How were you introduced to WoW? - When I was in college a bunch of my friends played Vanilla and I thought it looked so cool, but I only had dialup internet at the time so I figured my computer couldn’t hack it. When I moved away for grad school and could afford a decent internet connection, I signed up. That was during the Lich King days.
What was the 1st toon you created, and why did you choose it? - Undead warlock. Undead are still tied for my favorite race; they’re punk as fuck. I didn’t know what a warlock was exactly, but I thought it sounded badass.
What do you do for fun inside the game (activity)? - If I’m not doing something with the team, I farm mounts and mogs.
What is your favorite zone in game and why? - I love the goblin starting area and wish I could go back there. It's just bonkers. I also love Tirisfal and Icecrown, Revendreth is awesome, and they're not really zones but Undercity and Thunder Bluff are decidedly underrated.
Theme song for your character? - Stone Cold Steve Austin’s ring entrance music.
Frequently, while in the midst of battle, some of us take a moment to reflect. What do you think of in the middle of battle? - Snacks, probably.
Most importantly out of all, what is your favorite in game mount? - God, so many it’s hard to say. Invincible, that elusive bastard, maybe. Of the ones that are more readily available, there’s something about the mechano-hog, depleted kyparium rocket, and turbo-charged flying machine that I love. Any of the goblin tech-looking stuff.
Do you have any pets? - 2 cats, Beta and Cactus Jack
What is your favorite out of game tasty treat? - If we’re talking sweets, I love ice cream, Oreos, and sticky/chewy candy. Sour Patch Kids are my fave, probably. Or Swedish Fish. If we’re not talking sweets, pizza and coffee. But not at the same time. And pancakes.
If you were a pizza topping, what would you be? - Hot peppers. Like, ACTUAL hot peppers. When places say hot peppers they usually just mean banana peppers, which are good but solidly bush league as far as heat goes.
What do you do for fun outside the game? - Listen to and play music (punk and hardcore mostly), read, lift weights, drink coffee, and explore the city
If a movie was made, who would be the actor playing you? - I wanna say some real handsome sex symbol type, but realistically probably some tiny anxious hipster-lookin dude. Elijah Wood or something. But you could do worse than Elijah Wood.
You can always find an guildie....smashing my toy train like a gd killjoy!
You know you're an guildie....if you are always working to do your best but are never a tryhard or a peacocking jerk.
If you would attend a guild meet-up, where would you recommend, and what would we do? - Get pizza and then go sit in a diner.
