Or not

What can I say? Erm....I didn't go back to boxing. Well I did, a bit. I took the team to Blacrock Caverns a few times on normal, managed to do the first couple of bosses and got the shammies some gear upgrades and while I was doing this I was thinking in the back of my mind "why am I doing this? I'm in a perfectly good guild to go and instance with and roflstomp through this content" and so I stopped.

Why box when there's a LFG tool or you have a good guild? Yes they're are bad pugs, but my experience on all three 85s so far has been mostly positive. I guess it's all down to the reason for boxing in the first place. Looking at my very first posts you can see that it was frustration at trying to find an arc run, or indeed any group for anything. It was never about the challenge of boxing. I can't see a reason for boxing now, I really can't.

Indeed there has been much roflstomping through content since I stopped. Phear is reasonably geared, so I levelled Aztrid the tankadin and then Shoez the shammy. Currently I'm levelling Boondoggle my balance druid who is at 60. It's so easy levelling now, the levels fly by.

Funny thing is, even though I'm a happy single boxer, I just can't let go of my six accounts >.< really must sort that out hey?

And now back to Boxing

I've gotten Phear to 85, for reasons that I have yet to research, her DPS has dropped even though she's in better gear. Not sure why but probably due to some scaling I guess, still really good and better than in wotlk but now pumping out more reasonable levels of carnage :P Looks like a visit to EJ is in order.
Phear is my testbed, my pointman if you like. I've sent her ahead and she's completed all of the quests in Twighlight Hinterlands, Uldum and Mount Hyjal. Looking for quests that are boxable and have good rewards. Well I can't see that there's too much on the quest rewards side that I can't get comparable gear from the AH or from running an instance. With all the ridiculous collection quests it looks questing will only be done to friendly level with each faction and the rest of the time spent in instances exclusively with a tabard equipped. I'll need to sort out a rep grind order asap.
