My Week in World of Warcraft

Why do I wait for Monday to really start working on anything!?! So yesterday I managed to do the weekly quest (20 world quest) on all but three characters. I could and should have finished those three but I decided to nap instead. When I returned I ran some horde toons though the invasion and suddenly my internet decided to crap out again. So I didn’t even finish that. Despite the server issues this morning I did at least do emissaries on two of those three characters.

The Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl finally went live. So I wonder who else missed it yesterday? Dang it, dang it, dang it, I really wanted to try that, I did hear it was a blast from those who did participate!

I have the Wild Dreamrunner, which is my favorite of course, but I just haven’t gotten lucky enough to get any of of the other zone mounts yet.

How about you?

RAIDING

I did the new (wing three) LFR for Tomb this week. I gotta say with all the QQ I’ve heard, I expected a typical LFR experience but that didn’t happen and I thought it was fun! Now I’ll admit the group I was in appeared to know about jumping with the bombs therefore no one was blowing other people up.

My guild went into (N) Tomb this week and still wasn’t able to get the second boss down. We also gave (H) Nighthold a shot but only got two bosses down with our remaining raid time.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

I’m happy to say I completed another set this week on my main. The Lasherweave Battlegear from 10 man normal ICC. I’ll be ever so happy when I’m able to really start focusing on my alts. Speaking of alts my pally completed the mythic BRF Battlegear of Guiding Light set this week as well.

For my Sunday xmog run I only ended up getting through SoO LFR mode but still no luck in finishing that set!!

ACHIEVEMENTS

I had planned to hit up Ulduar this week because there are a sh^t load of achievements in there that I want to do (again). Many of them I’ve actually done already but not on my main. Let’s call it my WoW OCD but I want them on my main!! I just couldn’t bring myself to do ULD achieves alone and my friend Barla was locked out on EVERY character so I ended up skipping it.

I did re visit a few dungeons for achieves like Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman. I’ll need to go back and finish up the one with the rats, killed her with only three kitties fed (oops). I visited Trial of the Champion for my last achieve in there, The Faceroller. We ran End Time, Well of Eternity, and Hour of Twilight for achieves. And while it took a couple tries we also got Soul Power in The Forge of Souls which was a PITA! I ended the week with 23,475 achievement points.

PEEVE OF THE WEEK

So Tomb has been open like seven weeks today I think. I’ve done LFR every week sometimes on multiple toons. However I just this week finally got a second tier piece on my main toon!! I know I should be doing some normal runs with my openraid friends but seriously I just don’t know if I have the patience just yet.

Now as far as tier sets I would say maybe the drop rate is off (it’s possible) but I know that’s not the issue, especially since my guildies are getting tier pieces left and right. Zack got THREE just on his priest this week. I don’t really know what can be done to help when someone’s has really bad RNG but man it sucks!!!

Still on my To Do List:

  • Complete the class hall quest line for Monk, Pally, DK, and DH.
  • Complete the class mount quest for Priest, Warlock, Shaman, Monk, DH, Warrior, Pally, and DK.
  • Complete the last five quest achieves for Kalimdor.
  • Complete the Lich King Dungeon Faceroller & Soul Power achieves.
  • Complete a few more Lich King Raid achieves.
  • Figure out what I need to do to pick up the newest class pets!

Transmog Thursday: ALL THE THINGS Addon

Do you find yourself completing old content just so that you can get literally everything for your Collections? Say no more! This new addon: ALL THE THINGS will help you with your endeavor by giving you the ability to track your completion for everything.

This  addon tracks Appearances, Illusions, Mounts, Pets, and Toys!

It’s primarily a collections window that shows you what items you still need to collect. It seems to automatically popup (however it does have a minimap button for turning it off/on) and can be moved and resized. It contains every item known in the item database (ItemDB). Since it uses a predefined database, it computes what you’re missing very very quickly.

You can even right click on groups of items, instances, encounters, difficulties, and tier tokens to pop them out into their own standalone windows:

The addon currently lets you track the following things:

And as you can see above it allows many filters to customize exactly what you want it to track for you. There’s even a Discord channel for this addon: https://discord.gg/gSVsGeb

My Week in World of Warcraft

Auction House Dance Party Aug 22, 2017

Comment and let me know, did you participate in the auction house dance party this last weekend? Did you hear music?

I didn’t get a lot done this week, hardly anything actually. I’m not really sure what’s causing it but it appears my internet connection seems to be dropping. It’s to the point I’ve had to reset my router two or even three times a day. This works for a few hours and then it starts happening again. Maybe my router itself needs replaced?

RAIDING

Ok so with that said as far as raiding goes this last week, it just didn’t happen for me. My guild did give Tomb a try Saturday evening but they only got the first boss down. We may try again this next week but I don’t know because suddenly we’re finding a lot of people just aren’t playing — mid summer slump maybe?

With the interest issues lately I didn’t even bother to post a #weekinwow for last week but my guild cleared Nighthold (N) Saturday within our scheduled three hour raid time. I know that’s not a true feat this late in the game for most but for us it was a first and awesome!

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

I had planned to focus on just leather to start but with my internet issues it didn’t go as well as I had hoped. It was just yesterday I managed to get both my druid and my monk through any and all LFR wings that I still need set items from. My Sunday xmog run was cut short so we only did mythic Hellfire. Of course my luck sucks so I didn’t get anything I needed!! I don’t think I completed even one set this week.

Have I mentioned openraid lately? I love openraid! It’s a great way for people to raid current content without all the fuss of a raiding guild. My favorite openraid events are lead by Nealls. He leads several runs weekly for old and new content. I ran [M] Highmaul, [M] Blackrock Foundry, [M] Hellfire Citadel, [N] Emerald Nightmare, and [N] Nighthold for achievements and xmog with Nealls this last week.

ACHIEVEMENTS

In the last two weeks I’ve managed to finish not one but TWO characters working through the “Balance of Power” quest line.

Frost Mage

Shadow Priest

I finally got the High Dimensional Learning achievement this week. I’ve been stuck on it for the past month or more simply because I would forget about it and when I would remember, it wouldn’t be a Thursday!

So a funny thing happened a few days after completing this achievement. I was cleaning out my bags and just happened to turn away for a few seconds. Next thing I know I was ported to some odd spot on Broken Isles. I’m like WTF?!?

Later I noticed I still had an AP icon in my bags, but just before I went click it I realized it wasn’t for AP it was [Adept’s Guide to Dimensional Rifting] which is the reward for the High Dimensional Learning achievement LOL. Yaa I felt a little silly after realizing I had ported myself.

PEEVE OF THE WEEK

MY gripe for this week is TOMB LFR .. how RUDE is it that most of the time no one rez’s the dead!! Like seriously these wings are super long and only once, ONCE have I been in a Tomb LFR where they waited for EVERYONE to actually get inside the room before pulling the boss!! AND it’s impossible to run back to your body and loot the boss in the time allowed when your next queue has immediately popped up too!

Still on my To Do List:

  • Complete the class hall quest line for Monk, Pally, DK, and DH.
  • Complete the class mount quest for Priest, Warlock, Shaman, Monk, DH, Warrior, Pally, and DK.
  • Complete the last five quest achieves for Kalimdor.
  • Complete the Lich King Dungeon Faceroller & Soul Power achieves.
  • Complete a few more Lich King Raid achieves.
  • Figure out what I need to do to pick up the newest class pets!

Transmog Thursday: Xmog Sets by Spec

Wouldn’t it be great if you could automatically change your characters look each time you switch specs?

YOU CAN!

Open the transmog window, notice there’s an arrow at the bottom (to the left side of the Apply button). Click that and you’ll see the option [Apply to: All specializations] AND [Apply to: Current specialization only]. You have to pay the regular transmog fee’s when setting this up (for each spec) and again if you make any changes to your gear. But once you set it up, your appearance will automatically change when your spec does, and at no additional cost.

VIDEO: A quick guide on how to save transmog sets that change automatically based on your talent specialization.

Happy Transmogrifying!!

My Week in World of Warcraft

It’s Tuesday so time to share my week in and around Azeroth.

I don’t feel like I did much this last week really. I started off slow with killing the world boss on all thirteen 110’s Tuesday evening. Then Wednesday I ran twelve toon through LFR Tomb. And there lies my downfall … my poor hands paid for all that button smashing!!

I wasn’t able to do much because my fingers we’re swollen and aching for several days. I even missed a couple xmog runs with Neall because my hands just hurt so bad. Then I missed Saturday’s guild run when we lost power for several hours during a thunderstorm. I’m really bummed about it because it caused me to miss our guilds  first kill for Elisandre & Gul’dan. AND I needed those kills to finish off another characters Balance of Power!!

I’m currently at fifteen level 110’s that’s including my grandsons demon hunter, but I don’t play on that one beside the weekly world boss.  My toons or what I call my alliance harem includes one of each class, are well on their way to completing the Legion campaign. I have four more that need to finish the class hall campaign, broken shore campaign, ect. All are currently able to hit the new LFR raid wings for Tomb which means they are all above ilevel 860. Actually most are closer to 900 at this point with just one slacker, the monk.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

I completed two more set’s for the appearance tab. The Malorne Raiment which I’ve been trying to get the last item, boots from the Chess event in Karazhan, for months now. Funny thing is while I don’t know how many times exactly I ran my main thru for the boots it just didn’t seem to matter because they would not drop! So last evening I took my #2 druid in for that one more chance before reset and they dropped YAH!!

OK so I figured if #2 is going to have good luck then why not try again with another set that only needs one item. Sure enough Ulduar 10 Mimiron droped my helm token, YAH!!!

I also ran ICC 10 but my luck seemed to have ran out there because I didn’t get anything I needed.

TIP: For faster set completions it’s a good idea to run alts of the same class to collect xmog. Also run all your alts who can wear the same armor type because any look-a-like gear they pick up does many times count for the other classes who share armor types.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I also did some random achievements this last week. I have this small issue when it comes to achieves, I NEED to complete them ALL!!

But not just complete them all, I NEED to complete them all on my MAIN!! So quite often I find myself going back and completing achieves that I’ve already completed on other characters LOL.

I got credit for Loremaster back in 2011 so I have completed questing the old zones but I didn’t go back and re-quest the zones after the Cataclysm. I know, I know, but like I often say, better late than never! So, I finally went back and did the quest again for Thousand Needles, Dustwallow Marsh, and Desolace. I’m not done yet though because I’ve still have at least another handful of those reset zones to go.

I know everyone has been busy busy mount collecting, especially  since the class mounts debuted, but not me. Well, not anymore than I was before is more accurate. It’s not that I’m not in a hurry, I am, then again I’m just not. I’m only six mounts away from the 300 achieve so yaa I am looking forward to that. But I’m also determined to help my Barla to catch up the army of alts so we’re doing one or two mount quest weekly. SO far we’ve crossed off the list: Hunter, Rogue, Mage, and now the Druid as well.

Darkmoon Faire brought with it a new event boss this last week, the Blight Boar Concert. I managed to get 3 of the 4 new achievements completed so far.

I understand you can loot a new toy [Blight Boar Microphone] and xmog items [Leather-Lined Cage Helm] [Necromedes, the Death Resonator] from this event. Note: The new helm is available for all armor types.

Taking this Show on the Road is HARD! The event only happens on the half-hour and takes maybe 5 minutes to complete. The hard part for me was not getting hit by the banshee waves =(

PEEVE OF THE WEEK

First off WHY do ALL classes BUT druids get a CLASS MOUNT!!

Druids did NOT get a mount, we got a new flight form!! Yes it is a two seater but It doesn’t even share with any other druid alts! So Druid alts must do the full class hall mount quest line but no one else does. THAT’S JUST NOT RIGHT Blizzard!!

AND

Hodir still WONT give me the Ominous Pile of Snow. The Winter Rageling pet has been the last one I needed for Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick King for many months now. WEIRD, I could have sworn it was the Boneshard pet I needed, now I wonder how many times I hit Lord Marrowgar needlessly!

Still on my To Do List:

  • Complete the class hall quest line for Monk, Pally, DK, and DH.
  • Complete the class mount quest for Priest, Warlock, Shaman, Monk, DH, Warrior, Pally, and DK.
  • Complete the last five quest achieves for Kalimdor.
  • Complete the Lich King Dungeon Faceroller & Soul Power achieves.
  • Complete a few more Lich King Raid achieves.
