Out of the closest… again.
So just for the record… yes I have a Warlock, an Affliction Warlock..
But I am wondering what rock the Bear has been hibernating under, because the rest of you you know I have had it for a long time.. some time in 2008 I started my Lock Twinking adventures with Twinking your level 19 Warlock: Part 1. Introduction. The thing is, I could never bring myself to finish the experience, so the Lock was languishing at level 17 for 4 years.
There has been a long quiet spell in our guild lately and Dara and I found ourselves playing BGs over and over again… it was starting to get stale. One of the problems with BGs is the scenery doesn’t change too often, so I decided to change the personal scenery and add the Lock to my BG stables (currently housing Mage, Shaman, Druid, and an unloved DK).
So the Lock got dragged out of storage, Dara dug up her young Shaman and we started the leveling process.
That didn’t last long… REROLL!
Not long after that we rerolled… Did I say I liked the Lock?
Now we had two alts each, A Lock and a Pally for me… A Shaman and a Rogue for Dara… leveling in tandem.
One of the advantages of leveling on one character for 5 levels, then switching to the other, is there isn’t much time to get sick of the 1st one… at the 1st sign of boredem, we just switch toons.
One of the disadvantages is it feels like we just completed that painful collection quest… oh yeah we did… on the other toons.
There was a moment, early on, where I found myself face to face with a Horde Mage in WSG.
So I killed a Mage!
and yes I liked it.
Stupid Mage should have iceblocked…
Our “juniors” are now well into their 70’s and some things are very clear now.
- I do the killing in this party!
Somehow, Dara always managed to arrive at the scene of a fight as I dispatch the last of the 10 mobs I engaged. If she dismounts at all, it’s only to loot… but then I guess someone has too… I have already run off to the next pack of mobs either cackling quietly, or banging my shield against my head.
- Melee in PvP is hard(er)
Target Dummies stand still (but I am yet to kill one).
Mobs run to the slaughter
Players run in irritating circles.
- Our guild’s top rogue has taught Dara everything she knows
She always forgets poisons
Stealth is for noob-rogues
run away, run away
- I prefer the Pally to the Lock
Well, when I can catch whatever it is I am trying to kill
and in comparison to my Mage… well it looks good in level 60 PvP gear…
Likes and Dislikes…
Not even my party likes…
His time is coming again.. meanwhile he is having a much needed break. He’s currently vacationing at a spa, where the specialties include long warm soaks in baths filled with the blood of the Hode and Tauren BBQ’s.
Meanwhile… I just wonder when Bear and Matticus are going to come out of the Warcraft closet… when are they going to stand up and shout
I ROLLED A GNOME AND I LIKED IT!
Gnomer and Out!
Edit: A certain Meerkat has come out of the closet and admitted he has rolled a Mage.. bet he killed a Lock and liked it!
PS: Yes I am alive. Yes I am well. Unfortunately I don’t have too many spare seconds in a day to rub together, and the few I have I spend relaxing in a pool of Horde blood. But I’m not gone, I’m even entertaining Navispam on occasions…
Hopefully some time soon I will increase my blog output to more that 1 post a quarter.
