This weekend, when we weren’t raiding or trying to get caught up on NaNoWriMo (currently I’m about 3000 words behind. My heroine has been thrown into jail, still doesn’t have her memories all back, is considering defecting but doesn’t know where to defect to, and just found out she’s been pregnant for the last 90 years. I love space opera.) Reversion and I worked on our priest-and-warrior pair. They started out a short way into 74. We went and hit Grizzly Hills hard, did the whole Drakuru chain there, ran DTK, and then moved up into Zul’Drak and did the other side of the Drakuru chain. That’s the first time we’ve managed to do that whole chain in order and it was a lot of fun.
I’m leveling my priest as shadow/disc but honestly I haven’t even looked at the disc spec in weeks. I’m a little intimidated by the changes – and I’m adoring the shadow. I can dot things, fear them, Mind Flay, and still cast bubbles or even true heals? Be still my heart. With a prot warrior there to keep mobs off me, we’re practically unkillable. Seriously, I died once yesterday and that was when my scourge disguise failed and SOMEONE then blew up an abom on my head, knocking me back into a horde of zombies. Ahem.
Anyway they’re a good chunk into 75 now. I’d like them to hit 80 before Cataclysm. Another pair will give us versatility. I’ve been enjoying Druid heals more than I feared so I’m not as worried about having a different healer to use, but eh, I like leveling and our guild is so alt friendly I feel bad only having two max level characters right now. Also: my priest is going to be a gnome. Very very soon. I can’t wait. I’ll ditch my ugly elephant for a cute mechanostrider, the hooves for gnomish style, and my long ponytail for a pair of buns. Yay!
Oh, and a friendly reminder to other alt-o-holic types: Pilgrim’s Bounty is the best possible way to level your cooking to 300 or so. Fast, cheap, easy, and available next week. Do it! But then I’m partial to turkeys. So partial I just bought a chest freezer so that I can buy a half dozen turkeys and have them all year long. Like in July… want a turkey? You’re in luck, I’ve got one on hand! Yay! This week I can buy ‘em for 60 cents a pound rather than, oh, $2.40 like they usually are. That makes me very happy.
Ok so I’m easy to please
