Locking Around the Isles

March 20, 2017

Syp over at Bio Break recently posted about how much he’s enjoying his affliction warlock. My lock, Madorsa, had always been demonology for leveling and destruction for raids. So far in Legion she had only been demo and had just reached level 103, but the new playstyle just wasn’t grabbing me and she was near the bottom of my list of classes to level. So I figured what the heck, let’s make the change now before her floating skull eats up too much AP.

She does have a face, really. Then again, being undead, it’s not really one you want to look upon, so maybe it’s a blessing that it is obscured in this screenshot.

True to Syp’s musings, affliction proved to be a lot of fun, albeit a 180 degree difference in playstyle from my main fire mage. Whereas the mage obliterates things within a few seconds, the afflock wants to throw dots on everything in sight and cackle maniacally while their health gets eaten away. There is no such thing as burning something down … killing takes time, but you can kill a lot of things in that time.

One of the best things about the spec is that I get to run around with the felhound. That has always been my favourite lock pet and yet somehow, I had never actually gotten around to playing the spec. I think maybe because it wasn’t good in Pandaria when Madorsa was created? I don’t know. Anyway … I’m enjoying it now. I put a couple of levels on her over the weekend. I even went and got Light’s Heart, which I have been mostly ignoring on alts because bleh. But it does unlock a weapon appearance and I wanted the purple scythe look so I went and did it. I’m glad I did, too, because I really got a kick out of this demon’s reaction when I brought Light’s Heart back to my class hall.

Here let me blow up his dialogue:

Yeah dude. Totes serial.

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.

Gimme Pets!

Yup. All it takes to get me to play again is new pets.

Tuesday night, Madorsa decided she wasn’t getting candies fast enough with dailies and Horseman kills, so she raided candy buckets in Eastern Kingdoms. The end result:

I didn’t bother trying to decide which one to get. I realized that since it had only taken three or four days to get the first one, I could pick up another character and get the other one long before the holiday is over … and possibly without getting too bored. So last night, I decided that Vozzkaz could start on the holiday after she finished her invasion questline. She had killed the last quest dude and was killing one last orc on the way out of the door of Okrill’on, and he dropped this:

Well, that made for a good week! On top of it all, I got a mythic Siegecrafter Blackfuse kill on Tuesday night as well. When I logged over to Van to do his invasion quests, they asked if I could come fill a spot to zerg him because even my craptastic dps would help. Of course, I forgot to get a screenshot but oh well.

Oh Look …

June 27, 2014

Friday again! Um … Thok can DIAF. I can see how this is a raid-breaker on heroic. I’m not even *in* for all of the attempts, and I’m sick of him. But … we’ll get him sooner or later. Oh … remind me to study Blackfuse before Monday! I think we’re going to try that one for a change of pace.

Outside of raid time I haven’t done much. I did a bit of preparation on my warlock for challenge modes. I think I have convinced a few guildies to help me at least get silvers for the mount. Since Kash has already healed them and wants to do it, I’m more than fine with bringing the lock for damage cookies and other utility benefits. And she doesn’t even have set bonuses or a legendary meta gem or a legendary cloak – the things that don’t work in there – so she’s not losing anything by fixing up gear for it.

I’ve also checked out Steam since everyone’s blogs are talking about the summer sale. I picked up things I’ve heard other people talk about that are basically old news, but that I haven’t played myself … like Mass Effect 2 and Borderlands 2. So I’ll have new things to play if my super slow DSL ever finishes downloading them.

That’s about it for now. Maybe next week I’ll have more to post about. 🙂
