Hello, Readers.

We're up to the third installment of our features, and I hope you're all finding the interviews as interesting as we are.

This week has been a brilliant week for pet levelling. Monday is Super Squirt day, so get out and make the most of it if you can. If you're just getting into levelling pets, don't forget you can check out Xu-Fu's Pet Battle Strategies for pet carry teams. It's always hardest when you first start out levelling, but don't get discouraged. You'll get there one day!

I'm finding that I'm not keeping up with my levelling very well this expansion. I just start making progress and then I get more pets to add to my leveling queue. Thank goodness for Rematch's levelling queue. Life is so much easier when you don't have to remember to swap in your levelling pet.

I hope you all have a good week, and good luck with levelling your pets!


Piwakawaka.

The Road To 5!
We're well on our way to the start of our Anniversary celebrations and we continue on towards it including some fun Q&As from some of our longest standing members, our most active members, and our most helpful and generous members.

This week we are featuring:
Team Member OzinLA
&
Team Member FlameFlash

Image

Community Name (and how to pronounce it):
My Community Name is OzinLA. Being not particularly imaginative when it comes to screen names it is quite literal. I'm an Aussie that lives in Los Angeles (ooh, that's a bonus random fact). So Oz in LA. That's how it's said.

How did you find the community? What made you decide to join? And to stick around?
I found the community through the Warcraft Pets post way back in, what was it, 2015? There didn't seem to be any down side to joining, so I did. The people and the acquisition of a trickle of hard-for-me-to-get pets has kept me around.

Where are you most active within the community?
So, as you know I'm on staff. Currently my highest visibility would be in posting the weekly adoption threads to the forum and Discord. Behind the scenes Waka and I are a well-oiled machine that makes sure the A3 bank actually has pets to adopt out.

What’s your favorite battle pet?
I don't really do favorites, and I have 1,118 and counting unique pets to choose from. So it's hard. Tossing a coin and because it's both pretty and supremely useful in the Crysa fight that I just did: Sun Darter Hatchling.

What’s your favorite real life treat?
Favorite real-life treat: Easy - a glass (or two or three) of a good cabernet sauvignon.


What are three random facts about you?
  • I didn't have a pet in real life until I was 31 years old. Now cats are my overlords.
  • I have a PhD in molecular biology, which for some reason impresses folks, but represented just a lot of hard work for many years for me.
  • I'm a bit of a magpie, and if money was no limit, I'd have oodles of jewelry. Smaug might be my spirit animal.


    Random Questions

    Pizza or tacos?
    Pizza.

    Pet peeves?
    I have many, but oblivious/inconsiderate behaviors are probably at the top of that list. For example, people blocking doorways by having conversations right there. Just move down the corridor 3 feet, folks!

    What bends your mind every time you think about it?
    The universe.

Image

Community Name (and how to pronounce it):
FlameFlash (flame and flash)

How did you find the community? Twitter

What made you decide to join? I had no clue what to do with the pet system.
And to stick around? Because these are some awesome people.
Where are you most active within the community?
Forums, Discord, Twitter.

What’s your favorite battle pet?
I'm still not sure I have one. I choose favorite matching ones with each of my characters.

What’s your favorite real life treat?
Minty things of goodness or dark chocolate.

What are three random facts about you?
  • The first time I broke my arm was when I was catapulted off a teeter-totter [see-saw].
  • I have a lot of kids.
  • My family claims I have super-hearing.

    Random Questions

    What’s the best ice cream topping?
    Mint cream and marshmallow syrup.

    What's the last book you gave up on and stopped reading?
    I never have.

    How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
    I'm pretty fast in the morning. I can be dressed and up and out in less than 10 minutes.
