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?

100 x 4

Arelin was already leading the race to be the next 100 before he got the camera. He got the lens not long afterwards, allowing any of my characters to take selfies, but since he’s the one who obtained it, he gets the privilege of leveling and then completing the Field Photography achievement.

Once he dinged, he upgraded his garrison, built his boombox, did Harrison Jones’ quest since he was his visitor of the day, and did normal Skyreach for the first incarnation of his ring. He’s ready to do the heroics he needs for the quest, which hopefully will gain him the 3 ilevel he needs to get into LFR. He decided he wasn’t in the mood for heroics though, and set out to get started on the photography achievement.

His first stop was Booty Bay …

on the way to Onyxia’s Lair.

From there he hearthed to the shrine in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms …

took the portal to Dalaran …

and finally, 3 expansions later, beat up his former master.

Stay tuned to see where he goes next!

Three Posts in Two Days?!?

What the heck? Was there a patch or something?

So, I got a mission to get that darn SELFIE camera. But not on one of my 100s. So Arelin, guess what? I mean, you’re already 97 and leading the pack to be next anyway, but now your fate is sealed. So here is probably the last NON-selfie pic you will get of him. It also shows how sexy he looks. The patch seems to have changed the hair colours so this is as dark as it gets, unfortunately.

Van dropped in to turn over his missions and see who was visiting his garrison, and ended up with the best. minion. evar. I mean really, who’s gonna mess with you when Saurfang has your back?

Stormwing seems to be suitably impressed. You can also see there in the background the new Deathwatch Hatchling from the guild achievement for all CM golds. I’ve never done CMs but fortunately, my guild has plenty of serious people who knocked them out pretty quickly, allowing the rest of us slackers the opportunity to buy this. So my buddy Bocat came over and made a DK so she can get one too. It only requires getting exalted with the guild, which is pretty easy. So once she got to Org I went to visit her and give her some bags because those 12 slot things are just not big enough. We got out the toybox and I bought myself a glyph of play dead and we had a good time goofing off.

Yes, that’s a dead goren wearing blazing wings and blackflame daggers, lying next to a dead clefthoof. hehe

Rag Legs

I’ve mentioned before how much I love recruiting new followers from the Inn. Well, Juna seems to have the best luck. Not only did she get Soulare, but now she also has “Doc” Schweitzer. For anyone unfamiliar, Doc is a character from the comic Flintlocke’s Guide to Azeroth, penned by Dave ‘Fargo’ Kosak before he was hired by Blizzard as a quest designer. If you’ve ever done the Alliance intro to the Twilight Highlands, you have met Flintlocke. Doc is … well, not your normal priest. Juna found him sitting around the campfire by the fishing shack and just had to see what he would say if she decided to talk to him. Well … he’s just a tad bit confused, which is pretty normal for him, actually.

Obviously, he must be kept active. Too dang hilarious. I mean, he’s so dang drunk, he doesn’t even realize he’s in a HORDE garrison, talking to a TAUREN. hehe!

Arelin finished up Talador, or at least, everything he wanted to do there, and is ready to move on to the Spires of Arak. I just felt like getting a good shot of him because, well … I gotta admit, given what some of the other *cough human cough* races’ graphic updates have looked like, I want to remember how good he looks now.

WoWScrnShot_020815_222637

What about the post title, you say? Oh. Yes. Since Van has all of his bro stones done and can’t do the Foundry until LFR opens next week, he only went into Highmaul for the two bosses that drop things he still needs, and then went to play in some old instances instead. Since he never did get Firelord, he went to Firelands heroic and cleared that place out last night, finally getting to see Ragnaros’ feet.

WoWScrnShot_021115_223322

The place is quite easy to solo now, so I guess he’ll be going back for mounts. Or maybe I will send a caster to get the staff … or a druid to get a kitty staff and embers. Hmmm ….
