All Hail the Legion App

September 20, 2016

Last week I had only four characters (hunter, mage, rogue, druid) who had their order hall missions unlocked. That was pretty manageable even without the app. This weekend though I got busy and opened up a few more. I now have 9 characters running missions, which would totally be a drag without the app. I added another mage, a shaman, a warrior, and both priests to the list. Hmm … where are my paladins and death knights?? I need to get on that.

Rozjin and Vozzkaz both went to Highmountain. Arcane felt fine to me, I had no problems. Maybe not as much fun as fire, but certainly more than adequate at killing what needed to be killed. Same with enhance. And as a bonus, Moozy stays on your back when you ghost wolf! The quests take a lot longer when you keep stopping for screenshots though.

Sanbec went to Stormheim. He had less trouble with things than the elemental shaman who has also done part of the quests there. Maybe just because he was my most played character last xpac and I’m less familiar with shaman, maybe because fury warriors are just awesome (even though arms seems to be recommended again as the leveling spec); who knows? So I have no complaints with the class. I do have a complaint about Stormheim, however. In every other zone that I’ve been in, there is a place to bind your hearthstone or a flight path at or near every quest area. In Stormheim I’ve only found one at the camp you’re dropped at after the opening scenario, then WAY over at the village that you go to after two other large blocs of questing. Like you literally do two of the three tests before you find a new place to bind. And with the way travel is in this zone, I really did not want to quit until I had either a new flight path or a new hearth to easily return. Now, it’s possible I’m an idiot and just missed an NPC somewhere along the way. But if not, then I am annoyed at this oversight in design.

Both priests went to Azsuna. I’ve spent more time in Azsuna than any other zone. I’m not entirely sure why I chose it as the starting zone for so many, but it’s so familiar now that I can just get in there, whip out the requisite quests to get to 101, and move on to another character.

After so many, I couldn’t bring myself to start on another though, so I went back to Oranis. He had an order hall campaign quest to return to Azshara even though he had moved on to Val’sharah, so he went back to work on that. Fortunately, part of it was in a bonus area that I hadn’t completed before leaving, so I got to finish that up. Then in the middle of the next part the DDoS attacks hit, so I had to log out and watch football for awhile. Because, you know, the fantasy gods wanted to make sure I saw Adrian Peterson being helped back to the locker room without putting weight on his knee. $#@%%^@

Then there was pirate day yesterday. I hear there was a new toy that could drop from a new boss shark there at Booty Bay. I didn’t even log in yesterday because it was the first night of bowling league. Hey, I have to at least pretend to exercise once in awhile! Hope some of you were able to get it. For me there’s always next year. 🙂

Four More Artifacts

September 2, 2016

I am making steady progress getting through my artifact weapon quests. I generally have about three hours to play in the evening, which is time enough to do two of them a night and take my time about it. So here are the ones I got over the last two nights.

Skull of the Man’ari

This was appropriately full of demons and fel. As for the fights, well … since I’m still just getting started with the changes to the demonology spec, I was glued to my soul shards and pet indicators, trying to get everything in and buffed, and most of the fights were over before I knew it and I was standing there going ‘uh …’

Fists of the Heavens

This was the first one I died on. When I ran back, Li Li had pretty much finished off the mobs that did it. Do you know how embarrassing it is to have that tiny little girl panda showing you up, especially when you’re supposed to be a Grand Master? I think I know who I’m choosing as my successor.

WoWScrnShot_083116_211533

There’s a pandaren in the cafe at the order hall that sings the most beautiful and haunting melody that I could stand there all day and just listen to him. Sadly though, for whatever reason, the monks’ order hall is not a rest area. I hope this is just a bug and it will be amended in a hotfix so that it will be like the others.

Blades of the Fallen Prince

Ok, wth? I mean, I used to main (ok fine co-main) DK and played all three specs, so I figured eh, frost DK, how hard can it be eh? Yeah I started on it Wednesday night and let me tell you, if you don’t know what you’re doing, which apparently I did not, you will have a hard time. I must have died a dozen times. I did make it to the final fight eventually, but it was clear that it wasn’t going to happen so I went to bed and spent part of yesterday studying up on my class.

I went back in last night with a couple of different talents and at least one ability on my bar that I had overlooked. (control undead is your friend!) I died exactly once. So .. yeah.

BTW, that right there is my new desktop background, to celebrate my victory over not knowing how to DK anymore. :p

Seeing Bolvar, er, the Lich King again was both cool and sad. But not NEARLY as shocking as the quest that came after I returned to Acherus with my new blades. I don’t want to spoil too much, so all I will say is that the Lich King wants me to raise a new set of Four Horsemen to be my generals or lieutenants or whatever. His choice for the first horseman blew me away. Like, whoa. Suffice it to say, Kaly jumped quite a few spots on my ‘play this toon first’ list because I can’t wait to see where this storyline goes (which I assume is part of the order hall campaign.)

Doomhammer

Gggrrrrrrrrrrrrawr! My Tirion dies, and Thrall goes off (again) to ‘find himself’? Are you kidding me???

Thrall aside, it was pretty cool seeing all of the other shaman we have quested with in the past. Nobundo, Rehgar, Erunak, etc. And best of all, I got to go back to one of my favourite zones of all time, with one of my very favourite NPCs because come on, who is more badass than Stormcaller Mylra?

This questline was the most fun so far, just because I love Deepholm so much. I got Pebble out while I was there so he could see his old home and hang out a bit. There was a lot more to kill for this than some of the other quests but I really enjoyed it. I’m liking enhancement a lot and will probably play her some more.

WoWScrnShot_090116_202931

I’ll see how many I can get through this weekend. I’ll probably have to break them up into multiple posts next week. I still have 3 mages, 2 druids, the other DK (or 2, but maybe not because I don’t think Kirgra has a 2H in her bags. I might just have Arelin do the blood one, too), 2 priests … I think that’s it. OH! And 2 rogues. And 2 warriors. So yeah … it may be awhile before I do any actual questing, but I’m ok with that. I mean seriously, we’re only 3 days into the expansion, there will be many many more. 🙂

Happy Hallow’s End

October 31, 2014

Whoa, look, two WoW posts in one week!

I did finish up getting my other kitty.

Last night I queued up for UBRS but five minutes into the 20 minute queue I decided I could find something better to do than wait. So I sent Juna to Nagrand.

I looked for Banthar but then decided to look on Petopia first and figure out which skin I wanted. I decided the dark chocolate ones were most to my liking.

WoWScrnShot_103014_213117

That was much easier than stealing a quest mob that people are trying to kill. Yes, with CRZ, there were plenty of people out there questing. I don’t think I will ever like CRZ. Unfortunately, when I looked at the talbuk skins, I decided that Bach’lor was definitely the one I wanted, so … sorry little human paladin who seemed to be also looking for him. I got what I wanted and won’t be back so good luck on your quest.

I went back to the Shrine to deposit some of my pets in the stable, and this other Tauren huntress was standing on the platform with her Bach’lor, so I stood next to her for awhile and got a screenshot.

The other new pet family is hydras, but since I’ve had the ghost hydra Spirit of Atha since back in Wrath when it was briefly tamable, I felt no need to go get another.

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.
