Restarting the Grind

Rate this Entry
With the recent news that a decent work around is in place for PVP in BGs I have started leveling a solo member of my old druid team on Magtheridon. I picked up the Glyph of the Stag, transferred over my leather chest, head, shoulder, legs, a cloak and a dagger. This morning I respec'd to guardian, reset my keybar from being a portion of a five boxed boomkin team to tank bar and queued up for some instances.

First instance up was was in souther barrens around level 42. Banged it out, dinged 43. Next up was one of the Dire Maul instances. Did the quests and tanked it with a hpally healing me. Then it was off to Scholomance, hit 44 and did another Scholomance. My Hpally dropped and a pug Elemental Shaman joined me in heal mode for a Dire Maul run. I had to tell the shammy to put on water shield and earth living weapon. Did pretty good and hit 45.

So my goal is to hit 80-88 as quick as possible and then I can blend my toon back into my shaman team which is sitting at 89. Time to tank my way to 90 as quick as possible. Uggh, I feel like I just did this grind two weeks ago before 5.2 dropped on my shaman. /wrists.

    Day to of regrinding to 90 and there is good news. /Follow was put back in for arenas. Good, now that is some awesome news. I worked on the toon after my night shift and before taking son to school so knocked out 46-49 doing instances and one BG. After sleeping for a bit I was able to get the old druid tanky up to level 50, knocked out Iron Man in WSG and picked up the level 50 epic WSG PVP bracers, it was a nice upgrade from the random dungeon blue reward bracers and increased my health quit a bit.

    Managed to run some AB, AV and WSG today. AV was nice in guardian mode due to being able to deny the alliance the ability to cap one tower almost the entire battle ground. Having potions, bark skin and the ability to regenerate health makes the bears very good at AOE along the lines of prot warriors, tankadins and blood DKs. Being a druid in AB was nice being able to have the push back (Typhoon) usable in all shapeshift modes for denying LM and towers in AV. Then having stealth to ninja stables 2-3 times to keep the alliance off of their game plan.

    Sometimes I forget how much fun low level BGs can be. So many tards, road warriors, Zergers, and ragers make me want to chuckle inside at times.

    Tomorrow continue my grind and hope to get 55 or close to 60. I would like to be able to tank/grind out 90 before the end of March. At least the new conquest system will allow me to revocer points quickly.

    Sitting at nearly 87 now on the druid. Quest grinding in Jade Forrest and banging out 1-2 instances a day and 3-5 BGs daily to cap out on honor. It is good to see that there are more bots in BGs now. I reported one yesterday and was rewarded with being kicked out of game... GG Blizzard, lets DC paying actively played customers as opposed to instantly doing something to the bot like freezing them for 5-10 seconds or what not.

    Kids have spring break this week so I get to play and extra hour or so in the morning so hopefully 90 before Friday or close to it so I can do some 89-90 PVP with the team to start working my keybinds, strategies, etc... so with me luck.
