Mr Bigglesworth

I was so happy to get the Anubisath Idol yesterday that I was hoping to see the Untamed Hatchling and Chrominius to finish off the set. But after my previous runs on multiple toons, I caved and bought the last two from the AH.

Anubisath Idol

Doesn’t he look awesome?

I figured I could make this up by doing dailies, etc… eventually.



Once the achievement popped up I was anxious to see Mr Bigglesworth but was a little curious when the pet wasn’t in the journal. There was no mail icon either but I figured it might just take a bit of time to get to me. In the end, after a couple of pet battles, I used my Revive Battle Pets spell which refreshed the journal and BAM! There was my reward.


Just look at those whiskers

I’m not sure that I could think of a better reward to get for such an achievement so thx Blizzard for allowing us to solo those classic raids.


After getting the third pet I needed in AQ today, I headed into BWL to try and get the last two remaining for Raiding with Leashes. It was pretty uneventful going in on our Hunter and Druid but boy was it a different story on our Mage and Lock. First off, we weren’t attuned for BWL so we fixed that quick smart. Turns out we’d never cleared UBRS either.

Once we headed into BWL, I wasn’t expecting this…

Vaelastrasz the Corrupt

Cool carked it about a second after he rezed me, luckily he soulstoned himself before the fight.

On Broodlord our pets kept doing silly stuff. At one stage Cool couldn’t find his minion but then realised that he was still fighting whelps on the first level while we were upstairs. After we started on the boss, Cool was getting ping-ponged across the floor when my elemental was glitched on the wall so his health reset. Once I had resummoned him, it took about a minute before Cool asked where the boss was. LOL! It seems his demon was bounced onto the level below and guess who followed suit?

But that was shortly forgotten when I saw this…

Ringo boots

Really? Ringo, you’ve got some explainin’ to do.

Out of all the times I went to BWL on Cymre to try and get Ringo’s Blizzard Boots and they drop not once but twice off the same group of mobs…

Shadow More or Less

During our Heroic today, we decided to go in as DPS for a change. All was going quite well in Stormstout Brewery until we killed the last boss and Cool said “you let the other ret pali beat you on DPS with a green weapon?” At that moment I decided to open my character tab as I remembered something that I noticed this morning – on armory I still had my dagger on (with no off-hand) from yesterday’s Viscidus fight. Whoops.

Although I was doing a lot of Pet Battling last night so guess what else I had on?

I laughed and told Coolidge to inspect me. I said “yeah, look at what two items I have on.” He picked up my hat and weapon correctly but I wasn’t expecting a third. LOL.

Shadow - non-items

Transportation items are the best aren’t they?

Oh well, we did head to Naxx afterwards and completed the set by getting the drop from Maexxna.

Giant Bone Spider

I’ll be seeing you soon Mr. Bigglesworth.

On another note, I’m about three days away from making bigger bags. Woot! But for all the players out there who can relate to my lack of space problems, pls help me prove to Coolidge that it’s a widespread problem and not just mine… :P

Three Times Lucky

Ok, maybe I should do a wishlist more often. When I defeated the third Spirit Tamer today, I found the Pandaren Air Spirit in my reward bag. Then when I logged onto my mage to create my Imperial Silk, the Imperial Moth was inside the cocoon. I couldn’t believe it. Two pets I’ve been trying to get!

Pandaren Air Spirit

Imperial Moth

Some time later, after our short round of Dominance Offensive dailies, Cool and I headed into AQ40 to see if we could get some transmog items and the two remaining pets that I needed. First boss down and another pet drops. EEE! OMG! Three pets in one day!

Mini Mindslayer

So with some extra time for one more thing, we headed down to OS for the Black Drake mount.

Black Drake

What an unbelievable day!

Solo Drama

Over the past week I’ve spent quite a bit of time soloing the four classic raids introduced in the latest patch for pet farming. On Wednesday, I went in on my priest to see how many I could add to my collection. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get any from the six I killed so I ended up caving in the next day and buying the Ashtone Core from the AH as I didn’t think I would be seeing one any time soon.

I had killed the two in AQ40 pretty easily but when it came to Viscidus, I had problems shattering him in time. After several attempts I gave up and left. Then in BWL, I gave one attempt to Razorgore but left after that attempt when I became overrun with adds between MC’ing. In Naxx, after killing Maexxna, I made the error of not clearing the room before trying Patchwerk so it didn’t end well. A few days later, I went into AQ with my hunter to see if I could do Viscidus but without any frost damage to melee, I didn’t get any further than my priest. The twins also gave me issues with my sub-par gear. It’s seemed so easy on my priest a few days before.

Blood moon

Tonight I headed back into AQ on my mage (after the hotfixes) thinking it would be easier at least for Viscidus but forgot about having a fast dagger, etc in my bag for the freezing bit. After realising my mistake, I reset the boss and had a good look in my bag and Guild bank – there was nothing. Then a spark of hope appeared when I thought about a possible vendor option. Never underestimate the power of your Traveler’s Tundra Mammoth. I bought the simple dagger from one of the vendors and tried again. Unfortunately, even with Time Warp, I only managed to get 18 hits before he unfroze.

As the time inched closer to server shutdown, I hopped back onto my hunter to try the Viscidus fight again; but not before I had a couple of fast weapons handy. So I enchanted my two vendor bought daggers with Elemental Force before I tried again. Woot! I was able to kill him finally! But best of all he dropped the pet! Hurray for my first pet drop from AQ :D

Viscidus solo

I really need to get some better gear on my hunter and mage to make it more painless next week.

In other good news, I managed to get a rare crow from the Faire in the few minutes before shutdown :D
