I like the new LFR system… it’s nice and great and all that, but it’s also downright frustrating. I’ve had a legendary gem sitting in my bags for well over a month now and I still have nothing to put in it… I’ve had the 6k valor done for two weeks and I’m a Silvershard Mines victory away from getting the prismatic socket.
Every person I know that can use the 2h weapon off Sha of Fear in Terrace has it – including my husband for his offspec. And yet, I still can’t get my hands on it… and other than blowing a coin on Elegon last night, all my coins have been going to Sha of Fear for weeks…
We cleared MGV for the first time last night and we’ll be going again Friday [healers work schedule permitting] to work on the second boss in HoF. I’m really satisfied with our raid’s progress… but there again, I’m a long way away from being able to get the Sha Touched weapon on normal, even with the Terrace bosses being reportedly easier than the Heart of Fear ones.
Why not put it in my OS weapon? Well… I do have a Sha Touched weapon for “offspec”, but it’s a 1h weapon and I’m a 2h frost dps for offspec with absolutely no interest in changing right now. Two hand frost dps feels right to me and I’m actually making headway… DPSing has long frustrated me and finding something I can make work and actually sustain nearly 45-50k dps in [60k sometimes in LFR] is pretty good for me. Making that change now seems silly especially when I don’t like the aesthetics of dual wield dps.
Even worse, I’ve been using my tanking weapon for my OS… That’s just how bad drop rates have been for me on two handers. Then there’s the whole, ‘I’m not throwing a 10k gold gem into my offspec’.
I’ll be glad when the drop rate increases… and hopefully that will work for me within a week or two if I can’t snag the weapon beforehand. Of course by the time I do, it’ll likely be useless… That’s just my luck.
But the frustration has been bad enough that I’ve just had no drive to go through the PVP battlegrounds to finish the Wrathion questline. I killed the boss in Krasarang when a guild group was doing it. I won the Kotmogu when hubby finished the valor grind and wanted to queue… and I’ve queued with him the few times he’s gone in Mines. I know in the next patch we’ll get a meta gem for our troubles… but that’s a lot more work away as is. And we likely still have a few weeks of this patch.
Anyway, one more coin to spend for the week… when I do my weekly Terrace queue with Ven. Maybe RNG will finally decide to like me. Or not. Probably not.
ETA: I queued up with Ven for Silvershard Mines tonight and won… So the Wrathion Part 2 questline is done and I have a socket and a gem sitting in my bags waiting for a weapon
