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! 😉

Arrrr … Give Me Da Golds

November 1, 2016

So yesterday Z posted about the ‘new’ Defias armor transmog set that you can get through a quest in Deadmines if you are an outlaw rogue. Check out her post if you’re interested in getting this set, she has a great write-up.

So I wandered over there and stealthed through killing bosses only. But when I got to the ship room with my Green-Wing Macaw out and grappeled up to the Cap’n, this happened.

Yup, that’s right, I already had all of the pieces! Now, Kroy has been around a long time, apparently even longer than I remember, because he had to have collected those pre-Cata. It’s possible that I got pieces on other leather-wearers or even my hunter now that I think about it. Still, the quest was a blast … I never tire of running around shooting everything with my pistol. And who’s going to complain about 750g? 🙂

Funny story, too, you know how that fire mage I’m playing as my main right now was my Horde bank alt for the last however many expansions? Yeah, well, Kroy spent the better part of his existence as my Alliance bank alt. Neither of them made max level before the pre-Legion demon invasions, and now they are both among the characters that I have already worked on leveling this time! The outlaw fighting style is always what I had imagined for Kroy, so it just seemed like the perfect time for his character to develop.

Also, if anyone needs a Green-Wing Macaw, one dropped for me while I was killing mobs for the quest and I would be happy share it. 🙂

Mythic This

October 25, 2016

I’m back! Yay! Let’s jump back into things.

Oh look. A new quest in my class hall! Meet Khadgar or Kalecgos or one of those K dudes at Azurewing Repose. Cool. *fly out there, talk to Senecgos, get another quest for Eye of Azshara because clearly I have not been there enough times yet* Wait, what’s this? Must be completed on Mythic difficulty. Uh … nope.

That’s ok, I still have this other quest to collect things from three dungeons that I can do on heroic and this week is the Legion Dungeon event so I’ll get those knocked out at least. Wait, what? The weekly is ALSO mythic dungeons only? Seriously. Come on Blizz. Ok, you know what? I have a perfect answer to this.

*goes to level alts instead*

Granted, whatever it is, I’ve already completed the class campaign, so it’s not THAT important. I can do pretty much everything I *want* to do without ever setting foot in a mythic dungeon. I’m pretty content working on Suramar, doing world quests, and leveling my alts. And hey, Karazhan is … oh. It’s Mythic too.

Invasion Update

August 23, 2016

So, woowhee, that invasion xp. At this point I have all 12 classes leveled. I am finishing off a mage, shaman, and priest that are all 98 or 99 which will give me all 12 classes done Horde side, and 7 of them on Alliance. After that .. well, I can work on the other 5 classes on Alliance and see how far I get, but none of them are higher than 60. Horde side I also have another level 89 mage that I could finish so that I have one for each spec. Besides those I have two paladins around 88-89, and another druid at 90. So I might just finish the high level ones, or bounce back and forth. I guess it partly depends on whether there were any changes to the invasions in this morning’s maintenance. I’m leaning towards working on the mage and druid because they can be different specs from the ones that are done, and then working on the Alliance classes…at the very least getting them to 60 for potential future boosts.
