I just realized that the kitties play WoW like me and my fiancee! I run the keyboard for casting spells and talking, while navigating. She runs the mouse for targeting, moving, and using abilities not on the main cast bar. Sounds overcomplicated, but working as a team we do very good, currently 10/14 Ulduar25, and have a hard time understanding how just one person can do it so well. We have never tanked(Shadow Priest, learning Disc healing), but think it would be tough. Of course we are never distracted by passing squirrels, sometimes our pet ferrets and rats demand our attention, but they need to wait for raid break
Fert’s story trumps any quip I’m going to say. Yep.
Fert, that’s amazing! You should get video of that, both in game and of the two of you. Your story would make for a good interview too.
i like how they simply just stick to the window XD
Moving. Ah, what fun. Wait…no! NO! Waaaahhhhh….I’m gonna miss this comic for a couple of weeks now…oh, well…that’s what the archives are for.
See you in June!
it would not be a very interesting video…mostly just us talking back and forth about what is happening. “Moving” “k””Next to a fire””moving”…etc. It was born out of necessity. My fiancee is disabled and has limited use of her hands, so she types with a pen in her mouth, this makes using the keyboard and mouse at the same time difficult. I am no video game player…I am a navigator, usually following maps and walkthroughs as we play games, but I have gotten good at keeping up a tight spell rotation and adapting to changes mid battle, but I still walk off of cliffs if I have to make us move anywhere. We started playing this way with Neverwinter Nights, but even there I didn’t do much more than type and navigate, she would take care of moving, targeting, clicking to cast, and basically everything else.
In the end the best part of it is that we can be addicted together. There are no WoW widows in this house
Wait, did the kitties just get aggroed?
Wow..that is awesome Fert !
Honestly Fert that would be very cool to document in anyway. I don’t know how you and your fiancee feel about showing this unique skill off, but I think there’s probably a small disabled WoW community that would be really heartened by it. It really does sound like a great story, Blizzard would probably also love to hear about it. Give it a shot, show it to your friends, just to see if you might consider putting it out there. I really hope you do.
I didn’t really think there would be any real interest in it, really, just the normal thing we do. If I had a way to record it, I would. I have thought of contacting WoW.com for their 15 Mins of Fame articles, but at the same time it seems strange to suggest yourself. If anyone has any questions about how we do different things in the game, ask away, I would be glad to answer.
What is the opposite of Multi-Boxing? Semi-Boxing?
Fert. I think it is awesome what you are doing. Your solution to difficult circumstances is very clever.
I have MS, and have difficulty sometimes. I for one would love to see a ‘fifteen minutes of fame’ about you two!
Fert: Consider yourself submitted. Well done.
i think im part cat… i do the same thing sometimes mid raid when i see a rare spawn… >..< you 2 seem to have something truly special <3
Here’s the link to Fert’s interview
