Finally.. Finally.. Finally.. What I never thought would happen.. Happened.. Of course, I am talking about Furis, my Paladin, hitting level 80. I’ve been leveling him up for a while in the off-raid times and such. When he hit 79 I finally actually believed that he would make it to 80 some day (maybe even before Cataclysm). Last night, he/we did it. I finished up in Zul’Drak. I was just starting up quests there and turned in one last one to the Ebon Blade there and Kaboom.. Or was it more like a Ding.. Hmm. Ding probably..
What did I do first when hitting 80? I flew back to Dalaran, ported to Ironforge and proceeded to wipe away my Holy secondary spec (Ret is the primary for now) and replace it with a Prot spec.. Yes.. Furis is going to be a tank. I have never had a max level tank and in the grand scheme of things, he really still isn’t “max” level. His gear for tanking is a mix of quest greens and blues mixed with some crafted gear (he’s a blacksmith).
Our raid leader was pretty happy though and offered a few runs through ToC10 to gear him up. I, of course, need to start reading around on Pally tank blogs. I really don’t have any idea what I am doing and I will need to see if there are any addons I need.. If there are any macros I should write.. Which skills to put on what bar and bind to what keys… Etc. Etc. Etc. Anyone who wants to help me.. I’ll take what I can get.
So, anyway. I was pretty happy with that, if you couldn’t tell. Next alt? Well, the Rogue is 71.. I really want to level him if for no other reason than he is my JC and Enchanter.. Of course, the Paladin is an enchanter too.. Why? Disenchanting really ;P Didn’t need him for anything else. So, that’s about it for now.
Oh.. Don’t forget to check out Polygamerous, a new podcast that yours truly is a part of. It’s a video/computer game podcast and, in my biased opinion, lots of fun. Please have a listen and let us know what you think. We’re already up to Episode 3!
