Not much, I’m starting to sound like a broken record huh. It’s true I didn’t play a lot but I still managed to finish the weekly quest on everyone. It’s a good thing too because a couple of my toons really needed those resources. I did take my horde druid out to farm honorbound rep a couple times. I’ve still got a good ways to go, last look I was about 6/21K to exalted.
We had to start over in BoD this week, I guess because we skipped a week my lockout dropped off my Raid Info tab – whatever the reason we couldn’t continue. Again we had to pug (several times) to get that first boss down – but we did – and then we one shot both the Jadefire Masters and Grong. We took a couple swipes at Opulence before the night ended and plan to start with him next week.
I don’t think I got any of my usual xmog runs done this week but I did finish another Darkshore armor set [Kaldorei Archer’s Chainmail] the mail set this time.
I was going to add a screenshot of my ATT percentage for the week but I forgot to take one last evening. The server is up now but ATT doesn’t seem to be working, so maybe next week. I guess todays Patch 8.1.5 broke it =(
I managed to sneak in a last minute SoB run last evening to complete the Proudemore questline for the [A Nation United] achieve. Just in time for Patch 8.1.5 to drop today allowing me to make a Kul Tiran human – or did I. It’s odd because the achieve never did actually pop up but both [Loremaster of Kul Tiras] and [The Pride of Kul Tiras] now show completed.
I ticked off another column for the [Family Battler] achieve last week (dragons) and this week I made quite a bit of headway towards both flying and undead.
I just realized I didn’t add ANYthing to my collections this week. Not a single pet, toy, or mount – now how did that happen!
PEEVE OF THE WEEK
OK so if you pug then your accepting that you may run into some total asshats – agreed. But seriously can’t people just treat others how they wish to be treated? I always feel bad for my guildies when we have to pug and some D joins our group and start putting people down – or worse our guild as a whole.
STILL ON MY TODO LIST
Finish the War Campaign on my ALTs, at least far enough to collect all the champions for missions.
Finish the “Pride of Kul Tiras” questline to open the alliance sub race Kul Tiran humans.
Reach exalted with Honorbound rep (currently 6/21K) for the horde sub race Mag’har Orcs.
Reach exalted with Zandalar rep () for the horde sub race Zandalari Trolls.

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!!
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.
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???
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 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.
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.
STILL ON MY TODO LIST
I still need more Marks of Honor, to buy more PVP rank 2/3 profession patterns.
I still need to finish the war campaign on my alts for more followers in order to 100% the treasure map mission.
I’ve been putting it off for awhile now so I NEED to run SoB and finish the “Pride of Kul Tiras” quest line.
What was the HIGHLIGHT of your week? Comment below and let me know. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter & Facebook.
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.
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.
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!
So it was TW Cataclysm this last week and of course once again I let the week get away from without TW on anyone. I’m never gonna finish collecting those mounts this way!
And dang if I didn’t also miss Pirates Day!! I wanted to have a pirate trivia nite with the guild. /cries
It’s BREWFEST … yah, no. There’s nothing new this year that’s pretty disappointing if I say so myself.
Balance of Power
My Shaman finished her Balance of Power this week.
Currently my Shaman, 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 Emerald Nightmare.
Paladin & DK: Need to quest in Suramar.
Rogue & Warrior: Needs mythics.
I’m still just a little short on having concordance on every character and every weapon.
These are the set I still need to complete: Heart of Fear, Siege of Orgimmar, and Tomb LFR sets. Hellfire Cutadel, Nighthold, and Tomb Normal sets. Heart of Fear, Throne of Thunder, Seige of Orgimmar, Nighthold, and Tomb Heroic/Mythic sets.
I’m currently showing 47/50 on the appearance tab but if you count them all (and I do) it’s really 58 PVE set’s and so far I have completed 41 of them.
I did a little more cleaning up on achievements that my main didn’t complete herself. And in doing so I learned I’ve got to go all the way back to doing Pandaria Tiller daily’s! Why?
Because I never got the young Nomi on my druid whose always been my main except during MoP in which case it was my Mage. So back to the grind of collecting Ironpaw Tokens so I can buy the [Cooking School Bell].
It looks like I’m going back to Stormwind for the daily cooking quest as well. At least that will be a short grind because I only need 4 recipes. LUCKY me, I got over there and had just enough Epicurean’s Awards to buy all four recipes I was missing.
I ended the week with 23,880 achievements points and the guild roster says 19,980 for Starrefyre.
It was world quest bonus week in WoW this last week so I jumped on the chance to pick up 5K class hall resources. I did all 20 world quest on ten out of thirteen characters. So yaa I didn’t finish them all but I got the one’s who we’re the lowest on resources so I’m happy.
Blizzcon Tickets went on sale!! The goodie box and virtual ticket in-game goodies we’re announced!! IF you missed it, go watch the BlizzCon 2017 Pre-show Livestream Global Event video HERE.
Balance of Power
I had the worst luck this last week! It hasn’t taken more than two weeks to get all 20 nightshards since before they made changes to the drop rate back in like Patch 7.2 I think it was. My shaman went into Nighthold needing 10 nightshards and came out sill needing 2, not a single cluster the whole run!!
My death knight finished Emerald Nightmare and needs to quest in Suramar now. Speaking of Suramar, my rogue and warrior completed that this week and need to go through the SIX mythics before starting NH. AND My demon hunter completed the two starting mythics and is now ready for EN.
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 Emerald Nightmare.
Paladin & DK: Needs to quest in Suramar.
Rogue & Warrior: Needs mythics.
Shaman: Needs Nighthold.
I made some real progress on concordance this week. I finished hitting concordance level 1 on SIX more characters on ALL weapons. OF course the jump in AP with Patch 7.3 is what had made this huge push successful because I’m still not farming AP.
I’ve been doing the keto diet these past few weeks and because of that I’ve had some nasty headaches so didn’t do much xmog farming this last week just a quick mythic HFC and BRF with the guildies. AND nope I didn’t finish a single set =(
OMG, I also didn’t do any achievement farming this last week! Shame shame on me …
I spent a few hours on Argus and while questing I tagged a couple rares and got LUCKY! I was in Mac’Aree and like I always seem to aggro this rare Instructor Tarahna every time I get anywhere near that zone. We’ll this time it was worth it because she gave me the toy Yellow Conservatory Scroll
