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 […]

Screenshots and Second Chances

It’s odd how much of a difference that faction change made in how I view this character.  She doesn’t feel like a “reskin” or a “retcon” – she feels completely new.  Maybe it’s the mohawk.

What’s that? Screenshots or it didn’t happen?

Either way though, I’m thrilled to have her at 80.  And very very glad that I had epic and winter flying before I transferred her (and kinda wishing I’d stocked her up with level 80 BoE items).  I did buy a few things, mostly to replace the awful level 70 stuff I am so tired of looking at, and crafted a few other things.  Tailoring is going to take me forever, but at least I can make mooncloth and such now!

I’ve not respecced yet, because I want to see how good/bad healing is with this hybrid smite build.  Mostly because I don’t have the cash to dual spec just yet, and that means more soloing.  Eventually she’ll be full Discipline.

Because Disc is Bullshit, amirite?

  1. Congratulations on 80! Your comment about the character feeling completely new after the reskin gives me hope — I’m currently planning to faction-change Lakena, my night elf hunter who has been feeling rather stale lately, into a male Tauren. (Lakena herself is being rerolled as a druid, which I hope will allow me to continue playing the existing character while making her feel new as well.)

  2. My wife found the same with her faction change as well. The character became something fresh and new for her and she’s loving it.

  3. Heroics!

    Of course, as I say this, I acknowledge that I am raiding for the rest of the week.

  4. @ItanyaBlade: Well, given that I”ll be raiding Thurs/Fri as well, we’ll see what happens. I also might be better doing a few level 70 instances on NORMAL first. Must remember that I need to pick up the quests for “normal” for every instance but Violet Hold and The Nexus too…

  5. I’m having exactly this experience with a draenei shaman I moved to troll. I loved playing her up in Burning Crusade, but she never seemed to quite have a place in my mental landscape in Lich King. Now she does, and I’m loving her newly unfolding story.

  7. Heroics with the kitteh! Who will also be a bear on your behalf, if needed.

    ‘Course, I raid with Pill… *ponders*

  9. How did you like the lolsmite build for leveling? Rheyna is just 75, and I’m torn with it. Some days I really like it (and it fits with her “I don’t disapprove of Shadow, but I’m just not good at it” schtick), and some days it just feels like a burden to play (although it’s still true to her RP, which is why I keep it).

  10. @Nahyomi – Actually, I liked lolsmite a lot better for leveling than I did shadow, at least by myself. I did end up putting 3 points in Spirit Tap, which helped IMMENSELY – so at 80 Anzefi is 41/27/3? But she does have to eat/drink pretty frequently. Usual rotation was bubble, pull with Holy Fire, SW:Pain, Smite 2-3 times, and then wand until dead.
