So, now that Van is past the Golden Lotus to revered grind, he’s been having a little more fun with dailies. He doesn’t get bored because he rotates them. You see, the August Celestials have four different quest hubs, one at each of the temples. So, he bases what dailies he does on which hub the Celestials want him to defend. If it’s at Cradle of Chi-Ji he does Anglers. If it’s at Temple of the Jade Serpent, he does Cloud Serpent. If it’s at Niuzao, he does Shado-Pan. If it’s at White Tiger, he does Klaxxi. And if it’s at the same place two days in a row, he’ll do Golden Lotus instead. So yeah … sure it’s slow, but it keeps it halfway interesting.
So yesterday after he did his stuff in the Jade Forest, I decided I wanted more to do. So I said, yeah, it’s time Kerick got to 90 and started dailies. So I logged him on … oh boy, he has a whopping 2% into level 89. But full rest xp. So after harvesting his measly four crops, he headed to the Spine to get his assignment into the Dread Wastes. O.MG. I mean, the quests weren’t hard. Ret survivability is pretty dang good (esp if you’re really a healer and care more about your health bar than your damage) and I make use of repentance and don’t overpull when I’m undergeared. But geez … Van was 90 when he went there, and the ability to fly really makes getting around a lot easier. But meh, I managed. Rescued a whole bunch of paragons and stuff and even did some dailies. Had fun with a leviathan, too.
By the time I only had the brewgarden hub left to do, he was sitting at 97%. Yay rest xp! But … I wasn’t feeling up to riding over there on my ground mount. I knew I could find a much better method for the ding and screenshot.
Zari, Fayle … this one’s for you!
And yes, after buying flying and doing Tillers stuff (omg I can pick up dark soil YAY) he did go and start on Golden Lotus. Now I just gotta get enough gear to go to the guild LFR on Saturday …
