Alt Independence

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one gamer to dissolve the bands which have connected him to one toon and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Azeroth and of Azeroth's God [Blizzard] entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of gamers requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to roll an Alt.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all classes are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of lvl 80.....

That is to say, in a way honoring American Independence Day, a determination has been made as to the next class Svenn will play to 80. There were some technical difficulties involving the poll widget which resulted in a second poll being placed in the field, and thus 2 sets of contradictory polling data were returned. While Mage and Rogue took top honors respectively, the Mage voters were far more vocal in their support (also, I'm pretty sure Inno stacked the Rogue votes).

With a four day weekend for the 4th of July and the added treat of 10% extra XP from the Fire Fest, Koal (Svenn's new Mage, and the only toon thus far to escape the Scandinavian naming convention) shot straight to the fantasy land of Dual-Spec/ Epic Riding goodness and is sitting at level 45 right now.

Leveling has been rather painless (4 deaths total according to the stats page in the achievement menu), fast (holiday quests/ riding at lvl20/ instances as often as the queue will allow), and full of DPS scunion (1k DPS at lvl 38 should be illegal - ty boatloads of heirlooms, AoE, and tanks who pull huge). I'm sure I will have more observations as Koal progresses into higher lvl content, for now Happy belated Independence Day!

A-ha, and the mages win the day! I'm well-pleased. Tell us more about him/her and his/her inherent awesomeness, please.

What self respecting rogue wouldn't attempt to stack a vote? I seriously think I may have been the only one to vote rogue. Come see me when you roll that Worgen later this year. I think the going rate for a WoW instructor is $25 an hour if I remember various blog comments properly. Conversations at work are only $12.50 an hour if my boss doesn't find out...
