Here's a quick picture of my new mount. Furball, scaring squirrels since 2008. ;)
I decided to head back out to the Plaguelands afterall. But before continuing my epic struggle with all things Scourge, I finally switched over to my new gun, complete with a shiny new ammo bag. Naturally, my weapon skill was about 80 pts shy of where it was supposed to be. Many a "Zomg l2notmiss" look was shot my way from Furball as she pretty much soloed the first 100 mobs or so.
I quickly hit level 55 and pretended my pact with the devil over learning to mouse turn didn't really exist. I was just too tired to try any more new things. On the bright side, I moved up into the highest damage bullets that old world General Goods vendors offer. I sort of vaguely recall that pre-BC the only way to get better ammo was to do something involving Ogrimmar vendors out near the BG queue people and Engineers. It's been 2.5 yrs since I've even played a character that could use a ranged weapon, so it's all a bit hazy. Hopefully these restrictions were nixed with the BC and the Outlands people won't have any issues selling me better ammo, at least for a while.
I realized last night that I somehow missed getting my [Carrot on a Stick], and with [Riding Crop] not available until level 69, I guess it's still important to get. So now the question becomes "Do I think I can solo Gahz'rilla, a level 46 elite, not to mention everything in the direct path between the front door of ZF and her?" I have my mallet and there are reports of level 60's handling her fine (mage and shaman). I'm just about level 56 and my cat's level 55. I'd rather not join a pug if I can help it, mainly because I don't want to spend time clearing the whole thing. It would also be a pain repeatedly asking over the LFG channel since the LFG tool won't let me queue for that instance anymore.
Speaking of instances, the next one on my horizon is BRD and I'm trying to decide if I actually want to run it. The quest loot doesn't seem like that much of an upgrade, although some of the boss drops are. This would also be my chance to get [A Jubling's Tiny Home]. I don't really see this frog around much anymore, especially with the frog out of ZA being so popular. Jubling doesn't really do anything but chirp when you click on him and eat flies. I think my rogue has like 5 different versions of frogs, including this one. So it wouldn't be anything I haven't had before. My priest has a number of pets, too, as does my pally. My hunter only has [Cat Carrier (Siamese)] but I haven't used it yet (and prolly won't). I'm not much into the tiny cats.
One option is to get the Alliance-only [Rabbit Crate (Snowshoe)], which I've been a long time fan of. It's not like I really need the MC attunement at this point, or Dark Iron rep.
