That was quick, as i said before, with allied races the goal is to reach 110 quickly, so i take shortcuts and Draenor have a lot of them, collecting treasure and finishing the bonus objectives while using experience potion means fast leveling, much faster than i thought it will be.
I didn’t count how many quests i did in Draenor, i guess less than 20 if i didn’t count the intro quests, but i’m going back there later, for the garrison, farming raids and grinding reputation with one faction to get transmog set.
Lightforged paladin reached level 90, from 80 to 90 i did all leveling in Pandaria, did most quests of Jade forest, did all quests of Valley of Four Winds including Half Hill market and farm, all the quests of Krasarang wilds, a zone i almost forgot, 2 quests in Veiled Stair, 5 quests in Kun-Lai Summit.
To stay there more, i level mining while doing quests, also i spent time in the best place on all Azeroth: Halfhill Market, there i leveled cooking, did some daily quests, wished again there some real life place like that so i can live there.
Now i have to go to the “savage” land and start a garrison for some reason, but i have to admit, Draenor quests are one of the best in the game, the problem with Warlords of Draenor was always what comes after questing? not much, then Blizzard solved that with Legion.
In Westfall i know the end quest will burn Sentinel Hill, so i don’t do it, one burned Sentinel Hill is enough, so why repeat it on alts? now i’m in Jade forest i know what’s going to happen, should i go with it and allow the game to make me feel guilty again? or skip some quests, let the Jade Forest in peace? what do you think?
And now to the really important stuff, i hear Pandaren repeat: family, friends, food, these are what matters most, so let’s talk about game food in real life, Pandaren food vendors have many items, these are some of them:
dried peach, i love dried fruits, dried apricot is the best, it is something i buy every month, my breakfast is usually nuts and dried fruits, but i never tried dried peaches, i’ll see if i can find them in a local store.
Yak cheese Curds, i could not find something like this item, but there is yak cheese, and it seems many online stores sell it, it is expansive, and many stores sell it as dog food! to get the real thing i need to visit Nepal or Tibet.
Pounded Rice Cake, if you can find Glutinous rice in your town or city, then you can make rice cake, many Asian countries have a variety of rice cakes, i tried some of south indian ones, also ate so much dosa, rice bread.
Also i tried once Mochi, which is a japanese rice cake.
Red Bean Bun, this is made from red bean paste, i only ate it once, a local japanese restaurant used to make Anpan, soft bread with bean paste, i loved it and alas the local restaurant stopped making them.
It baffles me when some people talk about how they travel to far places and eat the same food they eat in their homes, what is the point of traveling if you did that?
I love to read and try all kind of cuisine form all kind of cultures, i have 2 rules, no alcohol, and no watermelons! don’t ask, i just can’t eat watermelon, it feels like sugary sponge, other than that i’ll try anything.
And it seems i care too much about food! i’ll stop here before i rant so much and turn this blog into food blog 😀
After making a Lightforged Draenei (paladin), i focused on leveling him to reach Pandaria as fast as possible, usually i prefer to slow down while leveling but for the Allied races the goal is to reach level 110 and get the heritage armor.
But Pandaria is different, i want to slowdown in Pandaria because i love this place, yesterday i reached level 80 in Sholazar Basin and it was night, dropped any quests i have except the one which tells me to choose between Cataclysum or Pandaria, went to Stormwind and logged out.
I wanted to reach Pandaria in the morning so the time in the game will be in the day not in the night! seems silly but i prefer the sun and the day in WoW and in real life, it just feels … er .. happier.
So here is my Paladin, with a new beard, in Pandaria.
So … tell me, did you level one of the allied races? i saw many players with heritage armor, but i think most of them are Void Elves, i saw few Nightborne in Dalaran.
It’s a post about few things, none of them about a happy man with flags.
Scaling, so far so good, that’s basically it, i made a Lightforged paladin, called him Fihar, took him to Darkshore, while questing in the zone i’ll join few dungeons, so i finished quests in Darkshore, went to Ashenvale and did like 80% of the quests and i reached level 40, i was waiting for this because i wanted to reach Felwood which is full of demons, and Lightdforged have a racial ability gives them 20% more experience when they kill demons.
Mobs takes more time to kill, they do some damage! some of them stun, curse, debuff, silence .. etc, many of these abilities i never saw before, because mobs have no time to show off before.
As for dungeons, gone the days when a tank can pull the whole dungeon, go make a cup of tea, open the tin box to take some biscuits, comes back to play with one hand while the other is busy with tea!
Dungeons are slower for sure, and some bosses do have abilities! i never saw a boss in Scarlet Halls kill a player before, it happened yesterday … to me! i wasn’t even mad, i said “well this is a first”, it was amusing.
Paladin class, to be honest i’m not having fun playing paladin, i remember playing Retribution Paladin in Warlords and it was fun to play, with all the procs flashing in the screen, now the class feels slow, i tell myself to reach Legion and maybe the artifact weapons will add some fun.
LFR is hard, while playing my main i rarely saw LFR group wipe, people know what they should do, now? i joined LFR many times with my boosted character (horde side) and i never finished one LFR wing, wiping once or twice is ok, but keep doing that over and over? i don’t know what’s going on, is it new players? or player who never joined LFR before and they are trying that now? i gave up on LFR for now, focus on leveling allied races instead.
T’paartos! T’paartos is our new hero, we all love T’paartos, if you don’t love T’paartos then T’paartos will just keep being kind to you, because T’paartos is kind, T’paartos is brave, T’paartos is humble, T’paartos hate snakes!
This screenshot is for Ruumbo, a talking totem in Felwood, and a lighthearted quest giver for a depressing zone, Felwood is depressing, the atmosphere is sick green in the whole zone, so it is nice to see Ruumbo who demand justice and honey, this should be the logo of all justice departments in every country, ruumbo face with a honey jar.
The fun quests continue with Impsy the imp, you capture him in a bag and he have no love for nice things, we all know imps are terrified of rainbow! so you get a quest to terrify imps with rainbow power!
How do my brain tells me i’m thinking too much about WoW? by combining two things i really hate in one dream: school and PVP!
The dream was mild, nothing serious happens, i’m just going back home from school while trying to avoid “the other faction” who curiously act like NPCs in WoW, but i walked too close to one of them and i was “tagged” for PVP, one of them tried to “bully” me while i have a staff (just a stick, my brain didn’t bother to transmog it to something fancy!) … i woke up, this was too weird.
Last day of the school was decades ago, i think and write about education system since i was 16, bullying was not the reason because that rarely happened in my school days, it was just the school itself, it felt like a prison to me, even when i was 10 years old i’ll ask myself: why we are in the school in this beautiful day while we could learn real things in real life?
As for PVP, well i don’t like it, and BfA already making people have a repeated talk about factions, it gets really ugly sometimes, so i started reading comments less.
I rarely have any dreams and when i do i know something is wrong, usually i’m not having enough sleep, so in the list of things to do: sleep more 🙂
