Playing Bane (my Warrior) today made me appreciate how easy farming is with a plate class, particularly one with some kind of self heal.
Love is in the Air requires you to collect Lovely Charms this year, from mobs that would earn you XP. So I set out to find a good farming spot, and found a great location at The Lost Lands in Sholazar where Bonescythe Ravagers spawn every 10 seconds or so in an infinite procession. I plonked Bane down in mid pond and proceeded to destroy everything that spawned, with Miks scrolling an endless stream of ‘misses’ for the mobs. I kept this up, non stop, for about 45mins, popping Enraged Regeneration when required.
This netted the 120 Charms required for the Achievement and sundry other goods in the process. I could barely loot fast enough to keep up. On my leather wearing Rogue this would have required pulling one or two out of the way, dropping them, eating, repeat. Slow work. Since then I’ve read of some better spots to farm - BBB seems to have found the pick so far - but it was a good reminder of the virtual unstoppability of a plate clad Tauren.
