Over the last few weeks I have set myself a few goals to reach, before Pandoria is out. And I have reached almost all of them ! My mage is now 85, albeit in somewhat crappy gear, so I hope to pick up better stuff soon as I start question with him towards 86. That was the main thing, now I am trying to get Morpheus´s fishing up to 525, am at 490 or so now, so that should be doable. His leather working is a few points short of 525, hope there will be a little overlap like they did in Cata. Only thing I didn´t manage to do is get Morphea´s engineering to 525.
First thing I´ll do once the expansion is out is run to the pet trainer. So if I come across anything nice, I can tame it and pick it up . Morpheus will be the 1st to level, but knowing I probably won’t sprint to 90 on just one guy, I’ll log into the others as well. Hope the quests are varied enough to not get too repetitive.
The last few days I have played around with the new pet battles system that is now in place on the Beta server. It’s much more fun than I expected to be honest. It is turn based, but you can use multiple pets for one battle. I made a small video of the first two pet battle quests, as you can see below.
Thanks to the press event Blizzard did last week, we got an overload on news on Mists of Pandara ! I already liked the idea of Pandas (unlike a lot of other people), but it seems to get better and better. There will be seven new zones to quest in. Pet battles, farming, and one of the things that might be the most fun: scenarios.
Since I am in a small guild, we usually don’t have the classic tank, healer and dps setup online to do guild instance runs and the like. But in scenarios, you don’t really need that setup. Also you can queue for them from what I heard so far, so if there isn’t anyone on you can still do those and be rewarded with valour points etc.
Quite a few hunter changes for the better lately made me want to play morphea again ! All my pets are now the same level as I am and when I would tame a new one, he would be the same level as well ! No more annoying pet leveling. Also feeding now just heals the pet, which is nice. The happiness thing was marginalised anyway, so why not get rid of it all together.
My pet cat got a new skin once again. Boris started off as a white sabre tooth from Winterspring, back in Vanilla. Then he gained some black stripes, I think in TBC or in Wrath. Now he’s got a bluesish skin and mane, and more fearsome teeth !
Yes, I am still playing. And according to Raptr, it’s still my most played game. I am basically popping in with one of my characters for an hour or so. Do some dailies, one or two pvp matches or a quest chain of some sort.
The Deepholme Dailies are nice enough to do every now and then. There is a ice overview over here ! Not a big fan of the Tol Barad ones. Usually a bit too crowded and a bit too annoying !
