Alts (WoW)

You are not prepared!

Over the past week I've been working on alts a bit, the Druid and Lock. I ended up enjoying the lock a good bit more, and Dire has been leaning towards playing his DK (both are on the horde), so I figure why not have a 90 on that side too? The lock is really nice for a lot of things and works well with the DK for the things we like to do. The Druid is a lot of fun but balance just has such a weird feeling overall, I do like it but I just can't put my finger on it. I would say it is one of the tougher classes to solo with, not hard but it is much easier to die. Thing is, I only want to play her as balance, so I'll get her there eventually, 90 that is.

We're both sitting at 89, Dire and I, hoping to hit 90 in the next day or two. I've joined a friendly little guild and they have been really refreshing, always wanting to do things, very alive. I wasn't looking for a guild but I was asked to join, so I figured it can't hurt to make some new friends on the horde. I also ran into a friend from years ago, which was so nice. I didn't know if he played or not still. He's even offered me a spot in a raiding guild. Which is very tempting! While I have not really wanted to raid a lot over the past expansion (Cata) it would be fun to raid a couple of days a week with friends. I'm still thinking on it, I don't know if the hours will be something I can swing yet or not.

Other than that we've really been having fun on these characters. I think I may just park the hunter for awhile and work on the lock, I really enjoy it. We love to run old content, Dire and I. It is one of our favorite things to do. We've been able to do so much, with these, and we're not even 90 yet.

Over the past few days we've run a lot of BC raids including The Black Temple, which was the highlight for me. I've never been in there and I didn't think we'd be able to do it, but it was much easier than I thought it would be. We have a lot of self healing which helps. I got some great transmog items like the felhunter staff Illidan drops, I had really wanted that!! It is so perfect for a lock!

I also won a ticket, off the black market, for the brawler's guild. I haven't even used it! I have been toying with the alts and just not taken time to do so. Once we hit 90 with these couple of characters we'll both spend some time with it I think. It looks really cool and I can't wait. If you haven't gotten a ticket, they are pretty cheap on the auction house, I've heard for most servers, you can get one for about 1k. For those who don't know what it is, the brawler's guild, it is basically fight club for WoW, lol. Except you fight NPC characters. I hear it is great and lots of fun watching and chatting with others while you wait your turn.

I can't wait to charge ahead to 90 and start doing more (again, lol)! On some medications for a small infection so I've been groggily, dragging his last level out, meh! Anyhow, leaving some neat pics in closing.

Phoenix Lord- Dire wants the mount so we've been doing Tempest Keep weekly.

Tempest Keep, final boss.

Just riding around outside the Magisters Terrace. I remember when this was the place to be for all your daily needs!

Dire and I. 

Drop us some uber loot!!
Pose for a pic now!

A neat debuff that made me and my mount red, lol.

My new transmog set, I LOVE the staff!

Running around in TSS raid instance, I don't like this one so much >.< I did get to fish up the second boss, that was funny! Dire looks to me and says, 'You're the fisher! Fish it up!" lol.


  1. Good stuff. Personally I think Burning Crusade had some of the best dungeon content. I've done a lot of the normal dungeons but someday I would like to go back and do the ones I missed. Maybe collect myself some classic gear!

    1. Yeah, there were a lot of really neat dungeons, tons of them. It is cool to go back and experience the content that I didn't get a chance to see back then, probably one of my favorite things to do these days, besides collecting mog gear, lol!
