Make me cry. Really. Putting them in instances guarantee's I won't come back. Scarlet Monastary Graveyard? I'll never see you again. Yer not worth it anymore. I mean... I used to think well hey that will be fun...but you have a ton of annoying non-elite mobs that die like paper. I might as well be farming on the world map solo(way more fun).
I feel the same way about the crocodiles and snakes in Wailing Caverns..... WHY ARE THEY THERE. Grr. I guess they exist to make area spells have a reason. Still... bleh.
I thouroghly enjoyed partying with slig last night. We were a cheerfully disorganized ball of frenzied steel, lightning and claws.
I was sad though that the instance was so much below us. I keep thinking of SM as this level 50 area and its only a level 30-40 area. Uldaman is the same but should be longer and I haven't seen it before....ever.
ZulFname looks like crazy fun. Mara looks tedious. Sunken Temple looks scary(thematicly). I plan on visiting all of these soon...very soon. I'm going to these places because I want to see the story and the environment. If I was wanting to be level 70 I would simply xp solo until level 65 or so and pug until 70.
I'm still curious why people do instances. I solo outdoors and avoid the things. I mean really the only reason I ever do instances is someone I know wants to party with me. So we do one about once a week.
Now that I'm getting my party fix with Pox I rarely have a reason to even LOOK at an instance. My shaman went once to WC, and then just now went to SM as a level 45 with a level 49 and level 61. Thats two instances in 45 levels. And I wouldn't have done that if we hadn't wanted to hang out with Slig for a night. Sure you get blues....but the blues are out dated by the end of the week..... We -wanted- to play with Slig, and instances were the best bet for us(elite mobs make parties fun). Also now that I've seen that no one puts my level gear on to market... I'm going to have to instance for -gear- ><.
UNLESS for some reason you are level 40-61 in which case no one ever puts any gear on auction that has any stat other than 'of the whale'.
Both Emerald Dream and Drenden on the Horde side are suffering from a HUGE lack of green agi/str gear. I'm wearing a level 34 chest piece and I can't find an upgrade until level 60+ when I search for mail chest gear. I search daily for mail gear by slot. I usually see 3 items total in the level 38-49 range and 2 of them are of the whale...the third is a 150-300g epic. This is true for helmets, shoulders, chest, axes, hammers.....
Do people just not sell gear at these levels? I'm mind boggled.
Well thats my daily rant. I know wulfa posted, but it was my turn :p.
