Another week is gone, my how time flies when your having fun!!
We saw the final wing of TOMB open this last week and lot’s of QQ over the mechanics in LFR mode. I personally only did the wing once myself and of course I didn’t get any good lootz. We did have three stacks of Determination by the end but for a Monday LFR group, I figure that’s pretty dang good.
This maybe a new week for most but for me it’s a new year as well since it was also my birthday week. I have to say I have the BEST world of warcraft guild mates, thank you ALL!
They blew up my mail box with like 500 plus birthday gifts. I got tons of wild flowers, fishing poles, and omg 100’s of bottles of bleach. Larissa sent me the chocolate cake — not as good as the real red velvet cake the kiddo baked me but it’s was the thought that made my day!!
Barla surprised me with a TCG Loot Card I was missing: Bananas. WOOOT! I’ve been watching for this little guy off/on for a couple years now but just hadn’t picked it up yet. TY! TY!
Let’s see, I don’t really think I did much when it comes to raiding this last week. I know I missed a couple raids I had signed up for on openraid and I also missed our guild raid night.
I did take my Rogue through heroic Emerald Nightmare for Balance of Power. And I went with Neall’s openraid group #AchieveMore to normal Nighthold on an achievement run.
I didn’t have anywhere near the luck this week completing xmog sets as I had last week. But I did manage to finish the last Dragon Soul set. I have wanted this set like forever!! It’s my MOST favorite set for my main, the LFR set [Deep Earth Vestments].
I’m currently showing 45/47 on the appearance tab but if you count them all (and I do) it’s really 37/53 PVE set’s.
FUGly Fashion Show
So you might wonder WHY did people send me bleach for my birthday, LOL, well because sometimes the FUGly makes you wanna wash your eyes out!!!
Our guild #EquinoxLlane held a Fashion Show (contest) this last week. The theme was of course the ugliest set you could put together, I wish I had recorded it but I didn’t, my bad.
I made what I thought was a really awful xmog. I started with what I consider the worst Druid set, the ICC tier set then I mixed & matched it with a few other items. Personally I thought it was pretty FUGLY. But the contest judge stated it was too matchy and actually said “not bad” ….. shivers!!!
It was an exciting week for achievements since I finished off a couple of big ones! Thanks mostly to @TheNealls I completed the [Glory of the Legion Raider].
I’ve needed just one pet for months now so I broke down and bought the Winter Rageling, completing [Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lich King].
I picked up several new mounts earning [Lord of the Reins].
And I finished off two more zones [Stonetalon Mountains Quests] & [Ashenvale Quests] in Kalimdor that I’ve needed since the cataclym reset a bunch of old zone quests.
I ended the week with 23,695 achievements points and the guild roster says 19,680 for Starrefyre.
I had a great week when it came to collecting mounts. I started off the week at 296 mounts, needing just four more for the next achieve. So I figured I can do that!!
I made myself the three jewelcrafting Panther mounts I was missing and put a bid on the AH for someones blacksmithing mount [Steelbound Devourer].
My Warlock finished her class hall mount quest and collected the [Netherlord’s Chaotic Wrathsteed].
I parked her out on Broken Isle where it didn’t take long before Lord Hel’nurath popped up. He has a 100% drop of the purple version of the class hall mount [Netherlord’s Accursed Wrathsteed]. But I’m afraid it’s a Warlock only drop, sorry all you none warlock types!!
I finished two more falcosaur pet quest, collecting the [Brilliant Direbeak] & [Predatory Bloodgazer] mounts.
I got the [Grove Defiler] mount from the Legion raiding meta achieve.
And somewhere in all that [Lord of the Reins] completed and I got the [Heavenly Azure Cloud Serpent] mount as a reward.
So I ended the week with TEN new mounts!! Hopefully they’ll add another new mount meta soon but in the mean time my main is showing 352 total mounts.
I also added two new pets to my collection [Wind Rider Cub] & [Bananas]. You can check out my pet collection here, my current status is 837/906 and #18 on the realm.
PEEVE OF THE WEEK
OK my pet peeve of the week is feeling like I’m so far behind on my Balance of Power goals. The reason this is bothering me is as I’ve said before I feel like time is running out for Legion. But even more so I feel like I’m about to start running out of opportunities to even get into normal Nighthold groups.
I’m working on collecting these weapon appearances on ALL 12 of my alliance characters. Yes it’s kind of crazy but hey it’s my goal and I REALLY want those appearances!
Currently I’ve completed it on four characters Druid, Mage, Hunter, and Priest. My Warlock and Shaman need to complete a quest, three more mythics, and will then be ready to begin the Nighthold phase of this questline.
My Warrior and Rogue need to catch up on the Suramar questline. My Death Knight is ready to do the first couple of mythics. My Pally is ready to start the Emerald Nightmare phase.
And for my last two characters, in order to even start the Balance of Power questline the Demon Hunter needs to finish the classhall questline. And the Monk needs to finish questing in Azuna.
STILL ON MY TODO LIST
- Complete the class hall quest line for my
Monk, Pally, DK, and DH.
- Complete the class mount quest for my Priest,
Warlock, Shaman, Monk, DH, Warrior, Pally, and DK.
- Go through all my professional characters and complete the Legion profession quest.
- Farm Underbelly Rares for the Rogue and Shaman hidden appearances. Go for my last hidden appearance for my Hunter from Ursoc. Do TOV on my Warrior for the hidden appearance.
- Get back in there and finish those last four Brawlers Guild ranks.
- I still need concordance on my Hunter(x3), Rogue(x3), Paladin(x3), Death Knight(x3), Warlock, Demon Hunter, Monk, and
- I still need to start working on the Chromie Scenario.
