110? Not yet…

September 27, 2016

but I’m getting there! I took a break to get Kerick into his order hall, but otherwise I worked on Oranis all weekend.

Kerick … well, he has to have Highlord, I mean really, Tirion would be so disappointed in him if he let him down. Ret is fine, I mean, it works and stuff dies and I don’t but … it’s not fun. I took Arelin out last night for awhile because I’d seen someone say you get Koltira as a bodyguard so I figured yeah ok, let’s DK! Unholy, same as ret … it works, stuff dies, heck I can pull more things with that than I have with any other character so far. But it just doesn’t grab me. Looks like warrior is going to win again as the most fun plate wearer to run around on … too bad the whole valarjar thing doesn’t do it for me. There really isn’t a follower that excites me. Then again, they’ve pretty much killed off all of the other warrior champions that I can think of. No more Varian, no more Hellscreams … ok there’s probably a Bronzebeard, and maybe Shandris Feathermoon? Genn Greymane? Dang, are there any left in the Horde besides Baine? Anyway …

One nice thing about all of the character hopping is that I haven’t run out of rested xp yet. Oranis hit 108 last night and still has almost a full level worth of rested bonus. He’s been to every zone and gotten friendly with everyone except the Highmountain but he only needs a quest or two to finish them. (I suppose he should give Moozy back at some point eh?) He’s gotten the pillars in both Azsuna and Val’sharah as well as completing the loremaster achievements in both. He even hung out with Jarod, who is one of my favourite characters ever.

The end of Val’sharah is both the most beautiful and saddest thing ever. I mean really, I cried for Tirion because it’s Tirion, but I sobbed for Ysera. It was just so well done.

Have I mentioned how much I love the scaling zones and the ability to go wherever you want? Oranis got his second class hall upgrade and now has portals in his class hall to each zone, making it easier than ever to zone hop across the world. He needs just two more recipes to move along with whatever Nomi is going to have him do. I already know where to get a couple, he just has to get his butt out there and quest for them. Like, what? We have to go set more stuff on fire? Oh darn. 😉

Week’s End Roundup

September 16, 2016

I have four characters now that have at least made it to 101 to get their order hall missions going. I should probably get more of them going, but a couple of them have run out of resources so I’ve gone back and quested on them again to build up some more. I’m really in no hurry.

So I went back on Oranis to do a little bit more work in Azsuna. The quests at Nar’thalas Academy were especially fun. The combat practice from the tomes was my favorite.

He finished the questline for the pillar and, like Juna, got an instant dungeon queue. Um … ok then! I didn’t like Eye of Azshara near as much as Neltharion’s Lair though. Maybe it was just the difference in class. I felt like I spent more time running around avoiding stuff in this dungeon than I did in the other one. That’s always less of an issue on the hunter. The run was smooth though.

He’s out of resources again so out he’ll come tonight, whether to finish the questlines I didn’t do in Azsuna or to move somewhere, I’m not sure.

Hunahuna also ran out of resources, so I did a little more in Val’sharah. So far I’m liking the zone but I’m not sure I like boomkin. She may end up getting set aside in favour of the kitty.

Ysera’s new model looks great! For awhile at least.

The other character who got his missions going is Kroy. He bounced around some because of profession quests, starting in Azsuna to find Fargo Flintlock, then moving to Highmountain to find the mining trainer, which was an adventure in itself. I had no idea how to get up on the mountain. I eventually found my way up the wrong side, which was ok because I got to see this wonderful view.

And I also found this little family just chilling out on the mountainside.

Eventually I ran into an area that I thought might take me where I wanted to go, but I had to get past a max level boss creature. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try stealthing by him, even though I knew it was probably futile. On the plus side, as a ghost I was free to roam the peak and figure out how to get where I wanted to go. THAT was easier than figuring out how to get back to my body, so once I knew how to get to my quest objective I took a spirit rez and got there safely. Once I had the flight path there, I didn’t need to know how to ride there. At least until the next character with mining needs to go there … hmmm.
