Toon-Time :)

It is time to give my other toons a chance to level now that all my 80s are at a point where the only upgrades (except for some trinkets) come from emblemes of frost and ICC /10/25. A little update:
* Jemhadar got the sweet Zod's Repeating Longbow from ICC25, bought the T10-helm, needs only 17k to be exalted with Ashen Verdict (no farm-runs), some fucking 4k-dps-hunter got Death's Verdict because he had 3 dkp more than me, he gimped himself and thatfor the raid for the last 7 weeks to save up for this very trinket with roughly 60% attendance ... gz, I guess you know what the other 23 members of the raid including the raidleader think of you
* Nejem is probably second now in gearscore (with 590 ungemmed ArP he definitely will be marksman again)
* Tajem still got no new shield (Anub droped his shield for the first time, but I was there with Jemhadar ^^, oh yeah, 27min for the complete ToC10-run was a new record for us) but he got a new tanking-ring from ICC10 and the T10-shoulders
* Drujem did ToC10/25 and ICC10 (first 4 bosses, only me and a resto-shaman as healers, the next bosses were simply to much for us two to handle), got some items and bought the T10-shoulders, she will hold on to the 4pT9-bonus as long as she can
* Trijem barely left Dalaran to do the jewelcrafting-daily, maybe one or two random heroics

Back to my other toons /70-80):
When my resto-shaman Shajem (dual spec probably will be enh) hit 70 (by boosting her with my deathknight through every dungeon) she came to a halt. Boosting her through dungeons with my deathknight was no option anymore (my dk was in naxx/ulduar-gear back then, 31k ub hp) and farming mobs with her flying in the air became boring after half an hour.So I jumped in the water - LFD - and healed my first WotLK-dungeon, and then the next and the next. Every day a random dungeon which gives her 2 emblems of triumph every day - sweet. And she is now level 76 sporting every blue that could drop for her. By the time she will hit 80 she will be able to buy at least 2 t9-pieces.
Encouraged by this I did the same with my shadowpriest Prijem, now 74 with all heirloom-items. Can't wait to get 75 because I get an AoE-spell then, I believe.
My first bank-toon, the mage Madjem, was level 66 two weeks ago and he only got there because I needed the level to learn grandmaster enchanting and tailoring. In the past he got 30 levels from the friends-program and then some levels by boosting him through dungeons with my paladin. He is now 71. I could exchange the heirloom-items with Prijem but I don't need Madjem to be 80 anytime soon so I didn't bother. Did 1.5k dps on average on my last UK-run and 1.8k on the first and last boss which I'm very satisfied with.
So yesterday I bought all the heirloom-items suiteable for my rogue Hidjem, bought him flying, epic flying and coldwetherflying, respecced to combat (since a friend told me to, for leveling) and trained my attack-rotation on some northrend-mobs. Maybe he will see his first northrend-dungeon this evening. I need him to be at least level 75 so he can open the normal northrend-lockboxes (skill 375). Also there drops a soulbound-recipe for offhand that can transform you into a wolf - and it only drops for scribes.
My warrior Fijem is still 77 and never tanked a dungeon ... and is specced for prot. But I'm getting more confident that I can do the job so maybe he will tank his first dungeon this weekend. Why are there no tanking-heirloom-items (except leather for bears)?

So that makes 5 80s, and 5 toons between 70 and 77. All of them have epic-coldwetherflying.

These are the professions:
- Jemhadar: 450 Enchanting, 450 Engineer (goblin, and I hate Blizzard for making the ammo-recipes the way they are, depending on specialisation)
- Nejem: 450 Herbalist, 450 Skinning (once I got my hands on Primordial Saronite he will learn gnomish-engineering so I can buy Plans: Iceblade Arrow and don't have to buy them on the AH)
- Tajem: 450 Mining, 450 Blacksmith (thinking about Jewlcrafting instead of Mining, I slowly gather the mats on my other toons whenever they wait for a dungeon)
- Drujem: 450 Herbalist, 450 Leatherworking
- Trijem: 450 Jewelcrafting, 450 Enchanting
- Shajem: 450 Herbalist, 450 Alchimist
- Prijem: 450 Herbalist, 450 Mining
- Madjem: 449 Tailoring (lol 75 frostweavebages didn't gave me that last point), 400 Enchanting
- Fidjem: 450 Mining, 450 Skinning
- Hidjem: 450 Inscription, 450 Alchimist

Oh yeah, Jemhadar got his 100. mount, the blue drake from oculus, and is now the proud owner of a  Blue Dragonhawk Mount.Still no raptor, anzu, icebear or attumens horse or hawkstrider.

Still only lvl40 is my warlock doing nothing ^^

The LFG and you

Overall I love the new LFG but there are some things I don't like about it:

* people get impatient and run through dungeons like crazy (oh what an irony that most of them have the title "the patient") and will kick you if you happen to not meet their standards
* especially tanks and healers will force you to do achievements and leave out bosses (you can leave or will be kicked if you don't agree) and if the achievements fails they will simply leave because they will find a new group within 5 seconds to 1 minute while you, as a DPS, are forced to wait another half an hour
* the penalty for leaving oculus right at the start should be 1 day or more
* the two extra emblems for random heroics don't count into the achievement for 2500 emblems
* people trick the gear-requirement by entering the queue in their best DPS-gear and then want to tank/heal

However I managed to gear up all of my 5 80s to a reasonable level (according to
* Jemhadar (SV-Hunter) 4314
* Tajem (Prot-Pala) 4192
* Trijem (Prot-DK) 4059
* Nejem (MM-Hunter) 4045
* Drujem (Resto-Druid) 3960

Before christmas Nejem was sporting the blue 187-Hunter-PvP-set and now he bypassed my former main Drujem. And after todays random dungeon he will have 50 frostemblems and will buy the 264-cloak and after clearing one round of trash in ICC he will also have a new ring. My two hunters and Tajem were able to clear ICC nearly effortless (with achievement on the endboss) and while Jemhadar (my main ^^) got nothing execpt for reputation (the ring) and frostemblems, Nejem got the bow (oh shiny) and some nice bracers. Tajem got the tanking-mace from the first boss. Maybe I try to snag a spot for Trijem this week.
Drujem gets the spotlight now. She is already sporting the 4peace t9-set and the frostemblems-relic (fully stacked she reaches 3000+ spellpower in a 5man) so I think I let her heal some ToC 10man in the near future (this week because its also the weekly-raidquest).

Jemhadar is done with the the argentum tournier daylies - all mounts bought. He also, finally, got the green protodrake and the moment he got it, went to the cavern to make peace with the frenzyheart tribe. He now slays at least 5 extra oracle bitches each day for payback. 2 more mounts to 100.
With the new reputation-system he also doesn't have to to daylies for the frostborn and explorers league. After doing one my blacktemple he also hit exaltet with the Ashtongue Deathsworn and has now 35 exalted factions.
