BigRedKitty on the Podcast
Set the alarms early and get your coffee ready, because BigRedKitty will be our guest this Sunday on the Hunting Party Podcast. This Sunday marks the official ten year anniversary of World of Warcraft and who better to spend the hour with. We’ll ask BRK about his favorite WoW memories, and we’ll look ahead to the upcoming 10th anniversary events, and get his thoughts on Hunters and the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
We should have a full house this Sunday, so we’ll circle back with Artemishowl and Solarflair and get a report on their Blizzcon experiences, and if they managed to talk the devs into any Hunter changes.
I’m inching my way to level 100. I dinged 97 last night. I reckon I’ve logged about 15 hours so far with the expansion. I know this isn’t a race, but losing Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday has put behind a lot of my guildmates. I’ll catch up, but I’d rather be running heroics and gearing up with them. The good news is, when I’m ready to join them, they’ll still be running them, have better gear, and know all the fights. It should be a good experience for me.
I’m loving the Garrison a lot more than I thought. My initial plan was to focus on building up followers and getting them leveled. So I kept the Barracks, but then decided to ditch that in favor of the Dwarven Bunker. I think that is the right choice especially as I head into Spires and Nagrand. I’m hoping the increased chance for gear to proc an upgrade will get me into heroics a little faster. At any rate, it’s a lot of fun having an item get upgraded. I’ll most definitely take this building when I get to my alts. as they are very under geared compared to Darkbrew.
The Bunker is now level two, and my Inn is also level two, which means I can recruit a new follower each week. I should get the Salvage Yard questing in Spires. I haven’t focused at all on my Engineering and Tannery buildings. I’ll deal with those when I hit 100. I have been farming the ore and herbs and selling those. It’s not much gold, but it’s not zero. It’s time like these where I wish was leveling a double-gatherer. Oh well.
Other than feeling a little behind, I’m having an incredible time with this expansion. I saw a lot of it in the beta, but there’s something about it being real now that makes it more special.
I’m trying to go fast, but I’m also taking my time in the sense that I’m completing the quests in each zone before moving on. After all, what’s the point of playing if you’re not going to have fun and enjoy things. So I’m taking in the sights, killing “rares”, taming pets and otherwise working towards level 100.
I should get there tonight or tomorrow, and then real expansion begins.
