My week of unemployment has suited me well! I have found a new job and start hopefully next week, I have received my study enrolment forms and things are really looking up. I can now relax and enjoy my "unemployment" as a mere two week holiday in between jobs, and make the most of my free time by playing Warcraft with my friends and enjoying the great weather in our pool!
After missing the chance to join our last run of ICC, the lovely Caterpillar over at <Is Out of Mana>
organised a second run. And you know I would never say no to a run through my favourite place in all of Azeroth! And boy am I glad that I did! I've never seen this baby drop, let alone be lucky enough to win it!
|Punchdance is very proud to wear such a special ribbon!|
Of course, I took my standard bunch of screenshots with Arthas. This one sitting on his lap is my favourite because it is the most creepy
|Punchy and Uncle Arthas, happy days.|
I still had a level 80 Druid (a second Casadella the Resto-kin) in <Is Out of Mana> from long ago, so I decided to dust her off. I had forgotten how nice it was to be in a social guild! She made it to level 84 before the Alt Bug bit me hard.
|Meet Casadella the II|
After always hearing about Neri's love for the Pandaren race, I realised I didn't have a single Panda in my entourage! I also don't have a Mage so I decided it was finally time to level one. Honestly, I haven't loved the Mage class for levelling. I'm sure it will get much better once I hit the level cap, but for now I am pushing through as Frost. It definitely feels weird not focusing on dot uptime and multi-dotting!
I was very happy to discover that a Pandaren Mage is the last class that <Is Out of Mana> needs to earn the Stay Classy - Classy Pandaren achievement. Neri and I had been levelling together, having a blast and now that we have finally caught up to Disconcur's Warlock, we can now smash through some dungeons as a trio. Boyfriend was interested in reactivating his account for about a half a second, and then went back to "Final No-Pants" Fantasy. Sigh. Can't win 'em all! It's been great to level as a cloth wearer too; so many amazing low level greens for transmog!
Whilst in a dungeon, I was lead by a fantastic Monk Tank and with a combination of that awe (as well as a burning desire for instant queue pops) I also rolled a Monk. I made sure to check the Classy Achievements and the guild was still in need of a Dwarf Monk, for which I was happy to choose. It was my first time in the Dwarf starting area which I highly enjoyed. And besides the trolls that can cross your path within Dungeon Finder, I am loving Monk tanking. Who wouldn't enjoy hurling a keg of beer at an enemy?
|Mmmmm transmogged Heirlooms!|
Today also marked the start of the Love is in the Air World Event. One of the many I need to finally finish What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been. Can't wait to get my Love Fool title this week!
|It's a tough life being level 21.|
I normally don't like to be all over the place, and more enjoy focusing in on one character and truly having a main. I seem to have thrown that all out the window this week.
|Awwwww! Warlock true love! Boyfriend and Casa|
How do you prefer to play? Do you have an Alt Addiction? Or do you stay true to your one and only?
