It was quite a week of my vacation devoted to WoW mostly. And I’ve advanced significantly on my way in different directions. Let’s talk one by one.
No mount this year – again. 13 tries daily, and no result. People advise to just quit trying any holiday mount! Not my thing, it provides some distraction from routines, so I’ll be running it and Halloween nevertheless.
For the Lunar Festival, there are 3 new toys which allow you to make a chinese festival dragon with your friends, and four awesome wreaths as a holiday attire.
I’m not sure I’ll be farming them all, but at least I did one wreath :)
Raids and Mogging
I had some free time to drive all my classes through Antorus. I’m glad to report that mogging slots get gradually covered. This is just awesome how every next earned item means less runs and less bosses every next week.
And lo! I’ve collected the missing two items for my priest:
This means that all my cloth toons are now officially on standby mode! Their job in raids of Legion is done. Faari, Micromantica, Faerella and Aurinko are enjoying their well deserved rest from the hard campaign.
Myde, the new leveling mage, will still run Antorus when she gets there, but merely for ilvl sakes. I think I would drive her to 915-925, and this is gonna be it. I just want her to be on the same level as my other toons for pre-patch.
Long Term Achievements
Of course my cloth girls happen to have another goals to do. There’s Archaeology and Fishing acheievements to complete for Micromantica. There’s 20000 eyes to farm in Underbelly for Faerella (she has 8500 on her now).
Yet I devoted a pair of hours to farming goals already. 5000 Argus demons were slain, and 5000 saberon claws collected in Tanaan. The thing is that you don’t acquire them little by little, no. One great effort, and you close the achievement which would not loom over your head ever since.
Now I have a scarlet butt Pumbaa:
And of course, there is leveling of my four new Allied Races. I happen to push them forward equally: they are now at 37-39. If it were just one toon, it would already be mid-Draenor.
It’s dungeon queueing while questing, and it’s pretty fast if you are really into it. For example, Kalaari the Paladin, upon finishing a quest hub in the morning without dungeon runs, is up by 2 levels.
I’m totally enjoying the leveling pace and variety, along with mob scaling. An option to return to Loch Modan after Arathi is awesome. By 40th level, I will have another gorgeous choice of zones, and neither of my 4 toons will have to re-run the same zones on their way to the top. And at 60, they will split to Outland and Northrend!
My toons have just entered their new zones, and their leveling rolls as such:
Myde, 38: Duskwood – Redridge – Northern Stranglethorn, entered Southern Stranglethorn
Kalaari, 39: Wetlands – Arathi – Loch Modan, entered Eastern Plaguelands
Arkeona, 38: Hillsbrad – Arathi – Hinterlands, entered Western Plaguelands
Jammu, 37: Ashenvale – Desolace, entered Feralas
I presume there should be a couple of zones for each of my toons until 58-60, and they will be chosen due to character lore attunement:
Arkeona, as an assassin and a spyblade, will solve Western Plaguelands and most probably issues in Burning Steppes. Then she continues to Outland, craving to go to Terokkar and Nether.
Jammu will continue enjoying the wonders of Kalimdor and learning about Tauren druids. Her plan are the lush grounds of Feralas and Un’Goro, then she will go and see Taunka in Borean Tundra!
Kalaari will do the paladin cause in Eastern Plaguelands, then she travels to Blasted Lands and continue to Outland to see her draenei homeland.
Myde will explore the troll civilizations in Stranglethorn, then it’s most probably Swamp of Sorrows, followed by Northrend (most likely, Howling Fjord).
I’m having lots of fun at this point of expansion, and I foresee quite relaxed months of enjoyable gameplay :)
P.S.: the yak won’t pass under certain bridges :) You’ll need a detour.
