Goodbye to RaF, Yeah

February 24, 2014

Finally! Officially my RaF doesn’t end until sometime midmorning on Wednesday, but in reality, it ended yesterday. Between work and raiding, I wouldn’t have time before Wednesday to get any more done anyway. Plus, I really didn’t have more to do. I don’t want to boost all of my characters, I want to do SOME solo leveling still! So let’s take a look at how things ended up.

My last pair, Vorta and Crazbi, needed to get to at least 43 over the weekend. But as I got to thinking about it, and since I had time this weekend, I decided that getting them to Outland would guarantee that I could boost one of my pre-existing characters to 85 as well. So that’s what they did.


So here’s the tally:

On Drak, I got Wega to 78 and used the bonus levels to boost my pre-existing warrior Naeladi to 77. Sadly, since the guild kinda died and the mega-combination of six servers transformed Drak into a high-population PvP cesspool, this was kind of a waste. I moved Dyle (now Paddey) and Adryen off the server this weekend, while I still had the second account available to toss them ginvites without the help of a second person.

The majority of my work went into building up my stable on Kargath/Norgannon. The character count there is now quite impressive, although there is still much to be done.
I have a laundry list of 85s there now to level through Pandaria:
Oranis, frost mage and GM of Lemon Squares
Alestav, rogue
Vozzkaz, shaman (leveled solely from granted levels, she has an ilevel of 0 and no spec, HA)
Hunahuna, balance druid
Vorta, feral druid
Rathanos, prot paladin (pre-existing, boosted from 55-85)

PLUS since I transferred Adryen, he is 88, so he needs a couple levels. Then there’s Giska at 72, Oslee the warrior who got the leftover levels and went from 34 to 50, and Oslen the hunter who is something like 32. I did delete my level 30 priest once I transferred Dyle over.

It was fun, but … I don’t know if I’d do it again. Running two instances of WoW at once really strained my video card. (I’m on the lookout for a good deal on a better one.) Plus, since it is a limited-time deal, I felt obligated to spend my free time working on getting as many levels as I could. I wanted a zhevra, and I wanted to have every class at 85 that I didn’t already have. Mission accomplished on both of those counts. And really, since I was changing servers, it came at a good time, because I could build up my alt army there.

Oh yeah! Side bonus … my personal guild Lemon Squares went from level 1 to 10 because of this project! With some help from Trout’s level 90 priest and a little from Slice as well.


RaFing Around

December 11, 2013

Just a few shots of some of my Recruit a Friend pairs as they tool around Azeroth.

Conie and Leion make new friends in Azshara.


Zalazku and Razkazkaz hanging out in the Northern Barrens.


Oranis and Ileida have made it the farthest, all the way to Northern Stranglethorn. Those water striders sure do come in handy!


Just a note of warning … with the new in-game interface, you’ll get a popup notice when you are eligible to select your reward. If you’re choosing a mount, MAKE SURE you are on a character level 40+, because they don’t send the item in the mail to all your characters … they plop it into your bags and it is soulbound. This isn’t an issue with pets, but the Zhevra still requires level 40 to learn.

I was on Wega when I got the notice because the first thing I normally do is log onto a bank alt and take care of my auction business. I didn’t think ahead and ended up with the Zhevra sitting in the bags of a level 14. So now Wega has a RaF partner as well, and I went a step further and gave her and her lock buddy heirlooms to make it go even faster. Meh, I need her leveled anyway so she can open all the lockboxes taking up space in my bank. Yes, I KNOW I could put in a ticket and Blizz would take care of it for me, they are good about these type of things. But I’m having fun with it so why not? There are other benefits as well … last night they got the Echeyakee quest, so I logged Juna on and got one for her. Back when she leveled through the Barrens, well, she was my first character so I was still learning. Plus, we didn’t have 50 freaking stable slots. We had five. FIVE. Plus, there was the whole training skills to the pets and … bleh. Huntering is so much easier these days. Point being, she just couldn’t afford to have him take up a stable slot. Now she can. 😀
