My 2nd priest is now on BR, and has already netted me 2k Gold in a GDKP 4 boss ICC
So I now have 2 somewhat ok geared Priests on one realm, and lots’s of stuff to potentially do – and really only one goal.
I wanna see the Lich king.
Pugchecker has me with an Average Item Level of 260.24
Wow Heroes ( Go to the Realm Tab, and use the filter) had me at 69th on server on my main , and 22nd Alliance for gear ( but that was a few peoples names not recently refreshed, and I don’t want to refresh them all.
Be Imba has my highest PVE score at 725.42
Warcrafter has my Gear Score at 2124
Either way – no matter what measurement you use I’m not really up there – but I’m doing ok, considering I have not been in a raiding guild obtaining gear – and I’m happy where I am at – just need tweaking, and 2 upgrade tokens for my Tier . I’ve seen 10/12 10’s and 25’s ICC, done some, and working on some hardmodes, ( and not just hard mode loot boat)
Everything I’m wearing ( except the Wand which came from my now 2 week regular 10’s) has been Random Pugs /GDKPs / crafted and Badges.
I mean I ho-ed my self out as heals when it was necessary to get inital ICC runs and they were more likely to take a not as geared/experienced healer. ( amazing how prepared to change your play style when your goal is big enough) Ran POS 22 times for a trinket, Ran TOC 25 as often as possible for Reign –
I’ve got drive when I want something bad enough.
Worked on my gear – made sure I did the Random Daily for badges, had some luck in pugs, enough gold in GDKP’s all to keep my gear at a level I would still be proud to wear if I app’d to a raiding guild – and not need gearing up so I can could see the Lich King.
But I didn’t app – and realistically I won’t. I don’t have to.
It sounds rather unsociable. But I am really liking the flexibility. Sometimes I have to wait to get a run I want, but ICC 10/25, Toc, Togc, Ulduar achievement runs, Naxx undying, The weekly, Ony, VOA ( in the rare hours we have WG) are all accessable, and my gear/experience means I usually can get what I want – ( one day I will do Undying ) apparently opportunity is even better on Horde side.
Though what I do miss – is the downtime hours of a raiding guild when people always want to do other stuff. Hence the need for a grind for something do to / aim for / Tanking project
I’ve decided My next mindless grind will be 100, 000 Honorable Kills. The reward is the title reward ‘Of the Alliance. ‘ It still will take a while, and it will give me something to work on. Now I don’t need to worry about rep and honor = badges = more gold
I’m currently at 61638/100,000 and considering I got my 50,000 in December last year 11638 kills in 5 months – Let’s just say – I have a really long way to go.
I will probably end up doing a Heap of AV for it. I will see how hard it is to make decent progress – probably end up healing – gets me closer to the action and more kills.
I guess what’s more of a concern is that I need a grind to stay interested.
I’ve started playing Supreme Commander because I loved Total annihilation, and I have devoured Plants V Zombies on my Iphone, and on my PC. I guess when you want to hear ‘Braiiinnzzzzz’ instead of ” Charrrrggggge” means I might be clutching at straws to stay engaged.
