Get to know Babyhits in our April edition of spotlight on PI!
Babyhits (aka Kristen) is a relatively new member of the guild and has been a wonderful addition to our raiding core. She's played a wide variety of toons, loves to eat, and works in a milk tea shop!
Check out the interview and be sure to say hello to Kristen if you see her around in game! Maybe she'll send you some free tea!!! Probably not though...
When did you start playing WoW and how did you get into the game?
I started playing around mid 2007, on and off since then. My best friend and I used to play all sorts of computer/video games together and she introduced the game to me.
What was your first toon?
I played a shadow priest back when they were considered support classes for mana regeneration. So glad they changed that.
As a newer member of PI, what things about the guild particularly made an impression on you? (Good/bad)
Nobody yells. Nobody calls people out, at least in raid because everything is said in whispers. People are given a lot more chances.
Someone will always answer you in guild chat, that's something I don't see in a lot of guilds. Like most people tend to ignore non raiders or just not care.
What is your favorite boss encounter?
Ultraxion. Ultra lazy mode.
What is your favorite raid instance?
Mount Hyjal. Tanking the waves was fun. Nothing better than the trash coming to you!
What is your favorite raid boss emote?
I don't really pay attention to that, plus I play without sound, but my friend told me to look up Lei Shi and I found her voice hilarious.
If given the opportunity, what ability would you add to your class? (feel free to be as nonsensical as your heart desires)
After doing Jikun, I think it'd be really cool if my char could fly for like..seven or so seconds, although probably not super useful lol, but cool.
Who is your favorite guildie?
Yultiffany? lol. I don't have a favorite exactly, everybody is pretty chill.
Best and worst things about being a raider?
Best things would be downing bosses and competing in dps against certain people who know who they are ^_^. Worst things would be how frustrating it sometimes can be.
Where does your toon name come from?
Haha WELLLL..back in my early college years, I used to take part in some..recreational activities. I met up with some WoW friends on Ner'zhul on a trip to LA and one of them said I took "baby hits". So when I transferred my toon back to Ner'zhul I took advantage of the free name change.
Tell us about one great WoW memory you have.
I used to pvp a lot in Cataclysm as a DK with friends and there was this one really close WSG game where it was 2-2 and our flag carrier was really close to capping but it was really chaotic in the flag room. Some alliance was about to grab the flag before we could cap but I ended up gripping him at the last second and we won ;D. I enjoy the really clutch moments in battlegrounds, like capping at the last second, or ninja-ing towers.
Describe your raiding/play style in WoW.
Do the best I can I guess. I'm not sure what else to put here. I turn on music when we wipe a lot to keep from saying mean things lol.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of game?
Eat. Chill with friends mostly, do random stuff. I haven't been keeping up with old hobbies due to lack of time. Oh I also like to online shop.
What do you do for a living and/or what do you study in school?
I'm in the process of changing my major to Computer Engineering from Animation. I work in a milk tea shop to pay for my expensive eating/shopping habits.
What is your favorite food? Favorite drink?
Pearl milk green tea! Minus the pearls. As for alcoholic drinks, whatever you make with peach, vodka, and sprite! I don't know if there's a name for it. My favorite food would probably be…sushi..or Mongolian hot pot, if anyone has had Little Sheep, that place is bomb. Ramen is good too and burritos. I like a lot of things.
Tell us about one great RL memory you have.
This may be boring but I don't really have one great memory. I'm the kind of person who doesn't get super excited, most events have the same level of 'fun', not to mention my memory sucks and nothing comes to mind. It took too long to even think of a WoW one lol. I suppose getting into college was nice.
Two truths and a lie.
I like One Direction.
I enjoy cooking.
Yultiffany is my girlfriend.
Do you have any pets?
No. I used to have a parakeet (the lavender one), and a lovebird, but that was a long time ago. My parents are not pet people and I wouldn't want to take care of one. I only like playing with them, dogs specifically.
Anything you’d like to add?
When I get frustrated, I tend to make side comments without really thinking them through, but I've been trying to tone it down. I'm used to different raiding standards and when it's clear that people aren't prepared or weren't paying attention/listening, raiding feels like a waste of time.
Also I'd like to apologize in advance for any future disconnects or lag spikes. That's normally the reason for my deaths. My internet is pretty basic and even if someone googles something it will lag a little.
