My wife and I arrived in South Maui last week for an extended stay.
I was planning on gaming/blogging in the evening here but so far I’ve been pooped each night after dinner. We’ve been waking up early to enjoy the smoother water conditions for snorkeling and bodyboarding in the morning and getting out again in the mid-afternoon til evening to catch more waves. As an aside, if you are planning on bodyboarding (boogie boarding), I highly recommend getting a pair of short-bladed fins, they make it wayyyy easier to catch waves.
We bought an underwater case for our camera, and we recorded some sweet footage while snorkeling, including turtles at their cleaning stations (where they go to get their body cleaned by fish). When I get a chance I’ll share video.
As far as Rift goes, my Cleric is at level 32. I’ve found that in the 30-39 bracket that I get blown up much faster compared to the 20-29 bracket, so I’ve respec’d from Shaman/Justicar to Justicar/Shaman. Here’s my new spec:
The 15% damage mitigation in Justicar is a huge help for survivability, and the tradeoff of damage for survivability has been well worth it. 24 points seems like a solid stopping point in Justicar for now, so I will invest my next handful of points in the Shaman tree.
I have some edited footage from level 26 that I just need to narrate, hopefully that will be up soon.
