Whats new

Well, wife and i decided to spend much of the weekend playing WoW. It was fun and a relief from worrying about job interviews and the like. She is gone today and tomorrow, and again sunday/monday. I am gone Sunday/Thursday for conference. So now we are getting busy. Anyway! What got done:

Started sorta playing my lock with Faradhim . He has this idea of two-manning instances. Sounds like fun. We have two tanks, and two dps, and we can even sorta heal the tanks. We managed to do Ulda pretty easily after we figured out the swing of things. Being 6-7 levels above everything helps alot. Anyway it was fun! Bottom line. We next want to tackle ZF (level 44 mobs). We are now 48/47, so in the lines of doable. Other than that, i'm real bored with the lock, idk why. She's slow to level, has truoble with multiple mobs, things take a long time to die, etc. I look forward to getting to 50 and the new zone (not ungoro, i refuse to step into that place again).

Druid. Spent alot of time on the druid, getting some group quests done, doing the SMV quests. They are all hard to me. Finally I'm hitting my cap. I think i need better gear (i probably do actually). I haven't had any dps upgrades in a long time to be honest. When i ran instances i usually got healing upgrades. Quest rewards? Healing upgrades. Very little in the way of feral dps upgrades out there. Wife and i played a bit in nagard, finishing some of the "kill x mobs" quests. Let me tell you, when she and i play, stuff dies fast, real fast. We burned through a bunch of quests quickly. Druid is now 69 (just hit), i want to get to 70 quickly and get some tanking gear so i can start doing the 70 instances. Kara? Maybe, maybe. Not sure if i want to go back to 20 hours of kara wipes a week (actually, i dont, and i dont have time for it).

Hunter. Even played with the hunter alot. I logged on Sunday for the normal raid, and ended up going to ZA. No drops, but some badges and some quests done. And!!! At around midnight we decided to storm heroic Shat halls, the toughest in the game. And we blitzed through like it was candy. God heroics are easy with T5 geared people. So i finished 1/4 of my Champion of Naaru quest (4 heroics and Mag). Logged in Monday and got into a heroic fest. We did UB (daily, woot), and hSV (so now 2/4 for Naaru quest). Then wife and I went to see Indiana Jones, which was enjoyable but not a omg must see it flick.

Every time i get sick of the raiding guild and the raiding life i login and do raids and its easy and fun with well geared and skilled people. At the same time I look forward to being able to say 'yes, i can do that heroic' again on my druid's guild.

Suggestions for you: level all your toons to 70 and stop and wait until the release of WOTLK. Raiding will take on a completely different dimension when all of them are 10 men-able. I think a lot of smaller guild that used to die will now be on great footing.
I plan to level both of my hunter (49) and warrior (43) even a possibility another toon) to 70 before expansion hits. Add a free death knight from expansion I can pretty much cover all areas in a raid group.
