It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Monday Miscellany – Leveling? What’s that?
comment 6 Written by on November 17, 2008 – 9:22 am
  1. Annorah is 71 (and about half).
  2. Aelflaed is 71 (and about 1/4).
  3. Rirri is 58 and building up a full stack of rested XP.  Annalira is my little disenchant bot.
  4. Juggling two characters is a little odd – even though I have a very easy system for choosing.  Annorah is leveling with my husband’s pally, so if he’s online and wants to level, that’s where I go!  Otherwise, Aely gets to go run around the Fjords.
  5. I’ve respecced Annorah slightly, since one of the fun things about being in a group that you raid with is that there are 7 full time healers (at least!) trying to level.  So I’ve dumped about 25 points into Elemental, for some extra damage, and now I can run as DPS or healing – both with relative success, thanks mostly to my gear.
  6. Of the instances I’ve done so far, Ahn-kehat is by far my favorite.  Also seriously creepy.  The Nexus is cool, and Azjol-Nerub is appropriately spooky (Annorah does NOT like spidergunk on her hooves!).  Utgarde was almost disappointing, but I think I was expecting more Vrykul-awesome and less Undead-blargle.
  7. Having an accent for RP is a lot of fun… but can be a little weird if you have other characters without one.  Annorah very nearly slipped into a full Northron Apostrophe-killing Accent in Ahn-kehat the other day.
  8. The Deathknight quest in the Borean Tundra is really cool.
  9. I’m trying hard to remain spoiler-free for a lot of the upper level content.  Also trying hard to be supportive of all the friends I have that are trying to power through and be 80 by yesterday.  I suspect this will get more difficult when they start wanting to go places I’m too low level for.
  10. Speaking of accents, I need to work on Aely’s some – mostly to get to a consistent pattern for her speech. Hanging around with the other Northron folks in the Riders makes me want to do better!
  11. I am completely “arse over teakettle” (as Aely would put it) for the music in Northrend.  The use of folk instruments (or what sounds like folk instruments) and melodies is completely awesome.  I’m sad that some of it isn’t on the soundtrack.

  1. “Ahn-kehat is by far my favorite” – I have to agree. We ran it last night and it was insane. I havent had so much fun in a 5 man for such a long time. Azjol-Nerub is also cool, but I really hate spiders in RL so it was seriously a little rough for me to run.

  2. Heh…I did notice that Aely is slowly starting to pick up Philly’s accent patterns every now and then. He’s a little amused at that.

    I’ve been working on keeping him consistent in speech patterns…which, as I found out last night, can be very tricky if I pop on sudden-like and unprepared to play him. 🙂

    Sadly, the only two instances I’ve seen are Utgarde Keep and the Nexus, both on Destril. I’m not really sure what to think of either of them yet, as I didn’t really get to sit and think about what Des thought of either of them. Though he was less than amused about being unable to get out of Coldarra once he got in there…

  3. There’s too much to do! I’m loving my Death Knight, so he’s getting an unfair amount of time. After that comes Rand, but I haven’t done much in Northrend. Blizzard’s gotten me to stay up way too late almost every night since I bought the xpack… the game’s new again, and that’s very good.

  4. I am completely in love with the music in Northrend too. I haven’t been able to sit and listen to the soundtrack in it’s entirety, but I know I’ll love every minute of it. It was such a pleasant surprise when the music was so hauntingly beautiful as I went from zone to zone. I hadn’t expected much after BC. Great job on Wrath, Blizz.

  5. Oh yes is leveling beautiful again. After 2-3 rather painful levels fully resto-specced I switched back to enhancement.

    Resto healing was incredibily easy. Tidal waves makes it hard to even let an annoying dps die, those heals just pop out like nothing. I’m really looking forward to heal Hero instances and put my skills to again.
