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 discovered how great the Sentinel Owl glyph looks. I was talking to Neuro about the new druid class mount and he was telling me how much he liked the Sentinel Owl glyph (which is currently incompatible with the new class ‘mount’ [ranty post coming if the PTR version doesn’t change]) and I said I’d never tried it because I loved my Troll bat form so much, but I decided to give it a try and OMG I’m in love. He has a grumpy little face which is growing on me but the utterly best part is that I can perch in Owl form. Owls are the new pigeons in Azeroth.
I reached Prestige level 2. Once I dinged level 2, I got a short quest chain to go see Sylvanas and had a heap of horde npcs all standing around admiring me which was pretty cool. I love the artifact appearance it unlocked but my favourite colour version comes from unlocking Prestige 6. I don’t see me getting to 6 anytime soon because it felt like it took a really long time to get to 2 even with doing the PvP world quests daily, lots of arenas and battlegrounds.
This week has been an amazing week for mount drops. It started when Dec and I were running old raids on the weekend to collect transmog sets and Invincible dropped. Then we joined up with Maz to run through Dragon Soul and the Blazing Drake dropped, and then we popped into Stratholme last night where the Deathcharger’s reins dropped. I can’t believe in one lockout 3 different mounts dropped! Dec won 2 of the 3 so I really think he should be buying a lottery ticket or something. All the content is soloable which I’ve done so many times on my own and never seen anything.. I can’t work out if it’s because having Dec along is a good luck token or not 🙂
I’ve just about collected most of the PvP set appearances on Z now. I’m really glad that a couple of the BC sets can be exchanged for raid tokens though, as it means I don’t have to use quite as many Marks of Honor. Once I get all the clothes sets for Z, I’ll have to decide if I want to start saving for the weapon appearances or get transmog sets on another class.
We’re still progressing on M Star Augur. Our best couple attempts were last night where we had a heartbreaking 2.3% wipe, followed immediately by a 1.2% wipe. We’re extending the lockout from now until Gul’dan is dead (or Tomb releases) so I really hope we kill this guy Wednesday because it is fast becoming my least favourite fight. It’s not helped that I am actually pretty crap on this one, especially since I have particular talent at boxing myself in with Fel goo so I end up taking more damage than I should and dying.
I finally found Charlie! He’s a reference to this video/series. Funny enough, a friend actually linked me the Charlie videos not long before Legion went live and I really loved them. When Legion went live, it turned out that there was a Charlie reference was in the game. I didn’t go looking for it then but with flying I thought I should stop being lazy and go see it for myself. When you kill the 2 Devious Sunrunners that are standing over Charlie’s corpse, it spawns a chest with a Sunrunner’s Kidney inside. Poor Charlie.
And that was my week in WoW. How was yours?
