Contrary to some beliefs, I am actually a dude. I just like looking at girl toons (seriously, you should see my toons in nearly any RPG).
I got my start in the Guardian (Feral Bear) community close to the end of Wrath, when Swipe wasn’t doing hardly any damage. Even though Blizzard maintained that it was fine, they actually ended up buffing it in the end. With the launch of the new forum system in Cataclysm I quickly befriended Reesi and she asked me to join TiB shortly thereafter. I’ve been here ever since.
Nowadays I’m trying to gather feedback across the Guardian player base to help improve the spec for everyone. There is no such thing as a “wrong” opinion on how something plays, so I hope people continue express how they feel in a constructive manner. Blizzard tends to ignore trolls.
I also host the Team Waffle Podcast a podcast composed of Druid theorycrafters where we discuss the latest happenings in the Druid world.
In terms of actually playing the game I’m the main tank for a 10m guild on Sargeras called Bear Retirement Home. In real life I’m a business analyst for a software company in the home health care industry. Which strangely enough is exactly like theorycrafting, except in real life.
In 5.4 Blizzard was kind enough to name an item after me: Arielle’s Ancient Legwraps ^.^
