Had some fun playing Stinkywind, my brand spankin’ new Warlock this weekend.
I’m trying a lot of different things all at once on this one.
BUT! I ain’t abandoning Windshadow and Windburn. In fact, I went into Sethekk Halls and Shadow Labyrinth with Nasirah, Squirrelz, Cassieann and Wulfa last Saturday to see if we could get Wulfa a few tasty drops.
Sigh. No Sonic Spear. We ran them both in normal mode, so we messed around and had a bit of fun on some of the pulls.
Okay, I messed around. I think Squirrelz was getting grouchy at my ‘not correct’ methods, but hey… sometimes, you’ve gotta have some fun. And when you have TWO decked out feral druids on the run, you got twice the tanking love! Plus, Wulfa knows her hunter skillz, she was doing some mad chain trapping, and had all the right moves. So, I pushed the boundaries a bit and bounced around.
Sometimes I think I am the player you do NOT want in your pug.
“Why the hell did you pull the whole room???!!??”
“Relax, it’s normal mode, we can handle it. Chill. Live a little.”
“But we DIED.”
“Okay, so die a little. It’s only gold, go run a daily. Look at it this way.. now we know one way it won’t work. We’re like Edison! We’re geniuses!”
Yeah, I’m just the life of the party…
SO! Also got Windburn a little love, I pushed the rest of the way to Exalted with Aldor so I could get my Greater Inscription… AND feel that I accomplished something in terms of rep. In fact, it got me so excited to close off one rep grind, that I did all my dailies for SSO last night on Windburn. Gonna push on to Exalted there. I have Lola’s Eve and Charlotte’s Ivy, so I need a good ring upgrade to remove Lola’s Eve before it would be worth it to equip the necklace, but at least I’ll have it in the bank. And then… Consortium! Gack.
Windburn also got a bit of love in a different way… thanks to the diligent efforts of Cassie, who checked the AH and networked with players and broadcast in the dreaded /trade channel, yesterday I got the very last card I needed to build my Blessings deck!
And coincidentally enough, today is the first day of Darkmoon Faire in Goldshire! So I got it just in time to turn it in for the Darkmoon Card: Crusade.
But my Warlock… this is turning out fun. I hit level 15 by Saturday night. I’ve got my blueberry, named Krakkrit (just like Kemangi!) and I’ve got a nice wand, and I’m speccing Affliction. Got my instant cast Corruption, I’m having fun. I have no idea what points to put where after that, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out.
And I’m leveling 100% in the Draenei starting lands. I hit level two and begged a port to Shatt for my hearth, and then I went straight to Exodar. I’m gonna be a gnome on a elephant! Woot!
Yep, every two levels I hearth to Shatt, port to IF, train my Warlock skills, and then mess around until I can hearth back.
Let me tell you, I never experienced OP-ness until I was able, at my little level, to handle a four pull like this.
Working the satyrs, I pull a single mob by sending the blueberry after him, stack dots, and then mob two sees me and comes running.
I send blueberry after mob two to pull him off me, and keep dots refreshed on mob one. The first mob dies from the dots shortly after mob two gets pulled off me and dotted up, and then mob number three comes up on me from behind.
This time I remember I have Fear, so I Fear mob three out of my face and keep burning mob two down with wand. Just as mob two is about to die, a fourth mob comes rolling on in.
So I send the blueberry after number four, reFear number three, and focus on burning down four as two finally dies. A quick dotting and wanding and mob four dies just as my blueberry dies and mob three comes on in for the kill.
So I reFear three, resummon my blueberry, and burn down the mob when he comes on back.
Four dead bodies, and I never even had to pop my Healthstone.
Are you freaking kidding me?
I love my Warlock… Druids are awesome when you get kitty at 20, but I’m only level 15 and I’m playing mob ping pong.
And did they really have to make those idiot satyrs in Bloodmyst Isle THAT aggressive? Seriously, wtf…
