It’s now been over a week since I updated this site, and about as long on any tweets, and the reason is simple – World of Warcraft. After Will got the game recently, my group has been more focused than ever on having some fun in that game. We are mostly currently in our early-mid 20s, hunting through Redridge Mountains and frequently running dungeons. This character (Eromar, my Draenei Shaman), is my first character to really spend a lot of time in the instances. We’ve already run Deadmines and Wailing Caverns, and plan to run Deadmines again tomorrow and Blackfathom Deeps on Monday.
Playing a Shaman is a bit of a new experience for me. The only previous characters that I got above 15 were a Warlock, Warrior and my current main, a Paladin. The Shaman plays like none of those, instead focusing on totems and buffs to enhance the group. It is a lot of fun and I’m thoroughly enjoying this group. At the moment, we have a feral Druid, protection Warrior, combat Rogue, holy Priest, enhancement Shaman and retribution Paladin. We also have a few other characters in this range, but that seems to be our main group. However, I think the retribution Paladin will be making a Warlock soon to provide crowd control and debuffs. There is also another Rogue in our group of friends, but he is in his late 30s, so we don’t group with him yet.
These dungeon runs gave the game a whole new life for me. I’ve run dungeons before on my Paladin, but not many, and not with a reliable group of people. Knowing everyone in the group and running dungeons is a lot of fun, and it is an experience I wish I would’ve done years ago. The game is easy to solo, and fun that way, but running dungeons is much more interesting. I can’t wait until this group gets higher and more dungeons open up. The end game dungeons are a hell of a lot of fun.
