OK, I'm Done!!

Hi,

Special Wednesday edition.

I was having fun getting my appetite back for the game and making great progress on leveling. I got Mentalbrit to level 100 and got Battybrit to 98 and Beastybrit to level 58.

Then the patch dropped. 7.3.5.

The leveling changes are horrible. I played Beastybrit to 58 and it was so monotonous. It took about twice as long to kill each mob, and I needed to use Heal Pet over and over.

Then I played Battybrit in Spires of Arak. It was even more horrible. It took about 3 times as long to kill each mob and heal pet, heal pet, heal pet.

So, the changes didn't make it more challenging, interesting, or anything. They just made it more boring, monotonous and more of a pain.

I used to have fun leveling. It was my favorite part of the game. Oh well. I'm done for now.

Back to Guild Wars 2 I go.

Cheers.

DMF!!

Hi,

The major thing this week was getting all my characters through DMF. Phew! I do the profession quests and if the character has 700 fishing, the fishing quest too. I just managed to get them all through before Saturday.

Mentalbrit, Battybrit, and Flebrit all continued to do their garrisons for their professions. Felbrit has a level 1 mine to keep stocked with Ore for Engineering, but Mental and Batty are just using GRs to buy stuff they need to level Enchanting and Leatherworking. All of them have done the Pinchwhislte Gearworks quest chain in Spires of Arak, and are moving slowly towards level 100. Note that I'm totally ignoring all rares and bonus objectives. Just doing quests and the occasional cooking and fishing dailies in Stormwind City.

Beastybrit got to level 51 doing DMF, but she hasn't gone to Kalimdor yet. Maybe soon.

Slowly, slowly!!

Hi,

Sooo slow. I got Beastybrit to 50, Battybrit to 97, and Mentalbrit and Felbrit both to 98. That's about it. It was so nice not having to bother getting all the followers for each zone. Mentalbrit and Felbrit have done Talador up to the battle with Blackhand. I always enjoy that scenario. It seems to have changed though. You have to avoid all 4 of Blackhand abilities that smash the things to hide behind. It used to finish after just one IIRC.

So, again. Not much WoW this week. I actually started playing a bit of GW2 this week :) And of course, there was Hearthstone and Civ6 to keep me busy. Oh, and writing my Golf Simulator for the iPhone.

Happy New Year!!

Hi,

Happy New Year!! May 2018 be happy and prosperous for all of you out there!

In WoW news, I've got bogged down in Draenor. I don't know what it is, but I'm had a hard time motivating myself to play Gorgrond and get the characters into Talador and Spires of Arak. It's going really slowly. 

I have got Felbrit's Engineering and Mining on the move though, and she is mining in the garrison to raise her mining skill.

Felbrit working in the mine

It's crazy that she is level 95 already, and hasn't even touched Gorgrond yet. Mentalbrit has finished Gorgrond and is level 96. Battybrit has done some Gorgrond and is level 95.

The other thing I did was get Beastybrit to level 47 in Western Plaguelands. She's ahead of the leveling curve now. I usually get to the Badlands at level 46.

So, that's about it. Not much WoW this week.

Happy Christmas!!

Hi,

Well, I got a bit of a break between opening presents and going to friends for Christmas Dinner/Lunch to update my blog. The Kahlua coffees and Mimosas to go along with the Bacon Butties were great.

So, Happy Christmas (and Merry Christmas) to you all.

I guess the news for this week is that I've stopped playing my level 110s to bring in the gold. It was getting very boring doing World Quest after World Quest and taking away time from leveling.

My leveling has slowed down somewhat too. I'm not playing as much, but continuing to play a bit to move the characters along. All three of my leveling characters completed Shadowmoon Valley and are ready for Gorgrond. Felbrit and Mentalbrit made it to 94, but Battybrit's just a bit behind at level 93. They're all going to do minimal Garrison stuff. Just got them to level 2, and only build the profession building to level their professions. Just save all the gold for later.

I also leveled Beastybrit to level 40 and got her faster riding. She's well ahead of the curve, having only just started Eastern Plaguelands.

That's about it. Leveling. leveling and more leveling. No interest in high level content, and bring on the next Expansion.

Into Draenor!!

Hi,

Hello all. I got my three leveling characters all through Pandaria this week. Gosh it's so easy to get through these days. I just did the Jade Forest quests up to getting to Dawn's Blossom. Then only doing the Jade related quests and getting to Valley of the Four Winds. Just getting to Halfhill and doing the fishing quest and the initial farm quests and my characters were already level 99. It was then a simple task to so getting into Kun-Lai, getting the base set up and Temple of the White Tiger to get to level 90.

Now, Battybrit and Mentalbrit have done the Draenor intro, and have got to their garrisons in Draenor set up.

Mentalbrit at her Garrison
Felbrit has not made it to Draenor yet. She's sort of twinking at level 90 right now. She's got to level Engineering, and it requires quite a bit of Windwool Cloth. But instead of just getting that by running dungeons or something on my level 110, I decided to get it from the Sunsong Ranch. She's done the Tillers dailies to get to Revered, has 8 plots set up, and is now starting to get the wind wool cloth. Once she has Engineering to about 580, she'll hit Draenor.

For Battybrit and Mentalbrit, I'm looking forward to getting their professions leveled in Draenor through their garrisons.

Crazybrit got a level 1000 legendary neck, but already has 2 legendaries. So, she's just getting more waking essence to upgrade her waist to 1000. Better than having to get another waist piece, and equip the neck piece. She did get a couple of other upgrades this week getting to 903.

Oh, I nearly forgot. I resumed leveling another character this week. Beastybrit on Garrosh. The overall goal now is to get all my Hunters and Warlocks to level 110. Beastybrit did some Stranglehorn Vale and got to level 36.

Crazybrit is up to 108K gold this week, and Draenybrit got to 397K. Ticking along nicely from Champion missions and Emissary quest chests.

Done with Uldum!!

Hi,

Yes, my 3 leveling characters all made it through Uldum this week, and got to level 85. It was so much fun. But they hardly had to do much of Uldum at all. They breezed through it and Felbrit was the one who stayed longest there, to level up Engineering. It's still a great place to fly around the edges and collect Elementium Ore. She got her Engineering to 500, no problem. Here's the day that they made it to 85.

Cooking daily after making it to 85
Of course, they continued to do the Cooking and Fishing dailies all the time too. Mentalbrit and Felbrit even made it into Pandaria, getting to level 86 in the Jade Forest. Battybrit hasn't gone there yet.

I must admit that my play was limited this week because of the release of Kobolds and Catacombs in Hearthstone. I played that rather a lot this week.

Another thing I got done this week was to get every single character through the DMF profession dailies. Some of them even leveled up too.

Oh, and Crazybrit and Draenybrit both got 50 Wakening Essence (just from daily emissary chests). So they both got to upgrade a Legendary to 1000. That's two at 1000 for Draenybrit now, and one for Crazybrit.

I actually leveled Huntingbrit on Ghostlands a bit this week too, getting her to 105.

Crazybrit and Draenybrit continued to bring in the gold to make that keep ticking over. Crazybrit has over 80K now, and Draenybrit has over 380K.
