Slow leveler

Meanwhile, while leveling my new Shaman…
I’ve always felt that I’m a slow leveler. I have a smattering of toons in the mid 30s/40s and only two have ever been at max level for an expansion. I’m pleased that leveling Sapph, my Pandaran, has so far seemed to go more quickly. I’m sure it’s [...]

Just for the perks

Meanwhile, while leveling my new Shaman…
While running through Westfall I received a guild invite out of the blue. Now normally when I get these things on some random alt I immediately reject them. This time the invite was followed by a whisper to the effect that “Hey, we’re a level 25 leveling guild and [...]

Woe to be a lowbie

Meanwhile, while leveling my new Shaman…
It actually took me until level 15 to remember about the account-bound armor. See I’ve tried to level a Shaman in the past.. and I’ve bought a few of the +experience pieces. So it was just a matter of rounding it all up and sending it from one alt [...]

What’s old is new again

sapphAs I mentioned I’ve been playing my new baby Panda shaman, Sapph. The starting zone was interesting, though I agree with Rohan over at Blessing of Kings, if I had to choose a faction based on the actions of Ji vs the actions of Aysa.. let’s just say Aysa needs to get off her butt and -do- something more impressive than meditating on posts.

For the boss fights I thought they ran exceptionally long. My poor baby shaman is plinking away at the boss and it’s taking for-ever.. and I KNOW the boss isn’t going to kill me.. and I KNOW that my warlock could kill this puny little boss in like one dot.. but instead I spent 5-8 minutes plinking away at the big badie. I suppose if I’d done this with 101 other people in the zone that the fight would have gone much more quickly.. but as a singleton.. yeah.. that was kind of long and boring. I didnt’ even have any cool buttons to push. IN FACT!!! In one of the boss fights I ran out of mana.. and was just hitting the boss for white damage for 80% of the fight. THAT TOTALLY SUCKED! (and coincidentally made me -REALLY- miss lifetap)

Shiny and new

Twas the night before patch day.. and all through the house.. yeah.. more of the same. A heroic here, a scenario there, but everywhere, a daily.

I suppose I should prep.. heck I suppose I should have been prepping for the last few weeks.. but.. meh. I find myself below the barrier. My warlock [...]
