Things I Love about Warlords of Draenor.

Yup, a post about what I'm currently loving in Warlords of Draenor...... PLUS my first giveaway.         ( Which will be at the end of my post. )

 I'm sure everyone has their own likes and dislikes in Warlords, just like in any World of Warcraft expansion, but just for the heck of it, I'm going to share things in the current expansion that I personally love.

1. The cinematics .
    For some reason this expansion has really got me into the story line, and the cinematics make it that much more interesting. Blizzard has always been good at doing them in expansions, but the current ones are .... I guess I could put it, emotional in a way. Especially with the whole Garrosh and how far he's fallen. I realize there are probably other cinematics that I haven't seen or have skipped that are just as great, but these ones stand out to me. The new character models really allow Blizzard to portray the emotion of the story in a way that they previously couldn't do.

2.Garrisons
    Some people have a love hate relationship with garrisons, ( one being my husband ). I enjoy them. I like the fact that you can customize them ( to a certain extent ), with specific buildings for your professions, and how you can have guild banners displayed proudly. Also eventually you can display monuments around your garrison, with the achievements you have.  Some of my favourite buildings in my garrison are : The Barn: I love being able to trap something and take and put work orders in, then a while later, have feasts for my raid team/ guild bank, without the pain of having a ton of mats in your bags.
The second building that I love is the Stable: I like collecting mounts, and I like that they can walk around in the designated area. Perfect for my Blood Elf hunter.

3. The Quest Lines. 
     Specifically the Arokkoa quest line, and the Elemental one. I love the story of how the Arokkoa came to where they are, and the mini quest where you get to play as one, and get his point of view ( forgive me, I forget his exact name ) It just felt fresh, like something I haven't done before, and I thought it was carried out well.




Then the Elemental line. Again to me it felt like something new, brought back a little bit from Cata ( or the feel of Cata for me) and was interesting.

4. The Dungeons 
      I love most of the dungeons, the new, look and feel. They are challenging and make you pay attention, like the good old dungeons did. You have to watch where you stand, and interrupt, and they look pretty awesome too. My favourite is Auchindoun


Lastly............... my FIRST ever giveaway!

I'm giving away a World of Warcraft Pet . Winner can choose which one they would like.

Christmas and New Years

Christmas has come and gone.... it went by super fast, and was a green one for us. Didn't make it feel very much like Christmas.
Our daughter is a very spoiled little girl, she ended up getting a lot of gifts, and was very well behaved.
Her main presents were an electric toy car, and an art easel.She also got, a pony set with a barn, puzzle blocks and shapes, colouring books and crayons, Tinkerbell dolls, Tinkerbell clothes and pjs. A Frozen nightgown, a Disney princess sitting chair, The Fox and the Hound dvd, some Princess reading books, as well as a couple of outfits. She loves everything, but prefers her easel and car most days. That will change in a week or two. ;)
 The Christmas gifts before the mayhem started .
 Her new Volkswagen car, that shes completely in love with.
Our little munchkin doing her thing, at her new art station.

   I'm very happy that our daughter had a great Christmas, and loves all of her gifts. ( she also received some gifts from her uncles and aunt and her grandma early, she got outfits, that she won't take off ( we're in that stage now ) and bath markers which she will not let go of during bath time, a Buddha board, and a couple other gifts, and a Tinkerbell Build-A-Bear. She was a very lucky little girl.
I most thankful for my family.... you guys know  who you are! Our daughter and of course my husband, we've all been very lucky.
Speaking of which, our little girl turns TWO in 2 days.... I can't believe, so after work tomorrow I'll be running around trying to get her birthday gifts in order. As for New Years we were in bed and sleeping by 830pm, that's a party haha.

How many of you have little ones with birthdays so close to Christmas and New Years? Do you buy them separate gifts?

Happy New Years everyone! Here's to a great 2015!
