This weekend didn't exactly fit the mold. We worked on our new lock/warrior combo for part of the day Saturday. They both made it to level 14 before I decided the lock wasn't exactly fun. For one, a DoT class doesn't make for a good dps partner. Kragthor would mow down the mob before I could even get a second tick in. The imp was really irritating me with his stand back and cast philosophy. I don't know how many times he aggro'd extra stuff. Then I got my blueberry. His name? Mezzthang. That's right. Blizzard gave me a voidwalker with a drag queen's name. That was the last straw.
So I cleared out her inventory, kissed the +100 skill in flowers, tailoring, and cooking goodbye, and deleted the lock. I jumped in the char creation screen and made me a mage. She's pretty much everything I wanted the lock to be - quick spells, heavy damage, no stupid pets. I also have this awesome skanky green outfit going on. Hilarious. The downside is I'm plowing through the same belf starting area for the 4th or 5th time now. On the other hand, I'm getting darn efficient at it. I dinged level 10 last night, snagged me some sheepage, and blew some murlocs up. If you head over past Sunsail Anchorage, you can still see bits and pieces of them littering the beach.
On the raiding side of things, we didn't have the healers to field a solid SWP group for Felmyst. So instead we cleared MH, then hit up Al'ar and Kael in TK. We one-shotted Al'ar and two-shotted Kael. The second one surprised me, considering how complicated the fight is, how long it's been since any of us have done it, and the fact that a number of people in the raid haven't done it at all. Basically our goal was to get new people access to their MH rings, plus the transporting necks in BT. Even though the attunements are gone, the items are still high quality.
I don't miss TK at all. Like not even a tiny bit. The trash was hard, the loot mediocre, and the end boss ridiculous. I mean at one point the tanks had to wear arcane resist dresses for Solarian. /palmface I also don't like how hard it is to see anything in there, with the hot pink floors and the glowing crap on the walls. Give me a dark, damp cave any day of the week.
Apparently one of the horde guilds on our server got a second warglaive last night, completing a set after 4 total Illidan kills. There's another guild that's downed him a couple of times and have one. How many do we have after about 5 months? Zero. It'll also be 15 weeks this Wednesday since we last saw the Pearl Inlaid Boots off Naj'entus. W.T.F.
