Nazgrel;US;Lamhirh;1 I'm migrating to the new site, smell ya laterz.
My main, Lamhirh is a hunter, the first class I played. Yeah yeah, "noobs pick huntards" but whatever, I tried my best to avoid pulling stupid crap like stacking spellpower and having a pet on agressive (that button is unbound for a reason).
I'm a bit of a lore nerd, though Nazgrel isn't an RP realm and most people probably don't give a crap. In my guild though, when someone asks "why is___________?" or some otherlore question, it's usually me that answers. Having read a large number of lore pages here on wowwiki, I have managed to cause some RP arguments in random dungeons and battlegrounds ("pretty sure warlocks and druids hate each other, but you're healing his lifetaps anyway?" and in Warsong Gulch "You're a draenei, I'm a rogue. You think rogues are dishonorable, so why are you hanging out with me?"). Yeah, I went there.
I hold my allegiances to the Alliance. I've been favoring them since Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness for some reaso, and just can't make the switch to playing Horde without a very good reason (other than reading the quest texts). The majority of my characters (4/10) are Night Elves, possibly a hold over from playing an Elvaan back on Final Fantasy XI, with the remaining six being humans, dwarves, gnomes, and draenei, with Blood Elf thrown in for bothering people I know on the Horde. My first alt would be Prishe, a priest, followed by Shantotto (gnome mage), and Painaigh (DK).
Yeah, the links aren't to armory, rather articles about the source of the name. Two are Final Fantasy XI NPCs, the others are all Seikai no senki names. What can I say, I'm a fan...
I'm a business management student. I find there's plenty of room to practice what I learn outside the game in the classroom in a raid environment, though I rarely take the leader role in WoW until someone else effs up. Why fix something if it isn't broken?
I'm also a cellist (an oversized violin, for the less cultured -.-) and as a result have seven European languages often shoved down my throat, resulting in a limited vocabulary and understanding of German, French Italian, Spanish, Czech (mostly since I play Dvořák), and by extension, Latin.
I also watch a fair share of fansub anime, which means I hear a lot of Japanese, though I find reading subtitles a piss-poor way to learn a langauge, but it has lead me to pick up various words and phrases. It was handy back on FFXI, where servers are not segregated by region and it was perfectly possible to see 4 languages spoken in a 6 man party (EN/JP/FR/German are officially supported), creating a bit of a langauge barrier that even the game's auto-translate dictionary couldn't completely solve. While I couldn't (and still can't) read Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana, I could at least communicate basic directions in Romaji to avoid getting booted from a group. Sadly being out of practice has lost a good portion of that D:
