Random Tuesday Mutterings is the perfect place to put the random assortment of what-nots I’ve got up to in Azeroth each week.
Twas the night before Argus….
It was a week of collecting artifacts. Zee finally got her gorgeous Owl from the Mage Tower.
This took me ages to get partly because I refused to go in and try it for a long while because I kept screwing up the final 2 stages. Once I got my healing rotation for the 2nd last stage under control, it took me a bit to work out I wasn’t handling the debuff at the end well so it took a few more attempts to work out how low I had to hold my health so I wouldn’t kill my minions but high enough that I didn’t die from the fel stomps the boss put on me. The last time it was up I ended up getting the final boss to just above 30% and I realised I was so close to being able to complete, so I was really impatient for it to come up again this week.
The owl is actually the only challenge skin I really love (I don’t think there’s any other staff like it in the game) so I really don’t know if I’ll go back in on alts and learn how to do it again.
Look at his little grumpy owl face!! I need to find a transmog that goes with it but this is the best I’ve been able to come up with that matches the colours. I think the dress is a little too blue and not aqua enough though.
I collected the final two weapons for my mage. The scenarios were quite fun but out of the 3 specs I really like Frost the best to play even though I think Fire is the better damage spec at the moment.
My Warrior got her class mount… with a hell of a lot of swearing during the final scenario. I figured it would be like the other 11, aka rather easy and more of a story but I was wrong. It was a trial of combat where I had to defeat 4 difficult adds (1 at a time) and for my ungeared, underplayed alt it was so hard. If I had any idea how difficult it was going to be I would have taken food and flasks in but I wandered in blindly and once I finally got the first guy down, there was no way I was leaving and having to re-do him. The 2nd and 3rd weren’t too hard but the 4th took a while. Finally done though and this makes the final class mount collected.
I went in to the treasure master cave with around 15k nethershards on my Warlock, determined to spend all of them in an attempt to get the Pilfered Sweeper and ended up getting it first go!
Then I decided to spend the rest of them trying to get an unstable arcanocrystal trinket and ended up getting a warforged socketed one first go! I was tossing up going and doing some old raids for mounts seeing she was having incredible luck but decided it was probably just Broken Shore luck.
Raid has been going steadily, we’re progressing on mythic Mistress and starting to regularly get her to 3rd phase so hopefully it won’t be too much longer on her. There’s been a lot of wipes so far as we learn the fight. I really like that we can wipe over and over and no-one has really lost their shit at anyone else, as long as we don’t burn out before she dies it should be good. In the meantime we’ve all been playing with our toys in raid which is fun.
And how awesome is our Ret Pally’s transmog? I thought for a bit he was wearing a coin illusion but this is his regular transmog appearance.
And it’s Argus when we wake up tomorrow…. I didn’t think I was excited but actually I am..
And that was my week in WoW. How was yours?
