Last week I’ve pre-ordered Legion, and ever since there was an annoying 100 boost plaque shining near my character list. Isn’t it a great opportunity to raise your alt to the current content? Well, yes, but I have all the 11 slots filled already and with 100 level alts.
Still, Legion brings us the long-awaited 12th slot in character list, and also there will be some drastic changes in classes.
So my plan is: when Legion comes, there will be a try of a Demon Hunter in the 12th slot (at least their starting chain), then I guess I will remove it and go for the most anticipated spec in previews:
They really sound very promising. I’ve never played Combat Rogues before, and from what I hear now in class previews they will be complete and utter swashbucklers/privateers, pistol shots, and everything.
Besides I’ve scrolled through all the class/race combinations yesterday in case I wanted to try anything else (and with Legion changes in mind as well). No, there will be no priests, and other classes are explored to the extent I want them to be explored.
So my 100 boost yesterday was well spent on the brand new alt – Human Combat Rogue named Hedersen.
And what would be my impressions. Of course having your first minutes with a new class and right into a multiple mob fight is frustrating. But when first hour passed, I think I got the grasp.
The question is: how do they plan making it even more brawling? Combat rogue already feels like a furious, very fast swashbuckler, and even better than fury warriors to some extent. Now I don’t know which I like best of the two!
When you boost your character to level 100, here are your perks to start:
- Free Garrison Tier 3 with level 1 Barracks, Herb Garden, Mine and 1 Profession building – it was Leatherworks for a rogue by default.
- Full set of 640 gear so you are able to rush into Blackrock Foundry and Tanaan, but you still have to work your way into Hellfire Citadel.
- Most of Draenor map opened, but there are blank spots in every zone to be discovered.
- The first quest you get is acquiring a shipwright and go building a wharf followed by Tanaan campaign.
And so, I’m learning to play a Combat Rogue now.
