It's been a while. And do you know why? If you couldn't tell from the last few posts, I'll tell ya:
World of Warcraft.
Yep. I am officially an addict. It's not uncommon in my life though. I lost a whole summer to Starcraft 10 years ago.
Now, I have no excuse for staying in and only playing this game except it's so much fun!
But, as with many new things, I need to get used to the lingo. Maybe some of this is normal for some of you, but for me I had to ask silly questions to which a reply would be "die noob!"
Noob (or nub) = noobie = a new person
TY = simple: thank you. (used when you help another player slay a beast or if you give them healing or water)
NP = the reply to TY and it is "no problem"
LFG = looking for group
Tank = a type of player who "tanks" his way into a group of enemies"
Healer = a player who heals said tanks
DPS = "damage per second". That is my character's strength. I stand back and blast them with ice :-)
CC = crowd control (I can turn one enemy into a sheep, reducing the menace a bit.
I am getting the hang of all the lingo but it's not easy.
And why am I blogging and not playing??
