We have stocked away enough gold for Beowulfa's mount. The stuff I send her has sold well and we're looking good. She merrily defends HER flag, and nightly reminds me that I don't know how to play a hunter so please don't comment on what spell she should cast next. Watching her makes me really proud. She's ice trapping rogues and killing enemy flag runners with ease. An example:
Beowulfa is chasing two enemy runners as they sprint towards her flag. She had been out in the middle and they are running up the 'tunnel'(that main corridor that runs from your flag directly out the front of your base).
Dammerung: Babe that rogue just grabbed the flag you should shoot him.
Dammerung: Babe that rogue is about to sap you and you should focus on him not that hunter.
Beowulfa: Babe that rogue is an icicle now.
Beowulfa: And now the hunter is dead, his pet is banished, and Susan has just been handed a roguecicle as a treat.
Beowulfa: So go away now and play with yer shammy cus yer no hunter!
She goes back to snarling at the screen and the alliance toons there on.
I'm very happy that she enjoys pvp this much. I had always been told hunters were not good in PVP, so I passed this "truism" on to her and she avoided it as a result. Another advantage of her loving pvp is it has given Zujoo a chance to play catch up. He's level 18 now and might be level 20 tonight if things go right.
Which brings me to "Why have I dropped my shaman for now"?
This is a thorny question for me. I don't really have an answer. What I envisioned my shaman as, would be a instant cast shock blaster with some melee abilities. Well he certainly is that, however there is something intangibly wrong with how he plays for me. I mean he works, I'm not saying Shamans suck or Shamans are too hard to level or anything like that. Shamans are awesome. I just feel frustrated when I play one. And I'm not sure why, which frustrates me more.
So on a whim, I rolled a warlock. I previously stated that rpishly I have a hard time with warlocks. And I'm still working this out. I would love to see someone present an rp argument for how a warlock could possibly be a 'good' guy. But rpish reasons aside, the warlock plays EXACTLY like I want. In roughly 9 hours play time?(this is an estimate that will be fixed once I log in again and type /played) I made it to level 18. This is about twice as fast as my Shaman mostly because I knew where the quests were... but the entire time I was saying things like: DID YOU SEE THAT! OOO I can't believe I did that! WHEEE! WHOOO! etc.
Sooooo Zujoo is my new main for now. He has +24 shadow damage and is wearing what looks like a pretty white blouse and a lovely pink skirt. Wow my Orc Warlock is a manly man. /sigh The things you do for +shadow damage.
My squimp caster thing is named belmont and my purple VW bug is named uhm I don't know... I just send him out there to die for me.
Well thats it for now.
P.S. Dammerung is still married to Beowulfa don't worry that won't change. Zujoo is married to Beowulfa's sister, a younger Orc Warlock named Zarahlinda. She is also hot.
