Tol Barad

Ran my first one of these yesterday.  I played twice, once on defense, once on offense.  I was unimpressed.

A circle of zerging seemed to be the safest way to defend.  If you all stuck together, you turned the next item well before the attackers could turn it.  I did not see a way to break off without a lot of coorination, whether you were offense or defense.

With the advantages being pretty heavy for winning (pvp boss, extra daily quests) I figured they'd make it a bit easier to change hands.  What have you thought about Tol Barad?

Panda Instances

Just got done running some instances with Panda Attack.  I've had to pug a bit as well searching for a trinket, and let me tell you; guild run >>>>>>>>> pug.  Not so much that you won't screw up, but that you can learn to handle the adds, or learn from the wipes, or get to know someone new in the guild.  So if you are about to hit the random queue, call out in guild before doing so.  And if you see the call and are questing, consider joining up to make it a guild run.  You will be thankful!

Day 1 Cata

I rolled out the druid, and upped my cooking and fishing, hitting those daily quests in the new Org.  Then I went ahead and followed the beginning questlines to Vash'ir.  I wanted t ostart down the path of Earthen Ring rep (I think the tank head enchant is from them), and underwater sounded quite cool!

 

I got to solo quest a good amount of the beginning subzone, but as the day wore on, it became harder to click on the quest NPC without hitting someone.  Didn't up my skinning or mining skills... had to port back.  Druid has an advantage there, I bound to the local Vash'ir inn and then ported to Moonglade.  Got that done and quested some more.

We rounded up 5 pandas (3 warriors, 2 druids) and ran the Throne of Tides.  Note that you now have to discover the entrance of a dungeon before you can queue up for it.  I had gotten down to the Tides starting area, and with the help of a random person, summoned the rest of the team down.  The instance was interesting, but not too difficult.  Time for a break!

I came back about 5.30 server and logged in the priest to play with my wife's mage.  We went the same zone route, but with 2 people, and the time, the going was much slower.  3D following and ID'ing who is who was tough, but we enjoyed it.

Once my wife logged off, I ran another Throne run with Pandas on my druid, then headed to bed myself!  Moolofeign 81.33, Melofeign 80.45, not bad for a relaxing day in Cata!
