So, a week or two after everyone else because I’ve been having too much fun elsewhere (Persona 5 mainly, but also just not on the Broken Shore), I’ve finally unlocked flying in the Broken Isles. Not only that, but I’ve had somewhat of a windfall, loot-wise. Yopaat now has a 905 Whispers in the Dark, probably the most game changer-y trinket casters have access to right now, and my god it’s a beautiful thing. Just that trinket alone made my sim DPS jump by roughly 30-40k, which is insane. Add to that the shiny new hat he got, the shaman legendary Uncertain Reminder, and now all Heroism-style effects last 75% longer on him.
Whereas you get to play with 40 seconds of godly superspeed, I get a whopping 1 minute and 10 seconds! It also pairs up well in Restoration, as during Heroism, their healing is 25% stronger. Oh, if only I actually used Restoration anymore…
You see, my OTHER character also has some pretty strong stuff. Lunchi, who I’ve had ever since monks were a thing, and who has been Windwalker all that time, has opted for a career change to Mistweaver. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times before, but then it was just a “Panda Steve messes around as a healer for gits & shiggles” whereas now, she’s got (normal) raid completions under her belt, two really powerful legendaries ( trousers for fistweaving, which I ADORE as a playstyle, and the Velen trinket), and a trinket that drops cake. She also recently got her 4 set bonus, which makes my Vivify spam even more potent.
Now that I have unlocked flying though, I’m more keen to play around on other alts. Muirisc the warrior and Fujikomine the rogue have been taken out for a spin recently, and I’ve even played as Shokei the warlock. You remember, the class I played as the most for like 8 years? Who has a talent that I named this blog after? You know the one.
I may even bother to finish levelling Poundshopwig and Huomofa, my criminally neglected paladin and mage.
…but there’s world quests to do on literally EVERYBODY ELSE though!
Long time warlock here, I am finding paly tanking a LOT of fun. My warlock has sadly been benched most of this expansion, but now that I also have flying, it may be time to finish opening up the broken shores.. Or maybe my disc priest would like a spin at healing in legion. Or my panda monk with his dual hammers!!
Can’t believe I haven’t been following you – so sorry!
