Today my RRT will be about Valentines aka Love is in the Air and how I’ve been celebrating it for the past 5 years. In-game. I also want to introduce a new thing called BWT: Best Weekly Transmogs, where I secretly take screenshots of nice mogs I find around Azeroth, and then post them here and pray they don’t report me for copyright.
Okay so. I’m in a long-distance relationship, been for 5 years now. We met on WoW, in Gundrak, he joined my guild, and the rest is history. We see each other as much as we can, he visits me at least twice a year for 10-30 days and we have a blast. Is it hard? Sometimes. Is it impossible? Hellz no. As long as the love is strong, the distance is bearable.
Anyway, point is, because February is such a crap month work-wise and school-wise, we can never pull off a visit around Valentines. Not that I mind, as V-day isn’t really an official holiday where I live, but still, I miss the mushy sappy stuff. So, we try our best to celebrate it in-game. You think that’s sad? Well, when you’re in a long-distance (and I mean several countries and some water between us) then sometimes WoW is the best you got.
If you’re in a similar situation and wanna celebrate V-day with your hunny bunny in-game, then here’s what we do:
Best location is Darnassus. Definitely. That big arch/bridge when you first enter Darnassus from Teldrassil is perfect. Unless for some reason there’s people there, it’s quiet, peaceful, and very romantic. Darnassus and Teldrassil have that special glow in the zone, so it makes everything look even nicer.
I think the Tuxedo set plus idk, some dress is an outdated tradition. What we like to wear is the Red Festival Dress/Suit. It’s matching and cute, and easy to obtain. Of course, outfits are optional, but don’t you think you sitting across a guy with a green helm and a huge axe with blood on it is a tad…unromantic? So just snuggle in that lovely silky goodness and be a cute matching pair. Boom.
Okay okay! This is important. Head to Dalaran for a few reasons: Wine and cake. Go to the Cheese shop in Dalaran shown below, and purchase two Red Wine Glasses. They’re off-hands so anyone can wield them. Then buy a wine of your choice. The best part about this shop is that the wine can be “placed” if you know what I mean, you can put it on the table and it will be actually visible, and clickable for some delicious pixelated wine.
Next, turn the corner to the Cupcake stand, and buy a cake. I don’t think the Chocolate one works as it has candles, but the Lovely cake is just gorgeous. Pink, with red strawberries, just looks yummy and goes very well with the theme.
Few more items you might want to check out: the items sold from the Love is in the Air vendors. The Bag of Candy, for cute candy pieces such as this or this, and the Romantic picnic basket, for an after-dinner picnic. Here’s a link to the vendor so you can see what other items can be purchased. Keep in mind, you’ll need a bit of currency for this, but it’s easy to obtain by doing a daily or two.
(Note: not my BF’s main)
THE BOAT RIDE:
Not a very known fact, but around Darnassus and Stormwind (also Undercity for horde) there are boats that you and your partner can hop in, and then you’re taken for an automatic ride around the city, surrounded by floating candles. I love this. It’s on auto-pilot, so you and your darling can sit back and relax, and just chat. Maybe nomnom some candy. It’s a really lovely addition by Blizzard, I <3 them for that.
So yeah, that’s it. That’s how my V-day goes and I love it Sure, it might be “sad” or nerdy, but who cares, it’s loads of fun and it’s very cute.
BWT (Best Weekly Transmogs) is also something I wanted to do for ages. I’m basically stalking people in gorgeous mogs, take a screenshot, and run away. Okay it’s not as creepy as it sounds, sometimes I ask them if they can turn towards me, and I explain why etc. I won’t say more about this, I didn’t hide people’s names so you can all see how awesome they are. If you see yourself here, and you want me to take it down, then I’m sorry and I will But you should feel honored really as I don’t do this often! <3 Also keep in mind, I don’t know any of these people, it’s just people I saw in the city or in a dungeon.
Here they are, in no particular order:
(I made her the vest and she wanted to show me what she did with it, yay!)
I’ll try to include BWT in every RRT, so if you see me (Samaramon@Argent Dawn) and you want me to include your mog, poke me! I’d be more than happy to ^_^
Not much more to say about this week. I broke my 14k achievement points yay. I know it might not be much, but I don’t PvP nor raid so I try to do EVERYTHING I can outside of those two branches. Yeah I’m an achieve hunter, who isn’t.
My hunter got 4-5 new pets, I did some stable spring-cleaning (It’s not spring but eh). I abandoned 5 pets that I only ever tamed because of the difficulty or rarity, not because I ever use them. Those included Deth’tilac, Karoma, Patranache, Stompy, etc. I just love camping pets and the thrill of the tame, but if there’s no bond, then no point in them sticking around. I tamed a few new ones from 5.1, and I’m pleased so far.
In IRL news, I made some delicious banana bread/cake. Just mix in some flour, sugar, few eggs, a bit of oil, bit of milk, and add 1-2 mashed bananas, mix them good, put to bake, voila. Cover the cake with some melted chocolate, and enjoy your tastegasm.
Sam signing out, over!
