In a nutshell I could just list my order of importance:

Raiding > LFR /Heroics /Scenarios > Dailies > Rep Grind > Professions > Everything else

I wish I could give a clear answer on this challenge, but it really depends on what’s going on IRL. My family and career always come first and then when all of that is taken care of then I find the time to maintain this blog, record my segments and work on my toons. Tuesday nights are raid night for me, and since my casual team only runs one night per week I make sure to devote that entire evening for whatever run we’re on. When our raid time is over, I might hang in mumbles and run some heroics or LFRs with my teammates or even go work on the farm and do dailies.

Amijade has truly become my main for the MoP expansion because she has received the most attention out of all of my characters. Currently, she’s exalted with every faction except for a few of her Tiller friends and of course she’s not quite at cap with the Black Prince. After farming the Bloody Invitation for so long her rep with the Black Prince is maxed until the quest line opens up allowing me to further advance her standings. Other than needing better gear and more raid time, Amijade is my “go-to” toon and for now I consider her my only main. Keep in mind that for years, I’ve always considered all three classes I play as equal and see them all as my three “mains”.

A regular non-raid night would consist of me logging in, tending my farm, doing Tiller dailies (for badges)and maybe repeating a few other daily quest hubs for extra gold. Sometimes, I might run a heroic, a scenario or finish any LFRs I hadn’t completed before the week’s end. When my time with Amijade is over, I usually hop over to one of my alts and begin working on questing, rep grinding or their professions. Sometimes, I’ll pop in vent or mumbles and hang out chatting with friends and guildies, and sometimes I’ll simply crank up a podcast or music and begin plugging away at whatever task is at hand.

My Resto Shaman hit 90 about 2 weeks ago, but sadly I haven’t had time to get her geared and even more shocking to me is that my horde hunter still sits at level 85. This is the first time in the past two expansions where I didn’t level all of my toons together. In BC, WotLK and in Cataclysm, I would level a character until I hit the rested XP, then I would park that character at an inn and then login to another toon and repeat the process. With Mists of Pandaria, I hit the floor running with Amijade and I never looked back until lately. TBH, I’ve had so much fun on my lock it’s hard to play anything else at times; however, I’ve really been missing running on my healer lately. I think it might be because I miss the short que times which spoils you, and because I miss the thrill and pride of healing.

I miss my hunter too, and I plan to start leveling her up once my 20 Days of WoW Blogging challenges ends. With all of the new pets you can tame, I’ve really surprised myself in resisting the temptation to get to cap and collect them all.


Double Agent

With the Convert To Raid Podcast’s big announcement about starting an Alliance guild on Aerie Peak about two weeks ago, I moved one of my old Ally warlocks over to that server, I joined the CtR guild and I have been leveling that toon up as well.  I was planning on eventually levelling up an Ally toon just for the Double Agent title, and lucky for me, I got the achievement anyway because my daughter finally hit 90 on her Draenei Hunter a week ago. I still have an Alliance shaman and hunter collecting dust and I’m even considering moving them there as well. Earthen Ring and the Alea Iacta Est guild are still home for my Horde toons, and as far as I’m concerned I have no intention of changing that fact. AiE is a great guild and a great community and why would I want to abandon that?

What’s my preference? Horde or Alliance? At this time I guess the achievement Double Agent is fitting because I see things I like and things I dislike on both sides. What I’ve come to find is that I really do enjoy seeing how the storylines differ from one faction to the other along with looking at the game as a whole as compared to it’s parts. If you’ve only been faction specific, I’d recommend rolling an alt and seeing things from the other side.

    How great to find another Wow blogger out there – looking forward to reading further posts. I like your idea of 20 days of WoW blogging – I think I’ve covered the first few – and now I have some ideas for more! I’m busy blogging about my first impressions of Pandaria, and soon I’m onto my ‘new’ monk (who has just dinged 84).

    • Heya Legolen,

      I wish I could take credit for this challenge, but it was the brainchild of none other than Saga over at Spellbound – between her and Jodi over at My Daily Minefield I couldn’t help but try it out. It has been fun so far. It’s probably boring to read, but fun for me to write.
