What are you doing while waiting for the xpac?

Unread post by Castile » Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:12 am

This thought came up as I was listening to a podcast and they were discussing what ppl doing in-game now. One of them said he wanted to lvl a shaman but the other guys said whats the point when you get free 90? Why lvl alts at all? Which got me thinking....all I'm doing atm is either lvling alts to 90 and dressing them up in xmog or doing lfr for my mains legendary cloak (yes im lazy ok!).

What are you all doing?

Do you not see the point in lvling alts or do you enjoy that?

Are you still raiding and therefore for lots to do still there?

Since I quit raiding/guild emploded I lvl my alts to 90 and have made a few new ones with my fiance with RAF. I have multiples of classes but I enjoy the satisfaction of lvling a toon to 90 myself. Just for those that are interested I'm currently at 8 lvl 90's (2x hunter, 2x druid, shaman, warrior, priest, mage) and 5 85+ (paladin, monk, rogue, DK and priest). My warlock is the only class not at 85 (about 58ish) but ill get to her :)

I've been mostly playing alts! I fell in love with a paladin I created when I decided to try going Prot and tanking on her...she went from a character created on a whim to one that I'm approaching 80 with and I'm loving her a lot, so that's been most of my time lately.

I'm also doing solo mount runs again, grinding rep/drops I didn't get around to, and trying to organize my bags in preparation for a new expansion (even though it's still a ways away).

My main goal right now though (because it's on a time limit) is to run the Pandaria LFRs for transmog pieces I like. Once a new expansion's out it'll be next to impossible to queue for them anymore, and there's quite a few weapons and gear pieces that have unique appearances from LFR that I want to have.

I'm doing all the things I missed from MoP like getting the mounts I missed and some of the Cata ones too. Just started doing the Timeless Isles stuff and I'm not even half way done with the Black prince quests XD Lots to do!

Same thing I always do: level a bajillion alts, do pet battles, transmog runs, and camp rares :) I also have two guilds to level now, which is a new experience for me.

I am kinda pushing to get all my MoP reps to exalted before WoD. By growing veggies. Its a process. A slow one.

Alt leveling, working on challenge modes like "no damage" or "no deaths".
I have my Art on DA that I am focusing on more, getting my overly long list of "To draw" done...and creating more ><;
I also have some RL things things that I am dealing with. Trying to find/afford some pre-school for my daughter, who is turning 4 yrs in April. Also bugging my BF for a 2nd kid ^^ I really love being a Mom. Best feeling ever! (besides, some people want to have their own soccer team, I want my own raid group ^^ j/k)

At this stage of the expansion, I always seem to find myself getting distracted by alts, even though I still have plenty I want to do on my main. Having been recently connected to another realm, so I can have more alts for my main's horde doesn't help :)

My main activity is still raiding, I enjoy it even if we're just clearing the same old content for months.

Other than that my main activities/goals are:
1) Saving up as much gold as I can. I don't like starting out an xpac without a good supply of money.
2) Running old content for transmogs, toys and mounts. My unrealistic goal is to hit 250 mounts by the time WoD drops.
3) Finishing up the last of my rep grinds. Just have to hit exalted with Booty Bay and I'll be exalted with all currently available PVE reps.

Mostly trying to get a couple of farmable pets I'm missing, and a few more than I have as rares but really want better breeds for. The whole breeds thing becomes pure poison when you spend many months just getting one pet from a boss, only to then realize that getting the breed you want could take five, six times longer again. Really kills the joy.

Also, farming for some mounts I'm missing that I can two-person or solo at this level.

BusybusybusyBUSY~!!

Yeah, seriously :P My bucket list is quite long...
Let's see, where to start:

1. Completion wrap-up list:
- lvl-cap my lockie altie (lvl70 now)
- get all my lvl90 alts (6, incl the lockie) through all of LFRs (progress varies from just SoO4 missing to not even 90 yet) for the green stripe on armory
- on my main - finish off Gary on Flex for the green stripe and clear normal (9/14) for the wolf mount.

2. Timeless stuff: on my main
- finish the rep grind (revered now)
- get coins for rep mount+pet (~80k/150k now) (while killing rares to drop a few more pets I'm missing)
- before new season: get the out-of-TI bloody coins generator item (17/50 now)
- when new season hits - grind for bloody coins in BGs while progressing towards the achis.

3. Pet battles
- do that smelly "The longest day" poop
- take up the celestial tourney and get all the baby celestials
- finish collecting raid and timeless drop pets

4. Other thingies I guess I don't have to do before WoD hits, but if I happen to have time...
- Giants: grind up the bone-white raptor (and one more, I swear I don't have all of the eggy 3 yet)
- Brawlers: get someone to do "Haters gonna hate" for me, so I can stop withholding on the dino and progress further, as far as I can.
- check out that proving grounds, and for real 8-)
- finish up quest/exploration achis (looking at you, Shado-pan rep dailies and IoT)
- panda dungeons achis
- lvlup a few more alts, namely my panda and gobo hunters and mooo-bearcat. Maybe I'll make myself a monk, eventually, but I'd rather wait for after-MoP-nostalgia with that :P

Phew... I better get down to work :D

Not a lot. I rarely log in. When I do, I'll try to get achievements, and I'd really like to get the black raptor mount but those eggs just never drop for me. I still have only gotten one and I have like 5000 bones. With my luck, I'll get an egg and it will hatch into another red one. I hate farming for things.

Levelling my final 2 tank classes for my Youtube channel I run as a source for Tanking info.

So working on my Monk atm (level 63) and then going to polish off levelling my warrior (87), which will mean heading into Warlords, I'll have all 5 tanks ready to rock for guides n' shizzle.

Raiding wise, still trying to kill Garrosh (55 wipes and counting!) on normal mode :(

I'm one of those people who cannot jump right into a class without having played it first. Tried it on various betas and just got confused as heck with all the spells and abilities. I was frustrated and confused as to what rotation to use, what abilities were not at all useful, what were critical and so on. Yeah, you can read a guide, but I would much rather learn the spells slowly and experience that trial and error while leveling.

So I'm still leveling toons. I'm on the last range class right now, my balance druid. She's about 57, and I plan on finishing her within a month at the latest. After her, I am not sure really what I am going to do at all. I've got the following 90s: bm hunter (A), ele shaman (A), shadow priest, ele shaman (H), BM hunter (H), mage (and another at 54 while I was testing out ice, the 90 had been leveled as fire), demon lock.

Thinking I might next level an alt spec class, like enhance shaman, destro lock, etc. Not really sure yet. I really dislike playing melee, but I might talk myself into leveling one instead. I'll keep leveling alts till the expac, randomly switching to one of my 90s to do some LFR for gear upgrades and or do old world raid accomplishments etc, but it is not a priority.

Mostly I am NOT going to use the free 90 to make something I don't already know. I am planning on using it to make a alt hunter or shaman on a new server, level that toon and then have them be my money maker for any characters that I make over there. As I've played mostly PvE, I am thinking I might make my free 90 on an RP realm to give them a try-as I keep trying the RP realms and can't get past the disgust I feel for Goldshire to go out and try the rest of the world.

But then again I may get some random idea in my head and start trying to heal... heh, heh... not likely.

Lots and lots of LFR, for me. Gearing up my feral druid. I'm also working on leveling a warlock, monk and hunter- though I hope to use my free boost to 90 on said hunter! Doing my typical WoW stuff really. Farming mounts, gearing up, getting mog sets, etc.

(8) Level more pets..only have 222 max level pets!
(9) There is one more season of PVP this xpac so get those two achievements.
(10) Keep farming, Onyxia mount, kael mount and the firelands one (which i started soloing last week).
