My Level 80 (And Beyond!) Goals
Now that I’ve hit 80 (eeeee!) there are many a-thing that I want to accomplish to become a more proficient and all-around kick-ass player. Because, you see, I still don’t understand a whole slew of things that most people who plays WoW, or MMOs in general, already know. So, I”m gonna make a fun little list-icle (as I do) about my in-game goals.
1. I need to figure out how to be a good Guild member
So, I’ve been in a guild since roughly Level 50 or so, but because I wasn’t at 80, I didn’t really have a lot of contact with them. I mean, I was technically invited to it because Nick asked them to invite me, and while they are super nice, I was super intimidated by all of them and just kind of quested and did my thing.
But last night, Nick and I did Halls of Reflection and had AWFUL group members (I was healing and there was another pally doing DPS, and he refused to target single baddies– he only wanted to hit the things that would do damage to lots of people at a time and apparently his DPS score was hilarious.) so a couple of our guild members came to the dungeon (instance? They’re the same thing right?) and I got to play with them finally! And then they wanted to do some Heroics with me, but I had to go because my ex-roommate came over to hang out…lol.
Aaaanyway, I need to figure out what I need to do to be considered a great guild member–I have a really good role model in Nick, which is great, but apparently there are things like a guild bank….do I need to put things in it? Or contribute money to it? If there’s, like, a handy-dandy ‘How to be a Good Guildie Guide’ I’d love to know about it….
Yeah, I don’t have any of those yet. And I know that they’re a really important part of raids and heroics and such, so I need them.
And I asked Nick about it, but he said that he doesn’t really know how they work for Paladins, because apparently they’re different customizations for different races/classes. I asked Nick about it when I was in the mid-70s, and he told me not to worry about it yet. And then added that my Macbook may not be able to handle all of them….haha. Sigh. So now I need to put on my big girl panties and do a Google search. Double sigh. (hahaha)
So, I’ve started getting purple gear (wheee!), which is great, but I’d also really like to have gear that matches (because I’m a girl and I like to match)…I know that it’s possible, but I’m not really sure how that works. Are there specific places you have to go to get specific pieces? Is it random? Luck of the draw? I guess I need to Google that too…
Oooh I just saw the Cataclysm commercial on TV.
Alright. I think those three goals will be enough for now. If you have any advice or special knowledge to pass on, you should probably do it in comments. 😉
