Last night I managed to get the last of my gold ready for our challenge mode runs this afternoon. The runs went pretty smoothly with a couple of stuffups here and there but all-in-all it was a lot of fun. I made sure I had all the consumables needed and even though I was initially excited to dps as disc, we would have had two disc priests in the group which is too much of a good thing imo.
I specced over to shadow (using my normal set) with only some flasks and invisibility pots on hand (the rest I banked). They recommended only 6 but I brought 20 beforehand. Thanks so much to the guys from Blackrock – Sonofalich, Ctwin, Stormbringer and Acidik.
It was exciting to collect my egg from the mail as I wondered which colour I would pick – until I had to clear some room for my Light Regalia set. Looking through my ever bulging bags and bank, here are my favourite weapon combos.
So what mount did I pick? The Reins of the Ashen Pandaren Phoenix. I know we’ll get all colour variations soon but I thought it was the nicest of the four and looks great with this set.
Cool completed his straight after mine with fewer stuffups in fact. Probably since they were getting tired or extra twitchy from multiple coffee refills while one was itching for a long bio break. :P
Here we are in our glorious sets.
Lastly, with the huge number of achievements just from challenge modes, I managed to crack the 18,000 mark which included The Shado-Master.
Thanks again guys and a special thanks to Navi for the introduction and help with the transfer. :)
After deciding to finally go for the Priest Challenge Mode set, I’ve been looking at what I can do to improve my levels of success. There seems to be a lot of material at our disposal which makes it a lot easier going into these for the first time.
Some guides seem to favour spirit over more crit and haste but for easy reference, here’s what I’ll be focussing on as a starting point. The following table was listed as BIS so I’ll probably just use the items I have readily available to me. As a new engineer, I never made the goggles so that will the first piece I’ll work on. From there, I’ll adjust accordingly.
