Shammy bear and other news

Hubby and I stayed up until 3am last night…3AM!!!  Oh hell!

We got our toons to 85 though and then ran a couple of dungeons on them.

It is a little exciting, but my shammy is now 85!  His pally is also 85!

This makes it my 5th toon to max and his 3rd, with his druid about 30% left to 85 he is certainly catching me up.

I have really enjoyed just running around and playing with him to be honest, I miss it when he is not playing and I find immense satisfaction in us doing this together.

We chased a few achievements last night after we hit 85 since we were in the area.  I really have to fix that mod!!

Twilight quests complete

King of the mountain

I was going to make this a separate post, but then decided to shove it all in one as I am talking about him now anyway it seemed a fitting place to just continue on.  I have found the solution to my guild woes, I have joined a guild – wasn’t that fast?

My hubby has created a guild!  He is currently deciding on a few details at the moment, and it is early stages, but he has been thinking about doing this for a while now. He was one of the GM’s back in the day with out first first guild, so he is well familiar with the running of a guild and he is a no nonsense kind of guy with a very level head.

I am excited because my hubby is not the type to let people who can’t play stay as raiders.  He is an awesome player and to be fair all of our friends are very good players as well, so he has very little tolerance for people not being able to play their class well, I think I am excited most because he is such an eloquent person when he wants to be, I think finding a great team is not going to be easy, but if anyone can pull it off – he can.

So, with the above occurring, I have moved my mage over to be in his guild and left my other toons on AT for the moment, really only because the amounts add up when moving multiple toons around.  I am yet too pin him down as to raiding days etc, but I have gleaned that we will have loot rules (yay!) and more than likely suicide kings, I would say and it looks like only 2 days raiding at this stage for 3 hours…so maybe wed and Sun from 7/7.30 until 10/10.30 pm AEST – but this is all just rough as guts at the moment.

The new ME!

So one of the reasons we were up so late, was trying to get guild rep and experience etc to help get the guild started up – we got 22% through the first level, so that is a good sign if we can continue in the fashion 🙂  We are going to bring over our hunters next week (perhaps) as they are almost 70 and to level them to 85 would be a massive injection of guild experience. We are also going to finish questing in both Vashj and Uldum for the cash as we did neither of them whilst levelling 🙂  Extra Cash!!!

So if anyone has toons they want to stick into the guild on Nagrand – please feel free!  We won’t mind the levelling boost and I won’t mind the company whilst I level, quest and generally try and get some guild rep and experience happening.

Wish us luck, in the world of constant guilds being created we don’t want to just be another one, fingers crossed.

Just chilling out

My rogue is level 17 🙂 Highest level rogue by miles now. Still not sure if i enjoy it, although it has grown on me since hitting 15 and being able to run dungeons. The fact that I am top on dps helps. I won’t discuss any further the horrific LFD runs at that low level – suffice it to say…I think I had the deserter buff more than I was in a run.

Not sure if I mentioned this, but hubby joined frosties on his druid and is now 83. We are still new and feeling a little like outsiders – but that happens with every guild, but so far I love the sense of humour in the guild. They have me giggling a fair bit when I am online. I actually find I am wanting to log onto my dath toons, wishing my AT toons were there…I really do enjoy the people…when they are chatting. I would say 60% of the time guild chat is pretty quiet.

It is fun running dungeons with hubby healing me as I tank. Two more levels and we can start doing heroics, after all, I am only getting 13g for every run, I don’t mind though as it is only costing me about 2g repairs since I am not even close to dying, but I would like to be getting some JP/VP and not just coin.

We may move our other horde toons over, but it really isn’t important at this stage – it would just be nice to have other toons with maxxed professions (or close to max) that can aid us. We have discovered that Dath has a crappy AH…there is not much on there and anything that is on there is so uber expensive compared to what we are used to on Aman’thul. That decision will likely be made on Friday – but I would want to bring both with me…hunter and shammy, he would bring pally and hunter. Decisions, Decisions.

Onto some other news, which I have yet to tell my GM about, I will be breaking the news to him tonight. It looks like in my bid to get healthier, I will be starting karate in a fortnight. Their 2 training days happen to be the same days we raid. I will now only be available to raid on Sundays with them and that means I am not likely going to be raid leading for them in MoP, of course, we don’t have a date for MoP, and i can’t tell the future…but it is not looking hopeful.

Level 70 Priesticle!

 

Well she is 72 now, but I thought I should post her progress 🙂

I am a fail priest!  I do not really get the Shadow priest play style. My husband is devastated i am finding it so hard given he plays one very well.

He has been trying to teach me, and I am picking it up slowly.  It is hard to tell how well i am actually doing because my gear is so bad. I handed in some quests last night and the ilevel was bout 100 points different.  I did see a boost in DPS with just 3 pieces replaced.

Since we haven’t played our horde toons in a while I had to find another toon to level and that ended up being my priest. I would like to get my shammy finished since she is soooo close to 85!

Anyway I am having fun and that is the main thing.  I wonder how many toons I can get to 85 by the time MoP comes out. The way I am going I will have my priest, shammy and hunter done.  Then to consider the elusive lock, rogue and DK…not really sure I can level any of them to 85…heheh

 

Shammy is 80 :)

Pretty excited about both my toons at the moment, my shammy cracked 80 today!!!

I am so excited to be actually seeing her levelled as I knew she was feeling very neglected sitting at the Bornean tundra doing nothing.

Hubby and I will hopefully have those guys finished in a fortnight. He has been enjoying levelling his pally so it has been enjoyable for both of us.

My priest also hit 60 the other day, which was exciting. For some reason I always feel that 60 is the halfway point in levelling, I get excited when I hit that hurdle 🙂

I am playing her at work for the most part as I have nothing else to do, I spend most of my Monday doing all the work I need to do and then just cruise for the rest of it.

I am pretty excited by the progress I am making on my toons!

Shamtastic!

After negelcting my shammy so long ago in Valiance keep, I cannot really remember when I seriously played her last. Recently though, hubby has decided he wanted to level his pally who was only 5 levels below my shammy.  So he got his pally to 70 and i moved my shammy horde to be with him and we set off on adventure.

I was planning on going resto so we were a duo for dungeons, however, I had absolutely no gear whatsoever for healing, I will try and get some together one i get to 80, I am enhancement in the meantime.  Anyone that has played an enhance shammy for a while will know we used to be based on strength as a stat, and it changed to agility in wrath (i think – please correct me).  Anyway I would say 50% of my gear was old strength gear 🙂 Just to give you an idea of the last time I played her.

I have been having fun just running dungeons with the hubby and doing nothing aside from levelling and just enjoying the game 😀

She is currently 78 and maybe my the end of this easter break she will be 80 🙂

Isn't she lovely?!

Level 70 Shammy!!!

YAYAYYAAYAYYA!!

Shammy is finally level 70!

Got my fire boy and heroism!!

GRATS TO ME!!

I was already in Northrend I went there when I was 68 and I have been having the worst time of it, partly because I really can’t describe how much I hate BOTH of the starting areas in Northrend….I really dislike both areas, so it has taken me a very very long time to keep doing anything whilst there.  I might just run some instances as much as possible so I can skip to 73 😀 eheheh

Alt time :)

My poor alts have been neglected until recently.  I have been playing them a fair bit which is so much fun. I can see why people like having alts  🙂

My warrior has been running heroics as much as possible, I picked up 2 pieces of Tier gear with my triumphs and so am starting to get her better geared. I picked up the pieces that repalced current blues to ensure better overall upgrades. 

I am getting better at tanking and am offering to run them as much as possible as tank, I am still a little slow on picking up loose mobs, but i think some of that is that I can’t see the loose mobs when my FPS start to go ballistic, and being a tank I am right in the thick of it, on top of the fact I sometimes get lost in the button smashing 🙂 heh  But I am getting there, I need more stam and I need to get my gear enchanted….which I haven’t done.

I have also started levelling her mining again and her blacksmithing. Nowhere near finisihed yet, but at least I am making an effort 😀  She is let’s say – 50% through both of them.

My shammy is stagnating at 68 waiting for the hubby to get his pally to the same level so we can level through Northrend together.  So I have taken her back to the starting areas to level her skinning and herbalism, I am hoping to be at the northrend level so whilst levelling I can get all gathering done as well and make some money off it.  We shodul be getting started on them soon, which is cool.

My priest, is now level 30 and she is going to be an enchanter/JC, I have not started either of her professions, I should start now though so i can send her everything from my other toons as I go.  I am just running her through dungeons at the moment with the random thing and levelling that way when i get some time on her.  I actually chose skinning/herbalism for her then realised I had my shammy with those two professions, so I had to find others for her to do 😀

My druid is on hold now, until Cataclysm – I want a worgen druid and I am nto going to level the same class twice 🙂  So she is just a place holder for the minute, I will be making her a LW – and not sure what else at this stage – maybe engineer 😀  So I might make her a guild bank of her own so I can start stocking stuff etc for all my levelling of professions.  No point selling all the lower level leathers, if my druid will use them later, so I just want to store them basically, same with all the gems etc

My pally hasn’t been logged into for about  months, I am considering just transferring her over to the alliance side.  I like my Pally and I miss not being able to play her. I would like to get some healing experience on her. Then I will have all bases covered, healing/tanking and DPSing 🙂 eheh

Nubism at its best

So i was running around on my shammy today and wondered why i couldnt drop any totems.  Stupid me left them in the bacnk thinking we didn’t need to carry them around with us anymore…but um…apparently not, that is only if you have a relic in slot which acts as the totems.

What’s worse is that I still haven’t yet taken them out of the damn bank!!
