The Proof is in the Emblems

I’ve been taking Fizz along on Daily Heroic runs.. Are my friends just dragging him through.. Um.. yeah.. Do I feel bad about it? Sure. But, I’m hoping that the main thing wrong with his DPS is gear (it could be me, but I am not willing to agree to that yet.. ). From what I hear, the fastest way to gear up is to do the daily heroic and run heroics in general. Now, getting them to run him through many heroics a day isn’t going to happen, so I stick to the daily. It is going to take forever.

There was talk when they upgraded what emblems drop that it was going to make it “easy” to gear up alts. If by “easy” you mean having to run a bunch of heroics each day, every day then sure.. But the reality of getting people to drag your sorry lack-of-dps (or whatever) butt through the instances is limited.

Obviously you have to ask what benefit they gain from helping you out? Doing the heroic daily? Good benefit in gold and Emblems of Triumph.  Doing the other heroics? Not so much. So, I’m getting there, but it is taking a while. I think the faster way to gear would be a run through Naxx 10 or 25 or even tagging along in an Uld 10/25.. 25 might be better since I wouldn’t be such a drain on the total DPS. Ah well, maybe I can convince the RL to get one of those together at some point. 

I like playing the mage and would like to get him at least geared up to do DPS at the same level as my priest can heal. (Do I have any idea what that means? Not really, but it sounded good). 

What else is going on?  We’ve been regularly clearing ToC 10/25 non-heroic and Ony.  We still haven’t gotten past the Northrend Beasts in the 10man Heroic though.  Is 25 man heroic any easier?  I know from experience 25man can be a little more forgiving because losing someone isn’t as horrible. More backup healers/dps/maybe tanks.

HHV_voicetag I’ve been getting a bunch of Triumph emblems on my Druid and Hunter but having a tough time finding things to purchase with them. I know I want some of the new tier, but I only have 1 trophy and have been saving the emblems until I get a second. I’ve also been working on leveling up the Paladin. He’s up to level 77 and in Sholazar Basin. Other than that, things are quiet. I’ve been really busy at work and it’s cut down the time I’ve had to post and do other stuff.

Over at Azeroth United we’re ramping up our first community event, the Hearts, Hands and Voices for Child’s Play Charity Event. We’re really excited about it. It starts the beginning of November and right now we’re getting the word out and asking for audio promos, sponsors, etc.
