So many things to do and no clones to do them. Oh well, I think I still did ok.
First off, we headed out to the Isle of Thunder, meeting up with Lor’themar and completing our dailies. We managed to kill one of the rares as well as summon up something. I was a little surprised to find both of the two new JC recipes from quest mobs though.
I also managed to locate and capture all four wild pets on the Isle, even though two had phasing issues but you’ll find the ‘Interact with target’ works a treat or ‘click to move’ once you locate one just outside the border of the area. One of the battles scored me a Flawless Battle-Stone as well.
One thing had me stumped though and that was taking over the farm. To begin, head over to Nana Mudclaw to pick up her quest – Inherit the Earth. Basically she wants Yoon to take her place on the Tillers council so you pass along her message. Once that’s done you can turn the quest in to Nana and head back to your farmhouse to find the Farmer’s Journal on the floor. This will allow you to set your hearth there (if you wish) but the house already acts as an inn (once you’re exalted with the Tillers and have all 16 plots available). You’ll also notice the mailbox name has changed (I think it should say Cymre’s Mailbox though).
The Beasts of Fable questline took a lot longer than I had anticipated to compile since I was doing the quest as I was writing it up so I really took my time with it. The Red Panda pet is so cute, just look at that face! I only hope the other three pets won’t be so hard to come by. However, I suspect they will be from previous experience.
In other news, due to the patch happening overnight, I missed out on doing my daily battle with Jeremy ‘the Weasel’ Feasel. When I caught up with him today, he still had no eye for me. I even did a few of the dailies at the Faire to try for the new hats but nada!
Galleon showed up later in the Valley so I managed to snag another kill and fished up some Golden Carp for a fishing quest. I even looted one of the bonus fish that Nat Pagle likes and helped fish up Krakkanon but he only dropped a stack of the local fish for me so I probably won’t do that again.
So how did your day fare? I hope it was eventful :)
We don’t get many Guild achievements so I was surprised when A Daily Routine finally popped after turning in one of my Golden Lotus Dailies. As a reward, you get the Battle Standard of Coordination which should come in handy for the new rep grind.
I also nudged Cool to get his Roll Club achievement while the daily was up so I was happy to see he did after a few tries.
The other day I was excited to get Survival Ring of Flames done on my hunter without even trying that hard (having done it on Cymre sometime earlier). It was quite funny seeing my grub doing somersaults though. One of the few memories I’ll have while I still had one; although a random comment I received while doing a recent event boss comes to mind when he said “OMG! Why that pet?” I was quite amused at the time.
Why? Well why not?
Then today, while doing the dailies on my hunter, I became sidetracked when I spotted one of Portent‘s tracks leading back towards the ruins. So I took a detour as there was one last colour I had yet to see in the wild – red.
Woot! I now have all four in my collection (although not in my stable). I had tamed the blue and green that first night, but then decided to tame the organic looking one in the water as part of the Golden Lotus chain.
That was later replaced by the purple version but when I saw this red one today, I was tempted to tame it too. It’s sad to think I’ve had to abandon a lot of pets already to house all the new ones I’ve accumulated since Mists went live.
Really Blizz, WTB more stable slots but how many would really be enough?
In Uldum, the same thing happened while camping Madexx a long time ago. I had the red and black one tamed while I longed to see the blue and green one, which I eventually did see (and tame). Sadly, I don’t have images of all the colour variants though.
Lastly, I’ve decided to just do the Golden Lotus dailies on Cym since Skyshards will now be Bind on Account after tonight. Whoo hoo!
Now to wait until the Patch goes live… what will you do first when you log in tomorrow? I suspect mine will be pet related :)
With less than a day to go before the expansion goes live, it’s time to do some spring cleaning. The beta has been purged from my system after five months of testing, blogging and research. Tonight I spent quite a while going through my bank, bags and Guild bank to see how much space I could gain once the levelling starts. The good news is, I gained quite a bit from items I wouldn’t miss too terribly.
There are so many ways to go once that countdown hits zero. I could do the introductory quest in Org to head out to Pandaria, level a Panda though the starting zone, work on my professions or begin pet battling. Blizzard has stated that you won’t even need to log out as you’ve had to previously so wherever you are in the world, you’ll get the introductory quest to start you on your way as well as the XP bar. At least that’s the plan, according to GC *fingers crossed right? For me though, I plan on waiting a bit before I head to Pandaria, at least until things die down a bit.
So with Mists of Pandaria going live in less than 18hrs now, what kind of last minute preparations are you doing for release and what do you plan to do once it’s live?
Whatever you decide, I’ll see you in Pandaria :)
