Hiredgun, Hornlove, and Failsauce have been working on getting their gear caught up. All three of them were in mostly Naxx-25 items when I resumed play, and most of that has been replaced by Tier-9 thanks to the Triumph badges from heroic dungeons.
Hiredgun also was able to get the Felglacier Bolter, which came only about 30 minutes after he scored the True-Aim Long Rifle. For a short while the Dwarf hunter was happy to be using a gun again. He really didn't want to go back to a bow, despite the upgrade in DPS. He'll survive.
Hornlove, who would rather have a bow anyways, has not recieved any such upgrade to her weapon during this new campaign. Still rockin the Arrowsong until something drops. Keep runnin the Pit of Sauron girl!
Both hunters are now specced as per Elitist Jerks suggestion for maximum dps as well as having a Wolf pet. Their gear is not good enough to switch to MM yet, but they're getting there.
Failsauce has been somewhat neglected. I did spend some triumph on T9 head, gloves, and a sigil for DPS. After a viewer of my justin.tv stream commented something like "why don't you tank yourself if you are always complaining about the tanks you pug with", I then decided to bite the bullet and make a tank spec. Failsauce had already been carrying around tank gear (more than a few blues, but 540+ defense worthy). Her very first heroic tanking was... Forge of Souls. Wow. Way to throw the gnome into the fire! I'll talk about this in another post, it was fun.
Well that's about it. Just wanted to give an update on my characters, nothing exciting. I'm hoping to get things ramped up to the point where I can do some raiding again soon.
