Hey there. :)

Post  Skorpsy on Tue Mar 13, 2012 5:00 pm

Ok, I originally posted in marra's thread, as I hate making threads,but seems everyone else has their own so I didn';t wanna hijack Marra's thread.

Hi, I'm Skorpsy, (Lori in rl) though I originally went by Scorpio for all my online stuff, until WoW. It seems there's a helluva lot of scorpio's on every server with every possible spelling combination, so Skorpsy was born (though skorpsy is horde as most of my toons are, my first toon was actually ally)

I started playing in early BC when my husband was out of the country for a year for work. I convinced him to play upon his return. That way he could never nag at me about being up so late or sitting online so much. =P

The friend that got me to play no longer plays anymore, but he brought it to my attention very early on that I was a terrible player. (but he explained it a lot meaner than that) =/ I took some convincing but was fairly quick to accept this fact.

I have 3 kids, so I am very prone to sudden bouts of afking without notice, which I've learned is a very undesirable trait. Apparently people do not like it when their dps afks in fire, or lets their pet run wild while they are outside on a smoke break and (forget to come back) and the pet wipes the group. I also have major commitment issues and learned really early on that guilds expect people to commit to things with specific days and times. Forget about them or blow them off a few dozen times in a row and they seem to get their panties all in a wad over it, so I do not raid, I do not do heroics (or any group activities). I mostly stayed out of guilds until Cata when I felt I had to be in one just not to be gimped on everything from extra xp to xtra gold etc. But they server xferred along with some other guilds because I might have mentioned this before but my server is a bit, well it's small.... and stuff. Now I just own my own guild (thanks to an awesome competitor who bought me one before he quit)

Since I do not raid or partake in most "normal" playing activities, I primarily focus on the AH and occasional achievements/pet collecting etc. But I am probably best at making and spending gold. I make primarily because I like to spend, so the two fuel each other. I'm an underachiever so my only goal was to have a million. I did that a long time ago. Everything over that is spending money which I seem to be quite good at spending.

Hmm I'm rambling. If I remember later I'll edit it so it's a paragraph or less.
I currently live in NY for the last 5 years or so, though I grew up in Southern California and lived in Texas (that's a whole 'nother story!) for 5 yrs before moving to NY. Married for 10 yrs. 2 cats,1 dog.
