Acanthia’s been my main for a while now, but up until recently I still spent a lot of time playing my other toons. For the past few weeks, though, it’s been almost all Acanthia, all the time.
I’m not completely sure why. Maybe it’s because Grandmaster of Flowers is just so darn fun, what with nearly endless ki, a heal available every three minutes, ranged spell-like attacks… and of course, Everything is Nothing. Maybe it’s because she’s just so much more solo-able than my other toons, or that she’s far more raid capable than her sisters and brothers. Whatever it is, each night when I sign on, I have this mental list of what I want to get done with which toon, but almost none of it gets done because I click Acanthia on the login screen and get crackin’.
So now she’s capped at lvl 25 and has maxed out GMoF as well. The only “big” thing left for her to do is Caught in the Web; she’s done every other raid in the game (except the Restless Isles ones, but… meh), she’s been soloing epics on eNorm and got her first eHard solo (Reclaiming the Rift) last night. (OK, all you egolitists, I know you can solo everything on epic elite with one hand tied behind your back, but I’m NOT an elite player so this was a big deal for me. Now go back to your egos.)
So… now I need to figure out where to go next with her. I guess the logical thing is to start working my way through some of the other destinies; I’m just dreading it because GMoF is SO SO SO SO SO! damn cool. But there are a couple of things from other destinies I’d like to twist in, and the only way to do that is to give up GMoF for a while. *sniffle*
Although it means that all the XP she earns goes absolutely nowhere, I’m going to keep her as is until she gets at least a couple of Caught in the Web runs under her belt, and catches up on any high-level raids that she doesn’t have on elite yet. (I THINK that’s only Hound, and my memory is spotty enough that she might have that on elite as well). I definitely want GMoF for that stuff. Then I’ll probably head to Legendary Dreadnought and start working my way around, meanwhile cleaning up favor and stuff like that.
Someday, a long, LONG time from now, I’d like to get completionist on her. It’ll be tough, though; I have a hard time thinking of her as anything but a monk. I have a feeling that all of her future lives will have a sizable monk splash no matter what her “main” class is.
