Greetings Traveler!

I've been expecting you.
This blog will be dedicated to the World of Warcraft online role playing game, and my character's progress and achievements within that world.

I am a Tauren druid on the Tanaris realm. Tauren are like Cows and Bulls that walk upright, and have the ability to stomp the ground so hard that everyone close by will be dazed. They are mostly a peaceful race that honors nature through respect for the Earth Mother.

As a druid, I am especially in tune with nature, and call upon the forces such as wind, roots, lightning, and insects, during combat to best my enemies.

During my early days I spent time hunting in Mulgore, and doing mundane favors for various leaders in my home town of Thunder Bluff. I joined up with a guild named, “The Horde Confederacy” which served me well as I progressed in levels and into the other lands. As do most others, I made my progress in the Barrens, then headed south to Thousand Needles, and overseas to the Eastern Kingdoms where I battled all the wild creatures in Stranglethorn Vale. There was a time between level 30 and 50 that it seemed I did more traveling than I did battling monsters. I went to Feralas, Felwood, Winterspring, Moonglade, Silithus, Plaguelands and more.

I was reaching level 58 back when the first expansion, "The Burning Crusade", came out. Therefore, I never did get to play the level 60 raid instances. I went straight to Outlands where I eventually raided Karazhan with the Synergy guild. We did Gru'ul's Lair, and Black Temple, and then the guild evaporated until the next expansion, "Wrath of the Lich King". Synergy raided Naxxaramus, and started in on Ulduar, but the guild fell apart as they sometimes do.

Now I’m in an outstanding guild called, “Deaths Advocate”. We are battling our way towards defeating the Lich King. At the time of this writing, we have entered into the Icecrown Citadel and taken out Lord Marrowgar, Lady Deathwhisper, Professor Putricide and the Blood Prince Council. We are currently trying to defeat the Blood-Queen Lana’thel. I plan on documenting our progress on this blog as time allows.

I specialize in healing and have finely tuned my armor and weapons to maximize my health restoring efforts. However, during times when not raiding, I take the form of the great owl beast to improve the damage I can do to the bad guys.

Recently, I have obtained the title of "Elder Rusko", which is fitting as I am a bit older than the average player. I'm glad to have achieved that title so I can quit using my previous title, "Rusko the Love Fool", which was associated with the Love is in the Air seasonal event.
Other titles I claim include, Crusader, Champion of the Frozen Wastes, Ambassador, Explorer, and a few others.

More to come…

May the eternal sun shine upon thee!
