This morning I finally maxed out on engineering – woot! The guide I was following only indicated 1x Spirit of Harmony to level out the Pandaria requirement but that was dependant on whether I had any more spirits at my disposal. This ‘cheaper’ option forces you to make in excess of 20 something Thermal Anvils which happened to be the route I took with my pali but I definitely didn’t want to go down that road again.
Months later, I’m still left with 13 anvils so it was an easy decision to go the other way. It’s just a shame my bags were struggling with the overflow of mats. Just as well I also have a guild bank to use although if you saw it right now, you’d think a bomb had exploded.
The day I decided to drop enchanting for engineering involved a quick look through my bag to see what I could safely destroy. This consisted of a very short list indeed – my 400 and something dinosaur bones and my 4x Spirits of Harmony. Funnily enough, I ended up needing 6x Spirits of Harmony which proved more difficult to procure, once I realised the need for them.
Yesterday, I spent quite a bit of time trying to accumulate enough motes so I could complete my last 19 points of engineering. After making ONE Thermal Anvil for one point, I had to think of a good way to farm a lot more. I had already completed the Troves of the Thunder King scenario so I queued up for the last section of SoO but didn’t walk out with any (although I did get a weapon upgrade finally).
I also tried fishing up some Sealed Crates at the Darkmoon Faire but there weren’t many crates to be found. I resorted to farming mobs on the Timeless Isle and planting Songbell Seeds for a guaranteed harvest. At 3am, I was able to make Lord Blastington’s Scope of Doom closely followed by a Long-Range Trillium Sniper. With 9 points left to go, I typed up a game ticket asking for the return of my 4x Spirits of Harmony. Thankfully they were waiting in the mail as soon as I logged in this afternoon so I made another scope and Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling to finish.
So to celebrate my newest engineer, I’d like to find a home for my Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling. I realise this isn’t a new pet for many but for the few who don’t have one, let’s see what kind of creativity this could generate.
All you have to do is come up with a short story or image (may be painted/drawn) featuring the pet, myself and your toon. Don’t forget to leave your toon name and server with your entry.
Feel free to email your entries to my bubblesofmischief gmail account (particularly if it’s an image). I will post all the entires on 16 March giving you a week to get an entry in.
