Kinda waiting on 8.1

I’ve been told resto druid is weak and we know feral is on top of being overly complicated.  I haven’t played, other than AV nights, for a few weeks.  There just doesn’t feel like there is much to do this expansion.  The last one I mostly quested, no raiding, barely any world pvp, but the story was so fantastic it kept me busy.  This one, I’m just not sure.  I’ve done a lot of quests and I need to do more but it just feels like there are SO many it’s like god, can I just get these over with already.

That being said, this quest was hilarious.  It was like “The Day Deathwing Came” and very good.

 

I mean, you fight LAND SHARKS!

 

Torb was meh so we went ahead and made him bad.

I’m not clear on why they made changes, or specifically, the changes they made to Torb.  I guess he wasn’t good in comp but in general he felt pretty good.  I liked throwing out armor packs to people, and while pounding on the turret to upgrade it could have been removed, it really feels like they just nerfed a meh character really hard.

Currently setting down a turret puts it at level 2 instantly.  I am not clear on if it has more or less health but it feels like it dies so much faster. It also was given ‘tracer bullets’ so it’s easier to see where it’s coming from, which probably effects how quickly it dies.

Previously if you have your ult up and it started to die, you could pop the ult and much like Winston, it would heal up to something like 800 health and start shooting much quicker.  We lost that, entirely.

We also lost armor packs.  Completely gone.

We have a minor version of the old ult but it’s only for a few seconds and feels pretty lackluster honestly.

And of course the new ult lets you spray the ground with this molten stuff but it’s so limited it’s super easy to avoid, even easier to avoid than Mei’s original ult AOE effect.

So yeah, gg.  Torb is bad.

I love Tol Barad

Tol Barad has been every hour for a while now, but you can use the group finder to get into more by phasing into other servers.  Today I just happened into a battle with actual Horde, and thanks to a fire mage named Galaktik-Icecrown, we destroyed them all.  Man I love this map!

 

 

 

Why did I stop playing the druid btw?

I started trying to gear up Coquette just to get that feral skin, hopefully, and I forget why I stopped playing exactly.  Sure I mean resto druid felt weak at the beginning, and feral felt even weaker, and I lost world defense and open world pvp is the worst (imo) it’s ever been.  But dang.  I can breathe under water with the aquatic form, I can fly with flying form, travel with travel form.  I’m an engineer so I can cook, repair, smelt, glider, zoom, and port to Pandaria, Northrend, or Draenor at any time with wormholes, Nature’s Beacon (the old One with Nature skill) to different continents instantly, and retrieve my mail in the middle of a forest.  I feel so gangster again!
