This week in WoW:
Day of the Dead
Battle of Azeroth Bonus Event begins
PvP Brawl: Temple of Hotmogu ends
World Quest Bonus Event ends
Pre-patch Event starts on Nov. 10th
Expansion launches on Nov. 23rd
WoW Birthday is on Nov. 23rd, so they started
WoW Birthday Event today ending it on Nov. 22nd, so you wouldn’t get
The 16% bonus when leveling in the new areas.
What We've Been Doing:
Allied Race unlock : Mechagnomes, half hazardly killed king mechagon and retrieved mechatorkk life pod, then followed a short scenario quest line to unlock the mount.
A few attempts on Arthas’s life with no anticipation for the Reins of INVINCIBLE yet. Pets galore on runs, a few transmog. A lot of Cloth.
Massive amount of time spent on Auction House for very little profit.
PvP in Legion to get some Marks of Prey to Rep up with Talon’s Vengeance.
Long-forgotten Hippogryph attempt : Ephemeral crystal pic …
Finally got (almost) all pets to max level, so many that warcraft pets website tells me my average pet level is now 25.0.
There are some pets left to level and some can’t be leveled.
Some are still not blue quality, but combined those i can still work on, number in the single digits.
Next i’m starting on collecting the wild pets i don’t have yet, so there are still enough work to be done, 954 unique pets, according to the in-game pet journal.
Picked up the 7 items i still needed from the Day of the Dead holiday, 5 toys and 2 transmogs
Worked on some achievements:
Cursed Game Hunter Killing one of each cursed animal in Drustvar.
Drust the Facts, Ma’am Find and read all of the Drust Stele listed.
Leveling Gnome Hunter
Hunting the Ruby Droplet pet from the Timeless Isle.
I finally have most of the patch downloaded, yay! I log in and blizzard tells me my video card is out of date. Boo! I could still play and it looked fine, but I'll have to get around to updating that soon. Most of my game time was just tinkering and doing odds and ends, basically logging into characters to tell them that I acknowledge their existence and we will play together soon as I updated their talents and action bars with the new spells and abilities.
The Blast from the Past for today is from episode 425. 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: Character Achievements.
Character Achievements is an addon that modifies the display of achievements in order to easily distinguish those earned by your current character and those earned by another character on your account. A check button is added to the Achievement Frame that allows for quick and easy switching between the styles and updates your achievement points accordingly.
