What We've Been Doing:



Aprillian




Constraxx

  Toys, Mounts, Pets, Leveling, Timewalking Mists of Pandaria, Hunter, Mage, Death Knight, Warlock, Paladin x 2, Druid, Enhancement Shaman, Priest.  Upgrading Gear as you Go, easy way to level while watching movies.

 500 Timewalking Badges from 1 dungeon, you can fully gear a character that dinged 1 level, you can fully equip every non BOA slot except for 1 trinket i think when you ding a new level, the gear scales with you past all the way to 120 (iLvl 320).  Waiting for Queue while doing Archeology and a few quests in various zones, grabbing flightpaths, recruiting Champions in Draenor, killing rares for the occasional blue item or toy, a few pet battles as well, why not, it’s fun to level your pets.

Votekick, still applies, glad to see that there is a class more hated than rogues when you run dungeons, huntard is not derogatory, that’s like a mild form of deciding if a hunter is a good nuke or a poorly aimed nuke i.e. range 1200 yards, blast radius 5 miles.

Some work done alliance side on the Hivemind mount, 4 monocles aquired, Green (hard, 2300 gold minimum is you do it perfectly in 1 go), Yellow (super easy skyreach, can multibox),  Blue is very long (travel to find all letters, similar to aquiring Dalaran Familiar, macro required to do in correct order and check progress, have to complete chess event in Karazhan: old version)

Currently on part where you subdue 4 withered, you need a 5 man team. When the withered are fighting on your side, one person in party has to cross into a secret closet in Suramar.

Jumping puzzle later 5 person have to cross a chasm in 3 man teams, on person jumps off or on at a time, i’m guessing skill and precision are required, not optional.

You dont need all 4 monocles, you need 1 per person and you must have the True Talisman of treasure finding equipped to read the letter behind Griftah in old Shattah (Oultand) to even begin this quest chain.)

I multiboxed several dungeons with Rogue and Mage, it was insanely handy to trade appearances between classes.  Mage loots leather and even on different reamls able to trade to same faction as long as they are in party even across different realms

Hello everyone!

Here are my audios for the week.  This week's Blast from the Past is episode 363 from April 2014.  Enjoy!

Greetings to the good ship CAW,

I hope my letter finds you in fair winds, that your store of Darkbrew
Lager holds out until your next port of call, and that scurvy strikes
none of your crew.

This past week has brought me a letter from a former correspondent that
had disappeared some time ago.  I thought this person, a mage named
Ingride, had long retired and left Azeroth for good. Indeed, her letter
was quite unexpected, as she is the only Dwarf of my acquaintance. Even
though her loyalties are faulty, her information is unquestionable. For
this reason, I will continue our correspondence, and will of course keep
you informed of any information of importance.

While her recent letter did not contain anything regarding the conflict
in Zandalar, she did have an interesting tale regarding the reason she
left her cozy home, and returned to the dangers of Kul Tiras. She
herself had received information regarding a search beginning for a set
of wonderous armor from an ancient dwarven king named Aegrim. After
joining the search, Brann Bronzebeard himself directed her to search Old
Ironforge beneath the current city.

The information was correct, and she did find the ancient armor, the
Bulwark of the Mountain King, far below the city. Unfortunately, time
had wrought great damage, and the armor was shattered, perhaps beyond
repair. Upon returning to Bronzebeard with the damaged armor, she was
once more set upon a task, to journey to Thelsamar. There she was to
enlist the services of a great armorer, since retired to that quiet
town. Arriving at Thelsamar, she met with Grumnus Steelshaper, who had
dire news to impart. The flames from the Great Forge of Ironforge could
no longer produce flame with enough heat to smelt the metal of the
armor. And indeed, if it could, no dwarf currently living could
withstand the heat long enough to complete the work.

However, he did have a friend, an Earthen named Bouldercrag the
Rockshaper, whom he introduced. This Bouldercrag presented the idea that
Ignis the Furnace Master in the halls of Ulduar might prove of
assistance in raising the temperature of the Great Forge. So Ingride
made the long journey to the frozen lands of Northrend. In a great
battle, she was able to assist the Furnace Master, and obtained his
promise of assistance in return.
Upon her return to Ironforge, Ignis proved able to raise the heat within
the Great Forge. With the assistance of the Earthen Bouldercrag, Ingride
was able to resist the heat from the forge using her native stoneskin
ability, and the armor was reforged.

I find myself puzzled here, as to my knowledge, Ingride herself is an
inscriptionist of some note, currently researching Kul Tirean methods.
But perhaps all dwarves are trained in their youth with at least a basic
understanding of forge work. But, I digress.

Ingride presented the armor to Muradin Bronzebeard, and in return, he
awarded the set to her for her valiant deeds during the search and
reforging.

Her tale did bring to mind my own recent journey home to Silvermoon
City, in search of a similar set of armor from the Sunreavers. My
journey lead me to the Ghostlands, eventually ending at the Isle of
Quel'Danas. Unfortunately, this journey was so laden with ill memories
of that great loss, I find myself unable to continue writing of that
time.  Let us turn our minds to happier topics.

This is the time of the Lunar Festival, a time to revere our Elders,
shoot off firecrackers, drink too much, and dance in the moonlight.
Indeed, my friends and I have done much of all of these, and I find
myself in better spirits. Between us, we have acquired amusing new toys
this season, that will brighten up the cold dark of winter.

To all the crew of the good ship CAW, I wish a warm, light filled New
Year. I remain, as always, your friend.

Hello everyone!

Included are my weekly email and today's blast from the past.  Enjoy!

--Kyle


Greetings to Captain Aprillian, her officers, and crew of The Caw,

When last I wrote, I was concerned regarding the offer made to me to
betray the confidence of the
Dark Lady.  I did indeed contact my good friend Yllie, to whom I made
reference previously. She insists
she pronounces the Y in her name in a refined manner, sounding as an E.
I believe it makes her sound
like a milkmaid, for a more common name than Ellie cannot be found. But
I digress from my story. She
did write to me once she had established her presence here in Zandalar,
to tell me her tale.

She received a message to report to the Dark Lady in Ogrimmar, and was
sent on a mission with a
trusted member of the Dark Rangers, Lyana. The details of the mission
must remain confidential, but suffice
it to say that she was indeed approached with an offer to meet further
with certain parties that were of
much concern to the Dark Lady. Upon the meeting, actions were taken that
would most certainly put
my friend into a very bad light with the Dark Lady, should the details
become known. Yllie has
concerns that her report, made directly to the Dark Lady, may not have
been fully believed. She will
continue to search out more information regarding the possible
insurrection, and report back to me
as new developments arise.

Sometime before the Winter Solstice, I received correspondence via a
twittering bird from an old friend
of mine and yours. This friend, Leeta, made refernce to a certain
society dedicated to seeking out
secrets, and some of the recent and past discoveries. After extensive
searching, I was able to solve some
of the riddles, and for my efforts was rewarded with a new belt, and a
lovely little pet. I have included with
my letter an artistic rendering of an acquaintance wearing the belt.

Information from this same society sent me back to the Broken Shore, to
a most surly warlock name
Drak'thul. He appeared to be sorely afflicted with a sickness of the
mind, constantly whining about
hearing whispers. After much searching, and crawling around caves, the
information led me to an arduous battle, from which I emerged
victorious. My reward was a most amusing mount in the form of a gigantic
jellyfi...what was that? I couldn't quite hear you?

I close out my letter with salutations and wishes for continuing good
health, and assurances of my
continued loyalty to the Horde and the Dark Lady.

Your Friend,

Duvessae
