19 Stunning World of Warcraft Legion Fanarts

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft Fanart - Legion

It’s been a while since I did a World of Warcraft fanart SS (check out the previous ones; Night Elves, Couples and Pets), and to celebrate the background downloader starting for the Legion Pre-Patch I figured that a Legion themed one was in order! A lot of the amazing Legion fanart out there is due to the awesome contest that Wowhead organised so make sure you check out the winning entries from that too. You can view all entries for the contest in the contest gallery as well.

Disclaimer: The work here is displayed only out of admiration and credit is given for every image (I use the ’embed’ code directly from dA). If you are the artist and want your work removed please leave me a comment. If you like some of the art here please take the time to visit the artist’s DeviantArt and/or leave a comment to let them know. This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.

SPOILERS – I’ve done my best to avoid spoilers, but I’m not infallible so I apologise if there are any included.

World of Warcraft Pre-Legion Bucket List

World of Warcraft: Legion

 

I did one of these way back when 2012 before Cataclysm, and so I decided it was time to do another one for the upcoming expansion, Legion. Due to having the beta and exams in August I’m only going to be able to get a few things done in time. So this list is split into three categories; essential, hopeful and on hold.

 

Essential

Legendary Ring

I’m on the last part of the chain along with Chris, and we are trying very hard to get this done before Legion. We do have time and have already started so there is no reason why we won’t succeed at this one 🙂

 

Level my Paladin to 100

She’s currently sitting at around 95 and is the only character close to max level that isn’t there that. My other two characters, Tempestia my warrior is 80, and my monk Takeko is 12 (I’ll be using the boost from legion on her). So that leaves Melantha, my pally.

 

Get my Moose!

I absolutely love the Grove Warden mount and I’m determined to get it before the new expansion comes out as it will likely be unavailable after that.

 

Pepe

I’ve been working my way through my Pepe achievement and now only need Drov, so after the reset this week I should be done!

 

Hopeful

 

Collections – Wardrobe

The new wardrobe system means there’s even more stuff to collect, including shirts and tabards. I’ve already got a list of each on my listography. I can’t collect them on my main, Kaelea, as her bank and void locker are crammed with stuff so I’ll need to do it on an alt who has bank space.

 

Collections – Toys

There are a lot of non-toys becoming toys and yep, there’s a list of progress for them too. I’ve already started 😀

 

Pet Charms

All my pets are max level, all are epic and any new ones are very rare/take a lot of effort, shop or TCG. So I’m pretty much done for pets this expansion, therefore I’m saving up pet charms for Legion.

 

 

 

On Hold

 

Old Runs

For mounts, music rolls, transmog and whatever else. This is on hold until after Legion comes out.

 

Achievements

I’m an achievement whore, and currently have a score of 20465. There’s a few achievements I’ve been wanting to finish for a while, such as Glory of the Pandarian Hero. Unfortunately there’s just not time to spend on them before Legion comes out.

 

Horde Characters

My poor Horde characters have been very neglected, and every time there is a new expansion I always say that before the next one I will have a max level horde. Every time I fail. Hopefully this time I can manage it because I really want to see the horde side of so many storylines.

 

Do you have a bucket list? What do you hope to complete before Legion? Are there things you’ve had to put on hold as well? Let me know in the comments!

4 Beautiful Etsy Stores I Love

Sharing Saturday: etsy stores

 

 

I love etsy and have been known to get lost on it for hours on end. Here are a selection of stores I’ve been following for a while. I absolutely love their style and the range of items they sell and I hope you do to!

Do you have any awesome etsy stores you think I’ll like? Leave a comment! 🙂

 

brandi2 brandi3brandi1

 

 

Brandi York Art

What drew me originally to this store was the gorgeous art nouveau style art as shown above, however, since then Brandi’s art has grown in leaps and bounds. Her stop features a wide range of geeky items from various different fandoms. Shown above are her pieces for Sylvanas (World of Warcraft),  Harry Dresden (Dresden files) and Jaina Proudmore (World of Warcraft) – click a photo to be taken directly to that item!

Circes House

As a Pagan I often find it hard to find jewellery that uses unique gemstones, and so I turn to etsy for my fill. This store in particular caught my eye because of the use of various gemstones with delicate items and beads. I’m not a big fan of massive stones, so this store suits me well. Items displayed are Labradorite necklace, Moonstone earrings and a Citrtine Necklace.

TheHouseof Mouse

TheHouseofMouse is exactly what it says; a house of mice. Namely, the mouse version of most cult and geeky fandoms around, along with some other historical and notable figures. I don’t need to explain why they’re on the list; just look how cute they are! Featured above is Chewie (Star Wars), Dumbledore (Harry Potter) and Weeping Angel (Doctor Who).

AngryHairJewelry

This shop is one I have personally bought from (the gorgeous labradorite earrings in the first picture) and can attest to the beautiful craftsman ship. I love the designs of this shop and the variety of gemstones used. Pictures show Labradorite earrings, Turquoise bracelet and Tourmaline necklace.

Youtube: Legion Beta Alliance Priest Episode 1 is now live!

World of Warcraft: Legion - Alliance Priest Youtube video

At the beginning of the year I took part in a 5 Fandom Friday about 5 chances I was going to take in 2016. Well this is one of the BIG ones on that list. Anyone that knows me knows I love talking, which is weird because I’m really not all that confident. Being class rep for my postgraduate during the last year and getting to know people through this blog has helped me realise that being talkative isn’t a bad thing. Sure, it’s going to annoy people, but I’ve also helped people. I don’t know if any of my fellow students are reading this, but you guys coming to me for help was one of the best gifts you could give me. You reaffirmed things some people have been telling me for years.

So, I took the plunge. You saw the little video I posted the other day, well, that was a very little one. This time it’s the real deal. Me talking, me opening myself up and taking you with me as I look at a class that has been dear to me for a decade now. Episode 1 is up right now with more coming very soon!

I understand that people may not want to watch it due to spoilers, and that’s ok, totally get it. So if you can’t watch it then please subscribe, or pass it on to other gaming/geeky friends 🙂

5 Fandom Habits I Have [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - Fandom habits

A day late due to the shocking events of yesterday, so today you’re going to get a bumper post of 5 fandom friday and sharing saturday (coming later!)

So this weeks prompt is fandom habits, and it was a tricky one because I wasn’t sure what to include – and then my brain went into overdrive and I had to cut it down to 5. Hope you enjoy 🙂

 

Getting emotionally invested

I’ve always been an emotional person, so it is no surprise that fandoms get the same treatment. I’ve been known to cry while watching/reading stuff, seeking cuddles after something happens and screaming at the TV. I’ve also avoided some books, mainly in the Star Wars EU because a character dies in it and I couldn’t bring myself to go there. It took me a long time to finish the New Jedi Order series thanks to that!

 

Further Reading

If I fall in love with a fandom I will devour any source of information I can get my hands on; books, comics, and so forth. I’ve been known to read through wiki’s and fansites for fandoms I’m interested in, but not a massive fan of, such as comic universes. There’s so much to cover that even when I get a chance to start reading, I’ll still never cover it all quick enough for my brain. The most notable fandoms are my two biggest; Star Wars and Warcraft/World of Warcraft, and it shows from my collections! I also started reading the Doctor Who new adventures novels a few years back and fell in love with those.

 

Collecting

Like emotional investments, I’ve always been a collector and so it also now applies to fandoms. Plushies, figurines, keyrings, trading cards, books/comics, video games, things in video games 😛 You get the idea 😀

 

Binge Watching

So this one isn’t unusual, however, I tend to binge watch shows that were around years ago and then swallow up every season. I especially do this with crime shows because I keep running out of current ones to watch. It’s also not uncommon for me to start a new show (at the time), such as Vampire Diaries or Once Upon a Time, and then pick them up years later. Yep, way behind with both of those but I know I’ll catch up eventually.

 

Bad Judgement

I have a terrible habit of loving the bad/treacherous characters and then oh crap, they’re evil!! Agents of SHIELD is the worst culprit for this (Whedon, I both love and hate you) and every time I watch that show now I’m like ‘please don’t be evil!’.
