With Rukgut hitting 80 and farting around searching for the SpiritBeast, I'd lost some of the drive to use him. I needed a break, but whocould I use? The next highest level character I had was one that Ireally didn't like.
I wasn't a big fan of Death Knights. Even after I levelled one to 60, Ijust left him in Thrallmar. I couldn't get into it. Wasn't feeling it,so to speak. The class was spreading across servers like locusts, and anumber of people who played the class came off so cocky I wanted toreach through the monitor and smack the DPS out of them.
Rukgut had hit a wall. Rokk wasn't doing anything. I respecced him and took him for a walk.
Next thing I knew, he was 64, over 200 in Blacksmithing and Mining, andhis fishing was coming along.
Wow. Who knew?
Rokk is Unholy for the most part, with a ghoul pet. Maybe the pet givesme that feeling of familiarity of questing alone, yet not really beingalone. Maybe it was that 63 gold elite that I killed back when I was61. Hard to put my finger on it, but there's a certain level ofsatisfaction that can be found by killing something face to face.
In blogging news, BigRedKitty has hung up his blogging tights. Sad day,but I wish him all the best. If it wasn't for BRK, Rukgut would benothing.
