No Business Like Monk Business

 

It’s almost 5 am, I’ve just finished my second Monster energy drink (with some water and coffee in between just to mix things up), and I’ve got a bit of a lull here at work. What a perfect time to write about WoW!

Actually, I can’t. I can’t because I, like many of you, haven’t been playing World of Warcraft.

 

Okay, that’s not entirely true. I have kinda sorta been playing some lowbie monks. I made a Monk Taurenmoose and a Monk Drow. Oh, and a Monk Void Elf once I finally got the appropriate rep to the appropriate Exalted.

Butforwhy?

Well, for simple. Two for simples actually. One, I enjoy playing a class that has the ability to beat things to death with their bare hands. Very enlightening. But more importantly, each day I can do the Monk Daily Quest and earn a fat 50% xp bonus for one hour. I’ve been logging in on each Monk, doing the quest, and logging off. The Horde Monks are currently capped at 24 hours worth of sweet xp buffed goodness. The Alliance Monk is getting up there as well. Once I get some free time to sit down and really play, I will make the most of that time with XP on steroids until the Rested xp buff fades.

 

Monks are great when you don’t have a lot of time to play, but you want all sorts of xp bonuses running when you do. Maximum Effort!

I’m also doing a majority of my gaming like many humanoids do – on their phones. I’m still abusing the Hell out of the Legion app. Since Blizzard is discontinuing their mobile AH app, I deleted that one and plan to keep my focus on the Legion app gold train for as long as I can. Better make hay while the sun shines, or while this mindless app lets me earn World of Warcraft gold without even having to log into the game.

I wish I had more to talk about, WoW-wise. I can’t even hype the Blizzcon hype because I’m not going this year. Stupid income tax amendment taking all my spending monies.

Something to chew on. I have the free 110 boost through my pre-purchase of Battle for Azeroth, and I’m trying to decide who to give it to. Should I boost one of my remaining 100-ish Death Knights that I haven’t leveled yet? Should I boost one of the new Allied Races to 110?
