What We've Been Doing:
Traveling all over Pandaria for the 1/2000 mount drop chance…
Leveling 3 rogues, kinda Meh being the bottom DPS, no enchants except +1 Damage on weapons and sharpened blades.
3 to 5 level gain on rested EXP + quest turn in after a few dungeons you end up with Riding speed +100% on land, 40 gold is a small sum to part with, don't know what the new leveling will bring in Shadowlands.
Clever Use of AH on 2 realms, +75k this week, not too shabby, Earthen Ring market is really hard to make progress on, almost like all my ideas have been explored there already.
Few pet sales anymore, people are focused on leveling it seems on all differrent realms all different classes, hunter, warriors and rogues at the moment are the bulk of my focus. I would like my zandalari priest to gain more levels to that end: I have reactivated my 3rd account.
Controller support for WoW coming with Shadowlands, so that will give you the option to play WoW on VR, with a proper controller.
My week in WoW:
Looted Poseidus’s mount, after the rare spawned on top of me, literally. So i have
Subdued Seahorse now, 360th mount over all, 320th character specific mount.
Mag’har Orc Warrior: Level 83
Highmountain Druid: Level 80
Dark Iron Dwarf Shaman: Reached lvl 110 and unlocked the, imo, worst looking Heritage Armor of all the races / allied races, so far. Just aweful, ugly!
Zandalari Troll ??:
Working on Fangs of the Father atm with my Gnome Rogue.
Also leveling pets with her atm, Super Squirt Day and all, started with 102 pets on the queue, down to 65 as of the start of the show, roughly.
One days worth of Rustbolt rep grind away from getting Exalted with them and unlocking the Mecha-Gnomes, not that i’m interested in playing one, but i get the Blingtron 7k schematic when i reach Exalted, and i’m 4 crates ways from 20, the price, together with some other stuff, to get the Rank 3 Essence i want.
Transmog brackets learning transmog from items that are higher level then your toon.
This week I played a lot with my Demon Hunter. I have never actually played that class before, I only finished the starting area then quit that character. So it was like a whole new game, and it was a lot of fun going through the Legion content again. I wish they would make a better shortcut to get into Battle for Azeroth content though - it feels like a really long sequence of "yep heard this story before" and "skip cinematic" before I can actually start questing again.
Today's Blast from the Past is brought to you by episode 408. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
Addon(s) of the week:
Rematch: Rematch is a pet journal alternative for managing pets and teams
tdBattlePetScript Rematch: This addon is the script selector for tdBattlePetScript
Rematch_TSMPetValues: Rematch_TSMPetValues extends the Rematch pet list by TSM market values, so you don't have to cage a pet to see its auction house item value.
