A couple of days ago, I was a few hundred short from becoming exalted with the Sunreaver Onslaught so I logged onto my mage to farm a key for the Troves of the Thunder King scenario. It was pretty easy just doing dailies and a few heroic dungeon/scenario runs (especially when you add the reputation perk/commendation at revered). The rest came from a handful of solo scenarios (free loot!) but I especially loved seeing the Blood Elves having more of an active involvement in this expansion, in particular Lor’themar Theron showing more of a prominent role in the war effort. This of course carries on from what we’ve already seen with the Dominance Offensive.
One of the questing perks would have to be the Saurok illusion you pick up through Stage 1.
There aren’t as many cut scenes here but the solo scenarios more than make up for it. At exalted, the main perk would have to be the key for the scenario as well as the Reins of the Crimson Primal Direhorn.
As with other faction reputations, you automatically get the Reins of the Golden Primal Direhorn which looks even better in my opinion.
All-in-all, it was a pretty easy journey to exalted as I tackled all the PVE dailies. With Stage 3 now unlocked and another rare kill under my belt, I look forward to finishing off my Isle of Thunder rares post as the rest of the Isle is revealed.
This is an achievement I was itching to get as I loved the idea of having two priests at max level, like something out of Alias (one of my favourite shows). So with Cymre as my main, I knew that my Alliance priest would be a given as to who to level up on this side – not that I had many choices anyway.
As usual, we levelled while questing in Dread Wastes, skipping a lot of quests along the way but that’s ok since we’ve played through them all before. I am looking forward to working through Operation: Shieldwall though, having read a few blog posts about it but I suspect we’ll take our time with it.
To celebrate my double achievement, I couldn’t decide which mount to use so I selected my two favourite shots.
My main focus now is to generate enough gold to buy flying in Pandaria although I don’t have my epic flying yet either. Here’s hoping all my auctions sell :P
While I was hanging around in Stormwind yesterday, I decided to check out Bizmo’s Brawlpub – the Alliance equivalent of the Brawl’gar Arena in Org. I knew it was in the Deeprun Tram, as I’d seen the raid alerts come up as soon as I enter the zone. However, from there I was a bit lost as to where to go. Luckily, Veluxia was on so I sent her a “Pst” asking where it was. Speaking of which, guess who spied me in the AH earlier… Turns out it was under the platform in the tram so as soon as you enter the area from the Dwarvern District, head down the ramp and you’ll see the underground entrance.
When I first entered the area, the place looked really familiar from some of the strategy videos I’d seen. But check out the decor… it has a totally different vibe compared to ours on Horde. I mean you could have a couple of drinks there with friends or even a candlelight dinner – if you don’t mind all the blood and violence in the background.
Some of the flavour NPCs are quite interesting too. I mean, check out this bouncer – he snarls! I thought they all did that but when I checked, I couldn’t find another one who did.
All-in-all, it was nice to see the differences compared to the one I’m used to.
