Such a silly silly wow’er

World of Warcraft

My wow’ing has increased recently, and as I’m playing more I find that my memory is flawed in some aspects of the game, and an optimal approach is somewhat harder than it used to be. I’m becoming a silly wow’er. As a positive I am enjoying wow a lot again, just in time for the expansion.

For example:

I remembered too late that Normal mode dungeons can be run many times each day, as they do not have a 24 lockout. This means that I could run the Stonecore normal many times a day for the rare mount, rather than once as I was. Doh.

As running normal for mounts is easy I was also doing Heroic UP in Northrend for the Blue Protodrake that drops there too. Imagine my joy in finding that I did not change the difficult after running Stonecore on Normal, when the mount only drops in Heroic mode. Doh, back to the entrance I go. It did seem a little easy.

The weeks activity was not all silly though, as I’ve started alt’ing around again. This time I am concurrently leveling a Mage (51), Warlock (83), Shaman (46), Rogue (50), and Priest (80). My suss is that I can cycle through these characters using the rested experience boost and then switch toons. So far with so many characters I am always playing in rested. Its great.

The reason that I chose these classes is because all my other class characters are already 85. I do get slightly disinterested with some content when you have to play it three times. Often though doing the same content with three perspectives give me an idea for the differences in the class. The squishy factor of a Priest and Warlock are concerning when compared with how tough and mean all the plate wearing classes are (yup, all my plate wearers are max’ed out, not a surprise really).

During the leveling I can sometimes (if the family don’t need help) queue up for a instance and smash monsters in a team. The times when I do this with guildies I get a very quick reminder that I’m a scrub when it comes to playing multiple classes. However when I play in randoms I find that I smash the charts and perform well. That might mean my guildies are very powerful (true), and also might mean that even a total scrub who stays out of the fire is valuable.

It’s a nice reminder of the golden rule: you do zero dps when you’re dead. Happy killing, alt’ing, and noobing.

  1. I do like your idea of rotating levelling. I’ve got my Shaman, Mage, Rogue and Warlock I can rotate around.
    But lately I’ve been levelling and loving my Prot Warrior. The class plays so much more visceral then any other tank I’ve played (and I have played 85’s of the other classes). Being able to charge into the middle of multiple mobs, Thunder clap and Shockwave is just plain awesome and something I just never grow tired of. Every hit just feels solid 🙂

  2. I totally agree Ram, Warrior Tanks are Incredible!
    Until I played one I thought Pally Tanks were OP, but the flexibility and options that a Warrior Tank have without managing micro-resources is darn impressive. My Warrior Tank is 85 now, and I don’t play it much as I want to level the others, but I’d love to.
    Too many Tanks, not enough time.
