Random Tuesday Mutterings

Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week.

I’m rather excited that 7.2 is out tomorrow. I’m planning on going to bed early tonight so I can jump up early and do the scenario and initial quests before work. I feel a bit unprepared in knowing exactly what I should be doing in 7.2 but I’ve completed the pathfinder ach, have all the reps at exalted and have been stockpiling order hall resources on Z for quite a few weeks now to be able to use for the new order hall advancements that are coming. So we’ll see what happens.

This week I  finally finished my Shaman order hall campaign. I’m still disappointed there’s no more achievements after finishing 5.

I was stuck for ages looking for the last Blood of Sargeras to hand in for the last order hall quest.. only to find that while the quest text says you need 10, the hand in amount to the quest guy was only 5. I feel that updating the quest text would have been a nice addition to a hotfix sometime in the last 5 months!

She also got flicked to Resto to head off and do some dgns as I had a few quests in there and I got seriously sick of waiting for dps queues. I think I’ll stick with her as resto now and start dropping the rest of the AP she gathers into the healing weapon. I really love the restoration weapon, the shield with the waterball is just gorgeous.

Hell affix week turned out to not be quite so hellish as you only needed to do a mythic plus 10 not a 15, to obtain 905 gear from the weekly order hall chest, due to the transition between 7.1 and 7.2 tomorrow. So both my Druid and my priest went off to complete their 10. My priest in particular was incredibly lucky this week, getting a ton of achievements and getting a pair of 910 gloves out of the weekly bonus cache and then picking up 2 legendaries only a few days apart.

Huge thanks to E, Dys, Gimme and Juls who came along with me to my 10 depleted Vault just so I could get the achievement before the level of the mythic increase tomorrow. Utterly cheating I know.

I nearly cried when the first legendary she got was the Velens trinket, because I’ve wanted that on Z for ages. The second was a belt which apparently is quite useless but as I can’t equip 2 legendaries anyway it doesn’t really matter and when I can, I’ll be replacing an 850 belt with a 940 so not a complete loss.

Z hit Prestige level 1 and got a little pet out of it which was awesome. Now I’m on a prestige hunting phase and spending a bit of time ducking in and out of battlegrounds.

But omg queuing bgs on my own makes me sooo  cranky. I was healing a demon hunter who had the flag, in the flag room of Warsong Gulch in one of my bgs and he had 4 chances to cap the flag and he didn’t cap even once and we lost the match. I was pretty much shouting at my screen the entire time. I’m sure he must have been an alliance queuing with the buff to make him look like a horde.

And I found out that my new guild records their kills on our fights too. Naz linked our Spellblade kill to me with comments about how excited I sounded at the end ;p

See you all in 7.2 tomorrow!

This has been an odd week, it feels like the week has lasted forever yet I don’t really feel like I got much done. Possibly because on Saturday I bought a new pc so it took most of my day going and getting it and setting up and then starting to install everything back on it. It’s absolutely gorgeous and cycles through a rainbow of lights (yeah because that’s the important thing).

I need a new keyboard and I’m really eyeing off this one. It’ll match so beautifully.

There also wasn’t a great deal of raiding this week though I did go in on the Trillax kill on and got my mythic ach! That fight didn’t really feel very different at all from heroic so at least it wasn’t a huge learning curve for me,. Now Z is sitting at 4/10M which makes me really happy.

Then we started on Krosus progression. We spent the rest of the night seeing how we would go 4 healing it and we got the boss to an awesome 11% on our best attempt but we hit enrage. It was decided to drop down to 3 heals next 2 nights. I was the healer sitting so I spent the time fishing and watching the fight via one of my guildies stream. It only took 2 nights and Krosus fell over. The guild’s now 5/10M which is pretty awesome. It was mentioned I’d be brought in next week for the ach which is a little scary. I think I’d prefer another week to make sure he’s more closer to farm lol.

The upside of fishing so much was I picked up the pepe fishing bobber head toy and I got a ton of the rare fish to be able to start towards the fishing artifact.

We started Spellblade progression last night and spent most of the time working out how to handle the Mark of Frosts really well and by the end of the night we were fairly constantly progressing in to phase 2, still a long way to go until we’re even near a kill. I get so nervous before each fight worrying about whether I’ve learnt the strat well enough, will I stand in avoidable shit and mess up, or what if a random ability comes at me and I panic.. raiding will kill me if I don’t learn to calm down.

 

What a messy fight this can be! But it’s an awesome dance. I’m on mark of frost soaking duty with Dec, one of the warlocks so it’s fun making sure we coordinate to be where we need to be. By the end of the night my notebook was covered in diagrams and scribbled notes.

I decided to take some time to go explore more of the broken isles, I’m sure I’ll probably be well and truly sick of that area by the time 7.2 is in full swing. I told a friend I was going to go solo the world and he didn’t believe me.. so here you go BT, “Z soloing the world” ;p

I was actually phenomenally pleased with myself that I could kill a 45mil health mob.. so pleased with myself that I decided to go take on 83mil health mob.Yeah that didn’t work so well and I ran away in the kitty form of shame before he could stomp me into the ground.

And I went back into Kara for my 5th time. I still can’t believe I’ve done it such a tiny amount of times but I have this massive mental block that it’s a horrible place that will keep me in there for hours but it’s actually really fast. I should be in there each week really because until the nerf comes in 7.2 I’m still trying to get a better than 860 Drape of Shame.

It was a long weekend and I had no plans so it meant a lot of time on WoW. I hardly did anything on Z outside of raiding this week, though there was a lot of raiding. I think I ended up in Nighthold for 6 out of the 7 nights this week. There was the 4 nights of guild raiding, then pugging into a normal for fun and AP, and then I jumped into Toco’s guild alt run at Gul’dan as an extra healer, and then my new guild did a normal run and took some seriously undergeared alts so they really needed an extra healer. It ended up as a heck of a lot of Nighthold. Thank goodness it’s a pretty raid.

I left getting a mythic 15 dgn done right until the last-minute before reset but really nicely, Dys and some of my Deadline guildies pulled a run together to help out this evening and we did boosted  a key through Court of Stars, Eye of Azshara and then into  Darkheart Thicket 15 so I’ll have the cache tomorrow morning. It was really awesome running with them again. Even though I made the choice to change guilds, I really do miss a lot of my old guildies so I had a lot of fun being back on discord with them.

Besides all the Nighthold, there was a lot of time on alts.   First up I finished levelling my Shaman, so she makes number 6 to max level and I’m working on finishing up her campaign.

Shaman’s have the best order hall, it’s really gorgeous and there’s so many toys you can buy from the vendor as well as the pet from the pet battle. I found a cool Shaman puzzle game in the class hall and finishing it gave me a lava toy and that was the last toy I needed to get to 300 toys. (In full disclosure I completely cheated and found a youtube guide on how to click the totems in the right order to complete the 5 rounds for the puzzle).

 

I’ve also had a lot of time on my priest this week as I’m starting to gear her up as a viable raiding alt. The gear isn’t the biggest issue, it’s getting enough AP to get her weapon up to at least 35. She’s actually not that far from hitting 35 on her holy weapon now (I haven’t dropped any AP into shadow/disc weapons so far) but because gathering AP takes a while, I’m back to running world quests and dungeons. She ran her first mythic plus on the weekend and  I’m always trying to hit friends up to come and run dgns with me as I much prefer running them with friends.

It was fun to go run a few dgns with Toco and Wolfz. We all met when I joined their guild in Warlords for mythic raiding when Deadline was on a break. Their guild died a few months ago so they both went to Jubei-Thos to raid elsewhere. Thank goodness for bnet and cross realm as I could keep in contact with Toco. Toco and I both play healers so it’s fairly rare we get to go do dgns together. Cafa’s hiding at the back but he’s still in their orignal guild on Barthilas.  I really like how WoW can feel like such a small world at times.

Now the Druid tier sets are complete, I decided to start on the priest  and managed to get all the pieces for the incarnate tier as her first full set. I’m lucky I have a backup level 92 priest besides my max level one as she can help run old raids for the missing pieces.

 

I was really impressed to see that the developers have finally added a port back down from the Lich Kings room in ICC. I run it fairly regularly so was really surprised to see the addition when I popped up there this week. It’s probably been there for a while but I’ve manged to miss it until now.

Once you port down, there’s a portal to Dalaran as well as one to back up the top.

Z got a quest from her last Kirin Tor cache to go talk to random npcs around Dalaran. Once I talked to them they turned hostile and some into demons. I had to kill them all and as quest reward,  I got Khadgar as floating head pet to follow me around!

When you talk to him, he’ll give you a random answer. I really like having Khadgar floating around over my shoulder, he’s quite adorable.

And the most exciting part of my week was getting to be a guest on Reins of Azeroth. Reins is run by my most amazing friends, Cinder and Spazz, and Sirius  who does the awesome art for their show.  They were talking all things blogging on their episode and had me come along to chatter too. That’s so sweet of them.

Look at the gorgeous art Sirius did! My troll looks awesome! Sirius was talking about liking drawing the leaves on her dress and they look so good. I really like my troll!! Thanks Lovely ❤

Obviously I adore Cinder to pieces, being my best friend, but I really enjoy chatting to Spazz and Sirius too. I got to meet both of them in November  last year when they were down for Pax and we all went out to dinner. It was an awesome night full of wow chatter!  It’s a long episode because the 3 of us sure can talk but I had a lot of fun recording with them.

Huge thanks for having me guys!

And that was my week in WoW.  How was yours?

It’s really been a week of alts this week. I finished off my Demon Hunter campaign, which was really awesome and gave me the achievement for finishing 5 order halls.

February was DH month, and March is turning out to be Shaman month. She’s halfway through 108 atm so she should hopefully hit 110 by the end of the weekend. I really wasn’t enjoying enhancement so I went and collected her other 2 artifacts for Restoration and Elemental. Running around questing as Ele is a lot more fun at the moment, though I miss my ghost wolves that Enhancement could summon to help attack. 

The Shaman order hall is quite pretty and not quite as much of a maze as I thought at the start.

I’ve found a couple of Shaman only quests out in the world now. I don’t remember seeing Druid only quests on Z so I wonder if I just did them without realising or if class quests are  a Shaman only thing.

In an absolute coincidence I got to go see Thunderaan the Windlord two times this week, which was pretty cool as I’d never actually seen him before. Twice had been working on the Thunderfury legendary quest line on his Demon Hunter and he needed an alchemist to transmute arcanite bars. I took my hunter down to Gadgetzan to learn the recipe to make them then I went over to Silithus to see him summon Thunderaan and get his Thunderfury and ach.

Yes, I completely cut the head off the Windlord in this photo.

Then, my Shaman campaign started talking about needing Thunderaan’s help with the burning legion and sent me to track him down after some evil mortal had defeated him.. So I trotted off to the Vortex Pinnacle and up he popped. This time I got his head in the photo.  Lucky he didn’t seem to recognise my alt’s hand in his downfall the previous day and there were no hard feelings.

I seem to have hit the end of the campaign quests now until I reach 110. I always expect there to be a quest continuance at 108 but so far there hasn’t been on any alt.

I looked at my collections tab and realised I’m 10 away from 250 mounts and 10 away from collecting 300 toys. Since toys are way easier to collect than mounts I decided to make that a bit of a focus and go find the easier to collect toys I didn’t have.  I had enough pet tokens in various alt’s bags to combine for Z to go get Narcissa’s Mirror which lets you turn a companion pet into a mini you.

I actually think it’s a little creepy in a cute sort of way to have a mini me following me around. I’m not actually sure how much I’ll use this toy. I ended the week at 296 toys so I’ll have to do a bit more searching to find another 4 easier ones to get. Easier as in, probably profession based toys compared to having to kill a rare over and over hoping it’ll drop a toy. I was pretty lucky that the archeology quest this week also gave a toy as the reward as I haven’t done it before.

I finally gathered up enough AP so that Z’s resto weapon is all maxed out until 7.2 so there’s no mad rush to have to gather AP. Now I need to decide which of the 3 weapons to put any collected AP into. I’m thinking I’ll probably dump it all into the boomy one until it hits 54 as well.  

And that was pretty much my week in WoW.

It feels like it’s been  a relatively quiet week in WoW. I don’t think I’ve got up to much out of the ordinary. Z’s sitting at trait 53 so there was quite a few mythic pluses done over the week to gather up more artifact power. She only has 2 mil to go and then I can stop the serious grind for a bit and just gather AP as it comes my way. I only did a 15 this week, I didn’t really feel like pushing higher keys and a 15 does give good loot. Maybe next week I’ll try for a higher key.

I ran some old raids and picked up a few achs. AQ 40 gave me the last bit of rep for Brood of Nozdormu, so now only 9 reps to go! I also got a new transmog out of there and only have Tier 2 to go and my order hall racks will be full.

brood-of-noz-ach

I also ran through some old WoD raids with Twice and Kublas and picked up two new titles and a few extra achs.

I’ve been working on my Demon Hunter’s campaign and I  was super excited to see a Vikings reference in the quests for it. Lucky I’m only doing it now because a few months ago I had no idea of the series and I wouldn’t have got the references at all. Funny enough I was actually watching one of the new episodes while doing the quest!

A couple of weeks ago I want into SOO with Kublas  and he tamed Thok, so over the weekend we went back so I could also grab him for my own. He’s so adorable as a mini dino. I want to find a blue flashy transmog to match him.  thok-pet

On one of my pugs into Heroic EN this week (I really do like that raid), the hidden appearance for bear dropped! Now I have all the hidden skins for the 4 Druid specs so I’m pretty lucky.  I really like the hidden appearance for bear, in its little cage of bones.hidden-bear-1

The hatching of the Hippogrpyhs was on so I popped down with Toco as we were both on druids and had the easy port into Feralas! I got my hippogryph baby and picked up the item that made it last the extra days. It was really awesome having it travel around with me and so  super cute how it sat on my back in cat form.

And ever since I’ve started paying attention to the Star Augur scenery I’m still seriously blown away by how gorgeous it is.

This week I’ll have to try to get some better screenshots and ones of the void infested planet as well.

And that was my week in WoW. Let’s see what next week brings.

How was your week in WoW?

Whee, this week has gone by so fast. It’s been busy with running lots of alts through the Love Dgn, but there’s actually been quite a few times I’ve missed some. Z hasn’t got nearly enough love tokens for all the new toys so I’ll have to do some grinding with her on the weekend.

The highlight of the week was completing a Court of Stars 16 Mythic Plus in time, which gave me the Keymaster Achievement. It was a messy ending but we still got 1 chest out of it. That’s the highest key I’ve done so I’m pretty happy even with being dead at the end.

keystone-master

I really do love healing mythic dgns, I’ve said it so many times that I’m probably a broken record by now but mythic plus dgns have got to be one of my favourite additions this expansion.

I completed the remaining mounts from the Falcasaur pets and opened up the Talon’s Vengeance faction which works similar to the bloody coins from the timeless isle. It gives you an item that turns you hostile to everyone and when you kill players you get a coin. I don’t know if I’ll do much with it but there is a mount for 10k coins and it’ll be next to impossible to get that outside of this expansion, becasue there won’t be enough ppl in the Broken Isles,  so I may give it a go and see how hard it is.

I’ve been playing around a bit more on my DH and she’s 106 now. I was out in Azsuna on Zee the other day and ran past a quest giver randomly standing around and when I accepted the quest it was for an inscription chain that gave me the tattered wings glyph for a demon hunter.

wowscrnshot_021417_182831

So now my demon hunter has tattery wings to glide around on!

And the best bit of being a demon hunter.. getting to stand around in odd places that double jump lets you reach.

wowscrnshot_021417_184915wowscrnshot_021417_184954

I was a bit frustrated on Monday night because I was really looking forward to going back into NH and having another go at Gul’dan… but no one logged on. It was understandable I guess being an off raid night but we were sooo close at 13%, I really hoped enough people would be keen. So I was moping around on Z, being a bit of a misery guts, when I noticed Leeta was queing for the love dgn , so I invited myself along and then we changed onto numerous alts and I ended up having an awesome night. We jumped onto vent and chatted as we went through our alt lists and matched up toons to give us fast queues. I have the most awesome friends and  I reminded myself that this game is much more than just raiding.

leeta-and-zee

Just before reset I popped in Karazhan with guildies. It’s such a fast run now. I didn’t get any loot but I did get a whole lot of AP which at this point is almost more welcome than loot. I really want to get to 54 so I can stop grinding AP on Z and go play alts more.

wowscrnshot_021417_222820

And I found out that the Arcanist’s Manasaber can fly when you do the Magic of Flight for Kirin Tor wq. He looks so cute in his bubble!flying-in-broken-isles-sort-of

And that was my random week in WoW. How was yours?

 

Random Tuesday Mutterings

It’s another Tuesday and the end of another WoW Week and this one has been as random as most weeks are.

Z found this awesome deserted painters spot up in the mountains in  Azsuna. I’m not sure where the artist went or if it’s a spawn thing but it’s a lovely spot up on top of a mountain.

wowscrnshot_020717_202130

Z got her 4th Legendary and it’s not too bad. The boots make Tranquility heal 50% more when people are below 50% health so it’ll be very handy on progression fights but not so useful once we move into farm bosses where there’s not as much damage.

tranq-boots

I’ve been expecting to get one for the last 2 days as I usually measure my legendary progress off when Twice gets his and he got one 2 days ago. Since Legion dropped we’ve been doing our emissaries together daily  and we run a lot of dgns/raids together and we’ve both received 3 legendaries each in that time. I’ve always gotten mine 1 or 2  days behind him and this one was no different. It does make me wonder how it works though because if it’s content based and he does more mythic pluses than I do, we shouldn’t be keeping up with the same gap between us receiving legendaries.

I found even more cool things to buy in my Shaman Hall. Not only do Shaman’s get a pet battle that lets them have a new pet they have 3 toys they can buy. The elemental familiar (it spawned a water one though I wonder if it’s random each time), a water orb to spin around their bodies in resto spec (yay water shield is back) and a Cobra totem.

I’ve been really focusing on doing a lot of pet battles and finished my first Family Familar progress achievement, killing 12 of the Legion pet battle trainers with all Aquatic pets. I also completed 30 different pet world quests which gave me the ability to hold 500 more pets which will be handy as I hit the level of 1000 a few days ago and had to start caging/releasing some of my duplicates.

I’ve been working my way through the last 3 remaining Falcasaur pet quests to turn them into mounts and I think I’m getting fairly close to the end of most of their quests. Of the 3 left, 1 wants to go kill Xavius, 1 wants to kill Krosus and 1 wants to go do pet battles somewhere still, I think he’s a bit behind on his quests, though he does have a pretty flower hat now to make up for being a bit behind the others.

wowscrnshot_020717_233441

I also did a couple of Heroes of the Storm games with Wingy tonight. Starting on the 14th of Feb, if you do 15 games in Heroes of the Storm on a Warcraft character partied up with a friend, you’ll get a mount in both WoW and HoTS. I haven’t played HoTS in ages, but it was quite fun playing again.

screenshot2017-02-07-21_19_12

I have Sylvanas and Li Li levelled up quite a bit so I’ll use them to play the games and hopefully we can find lots of friends that will be playing as well to make the 15 games go quickly.

And that was my week in WoW, I’m really looking forward to the coming week with hopefully lots of WoW playtime ahead 🙂

How was your week?

 

Random Tuesday Mutterings

Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week.

I finally got around to collecting the last pets from the Broken Isles which gave me the Rescued Fawn as a reward. He’s sort of cute and he has the best leaping and bouncing animations that come out every now and again.

My mage opened up her Frost weapon (which I now wish was fire, so I have to wait 2 levels) and finishing that quest tidied up her class order hall. The mage hall is really pretty and I love the balcony that looks over Dalaran. I wish you could jump off it though.

I laugh each time I open up an alt’s order hall though as there’s always something glowing to say about their prowess.. obviously they don’t know my toon that well to sing their praises. At least this one didn’t go overboard.

I’ve been playing around with the Lunar Festival dragon head toy and had so much fun when I realised you can mount flight path mounts still with it on you. And then I went questig and found that riding on Malfurion’s back didn’t break it either. Trying to cast any ability or use my own mount did though.

And I finally found a pet battle that the Elekk Plushie, which has no offensive attacks can win.

pet-fight-for-the-elekk

Rocko is a world pet battle and he basically self destruct after 9 rounds. All the Elekk plushie had to do was wait him out and stay alive.

The rest of the week was taken up with running cata dgns for rep with the Earthen Ring and lich king dgns for rep with The Sunreavers. The Sunreavers are exalted, only leaving one rep to go to give Z her 60 reputations to Exalted.

And that was my week in WoW.

 

 

 

Random Tuesday Mutterings… and more Deadline Videos!

Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week. You know I’m really enjoying doing the weekly wrap up, but it makes the weeks seem to go by so fast.. This is already the 3rd RTM and it feels like the year only started yesterday!

First up, Odyn randomly gave me a birthday present on Sunday of a new transmog set. I have no idea how he knew it was my birthday but he had a present ready which was nice. (Just on the off-chance all bosses were going to hand out birthday presents, I ran Zul’Gurub, Tempest Keep and ICC, but apparently they hadn’t looked at their calendars and didn’t hand over mount presents).

wowscrnshot_011717_194706.

I did some more levelling on my Warlock. Hip was levelling his Pally in Val’S and we were at the same quest so we decided to level together to finish the zone and hit 102. My noobishness at Warlockery things came out though when I managed to get lost in my own order hall and couldn’t find the way back to Dalaran. I had to hearthstone out of my own hall. I made sure I paid attention to where I was when I zoned back in. Won’t be making that mistake again.

warlock-val-ach

My Warlock also has a bedroom in her class hall. I can’t decide if I like it more or less than my Druid’s bedroom. I like the bed and the drapes a lot, but the succubus’ around it tends to detract a little. warlock-hall-bed

I’ve been really unhappy with my healing lately and decided to test out my theory that we have been overhealing our farm fights. So on Sunday’s last heroic TOV raid, I asked 2 of our healers to go dps.  We had 18 ppl and were doing heroic Odyn so I decided 3 healers was more than enough (we normally heal with 4 or 5, so complete over-kill on healers IMO).

It raised a couple of questions in the healing team if I was sure 3 would be ok. I was 99% sure we’d be fine with the lower amount but I did  keep  my fingers crossed during the fight hoping that it wasn’t a really dumb decision and we’d wipe miserably.  We actually did really good with the reduced healers and my healing skyrocketed (shameless Skada photo below) which helps confirm in my mind that Druids (or maybe just me) do crap when fights are overhealed.

z-can-actually-heal-sometimes

Seeing that I can put out the numbers helps mentally with my healing as I’ve really been struggling with the idea that I’m healing lead but lately my healing figures have been dismal. I keep waiting for one of the healers to call me out as a fraud or something. I know healing lead is more about a crap ton of reading of wowhead and healing forums to know the fights and work on strategies for best timings for cooldowns etc, and then watch timers to make sure that cds go off when I want etc, and not just  being up on top of the meters. But lower healing makes me feel like I’m not qualified to do the job. Why should another healer listen to me if they can outheal me goes through my mind pretty often. So knowing I can heal when I need helps in a a small way to make me feel more confident but I do worry that I’m not pulling it off in every fight.

Twice has been recording again and made an entire movie out of one of our last runs through EN. Given we move out of Emerald Nightmare tomorrow and into Nighthold, it was great timing!

I love this video so so much. I can’t believe how much I miss in fights though; I never realised that behind Elerethe is a destroyed Thunder Bluff and I never realised that Ysera turns up on the Xavius fight. My head is always buried in watching my green health bars so I miss so much.

It’s long but it was great to watch. I hope he does one for the end of Nighthold too.

I collected a few more Artifact weapons. I’ve decided all alts that have tank specs will try  levelling as tank given how easy it was to level as a Blood DK. So my Warrior collected her Prot Sword and Shield and my Monk Collected her Brewmaster Staff. brewmaster-weapon wowscrnshot_011217_195545

And Z collected an invite for the Brawlers Guild.. now I have no excuse to not take her in there and have a look at the fights…. one day

Random Tuesday Mutterings

Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week. I can’t believe this is nearly the last RTM for 2016. I wonder what 2017 is going to bring.

Once again I didn’t play over the weekend just gone, I went to sunny Qld and caught up with a ton of lovely wow players and had a weekend away from Azeroth. This is the last trip away for a while, so I should see a bit more playtime as my weekends usually are full of WoW.

I started levelling my DK again. She’s sitting at 106 and finished with her class order hall until she’s 110 now. I feel like that’s a massive gap and I would have thought there might be some quests around the 108 mark just to keep the story going.  I had to run a few dungeons for the order hall and initially chickened out of running them as tank so went off to get the Frost Weapon with the idea of dpsing instead.

I loved the story for the Frost weapon with it sending me back into ICC for fragments of Frostmourne to be remade into a new weapon. I had no one-handed swords apart from level 463 heirlooms so ended up just staying blood for the entire questing.

wowscrnshot_122016_202033 wowscrnshot_122016_201743

It was so interesting seeing the storyline that I immediately decided I wanted to see the last weapon quest and went and collected the Unholy weapon. Again, I just stayed blood.

It didn’t engage me as much as the blood and frost weapons story line did but it was still really interesting. When I was trying to quest outside Karazhan, I kept getting annihilated by 3 level 110 Alliance toons and I have to thank Tacky for coming to the rescue, as he did me a massive favour by pulling me onto a PVE realm so I could finish questing in peace. Some people are just utter dicks, I really don’t know what satisfaction 3 max level toons killing a levelling toon can bring.

Then I decided to que for the dgns I needed but the dps queue was taking a ridiculous amount of time so I stopped being a chicken and went and tanked Neltharian’s Lair and Darkheart Thicket. Both runs went really well, apart from the start of Neltharian’s Lair. I had started up Steam right as I entered and it started downloading automatically making my latency rise to over 1500ms, and it took ages to come back down even though I immediately quit Steam. Bad bad lag  combined with 2 110s who were easily doing 4 times my dps made holding threat almost non-existent at the start. Luckily things died fast enough that no one complained and once my lag settled down, it was a lot smoother for us all.

Darkheart Thicket was nice and easy as my ms was back down to the 20 it normally sits on.  I really love my blood DK (apart from her ridiculously slow run speed) and having Icebound Fortitude back since 7.1 is just awesome. I’m going to make an effort to get her to 110 over the weekend and finish her order campaign. I really have found it the most interesting out of the ones I’ve done so far.

 

Z finally got her paragon for Restoration. The first one gives 5% increase to healing and then every subsequent one after that is a 0.5% increase so I’m not going to be deliberately putting any more AP into her resto weapon.  I’m going to work at maxing out the other 3 weapons instead, starting with Feral.      wowscrnshot_122016_002804

I took Alliance and Horde toons over to the snow globes that have been added for this year’s Winter Veil. The globes are so pretty and it’s super cute being turned into Gnomes and Goblins.. but seriously my two toons are the most miserable looking elves ever. wowscrnshot_121916_202813  wowscrnshot_121916_193033

More Pets!! Z collected Broot from her seed plots. He is so cute so I’ll be keeping him out for a while. Still no hidden appearance for resto though yet. wowscrnshot_121416_080530

My Mage is normally my toon that farms the Winter Veil quest to rescue the stolen treats from the Greench up in Hillsbrad foothills as she has the Old Dalaran Crater portal to get up there quickly. With the same portal being put into Legion’s Dalaran I can pretty easily take any toon up there now.  But my Mage was still the first toon to go there this year, she got a Gaudy sweater out of the first present she opened though. It would be awesome if this was a toy.
