on most gaming platforms or communities I’m known as Nogamara or Armagon.
When I started blogging about games I used to play mostly WoW (with too many alts) on EU-Aggramar (then I moved my main to Chamber of Aspects to continue raiding in Pandaria, then came back in Legion). In spring 2014 I stopped playing WoW as my main MMO, then came back for WoD and Legion for a while. Since later in Battle for Azeroth I’m playing actively again.
The first games I played were Sim City and King’s Quest in the mid-90s. I am not a console gamer, but I’ve had a SNES, got a GBA in late 2002 and an XBox 360 in late 2010 but it’s hardly used except for Rock Band and streaming. I liked Skylanders and some LEGO games though.
I’m being told I rant a lot. That is mostly true.
I never said this blog was only about MMOs, but my non-MMO gaming exploits these days can be summarized as “laughably small”. I think most people sunk more time into GTA V than I spend playing non-MMOs in a typical year. Make that 30-40h?
I’m only updating this page every few months or years, so it will absolutely only be a rough snapshot 🙂

EVE Online Characters
Well, somehow this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in a game without levels or classes?
I have an older highsec character that specializes in Mining and Gallente ships (I <3 Drones) and a younger nullsec character that used to be in a big alliance.
I’ve always had a goal of having every class at max level. Until Cataclysm I had failed.
- Vanilla: 60 Orc Rogue and 53 Tauren Druid, nothing else over 30
- TBC: My 70s were Orc Rogue, Tauren Druid, Troll Warrior, Blood Elf Warlock, Orc Shaman, Human Rogue.
- WotLK: My 80s were Orc Rogue, Troll Warrior, Tauren Druid, Orc Shaman, Blood Elf Priest, Undead Mage, Blood Elf Paladin, Orc Hunter and another Human Rogue (hey, it’s Alliance!). Those who never made it to 80 on time were a 73 Undead DK and a 78 Blood Elf Warlock.
- Cata: All done! (With a second Rogue and Warrior at 85, second Hunter at 80, third Warrior at 60, third Rogue at 41)
- MoP: All classes at 90 besides Pandaren Monk (85). Backup characters: Rogues (90 Human, 90 Gnome, 41 Night Elf), Warriors (90 Night Elf, 85 Goblin), Hunter (80 Troll), Shaman (80 Dwarf)
- WoD: Level 100: Rogue, Warrior, Shaman, Priest. Rest unchanged from MoP.
- Legion: Level 110: Shaman, Rogue, Warrior, Hunter, Warlock, Demon Hunter, Paladin (and 7 more at 100+, again everything except Monk)
- BfA: Now this escalated a little and due to Heirlooms, time, and having fun the goal was changed to “1 per class per faction”
- Rogue: Orc, Human, Gnome
- Shaman: Orc, Dwarf
- Warrior: Troll, Night Elf
- Paladin: Dwarf, Blood Elf
- Druid: Worgen, Tauren
- Demon Hunter: Night Elf, Blood Elf
- Warlock: Blood Elf
- Mage: Undead
- Death Knight: Undead
- Monk: Pandaren
- Priest: Blood Elf
- Hunter: Orc, Dwarf
As you can see, I like playing Orcs. As you can’t see, I don’t like playing Blood Elves, but they just… happened. I started the (Female) Warlock in the first or second week of TBC. Hey, new race! Then I started the Priest (Male this time) together with my girlfriend’s Female Blood Elf Priest. And I don’t like Trolls in dresses. Finally, there was no other choice for my Paladin. Been thinking about race changing the Paladin to Tauren and Priest to… anything, really – but I’m too cheap to buckle up the money.
At early level 60 I only ever did PvP (up to rank 11) and only then went to Raiding.
- Vanilla: ZG, AQ20, started with MC, then TBC hit.
- TBC: Karazhan, Gruul, Magtheridon, TK, SSC, MH, BT – no SWP sadly.
- WotLK: Then it was Naxx25, Naxx10, Ulduar10 (no Algalon), Ulduar25 (first 4), ToC10+ToC25 (all on normal), Hc ICC 10
- Cata: Cleared Hc Blackwing Descent, 1/5 Hc BoT, Hc TFW, nearly killed Ragnaros in Hc FL, then went 4/8 Hc DS.
- MoP: MSV, HoF and TES cleared on normal, then in the new guild 2/12 Hc ToT and 9/14 Mythic SoO.
- WoD: No raiding
- Legion: No raiding
- BFA: No raiding
Final Fantasy XIV characters:
I was pretty happy to see that I can be all the classes on one character. I play a Female Miqo’te on Omega on the European Data Center (Chaos). My original focus was Bard, Warrior, White Mage.
Other MMOs I played:
- Ragnarok Online, a few years on euRO Chaos with an 8x Rogue <3, 9x Bard (with no build, levelled solo on Geos), 8x Falcon Hunter (totally skilled in a wrong way), and a lot of max. 7x chars: Battle Priest, Holy Priest, Assassin, Baby AGI Knight, Battle Blacksmith, Alchemist. Came back for a month on fRO and iRO Restart each.
- LotRO, a few lowbie chars on DE-Morthond
- Runes of Magic, but I hated it (Avalan, 55 Druid/52 Scout on Draiochta)
- Anarchy Online, but I don’t remember much
- Marvel Heroes, started around Christmas 2014 and played on and off until it shut down
- TESO (as of summer 2017, barely started levelling a Khajiit Nightblade)
Other MMOs that always interested me but I haven’t tried (yet):
FF XIV (very much)started playing in 2019!
- The Secret World (a bit)
- Rift (kind of, but not so much)
- Crowfall (will it even ship?)
