Annie Mae shoots a tin beer* can off a fencepost…. DING 60!
And after a very successful run into BWL with the nostalgia raiding group last night, in which they practically rolled her in loot, she’s looking very stylish in her… uh… hot pink boots. She’s already complaining.
Either way though, I’m going to finish out the Plaguelands before I send her to Outland, because I can still get XP from the Argent Dawn quests, and because it’s kinda fun to facesmash my way through there so successfully.
Being a prot warrior might be good for tanking? But it’s also definitely good for leveling, as long as you can handle keeping up with gear upgrades. I’ve found leveling a ret paladin requires a really good weapon upgrade every 5-10 levels, but leveling a prot warrior is more about the entire kit as a whole. Sure she dragged along with her Aegis of the Scarlet Commander until she got her Draconian Deflector last night on the BWL attunement run, but overall I’ve kept her gear pretty current, and it’s been awesome.
She doesn’t always work FAST (though Sword and Board helps with that quite a bit), but she’s pretty much indestructible if I don’t pull more than 3 mobs at a time. And, well, I’m having fun. Which is what counts, in a game, right? I’m not planning on being a tank; in fact, I’ve not yet actually tanked anything.
About the only thing I’m not happy with is the state of her professions. I know I’ll kick myself if I go to Outland and can’t mine Fel Iron (especially since it’s kind of everywhere), so I’ll be spending some time grinding my mining skill up past the evil, awful, dreaded, horrible “small thorium vein” stage before I crank back into full leveling mode.
It can’t last that long, right?
