A Tale of Two Squidies

"It was the best of times. It was the worst of times."

It certainly has been. As you no doubt noticed, Svenn has been absent, AGAIN! As summer draws to a close here in Alaska, it is indeed the best and worst of times. This time of season represents some of the best Alaska has to offer: salmon runs are in full force on many local streams, hunting is gearing up, and of course , there isn’t much snow left to contend with. On the other hand, it portends the rapidly approaching onset of winter (Fall being an extraordinarily short affair here in the Northern latitudes).

Anyways, in and around fishing, grasping at the last days of daylight and warmth, and spending time with the kiddos before school starts again, Svenn has been working on the new mage. Koal has reached Outlands and is sitting at lvl 65 right now. Grayce’s DK, Circi, joined him there and it has been a nice change of pace to level with someone again.

As leveling with Grayce involves both of us being on at the same time, not always an easy feat to manage with 3 kids, Svenn has also begun to level a Shammy in his off-off-time. I KNOW! MASOCHIST! Hence the “2 Squidies” in the title (Koal is Draenei as well). This did involve running a heroic or tow to buy a second set of BoA trinkets, but I had most of the badges saved up so it didn’t take long at all.
Voller has hit the ripe old age of 24, so he is still not very exciting to play. He does have 3 of 4 totem slots filled already (BTW, why did no one warn me how painfully annoying the totem quests are !?!), and his mana is holding out a bit better now than at the earlier levels.

While Koal’s AoE goodness assures him the number 1 DPS spot every time (he’s no slouch on single target either), Voller has struggled to keep up. I am hoping things get better once he learns dual wield at 40, though he may go heals at that point….we’ll see.

To Recap: Svenn is still here. Life is busy. Leveling 2 toons at once is working out so far. Oh, and Ottar (the S-priest), my current raiding toon, is finally breaking 10k DPS consistently (Had to throw that in since he gets played the most and talked about the least). Now if only he could catch those pesky mages:)
