My hunter was, once upon a time, my most beloved character. She was even my raiding main for most of BC, only being shelved when the hunter glut made it almost impossible to find a home post guild-asplode.
I took a lot of pride in learning how to play, thanks to my patient mentor, Olgas. And now I have to…relearn how to play. Sans mentor, at least for the BM spec. Meep!
Mere minutes after dinging, I was invited to the in-progress guild run of Naxx25. I had remembered to train my 80 skills (Josh didn’t-ha!), but was for the most part unenchanted, ungemmed, scrub hunter with a pet who was…still level 78? Fuck. BoA gear to transfer XP bonus to pets, too, imo.
Of course, now she is a scrub hunter with a few epics, so this evening will be dedicated to gemming, enchanting, gear-buying and…running ToC into the ground. Oh, and leveling my pet. Silly devilsaur. THEN I’ll have to turn around and level my wolf because I hate the Northrend wolf models.
I also managed to create loot drama by…trying to be nice. Oops? My recommendation is this: don’t do “limitless loot” runs when you have several alts looking for gear plus pugs in a raid. Someone is going to have hot dice, and then everyone else will, if not be butthurt, at least be making sad faces as they watch a lot of gear go to a rogue who is barely beating said scrub hunter in DPS. Seriously, I’m 3% from hit cap with a low level pet in a sub par DPS spec and I’M ON YOUR HEELS DPS-WISE WTF GO REROLL.
We’ll ingore the part where I ran out of ammo halfway through the last boss and went melee on Loatheb.
Yeah. So. Error in loot rules on our part (Andy, honey, WHY DID YOU NOT USE OUR NORMAL RULES) that will…not be repeated.
Now I need to go…play with spreadsheets.
