The weeks with having fun in 7.3.5

I managed to write this post on time! Go me!

The leveling changes in 7.3.5 are the best thing that’s happened to WoW since Legion launched. It’s just amazing! I started with my troll druid in Azshara, I’m level 24 and I still have quests there and I don’t have to worry about then going green or grey. The mobs hit hard but not too much. I’m feral for questing and resto in dungeons. Shadowfang Keep was stupid hard but I think they tweaked it. I only do dungeons to finish the quests in them and then go back to leveling in Azshara because I’m working on Loremaster. I will finish much less zones than I anticipated because the leveling is still quite fast but it doesn’t matter, I want to level more characters eventually. Maybe one of the cool allied races we’re getting later.

I did the whole Antorus on LFR with the lovely Laytis. Argus fight is really good and fun. And I saw the cinematic in all its glory in game. The last scene still hurts.

The quests in Silithus after killing Argus were interesting. It also reminded me that I never leveled my Horde mage to 110 in Legion (and I don’t want to because I already saw all the mage stuff) so I probably won’t have a max level Horde toon ready for BfA. But we’ll see when it comes out. I’m hoping for some announcements soon.

I got to prestige level 13 and I’m close to 14. I’m getting more and more worried I won’t make it to 18 for the title in time but that might be just paranoia. I hate when content goes away, especially without any info if/how/when it will be available again.

I finally leveled all the pets I needed for the Celestial Tournament and I went in there. And it took about two minutes until I got into trouble. The strategy for Taran Zhu from the Wowhead guide didn’t work so I had to experiment a bit. I eventually found one that worked really well and I beat it! I bought the Chi-Chi pet and I’m already looking forward to doing it again next week.

I started farming the world bosses in Tanaan Jungle for the mounts they drop (or don’t drop so far) and I finished Tiny Terrors of Tanaan. The fights also drop satchels that can have a pet in them so I think I need to add those to my list of pets I want to get. And by the way, I made a list! My 2018 bucket list. Let’s see how that goes, shall we?

My bucket list for 2018

Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Second challenge of week 29 is “2018 Bucket List”. You can find other people’s posts on their website.

The bucket list for 2017 was much easier to write because we didn’t have an expansion coming that year so all of this may change based on when BfA comes out.

In 2017, I spent a lot of time in old content catching up on reps, achievements, mounts and pets and I finished most of the things I wanted to, at least on my main. From now on, I am going to do old content while leveling alt/alts.

Instead, I want to do the more challenging pet battles, like The Celestial Tournament and the pet battle dungeons. I made a list of pets I’ll need for the Tournament and I’m slowly leveling them up. I’d never done a research about pet battles before. It’s exciting 🙂

Things I want to do in Legion:

  • PvP prestige level 18 for “The Unstoppable Force” title (I might not get there before BfA but I’m still hoping and killing all the Horde!)
  • level my troll druid Tannyi and work on Loremaster in the process

Things I want to do in Legion and/or BfA if I have the time:

  • Mount farming
    • Karazhan – Fiery Warhorse
    • The Eye – Ashes of Al’ar
    • Firelands – Pureblood Fire Hawk
    • Isle of Thunder – Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent
    • Isle of Giants – Cobalt Primordial Direhorn
    • Kun-Lai Summit – Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent
    • Valley of the Four Winds – Son of Galleon
    • Throne of the Four Winds – Drake of the South Wind
  • get all the pets from The Celestial Tournament and the pet battle dungeons

 

It’s not actually a long list but I imagine I will be busy with BfA. And I might have to take a break from WoW because it looks I won’t have any money to spare this year. But we’ll see.

And I am going to turn this into a page where I will track my progress as I did for 2017. Crossing things off a list is still an amazing thing to do 🙂

Happy 2018, everyone!

First two weeks of 2018

New year, same me struggling to write a blog post. But hey, I did it eventually!

But I started the year right with 10000 Honorable Kills achievement on the 1st January! I’m almost prestige 13 now and I had to take a break from PvP because I was starting to hate it. I do all the Warden’s Towers world quests + 2 free-for-all PvP WQs (unless Black Rook Hold is up because I hate that one) every day and with my limited time to play WoW, it’s all I do in game some days. I can’t wait to get to level 18 for the title and then not do any PvP anymore. Ever. Or until I start to miss it which is eventually going to happen, let’s be honest, Ann..

All those WQs and honor leveling give me a lot of artifact power so I fillled up 75 traits on my creepy staff Aluneth and unlocked all the power of the Netherlight Crucible. I was in no rush to do it but the last thingy on he Netherlight Crucible was Everywhere At Once (Increases the window to activate Displacement by 5 sec, and reduces the cooldown of Displacement by 10 sec.) which is actually pretty good! I should read my abilities more often.

Darkmoon Faire is this week so I took advantage of the reputation buff and finished Fisherfriend of the Isles. That was a lot of fishing. A LOT of fishing. And I still need to do MORE fishing to max out Underlight Angler, the fishing pole. Getting that thing to full is harder than getting my artifact weapon to full. Fortunately, I still enjoy fishing 🙂 It just takes longer than I would like.

I got PetTracker addon which shows you which pets you are missing on the map, caught some and got So. Many. Pets. achievement. I also found a guide for Celestial Tournament and I’m leveling the pets which the guide uses. The Tournament has been on my list for a long time now and I want to finally get to it. That should be fun. Or terrible, terrible frustration. We’ll see.

The lovely Laytis took me to LFR Antorus because I was too scared to go there on my own and I got very lucky and this thing dropped for me:

It has cute paws but it’s very ugly overall. And I even had fun in the LFR! I didn’t mess up much and most of the fights were good.

I felt very melancholic on New Year’s Eve so I went to Varian’s grave for the first time ever. I was avoiding the place because I knew it would make me sad and I didn’t want to be sad but I finally found the courage. So 2018 came as I was crying my eyes out and mourning my king in a fictional story in a video game. That’s my life, I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
