Silver and Stuffing

It’s taken some time but I managed to hit the mark for heroics today. Nagrand left me a few points short of the ilvl requirement but the epic headpiece and upgraded weapon certainly helped. Not that I’ve made myself any items to wear because I used 50 bolts of cloth to make an Elekk Plushie. Yes folks, I chose to make a battle pet over useful armour. To be honest, I was going to wait until I had finished all the zones so I...

An Aura & An Off-Hand

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been able to collect several new achievements which has been fantastic. Cool and I headed into Ulduar to try and finally get my off-hand from Algalon and when we noticed how much easier the fight was we decided to go and clear the other bosses so I could try and get my shoulders from Yogg. Hodir ended up giving us an unexpected one with two more from Freya. By the time we reached Thorim, I was...

Glory of the Pandaria Hero

Over the last few days, I’ve managed to complete the last two achievements for my Pandarian scenario and dungeon series. The hardest thing about this one was avoiding the targeting circles on the ground. Cool and I tried it once during a PUG but even when you ask if they’re willing to try the achievement, you don’t always get a response so it fails pretty quickly. Navi asked one of her guildies to join us and we...

Serendipitous

It all started when Cool asked what set he should use on his latest doodle. Since I don’t really know the Mage sets that well, I headed over to Draynee’s Mog Companion site and found the Tempest Regalia set to be quite unique.  At the same time, I don’t really do much on my mage so her gear isn’t really gemmed or enchanted (short of the tailoring ones) but I was curious to see how well I could solo Black...

Bigger Bag My Ass!

Ah, the Monstrous Spineclaw, what a painful rare to spawn. Considering the fact I’ve been trying to spawn this elusive creature consistently over the last few weeks makes for a very boring grind indeed. I suspected the Spineclaw Crab would be the last item I’d need for this mother of an achievement but it also proved to be the only thing that kept me going. Just look at that drop rate – 1.74% according to WoWHead. I...

So Close

For the past three weeks, I’ve been down to my last three items – the Ordon Death Chime, Warning Sign and the Spineclaw Crab. A couple of days ago, Cool and I were killing Flintlord Gairan when the Death Chime happened to drop – just not for me. This has happened on several occasions with the Ruby Droplet, Gulp Froglet, Pristine Stalker Hide and Sunset Stone all examples of non ‘group loot’ items. This is...
