**A note on dates. Dates are pretty important, but we have no idea how Silvermoon reckons time, so I’ve used the WoWWiki Unofficial Timeline dates for most of it. As such, all years are measured with the beginning of the First War as “Year 0” even though that makes fuckall sense for Blood Elves. You […]

Too Many Annas – Because Raiding and Roleplay are not Mutually Exclusive

A blog about synergy among healers, raiders, roleplayers or any combination of the above

I’m a 30-something married female gamer who spends a lot of time in Warcraft.   I’ve done a lot of healing, and considered that my specialty, though doing nothing else BUT healing left me a little grumpy, so I’ve moved on to expand my role into ranged DPS as well. I love both raiding and roleplaying, and most of my time in game is spent somehow related to those two foci.  I don’t have a regular raid group right now, but I moonlight with Run For The Door, when they have space for me.

My primary game time is spent Hordeside on the Feathermoon server (US-RP-PVE), where I play An’kona, a Resto and Balance druid, Anvari Zarthus, a Havoc Demon Hunter, Anryl Sunflare, a Beast Mastery hunter, and Anthilyen “Tilly” Stardusk, who is an RP only character. Alliance side, I have Angoleth Isera’Duna, a Beast Mastery hunter, and then a cadre of alts, including Aelflaed Caltrains, Farseer Annorah, and Annie Mae Spursparkle.  Right now my focus is definitely on the Druid class – a big change for me – since that’s the role I find myself filling in raid content.  Previously an officer and the healer lead in a 25 man raid, I’m now a clueless noob who raids as simply a sub healer and occasional ranged DPS.

I have a bevy of alts – An Xei Windpaw (pandaren shaman), Annata Calderaro (human rogue), Anaxandra Ampflare (goblin mage), plus a few others.

In real life, I am a writer living in the Houston area of Texas, USA with my husband and two cats. I generally enjoy being immersed in the wonderful world that Blizzard created, and it’s been part of my non-gaming life as well – I served as a staff writer for the Azeroth Advisor when that fine publication was still ongoing.

I also avidly play Diablo III, where I play a Witch Doctor and a Demon Hunter.
