So, this weekend was all about my Warlock. A little history on my lock. Theladon was the third toon that I ever created, and the second one to level cap. He was my main PvP toon (getting to 1800 in season 4, not bad for a clicker with a bad team comp). I also raided with him from time to time and would normally be in the top 3 of our 25 mans for DPS. Shadowbolt spam FTW. Since Wrath came out, he has taken a back seat to two of my other alts. Now, finally, he is level 80.
The last level and a half went by very quickly over the weekend. I started the grind by heading out to Scholazar Basin to do the Nessingwary quests. This is a very nice place to smash out some XP due to the fact that there are tons of kill quests that are pretty closely clustered together. You are getting nice XP from the mobs you kill and then a nice chunk once you turn in the quest. I went through all of the quests up until I got the Complete Nessingwary Works achievement and the headed off the Zul'Drak.
I used to not care for ZD, but it also has a lot of juicy kill quests and quests that are more or less clumped up. I did the Argent Strand and then started doing all of the troll quests. Part way through helping the captured Troll God's I dinged 80. I purchased a Titansteel Spellblade and got ready to hit the Heroics.
In my first day at 80, I hit Heroic ToC where I got a fancy new pair of boots, Heroic VH where I got the hit trinket, Regular ToC where I picked up some bracers, and Heroic UP where I got some decent legs. I am not sitting at exactly 300 hit. I went from about 1200 or so DPS to 2100 DPS in no time at all.
I also took my Warlock into Scarlet Monastery where I bashed the HH's face in multiple times and got both of the caster rings. I know that one of them has MP5 on it, but it was a nice upgrade over my level 70 stuff.
While I was waiting in queue for instance, I did a bit of PvP. I don't really care to PVP as destruction unless people ignore me. If not, I am entirely too squishy. I got into my very first wintergrasp which was a win. I am going to do my best to get a nice PVE and PVP set for my lock. The PVE portion should not take very long at all. The PVP will probably take a little bit longer.
So far, I have noticed that it the new destro rotation is at least a little more interesting than the old fashioned shadowbolt spam. I have also yet to find a very interesting minor glyph for my lock. I will probably just end up using the craptastic ones that are provided :(
Overall, not a bad weekend. How was yours?
