I'm a dedicated WoW player who play several alts, but I focus mainly on my Warlock. Since I have a lot of characters, on this site it's easiest that I'm simply known as Saga.
I'm a raider, guild officer and altoholic who loves chasing after new mounts and pets.
This site is where I ramble about my adventures and thoughts as I continue playing WoW.

As I got ready to logon to my Paladin today I noticed a funny little visual bug that I hadn’t seen before. Take a good look at this picture. Do you see what I’m talking about?
Let’s take a closer look. Check those arms out! She looks like Popeye, with massive forearms! Maybe it’s just a sign that I’m old and silly – but for some reason I found this hilarious.
See, even Blizzard GMs agree with me that Gnomes are evil! This is irrefutable proof that it must be so!
Have a nice weekend everyone!
For those who perhaps don’t hang around Twitter all the time (I am notoriously bad at it myself), or just missed it, there’s a new “thing” going on. Recently Alas was reminiscing about her time with her gnome clones, and this got a lot of people curious. The US people have all decided to go for this, and I’m left to try and rally the EU version.
So, the clones?
We’re all making gnomes, looking similar, and eventually wearing the same gear. We will lock our experience at level 24 and PvP in that bracket.
The suggestion is that we all pick cloth wearers (since we’re all supposed to look the same), which means Warlock, Priest or Mage. Engineering is advised as being a good PvP profession.
Similar names and similar looks makes for one great army of gnomish doom.
You can read more about the whole thing here. Note though that a lot of it is discussions, and quite a few things US specific. The document is an ongoing thing that you can edit and add to if you wish to bring something to the conversation!
The Quick and Dirty
So, to get to the specifics for the Europeans.
Where: Stormrage (Alliance)
Guild: <Punt This> (GM Liilly)
What: Gnome Clones!
Classes: Priest, Warlock, Mage
Hair Style: Punky (barbershop)
Hair Colour: Any of the three white ones
Skin Tone: Alas went with third from the lightest, but I may have gone a shade darker
Face: Freckled with blue, slanted eyes
Names: Lilli/Lilly and variations thereof
Want to join?
Roll up a gnome clothie on Stormrage-EU and either whisper someone already in the guild, or let me know and I’ll try to catch you online for an invite, since there’s not many of us yet.
If you don’t really have any interest in PvP, you’re of course welcome to join and be social and cheer the rest of us on!
I’ve created the guild, and I’m working on getting some mats and other things sorted for the guild bank. Will try to provide every new gnome with a little bit of starter cash and some bags.
Spread the word, and let’s make our own gnome army in the EU!
I normally don’t write a post just to link to a video, but quite honestly – this was was too good not to link to!
There’s been a lot of discussions in the past about plate bikinis and what not, I think this video really shows a lot of the issues that people have with said bikinis. It’s not about it being a fantasy universe – but the simple logic of; hey if I’m tanking – don’t I want my body to be… you know… protected? Covered in plate?
Ok, so I’ve been nurturing an NCIS addiction these past few months. While every other show was on a summer break I watched NCIS from season one and all the way up to the last episode shown.
I’ve also been playing WoW of course, and as I decided to make myself my very own Goblin (because any Horde, even if just a part-time one like myself, really should have one) I realised that she looks just like Abby!
I swear. This goblin is like the Abby of the WoW-universe. Just a bit more green and all. But you have to admit – she looks just like Abby!
Have you found any characters in WoW that look like a favourite movie star/character?
It always amuses me how some people just aren’t paying attention to even the smallest things.
I’d have excused it with a new player if it wasn’t for the fact that you do actually have to play something to level 55 to even be able to unlock the Death Knight class. Surely by then you have some knowledge of the game?
It’s an old screenshot I found in my folder. I must have forgotten to post it back when I first took it.
I’m sure you haven’t escaped to notice that I’m going on vacation on Friday – if you have you must have missed my subtle hints of VACATION! on Twitter! (I can be really subtle. Really. I promise.)
I’m away for a full week. Can you imagine? A full week! I’ve not had a proper vacation in about four years, so you can understand that I’m really looking forward to this. That, and I’m terrified that I’ll be bored after a few days of sitting down and relaxing. Me and relaxing.. we have a bad history. But I will learn. Even if it kills me. Or well.. relaxes me, I guess.
I leave this Friday (3 June) after work and won’t return until the following Friday. Most likely red as a lobster – but hey, it’ll be worth it!
So, Guest Posts… I’d still love to get some more. If you have a spare moment to write something up, I’m more than happy to post it. I’ll even provide the topic!
Why everyone should be a Warlock!
Why I would choose a Warlock and the kind of Warlock I would be.
Why I would never play a Warlock.
That last one is obviously for those people who simply aren’t evil enough to play a Warlock. (There’s something wrong with you!) It’s for those people who just don’t enjoy feeding dismembered gnomes to their demons (though I can’t understand why!).
If those topics don’t work – there’s always pine cones.
And yes, okay – I guess I can take a topic that doesn’t involve why someone would or wouldn’t want to be a Warlock either. If I have to.
The Warlock Side Wants You.
Note: In case it’s not obvious – this is not a serious post. Taking it as such is done at your own risk and I will not be liable for any Warlock related damages. That said, I still would love your guest posts on any topic you would like!
Blizzard recently confirmed that they’re working on giving us male/female versions of the Warlock pets.
I’m happy to share we actually do have plans for offering players a choice between male and female versions of all warlock demons. This is a task already in our system, though I don’t have a time frame for you at the moment. Other art tasks could always take precedence, but we’re committed to making this happen.
I don’t really have much of an opinion on it, but I have to admit that a male Incubus (female version of Succubus) would be a lot of fun. Especially to get to use Seduction on all of the homophobes that piped up on the forums about it. (Seriously, I had no idea there were that many!)
It’s quite amazing to see the response of some of the community. Some people even said that they would throw up all over their keyboard if they were seduces by a male demon. Seriously? It’s a game, and you don’t see any women running around screaming because they get seduced by the Succubus.
Anyway, I decided to make my own suggestion to Blizzard about what the new male/female forms for demons should be. If I was better at Photoshop it’d look better, but sadly this is the best I can do. Originals are included for reference. (Click for larger picture.)
I would like to petition Blizzard to use Vin Diesel as the model for the Incubus – and his voice. It would be awesome, don’t you think? Vin Diesel is a geek deep inside, and has even admitted to playing WoW. I bet he’d be up for it!
What are your ideas for the male/female demons?
Try leveling like this!!!
Sorry about the bad quality photos, they’re taken with my mobile (the only thing I had at hand).
Happy leveling, everyone!
- Tell the Mage to give the Warlock Focus Magic. They don’t want to? Make them!
- Allow the Warlock to Soul Stone herself (cause she’s the most important person in the raid).
- Make sure that the Warlock is summoned to the raid; not the other way around!
- Let the Warlock have the best position on boss fights so she doesn’t have to move, moving messes up her rotation and she doesn’t like this!
- Offer every piece of cloth loot and caster weapon to the Warlock first, if she declines the other casters may roll/bid.
