Nythendra

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.

Nnedi – 110 Draenei Elemental Shaman

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.

Brightpaw

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.
