When I first installed Cataclysm I had been thinking hard and long on which of my characters I would level first. I chose my Shaman, as the last time I played him as a main was during The Burning Crusade. Plus the changes looked really intriguing. He has been 85 for a while now and my only gear upgrades is located in raids, for all my talent specializations. I quickly come to realize that I was in need of another level 85 if I was to play in arenas, because I didn’t want to spend that much gold on respecs and the glyph dusts.
I didn’t have to think long before deciding which of my other characters to level. It was always going to be my rogue! And for PvP purposes! I’ve never played my rogue solely in a PvP environment and I’m looking forward to it. I had some spare time during Christmas, so I set aside two days and there he was. Level 85 and ready to be geared up with conquest and honor points. The only downside I see now is that I play enhance/resto in our raids, and I have to do one heroic instance each day to get my valor points. Aside from WoW I’m starting my 2nd bachelors degree, first was in psychology and this one in sociology, so I’m a bit strapped for spare time now. When can I farm my honor you ask? Well, I can’t at the moment. And I’d like my girlfriend who I live with not to hate me as well, so I can’t play for 8 hours a day. I’ll get my honor points slowly, but steady. I want to gun for high ratings in my 3v3 team as well, so I got to get some more resilience!
I’m finding Rogues so much fun to play at the moment. I’ve got a PvP mutilate spec and a PvP subtlety spec, and I’m loving both. I’m leaning more towards mutilate at this moment, because I have crappy gear and I’d like to do some damage to my enemies. I’ve also grown very fond of smoke bomb. It’s just so versatile! Offensive or defensive, it does not matter. I find new ways to use it almost daily.
I’m looking forward to learn more!
