ChromeGnome – Attempt#1

So, the first ChromeGnome turned out to be a Worgen Hunter (why can’t gnomes be anything they like? Gnomes are the definition of all that is good (and evil) in the world). Anyway, the first few levels were no different to normal, from ~7 onwards the greens start landing and went straight to Mr/Mrs Generic Vendor for some much needed funding.

The problem turned out to be more related to my choice of toon and the unpredictability of the Battle for Gilneas where the masses of mobs decided I was tasty and the NPC army slacked off and watched.

Thus ended attempt one at the epic adventure.

Minor other problem, because I didn’t take the BOA mounts out of the mailbox to save bag space I can’t delete the toon until I get to somewhere there’s a mailbox. Which is a pain in the arse, a big one.

Attempt #2 is being planned, this time with a gnome.

Enter Tony Stark!

Blizz have thrown down the gauntlet.  The Iron Man Challenge.

So, I think I shall be nuking the little hordie I’ve been mucking about with on my home realm tonight or tomorrow and creating my little IronMan (or more likely a female ChromeGnome).  The question of course is “which class”, a mix of the ability to survive the inevitable mis-pulls / problems / fel-reavers with enough native “nuke” to make the combat go as effectively as possible.

I’m thinking that the prime candidates are

  • Druid (shapeshifting, what’s not to like)
  • Warlock (health through soul sucking, blueberry…)
  • Hunter (pets…)
  • Paladin (just because nothing says Iron Man more than the plate light dealing gods)
