Ok, I have 5 … 5!!! Level 80s.. Two of them are what I would consider “well geared” for current Raid content. One is “decently geared” for older raid content (maybe ToC?) and two others are poorly geared or any raid but they can do alright in heroics.
The new LFG system, which many people have been talking about lately, has been a lot of fun for me, especially on those last 2 alts. It also is helping add a few more emblems to the other 3. Part of it all is also helping me learn these classes. I generally know how to play them, but am not as well versed in playing them in a group setting, etc.. I’m learning more and gearing up and it’s a blast. Would I prefer running through instances with friends? Yes, but I always feel, especially with these 2 toons, that they are merely dragging me through and I’m not really contributing enough. So, the LFG, for me, for now, is fun.
I could, of course, do without the waits, but it actually is getting me to do some farming too.. Which I need to do anyway.. I’ve been slacking so much on that. Anyway.. Other stuff that has been happening? I spent a little more time on the professions I had REALLY close to 450 to finally get them there. My engineering is there now (of course, it’s a gnome so he can go to 265…) and I’ve been pushing JC and Enchanting too. Mainly it is just buying or finding the mats and picking the right recipe to do to get there.
I realized while I was on my rogue, flying to do the daily JC, that he doesn’t have epic flying…. OMG, it is soooo slow. So, my 6th (WOW) toon now has epic flying.. Chunking down the large money outlay was difficult until I realized I have spent this money 5 times already.. Imagine if I never got fast flying on any of my toons.. I would be rolling in it.. But.. I would be miserable flying around sloooooowly.. So, since I had the money, I picked it up and I think he is much happier now. Sooner or later I’m sure I’ll start leveling him some more. He is 1/2 way to 72 now, which isn’t bad.. Of course, I could just wait until Blizz makes leveling in Northrend easier just like they did for everywhere else.. Or not..
Anyway, new wing of ICC opens today and, more than likely, I won’t be possibly seeing it until tomorrow. But, If I remember, I’ll try to post my take on any of the bosses we get to. BTW, I want to thank Krizzlybear at Frost is the New Black for a great post that I think will help out my Frost Mage immensely..
