The WoW Ironman Challenge — Warlock Level 80
Ironsally hit 80 in Sholazar Basin and she put on her new clothes and celebrated by setting off the fireworks she received in the “Atta Girl!” care package you get on hitting 80. Yay! Woohooo! Ding! Yeah, that didn’t last long. Now she’s in a depressed funk but we’ll get to that. Oh and I love that care package, lots of potions she couldn’t use but whoever thought that up, well done, good job. I know some of my alts got to 80 just to set off those fireworks.
Nothing terribly exciting happened in the three levels to 80. Truth be told, Sally kinda goofed off a lot. Her obsession with rare spawns continued, here she is posing over a downed Aotona. I don’t know what she’s bragging about, as you can see she had a LOT of help.
She’s been doing a lot of zone jumping as she finds some of the higher level zones are easier for her than some of the quests in lower level zones. Sally is an impulsive adventurer, not much of a deep thinker so she hasn’t give much thought as to why this is so.
She’s had some technical difficulties that at the time didn’t seem much to worry over but now seem more troublesome. She was having a great time doing the Brunnhildar Village quests but has stalled at Cold Hearted as it’s bugged and you can’t mount the drakes. If she can’t go forward she is missing a lot of quests. I don’t know what kind of priority Blizzard gives to fixing old expansion quests but I hope it’s pretty high. She needs those quests. She can’t get back into Brunnhildar Village either as the disguise isn’t working so her new friends would kill her if she lands, geez. Come on guys.
She went to the Argent Tournament. No, she hasn’t done any quests yet in Icecrown she was just sightseeing and shopping. She was hoping for a “I survived Icecrown” tee shirt but didn’t find one. But that might be a little premature anyway as it remains to be seen if she will survive it.
After setting off her fireworks, she headed to Stormwind. She has learned her lesson and will stay in Northrend until she exhausts all the quests but she just HAD to go and kill just one Cata mob. Just one, she promised.
She flew to Mount Hyjal and went up to the first thing she saw, one of those Scalding Rock Elementals that hang around the Inn. No big deal, right. It was a boss fight. She survived, but the elemental didn’t die until she was under 5% health from trying to keep the void alive and she was out of mana. It was nigh on impossible. I told her to look on the bright side, she got an achievement out of it. In response to that all I got was a … rude gesture, she was not amused.
So Sally’s pretty depressed right now, poor girl. I’m not sure she could survive Cata even if she were already level 85. Her strategy now is to do every single quest available in Northrend and see how many levels she can add before leaving and see how it goes, but it doesn’t look good.
I had wanted to say “She-could-go…all…the…way! “ about now but I’m not feeling it.
Sheesh, she’s really having confidence issues, I’ll have to think of something to cheer her up.
