I’ve reached that point in every expansion, where I’m excited about the new stuff to come (patch 4.3, Mists of Pandaria), but I’m completely bored right now.
Since it’s been a while since I’ve posted, Mists looks awesome! Pandas look like fun, the Monk class sounds excellent. Pet combat gives us something else to play with. All good things, the game is expanding and not just in the Raid dimension. That is awesome for those of us that aren’t all that into raiding.
Hallow’s End was excellent and I managed to get the title on Rossini. But I just didn’t have enough time to get it done on others. I also got rings for everyone and that pushed both Schubert and Troutwort into the “heroic ready!” category. So I took Troutwort out in a heroic. It was a good time for him.
My good friend was supposed to come over last week to play WoW, but got in a car accident and couldn’t drive over. But I had prepared by activating the second account and played his little hunter to catch him up to my warrior (at 33) and to get him some better gear so that when he start up again it’s not so painful. That was a lot of fun playing the low level hunter, though more on that later.
But after Hallow’s End, I was sorta…bleh. I leveled up the DK from 76 to 79 though it’s mostly for the Classy Gnomes guild achievement. I’m not really into the DKs and I have no idea if I am doing anything right. At least I finally trained to Raise Ally. I seem to be doing o.k. dps for the most part. I have a bunch of tank gear for her, but not sure if I want to use it. I also sort of want to change her name and gender too. But the kid I mentor made her and named her and so it would be…rude?
But I just haven’t been into WoW lately. All my 85s would basically run either normal dungeons, or heroics and I really don’t have any dungeons that I even like in this Cata series, so it’s not like the other Xpacs where I at least liked some of the dungeons. This one…there isn’t a single dungeon that I “like” to get. So my desire to do heroics just isn’t there. And there’s not much else on them…well professions maybe. Archaeology on Elgar, but again, since I’ve done it so much and still fail to get any rares that I need or the epics…bleh. I can’t keep doing it, the worst part there is the travel.
The lack of end-game for a casual like me, left to the same heroics over and over and ones that aren’t even fun, is annoying, but like I said, I am hopeful with the next expansion! So for now, the alts will probably get some love. I’ve really been enjoying the low levels again, and Outland really isn’t that bad to me either, I find Northrend far more cumbersome.
Okay, end of gripe. A post on low level dungeoning coming soon!
