I recently made an alt.
I made an alt in a class I absolutely despise.
I made a rogue!
Ok now I just feel dirty. >.>
In an effort to kind of get back at all the rogues who have made my life hell in PvP on all of my characters, I am taking it out on my toon.
She was only given 4 12 slot bags and 50g. If she wants anything else, she will have to earn it.
Yeah I foresee a long time until max level with this toon.
I did manage to pull this off with Lyssi btw. She leveled to 44 (before she server transferred) with just 12 slot bags and about 40G.
No heirlooms either.
I went with a Forsaken rogue.
I was thinking of a blood elf at first, but then I decided I wanted to be able to eat my enemies. So I had to be undead.
She is rather cute ^_^
I have been keeping her hidden at this time. Just to have a toon to escape to. I have told a few people her name and I fully expect others to figure it out. So while she is “hidden” she isn’t like other alts I have that I want no one to find. (You know, like the male gnome warlock I have on an RPPvP server that cackles evilly every time he kills something or someone dies)
Slice has decided that I will never be able to level this character. As Kate said, “That sounds like a challenge.”
Oh yeah baby.
I started her on Saturday night. I dinged 11 on her Monday night before I went to bed. I am hoping by keeping tabs on her through here I will actively level her. Even if it just one night a week.
I am so used to playing a caster class that I haven’t quite mastered the ability to deal with groups of mobs on a melee class.
I was questing in the Mills in the Undead starting area. You have to kill several named mobs and bring back their remains to a former employee back at the inn. One of the people you have to kill is inside the first house you come up to. In front of the house were 3 mobs AND the named mob I had to kill (she pats). Two of the three mobs were casters and won’t move if I pull them with my thrown daggers. If I get too close I just end up pulling all four mobs. I didn’t die, but it was a damn near close thing. Those suckers chase you for a long time. If I was a caster, I would just burn down the caster from range and pick off the other guys. I cannot do that as a level 9 rogue.
Suddenly I remembered: I CAN FUCKING STEALTH!
I went into stealth and waited for the named mob to pat away. Then I walked right past the three mobs at the door and pulled her over to where I could kill her without pulling other mobs.
TLDR: I have to change my mindset while playing.
The only other melee character that I have leveled for any period of time (my warrior, pally & other rogue don’t count cause I hardly played them) was my DK and all I did was smash the keyboard. She actually stopped being fun once I figured out a rotation. Funny how that works.
I have been talking to Andrew about what spec I should level as (he says combat, but then he is a combat rogue) and has been helping me with generally attempting to figure out how to fricken play. Right now I pull with my thrown dagger, then spam sinister strike until I have like 2-3 combo points, then hit gouge, then stand there and stare at the mob until I have enough energy to hit eviscerate. Whereupon the mob either dies or I get to spam sinister strike again.
So yeah I am most likely “doing it wrong” but I am having fun.
My favorite thing to do is to yell “STABBITY STAB” right before I kill shit.
I think I must turn this into a macro!
