Dangerous Vacations and WoW Goals
Maintenance day and I was caught up with work so I thought I’d pay a visit to my Bounty Hunter. It’s been a while, and I know I should have taken the time to re-familiarize myself with my skills and keybindings but I thought, hey she’s a badass Bounty Hunter, I can just faceroll, she’s still in Tatoonie, what could hurt her here?
Well, there’s your answer. As it turns out just about anything. That Mako, never around when you need her. It’s obvious now that if I’m going to take extended vacations a little study is in order before she returns to combat. So instead I decided to visit Skyrim. That didn’t work out much better. I keep drawing my weapon by mistake and I accidently attacked my host’s wife, which he took exception to and the two of them killed me. I’m just glad I have a save before that event so they’ll never know what happened because it’s embarrassing … and frankly really rude. And I thought I took a screen shot for you too, but it turns out I don’t know the right key for that either.
What now? I definitely wasn’t going to clean. I know, I’ll take stock of my WoW goals. I’m really all over the place. First, Ferricat, my Ironman. I sorta wish she’d die so we could get on with it. This being careful sucks. Yesterday, and I really can’t believe I forgot this, I ran into an area with her and there was someone coming out. I know not to go into an area of mobs where someone else has been questing. Respawns. Luckily she got out unscathed but sometimes I wonder if I’m trying to get her killed.
I felt a little bad about it so when we got to Stonetalon Mountain and all the quests were ones I hadn’t done before I decided to leave for Stranglethorn and give her a fighting chance as I already know those quests. She’s level 30 now, and I bought her some jewelry to kind of make up for the whole almost getting her killed thing. She found one more rare, Two Toes, she’s no Ironsteve but she’ll keep looking.
In my last post I might have mentioned that I’m awful at magery. In a comment Effraeti said she’d had trouble with the class too, but was having a whole lot of fun with her Mage that she specced fire. Well, when I first got WoW I wanted to be an Orc but since my son-in-law was Alliance that was not to be. So, yeah … Orc soon to be specced fire. Maybe the 27th time’s the charm! Little Brujaha is a young level four so I can’t wait to get to 10 and pick her spec! I could have respecced an existing Mage but I thought maybe starting over would bring me luck.
I did a quick count to see if I might want to commit to Amateur Azerothian’s 2012 but at that point in time (it changes hourly) I was only at 1007 and when my Druid and Forsaken saw what I was doing they yelled, hey what about us! My main and my Forsaken Warlock are a little put out by all this, mostly my Forsaken; she’s embarrassed to be taking so long to get to 85. I promised we’d login and look for her leveling buddy.
My main is fairly patient. She wasn’t always but now she takes the long view. Right now she’s fairly happy to keep digging for that elusive Crawling Claw, getting United Nations for her guild, only ten more to go … oh and taking long romantic walks on the beach with any Stormwind Guard she can persuade to leave their post.
