Posts Tagged “I suck at levelling”

And, of course, got immediately caught up in the wonderful world of pet battles.  As in, I spent 2 hours doing pet battles, and 1 hour actually levelling.  Or something like that.

Admittedly, progress was slow… either the map has been rearranged dramatically (doubtful) or I have just forgotten where everything is.

I also got distracted by the horseman… which we failed, because most of the people gathered there thought it would be more fun to carry on like idiots and swear at each other instead of doing the actual event.

I had some trouble getting into the quests, which has made levelling look really unappealing.  It feels like there is far too much ‘Kill Ten Rats’ going on, and not enough meaningful story development.  Although that could just be me.  I was also rather frustrated at how clunky my Warlock felt to play.  I’m hoping I get over that in time, once I get myself used to a new rotation (yes, it takes me a while… I know, I know).  Things were dying easily enough, and I only died to my own stupidity (sure Sar, you can definitely pull 20 mobs and live… that’s plausible!)  But it just felt… slow.  And clunky.  And yuck.

I forgot how much it sucks being so far behind everyone else in the guild as well.  I really haven’t had time to play lately, and I can’t help the fact that I am busy, but it is so frustrating.  Levelling is, of course, the only solution to this problem… it’s just the getting in and doing it.  I really hate levelling.  So much. 

Although, if I could level through my pets, I’d be pretty happy.

I am possibly the world’s slowest leveller.  But, eh, I’m actually kinda enjoying Hyjal while I am at it.

Apart from having to kill some dead goddesses crazy ex (who happened to be a bird).  That was weird.  I mean, she didn’t ask for her ex to be killed.  But, hey, whatever, I got my tail feather, and since when have I cared about the ethics of who or what I kill anyways?

And I’m pretty happy that asshole Staghelm finally got what he deserved.  Cos, you know, I never liked him** anyway.  Whacked out nutjob that he is.

I’m amazingly unhappy that I suck ass at playing WoW.  And haven’t levelled anything but a Hunter in so long that I keep running through angry crowds, hitting my feign button, and then dying… cos, oh shit, I’m a Warlock now.  Good grief.

I’m also still playing with the default UI.  And the nasty keybindings created through a mishmash of my old UI breaking them on the default, and the asshole who hacked my account way back when I had quit moving things around.  It’s a little annoying going to use Soul Fire and realising that’s (totally irrationally, WTF Hacker?) now bound to Fel Armor.

(I didn’t even know what spell was meant to be there, by the way.  I just kept hitting the button thanks to the worlds longest lasting muscle memory)

(I had also forgotten Soul Fire existed.  Until I found the button.  Realisation!)

(I also just remembered.  That spell I’m thinking of isn’t Soul Fire.  It was Chaos Bolt.  WTF, me.  Also, don’t know whether we are meant to use that spell any more, but what the heck ever.  Seriously)

So, summed up in a not so pretty table for you all:

Shit that has changed Shit has that stayed the same
Quests are even MORE unethical.

Staghelm is actually getting in trouble. 

Buttons everywhere (in a way I don’t actually understand, rather than my organised mess)

Guild rep, Guild everything.  Huh?

People keep talking about Pandaren.  I think it sounds silly, but it means I can now legitimately say “Just get Fatty to tank/heal/DPS that”.

Less people read this.  Which I think is a good thing for you all.

I suck ass at questing.

Staghelm is still an ass.

Buttons everywhere

Lag from holy freaking hell.  Damn it.  (actually, I was sitting at 450ms, which I would consider good.  But damn it, some asshole on Twitter [whoever the hell you were!] whined about 50ms latency.  Seriously.  Shut the hell up.  Whiner.) …. (must’ve been a Mage)

Mages are still everything I have always said about them.

I still make the worst looking tables IN THE UNIVERSE.

 

** I know, it’s really weird that I can remember posts that I wrote in 2008 well enough to link to them.  What can I say, I have no life.

** Also, I know the formatting is screwy on said post.  But damn it, I’ve changed theme like four times since I wrote that.  Shit has got to be messed up somewhere, OK?
