Oh Look, SQUIRREL!
I was just talking about how I had logged my hunter in, played her a bunch, got her ready for the first tier of raids, and how I was hoping she would become my new main.
I had no desire to log her in over the weekend, so I took a look at one of my paladins. I have two. One horde, one alliance. I prefer horde and I always have even though a majority of my friends play alliance. I’ve faction changed so many times it makes me dizzy. Anyway, I logged my horde paladin in and blew the cobwebs off of her armour, eager to get her first artifact weapon.
I decided to stray from the norm a little bit. I knew my priest played better (ie: easier) when I went discipline due to the heals even though it was less DPS than going shadow. I decided I would stick to my protection stance and get my shield / sword artifact, opting for better survivability over faster kills.
So far, I’m incredibly impressed. Mobs were melting like butter and my paladin is wearing pretty shoddy gear. A handful of heirloom for the experience bonus, and some blues back when the invasions to level up to 100 were a thing. Her artifact was also the easiest one I’ve gotten to date (I have priest, druid, and monk artifacts so far) and it sort of left me scratching my head wondering if that’s all there was to it. NOT that I am complaining!
I picked a zone to start in, and set out to reach level 101. It took me about an hour which made the leveling process seem much more appealing to me. I’ve got 700 blacksmithing but only 200 mining, so my professions are a mixture of odds and ends. So far I’m enjoying playing the character a ton, but the true test of whether or not this will be the character for me is who I’ll be playing next week. If I could just settle down with one character and not 800 I know I would feel so much better about my gaming experiences.
We’ll just have to see! As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
