So I finally made some progress on my hunter with regard to the legendary quest. I was caught on the PVP and group quest but my GM and I got together and managed to bypass that aspect (well, actually I went ahead and kept grinding one of the PVP BGs and managed to win). In turn, I’m starting the fun grind of getting exalted with the Prince and getting the 20 Secrets of the Empire.
Yesterday was a rather “productive” World of Warcraft day. I managed to hit 90 on my monk, get the helmet token for my paladin and started doing Flex on my hunter. I feel that the door to many things have opened up and it has motivated me somewhat to get a little more progress on my toons.
Mist of Pandaria gave us both a new race and class. It also increased the limit of characters to 11. As I am near completion in terms of leveling my monk, I have to ask the question whether or not introducing a new race/class in the upcoming expansion is worth it?
I’ve been really pushing my monk to 90 at the moment. I feel with the expansion nearing the end, I should just finish up leveling my monk and getting him to the spot where the rest of my gang is. Unfortunately, the leveling process feels as tedious as ever but being familiar with all the quest lines has made progress quite expedient.
I leveled my pandaren monk from 71-80 today. It took a fair amount of time but at the same time the entire episode felt quick. It might take me anywhere between a week or two to get him to 90. However, I wanted to share my thoughts on this class thus far.
Currently, I have three main goals left in this expansion: 1) Kill Garosh on Flex; 2) Get the Golem mount; 3) Finish the legendary quest. Well, today I managed to get very close to completing one of my main goals as my paladin finally finished up the legendary cape portion. I will say that I was extremely ecstatic.
One major problem in first world countries is how unstable numerous economies are. I believe that the post dot com collapse created huge ramifications in destabilizing the job market for better and worse. Gone are the days of pension plans, life time employment/job security and the ability to plan long term. Instead, the market has become extremely demand based and laws do not adequately protect individuals. Of course, it has empowered certain types of people with skill sets such as people in technology, but that aspect has been flimsy still. That said, new models of earning money are evolving and I want to delve into this aspect.
While Democrats celebrate their victory for avoiding the government shutdown, what was highlighted in all of this turmoil was the weakness in the way the government is run at the moment. Politics, like many aspects growing in Americans’ lives, are nothing more than a large spectator sport at this point, where nothing truly beneficial is being done directly for people, but only for the people in charge running the show. And those people running the show are the lawmakers/lawyers primarily.
There are a good number of people who hate LFR. Many wish it never came into existence in the World of Warcraft. Some people also claimed that LFG destroyed server communities. However, I think many of the issues with LFR, and before that LFG, were the result of poor experiences in LFR and to a degree LFG, not the actual content presented in either systems. My blog post will discuss LFR, it’s merits, the current problems and possibly examine ways of handling some of the critical issues.
I had a fun experience when I was trying to valor cap on my paladin. I figured that while I required a few hundred valor points to cap, I might as well do some of the older LFRs since they are pretty easy these days. Fortunately, they’re still being run by people looking to gear up or perhaps, like myself, valor cap. I totally destroyed Mogu’shan Vaults part 1, only getting some level of competition in DPS against a slightly lesser geared monk and death knight. But part 2 was far more interesting for me.
