Raid From The Heart

Posted October 16th, 2010 by Miss Mediocre

I was up pretty late last night working on my submission for Blizzard’s Cataclysm Print Ad Contest (it’s still so far from being finished, lol) but I did manage to get out of bed today in time to participate in Raid From The Heart!

Raid From The Heart was put on by Big Bear Butt (a WoW Blogger), on the Kael’Thas server and was an Alliance vs Horde race to the Thandol Span. Everyone was wearing red tabards and red shirts and it was really fun to see! I rolled a Blood Elf mage and named her Missmediocre, and of course managed to die on route to the Thandol Span (hehe nasty Syndicates). Someone was quick to rez me though, but because of a few other deaths and some pauses for screenshots, the Alliance beat us!

Once everyone reached the bridge there was some dancing and a few PvP deaths before we all jumped off the bridge into the water below. Everyone then formed into a heart in the water, surprisingly with minimal instructions (at least on the Horde side of things). Once many screenshots were taken, everyone headed for shore to be ported to Dalaran. Apparently the Alliance was having magemalfunctions and the horde mage porting us accidentally clicked on his own portal before he’d ported everyone away, so we had to wait for him to make his way back from Dalaran. I had fun waiting around though and managed to snap a screenshot of myself with the Bigbearbutt himself (hehe)!

Everyone managed to make it to the World End’s Tavern in time to see L70ETC though, despite the problematic portaling! I even got a screenshot with both BBB and Gnomeaggedon in the bar, hehe.

I haven’t participated in any in-game community events in ages, so I’m glad I managed to log on in time to take part in this one, as I had a lot of fun!

There are Raid From The Heart t-shirts for sale through Big Bear Butt’s site and the proceeds go to the American Heart Association, so I will try to order myself one and post a pic when I get it!

    Just dropped by to say I saw you dancing away… turns out you grabbed a snap as well.

    It was a fun event, worth waking at 4am to be at, even with a dead of my own.

    Gnomeaggedon : I saw you dancing away as well, on a table of course! Gnomes sure know how to party, lol. Thanks for dropping by to leave a comment, I didn’t think anyone there actually knew who I was, hehe. :D

    lol, when you followed me on Twitter, I came to see who it was and the pink wig stuck in my mind.. kinda expected a pick haired Gnome, but you were rocking away as a Belf.

    Gnomeaggedon : Hehe, I spent a long time trying to decide what race to bring that day! I wish more races had pink hair! It seems like whichever races have the option to go pink, don’t have any good styles, lol. A gnome would be really cute with pink hair as long as she was tall, lol, I’d definitely have to play one then!
