Now that the weapons are mostly collected, it was time to head out into the world. Oranis, former bank alt, got the nod to be the first one out of the gates. (Actually, Kerick beat him to it, but only did the very first questline so there wasn’t much to report on.)
Harpy’s Nest posted last week about how the Dalaran flightmaster, Aludane Whitecloud, has you pay him to send you out on one of your own mounts. It’s kind of weird but also really cool at the same time. I never would have realized that the Warforged Nightmare leaves a trail of red if he hadn’t, because I never see my mounts from the side while in flight.
Fire is a lot of fun. Not that that is anything new, I’ve always found it enjoyable. But it’s a good bit more durable than it used to be. Aside from Ice Barrier now being baseline for all specs, one of the early traits on the artifact tree heals you when you blink. Coupled with the shimmer talent which gives blink two charges, you can easily get out of harm’s way AND heal up, all without much interruption in your damage.
So he had a good time running around setting everything on fire of the correct hue, not that ghastly green fel stuff. Although he did pretend to be a warlock for a little while when Tehd sent him to find his runaway imp.
Even better, he got to 101 and unlocked the missions in his order hall, so I was able to get the Legion companion app up and running. Now I can work on other characters and still keep him busy … at least until he runs out of order hall resources, then it will be his turn to quest some more.
