The week with more mount luck

I have been incredibly lucky with mounts this week. Again. That’s third week in a row. First was Invincible from ICC. Then Grand Black War Mammoth from Vault of Archavon. Now Abyss Worm from Tomb of Sargeras AND White Polar Bear from Brunnhildar Village. They’re all pretty rare. And I have them!

This is the ugly worm from Mistress Sassypants:

And this is the pretty bear from Gretta:

I also finished reputation with Order of the Cloud Serpent and earned three more mounts: Jade Cloud Serpent, Azure Cloud Serpent and Golden Cloud Serpent.

With Order of the Cloud Serpent and Brunnhildar Village done, I’m thinking about starting a new reputation grind. I’ll probably do Netherwing because you get six mounts at exalted. I currently have 187 mounts so I’m very slowly (but surely) getting to 200.

I moved to a new flat yesterday and I don’t have the internet yet and everything I own is in boxes so it might take some time before I can play WoW again. Until then, have a great time in game and keep Azeroth save for me 🙂

The week with ups and downs (mostly ups)

This week was dedicated to my pally and working for the class mount. I finished Broken Shore questline and even became exalted with Armies of Legionfall in the process. I started the questline for the mount… and found out I needed to do part of Suramar story to be able to continue.

I never know how to handle these things. At one point, I was thinking about looking up the questline to see what I would need to do but I didn’t want to spoil anything from the story. Someone probably mentioned it (I even listen to a podcast about mounts) but I must have missed it. Or I didn’t listen carefully because I only recently decided to get a class mount for my pally too.

I was disappointed at first but the Suramar questline gives a lot of artifact power and you can get extra mounts for Concordance on artifact weapons so it’s a good thing in the end. I just need to be patient 🙂 I am not patient when it comes to mounts.. But I will try. (Breathe, Ann, you will get your horsie eventually.)

I did get two other mounts though, first one being Grand Black War Mammoth from Vault of Archavon! I was very lucky again, the drop rate is low and I hadn’t been farming it for too long. Your faction needs to control Wintergraps to enter the raid and I don’t know how to win the battle so it was more complicated than other mounts I’m farming.

The second mount I got is Green Primal Raptor from Isle of Giants. Some of the mobs there drop eggs which take three days to hatch into one of three mounts and you can get duplicates but it took me only five eggs to get all three mounts so lucky again!

After getting Invincible last week, I decided to add more mounts to my circle of disappointment. Simple Armory is a great website to see your achievements and their mount planner will plan your mount farm for you.

This is what part of mine looks like:

It is handy and it showed me which raids and dungeons I should be running and I’m not. For example, did you know there are two mounts in Zul’Gurub? And that the place is confusing af and (if you’re like me), you need to find a guide because you have no idea where the bosses are?

The only downside is that I listen to Reins during my circle of disappointment on Tuesday afternoon and the circle is now longer than most of the episodes. I need to do parts of it some other day, probably during the weekend. Ulduar takes a lot of time because I’m working on the legendary for my pally so I run the whole place. It is a big place.

I discovered a message from injured hero somewhere on the Broken Isles and got Legion Medic which was the last achievement I needed for Heroic Skills to Pay the Bills meta. I’m pretty sure I spent more money to get it than I earned from those professions so the name of the meta-achievement doesn’t fit very well.

After not very succesful run last week, I went to Wailing Halls on LFR again, managed to kill everything and got Wailing Halls. Aluneth, my creepy talking staff, got all emo again. He’s either creepy or emo. I ❤ him so much!

I participated in Auction House Dance Party. It was fun! I liked dancing, watching other people (but not too closely because I’m on Argent Dawn and people there get naked a lot) and I especially loved the buff you got. It made my character randomly start to dance whenever she felt like it.

I’m still here and I got an invisible pony!

I haven’t posted anything for a while, sorry about that. I’m still alive but playing WoW less because of life stuff. I also found a local DnD group, became friends with the DM and we’re playing Divinity: Original Sin together. It’s fun although I’m mostly useless in combat.

In WoW news, I got Invincible! I’m really lucky with the rare mounts. I’m still using the disk on my mage but my paladin is not riding anything else from now on.

I completed paladin class hall campaign. I enjoyed it. Now to finish Broken Isles and get the class mounts! I’m already at the last few quests so it’s coming soon.

I also did the Midsummer festival because I needed the meta for What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been (only Brewfest left to do!). I flew all around the worlds, honored Alliance bonfires, desecrated Horde bonfires (sorry!), stole flames from Horde capitals (sorry again!), killed Ahune, juggled torches and even danced at a ribbon pole (that was a bit weird..). It was fun and easy, exactly how I like my world events.

It’s summer time in game so I could finally catch a Qiraji Guardling and finish World Safari!

There’s still a lot of pet battling achievements I haven’t finished but they will have to wait. There’s so much content now, I need to prioritise. And probably stop sleeping because there’s not enough hours in a day to get it all done..

I found a good group and ran Timewalking Black Temple. We wiped a few times but people understood mechanics eventually and we killed everything. It took us around 3 hours. I don’t know how long other people spent there but it felt quick. And it was worth it. I didn’t play back then so it was great to hear everyone’s memories and stories.

I’m doing PvP again and I reached prestige level 6. The reward for level 18 is title “the Unstoppable Force” which I would love to have but I doubt I’d get it even if I started grinding out the levels now. It’s an awesome title though.

I’ll try to post regularly again and to catch up on Z and Cinder’s Blog Challenge. There’s been so many great topics recently!
