Data Diving: Jibba-Jabba!

3 11 2009

Well, in this installment of  Data Diving, we’re going to look back a bit for this little tid-bit of what I found one day by delving into the 3.3 PTR models. If you can remember way back when WoW first starting getting celebrities to help promote the game, who did they get right of the bat?

That’s right. B.A. Baracus. Or more commonly known as Mr. T.

So, who did I find one day, as I was delving in WoW Model Viewer? Let me show you…

After doing a little more delving, this seems to be a [Mohawk Mask]. It’s wearable by all races, both male and female. Apparently, it happens when someone throws a [Mohawk Grenade]. How one gets one of those, and if it’s consumable, is still unknown. As for speculation, I think this may be part of a future TCG Loot Card, or a gift to us from Blizzard.





Data Diving: Thinga-ma-bobbers!

2 10 2009

Sorry for not posting in a while, folks. With work and various RL stuffs going on, I haven’t been posting as much as I should be.  But, I’m going to try and do better.  Anyhow, on with the post!

I was actually delving through WoWMV this morning before work, trying to somehow piece together some pics for a art collage that I have in my mind for a fellow guildie and friend, when I ran into these interesting models:

According to the file-path names, these are of course, different fishing bobbers, supposedly added in 3.2.2. What I’m personally wondering and speculating, could these be part of some of the interesting changes that Blizz said they’d be working on for the re-design to fishing come Cataclysm? Right now, it’s anyone’s guess.

And since the 3.3 PTR hit servers today, I’m downloading it as we speak. Hopefully, there’s a few new things I can show you folks as well!





RP: Finding the Line…

22 08 2009

Originally posted on the Netherbane forums, this is my first written RP snippet  with Kharendos told in his own words. I hope you enjoy.

~—-~

It has only been a couple of moons since I entered the tutelage of the demon hunter group known as the Netherbane. I write this now as a personal record of how things progress as time passes; a journal, if you will…

It was because of the Legion that we had gained the name of Draenei, or the “exiled ones”. For many years we were hunted by those we had once called bretheren, swayed by the lust for power and immortality. For millenia, we did what we could to repell them, and to fight another day with the help of our allies, the Naaru; beings of pure light who took care of us for so long, and watch over us still.

Even when we had found ourselves a refuge, they still came. They had twisted those who lived there into wiping us out, thereby damning themselves…

…this new world, the one they call ‘Azeroth’… I do not wish the same fate as other worlds that have been sundered because of the demonic masses.

I have been spending hour upon hour, reading historical tomes of the ways of Shamanism, as well as the ways of Demon Hunters… It is in between those two that I try to find a amicable bond of which in order to recieve the blessing to call upon the elements around me, whilest also being able to control a dark power within…

It is….confusing to say the least. To be a vessel for both, there must be a balance; this is something I am trying to research still. Whether such a thing is possible, only the winds of time know.





Meet the Cast: Garouk Thunderhorn

17 08 2009

garouk-wave

(“Meet the Cast” is going to be a bit of a on-going series here on this blog, where I discuss a bit about the RP-side of my characters, and a bit of insight into the history of my journeys with them, be it RP-related or not. Either way, I hope you guys enjoy.)

“From the plains of Mulgore he was raised with fellow sons of the Thunderhorn tribe,  and as time passed he became an exceptionable hunter like those before him.

But like the time before the Tauren allied themselves with the Horde, he too was nomadic. He began to travel the lands of Azeroth, learning about the world around him, and those within it.  He has encounters many evils of this world, but has also taken in some of what the world has to offer. A kind-hearted Tauren to those who are the same to him, but will retaliate if someone provokes him enough.”

RP aside, Garouk here has been my staple character ever since I’ve started playing WoW. The idea came to me after I heard a wacky little song  called “Cows with Guns”. What made it hilarious for me as well, is that they did indeed start with guns.  After a while, I loved the entire aspect of the class, and learned my role in both PvE and even raiding.

I can’t really say I’ve RPed with this guy since he’s been on a PvE server (Gilneas-US)  since conception, but I’ve always had a bit of a vague outline of his story in the back of my head.

You never forget your first toon, and this guy is no exception. Hopefully in the future, I’ll write little snippets here and there about him, and his life in the Warcraft world.





Inaugural Post!

10 08 2009

Well first and foremost, let me introduce myself.

Most folks know me as @Kharendos from Twitter, where I’ve oddly been part of the little WoW community there for the past month or so. I’ve been playing WoW since 2006, with my most played toons being well, ungulated (hooved).

My main idea for this page is pretty much to keep those interested in my happenings in WoW, as well as the various things I like to to, like RP and toying around on WoW Model Viewer.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride so far. Just watch out for the Construction Gnomes at the moment…still trying to get things  situated around here.
