Getting there!

I finally started getting alts through the Broken Shore stuff.  Doing just a bit at a time but I’m getting there.


Thanks to invasions, I also finally got my mage leveled, which is the last class to 110 I needed and I’m working on her class hall questline.  In fact, I’ve leveled about 5 toons via invasions.  I’m just taking 3-4 over each invasion I catch and doing the easier quests [kill one mob, or easy pick ups].  If I can do all 6 quests, it’s about a level per toon.  I find the scaling is a bit off for sub 110s.  Tanks can manage even so, but dps can run into problems finishing some of the quests [particularly in caves].


I’ve also started a massive new project – collecting all the transmog sets for all the classes.  You can see my progress on the Transmog Sets Page up at the top.  I’m focused on Death Knights primarily as that’s my main class, but I have most of the sets for them and what I’m missing is mostly single pieces from later sets.  I don’t run everything every week [clearly] but I pick and choose – what I feel like running, what class I feel like playing, or what I’m close to finishing.  It’s a very long term type project but I’ll get there eventually.  I’ve already bought the PVP sets for half the classes.  Granted, Death Knights, Monks and Demon Hunters had less sets to contend with in the first place.  I’m also done with Paladins, Priests and Warlocks as well for the PVP sets.  I think I calculated that it takes 324 Marks of Honor to buy all the sets for a class [presuming you have no sets for said class and that it’s not a later added class].  Running multiple toons through towers when they’re up is rather lucrative in terms of Marks of Honor.

Checking In

Miss you too!

Cathedral of Tainted Souls

Hello, everyone. This is just a post to let you know that I’m still alive and well and doing just fine, thank you for asking.

Naturally, there are many things I miss about my life in WoW. I miss my friends and guildies. I miss making my YouTube videos and interacting with subscribers. Heck, at times I miss playing the game itself. It was fun. All of these things contributed to a sense of community that I miss dearly. You guys meant a lot to me and I think about all of you on a daily basis.

To be honest about it, I have to admit that I gave some serious thought to coming back. Aside from all the people and other things that I miss, I’d love to see and experience all of the new zones, quests, raids, and dungeons. I’d even love to take a crack at the…

Up and Down Weekend

The weekend was alright.  Friday night we got a group together to chase down some of the Legion Mythic achievements and did pretty well, all things considered.  We didn’t realize that the Black Rook Hold achieves feed into the Maw of Souls one so we’ll have to come back to that but we got quite a few done.  Probably the most aggravating will be the Violet Hold achievement if that one boss doesn’t show up.

Oh hit the big 10,000 World Quest achievement this weekend as well.  Yes, it’s the last one in that particular series.  A bit of a relief to have it and not have to worry about it at all.

I’ve been working on Family Familiar [where you beat Master Tamers with teams from the same family].  Xu-Fu’s Pet Guides has been invaluable for trying different strategies.  I definitely recommend that if you decide to start chasing it.  I would also recommend the addon Family Familiar Helper which is just as great as it shows what you’ve done and on what tamers in a very easy chart.

Oh, and I got my third screech on my druid this past weekend which means that my druid got the hidden feral artifact skinWoWScrnShot_031617_174835Truthfully I’m not sure I like it as much as the pure black cat one I had on but it’s cool.  It’s nice to know where that particular skin comes from too.

Most of the down of the weekend came from being sick and not feeling great.  Well that was pretty much my weekend 🙂  Sorry for the short entry!

Mounts x6

I had a really productive week with mounts.  I had decided after finally attaining Ji-Kun, that I would work on the Hatchling mounts next [the questline you get from the little orphaned pets in the Warden quest Swarm areas.  After a few days of completing the quests on Askevar, I discovered that I could do more quests if I accepted them on level 110 alts!  So I pushed that for a few days and lo and behold, I now have four additional mounts

Persistence Pays Off

People continually comment about how lucky I am with mount drops and ask how I can manage it.  Well, here’s the secret – I’m not lucky.  I’m simply persistent.  I mean 182 attempts for the JiKun mount [Clutch of JiKun] is not what I would call lucky but I got it done finally.  My warlock was the one with the luck so she got to take the picture on it.  It’s a neat mount and I’m glad to finally have it.  I think my next focus will be chasing down the four five mounts from the hatchlings.  Those are apparently daily quests so I should get there fairly quick since I rather like dailies.



I also got the Flamesaber mount from participating in 15 heroes of the storm games.  I teamed up with hubby and another guildie and we just knocked it out in one evening.  The games were versus AI and on the easiest setting [we were between 7-15 minutes per game, average was probably 12] as our guildie friend Eth had no experience with the game whatsoever and I was particularly nervous about joining in with random people because I don’t know what I’m doing.  Eth liked Muradin and played him largely as a tank [he’s a ret paladin in our raid].  Ven [hubby] like Kael’thas a lot and took great glee in one shotting multiple of the enemy team two at a time with some sort of ability he gained.  I ran around on Li Li and healed everyone.  I actually made enough gold off the games to go ahead and purchase her since I liked her so much.  I also hit level 10.  Ten more levels and I get a pet… which I should have gotten way back when but meh…




And while I was doing dailies today, I was running a few toons on my second account through the first boss in Trial of the Crusader to try and get that elusive pet [not the Raiding with Leashes one but the Magnatar Hunting Horn] and it finally dropped.  Rarity had recorded about 19 attempts total but I know I’ve probably had somewhere between 30-50 previous to it recording.  So I’m rather happy about finally getting that.


I had no luck with the Valentine’s even this year and I ran an absolutely absurd number of toons through daily.  My plan is to next year have both accounts full of 16 plus characters and just throw my best effort at it to date but we’ll see how that goes.  I foresee lots of level 16 paladins in my future.  I did get both of the new toys so yay!  Speaking of Love is in the Air, here’s a picture of me having used the potion from the dailies.



I’m also drifting back into my gold making.  I’ve not been very good about listing auctions as religiously as I used to at the end of the last expansion and I thought it was time to change that.  The good news was that all the BoEs and patterns I had saved up are actually worth a bit more now, though I’ve probably been making a weekly 10-20k off of transmog I’ve posted along the way so I’m definitely in the positive for the expansion.  I’ve started watching some Twitch streams again on occasion.  I had drifted away from that for a time as well because I just had so much I was working on that I was often dual boxing and watching streams in addition didn’t work.


Anyway, good to see ya’ll and happy hunting in Azeroth!
