My Week in World of Warcraft: #9

I know it’s been a few weeks since I posted, well let me tell you, the FLU just isn’t fun. And at my age it isn’t so easy to get over it either. And once I start feeling better it seems like it gets harder and harder to fall back into a normal routine.

Recent Post Update

So if you read my Gold Making Tips: Ulduar post a few weeks ago about farming raw gold in Ulduar, well sad news everyone – it’s been NERFED!

A friend of mine was like “Should you really post about it? You know it’ll just get nerfed.” I was like, why not, it’s not like I have a huge following any ways. I think I may have mentioned in my post, that just that same day I had come across a you tube video with the exact same tips as what I had just written myself so whether I posted it or not the cat was out of the bag.

You’ll notice above they didn’t even bother to fix Elder Stonebark’s texture, which wasn’t broken prior to Patch 8.0, but yet THEY took the time to nerf this measly 3-4K gold for a weekly clear.


I haven’t particularly gone achievement hunting lately but none the less a few things have popped – like I finally finished Family Fighter from Legion.

I had only been needing Corrupted Blood of Argus since before BFA started. But the one time I noticed it was up, it expired before I could get out there.

And I finally finished the first (of many) categories for the BFA pet battle achievement Family Battler. Of course knowing myself, I’ll continue with Humanoids until I’ve checked off ALL of them.

I’m sure there we’re more but I’ll just post an overall screenshot below because I can’t remember.

I ended the week with 26,065 achievements points and 22,050 for my main, Starrefyre according to our guild roster.


I used to be into hardcore raiding but that was years ago. Somewhere around the time of ICC I lost the taste for it, honestly nowadays I just don’t have the dexterity or the stamina for it – and if I’m being super super honest – I don’t have the patience anymore either.

Yet every week I trudge along with my group of casual guildies for what we call our guild progression raiding – not because I want to but because I love these people – and they want to. Many have been with our guild since (or near since) the beginning and to me that means something. I will admit our raids frustrate me. Sometimes I get super annoyed, OK so many times I get super annoyed haha. I’m terrible at healing and only very slightly better at tanking and neither are my best spec but I do what we need done – if I can.

It took us two weeks, I think, past the opening of Battle of Dazar’alor to finish normal Uldir. But that’s not a complaint either, we’re a super casual group so considering our guilds raid history we’re happy to have finished the raid. Ghuun (last boss in Uldir) was awful for us we spent several weeks on that fight before we got him down.

And so far Battle of Dazar’alor hasn’t been much better. So after two weeks of failing to down “The Council of Light” (first boss) as raid leader I decided to pug some extra people for our guild run this past week. I was only looking for an extra healer but I ended up picking up a healer and an extra dps. I think we had ten or maybe eleven guildies and those two pugs — not only did we finally down “Council of Light” we also took out “Jadefire Masters” and “Grong” YAH!!


I saw a video awhile back from AnnieFuchsia about having Collected 97% of All The Things in WoW. She talks about her settings and filters which made me wonder how I compared. OK so using her settings, I’m at 82% not to bad I think — I’ll work on it!!

All The Things 82%

One of my latest completed sets is the Darkwood Sentinel’s Guise gotten from completing the Darkshore warfront & killing Darkshore rares. I don’t really care for this one, actually the only one of these Darkwood set’s I do like is the cloth set.

Darkwood Sentinel's Guise

And the other recently completed set is the Vestments of the Eternal Blossom, which was once completed BUT for some reason Blizzard added a boe belt to the set at the beginning of BFA. Why???

Vestments of the Eternal Blossom


I’m currently showing 55/57 on the appearance tab but if you count all the extra difficulties (and I do) I’ve collected 52/69 PVE set’s and 33/38 PVP set’s.


I know I’ve picked up a few more mounts recently but the one’s that stick out the most in my memory are [Ashes of Al’ar] and [The Swift Albino Raptor] because their so purty.

The Swift Albino Raptor

I had hoped to start collecting the eleven mounts apparently available from Island Expeditions but I just have not found time to do Islands in a couple months now. I DID run the “Love is in the Air” event dungeon more than 300 times this last two weeks but once again no Love Rocket for me. At last look my mount collection is 385/400 – super close to the next meta achieve.

Are you collecting the new hearthstone toys?

My toy collection is still growing, it’s currently 435/544 with my newest editions being the [ Lunar Elder’s Hearthstone ],
[Party Totem], and [Peddlefeet’s Lovely Hearthstone].

Are you saving or spending your new pet charms?

I’m still working towards collecting 1000 unique pets [ Master of Minions ] which rewards the pet [ Hearthy ] currently I’m at 995 unique pets collected. I guess I need to break down and go spend the 2000 new pet charms I’ve been hoarding huh.



  1. I still need more Marks of Honor, to buy more PVP rank 2/3 profession patterns.
  2. I still need to finish the war campaign on my alts for more followers in order to 100% the treasure map mission.
  3. I’ve been putting it off for awhile now so I NEED to run SoB and finish the “Pride of Kul Tiras” quest line.

My Week in World of Warcraft: #4

WHAT DID I DO this week in World of Warcraft?

OK yep this post is a late but better late than never. So I didn’t do much this week really, there’s so much I want to be doing but I tend to start off doing chores and like RL chores aren’t fun. So after awhile I find myself just shutting down and losing that urge to even play at all. OR I find I need a little focus, like Barla got [Ashes of Alar] a few days back and that’s enough to continue fueling my need to run TK every week at least for awhile.


Our guild didn’t do any raiding this past week – just not enough people online. Actually I feel pretty bad about that as we we’re finally down to just needing Ghuun and I was 20 minutes late myself. I was really hoping he would go down now to beat the next raid release. Sadly BFA has just really seen a lot of people lose interest in the game.


I didn’t have much luck with xmog this week even though I did do a few of my normal weekly runs; ToT, SoO, and Ulduar. I DID get a few more pieces of the armor sets and a lovely staff [ Sentinals Branch ] from Darkshore though.


I’m not sure what achieves I got this past because WOW STILL won’t send any tweets out if they have images attached =(


I just realized I didn’t even run any Island Expeditions last week.. oops. But I did manage to add a few items to my collections anyway.

I made little progress on the Family Battler achieve this week.


  1. Buy the REST of the PVP rank 2/3 profession patterns – I need more Marks of Honor.
  2. Do more mythics, because I can’t make raid cauldrons w/o Hydrocore!
  3. Get more followers for my alts to 100% the treasure map mission.
  4. Finish the “Pride of Kul Tiras” quest because apparently it’s required to open Kul Tiran Humans but not SoB… go figure!

My Week in World of Warcraft: #3

First let me just say hello, “It’s Me” and I’m back again – I hope anyway. So obviously my move to a new host did not go as smoothly as I had hoped. Actually it was quite frustrating because it turned out that none of my sites could be migrated to the new host due to the files sizes. Out of aggravation I honestly just gave up. And while I finally have the blog back online you can see somethings are still not quite right – like none of the old images are loading.


OMG my last weekly report was in Sept 2017 at which time I was working on the Balance of Power questline. I’m happy to report I did finish it on eleven out of twelve characters during Legion but sadly that leaves my poor neglected Monk still waiting on the required mythics.

ATM I’ve got six max toons and almost all of which are above 350 now, the one whose not is my lonesome horde toon. I’m currently leveling both my pally (115) and warrior (113) toons.

I have not been doing LFR (ugh) but I have been tanking Uldir, yes I said tanking. I finally broke down and went bear for my guild. We’re just a casual bunch of raiders so as of last week we’ve still only downed 6/8 bosses. But I’m still hopeful that we will finish it before this new raid comes out at the end of the month.

This last week has found me working a bit more on setting up my TSM4 auction groups. I guess I’m hoping that by setting up my groups again I’ll find some crafted items that might be selling. I haven’t been flipping herbs/ore this xpac because I don’t have the gold to keep up on the buyouts. This expansion has been really REALLY sucky as far as gold making. #pleasegivemegoldblizzard

Other than that I haven’t really been playing much this week. It’s not that I’m on the I hate Blizzard bandwagon that’s been going on, especially on youtube, as of late. NO it’s more that some times WoW, BFA especially, is just overwhelming because like there’s too much to do and not enough hours in the day to do it all. And that starts feeling way to much like chores and so after a couple hours of just doing dailies it’s like UGH no more today.

AND if I’m being totally honest I’ve been feeling the draw to play The Sims 4 again. And that is why I pushed to get this blog back online. I’m hoping it will help keep me working towards my WoW goals by blogging about it.


I recently added the [ Finely-Tailored Green Holiday Hat ], the last one I needed, to my collections during the 2018 Winter Veil . This week I ran SoO on a couple plate dps for those blasted shoulders but Garrosh is pretty stingy with em. I also ran ToT and another week without my belt. But my hunter had a little luck in Arathi Highland and got [7th Legionnaire’s Longbow]. I don’t need much more but weapons from there.

Listed below are the PVE sets (on the appearance tab) that I still need to complete:

Heart of Fear – Why Why WHY Blizzard?!? They added a BOE belt to the LFR set [ Feralbark Belt ]. Because not only did they break my set but that damn thing ONLY drops from Island Expeditions and Good Luck with getting it.

Throne of Thunder – I’ve only needed the belt drop [Girdle of Night and Day] from the Twin Consorts for well over a year and no I don’t run it every week but I do run it a couples times a month.

These next few sets are all from Legion raids and atm they are just are not high on my TO DO list. I need both the heroic and mythic sets from Nighthold. I’ve yet to complete even one set out of Tomb of Sargeras, but I am only missing like one item for a couple of them. And I need all but the normal set from Antorus.

As you can see above I’ve completed one of the sets in Uldir but nothing else as far as BFA raid sets go. I’m currently showing 54/57 on the appearance tab but if you count them all (and I do) it’s really 69 PVE set’s and so far I have completed 51 of them.


At last report I was working on [ Now I Am the Master ] and I’m happy to say I completed that one awhile ago. Lately I’ve been focusing on war mode, Island Expedition, and pet battle related achievements.

Pet Battle Achieves – I’m missing one fight [Corrupted Blood of Argus] to complete the [Family Familiar] achieve. I’m way WAY behind on the [Family Brawler] achieve. I have everything from the first couple pet battle dungeons and as of yet I haven’t even started on the new one Gnomeregan. AND I’m slowly working on [Family Battler].

Up nearly 2K from my last report – I ended the week with 25,950 achievements points and our guild roster says 21,955 for my main, Starrefyre.


I’m at 981 unique pets collected and with a little luck on these Island Expeditions that will hopefully get to 1k very soon. And if you don’t know collecting 1000 unique pets [ Master of Minions ] rewards the pet [ Hearthy ] and OMG he’s adorbs!

My toy collection 421/544 is coming along with my newest editions being: [ Toy Armor Set ], [ Greatfather Winter’s Hearthstone ], and the [Twiddle Twirler: Sentinel’s Glaive].

I’m working towards [ A Horde of Hoofbeats ] with my mount collection by farming Ulduar and TK weekly on several alts. Currently I’m at 380/400 my last mount drops we’re from Arathi Highlands [ Witherbark Direwing ], [Lil’ Donkey ], and [ Broken Highland Mustang ].


  • Buy the new PVP rank 2/3 profession patterns.
  • Do more mythics, can’t make raid cauldrons w/o Hydrocore.
  • Get more followers for my alts – got to 100% that treasure map!
