While we were offline, events that affect us all took place. Our guild managed to get its first T14 ((That is not a typo, we’re not exactly pushign the envelope – or at least not THAT side of it.)) boss down, without Jasra’s healing touch. The question came up, did they want her back, or a DPS? I was told, get Flora moving.
So move I shall.
‘Undergeared’ is not exactly the most descriptive term I’d use. I still have several greens. ‘Undergeared’ doesn’t seem to be a strong enough term! Dutifully, I drafted a gear plan, and it was unsettling.
Part of the reason for this is the addition of several flavors of random-enchant epics for completing daily heroic scenarios; there is also a random-enchant quest reward from the Darkspear Rebellion. Both of those usually outstrip top-end T15 gear.
So, the Rebellion appears to be the place to be, but there’s a problem – the main quest is a weekly, so once you’ve gotten your 150 bits of various mats, and turned them in, all that’s left is additional collection. It’s rather daunting, the massive and tedious grind that the next few weeks seem to have in store. I’ve bitched about dailies, but this seems to be something designed to convince us that dailies aren’t really so bad, after all.
The other half of this is getting my rotation down; Demonology is just plain odd, with the Demonic Fury resource system. Still, I’ve done my homework, and I have something that’s at least passable, even if I have to look down at the keyboard from time to time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, thank the Light for WeakAuras and/or PowerAuras.
While Thunder Isle appears to be outgeared by the Rebellion, now, I still have some work there; the Green Fire quest is triggered by a book that drops over there, of all places, so I need to grind dailies there until I get that, at least.
It’s funny how much content is completely irrelevant, though. Sure, there are upgrades to be had from Shieldwall and Thunder Isle, but why waste time there when the biggest payoff is to be found in Northern Barrens? The irony of WoW is that 95% of its content is irrelevant to a raider.
Still, it’s fun to fly the Warlock flag once again. Even if I derp it like a noob.
