Today we gonna meet our shaman class leader Lunelin, another sexy draenei :)
1. Could you introduce yourself (name, age, class, rl-job?)
My name is Tuija and I have my 26th birthday on monday. I play an
Right now I'm working as a "Tech Trainee" at Activeark
(http://www.activeark.com/). I do mostly front end web developing and
2. Tell us about when you started playing WoW and how it was back then?
I started playing at some point during TBC. I spent most of TBC just
leveling my character slowly, enjoying every little detail of the world
and learning to play the game properly.
When my character was lvl 60 or so, I started doing a lot of
battlegrounds, and also I knew I wanted to try out raiding. But then my
account got hacked and frozen, which meant I couldn't play for a few
weeks and my character was stuck on lvl 68 or 69, and when I finally got
my account back and leveled to 70, it was only a week before WotLK. :D
3. Why did you choose your class?
I knew I wanted to play a hybrid class, because I like being versatile.
I had also tried out a friend's shammy before I started playing and it
was fun. So I just started playing a shaman, and I really liked it.
Later on I also tried out some other classes, but I didn't enjoy them as
much as my enha shammy.
4. Do you remember any funny “fail” moment?
I guess it's kind of funny that I don't usually fail much, but almost
every time when we have killed some badass progress boss I've died or
otherwise failed on the kill try.
5. Please describe how you prepair for progress raids?
Well, obviously I try to find time to read about the tactics and/or
watch a video of the encounter, and fill my bag with potions. Then I
just try to keep focused and and do my best.. But considering my answer
for the 4th question, maybe I should just try to fail more often? :D
6. How important are addons for you( DBM, recount custom GUI etc)?
Some addons like DBM and Power Auras make my life as dps much easier, so
I think they are quite important. I like how they give me both visual
and audio cues when something important is happening, because the
default ui doesn't do that very well. Power Auras is especially nice at
new encounters, when DBM might not yet have a warning for some debuff or
such, but you can always use Power Auras to add a custom warning for it.
I also like using Healbot for keeping track of everybody's health
situation, and for throwing some heals fast if it seems like someone
needs them. (I also use it when I play my offspec, I don't like Grid at all)
Recount is not so important most of the time, but it's nice to have it
anyway. At least it helps you notice if you have the wrong gear on. :P
7. From your point of view: What makes up a good WoW player?
A good raider has good class/spec knowledge, does what's best for the
team instead of just always seeking personal gain, learns tactics in
advance and/or is a quick learner, listens to instructions, and is able
to react quickly to all kinds of things, like pools of fire. :D
8. If you could change three things in WoW, what would these be?
I would make 25-mans and 10-mans not have the same achievements and
gear. Well, at least not the achievements. Most 10-mans are so easy
compared to 25-mans that it's not even funny.
What else.. Well, I would fix all the bugs!
And a third thing.. Well, I would wait until Blizzard fucks something up
again so I could then fix it. :P
9. What do you think about the recent changes for your class?
My only complaint is that they increased the base cooldown of Wind Shear
for all specs and not just healers.
10. Does performance and seriousness other players in guild satisfies
I don't expect people to be "serious" as long as they are not just
slacking. I'm not quite satisfied with our performance atm, but I think
a lot of our troubles are caused mostly by lack of people or gear.
11. Besides WoW, what other games do you enjoy? What MMORPGs have you
I enjoy playing a lot of different games, allthough lately I haven't had
a lot of time to play anything else than WoW. But I have played some
Skyrim now and some time before I played LoL casually. Some of my
favourite games are Civilization, Age of Empires, Minecraft and "old"
platform games like Rayman and Spyro games (or even older ones like Jazz
Jackrabbit and Commander Keen). But I really enjoy most kind of games if
they are good. :P
I've tried a few other MMORPGs too, like EVE Online, Rift and LOTRO, but
they weren't good enough to keep me playing for a longer time.
Thank you for your time Tuija
