The Big, Big Whoa-My-God Big Post

Wrain-Beach

I’ve been gone for a long time, so to make up for it here’s one of those “holy crap this is too way freaking long why don’t you have a life” posts. I’ve been leveling alts, obviously, and one is my level 16 feral-specced night elf druid Wrain (I’ll be referring to my alts by their current level, not necessarily the one shown in the included picture). He’s seen above in cat-form along Darkshore’s coastline, slaying water elementals.

Budm-Drink

Next we check in on Budman, my level 25 frost-specced human mage.  Budman’s working his way through the Wetlands right now but it’s been slow going.

Budm-Rapt

Here, his water elemental tries to engulf a raptor. Budman isn’t real tough, and his elemental is even softer so I have to be careful with these two.

Crane-Shore

Here we see my level 31 demonology-specced human warlock and his Fel Guard minion Okiash… Okinasa… Okisaki… Oki-SOMETHING. Whatever, I just call him Oki. Crane and Oki are lethal while running through the (admittedly lower-level ) Northern Stranglethorn.  They got here at level 29 and are just cruising.

Crane-Pet

Hey, here’s a pic of Crane’s new buddy, a lashtail hatchling. This little guy followed me around as I killed Basilisks for him to feast upon. I was only too happy to kill critters for his consumption.

Crane-Cave

I eventually drug Buddy (I named the little red raptor Buddy) into a cave to kill… someone. Or four someones. In any event, everyone I saw died and I completed the quest. Yay!

Lug-HolyHell

What the HELL?! I was taking Lug, my level 33 beast mastery-specced Tauren hunter from Mulgore to Desolace and I came across a FRICKING RABBIT WITH A GOD DAMN AXE IN HIS EFFING MOUTH! I repeat, for emphasis: WHAT THE HELL?!

Lug_Satyr

Once I dropped down into Desolace, I was smack-dab in the middle of Satyr Central. I had only one tip here (a quest I got from the Warlord’s Post or whatever that signboard in Thunder Bluff was called) so I just knew I had to keep walking and killing while following an arrow on my map. Yay for immersion!

Lug-BB

I was eventually sent with Pig (yay for Pig!) to a huge fortress to kill baddies. We went in, killed left and right, and then pig had some kind of Fel fit.

Lug-PurplePig

Yeah, Pig! You go! You go with your… giant… black… two-legged… purple winged… self… OK, seriously –WTF?? Getting splattered enough times with these punks blood upon killing them turned both Pig and I into freakish demon-things. It didn’t seem to bother us, so we kept on killing.

That’s all for now. I’m doing my alt-leveling now because they’ll likely go on the back-burner again on Tuesday as Gav grinds to 85. We’ll see.

Klug and Krayne hit the PTR

401_Klug

Here’s ‘Klug,’ Lug’s PTR alter-ego. I found that I love the new Focus mechanic over mana for Lug. I also picked him up a decent bow to replace his gun now that weapon skills are gone, meaning that I didn’t have to train Lug’s bow skill. Pig was in rare form and we killed random mobs even easier then we do on live, but Stridy was MIA. I had a button that said, ‘Call Stridy,’ but it didn’t work. Stridy’s button under the new ‘Summon Pet’ button didn’t work. I’ll have to submit a ticket on that.

401_KrayneDG

Here’s ‘Krayne,’ Crane’s doppelganger.  He trained up as a demonology warlock and promptly got a Doomguard. Wow. Kirashak is powerful, and the new tricks (like the new soul stone/soul burn mechanic) were cool, but what amazed me was my ability to nearly ignore my mana bar.  Normally Crane has to watch his mana bar closely because I’m almost always short but here I just cast away with impunity.

To this point, I really like the patch’s changes, and I can’t find serious a fault so far.

Leveling Crane for Kicks

CraneMoon

I was leveling my warlock, Crane yesterday in the Wetlands. He gained two levels (from 24 to 26) and I had a good time. One interesting event happened while Crane was still level 25 in the Excavation Site. He had his voidwalker, Kragnos tanking a raptor when he was set upon by Sarltooth. Now, as I wrote, he was level 25, and Sarltooth is level 29. I figured I was dead, but I managed to Fear him over and over again while helping Kragnos down his quarry. Once he did, we finally turned our full attention on Sarltooth.

We killed him and I lived! Yay! It was a productive evening.

Sights Seen: When Voidwalkers Attack

VoidwalkersGoneBad My main warlock, a human named Crane, is one of the inspirations for Sibyl in my webcomic, Gavelier’s World of Warcraft (the other being the notoriously anti-WoW Betasim). However, it seems that after dinging level 20 in Lakeshire, Crane’s voidwalker, Kragnos, has had enough, and engulfed Crane’s cranium.

So, what have we learned? Number one: don’t overwork your Voidwalker just for to earn a level. Number two: have his cast button on hotbar so you can dispel him when you inevitably do overwork him for that level.
