My priest’s gear pretty much rocks. She’s gotten to the point where there are few easily attainable upgrades for her (for either her shadow or healing set), given the content the guild is running, though I do need to finish up that Sons of Hodir rep grind soon. Her enchanting is maxed, her tailoring is just a few points away… wow, it’s sort of amazing. I’ve never been in this situation with a WoW character before. It’s sort of fun! I feel more free to follow my nose. I even step aside for others in heroics if they could use the gear, because I really don’t need badges. I’ve brewed up some very low level alts, in part because I’d like to bask in this for a little while longer.
Our guild continues to make good progress in Naxx, too. We had some troubles with Sapphiron last week, largely due to the healing, I suspect. I was on DPS and in studying the WWS stats after, it seemed we didn’t quite have the party healing to overcome the frost aura damage, at least compared to the week when we did down him. At any rate, another run begins tonight. We’ll clear three wings and then return Sunday to finish everything off.
Yes… I went through with it. I’m enjoying a 21 day free trial of EVE Online, finally caving in after all the great articles and podcasts I’ve encountered recently from the Ancient Gaming Noob, Van Hemlock, and assorted SUWT folks. The game is complicated as hell but the tutorials are helping me get my footing. I confess it is sort of fun to be clueless and have a lot to learn, once again.
Beyond that, my writing work is keeping my busy as a little bee.
