Minipost: Celebrity Cynwise

Buglamp and I were doing an LFR on the weekend (he was tanking), and his co-tank on Ultraxion was very bad. We wiped, and the bad tank left, and we got a new Death Knight tanked named Gesara, from Moon Guard. A quick inspect showed nice gearing and Mastery stacking, so off we went.

Surprisingly, after dumping the dead weight on that first wipe, the group was amazing! Everyone did what they were supposed to do, and the sense of merriment and enjoyment was palpable, as evident by this Hour of Twilight reaction:

We got to Madness and waited for a few replacement players to fill out the group. At this point, the DK tank commented that she recognized our guild name!

That's right! Cynwise the blogger. The FORSAKEN WARLOCK. >:D

It was pretty awesome.


Bug also picked up a Kiril on his Druid, and immediately began smacking a target dummy in Moonkin form to become a Giant Boomkin. This is truly a sight to behold.

Oh, and if you're gazing in horror at that awfully-dressed Hunter...well, expect an explanation on Go Mog Yourself sometime in the future.

    I think my favorite part is despite being a DK from a RP Realm, s/he didn't recognize the DK and Lore Blogger in front of her but instead Cynwise's minor alt of indeterminable gender. "Why yes, we ARE a blogger guild *dusts monocle*"

    My shameful secret, revealed! I AM LEVELING A FORSAKEN WARLOCK.

    Okay, it really wasn't very much of a secret, was it.

    I would have loved to be on vent for the conversation as this was happening. :) <3

    'Forsaken Cyn' is just the Bizarro World equivalent of 'Human Cyn'. ;-)

    I would like to self-defend here for a moment--I'd forgotten _your_ blog's name, but I knew Cyn linked to you a LOT, and I read the Field Notes fairly regularly (woe and alas that it's going away). Also, she's got a screenshot up of that lock, or did at one point, on the blog.

    I've had brighter moments, I promise.


    OMG I'm internet famous!

    Immemorialized :D This story keeps getting better! (You should roll an alt with us or something, destiny calling, if you can cope with the orcderpants.)

    Field Notes are consolidating with the ex-Battlefield Manual all under the cynwise.wordpress address under the name Cynwise's Warcraft Manual. Not exactly going away, just relocating! /spiel off

    I'm an altoholic! My main is a paladin (Ulthnar of , Moon Guard, if you're curious)--Ges is one of a whole stable of alts and my only other 85, but that's close to changing. So, as for rolling an alt with you all...had me at hello.

    So. Pally and DK at cap, which means warrior or druid...expect another Tauren!

    As for derp, I completely forgot my flasks in that raid, so...
