My Week in World of Warcraft

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.

#HappyBirthday2Me

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!

RAIDING

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.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

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!!!

ACHIEVEMENTS

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].

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].

Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lich King

I picked up several new mounts earning [Lord of the Reins].

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.

COLLECTIONS

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.

Heavenly Azure Cloud Serpent

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 profession 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 Mage.
  • I still need to start working on the Chromie Scenario.

So comment below and share what your working on? And don’t forget to follow me on Twitter & Facebook =}

My Week in World of Warcraft

It was Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking this last week. I had planned to take my lowest geared characters through but it turned out I only got two characters through. Sadly it wasn’t even the characters that should have gone!!

I started the week needing the WRATH TW mount, all three toys, and the [Guantlets of the Kraken] for transmog from the Timewalking currency vendor. I ended the week only needing the mount [Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger] and one toy [Hourglass of Eternity].

We had The Soultakers as our world boss this week and my Death Knight got lucky and picked up the frost hidden appearance.. yah!!

RAIDING

So when it comes to raiding, I’m really super casual. I was once in a raid guild, and frankly I feel like ‘been there done that’ and I simply have no interest in progression. When some of my guild mates expressed an interest in moving further into current content I didn’t much like the idea. I still don’t but for selfish reasons, I simply have no interest in progression. If I we’re being honest with myself, I think being casual is great but being casual hinders progression making  it merely a time sink. Time I could be working on something else, I do have a harem of ALTS who need attention!

DAILY CHORE LIST: Hit the class halls to start new missions, complete the daily profession cool downs, post or re-post auctions, and depending on the emissaries up do world quest. Do the PVP world quest as much as possible since I want P2 on all alts.  I also try to haul my leveling horde characters through any invasions that might popup.

WEEKLY CHORE LIST: Do the weekly quest on all my ALTS (unless it’s PVP related). On my main I do the weekly archeology quest and complete the pet battle dungeons. I usually start Tues off killing the world boss on everyone and doing LFR if I feel up to it.

I have personal goals for this expansion, like getting “Balance of Power” on all my ALTS. I want to complete ALL the set’s for everyone on the appearance tab. I want to collect as many mounts, pets, and achievements as I possibly can on my main. All the while keeping my main geared out for normal/heroic current content runs that I might signup for on openraid. But with so much going on at this time, raiding just isn’t a priority for me atm.

TRANSMOGRIFICATION

I had a good week xmog farming!! I started early spending most of Thursday farming old raids. I managed to complete [Vestments of the Eternal Blossom] in ToeS 25N and [Vestments of the Haunted Forest] in ToT 25N.

Friday night a few of my friends came with and we ran mythic Blackhand and Archimonde but no one had luck getting a mount from either. However thanks to Adam for giving me his tier shoulders, I was able to complete HFC M [Oathclaw Wargarb].

I ran ICC 25H, Halion 25H, Dragon Soul LFR and 25N without any luck. I ended the week with LFR mode for Pandslands ToeS, ToT, and SoO. Followed by some Emerald Nightmare, Nighthold, and TOMB. I got a piece here and there but not enough to complete another set.

COLLECTIONS

I did a quick run through Mogu’Shan Vaults 25N and got the [Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent] making my 295th mount. Wooooooooot!!!

Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent

After having such good luck I made the round and hit SHA and Nalak but nothing. I searched around for the Warbringers since I only need the blue eyed Slate Direhorn but no luck there either. These days however, several people are usually camping the spawn spots.

While I was flying about I picked up one of the Pandaria toys I still need: Shard of Archstone. I’m currently at 328 of 438 toys… I really need to make more of an effort on collecting those.

I have this sick feeling time is running out for the Legion. So I need to stay on top of getting my ALTS through LFR this xpac. Not just because the set bonuses might benefit some of my ALTS but because the truth is I want to complete the LFR tier sets now! I don’t want to be grinding away at them in the next expansion(s) like I am for the Pandaria LFR sets. It’s great to be able to go back and complete the old LFR sets but man the drop rate is terrible!!!

ACHIEVEMENTS

I DID a Trial of Valor Achievement run with . It was rough, we spent about 2.5 hours on the three achievements in that raid but we GOT em!

Here is the status of just some other of the achievements I’m currently working on:

Balance of Power: Mage, Warlock, Priest, Druid, Rogue, Monk, Demon Hunter, Shaman, Hunter, Warrior, Paladin, and Death Knight.

I STILL need one more pet for Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the Lick King the Winter Rageling from Hodir in Ulduar. I still need to complete questing in five Kalimdor zones (again). I had planned to start working on all the achieves in Ulduar again since when I completed them the first time it wasn’t on my main {OCD!!} but I keep putting it off.

PEEVE OF THE WEEK

My peeve this week is really kinda personal, not many in-game know I suffer from some major anxiety issues. I’m not sure why but this past week it’s been really bad.

Then again maybe I do know why, I’ve lost both my grandparents {Nana/Papa} this past year so death has weighed heavily on my mind. And I’m about to turn the big FIVE OH myself, this week actually. I miss my mom terribly but she’s been gone longer so it’s my Nana who I sometimes think about calling and then realize “oh yaa” she’s gone.

I haven’t been able to get in touch with my dad in nearly a year – he lives in another state. And my anxiety has kept me from truly honestly going out of my way too call other relatives and find out if he’s ok. He’s always been introvert himself so while he has a phone, he doesn’t really use it. My fear of course is finding out I’ve lost him too – the only man I ever wanted to call my Dad.

Since my mom divorced him (step-father) when I was a teenager I haven’t gotten to see him much. When my own gurls we’re young we would make the trip to visit for the holidays but even that has been quite some time ago. Yesterday was his birthday and we always chat on either his or mine which are only two days apart. So I’ve been fairly depressed having not been able to get a answer to my phone calls in several months.

So just what is my “pet peeve of the week” it’s me! Sometimes I just feel damaged beyond repair and it’s frustrating. It’s like normal things people do everyday without even putting thought into it I simply shut down on. For me sometimes just trying make conversation is like trying to run a 10K in 2 feet of MUD up hill – Impossible.

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 profession 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 Mage.
  • I still need to start working on the Chromie Scenario.
