Five Weapon Friday

September 9, 2016

Ok, this is the last of the weapons that I got LAST weekend! This weekend I will actually get to quest in the world so next week’s posts will be something different.

Aluneth

Ah, the Nexus. I do have to agree with others who said this was the hardest mage quest, but I only died on the final boss, and only once. Piece of cake compared to frost DK. Roz’s hair might be due for a recolor though, to match his return to arcane (and his transmog!).

Light’s Wrath

Oh, so once wasn’t enough, I have to save Azuregos again?? But I just DID that! Ok fine. Easier the second time through, whether from learning or class I can’t say. Disc is naturally a bit slower than arcane, but of course has the advantage of survivability. My only real kvetch is the lack of a silence but meh, I’ll deal with it. I’m sure shadow is better at killing, but Rags wants to show off his purty robes.

Fangs of the Devourer

Ok, wait a minute. How is it that I thought sub had become boring? zomgsomuchfun! I seriously had as much fun on this as I do on outlaw. So glad now that I have two rogues so I can mess around with both. Despite not having actually played sub since before the class changes, I *almost* got through without a single death. I mean like I only had to poke the final boss once after coming back from death to finish her off. And then at the end after returning to the hall, someone unexpected shows up. Wait a minute, that didn’t happen in the outlaw one! So cool.

The Fangs of Ashamane

Ok I think I have enough fangs in this post now to tear my way through the Brokened Isles and back. Fun quest full of druidy lore and scenery. Some things I’m not very good at as I haven’t really done cat since … Jade Forest? No, a couple of zones past that, she had the opening ‘kill Osul’ quests for Townlong in her log when the invasions hit. So yeah I got my butt kicked once learning how close I can stealth to stuff but otherwise not a big deal. The screenshot doesn’t come out very well though because of the darkness and the angle. Oh well.

The Warswords of Valor

Ok, for some reason I thought these were going to be 1H, but they are actually big old 2H. TG4evah! Sorry to you fans of SMF, reroll rogue or frost DK.

Anyway … Fury is a little bit different than before. Bloodthirst doesn’t really heal for much and … dude, I actually used bandages. For reals. That doesn’t mean it’s not fun, because it is! It’s just not all that durable anymore, which, I mean honestly, isn’t that the whole idea of a berserking type of fighter? Take damage but dish out more than you get? So yeah, thematically it makes sense. I ran all over Tanaan last xpac killing whatever I met and it was just insane because I almost couldn’t die. Fury warriors were spoiled and OP and that’s pretty much how he ended up my main. So yeah, I have to applaud the changes right now. Maybe later I will change my mind once I start the real questing, but for now, I’m just gonna be positive and roll with it.

So that’s a wrap. I still need to get my two DH going, and my third DK, but I’m going to work on leveling what I’ve got for now. I’ve sent like 5 characters to their first zone, none of which was Highmountain, and gained all of two levels so far, so I have TONS of stuff to look forward to!

Alt Week: Mage

September 13, 2013

I know I’ve said every week that this is a big one but … well, each week it’s been true!

Rozjin

When Juna first started raiding, there were a couple of troll mages she met who dazzled her with their shiny purple arcane missiles. So, after Juna and Arelin got leveled, the next character I rolled was Rozjin.

Despite being wooed to mage by the arcane, it was NOT a good spec for leveling back in Wrath. So Roz went about setting things on fire and then switched somewhere in the 60s when he learned arcane blast. He leveled fast and got to Naxx, where he won himself the armor set that I’d wanted so bad.

So anyway, Roz became part of the max level trio, and also joined my buddy Fiak (who got me into the game in the first place) in PvP. Then our guild kinda died, and I moved to another server, dragging a reluctant Fiak along with me. That one didn’t really last either, although we made friends there who I am still friends with to this day (shout out to the Shenanigans crew!). So, I started rolling Alliance alts on a third server. That one did last, and my Alliance are still housed there today.

Karius

One of the first toons I rolled there was Karius.

It wasn’t long at all before the original Horde toons began to collect dust, while Karius became the new main. He remained as such throughout the rest of Wrath, although the DK upstaged him because of a need for a tank and got Kingslayer first. He had a lot of fun though, and had really awesome friends to hang out with, like Elgar …

and Hartbane …

and Lore …

yes, I’m the dead one. :p

And of course, Grom!

He made a serious attempt to remain as the main in Cata, but .. like with Kaly and the Lich King, people just did not need another DPS. I made the swap to holy pally and haven’t really looked back because, well, I do enjoy healing. So Karius remains in limbo, although Roz did get leveled because he HAD to get Darkspear Revolutionary.

And that’s it for Mage Week. It’s a class I have played as my main and enjoyed quite a lot.🙂

Terrific Trio

August 21, 2013

Well, that part didn’t take long at all. Once I switched to fire, I stopped watching the xp bar and started having fun. I don’t believe things actually died faster, it just seemed like it since I was enjoying it.

WoWScrnShot_082113_000138

Yes that is my buddy Kovok covering my head in the shot. hehe.

So, that was the easy part. Now for the hard part. The two scenarios to unlock the Barrens questline, which I will coerce guildies into helping with, and then the Barrens stuff itself, which will be faster with help but can be done solo if I am patient.

One Week AAAAAAHHHHHH

August 20, 2013

omg omg the patch is in one week what ?!?!

Yeah ok it’s not like I didn’t know. I’ve known since the info was leaked well over a week ago. So what do I still want to get done over this final week?

Obviously, killing Lei Shen is priority. We have tonight and tomorrow as our regular raid nights to get it done. We should have our full group available. Cross your fingers.

Then there is Battlefield: Barrens. I’ve gotten four toons through it, three of which also finished the weekly to get the title. Kalyon doesn’t really care if he gets the title; he was the first toon to kill the Lich King while it was current content, so he is Kingslayer for life.

Which brings us to Rozjin. As you might guess from the name, he is a troll. Last night after working off Adryen’s bonus xp, I wasn’t ready to log off yet (partly because there were people on in guild and it’s always fun when there are people making fun of Arv chatting). Let’s see … Roz is halfway through 88, has 43 minutes on a carousel buff, and full rested xp. Let’s do this! I didn’t even think of the Barrens until he was almost 89, then the thought hit me … I have one week and full rested xp. If I can at least get him to 90, I bet I can get guildies and stalker ID friends to help me with the scenarios and maybe even burn down some commanders. Adoe always has fun with that. Arv? Slice? It would be a real shame if my troll didn’t get Darkspear Revolutionary for his title.

BTW I realized after one quest hub why I hadn’t finished leveling him yet. Frost is BORING. It used to be fun. Back in Cata, there were big old Deep Freeze crits that were so awesome they made me weep with joy. Now it’s just … sigh. So I went back to fire, which is how Roz originally leveled. Pyroblast! is just plain FUN.
