[WoW – Hunter] Getting back into the rhythm of beast mastery

One of the things I never thought I’d do again was go back and play World of Warcraft.

It’s been an on-and-off relationship with the game, and one that I can safely say has its own little space in my heart, mostly because it really is a world all its own.

That said, I’ve been spending the past two weeks just enjoying what the game has to offer in terms of its new class, the Death Knight, and just yesterday, I decided I want to go and take my main out for a spin in the new zone from Wrath of the Lich King.

That said, as of today I’m now level 72, and I’ve done quite a lot recently. Yesterday, I remember being a pain in the ass to Hemet Nesingwary’s overzealous hunting brethren by being an active member of the Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals. Today, I probably slew close to 1000 Zaxxis enemies just to level my Burning Crusade Consortium rep up to Revered for a schematic I needed to make a flying machine… only to find out that I didn’t actually need the flying machine to make the advanced model.

Oh, and I leveled up.


That said, Beast Mastery isn’t the powerhouse it used to be, though I find myself still gravitating towards using it ever since I picked up tips from the BigRedKitty blog. While I could probably change specs, something tells me that I won’t lose my love for grabbing rare animals and using them to thrash other baddies into submission.

In any event, I’m getting back into the rhythm of shooting and commanding a pet, and it feels good to be back in the game.
