Once again the Sha of Anger gives me gold.
And some more gold as a consolation prize.
I give you a coin to get coins… I think I’m getting short changed here.
I spend most of that fight under his Mind Control.
Doing stupid things, I might add. Stupid things such as:
Switching my armor spell to Frost Armor. While the haste is nice, I miss the mastery.
Casting Frost Nova when attacked by a squad of Ires. And then JUST STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM. Because rooting an enemy and staying in melee range is what all the cool MCed kids do.
While I encounter some slowing in 25-man raids, I can generally still move around. In a 40-man? I’ve given up on even trying to be on the meter.
Instead, I focus on the MCed people in between moments of appreciating my WoW tableau.
I figure their DPS on the boss will be better than mine and if I can spare someone the frustration of getting fucked out of loot it’s a good feeling.
After my disappointment of Sha, I moved in to Kara for the 30 seconds it now takes me to be disappointed at not getting my mount.
I will say since reaching 90 and getting a bit of gear, I can go from front door to swearing in guild chat in record time. I don’t even bother popping CDs.
I do have a piece of good news!
Finally, I was able to log on long enough to do more than pick my nose while looking at a laundry list of activities that I didn’t have time for.
Got a few dailies done and got enough VP to get my Static-Caster’s Medallion from the Dominance Offensive.
Now, it’s off to save up enough VP to upgrade the bugger.
I’m going to upgrade it? Not buy new gear?
Most of the gear I have will be replaced by a raid drop – if we ever, ya know, actually raid. The few remaining pieces will be Dominance Offensive VP gear.
It looks like a new caster trinket was data mined for somewhere in 5.2.
But I’ll never see it – at least not while it’s relevant.
(Just to put it in perspective, we haven’t downed normal Elegon yet. We’re 4/6 in MSV and that’s it. I don’t know if we’ll finish MSV before the patch.)
So my Static-Caster’s Medallion and Relic of Yu’lon are probably the best I’ll have until… oh, I don’t know, maybe T16 or so.
With the upgrade vendor going away in 5.2, it’s my last shot at upgrading that slot for a very, very long time.
All the other VP pieces I’m looking at will still be available in 5.2, and I hear rumors that the costs will even be reduced.
Hopefully, we’ll get a 2-week warning or so before the patch drops. If I can manage to cap VP for once, I think I’ll be OK.
What are your thoughts on the upgrade vendor being removed? Was it even a good idea to put it in in the first place?
