That New Content Feeling

Patch 4.3 couldn’t have come at a better time. With NaNoWriMo over and done with on Tuesday and my most recent book review written and published (that’s important because it took me a few hours to get right), I logged into my Priest happily to play around with void storage and do a few of the new 5 mans with the manface. Aren’t they great? While I was waiting, I got myself a Glyph of Shadow, which is awesome, and played around on my new horse. I was accused in guild of liking boys because I like the Tyrael’s Charger but I of course slapped that down with a great big, “Yes, I do like boys, and why does it matter?” And then continued to enjoy my pony.

The new instances gave me a distinctly familiar feeling. I’m awful at remembering the names because it has been so many months, but the first instance reminded me of one of the mid-level instances in Rift, the last part reminded me of the desert zone, and the third one reminded me of one of the later Rift instances. No, not being all, “They clearly copied Rift!” Just an observation. I loved them. They’re new content with new gear and the storyline is interesting. What’s not to love? Plus that second one has really made me appreciate Night Elf Shadow Priests…

And something seems a little off about Tyrande…

And how could I not include this one? Possibly my favourite of the new bosses and it looks freaking cool.

We did a few with the same Rogue and healer who we met in a pug and were both competent and friendly and that’s a pretty rare event. It’s always nice when you do get those kinds of pugs. I may have awwwed a little when the healer left with, “Nice to meet you.” I thought that was a little adorable.

I got myself a new wand, finally netting myself Cataclysmically Epic after a year.. though it did put my achievement points back into the 5s! And my first pair of dropped non-blue shoulders, and a helm, 2 rings, an offhand, and the tier 12 chest, getting me upto 369 ilvl from 361. I’ll be good for the raid finder in no time! Then today I picked up the staff from the last instance so I can finally use Anathema *squee* (and knock my ilvl upto 370 but that’s less important, right?). *strokes the pretty*

After, we ran through Black Temple with a friend and another guildy (the non-douchey variety, hooray), not only did I gain about 1,000 gold from that run but it was fun. We just finished a little later than hoped but oh well. I transmogged my gear fully and went off to bed.

I am absolutely in love with this set. I never got the chance to wear tier 4 when it was current because I was a Tailoring Shadow Priest *grumbles* and for those of you who weren’t around in Burning Crusade, the Shadoweave set (shoulders, chest, and boots) you made with tailoring was best in slot until tier 6. Obviously that’s just the shoulders but I do also have the robe in void storage.

How are you enjoying the new content? Or are you perhaps disappointed thus far?

  1. Great outfit, I love it! On all the ones that I’ve done so far, I haven’t been able to find something essential like matching gloves or shoulders (and I hate that all shoulders are so damned huge!).

    1. Thanks! And I knoww it’s so annoying. I squeeled when I remembered tier 4 for this set! Best thing for that though is definitely WoW Model Viewer. I need to have a fiddle around in there sometime when I get time to.

  2. I’m really liking the new content, since reading the WoW novels and really taking in the stories behind characters, it’s great to head back and go through a dungeon with Illidan, and help Thrall and the Aspects recover the Dragon Soul to prevent the end of the World! (of Warcraft…)

    The raid is good fun too! Looking forward to going through that on heroic soon!

    Transmog is possibly more important to most players than the raid content, I mean, what good is all-powerful gear if you don’t *look* fabulous?! :D

    1. Ooh I haven’t tried the raid yet! My ilvl is too low on all three 85s so I’m getting my Priest geared and we’ll go through then I’ll start on my Death Knight.

      And ha too right! ;)

  3. OMG! Please tell me what you’re wearing for your Transmog set? my favorite color is purple, and I have yet to find a good set that I like. Your outfit is so pretty! /jealous.
