Prime (US-Lightbringer) v. Nythendra – Emerald Nightmare Heroic – last pull at 21:20 in my Facebook live stream:
No loot for me, just gold on my bonus roll too! Oh well. I seriously need to gear up, so I can improve my dps. My ilvl is only 827. Many of my guildies have been running mythic dungeons for the past two weeks and have 840+ ilvl. It would also help my dps if I remember to refresh my totems! LOL. Pots would be good too, but so freaking expensive atm on my realm. Anyway, it was a good night, fun, and the mechanics weren’t especially complicated.
WoW isn’t the place to discuss politics, because some players are so ignorant. I considered this player’s comment about raping my candidate as hate speech, which belongs nowhere in this world. It is depressing and makes me so angry how her opponent’s supporters actually want her to die and have said so in WoW trade chat as well. This wasn’t the first time in WoW that I’ve come across such hateful, ugly, violent language. I reported this player for “language,” but I don’t know if anything will result from my complaint. I didn’t argue with him in trade chat, because I knew it would be futile. I would probably be insulted or called bad names. This election is so sad and gives me so much anxiety. And more than anything it’s so sad and hurtful that so many Americans hate women, immigrants, and people of color so very much. I play WoW to have fun, but I think trade chat will just get worse the closer it comes to election day. I can’t decide whether I should document what I see in trade chat, or have separate tabs for trade chat and other stuff, like guild chat and whispers. Trade chat isn’t the reason I play WoW.
After my shaman Nnedi dinged 110 the other day, I changed her race to Draenei because I am switching my main in this expac and will be raiding on my shaman instead of my hunter. I had rolled a dwarf because I wanted to play a different start zone, but playing a dwarf just didn’t feel like me, especially when I’m in dungeons. I’m so used to hearing that Draenei voice in my head and seeing her specific character animations. Plus, dwarves drink beer, while I’m more into vodka cocktails 🙂
My shaman Draenei looks almost exactly like my hunter they could be twins, except she has a slightly softer facial expression. My hunter on the other hand looks kinda angry, fierce, and defiant. IMO, Nnedi looks steady, strong, and ready. I wanted a change this expac, to feel excited again and have more fun, to explore this new character and develop her to be as powerful as I can. I’ve been playing hunter since 2006 (ten years!), and I’m ready for a new challenge.

Blizzard has a new feature: live streaming to Facebook with the Battle.net app. I’ve been trying it out on my Facebook page, and I might be becoming addicted. LOL. So many reasons to play WoW now, and so many endgame activities! However, it’s affecting my sleep and eating routines, and I have enough trouble sleeping when I’m not playing WoW. LOL. I’ve been a little depressed lately, and I want to get back to a more regular schedule.
I don’t usually eat after 6pm, except to have a small snack of some sort. But lately, because I’ve been waking up so tired, I haven’t felt like eating in the morning. So, I’ve been eating later and staying up late. Not exactly the best thing for my mental and physical health (chronic shoulder, neck, and back pain) to play WoW this much. But this expac is way funner than Warlords of Draenor, and leveling up was so much easier and quicker. Now, it’s all about leveling up my artifact weapon and gearing up for raiding.

In WoW, I acquired the artifact weapons for the other two Hunter specs. The Beast Mastery scenario was the easiest to complete of all three specs and took me back to Ulduar, which used to be my favorite raid. Wrath of the Lich King is still my favorite expansion. Maybe, Legion will change my mind.

I logged on at midnight last night to play the all new World of Warcraft expansion, Legion. Here, my hunter Batsheba claims her artifact weapon, Thas’dorah, Legacy of the Windrunners.
I started playing WoW again not only for fun and social interaction with my guildies, but also for a distraction from my problems and frustration with politics. I guess, as a way to relieve some of my stress and anxieties. But you can’t get away from this election even in WoW. For instance, a couple days ago when I was leveling my dwarf shaman in the Legion invasions, some dude invited me to join a guild named “Make Azeroth Great Again.” LMAO. NOPE. And yes, I saw in trade chat some of those LOCKHERUP hate speech. Next time, I see something like that, I’m reporting it.
Anyway, I fast-leveled my shaman Nnedi (named after the SFF author Nnedi Okorafor) to 60 in about six hours over three days by resetting the Legion invasions over and over. I did about 20 levels in 2 hours. Then, I used my character boost to level her to 100, with skinning and leatherworking maxed to 700. I’ve only got one more alt (my monk) to level to 100. This Tuesday, Blizz did a hotfix so that the invasions aren’t on a timer and are basically ongoing. It’s tempting to level more alts, but it is kind of a pain already. And it takes longer from 90 to 100. Plus, I don’t need another alt at this time, with the expansion coming out on Tuesday! Yay! Can’t wait.
