Reached My Healer Goal for the Pandaria Expansion

Back in early Wrath of the Lich King I did a lot of faction changing with some of my favorite Warcraft characters, all of them healers. Since then I have had a goal for every expansion: to level one of each heal class to top level on both factions. Mainly so that when the new expansion comes I can play whatever class I want on either faction without having to do a faction change. This is the third expansion I have this goal.

This time around I have been taking it slowly. Since I do not do much with my characters at top level these days, I have not had a reason to hurry up. And since we got a new heal class I have also had the fun experience of leveling two new healers from level 1, one on each side.

This week I reached the goal by dinging 90 on my alliance druid. And so my big healer goal is done for this expansion! Here is a picture with all my level 90 healers.

Hearthstone quest: Total Dominance – In Any Mode

Last night I got the quest Total Dominance in hearth stone. A quest to win 7 games. At first glance I thought this quest looked a bit annoying. Some days it takes a while to win 7 games in play or arena. I did notice the text “in any mode”, but thought that it couldn’t truly be any mode…must just be another to write play or arena mode.

Then I put it to the side and went ahead as planned. I did Plague Quarter normal in Naxx and followed that up with the two new class challenges. After that, when I looked on my quests again, it said 5/7 games won. I finished the quest by running through a few Naxx fights again, just for the fun of it.

After I had completed it I did a bit of googling. And from what I can gather it truly is any mode, even from challenging a friend. Really nice quest. Since I like to play with friends I wish we had quests more like quests like this one.

My Brief Summer Fling With Wildstar

All in all I like Wildstar. It has a nice combat system, the double jumps are awesome, all my characters look really cool and there’s that nice sort of “Firefly feeling” to it.

The quest system is one of the things I like the best. You get to use a comunicator to turn in quests and get followup quests while you are out and about. And if you have a hard time finding the things you are looking for, you can get an arrow to show you where to go and how far away it is. So questing has a nice flow to it.

WhereImGoingI also love the concept of paths. It’s something I hope to see in more games in the future. It gives an extra dimension to the character based on what you like to do as a player. The settler path was a clear choice for me. But I’ve also had fun exploring on one of my characters and killing stuff together with the hubby’s soldier.

Wildstar_CuriosityThere are some nice zones, interesting stories and cool creatures to experience. I really enjoyed helping out Elderoot in Everstar Grove…all up to the last part of the quest. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t done it, but it’s a sad panda moment.

ElderrootAnd there’s this huge nature-troll-ish mobs you encounter while questing in Celestion, I really liked them. Especially the part where you get to ride on the back of one of them.

TrollDudeGoodGoing02But even though I like the game and feel exited thinking back of my time spent playing it, I have not managed to get past level 10 on any of my characters; mainly because I get over stimulated by the game. There are just so many things happening all at once; flashing graphics and lots of sounds.

But if you don’t mind that part I think it’s a great leveling experience. And it’s fun to play both solo and with friends.

My Week in Gaming – 002: Winter in TERA and Warcraft PvP

On sunday we stumbled across the first winter zone in TERA, Westonia. Since I love winter zones in games I was really happy to see it. The area of the zone I so far enjoyed the most is called Tempest Reach and is more or less a dried up sea bed that has frozen over due to a surge of magic. There are old shipwrecks and weird sea creatures. Really neat.

ArenaTeam_02While in that zone we ended up in a few challenging fights. One of them got really intense, to the point where it reminded me of PvP. And it made me think, if I can manage this I’m probably in shape to do some PvP.

So the next day me and the hubby did some 2v2 arenas in Warcraft to see if that was the case. And even though my gear is out of date it went okey and we had a lot of fun on our priest + hunter combo. This gives me things to do in WoW once again. So the plan to have my account frozen has been scrapped!

Zazzy_GreviousWith the arena games going well I decided to give some focus to another PvP project that I have been putting off for a long time: getting parts of the Grievous set for Zazzy to use for a transmog.

Zazzy has not PvPed since mid-WotLK, so her PvP gear is really crappy. I started out with 485 iLvL and just 1,13% PvP power. But I decided to try anyway. So far is has gone really well. I’ve had a lot of luck with the teams I’ve ended up in. And now I have 3 out of the 4 pices I need for the transmog, after just two nights of Battle Grounds.

However, I think the best experience from having done BGs on Zazzy so far is that I have totally re-evaluated shamans in PvP. Even though I know they are good these days, many top healers in arena teams are shamans, I havent’ wanted to PvP on my shamans. Back in WotLK, when I did PvP on Zazzy, I didn’t really like it. They were so squishy compared to my other healers. But now, I was suprised at how long I managed to stay alive in my crappy gear. Not squishy at all.

Oh and another great Warcraft thing happened. My ally warlock finally dinged 69! You might think it is an odd level to be so excited about, but it really isn’t. I love Demonology. It’s been my favorite lock spec since vanilla. But these days Demo isn’t any fun until you get the Molten Core talent, which you get at lvl 69. Now the little lock is back to Demonology and can happily set the world on fire with her Soul Fire!
