Z and Cinder’s Blog Challenge – Changing Mains

January 25, 2017

Z and Cinder do a weekly blog challenge topic that they post about and encourage others to join in and do the same. They link all posts for each topic on their shared blog. This week’s topic is one that I can definitely weigh in on so here we go!

If I couldn’t play my main anymore, what would I be? Well, I already changed mains once going into Legion. Despite my love for my paladins and the knowledge that I would be wielding Ashbringer, I just .. couldn’t make peace with the ret playstyle. (We won’t even bother talking about healing, I quit that completely once I quit raiding .. pug healing stresses me too much.) So during the pre-launch invasion events I took out all of the classes for test drives and settled on what I felt was the most fun. Thus I have been a fire mage since Legion’s launch. I had mained mage in the past, although not with this particular character … but it would have felt wrong for my fire mage to be anything other than blood elf. It just feels *right* what with the weapon being Kael’thas’ Felo’melorn.

But let’s say they mean NOW, not six months ago when the expansion launched. What if last week’s patch had changed my current main too much and I didn’t want to play him anymore? Well, strangely enough, since it has never been a class I really cared for, I would probably go with my outlaw rogue. The pistol shot procs and quick combo point buildups are a lot more fun than I had expected, and I am going to thoroughly enjoy finishing the last 5 levels. He’s also a lot more durable than in my prior rogue experiences, partly from class changes over the years and partly just from playing him and becoming more familiar with his abilities. I’ll never be a pvp phenom or anything like that, but even in PvE I’ve found plenty of uses for the utility abilities like stealth and sap and, of course, vanish. Plus, there are some really nice leather transmogs. What? That’s an important consideration ya know! 😉

Hello 2017

January 17, 2017

Yeah I know, we’re already 17 days into the new year and here I am *finally* posting. But I figured I should at least toss up an update on how things are going.

WoW
Oranis got a legendary in one of his emissary bags finally, Marquee Bindings of the Sun King. These give a chance for your next non-instant pyroblast to deal 300% more damage after consuming hot streak. Normally I NEVER hard cast pyro, using it only with hot streak. But this certainly makes it worth it, even with only a 15% chance. I still won’t usually cast it mid-fight when I’m running solo, preferring to use it to pull the next mob. Coupled with my favourite trinket, the Devilsaur Shock-Baton which slows the enemy when it procs, most things burn to ash without even reaching me.

Junahu finished her hunter campaign so I am essentially done with her. Kerick and Hunahuna, who reached 110 over the weekend, are both working on their campaigns and did the World Quest event over the weekend to get the bonus rep and the 5k resources. I suppose I should get back to work on leveling someone else to follow them. I think Kroy and Sanbec are probably the furthest along.

Hearthstone
I posted awhile back that I was having problems deciding what to craft next. I finally decided on Tirion even though I’m not really playing paladin right now. Anyone who has been around this blog for any length of time will not be surprised, though, as I am a longtime Tirion fangirl. It just seemed wrong to not have him in HS, especially since they killed him off in WoW. 😦

Summoners War
Who … what? This isn’t a Blizzard game! Heck, it’s not even a PC game. You’ll just have to bear with me because BigBearButt posted about this game a couple of times and got me hooked. No I mean really hooked. Like, I’m looking stuff up and making spreadsheets hooked. Yeah. So, probably none of you will know what I’m talking about but that’s ok.

My Dagora is 5* and over 23k hp so he’s able to solo Tamor 3 Hell to level up my other mons. I also have Belladeon and Konamiya 5*. I don’t know who to 5 next .. I have Ahman, Chasun, Shannon, Bernard as likely candidates .. Darion is still 3* but I could easily evolve and level him by the time I have the mats to do a 5. I have some other good 4s that I definitely want to evolve at some point, too, but I’m not sure they should be next .. Mikene, Platy, Shimitae. Honestly though it’s probably between Bernard and Chasun. From what I’ve read, I’ll need Bernard and Shannon for my giants 10 team for sure. Then again, I’ll need Mikene to fuse Veromos, so … yeah. Either way, whatever I do will be for building my GB10 team. I probably should have done Shannon instead of Konamiya but his cleanse is so useful everywhere …
