Lets Change Things Up A Little


I currently play on 3 servers in World of Warcraft. Argent Dawn (Alliance), Area 52 (Horde), and Dalaran (Alliance). On each one I like to have a “main” even if I drift off to alts over time and as I finish content. I’ve been trying to decide who I want to play where and I think I’ve finally figured it out. Subject to change of course, but for now I’m sitting with:

  • Argent Dawn: Priest (holy / shadow)
  • Area 52: Paladin (retribution / holy)
  • Dalaran: Druid (restoration / feral)

Easy to tell what I like about each spec since they all have a healing and DPS component. How does this equal any change for me? Well, the paladin on Area 52 is a character I boosted when I first purchased Legion. I bought it ages ago when it was first announced, and I’m glad I did. I probably should have held off on boosting a character since I don’t think I even touched the paladin after I boosted her to 100 until recently, but that’s alright. I spent some time doing the shipyard quests and introduced the character to tanaan jungle. Invasions start in a few hours, and I’m hoping to pick up some more gear (at least a better weapon than the 640 I’m currently sporting) from that. I know I’m going to make a demon hunter but I’ll probably hold off in leveling the class because I know it’s just going to be a mad house of everyone else with their demon hunters. I’ll make the character, reserve the name, and then play when things have gotten a bit more quiet (if there’s such thing).

After running around tanaan jungle with the paladin I’m starting to feel a bit more confident about things. I know folks are saying that retribution spec took a bit of a hit with the latest class changes, but I feel that a lot has to do on gear dependency and lets face it my gear is quite lacking. As I upgrade things piece by piece the character gets better. As I learn my rotations and skills things get easier. I’m confident that if I just focus myself on playing the one character and don’t try to take on every class there is, I will enjoy the paladin as much as I enjoy any of my other “main” characters. A huge change for me since I’ve never played a paladin before in any great capacity.

Servers are down now for their three hour maintenance. It’ll be interesting to see how long they’re REALLY down for, and how crammed the servers are when they come back up. What will you be doing first when you log in? Let me know in comments! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself. <3

    My Ret pally actually seems more fun than before, so I am not sure why people have been griping about the spec.

    More seriously, so far my RetPally seems the least affected of the 4 classes I have at 100. Next would be the warlock but I haven’t taken her into serious fights yet (serious for me).

    I’m sad that I’m going to have to lose my Hunter pet to be viable in this expansion, but it was about time for the pendulum to swing the other way. Still — that bloody spirit cat took me WEEKS to get and I love her to pieces. I’ll be sad to be a petless hunter.

    My feral druid seems *way* less powerful than she did a year or so ago, but who knows. WoW has always been incredibly gear-dependent and my iLev is around 658 for those 4 chars so who knows, it might simply be a little low for Tanaan. I’m just going to wait until the expansion launches and everyone’s gear becomes obsolete, since I don’t actually care about or need a massive iLevel for anything. (There are some advantages to not doing dungeons or raids :D )
