When the replica sets came out for our old PVP titles, I was excited about mogging my beloved Rank 10 outfit. It’s been a while since I did that but even though I’m still levelling in Pandaria, I decided to get my old set out again to match my old Lieutenant Commander title.
Then in Cata, I was envious when I found out the Alliance would have such an awesome looking Guild perk at 25; so I did the next best thing and tamed Sambas on my hunter. Last year, I was able to purchase the Reins of the Golden King from the Guild I was in at the time but how nice does it look with my PVP set?
However, when I was going through my mount journal yesterday, I noticed something I had not expected. A while ago, Tome had written about her Operation: Shieldwall
Grand Gryphon which looked so gorgeous, I was tempted to level my priest up just to do the same thing. But I thought I would have to level up my Shieldwall rep just to get that mount and the Grand Armored Gryphon as well. But guess what was waiting for me to get out and ride…
That’s right baby, no grinding necessary since I’m already exalted with the Horde equivalent! Woot!
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.
Guild Perk 24
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.
Guild Perk 25
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?
