Well, 11minutes ago on the play time clock I got the big DING on the 70 clock. I ported to IF and trained, headed to the mail box and grabbed my new set of gear.
The Cobalt Clad Holy Warrior-
My stats unbuffed with out the Cobalt shoulders are:
10.44% block (480 BV)
I can't believe how good this set is really. I entered Wrath with my other pally in T4/T5 and Isle badge gear. Yes my stats were good and I had them all socketed w/the best there was, but I don't think my numbers were much better. Not by a ton anyway.
To put pen to paper, so to speak and just keep myself with in limits here is my plan from 70-80 and beyond.
- I want as much gold as possible when I hit 80, as this won't really be a raiding toon til Cata but I want a solid start once Cata starts.
-I am at a bit of a disadvantage, I don't know anyone on this server, its a new world to me and TBH reading trade while doing banking, this isn't a very inviting server to new players.
-I want to make it into a raiding guild that fits my schedule/style/skill level.
-I don't see Cata being released really soon, I have time to do what I want at my pace, including getting to 80 with this toon and setting up a DK to help me farm other mats in cata (ugh that means messing around with another dk)
-I don't know if its possible but I want to see the Sauerfang ICC 10/25 lore before the fight. I should be able to get in there. Depending on how much I grind badges.
-No gems that I can't cut. I'm JC and a miner. I need to plan ahead on newer gear to be at the JC skill to cut what I need.
-No Armor that isn't craftable. That is cryptic tired talk for, farm what you need. Don't buy it, unless you have to.
-Keep the enchants to the bare minimum. If I need it to stay around uncrittable, buy it but....it doesn't need to be the best. Armor kits will and can do.
-Save all the GOLD you can.
-I plan on leveling in 5 mans as much as I can. I have noticed that real gold comes from questing so I need to do that as much as possible.
-As soon as I can I need to get to the Argent rep area. I need the head enchant and the legs are still pretty good.
-ToC normal at level 78 is also going to be on my to do list. Blackheart is a must as are the dailies to bring up my gold and rep, I really want to ride a ram.
-At level 75, I will be in sholzar basin to farm and do the quests there.
-I want to do the allinace side wrathgate quest line as well.
I will log all my up-to-date stories and upgrades to let you all see this. I'm looking forward to this project. It will keep me out of the in-game-boredem I'm feeling on my main.
So every day or two I'll post up my level, stats, stories and maybe I'll jump in on Beta tester talk as well.
