Jov sez: Wrath, Week 2November 25, 2008
Stats: Joveta, lv 74 Holy Priest, currently specced 14/46/5 for ease of questing, getting shunted into DPSing instances surprisingly often, and pwning healing instances the rest of the time. I’m going to continue with the potpourri “everything” updates, simply because there’s so much out there and I have no idea where to focus.
Nothing much else needs to be said. How much more amazingly great can you get than little badger/wolverine people? They’re fierce, they’re adorable, and they’ve got bushy tails. The first time I saw one I was riding through Dragonblight picking up flightpaths. I just stopped, squealed, and let them beat on me for a bit while I went off to Tarsus how completely adorable they are. (Disclaimer: My favorite class in D&D is druid. Whenever I play a druid, they have a Badger or Wolverine as their companion. I’m not hugely fond of the “real thing” as far as those particular critters go, but for whatever reason, they’re just my pet of choice in any given game situation. I’m not a fanatic badger-lover, I’m a GEEKY badger-lover.)
Alchemy, however, does not
25 Elixirs and Potions of green and yellow skill for one skillpoint. Saying that again, it took me TWENTY FIVE items (not counting procs) of level which should have me getting a point every 5ish at most to go from 414 to 415 Alchemy. You can bet I was ready to kill something.
In the spirit of full disclosure
And to counter the razzing I’ve been giving Seri for abandoning the Priest Path of Good Stuff… Our guild is rather abruptly looking at a future with no Resto Shammies on the roster. This means (after some discussion with the guild leader) my Resto Shammy side-side-side project might be seeing a bit more raiding time than originally planned. I’m not entirely certain how I feel about this; I enjoy Shaman (though not as much as my beloved Priests) and I did bring it up to the Guild Leader as a “just in case,” I suppose without really realizing how likely the “just in case” could be… In the meantime, I’m left frantically scouring PlusHeal‘s Shaman forum, EJ‘s Class Mechanics forum, and Too Many Annas to try and de-noobify myself as much as possible. For a just in case. Yes, I’m like that.
Old Kingdom is the best instance since Shadow Labs
And for much the same reason. Time for Fun was my favorite fight until I got to Herald Elephanthead in Old Kingdom and… I don’t care if he’s got tentacles, he’s my new favoritest favorite thing ever.
Different isn’t bad
Really, it isn’t. Since Wrath released, through various communities, fora and general “word on the street” level chatter, everyone’s been bitching at everyone else over the stupidest stuff. If you level faster than me, you’re a loser with no life. If you level slower, you need to suck it up and l2p. If you’re a hardcore raider, you’ve got it in for casuals. If you’re a casual, you’re ruining the game for the hardcore.
Do you see how stupid that all sounds? (Of course you do… the class of person reading this blog is much higher than the bitchy idiots with nothing better to do than piss and moan over what other people are doing in the game.) Just… remember it. What should have been drummed into everyone’s head in kindergarten when we were learning to share and using the Crayola “you couldn’t cut yourself with these if you wanted to” scissors was just because someone or something is different than me, doesn’t make them bad.
Seriously, people. Grow up.
