I made a concerted effort this time round to change class/role and try something new. What this has made me realise is how much I love and miss playing my mage. Not sure what that means moving forward into the new xpac, but I have enjoyed jumping on her and doing the odd heroic/mythic/LFR. I still enjoy tanking and i adore my druid, but my mage…she is all I have ever known since day 1 and she is comforting to me. She is my happy place.
It was funny because Ben, Drew and I were discussing the desire of coming home to play way and when you are out how you want to just be at home playing. Drew said he has never experienced that really except maybe in BC days. Oui and myself though – feel it all the time. Azeroth is my happy place especially thinking about tanking or my mage. I feel I need this Tshirt – one for every day of the week.
Her gear is currently at 927 and I have been building that up pretty slowly over the last few weeks. I would like to get her into a normal Antorus with Craig’s group on Saturday evenings and I found out yesterday min ilvl is 920. I would have gone yesterday but I had just completed LFR with Drew which means I wouldn’t have gotten any loot. We weren’t supposed to be home last night for dinner – but plans with the work people fell through at the last minute which was why we did LFR earlier.
Her DPS is pretty good over the last week I have been watching and the above was on a very good AOE/stand still sort of fight – I was surprised I could hit that number with the gear. So I took a screenshot! Who wouldn’t? Ben didn’t believe me yesterday when I said mages were in a good spot, just shows another one doing over 2 mil, and I am pretty sure this was the one playing Frost spec.
This is a better representation of where I am sitting at the moment on my mage with her current gear in frost spec. A spec I haven’t played in a long time; I was playing arcane for a little which I was enjoying as well and getting approx the same numbers. The only reason I am in frost at the moment is because I am trying to get the hidden artifact – it looks amazing. I will likely switch back to arcane once I have completed that achievement and confirm if the numbers are better or the same and then just pick a spec I enjoy playing. I have a natural aversion to arcane because that was the only spec you could play for 2 xpacs and I hated being forced to pick a spec because of DPS/damage output.
In the LFR’s I have run I was managing to hold my own and I am pretty proud of that. It isn’t brilliant, but a few more weeks with some gear upgrades ( I have a lot in the 880 space still) and a better choice of stats to work with and I will be begging to bring her to some alt runs with our guild if we ever have another tank 🙂 I was in the top 5 – 8 for the LFR we ran yesterday which is bad I know with those numbers, but the top 4 were always stupidly high…like over 1.5 mill type players.
Finally managed to get this achievement! Every LFR for Antorus I have done has Eonar down already so I haven’t ever done it on LFR. So frustrating. But I finally got it done!
