I am now a progression raiding Hunter.
Things are going great in DiP on Zul’jin and playing a Hunter could not be more fun. I do miss the challenges of playing kitty with running all over the place, multi bleeding stuff, Brez’ing in a pinch, etc. I do feel however that Hunter is a fun class to play as well, though min/max is a little less challenging, which after playing WoW since BC and being over 40 years old is just fine by me.
Raiding 2 nights a week is a lot more manageable than 3, gives me more time for the family and staying in shape, and being part of a great guild means progression continues to happen at a reasonable pace. Last night we finally downed Lei Shen and received the Ahead of the Curve: Lei Shen Achievement. Considering the difficulty of maintaining a 25 man raiding roster and the constant rotation of geared and experienced players combined with the 6 hours per week playtime progression is very rewarding.
With my new focus on my hunter I won’t have much to post on here that is Druid centric as often but I don’t have plans to change the site since my overall lack of time wouldn’t necessarily allow me to become a large part of the Hunter community anyway. I will continue to post observations in all area’s of WoW, the odd and end tips here in there, and cover patches and expansions information I find helpful or interesting.
Now that my druid is effectively my alt, I am going to start tanking LFR, 5 mans, and hopefully some alt or pug runs.Unfortunately I need to switch up my gear, chants, gems, trinkets. Following is the list of gear to get everything up above 502 ilvl without stepping one foot in normal ToT.
Head – Lightning-Eye Hood – Jin
Chest – Rockfall Ribwraps -Tortos
Wrist – Bindings of Multiplicative Strikes – Horridon
Hands – Grips of the Haunted Forest – Council
Waist – Featherflight Belt – Ji-Kun
Finger – Seal of the Shado-Pan Assault – Friendly rep with assault
Trinkets – Vicious Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault and Renataki’s Soul Charm – Jin
- I moved to a higher population server (Zul’Jin), one that has a strong and large raiding community. Holy crap, I have been missing out, constant opportunities to run current content on alts and pug old achievements. I LOVE that I moved! I will miss Drenden and will definitely miss Requiem.
- I am now a recruit for Drunk In Public. 25 man Horde 2 night a week raiding guild. Great people, Great Guild, Hoping for the best.
- If I am accepted as a permanent member of the raiding team I will be raiding with my Hunter Jzuigõng. No worries, I still plan on playing quite a bit a Jacemora as well, no plans on changing my blog to a hunter blog.
- My time continues to be limited, lots of work and family around playing, so posting has fallen off. To be honest all the new content and changes that Blizzard keeps tossing our way is overwhelming and it’s just so much to blog about I don’t know how to find the time.
Once (if) Drunk In Public becomes my confirmed permanent home I will post again and add thoughts on current raid bosses, etc, from both a hunter and feral standpoint.
I am currently running a DOC build on Jace, I like the rotation and I feel that once it is mastered it does pretty darn good on the meters.
No time to post, playing WOW, doing the thing in the mists… fun stuff… will post some tidbits soon.
