gem and I recently beat Reaper of Souls! I know it’s been out for a long time now, but we stopped playing for a while.
When we started the game that evening, we were on a quest to find Malthael. It was pretty obvious that we were near the end of the game, but I didn’t realize just how close we were.
Honestly, it felt a little anticlimactic. I wish there were more mechanics to the final fight. Like a lot of Diablo III, it just seemed a bit too easy. Yes, I know you can make it more difficult, but really, we should struggle a little. Also, I think they should have drawn out Malthael longer. If they’re going to introduce a large, new story element – an angel turning against humanity – they should let that simmer for a while.
After killing Malthael, we decided to step into Adventure Mode finally. As we collected our bounties, we came across a Rainbow Goblin!
I knew what was coming, but Whimsydale came as a huge surprise to gem! I’m glad she got to experience it like that, because she seemed pretty excited.
Look how cute that map is!
By the end of the night, my Demon Hunter, Dara, was in the low fifties. I’m not sure what’s next, but I’ll probably be playing a bit more D3 now.
Recently I was playing my paladin, Illuminnae. She’s Illussia’s (gem’s warlock) sister of course! After finishing Eversong Woods, she headed south into the Ghostlands.
Finishing that zone unlocked Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms! However, I still had a little playing to do. The achievement always comes before the end of the zone for some reason. I understand they like to give wiggle room, but there’s no way I’m going to stop before the conclusion of a zone once I’m reaching the good stuff!
Traveling to the Undercity, I got to trigger Sylvanas’ Lament of the Highborne. It was pretty darn cool to see even if I have seen it previously. I can listen to it any time with Sylvanas’ Music Box, but it’s not every day that I get to see the event too!
For now, I’m done with Illuminnae as I move to my druid. I’m sure I’ll return to her in a bit though!
The last time I wrote about Sleepypaw, I had played through Elwynn Forest, Westfall, Redridge Mountains, and Duskwood on my Alliance pandaren monk. I figured it was time for a short update. Back in July I finished Northern Stranglethorn on him, and in August I completed the Cape of Stranglethorn. Being contested zones, they were largely the same as they were Horde side.
Because I was also doing dungeon runs with my friends on this character, Sleepypaw was 55 by the time I completed Stranglethorn with him. However, due to being busy on Friday nights quite often, the nights of our dungeon runs, I also got out-leveled. For these reasons, I’m retiring Sleepypaw for now. That’s not to say I won’t ever return to him, but my real goal for leveling alts was to see the zones I hadn’t seen previously. There’s little point in playing low level zones with a higher level character because I might as well reroll. When I choose to see the rest of the Alliance’s Eastern Kingdoms, I’ll be doing it with a new toon!
