Moo. I mean, meow.
So yeah, I succumbed. Because the WoW blogosphere really needs another feral druid blog, amirite?
And because occasionally I too feel the need to be opinionated as all hell about issues of vital importance such as the new druid forms (1. Yay!!!; 2. Still yay, but WTF is with the nosering? I kill things WITH MY FACE, I do not want a nosering getting in the way of this; 3. /target pink nelfkitty, /point, /laugh), the gathering coolness that is swift flight form (see node, get node, instacast and gone,) and my ongoing obsession with sneaking a Ferocious Bite in between the Rip/Savage Roar alternation (I can’t help it. Seeing a big yellow 14000 flash up in my face makes me happy. It’s good for morale or something).
(Also, I like parenthetical statements.)
The name is from way, way back in vanilla WoW when my husband der Panzercow and I would go kill stuff, either duoing our way through Silithus or raiding with the Anvil. I got good at delivering damage but bad at managing aggro, and developed this wonderful Pavlovian tic where, when I heard “SWEETIE!” in a certain tone of voice, I would just hit Cower. It still works. “SWEETIE…” *Rashona presses the 8 key, remembers that it’s now Maim, and swears* Somewhere along the line, I got tagged with “Aggrokitty”.
I have way too many alts, which I may or may not get into, but my main is Rashona, a Tauren druid on Feathermoon. She’s been feral since day one, back when feral druids were useless for anything but solo grinding. I enjoy druid healing, but a combination of RP and my own personal preferences mean that she’s spent a grand total of three hours (out of four years’ playtime) as resto. (When dual-specs were announced, I got lots of teasing about my plans to spec Rashona feral/feral. In point of fact, I did.) And I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise after four years, but all of a sudden people are asking me about how to play kitties. So I figured I’d blog about it and see what happens.
