Yesterday (Thursday) evening, BTH and I went out and played through a lot more of Highmountain. We haven’t quite finished the zone yet, though; nor have we yet recovered the Pillar to be found there. I am loving this zone and its quests ridiculously much. Kamalia is now level 108.
After we got to a good stopping point in Highmountain, BTH went to turn in an Alchemy quest at Dalaran and dinged 110. He promptly found himself absolutely deluged with things to do and has since been madly scrambling about trying to figure out how to prioritize it all. He’s plunged into Suramar questing without me, which is fine by me, really. There will still be plenty of things we can do there together when I finally ding 110.
Tonight (Friday), BTH had his RL D&D group, so I was left to play by myself. I did some Shaman Order Hall quest stuff with Kamalia, including running Eye of Aszhara again. I was right — the final boss of that dungeon was more of a pain with five people to keep track of instead of only two!
Then I took my Demon Hunter out to get her Artifact weapon and establish her Order Hall. She died two or three times in the early parts of the scenario, but by the time I got to the final boss, I’d figured out how to use all of my abilities more effectively and I didn’t die to him.
The Havoc Artifact acquisition was really rather fun. I wasn’t planning to get the Vengeance Artifact weapon, but now I’m thinking maybe I will just for the lore of it.
I was surprised by how awesome it felt to go back to Marduum for the Order Hall (even though I can’t actually go outside the Order Hall into the zone itself), and by how affectionate I felt toward my long-lost Shivarra, Coilskar Naga, and especially Ashtounge Broken minions 😛 Even though the faction sells nothing that my Demon Hunter wants, she just might have to run Black Temple enough to get Exalted with those Ashtongue Broken for the RP of it (though she might get there by default by the time she manages to get both of the Warglaives of Azzinoth).
