National Red Nose’s Armor Day

Posted October 14th, 2016 by Miss Mediocre


Please Note : We were told today that new Boss Gear Boxes are being issued to those of us who received the Red Nose’s Armor since it was totally a glitch, Yay!

Yesterday, National Red Nose’s Armor Day, was the worst day I’ve had all month! Maybe my life’s too easy or maybe I just get into games too much, but either way when I logged in at 8:01pm to claim my Boss Defense Gear Box, after logging in (or re-logging) at the same time for 30 consecutive days, the disappointment I was greeted with was pretty deflating. I can’t say there’s anything else I did every single day this month (other than brush my teeth, eat and sleep anyway), so for me to actually do a specific thing every single day was a pretty big deal! I mean, even if I’d known at the end of the month I was guaranteed to only get Red Nose’s Armor, I still would have done it. The rewards along the way were cool and I’ve been playing this game like crazy anyway, but what I can’t stand is giving your player base that kind of false hope! A lot of people in general chat were saying it was like Kakao was just giving them a big middle finger, especially after Wednesday’s extended (and then extended) maintenance downtime.

Now I don’t know if the fact that everyone on my server (and every other NA server that I’d heard of) got the same disappointing piece of gear on purpose or if perhaps this was some kind of glitch. The Boss Defense Gear Box definitely claims to contain one of the following : Tree Spirit’s Armor, Giath’s Helmet, Red Nose’s Armor, Bheg’s Gloves or Muskan’s Shoes. It says in the tooltip, “Right-click to randomly obtain one of the following”. Since the box only contained the least rare and most unwanted piece of gear, I think that’s some pretty serious false advertising.

It’s extra painful for those players who have been playing since launch and are still missing one of the super rare pieces of this gear that isn’t even available on the Auction House unless you pre-order it for a crazy amount, like Bheg’s Gloves. This box was like a shiny beacon of hope for players who have opened hundreds of Bheg bundles but just haven’t had that RNG on their side in the past!

The BDO social media sites have been silent despite the many tweets about National Red Nose Day and questions about whether this was intentional or a bug. The community is not happy and this time I’m right there with them. I’m worried when they do get around to answering their community, they’ll just play the RNG card. If I’d witnessed just one single player receive anything other than Red Nose’s Armor, I’d be accepting of that defense, but I did not. Now Red Nose’s Armor is down to a disappointing 11,000,000 on my server.

Let’s be honest, gamers are usually pretty harsh and unforgiving. Kakao should be aware of this after loosing half of their player base earlier in the year when they made a lot of changes regarding their “Pay-to-Win” system. To have a game just full out lie to their community like this is something I’ve never actually experienced before (and I’ve played quite a few MMOs). It’s going to be difficult because so many people have already opened and sold (or deleted like in this video, lol) their Red Nose’s Armor, but I really hope they can figure out a way to correct this falsehood and turn National Red Nose’s Armor Day into a funny memory instead of the day so many people stopped trusting this company!

Makeovers and Overs and Overs in BDO

Posted October 5th, 2016 by Miss Mediocre

I have been in Black Desert Online for 40 days now. I’ve had a Value Pack on my account the whole time, which lets me change my character’s appearance whenever I want. I find if I’m waiting around for something or just depending on my mood, I end up in the “Beauty” tab, giving myself a makeover. Because the characters are just so awesome looking and the character customization is so in depth, I have a lot of fun with it! I was looking through my screenshots as I wait for server maintenance to be finished however and I realized just how many makeovers my poor Sorceress has been through now. 7! So I wanted to share them on here. You may notice the face changes pretty drastically around #4 and that’s because that was when I got a new graphics card for my pc!


No doubt there will be more makeovers in the future, (or maybe I should just make more characters, lol) but either way I’m sure I’ll end up posting them on here!

My Black Desert Online Home

Posted September 30th, 2016 by Miss Mediocre

I have been loving Black Desert Online’s player housing system since I started playing. There are houses that you can buy all over the place, from mansions in major cities to small cottages on the tops of mountains. I spent a long time looking through houses in Heidel, which is my favorite town so far. I really wanted something that had 2 stories to work with but that I could actually compete for Rank 1 in. A lot of the houses that are Rank 1 look more like fancy item storerooms than a player’s home. Unfortunately people just fill their houses with the cheapest/highest interior point items a lot of the time so that they can gain access to the investment banking, which is only available if you have a Rank 1 house in a major city.

I did manage to find a house I liked eventually that didn’t have a crazy Rank 1 score to compete with. It was nice because I didn’t have to buy items from the Pearl Shop to make my house the way I wanted. There are actually a lot of really nice looking furnishings available from in game vendors and the auction house, plus I got a fancy chair for playing 100 hours or so and you get a bed, bookcase, couch and dinning table for buying the “Explorers Package” version of the game (which my friend who gave me his account had).

Anyway I wanted to share my little walk through video of my place! It’s #8.5 in Heidel and I think it’s a good example of how you can fit a lot of furnishings into a pretty small space, while still having it feel cozy. Finally those interior design courses are paying off, lol.

(Sorry there’s no audio, I tried to add a voice over explanation but it didn’t save with the video!)


Is Black Desert Online Pay to Win?

Posted September 28th, 2016 by Miss Mediocre



Let me begin my post by declaring my side on this; currently I would not consider Black Desert Online to be a pay to win game. You can definitely pay for convenience but in no way are you required to purchase things from the in game Pearl Shop in order to have a rich and successful BDO experience.

It’s very rare these days to come across a MMORPG that doesn’t have some kind of cash shop set up. Elderscrolls, Rift, SWTOR and even World of Warcraft, which has that $20/month subscription fee on top of it’s cash shop items, has become far more “pay to win” than Black Desert Online is in my opinion. In WoW you can now purchase those game time tokens from their shop and then sell them for a good chunk of gold in game. That’s a pretty straight forward way to buy gold with real money through Blizzard and obviously the more gold you have, the better items you can buy. In WoW you can also buy level 100 character boosts, which I think is a very pay to win feature that BDO does not have.

In Black Desert Online there is no monthly subscription fee. You can purchase Value Packs from the Pearl Shop which are what I’d consider to be the equivalent of most game’s subscription bonuses. With the Value Pack you get more money from Auctions House sales, you can change your appearance as much as you want and you get more inventory/bank space. These aren’t necessary to enjoy the game, but they certainly help. The nice part about the Value Packs is that instead of spending $15USD on this item every 30 days, you can just buy it from the in game auction house for the reasonable price of 9 million silver (and I effortlessly make that amount every 2 days just going about my BDO business). You have to be quick if you’re buying the Value Packs in game since people do buy them up fast, but hundreds of them are posted every month so your chances of getting one are good if you keep an eye out. You can always stock up and keep the extras in your inventory until you need them too.

It’s like that for pets and outfits as well in Black Desert Online. You could spend $21USD on a cool armor set or you can just buy it in game for about 20 million silver. The only things you really have to pay real money for are the costumes, which are simply convenience items that make you cook faster, train horses faster, hides your name during PvP, increases your swimming and fishing speeds, etc. You can also buy items that make it easier to enhance your weapons, but you can just buy already enhanced weapons from the Auction House, so again, it’s not something that is a necessity. I feel the people behind Black Desert Online (the NA version anyway) have done a great job making sure that anything you really need to play the game effectively, is available to you for in game silver.

I’m not a premium player by any means. If you wanted, you could invest $10,000 into the game, sell a bunch of costumes on the Auction House and then buy yourself the best weapons and armor, but I believe that’d be a waste of your money and you’d still have to level your character yourself. Making silver is pretty easy and there are so many different ways to do so. You can basically just leave your character AFK fishing while you sleep at night and bring in a few million while you’re not even playing. As I mentioned in my first post about BDO I’m only a little over a month into the game and still reasonably noobish but I already have 225,000,000 silver. I don’t buy anything with real money to sell for in game silver, I just found myself a nice little niche market and a few good grinding spots and I’m already in the top ranking (A) for wealth on my server.

Since there are no subscription fees, I just allow myself to spend a subscription fee equivalent ($20USD) every month on Pearl Shop items. I really liked a pet that was on sale and I hadn’t been able to get it on the Auction House, so I bought it (but I do have 3 others that I just bought with silver). Also I have decided that horse breeding and training is my “thing” so I just invested in a costume that will let me train horses 20% faster. But that’s all I’ve felt the urge to buy and neither of those things were needed for me to be good at the game.

You get something called loyalty points for logging in every day (and lots of bonus loyalty points from other things as well). A lot of the convenience items like carrying weight increases and value pack bonuses can be purchased with those points instead of spending real money too.

The Pearl to USD exchange rate is roughly $20 = 20,000,000 silver. Making money has not been my focus in BDO yet at all, I’ve just been leveling and learning and have only started making a conscious effort to increase my in game wealth this week because I want to save up for the best Awakening weapon that I can get. I already have 225,000,000 silver though as I mentioned, which if you wanted to buy that amount of silver with real money, would be the equivalent of spending $225 USD. Since it’s that easy to make silver in game, but that expensive to buy with real money, I really don’t think paying that much would be worth it! I feel like the people who are the “Premium Players” either just have way more expendable income than me and are totally okay with dropping $1000 on an in-game weapon, or they really haven’t taken the time to work out the details!

If you wanted to purchase a copy of Black Desert Online and then never invest another dollar into it, that would be entirely possible and I don’t believe it’d put you at any disadvantage either! On the other hand, if someone wanted a pay to win game, they’d need to invest a huge amount in order to make BDO actually feel that way, and I’m talking thousands! So that’s why after 35 days, even though I have nothing against pay to win games, I don’t feel like BDO is pay to win. Even as a pretty-much-broke-starving-artist-gamer, I’m still able to enjoy my Black Desert Online experience fully!

Black Desert Online

Posted September 28th, 2016 by Miss Mediocre



It has been a long time since I’ve felt inspired to start game blogging again. It’s been over 3 years since I’ve done any kind of regular blogging or regular MMO playing really, but 35 days ago my little brother convinced me to check out Black Desert Online. Almost 500 hours of play time later, I feel like it’s safe to say that I am hooked and I once again feel the urge to share my gaming experiences!

I came into BDO not knowing much about it at all. I’d seen the character creation hype back in February of this year right before the North American version of the game was released and I knew that it was a fantasy MMORPG, but that was pretty much it. So far the only thing I can compare my time in BDO to is my early vanilla WoW days. It is very different from WoW in a lot of ways, but similar in terms of the difficulty and immersion I experienced when I jumped into Azeroth back in 2004. Since then WoW has become pretty fool-proof/casual friendly but Black Desert Online is not an easy MMO by any means. There’s a noticeable lack of hand-holding and direction and that can be pretty overwhelming at first, but once you get your bearings and figure out the basics, you can start to appreciate just how vast and interesting the world is.

BDO is also not a story-driven MMORPG, which was a change for me. There are main story quests and characters, but they quickly faded in significance to me as I discovered things like World Bosses, gardening, horse breeding and of course one of my favorite things in MMOs; the auction house. The game reminds me a lot of Aincrad from the anime Sword Art Online actually because you can just be a chef or fisherman or crafter if that’s how you choose to play.

I was definitely hesitant to jump into another MMORPG. So far I’ve seriously gotten into playing WoW, Elderscrolls Online, RIFT and SWTOR, but eventually lost interest in all of them. I’ve tried and not really enjoyed countless others and I’d assumed my MMO days were behind me, but I am so glad that I was wrong! I’m not claiming that my interest in BDO won’t fade eventually (I’m actually hoping it does at least a little so I can get some things done IRL, lol), but I feel like if a game can hold my interest for 300+ hours, it’s a winner!

The only thing I’d definitely recommend if you’re going to give Black Desert Online a try is either start playing with someone you know and be ready to look things up or immediately find yourself a really patient and helpful guild. My friend (who is a 11+ year off and on WoW player like myself) tried the game by himself right after it was released and within a few hours was so lost and frustrated that he never went back (and actually gave me his account because he never wanted to play again). A lot of people (like my friend) don’t really want their games to be a challenge. He didn’t like Dark Souls games either for this reason and that’s understandable. I really enjoy challenging games however, have a lot of free time to put into them and had my little brother to answer my 6789 questions as I was starting out. If you go in expecting a really unique and challenging experience though, I feel like you’ll be a lot less likely to get overwhelmed!

The last thing I want to touch on in my first (of hopefully many) Black Desert Online blog posts is just how BEAUTIFUL the game is! The character creation is amazingly detailed, which anyone who has read any of my past posts will know is a pretty big deal to me. It took me almost 2 hours to make my first character, lol. The environment is also really breathtaking and there have been so many times as I’ve been running around questing and exploring that I’ve just stopped to admire the very detailed scenery!



There’s lots more I want to write about but I’ll save that for future posts! Basically if you enjoy a challenge and have been craving a different kind of MMORPG, try Black Desert Online! And if you don’t have anyone to try it with, roll your character on the Orwen server and come play with me! E-mail me at and I’ll give you my character info!

Werewolf Quest As A Low Level – ESO

Posted April 17th, 2014 by Miss Mediocre

Getting to Reaper’s March

I was pretty excited when I found out there were Werewolves and Vampires in ESO. Originally I’d decided that my main character, Lauriella would someday be a vampire but the more I thought about it, I changed my mind. She’s a Nord Dragonknight and becoming a Werewolf seemed like a better fit for her. I’m only level 25 but I used the “teleport to player” option to get to Reaper’s March early by checking out the roster of the big trading guild that I’m part of and finding someone of level who was questing there.

I’d looked everywhere online for some information about werewolf spawn locations and times but I couldn’t really find any solid leads. There were a couple of maps that gave me a rough idea but basically I just rode around on the eastern side of the map until I found a group of people. I’d hang with them until I got bored, then I’d continue my search. I did this for a few nights, one was a full moon in game which some people seemed to think would guarantee a werewolf spawn, but there was nothing.

Where I Was Bitten

I’d more or less given up on finding a werewolf, especially at my level, so I went back to questing for a couple days. I logged on Wednesday evening around 10pm EST however and thought, maybe I’d just check one more time. I ported over to Reaper’s March and general chat was going crazy. Everyone was talking about seeing werewolves and it really didn’t sound like trolls trolling (like it had the other nights). I started cycling through the spawn locations I’d been hanging out at over the past few nights when I saw someone call out that there were some werewolves over by the Dune Wayshrine. I was pretty close by so I checked it out and sure enough there were two big werewolves beating on some player. He ran away and reset them just as I got there so I followed them and hit one when they got back to their spawn point, which was just South West of the Dune Wayshrine. There were lots of players around but they let them hit me for a good 40 seconds before someone taunted them off me. I checked my character screen and saw I had the “Sanies Lupinus” active effect, which said I’d been scratched by a werewolf.

Where To Get The Quest

I was so happy but as I stood there watching people eventually kill the werewolves I realized I had no idea what to do next. I again tried to find out online. There were a few quest guides but I was only level 25 and hadn’t discovered many Wayshrines, so when they said which one to go to, I had no idea where that was! I started just running around to all the areas of the map I hadn’t been to yet and eventually found the Rawl’kha Wayshrine right in the middle of the map. Sure enough as soon as I ran up to it I saw the NPC with the starting quest for me. She informed me I could either cure the disease at the temple or head up north to talk to the pack master. Obviously I made my way to the packmaster!

Leveling Up To Complete The Quest

If you’re working on this quest or the quest to become a Bloodfiend, they are definitely easier to complete the higher your level! Your bite/scratch will not go away once you start your respective quest line so if you’re having trouble completing it, do some fast leveling and then come back to it! If you’re anxious to start howling at the moon or drinking the blood of your foes and want to know how to level as fast as possible, you can Click Here and check out the best leveling guides currently available for ESO!

The Werewolf Quest

The quest was red for me but I knew I’d read about people as low as level 15 becoming werewolves so I wasn’t concerned. I went through a portal, Hircine changed me into a werewolf and told me to go take down suitable prey for my brethren to eat. I ran around the instanced zone which is one of the ones you have to do solo. The mobs were level 42 and you only have 2 werewolf abilities to work with, a pounce and a fear, so it was difficult surviving the area at level 25. I found a special troll that was level 42 and attacked it. It basically two-shotted me so once again I went online to try to figure out what I was doing wrong. I found a post that explained that there were actually 3 different bosses that could spawn and to reset the instance you just had to leave through the portal, wait 5 minutes and then zone back in. I tried this and was lucky enough to get the boss they suggested taking on if you were under-leveled, The mammoth. I tried to stay behind him like the post suggested but he still kicked my butt. Then I read that you could actually fight the mob before you’re transformed into a werewolf, then sprint back, get turned, go back to the corpse and complete the quest. I tried this, fought the mammoth for 10 minutes as myself, killed it and by the time I got back to the body as the werewolf, it disappeared right in front of me! I tried again, killed it after 10 minutes, made better time getting back and actually howled at the corpse like the quest wanted me to. A bunch of werewolves came out, ate the body and nothing happened. Apparently they fixed the quest so this method no longer worked.

Fight The Snow Troll

I worked on the quest for a few more hours. I fought the snake, tried the big troll again, tried the mammoth a few more times and then finally I zoned in and couldn’t find any of the three bosses I’d been bashing my furry head against for hours. After a bit of exploring I came across a little snow troll that I didn’t even realize could spawn. He was SO EASY to kill, I didn’t even need to drink a potion. Turns out this little guy is in there for us low level werewolves to fight, but none of the posts I’d read online had mentioned anything about him. He’s to the right in the pile of bones if you’re running into the zone from the shrine. I howled at the corpse, my werewolf buddies came and ate him, then I bowed to the alter of Hircine and bam, now I’m a full blooded level 25 werewolf!

I just wanted to share my story in case anyone else out there is in the same boat as I was! There was so much information I couldn’t find and even more that was incorrect so maybe this can help someone else become a member of ESO’s Team Jacob, lol.

Playing Elder Scrolls Online

Posted April 2nd, 2014 by Miss Mediocre

I have basically been looking forward to the release of this game for 12 years. From the moment I stepped into Morrowind back on the original xbox all I wanted was to be able to traverse Tamriel with fellow adventurers! And now it’s finally here. Of course I opted in for the early access pre-order since I wasn’t fortunate enough to get into the beta and had been dying to give the game a try. It’s really the first game I have been excited about since the Wrath of the Lich King expansion for WoW back in 2007.

I have put in about 20 play hours so far, trying out the Dragon Knight and Templar classes, and thankfully it has yet to disappoint! It really feels like I’m playing Skyrim but just suddenly there are other people in my game. The combat is interesting, a combination of mouse clicks, abilities, dodging and blocking which makes it so your character can really handle herself once you get the hang of it. The characters look awesome and the customization reminded me a lot of Rift but better. As always, I wish there were more choices for hair, make up, etc, but I don’t know if anything has ever actually been up to my standards for that, but oh man, you should see my posterior dimensions!

Customizing your character’s spec is pretty in depth and I’m hoping there’s a way to respec eventually because the more I play and understand stuff, the more I want to change how I’ve spent my previous points! There’s three main specs for every class, then you can spec into your armor type, weapon type, guild, profession, etc! It’s overwhelming when you want to do everything at once, but I keep reminding myself that that’s what alts are for!

Questing has been fun. I went with the Aldmeri Domination and Queen Ayrenn seems cool, she even killed some stuff in a crypt with me and I was only level 7! I like when leaders don’t discriminate based on level. I had read somewhere that the questing felt really repetitive but I haven’t found that at all. Yea I am only level 10 but it’s pretty similar to to questing in any MMO… actually I’d say the quests are more unique and interesting than I’m used to. And the environment is so pretty!

I figured I’d jump into professions as soon as I could and since both my characters I have been playing are heavy armor wearers, I have been focusing on Blacksmithing. I did a lot of blacksmithing in Skyrim and it’s similar. It takes forever to level up though, I have found destroying items for mats gives me the most progress so far. You can also research magical items to learn how to put that effect onto your armor/weapons that you make, which is pretty neat. I haven’t tried any of the other professions yet because I’d have no inventory space then. Upgrading your bags is pricey for a new character and you only have 60 slots to start out!

All your characters share a bank, which is kind of worrisome for an alt-o-holic like myself. It’s already full and I only have two characters on the go right now, but you can upgrade it as you make gold as well. You can’t mail your own characters item which kind of sucks but you can send mail to other players from anywhere in the game, no standing at a pesky mailbox in ESO!

So far the only problem I have with the game is that I didn’t buy the Imperial version and have to wait until the 4th to upgrade my account, lol. Oh, and that it’s down for maintenance right now and I had been planning on playing all night. Hopefully I’ll really get the hang of things in Tamriel and start posting on here regularly again all about it!

Sim Life > Real Life

Posted February 21st, 2014 by Miss Mediocre

It’s usually a sign that things in my life have gotten pretty bad when the only video game I find myself playing is the Sims 3, lol. When making a couple Sims, finding the right career and woohooing out a couple babies is more appealing than chopping things up with my sword, it makes me realize just how much of that “family stuff” my life is missing. Thank goodness for virtual realities!

Anyway I have been playing A LOT of Sims. During the anniversary sale I picked up the last couple expansions I’d been missing so now I’m rocking everything from World Adventures to Into the Future. One of my favorite things to do when simming is to make houses and venues. I’ve posted about a couple of them before on here so I thought I may as well share my latest creations since I don’t have anything else gaming related to share!

One of the expansions I bought recently was Island Paradise. I was really excited to try out the new house boats but after building a couple and living on one for a few days, I realized the water graphic in fast forward was starting to make me feel sea sick! I have to have my game graphics pretty low if I want my game to run well and I just couldn’t handle the water constantly rushing by on the lowest setting, so I moved to a private island and opened a resort! I got it up to 5 stars and basically lived there with my Sim while I ran it because the owner gets to stay for free. It was fun, reading the reviews guests would leave and then upgrading the place accordingly, but once I reached 5 stars I was ready to move onto other things. It took me about 20 hours to build, decorate and furnish the thing though, so I figured I’d better at least share it. The link to The Sunflower Resort and Suites on the exchange is here.

The other expansion I picked up lately was Into The Future. As hard as I try I’m never able to make decent looking modern homes. I love big old Victorian houses with turrets and ghosts and secret rooms, so everything I build in the Sims usually ends up in that style. I checked out a bunch of the new Into The Future homes though and looked at some modern houses online and came out determined to make one for myself. I think I scrapped two before I had a layout that I was happy with but now that it’s finished and decorated I really like it. I decided to share it as well, it’s on the exchange here.

Right now I’m not really using either of those lots however because I decided it might be interesting to try to make an insane asylum. With Into the Future came the “unstable” trait, which is a great one for the patients to have. Combined with some of the other ones, evil, neurotic, insane, etc, it’s made for some interesting characters. Whenever I’m done with it I’ll upload it as well, it’s now open, but still under constructions!

I haven’t felt up to logging into WoW at all. I totally missed the Valentines day event and I believe a couple thousand gold worth of my auctions has probably been deleted from my mail box now. I’m not sure why my interest died so suddenly, but it probably has to do with my change of address more than the game itself! I have still been making some WoW related jewelry though, I just finished my second set of hearthstone earrings (studs this time) and a “Horde” pendant to wear with my Alliance hoodie, since I really do enjoy both factions equally. I’m also working on a Fluxfire Feline figurine to go with my paladin statuette, I’ll post a photo of it whenever I get it painted!

Paladin Statue

Posted January 28th, 2014 by Miss Mediocre

Haven’t been on WoW much this month, but I did make this 7″ statue of my character Lauriella this week! (Made out of polymer clay and acrylic paint) So I thought I’d share it on here.

There’s Only “I” In This Team!

Posted December 3rd, 2013 by Miss Mediocre

I just wanted to write a quick post about my latest achievement. I have a guild that, up until 2 days ago, was made up of only my own characters. Because I have been into making gold for the past few expansions, I’ve been pretty good at keeping up with all the different professions. I noticed that there were only a few professions that I didn’t have at 600 yet, so I started working on them. I have Windwool Cloth coming out of my ears, so First Aid was simple. I’d found SO much Exotic Leather just grinding for rep and killing Zandalari Warscouts, so Leatherworking was rather painless. I had just reached level 85 with my Skinner, so I just ran around Pandaria for an hour and got my Skinning up to 600. The last step was Engineering! My warlock is 90 and had her Engineering around 500. Thankfully I have 3 level 90 Miners, so I had just enough Ghost Iron Ore to reach 595. For the last recipes I had, I needed Spirits of Harmony, which I had just used up making Living Steel the day before because my warlock is also an Alchemist. I really didn’t want to go and farm motes but I was SO close! Then I noticed all the Darkmoon Faire posters and balloons and remembered that you get 5 skill points for completing the profession quests there!

I headed happily to the faire, did my quest, reached 600 and NOTHING! I was so disappointed. I noticed that the guild achievement was missing Jewelcrafting, so I logged over to my JCer and because she is a Draenei, it was at 602/610. I whipped up a couple of rare gems and sure enough as soon as she reached 610/610, I got the achievement, Working Better as a Team. I was pretty happy since it is a guild achievement and I soloed it! I was even happier to see the reward was the Heirloom Leggings! I only have two more characters on my main server that can even use them, but I did notice something interesting yesterday that might make them more useful for me!

I know Blizz has talked about making BoA items cross server and I’m wondering if it’ll actually be fairly soon! I was mailing something to my alt and I noticed “Stelark – Drak’thul” as one of the options. I’m not even sure who that is, but I decided to try it out for one of my own characters! I typed in “Sylvadora – Winterhoof” (my blood elf paladin) and tried to send her some Timeless Plate Gloves. It didn’t go, but some text popped up that said, “You cannot send mail to that server”. It seems like a good sign that the option is already in the game, just not accessible yet! My alt-o-holic fingers are crossed!
