Digital Deluxe Edition Upgrade
The digital deluxe edition will be available to purchase on May 18th and include:
The Reawakened Phase-Hunter mount, a creature that draws on the otherworldly energies that transformed Draenor into Outland, for use only in Burning Crusade Classic and designed to match the look of the original expansion
The Viridian Phase-Hunter mount, a variant for use in modern World of Warcraft (including Shadowlands) and reflecting the game’s current visual style
A Dark Portal Hearthstone for use in Burning Crusade Classic, providing a unique visual effect inspired by the gateway between worlds (This item was previously released in the old TCG)
The Path of Illidan toy for Burning Crusade Classic, which causes your character’s footsteps to leave flickering fel fire in their wake for a short time (This item was previously released in the old TCG)
The Dark Portal Pass, which boosts one character to level 58 (same restrictions as standalone Dark Portal Pass apply; cannot be combined with standalone Dark Portal Pass purchase)
The boosted character will receive:
Apprentice Riding skill (+60% ground speed)
Weapon skills up to level 58
Access to certain flight paths
A set of level 58 magic (green) quality gear
Up to four Runecloth Bags (14 slots each)
A little bit of gold to start their journey
30 days of World of Warcraft game time, providing access to WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic, and the modern game
Character cloning costs $35USD (Character cloning is the service to create a copy of your toon on an additional Vanilla Classic server so you can keep a Vanilla version of it too.)
Thanks Constraxx for getting me the Long Forgotten Hippogryph!
Clashing Time in game vs Chores out of game, repeating content for Anima and doing World quests for Anima Conduit Rewards, yet another grind to entertain. 25 anima to power the conduit and 2 small rewards for additional world quest in court of harvester + 125 reputation with court of harvesters. Paragon Cache for Revendreth this week, only gold in the cache.
Sold 3 vials of the Sands, competition heating up for mats on the Auction House, farming is cost effective at times. Sold several plate gear of 168 iLvl to fresh 60’s on my home realm. Mats to craft vary wildly depending on Day of the week and time of day.
Put the Lunarfall inn back in my garrison and started leveling more followers, apparently there are over 500 for Warlords of Draenor, gonna test that theory.
Many Many Missions off the mission table, I use iPhone 12 Pro Max, works like a charm, I check the mission table 4 times a day without going to my covenant, and twice a day I turn in Anima at the Sanctum the mobile version is almost as good as the in-game version.
Lots of pet battles with Dwarven Shaman to level up 2 or 3 levels this week.
Borrowed Power and the state of the game.
Accolonn’s solution to one of the problems with the game and the relevancy of the content.
Player housing, cosmetics and the acquisition.
The Troll Hunter reached 50 and the Forsaken Priest is 37.
The Priest has unlocked artisan tailoring and is now skill 255 and has started working with Runecloth. Now she only needs, or you only need to reach skill 275 to learn Outlands tailoring or any other profession upgrade for Outlands, since there is an overlap of 25 skill points.
The Hunter is at Skinning skill 300 and Mining skill 200.
Next goal is getting Mining to 245 to get access to Thorium for arrows.
Long time! Long submission! Xoxo
Have a great day!
