Hello, fellow hunters!
I am Gavendo, a Worgen Hunter residing on The Venture Co (EU).
I started playing just after the release of Wrath of the Lich King. My first character was a Warrior, which I quickly realized I didn’t enjoy and thus made a second character, a hunter. I leveled all the way up to the level cap for the first time in about 3 months and quickly got into raiding. I started raiding as Beast Master which was my leveling spec but realized I was at a huge disadvantage and switched to Marksman and never looked back. I was a big noob at first but found my place in the guild Veneficus Ex, which I’ve been in ever since. We were pretty casual at first but slowly grew more serious over time and was able to clear all normal difficulty raids during WotLK expansion and most of the heroic modes (10/12 in Icecrown Citadel 25-man and 12/12 in 10-man for example). Later on during Cataclysm we had to downsize and have been mainly doing 10-man since Tier 11. But as a 10-man group we have cleared heroic modes for; Firelands 6/7 & Dragon Soul 8/8 – all when it was current tier content. During the last three years I’ve been a raider, a raid leader, a masterlooter, a webmaster and a guild officer.
On top of this, I’ve been a crazy achievement hunter ever since I started leveling. I, for example, got “the Explorer” title before I hit the level cap and had more achievements points than most level 80 characters did at that point. I’m currently sitting at over 14 400 achievement points with most categories mostly complete, except for Dungeons & Raids and Player vs. Player. Some notable achievements include Insane in the Membrane (Nov, 2010), Hero of Shattrath (June, 2010) and Mountain o’ Mounts (Nov, 2009). You can find my story on how I obtained “the Insane” here.
I started this blog to share my knowledge and opinions with random web citizens so you can partake my wisdom!… Well, mostly just so I have another outlet than my girlfriend, who is sick of hearing about my tales of glory in World of Warcraft.
