NEW Drake!!

Shame I can’t use it ๐Ÿ™‚

Ran heroic Occ on my pally and guess what I got out of my bag, what was even funnier was get was hubby got in his bag as well!!

Yup – Blue drakes!!

Mine has been placed in my bank next to the bronze drake I will one day learn if I can ever afford to get epic flight training!!

Shame my mage is still waiting for the damn thing to drop for her!

Since switching her alliance I have been trying to run some heroics on her, I just picked up my tier 9 chest piece and only 30 more badges to go and I can get the tier 9 helm to give me the 4 set bonus, ย that MAY be enough to boost my gearscore enough to tank some ICC/TOC runs….

Once again I am feeling the pressure as a tank – I get so frustrated that people in heroics do not spend ANY time waiting for the tank anymore, I realise most people are over geared for the content, but some of us are learning our feet. ย I hate it when I throw an aveger’s shield on mobs, then have not even laid consecrate and DPS are chowing on mob meat…I mean SERIOUSLY!!!! ย Avenger’s shield is like a bullet, grabs their attention and doesn’t do much else – and certainly doesn’t help on mobs where they are twoo far apart to be hit. ย Why is it such a hard thing to wait until the tank has at least HIT the fucking mob ebfore starting it. ย I have always and will always wait for the tank to get off consecrate or thunderclap or DnD or SOMETHING AOEish before going hell bent – there are very few times when I will hit a mob before the tank has.

I can see why people hate tanking and I can see why so many people just refuse to do it anymore, indeed one of our guild MT’s is deciding to call it quits for the xpac – hence I may be taking over that tanking spot. It is so easy to see why. ย I would hope that raiding is different, you can set the expectation of your raiders and PUG’s (maybe) so they give you three seconds alone time with the mobs…but wow…I have to work twice as hard as a tank….but I do enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes I switched her, I will likely move my warrior horde side and make her my first ever male character, although I am not entirely sure about that yet ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย  I might finish my hunter that is sitting on a US time server though – not sure yet ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway – here is the new girl, yes I went spacegoat again ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the tails ok!!?!?!

She is fully Prot now, and I am working on her tier 9 gear so I can start pugging the ICC stuff, I have 2 more of the badge pieces to try and get and to be honest if we have an alt run through ICC any time soon for the first four bosses I may see if I can snaffle her a shot ๐Ÿ˜€

I was tanking some normal runs yesterday – non heroic – to try and get back into the swing of it, made a few mistakes etc, but no one was taking aggro off me and a few of them were trying their damn hardest.ย  I really feel sorry for actual tanks (which may be me at Cata).ย  People just don’t get it ๐Ÿ˜€

It was fun to be on her again, I really enjoy tanking I have to admit.ย  I like it on my warrior as well, I just think AOE tanking is such less a hassle on the pally ๐Ÿ˜€ But I am pretty good with my warrior as well I think.ย  A little more practice and I may be good at it !!ย  LOL

Protadin to the rescue!!

So I have been recently running heroics on my pally, and that is probably an exaggeration, it has been about 2 weeks since I have actually logged in, but prior to this little break due to Real life, I had just started running as a tank ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I am basically trying to say, that I think I miss it!!ย  LOLย  I think I love tanking ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I can see why some people hate it, but I find it far less annoying than DPSing ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

I am tanking on my warrior and my pally and I cannot choose which I prefer to play as a tank, they are both uber to me.

I don’t want to play my mage at the moment, I get too depressed when I log onto her and see she has no tier 10 due to lack of raiding at the moment.ย  So I like being on my wariror/pally who are slowly building up badges for the tier 9 gear ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Will be abe to start PUGging ICC with them soon maybe ๐Ÿ™‚ heehhย 

Just thought you should know ๐Ÿ˜€

Alt time :)

My poor alts have been neglected until recently.ย  I have been playing them a fair bit which is so much fun. I can see why people like having altsย  ๐Ÿ™‚

My warrior has been running heroics as much as possible, I picked up 2 pieces of Tier gear with my triumphs and so am starting to get her better geared. I picked up the pieces that repalced current blues to ensure better overall upgrades.ย 

I am getting better at tanking and am offering to run them as much as possible as tank, I am still a little slow on picking up loose mobs, but i think some of that is that I can’t see the loose mobs when my FPS start to go ballistic, and being a tank I am right in the thick of it, on top of the fact I sometimes get lost in the button smashing ๐Ÿ™‚ hehย  But I am getting there, I need more stam and I need to get my gear enchanted….which I haven’t done.

I have also started levelling her mining again and her blacksmithing. Nowhere near finisihed yet, but at least I am making an effort ๐Ÿ˜€ย  She is let’s say – 50% through both of them.

My shammy is stagnating at 68 waiting for the hubby to get his pally to the same level so we can level through Northrend together.ย  So I have taken her back to the starting areas to level her skinning and herbalism, I am hoping to be at the northrend level so whilst levelling I can get all gathering done as well and make some money off it.ย  We shodul be getting started on them soon, which is cool.

My priest, is now level 30 and she is going to be an enchanter/JC, I have not started either of her professions, I should start now though so i can send her everything from my other toons as I go.ย  I am just running her through dungeons at the moment with the random thing and levelling that way when i get some time on her.ย  I actually chose skinning/herbalism for her then realised I had my shammy with those two professions, so I had to find others for her to do ๐Ÿ˜€

My druid is on hold now, until Cataclysm – I want a worgen druid and I am nto going to level the same class twice ๐Ÿ™‚ย  So she is just a place holder for the minute, I will be making her a LW – and not sure what else at this stage – maybe engineer ๐Ÿ˜€ย  So I might make her a guild bank of her own so I can start stocking stuff etc for all my levelling of professions.ย  No point selling all the lower level leathers, if my druid will use them later, so I just want to store them basically, same with all the gems etc

My pally hasn’t been logged into for aboutย  months, I am considering just transferring her over to the alliance side.ย  I like my Pally and I miss not being able to play her. I would like to get some healing experience on her. Then I will have all bases covered, healing/tanking and DPSing ๐Ÿ™‚ eheh

Talk about gearing up

So tongiht, late, ie just before shut down a few people wanted to drag my pally through TOC, who am I to complain, anyway hubby yells at me to jump online and off we go, after me complaining that I didn’t feel like it.

So normal mode we did it, and I scored 2 peices of gear, thought to myself, wow, nice one…then they decided that normal was so easy they woudl do it heroic….I laughed at them and told them they were nuts, anyhoo 30 minutes later I walked out with every single peice of loot that dropped in there.

Every single peice was plate DPS gear, with the exception of 2 peices which were mail DPS, for an enh shammy, but suits me until I get some plate in those slots.

So i am a little in shock that after 2 runs I am essentially geared up and only really need to fix my weapon/rings/trinkets/necklace and cloak.ย  Every other slot is epiced.

I have no money for gems/enchants so will be stealing some of hubby to cover the costs until I can get some dailies done.ย  I am glad I am only going to be raiding with these guys like once a month if they need an extra DPS. I don’t think I could handle the pressure of having to constantly fix my gear. I don’t want to play hordeside all that much, I love alliance and I love my HUMAN mage ๐Ÿ˜€ย  There is something about her I just don’t ever want to leave or change ๐Ÿ˜€

You have to love TOC!! Easy way for epix if you ask me! espeiclaly since there are still weapons and rings in there that I could use :d

Paladin info

At level 80, we require 263 hit rating, or 8%, to be hit capped on white swings, specials, and judgements.

1 STR gives you 2 AP baseline, multiplied by 1.15 from Divine Strength (Tier 1 Prot) giving us 2.3 AP per STR when specced

you need 214 expertise rating (26 expertise, 6.5%) to reach the cap

MY pally is now 80!

Yes yes, I spent all weekend levelling her due to guild dramas and went from 76 to 80!

She is mostly in greens at the moment, but will change with a few runs and some rep. I am very excited to have an alt, shame it is on theother faction ๐Ÿ˜€ย  However pretty exciting to be able to do some end game stuff with hubby!

levelling – kill me :D

So haven’t had much time to level my pally, indeed even play, but she is now almost 76 – I have about 20% of the level to go. Hubby helped me do some group quests last night after he got home.

So am pretty happy, she is getting close to the end now ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I respecced as well the other week when it was found I was missing 2 really important ret pally skills…have found killing mobs much easier now ๐Ÿ˜€ย  ehheh

Almost there

Pally is now 70% through levle 71……so tomorrow night she should hit 72!!

Have been just churning through quests ๐Ÿ˜€

Will post longer update later ๐Ÿ˜€
