It seems like I have very little to write about this week. Lat night Mrs. Ardwulf and I (she got home from school early) played our paired Druids, finishing up the stuff in Redridge mountains and moving on the the Charred Vale in Stonetalon, a merciless grind of collection quests with low drop rates if ever there was one. An hour and a half of that and we were finally finished and tired of it.
I will be honest: I despise the Druid as a tanking class, which is the role I’ve found myself in here. I like the class conceptually, and my forced respec seemed to help a little, but I just hate sitting there with three mobs beating on me, not generating any rage, and with a glacially slow attack. Cat form is cool, but at level 27 my attack options are extremely limited. Nor do I seem to have sufficient mana to operate as a ranged DPS class. It’s possible that all of this changes as you advance and/or with the proper spec, but right now I am finding it maddeningly frustrating.
Right now the Mrs. and I have four sets of paired characters: the Druids (both of whom are now level 27,) Warrior/Rogue (at level ,) Hunter/Priest (level 20,) and Mage/Warrior (my Mage at level 11, her Warrior at level 12.) I want to push the lead characters ahead, but I also want to play some of the other pairs, all of which I will be less frustrated by.
