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.

More Alliance Questing

December 10, 2014

Just a couple more shots from Sanbec’s quest logs.

Goblins sure have some crazy ways of travelling.

Since his barracks reached level 2, he’s been taking that silly dwarf Delvar with him on his travels. And because I enjoy matching the mounts, he’s been riding around on the crimson deathcharger.

In other news that does not include screenshots, Van did LFR last night. It was quick and easy and completely painless, other than the long queue. I’ve pretty much decided that I’d take long queues over the stress of healing though. I am content being a nameless, faceless dps. He also finished leveling the Plushie to 25.

One Mount Closer

December 2, 2014

I am almost at the 200 mounts mark. Thanks to my friend Shudal, I am now one closer. All I had left for the 25 man Ulduar drake was the Flame Leviathan achievement. Yeah, the vehicle fight. If it was something where I could just go slice something up with my sword, I’d have been done long ago. Sure, I’ve been told it was soloable and given advice on how to do it but I just couldn’t hack it on my own. So he invited me along when he went to collect shards and we got it done.

I still like the 10 man rusted version better (which I got at the end of Wrath or very beginning of Cata) but hey … it’s one more I can check off. 198 down, 2 to go!

Thanks again Shudal, you’re awesome! :D
