My Priest Finally Hit 100! Yay!

amerHi everyone! it’s been a month i know. Just thought to let everyone know that I am happy to level my priest in less than 48 hrs since i got back playing on Monday. Though i know I’m back I will still be very busy with work starting on Monday I will have two jobs to go to. But I will still play when i can during my days off for sure. But i will still try to catch up on my activities in game and will still try to post something for everyone in the community to read about.

Leveling up

I love questing and storylines you do learn a lot from it. Not only does give you achievements but something to be proud of and having fun with of playing your character in game. I am still currently working on Nagrand area now but for the most part i did all of them. Including the Bonus objectives which is pretty good experience if your still leveling in specific area zones. I do noticed a lot that this expansion sure has a lot of 3 headed monsters out there. But overall experience so far is not bad at all. Just that you can’t fly around Draenor but still managed to use your ground mount and also added useful tool to provide an extra spell of what building you created within that zone. Its pretty convenient too. Leveling is fun and quick, i also enjoy playing with my friends of course.

Gearing up

As far as gearing up, I never really changed my gears since pandaria after i hit 100.. From the quests that i did I gotten some to upgrade my old gears which is convenient too. My priest does need to focus on gears with Intellect > Mastery > Haste > Multistrike = Crit > Versatility as priority right now. But im not worried about enchanting my gears yet since eventually we will be able to raid and get more upgrades. Guild also require everyone to be at least item level 630 to raid. Right now I am sitting at 606/660… Also the reason why my overall item level is 660 because of the Tournament gears from the Ring of the Trials which you can actually purchased for 50g take note you can only use these gears for tournament and pvp war games only. and Once you purchased it you cannot resell them back. This gears will just help you boost your item level and start running heroic dungeons for more PvE gears you needed for raids.

Dungeons

As i mentioned earlier there are requirements before you hit running the heroic dungeons. you need to do the Providing Grounds Bronze and Silver and a item level of 610. then it will be sufficient enough that you can run heroic dungeons, as far as normal dungeon i did start at skyreach dungeon where i was able to start my Legendary ring quest. For more information about how to begin the quest please refer to this link from WoWhead. Some are frustrated just even trying to get the silver level of providing grounds because it is quiet a challenge to do, but its a test for each character you play and to polish your skills on how you handle the situations in each level. But I suggest not giving up and don’t let the frustrations get the best of you. Im sure you will get it done eventually.

Garisson

Im happy to say that my garrison is level 3 castle now. Still working on my professions, work orders, and missions for your followers. So far its been a daily routine to do all of that. But I like the idea that you can also visit your party leaders garisson and explore as well. This really reminds me back ways years ago when i started playing Warcraft expansion. Building barracks and inns and lumber mills for resources it really does help, though i know this is all new to the expansion but i think most players embrace a little change for the mmorpg setting. Just hope no one will get bored by it and just continue to have fun playing the game.

Raiding

As far as raiding goes, guild does require players to hit 630 item level before resume raiding. I am not committed to do raiding just yet because of my busy schedule, though I won’t surprise myself to be part of it again as I am also excited to discover and explore the new raid zones and also get some cool gears for sure. I am still in ONE PIECE guild in Staghelm server, I missed everyone and I am still thankful to be part of the guild despite my absence, though im not a FT raider im still a member of the guild and playing casually no pressure at all for now. But this are just one of those things to look forward of playing the game over and over again.

Anyway, For now I know there’s a lot to catch up on everything on this new expansion but overall it was quiet overwhelming with the changes and yet again to level your characters.. but at least there is something to look forward of something to do right? How about you how was your journey so far? Please share your experience with me and im sure we can both relate the challenges we encounter in this game. Feel free to also reach me on my twitter page @amerpriest or whisper me in game and add me in battletag Amergamer#1255 Thanks for dropping by guys! I missed you all!

 

OLRG: Fun Night! “I need more wine!”

OLRG

Wohoo! The other day, Sat March 15. The ladies i knew in our blogging community Ancient “ToTa of Tome of the Ancient Blog” and Mataoka “Matty of Sugar & Blood Blog” has always run some fun raids and dungeons every saturday for all those who don’t know yet. I know i asked ancient many times what time as I wasn’t sure what day either, just so happen since i had ancient in my friends list. I remember now that it was every saturday. Now, I added Matty’s battletag as well. Yay more bloggers in game!

Just some old ladies trying to have some fun that’s why this sentence “I need more wine” was so popular while we are in vent lol its so funny like we are all drunk hahaha. Anyway, First stop we went and try running Mogu’shan vaults! while clearing the trash we also learning the fight mechanics how to kill those stone lions, but “Team work” was the key and we did it! We are awesome!

Matty and I were the healers that night. After running Mogu’shan vaults successfully. We went to clear Blackwing Descent, I also got few achievements done it was really great! I thought we were done for the night but Matty, her guildie i think, Me and my friend Alf decided to go try kill first boss of Icecrown Citadel and so we did, we also finished the second boss.. I brought my mage this time. But when we try to kill the ship boss we failed! it sure was a long fight with only 4 of us. But it’s okay! still it was a fun run!

Overall my experience with these folks, made my day. I am for sure looking forward for next week. If you also want to add my battletag its Amergamer#1255 just let me know who you are so ill make a little sticky note in game. I like going back previous raid dungeons and have achievement runs like this never gets old. Guild is doing the same thing as well but its random days and some nights I’m not available to run with them. So every saturdays with OLRG team is awesome! =)

Thank you guys for having me this week. thanks Matty for having this event. And also, Ancient accent in vent so cute! hehehe…Yes, We also wished JD Kenada of Amateur Azerothian was with us, as Matty mentioned him for organizing events in Azeroth. I will also like to help out and anything for the community! Thank you.  As always Happy gaming everyone! =)

To Suffer, To Have Fun In game or nothing at all!

20131127021116a0dn4qlzofbb3nte

This topic right now is about how frustrated I am being in a PvP server lately. Before never bothered me since most of the time I was focused to only one character to raid, My priest. And So I upgrade gears as any raiders would do. I have alts but i mainly used them to benefit from their professions to accommodate the needs of my main character.

Also main reason why I had to moved from PvE server to PvP server before is mainly because of raiding environment of where I was then that guilds decides to disband prior of me moving to different realms. Sometimes you really had to sacrifice and spend real money to find a better home somewhere else since the server seems to be dead, or look to find that raiding guild you always wanted to be part of, I did that and applied, I had fun playing with new players no complains, no regrets at all that’s me and my opinion only, I don’t know if others sometimes feel the same way too.

I did took a break for a while about a year i think. I saved about $179.88 (a year) of monthly subscription of $14.99. prior to that i also spend so much real money just to transfer characters to different server or just to really spend buying mounts that will cost you $25.00 or Name change $10.00 and pets. Not to mention the whole 7+ years of monthly subscription. Blizzard sure is making lots of money don’t you think? But its okay.

I know i had to be practical as this is only a game but remind you, that you did put a lot of time invested to where you are “as some think, there characters are their legacy” but as of lately, I had to spend real money to moved my characters again to PvE server due the fact Im not happy anymore in PvP server where I am was at, It’s been bothering me while I quest with my alt toons, as hordes ganking at me, camping me or my friends i group with, its no fun anymore, my situation now a days since I came back playing is way different because right now I can spend more time soloing, questing, taking care of not just my main character but my alt characters too.

I totally understand the game concept, that’s how it is PvP vs PvE its a debate if you asked me. A lot of different opinions from players who either likes to play more challenging environment like PvP realms. or Just a normal peaceful environment PvE servers. In the end of the day, it is YOU who will choose how you play, what you will do, if you want to have fun or not, or just quit. It is also a choice to spend real money or not. It is a decision you must decide like myself that I rather spend $204.99 total this week just to move the following services than to suffer.

  • Guild Master Realm Transfer (Level 25 guild) with my Priest – $35.00
  • Character Transfer (Level 90 Mage) – $25.00
  • Character Transfer (Level 90 Rogue) – $25.00
  • Character Transfer (Level 87 Death Knight) – $25.00
  • Deluxe Digital Copy of New Expansion (Level 90 Boost, mount) – $69.99

These are things why? because I will be more happy to able to talk and get acquainted with other players while in a guild under my friends management while in PvE server with them. I can quest anytime of nothing to worry about hordes ganking at you, I can go to Timeless Isle and able to finish quests and have fun. I can raid, farm mats, quest, and level,  if I want to PvP i can flagged myself if need be or do some arenas, and battlegrounds. Enjoying the game is my goal, It’s currently stressful enough in real life and have to deal with that.

So In my case, World of Warcraft for me is an outlet from Real world of not to be stress, just to have fun playing the game. It doesn’t matter who you play with important is your enjoying it. Anyway, Hope you get my point and understand why? Some players do have different say how they play their characters. This is my two cents while I experienced being in a PvP realm. So now Im very glad despite i had to spend so much at least i don’t have to deal with it anymore and enjoy more playtime than i should. Anyway, Happy Gaming everyone! Thanks for dropping by.
