Squood nears the finish line

My tauren warrior, Squood, on Steamwheedle Cartel US, dinged level 76 from mostly running Strand of the Ancients this weekend.  He made good use of his alternate Fury spec, and is finally starting to perform respectably in there.  Just a few more levels, and he’ll ding 80 and join my other toons in the gear chase.

To avoid becoming honor-capped, be’s already bought the i-264 PvP cloak for when he tops out.  Wintergrasp is also just around the corner, and on SWC, he should do quite well tagging along in there.

The weekend was about half & half, pretty evenly split between alliance and horde.  Winning on the Call to Arms weekend gives you a pretty hefty chunk of honor and experience.  He should have quite a few gladiator pieces when he dings 80 to get him ready for heroics.

Pretty soon, I’ll move back to my new human pally, Vez, but the upcoming weekend is Isle of Conquest, so I’ll probably do some more for Squood to get him over the finish line.

To finish the weekend, I tanked Violet Hold and Drek’Theron Keep, and got him a few new blues, bringing his armor level up quite a bit.

Warsong Weekend!

This past weekend, Warsong Gultch was the weekly Call to Arms battleground in WoW.  That means a ton of experience for all your low level toons!  About every two and a half wins, I’d gain a level.  A loss would be about 10%.  That’s with no heirloom items on this character.

So, my new human paladin Vez on Skywall US went from level 38 to 46, and gathered up more than 10k honor.  Not bad at all!

The only downside is that you’re not getting any new gear or gold while doing battle.  I’ve got her fishing capped at 450 now, though, and sneak off every once in a while on a fishing expedition, and she’s had over a thousand gold. so far.  A few trips through the dungeon finder, which is near instantaneous for a tank, and she’s back in all current level blue items.

Sweet!

She’s coming up on some of the last prot talents for tanking that will fill out her rotation.  Having a lot of fun bringing this one up from scratch!
