Well! How was your weekend? Any good drops? Any new news or cool occurrences to share?
I do! :) I figure you knew I was going to say that. Finally.. Finally.. Finally.. My Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix dropped. I was soooo happy. Actually, so were the other raiders since that means:
- No more loud gun in their ears while fighting.
- No more me wishing (wishing, wishing) for Big Bad Wolf opera event to drop the wolf gun (although I still would take it if it dropped).
I think we are all getting tired of that opera event, so when I say I want it to be BBW, everyone groans. No more! Bring on R&J.. Bring on Oz! I’m ready, willing and bow-able. 🙂
Above is a comparison from my Musket to the Bow. I have not "scoped" the bow yet. I’m still debating the insane mat requirements for the +crit scope. I might just pick up a +10 or +12 damage scope for now until I am willing to part with a significant chunk of change for a "relatively small" crit bonus.
Above is my char sheet with DPS after picking up my arrows from Cenarion Expedition. This includes Trueshot and Aspect of the Hawk. I have been enjoying the changes to AotV since 2.2. I notice that I can hang around mid-point in mana on long boss fights if I don’t go "crazy". I also like that I can start the fight with Hawk and then move to Viper later when my mana drops a little to pick up the higher rate.
Over the weekend, we again cleared Kara up to Nightbane. Nightbane gave us a few issues mainly due to our Main Tank disconnecting a couple of times when we were "in our groove". I am getting better at the redirect on landing business and we had him down below 25% at least once [no more aerial phases!].
Last night Pil, Kezz and I spent time on our Draenei alts. I’m up to level 19 already. I have to say that it is much more fun leveling an alt when you have others to join you on your adventures. Also, obviously, much easier. Frannk (my alt) is a Warrior and the others are a Shaman and a Priest so it is nice having multiple healers to keep me up while I learn what all the buttons are for (and how to conserve/generate rage). I now have a 19 Warrior, 25 Rogue, 30 Druid, 42 Priest, 70 Hunter. :) And those are just the alts I play regularly. I also have a Paladin, a Mage, a Warlock and a Shaman that I don’t really play much.. They are all < lvl 20 though.
My 25 Rogue is my bank alt, enchanter and tailor. My 30 Druid is a Alchemist (I might add another crafting job to her since…). My 42 Priest is my gatherer (Herbalism/Mining). So far, Frannk is Enchanting/Skinning. I figured with all the greens you get in the Draenei starting area, having the ability to disenchant your own stuff (and enchant it too) is a boon. I may look at the possibility of having more of my alts enchanters..
That’s about it. I’m still on a high that I finally got my bow. I think we are going back in tonight to try to get Nightbane down before the reset and then this week is not my Kara week so I will probably be working on alts (or Half-Life 2 – Orange box!!! ).. I’ll see you on the flip-side.
