Last week I had only four characters (hunter, mage, rogue, druid) who had their order hall missions unlocked. That was pretty manageable even without the app. This weekend though I got busy and opened up a few more. I now have 9 characters running missions, which would totally be a drag without the app. I added another mage, a shaman, a warrior, and both priests to the list. Hmm … where are my paladins and death knights?? I need to get on that.
Rozjin and Vozzkaz both went to Highmountain. Arcane felt fine to me, I had no problems. Maybe not as much fun as fire, but certainly more than adequate at killing what needed to be killed. Same with enhance. And as a bonus, Moozy stays on your back when you ghost wolf! The quests take a lot longer when you keep stopping for screenshots though.
Sanbec went to Stormheim. He had less trouble with things than the elemental shaman who has also done part of the quests there. Maybe just because he was my most played character last xpac and I’m less familiar with shaman, maybe because fury warriors are just awesome (even though arms seems to be recommended again as the leveling spec); who knows? So I have no complaints with the class. I do have a complaint about Stormheim, however. In every other zone that I’ve been in, there is a place to bind your hearthstone or a flight path at or near every quest area. In Stormheim I’ve only found one at the camp you’re dropped at after the opening scenario, then WAY over at the village that you go to after two other large blocs of questing. Like you literally do two of the three tests before you find a new place to bind. And with the way travel is in this zone, I really did not want to quit until I had either a new flight path or a new hearth to easily return. Now, it’s possible I’m an idiot and just missed an NPC somewhere along the way. But if not, then I am annoyed at this oversight in design.
Both priests went to Azsuna. I’ve spent more time in Azsuna than any other zone. I’m not entirely sure why I chose it as the starting zone for so many, but it’s so familiar now that I can just get in there, whip out the requisite quests to get to 101, and move on to another character.
After so many, I couldn’t bring myself to start on another though, so I went back to Oranis. He had an order hall campaign quest to return to Azshara even though he had moved on to Val’sharah, so he went back to work on that. Fortunately, part of it was in a bonus area that I hadn’t completed before leaving, so I got to finish that up. Then in the middle of the next part the DDoS attacks hit, so I had to log out and watch football for awhile. Because, you know, the fantasy gods wanted to make sure I saw Adrian Peterson being helped back to the locker room without putting weight on his knee. $#@%%^@
Then there was pirate day yesterday. I hear there was a new toy that could drop from a new boss shark there at Booty Bay. I didn’t even log in yesterday because it was the first night of bowling league. Hey, I have to at least pretend to exercise once in awhile! Hope some of you were able to get it. For me there’s always next year. 🙂
