2 is better than 1

playing wow over the weekend, i had some buddy time. my long lost buddy (to modern warfare 2) decided to take back his account for a couple of hours and we took a couple of our toons on BWR for H runs.

the realm LFG queue is strange. there are more tanks than healers. so i logged in timeforfun and my buddy queued as dps: xbowstrike, muzzleshot and pyroblast. his fave is xbow, since the GS is 4.7k and he hits really well in SV spec. i tried to persuade him to play xbow as BM (dual spec) but he didnt like it. however, as muzzleshot with 1k GS less, he didnt enjoy it so much, not topping dps meters. muzzle is SV only. finally, as pyro, he had fun with both specs – arcane and frost. diff spec for diff dungeon. he did something silly but works – frostbolt and cone of cold, like some melee toon cos cone has a short range. he still hit pretty hard. but nothing beats blizzarding.

dual specced xbowstrike and pyroblast

dual spec is twice the fun!

i spent the gold on pyro so he could go deep frost for farming critters (i need food to level cooking on some alts) but i oso use this spec for running the H dungeons he queued for while farming. works both ways, since wrath dungeons are mostly group mob and aoe them to death.

as for xbow, i spent the gold so he could spec BM and recover his fancy pets. they have been in cold storage since L60s. a rhino and a dino. so both are now L75 and i will take them farming to level them up to 80.

reputation farming is almost completed

only missmisty is still working on her reps. the other 3 have exalted on the wrath reps. so getting head and shoulders enchants are a piece of cake now.

  • friendly ebon
  • honĀ  wym
  • rev vanguard

once rep farming is completed, then the next step is prof rep farming. ie. farming specific rep for specific alts for their prof recipes.

its not all farming. im having fun too

i am doing fury dps with opheilia who wears mostly tanking gear XD so her dps in LFG is sometimes below the tank. actually, most of the time!

i am oso tanking with a new L80 DK – shortnacity. blood spec with a bit of epic tanking gear. loses aggro to the ICC dps all the time in LFG. rofl. but finally got a blue L200 2h wpn last night so maybe better threat gen next LFG!

will probably bring mib to the LFGs soon just for the fun of running dungeons with combat rogue. i had a lot of fun with assasinatorx, so now that i have retired him, it’s down to blacksteath and mib to carry on the fun. less blackstealth since inscription dont need rep. mib is LW so need rep for some recipes.
