So far I like 5.2. I’m currently trying to gear my pally and spriest, though the pally is much more work since she is so far behind. Also I might be having to get her geared to tank before April to replace group 2’s other tank, not Amber. Though this isnt fully decided because Reav seems to constantly forget that this is the reason for bringing me being back in raid 2 when I really dont want to raid 4 nights a week. The original plan was to use my pally to get tank geared, then when truxx (other tank besides amber) comes back, I’d switch to my warlock when shes geared. But Reav keeps forgetting this. I’m going to have to talk to him and find out his plan. Either me getting geared, or if he plans on finding someone else. I hate to say this but I havent been able to work on my lock at all since we decided (I guess temporarily) to gear my pally, and if we are not going to get her geared then I dont really want to raid 4 nights a week. I’m getting better at melee dps, but I’m not as big a fan as ranged in raids. Though I do like having no competition on gear.
Anyway, back to 5.2. With the patch having come out on our raid night, I have only completed a handful of quests before having to raid, and I appreciated having the free (with vp) neck on my pally, I grabbed the tanking one, since I had just gotten a 489 dps neck, and to help the.above mentioned endeavor. I did not, however, have enough VP on my priest because I had vp dumped the week before upgrading 2 pieces twice. I’m close though. I’m at about 930, so provided I can actually do all the dailies tonight (no reason not to since theres no raids) I think I will be able to get the neck before fridays raid.
I also own the farm on my priest, so those few work orders will help. However, a word of caution. Do not join a raid group for Galleon when youve finished planting the 8 seeds for the faction. You will complete the first part, ending the work order, but you will not get the second part of the quest to harvest. The second part is where the rep comes from. Leaving the raid group, resetting the farm, digging up the crops and replanting did not trigger the second part, and I could not aquire the first part again. Mildly annoying.
On a different note, I have become mostly successful at dodging the devestating combos from the last boss in Mogushan Vaults. Which we cleared in group 2 last night, and got the first boss in heart of fear. Very proud. Now to kill Garalon. I hate heart of fear.
