So patch has been out for a couple of weeks now and I am going very slowly through the content. It has been really hard to find the energy to deal with Nazjatar. I dislike the area. In fact, honestly, I cannot think of a zone I have detested more than this one, maybe Suramar city; but that was one section of an entire zone. I have seen a few comments on twitter suggesting once you get flying it is amazing…but I feel the sensation of flying after 11 months would be amazing no matter where it was.
I much prefer mechagon as it seems easier to locate quests and move around on a ground mount.
There are a few spots in both zones where the respawn rates are completely over the top fast and others where you have to battle to the death for 1 creature every few minutes. So I feel there is some minor annoyances with quests and I am hoping I don’t have to do them for too long. I like the bejewelled quests and the string ones – but I have been a lover of puzzle games for a very long time.
We have been running around and questing with Apophis when we can be bothered struggling through them. I really want flying though. The three of us as pirates in Mechagon.
Overall it is nice to have new content for dailies, even if I am still trying to figure out the new essences and necklace stuff. Apophis was saying that his necklace is at 53 or something and I only just hit 50 a couple of nights ago. he has been doing really well keeping up with his dailies and island expeditions. Makes me feel guilty, so I have to fix that.
I am up to the scenario now, which I might try and get done tonight, but we ran Apophis through LFR for Jaina so he could get through the war campaign and maybe we can do the new scenario together at the same time.
Hubby and I went a little crazy today and we ran scenarios for the better part of the morning to get the lovely Saturday achievement, during which we managed to get a fair few other achievements.
I actually really like scenarios, quick little events that are fun to do. I want to do some heroic ones, but at the moment I am still working through the normals.
So here are the achievements we got today for the scenarios, I must remember to investigate the other achievements that are available to be done:
I didn’t realise there was an achievement for doing Theramore’s fall at 90, but there you go! It really only took us about an hour to get through all of the scenarios needed for the Scenaturday achievement, I can’t really tell because we were doing other quests in between. Fun though..really fun!
Tonight, I was determined to do the new scenario, and I loved it!!!
I had heard mixed reports, and as usual I had no complaints 🙂 I can’t wait to see more of them as thy will be quite enjoyable o do when you just want iTunes with a couple of mates though some quick things.
I liked that I could blow stuff away and not worry about aggro or threat or healing etc. Obviously having a healer does make a difference if you are grabbing bundles and bundles of pats, but if exercising caution, you could survive quite easily without.
Anyway when I came out of my scenario, I landed on top of someone. Just another person until the name registered in my brain and I actually squealed. Hubby thought I was mental. I then proceeded to jump like a maniac because Akabeko was standing right in front of me!
Akabeko! THE AKABEKO!!
After a moment of complete speechlessness, we had a quick chat and swapped battletags. Of course, I was too chicken to actually talk to her after that, but small steps ok? I also have to thank another special Druid for helping that connection 🙂
I did the scenario on a couple of toons, did some healing on my pally in PVP and then decided to call it a night!
