Easy does not equal fun. It's rather disappointing.
The 1st time I rolled a gnome, I picked the pretty face with the green eyes. It's just automatic to always go for the prettiest face. But then we got those Christmas gnome machines --- whatever they are called --- which we would all 15 of us use before going into a BG. And I would go back & forth in it until I got the Angry Face.
And so I ended up with a 2nd gnome mage on our old server. Well... I didn't really have an interest in any of the other gnome classes.
Angryface on the old server wasn't of high enough level to be worth transferring, & I felt that having the Angry Face would be more conducive to leveling for me, so I deemed it worthwhile to roll all over again.
Bleh. I forgot what it's like to level a mage.
We played the looting game again. I also couldn't control myself on several occasions & I ended up charging into the middle of Phil's group & Blast Waving. And then dying. Well, it was fun.
I think Blast Wave has to be the greatest redeeming factor of Mage Fire Spec. I've always been a fan of Frost (Tamastara leveled to 60 Frost... yeah, it took awhile.), but this Blast Wave stuff... & then this Dragon Breath stuff... well, what mage doesn't go crazy for AE?
I should probably keep leveling Angryface. A couple of weeks ago I couldn't stand it any more & I started playing Tamastara (Bloodscalp) & Jaspre (Uldum) again. I just couldn't stay with the herd, although I did try. But the fact of the matter is I think I'm just an Undead chick.
