Paladin Leveling

I’ve been working on my paladin since I last posted on here, and Namiel is now level 75.  I spent a good period of time working on the 969 rotation that is used with paladin tanking. It is amazing how fast you can actually kill things as prot these days. I remember AoE grinding in my 40s and 50s and it taking forever, but with all of my abilities at this level, it seems to be taking no time at all to get mobs down. I plan to start doing normal instances. Hopefully I won’t get the parties killed very often.

Main Playing

Update from this weekend: I started playing my main again.

It’s kind of funny how I gained interest in Namiel again. It was probably in keeping up with this blog and in listening to back episodes of Twisted Nether Blogcast that really inspired me. I took her up to level 74, started working on a tank set, dual spec’d Ret/Prot, ran through Dalaran for my first time, got revered with Kalu’ak, and, over-all, just had a lot of fun with a character I didn’t enjoy for a long time.

The role I’ve always enjoyed doing is tanking. I originally leveled Namiel from the 40s to 70 as Prot, and I’ve been reading up on the changes to Paladin tanking on the Maintankadin website/forums. It seems to really haven’t changed a whole lot since BC, but I’m going to have to start running some instances to really get into a groove again.

New Character

That didn’t last long. I started a new character with my brother tonight. We’re leveling Alliance Characters on Kargath, neither of us have any above level 60, and I figured duoing this content would be easier and more fun than trying to solo it again (plus it gives us an opportunity to really play together). We got to level 10 tonight, almost finishing Azuremyst Isle. I’m playing a Shaman, Anodoin (planning on going elemental) and he is playing a Druid(planning on going Balance). The leveling was pretty quick, we did it in about three to four hours, and I had a lot of fun hanging out with him. Continue reading

Wailing Caverns

Well, Israhpem went into WC tonight with a party that consisted of 2 hunters, a mage, a warrior, and me. Initially, I thought this would be a good run, but I was terribly wrong. Continue reading

Ragefire Chasm

As the title suggests, I ran RFC today, multiple times. This allowed me to get to lvl 15, almost to 16.  I healed for these and practiced a Discipline way of healing rather than my older style of using chain Renew with Heals thrown in  when the “tank” got low. Continue reading

I had a marathon play session tonight and got Israhpem to level 13.  The link to the right of his Armory still isn’t working, but I’m thinking the character might still be a little too new for it have updated properly. Continue reading

I’ve played a few more times and gained a few more levels (8) with Israhpem. I also chose my professions: Inscription and Herbalism. I was very surprised how much the milled herbs were going for on the AH.

I’m also slowly updating the layout of this site to look more appropriate.  I will be improving my links and  blogroll in the coming days. If any readers (haha) have any links that might be appropriate, please leave a comment.

First Day

I went through the starting zone for the BE and got to level 5 without much trouble. I’d be worried if I had any trouble so far. The starting area was so full of new people I asked how old the server was, and got the answer of about 4 years. This surprised me because it was the recommended Normal server for new characters and usually those are pretty new. It must be overly underpopulated.

I was also very surprised to be invited to join a guild so early on. Apparently it is a guild of rerollers (perfect for me) called Nooblets. So I am happy to be able to say, I am Israhpem of Nooblets.

Introduction to the Experiment

This is a World of Warcraft Blog.

I am Chris the Abject, and I suffer from altitis. I have leveled and deleted characters on different servers that must number close to 100. These include a 56 priest, 30s of every class, and so many 20s as to be almost humorous if it weren’t simply too sad. As an experiment and a subject for this blog, I chose to do something maybe unconventional. Since I have such difficulty in staying with a race or class combination, (through the genius of my loving and beautiful wife) I decided to determine what race/class combo I would play through to 80 via a random number generator. But, maybe some history is in order before I go further into the experiment itself. Continue reading
