The WoW Ironman Challenge — Warlock Level 45
Ironsally had planned on posing for you in her new embroidered armor when she hit 45 but after the time she had getting there all she wanted to do was sit down in beautiful downtown Gadgetzan and eat a horse … or a whole pig dammit. At level 43 she was questing in Thousand Needles. She was given a choice to Free Freewind Post or go to Tanaris so wanting a change of scenery she chose Tanaris. Oops, that may have been a little premature.
The mobs were one to two levels above her and strangely not any harder to kill but oh the misses sure hurt. She frequently had three misses in a row on a level 45 which made her so low on mana that if she got an add she was in big trouble. Being a cocky Warlock she decided to stay and see how it went. She died three times trying to take down Captain Dreadbeard but other than that hasn’t had much trouble.
All she could think about was the new armor available at 45, her last set of store-bought whites. She also upgraded her wand from the Pitchwood Wand to the Blackbone Wand for a tiny dps increase but since the next possible wand upgrade isn’t until level 70 she wanted all the power she could get. There are no gray wands so the level 70 will be her last upgrade.
Her clothing situation is my big concern. If you look up gray cloth drops there are plenty of options all the way to level 82 but they have to drop for you. She hasn’t been very lucky with cloth drops and people don’t sell them very often, especially at the higher levels. In hindsight I see it that it would have been helpful to start her on Fenris. Every time I get a gray cloth drop with a character I go, Yes! … oh no wrong server.
Ironsally actually uses bandages. All my characters trained first aid but none of them ever really used bandages with the exception of the Rogue. Ironsally really loves bandages. When jumped by more than one mob and she’s low on health from Health Funneling her Voidwalker she can regain her health with a bandage while he fights the bad guys. It’s interesting that playing this way is so different than playing a regular Warlock. It’s certainly simplified, only a few spells are practical to use and it’s a dangerous land, she has to pay attention to her surroundings. None of those spoiled heirloom-wearing, talent-pointed, characters on Fenris do, pssht.
I had been checking the AH for gray clothing around her level but I think I will start looking at all levels and buy something if I see it. I just bought her a level 77 Frost-Rimed Cloth Hat how’s that for optimism!
