About Caer Morrighan
By the late twentieth century, our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs. Ths cyborg is our ontology; it gives us our politics. The cyborg is a condensed image of both imagination and material reality, the two joined centres structuring any possibility of historical transformation. – Donna Haraway
Welcome to Caer Morrighan. This blog is written by a long time WoW player who is sometimes holy priest Akandra, sometimes feral druid Enalla, sometimes retribution paladin Morrighan and sometimes someone else entirely. It may not be the most original site in the world, but it seeks to bring together useful information about the classes I play enough to have a clue, raiding, guild management and World of Warcraft in a simple, easy to read style. The intention is that the information here be as extensive or as little as you could need, depending on how much time you have to read and what you are aiming to do.
The blog title comes from one of my character names (Morrighan – named for the Celtic Goddess of battle). Caer means fortress/citadel/castle in Welsh.
RL Morrighan is from the UK and she’s been playing WoW for several years now. She even wrote her MA dissertation on the critical theory of gender and gaming and is interested in the multiplicity of identities the experience of playing a game like WoW brings about. She often plays with her husband, a Blood Death Knight and is mother to a beautiful level one gnome shadow priest. Apart from WoW she likes cats, spreadsheets and Chinese food.
You can contact Caer Morrighan by emailing 13morrighan at google mail dot com. Feel free to drop me a line to push your blog, to suggest posts or other strange things (which must be legal). If you want me to give you my bank account details, buy pharmaceutical products or enlarge anything I probably won’t respond.
The Avatars: World of Warcraft
I am working on getting one of each class to 85. The avatars below are the ones contributing to that. I have others, as a confirmed altaholic.
Level 85 Human Hunter on Darksorrow-EU.
Main spec: Survival
Off spec: Beast Mastery
My current ‘raiding main’. I love playing this toon at the moment and find I really enjoy the rotation. Its a priority rotation, like pre-Disco Rogue retribution, with the added aspect of some resource management.
Level 85 Night Elf priest on Darksorrow-EU.
Main spec: Holy
Off spec: Shadow PvP
I’ve played Akandra since vanilla WoW, and raided with her since The Burning Crusade. She was my main until Wrath of the Lich King and Holy all the way. During Wrath she fell by the way as healing sucked. But with Cataclysm shes healing again and was my main for a while.
Level 85 Drenai paladin on Darksorrow-EU
Main spec: Retribution PvE
Off spec: Tank spec for the sole purpose of soloing stuff for achievements
Morrighan was a tank at Level 70. She tanked Kara and, strangely enough, Mount Hyjal (remember when tankadins were hard to find?). I like tanking, but I tend to yell at people a lot when I tank, so in Wrath of the Lich King she went Ret and still is. Shes my ‘achievement toon’ at the moment.
Level 85 Night Elf druid on Darksorrow-EU.
Main spec: Feral PvE
It took me a while to find the love for Enalla in Wrath and then in Cataclysm. In Wrath she was a double battle chicken in PvE and PvP.
Level 85 Blood Elf Death Knight on Kilrogg-EU.
Guild: Monkey Business
Main spec: Unholy dps
Level 85 Drenai Shaman on Darksorrow-EU.
Main spec: Enhancement
Level 73 Blood Elf Warlock on Darksorrow-EU
Guild: Monkey Business
Main spec: Affliction
The Avatars: Star Wars: The Old Republic
Level 50 Cyborg Sniper (Imperial) on Nightmare Lands (EU).
Guild: Black Sith Coalition
The Avatars: Guild Wars 2
Level 31 Sylvari Mesmer on Blacktide (EU)
Guild: Battle Sworn Coalition
