Topic 36: Farewell to Legion

Wow it has been a while for one of these. I was checking every couple of weeks so am super happy.  The end of xpac lull always makes it difficult to find things to write about so I am super happy I have at least 1 post for the moment, and fingers crossed other blogs to read it on.

Part 1 – What were your top 3 moments in Legion?

This could be anything! We want you to take a moment to look back and think about what it was that made Legion a great expansion for you? Did you achieve something in game for the first time during Legion? Was there a quest line or NPC or zone that you absolutely fell in love with? Or was there a piece of music or a mechanic that you fell in love with. Share your favourites in this topic 🙂

Part 2 – What are you most looking forward to about Battle for Azeroth?

For this one, it’s time to look forward. Whether you’re Horde or Alliance, there is much to look forward to in the new expansion. This topic isn’t necessarily focused on zones or NPCs that you’re looking forward to seeing (though that, of course, absolutely counts and of course feel free to write about these!) but maybe it’s something more than that. Are there some goals that you’re wanting to achieve now that a new expansion is on the horizon? Are there changes coming to your class that you are really excited about?

Part 1 – Top 3 moments in Legion

Definitely tanking. Just being the tank has been an amazing experience and one I do not want to give up.  If only my guild could change their raid days, it would make me super happy as I would be able to keep tanking.  I am actually really devastated I won’t be going into the next xpac raiding with them.  I hadn’t anticipated how much I would enjoy it.

I plan on tanking mythics still and my druid is likely to still be my main, so I will still get to see my purple bear 🙂

Ahead of the curve would be second. But that goes with the first 😀

Third would be getting the puzzle mounts – yes I know, I didn’t have to actually solve the puzzles entirely but I managed to get quite a few this xpac and I really enjoyed the running around with friends part of getting them.

Part 2 – What are you most looking forward to about Battle for Azeroth?

Levelling toons again. I really enjoy levelling and questing through content for the first 3-4 toons. I can just tune out, read what I need, farm the things . You can just be roaming around and dying because you forget you are not max level anymore and grabbing packs is not the smart way to get anything done 😀

I like seeing the new areas, appreciating the artwork. I take way too many screenshots at the start of the xpac because everything is so pretty and new and shiny!

I can’t ever seem to make it to the 5th toon. I wonder if that is because I don’t like the class as I generally level my fav 4 first.  Mage, Druid, Paladin, Warrior – then whatever I have next level highest.  I am stuck this xpac though as everything is still stuck at Drainor and I just can’t bring myself to get through it.  I might save up for my birthday and by myself some character boosts!  LOL

Mixed bag baby!!

I was devastated to learn last night, the mobile armory has been retired?!?! I was hut enough when the AH was stopped on the mobile app but I couldn’t really say I used it a lot. I would be lying if so.

The fact it would be really useful right now before a new xpac and whilst trying to make millions of dollars for a mount is irrelevant….really…it is just whinging for whinging sake.

But i used the armory a lot more, it kept me up to date on guild calendar – I logged in and signed up for raids on it, i jumped into guild chat if I was a passenger, I checked out my characters, planned for world events etc.

I attempted to log in last night to check when the War of Thorns was starting as I had remembered seeing it on the calendar, only to be greeted with this:

I was shocked! SHOCKED TO MY CORE! I am devastated and unable to feel connected to Warcraft. My addiction and withdrawal symptoms are peaking 🙂

They say they plan to move more into the companion app space, so we shall see what happens with that, but I miss having the connection to my guild and the ingame calendar. Hurry up and bring something back please Blizz.

Release date is getting closer and if you haven’t seen this handy little map, you should check it out now. Sydney is 8am AEST for worldwide release. I would suggest maybe hanging around until 10/11am before attempting it and see if the servers are still up at that point 🙂

I have organised leave from work for this (and a wedding in Sydney), originally it was going to be 2 weeks but then I changed jobs so honestly I am not sure anymore. I am currently in discussion with the bosses to find out if I can still take the leave as organised prior to my acceptance of the role.

Hubby might still be getting sent to India, we should find out more today, which would also put the plan for leave in jeopardy; I wouldn’t want to waste having 2 weeks off without him. But we shall see how all that pans out over the next couple of days.

Also did the War of Thorns Part 1. Sylvanas has a point about ensuring we don’t get attacked by the alliance with the new power of azurite. We can’t trust those alliance scumbags. :p  It is her job as the Warchief to ensure the horde is safe so I can understand her need to on the front foot when it comes to anything which could give them an upper hand.

I liked the wisp wall though, it was very pretty 😀  I am not really excited about the mount we get, I would much rather the alliance one:

It is much prettier than the Bat thing horde get, but also looks very badass.  Horde can like hippogrpyhs as well you know!!  So the play through was ok, I haven’t gone back for the world quests – I probably should for some gear on my lower toons.

Need to see what happens next!

 

Your absence is duly noted!

I would like to be able to give you some wonderful story of redemption, quests, adventure and dragons to explain where I have been,  sadly it is just life.

Adjusting to a new routine is taking longer than expected and I honestly am not feeling great about it. I am highly stressed and missing a lot of things I used to do because I had more time.

I officially stepped down as tank from the guild raid team. I will still be home and around for our Friday night raids but I can’t, in good conscience, take a tank spot when I am not going to be available for Wednesday.   I have returned to Karate (last week actually) as I was heartbroken at the thought of not going and then having raid cancelled as well. As luck would have it only 4 people signed up so they cancelled anyway. The Raidinator strikes again!!

I am trying to decide if I want to switch back to my mage for BfA or stick with my druid and considering my enjoyment with tanking I am leaning towards druid. I could always fill in on a Friday if needed in guild raid but it also means our mythic group has a tank that maybe we can continue with that in BfA! And let’s be honest – i want to be a purple glowy bear forever!! I might try kitty that way the gear isn’t too different for tanking 🙂
