Ding 50 :D

DING!

No that isn’t the sound of a particularly obnoxious microwave signalling that it has finsihed making food frozen on the outside but viciously magma hot on the inside.

It is instead the sound of me hitting level 50 in WOW.

This isn’t as auspicious as it once would have been;  pre The Burning Crusade hitting level 50 would have meant that you were a mere 10 levels away from reaching the holy grail of end game content.

These days the bar has been raised yet again, Wrath of the Lich King laughed at level 70 and taunted and teased us with new raids and better gear until we the struggled to the summit and hit level 80.

Even so I still think of level 50 as a bit of a landmark if only for the fact that at this point you are now more than 50% of your way through the grind of levelling and that hopefully by this point you have come some way towards mastering your particular class.

Alterac Valley here I come!

Zul Farrak again?? SIGH

12 05 2010

I’m starting to see a little bit of a pattern emerge in my gaming at the moment.

I log on, check my mail, sort out my bits and bobs at the auction house, visit the banker to drop things off and then go to the dungeon finder.

This probably doesn’t sound very different to what a lot of other players do, however they are probably looking at completing a random dungeon to get their daily fix of satchel of helpful goods, not for me though.

I’m looking for Zul Farrak… again.

I stopped counting how many times I had completed Zul Farrak when I reached 20, sure the xp and the money and cloth are handy but should I really have to suffer through ZF over and over again?

The obvious answer is no but I have a goal in mind.

You see I was lucky enough to grab Jang’thraze the Protector on my first run through and it has been my one hander for when I need a shield ever since.

Now of course Jang’thraze isn’t a normal one handed sword you can combine it with Sang’thraze the Deflector to make the two handed epic sword Sul’thraze the Lasher which not only is epic and looks cool but is actually a pretty good 2 hander for a ret pally like myself.

This is where the problem comes in, the blasted thing won’t drop. In all of my subsequent runs it has dropped once and I was out rolled. I am running Zul Farrak 2 or 3 times a night and just can’t get my grubby mits on it.

I know I know I could wait and get Ice Barbed Spear instead but I want my sword GRRRR

If I never see another Sandfury Troll ever again I will die a happy man, as long as I have my epic 2 hander of course 🙂
