Busy Weekend of Weapons

September 5, 2016

Well I got nearly all of my weapons over the weekend. I think the only class I haven’t gotten to is Demon Hunter, and I also didn’t do the Blood DK. Here is the list of what I have:

Death Knight: Frost and Unholy
Druid: Balance and Feral
Hunter: Beast Mastery
Mage: All 3 specs
Monk: Windwalker
Paladin: Retribution (x2)
Priest: Discipline and Shadow
Rogue: Outlaw and Subtlety
Shaman: Elemental and Enhancement
Warlock: Demonology
Warrior: Arms and Fury

So that’s … 20 artifact weapon quests. Which makes sense since I said I had 23 level 100s and haven’t done three of them. Yay basic math.
I posted the first 6 last week, so I did 14 over the weekend, which obviously I’m not going to post all at once. Let’s split these into 3 posts.

Apocalypse

Not much to say here, really. Unholy is rather boring but very durable. This was also much easier than the Frost quest.

Um …I’m totally blanking … oh yeah that was the one that was in the hands of the Legion, yes? Obviously it didn’t make much of an impression on me. I think the only time I died was when I stood in some lava and didn’t realize it because everything is freaking fel green which lags me up.

Fire, fire, how I do love thee! I cackle with glee while everything around me burns. Seriously, the AoE and pyroblasts just decimate everything in my path. And this guy is supposed to be my bank alt … hmm …. someone else might be stuck with that job now.

The Scythe of Elune

The lore would have been fantastic if not for the fact that it was the same exact quest as Apocalypse. I mean seriously, no one has even heard of Apocalypse, so how can it have the same questline as the storied and mythical Scythe of Elune?? I understand the reasoning, but I’m sorry, the Scythe deserved better than that.

I also figured out during this one that I was doing the whole ‘cross the spectral barrier’ thing wrong. Apparently I’m supposed to silence his cast from range. The DK just hit his defensive cooldown and ran through it so I was like ‘ok no problem, me bear rawr’ and .. yeah. I mean, it worked, it just wasn’t what the devs intended. Oops?

Rep Galore

September 23, 2015

The Draenor Dungeon bonus event went perfectly with the title of this blog. Even though Van is the one who has the most reputations already, since I’ve been maining Sanbec I stuck with him. Fortunately, a lot of people seemed to be doing them, because the dps queue was only around 12-14 minutes the entire week. I managed to get exalted with the Council of Exarchs, revered with the Steamwheedle Preservation Society, and honored with the Sha’tari Defense. He also got to exalted with two of the three Tanaan factions doing his quests there while in queue. These got me many pets and mounts.

Aside from that, I’m also still working on An Awfully Big Adventure and getting rep on the Timeless Isle. While Van was there this week, there was a lineup of people on Cloud Serpents waiting for Huolon to spawn. Since I still need that mount as well, I joined in the display.

Also this week marks the beginning of Brewfest. I haven’t really paid much attention to it the past couple of years, but this year they added a pet and toy, and there are at least two other toys that I don’t have, so I figured I might as well do some. It really takes no time at all to get 100 tokens, in fact you can do it in one day. Two of the items I need cost 100 and two cost 200, so I’m doing four characters … two of them only have to go for one day and get the 100 token items, and the other two have to kill Coren for a few days to get to 200. No big deal. It’s really faster this way if you have multiple alts to do all of the intro quests on instead of trying to earn all of the items with one character.

Of course, Karius had to stop for a selfie after killing Coren Direbrew.

This week’s bonus event is pet battles, so you can bet I will be out there leveling pets!

5 Down

August 12, 2015

So, with the Legion announcement, I figure it’s about time I finish leveling all of the classes. I already had a paladin, warrior, hunter, and two death knights done. So over the last week while the Faire was in town for carousel buffs, I finished off Karius the mage.

This leaves me with six to go. I have a rogue and a warlock at 95, and a monk at 92. The shaman and druid are both 90 and waiting in their garrisons. Oh. That’s only 5. Who am I forgetting? Duh, priest. He’s also 90 and in his garrison.

Lots ‘o Lovin

February 20, 2015

Yeah I know Love is in the Air has been over for a few days now, but I’ve been busy!

I finally bit the bullet one night and used the new group finder tool to join a group doing the achievement to get the new toy. And I have to say … that thing is SUPER convenient for getting things done! I was very surprised at how easy it was to find a large group and get in on the action within seconds, no waiting.

One person was ‘it’ and went around the circle. As that person went around targeting each person making up the circle, they would use their item on them and either jump or say ‘used’ to let them know they could move on to the next person. The stacks fall off after 10 seconds if not reapplied, thus the need for many people and a good system. The person in charge kept a list of people who still needed to be ‘it’, and would mark the person who would be next with an ‘x’ so that when ‘skull’ was done, they could jump right in and keep the circle moving.

It did take awhile because of the number of people involved but it was easy and actually a pretty good time.

In other news that sort of fits with the theme, Karius and Kalyon finally finished their joint effort to create a Vial of the Sands for my good friend Bocat.

In exchange, she helped me get Alani because she seems to enjoy farming skyshards, but, I don’t have any pictures yet because even though cloud serpent riding is account-wide, the mount still requires August Celestials rep to learn, so Sanbec has been visiting Pandaria to do dailies. :p
