That’s right. That’s me in my new Swift Flying Form. 280% speed increase in the air, 100% speed increase when running along the ground. I can fly anywhere faster than using flight paths, simply because I can fly “as the crow”, and get from Point A to Point B without any swerving or curving. This… Only after about a week of farming for 4000 gold worth of herbs and Primals, and only after about 2 weeks of playing with my new guild.
I started hitting the end of the line as far as solo content goes, so I started looking at guild recruitment posts and threads and advertisements and I found one that looked promising: Militis Noctis. You know, the whole thing where they promise to help you get done whatever you need done, and they let you play however you want to play, AND they do dungeon instances. It’s pretty much the dream guild on paper. So I decided to give them a shot. Little to no roleplaying, which is okay for now. I always thought RP’ing on a guild channel was a little wonky, seeing as how you can talk to anyone, anywhere, any time… A little… Unrealistic for roleplaying. But anyway…
The first night I join? I was asked to run an Outlands dungeon. My first since the dungeon in Hellfire Peninsula! So I group up and we smash through a dungeon in no time. The next day, someone needs to run a dungeon called Mechanar, so I group up and we smash through that dungeon, too. Unfortunately, I’m not keyed for the big one called Karazhan, but guess what? They’re actually helping me get keyed, too! It’s everything Ahrotahntee promised, only MN delivers on those promises. I told them I’d be willing to try them out, but I’ve fit in so quickly and we’ve helped each other so much so quickly in only a week, that I think I’ll most likely stick with them.
So, anyway. I hit 5000 gold last night and bought training for Riding 300, and then more herbs sold and I hit 200 gold, with which I decided to buy a swift griffon mount. I almost didn’t buy one, because I could just use my swift flying form once I finished the quest, but the quest has you running through a heroic instance (which means it’s extremely difficult), and I didn’t think I would run it for a while, because the guild is still trying to get through Karazhan. Buuut… That night was scheduled a heroic instance run that didn’t follow through, so everyone was free to do Heroic Sethekk Halls, which is what I needed! So now I have my swift flying form and a guild that actually helps… Yay! We only wiped once on the boss, too. But we don’t technically count the very first attempt ever, because that’s the learning attempt. After we knew what to do, it was easy. (Nerve-wracking and intense, but still relatively easy.)
(Yes… This was a post to show off. My guild rocks!)
