The last couple of weeks have been lazy summer holidays for me. During this time I probably should have been PUGing ICC 25 and 10s on Lathere and making sure I logged in to complete the daily heroic each day. I instead decided to be a bad little tree and not worry about my Emblems of Frost and did what I felt like doing: unwinding with some solo game play and leveling.
I finally leveled my Mage to 80. I paid to move her over from Horde to Alliance at level 70 the day faction transfers came out. And yet since then I’ve given her very little of my attention. So I’m happy that I reached max level.
And now Cass and I have started a pew pew Gnome duo. Cass is playing a little Mage and seeing I already had a Mage and a Priest figured I better give a Warlock a go. Plus this way I get even more use out of my cloth and spellpower heirloom items!
Pixii and Caesandra were born, or as Cass and I refer to them, ”The Littlies”. Our littlies aren’t being powered leveled or boosted, we’ve instead been slowly questing about the place whenever we were both bored and had some spare time to play. We’ve had a few hair-raising adventures, one particular standout memory involved me learning when Fear is not a good option, and I couldn’t forget the multiple arguments over whether I was to blame for putting Corruption on that mob before Cass marked it for sheeping or after (I promise you it was always before!).
And when our little Gnomes reached their 20s we decided to take the plunge into the world of PUG dungeons.
Pixii and Caesandra’s Tank Tour Of The Bloodlust Battlegroup
Because we normally queue with a couple of friends who have DPS toons around the same level, we’re having great fun meeting the young, upcoming tanks of Bloodlust and, dare I say, the future of tanking.
Overall I have to say I’m quite impressed. Let’s just forget about the Warrior who need rolled and then wore a cloak with intellect, or the tank who thought it was quite ok to pull half of SM – Graveyard in one pull. I believe these guys have been the exceptions.
Worst Thing I’ve Discovered
The one part of the new dungeon finder that I’m a bit sad about is that if you find a good group and you want to all stay together and farm instances, requeuing as a group never seems to work. I’m not sure if this is Blizzards way of ensuring the “good” players aren’t being hogged or if it’s something to do with being on different servers. Whatever it is, it’s quite sucky.
Best New Discovery
An item that inspired the title of this article. Its also the reason I have now decided Gnomeregan isn’t half bad. I remembered Gnomeregan being long, painful and a waste of time. Not only does this dungeon seem fairly easy now, I’ve discovered that the final boss drops what has to be the best item I have ever won since I started playing World of Warcraft.
Pixii is the proud owner and wearer of Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator. This has to be the craziest looking head piece in the game. It makes the Druid Tier 10 briarthorn headpiece look boring in comparison. The Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator not only looks cool, it also shoots lightning out of it every 30 minutes!
I can’t believe I have been playing this game for over 3 years and have never been introduced to this marvelous item. It’s so cool it ought to be an Epic, not a Rare.
And yes, Cass is jealous.
Are there any items in the game that you personally think of as Epic? I’m sure there have to be other wonderful items lurking about out there!
