Nine

June 14, 2016

This has been a good month for me so far in WoW.  On June 1 the Northrend Timewalking event came up again, and I finally had enough tokens to purchase the horse I had been wanting, the Ironbound Wraithcharger.

Then of course, the movie came out last week. I didn’t go the first two nights … I’m weird and prefer going on Saturday mornings when it’s light outside and the crowds are smaller. The only option on Saturday morning was 3D, and I had reservations about that, but I went anyway and I have to say, I think it was even better in 3D. I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome the movie was. Granted, there were a couple of things that, being interested in the lore and having read the books, I found to be … changed a little more than I would have liked. But I also understand that those changes made it a better movie, and I’m ok with that. I might even go see it again, and will almost certainly be getting the DVD later on.

One other nice result from the excitement of seeing the movie is that I feel like playing again, even daydreaming at work about which character I am going to level when I get home. It’s been months since I’ve had that feeling and it’s good to want to play again. I even finished my 9th class this weekend.

So Adryen Monk joins the other eight and now all I have left are Druid and Priest. The Druid will probably be my Tauren lady because she is 92 and nearly ready for Gorgrond. My troll is still 89 and so … I don’t know. The priest will probably be my human, even though he is also 89, because then I will have 4 max level characters on each of my three main servers. (I already have 2 DKs at 100 because … well, because I wanted to!) One of each other class will be enough. Van is certainly worthy of carrying Ashbringer, even though I would have loved for Kerick to be the one. I sent Kerick to get a garrison but I just … I can’t play him. I can’t make him look good and the new humans just aren’t him no matter what I do at the barbershop.

Oh yeah, I’m also gonna need a gnome hunter and a demon hunter or two, ya? Hmm … oh well. Gotta finish these last two classes, first.😉

Eight

April 11, 2016

With the Faire around last week, I figured it would be a good idea to get some more leveling done.  Saturday afternoon I finished up with Madorsa.

That makes 8 classes to level 100. Only druid, monk, and priest to go.

Oh. Yeah. You’re probably wondering how I skipped from 6 to 8, eh? Yeah, I boosted Kriann, the dwarf shaman, with the Legion pre-order. I didn’t document it because, well, it’s a boost. I didn’t level her. Well, I did, to 68, but not the rest of the way. So, she counts, but she doesn’t, ya know?

In the course of her adventures in Nagrand, Madorsa ran across Luk’hok, a rare elite elekk that drops a mount, the Mottled Meadowstomper. Now, he’s level 100 and she, at the time, is 98. Yes, I know, warlock OP etc etc but I didn’t even bother. I mean really, I have 7 other classes at max level right? Ok, 4 if we’re only talking about the server group that she is on, but still … I trotted Van out there instead.

I am totally out of practice with him, but I remembered enough to kill the thing without getting myself killed. So, new and totally unexpected mount!

Aside from all that, I spent yesterday working on my seasonal character in D3 since the season ends … crap, Friday. I don’t think I will be completing chapter 4. First off, in order to even get into my set dungeon, I had to dink around with finding the crimson beta drivers for my ‘legacy’ AMD video card so that the game won’t crash if I try to visit the Desolate Sands. Yeah. Next time I’m buying Nvidia. I might be able to get to Greater Rift level 20 and kill Siegebreaker Assault Beast on T4 by then, but I have to do some research on the set dungeon. That might be too much. Still, for a casual player, I’m happy just to have completed my set. I just need the pants still to have all 7 pieces.

Remind me next season to start running rifts at 60 or so, so that I have a collection of greater shards ready for me when I hit 70. I’m behind now because I have to run 2 or 3 neph rifts to get a shard in between each greater rift. Gah.

Class 6 and Season 5

February 8, 2016

Yeah, I know, you thought the blog was dead, didn’t you? Well it mostly is,  but I figured I should at least post big things, traditions, ya know? Like Rainbow shots …

Yeah, that’s the ‘new’ wizard I made for season 5. I say ‘new’ in quotes because I used the new rebirth feature to restart my level 20-something wizard over. I think he’s twice that level now, somewhere in the 40s. I dunno, I haven’t played in a week. The Faire started yesterday so I did something else instead …

Yep, that’s Alestav the rogue finishing his leveling and getting my 6th class to level 100, joining Death Knight, Hunter, Mage, Paladin and Warrior as my finished classes. So I only have 4 to go. Ok 5 really, but one of them is going to get the level 100 boost that comes with Legion. Probably my level 69 dwarf shaman, although I am also considering the worgen druid who is level 40-something. It wouldn’t take long to level her to 60 so she could get the professions. I’m going with one of those because I also have two professions to get to 600, leatherworking and inscription, which would be appropriate for either one of them. I also have a level 59 human rogue who would have been a nice choice had I not already had Ales almost leveled.

5 Down

August 12, 2015

So, with the Legion announcement, I figure it’s about time I finish leveling all of the classes. I already had a paladin, warrior, hunter, and two death knights done. So over the last week while the Faire was in town for carousel buffs, I finished off Karius the mage.

WoWScrnShot_080815_213539

This leaves me with six to go. I have a rogue and a warlock at 95, and a monk at 92. The shaman and druid are both 90 and waiting in their garrisons. Oh. That’s only 5. Who am I forgetting? Duh, priest. He’s also 90 and in his garrison.
