The Warlock Project

“One man’s ‘magic’ is another man’s engineering. ‘Supernatural’ is a null word.”

The Warlock Project

Working on live shows, they are usually one-year projects or one-day projects or, in colleges, six-week projects. The short deadlines appeal to me if I can get several or many such gigs in a row.

In WoW, while I enjoy the long grind or the constant raiding; having a new project is exciting. I’ve been working on my Warlock with shiny dreams of taking her raiding.

The appeal of a Warlock, for me, is the utility. The health stones, the summoning portal and the gateways all help out the team. To this end, if I want to be Mr. Utility, I’ll want alchemy and engineering.

My alchemy will wait until I’m revered with the factions; until then my herb picking serves me just fine.

Engineering is a whole ‘nuther ball of wax. The toys like the Moll-E mailbox require max level, 75, in Northrend engineering. Same with Jeeves. Reaves will need a long grind in Legion content; not only questing but gather the ore to support the leveling.

If I want all the engineering goodies, I’ll spent some time in the past.

And this is where I ruefully laugh because my miner was back in Shalozar Basin. Mercy, I have mined and mined and I would need something like 240 cobalt bars and 340 saronite bars to level up my Warlock to 75 Northrend. A tiny bit less because Gnomes get is +15 start in engineering skill.

But, you know what? My bank alt with his own guild vault had 300 cobalt bars and 300 saronite bars and a whole bunch of cobalt bolts! You betcha, I’ve been down this path before with two other engineers. I’m really glad I thought to look.

This will be a piece of cake.

  1. Maybe I should dust off BenAfflock. I think I got him into the 60’s range before BfA launched. I always seem to hit a wall and end up back on my main.

  2. Never hurts to look 😉

    I wish I was better at doing the long term goals. A weekly raid grind for so little rep gained tends to be placed on the bottom of my list, which is just silly, because it takes like, 10 minutes. Up!

  3. Keep it up! I love my warlock and hope you like raiding with yours.

    Its nice setting some new goals and achieving them. It is a very satisfying feeling checking off things on a list and whatnot.
