That Makes 8

October 2, 2017

Faire time! Let’s hop on the carousel and get those alts rolling. Pretty epic ding here by Professor Paddey on Coren Direbrew to make priest my 8th class to 110.

He had a couple of pieces of unsullied gear from Kerick’s adventures on Argus, as well as ilevel 885 BoE gloves that dropped for Oranis in Tomb. (I almost said Nighthold, that’s how much I skipped over Tomb of Sargeras. I only just finished it in LFR on Saturday!) I sent him out to do the WQs that awarded gear upgrades for him. He has to do a dungeon to advance his class campaign though, so I’m holding off on those until next week when the Legion dungeon event is the weekly. That also gives me enough time to get him geared enough for heroics.

The other four classes (monk, demon hunter, death knight, shaman) are all at 108 or 109 so it won’t be long. No hurry though, as I’m still working on 3 class mounts plus now Paddey as well.

Speaking of class mounts, Madorsa finally got around to getting her demon horseys.

Or two of them at least. I’ll need to wait on the rare spawn to get the purple one.

Hunahuna the druid is on the second to last stage, the mission. She was stuck on the 3 rare elites for awhile but finished her balance weapon this weekend so I went and got her bear claws. Having had such success with Kerick going prot for Argus, I figured going tank with her should get me past the elites. Even if I couldn’t solo them, as a tank I’d only have to wait for one dps to come help. Well, I *was* able to solo the third one .. barely. I learned a lot by not having any help. She’s looking forward to finishing and getting to Argus.

Sanbec is actually on the class mount scenario. However, Blizzard made the warrior scenario a little more difficult than some of the other classes’ questlines, and I was unable to do it at his sad ilevel, even after going prot. He’s collecting gear and should be able to manage it soon.

Juna is the farthest behind .. or was until Paddey dinged. She is on the stupid Sentinax marks. Easy enough for her as a hunter, I just need to be motived to bother with it.

Four More Weapons

September 7, 2016

Moving on to the next four weapons that I collected over the weekend.

Fist of Ra-den

I’m sure I’m not the only who, when leveling through Pandaria, would have liked to give Li Li and Chen a lava burst to the face. Well, here’s your chance! Going back to the Temple of the White Tiger was appropriately silly and fun. While a great number of the other quests were very dark, this one is maybe a little too lighthearted, but hey, that’s the Pandaren for you.

The Warbreaker

Um … hey … wow. Whatever they did to arms, I’m liking it. Maybe even better than fury right now. And now I get why warriors are dropping out of the sky on Krasus’ Landing!

Blade of the Black Empire

Meh. Shadow hasn’t really changed that much but I’m not really feeling it. And I don’t care that much what the weapon is because it all looks the same in shadowform anyway.

The Dreadblades

Wow, my steath-fu without the extra stealthiness of subtlety is weak. The quest was full of piratey goodness though.

Little Games

May 16, 2014

So, end of expansion, no new content for awhile. How do you keep yourself entertained? I know some people have lists of goals they want to accomplish before WoD comes out. Others log in, can’t decide what to do, and log out again. I’m somewhere in between those two. I have things I want to get done, but I have 14 90s and several other alts still being leveled. So how do I decide what to work on when I’m not raiding? Easy. I create little games for myself that determine which alt to dust off for the day. Let me tell you how it works.

I start in Hearthstone. I only play a couple of games there each day, basically until I win a game or have to log over to raid. If I still have a quest for the class I won with the day before, I’ll keep that class and deck. If not, I’ll choose a class that I do have a quest for, build a suggest-a-card deck, and go. Yes, this means I rarely play the same deck twice and am not likely to ever rise much above my current ranking. But I enjoy the randomness of playing whatever I put together with this method. If I lose, I go back to my quest list and pick another class, build another deck, etc. Whatever class I win with, is the class I play in WoW for that day.

‘But Rep!,’ you say, ‘there are only 9 classes in Hearthstone! What about your DKs and monks?’ Well, if I win with the same class two days in a row, then I play one of those. Simple, right?

Sunday I won with a hunter deck. So I brought out Juna to play. I haven’t devised a method to determine which alt of that class I play, I just let myself pick. If I win on hunter again soon, maybe I will play the other one instead of her. But Sunday I chose her, so she copied Vozzkaz and queued up for some LFR. In six wings, she got a trinket, two rings, ToT pants, and her sha-touched gun.

Last night I won with a priest deck. Priest decks are SO much fun. Anyway, this one was easy to choose because I only have one priest on each faction right now, no multiples. And, uh … I dunno, I just haven’t ‘felt’ Alliance this expansion at all. I did Operation: Shieldwall and some of the Thunder Isle stuff but …Jaina or Lor’themar … yeah. So I hopped on Paddey Dyle. And … queued up for some LFR! LOL. He’d done LFR in the past, clearing ToT multiple times and the first two wings of SoO once. But he’d never done anything from the first tier. So I started at the beginning, just for the achievements. Although, I think this Light of the Cosmos is probably a super trinket for him, even with a lower ilevel than some others he has.

In between queues, I worked on picking up tailoring recipes that he doesn’t have. I recently installed Ackis Recipe List. I’ve known about this addon for a long time but resisted the urge to download because I know me. If there is an easy way to see that I am missing recipes then I MUST go get them. This may still prove to have been a bad idea. Do you know how many Cata gem recipes Van doesn’t have? AAAHHHHHHHHHHH!

I ended the night with a late-night first wing of SoO with Averry, Ruekie, and … I believe Shen. Averry can yell at me if I’m wrong.

So, am I just really weird, or do other players have silly little rules and games too?

LFR Time

May 5, 2014

Friday night I was goofing around on my balance druid, working on her professions, and was just about to log and play some D3 when Prinnie pinged me and asked if I wanted to run some LFR. I figured that sounded like a good idea, so I asked which wing she was planning to do so I could log onto a character that can actually do the one she wants to do. Dyle has been waiting for his turn to get in on SoO from the beginning, so I grabbed him and … what? Who’s Dyle? Oh. Yeah. Dang server change. I keep forgetting. He’s still Dyle in my mind, so I’ve decided that his whole name is Paddey Dyle, that way he can keep the name he’s always had even though it doesn’t appear above his head anymore.

So, we ran the first wing and things went pretty well. I think. I don’t really remember much other than MIND SEAR ALL OF TEH THINGS. And not being able to kill enough things to clear my corruption on Norushen. /sadface

So we queued for the second wing. I ran around on the Timeless Isle while we were in queue. Then just as it popped Prinnie is all, ‘I don’t want to take it! Navi is visiting the server.’ Eh? Navispam??? Well, let’s go! So we dropped queue and headed to Mulgore, where we hung out and danced with Navi for awhile.

Then after she logged off we went ahead and did the second wing. Prinnie bowed out after Dark Shaman because it was late, but I went ahead and finished out the wing so that I would get the cheeve and be able to queue for the third wing next time.

Saturday, I apparently decided that I had so much fun in LFR that I wanted to do more. Except this time, I was on the shaman and was starting at the beginning. No, not the beginning of SoO, THE beginning, like, MSV. She used the same strategy of hanging out on the Isle between queues.

Vozzkaz seems to have AMAZING luck. She started the day with green neck, rings, trinkets, and weapons. The first wing, she got a fist weapon. The second wing, she got a neck and a trinket. In the first wing of Heart of Fear, she got another trinket. Then she didn’t get anything in the rest of that or in Terrace. But she got her second ring in the first wing of ToT, which was the last one I did. I figured six wings in one day was more than enough. She gained 20 ilevel. I think I’m getting the hang of enhance. I got ele boots in a bag in ToT though so now I’m tempted to get her an offspec. But still … spirit raptors! I’m not in a hurry to change just yet.
