World of Warcraft: Legion Beta Screenshots

World of Warcraft: Legion Beta Screenshots

 

I’ve been a World of Warcraft player since the beginning (check out my characters here!) and was super excited to get an invite to the Beta. My fiance, Chris, got one too so we’ve been having great fun exploring. As we’re alliance players normally we’ve chosen to go horde for the beta because normally we never get to experience the horde storylines (my biggest horde is like 50 something) and we didn’t want to entirely spoil the expansion for ourselves.

I love taking screenshots and have an entire gallery dedicated to them. So naturally new beta, tonnes of screenshots time 😀 I’m sharing them on my Facebook page Ruby Wings Network so if you’re interested or know someone who is, please take look and like the page 🙂

Warning: There are spoilers and all albums are tagged with a spoiler warning.

5 Awesome Website Cliques To Join

Sharing Saturday: website cliques

Fandom Friday is on a break for May so no Fandom 5 this week, however, I will be choosing some old topics to complete for the next couple of Fridays.

This week sharing Saturday is focusing on website cliques – the word clique has a lot of bad connotations, however, in this case, it is a positive one. According to dictionary.com a clique can be defined as “Informal. to form, or associate in a clique“. A website is literally that; a group formed due to an association with something. In this case, website cliques come in all different colours and flavours. You would apply to join one, be listed as a member and link back to the clique on your site to show your membership. Cliques were mainly popular about 10 + years ago but they’ve been making a comeback, and they’re a great way to meet new people and get some more visitors to your site. They can be for anything, from a love of a certain thing, to claim sites such as my Bookworms Clique (claim your favourite book and show your love for reading) and Level Up! (show your inner gamer and claim anything from a video game), or for a particular cause to show awareness, like Fighting Everyday a clique for invisible illnesses.

So today I want to introduce you to 5 website cliques that I think are awesome. You can view more cliques and other ‘joinables’ over at Webmaster Links. Joinables are basically anything a webmaster/blogger can join in return for popping up a code/button/link back on their site.

 

Just can't get enough clique

Just Can’t get Enough

Food Clique

Food is one of those universal things that everyone has in common, whether you’re a chocolate lover or have a thing for apples, it unites us all.

 

dearestDearest

One True Pairing (OTP)

Not everyone has an OTP, but it is a common idea in most fandoms and that is why I love this clique. Again it brings people together and it’s a great way of celebrating your fandom.

 

Dimension cliqueDimension

Nintendo DS

While I’m not a DS player, I know that it is very popular and this clique has such cute little pixels for you to use to link back with!

 

Patron - Mythology CliquePatron

Folklore/Mythology

Patron is one of the oldest cliques still active and is for anyone who has an interest in mythology or folklore. You join and list a guardian of your website.

 

Soul Sisters cliqueSolstice

Princess Claim

This is a claim clique in which you choose a princess to protect. It isn’t limited to only disney princeses, so any princess from any fandom can be chosen!

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my little peak into the world of website cliques and hope you’ll enjoy exploring the world of cliques as much as I do! 🙂

5 Fandoms I LOVE But Didn’t Think I Would! [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - fandoms I didn't think I'd love

 

It has been a crazy week so a slightly later than planned Fandom 5 this week and I apologise that it’s also going to be a bit on the short side. I’m getting to the end of assignment deadlines so my brain is completely focused on library cataloguing, my placements and our group website project.

 

harry-potter

Harry Potter

The hype that was Harry Potter came out when I was in Sixth Form College and everyone, and I mean everyone, was obsessed. When one of the new books came out people were going crazy if someone spoiled it for them. I was a bookworm back then, but the fact that everyone was so obsessed – even the ‘popular’ in crowd, made me avoid it like the plague for a long time. Gradually around 2006/2007 I caught a few of the movies on TV, and then when I met my fiancé I found out he was a Harry Potter fan and had the whole set of books. So when he moved to live with me, he bought them too and fell in love with them 😀

 

sg1Stargate SG-1

I remember watching the original Stargate movie with my dad when it was first released on video, and over the years I’d caught a few episodes of SG-1 and I have to be honest; I wasn’t that impressed. As I got older I heard massively good things about it, and after a quick chat with Chris we both decided it was something we’d been meaning to check out. We loved it 😀 We’re currently on the first season of Atlantis now. I’m not sure what put me off it when I was younger, maybe I just hadn’t matured to a stage where I could actually appreciate the show for what it was. I am, however, really glad we decided to watch it 🙂

 

doctorwhoDoctor Who

I’d never seen any of the old Doctor Who (and still haven’t, I’m not a big fan of some things made in that era because the technology was crap, but that’s another story) and when the hype came about for the new one I was like… meh not really my thing. I then went to London Comic Con with an online friend who was a Whovian and so I accompanied her and her friend to John Barrowman’s talk. First of all, if you haven’t seen or met John Barrowman he is absolutely hilarious and down to earth. Seeing him, hearing about Torchwood (this was just before Torchwood started I believe) and Captain Jack… well of course I had to check it out. I started with Torchwood and then moved onto Doctor Who and been a Whovian ever since.

 

tvdThe Vampire Diaries

When I heard about the Vampire Diaries being made into a TV show I was so happy and also unhappy. I love LJSmiths books but out of all her novels, the Vampire Diaries was the one I really didn’t like. Way back when I was a part of the LJS fandom, everyone loooved TVD. So when it came out as a show I of course HAD to check it out, it was based on one of my favourite authors books, and I wasn’t all too sure if I liked it. In the end it turned out that this is one of the few times when the TV/Movie adaptation is much much better than the original novels. I’m really behind on it, simply because I’ve been on a crime binge for ages, but I still love the show and will catch up one day.

 

dragonVideo Games

Until 2004 I wasn’t a gamer. I’d tried playing games when I was a kid, namely Sonic on my mega drive, and had played on my cousin’s various consoles. Being mocked for ‘button smashing’ I had grown up thinking I could never play video games, and honestly, even until earlier this year when I completed Half Life 2 for myself, I believed that there were games out there I still would never be able to play. Now? The world is my oyster! I’m never going to be a console girl, I just can’t play that way. But PC games? I love em. You can check out my game library and gaming habits on raptr!

Useful World of Warcraft Addons I Recommend

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft Addons

 

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since 2007 and over the years addons have come and gone. Everyone has their own opinion of what addon is best for what, so I ask when reading this post to respect my opinions and not comment just to tell me that addon X is much better for this etc. I’ve not included ones for UIs or raiding because I wanted to focus on niche addons that are extremely useful for certain things. I’ve included links to curse as that is what I use to manage my addons, however, I’m sure if you google the name of the addon you can find it else where if you prefer.

 

Premade Group Finder

Premade Group Finder is my latest must have addon if you’re searching for rares, server hopping, looking for raids/groups of any kind. This bad boy kindly helped me get my darkmoon rabbit the other day and has made farming the MOP world bosses 100% easier. Basically it lets you make a list of keywords to search group finder and it will alert you when it finds one. You can set it to make noises, whisper you, pop up, and even whisper your friends. You can also set it to auto invite you when it finds a group, which for the darkmoon rabbit was an absolute necessity. Seriously, I would marry this addon if it was a person and if it ever breaks I will cry.

 

Pets to Buy

I featured all the Pet related addons in my Starters Guide to Pet battles but Pets to Buy gets a special shout out because it is so useful for avid collectors. It adds a module to Auctionator which automatically searches just for the pets you do not have yet. Fantastically useful if like me you have most of them and can’t be bothered to search through 100s of other pets.

 

Prayer of Mending Tracker

One for the priests, Prayer of Mending Tracker does exactly what it says on the tin; it puts up a little tracker that shows where your POM currently is and how long it has left on it.

 

MogIt

MogIt is a transmog must have. It allows you to view transmog sets in game as well as make a wish list on each character. If an item on your wish list comes up there is a note on the item to tell you it is on your wish list. This is especially useful for random greens/blues or crafting items, especially now that it crosses over on each character. So if X item is on your druids wish list, it will say so on your priest and so forth.

 

HandyNotes

HandyNotes is one of those addons that has multiple additional modules, such as the Timeless Isle, MOP scrolls and more recently treasures in WOD. It basically puts small icons on your map (and mini map if you choose) with notes about the item. These include what it is, as well as any bugs and notes about how to get it.  I started using it in the days of the Timeless Isle and still use it now.

 

Gepetto

Just a wee addon for toys, Gepetto is mostly useful for when you’re clearing out a characters bank or have returned from a long break from WoW before the toybox was put in game. It basically tells you what toys are not in your collection and where they are on that character.

 

Daily Global Check

Another little addon which is so useful if you’re farming World Bosses. Daily Global Check lets you check if you’ve killed a boss on that character – especially useful if you’re farming them on multiple characters. After killing the MOP bosses an extra time on one character once I decided I needed something to keep track of them.

 

Mount Farm Helper

There is just so many things to collect in game now that sometimes it gets really confusing and you can forget about things. That’s why I use Mount Farm Helper (and because I can never remember which dungeon drops what mount). It makes a list of what mounts you still need and where they come from.

 

Archeology Helper

There are loads of Archeology addons out there but this little gem I found last year when farming for achievements. Archeology Helper displays a little hub on your screen with a green, yellow and red button like you find on the archeology flasher. You stand on the spot of flasher and then click the corresponding colour, and it puts a little cone up to show that area. Each time you click a colour and add a cone it helps narrow down the search area until voila there’s your fragment. It’s a wee bit of a cheat, but I’ve done so much archaeology now and put in the hard work. that anything that makes it quicker is a bonus.
