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 found out that warlocks can kill Viscidious in Temple of Ahn’Qiraj by using Demon Bolt (demonolgy spec) to freeze him. Demon Bolt is a Chaos spell and chaos is made up of all the schools of magic including frost.

So helpful since I’ve been running her through there for transmog a lot. She just finished getting the warlock set out of there this week so I’ll have to work out what other classes have frosty spells.

Last 2 classes hit 110!

Both the Rogue and the Warrior were pretty much levelled solely through invasions which meant both of them got to 110 very very undergeared (even in heirlooms) and with no relics in any of their weapon sockets. Nethershard portal farming down on the broken shore is a really handy way to gear up, the  really high chance of dauntless tokens dropping from the portal mobs as well as it only costing 400 nethershards for a 850 item means you can almost full 850 gear in a really short space of time.

11th campaign done! My warrior finished her class hall. Only the Rogue to go now.

I instantly fell in love with the new mount that is on the Blizz store and had to buy it straight away. I’m a huge fan of cat mounts and this one is simply gorgeous.  

And of course I couldn’t leave Twilight, the new cat pet in the store either.

This is the cutest pet to use the pet mirror on as you get the colour change effect too.

My mage found a quest in her order hall to go collect a magic hat toy that lets her pull a rabbit out of her hat.

So cute and it had the best quest to go with it where you had to go into the magic hat and find out what was happening to all the magical bunnies.

Cinder mentioned  that there was a toy for sale in Stormwind that I didn’t have, so I popped down to pick it up. Bom’bay’s Color-seein’ Sauce was part of the Battlefield barrens event back in MoP and now Alliance can buy it again in Stormwind.

Using the toy gives you a random colour effect (Orange, Red, Yellow, Blue, Purple and Green) that lasts for 20secs and progressively gets darker until it expires.

Family Familiar is done!

The reward is the little corrupted Nightmare Treant pet. He’s actually pretty cute.

I feel like I’m starting to get through my to-do list for Legion so I’ll have to have a think about what else I want to get done before this expansion ends. There’s sure to be other grinds that are easier to do in the current expac rather than later.. any suggestions?

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

Hmm what have I been up to this week?

I took my Druid and Shaman through their 15s for the week. I love the changes to the keystone letting it start higher. Z’s started at 14 this week which was a nice change from the last few weeks where she was getting an 11 out of the box and having to boost it a  number of time to get into the 15s. Easier affixs this week meant she zoomed through her 15 keystone.

My Shaman though was a whole other story. I was having a ridiculous time on the final boss in Maw of Souls 15 and managed to kill myself on an easily avoidable ability multiple times triggering a wipe each time. I was expecting a ton of abuse from the pugs and sure enough one gave it out to me; I didn’t really care what they said because it was nothing worse than what I was internally giving myself but the last comment they made really pulled me up. The person that had an issue with me, asked Dec if I was his wife (same guild so all I can assume is they figured that). Dec decided to answer in the affirmative, (yay for not disowning me completely over my derp attempts – I wouldn’t have blamed him for not wanting to know me lol) which immediately mollified the person and they toned right down. Interesting attitude, I’m pretty sure it’s completely based on some sexist notion of how females play wow since there was no indication that Dec and I were anything more than guildies.  I’m still not sure whether to be completely offended that they wrote my performance off based on my status as only a wife, or just freaking happy I got out of the embarrassing situation without the pages of whispers, berating my performance, I was expecting. I also really wished I had spoken up faster and said, Dec was my wife just to see the reaction.  Either way it was a rubbish boss that I do know how to do and just screwed up.. many times. Poor pugs, poor Dec.

I also took my lock through her first Mythic 10 for the achievement. I went along with Dec and Kublas which was really fun. Mythic plus with friends is way better than pugs.

I’m still way too amused by the ghostly souls that my artifact sucks out of dead bodies. I like to leave them for as long as possible before I have to turn them into purple balls.

My DK finished off her class mount and collected the three shades of dragon.

I really love the frost version. The blue and purple wings are just gorgeous and completely matches my current transmog.

I’m not entirely sold on the whole coffin and gravestone on the back of the dragon. I think it spoils what is a really nice dragon model and I can’t see how it really fits death knight lore, we’re undead but not vampires.

My monk picked up her last artifact weapon. The dps quest line was really easy but I’m really glad I stayed in tank spec for it. I think it would have been horrid without the tankiness of Brewmaster.

She also finished her order hall campaign. Only 3 order hall campaigns to go now.

More family familiar achievements! I only have 1 tamer left for 3 different classes so hopefully I’ll finish the last set off really quickly if the right combination of tamers come up.

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

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

With only 2 nights of raiding this week, I feel like I’ve had heaps of time just to muck around in the game and relax. There’s been a real toy theme in all my screenshots this week. It started when I was over at Throne of Thunder and decided to wait for Nalak to come up before going in and seeing if Ji-kun and Horridon feel like passing over mounts and there ended up being a bit of a crowd gather to wait as well. One of the people waiting started to put down all his toys and it turned into  a little party for a bit. A solitary Alliance turned up and actually waited with the horde that were there, which I thought was rather brave of them, as I’ve been attacking most of them on sight lately. But when they put down toys too, I thought it would be nicer to leave them be.

I ran a few old cata raids with Toco and Dec for transmog and gave Toco his very own moonkin army. I really love the magic mirror which lets you take on your pets appearance. 2 magic mirrors along with the Moonkin Hatchling pet looked adorable.

I finally got around to unlocking the new traits on my Shaman’s weapon. I had been dumping so much AP into her weapon that she couldn’t use it so I went and completed the scenarios for both Ele and Resto. I really really loved the Ele quest line which had me reading books and working out a puzzle based on clues in the book. The resto one was the same one I had done on Z, so nothing exciting there.

Zee got concordance on her resto weapon, so now I don’t feel as compelled to grind out AP. The proc of extra intellect seems to occur a lot but doesn’t really feel that inspiring. It won’t be really changing the way I do anything but I’m glad I don’t have that 52nd trait hanging over my head. I’ll put all AP into my Boomy weapon next and then probably my feral and bear and then go back to putting anything else into Resto.. AP the gift that keeps on giving.

Playing my shaman a bit more, reminded me that she had 2 leatherworking toys she could make. The leather pet bed is just cute. When you put it down any pet that you have out climbs on it. Not of all the pets have lying down animations, some just stand on it, but the ones that do lie down are adorable.

I also went and bought the recipe for the leather love seat which lets you sit down with another person and you can snuggle up next to them.

And to have a bit of fun and get to know Frostmourne, I made a brand new human Pally. So much has changed since I last leveled a plate wearer, we can actually wear plate not mail now!

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