I had a little incident with my computer... in short, my operating system seems to have been corrupted, and it's now in the shop. So, no new pictures (cause the laptop takes lousy screenies), but at least I've got a post, right? And as for the desktop, well, it needs a full reload of the system. The guy working on it is going to try and save what he can from the hard drive, but it's entirely possible that I've lost everything on it. Cue the qq'ing.
In-game updates! Leveling is going a bit slow, because you know, laptop, but I've gotten Taurros to 86 already. Poor guy was the last to get leveled for the last 2 expansions (Wrath and Cata) so I'm trying to get him done first Horde-side. The quests are pretty much what I expected from the Horde, but it's tolerable enough for my peace-loving self. I'm not sure whether I'm going to try and gear Taurros up somewhat once he caps, or get straight to leveling Booggah, but I've got a while yet to decide.
Alliance-side has been fun. Pitch is going first, and he's at 87 now. Questing is difficult with the laptop's lag, and dungeons are a complete lagfest that make me want to pull my hair out, but he is getting there! His mining is maxed already, and enchanting is around 575 or so. I really love the way Blizzard is doing profession-leveling this time around. He's started his farm, too, so we'll see how that goes.
Lark got some time in duoing with Pitch before my desktop went on the fritz. She'll be next after Pitch, with Rheugan getting some time here and there in-between. Once Lark is capped I'll be finishing Rheu up, then likely Davoss will be next. Leveling order subject to change, of course...
I've been working on everyone's professions as much as I can- partly my reason for starting Rheu out early, so he can gather herbs for alchemy/inscription. I'm not sure yet how soon I'll be getting Alanon and Barraccus (who is still 83 anyway) out to Pandaria, but this way they can still work on their proffs.
No new tames for my hunters since my last post, although I'm reminding myself I need to go tame a grown-up Ishnu before Lark runs out of room. She has spots, though, and only 1-2 more pets I want, so it shouldn't be a problem. Boo on the other hand has attachments for even the pets he doesn't use much, so making room for him will be difficult. Darn pet-hoarder. XD
Speaking of pets, the pet battles have been fun.. and fairly relaxing, since that's something I can do even with the lag. Yay turn-based battles? I've picked out several favorites that will be leveled as my "team", and I'm trying to capture one of everything I can find to fill out my pet journal. I've been really lucky with finding rares, too, and most of my main battle pets are going to be blue-quality ones.
Monks! Pitchmonk just hit 19 earlier, I was trying to get him to 20 and his mount, but I ran out of steam. He'll get it tomorrow, no worries. I've rolled a Pandaren shaman on Feathermoon, too, and a Panda monk on Wyrmrest Accord that will be going Horde. Haven't played them much yet cause I'm kinda waiting to get the desktop back (laptop has no sound, so cutscenes are just meh right now). Pitch is the only one I'm really worried about leveling, so no big deal there.
And I think that sums it all up so far. I'll probably think of something else later, but that'll give me an excuse for another post! So, til next time Happy Hunting!
