I cannot play mages. This is my first point. Maybe it's because I love warlocks too much, maybe it's because I don't appreciate the beauty that is magey stuffs, I don't know - but I'm not enjoying my mage at all. And I have tried, really I have. They go out of mana so fast it makes killing things painful. On my lock I just life tap and drain life and I rarely stop to drink. This is quite pleasant. It would help if the drinks I can create on my magelet topped up more than half my mana pool I'd be less grumpy about this - but they don't. And it is a fail. So goodbye magelet (again).
Point the second: I love my warlocks - gods how I love 'em. Sassi is actually getting some playtime at last and I've re-specced her to affliction - having historically levelled as either demon or destro. She's not high enough for afflic to be really imba yet - but she's such good fun to play I don't care. I'm not playing Ahine much - other then to herb when necessary, but that's ok - I just log into her sometimes so I can go "mmmmmm, love lovely warlocks with big destro crits" and log off again. I'm going to have issues in Cata - goblin locks sound sooooooo good - but them Himself has informed me that troll warlocks will also be playable as well. Himself, natch, is over the moon about this, having somewhat of a
Shamans - my server transferred shaman is getting no playtime at all. Which is a pity but when I play her, she's just pixels. So I decided that I'd make another one. And as I've never really played an orc, I figured that I'd do just that. Isn't she fab?
I'm going to have to do the poxy totem quests again though, which makes me sad... And question - she's currently got the BoA 'PvP' staff equipped, but I also have the 'PvE' one. Any advice on which is 'better'? And anyone who points out that shammys should have a mace and shield equipped - I know. But I don't have the BoA ones (if they even exist). Nor is there any way in hell that I'm going to sanity tap to get enough badges, emblems, whatever the hell they are now called to sort this, m'kay? And I realise she's wearing cloth shoulders. See previous argument. But she'll be elemental - because the thought of me playing a melee shaman is frankly laughable... I nearly pushed the boat waaaaaaay out and made an orc warrior - but then I shook myself hard and normal service resumed.
Props to Tobold and Miss M for making me laugh with their RL Reviews. And to Tam for being the fashion police - Azeroth style. This is just fabulous - even if you don't follow the instructions it works - but it's better if you do!! Saga's blog is a new one on my reading list and when I get round to updating my blog roll she's going on there for sure (oh, that's a plan for later actually) and OddCraft is another blog which me massive amounts of joy whenever I read it. Same with Psynister (ok, really am updating the blog roll soon). I always want new blogs to read - if you have something that you've stumbled across please drop me a line or a comment. And of course - this week wouldn't be complete (for me) without giving you my views and Sven's responses. Though his inability to
