I know it’s been awhile since I posted, but there’s just not much going on at the moment. I’ve been grinding my Consortium rep to Exalted for the epic dagger + that nifty Diamond recipe. I’ve also been trying to hit Revered with Aldor for Korlyn and level two different pets (68 Dragonhawk, 62 Winterspring bear). Throw in the weekly Kara runs, ore farming, etc. and that pretty much covers my gaming time for a given week.
I’ve also been leveling my 64 warrior when I can, although right now I’m kinda stuck. When did everyone quit running SP/UB? I haven’t been able to get a group for like a week now. Meanwhile folks are still yelling for Ramparts and even BF. Call me confused but I just don’t get it. I’m a bit stuck because I don’t want to level right past it — there’s some neat stuff for tanks in there. Plus soloing as a even a partial Prot spec kinda sucks. So I haven’t figured out what to do there, very annoying.
The upside is that with 375 Engineering, I get some pretty nifty toys at my disposal to ease the pain. First of all, my Mithril dragonling is level 75 — how cool is that? He’s sure handy to whip out when I get into an ugly fight. Too bad his cooldown is like an hour, I think 5 or 10 minutes would be more reasonable since he dies after a minute. 60 seconds is barely enough for one fight when you’re a tank. Luckily I made myself two dragonlings, so I can actually pop the second one if I need another helper. I usually switch to the Gnomish Shrink Ray after I burn my Dragonling though. If any of you other engineers have a better suggestion on handy trinkets for PVE soloing, feel free to post (I’m Goblin, so bear that in mind!).
One thing I’m really looking forward to is making the Goblin Rocket Launcher. That +45 stamina should be pretty huge for me as a level 64 tank. I’m still collecting the mats for it with my other toons, but I hope to make it soon. Call me weird, but I’m assuming I’ll be pretty uber with an extra +45 stamina in a trinket slot. Plus my tank is also an enchanter, so I have all the nifty stamina chants on her gear as well. Maybe not all the chants, I haven’t farmed any of the drop recipes yet. The only non-trainer recipe I currently have is Enchant Boots – Vitality which I haven’t found much use for actually. I bought it early on before the drop recipes had an established value and clearly didn’t put much thought into how much benefit it would provide. Oh well.
So anyway, I’m really hoping this stupid 2.2 patch comes out soon so we’ll have new stuff to talk about! Feel free to make a suggestion if there’s something you guys want me to research for you ;)
