It was a bit of a mixed bag of a week last week in World of Warcraft. Yay for holidays and extra gaming time and all, but I keep jumping from project to project without really settling down. One of these projects was checking out some of the anniversary content and downing a trio of world bosses who were resurrected from Way Back When for the amusement of us veterans. Oh Lord Kazzak, are you tired of being our punching bag?
I did get a couple of nice pieces of gear upgrades, which probably happened because in my absence my Death Knight fell behind the gear curve once again. Oh well, I hear there’s this new expansion coming out, so I’m just going to time travel to next August, grab some green quest rewards, and then come back to be the envy of raiders everywhere.
Another one of these projects was getting back in touch with my poor, neglected Dwarf Shaman. I had a ton of fun with her in the waning days of Warlords of Draenor, at least until that horrid 7.0 patch came along and gutted her easy going enhancement lifestyle. Gone were her totems, her elemental pets, and her rotation.
I had tried numerous times to see what I could do with her after that, but it was a hard sell. Picking an artifact meant I needed to at least temporarily commit to a spec, so resto was out because no one in their right mind wants to level as a healer. I was so mad at the enhancement changes that I went over to elemental — I mean, at least my pets were there. But after a lot of experimentation and trial, I couldn’t find a really solid build that worked for me… and so I found my way back to enhancement.
At least this time I got the artifact and did some homework to see what most people were doing with their rotations. It’s mostly smacking things around with a hammer and trying not to die. I find that my health can dive really quick if I’m not paying attention, but at least there are instant heals and my helpful wolves every now and then.
I seem to have activated the Super Bloody mode. This game is rated M for “MOM! DAD IS PLAYING A VIOLENT GAME!”
Actually, I think this was some enemy spell. Still, it’s fun to take pictures out of context.
Tell me, why can’t I loot and sell all of this treasure after killing these mobs? I’d be set for life with WoW Tokens if I could!
Aw little murloc buddies. At least there are missions to make friends with you and help you on your way so that you can grow up and be a quest objective for an expansion. Don’t forget to tote around some vendor trash when that happens!
Do murlocs wear boxers or briefs? I’m 95% sure that this guy is rocking boxers, but I’d have to get closer than I’d feel comfortable to confirm. At least my kids thought this little undies window was pretty hilarious.
