Sulfuras

April 17, 2014

Tuesday I finally got the last Blood of the Mountain that I needed to craft the Sulfuron Hammer. This weapon, combined with the legendary item Eye of Sulfuras that drops off Ragnaros in Molten Core, forms the legendary 2H mace Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros.

I sent the blood over to Kirgra. She grabbed the rest of the mats out of her bank and headed to Blackrock Depths. The dark iron can only be smelted at the Black Forge, and the hammer itself can only be crafted at the Black Anvil.

Once the Sulfuron Hammer was crafted, she mailed it off to Van. All he had to do once it was in his inventory was click on the Eye of Sulfuras.

And of course, we must have a couple of shots showing it off.

Hm, kinda dark in there. Go outside!

Tracking Complete

April 10, 2014

So, Juna has gotten all of the trackable hunter pets in Pandaria. She got super lucky with Hexapos and, um … what’s the basilisk’s name? Rockhide? Yeah. Both of them she found pretty much right away the first time she went looking. Bloodtooth and Bombyx in Krasarang were very easy to find as well. She spent the most time in the Jade Forest. Between the large phased area that Glimmer paths through, and the way Savage’s prints blend in with the forest floor, these were easily the two most difficult ones to track.

Now, based on what I had read, both at the Wowhead guide and at WoW Rare Spawns, it seemed like Patrannache would be the hardest one to find. And it is true that his tracks are really hard to see. But on about my fourth visit to the Valley, I spotted them. I tracked him through the swampy area east of the Heartland, but lost the trail just north of Halfhill. Fortunately, thanks to the many screenshots Euphyley has posted, I knew that his trail would take him directly under Darkhide. So, being a lazy sort anyway, I parked my behind near the big mushan and just kept a flare under him until the bird appeared.

Now for her next project. Let’s see … she has just over 100 Halaa battle tokens. She can go grind Oshu’gun Crystal Powder and get one of the two Halaa talbuks. She also needs to finish grinding Wolvar rep to get Sholazar Mercenary.

Also, Arelin’s transfer is complete. He has joined the rest of my crew on the Norgannon side, bringing Wega’s old bank guild with him. So now I have all of my professions together.

Juggs Deactivated

April 8, 2014

So … Iron Juggernaut. The damage on this fight on heroic is just stupid. I mean seriously stupid. Everything hits for 200-300k, and some of it is random damage that can’t be avoided. If you get hit by more than one thing at a time, you’re done for. I was one of the first to die on every. single. pull. Except this one …

To deal with the incredible amount of damage, we … gosh, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but apparently it’s a strategy that has worked for other raids, and hey, he’s dead so … yes, we 4 healed it. I don’t think we would have gotten through it without the extra cooldowns.

In other news … they finally got me. I don’t know why I even bothered to resist, it was inevitable. After raid I always stay in vent and chat. Kash and the tanks were all playing D3 together while I did quests in the Storm Peaks on Giska. They were having so much fun! So I figured, you know, I don’t have to buy the xpac to check out the loot changes. So I logged on. The witch doctor went out and promptly died to the first pack of mobs she saw. Yeah. But I decided the barbarian deserved a chance, too, so I dusted him off as well. The first two mobs he killed dropped upgrades! He is level 35 and was actually on the final quest, so he ended up killing Diablo and getting two legendary drops. Yeah … let’s just say Van logged on to collect his treasure goblin pet before I went to bed.

I blame Lyss! She told me the Crusader is voiced by the same actor as Lor’themar. She tempted me! Evil warlock, you just can’t trust them! :p

Boost Baby

April 7, 2014

Ok, I finally made up my mind. I was having a hard time deciding between Oslee the warrior or Oslen the hunter. Yes, they’re brothers. There was a third, older brother, Osler the priest, but he died in a tragic I-don’t-need-two-undead-priests-on-one-server-group accident. (Nevermind that I now have 3 belf paladins on the same pair of servers … )

Here is Oslee passing through the dark portal:

Anyway, based on research and advice from a post over at Sportsbard, plus my recent decision to finally break down and transfer the rest of my 85+ Horde to Kargath-Norgannon, I decided to get BS and LW both on the boosted character. Obviously, this would mean that whichever one I boosted would have one profession that doesn’t go with his armor class, but meh.

Here is Olsee a couple of hours later, magically materializing at the Shrine as a fully geared and professionally maxed 90:

Arelin hasn’t been transferred yet because he has to be in charge of my bank guild for a week before he can come, but I am including him in my count here. This gives me a professions count of:

BS: 2 (1 maxed)
LW: 2 (1 maxed)
JC: 2 (1 maxed)
Engineering: 2 (1 maxed)
Alchemy: 3 (1 maxed)
Inscription: 2 (1 maxed)
Tailoring: 3 (2 maxed)
Enchanting: 3 (2 maxed)

Plus multiple miners, herbalists, and skinners.

Oslee replaced almost his entire set of boost gear with Timeless Isle gear, and promptly ran out to get himself a Crystal of Insanity and a Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner, because … toyz! He handled the elites in the cave with ease. It didn’t take me long to see why Averry has so much fun.
