So I missed canceling my Wildstar subscription by just barely a day, so I've basically got another month to continue trying it out to see what I think. If nothing else, it's new content to see and new stuff to do in the downtime while I wait for new Warcraft content. I've managed to get my Engineer to level 22. It's getting to be a pretty challenging slog at this point. I've just started into Whitevale. I was hoping to be level 23 before hoping over to Whitevale, but a few different bugged quests stood in my way.
I've also been working on a Dominion Spellslinger and have gotten him to level 12. I've been enjoying that class, because, while it doesn't have the tanking bot, it has a lot more range and hits a lot harder than the engineer. So stuff is getting dead before it even gets nearby. I'm doing Scientist on the Spellslinger and that has also been a lot of fun so far. I'm also giving Architect a try, because if I do decide to run someone all the way to end game, focusing on doing stuff with my housing plot seems like a good way to spend my end game time given my erratic play schedule.
On Rift, I started working through my mage a bit more. I was a little disappointed to see that one of the recent patches did away with the Warlock / Necromancer preset soul combination that I'd been using, although the Necromancer / Elemental combo that seems to have replaced it seems to be working pretty well also. I'm sure I could have looked up a custom build, but I'm going for casual easy mode here. This toon is almost to 58 and I think I'll finish getting them to 60 and maybe do a few Expert dungeons for gear before moving onto my Rogue / Hunter on the Defiant side.
In Warcraft, I'm still not finding much to do outside of gold-making, although that continues to go extremely well. I tend to be primarily a solo player (although I love my guild, I'm not available with enough consistency to be on a raid team or anything like that), so I remain concerned that diving too deep into the beta will only result in my getting burned out on WoD content even faster than I did this time around, particularly if Blizzard's content process continues to work the same as it has for the last 3 expansions. So I'm holding off on that and just letting the Joar army sit for now, other than regular auction house stuff. I may level another alliance toon or two before it's done, but that remains to be seen.
Staying out of the beta continues to be a personal challenge, and one that I may give in to before too long. Garrisons looks like a really interesting new feature, particularly for a casual player like me, so I'm really anxious to try it out. Carbine has done a fantastic job with the player housing concept in Wildstar, so I'm hoping Blizzard is taking notes at some of the cool things that have been done there.
