Skyshards & Transformations

It’s a little funny that I managed to get past exalted with the Golden Lotus and not see one Skyshard on my priest. Then a few months later, after getting honoured on my hunter, I still didn’t see any.

So when I decided to continue my rep grind with the faction on Tallys, I saw my first one out of the Treasures of the Vale. This gave me hope that I would see more if I continued to do the quests every day. With the Commendation boost, it helped me get to revered and exalted that much faster so I was surprised when a few days later I received a key and two Skyshards from two different mobs in the Vale.

In other news, I was able to try something new with Cool the other day…


If you like temporary transformations, this is a cute little addition. Just emote the adorable little panda cub by your Pandarian portal in your Capital City with a /hug, /love or /pat, the next time you’re there to receive a Magic Bamboo Shoot.

The illusion will last 10mins and allow you to cast spells but will lose the effect once you take damage (unless you use Ai-Li’s Skymirror). It’s also a conjured item so be sure to use it before you log out.

This of course called for a road trip or should I say scenic flight…

Smite apparitions!

Shit, I just remembered I forgot to do it on two of my toons today… still no mask and I won’t hold my breath for the mount but I’ll keep going until it’s over for another year.

  1. The real disappointment for the mask, unless we’re doing something wrong, is that it’s not transmoggable. It would look brilliant on an undead otherwise :-(

  2. I just did it once to get the neck for my Warlock. I’ve lost hope of ever getting the mount to drop but good luck. I’m still at two skyshards.

    • Sprowt – At this stage, I’m just hoping to get it, but that would be great. =/

      Tome/Matty – Maybe we can all keep each other motivated to get the rest. Here’s hoping…

      Pando – I know, isn’t that adorable? :)

  5. What a great tip! Thanks for the info re the panda – I love those little touches in the game that make it extra fun to play. Am totally going to try it out as soon as I get back online – I think patch 5.2 is loading in EU today because they’ve had nearly 12 hours of scheduled server ‘downtime’….fingers crossed! Thanks again for the tip.

  8. I didn’t realize it would work on the mounts. That’s something I will need to try.
