Oh Look – a Post!

Except I have nothing to say, really.

We did raid this week in SR. We are sooooooo close on Heroic Ultraxion, and it is extremely frustrating that we haven’t gotten him down. If one person dies, we are screwed, no matter how fast they pop or get b-rezzed. Oh well … an extra 5% is being taken off the boss health and damage again on Tuesday, so next time we raid, his head is going on our guild wall.

Agent Van is just shy of level 30. I’ve sort of been skipping over regular quests and fast-tracking his class storyline in an effort to get my Legacy sooner. I got the quest where Vector joins you as a guest, and was worried at first …like omg he wears light armor and isn’t a tank I hope I can keep him alive sort of anxiety. But as it turns out, he kills things so much faster than Kaliyo (who I have geared for damage reduction and shield absorption) that it actually works out better to have him along. So even though he’s not an official companion yet, I’ve already started gearing him up  (i.e. I crafted him an earpiece with my Cybertech). In fact, playing around with him has influenced my future character creation … Slice and Sorak can prance around in their sissy dresses and play with sparks … my light armor wearer is going Assassin yo!

Hmmm. There’s a good topic for discussion … my first WoW toons were ranged (hunter and mage) and …. well, I haven’t *really* played a ranged class since. Almost all of my playtime is on paladins and DKs. Yeah, my paladins are healers, but they melee for questing and dailies and the occasional raid boss. Agent Van is technically … well … he’s Operative not Sniper so I guess he counts as melee even though I play him like ranged, but he’s really a healer so I’m not sure what to count him as. So anyway, the point is, at one time I would have discounted the melee right away and picked the ranged class, but somewhere along the line my tastes flipped and now I am pretty comfortable with melee (prefer it actually) and even look at the class description and get excited when it mentions stealth. (Thank Agent Van for that .. omg the things I can sneak by!)

Ok. I know this was short and boring … not even a screenshot! … but there hasn’t been much to talk about and work has been extremely busy … stupid nice weather has jump-started the touristy season by a couple of months.

    I’m the opposite as far as WoW goes. I started off with a Kitty Druid, DK and Ret Paladin, so I was a bit of a melee specialist to start with. Now I much prefer ranged DPS (and of course healing).

    What is this “melee” thing? It sounds like a tank kind of deal. I don’t *do* that.
