As we know, World of Warcraft dinged 4 about a week ago (Nov 23).. Well, turns out I stared playing 1 week after it came out.. My Wowiversary was Nov 30, 2004! That was the day I created my account and began playing. I took a little bit of a time out (but still paid for my account, so does that count?) when Fimlys hit 59 or so (maybe 58) and then came back a bit before BC came out. Since then I have, obviously, been much more dedicated to the game (Blog, Podcast, ALTS up the wazoooo). So, happy wowiversary to me…
Anyway. Back to doings. . Yes, Fimlys hit 80 (see previous post). Haven’t done any heroics yet, but he did get his Epic flying from all the extra gold I have been collecting since hitting 80. I finished all the Storm Peaks stuff (other than quests that require a certain rep) and only zones that are left with significant quests are Borean Tundra (I didn’t go there after HF) and Icecrown. I need to spend time on the IC quests since I need Ebon Blade rep for my head enchant.. Bah!
We gave Naxx 10-man a shot last night with a bunch of newly minted 80s. Lets just say that either we picked a bad boss to start with (The first one in the spider wing), we are not well geared enough, or we just are missing something essential in this fight. I keep hearing, “Naxx is easymode”.. Well, newly minted 80s as we were with no heroics and not too many blues between us … It was no ezmode. It is also possible it was our group makeup. We had 2 Warriors tanks, Priest/Druid/Paladin healing and Mage/Warrior/Shaman/Hunter/Warlock for DPS. We were kicking around about 7.5k group DPS and just having issues all around.
Anyway, maybe we should be pushing for more gearing via Heroics now I think. I’m also working on leveling my druid (she is almost 72) and my priest (he a little more than halfway to 71). I’m still enjoying the questing even if I have done the quests already. Blizzard made it enjoyable to go from quest to quest without too much running around or delays.
So, anyway. Tonight will be one of a few things (no particular order):
- Run Heroics/Other Instances with Fimlys
- Level the Priest, solo
- Level the Druid, with group.
- Do quests on Fimlys in IC for rep and gold
All of these should include doing dailies on Fimlys. I need to start doing them for rep, especially Hodir. They have the shoulder enchants and I need to get them to at least honored I think. Right now there are 3 dailies there and also I need to continue doing my cooking daily.. So, anyway. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
