Hey everyone, it's been a while since I made a real written post on my blog, so I thought I'd take a moment...
[Server] Shutdown in 1:00
... to write you all a real blog post full of stuff that I have been too lazy to write about...
[Server] Shutdown in 0:30
... Hehe, I find it so ironic that on the nights that I decide to stay up all night and play WoW I forget that it's Tuesday and an inevitable shutdown is scheduled...
[Server] Shutdown in 0:15
... But it makes this moment a really good opportunity to tell you about my WoW shenanigans while I'm still in a WoWy mood. XD
So, I rarely ever queue for heroics without a tank friend since I refuse to heal just for insta-queues, but last night I decided to just do it, and the average wait time was way less than it usually is for a DPS by about 10 minutes! My guess as to why it was a shorter wait time is probably because of all the straggler Tanks and Healers trying to cap their Valor Points for the week! XD Anyway, I ran a couple "random" Zandalari Heroics (both Zul'aman..yuck) and then a random regular Heroic (Shadowfang Keep) and the groups I PUG'd with were such good sports!
I was in a stupid "I'm famous" mood tonight (lol), so I pooped my YouTube URL chat macro in Party Chat at the end of the instances and I felt really embarrassed when the healer in the first group actually knew who I was... DX Mind you, I don't click that macro in every single group I PUG... I'm not that full of myself lol... and usually no one even knows or cares about WoW parodies or so it seems ^_^. So, I was happy that someone knew me, but I was terribly embarrassed at the same time. Hehehe... *awkward grin* But the rest of the group all were genuinely interested in the link and actually went to it! XD Such nice folks online in the wee hours of the morning, I swear...anyway... XD
Regarding the title of this post: I am really liking 4.2. I think it's because it's easy mode for me, or I have discovered a way to get gear faster than I usually ended up with in previous patches. I'm totally diggin' the ability to convert Justice Points into Honor Points! Because now I can put together a decent PvP set to stop hating PvP before even setting foot in a Battleground!! XD I'd definitely not consider myself the PvP type, but if you watched the tail end of my Livestream this last Sunday, you may have seen an Isolte PvPing AND Arena-ing!!! And what's cool about running a bunch of Zandalari Heroics is that I got PvE gear from Boss drops while farming JPs to turn into HPs. Win. Win. Win. XD
Honestly, I never thought I'd ever step foot in an arena, but Crykoda was obviously very successful in convincing me to join him in 2v2 (Feral Druid + Enhancement Shaman). I honestly never thought the resilience gear was going to make that much of a difference for me (cuz I always just thought I sucked at PvP though I never had the gear, mind you...) so I assumed I just hated it and would never PvP at all 'til very, very recently ^_^. After getting just 2 pieces of the Valorous set and hopping into BGs and Arenas... I think this PvE and lore junkie may actually ENJOY PvP! Whodathunkit?! It's funny too 'cause I could have had 2 more set pieces than I have now because I stupidly thought I'd enjoy PvP healing, so I wasted some Honor on 2 healing pieces. But Crykoda and I did a test 2v2 where I just stayed in my Enhance PvE spec and PvE gear... And we found ourselves #WINNING!! LoL.
It's funny right now too because as I type this, my spec is still the same as it's always been: Enhance PvE. I never respec'd for PvP and our Wins-Losses in 2v2 is 24-23!! Haha. Maybe I should buckle down and do some Enhancement Shaman PvP research... or I'll worry about that later.
All I know is: I'm having fun right now and that's all that matters. XD
