I was enjoying moving my cadre of characters through beta, when all of a sudden it seems time is running out.
My plan at first was to narrow down to playing just three characters in the beta, so I could finish all the quests in Drustvar and Stormsong Valley (covered the Tiragarde area in alpha).
Now Battle For Azeroth seems to be teetering even closer, and I have so much to do with my live characters...I'm picking just one.
And the winner is:
How she got the job as The Soloist:
Ranged fighter. Better chance of not being forced to step in #%!* in dungeon fights, just because she's melee.
Her Blink ability gets her where she's going fast and out of harm's way.
Before the last patch she was pretty powerful. Now she's getting kicked in most fights, but this too shall pass. Fire Mage seems reliably well suited to most fights, after everything is sorted out.
She can shoot while moving on several skills, doesn't have to be interrupted every time she tries to cast.
The ability to float from a height. Invaluable in getting around strange terrains.
She's my Tailor character, always my favorite craft after Alchemy.
She's a Gnome! Adorable is always an asset.
Her only drawback is she hasn't a self heal, and no, Ice Block isn't a heal.
I'm going all in with her, and did the unthinkable, I looked at the Guild recruiting list and requested to join a guild. Eeep!
