I have been re-subbed to WoW for a month now so I thought I’d share my thoughts on how I’ve been liking it this time around! It took me a while to check out the Timeless Isle because honestly, new content kind of scares me. Most of the time I jump in there, everything kicks my butt and it turns out I need to do a dungeon or find a group or something. I did finally port over there though and I believe I’ve been doing dailies and killing rares for two weeks now. I know a lot of people really hate it, but I actually love it. Perhaps it’s because I’m so new, but I love how easy they made it to gear up if you’ve been away from the game for 6 months or so like me. I also love how solo-friendly it is! You don’t have to find a group or have friends to help you, you can just run around tagging rares getting sweet epics! I’ve gotten a few of the vanity pets, which are totally my thing. I just managed to reach 400 of them last week so I was sent Venus as a reward, who kind of creeps me out.
I also got the Huolon mount and then was like, wait, why can’t I ride it!? I figured out that I had to go talk to the Order of the Cloud Serpent people, which for some reason, I had just totally missed and didn’t know they existed. At first I was grumpy about it, grinding dailies for rep is not my favorite thing but it actually only took me a handful of days to get to exalted! Between a few Quivering Firestorm Eggs from my adventures on the Timeless Isle and the Grand Commendation of the Order of the Cloud Serpent which I purchased at revered, it really was a very quick process! I also got to tame the three baby cloud serpent battle pets when I reached exalted, which are pretty darn cute!
For some reason it took me three characters and almost two weeks to find one piece of timeless gear for my pally, the shoulders. I had two other alts in full timeless gear before I finally found some spaulders in a chest behind a tree. I had been collecting lots of those Burden of Eternity things though in the meantime so now I have almost upgraded all of my gear to ilvl 535. It’s pretty awesome how much butt I can kick now as a ret paladin. I haven’t felt like that in a long time because I basically skipped gearing her up in the last two expansions, which was obvious by getting the achievements [Epic], [Cataclysmically Epic], [Mystically Superior] and [Mystically Epic] all at the same time! There are now many rare elites on the Timeless Isle that I can face alone and killing 20 elite creatures a day is a cake walk. I have also started gearing up my warlock and priest, and even they don’t have a hard time killing the elites anymore. I’m just enjoying being tough again, gear was pretty unattainable to an anti-social player in the past.
I’ve still been working on the Austerity project, she’s level 27 after visiting all of the Candy Buckets of the Eastern Kingdoms and doing some of the Hallow’s End dailies. I had been purchasing some Unclaimed Black Market Containers too, but they seem to be selling for around 12,000 G now, which is a bit too steep for me, since last time I got some beautiful BoP level 60 mage boots for about 9,000 G. I don’t really have any gold making strategies anymore because I was away from the game for so long, so dropping 12k every couple days on potential garbage would burn through my coffers pretty quick. The only way I have been bringing in gold lately is with some much overdo guild bank cleansing, and most of that goes to Timeless Isle repair bills to be honest. I’m pretty bad at staying out of the AoEs…
Anyway I will continue to post as I continue to play! I’m not feeling like the un-sub will come anytime soon plus I would still like to get every class to 90!
Thanks for reading!
