Eight

April 11, 2016

With the Faire around last week, I figured it would be a good idea to get some more leveling done.  Saturday afternoon I finished up with Madorsa.

That makes 8 classes to level 100. Only druid, monk, and priest to go.

Oh. Yeah. You’re probably wondering how I skipped from 6 to 8, eh? Yeah, I boosted Kriann, the dwarf shaman, with the Legion pre-order. I didn’t document it because, well, it’s a boost. I didn’t level her. Well, I did, to 68, but not the rest of the way. So, she counts, but she doesn’t, ya know?

In the course of her adventures in Nagrand, Madorsa ran across Luk’hok, a rare elite elekk that drops a mount, the Mottled Meadowstomper. Now, he’s level 100 and she, at the time, is 98. Yes, I know, warlock OP etc etc but I didn’t even bother. I mean really, I have 7 other classes at max level right? Ok, 4 if we’re only talking about the server group that she is on, but still … I trotted Van out there instead.

I am totally out of practice with him, but I remembered enough to kill the thing without getting myself killed. So, new and totally unexpected mount!

Aside from all that, I spent yesterday working on my seasonal character in D3 since the season ends … crap, Friday. I don’t think I will be completing chapter 4. First off, in order to even get into my set dungeon, I had to dink around with finding the crimson beta drivers for my ‘legacy’ AMD video card so that the game won’t crash if I try to visit the Desolate Sands. Yeah. Next time I’m buying Nvidia. I might be able to get to Greater Rift level 20 and kill Siegebreaker Assault Beast on T4 by then, but I have to do some research on the set dungeon. That might be too much. Still, for a casual player, I’m happy just to have completed my set. I just need the pants still to have all 7 pieces.

Remind me next season to start running rifts at 60 or so, so that I have a collection of greater shards ready for me when I hit 70. I’m behind now because I have to run 2 or 3 neph rifts to get a shard in between each greater rift. Gah.

Well That Was Anticlimactic

So I finished my ring quest ….

WoWScrnShot_091415_214438

It doesn’t even have a fun effect. And it’s a ring, so you can’t see it … not like the cloaks with their visual effects. Oh well.

Now that I had the ring and its follow-up quest, I went in and killed Archimonde last night. I got lucky and zoned into a group that already had 5 stacks of determination, so it was a quick one-shot for me. I hung around and watched the cinematic and felt … nothing. I thought back to the endings of the previous three expansions that I have been around to see. Garrosh … heck yeah it was exciting to finally put him in his place. Deathwing … that jerk ruined zones that I cared about and burned me to a crisp when I was just out and about trying to … ok, fine, trying to get burned to a crisp for the achievement, but still! Arthas, the Lich King … man oh man. Killing him is still the most emotional and memorable experience that I have had in the game. This? Meh. I could care less.

Now I have all this time to finish up other things. Reputation, achievements, collections …

I’ve got Van catching lunkers for Nate, finishing the Awfully Big Adventure, and getting rep with the Emperor (yes, he’s an expac behind). Sanbec is finishing up the reputations in Tanaan and collecting music scrolls. Several characters are earning seals for the mounts I still don’t have from the Argent Tourney. Add in the 6 classes that I still want to level to 100 and I have more than enough to keep me busy.:)

New Stuff!

February 26, 2015

So how is everyone enjoying the patch? For the collectors like me it has been awesome so far … new pets, new followers, new toys, the jukebox and all of the music scrolls to go find … plenty of things to keep me occupied. There are even new missions that award archaeology pieces. This is good.

Van went to Black Temple for pets, and got frozen in mid-swing in a nice pose.

Between collecting all of the new things, though, Sanbec still found time to finish off that August Celestials rep so he could learn Alani.

Mount up!

As far as the new belf models go … I’m not excited about them but I have no problem with them, either. Much like the Forsaken, they are close enough to the originals as to not distract me while I am playing.

New (old) Mounts!

December 17, 2014

Sorry if I freaked people out yesterday. It seems like it came out sounding like a big deal when it wasn’t. Van moved to the new guild last night and omg, so many people online! That will be strange for awhile. I tend more towards doing things on my own, so it’s good for me to be in a bigger guild like that. I can always play on an alt when I need to be alone, after all.

A few days ago, I figured I would give another try at Malygos. He’s dropped the blue drake for me (even though I had already bought one on the BMAH) but hadn’t dropped the azure yet. I wasn’t expecting it at all, so I almost didn’t notice when it dropped into my bags.

I think this one and the twilight drake are my favorites for that drake model.

Then, a couple of days later, Van got the rare follower mission that awards the old Halaa battle and research tokens. It gives 100 battle and 40 research, so … enough to buy either one of the dark talbuk mounts. The mission only takes an hour, so before long he was headed out to old Outland to collect his prize. Problem … so were a bunch of other people. Now, this in itself wouldn’t be an issue, I mean, Horde outnumbered the Alliance there so the pvp was handled easily. Horde took over Halaa and the guards and vendors spawned. Herein lay the issue, however … the vendor is level, I dunno, 68 or 69. Meaning, a stealthed Alliance druid could moonfire her as soon as she spawned and prevent us all from making our purchases. Srsly, Blizz? You didn’t think this through all the way, did you? I will never understand the satisfaction people get from intentionally being dicks to others. But they do. That druid left eventually, and then a non-flagged paladin used her Gamon toy to turn into a tauren and stand on top of the vendor’s spawn point on a mammoth. Nice try but at least that one didn’t prevent us from obtaining our objective.

I’ve also tried going back to the Timeless Isle to visit Huolon and also took a tour of Pandaria looking for warbringers. Unfortunately, Blizz in all their wisdom made Pandaria, including the Timeless Isle, a cross realm zone. So yeah, the warbringers were heavily camped. Guess I’ll have to wait awhile on those … again.

P.S. Due to Winter Veil festivities, it will probably be a couple of weeks, next year even, before the next post.
