If you’ve never heard of IntPiPoMo before, check out this post here at Gamer Girl Confessions. There’s prizes, and I love participating every year and showing off some awesome screenshots and pictures. Most of my posts come with a screenshot, but I’ll be adding 50 throughout the month tagged properly – so be on the lookout!

One thing I’ve always liked about World of Warcraft is just how much stuff there is to do. I haven’t really felt like playing my max level characters, so I returned to some of my alts, and I’ve been working on older achievements. One that I never completed but that I always said I would, is the Loremaster quests. It requires questing in all of the places, and there’s a lot of older zones that I just didn’t get around to.
Arathi Highlands and Badlands are now done on the list, and I can’t remember what’s next but I’m looking forward to it. The quests are far below my characters level, but I don’t mind. I get some coin, some items I can transmute, and a bit of experience. The best part is that the ordeal is incredibly relaxing and not very time intensive so I can do a little bit here and there in between other things and still complete a zone throughout the day and feel like I’ve got something in game accomplished.
Anyone else enjoy doing these older achievements in their spare time? Let me know in comments!
Ever feel like some days it doesn’t matter what you do, RNG (random number generator, for those not familiar) just has it in for you? You can open a bunch of loot boxes and get absolutely nothing, kill a boss and get the worst drop, and enter a dungeon where the mobs are all dead except for the one encounter you’re already killed for the week and it would just be another day.
This is my live in video games.
I have absolute horrible luck when it comes to RNG. I’ve written about it before regarding Wurm Unlimited and how it was only thanks to the extreme kindness of friends that I was able to break my losing streak.
I have that exact same luck in World of Warcraft. As my motto goes, if I didn’t have bad luck I’d have no luck at all.
I’ve been doing the horseman fight most of the week and the single time I got any sort of drop at all it was an ilevel 880 (still an upgrade for me) sword.
I’m a priest.
So thank you RNG. It’s just another day.
You may have noticed that the address to my website has changed! That’s right, after 11 years and a lot of humming and hawing back and forth, I have decided that I have outgrown the “MmoQuests” portion of my blog, and I am rebranding! It’s pretty exciting.
What does this mean?
For now, when you go to mmoquests.com you’ll be redirected here, to nomadicgamerseh.com. Same blog, same posts, different name.
Why this name?
10 years ago I created nomadicgamers.wordpress.com and I had paid for a few different URLs for it but because that was a long time ago (and I had no idea what I was doing) I didn’t have the money to keep them running. The nomadic has always applied to me, and even more so these past few years. I also wanted a name that I could expand to include my family. We’re all gamers, and as my little one grows up I’d like to get him involved too (if he wants to, of course). My husband has ideas of running tabletop games, and I wanted a space and a brand name we all feel comfortable posting under. We’re Canadian, so the “eh” portion of things just fit.
Obviously it will take me a bit to get truly settled. I have to change links on my profiles (I’m staying Stargrace, nothing changing there) I need a new logo (I am woefully inept at designing them even though I know what I would like, the one that’s up is a temporary botch of the one Belghast designed for me), and I need an avatar (or three) designed. I am hiring people for all of this, and that takes time, too. In the meanwhile, if you have mmoquests linked anywhere you might want to update it to the new site. I have big plans(tm) eventually(tm) soon(tm) but for now we’re taking baby steps.
For those who have been reading my blog for so many years – thank you. I hope you’ll continue to read my posts as time goes on, and I hope you’re as excited as I am about the next chapter.
