Yesterday I became exalted with the Huojin Pandaren earning me the Pandaren Embassy achievement (as well as for the Guild). Although with normal reputation grinding behaviour, I still had to get that bar full so instead of doing one more dungeon, I decided to head back into Blackrock Mountain for some more classic raid farming. The other day I noticed the mobs inside BRD giving me Huojin rep, albeit not much, but I decided to go back there and get my last few hundred.
After a while, I noticed some mail from Lorewalker Cho only to realise that he sent me the Pandaren Kite String as a reward.
The mount special animation makes the kite sway left, then right, do a twirl then right itself. Remember that you can only do this while on the ground though.
What I didn’t remember until now was the fact you can buy an Artisan shirt depending on your rank within the Guild. The three versions are for the officer, member or initiate ranks which all cost 180G with the bartering perk.
I can’t say that the shirts really appeal to me being just cosmetic but it’s nice to know that you can show some Guild pride without having to detract from your current set (sans tabard). It’s too bad that the kite looks just like the paid flights around Pandaria but then again, a mount’s a mount, right?
When Guild Perks and reputation were first introduced to the game, it was such a daunting task for a Guild of two. At the time, it was our Guild of alts (on a new server) so Cool and I weren’t really working at our Guild reputation. However, it was something that I longed to do for a Guild that I loved so much.
When I finally moved my main back to MischiefUs, it was at a time when I thought I could put everything I had into getting all those delicious Guild achievements and potential perks. But with two main players, it proved very difficult and mostly impossible. There were times though when some were never so sweet.
By the time we started inviting people again, we had reached Perk 6 so we were looking forward to reaching any new ranks we happened to get with the added help. But after some ‘events’ and a much needed hiatus in April, Cool and I started playing again in the Guild that I wanted to love again. It took a long time to feel that I wanted to stay on when my server had so many bad memories.
That’s why my beta invite came as such a perfect time. It gave me a way to immerse myself into a game I had played for so long while experiencing everything that was new, bold, humorous and visually stunning. Even with all the bugs, it was hard not to feel hopeful about what this new expansion was bringing.
With the changes to guild reputation, it’s been even more motivating trying to get the last 7 or so levels for the Guild as a two-person show. But late last night it happened.
MischiefUs has finally reached it’s 25th perk!
As we look to the future, I look forward to the rest of our journey. All I can say is, it’s certainly been a long one and I can take off that tabard :D
Last night I noticed we were 99% into Rank 22 for the Guild so I knew we would get it that last % doing our dailies today. However, the first thing we did this morning was visit with Cool’s Blingtron 4000. Only I didn’t expect us to reach Rank 23 picking up the daily quest he offers. I don’t think there’s been a better way to gain a rank than from a daily like this, am I right?
