I’m 72 now. We pretty much finished Howling Fjord (tho I’ve got a small area on the map that never got uncovered so I’m thinking we might have missed a quest hub… maybe it’s Alliance only? Must look into that) and are now working our way through Borean Tundra. I agree with almost everyone I’ve read on this matter, I like HF a lot more than BT. Although I haven’t had any quests in HF that I went “Damn that was cool!” but the tank thing in BT… that was a BLAST!!! I do, however, love the daily sea lion quest… sooooo cute!
I feel, like others, that there is a distinct lack of herb nodes. Maybe there’s just too much competition right now… maybe there really aren’t that many nodes… maybe I need to get to the higher level zones… I’m not sure what the issue is, but it’s making leveling Inscription a bit of a pain. We did the quests ins Coldarra last night and I was able to herb all the walking trees (the Hubby and I call them Ents… I know, we’re mixing mythologies, but that’s what they are!) I got a whole lot of new herbs that I can’t even pick yet, unfortunatley not enough of anything to Mill. Speaking of Inscription… I have horrible luck with discovering Minor Glyphs. I seem to be able to discover Every. Single. Worthless. Stupid. Glyph. Except for the worthless, stupid one that I want! I’m sick and tired of needing Light Feathers gosh darnit!! I’m actually using Levitate a lot these days with all of the elevation changes in the terrain and I’d really like to not take up bag space with feathers.
I’m a little tired of all the ganking… We’re getting better at defending ourselves so we’re not getting our asses handed to us quite so often, but it’s getting old. I understand that being on a RPPvP server there’s going to be a lot more “Red is Dead” mentality… but I’m a little tired of it. And before you flame me I did not choose this server, it’s where my friends play so it’s where I play, and I’m constantly advocating for a server transfer but no one’s taking me up on that one. We had one hunter last night who just wouldn’t give up. He must have had some kind of vendetta against the Hubby (or he was just really stupid) because he consistently ignored me and tried to kill the Hubby… understandably he was only sucessful if I wasn’t there. Pocket healer = I win button. Aparently we also have some kind of Guild war with an Alliance guild and we are Kill on Sight for them. Kinda sucks. At least they don’t camp.
My last thought is on gear. Since I didn’t raid at all with this toon, just about everything is an upgrade for me. However my bank is quickly filling with gear. So much has changed with the Priest mechanics I don’t really know how much I need for each stat. On top of that I’m not sure what spec I’ll be playing when I hit 80 so I’m having to keep EVERYTHING. The Cloth pieces are usually easy since there will always be alternatives but Trinkets can be hard to come by and each one is a little different. Since they’re all quest rewards I can’t ever go back and get them again. I’m probably stressing about this a little too much but I just don’t want to get to 80 and think “Why didn’t I keep [insert piece of gear here] I got way back when” I’m thinking about things like the Vengance of the Ildari. A lot of us wore that thing well into Kara and it’s a quest reward for a level 62 quest.
I think that’s all I’ve got for today. I think a lot of us bloggers are feeling the lack of anything insightful to say. All this content is so new and most of us are still trying to level. You guys will have to live with our “What I did today” posts for a little while 🙂
