The warlock is starting to look pretty cool, and that’s always fun. I decided to change my talents around once more, and now have a destruction spec that seems to be working quite a bit. By ‘working’ I mean my AoE dps dropped slightly from my previous build – but my single target dps rose from 1.5 to 3-4k which was a vast improvement, especially since when I’m doing random heroics I’m never quite sure which dungeon I’ll get and there are some that have significantly less AoE needs then others.
It took me a while to learn the spec, and how to optimize it. It also allows me to use my imp minion, which doesn’t cost any shards, and I’m noticing that I don’t run out nearly as fast which is great.
Another milestone reached, I broke 4k GS for the first time ever. No, GS doesn’t mean everything and I’m not one of those players that shun people who have a lower GS, but it meant that I’ve been working really hard at getting upgrades, and succeeding. I believe I’m standing at 4166 exactly. A great deal of this was due to the fact that I managed to gain enough emblems to purchase my T9 robe, which also gives me my four set bonus. I’m sporting the robe, pants, gloves, and shoulders. I’m saving up emblems now for the 75 emblem hat since it comes with a meta slot and is far superior to the previous set.
When I get tired of grinding dungeons (I do anywhere from 5-10 a day it seems) I find random achievements to work on. My latest stint has me working on obtaining keys for various zones (most no longer require these keys, or if they do you can use a blacksmith made key and gain entry just the same). I enjoy working on these achievements, they’re fun and give me little unique features for my characters to enjoy.
I also did Gnomeregan for the first time on the warlock (yes, I’ve been there with other characters) and probably had more fun then was due blowing up gnomes. I also obtained my first title – the patient. This was awarded from grouping with 50 other random people in LFD, which is something that is difficult for me to gain since 90% of the time I’m running dungeons with 1-4 guild mates. I’m eager to reach 100, and gain a new pet (perky pug!) which is something else I’ve taken to collecting.
WoW is certainly not the most difficult game out there to play, but I find it fun in its simplicity. It’s very nice to be able to log in for an hour and feel as though I’ve actually accomplished something. I enjoy the look of the game quite a bit (though there are plenty who do not) and things are going relatively well. It’s nice to be enjoying the game on a very basic level, and I’m really looking forward to Cataclysm.
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
