It’s been a month since I posted last, and I wanted to bring you up to speed on The Adventure. The Mage and The Druid are still my primary toons, though I’ve had to call on some higher-level help to clean up an area or two.
The Mage, with Frost spec, has been incredibly fun! She’s currently at level 72, killing orcas in the Borean Tundra.
While I’ve gotten myself into trouble now and again by pulling too many mobs, she pretty much steamrolls through most quests. She still isn’t wearing heirlooms, but you’d never be able to tell. She’s an unstoppable killing machine. Dinging 70 before leaving Outland is helping no doubt as she’s a couple of levels above most mobs.
I have to note that the gear she found in the late 60’s is still way way better, Intellect wise, than anything that’s dropping in Northrend, which I find very odd. Usually the green gear that drops in a new expansion zone is better than anything in the previous expansion’s zone, sometimes even better than blues.
The Stamina on the Northrend gear is much better, but since I’m rarely in need of health, I’m focused on Intellect. I don’t know if I happened to stumble on some absolutely great Intellect gear in Shadowmoon Valley, or if Northrend needed to focus more on Stamina to keep players alive.
The Druid, in Feral Spec, is sitting at level 58 in Shattrath. He too has been loads of fun, and he finished up all of the quests in Kalimdor so I received the Loremaster of Kalimdor achievement!
Entering Outland, I’ve thrown heirlooms on him so he can power through the zones I’ve already completed. I need him to get to Terokkar Forest, fast. The plan is for him to complete Netherstorm after Terokkar, and head over to Howling Ford in Northrend.
Well, Kalimdor is under our belt with all quests completed, and even as I begin Northrend with the Mage, I must admit that I haven’t completed all of the quests/zones in Outland. I gave Shadowmoon Valley a valiant effort with The Mage, but the zone beat me, bad. (This story requires it’s own post!)
I also have Terokkar Forest and Netherstorn to complete, which as I mentioned above, I expect The Druid to handle.
That’s all for now. I’ll soon post the story of my adventure in Shadowmoon Valley, and how I’m bringing out the big guns for revenge!
