My husband looked at me and sighed. My guildmate sadly pronounced that I was insane. And a lovely twitterati pointed out that her guildmate was on his 3rd round. I just couldn’t help myself: I’m working on Loremaster again.

To say this round is a bit easier would be an understatement. I’m geared to the teeth and my lazers of doom are frightening. I realized as I was working through the Hallowed Eve event that I kind of missed having achievements. While I created Nightfall to catch up on myriad and sundry reputations and dungeons that I had missed on other characters, it just wasn’t the same. Despite my alt-iness, I always have had a main, and that my current main didn’t even have the same number of achievements as my paladin was really starting to gall.
I also felt a little disconnected from Terri. Sure, I raid with her, but I didn’t have any other reason to give her a whirl. It took me a while to track down that feeling of disconnect, and I realized it’s because I leveled her too fast. When I did the podcast for Twisted Nether a fellow in the chat room scoffed when I said I spent 3-4 months on leveling a new character. Part of the reason is because I never have just one alt that I’m leveling. But the other part is that I’m an inherent explorer. I tend to bumble around picking herbs and exploring crannies. I didn’t take that time with Terrielle, and the lack of time and exploration really showed in how attached I was to her.
While I’m not officially participating in this year’s IntPiPoMo (although you should go check out the participants screenshots which are lovely) I thought it’d be fun to share my last couple of weeks worth of screenshots as I trekked through various zones.
I went by the Hillsbrad Foothills and belatedly remembered that it’s a Horde only zone now! However, I did spot by to pay homage to the Dalaran that was.
I was excited to find myself flying around in the Blasted Lands. I’ve always wanted a really great shot of Nethergarde Keep, which is the perfect picture of an Alliance outpost.
Even if it doesn’t have a heroic statue like Hearthglen.
I found some a nefarious altar tucked away in a remote corner.
And really enjoyed the new addition of The Tainted Forest, even if there really wasn’t enough to do!
The new Thousand Needles is a load of fun, and I even have a magic hat. I was surprised to find myself searching for black gold.
But the best part was saving a load of cute cubs.
And watching them have their revenge.
