Today I did a little achievementing and ended up with over 11k achievement points… not that I’ll catch up with hubby but I did close the gap… he’s only a few hundred ahead and that’s because he’s a rep grinding fiend… and I HATE rep grinding.
Anywho, I finished grinding Kurenai [oh the pain] this morning getting diplomat in the process and and therefore bought the 8 mounts they had for me to reach the 100 mounts.
And then this afternoon, a friend of ours was on and he hopped into raid with us and we three manned five bosses in AQ40 and got the rep I needed for Nozdormu. I was really close anywho, but it was nice to finish!
Next on the plate:
150 pets [I’m 6 5 3 short currently]
– Exalted with
Keepers of Time, Kaluak, Netherwing, Shatari Skyguard, Ogrilla, Hydraxian Waterlords, Stormpike, Oracles [over time of course – some of these I’m not interested in starting just yet]
-Finish redoing the zones for the post Cata achievements – I have 9 zones to go, all in Kalimdor [Ashenvale; Darkshore; Desolace; Dustwallow; Felwood; Feralas; Stonetalon; Southern Barrens; and 1000 Needles – at least one of these will provide a pet].
– Do more work on Archaeology if I can… ugh.
Regrinding guild rep doesn’t seem quite as onerous as people think, unless you just hate dailies [and I know some people are of that mind and hey, it’s cool – we all gotta play our own ways!]. But there are a number of ways to regain guild reputation. In fact, you can easily be exalted with your new guild in about 4-5 weeks, more if you’re more casual about raids/dailies. Either of the BOA tabards will enhance rep gained per boss/instance/daily. You can either bring it with you or gain it at Friendly [blue tabard for 50% gains] or Honored [purple tabard for 100% rep gains].
1. Raids – Guild raids give quite a bit of rep. Hubby and I have been attending our new guild’s farm night where they blaze through T11 raids. Alts are welcome, but we’ve honestly been glad to just play our mains and gain the Valor points and Guild rep that comes with it.
2. Guild Dungeons. Five mans with three or more guildies will give Guild Rep [more with more guildies]. We’ve managed to catch a few of these as well and it’s been really profitable reputation-wise.
3. Daily Quests – While one might think that the Molten Front dailies would be ideal, most of the dailies actually inside the Molten Front are unaffected by the Guild Tabards. So while the outside quests do provide double rep with the tabard, and are worth doing, I’d skip the inside ones unless you aren’t finished opening everything up. The Tol Barad quests are actually very good for guild rep as all of them become double rep with the tabard.
EDIT: Apparently zoning into the Molten Front deactivates the tabard and if you remove it and re-equip it, the tabard gains will work appropriately.
