After waiting to travel to the Horde side of things, I finally leveled up my druid to 120 yesterday. Naz had been leveling slowly over the past month or so. Last week I decided I would go over and join him and the guild and do some leveling. I still refuse to do anything associated with the war (For the Alliance!) but I am working on finishing the 3 zones up. I am enjoying the quest chains and love the baby fox people. Now that we are 120 we can start working on farming the drop for the Pterrordax Egg. Once we have a baby we can smuggle him over to Lilly and Lauria.
Naz also got Sambas while we were heading out to get gear from Arathi rares. I always check and found him again today! No wolf though. So I’ll have to keep an eye out. Naz is lacking in the pet collecting for his hunter.
While we currently don’t have much time due to rl we are trying to finish a few things up. We are still working on leveling our next ally set, but since they started at 1, it is a bit of a journey. Lilly and Lauria are still working on getting all their reps to exalted, though we have got a few of the new horses so far. We also got our dwarves unlocked and created. They are also both adorable little shaman. Even though I moved Clover to ally, I needed two.
Last month we hit 7 years since the creation of Myth. This year we didn’t have a party because I need about 20 more hours in a day right now. We will be having a holiday party to make up for it though. We are also currently in the process of overhauling the guild website. Which is a big pain, but hopefully will end up being worth it.
Since moving to Dalaran with only a few toons we are having to level all our professions once again. So I decided to go on a little mining adventure yesterday. While flying around I figured I would go through Twilight Highlands just in case. Not that it would ever happen but I always check. I had camped him for so long during Cata but was never lucky enough to get him. So I’m just flying around spamming my super old macro and there he was. He was just waiting to come home. I finally got him! A few years later than I wish I would have but it’s one more pet off my wish list.
On Friday I was working on Legion emissaries on Lilly. I was still missing several mounts so I try to do the ones I need when they come up and do my missions for rep tokens. Eventually, in 5 years I may have them all. But anyway I went to do Highmountain and got myself a moose. One more mount checked off my list. Still pretty far away from the next mount achievement though. Currently, it’s not super high on my to do list.
Earlier in the week we finished up with our 3 home zones. We finished all the exploration, treasures and rares (except one from Stormsong which requires the WQ to be up). We did most of the random zone achievements as well. Then we finally started working on our war campaign and the horde zones. We finished getting the outposts last night and are working on doing all the things out there. Once we started our war campaign and were able to travel to Zandalar first thing we did was pets. We got our pet achievement on Friday and we were less than thrilled with the reward. To be honest, we are less than thrilled with all the pet related things this expansion. They had sooo much potential but once again fall incredibly short. The whole pet charm system is a disaster as well if you ask me but…
We are making progress. Maybe not in the way that everyone else thinks you are supposed to make progress but for us, this way is much better.
After a hard day of treasure hunting… food and a nap.
I think it’s relatively safe to say we are a bit behind the crowd when it comes to leveling. We hit 120 on Lauria and Lilly on Saturday. This was after completing only 2 of 6 zones. While we did do all treasures, rares and every quest I still feel like that’s a bit ridiculous. Personally I think you should have to actually complete all the zones before hitting level cap, but I do know that most people don’t feel that way. Everyone else seems to just care about getting to raiding and we want to see everything before that. Blizzard though always caters to the former. So while everyone is pushing for gear we are taking our sweet time, collecting pets and killing every mob for a chance at one of the mount drops. We haven’t had any luck in that category, unless you count the fact that we each bought the mount we liked the best. Naz bought me Goldenmane and I got him the Dune Scavenger. When it comes to mounts I used all of my luck getting the fishing mount, Great Sea Ray. While fishing for the mount/ach, I ended up getting 7 before Naz got his 1 for the ach. I fished up 2 more while trying to finish the achievement for midnight salmon. So I’m assuming that the only way I will ever see any other mount this expansion is if I pay for it. Other than fishing we are just working on questing. We are finishing up our last Alliance zone before heading over to the Horde zones. So far we are both enjoying leveling and I think they did a really nice job for the zones. Though I will say that Stormsong Valley and Drustvar are much more appealing than Tiragarde Sound. Though we are only about half way through Drustvar as it seems pretty packed with quests. And also, yay human druids! If I could have them open right now, that would be great. We are not even starting with anything but questing until we are completely done with every zone. Then we will move onto the things that open up when you hit 120. Currently we are more or less ignoring the fact that we capped and just continuing with our journey. Once we finish these two up it will be onto Alakai and Uphoria. Naz has ever so slightly worked on his Horde hunter but has only just got out there. I’m still very hesitant to play Horde. I do want to have the reps open up for the allied races. But for now, I’m just working on Lilly.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to sit down and write anything or make any updates to our blog. Real life got insanely hectic and most other things were put on the back burner. Since last year a million things have happened with WoW. But one thing in particular is above all…
Back in Cata we made the decision to move to Kil’Jaeden and become Horde. A few years later we moved to Zul’Jin for a better server community. We stayed Horde during this and moved our guild right along with us. Now, while the guild remains on Zul’Jin, Lauria and Lilly have finally gone home. (We are not playing Alliance on ZJ though. Different servers for different factions.) I’m not going to get into the Horde vs. Alliance discussion because that is not one that will end well and honestly I don’t care about other people’s opinions on the matter. We made the best decision for us; the best decision for Lauria and Lilly. We went back to the Alliance. The majority of our toons will remain on ZJ but some will be making the journey back to Stormwind in the near future. We are not abandoning our guild due to moving these toons. We will continue to play on both servers, both factions, one of us more so than the other though… One of us is having many more problems with the current story line but I will continue to be a part of Myth, even if it is on a less regular basis.
We are continuing our hunt in collecting all the things. Upon the drop of the pre-patch we both received the achievements for 350 mounts and 400 toys. Naz got the 90 rep achievement, but I’m slacking and only got the 80 ach. I’m currently 3 reps away due to not finishing my re-grind of the goblin reps after Bloodsail, and my Sholazar basin rep after finishing both and switching back but forgetting about it after hitting honored again… So I’ve got some extra things on my to do list. Along with all of that, I’m still forever collecting all the mog. We will be working on doing lore master on all armor types during BFA while we level new toons so we can get every piece of quest gear available. So we have our work cut out for us.
With the expansion right around the corner we are very much still at the ‘I need more time before BFA drops’ stage. Which I think we have been at since the release date was announced. We are more behind this expansion than we have ever been before but I’m trying to get over that and just do what we can and go from there. We had a lot of toons that we never even touched during Legion. A lot of achievements we never got. A lot of mog we forgot we should have been doing LFR weekly for. Class mounts that we didn’t get. It’s a long list of what we will still need to do from Legion during BFA. But it’s almost here and with that comes a brand new, super long list. I am looking forward to it though. I hope the expansion will be better than Legion. I was not very impressed. I’m so excited about the new races that will be released during BFA that it might make up for whatever mess the rest of the expansion is. Human druids ftw!
Between leveling all our new Alliance toons, all the new content, and real life, I will be trying to update all of our toon pages, etc in the near future. Though how quickly this will happen, I do not know.
“They called the tree Teldrassil, meaning “crown of the earth” in Darnassian. The night elves made their home of Darnassus in the boughs of Teldrassil, creating a forest of mighty trees and flowing rivers, bathed in the endless night that fell over the lands of the elves from the dawn of time.”
“You can kill us, but you cannot kill hope.”
“There would be no pain in the lady’s light, in the lady’s love. There will be justice one day, but eyes other than ours will behold it.”
I have been trying to cross off some of my mog runs for the week when I have time (which lately is sparingly). This afternoon I went and ran ToT for the random mog I’m missing, since I’m done with the rogue set, and for a chance at the mounts. Unexpectedly, Horridon gave it up. Naz was offline and I was alone, so he missed his chance. I would have given it to him. I do like the bird better, but Naz really loves it, so that would have been depressing if it had dropped instead.
On another note, I finally finished up another mog set. Lilly is up to 45/49 with the Nighthold LFR set complete. I had all but one piece for soooo long. I was missing the boots, which drop in EN off Xavius. I ran that every week on Lilly and Aiden for a shot to get them, plus bonus rolls. Took forever, but glad that’s out of the way. Nothing like dps queue times for an old raid… Working on getting some others knocked out, but getting loot from old LFRs is horrible. I’m getting used to walking away with no gear and only like 80g from the whole endeavor. To make myself feel better I did throw 10k at the AH for random greens I was missing the other day. Collect all the things, even if nobody else knows about them.
When they added the new rogue pick pocketing I was happy I would never have to go back to WoD to farm it. I got Naz and I both of the new pets. But then I stopped. I worked on it off and on to get the mog. Last week I went and farmed the large bulk of it to buy the toys. I had forgotten one of the masks but I finally went back out today to finish it up. I’m glad to have at least one thing crossed off my list.
This week we have both been trying to finish up our classes that we already have to 110. This has involved a lot of Broken Shore. Which I’m completely sure nobody enjoys doing, especially after multiple times. We are trying to get the class mounts for the toons we have yet to finish. Some are faster than others. But others are requiring a bit more AP farming to get the mounts for each spec. We are making progress though. Yesterday Naz got his hunter mount for Duritz. Though he still has to finish for the other colors. Now we are trying to work on our priests. Who doesn’t want a little owl lion. Well Naz doesn’t really want it, but I do. I’m also still trying to finish up my Paladin. I’ve got two specs to 52 now but I haven’t finished up the quests yet. So for now, no mounts.
If slow and steady win the race, Naz and I are killing it this expansion. That certainly doesn’t seem like the case though.
