I have been leveling my shaman for a while now, a few levels every now and then when I had time. The plan was to level through dungeons as restoration so I picked Sharas’dal, Scepter of Tides as my first artifact weapon. But I wanted to be able to solo quests as well so I picked the elemental weapon, The Fist of Ra-den, as my second artifact weapon because I used to have elemental as my off spec in previous expansions. I never really liked elemental, it was just a spec I had to have to be able to solo. Things haven’t changed, I still don’t like it.. So I went and got my third artifact weapon, the Doomhammer, and enhancement turned out to be incredible fun! I’ve never really played enhancement before because my main spec was restoration and all my gear had intellect on it, so it was simpler to have elemental as off spec. But it’s so much easier now when the gear got both intellect and agility!
My BF leveled with me, first on his priest and then restoration druid. We did both quests and dungeons. I played enhancement more than I played restoration because he wanted to heal in dungeons. Now on 110 my plan is to have restoration as my main spec, but I might try out enhancement in PvP because it looks like a lot of fun.
A funny story… I hit 110 and thought I might try to do some world quest for gear upgrades, because my gear was terrible and I wanted to increase my item level to be able to queue heroic dungeons and looking for raid. So I did some quests that rewarded gear and noticed I had completed 3/4 Warden quests and went to complete the fourth one. Then I went to Warden’s Redoubt to complete the quest for doing four world quest and get the box and artifact power. So, I just completed my first four world quests and got my first box.
Can you guess what was in it?
LEGENDARY!!! My first legendary in Legion, on my shaman, my alt, that had been level 110 for only a couple of hours… My druid still doesn’t have a legendary which I think is a bit strange because I have done so many world quests and quite a few dungeons. It seems like almost everyone else, at least in my guild, have gotten their legendary, many even got two.. Well, some of them have played much more than me and they raid every week which I don’t. But still, I hope it will be my druid’s turn to get a legendary soon.
How many characters have you leveled to 110? Do you have a legendary?
I got my Wild Gladiator’s season 2 weapons on both my druid and my shaman this week. Been doing Ashran on them both every week and some rated battlegrounds on my druid. The druid is my favorite character to PvP with, but shaman can be fun as well. I’m just not very good at healing in PvP on my shaman yet, maybe that’s the reason I prefer the druid. They both got new transmogs now as they got new weapons. I think the weapons looked good without transmogs but I didn’t have any set that matched so it didn’t work out.

My warrior has gotten some new gear too, but not the season 2 weapon yet. I’ve done Ashran to get him full Wild Combatant’s gear, Blackrock Foundry for some PvE gear and upgraded his Steelforged Greataxe to 705.

I started playing my warrior again in January and got him to Draenor. But he was stuck in his garrison for a while until I decided to continue to level him earlier this month. I’ve worked a lot this month so I haven’t had much time to play, so he just hit level 100 last week. I leveled together with my boyfriend who leveled his warlock. My warrior is only the third character I level through Draenor but I’m already bored with the dungeons and quests. Luckily it doesn’t take that long to get to level 100.
He has already got a full set of PvP gear from Ashran and Honor points and I’m planning to PvP a lot more. I’m not very good at playing warrior yet, especially not as arms in PvP cause I haven’t PvP as warrior for years. But it has been fun so far.
Do you have a warrior? What spec do you play and do you PvP or PvE? Any tips for me?
Today’s Breakfast Topic on WoW Insider:
My first character: Are you still playing your first character? Is she or he a main or an alt? And how long have you been playing her or him?
Syrcorax in the Burning Crusade
My first character is Syrcorax, a male tauren warrior created on Stormscale EU in 2007. He’s always been a tauren but I’ve moved him to Kazzak where I play now. He was my main from the day I started playing in the Burning Crusade till the end of Naxxramas in Wrath of the Lich King.
I’ve leveled him up every expansion but I haven’t done very much with him in every expansion. I think I did some alt raids with him in Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm but only some Looking For Raids in Mists of Pandaria.
I just brought him to Draenor a few days ago and I’m planning to level him up to 100 but I’m not sure what will happen after that. He just hit level 92 and it’s been fun to play him again after so long, I enjoy fury warrior more now than what I did back in Mists of Pandaria. I would like to try some PvP and see what it’s like because I can’t even remember the last time I did PvP as a warrior.
He might never be my main again but he’s still special to me because he was my first character, we explored Azeroth together and I have tons of great memories and screenshots to look back on.
Are you still playing your first character?
It was a Tuesday evening a few weeks ago when my boyfriend and I decided to find a last-minute pug to Highmaul normal. He went on his main, the monk tank, I decided to go on my alt, resto shaman. We didn’t have high expectations because it was late Tuesday evening and by then most people have already completed the raids, so we just wanted to find a group that could manage to kill one or two bosses so we could have a chance to get some loot.
We found a group in looking for raid and joined. The first boss went down pretty quick and we continued to the next one who was easy as pie. We went on and the rest of the bosses went down on first try! Even the last one which I didn’t even know tactics for. Who would have thought. I was even lucky enough to get some upgrades.
So I’ve reached my goal of defeating all bosses on normal, but I would like to clear them all on heroic as well. I did 6/7 bosses on heroic with my guild during the Christmas holidays when they arranged a raid for both raiders and socials, I played my druid and it was really fun but much harder than normal. I’ve also tried a heroic pug on my shaman with a few guildies but it didn’t go very well, we only got to the Butcher and had some good tries but we just couldn’t do it. Resto shaman is one of my favorite classes to play in raids.
