I logged back in, everything else, looking at the armoury is gone.

10-01-2009, 08:07 AM
ok will catch up to inv u later on....

20k limit ! that sucks if you have cash !

yeah we got a good 10 man start a few weeks with people keen. then for no apparent reason it all stopped and we struggled for signups.

couple people been ill recently but also a couple saying getting fed up of wow and 1 or 2 mentioned Aion ? Our MT is not around much atm (fed up with wow) but we do have a couple others luckily who can do the job.

we just need to get back into the swing of actually getting people to commit to a raid and be there.

i want to do Ony. I want my Antlers !

We did part 1 of 10 man Naax on 8 man a few weeks back. And i believe they did 8 man OS10, either no or 1D, maybe both.

Atm getting EoT's has been interesting people for multiple daily runs for various mains and alts. And Toc H still gives some people a gear upgrade.

10-01-2009, 08:23 AM
Well I'd like to settle in and get to know people a bit, but more than happy to help out on that front if you like. Got a vent server we can use if needed and don't mind trying to sort out a forum page if people want it.

Been the time of year when hard to get people into raids, especially as small casual guild. Once the weather turns rubbish and dark again people tend to be more inclined to commit a couple of hours to running a raid :)

Only tried Ony once in a pug and despite 30k DPS we never got her down so want my revenge on her too :)

10-01-2009, 08:35 AM
yeah no probelm.

hopefully you'll be up for some heroics with us to get to know us.

are you dual spec and if so were u also an oomkin ?

hopefully we will get some raids in as oct progresses. have to say i gave up putting stuff in the calendar so see if anyone else does....

forum page/s could be good...although it can be difficult to get people to read them i've found in the past....

10-01-2009, 08:39 AM
Let's see how it goes for a bit. Always happy to do eric runs although I'm not normally around a huge amount on Thursday nights.

Am Dual spec, still hootkin on the alt spec. vendored all the tank/feral DPS gear a few days back so would need a major gearing excercise to go off hootkin but don't mind doing it if there's a gap on that front.

10-01-2009, 10:37 AM
Another Alliance goes to the dark side.../mourn.

If my realm friends wouldn't hate me forever...I think I would too...=) Grats Nell

Oh...and I just don't think I could watch my beloved toon scratching its butt all day long...>.>

10-01-2009, 10:59 AM
just type /moo every 10 seconds, problem solved :D

It is very very wierd at the moment, changing race and gender. I'm not sure Iactually like being a cow yet, but there's enough different druid forms to take my mind off it.


10-01-2009, 11:15 AM
kewl Nell. see you later.

hehe Des, Nell is joining the right side at last :)

10-01-2009, 11:33 AM
CursÚd Horde!

Don't think for a second Des hasn't been considering the delectable sounding server/faction Xfer. Skwid has me nearly sold on the idea...except...I <3 my guildies......

I <3 my guildies and they don't want to be hordelings =*(


10-01-2009, 11:52 AM
heheh, having a good guild helps, few shenanigans in my old one and I just wanted a clean break rather than abandon the game completely so I thought I'd go tap up Khel and see if he had room in the field for another cow :D

10-01-2009, 12:02 PM
indeed it was a big surprise when i got a /w last from Nellie from the Grove ! lol

so we welcome another druid to the fold :)

10-01-2009, 12:25 PM
am online for a bit longer Nell...then a break then back on around 7:45.

10-01-2009, 12:27 PM
LOL Nellie!

And I think it'd be an easier move if the guild wasn't as fun as it is. Suffice to say there's a LOT of personality in our guild and I <3 that. Never a dull moment. As far as overall faction maturity level- it leaves a little to be desired...We'll see though.

10-01-2009, 12:51 PM
A couple of weeks ago I'd have agreed with you Des. Unfortunately a few things changed. I won't bore you with the details but I forced the issue and after a week of simmering unpleasantness decided to call it a day. I didn't want to stay on the same realm and figured what Khel had described on here sounded like what I was looking for, I've enjoyed chewing the cud(sorry, I'll stop with the cow themed jokes) over all things Druid so dropped over to say hello and sound out the possibility of a new home.

Still at work at the moment, but will try and manage a flying visit around 8ish, otherwise probably on all night tomorrow.

10-01-2009, 01:46 PM
It seems to be the way things go, in the wonderful world of WoW, unfortunately.

Had faction Xfers been available during the fallout with my previous guild, I'd have jumped on it w/o missing a beat. They weren't, and rather than abandon the friends I've made on server...husband convinced me to stay and just start over with a new guild family. So far, so good. There are a few bumps in the road here and there, but nothing I can't mangle into submission so far. *knocks on wood*

I definitely understand the move =) I'd just miss my Dramatanian friends...

10-01-2009, 03:16 PM
yeah good to have you with us Nell.

you can always move if stuff goes wrong in the future Des.

Don't think for a second Des hasn't been considering the delectable sounding server/faction Xfer. Skwid has me nearly sold on the idea...except...I <3 my guildies......

I <3 my guildies and they don't want to be hordelings =*(
from the little tree on the Des' other shoulder... "Don't forget about Turalyon.... you wouldn't have to be a cow...."

In all honesty though, I miss my tauren druids. If I didn't have so much invested in Rhus, I'd play them more.
My first toon was a Tauren Druid on Ysera, where he still sits to this very day gathering dust and telling stories to the calves about the good old days. Y'know, when it was uphill both ways to Thunderbluff, and always snowing...

10-02-2009, 10:02 AM
Des was my first/only toon for almost all of 55 levels. It wasn't until around level 55 that I started my little warrior. I didn't fall in love with the class though, and went back to druiding.

I haven't forgotten about you Raging, and should things continue as they did last night- a server xfer might become a more realistic choice for this little bear. =)

10-02-2009, 01:23 PM
ohh wot happened last nite Des ?

i feel a new thread required on your blog for it :)

10-02-2009, 01:38 PM
lol I don't know if I can post it on a public forum, even the blog. I think it might cause some additional issues for me in my beloved Dramatan. XD lol

Actually, I may post it. As frustrating as the situation was, I was loling about it all night long =) Let me finish up a few things here and I'll start writing it.

10-02-2009, 02:35 PM
welcome to the dark side!

enjoy the cookies ;)

10-02-2009, 03:32 PM
hush skw.....i aint told nellie anything about cookies yet ! :o

10-05-2009, 06:13 AM
Nom nom nom. Too late :D

10-05-2009, 12:14 PM
=( I want cookies too!


I think another good sales pitch from Skwid and I might turn into a moo myself...

10-05-2009, 12:46 PM
hehe more cookies needed skw !

10-05-2009, 01:25 PM
You hordies have all the fun =(

10-05-2009, 06:33 PM
everyone knows horde ftw Des.

10-06-2009, 08:51 AM
Yes, but you do have to admit, Khel...the Alliance got a WHOLE lot cooler when I joined it...=D

Nothing like a humble druid to make your day complete, right? >.>

10-06-2009, 11:13 AM
A what druid? hum-bul? I understand not what this word means :D

10-06-2009, 11:27 AM

I'm just saying that as long as I'm alliance, they have a certain amount of...WIN.

If I come to Horde, then ALL if the Win will be in the horde. It'll throw off the entire balance of the universe...


10-06-2009, 12:37 PM
keep taking the tablets Des !


10-06-2009, 12:42 PM
=) You all know I'm just playin'.

Skwid needs to work harder on his sales pitch so he can bring some Des to his server.


10-06-2009, 05:58 PM
hmm maybe donuts as well as cookies Des would do the trick ?

10-07-2009, 09:20 AM
I was curious about the horde side of things. So I rolled two hordies last night. A Blood Elf Priest and a Tauren Druid.

I think my tauren druid (Lolkodo, if you were wondering her name) going to end up being a side project. My guild has decided that they want to try and progress through more content...that means endless heroic grinds to get gear/emblems for those that are interested and trying to coordinate it so it doesn't end like it did last weekend.

10-07-2009, 12:19 PM
GL Des, you have the best class/race combo now with your horde druid :)

10-07-2009, 12:59 PM
I miss shadowmeld =( War stomp hasn't won my heart yet.

/moo is kind of fun...but I get twitchy when I'm on the new horde server because I miss my friends on Durotan. *wipes a tear*

10-25-2009, 12:33 PM
Hey Nell - not seen u online for a while now ?
