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.

Well That Was Anticlimactic

September 16, 2015

So I finished my ring quest ….

WoWScrnShot_091415_214438

It doesn’t even have a fun effect. And it’s a ring, so you can’t see it … not like the cloaks with their visual effects. Oh well.

Now that I had the ring and its follow-up quest, I went in and killed Archimonde last night. I got lucky and zoned into a group that already had 5 stacks of determination, so it was a quick one-shot for me. I hung around and watched the cinematic and felt … nothing. I thought back to the endings of the previous three expansions that I have been around to see. Garrosh … heck yeah it was exciting to finally put him in his place. Deathwing … that jerk ruined zones that I cared about and burned me to a crisp when I was just out and about trying to … ok, fine, trying to get burned to a crisp for the achievement, but still! Arthas, the Lich King … man oh man. Killing him is still the most emotional and memorable experience that I have had in the game. This? Meh. I could care less.

Now I have all this time to finish up other things. Reputation, achievements, collections …

WoWScrnShot_091315_150020

I’ve got Van catching lunkers for Nate, finishing the Awfully Big Adventure, and getting rep with the Emperor (yes, he’s an expac behind). Sanbec is finishing up the reputations in Tanaan and collecting music scrolls. Several characters are earning seals for the mounts I still don’t have from the Argent Tourney. Add in the 6 classes that I still want to level to 100 and I have more than enough to keep me busy.:)

No More Tomes

September 9, 2015

Except for this one, because she’s awesome.

WoWScrnShot_090815_214815

In this terrible screenshot, you can see me receiving the last Tome of Chaos that Sanbec needed to collect. That was also the last boss I needed to get the achievement for that wing, and it was nearly bedtime when we finally downed him, so I dropped out right after. What you cannot see is the 5 stacks of determination it took to down him. Although, from what I hear, it may take more than that to kill Archimonde, which I have saved because I’ve heard I will need to kill him for the next stage of the quest anyway. I didn’t even turn the quest in last night, I will do it tonight.

Now on to actual fun stuff!

WoWScrnShot_090715_200802

Yep, I’m taking a screenshot instead of hitting Herald Volazj. I saw him so many times this past week I figured I’d earned a couple seconds of reprieve.

The bonus last week was Wrath Timewalking Dungeons. This was also the premiere of the badges that you earn in them. It takes 5000 to buy the super awesome horse that I absolutely must have. But I wasn’t going to get him in one week. I had other priorities, because you get a quest to turn in after finishing your first dungeon that awards 500 badges. With those badges, you can buy ilevel 675 gear for anywhere from 25-50 badges each. I figured it was a perfect and easy opportunity to gear up my other 5 max level alts. So they all did at least one dungeon. Karius was the lowest geared going in, not even able to queue for Draenor heroics, but since these scale you down to a set level, his actual ilevel didn’t matter one bit. Voila! Just like that and he is geared enough to queue for Hellfire Citadel … not like he’s going to, but he *could* if he managed to talk me into it. I think my two DKs are still one point off, but a little time in Tanaan would take care of that quickly enough if I cared.

Next time, I won’t have to gear up alts, so Sanbec can just chain run them. And what a good time they were. I did a few heroics at the end of BC, but Wrath is really where my true deep involvement in group play began. I will never love any dungeons as much as I love Wrath’s dungeons. Sure there were a few wipes along the way … people forget that you can’t pull too many things that fear or flamestrike. What was it with fear in those dungeons anyway? I think every single one has some in it.

Anyway, it was great fun and I am looking forward to the next Timewalking event.
