The Warglaive of Azzinoth main hand just dropped for me so HAPPY!!!Can’t wait to get the off hand now.
So I kinda have an addiction to Rogues. Back in Vanilla, my first 60 was my undead rogue (still have this character actually).
At the start of each expansion since, I have tried to level another character and have always gone back to my rogue by the end of the expansion. In BC, I leveled a paladin at the start, then a mage and finished with my rogue. In WOTLK, I started with a warrior, then druid and ended with my rogue. In Cata, I started with my mage, then a dk and ended with my rogue. So far in MoP, I have played my death knight, warlock, monk, priest and now my rogue as well as lots of different alts.
Anyway this post is really about my first week at 90 on my rogue. I have gone from a lowly 335 ilvl when i dinged 90, to 479 ilvl in 5 days, mainly thanks to the wonderful troves of the Thunder King solo scenario. I got lucky on the way to 90 too: I got a Sha of Anger kill at 88 ish and got a Claw of Anger and the 496 tier trousers. Add to that, I already had the 476 Engineering goggles and I had pickpocketed around 20 junkboxes from which I managed to get a Krol Scimatar – the 476 agi sword. So… after I had bought the 450 rings and neck and the 458 PvP set, I was above 460 and ready to set foot into LFR.
My first trip in to the LFR was excellent, I got 7 pieces of loot from the 6 bosses. I then used the rest of my bonus rolls running the first part of the LFR another 3 times, managing to get to 470 with enough time to run the first part of HoF before reset. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know many people who manage to get such a good run of luck in LFR.
Since the reset, I have ran all the LFR’s but with no luck… only getting 1 piece of loot even with my12 bonus rolls I used. But, with that one piece and having enough valor to get the 522 next from Shado-Pan assault, I have got up to 479: 1 short of being able to access the new Throne of Thunder raid!!
This coming week hopefully I will get the last 3 upgrades I need to replace the last of my blues. I will then be attempting the Brawlers Guild and recording and blogging about my attempts.
Not a bad week, eh? We’d love to hear your tips about the Brawlers Guild in time for my adventures.
Quick edit just as I was posting this I got a drop from a heroic taking me up to 480 in a week 😀
OMG got my Monk to 90 in just over 3 days. At first, I was going to stay as DPS, but after running a few dungeons I found it massively boring so I decided to switch it to healer. That was just as bad! I’ve played as healer as my main character in nearly every expansion since my BElf paladin in TBC. With monk, there just seemed so much to do at the same time trying to jab the boss whilst healing everybody. There is also so many different spells to use to heal. I tried downloading healbot to help me use the spells, but trying to remember all the different mouse and modifier keys to use I ended up just getting confused. Having a low Ilvl didn’t help either…
After I decieded to not play the monk, I transfered my warlock across to do some raiding. I spent the few hours wiping on the first boss in Heart of Fear (I was the first to die with attenuation each and every time). They even ressed me after that phase once; only for me to die to the first one in phase 4 (idiot I know). After I asked them to replace me, I had a sulk about how awful I was at raiding. Also with the lock I was watching my dots so closely to keep my DPS up I wasnt focusing on what was happening around me.
S,o I realised I needed to play a healer I knew to have some fun. I was playing my priest a lot, but I didn’t really want to transfer it across to our new server. So, I have decided to level a new Resto Druid which was my main back in WOTLK. Again, I do still have that character on another server, but its Horde and again, dont wanna pay for a transfer. So I’m just going to level through dungeons whilst gathering herbs and skinning mobs as I wait to make some money while I level.
Wish me luck!
I am as yet undecided about the huge numbers of dailies in MoP. I love achievements, so they do appeal to my perfectionist nature. We have also been working towards our 50 exalted reputations and so they have been a welcome change to killing the same mobs for hours. However, what I am struggling to understand is why I have to do them on all characters that I need the better gear on.
My usual set up is my Mage as my main – all professions are maxed (primary and secondary), I do all achievements on her and all dailies. I play Resto Shammy for the guild and love healing.. and only healing. I have done two professions to complement the mage but no cooking or fishing etc. The hunter is for pretending to be a zookeeper and ninja-pulling in dungeons and nothing else. No, I’m joking… honest 😉
Currently, I am doing (in order of priority, depending on how arduous my day has been):
Bearing mind I have already done:
These, of course, do not include the others we did before the start of MoP. However, with the introduction of MoP, as I heal for the Guild, I’ve started to realise that I’m either going to have to do dailies for the valour gear OR we need to find a new healer.
I have never DPS’d on my Shaman – and although I should perhaps relish the challenge – this really isn’t what I play it for. Should I suck it up and get on with it? What do you think about that little blue exclamation mark?
