See, see!  I said when I started this thing that I would eventually forget about it and stop updating, and that’s exactly what has happened.  I am so predictable.

So, lemme check here and see what I’ve missed on updating about.

Ok.  I’ve moved Korbox to the Alliance (Dwarf) and renamed him Tigard.  He’s 46 now.

Manzuri is 42.

Bildor is 34.

Spent about 3k moving Dalkado from 447 to 450 in Tailoring.  Stupid yellow recipes only gave me 1 skill-up on 5 combines, so I had to just bite the bullet and buy the mats to make two robes for 449 and 450.  The next day, a Merlin’s Robe pattern drops in ToC.  I wasn’t there, but apparently nobody else there could use it (!) so I’ve naturally put in a request for it, since I’ve had the mats to make it for a while now (bought them with the intent of having somebody else in the guild make it for me, but then he didn’t log in for like a week, during which time I reached 450).  I asked about it, was told to request it on the guild forums, so I did, and…that was 3 days ago and I’ve heard nothing back about it.  I kinda want to ask about it again, but I really don’t want to be a pain in the ass about it.  I can only imagine that this delay is due to some conversation among officers about it since bank requests usually get filled within a day or so, but again, that’s just speculation on my part because I don’t want to be a pest.

Innoruuk and Aaeru have pretty much been ignored over the last several months.  Innoruuk has fully decked himself out in PvP gear though (and I’m just now seeing that today’s patch has made lots of it old, great).  Aaeru is still wearing heirloom shoulders.

Korby, like always has been the focus.  I won a roll on a Battered Hilt within a week of 3.3 going live.Yeah, rolled Need 100.  How freaking cool is that?  Pretty much everything has been upgraded too, with some exceptions.  I’m still badly needing a new bracer, I’m kind of locked into my current gun because the range slot is poorly itemized for warriors, and trinkets are…well, they’re tricky to upgrade because of how they are.  I now find myself almost eternally spending money on gems and enchants for the new stuff, which has gone and left me feeling poor on a regular basis.  Stupid awesome ICC loot.

The dungeon finder has gotten me playing Manzuri and Bildor a lot lately.  After leveling 4 characters to 80 exclusively from questing, it’s kinda nice seeing these old dungeons that I just completely ignored, aside from getting shepherded through them by higher levels.  Even though Tigard is leading my lowers at 46, I feel like Manzuri will be my next 80, maybe just for the novelty aspect of getting to play a different role than my warrior, DK, paladin, and mage fill.  Also she’s a jewelcrafter, and freely cut gems whenever I want them is a nice bonus to look forward to.


Two weeks in one shot

I know, I’m like 2 weeks behind on keeping this updated.  In a nutshell, Korby and Innoruuk are both done with the Argent valient quests, having become a champion of every city.  Aaeru is 67, just learned basic flying on her thanks to today’s patch.  Did a handful of heroics on Innoruuk, replaced most of his greens with BoE blues that dropped.  Korby got a BoE Uld25 head, and legs from the new Trial of the Champion 5 man heroic.  Also built Jeeves today, but I think I’ll still carry around some Scrapbots because the 2 hour cooldown on Jeeves is kind of annoying.  Been diligently performing gylph research on Dalkado every day, so I have probably half or more of the minors.  I guess daily dungeons are something I’ll be doing again now, since I get two Triumphs from it.  I’m also 30 Conquests away from buying the chest piece, so that’s a goal as well for me.

Epic impatience

I think I’m going to go ahead and buy epic flight on Innoruuk tomorrow.  I have just under 7k total across my guys, so it’s definitely something I can afford to do.  This will let me get going on the Netherwing reputation quests, which I’ve kind of been itching to try out at level 80. I can only imagine that the mines are so much easier to move around in with an extra 10 levels under my belt.  I kinda hated going in there when I did it on Korby, because it just felt like such a chore to grind my way through all the mobs.

Epic flight is epic.

It is also flying.

So being 70 now, I feel so free from the shackles of constant exp’ing that it’s almost overwhelming. Suddenly I have more than just PvP dailies. There’s this whole Sunwell place to see and start questing in. I can start on the Netherwing quest. I have a sudden need for 5k gold and as such every bar of metal in my bank looks tempting to put up in the AH. Still need about 11k honor for my BP…or a sword…I need 2h sword skill. I can go on raids with my guild…I think, I may be a tad undergeared and unexperienced though. I feel torn in 5 different directions while not really having any direction in my game now.
