Whether the patch comes out this week or next, I'm totally ready for Icecrown. Our 10 man group pretty much took this week off and I couldn't be happier to say goodbye to ToC. Still that won't stop me from raiding 25 tonight on my shaman as Enhancement.
I have to remember to include Flame shock in my rotation and pray to the loot gods that a nice slow onehanded weapon drops. Death's choice wouldn't hurt either... but if I do win the roll I would probably give it to Cassiana... since she has lost every roll since we started doing ToC. That of course brings up the whole morality of rolling on something with the intent to give it to someone else... but that's neither here nor there.
Hmm... third paragraph now and I've come to the realization that I don't have a point in writing any of this. I'm just really freaking excited about seeing Icecrown.
Lets see if I can organize this into a list of things I want to do once icecrown comes out.
1) Run the 5 man reg, and heroic on all 8 80's if for nothing else then to do the epic questline for a sweet 251 weapon... of which most of my toons are in dire need of.
2) Run the 5 man reg, and heroic another 5 million times on my rogue and warlock to get them caught up on gear and into the raid scene.
3) Run the 5 man heroic of every other instance because I'm masochistic and like pugging.
4) Run the 10 and 25 man raid on all who is currently capable (5/8 80's).
5) Get ready for the final Arena season and switch to one of my MS capable characters (rogue, warrior or hunter) for our serious 3's team.
6) Get poor old Artorin to 80 (semi motivated to do this before the patch)
7) Remind myself that I need to go to sleep, go to the bathroom, and eat. Oh and saying hi to my family now and again.
9) Uh... phat loots?
Did I mention I'm excited about patch 3.3?
