I meant to have an Alliance post today … really, I did. I was going to tell you all about Kaly getting his Winterspring Frostsaber. I even had a screenshot …
I was later than usual getting online last night, so things were in full swing already. Oh look, Arv is on … gah! His warrior is 30 already! My priest had been doing a few instances with him earlier in the week. It was mostly just something to dink around with … but I had so much fun, I decided I wanted to try to keep up with him. I skipped all my usual daily stuff and logged over. Fortunately, Arv was just about ready to go eat, so I would have some time to get my 26 priest a little xp before he came back.
I picked up the cooking daily and then thought .. you know, if I had more heirlooms … and it just spiraled from there. Log on to Van … ok, I have enough JP to purchase either a robe or shoulders … then I go to the guild vendor. Hmm … cloak, helm … wait I wonder how many JPs Arelin has. Oh look, he has more than Van did! So yeah … Dyle got a FULL SET of heirloom gear (minus weapons/trinkets) including the Dread Pirate Ring that Van won in the fishing tourney last weekend. I gotta admit, fully decked out, he looks pretty damn awesome.
I dpsed a pretty strange Gnomer run … went through 5 different tanks and had no tank for half the instance which was mostly tanked by a rogue. I got to 28 though, and then someone wanted to run a heroic so Van at least got to do something other than spend money and points on the priest. Arv gets back shortly before we finish and I tell him about my adventures in Gnomer … ‘and THAT is why I’d rather run them with you. At least I know I’ll have a tank for the full run.’ Ok, there’s actually more to it than that but w/e.
We ran Gnomer some more, and SM Graveyard a few times .. dinged 30, bought dual spec, and had to decide whether to go disc or holy. (I’d been healing as shadow up to that point. What? It’s not like Arv *needed* much healing.) I really like holy and will probably switch to it later, but … at this point, running leveling dungeons is just more fun with an atonement disc spec. So that’s what I got. Later on Lyssi joined us with her shaman and did a few. We eventually managed to get SM Library once.
So, if you zone into SM in the near future and see Dizzee, Dyle, and Zuleka … I hope you have your running shoes on. Arv tries his best to pull as many things as he can to give me something to do … and every time, after the mobs are dead and we aren’t, I say ‘nice try Arv’ and he replies ‘Dammit’ … lol. Good times. By the end of the night we were all 32-34.
