I finally did it. I thought it was going to be the warlock, but it ended up being the druid. I kind of blame Darkmoon Faire for this. As I was going through each toon, doing their monthly quests out there, I saw that pretty much all of them had that grisly trophy quest still.
So then I started playing each of them long enough to finish it out and turn it in. Why? I don’t know why. That quest doesn’t even give XP, just rep. It was on toons that barely get played, so why did I care if it stayed in their log another month (or 8)?
But care I did, so they each got a couple of hours to pick up their ears and turn that in. So that next month I can pick it up and do it all over again. Anyway, in doing so I saw that Jendora was actually pretty close to 88 and she should have enough rest XP stored up to get her pretty far. I don’t know if it was the new patch stuff or just Jendora’s natural luck, but she came across no one the times she was leveling. No alliance anywhere.
Somehow Jendora flailed and moonbeamed spammed her way to max level. In between terrible boomkin play she healed some instances, it’s not very exciting though when there are only 2 instance that come up and one is that awful, awful monastery. I didn’t really think it through, though. I thought I would be happy and relieved to finally put away that boomkin spec until I remembered that 90 is just the start of dailies and it will never end.
The AH on Drak is pretty miserable for gear. (I would blame AHmule but I don’t think he dabbles outside the gem market.) There wasn’t a whole lot to pick up for my newest 90.
Jendora has Inscription but I couldn’t even make the staff, unfortunately she didn’t have enough motes. (The dark side to leveling primarily through dungeon finder.) I was able to make a fan and run a quick scenario for a new weapon. She used her JP to buy a wrist piece, then I ran her through her first heroic (Scholomance!) where she promptly picked up an ever better wrist piece. Yay for refunding!
That was basically all I was able to get through last night. Thanks to Daylight Savings it was already 1 am. I’ll have to go through Zarigar’s LW and see what ghetto PvP pieces he can make to fake bump Jendora’s ilevel. It might still be a while before she’s LFR ready, but I’ll be damned if I go boomkining my way through dailies.
(Next week’s post will be about me complaining about doing dailies as a boomkin.)
