I recently decided to try some other characters. First, I wanted to see the Worgen starting zone. I created a Worgen hunter named Eadgar, and I thoroughly enjoyed his starting experience. I especially loved the building pictured above. After finishing the starting zone, I created a Forsaken warlock. He’s currently level 7 or so; the Forsaken starting experience is definitely not as cool as the Worgen’s!
My Death Knight was in the very low 70s, so I decided to try him again. I did a couple dungeons, and then decided to try my hand at tanking. I was extremely nervous, but it went well. I told the group I was new to tanking, and that I really only heal. They told me I was going a little slower than normal but that I was doing fine. Great!
I also wanted to check how I could mage, so I swapped characters and computers with Moogle for two boss fights in Throne of Thunder. Amazingly, it went really well. I’m confident I can DPS in a raid setting.
Following that, I decided to get a shadow spec for my priest. I created the spec and a set of offspec gear based on what I already had. Sadly, I went into LFR to test it and I was already in the top three or four on DPS. I would expect to be worse than that, but I forgot that you can never underestimate LFR.
We didn’t have enough people for our second raid night, so we spent a little time talking about guild stuff before calling it. Our second raid night is changing from Wednesdays to Thursdays. That shouldn’t really make a difference to me, so I’m fine with it!
Because I don’t need anything from heroics anymore, I decided to make a shadow spec. Saving my action bars is easy with Action Bar Saver, and saving talent specs is also very easy with Talented. Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to save glyphs that I know. I guess it’s not that hard anyways; with the list of all known glyphs right there, I just have to remember to scroll through and pick applicable glyphs every time I respec. Still, sounds like something I could get wrong. I PVP’d a little in my new shadow spec (actually designed for PVE), but I didn’t get around to trying it out in a heroic. Maybe next week sometime!
Also, check it out! We got the Armadillo Pup! He’s a cute little guy, don’t you think? I like him.
