Fresh Meat N' Greet - Atanatar#1983

Wizard
The world of Sanctuary is a BIG place, defended by hundreds of thousands of heroes each and every day. To help you get to know some of these fellow nephalem a little better, we've created the Fresh Meat N' Greet.

The Fresh Meet N' Greet is a recurring series of interviews featuring you, our community. A few times each month, we'll sit down and chat with six different community members, one for each class, and then post our Q&As right here in these forums.

Up this week for Wizards: Atanatar#1983

Read on below to find out more about your fellow ally in battle!

General Info

Who's Up Next?
[GENERAL INFO]

Grimiku: Tell us a bit about yourself.

Atanatar#1983: I'm Atanatar, I've been playing/watching Blizzard games since the age of, oh, 6 or so, watching my Uncle play Starcraft. Ever since then, I've been addicted to Blizzard games.


Grimiku: Got any cool hobbies or talents?

Atanatar#1983: The only thing i'd consider a hobby would be tinkering with computers. Repaired them for a number of years, and enjoy the satisfaction I get from doing so.


Grimiku: What is your history as a gamer, and with the Diablo franchise?

Atanatar#1983: First game I really played would be Doom in the mid 90's, around the age of 5. Stuck with FPS's until I got my hands on the Diablo, Starcraft, and Warcraft Battle chests at the age of 12-13.


Grimiku: What are some of your favorite games?

Atanatar#1983: Currently playing through Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2. Also love all Paradox Interactive games; I have a Jewish Khazaria run in Crusader Kings 2.


Grimiku: Are you playing any other classes right now?

Atanatar#1983: Not really. I occasionally play around on my Witch Doctor and Crusader, but they have never been geared. Too much in love with the Wizard Class.


Grimiku: Are you in a clan? If yes, tell us about it!

Atanatar#1983: I'm in The Vizjerei, but if you want a better run down of that clan, you can look back at some of the other Meet N' Greet's. Personally, I'd like to take the time to give a shout out to Fire. I don't think they get enough love, personally.


Grimiku: What's your most embarrassing moment while playing?

Atanatar#1983: Oh jesus. Selling a damn near perfect double resist Inna's helm in the AH days for far less than what it should have sold for. Ditto for a strength Mempo.


Grimiku: Okay, what about your most AWESOME moment while playing?

Atanatar#1983: Anytime I get to play with my clan, and chat in mumble. It's essentially just a bad !@# podcast.
[I'M JUST WARMING UP]

Grimiku: What drew you to the Wizard?

Atanatar#1983: I missed my Orb Sorc from Diablo 2, and seeing the preview trailers for the Wizard class featuring slow time sold me then and there.
Also, I played Ret Paladin in World of Warcraft from release to cata. Something about being the red headed step child class appeals to me.


Grimiku: In displaying your battle prowess, do you prefer to burn, electrocute, or freeze your foes? Or do you prefer a mixture of destructive elemental energies?

Atanatar#1983: Love cold skills, always have. So pleased to have Delsere's give me that magic back.


Grimiku: What's your favorite skill (or skill rune), and why?

Atanatar#1983: Frozen Orb, easily. The nostalgia factor, and it's a visually pleasing skill with some skill involved to use.


Grimiku: What build are you running currently?

Atanatar#1983: Frozen Orb on my Delsere's Wizard, and some Tal's variant on my other.


Grimiku: Is there a particular item you’re after, and how would it change the way you play if you found it?

Atanatar#1983: I actually haven't found any Nilfur's yet. The possibilities that would open up is obscene.


Grimiku: If there was one thing you could change about the Wizard, what would it be?

Atanatar#1983: Proc Coefficients.


Grimiku: If you could build a set and/or Legendary item around a skill, what skill would it be and how would you support it?

Atanatar#1983: Shock Pulse, hands down. Either increasing the range and/or speed coefficient would make it a more viable skill to use.


Grimiku: Pick a Wizard quote!

Atanatar#1983: "Do you know who I am?"


Grimiku: Name one piece of advice that you think every Wizard should know.

Atanatar#1983: Always assume you're wrong on the first pass, and double check your claims.
[WHO'S NEXT?]

Grimiku: Which of your fellow Wizards should we also interview?

Atanatar#1983: Hub#1983


Grimiku: Pick a question to ask in the next interview:

Atanatar#1983: "What's your favored Whiskey?"


Grimiku: Pensfan080#1647 asks: "What is one aspect of the game you'd like to replace/remove/fix.

Atanatar#1983: For me it's trials and trial frags. I do not like speeding through T6 in 45 seconds just to get a trial key so I can enter a greater rift."
Honestly, the game is on a fairly good path at the moment.
That said, Proc Coefficients.


Got any questions for Atanatar#1983? Post them below!
Is it true that you like bananas, Bananatar?
Nice interview Atanatar. :)
I see they didn't forget about you after all!!! In turn, that means I still get my shot.

Nice interview man, and I appreciate you choosing me for the next Meat N' Greet. I've been wanting to do an interview ever since they started doing them. Sometime when you are on I need to ask you some computer questions.
Great interview from a fellow Texan!

1. Are you a summer or winter kind of guy?

2. If you could sit down, and have a chat with anyone in Viz in person, who would it be and why?

3. PS4, XB1 or PC?

4. If you had the choice of world peace or two million dollars, what color Lamborghini would you pick?

5. If a zombie apocalypse were to happen right now, how long do you think you would survive for?
@ Atanatar:

If what you are touching with your left hand suddenly disappeared, how would you be affected?

Love bananas :D Great source of Potassium. I tend to get muscle spasms fairly easily, and they tend to resolve it right quick.

Winter. Knowing Texas as we do, I'd rather deal with bearable cold over hellacious summers

2. If you could sit down, and have a chat with anyone in Viz in person, who would it be and why?


Melkor, followed by Dolynick and Kanjihack.

Melkor and I, huge LotR nerds, and we play off each other well in Mumble. He's from New York, I'm Sassy and Gay. It's like peanut butter and chocolate, laced with sarcasm.

3. PS4, XB1 or PC?


I've been a proud member of the PC master race since I've been a little kid xD

4. If you had the choice of world peace or two million dollars, what color Lamborghini would you pick?


Electric blue.

5. If a zombie apocalypse were to happen right now, how long do you think you would survive for?


Not long at all. Best I can say is I have my cardio down.

Well, my lower jaw would be gone. That would make eating a rather depressing affair.

No, my Ego has a dedicated support staff to summarize these things for me, and relay my wishes.
And, to update on my interview: Found Nilfurs, they're not great. Still better than nothing. I've since gravitated to Delrasha as my go to spec; it's different enough to appeal to me over the Hydra specs, which have been reigning champs since Firebird days.

I've finished my Dragon Age: Origins playthrough, and about midway through Dragon Age 2. Unfortunately, Heroes of the Storm has sucked every iota of my free time. Damned good game.
Good interview, and nice to see some love for <Fire> [li][/li]
<Fire> who?

Thanks Melk. It still startles me when I sit back and think about how much I've actually played this game and read these forums. All things considered, the reading the forum part and enjoying my time here impresses me the most. My prior experience with Blizzard forums were the Original Battle.net forums, and the World of Warcraft forums from launch till about WotLK.
