Logged on last night just in case the munq’s needed me to raid ToTC, shop they didn’t, rehabilitation which is fine by me. They did well, downing more than just a couple of the bosses.  Smythy did invite my shaman as DSP to do 5man heroic Trial of the Champion as DPS, but I really didn’t want to cut my “DPS” teeth in a dungeon of quite that difficulty – I know from healing the last phase is a pure DPS race and she’s still got quite a few greens. As well, the last dungeon I DPSed in was at level 72 and over a year ago.

Anyway, I logged onto my little level 71 warrior for a bit of questing. Sometimes you forget, questing is fun and really shouldn’t be rushed through. Questing on Fflowers is pretty nice now that I’ve remembered most of the spells. He’s decked out in a nearly complete the Cobalt armour set (shoulders are the heirloom ones) and so has (comparatively) massive amounts of HP and defence, so he doesn’t die easy anymore (or possibly at all). And usually has tons of rage.

I’m mentally prepping myself to go tank Utgarde Keep, I wouldn’t do it at level 70 because I thought that with only pathetic amounts of +hit level 72 bosses would be maybe a tad hard on him.

 

I’m still using the saitec keypad on my Warrior and everytime I play him with it, it just makes me want to use it more when healing, I think that could well be this weekends job.

So, just so I don’t lose this, my Warrior’s saitec layout is: (italic is the shift version) and this is working lovely for grinding.

As you can see there’s some spare keys lurking around especially in the “shift” area.

The thumb “joystick” is used as WSAD and performs stupendously well in that role. The two thumb-keys are bound to Attack and Jump, so I tap with my thumbnail to attack and tap with the “knuckle” to jump. I don’t really know how I can jump and use the joystick at the same time. It’s not come up, because, of course, you can run with the mouse too.

I do click on spells, notably Sheild Wall, Last Stand, Shockwave, Demoralizing Shout (a bad habit), and I move my hands all the way back to my keyboard to chug a health pot, which is even slower than clicking!
