If you could ask Aerythlea anything...
...what would you want to know?

One question I'd ask is: have you changed your eye color to gold?

Oh hey, it's the thread you said I'd ignore if it got posted on EU!

Also, no gold.

Ill go casual average question - Horde or alliance?


Alliance mostly. Though I do have a Horde character I get to max level each expansion just to see that side of things.

do you raid? and if so, do you lead it?


I do raid (infrequently at the moment until BfA comes out). I don't really raid lead any more though. My last stints as a full-time guild leader/raid leader were back in Wrath.

what's your favourite thing to do in game?


I'll get some flak for this but right now it's honestly Pet Battles. Before pre-patch I focused a lot on getting 36/36 on the Mage Tower, but post pre-patch I'm actually diving into Pet Battles which is a system I'd only really dabbled in briefly since Mists came out.

Other than that, I tend to enjoy doing M+ or Random BGs with friends.

How did you end up working for Blizzard?


I went to the Worldwide Invitational in Paris back in 2008. Blizzard Careers had a booth there. I filled out a form, not expecting much to come of it as I couldn't see how my previous experience would apply to Blizzard.

A few months later (I'd completely forgotten I'd even applied by that point) I had a phone call with someone in Blizzard HR, then I was invited to the Cork for some in-person interviews a week later. 2 weeks after that I uprooted my life in London and moved countries to Cork, Ireland to work for Blizzard. Just under 3 years ago I moved to Versailles, France when I joined the WoW Community Team. :) (insert jokes about being a British person in France here)

Are you really an old heavy guy on the bus with a horde tattoo on your right arm?


Damnit... how did you know? ;)

Old content you prefer to play to take a break?


I'm a bit of a mount collector. Although I no longer run stuff week in week out. If I need a bit of a break that's usually the content I go back to, just to roll the dice and try my luck.

Ranged or melee?


Everything. Even in games like Overwatch I tend to be the person who picks last to fill in whatever's needed. WoW's a lot like that for me too, I generally level at least one of each role and switch around as needed.

Do you ever get bored of WoW? My bf was customer service in a gaming company once upon a time but he also checked for bugs. He played nothing but the same games, surely it must get boring if it’s your work AND play?


I wouldn't say I ever get completely bored but there's definitely times I play WoW less. I usually use those times to catch-up on single-player games I've missed, or TV shows I need to catch-up on.

Aerythlea, who's your favourite blue poster among us all?

A correct answer would result in a free coffee and muffin of your choice when we next have a chance to meet up! :)

Ran into some time, so figured I'd answer a few more. :)

Do you also think Arthas was right? #ArthasWasRight


Right about what? Arthas did a lot of things!

Do You have any pets, like dogs/cats/etc.?


No. I would love to have both a dog and a cat (I grew up with 2 dogs, 3 cats and a hamster so I'm used to having pets around) but my current apartment is pretty small and I'd feel bad about leaving any animal cooped up in there all day long.

How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?


I cheated and googled this, apparently it's ~252.

Gnomes or Goblins?


Or.

Do you play on Argent Dawn?


I do not. I did briefly for a few weeks during Warlords of Draenor but that was a short-lived thing (mainly due to not enjoying the class I was playing at the time as much as my main).

Everyone is avoiding the controversial question...

Do you believe Pineapple belongs on Pizza?


The only correct Pizza is a Pepperoni Pizza.

Why such a complicated name? How is that meant to be spelled?


It's spelled Aerythlea. One of the rules when I joined the community team was that our forum avatar names could not have any (or only very few) hits on search engines. This is why, throughout the years, so many Blues have had very difficult to pronounce names!

Hey

Do you stay away from the voodoo often ?


Considering I check the forums regularly during my work day... no? :p

High elves should be added to aliance. Agree or disagree?


Personally, I would like it. But at the same time both factions have 2 elf variants now, so I'm not against seeing something different either.
Currently Ranked: Fluff
