Compared to most of you I'm a relative noob to WoW having only started in July of 2011. My first toon was on an account of my son's which he "gifted" to me. I hadn't much more than lvl'd to 85 when we were made aware that playing on his account was a potential TOS violation. So I started one of my own and Bloodyfields was born. A Tauren warrior, as was my first toon. Seeing the Taurens I knew I had to be one. They are a reflection of my real life persona in appearance, big, hairy and have nose rings.
The more I got into the lore of the Taurens the more I realized I had made the right choice. Their spiritual bond with the land and all things on it, except Ally and scourge, is also in keeping with my persona. I am a gentle, loving, caring person with a very strong sense of right and wrong. When it comes to protecting me and mine or standing up for good people the true warrior in me comes out. So a Tauren warrior is a very good fit.
With the release of MoP I had to make a Panda monk, another reflection of me. I study Northern Praying Mantis kung fu, Chen Tai Chi Chuan along with a smattering of other Chinese martial arts. I practice traditional Chinese medicine, herbalism and try my best to follow the precepts of Taoism. My monks original name was Wang Lang, the great, grandmaster of Praying Mantis. It didn't take long before ppl started calling me Wang that I knew a name change was badly needed.
When I transferred this toon to Madoran to be in WCP guild I became Bloodylaotzu. Bloody, well the name just seems a right fit and Lao Tzu or Laozi, literally "old master" is believed to be the author of the Tao Te Ching. Not that I'm an old master but as an honor to this great old sage.
I also have a lvl 60ish monk Bloodypets which was my first toon in the guild. When I saw how friendly, active and pet crazy everyone was I soon began the complete transfer over to Madoran. Bloodyfields was GM of my lvl 25 guild which transferred also. I'm strongly considering leaving the guild in the trusted hands of an alt and bringing Bloodyfields over to WCP too. I still like to play my old cow and I have made so many friends in the guild it just seems the right thing to do.
Oh yea the pet thing. My son on my very first day in WoW gifted me some vendor pets. A dragonhawk and all the snakes from the vendor in Org. I was hooked from day one. I learned all I could about pets, how and where to get them and the climb to 50 and my first big acheev began. Breanni sent me Stinker. I met Breanni in her little shop in Dal, found out about the WCP website and 454 unique pets later here I am telling you more than any of you probably wanted to know about me.
With pet battles and wild pets to collect it just became even more addicting. Still don't want to have to fish up those stupid carp though.
I love to dung and raid with friends, hate LFR and LFD with a passion. I really stink at PvP but do love a good game of capture the flag. I mostly solo content, can grind with pleasure for rep, VP and gear. Although I have found some good running mates in the guild for doing dailies which makes them a lot more enjoyable. I really enjoy the lore of the game. Probably one of the few who actually reads the quests.
I'm sentimental to a fault. I cried during the Thrall questline in Cata. I cried when I got my Lashtail hatchling from the grasp of Lord Mandokir. Who am I kidding I was crying while talking with Eclectic about helping her run ZG to get hers back too. I am a Hordie through and through, although Garrosh will have to die, soon.
So there you have it. I'm a big, hairy, old Chinese Tauren warrior monk who loves this game, loves this guild even more and everyone I've met in it.
Thank you Warcraftpets guild for giving me a home and being my family.
Loktar o'gar, Bloody
