New Draenei hunter is now named “Nocc”. I wanted “Nock” (the split on the back of an arrow that keeps it on the bowstring) but that wasn’t available. Friday I was sick. Hacky cough, sore throat, no going to work. I spent the day drinking tea with a blanket across my knees.. gnoshing on pot pie while playing with my new addon (Tourguide) and leveling Nocc. My NE hunter was level 21. I didn’t feel comfortable deleting the Night Elf until I had an equivalently leveled hunter. I figured this would take a few weeks. HAH!
Fiancee has fridays off.. so he decided to start a new alt with me. He started a druid and we began leveling up together. We made 10 on Friday, 19 on Saturday and 22 on Sunday. We also did Deadmines twice on Sunday. Yes, we did nothing but play all weekend. Well, honestly I also did two loads of laundry. Oh.. and drove across town on Sunday to break into a friend’s van.
Last night I logged into Tikah (NE Hunter), stripped her naked, mailed everything off and deleted her. As an aside, a race that has a blue/purple skin tone with dark blue hair should -NOT- wear yellow underwear. It was a little bit painful deleting a level 20+ toon.. but the free Draenei heal and the +1% to hit just make the Draenei superior to the Night Elf.. and really, what do I need two hunters for?
It’s interesting changing from a healing role (Tatia the Paladin) to a DPS/CC role. Although I understand the concept of chain trapping.. it’s a lot harder in practice. I’m doing fairly well at managing my aggro.. but I really need to work harder at it.
Fiancee is very excited about playing a druid. This will be his first non-DPS toon. He’s enjoying the tanking and says he’s gotten a better understanding of why our warrior tank is so twitchy in instances and will sometimes pull before the rest of the party is ready. More rage good.
He and I spent a lot of time on Friday/Saturday playing as a couple. Once he got it, he spent almost all his time in bear form. This worked out fairly well.. but when things went bad we really missed not having a healer.. in fact, I’m getting a kick out of having Nocc act as his healer. Hunter healer (Gift of the Naaru) for the win.
The levels are flying by very quickly.. I -love- Tourguide. This quick grind over the weekend puts us in the perfect position to take advantage of a lot of the changes coming in 2.3. Whee.
[Edited to add:]
Forgot to mention.. for her first (and currently only) pet, Nocc tamed a Ravager. Big and red. So far I’ve had 4 random people ask me where I got the Ravager. Best thing ever.. named him “Bug”.
