When Coolidge first told me about the maces in the Siege of Orgrimmar, I admit I was jealous – just as he predicted. I’m just not sure why they had to have strength on them. Personally I think intellect would have been a better choice but maybe that’s just me. Over the past few months I had pretty much forgotten about their existence until a couple of days ago when I was updating one of my old transmogs in MogIt.
Wishing we had bubble wands to use (especially as disc priests) is nothing new for me. I’ve mentioned it a few times over the years so when I thought about my chibi commission by Sleepingfox, how could I not include one?
I had a pretty clear idea of how Cymre should look including all the components I love about my priest and things I associate with my character. Looking at her now, I think the only thing missing is a pet.
Over the last week or so, I’ve been seeing how close I can get to Jakur’s spawn spot using Falling Flame. You may have seen my other video about one of my earlier trials but if you’d like to know how not to use Falling Flame with Levitate, let me enlighten you.
Since then, I’ve tried using it with my soulstone but by then I only had a couple of charges left. That means I might end up farming another one.
I’m really curious to know how many times I’ve killed this rare because I still haven’t managed to get his drop. I mean seriously Blizz, how many times do I need to kill this guy?
WTB better RNG!
To top it off, I’ve had no luck upgrading either of my weapons. I’ve been doing the last section of SoO and was surprised to go into a fresh run on a Saturday (even if we zoned in staring at the first boss). It was going fine until we reached Garrosh. There were a few issues with the tank positioning Garrosh all over the place and some Iron Stars wiping most of the raid. We ended up killing him with three determination just after I was punted up the wall on the second last attempt.
The things you do just to upgrade a weapon…
Here’s hoping my luck changes next week.
For the month of March, I’m celebrating the colour orange as part of Jstmel’s transmog challenge. This also happened to be the perfect opportunity to create a mog around the Robes of the Battleguard. I’ve always loved the look of these Princess Leia dresses but they can also be a little tricky to style.
Atum was the ancient Egyptian god who symbolised the setting sun so with that in mind I wanted to design a smokin’ theme.
These days, farming the Circle of Flame is a lot easier given the conveniently placed mole machines inside BRD. Initially, I used my Direbrew Remote to get to the Grim Guzzler and picked up my obligatory Dire Brew when I reached the top of the bar. From there, I made my way into the Chamber of Enchantment. The hard part was getting the item to actually drop from Ambassadar Flamelash.
Circle of Flame, Mantle of Closed Doors, Robes of the Battleguard, Ebony Flame Gloves, Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Cloudscorcher Leggings, Footwraps of the Oracle, Spire of Coagulated Globules
Some of these I already own including the priest only footwraps from AQ and PVP belt. The Doomcaller’s Footwraps (which are the warlock equivalent) may offer a better match but I wanted to add a little more green to complement the belt. However, if you’re using a two-piece set, the Firescribe Dagger and Igniter Rod are a couple of alternatives.
It’s getting hot in here…
From the writings of Abd Al-Hazir:
“Some devious little goblins have been
robbing our merchants! When pursued,
they simply open portals and disappear
with a most aggravating chuckle. The
peasantry seem to believe that the
Goblins serve a great demon lord
known as Greed and furthermore, that
their portals lead to Greed’s domain! A
ludicrous notion, truly.”
Watch your coin purse, adventurer.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from his abilities or animations but when you summon him, you can hear gold jingling. He will also throw handfuls of gold every now and then (which can’t be picked up) and got a real kick out of his death animation. It’s just what you’d expect if you’ve killed one in D3 (as seen towards the end of the video).
As usual, you can see all his abilities (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Dodge, Magic Sword, Sear Magic and Portal) over my usual circuit of tamers in Pandaria. I forgot to change one of my teams during the Flowing battle but it still worked out – the result of not levelling any pets for several weeks, I guess.
Having both Wild Magic and Dodge seems pretty OP (especially during that one fight) but if you don’t mind his constant cackle, he’s a pretty fun pet to have around.
Just remember, keep and eye on your coin purse.
