In which Yoshi is still a WoW-tard

In the Warcrafts, I have 4 level 80s: Yoshial (root: Yoshi Ayarane), Lesalia (root: Leslie Due), Philionel (root: Phil Ayarane) and Reimarael (root: Rei Dragonia). One by one I’m getting ’em flung into Icecrown Citadel– excuse me, ICE CREAM CITADEL, because I want tasty zombie ice cream and that Lich King is a bastard for hoarding all the good stuff.
Oh, and recipes too. Not so efficient to funnel all requests for ICC craftables through my brother, who until now has been the only raider in the guild and is not always on when stuff is needed to be made, not to mention he can’t make cloth gear… so now I’ll be helping out on that front. Woo!

hurr durr, yes, I totally jacked that ice cream nickname from The Instance but only because it is just that awesome. :P

Something stupidly hilarious occurred to me this morning… the penultimate boss in ICC is Sindragosa. Big freaking zombie dragon. You know… kinda like Ridley, except all icy and slightly dead-er.
My hunter (Reimarael) stems from the Rei Dragonia root character… and some would claim that Rei was kinda-sorta based on Samus Aran. (This is partially true.)

Oh yeah.
See where I’m going with this? XD
(If I pop Rapid Fire, I can kind of replicate the “spam missiles forever” trope that’s been the staple of just about every Ridley encounter, teehee)
Soooo, yeah. Rei vs. Sindragosa needs to happen, and I am totally rocking the appropriate music when I get there. Bonus points if I get a gun upgrade beforehand!

The other thing that is rofltastic about raiding is hearing all the botched pronunciations of my character names when everyone piles on Ventrilo. You would think they’d be self-explanatory… or enough to where people would know to truncate them. Oh well. (I did have one person ask if I was referencing the city in FFT when I brought in Lesalia for an ICC10 run…)
Oddly enough, the only one who DOESN’T get name-mangled is old man Phil, because everyone defaults to calling him Phil anyway. Also? The WTF reaction when the PUG raiders find out that the old dude priest is played by a girl? GOLD. I’m not the type to do things for lulz, but… yeah, that’s pretty hilarious. I mean, it’s commonplace to have dudes playing female characters and even on voice chat that doesn’t seem to affect much, but turn the tables and it just totally bamboozles people up the nose.
