Did he ever lose it? I’m not sure. But when I initially hit 80, I was a bit lost about what to do.
But now I’ve realized my mistakes:
- Just because I’m 80 doesn’t mean I’m ready to run Heroics.
- No one runs regular 78-80 dungeons.
- I don’t need to gear for both of my specs at once.
So I’ve decided to focus on rep grinds and getting some Titansteel gear together. I’ve already replaced his Ingvar’s Monolithic Cleaver with a Titansteel Destroyer, and after tonight, I’ll also have a Spiked Titansteel Helm to replace his Helm of Brutal Slaughter. My goal is to get Ghugh’s retribution set (his main spec) Heroic-worthy, and then start running Heroics as DPS (hopefully with a bear-tank so I can steal all the plate tanking gear that drops!)
So for now, Ghugh has made his home in Icecrown. It’s not a very pretty place to hang out, but it’s got everything I need:
If I’m not questing in Icecrown, I’m doing my Argent Tournament & Knights of the Ebon Blade dailies. If I’m not doing dailies in Icecrown, I’m mining a buttload of Saronite and hoping to pick up some Titanium. If I’m not mining in Icecrown, I’m at the closest mailbox/forge making Titansteel and taking advantage of my mage’s Transmute: Titanium skill!
It’s going to be pretty slow going, but I don’t mind. If Ghugh has to wait til 3.2 to start running Heroics… well, that’s ok! Better gear then, anyway!
I just have one thing to say - HOW do people do it? Maintain multiple 80s? I’ve got just two now, and it’s difficult to keep up! Sheesh.
