It can be an expensive task power-levelling a profession on a faction with limited resources. I’m so used to having pretty much anything at my disposal on my main faction/server but when I recently dropped one profession for another (on Alliance), I slowly worked on getting my enchanting back to where it was and more.
Yesterday, I spent a while farming up infinite dust having run out of funds and looking for where to go. In the end, I headed over to Dalaran to run-through the three ICC dungeons (having not done them on my level 88 priest). This gave me enough materials to get from 369 to 390 enchanting for Abyssal Shatter. If you’re lucky, shattering the Abyss Crystals will give you 10x Infinite Dust (or between 2-6x Greater Cosmic Essence) each time.
With the materials on hand, I was able to level up to 417 without having to buy any extra materials (except recipes from the trainer) which isn’t bad for an extra 48 skill points.
At the moment, I’m stuck on Hypnotic Dust, so I’ve been farming in Deepholm for the cloth and greens. Unfortunately, this has netted me more Lesser Celestial Essence from making the Deathsilk Bracers rather than dust. On another note, I looted two lockboxes which I’ve been having trouble opening after my lack of proficiency after dropping BS’ing. Two did try… a 40 something rogue who was too low and Veluxia on her lock. Turns out the explosives were too low as well. Sadly, I did still possess a key for someone to use (from levelling up my BS’ing) but that didn’t pan out either.
The other day I was meaning to take a pic with Veluxia after running into her at the AH but I only thought of it after the fact. So today, I took the opportunity to fix that. However, there was one thing bugging me big time – my unmogged set! Urg, questing and dungeon gear just wasn’t cutting it so I headed to the transmogrifier and loaded up my items to mog but… I had no gold. How embarrassing. :P
Levelling two professions was taking everything out of me. Luckily for me, Vel knew my predicament and offered to give me some Gold, allowing me to mog my set after all. <3
I liked how we both sported sets using a different predominant colour, although being a Horde player I was sporting blue and Vel was sporting red as Alliance.
Look at that! A Grand Marshal title. You can’t see it but I always sport my Lieutenant Commander title which is the highest title I achieved before they removed them from the game.
From there we started talking about being Disc priests, pet battling, PVP battles and stones (or lack thereof) before I headed off to do my dailies on Horde.
So thx for the chat and loan Veluxia, it’s always nice to find someone who has so many similar interests, even though I’m not so dedicated in my pet levelling and PVP battles. :P
Today, Cool and I completed our Test of Valour quest as part of Wrathion’s legendary chain. The great part was the ability to follow your progress by tracking the achievement so I knew we’d be a little bit short from last week.
The question is now, how are we going to get the next bit done – A Change of Command. We were going to see how doable this was with just the two of us but when we ventured into his room, he wasn’t there. This made me wonder how long it takes for him to respawn as his corpse was nowhere to be seen.
We also wondered if we’d be flagged or not by attacking him. When I asked on Twitter the response was no (at least from what he remembers). So we may try this on the weekend as well as the two BGs that I haven’t tried before. It should be interesting.
In other news, we’ve been levelling our Draenei a bit. The great thing about levelling them together is we can pick and choose which chains we do since we’ve done them all at least once now. I particularly didn’t want to do the bit with the Jade shipments and the Sha so we skipped quite a lot of the storylines once we hit 86.
Last night I managed to see the Darkmoon Rabbit just chilling in his cave so decided to hang around for a bit to see who turned up for a kill. It was late though and only one worgen turned up before getting a rather nasty wakeup call before rezzing and then riding off on his strider. A little bit later, Navi convinced me to get a raid going and before long we had killed him with 14 in the raid. Unfortunately, no winning roll on the rabbit but you can only try, right? It’s also Day 3 with Jeremy with no sight of the Eye yet… =/. A few more days to go before he’s off for another month though… wish me luck (again).
GL to those still needing it which is pretty much most of the Pet Battlers I know.
Ah, the Darkmoon Rabbit. A foe I’ve encountered several times but managed to kill twice. My first raid on the beta was… interesting to say the least. When he went live, I didn’t expect to win the pet on my first try but was happy to get the achievement.
Now just look at that face…
I happened to die twice during the encounter but was fortunate enough to get a battle rez after the first death – maybe because I was the top healer at the time. The guy who won rolled an 80. I sure hope he uses him well since I saw the rabbit on Alliance side for 300K the other day. Times like that I wish I had gold over there but not for that price.
Later on, I was Pet Battling in the Valley when I saw in general: Chief Salyis yells “Loot and pillage, bwahahaha!” so I went to get a closer look. I thought he would be engaged already with one side or the other but it seems to be the zone wide alert when he spawns.
I decided to hang around a minute to see what happened. Sure enough, there was a raid forming so I joined. Someone said he only spawns every three days so I felt really lucky to see him. In fact, this is only the second time I’ve seen him on live servers.
Even with a group of Alliance trying to flag people, we managed to kill it without much trouble. I was really happy to win the Robes of Blue Skies and thought I may as well use my extra roll too. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I also won the Stomphowl Pendant.
It’s a little funny that the day I finally decided to mog my set (since setting foot in Pandaria), ended up being the shortest mog ever.
The evening ended with a wave from Veluxia, a fellow pet battler I see often – more often than not with her inner focus going – although I only see the glowy balls during a tamer battle. I did accidentally do the same thing the other day coming out of a dungeon though :P I even gave a 30min tutorial to someone about Pet Battling, when he started asking me questions about it, part of my #26Acts perhaps?
