This week in WoW:
Timewalking: Cataclysm begins
What We've Been Doing:
Sha of Fabulous
(collect a set from heart of fear, terrace of endless spring, Mogu'shan vaults)
Raiding with Leashes 6 : Pets of Pandaria
Had 4 when I started, 1 run left me with all but 3, Auction House got the last few for 500 to 1200 gold each.
Boosted a mage on 3rd account and got a Demon Hunter out of Starting Area, also got a Demon Hunter out of Starting area to round out my professions on Earthen Ring US. Currently have 3 demon hunters one Earthen Ring one Alchemist, two yet to be determined.
Leveled Horde Shaman from 89 to 104 doing Alterac Valley of Old, found some quirky healing bugs since I dont have Addon for healing, it's clear that a developer has taken some liberties with healers on Horde side. 7 to 15 healers per AV. Horde characters cling to side of buildings or top of spiked barricades, sharing of quest at the start of every Alterac Valley Hordeside. Having the mount alliance side grants it horde side. Just want to see roughly how many levels i can squeeze on the grind. Epic battle, lost 3 towers came back to win with 17+ healers 1 tank. Ranked 4th on restoration healer.
Won 60-70% of my hearthstone games, then lost 90% after the last quest was completed, ouch ouch ouch, golden players in the mix with the 500 wins in their ranked class. Most wins with Priest Deck, and Archmage Vargoth to double the spell that counts the most during my turn, Overpowered or Broken, but so much fun.
Mechwarrior 5 is out tomorrow, I got the Deluxe edition, I can't wait to ride into battle and blow up some stuff. Like any good action movie, cinematics count for a lot and the Unreal engine delivers high high quality graphics, i'm so glad I have a 4k monitor, I really should hook up another large monitor, but that means upgrading my spouse's PC and the money is just not there at the moment. So realm maintenance will be ok. Telemetry asserts that you are dropping on Target, power curve nominal, weapons online all units will report to lance leader after Hot Drop...
Double clicked on TSM classic Update and it finally self installed so I will have a rough idea what I should sell my wares for, i'm interested in Blacksmith and Engineering at the moment, tailoring is hit and miss if you dont farm recipes in dungeons.
Still working on the Battle on the Broken Isles achievement to get the token to
Get 500 more battle pet slots.
Also got Polished Pet Charmer requiring you to collect 500 Polished Pet Charms.
Reached revered with the Unshackled in Nazjatar on my Hunter and i got Seasoned: Neri Sharpfin
Did the Sin’dorei Heritage armor quest chain. It was, imo, the best one yet, and that’s saying something.
Played some Bounty Hunter in SW:TOR. I love that game’s way to tell a story, and i would wish Blizzard could learn things from it.
A busy week for me has left me with little game time that has been spent putzing about. This week's Blast from the Past went a bit further back and is a bit longer than my usual ones. We'll be exploring episode 226. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
