World of Warcraft Cinematic – Safe Haven

Varok Saurfang realizes that if he is to secure a future for the Horde, he must reach out to the one who led it in the past.

The Battle for Azeroth, and the future of the Horde, continues…

Welcome back, Thrall. #ForTheHorde

 

The Green Ironwoman

Well… she’s level 30. Posting this will probably be the kiss of death, but the Ironman challenge continues. Again. I stayed Horde, but decided to go Goblin female because why not? I’m sure the fact that she’s now my highest level Ironmanwoman is totally coincidental.

First Aid is quite interesting now. Winter Veil is kicking off, and selling Small Eggs has been quite profitable. I’ve managed to skill up her First Aid to 300. One bandage heals her for more Health than she even has. Handy!

Guess we’ll see if she dies in the next day or so, as per every other Ironperson I’ve posted about. Fingers Crossed… again.

Hordly Zavage

After a week of vacation away from snow, I came home and decided to advance my Pandaren Ironman. He was at the point where he had to make the choice in the Pandaren storyline – Alliance or Horde. It pretty much came down to a coin flip, and it came up tails. So Horde it was!

Zavage tore it up like, well, like a savage. By the time I walked away, he was level 21 and still qualified as an Ironman. That officially makes him my highest level Ironman challenger yet!

Leveling him isn’t my only goal. I’m also trying to build some gold on him. That’s potentially tougher than leveling. He can’t have professions, and he can’t run dungeons. He can’t group up. His gear is just north of ass-tastic. Needless to say, it’s another uphill battle.

Honestly, that’s about it with me and World of Warcraft. I’m not doing anything really end-game, and I’m earning enough gold with the Order Halls to buy tokens. Hopefully this Ironman thing carries my interest for a bit longer. Otherwise, things are gonna get mighty sparse around these parts.

 

The Boost to 100

Bull100

 

I snapped. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the most logical explanation I can come up with. I mean, why else would I throw everything away and just start over?

It  all started, well, yesterday. My intent was to log in to WoW and get my chores done (don’t fool yourself, just because garrison gold missions got lobotomized doesn’t mean there aren’t still chores to do). But when I got to the character select screen, I saw it.

That damn 100. My boost. It twisted a dagger in my brain.

I’d posted numerous polls on Twitter, trying to come up with a class to use the boost on. I wanted to go Death Knight because, well, can you really have too many? In Legion that answer is yes (grinding artifacts on multiple characters will be a full time job) but in WoD? Hells no.

The more significant question was the one I always toss around. Why? Why boost another character? What was I going to do with this toon? Add him to the pile? Things had changed with the nerf to garrison treasure missions. No longer was it a benefit to have multiple characters racking up gold because, well, now there was no longer that option. Now, if you wanted those six or seven characters to make gold you had to do more than just click a few buttons. You had to USE them to DO something. That took time out of my day. Time I wasn’t willing to spend.

I was already questioning why I was going through the motions. On my Alliance server, I had a few hundred thousand gold socked away. On my Horde server, I had just over one million gold. I wasn’t raiding. I wasn’t doing anything but logging in, making gold, and logging off.

I think that’s when things went south on me.

Legion was coming out at the end of the month. Demon Hunters were going to be playable in about a week, but Legion was the goal. Was it too late in WoD to use the boost? What could I get done in a month?

I decided to find out.

I got a Tauren DK to 60 on a brand new server with no support classes. No sugar mama. Just the Big Bull, and a quickly rolled up AH toon. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn’t have picked a PVP server if I wanted to make the most of my ability to farm things for gold. Oh well.

Like I said, I got him to 60, gave him professions, and boosted him. My seventeenth Level 100 character.

And now, he will be my sole focus until Legion. No dailies on my other characters. One toon. One server. One focus. My one Horde army.

Let’s see what happens.
