And the Mage Makes 11!

So I hit 110 on the mage earlier this week.  Leveling as fire ended up being quite a bit easier than I was expecting.  What it lacks over frost in control, it more than makes up for in sheer burstiness.  And adding a frost-based bodyguard brings back at least a little bit of those control features.

The class order hall campaign for the mage was a bit odd in that there was almost no content available while leveling.  Unlike most classes, where there is a series of things available around level 105 or 106, there was pretty much nothing after the original 101/102 stuff until hitting level 110.  I'm not entirely through it yet, but so far it's nothing out of the ordinary.

I'll be working on the warrior next (in fact already have him sitting at 103).  He's not going to make it to 110 before 7.2 drops, so he may end up getting paused for a bit while I work on Pathfinder Part 2 and on whatever is necessary to make progress on class mounts on 11 different toons, which sounds like it'll be a bit of a nightmare, since I need all 11 to get to Exalted with the new faction in order to get there.  I'm seriously hoping they change that little bit at some point in the future.

I also managed to get yet another legendary this week, this time on the druid.  This one dropped as loot off a random world rare kill, which is the first time that I've ever had that happen.  But hey!  I'll take it!  That brings me to having legendaries on 8 of my current 11 max level toons.

Also, next week is Spring Break, so there will be a break in the play time for vacation and holiday.

Cheers,

Joar

The Rogue Makes Level 110 #10

I hit level 110 on the rogue about two weeks ago.  He's getting close to being done with his class order hall campaign as well.  I'm still enjoying subtlety, at least for world quests and that kind of thing.  From a leveling speed time, the rogue ended up being pretty quick, coming in as the fourth fastest toon so far.

I also managed to get a legendary on this guy almost right away, as one dropped out of an emissary box on the "Do 20 world quests" part of the class order hall campaign.  That makes 7 of my 10 max level characters with legendaries at this point with the Druid, Demon Hunter and Shaman being the unlucky 3 without.

Once I get those last two classes leveled, I'll probably focus on doing world quests on those until they get one.

I'm now off working on the mage.  I'm leveling as fire for the first time ever, which has been relatively decent.  What it loses over frost in terms of control, it definitely makes up for in sheer burst damage.

After the mage, it'll be the warrior and then I'll be done with all the Horde classes.

Cheers,

Initial Thoughts on 7.3

So I've been trying to gather thoughts for this blog post for a while now because I wanted to get my initial thoughts down on patch 7.3....
