Of course, there are still the usual things to do. Play a little raid, do a little dance, sing a little .. err yes.
So I have found a little side project as well. Something that happened quite by accident. Let me start at the beginning, though. Meet Deathnugget:
Deathnugget is a shiny new Deathknight on the server of Alonsus. When I transferred Snack (formerly Koch) there, I had forgot to entirely empty my bags, and had still quite a few heirlooms on me. Technically that is an advantage - after all, my usual support structure of crafters is gone and I will need to fill up a few empty spots (or actually buy stuff by asking in trade. Yikes! There are strange people in there).
And then the Lich King spoke to me. Oh yes. A special quest, just for me.
And let's just pretend that this looked a bit more official, shall we? From a distance, and with red glasses this might almost look like a quest. And I don't seem to be the only one - rumor has it, there are more of them around. Deathknights who roll on spellpower. This is the real explanation, obviously.
My secret project then: I'll go and level a deathknight. To 65 is the first goal, possibly move onwards, depending on how much fun I have. I'll obviously behave and not roll on spellpower plate if we have a paladin healer, but any other time - it must be mine! Let's see if I can still do decent damage - and if anyone can think of a suitable dps spec with 71 points in one skill tree - let me know. The current plan is to go with blood, because there is nothing you can do wrong in there, really.
