Demise of the Raid Spec.

Okay, after reading more about the major overhaul to the Survival tree which gives no hit rating bonus to Surefooted and punts Trap Mastery all the way to the bottom, I’ve decided to just toss all 61 of my points into Beast Mastery tomorrow and see what happens. The reasoning being that if we have stronger pets than can off-tank, I think we’ll be able to manage even if the occasional trap breaks. This is all so strangely liberating. Wahoo!

Fall Fashion Preview

Wasn’t it just a week ago I did one of these? Wow, leveling goes fast. My pally has learned how to wear plate armor! How one can “learn” this is something I still question, but any opportunity to shop is a good one, I always say. So my mains dutifully forwarded her a generous wardrobe fund so she could be outfitted in the most current gaudily-colored greens available. The result, I must say, is rather disappointing. Maybe it’s to differentiate plate from mail, but those pants definitely make her look very heavy around the thighs. Most distressing. Luckily, when she …

State of the toons address.

Yet another of my “stand back and boggle at their wardrobe” posts 🙂 Can’t say that the last five levels have been kind to my poor pally. I had a hint of this back when I saw the horrid things my boy’s warrior was constantly finding himself in, but it’s still a shock when you have to see it on your own toon. Sigh. The stats are great, but that hauberk is probably the single biggest motivator for level 30s to get a tabard. Even if they don’t belong to a guild. But at least it covers up her chest …

Alt-tastic!

Just another one of my keeping-track-of-alts posts. This one is in honor of my little draenei paladin hitting 30 and getting her warhorse mount. She went on a self-congratulatory shopping spree as a result, picking up several new pieces of gear and a friendly elekk mount as well. Hey, the chunky critters were going for less than 9 gold, how could I say no? And yeah, I’ve started taking off their tabards for these photos because it’s just hard to get an idea of what they’re really wearing otherwise. Which, in some cases, is a good thing. Hello, clown clothes …

They grow up so fast.

I started my WoW account in August of 2007. This July makes it exactly 1 year that I’ve been subscribed. As of last night, I have taken two characters all the way to level 70. While I’ve heard of the hard-core gamers that can turn out a 70 every couple of weeks, I’m still mighty proud of my hunter and druid. The only thing I would change, perhaps, is my initial racial selection. They’re both night elves, which meant that I had to repeat the same set of Teldrassil quests twice. A bit of variety there might have been nice. …
