What a great week this has been in the World of Warcraft, at least for me it has been, just one of those weeks where things went rather well and the enjoyment level increased considerably. Sorry, I have no screenies from the Beta this week due to the fact that I am stuck in the area where you start building your Garrisons and have been unable to continue beyond that point due to not being able to complete the quests at the moment – bugs, glitches, whatever – oh yeah, my hunter pet keeps disappearing. I will admit that the first time that it happened, I was getting my backside handed to me by some newly minted monsters and it did not end well for poor Fnor. Feign death, yep, still continued to beat on him until he was dead – I think hunters are now kind of doing some sort of “self-healing” not sure or he has developed priest overtones.
Having a blast in the guilds where I have truly gotten friends and family involved once again – Haven is now a Level 17 guild and we are actually able to run dungeons to get the achievements together for the guild. SafeHaven welcomed back an old family member that has gotten his Druid to 90 and has been going crazy on the Timeless Isle getting gear. We’ve both decided our DKs are very squishy or we don’t really know what we’re doing – probably a combination of the two.
I know that I have a Beta invitation for WoD on one account that is strictly active and is just going bananas, however, I do have a second invitation that is on another account that has been lapsed for several years. It was an old starter account WoW2 that I had started and never could get the rest of the expansions to load to it – something was glitchy back then. Anyway, it has an invitation on it as well. However, even though it is not technically an active account – I can utilize the invitation on it. Weird.
Well, in order not to get in trouble with the “powers-to-be” at Blizzard I decided to put in a ticket to let them know about my WoW2 account. Ended up talking with a wonderful GM at Blizzard that told me that they couldn’t remove the account, however, they could make a new one – which I wasn’t sure I wanted to do, however, I can always use another account with my alts. Got the new account set-up and due to all of the trouble that I had had with WoW2 and the fact that I have a few accounts, the GM was very generous with me and gave me all of the expansions, including MoP, for “free” – wheee!! I like free. Not to mention I also got some free game-time out of it as well.
I still don’t have my cloak yet on any of my 90s, however, that is a work in progress that may or may not get completed by the time WoD drops. From the looks of things, it looks like most of the gear that I have been busting my behind to get will be kind of bleh when I get the character to WoD – quests are rough now, however, you start upgrading your gear immediately. It’s still fun trying and now I have someone that I can at least quest with or make the necessary runs. I hope to soon have more people at cap level so that we can start actually doing some current content and get the guild achievements as well.
Here we are at the Holiday Weekend, July 4th – Independence Day for those of us in the U.S., so it will be insanity in-game with all of the added folks. My intention in-game this weekend will be to run some old dungeons and gain some much needed rep on my beloved main. Who knows, I might even find something that I can do some transmogs with. Still doing the casual player, not driven by all of the things that I must have to reach the “end” and still having fun.
So, I will have to say that this has been a very enjoyable week and looking forward to having much more like it in the future.
I’ll probably post something else later today, have a few character ideas romping through my head, however, I don’t want to force the issue just yet this morning.
