Blizzard treating me well

WellI’ve had my fair share of countless dungeon runs for specific drops and sometimes never ever getting what I run for, for example a decent wand upgrade for my Mage. However the other night Blizzard treat me well with not only the best night for item drops but one of the best Herioc runs I’ve ever done.

To kick start the love I ran Lost City of the Tol’vir specifically. When after particular items I prefer to run the dungeons I need then go random in hope to get them again if I didn’t get the item the first time. One of my rings was only 333 while the other was a rep vendor ring at 346, both still upgradeable. I came here to get my self the Veneficial Band but was happy when the Spirit Creeper Ring dropped from the first boss. Both decent upgrades, both dropping in the same run, and both going to ME!

On a high I then moved onto Halls of Origination where I had done a couple of runs in hope for Blood of Isiset as my one of my trinkets was still a green from quests and the other a decent 346 but DPS orientated. Whilst here though I was blessed not only a 200k+ tank who had took down all the current raid bosses and needed minimal healing but also a DPS group full of casters that pumped out a crazy amount of DPS and needed no upgrades. I was happy to get myself the herioc version of my current Soul Releaser as well as the Solar Wind Cloak both items I had forgot to put on my wish list. Needless to say after the times I’ve felt hard done by, this night of sheer love made it all worth it!

Cataclysm

What can I say… Cataclym is cataclysmically awesome. I’ve loved every bit I’ve experienced so far (however all I’ve ever done is quest through zones).

My copy didn’t come on the Saturday like I had hoped, instead I went down and picked up another but didn’t manage to find the time to play til Sunday evening, and even then I was disrupted by 2 Counterstrike Source matches. Since then though pretty much every minute I’ve had available on my PC at home has been spent on WoW and I’m looking to be on track to hit 85 by the end of the week.

At 83 and 16 bars there isn’t far to go, with the whole of Saturday to myself I should manage the last stretch no problem. I’m currently questing in Deepholm which isn’t too difficult at 83. I’ve got the 2 loremaster quests from Mount Hyjal and Vashj’ir which I thoroughly enjoyed doing and would happily do it again on a second character. The new quests are so much more interesting and I’m loving the new zones and environments, especially Vashj’ir and the entry into the zone.

I’ve yet to find anything I don’t like about the new expansion, the zones, quests, items, everywhere flying is all just good stuff. I haven’t started trying to level my professions or managed any dungeons since you need to find the entrances first but I haven’t heard anything bad about anything yet (except unfortunately my girlfriend keeps getting disconnected every 5 minutes).
