World of Warcraft: It Pays to be Pretty

So I finally managed to get the whole customer service debacle behind me and got my Rogue transferred over from Alliance to Horde.

It occurs to me that while I enjoyed a lot of Alliance side’s offerings, in the end I didn’t have enough connections or feel like knowing people over there (( a lot of them were pretty much douches)), and so I ended up moving back. I miss the clothes more than anything, as human Misseri was beyond hotness with her slightly chubby features and corset-like top– but in the end, Undead have always been my babies, so the transition wasn’t so bad.

Thusfar, everything on Horde Side seems unchanged– I’m looking into the idea of getting into a Raiding guild, and picking up the whole “RP’ing” thing again at some point, when I get my head around how I actually want this incarnation of Misseri to act (( I think we’re officially on her fifth incarnation– the name will never change)).

But I’ve noticed something about both sides that leaves little to be desired, given the whole purpose of this server is Roleplay– If you aren’t pretty, you aren’t worth the time. Granted, you can get role play, but if a pretty little thing walks by and seems accessible at all, you tend to get ditched. I’m not saying everyone is like that, but making new connections comes down to that sometimes ((that and how far you’re willing to go, and for a girl who doesn’t “ERP”, I’m kind of lacking in tastiness for most teenage males)).

I wish it were less true, because I personally find Undead females to be highly beautiful in their own way– they appeal to me more than the waif-thin Blood Elves, for sure, because at least Undead have a reason for their figures being gaunt. I think I gravitated towards them because of the fact that I prefer the flawed to the perfect. Undead kind of represent this subtle kind of beauty– you have to dig past the layers of decayed flesh to get to the tastiness of the personality, and while I like that, it doesn’t work well in new role play. People tend to judge based on appearance first, and everything else later. It doesn’t bode well for someone who prefers the rotting flesh, no?

I’m just kind of hoping I can find a comparable raiding group to play with that’ll give me a bit of leniency on missing Raid dates considering the current situation of our internet flickering every now and again and me having to restart the router more than once a week. But… I guess we’ll see. My hope is that I find a reason to enjoy my game again, because as it is now I’m getting in one of those agitated funks that makes me anti-social– and that’s never fun for anyone.

Does anyone else who reads this game? Hell, does anyone else read all of these?

  1. I’m not much of a gamer so I can’t really relate, but there was a time before when I played DotA. I was about 10 or 11 when I first played, so, being the superficial little girl I was, I used Crystal Maiden for the sole reason that she looked prettier than all the rest. I used Lina Inverse after, another obvious choice. I did have this phase when I used no one but Queen of Pain. I never really got any good though, maybe cause I didn’t wanna use any character that wasn’t a girl.

    • My friend was crazy good at DotA– I never actually got to play but I’d likely have favoured Lina, if only because I was obsessed with Slayers for the longest time– but yeah, I get what you mean.

  2. I’ve actually never played World of Warcraft, but I have a lot of male friends who do, and I know from hearing them talk about it that they tend to prefer teaming up or playing with people who have pretty roleplaying characters(not sure what to call it). It’s kind of silly really, considering it’s all fake and digital, and you don’t even know what the person really looks like in real life.

    • That’s kind of how it happens, and it is ridiculously stupid, because rarely is the person behind the character as ‘cute’ as their digital persona– but in the end most people don’t invest in the characters that deeply so it doesn’t matter how realistic they are, non?

  3. You are a Extremely Skilled Blogger, Either have quality knowledge of what your talking about or you did some fantastic research. Many thanks for this excellent posting.

  4. I’ve only been playing WoW for about three months and I’m already getting bored of it. Not so much the game itself, but the people that play it. They aren’t very friendly and it’s hard for me to find people to play with. D: I’ve either had jerks or perverts to work with, lol. It could also be the server I’m on, though.

    I’ve thought about moving to Horde or making a Horde character from scratch and after seeing what you’ve had to say, I plan to do so sometime soon. 😀 I’m still waiting on the next expansion, because I am so making a new character on a server with you!

    • It helps a whole ton to have friends around to play with, yeah. Otherwise the game can get boring fast– I’ve found that if you don’t go into WoW with at least one person you know, you’re more likely to quit after a short while than those who do.

      Also, Cataclysm should be relatively soon and then I can help you out in meeting people or some’at too. ^^
