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.
Mostly, I’m looking forward to hitting 90 so that I can use my monk in LFR and see how well he does compared to other classes. The damage thus far has been decent but I attribute part of that to the BoA I’m using. So I’m very eager to see how he’ll perform once I hit 90 with the BoA gear I have lying in his pack. After doing some initial gearing with the Timeless Isle stuff, I’ll probably run around, collecting coins and try my hand at a few rares on the Isle of Thunder so that I can get a key to the treasure room. If I can obtain anywhere between 10-12 coins, I’ll run some of the older LFRs in the hope of picking up a trinket and better weapon, not to mention easy valor. Then I hope to get into a Celestials and Ordos group and pick up a piece of gear or two.
Speaking of Ordos, I’ve been running that world boss now on as many toons as possible. This week I had quite a bit of luck in getting a few really slick warforged pieces of gear. I was particularly stoked when my paladin received the shoulder piece, which was a far better version of what he was using. Hopefully, I’m able to pick up the belt, bracers and neck piece as well. That would make him really competitive in ilvl as a normal mode raider’s gear.
One thing I haven’t been doing a lot of is Siege of Orgrimmar LFR. The only time I’ve been doing these is whenever Yoni streams and gets a group together. I’m not sure how bad things still are but I think people have said that the groups still are quite wretched, depending on the day of the week. I might be forced to do LFR on Tuesdays but that does interfere with Flex.
Regarding Flex, I’m very close to completing the whole thing. Only have to do Garrosh. But I’m going to see if I can get my hunter and/or shaman into the next part 1 and part 2 flex raids. At this point, there’s only a few items left in Flex for my paladin and the rest are either in normal mode or from Ordos. It would be great to have other toons doing Flex runs.
