Nightfallen down…

and just, sigh.  Several more to go.


You know, the class hall armor was a good idea.  First it’s a copy of the Challenge Mode Gold stuff from MoP that I didn’t get because of multiple reasons previously discussed.  But mostly because I didn’t try hard enough.  It was also somewhat cheap gear.  The only problem of course, is that I outleveled most of it quickly or was beyond it before I even got access to the stuff.  Not sure why that was.  Gear is a little weird these days.  Back in Cata you’d get dungeon blues from the vendors and rep, maybe an epic here or there from the big rep grinds.  But you raided in blues and replaced that stuff with epics in your raids.

Then LFR happened with Dragon Soul and it was ok, get your LFR welfare epics while also doing normal or above raiding and skip the blue stuff altogether.  That was kind of sad.

Of course every expansion after that, you’d be wearing raid gear, new expansion happened, and you were replacing that junk with greens fairly quickly.  I think the only exception was Draenor where I think my previous stuff lasted a few levels first.

Oh well.  We did some raiding with Stormpike but now we’re  back to just AV.  Figures, since I dropped like 70k on a trinket to riad.


Making things better

I’ve noticed a few things that have been made better, quality of life type changes.  The quest where you have to boost the fighters around the Drowned Gardens, now lets you boost fighters that were already boosted by someone else.  Before if they had the buff from someone else, yours didn’t ‘count’.  That could get annoying, standing around an npc checking for the buff and when it was going to expire, 2 minutes at a time.

I finally got my first legendary, some 250+ world quests in.


They also included a 15 minute buff called Body and Soul (like the priest buff but longer) for the priest hall.  Now you can run around fast for much longer, yay!


Oh and I’ve been raiding with SPM (Stormpike Militia) and we’ve been doing quite well!  I enjoy raiding.  Apparently the team team in Time Lords all left to create a raiding guild.  I don’t understand why they had to leave to do that, but whatever.

We got the last boss to 7%, but it got late and we kept wiping. I’m sure we can start heroics soon enough though.

The druid quests have been rather epic, I love that big blue bear.  It’s uh, Ursoc, or something important!


Then this was Ashamane, after all the feral weapon is called that.


This game really is pretty, by the way.
