World of Warcraft

I’ve gone hippie

The brutes are now druids, but don’t worry, they’re still very brutal, only a bit softer (mostly because of the feathers). Read further to know why we changed our main chatacters.

Where the hell have I been? Well, Sardoken and I have been chasing butterflies and enjoying the change of seasons. We had a great Halloween, filled with good (and less good) horror movies.

We’ve also been reflecting on a way to enjoy WoW without being constantly burned out. Spending our entire WoW time hunting achievements was easily getting tedious. We needed to enjoy more of what the game has to offer, and we really didn’t enjoy instancing with our hunters. So we went back to our druids. Don’t worry, we’re still brutal, only a bit softer (probably because of all the feathers).

When Sardoken told me that he wanted to main back his druid, I thought about leveling mine to keep him company. But, as I was playing with my moonkin, I realized how much more fun I had than with my beast master.

Eventhough the DPS of my balance druid isn’t as big as my hunters’, I just have more fun casting spells and shapeshifting. Also, I’ve missed my Tauren and I’m glad to find her back, meet Dragondoe.

I’ve practically caught up on on almost all Legion content, I’ve even started “Balance of power” which I didn’t with my hunter. I ran an heroic, a normal raid, a few mythic dungeons and had fun doing these! Now that’s something I thought I’d never say!

Until a week ago, I always thought that LFR and LFG were more than enough for me. I guess that playing the wrong class never motivated me to get out of my comfort zone. I dreaded running dungeons and raids, grouping up in general was like a stressful nightmare. This made me feel left out in the game for years. My moonkin, on the other hand, made me realize that all these things are actually fun and make me look forward to my next gaming session.

At the moment, Sardoken and I are in the middle of our 3 week Christmas holidays, which means that we have more time to game! Here’s a list of all the things that I wish to accomplish in WoW before the end of the most wonderful time of the year:

  • Getting exalted with Ravenhold so, I finally get the title “The Insane” (nothing new, but like that it will be official :p);
  • Finishing all quests in Suramar to get the “Insurrection” achievement;
  • Getting the fishing artifact
  • Leveling my Legion reputations, including the fisherfriends;
  • Getting my classmount;
  • Progress in “Balance of power”;
  • Getting a cool transmog because Dragondoe looks like a homeless gypsy.

There’s a lot more that I would like to do, but what would be the fun in completing all at once, right?

On “going hippie”: Whatever makes you happy, man πŸ˜‰

Druids are a lot of fun! I’m quite fond of my boomkin, and I have fun being a kitty even though I’m pretty terrible at it. I’ve done some healing, too. The only Druid thing I haven’t really done much of is beartanking.

Oh my, right in my WordPress reader, there you were! \o/ Welcome back πŸ™‚

Chasing Achievements, that sounds very draining and not much fun. I hope all the feathers will keep you focusing on something that brings more joy this time around πŸ™‚

N’aww sweet story back when your first Druid was made.

Back when I had time for alts, I really enjoyed playing Hunter. But not full time.

Gorgeous transmog on Madstag πŸ™‚ Really glad to hear you are already finding out how to prevent another burnout.

Hii Dragondoe too. What great names you two pick πŸ™‚ How wonderful you discovered that LFR and LFG can be fun. Personally I get bored of dpsing very fast. HoTs all the way instead, keeps me on my toes.

It’s all about the right class, I guess πŸ™‚ That’s quite a list of things you want done during your holiday. I wish you luck πŸ™‚ And lots of fun. First things first though. Transmog! πŸ˜€

Hey Alu, thanks for the compliment about my transmog… In Azeroth, style is everything πŸ™‚

Actually we love to hunt achievements, but only doing that easily becomes tedious.

As for LFR, we meant the contrary, we really enjoy real raids again. It feels good to tackle the end-game again, without pugs…

But, first things first: thefishing artifact! :-p
