My Week in World of Warcraft

It’s a new week, so what did you do in WOW!?!

What did I do, let’s see I did a very few xmog runs and even fewer mythics but only on my death knight. What didn’t I do, well once again I did not do a single mythic plus, or a battleground, nor did I do the weekly quest on anyone.

Dang AND I just realized, I forgot to run the pet battle dungeons!! I normally do them first thing Tuesday but I’ve noticed I tend to wander off afterwards since they kinda take awhile to do. By the end of the day, instead of having done any LFR or xmog runs those pet dungeons are sometimes all I’ve gotten done on a Tuesday. So this past week I didn’t do them … apparently at all UGH!!

Balance of Power

I finished Emerald Nightmare on my paladin so that’s now three characters that need to quest in Suramar (yuck). I got the death knight ready to start on Emerald Nightmare for essences and my shaman is still ready and waiting to go into Nighthold for nightshards.

Currently my Warlock, Hunter, Priest, Mage, and Druid have completed the Balance of Power quest line for the weapon appearance.

  • Monk: Needs to quest in Azuna.
  • DH: Needs to do EoA & DHT mythics.
  • DK: Needs Emerald Nightmare.
  • Rogue, Warrior, & Paladin: Needs to quest in Suramar.
  • Shaman: Needs Nighthold.

Concordance

With the huge increase in AP Patch 7.3 brought us I’ve decided to focus more on concordance the next few weeks.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

We we’re hijacked! I love the ability to be able to just right click on any party member and request to join the group but it does have its hazards. For example, while headed to heroic Throne Of Thunder I got a request that someone wanted to join our party. Now we’ve had mishaps once to often so we tend to prefer to just do our own thing when it comes to xmog farming, so I didn’t immediately accept.

But then Barla says it must be one of your friends so without checking first (or thinking about the fact that I’m not queued for anything) I accept knowing she’s prolly right since my friends list is kind of excessive. Of course it doesn’t take long to realize neither of us knows this person!

Ok so do we not invite (rude) or play nice, well of course WE play nice because WE are nice people. The new person tells me they could not get past council so I’m like ok not a problem. Only they didn’t exactly say they had just tried!!

So upon entering we’re immediately aware it’s an in-progress instance with 2/14 bosses dead. Seriously not cool, but being too nice I say whatever and we just accept the popup and move one. We go on and kill council only then did I realize were not even on heroic!! Now this is the kind of reason randomly inviting yourself to someones group is just plain RUDE!!

At the end of the week I had an ALT or maybe two complete a set but nadda for my main!

ACHIEVEMENTS

I finally finished those zones I didn’t do after the Cataclysm. But in doing so it made me realize I need to go back and do them again on the other armor classes .. so much xmog I don’t have!!

COLLECTIONS

Imagine my surprise when I got the holy Pally hidden appearance: Lost Edicts of the Watcher while out questing. WooOOooT!!

I picked up 4/5 of the new wild pets from both Krokuun & Antoran Wastes.

I finished the Monk class hall mount quest.

AN hour later, I finished another mount quest, only three left to go!!

The patch introduced a brand new Raiding with Leashes V: Cuteaclysm where fifteen new pets are scattered about five Cataclysm raids just waiting to be collected. I only ran it once this last week (dualboxing) but I was lucky enough to pick up 3 of these new pets.

  • Blackwing Descent (3 pets) 2/1
    • Discarded Experiment – Maloriak x1
    • Rattlejaw – Nefarian
    • Tinytron – Magmatron
  • Dragon Soul (3 pets) 2/0
    • Corrupted Blood – Spine of Deathwing
    • Faceless Mindlasher – Yorsahj
    • Unstable Tendril – Deathwing
  • Firelands (4 pets)  2/1
    • Blazehound – Shannox
    • Cinderweb Recluse – Beth’tilac
    • Infernal Pyreclaw – Majordomo Staghel

My Week in World of Warcraft

It’s a new week in WoW and I don’t know about you but it’s been a slow one for me. I had a list all ready to start chipping away at Tuesday but when I logged in I was like, ugh I don’t even feel like playing! But I pushed through it and went and did both weekly pet battle dungeons – scratching them off my list for this week. Afterwards I just felt like I was drained and decided ok I really don’t want to play today. So my week just went downhill from there, actually I don’t think I played a full day all week.

Patch 7.3

IT’S PATCH DAY!!! There’s so much new stuff coming Patch 7.3 that truly it’s like a new MINI expansion – as if we didn’t have enough stuffs to do now!!

RAIDING

The only thing that even semi qualifies as raiding this week was a really bad Nighthold group. We managed to complete it but it took a full three hours and way more wipes than I’ve seen in NH in several months. Seriously just because your super geared or mythic raiders or whatever does not mean you can ignore mechanics!!! Like, if you have plague MOVE it’s not hard people!!

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

I’ve only needed the dang bracers for the [Sanctified Lasherweave Battlegear] set for quite some time now so I decided I was going to GET them even if that meant I had to take leather wearing character I have through Ruby Sanctum and/or ICC.

I GOT EM!!! It took four characters running Ruby Sanctum but they finally dropped!!

Old sets I’m still farming for include Hellfire Citadel {H}, Seige of Orgrimmar {LFR} & {M}, Throne of Thunder {LFR} & {H}, and Heart of Fear {LFR} & {H}.

I ran [M] SoO with Neall this last week for both alliance and horde. I got lucky picking up 3/4 pieces I needed, so now I’m just missing that belt.

Knowing I’ve been neglecting my xmog farming the last few weeks I queued up for [LFR] SoO & HoF  just before reset this morning but of course I got nothing I needed.

ACHIEVEMENTS

[Inspector Gadgetzan] has been a work on progress since Mist of Pandaria, wow that took forever to finish!!

Balance of Power

With NH done this week, my Warlock was able to finish her Balance of Power quest line. Check out that staff, OMG I love this one!!

So this is number five that’s completed this long quest chain. My Shaman is next and is already on the NH steps of the quest chain.

Currently my Warlock, Hunter, Priest, Mage, and Druid have completed the Balance of Power quest line for a new weapon appearance.

  • Monk: Needs to quest in Azuna.
  • DK & DH: Needs to do EoA & DHT mythics.
  • Pally: Needs EN.
  • Rogue & Warrior: Needs to quest in Suramar.

Brawlers Guild

After last weeks fiasco at the Brawlers Guild I decided to go back again right away. It was the right thing to do to because Burnstachio is down, YAH!! It didn’t even take that long, maybe 2-3 tries at most compared to the hour I spent on him last week.

Meatball

On a roll, I didn’t stop there! I swiftly put down 14 more bosses between rank four & seven leaving only two bosses left to kill for rank  eight. Once that’s done I get to start all over but on the challenge bosses & the new achievements.

PEEVE OF THE WEEK

So WHY can’t I seem to get anything done in WoW lately. Is it burn out? I don’t so. And since I have so much still I’m working on it’s not a lack of content for sure. Actually I think maybe it’s the opposite and there is just TOO much to do!

Even though I was feeling tired Tuesday I didn’t want to just go back to bed so I dusted off my Sims 4. Last time I played I had reset the game so I had nothing I’ve downloaded installed. I spent more than an hour just trying to put my downloads back in the proper places. But while moving around some CC files I some how messed up my files associations and now Win10 won’t let me fix them! I’ve spent all weekend backing up files after System Restore failed. I’m thinking I may need to do a Win10 reset.

STILL ON MY TODO LIST

  • Complete the class hall quest line for all toons. DONE!!
  • Complete the class mount quest for my Monk, DH, Warrior, Pally, and DK.
  • Complete all the Legion profession quests/dungeons.
  • 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.
  • Finish the last four TWO Brawlers Guild ranks bosses for rank 8.
  • I STILL need to start working on the Chromie Scenario.

Transmog Thursday: Mage Sets

Let’s dress up (or down) those MAGES!!

Jessiehealz presents 10 Sexy Female Mage Transmog Sets #2 (World of Warcraft)

This is a World of Warcraft showcase displaying 10 cute female Mage transmogrification gear sets. I must say they are all eye catching but I think I’d probably go for #6 myself.

Jessiehealz presents 10 Badass Male Mage Transmog Sets #1 (World of Warcraft)

This is a World of Warcraft guide on how to locate & obtain 10 cool male Mage gear sets for transmogrification on your characters. Now I must say #2 is really quite unfair to show since it was only available during Mist of Pandaria. However there is another color of this set available in Legion as the mage classhall set. My favorites would have to be #7 or #8 because I just can’t choose one!

HeyImJustin presents 5 Epic And Easy Mage Transmogs To Get For Legion!

Now I’m not sure how EASY these five sets are to collect but they are certainly some nice mage sets.

Another showcase displaying 10 cute Mage transmogrification gear sets with set details all written out for you.

Comment below and share with your favorite mage set. And remember I’m still looking for current url’s for xmog blogs & websites to update my list.
