First week in Legion

I hope you’re all enjoying the first week of Legion as much as I do! It has been great so far and there is still so much I haven’t explored. The quests and dungeons I have done have been so fun and interesting, especially the main story line and the druid quests. I am not done with my class campaign just yet but I am excited to see how it ends.

This expansion release has been different because I just started school a few weeks ago, so I couldn’t just pull all-nighters like I used to do. But my classes are in the evening so I can stay up late if I want to unless I have work in the morning. There were so much to do the days before and on the release day because we wanted everything to be perfect so we could spend most of our time playing and less of it fixing stuff both in real life and in-game. So we did all the laundry, cleaned the apartment and did all our shopping the days before, and we cleaned out the banks and bags on our characters, finished leveling characters in invasions and everything else we wanted to do before Legion.


I was ready at midnight and waiting together with everyone else in Dalaran in above Karazhan. There were so much people and of course there was a mammoth train, lots of jokes, toys being used and of course there is no real expansion release without massive lag. Surprisingly, the servers didn’t crash and I was off for the Broken Isles as soon as the quest popped up on my screen. Everything went smooth and I got my Scythe of Elune!


Most people started questing in Azsuna and Val’sharah, so we picked Highmountain as our first zone. It is one of my favorite zones because it’s the home of a great tauren tribe, the zone looks beautiful and the quests are fun. We wanted to level fast but still enjoy the quests and everything else we discovered on our way, so we didn’t really rush through everything nor did we spend too long reading the quests.


We stopped to collect treasures we found on the way, went back to our class order hall to do quests and missions there and we did our own profession quests. Our plan was to do all the quests up to the dungeon quest and friendly reputation with each faction in every zone, so we did Azsuna, then Val’sharah and finally Stormheim where we hit 110. It took us a few days to hit max level because we spent some time doing other things on the way and because I had school every day.


It has definitely paid off to level professions early because I sold many glyphs and a few enchants early and prepared to sell Darkmoon cards as soon as I could. So far I’ve earned around 400 000 gold which I think is pretty good as I’ve also spent some amounts of gold buying herbs instead of farming them myself and I haven’t been camping the auction house for hours constantly checking for undercuts. I was one of the first on my realm to sell glyphs so I didn’t have any competition but I was also busy leveling so I didn’t want to spend too much time on it. There is more competition now but the prices are still good, though the cheap herbs get sold instantly so I have to be quick to get some. If you’re planning to sell stuff to earn money then I strongly recommend using the TradeSkillMaster addon which is great for making groups, pricing, posting many items at once, checking for undercuts and cancelling auctions fast.

My plan now is to get better gear through world quests, heroic and maybe some mythic dungeons, then I might level up my shaman next and of course continue to earn gold because nothing is as satisfying as opening the mailbox to collect a big amount of gold! I’m also planning to explore more of the Broken Isles because there is so much to see, I have already discovered some easter eggs and I’m sure there are plenty more to be discovered.

How has your first week in Legion been?

Not prepared

I can’t believe it has already been six months since I cancelled my subscription and stopped playing WoW. Time has gone by so fast because I have had so many other things to do and played many other games like StarCraft II, Diablo 3, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch and Pokémon GO. It’s been fun to focus more on my other hobbies and interests and try new games.

Right now I’m actually wondering if WoW ever will be the same as it used to be a few years ago when it was at it’s best. I doubt it. Mostly because I no longer have a guild. I lost many in-game friends when my guild disbanded, some people found new guilds on other realms and some people quit. Finding a new guild wasn’t easy, because I spent a lot of time trying to find one for Warlords of Draenor and I finally found one in the very end of the expansion. I had a good time there for a while, but then everyone lost interest and people left.

I don’t even know if I want to go back to raiding, but I don’t want to be stuck in Looking For Raid or always having to group up with randoms either. Maybe I could raid very casual like once or twice a week, but nothing serious, just for fun to defeat the bosses, and with a social and friendly guild with the same goals.

At the moment I’m not even that excited about Legion, I try to be, sometimes I even pretend to be because I feel it’s expected of me. Of course I think it’s interesting and I’m sure it will be fun with new content. But I feel like I’ve waited for so long, so now when it’s finally here, it’s too late because I feel like I’ve kind of lost my interest for the game. Yes, maybe it’s only because I’ve been away from it for six months, except for some time on the beta. I hope I’ll be as excited as everyone else on launch day.

I just read that the pre-expansion patch will come next week, so I think I’ll login to the game soon to prepare myself for the patch and Legion. I’m sure there will be tons of stuff for me to organize, fix and do when the patch comes. My bags and bank are a total mess so I can’t wait to finally get some order in them. Thank you, transmog changes! There might be achievements, quests or other things I should have done before the patch and Legion, but I haven’t really checked and I don’t know if I think it’s that important. I might check around and ask some people about it.

My computer will also need a little cleaning up before Legion because it’s almost as messy as my bags and bank. I haven’t decided if I should upgrade to Windows 10 or not, currently running Windows 8. But I did upgrade my laptop’s Windows 7 to 10 and it looks good, so I might upgrade my main computer before it’s too late.

Are you excited about Legion? What are you doing to prepare yourself?

Keeping busy while waiting for Legion

My game time ran out in January and I decided not to add more because I barely played. I think I just had enough of Draenor and I didn’t feel like there was any point in doing raids, gearing alts, doing PvP or anything else, unless you think it’s very fun then you do it because it’s fun. But I didn’t find it fun anymore. So I decided it was time for a break and two months have passed now.

Real life also gave me reasons to take a break. It was tough after the passing of my dear cat in December, one week before Christmas. I spent a lot of time just watching TV shows and letting time pass by. Then I started volunteering at an asylum center and got to know many people from different countries. It has been a great experience and we have so much fun together every time we meet. But I’ve also had time to play other games like StarCraft 2, Diablo 3 and Heroes of the Storm. Right now Heroes of the Storm is most fun, but I don’t have anyone to play with so let me know if you want to join.

I’ve actually not read much about Legion, mostly because I want to wait and explore it on my own and it’s still early so nothing is final, and because I don’t find it that exciting at the moment when I’m tired of WoW and I got so  many other things on my mind. But I am sure I will start playing again in time for the expansion and I hope I’ll be happy with the balance druid changes so I’ll go back to being moonkin.

What’s keeping you busy while you’re waiting for Legion?

Thank you, Jessica (Yochi), for making this amazing background! Check out her work on DeviantArt.

I got it through this post on MMO-Champion where you can put up a request for a forum signature, wallpaper, Twitch overlay or whatever you might wish and you might be lucky enough to get something as great as this done by one of the many awesome artists there.

I loved my old background but I’ve wanted something new and updated since we got the new character models. Thought it was a good idea have both my druid and shaman on it because I they are my favorite characters.

Winter Veil and New Year


Happy new year! I hope you had a great Winter Veil and Christmas and I wish you the best for the new year!

I haven’t had anything to write about lately because I haven’t played very much. The guild decided to take a break till after new year. I’m not sure if I’ll go back to raiding after the holidays because I’m tired of doing the same bosses over and over again. At the moment I’m having trouble finding anything in WoW that I want to do, so I might just have a small break till I find it fun again. I wish Legion was closer. I have played a lot of StarCraft 2 lately which has been very fun and I might try Heroes of the Storm soon.
