Only one week off from Children’s Week

We got the first hint at Alpha / Beta Vanilla / Classic WoW last week
Talk about stuff NOT in Vanilla / Classic vs. retail WoW



What We've Been Doing:



Aprillian



Constraxx

4th Alliance to reach Max Level, Human Warlock.
1 Character to reach Max level on 2nd account a Goblin Mage for fast transport anywhere.
1st Alliance Mage on Earthen ring to make it past 100, Worgen Arcane level 104 Mage.
Thousands of Grisly trophies were collected across 3 accounts, I can’t stop myself.

Priest, Rogue, Paladin, Warlock, all low level skilling up to level 20 to be able to collect the fragments from archeology to help speed level.

Legion Invasions / Bonus Objectives were immensely useful to blow past Legion in 2 or 3 invasions.

Battle for Azeroth Incursions when they are up, 1 character multiboxes, while the paladin collects about 20 mobs as people keep running through the zone dotting everything.

Mage needs multiple charges of Ice Block, too many deaths because frost seems to pull aggro with the bloody Water elemental.

Arcane mages seem viable no matter what kind of gear you wear.

Doing Elegon netted me a lovely pet called Comet.  Like Elegon it is translucent.
                              



Grand Nagus

The little Rogue reached Kul’Tiras and dinged 114, is 78% towards 115 now.

Hello everyone!

Here's the last installment of the way back Blast from the Past :)  In episode 124 we'll find out if Aprillian dinged 77 in time, if Ashayo actually handed over 6000 gold, and more!

Real life raid boss is tough, hopefully will get around to some sort of leveling soon ;(

This week in WoW:



What We've Been Doing:



Aprillian

Honored with Nightfallen. traded pet enchantment for Boon of Manaseeker shoulder enhancement.


Constraxx

Kul’Tiran unlocked, Started Miner/Jewelcrafter on Earthen Ring US, all professions learned and skilling up slowly.

New trinkets available from a Dwarf Near Ship in Boralus, Haste, Crit, Versatility, Cload available as well : buff to stamina / versatility, usually around 75 of the Incursion currency or so.

Slow Bleed dungeons vs Fast and Hard with the pros… 12 cataclysm dungeons or so…

Not enough for a mount or pet, but slowly building toward the 5000 needed for the final mount in timewalking…

Bought 3 toys, no idea what they were called, bought all the store encouragement gear for the invitational / PvP brackets.

New Pet available from Dwarf as well, Provisioner Stoutforge, Service Medal Quartermaster, Trinkets and Cloack become unlocked for both factions when you purchase the item desired from doing World quest tied to Incursions on the other faction, PvP not required if you do not use Warmode.  You can pull just the mobs tied to your faction if that is what you desire in Player vs Elite.


Zone Assaults, Invasions In Legion, Bonus objectives on the Hunter. Nuke player on second screen. Everything is melee just about except for mages now.  My trusted Riven Widow from Howling Fjords in North Rend provides Ancient Hysteria (enrage / heroism) Switched from Beast mastery to Survival.

Heirlooms scale poorly in Battle for Azeroth on Shoulder, chest and head slots, the iLvl is too low compared to equivalent Azerite armor, everything dies much much slower.

Two new mounts : Kul’Tiran Charger, and the proper Core Hound

And of course the new horse

How to make a few shortcuts when playing Cross faction with War Resources :
From Vindicator Jaelaana after you get the Ready for War achievement
But more closely how do you get your first 100 resource if you are flagged on Warmode?  Die over and over chasing chests or mail cross faction to your alts :


Grand Nagus

Tides of Vengeance Complete the Tides of Vengeance war campaign (doesn’t count in progress for both factions to unlock as well Kul’Tiran Humans AND Zandalari Trolls.
Sha of Fabulous Collect any Class Armor Set from the Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless Spring.
Proudmoore Admiralty Earn Exalted status with Proudmoore Admiralty faction.
Created a Kul’Tiran Druid “Nacene”.
Spirits Be With You Complete the storylines listed.
Reached level 82 on my new Gnomish engineering Gnome Rogue.
Reached skill 75 on Northrend Engineering to learn Schematic: Jeeves. You need to make it on each engineer, since this isn’t a toy. Haven’t crafted it yet, but starting to gather the mats for it.

Hello everyone!

Got another blast from the past coming your way!  Continuing the "story" from last week's episode 122.  Sorry for the length, it's almost 20 minutes, but hopefully it will be an entertaining 20 minutes.

No audio from me again, still haven't been feeling the best, constantly exhausted, and been busy with lab reports and tests to grade.
