I return to Desolation Hold to continue to campaign against the slimy Alliance dogs. After doing my part to eliminate those scum, I head down to Firestone Point and my old lover, Mankrik. Uh, I mean, old friend. Yeah, friend, that’s it.
I’m not sure if it’s just me or what, but things seem to be dying a lot more quickly now than they have before with this class/spec. Maybe I’m just now getting the right rotation, maybe I’m being less dependent on Fire-specific spellcasting, but dying is just not a real concern. My crit chance is under 10% but it comes up often enough that I’m starting to like it.
I attain level 40 while taking on Mangletooth, then head to Spearhead and blow up the dwarf fortress. That gets me Evocation, which is almost useless at this point since mana is never a problem. After that I head into Dustwallow Marsh.
After making my way to Brackenwall Village, I tackle the questline there, reaching level 41 after handling the ogre’s questioning of the Alliance dudes. I deal with spiders and investigate the mystery, as well as doing some work for Jarl, making level 42 along the way.
I decide it’s about time to take a break, so I hearth back to Thunder Bluff and do the banking/skilling thing for this session. I do the dailies next, then retire from this round and insert myself into the persona of … whom?
