About Me

Amijade – your self-taught and self-proclaimed Dark Arts Motivational Speaker (a.k.a., The Duchess of Death), can be found on the US-Earthen Ring server as proud member of The Forsaken. She has earned a Master’s Degree in Alchemy from the Royal Apothecary Society of Undercity and green-thumb (literally) from her side full-time job hobby of picking flowers.  In her spare time, she can be found reading everything in sight or fishing for Twilight Guppies in the northwestern parts of Twilight Highlands. She doesn’t cook because it’s both beneath her and something a mage would do. She’s a faithful and dutiful member of the Alea Iacta Est – Verendus guild and is a huge fan of all things warlockery and warlock-y. Currently, she runs with both Affliction and Destruction specializations depending on her foul mood and how she prefers to have her victims suffer.  

Hanging out with a Warhorse

I should be on my Dreadsteed but it just was too bright for the picture sadly and took away from the windmill.

I’ve been a WoW player since Vanilla and I currently run with three toons:  my hunter, my lock and my shaman.  Sadly, Warlocking has taken a back to seat to healing for my raid team so my ‘lock is on the sidelines for now; however, she’s still my favorite toon to play. I love to heal on my shaman and there is nothing as fun as camping a rare pet or kiting an enemy on my hunter, but warlocks have always had a soft spot in my heart. To me, warlocks are a great class despite their ping-pong in popularity and all the buffs & nerfs they have experienced over the years. Like many warlocks, I still leave a candle at the vigil for “Drain Mana” and my cold heart yearns for “Drain Tanking” to come back.

 I became hooked on my warlock the first time I ran her in WSG.  I kept running into a very annoying mage and for some reason he would always just try to just kill me and no one else.  Jealousy?  Well I am a warlock, and an imposing fearsome figure to meet so I can only assume jealousy was the reason.  Between my DoTs, slowly poking him with my dagger and my cute little Felpuppy chomping on him from behind (and on his behind) this poor player never stood a chance at surviving.  Muahahahaha! It was so much fun! I filled my entire bag with his soulshards that day and how can you not love that? 

Why am I starting this blog? For fun? For glory? To rule the world? Well, I don’t see myself becoming famous writing a warlock WoW blog anytime soon. So, my only guess would be I’m simply enjoying the journey of learning about blogging and relaxing by writing. My inspiration came from having read great blog authors over the years and from listening to The Twisted Nether Blogcast.  I highly recommend you find time to go visit the TNB, and start clicking around and begin reading whatever sparks your curiosity. You won’t regret it. 

Whether this blog turns out as a fail or a win, I’ll take my chances and cast the dice anyway.  I am very new to blogging and I’m far from a good writer. So please, be kind and keep that in mind.  Blogging and writing is a learning process for me and I do plan to get better. It may take me a while to find my inner-writing voice and what I truly want to say. Hopefully, it will get better and you will want to come back. I plan to start posting pictures as well, once I find a decent program for cropping and enhancing images. If you find a spelling or grammar mistake please call me out on it. Often, it is only through our mistakes that one can licit great wisdom. So any help in matters of better grammar is welcome. 

Love me or hate me…Thanks for reading.

My Best,

    The overview of Affliction in Beta was terrific. Thanks. You are right up there with Cynwise and Vixsin (lifeingroup5.com)

    • Hi Shimoda,

      Omg! Thanks for the compliment. However, it’s hard for me to consider myself up there in that group by a long shot. By now, my overview of Affliction in Beta is probably outdated.

      They were making so many changes at the time, I quit reporting on specifics because it would change so much from build to build. However, now that 5.0.04 is here…I’m sure we’ll all get used to the play style that is set in stone.

      Thanks for the kind words and thanks for stopping by!

      My best!

    I really like your site! So happy I stumbled upon it! Hope you still play, I’m going to realid you, maybe we can run some heroics or something!

    • Hi Will,

      Thanks! I’m glad you like the site. I think it’s more about my ramblings than anything else :) I’m having fun and hopefully I’m motivating others to see the fun in running a ‘lock toon. It’s such a great class. Yes, it’s had problems I know…but don’t they all to some degree? Maybe that’s just my opinion…

  3. Hey, Amijade. A Born Again Warlock here. I run a Hunter as may main and yes, I have a Mage as well, but this Warlock has been around since Vanilla. Rhiadana even had a blog on Warlock’s Den lo these many moons past. She did the dreadsteed quest when it was HARD.

    Anyway, I acknowledge that it was YOUR segment on the Instance (also Convert to Raid?) that provoked me into playing her again. Now She’s my main again, laying waste to..er.. the wastes..

    I’m running the opposite of you.. Destro main with Affliction offspec. In 5-mans, I’m finding that the speed that stuff dies doesn’t really allow Afflic to shine, whereas with Destro at least I feel like I’m contributing.

    Anyway, thanks again for the prod to get me going again.

    • Hey Barry,

      Well I think you can say we all are “born again” locks to a large degree with the overhaul Blzzard gave us, and I really appreciate the kind words and support you offer.

      My only goal in making this site and doing something as crazy as making my 2 minute spots was to hopefully point out why I always believed the class was fun to play.

      Comments and emails like yours really makes my day! Have fun on your Destro and I’m sure you’re lighting things up! If you run your lock in raiding I’d be curious as to hear how you like it.

      Thanks for stopping by and for commenting!
