I have a tough decision to make. I will spare you most of the details but I acquired my shammy from a co-worker that was quitting the game. He was level 68 when I took over the account and I leveled him to 70. I know what your thinking...
Dr. Wang! That is cheating! Level your own shammy and stop being a noob
...I know, but if it makes you feel better I have a level 53 shammy on a pve sever. It was my first character on my first server way back in the days of 2004. Before I rerolled to a real server ..cough.. pvp server ..cough..
So Blizzard's rule is that you can't transfer a toon from a pve to a pvp server. So think what you will but that is the situation and I was pretty excited to get to play a shaman again. This all happened around March '08 and I been playing him ever since. I really only like the restro aspect of the shaman. I think the big chain heals and raid healing is alot more fun then my other healing toon, my pally. He is in all Kara/ZA healing gear and I really like the new talents, especially Riptide
On my original account, I have my Mage and my Pally. I don't know which of the three toons I would make my main and in a perfect world, would probably level them all at a similar pace. Thus, my dilemma, which to upgrade to WotLK first?!? Should just upgrade both of the accounts at the same time? I really don't want to spend the money up front so fast.
I guess I will just retired my shammy for awhile and get back into playing my mage. Which is very fun, don't get me wrong...its just sad.../sniffle
So this weekend I found a kara pug and ended up getting a freaking amazing item from the new boss. He drops the same thing everytime so you should know about it, the Arcanite Ripper.
First off it was a huge upgrade for my Ret set on my pally, which I was currently spec'd. The weapon I had was a noob blue polearm from regular Mech.
I think it had like 94 dps or something along those lines. The Arcanite Ripper has 120 dps and more crit, plus its PURPLE...I mean come on, everyone loves purple.
The coolest thing about it is that it has a special hidden ability to turn you into an Undead Rock star and the weapon turns into a Guitar. You get a buff called "Time to melt some faces" and you rock out with this guitar for 10 seconds. Its an amazingly fun item to have and I know I will always have it no matter how many upgrades I end up getting. I took like 15 screenshots at various points around the world......of warcraft and decided the above one was the best.
On to other news...I am also pretty upset about missing the invasion or the attacking of the scourge. I been around for a couple of similar previous events and they were super fun. I recall a time a couple years ago where a GM decided out of the blue, he was going to attack Org with this huge flying bug. He was just dropping everyone's hp to like 3% and moving the the next person until there was enough people to fight him...then he actually started killing everyone...we got him down though and it was a very fun experience. If I remember correctly, it was like 2-3am lol...completely random. Hopefully I will be around if they attack again. That is if the servers decided they will cooperate.
Today, I received a message from Gamestop stating to come join them for the midnight release of the WotLK. They told me to dress up as my favorite character and I am pretty upset that I can't make it to the midnight sale. Unfortunately, I work from Midnight til 8am...so weaksauce to that. I think it would be hilarious to see all of the wowheads dressed up and even though it would be completely and utterly dorky....that doesn't mean it wouldn't be fun lol.
I have to say I completely agree with our friends at wowinsider.com. Here is what they had to say -
Lets all say a silence prayer that the servers will not do what they did today (offline all day) when WotLK goes live. We kinda want to play the expansion when it comes out
Amen to that brother - wtfspaghetti is behind ya /pray
