GREETINGS EVERYONE and welcome to the rebooted Get to Know Your Guildies (g2kyg) brought to you by everyone's favorite druid, Growliebear! To start things off, we are going to be getting to know our lovely morale officer Karensa!!


First off, what is your toon's name or what you go by in game?

How long have you been playing WoW? 
Since the beginning of time... (actually since closed beta)

What made you start playing WoW? 
I played Warcraft III, loved the lore, and had the opportunity to play the beta.

What is your favorite race/class/spec? 
Blood elf/Priest/Discipline pre-Legion

What brought you to Darkwind? 
During MoP, my raid guild fell apart, and I decided that it was time to devote my time to more productive pursuits out of game. I created a 'bucket list' of in-game experiences to accomplish, moved to a non-pvp server, and so on. I was around level 30ish when I met a couple of people from Darkwind, and the rest is history.

What is one (or more!) of your favorite memories from WoW? 
I once levitated down the elevator in BRD, aggroing Ony, and having her follow us up the elevator to wipe the raid before they fixed that bug. Falling off the ledge of every instance in the game, making friends and wiping the group; Life-gripping my pocket tank and wiping the.... I detect a theme here.

What is your favorite things to do in game? 
Collect ALL the things.... I love mounts, pets, transmog pieces, weird gray items... Oh look, I have an empty bag slot!

If Blizzard to shut down all servers tomorrow, what game would you be playing? 

Tell us more about yourself outside of the game! What are some of your hobbies or things that you do for fun besides play WoW?
I like tentacles, except not really.

What do you do for your job, or what would you love to do as your job?
I recently returned to school to pursue my dream of becoming a reference librarian.

Describe the coolest place you have ever visited? (outside of the game of course)
Langkawi, Malaysia is a grouping of islands that is one of the most exquisitely beautiful places in the world.

If you were a giant mega monster, what city would you rampage?
Newark, New Jersey for obvious reasons.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Do you have any pets? If so, tell us about them!
It's too soon.

What is your favorite color?
Is this a trick question?

What is your favorite food? (or favorite thing you've ever eaten!)
Manoushe (a Lebanese bread)

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I would indulge more frequently in my love of SCA and rejoin the Rebel Legion.

What are some small things that make your day better?
A steaming cup of Earl Grey and brioche toast with homemade strawberry jam, a good run, Pusheen gifs.

What are some of your favorite TV shows?
Game of Thrones, Madam Secretary, West Wing, Star Trek TNG.

What is the luckiest thing that has happened to you?
I met my significant other on a dark and stormy night in Stormwind Harbor.

Shadram a Sounds like I need to head over to your part of the world and enjoy some homemade nuggets! Thankful for your solidarity...


Meet Hukura! (She's a Warrior)

[Aka: Malfrost (the Mage), Kyukon (the Rogue), Kaireel (the Hunter, shown in photo), and Kaimey (the Death Knight)]

On one toon or another you have probably met Darkwind’s Hukura. He has been with our guild for just about a year and a half by his estimate, but he has been playing World of Warcraft for 10 years!

Ten years is a loooooong time; when asked how he got started playing the game he said “I went to visit my cousin and she told me all about this game my uncle was playing. She had his account information, so we made a character on his account and played for HOURS! After that… I was pretty much hooked.”

Although in 10 years Hukura hasn’t lost interest in the game, he claims he gets bored easily… which is why he has so many level 100s. This is also why, depending on when you met our friend and guild mate, you may want to call him by a different name. (For example: I, Joyus, keep wanting to call him Malfrost, his main for most of MoP).

He clearly has a lot of experience playing multiple classes, so I asked him what his ultimate favorite class and spec is. He told me “Although I don’t play it often, I really like to play beast mastery hunters. You can solo lots of stuff.” (Kaireel, in the photo, is such a hunter…at least that’s what Mr. Robot tells me).

Out of all his time playing the game his most memorable experience would have to be raid nights in Vanilla WoW. Eight different guilds would come together to form the 40 man required to get the job done. He tells me “they were really enjoyable people and, while Darkwind is great, your first is always memorable.”

Since coming to Darkwind, Hukura’s favorite thing to do in game is PvP with guildies. What’s his reason? “Just because people actually do things-it’s great!” Perhaps we will see more of him on Friday nights for guild PvP? *wink wink, nudge nudge*

If he could vacation anywhere in game he’d pick the beautiful and scenic Nagrand from Outlands (the BC version… not the WoD version). When I found that out, we did our photo shoot for this article there ;-).

Should a miracle happen and we were able to turn any one in game mount into a real life mount he’d pick the Darkmoon Dancing Bear as his mount of choice. “I love that thing! I worked so hard to get it!”

When not playing WoW, Hukura works retail. He also loves to play Magic the Gathering (“I play every chance I get”), ranked Hearthstone games, and a little bit of League of Legends. His ideal job would be at a game store so he had a reason to talk about Magic more.

So… if you see a toon in “old” Nagrand riding a Darkmoon Dancing Bear and talking in general chat about Magic… chances are it’s Hukura! Give him a high five and a hello the next time you see him online.

*If you would like to be interviewed like this for our next edition of Get to Know Your Guildie, please send a tell or an in game mail to Joyus… or any available officer who will relay your message.*

Jayliin Great interview. I always enjoy the G2KYGs.
