Well since it’s the end of the expansion, this is of course the time wherein a lot of people scramble to finish long outstanding achievements. I’ve actually managed to finish several the last few weeks.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I hate that but Real Life reared it’s head this past month in a very real and scary way. First of all, a month ago, my father in law had a stroke. He survived and just came back home this past week and is improving every single day. He still has some loss of movement in his right hand/arm/leg but it’s coming back little by little. He lives an hour away from us and the hospital he was in was about an hour and 40 minutes away so a lot of traveling ensued. We even had to cancel a raid which hasn’t happened in years but I have the best raiders who are incredibly understanding – I mean Real Life comes first!
And then last week there was a shooting outside our house – something unheard of for our neighborhood, and thankfully no one was hurt… it’s just really disturbing to have that happen twenty feet from where you’re sitting in the living room.
One of the brightest spots this past week was receiving a pet from my friend Navi who literally made my day. It was an expected and welcome Dragon Kite – level 25. I named it Rawr. It seemed appropriate and it CHANGES COLORS. SQUEE!!! And as you can see from the picture below is that I also got my Hearthsteed which I think is just GORGEOUS.
Anyway, I’ll get to more posts later… I have quite a few in mind – including the new Diablo 3 expansion and the new game Heroes of the Storm which is in technical alpha at this point. Ven and I were lucky enough to get invites.
Well this weekend I decided it was high time I sat down and finally got at least one of the warbringer mounts. My experience grouping for those has not been very good. This weekend however was pretty much just me with hubby joining me on a few circuits.
I managed to net two of the three mounts in the process – And while I occasionally saw people farming them or camping the Dread Wastes one, they’re up a lot on my circuits – even on the weekend – so it’s not a horrible time to farm them.
But anyway, here are the two I managed to get…
So quite a few things over the weekend in terms and achievements and goals and such. First of all, my bank guild finally hit level 25. Hubby logged on and was helping me run around getting candy buckets on a couple of his alts. One of my major goals for this expansion was to have it leveled to 25 so quite happy it’s done. I’ve had a few friends help out now and again – Endy, Rok, Kan, Black, Ra and I hope I didn’t forget anyone. Ven leveled a couple alts there but most of the work was my own.
Saturday night – just after midnight… well I guess that’d make it Sunday morning… I saw a note on my battlenet about getting a group together for Rabble Rabble Rabble. Naturally, Ven and I jumped in for that! To get the achievement you have to have 20 plus people queued up for a Brawl fight. The portal lasts something like 5 minutes but it was nice to get this!
And this morning I go to run Sunwell, as I do weekly on my hunter [almost forgot it this week] and when I killed Kiljadean I looked away for just a moment only to see something flash across the screen in my peripheral vision.
Yup it dropped!
We had such a fantastic time tonight! Monday night is when we run our retro stuff and tonight we were in Firelands. We finished Glory of the Firelands Raider for 8 people in the raid… just needing to finish “Do a Barrel Roll”.
We cleared the rest of the heroic modes for the other two who needed them and ended up calling it early to take screen shots of us on our new mounts at Shrine. Apparently created a little stir too… had a couple people standing on top of us and asking about the guild :P so all in all, not too bad
After that, I got a note from Endyme of Unholy Randomness [whom I happen to know in Real Life] and got invited on her guild’s alt run of Mogushun. We cleared the first three bosses on heroic mode and ended up doing a few attempts at Spirit Kings. Ven and I both ended up getting heroic Jasper Clawfeet for our offsets but the look at the four heroic modes was fantastic… can’t wait to bring that back to our raid. Endyme’s guildies are completely psychotic… but in a fun kind of way.
Not only did completing Shadowmourne get an achievement for me and the guild, but it got the Ultimate Collection Finished!
Yup, I finally managed to finish out Shadowmourne after what, three years? I remember doing the infusions at level… well 2 of them at least.
I honestly don’t have a lot to say, other than that I appreciate the members of both my current guild – Band of Misfits and my old guild on Thorium Brotherhood – Wrath and Retribution, for banding together to help me finish it. Almost everyone has their metas finished, with only a couple people who couldn’t attend regularly missing a few things.
Oh, here’s me in the tabard, glowing:
