The Daily Grind Blues

Uh, tired of those dailys/valor grind? You’re. Not. Alone.

Being someone who generally enjoys questing and doing dailys, I shocked myself at the end of last week. It’s something of an organized habit to take the three lvl 90s’ in turn, to begin each day with harvesting and re-planting their farms. Then one, and sometimes two, will get the call to muster their way through an onslaught of dailys. No real problem here, just time consuming since any one of the three can easily rack up 20-25 dailys.

Dufit has the added efforts of setting up and mastering an attack on the auction house. That requires some time every weekday morning as well. Last Friday when he finished up, I looked at the screen and said to self, “I am just sooooo tired of dailys right now.” Let’s face facts here. It’s a real chore to keep those three adventurers happy. They’re all like “Go-Go-Go!” and I’m like all “WTH!!!”

So I told them to get and go if they wished, but I was taking a much needed time out.

Off I went a’visiting. Yeppers. All them alts that had been collecting dust since the Pandaren invasion got to see some daylight for a change.

Two in particular stood out. One belf demonology warlock, and a lowly panda bm hunter. Levels 19 and 18 respectively. I haven’t yet raised a Panda class, so he was an obvious choice to run around with. Besides that, he had leatherworking. A profession I would like to see 600 capped out.



The blood elf lock……well, just an untold story. She’s one other class I’ve never level capped out, so could prove interesting. Profession wise, she wasn’t into anything other than random gathering. So, like it or not, she is now charged with that elusive engineering profession.



Over the weekend, both made noticeable and delightful progress both in character and skills. The lock actually became good at killing stuffs! So she was rewarded with the cool looking wolf mount from the vast stable of choices when she attained level 40. Yessir! 19-40 in practically no time at all. Gotta love that re-vamped leveling aspect.

Our little Panda hunter guy faired good as well. Leveled from 18 to 27 in the blink of an eye he did. He enjoyed his time of attention so much though, that he chose to add his own faction mount to the community stable. Really nice of him to do so. It pushed us up to 101 unique mounts! And his mount choice matches with his tanking companion as well! Now, what could be more enjoyable and awesome? I know Dufit was quite relieved over this. He can now slow down on his dungeon rep grinds for that panda faction rep.

So really now. If like many others you’re tired and bumming out over daily/valor grinds, go dust off a couple of lowly alts. I promise, the grinds will still be there when you’re all refreshed and ready to tackle them again.

      Hello friend! GL on the double agent achievement, got lucky with mine.
      LOL- you caught me off guard on Nokila’s gear question! Had to go look it up myself 🙂
      It’s all quest reward gear, except for the Ancient Bloodmoon Cloak heirloom from the guild rewards. Here’s her armory for a more complete list:

      Over the last several months I’ve been watching quest gear rewards for possible transmogs. Some of it just looks really nice, imo.

    Yup, I can do this rep grind once but I’m worrying about the rest of the guys even though Cat bought that thingy to lessen the grind for them all.

    Come on Nokila, show him how awesome Warlocks are!

      Dufit was quite considerate after doing all his rep grinds and made sure to buy each factions bonus rep thingy for everyone’s use. It does help a fair amount 🙂

      Nokila is becoming quite amazing! Lol, she now pops in and out of purple demon thingy like a shape-shifting druid and just burns things down rather quickly. Gotta love that!
