Queuing for Achievements

10

I’ve been itching to work on a number of these dungeon and scenario achievements so I’ve been queuing up for three specific ones over the last couple of days. To start, I asked Cool to help me with a particular dungeon one before he suggested Seeds of Doubt a few minutes afterwards.

The next day, I noticed you could do several of the achievements on normal so I queued hoping to get what I needed from each one.

Pandaren

It was just a matter of time before the Pandaren defence appeared. I was happy to see it after the third try.

Monkey-See

That Protected Unga Keg was one of the most annoying achievements in the whole series since it’s so hard to come by so imagine my surprise when I saw it after the first try this time round.

Empowered-Spiritualist

I made my way into the low level dungeon but found it still took a few tries since the boss died prematurely (silly cloak). In the end, I just body pulled the boss and just waited until three of the zombies spawned.

Binan Village All-Star

Even though this was the first I queued up for (picking two scenarios to do at a time), it actually took the longest to complete. I was excited to see the Vale Marksman on my first attempt – one of the last two I needed for the place. Little did I know I would be running it countless times over the next two days trying to see the burly Briaw Shan NPC. Let’s just say I didn’t leave his side as soon as phase two started.

Feels great to complete so many in such a short time.

By the way, can anyone recommend a reliable server for Rabble Rabble Rabble, one of the Brawler’s Guild achievements? I’d also like to knock the last optional card boss off my bucket list before WoD.

Attention to Achievements

I’ve been wanting to complete a number of these achievements for a such a long time that I decided to have a look at the more doable ones. Attention to Detail was definitely one of them so Cool and I headed out to try it.

Turns out it was super easy so we were going to try School’s Out Forever but it couldn’t be completed with a partial group.

The next day I noticed Bomberman in my log so we flew over to the Gate of the Setting Sun to complete it.

This was another easy one which gave me the achievement before we even killed the boss. Before we left I checked to see if there were any more and noticed Conscriptinator. The most time consuming thing about it was to work our way to the mobs (which didn’t take too long at all).

Ah, it feels great to get another three out of the way. I think I’m in the mood for some Brawlers….

Cleaning Up the Temple

0

From the time we set foot in the Temple of the Jade Serpent today, Cool and I decided to go for the Cleaning Up achievement as it’s one we’ve wanted to do for a while. As a PUG, there’s a bit of a hit or miss depending on the three DPSers – today we had a Mage, Monk and Shaman. It’s a shame we can’t get an accurate time for the entire instance but adding up all the fights on Skada, it seemed like the whole thing took ~14mins. We had just under 3mins left on the Purified Water buff as we started the fight with the Sha of Doubt.

There appears to be a bug with the door behind Mari as it doesn’t always open. Today was no exception as we found ourselves running back through the entrance. It was a non-issue though as we made good time in the courtyard with the adds and Liu Flameheart. The three adds before the Sha were pulled into the back room with the boss so they don’t need to be CC’ed as others have suggested.

Cleaning Up

The fight was over in 1min and 58secs with 36secs left on the buff. It was also earned by everyone in the group so well done all.
