Yes, I’m playing WoW, but I’m also playing catchup. Not just with my friend Semseye (and I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to him for complaining: It really isn’t your fault that you did stuff while I was busy being not online) but with most of my guild. Since patch 2.2 was released and emblems of conquest started dropping from everything I seem to have fallen behind somewhat on gear.
Fortunately for me, catching up is easier than ever before at this stage. A couple of weeks of running heroics, and I can conceivably have two tier-8 pieces and a couple of general emblem of conquest items! While I can understand some raiders’ frustrations, for me this is A Good Thing, as it seems like the Guild is still a few weeks off making proper attempts on Ulduar. And lets face it, the rest of the T8 and T9 gear is still unavailable to me so I don’t see the dedicated raider’s world collasing in upon them or anything.
So that’s my project for the next couple of weeks, and it’s not really that interesting. I have a proper hunterly project next in my list, though: I’ve finally levelled my tenacity pet – Draigan the Warp Stalker – up to 80 and once my gear is sorted it’s my intention to dual spec and experiment with pet tanking! More on this, including a plan of action (such as it is) nearer to the appropriate time.
