Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

Legion Launches

Today's big event seems almost anticlimactic. Much of the changes to basic game mechanics (e.g., the talent system, spells/abilities, transmog) came out over a month ago. Demon Hunters have been available to play since early August. And, of course, the ever increasingly frequent Invasions of six prime targets had everyone in a frenzy of XP and loot. After creating and boosting a pair of characters, Scooter and I started our own DHs, ran all four through the high-level quests prepping us for a counter-invasion of the Broken Isles.
I started a solo mage and leveled her to 52 purely through running Invasions, only completing all six last night after a couple laborious treks because I was missing flight points. I know others have gotten fresh characters from 1 to 100 due to the event.
It's been fun—if a bit frustrating at times due to the vagaries of random number generators. My level 52 still has the level 1 staff she started with, and Scooter's Paladin never got a weapon drop. But I suppose it kept us on the hamster wheel. Frankly, I'll be happy to return to regular questing. It will be up to Scooter whether we return to leveling our low-to-mid level duos, or jump into the Broken Isles stuff—or both. Scooter still hasn't really seen Outland or Northrend, and neither of us has seen Pandaria or Draenor at all.

Scooter proofreads almost all my articles before I post them, for which I am very grateful. However, any mistakes are mine and mine alone (unless otherwise noted). If you are reading this post through RSS or Atom feed—especially more than a couple hours after publication—I encourage you to visit the actual page, as I often make refinements after the fact. The mobile version also loses some of the original character of the piece due to simplified formatting.
