Fire and lightning!

After seeing a number of videos from XboxGorefiend with his 5xShammy team, I decided to give that a go myself. I created a bunch of drenai shamans and played them up to level 18 in the last four days. It was the first time for me in the Drenai starter zones and I can only recommend that you try them. There is not only nice scenery, but also nice special effects to some quests. Definitely worth a look and entertaining, unlike doing the other starter zones another time.

Shock and loot. That is how it is looking at the moment. I am eager to get to level 20 and have ghost wolf to help me get around. I was aiming at that yesterday but got delayed by talking to people going WTF?!? every couple of minutes. Shammy spells are more flashy than that of my primary team, from direct casts to selfbuffs like lightning shield and rockbiter.

This definitely motivates me to make a 'Multibox FAQ' youtube clip to save me a lot of typing =]

Cheers, Captn.

About that 'WTS dreadsteed boost'

I neglected to comment on that bit on the end of the clip. Considering that my team is still stuck on slow gryphons and the difference to my netherdrake is quite striking, I am interested in getting swift mounts. The problem is that since that is 5200g per head, the total is 26000g.

My team gives me a lot of grinding power, but I hardly ever use it, preferring to do something more fun instead. Then the raids are taking a lot of time. That combined with the boosts that I did for a number of guildmates made me consider the option of selling boosts for the dreadsteed or pally charger quests. The cost of the mats/payments to npcs would be still below the price of a regular mount, even if I demand a fee of 150g or so for the hour of work.

Anyway, I am not going to post this offer anywhere really, but if you want to take it me up on it, we can see what we can do. =]

Cheers, Captn.

Mission: Dreadsteed

Since reaching 70, I have at a number of occasions helped guildmates with their warlock or paladin epic mount quests. These days to get a group together to head to Scholomance or Dire Maul for these quests or otherwise. However, the class specific mounts are both nicer and cheaper than the generic racial mounts and riding skill purchase. Naturally the person who wants the mount is sufficiently motivated, but what about the others?

If these others is just me, that impact can be minimized and getting the group to be a go is much easier.

To illustrate how this works, I captured a bit of the action with fraps and cut it together to a youtube clip. Considering that the amount of subtitles or titles would have just been silly, I went for a narrative voice-over this time, even though I don't have an exceptional microphone or English as my mother tongue. =]

Anyway, here it is:
