This has been a good month for me so far in WoW.  On June 1 the Northrend Timewalking event came up again, and I finally had enough tokens to purchase the horse I had been wanting, the Ironbound Wraithcharger.


Then of course, the movie came out last week. I didn’t go the first two nights … I’m weird and prefer going on Saturday mornings when it’s light outside and the crowds are smaller. The only option on Saturday morning was 3D, and I had reservations about that, but I went anyway and I have to say, I think it was even better in 3D. I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome the movie was. Granted, there were a couple of things that, being interested in the lore and having read the books, I found to be … changed a little more than I would have liked. But I also understand that those changes made it a better movie, and I’m ok with that. I might even go see it again, and will almost certainly be getting the DVD later on.

One other nice result from the excitement of seeing the movie is that I feel like playing again, even daydreaming at work about which character I am going to level when I get home. It’s been months since I’ve had that feeling and it’s good to want to play again. I even finished my 9th class this weekend.


So Adryen Monk joins the other eight and now all I have left are Druid and Priest. The Druid will probably be my Tauren lady because she is 92 and nearly ready for Gorgrond. My troll is still 89 and so … I don’t know. The priest will probably be my human, even though he is also 89, because then I will have 4 max level characters on each of my three main servers. (I already have 2 DKs at 100 because … well, because I wanted to!) One of each other class will be enough. Van is certainly worthy of carrying Ashbringer, even though I would have loved for Kerick to be the one. I sent Kerick to get a garrison but I just … I can’t play him. I can’t make him look good and the new humans just aren’t him no matter what I do at the barbershop.

Oh yeah, I’m also gonna need a gnome hunter and a demon hunter or two, ya? Hmm … oh well. Gotta finish these last two classes, first.😉

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 ….


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.
