Echoes of War
quest ~finally~ done. It's kind of a pain in the ass. Until you do this quest, you cannot get any T3 armor. Becuase T3 is all quested and token based. It's not a bad idea exactly, but clearing trash sucks. A lot of Naxx trash isn't terribly fun. I'm looking at you, Abom and Plague wing trash. The Abom wing trash is a freaking hour+ clear to even get to the mobs. The Plague wing trash you need to kill just fucking sucks. The first time you clear, not a big deal. Because you're probably going to want to play with each of the 4 first bosses when you first start in Naxx to see which you want to work on killing first. I missed this point with HC. My PC was, at the time, dead and I was rather burned out on HC anyway. And our guild/raid leader decided not to work on Patchwerk, so I've never had a chance to finish the quest until yesterday. I don't even want to get into the frustration with that. I was likely passed over for T3 on Tuesday because I hadn't ifnished the quest and thus couldn't cash in the item. And it wasn't my fault. It's not like I could go finish the quest on my own. But because the guild/raid leader didn't want to clear trash for the guild, I couldn't finish. And I'm pretty certain that I didn't get my T3 item off Faerlina becuase of it. But it's done now and with any luck I'll get the shoulders item this week as we're working on Patchwerk this week. Cryptstalker Shoulders are hot.
I'm ticked that there's been ~no~ Hunter or Druid info for Burning Crusade, but other classes are not only getting talent trees and new skills, but they're getting previews of new armors and weapons. The only hunter related item I've seen so far has been a Hunter legendary, which is admittedly so. fucking. sweet. that I nearly wet myself with joy. 66.4 DPS, +27 agility, +1% crit, +2% hit, -10% attack speed, chance on hit to coat an arrow with ice, doing ~190 damage and slowing movement and attack speed by 35%. But that's been it. The only nugget of info for Hunters so far.
Eonar being down for 36 hours = the suck. I should go play on Kirin Tor, but tonight i'm too tired. I'm also not looking forward to getting another character through that 30-40 level range. I only just now escaped it with my Warlock. >_< I like my Druid though, and have been neglecting terribly. I guess it's because I want to get my Warlock to 60 so I can raid.
