going places with greeni

yup, my gnomie priest has been to all lowbie dungeons via LFG, up to mara part 1 and rfk.

for mara, there is no achievement until you kill the end boss (piggy princess), so part 1 is just that. you get your goody bag and call it a day.

unfortunately, no chance to be dps. always queue as both heals and dps but always get heals. it seems the ratio now is seriously unbalanced. heals are rarest, followed by tanks and then dps. when i queue as tank on stormfrost or incorrigible (cant heal now. all his healing gear passed to greeni). i have to wait too.

i guess if i wasnt BoA geared, i wont want to heal either. too easy to run out of mana these days. every so often, i have to stop and drink a whole bottle of whatever is my best mana drink for my level. if i wanna dps AND heal, i’d have to stop and drink after every mob fight. and that would slow down the whole group. so i give up and just heal, dot (SWP) and wand, and just keep running. cos the tanks are now practically top dps. i guess we wont see the CC stuff until we hit cat dungeons.

although there was a bit of cc in a few boss dungeon designs. ok. 1 so far, that i can see. it was when i was tanking in dire maul part 2 on incorrigible. the end boss immol’thar summons 2 ogre adds and a beast (doggy?).  when we failed to cc, the ogres tore the party apart. once we cc the 2 adds, we could down the boss and then his adds easily.

anyway, back to greeni. i guess im gonna have to put her in cold storage soon, as i will be getting cat in a couple of days. zappel and spiritcat and moodykat and timeforfun will be my focus come cat. in the meanwhile, i have given up on her completing the quests in STV. so she will probably level via dungeons for a while. since she is highly in demand as a healer. haha.

just when i thought i was on easy street…

…. i found myself back on the road again. but a whole different route altogether!

a whole new world

last night, i had to play a toon with a lot of spare EoTs, and then i thought a bit. (a little bit of thinking is bad for your health!) xbow was on his quest to get exalted with the kaluak, and since he queues for LFG while flying around northrend, he has accumulated a ton of EoTs and not really needing to upgrade his gear (cos it is blocked by the high requirement level for ICC and since no one runs ToC these days, you are not going to get the gear for ICC unless you buy from AH which i cant afford.)

i thought a bit, and decided to gear my horde hunter up. swiftmender is level 24. so he could use the BoA items for a long long time. so i transferred the BoA shoulders and bow which muzzleshot had used, and with xbow’s spare EoTs, bought him the BoA mail chest and health trinket.

after completing the kaluak dailies for xbow, i logged into swiftmender and equipped him with his BoA stuff. then realised, he hasnt trained for riding and he has a free magic pony (celestial steed). but damn, riding requires 4g and my horde toons are bare bones! swift only has like 1g on him!

fastest way to make money – queue for LFG XD. so in short sequence, he cleared BFD, Gnomeregan, RFK and came up with enough dough for class training and riding. and now he can prance around on his magic pony!

i am going to ignore profs while levelling this toon. cos i dont think i will do a full set of toons to support him. at least, not now.

back to school again

i have been so used to seeing my hunters never miss their shots, so it was quite an opener to see miss after miss especially hitting mobs higher level than me. cos most mobs in RFK and Gnomeregan are like a couple of levels higher than me. fortunately, BoA gear means i was 1st or 2nd on dps.

the dumbest thing was, i forgot what the viper spell icon looked like, and i thought, hmmm, why didnt i stock up water on this toon? for a while, in BFD, when i ran out of mana i just autoshot! fail – noob – huntard. then i looked at my spells a bit more, then found the viper spell. haha. after that, never looked back!

doing quests was a pain. half the time i didnt know who or where or what to do. even with questhelper. that was why i chose to queue LFG. at least i have done all the classic dungeons up to BRD. now with a mount, i will be able to get them done faster. running on foot just isnt cool anymore.

now that he has no more rested xp, i will put him in cold storage until next week.
