That’s enough leveling

October 16, 2017

So the goal of getting all twelve classes to max level is complete. Thanks to two or three invasions over the last week, the last two are done.

The eleventh was Adryen the monk.

And last we have my demon hunter, Feorn the Fabulous.

The twelve are split evenly, six Alliance, six Horde … although I wasn’t quite organized enough to split them further by armor type, as all of my clothies are Horde and all of my plate wearers are Alliance. Meh, whatever. At least I also got the tailors on Horde with the clothies and the BS on Alliance with the plate wearers. Sorry Horde, the LW is on Alliance. Maybe when I’m bored (wait, when is that??) I’ll send some of the duplicate class alts to the invasions to remedy that situation.

Next goal is to finish all of the class campaigns, followed by all of the class mounts. I’ve finished like half of the campaigns so far? No, seven. I’ve gotten four of the mounts, although I have two more that are on the final quest/scenario to get theirs. The last of the seven just needs to collect sentinax marks which I am really lazy about because boooooooooring. The other five are recently leveled and still working on the gear they need to do the heroic dungeons in their class campaigns. Yes, yes, I could do normal, but the queues for normal are usually longer. And it only takes a few carefully chosen WQs and whatever unsullied gear Kerick finds to get them up to 825. It’s really not difficult.

Side goal for Oranis the mage, as mentioned last week, is all of the Legion fishing reps, most of which I plan to do on Sundays while I watch football. Yesterday I did the one in Azsuna since that is who was up. Thankfully, these take MUCH less time than Conjurer Margoss did, mainly because the things that you fish up can be 3-4 at a time instead of only 1-2 like his are. In just about 2 hours, give or take 10 minutes, I was done.

…Nine, Ten, Go Fish!

October 9, 2017

Well, another Darkmoon Faire has come and gone and I’m still a couple hundred tickets short of the dirigible mount. But hey, it also means another week of carousel buffs! I made the most of it. Between that and two or three invasions at the right times during the week, I managed to get two more classes to max level.

Kalyon hit it first on the invasion in Val’sharah.

Now I just have to max out all of his weapons so I can get pets! Fortunately, that is pretty easy now since you automagically get the AK levels when you ding.

Kriann didn’t quite get there on the invasions, but she was SOOO CLOSE that I decided to go ahead and do some profession quests that she needed to work on. She was finishing up an inscription quest in Felblaze Ingress when she dinged.

That was all on Saturday. Yesterday though I wasn’t feeling very well, and didn’t have the energy for running around, questing, even swapping characters seemed like work. So I logged onto Oranis, joined a Conjurer Margoss fishing raid, and settled in to grind rep and watch football.

Not gonna lie, it took several hours even in a group. The size varied from only 4 or 5 of us to around 20 as people came and went throughout the day. I took a couple of breaks myself, for eating and just moving around. But I got it done and collected the two toys, two pets, and the mount. As a bonus, one of the toys put me at 300 so I earned the mount that comes with that achievement as well! Now I just have what, 5 new fishing dudes to grind rep with? *sigh*

As for the last two classes I need to level, the monk and demon hunter are both 109, so it won’t be long.

That Makes 8

October 2, 2017

Faire time! Let’s hop on the carousel and get those alts rolling. Pretty epic ding here by Professor Paddey on Coren Direbrew to make priest my 8th class to 110.

He had a couple of pieces of unsullied gear from Kerick’s adventures on Argus, as well as ilevel 885 BoE gloves that dropped for Oranis in Tomb. (I almost said Nighthold, that’s how much I skipped over Tomb of Sargeras. I only just finished it in LFR on Saturday!) I sent him out to do the WQs that awarded gear upgrades for him. He has to do a dungeon to advance his class campaign though, so I’m holding off on those until next week when the Legion dungeon event is the weekly. That also gives me enough time to get him geared enough for heroics.

The other four classes (monk, demon hunter, death knight, shaman) are all at 108 or 109 so it won’t be long. No hurry though, as I’m still working on 3 class mounts plus now Paddey as well.

Speaking of class mounts, Madorsa finally got around to getting her demon horseys.

Or two of them at least. I’ll need to wait on the rare spawn to get the purple one.

Hunahuna the druid is on the second to last stage, the mission. She was stuck on the 3 rare elites for awhile but finished her balance weapon this weekend so I went and got her bear claws. Having had such success with Kerick going prot for Argus, I figured going tank with her should get me past the elites. Even if I couldn’t solo them, as a tank I’d only have to wait for one dps to come help. Well, I *was* able to solo the third one .. barely. I learned a lot by not having any help. She’s looking forward to finishing and getting to Argus.

Sanbec is actually on the class mount scenario. However, Blizzard made the warrior scenario a little more difficult than some of the other classes’ questlines, and I was unable to do it at his sad ilevel, even after going prot. He’s collecting gear and should be able to manage it soon.

Juna is the farthest behind .. or was until Paddey dinged. She is on the stupid Sentinax marks. Easy enough for her as a hunter, I just need to be motived to bother with it.

It Only Took a Month

October 4, 2016

I’ve come a long way from the days when I used to take a week off for an expansion launch so I could level and gear in time to raid. Note that I am not saying there is anything wrong with that, it’s just not what I want to do in the game anymore. Sort of a ‘been there, done that’ scenario. I did, however, decide it was about time I buckle down on one character and get to max level. So the alts (or maybe I should say the OTHER alts) got set aside temporarily while I finished things up with Oranis. He did the loremaster achievements in Azsuna, Stormheim, and Val’sharah. He did all of the class and order hall quests as they came up, and also did one dungeon for a pillar which, naturally, ends up being the dungeon he has to do again later for the class hall campaign. I guess that’s what I get for wanting to just do things as they appear instead of looking them up ahead of time. Anyway, he dinged 110 and hit friendly with the Highmountain all at the same time, completing his rep requirements in the leveling zones and ready to go straight to Suramar.

Suramar is as gorgeous as everyone has been saying. I died a few times, sure, I mean, I’m a fresh 110. Almost all of them were, like, if I’d had just one more pyroblast proc or one more charge on blink the thing would be dead instead of me. No big deal, a couple of pieces of gear (or fewer times fat-fingering ice block so that it’s on CD when I actually need it ahem) and that will improve, it’s all good. I was a bit distressed that the quests were only worth like 25 rep each, so getting to friendly did take longer than I expected. But I had so much to do it didn’t really matter. I wasn’t all that keen on the charging the ley line puzzle, but I enjoyed flitting around Oculeth’s workshop. And the portal system is going to be very useful. I only have two, well three, locations and I already love it. Then again, I’m a mage, of course I love portals.

World quests are … ok. I did a few. I didn’t have a lot of time though by the time I got them unlocked, so that’s probably a project for … well, maybe tonight. When does the event start again? I also got started on the archaeology quest, did the next order hall quest, and got my 5th champion. Fortunately, being dual gathering, I don’t have any professions to worry about. Honestly, with the way professions are gated this time, I’m considering dropping one of Kerick’s crafting profs and picking up the gathering prof that goes with the one I keep. I could do it because Karius and he both have alchemy and I don’t necessarily need two, especially since I’m not raiding. But we’ll see, I might not bother and just say ‘screw professions’ and not do anything with it. My priority for now will just be getting people leveled and prepped for world quests/class hall campaigns.
