So, my little drunken birdies, I’ve done something what might surprise you. I rerolled to my warlock.
I made a race change on both my lock and rogue, so now my main is an orc warlock and my ’first’ alt is an undead rogue. It might not sounds like a big deal for some of you, but for those who know me better it might be surpriseing.
I play WoW since… like...perhaps 7 years, and my main was always the rogue. I loved it but I also loved the warlock. Warlocks always fascinated me. During Vanilla, I even tought about rerolling, but back than, when leveling was slower and I hardly deleted even a level 20 characer. The other problem was, that I was on a PvP server, but only because the only person I knew irl, my former classmate, played there. I really hated the outdoor pvp, so it was safer outside with a character who can escape and hide. Beside that, back than warlocks needed to create soulstones from their victims in order to summon most of their demons or create a soul- or healthstone or to summon someone. So they were basically the sexiest class of them all, that was also a huge pain in the ass. Rumor has it, that at the very beginning, those soulstones worked as the mages oconjured things, they disappeared after re-logging. So they were even worst than, but even if later the stones became permanent, you needed to sacrifice an entire bag for them and keep it full with the stones in order to have a stone for eveything, because the those summonings sonsumed the stones, 1 stone per demon/stone/summon, etc.
The tought of switching a class popped into my head a few times during the years. When we finally switched to a PvE realm, I started to think about the rerolling aswell. But I changed my mind again, mostly, because it really saddened me, that there are so many things I can’t do with my character anymore, because the Cataclysm changes (we migrated in the Cata exp.) .
Perhaps because I became more burned-out in Pandaria , the toguht of switching a class came more and more times into my mind. I decided, that all right, i’ll spend some cash to it, but I will change the appearance of two of my most beloved chars. I played a lot with my lock back in BC , so I have a lot of experience any dear memories with it, even if not as much as with the rogue. Sadly, as I mentioned before, some things became impossible to achieve again, but at least I will have all those ’trophies’ with my ’second in command’ character. So sadly it had its price, but this way the characters remained intact and didn’t become alien.
Sadly some problems still remained, for example you need 1800 rated Bg rating in order to become able to use the lvl 60 pvp sets for transmog (and you cannot transmog Twilight cultist robe, which is kinda similar to the cloth sets.). Overall I find this (fuckin) unfair. I won’t start to explain it, that is for another journal, so please don’t start to speak about that in your comments! Sadly, I can’t even draw that robe properly on my orc, so I will take time to be able to draw it corretly (if i can’t come up with something better, but for now I can’t.)
Beside that, I’m an extreamly devoted (sorry, my dictionaries are packed, I have only google translator…) person, my characters for me are like favorite toys for children. (Yes, I couldn’t have a tamagochy back than, boohoo…). So for me a drastic switch like that is really shocking and unthinkable. I know most of the people don’t mind, and some people switch chars like underwear, but not me.
Another info what could be interesting for you, that when I began to play WoW I was interested in pirate themes. The favorite band of my teen years had a lot of pirate themes. And back them Lord of the Rings movies were in air, so I was thinking how I can match orcs with watery fights, so leather armor switched the plates, etc. And this is mostly why I picked the rogue back than. To be honest I realised that pirates are not my cake at all, even if I liked the music oif the band, and I’m not interested in Lotr eather many-many years ago. However even if I totally left the pirate and Lotr themes early in my WoW years, the rogue remained dear to me, even if warlocks ’turned me on’. ( Yes, I know that this is an expression for sexual things, but I used it here with purpose.) Yes, hell, I loved them.
So I must confess, I was kinda shocked, that I did it, but perhaps I should have done this many years ago, when I first toguht about it.
So now I have like 2 months to level alchemy , do at least the BC and Woltk quests and reach exalted froma s much oldschool factions as possible. But I don’t think I will make the legendary cloak for her.
Well, I guess no Diablo 2 for me for a while.
And now some different theme: the zoo of our capital city finally managed to get an anteater (giant anteater). I asked my bro, that can I travel there to visit the zoo (he lives in that city), and he took me and her little daughter there. So I finally saw a real, living one of my favorite animal. And of course it was awsome to spend some time with them. And beside that, now there were finally anteater plushies in the zoo-shop, so I was able to buy myself one. But I guess I recieved muscle fever by holding my little niece for too long XD
