This Sunday the WoW Factor is going to the home realm of Noelani and I, Argent Dawn EU.
BUT WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR???
I’m not very confident in my own personal mogs, what I see at the WoW Factor events always surpasses my own collections. Damn, I can’t hide behind a level 1 this time!
Then again, the event is not about me and what I’m wearing, but about the people showing up, so dressing like the bridesmaid and not the bride, is probably a good demonstration of situational awareness.
Thus maybe I should wear a roleplay outfit!
It feels like such a silly thing – Not knowing what to wear in WoW?! I’ve never had that dilemma before.
I am both thrilled and so, so scared about going to our home realm. You really want the best experience for everyone when it’s on your own turf.
Last time we went to a roleplay realm was Emerald Dream US and they were very brutal. Argent Dawn is the oldest and biggest roleplay realm on the EU side. Big realms means higher chance of trolls. On top of that we’ve been warned from several individuals that hosting the event on our favorite spot, the Cathedral, might cause additional problems of attracting these trolls. Supposedly we’d be right in their backyard.
So we went out and visited the other capitals, and can only conclude that there is a very limited number of locations that will work. It’s funny how aware of the game space you become in these circumstances – there has to be enough room, lighting has to be as close to white as possible, no mounting and within trial account reach. On Alliance side you pretty much end up with Stormwind Keep, the Cathedral or Ironforge Library to choose between.
At the same time of being nervous of how my realm will receive us, I am absolutely excited because I know that we will see some amazing stuff. I have already collected some pictures from mog-spotting, and some roleplay outfits too, which I will post tomorrow.
