Our beta experiments

Each time a new expansion is about to hit, we ask ourselves the same question: “should we change our main character?”.

It implies that we aren’t happy with our actual mains… To be honest, we haven’t been happy with the Hunter in a long time. There are some great things about it, but the gameplay is no longer one of them.

Therefore, we’re always trying other classes in the hope to find a replacement.

We’ve tried many classes lately, both on live and beta servers, and the pattern has been the same for all of them: discovery – excitement – disappointment. For example, we would try a destruction warlock, get comfortable with it, reach max level, have fun completing quests, go in a dungeon and, almost directly, get bored with it.

After a few weeks hurting ourselves, we’ve finally found the right fit and, guess what, it’s the same class for both of us!

For Gamrok, the problem didn’t come from the class but from the role. He just doesn’t enjoy DPSing in dungeons… Healer was where the fun was when he started to play, 14 years ago, and it still is today.

For Sisqi, the problem was that no other class could bring her as much fun as the Moonkin. Eventhough she found the Paladin and the Warlock interesting, the Druid is what makes her feel the most comfortable in dungeons. Nothing like a dashing cat to catch back the group, especially those Demon Hunters.

As for the faction, no matter how beautiful Kul Tiras can be, and no matter how crazy Sylvanas can go, we’ll stay faithful to our faction: For the Horde!

TLDR: We’ll switch mains in BFA but not for a class we’ve never played before, our druids will finally have the place they deserve.

Now, off to complete those last achievements before 8.0 is realeased.

We did a thing

Last weekend, Gamrok and I pre-purchased “Battle for Azeroth”. Naturally, our first concern was which character to spend our 110 boost on. After “serious” thinking, we decided to both boost a Death Knight.

Saturday afternoon we spent the day leveling our DK’s to 60 before applying the boost. To my surprise there were a ton of people leveling in Hellfire Peninsula. It was fun seeing so many people enjoying the old content. The gameplay with the DK was very enjoyable as well. It felt like I was on a killing spree with an unstoppable juggernaut. Another thing I really love is the lore, it reminds me so much of the Dragonlance series. Hence why I named my character, Kittiara.

From the moment we dinged 60, we eagerly hit the boost button… everthing went fine, until we had to run a Legion dungeon. It was one of those speedruns again… like most dungeon runs these days, and that’s where it all went wrong. We both realized that we don’t like melee DPS in groups. Simply because we don’t like to run after the mobs before we can hit them. That was the moment when we missed our druids again, the shapeshifting, the ranged DPS and the healing for Gamrok.

TLDR, DK’s are fun, but I realized that I don’t like melee DPS in groups. I guess that we’ll be druids for life.
