It’s kind of amazing how I’ve been sticking to my alts these past couple of weeks! So much that I almost feel like I’m losing touch on Sera here and there. I’m not as devoted or motivated to go run Reaper dailies, even though today I just got my 49th point. OCD tells me I need to get 50th, but it’s no big deal. Almost 100k per level is exhausting to me without drinking pots or first time bonus.
As much as I would like to just TR and get those first time bonuses too, it’s a bit much. Whereas I might be making only 2-3k rxp per quest, I’d probably spend longer in heroics and epics getting up there. Really don’t want to put in that much effort either, probably.
Anyhow, I think it was maybe a few days ago? A week ago? That I finally got to TR my Druid. It’s been… years for all three of my alts. Except I forgot that I only had maybe like 1 or 2 more raids to go for 20th completion, one of which was Deathwyrm and maybe FOTP. I needed the mask too for Milo’s cosmetic as a helf, ugh.
In any case, it’s progress. I finally got around to Niveax’s TR, which has been interesting so far. 6 levels in, supposed to be a ranged AA character, but I’m playing her as a wolf build with a Vorpal longsword until I get more points into AA and better gear, I guess. If there’s one thing about Druids I really do enjoy though, it’s that they are so adorable. I had so much fun emote chatting with a guildie, pretending to be this “slightly neurotic” dog as he called it. XD
From here on, I guess once Milo and Niv reach cap, I can then focus on just gearing them up. Ugh. That already sounds like a pain. But… then what? Just focus on Sera’s rxp grind? I still have a little over halfway to go for 5.625 million, basically 3 million more to go still. That… is an insane amount of rxp grinding. I suppose I won’t break that until maybe a whole year later, when we already have some folks with the wings. I just gotta keep at the grind. I wonder if we will start seeing them more as time passes on, it’s been way more than a year since Reaper released, surely there ought to be more Reaper wing sightings? I might only hear of a few that are around. But then again, once you’re sucked into your Reaper static groups, it’s hard to find those same players around in any mundane setting. 😀
One thing’s for sure, Ravenloft has helped tremendously in bridging the gear gap. I do somewhat think its a bit cheap, but for alts its also not a bad thing totally. Sylvette feels much more viable, and I suppose it’s also because I have a better direction with the builds now. Sadly, Reaper has sort of made that easy for me; no more creative or flavor heavy builds, it’s time to work.
