My warrior makes the cut!

My baby warrior is finally 90!

I have very special feelings for both my mage and my Warrior as they are the same toons I have had since Vanilla, they have gone through moves, changes and factions with me and are the only two characters I have had since then.  My priest was created in BC, and she is the next oldest toon I have.

My warrior started out as a my wait toon, back in the day before btags, when you had to be on a toon that people could see you on to get credit for DKP.  I never really leveled her all that much, I more sat around in the main cities chatting to the guildies that were waiting with me, but I could never let her languish because of that connection I forged with her.

Warrior 90

So she makes the 4th toon to 90 that I have and is now mostly decked out in Timless isle gear already, I had three pieces which I took off my pally (shoulders, legs and boots) and whilst opening chests I found braces, gloves, chest, trinket, helm and ring…not too bad for a about 40 minutes of death…yes I was getting my butt handed to me by all the rares 🙂  I only mention the gear because I found this achievement quite funny when I got rid of one of my rings :

WoWScrnShot_010914_140248

That is for superior items with a minimum of 333 in all slots…That’s where I was at gear wise trying to kill mobs on the Timeless Isles…just think about that for a moment….333!!  Crazy…that is me 🙂

I also laughed when I got this achievement when I landed…Clearly I have no idea how I managed to actually get to 90 doing so few quests??  I must have done dungeons for one levelling period or something??  No idea…

WoWScrnShot_010914_132053

Comparatively my mage has done 7946 quests according to the statitics tab 🙂  I love it!

So deciding what toon to level next?  Shammy who is already 85 or hunter or priest…soo undecided….

Paladin got to the top!!

Woot!  My sexy pally chick made it to 90!!  So happy about that, not only because it means I am max level with the frosties and can actually do stuff with them now, but I also scored a sweet arse achievement, which I was no even aware of previously…I wonder if there are more for getting more toons to 90…I should ask Owl, he has like 11 I think he said…complete nutter!!  I couldn’t do it…some classes are just not suitable playing companions for me 🙂

WoWScrnShot_122813_175052

My last part to 90 was spent in dungeons…strangely, Oom said he would come along and when we tried to sign up with him we couldn’t…the LFD system told me he was too high to do normals, and when Oom tried to sign up it said heroics only.  My guess it is ilevel based?  I have to look into it.  I think it is annoying that max levels can’t sign up for normal dungeons….if that is indeed the case.  So, in the end although others had offered to run some normals with me (and forgotten *cough* *cough*) it wouldn’t have mattered anyway.  I will make them pay with heroics though…”sorry I lost my taunt button???”  <insert evil MUHAHAHAHA here>.

Also hubby brought his druid back to Frosties, figured it was easier as it was already in the guild so just did a guild transfer.  He is slowly levelling, I think he is 88 he said?  I was so focused on getting to 90 I was pretty neglectful 😦  But we ran some dungeons together and that helped him get some xp, so all very useful in the end.

I am terrified of having to get my gear sorted, in fact, I spent some time on the Timeless gathering more gear and I basically have a prot set (armour only) and trying to gather enough coins to buy the shield/weapon.  And I spent all the money I had gemming/chanting it up…I am pretty broke now, but thankfully I got to 90 without setting foot in most of the map, so I will just slowly start questing the areas to open up dailies and get me some money to pay for flasks/repairs.

I did create a bank alt so I can offload stuff to the AH and hopefully that will bring in some cash..but it is a slow burn on that.

I asked the Frostie GM what spec my second should be – I have no immediate plans to raid but if I am online and they are short I would rather have my toon ready for it.  Prot will be her main – always has – but he advised DPS was more an issue than heals.  So Ret she is, with her second set of almost complete timeless isle gear, I spent some time on the dummy and was hitting 32k consistently, with half ret/half prot gear, so I think I can potentially increase that without much effort once I start getting gear.  Of course I am nowhere near the hit cap, and my expertise is short of where it needs to be on either set, but I haven’t upgraded any gear yet  (not enough VP) and some of my gear is still really low level.

For reference hit needs to be 7.5% and expertise 15%  – I am apparently slightly over the hit cap…well bugger me…I was sure I was under, which means I can reforge into expertise now and get that sorted 🙂

 

Merry Winter Veil!

I hope everyone enjoyed whatever festivities they celebrated yesterday, the day before or even the day before that.

I logged in after getting home from lunch with the family and jumped straight onto my pally to continue the trek to 90.

Xmas guild chat was hilarious..I cannot even begin to tell you how much I was laughing…the discussion with Nok regarding haloumi was particularly delicious because I then had dreams of it that night!  Nok was quite inebriated, and although I started off as post tipsy, I was soon into a bottle of Malsmey (like port) and had done half of it by the time I went to bed.  Hubby and I tried to run a heroic with him tanking at one point and although we got through the heroic, we decided we were too pissed to be attempting that with strangers….So we called it quits on that.

Boxing day morning we jumped online pretty early because we couldn’t sleep and I managed to get  to 88:

pally level 88

Pretty happy with my effort to be honest, I am trying pretty hard to get to 90.  This current level is going to suck my will to live, but I am going to start tanking some normal runs soon I think and see how badly I do.  I really don’t know if I have my tanking mojo anymore.

I also decided to grab my presents under the tree and I was appalled at the behaviour of the alliance players…we had smoke bombs, growing mounts, people just standing on top and making it a living hell.  Here is what it looked like for me on my main server – and every server I went to with Alliance toons was similar (3 servers):

WoWScrnShot_122613_091802

 

Yet,  horde this is the image that greeted me….and I would point out there were plenty of hordies playing with the zeppelin etc, so they had grabbed their presents…:

Xmas Tree Org

I swear – I am not lying I went to Org on 3 servers and they were all like that – completely empty and well behaved.  I watched many people run up, grab their presents and then run back down the hill or to the side or just away in general, I like horde…

 

I get the fuzzies

Last night I was levelling my pally, I am pretty focused on getting her to 90 as soon as I can, I would like a level 90 horde toon to do things with friends on this faction.  I was pretty amped when I logged on as I knew I only had 50% to be done to get to 87.

Ding for me! Just three more to go…88 is my worst level because it is the in between one…so I was chatting to Aza who said he would run some dungeons with me when get to the “can’t keep going” point.  I am quit excited and although I hate to impose on people I adore, I have to confess to be ever so slightly excited at the prospect of getting a couple of runs under my belt with my Frostie friends.

Pally 87

For lack of a better description, I am still starstruck by a lot of people in that guild because I have been reading about them for so long, I confess to being a bit of a groupy.  It is after all by reading Nav’s blog in the first place that I met them all.  I want to be 88 already so I can start running with them, so of course I must quest!

In my travels last night, I discovered this little mob sitting by a tree :

Ferdinand

I haven’t read the book, Ferdinand the Bull, I only know of it from the movie “The Blind Side”, which is a favourite of mine.  I was so excited to see him, I couldn’t bring myself to kill him either – he is from a children’s book after all!!  ❤ Blizz right now though.

I also did one of my favourite quests – mini dragons!!!!! Yes, I will try and get a picture of this quest with all of  my toons!!

Pally dragons

Of course last but certainly not least, towards the end of the night, someone jumped online that I had been dying to see since I got back, but had managed to miss every single time I was on – thanks to battle tags though, that will never be a problem again!!  But he remembered how much I loved one of his macros…(and I believe I have posted about it before) but I was so happy to see it!!

Bunny welcome

Honestly it just makes me giggle my arse off every time! It’s a bunny…driving a tank!!!!  A BUNNY!!!  Yeah, I never said i was going to make sense!! We had a very interesting discussion about analaog vs digital and measurements from the beginning of time – and I begged him to put the entire lesson into a blog post because it was so fascinating. I want to share it without stuffing up facts…but I was amazed last night and was having so much fun!

Onward to 88 I say!!

Catch up….long post

ok, so I started blogging and then have been so addicted to the game I have done nothing but play.  So, this post will be an attempt at a full update which I can then proceed to update normally after 🙂 There is a lot in here, so bear with  me and enjoy the amount of stuff one person can get up to in just over a month.

Starting with my druid is now 90!!!  Woot 🙂  I love my boomy, as my old readers would know, I have however, never been able to play boomy – even after reading, testing and practising.  I love the spec…I just suck, but that should never stop you from playing – just don’t do it when it matters :p

WoWScrnShot_122013_164422

My priest is now 81 – slowly getting her up, hubby and I are levelling together with his rogue.  I am enjoying playing a SP, but I do forget I have a heal button which can sometimes be very useful.  I haven’t had a change to get much past 81 as we have been busy doing dailies on our mains. I wish you got an achievement banner at every level, it would look so much better than 80!

WoWScrnShot_121313_200952

Of course this leads to achievement chasing with so many different quest areas and achievements associated with them.  All of these have been done with just me as a frost mage and hubby on his SP so I think we are pretty awesome for having completed so many – and some were quite challenging in lower end gear.  There was the rares on thunder isle and the rares for each type of race which were the most difficult as clothies…but only a couple took multiple attempts and that was more because of added mob respawns.

WoWScrnShot_121913_121336

 

WoWScrnShot_121913_085522

As part of the dailies you can do achievements without even realizing what you need to actually do to defeat them 🙂  I did mention to hubby that perhaps we needed to kill the bloods?

WoWScrnShot_121913_101229

You also discover achievements that should be done because they are fun and nerve wracking at the same time – yes, 90 seconds on those pillars doesn’t seem long, until you are trying not to fall off!

WoWScrnShot_121813_221608

Or achievements you have no idea how you actually got….Hubby had gotten this a couple of days ago, so I had made a concerted effort to focus…but I swear – I don’t remember throwing any fire down, I was studiously laying down the oil first…I am certainly not going to say no to this though!!

WoWScrnShot_122013_094908

 

I have done most of the LFR’s at this point, but missed a couple of screenies as I didn’t have my addon running, but I only have SoO to go now!!  Even thought it took us about 8 attempts to finally get a Pinnacle of Storms LFR!!  And the second half of Mogu Shan I finally got done as well!  Woot Woot!  Some of the boss fights are fantastic…completely fantastic, others a little bland in LFR, but for the moment I am content with being in a raid again.

WoWScrnShot_121913_141134

Vale of eternal Sorrows (which I have been calling Shadows – fail reading there on my part, no wonder no one knows wtf I am talking about)

WoWScrnShot_121913_133541

Phew!!  There are going to be a couple more posts but for the moment I think I have bored you all enough!!  Such a good time in game since I have been back. Really has been so much fun!

Kill ALL THE THINGS!!!

I cannot stress how much fun I have been having in LFR!!

In the last few days I have done even more of them and I still have more to go.  I was hoping to get to through all of them before reset this week, but couldn’t quite manage it.  I admit to being chuffed everytime I finished one a new one would open.

But in all the fights I have done I have only died once due to my own stupidity.  I think that proves that a small amount of input and understanding of what you are supposed to be doing can help you immensely.  LFR may not be the full blown version but it does show that you can be prepared to do your job well and avoid what needs to be avoided.  I ran without mods except for recount just to see where I was sitting, so no omen and no deadly etc, just watching my surroundings and I confess to feeling so good about using my brain and my head to watch for things.

I enjoyed it anyway 🙂  Others will surely disagree.

flesh shaping halls - 6th

forgotten depths - 6th

The one fight that killed me was the boss who summons the purple cloud of death? I was doing ok until that happened and i was down faster than…well faster than someone getting paid to…!!! The raid wiped and we went again and i survived until the second one happened, but since most of the raid had died in the first one, i was happy to have survived. I died with about 5 other people with me. I am feeling no shame about that death!

I didn’t have a clue on the hydra boss, the strat said something about using ice to kill fire but i never got a buff or debuff…so i just followed the crowd when the head died. I felt a bit ‘meh’ about that one.

I cant remember the other ones at the moment – thats terrible!!! But overall i was happy with the fights and was loving being back with other people killing stuff!

Hubby is really close to levelling so we can start doing crazy isle together!! Woot woot!!

I spent a little bit if time getting my druid to 88, and so will be getting her to 90 next – deciding is she should stay horde or not.

My thoughts so far on MoP

I am currently sitting midway into level 87 and I will honestly say – hand on heart – I am sick of levelling already. It feels long.  Really long this time. I normally don’t mind questing, but I am finding it particularly frustrating this time around.

My very quick reasons for this – is the maps are confusing and quests are spread out all over the place.  I have felt as if I have spent all day running back and forth for like 2 quests, or you find a random in a forest who has 3 quests but had you not walked past him you wouldn’t have known they were there.  I would prefer you have a map with one city in the middle and some dude hands you out 50 quests all at once, then I can just go around the map and do them in some semblence of order.  Yes – I want order!

The second issue I am having is being unable to find ways to get into quest hubs, yesterday I spent 30 minutes riding around an entire map to find an entrance that was on my map, but not when I got there. It has happened multiple times.  Yes I know it is not Blizz’s fault because I get lost, but if we sued the above solution, I wouldn’t be annoyed about it !  :p

See, very quick negatives, onto the other things!

I have run both available dungeons :

First time I ran it I got locked out of one of the boss fights because the tank ran in like a looney – although that seemed to be a theme with the runs I went on today (5 – if memory severs me correctly). I didn’t get a chance to enjoy my time in there so I really cannot comment,  I hate the first boss who requires you spend the entire fight running in a circle….what a stupid fight for people that need actually cast….stupid….

The last boss in this place, I SWEAR!!  did different things when I went in…so I am assuming there is a random element to it..it may help if I actually read the dungeon journal – I might do that tonight :p  I liked this instance, the litle elemental things are in it 🙂 They are awesome! Bad image but you know which creatures I am talking about.

I have been taking great care to read things and just enjoy the small things that are always in the game but generally missed out on.

A guildie also found one later that said something along the lines of scratching their botom they sniffed their finger and will never do it again.  I must try and track it down, it was funny 🙂  I liked the Hozen, not as annoying as JaJa binks but almost!

I am having massive bag space issues as the gear I am getting all looks so awesome, I am wanting to keep it, but my void storage is completely full, so is my bank and my only options now are to go through and delete any double ups of gear – like for my tier 13 stuff I have duplicate LFR pieces that I was using for PVP etc…I can get rid of them now and that may free up some space, but for the few pieces that will get rid of, I have already gotten quite a few novelty items from quests that I can’t bear to part with like my puntable marmot.  So transmog is an issue.  I am a fully fledged addict.  I want to enter more competitions! LOL

I am having issues with my mage – my damage seems to be crap.  I tried frost with no luck – I was struggling to get the hang of it, and am now trying fire.  I seem to spend far too long killing one mob, my normal spells are hitting for less than 20k (they used to hit for almost 30k and up to 50k for a crit) – I have to investigate what changes were made, was the damage output reduced for everyone or are the mobs just that much harder to kill? I am feeling quite distraught about it.  Fire is still RNG, although I enjoy the playstyle, I was barely doing 14k on some fights and others I was hitting just over 23k….which in my mind is pathetic.  If I get a chance over the next couple of nights I will start my investigations, this will be an easy fix once I figure it out I am sure.

Overall, I am enjoying myself!  I can’t wait to get to 90!

Beavertown

Yeah, busy like beavers…you thought I was going to the gutter again didn’t you :p naught naughty readers!!!

I have barely been online this past week due to things..just random things, but things nonetheless.

Our guild got to level 10, I missed it sadly, but I was there for our level 11 ding!  YAY!

I also discovered, stupidly slow again, that there is no cap on the dailies anymore. I knew it was happening but didn’t think to check as I thought it was a MoP thing.  So I spent one day going nuts with the dailies and then haven’t done them since. I must get another couple of days done, on a couple of different toons, I want to have more money saved up for MoP.

My shammy managed to beg a couple of runs with the guild and now has enough gear to get into the twilight heroics, however, I am a little meh about playing her as enhancement…I shall see how it goes though, I am missing totems, it was what I played the class for. Apparently Elemental is the way to go!

I am certain my levelling experience through MoP will be my mage, druid, paladin, warrior.  The last two being interchangable depending on time factors etc.  In previous expacs I went nuts with my mage doing everything possible before worrying about the next, however there is no demand for that this time so I will just get them to 90 and spend time alternating on them.  Aside from raiding requirements on my mage of course 🙂

I will probably level a monk with the frosties so I have a healer/tanking toon over there, rather than just a tank.

I am going away this weekend as well, so will be MIA a little bit, hopefully will get online tonight for a run of some kind, and a scenario or two 🙂  I can’t wait to see it!!!

This is the last week in cataclysm, and I am sad and happy and excited and nervous and so many emotions.  As alway,s I get emotional when it comes to this game. I love it.  I love the world and I love the story.  I am amazed that people have created this just for my pleasure 🙂  I could think of nothing better than spending my days playing this game and just chilling out with my pets and dragons and oomkins 🙂

I can honestly say, hand on heart, that I have never had a problem with the changes or things that Blizzard do to this game.  So far, each time has been better with awesome changes and more fun.  I can’t wait for Pandaria and I am just excited to be blogging through another xpac!!

 

Raiding and my obsession.

Yes.

Obsessed.

I had not been raiding for an entire week.  ONE WEEK!  I was having withdrawals until last night when I got pulled into a full DS run by some friends 🙂  We did Mor’chok heroic and that was about it, the rest we ran like manics through.  I felt so good afterwards…just having been in a raid was enough to satisfy me for a few days.

As mentioned previously I am in the process of updating our guild website with all the raiding information and strats I can find for MoP.  I already have most of Mogu’shan vaults committed to memory, just the last 2 I need to work on a little more.

I have done a couple of the Heart of Fear bosses, mostly committed to memory – they look like fantastic fights!  Can’t wait! But I have done nothing about the middle raid yet.  Yes I have been slack.  But committing that many bosses to memory is hard work let me tell you 🙂

All this raiding information has made me literally wanting to raid.  I want the kill and I really want to see us do it – I don’t want to fail as a raid leader, I want to push people to be better and I want to be better myself.

This of course brings me to my mage.  I sucked at arcane, I am now sucking at frost and I am going to try fire at some point over the next few weeks – probably whilst levelling?  I am feeling very very uncomfortable on my mage and completely out of depth.  I was hoping a run in DS would help me practice the frost rotation and in all honesty I was pathetic.  For someone with my gear I should be kicking arse.  Is this the end of my mage?  Have I really come this far to not be able to do another xpac on her?

NO NO NO NO NO!!!!  I will not give up just because shit got hard!  If I stop playing her its because I want to…not because I can’t handle the changes!  SCREW YOU no self confidence!!  I’ll show you!!

errr….

Sorry I momentarily lost my train of thought….and it doesn’t want to come back. So I shall leave you here with my little tangent of anger at myself 🙂  LOL

Also found out the store I am picking up my collector’s edition from – isn’t having a midnight launch like they have every other xpac..so now I am going to just go to work on Tuesday, pick up my copy on the way home and get Wednesday off instead. No midnight launch for me 😦

Our little toons

A long, long, time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, three friends created little toons on a server with the intention of just running around together and eventually levelling. The server was Durotan and was our home before the Galactic Oceanic Server nexus was opened.  The toons were levelled to 27 and then left there, forgotten, unloved and unplayed as our main toons moved to new homes, new guilds and new adventures.

Today we logged into them, they are still in a guild together with no one else there of course 🙂  We had 13 gold between us!  I am playing a holy priest, hubby a frost mage and Cay a prot warrior.  We created them with the intent to always just be chasing DPS toons for 5 man runs.

We got them to level 32 today just by running some dungeons, we also got a few guild achievements and are 13% through the guild level.  We shall see how far we get them.

It was fun to be running on them again, it has been a very very long time and in fact those toons are what gave us the idea to start our first guild up all those years ago – in a round about kind of way!

We may be raiding tonight, so I may post again, but I was so excited about these toons I just had to put something up here now. I just wish I had gotten a photo of the three of us.

 

Purple Nurples and other addictions :D

Sorry for all the transmog posts lately….I blame JD 🙂  Yes yes!!

Tonight, I transmogged another olympic outfit…the Javelin, but whilst trolling around transmog sites and gear, I found the set I wanted for my warrior….the Revenant set!  All purple and  I chased down some quests which rewarded the items and I have to farm two bosses for my shoulders (Omor in Hellfire ramparts – who didn’t give it up tonight) and Kael in MgT – who I have to kill but can’t be bothered doing right now!  Thanks to McT for all the help he gave me and fantastic mogging talk 🙂

Of course my only issue is a mace now..all the ones I like are from heroic ICC or FL…so I have to lower my preferences 🙂  heheh  But i am calling him the purple nurple!!!

Onto other things, I took my Druid into LFR to heal…and I sucked…I really just don’t get druid healing…although I have only done it a couple of times so perhaps I am being too harsh on myself.  I may just give up on the healing.

My rogue is now level 20 and has riding skills 🙂  This makes me happy as running around it just killing my will to live.  I am not sure how far she will go, but anything is possible.

Hubby got his druid to 84 this morning, and we are currently on our pally/shammy combo trying to get them to 85 as they are fully rested now.  Funny tangent, we had them in a guild which no one ever spoke in – over 400 members and I think I had seen people speak in guild chat once…when I joined about 6 months ago.  So we left that guild today because we just got sick of the silence even when trying to get a conversation started.  About 1.5 minutes after leaving the guild, we get a guild invite to the same guild!!! A generic whisper saying our guild is looking for members, join us type thing, so we both messaged back something much less polite than “we just left your crap guild”.  I did giggle.

We are considering moving the 2 of them over to Dath to be with the frosties…not that we have discussed raiding at all, however hubby did mention that 2 raiding resto druids may not work so he needs another toon option (resto druid because I waffle about Navimie too much I think)….I find this interesting for 2 reasons :

1 – I may be able to convince him to raid if the team is not as unco as he currently experiences.

2 – I have not mentioned raiding at all except that they progressed well and seem to be quite competant.

I felt a little twinge of excitement when he said that because it gave me some hope. I may be able to raid with him horde side again…somewhere!! I had a happy!

My mage is feeling very unloved at the moment, and I do feel bad for her. I might try and do an olympic transmog for her now and see if I can’t give her some loving.

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.

I joined the crazy club!

Since I joined the Frosties on Dath, my warrior has decided he is quite enamored and would like to stay for a while, I have no idea what they get up to when I am not around, but it must be good.  I suspect something to do with drumming and half naked tauren females of a suitable age, he does have such a soft spot for the feather headdress’.

Anyway,  getting off track there.

I have created a tauren druid to keep him company, however given my recent guild drama I may change that to a warlock /DK given they are the classes I have not levelled to max (or have any intention to) and i already have a druid…not sure I want to switch servers with all my toons though – it does get expensive when you have a few inter-dependant toons doesn’t it?  LOL  They really need to have a bulk discounted rate for people to move accounts and not just toons.

I also created a BE rogue to play with. I will see which one takes my fancy more over the next few weeks and see what happens.  My rogue is currently level 10 – two more levels to go and it will be the highest level rogue I have ever had.

You can definitely tell when someone is an addict – when they create a toon and have that many account pets that you get this achieventment :p  I have made her an enchanter and JC…an enchanter would be nice over this side for all my DE’ing needs 🙂

I decided that I love my druid so much, one wasn’t enough, so potentially, by baby druid will be resto and boomy…or maybe bear….but always boomy….ALWAYS!!   Isn’t she just gorgeous 🙂  She is currently sitting at level 8.  I stopped her to create my rogue simply because I may move my druid over to Dath.  Either way I am set to level a second druid- which means I have joined the club of those insane people that have multiple max level toons of the same class.  The majority seem to be Pallies and Druids – but I could never level another pally…that would just be hell I think  – it is for that reason I would never level another mage..they sucked so much during the levelling process in Vanilla, I could not do it again!

 

Also found a flying pig whilst levelling her…I was quite amused.

 

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!

Heirlooms are the shizz!

I am going to put it out there right now, if you are trying to level alts and you haven’t got them kitted out with full heirlooms, you are nuts!!

I am luckily in a 25 level guild so I get the perks as well, added to the 4 pieces of heirloom gear whih provide XP bonuses and  the levelling is insanely fast!

I have been playing my priest today I logged on at about 10.30am at level 51 and I am over halfway to 56 at 2.40pm.

I would be going faster except I am levelling at work and have phones to answer, however this is awesome!  I would love to be running dungeons as I think that would slaughter my xp as well, I may try and do a run shortly and see if i get interrupted :0) I don’t want to take the risk that someone comes into the actual shop for help.

The point is – get yourself the heirlooms! Use your darkmoon faire or justice points or gold or whatever you can and wear them!

Loot drama and not enough people again

I know – everyone is saying it – we are apparently getting to the end of an expansion…I say apparently as I don’t have a release date for MoP yet – do you??!@?!  And if it is released in November – is that close?  Nope, is that end worthy?!!?  I don’t think so.

But!!

Why is it so hard for 10 people to be online at the same time so we can raid?!

This post is a little ranty – feel free to skip over it 🙂

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?!

All i need now is lotto :)

Awesome day today!

My beautiful warrior finally hit 85 this morning!! YAY!  He was my second toon ever created after my mage 🙂  He was a she at her original creation but is now a tauren boy.

I don’t really have any plans for him, I just wanted to get him maxxed so I can maybe run some dungeons and just have some fun.  I enjoy my warrior – nowhere near as much as my mage or my druid, but I enjoy thunderclap and Stromstrike far more than I probably should!

Anyway, I logged onto my priest to start levelling her, since I am at work I can’t run dungeons, so am just questing, which can get boring!  I got a message from the hubby so I took a few minutes to read that.

The one that started it all meme

Cymre over at Bubble of Mischief decided to start their own meme…I am throwing into this one as well 🙂

I might tag a few others and see if we can get some old school shots 🙂  Like Cymre, I have been playing for a long enough time that I have switched PC’s about 6 times…so trolling through my images folder I went looking for the oldest one I could find.

21st August 2005 – Oh yeah, that’s old…

Lvl 37 red spider!!

So I would have been, what…34 approx?  I remember this so well, I had a quest to go to Tabitha’s hit…yeah…for all you old people out there, you will know there was no marker for her…just a love heart shaped island to head for…However Dustwallow was too high for me, so a guildie came to help me out….Funnily enough, this is still my main toon!

It took us about 15 minutes to get there, because I swear – everything in Dustwallow tried to eat me 🙂  It was THE funniest run to a quest giver I have ever experienced.

Ahhh memories…makes me want to watch :

Cats

So to help spread this a little – here is a couple of tags for people to do this – and if you are tagged already…too bad!!!  LOL I refuse to miss out this time!  :p
