Last night did not exactly work as intended. I had originally planned on getting home and running some Mythics with my friend Grace but that didn’t actually happen. Then by the time a guild group asked for me to do Mythics with them… I was mostly in the wrong mindset to be successful. I did however hook them up with a healer friend of mine that was able to make the group work. Tonight however I need to get started on running my four Mythics required for a chest of raid loot. In theory we can probably make a group happen even thought Tam is travelling and not available this week. I am sure I can probably dip into the guild to pick up a dps if we wind up short, since that seems to be what we are always short on.
Instead of Mythical Nonsense… I ground the Warfront. Essentially as of yesterday I was short three pieces of gear from having everything 340 or better. I needed a pair of gloves, a second weapon and a second trinket… the last I am not entirely certain is an option for coming from Warfronts. I have not found a great source of everything that can possibly drop from a warfront cache, but what I did find seemed to only indicate pieces of armor and weapons. At first I was starting to think this was going to be a repeat of my past outings… as I got two more belts and two more cloaks… but before the evening was up I managed to also pick up a pair of gloves and a one-handed axe giving me that second weapon. Now I am effectively down to just the trinket, which means I could run LFR and hope that I get lucky or pick up one of the inscription trinkets.
This also means that I am largely without purpose when it comes to secondary activities on the Demon Hunter apart from farming faction to eventually push everything to Revered. I am not contemplating starting to run Warfronts on the Warrior in hopes of maybe getting a reasonable sword and shield option. I keep thinking at some point in the near future they will make Warrior tanking not feel horrible, and the couple of Warfronts I have run as DPS have been way less enjoyable than running them as a tank. Its an option… but I am not entirely certain I am ready to dive right back into a gear grind. I’ve abandoned any illusion of trying to maintain some sort of split mains scenario, and am largely just going to focus on the Demon Hunter for gearing purposes.
That means if I can make one of the Sunday raids… and I am not already locked for the week… I will just be dpsing as Havoc Demon Hunter instead of trying to do Fury Warrior. That doesn’t stop the fact that Sunday is a really bad time for me to be raiding so the likelihood that I am going to make many of them… is pretty limited. It is our hope to get a RoboSquid Armada based raid going on Wednesday nights, which is a far better time for me to be committed to raiding. Also if I am going to raid… I really want to be tanking since I am lacking whatever stuff makes people care about how they are doing on the meters.
If you are a NA Server Horde Player and are curious what the hell RoboSquid Armada is… check out this post for more details. It is sort of a dream of mine to kick start non-guild based raiding as a “thing” that actually happens again. If nothing else we have an in game Battle.NET social channel and a discord that are places we draw upon for building Mythic groups.
