Weekend Update

I haven’t blogged much over the last few days but I’ve been busy busy on WoW. We’ll start with friday night, my guilds ICC25 alt run where they take undergeared characters such as my mage, Wizzam. Last week I was lucky enough to grab a heroic ring and necklace, this run I got my hands on a Vanquishers mark of Santification, which coupled with the 108 frost collection I reached after the run I was able to buy the Bloodmage Robe and instantly upgrade to Sanctified Bloodmage Robe before gemming and enchanting. I also managed to get my hands on Shoulders of Mercy Killing, so again not a bad week 🙂 a few steps closer to being strong enough to take down LK.

Also this weekend I got round to making a new alt. I went for a paladin and named him Rommli. We did a little leveling on the Friday before my raid and some more on the Sunday. Have only managed level 21 from a few quests and Deadmine runs, but in no hurry as I have til Cata to get him to 60 which shouldn’t take too long. As well as levelling him, I eventually gave my Deathknight another shot and got him from 56-60, slowly tidying all my characters up to at least 60.

Finally to round my weekend off I caught the start of Brewfest. I’m not really that bothered about getting all the world events on all my characters so Wizzam is going to taking this on. I’ve decided trying to raid with 2 characters isn’t really that viable so Tynee is going to get shelved from now til sometime in Cata. Wizzam will become my end-game character as he was in TBC where as Tynee will become my PvP character to spend most of his time in Battlegrounds and ganking PvE’ers waiting for dungeons.
Back to Brewfest, I was quite surprised that me and a couple of my friends managed to do all the achievements within about 30mins as most events take quite a while. The only one I have left is the dance in Dalaran and brew of the month/year which will only take a few days farming the tokens. I am hoping for the Kodo mount, and fingers crossed I get as lucky as this guy on the first day [image]. I already have the Halloween achievements on Wizzam so come October he’s going to get a little bored but I’ll be able to spend time on my other characters cleaning up their levels and professions in preparation for Cataclysm.

Another Alt…

Alliance BadgeWith Cataclysm on the Horizon I’ve decided to tidy up a few of my characters, namely my priest as I mainly made her to give me an experience at healing but after tying her up with tailoring she was/is going to be my bag vendor. However as much as Mind Control appeals to me I just haven’t been able to push myself to level her.

In the time leading up to Cata launch, instead of pushing myself to level up to 63 in order to break the 300 cap on my tailoring, I’ve decided to take an easier route and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I’m going to buy a new account for a friend so we can RAF (recruit a friend) at least one character each to 60. Then I’ll use 18 of those reward levels to get my priest up to 60 aswell as throw a few spares on other <60 characters such as my 55 warlock etc. But like the dilemma I had before with what to level my Worgen as I'm now stuck on what to level with this RAF. I need a Tank character, it goes against my squishy tendencies but there has been countless times my friends ask for some help on a quest or dungeon and none of my characters are strong enough to take them through. Deathknights have never really appealed to me, my first and only is still stuck on 56 since launch. Other than DK, I have 4 classes left to pick up; Shaman, Druid, Paladin and Hunter. My hunter is being left for my Worgen starting zone and I may try a Shaman if I can't push myself from 1-60 in the new Azeroth with my Hunter, so its down to a Paladin or Druid tank. Both can heal and mix it up to play multiple roles, both are known as great tanks although Druids edge ahead on the healing side if I ever did want to mix it up. But Paladins can do great AoE tanking which would help out massively in boosting friends through dungeons. I've got about a day to decide as my copy of WoW is in the post so no pressure!
