As I slowly collect the last ten items for my Bigger Bag achievement, I’ve started working on something quite different. The Censer of Eternal Agony was sitting in my bag for months. I bought it solely for purchasing the Vengeful Porcupette but I wasn’t too keen on farming 100x Bloody Coins so there it sat, taking up one precious bag spot.
One night, I was looking though my achievements when I came across the Emissary of Ordos for an easy 10pts. All I had to do was use the censer. Geez, if only I knew that earlier. So I parked myself in one of our camp tents not really knowing what to expect. Once I had the achievement, I tried clicking off the buff which didn’t work. Maybe I could use our flight master to knock off the buff… nope. He was now neutral and would have attacked if I had clicked him. Turns out I had to kill myself so I aggroed the nearest crab.
The next achievement required 10x Bloody Coins so I asked Coolidge for help. He agreed to being killed once per day over the next ten days.
Here’s the series of achievements for anyone wondering. I doubt I’ll be getting any further but I guess you never know.
| Emissary of Ordos

According to GuildOx only 0.062% have the Fire-Watcher achievement, a slight improvement to Going to Need a Bigger Bag at 0.045% but you know what’s really annoying? Spending months on the Isle only to find the person you’re grouped with gets the item – TWICE while you’re still waiting for one! Seriously, times like this I wish you could trade it when the kill counts for both of you.
Come on RNG!
A few days ago, I was killing Primal Stalkers on the Timeless Isle when a Pristine Stalker Hide finally dropped. Talk about exciting, especially when it’s been almost three weeks since the last rare drop. Then today I was killing some of the harder yaungol with Cool when a Blizzard Stone popped up on group loot from one of the Chanters. That makes two weather stones so far.
I just love watching this list shrink. If only it happened more often though.
Another month has passed and I can honestly say that I’ve spent far too much time collecting those items on the Timeless Isle. I guess you could say I’m a glutton of punishment so I’ll probably keep going until it’s done, whenever that is. Hopefully before the next expansion hits. If only I were joking.
After five weeks, I’ve only been able to knock off two more items from the list. The grub from Gu’chi (which I collected on an alt so didn’t count) and Captain Zvezdan’s Lost Leg, a drop from Rattleskew.
Now since I don’t need to farm Emperor Shaohao rep any more, it’s one less detour I need to worry about.
Here’s what remains.
and one last battle pet – the Spineclaw Crab which drops from the Monstrous Spineclaw. =/
I may end up like these guys in Conan’s Crypt…
On a positive note, I have noticed something new since my Spelurk video. Mushroom stools and Fishing chairs also work!
After two months I still find myself running around the Timeless Isle a lot. Sadly, there have only been three new additions to my list of collectables so I’m hoping to see another one very soon.
Here’s where I stand right now.
New battle pets:
At least my pet drops are almost complete although I’ve only seen the crab three times.
By the way, I managed to complete the first section of SoS on my hunter last night, scoring a pair of shoulders and crossbow, isn’t my new weapon cute?
Well, here’s to the remaining fifteen items. How is your collection going?
When I logged on this afternoon, Cool asked if I had any wrapping paper. I told him I didn’t but knew where you could buy some so he asked me to pick some up before I headed out to meet him.
“You’re not going to get me to buy my own wrapping paper, give it to you, just so you can give it back to me as a present are you?” His response “I have to get you to work for it.”
I suspected I knew what it was and was right! I wasn’t having any luck with the Gulp Droplet since Bufo dies so damn fast making this a great gift.
A few days earlier I looted the Blackflame Daggers from one of the Champions of the Black Flame. It’s a nice item which replaces whatever you’re using with these two daggers.
My latest toy is Falling Flame, the notable drop from Cinderfall. I heard people talking about how fun this item was so I was looking forward to seeing it for myself. As soon as I finished my daily, I headed to the edge of Ordon Sanctuary to try it. I wasn’t sure what to expect…
Next time I’ll send a postcard.
