With the prepatch catching a turtle has become much easier. There are a ton of groups in LFG for turtle farming. Naz and I decided to join one and give it a try. Naz got his Riding Turtle first, but I got mine shortly after. We now have both of the turtles and are done with WoD fishing. Can’t say I will miss that.
Along with turtles, the prepatch came out on Tuesday. Even though the demon invasions don’t begin until next week there are currently a million things to get done. First off, mog. Oh love of god. I do finally have room in my toons banks and bags, which is nice. But now I feel compelled to fill all the missing spots in my collections tab. I’m going to be at it for basically forever. Along with that they added illusions to collect for your weapons. Which means more old raids and current LFR. Then they added a bunch of toys. So camping and fighting Ally for those. There is so much to do and more to come before Legion. How people can complain that there isn’t anything to do is beyond me. They are either lazy as fuck, or they probably haven’t seen the sun in 10 years. I for one feel overwhelmed that Legion will be out in a month. I am NOT prepared.
We finished up our current set of alts today, Dig and Lullaby, making #16 for me, and #14 for Naz. I finally have a priest at max level after all this time. My poor Undead priest sat forever and never got that far. We are hoping to finish up one more set before Legion, after we gear these two up a little. I think I’m going to level a hunter next, Pandaren of course and Naz is making a Belf Pally.
I got my achievement! I’m done. I can finally breathe and play the game without stressing every second about finishing my ach before Legion. It was becoming rather stressful trying to fit in all our weekly raids, dailies, etc to try and get mounts. I got discouraged several times over the last few months when I decided to really try for it. First off, I thought I was much closer because when we started I was using my second account. I had collected several TCG mounts, a dungeon drop, and about half the Argent Tournament mounts, with the intention of merging my accounts. Unfortunately several weeks ago after putting in a ticket with Blizzard to merge them, I was informed that merging would delete EVERYTHING off my second account. All my mounts/toys/pets would be lost. I decided at that point that I was done. I had counted all my mounts and merging would have put me at my achievement. Then all the sudden it was lost and I had 11 more mounts to go. It was incredibly frustrating and made me completely want to quit trying. But Naz convinced me that we would keep going and we would get it. When I really started pushing at the end of April I had 276 mounts total (both accounts). The beginning of June I hit 300 and then got pushed back to 289. One month later and I’m done. I could not have done it without Naz constantly reassuring me that we would finish, and pushing me to do one more run. This week alone we did 16 DS runs, 6 FL runs (then the mount dropped!), killed 35 Warbringers (no mount dropped) and did a handful of UP runs. Most weeks while we were tying we got in 80+ mount attempts. Today I finished my last Argent Tournament mount and bought the Wolly Rhino (again…) which got me my ach. Now I’m going to relax and level my priest and give poor Naz a break.
On a side note, we both have our computers upgraded for Legion. I got a desktop finally and I can actually play on Ultra. Now I can see the full beauty of my Azure Cloud Serpent.
