About this blog

Hi, my name is Alexander. I’m 39 years old, and I live in St.Petersburg, Russia with my wife and 2 cats. I have a full-time job optimizing websites for search engines, and my life outside office is devoted to 2 major hobbies:Gift


I have already visited almost every country in Europe, also Turkey, China and Japan: about 100 cities all over the world. I enjoy meeting people, learning about lifestyles and cultures, and feeling the vibe of different cities.


MMORPG is my favorite genre. For 12 years I played WoW as my major leisure pastime, and currently I’m exploring and enjoying the world of Eorzea.


About me and this blog:

1. The blog is devoted only to my gaming experience and my toons’ cool stories in the games I play. No casserole recipes, lolcat pics or what I watched last night on TV.

2. I’m a semi-casual player who enjoys spending evenings and weekends in the world of Eorzea & Azeroth and their stories.

3. I dig the lore. I enjoy questing and achievements.

4. I’m into most casual challenges considering PvE – competitive runs are not my piece of cake. I’m not into PvP at all – it feels like a waste of time to me.

5. I don’t use any addons.

6. I will never pick a talent, a class, or a spec for better numbers – if another one is better in terms of a comfortable and fun gameplay.

7. I’m an altoholic, because every character is a character, not a function.

8. In WoW, I play both the Horde and the Alliance with pleasure – because they unveil their own pieces of lore. It’s always useful and sometimes vital to see another approach to the same events. Still if I had to choose I would definitely join the Alliance.

9. I do not support hateful or scornful speech towards races or factions. There is a very thin line between a joke and an insult, and most people fail to see it.

10. My favorite race in WoW are Gnomes, so that’s why the blog started with the name Gnomecore.
