With 2008 behind us and 2009 just starting, I’m starting to look at my long-term WoW goals. Here are the top 10 things I’d like to do this year..
#1 – Clear all current raid content.
As a guild leader, a raid leader and a raider in general, my number one goal is to pull our 10-man team together and clear Naxx-10 and Eye of Eternity. Ulduar and Ice Crown will be out by the end of the year so those are on my list as well. I could sell out and join an already progressed raid team but it’s more satisfying when you down bosses with your friends that have worked hard on their gear.
#2 – Druid Dual Speccing.
Back when I played Alliance, outside of my Warlock my favorite toon was my Night Elf Moonkin. I’m in the midst of leveling a Tauren Druid through the RAF program so I’m not TOO far behind in this goal. I mainly want to DPS as Balance and off-spec as Restoration.. but I really want my Boomkin back T_T.
#3 – Tankadin is GO!
My Pally is sitting at 68 and will most likely be my next toon to 80. I loved tanking on my Pally but I’m currently leveling as Retribution to make the quest-grind go faster. I’ve been doing a lot of reading and I’m sure I’ll be hounding Fuubaar for advice once I make the final respec. Pull everything. Tank everything. That is my mantra.
#4 – I can has haelz pls?
I’ve wanted to try my hand at healing for awhile now but the only class I feel confident in healing with is a Druid. I have a 62 Troll Restoration Shaman and I’m loving the changes to make us better 5-man healers (Riptide & Glyph of Lesser Healing Wave is FTW) so my full intentions are to level her as Elemental and eventually swap out to Restoration at 80.
#5 – WTB Devilsaur.
It took about a year for me to finally settle in to a Hunter after deleting about 10 at the level 16-20 mark. I’ve finally gotten some of the fun abilities and found a pet I really enjoy (Gorilla) but the thing that intrigues me the most is the ability to tame massive, annoying, loud pets (I.E. Devilsaur, Rhino, Core Hound). I was a huge Demonology fan on my Warlock and BM for Hunters reminds me of the glory days. My little Belf Hunter is currently 44 so in 16 levels I’ll let the annoyance commence!
#6 – Shadow Drake.
Step 1 is getting exalted with Wyrmrest Accord. Step 2 is talking myself in to spending 1700g on a Drake. The beauty of being a Shadowpriest is that all of my mounts end up being the same color.. purple. I want a drake to swoop around in and this one seems like the easiest one to get. I could run Heroic Strat everyday and risk not making the timed event and/or losing the roll.. BUT I’m almost exalted with Wyrmrest already >.>. Looks like I’ll be waiting.
#7 – RP.
I’m a nerd at heart. On paper, I love the idea of RP’ing with my characters but I’m not that vocal about it. If I’m bored, I’m usually found leveling an alt rather than RP’ing to develope my stories. Once my alts are maxxed, RP is where it’s heading for me. My goal is to RP as something that is totally NOT me (i.e. sarcastic, witty and somewhat prick-ish) like a noble Paladin or maybe my Druid or Shaman. I want to push myself and hopefully find my creative niche’. I’d say I’m pretty good with RP’ing on Abigore because he’s somewhat like me IRL but I want to broaden my horizens, so to speak.
#8 – Achievement Titles.
I’m not an achievement whore by any means. I tried for The Hallowed and got the title on my Warlock but outside of Jenkins, my Shadowpriest has nothing. I’d like to get the Cenarion title for my Druid and maybe the Argent Champion title for my Paladin strictly for RP purposes.
#9 – Death McNuggets
I still haven’t bought in to the Death Knight fad but I intend to at least TRY one. I’ve made 3, completed the starter zone and then deleted them just to try out each talent tree (and I honestly love their starter zone and quest chain) but I wouldn’t mind actually going a little further with one.
#10 – It burns when I PVP.
The last time I seriously PVP’ed was back on my Horde Warlock during Arena Season 1.. yeah. I’d like to devote at least one of my toons to PVP (I’m thinking my Hunter) and give it a shot.
So what are your resolutions?
