Weekend chores kept me from doing as much gaming over the weekend as I would have liked, but I still managed to inch my way to level 100 on my main in World of Warcraft. The leveling was incredibly fast, I was expecting it to be much slower. It dragged a bit from 92-95 and then flew the rest of the way. As soon as I reached 100 I went to the proving grounds as you’re unable to queue for some things without first, well, you know. Proving yourself. I thought I would have issues because I wanted to queue for dungeons as a healer but all of the gear I have been getting is for DPS, but I beat the silver healing scenario without too many issues (mana by the end of the 8th wave was pretty low, but no one died) and I’m pretty close to 610 ilevel (I think I’m at 608 right now). I got a 665 ilevel cloak at level 100 that was bind on equip from a random mob in the world, so that really helped.
Of course reaching 100 had other perks too. My garrison can now be fully upgraded, or at least it could if I had the resources. Like everyone else out there I’m still trying to collect enough for my upgrades, which of course doesn’t come easily when I’m constantly shifting my buildings around. My first follower is about to hit 100, and I’m hoping I figure out how you gear them up. Thanks to the salvage yard I have all sorts of tokens to upgrade their gear and weapons to 615, but at this point I don’t even know how to do that.
I’m really enjoying WoD so far, and it seems like Blizzard has a hit on their hands. So many friends have returned and even though I know it’s a temporary thing, it has been a LONG time since I have seen so many of my friends all enjoying themselves in the same game.
