Double Agent

So, now that Van is past the Golden Lotus to revered grind, he’s been having a little more fun with dailies. He doesn’t get bored because he rotates them. You see, the August Celestials have four different quest hubs, one at each of the temples. So, he bases what dailies he does on which hub the Celestials want him to defend. If it’s at Cradle of Chi-Ji he does Anglers. If it’s at Temple of the Jade Serpent, he does Cloud Serpent. If it’s at Niuzao, he does Shado-Pan. If it’s at White Tiger, he does Klaxxi. And if it’s at the same place two days in a row, he’ll do Golden Lotus instead. So yeah … sure it’s slow, but it keeps it halfway interesting.

So yesterday after he did his stuff in the Jade Forest, I decided I wanted more to do. So I said, yeah, it’s time Kerick got to 90 and started dailies. So I logged him on … oh boy, he has a whopping 2% into level 89. But full rest xp. So after harvesting his measly four crops, he headed to the Spine to get his assignment into the Dread Wastes. O.MG. I mean, the quests weren’t hard. Ret survivability is pretty dang good (esp if you’re really a healer and care more about your health bar than your damage) and I make use of repentance and don’t overpull when I’m undergeared. But geez … Van was 90 when he went there, and the ability to fly really makes getting around a lot easier. But meh, I managed. Rescued a whole bunch of paragons and stuff and even did some dailies. Had fun with a leviathan, too.

By the time I only had the brewgarden hub left to do, he was sitting at 97%. Yay rest xp! But … I wasn’t feeling up to riding over there on my ground mount. I knew I could find a much better method for the ding and screenshot.

Zari, Fayle … this one’s for you!

And yes, after buying flying and doing Tillers stuff (omg I can pick up dark soil YAY) he did go and start on Golden Lotus. Now I just gotta get enough gear to go to the guild LFR on Saturday …


Klaxxity Klaxx

The Dread Wastes. My final stop in Pandaria. Well, not counting that Golden Lotus grind in the Vale but … yeah … it’s the final stop for the Loremaster achievements.

It’s actually a pretty cool zone. VERY different from the rest of them. Which is to be expected since it is the home of the insectoids. Despite the fact that I was 90 and could fly, I allowed Kil’ruk to fly me to Klaxxi’vess and tell me more about the Klaxxi on the way. It was pretty amazing and well worth the extra time it took compared to flying on my own. This will make great Hallow’s End wallpaper, no?

While you are there, don’t forget to look up at the sky once. It might make you dizzy, though!

I did finish off the zone last night and get my Loremaster of Pandaria achievement. It has many other interesting things that I haven’t mentioned, these shots are just from my first visit!

Two points off of LFR score now, so hoping to get that taken care of and run over the weekend. And start leveling Kerick. He should go fast for the first little bit with full rest xp at least.
