Like I mentioned quite a number of times before, I am feeling the pre-Cataclysm blues big time. I’m pretty fed up with leveling alts even though I only have 3 80s, all in ICC25 gear. Not full but BiS as much as possible. I haven’t stepped in this raid for about 2 weeks now and I can’t say I miss it at all. I really don’t know where I had the stamina to take all 3 in one week to the place, in both 10 and 25 man versions but it’s gotten the best of me. So that’s that. I will only join if it’s a raid that will be downing the LK and they feel confident enough to pull my sorry ass through the fight. I know’em all in theory but I’ve had precious little practice on Arthas so that might be a bummer. Of course, there’s always the option of buying my way to a LK kill, the prices on my server vary from about 20K for a 10 man kill (in which I understand you do nothing but go in and pull to die – a fair thing, I say. If I need a boost to the kill there’s no way for the guild doing the boosting to trust me that I’m not going to drop a defile in their midst).
I have leveled a slew of characters to the mid-30s at least to get a feel for the class (currently Rogue – 52, Warrior-35, Paladin – 33, Druid – 35, Hunter – 37, Mage – 31). Add that to the Shaman, DK and Warlock at 80 and you get a lot of playtime. And the worst part of it all is that they are all on the same server, which leaves little room for the Worgen and Goblin I intend to try my hand on when Cata launches. Only one spot and only one class I haven’t ever played past 11: Priest. I really like the class, probably because it is the archetype of the healer and I always wanted one that I could trust.
Yes, I know that shamans can heal. I was resto for all my BC life and the beginning of Wrath but maybe because of the limited gear I had and the lack of tool optimization (or at least that’s what I thought) early on led me down the Elemental path and I’m sticking to it. I want a disco priest. Dipping too low thar? Have a bubble! Oh, alright, lazers incoming, brace for the hit, Spock!
Aaanyway, the thought that popped in my mind was to transfer a char on another server. But which one should it be? My gut feeling is that I should transfer my Shaman, to a PvE realm but that would have me risk cutting him off the gold supply – not that I’m good with gold, on the contrary. My professions on the shaman are Enchanting and Skinning, which is a remnant of LW + Skinning I originally went with. I kept Skinning because of the extra crit and because I have a LW friend that can craft stuff for me if I get him the mats. If I transfer him away then I won’t have my friends to level with. No bonus points for that!
My Lock will be staying on the realm it’s on because that’s where my PvP team members are. Period.
My DK… I barely play her anyways nowadays and I’m afraid that if I were to transfer her away it would mean the end of things. She has Mining + Jewelcrafting as professions and could potentially mean she would be able to support herself but I only have a handful of JC patterns I know because by the time I reached 450 I was fed up with everything JC related and only logged to do the quests when I was really bored. Really bored. Now that having been said, is it worth transferring a lowly alt to a new server? One that I don’t really know if I will play at all? I don’t think so.
What to do?
