It’s been five months since I first logged into the Mists of Pandaria beta. My invite came at such a low time in my gaming life that I desperately needed something to take my mind off what I had just lost – the Guild I had loved for so long. I was feeling so low at the time that I needed something positive to try and take my mind off it. I also wanted to be able to share what I had experienced as the blog has given me a great creative outlet over the past ten months. It’s hard to believe that my first Blogiversary is coming up in a couple of months.
So as the beta draws to a close, I wanted to take a moment to look back on what I’ve accomplished and what I will miss.
This mount was automatically given to players as I found her sitting in my mount journal, as with the two engineering mounts.
As soon as I saw that The Lorewalkers rewarded you with this awesome looking mount, I set off to obtain it with minimal effort once I reached level 90.
I spent A LOT of time obtaining as much information as I could for the Pet Battle System. It wasn’t just exciting to try out the process because I saw it as a great opportunity to catch as many pets as I could. See the ‘Pet Battles’ tab above for all the info. In a few days I will be starting from scratch but I’ve gained some valuable experience from it all.
It was actually quite easy to get exalted with all The Tillers once I had done the research.
These sets were freely available to players once you had reached max level. It was a clear upgrade to what we had accumulated from dungeons and quest rewards.
Here you can see a lot of the activities I’ve dabbled in over the past couple of months. Although I really only focused on a few of them once I hit max level – which came quite late in the beta.
There were so many things I immersed myself in without feeling like I’d spoiled myself with the quests and story. I know I’ll be at a definite advantage when it comes to the factions, dailies and landmarks. As a certain old school druid once told me – know your terrain. I know what I’ll be focusing on when it hits midnight on the 25th.
So here’s to the last five months.
I hope you’ve enjoyed experiencing the beta with me for those who haven’t been avoiding my blog. I know I’ve gained some new readers from it and I hope to keep you interested in whatever else I uncover in the future :)
Not long to go now…
