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||Use the Censer of Eternal Agony obtained from Speaker Gulan on the Timeless Isle.|
|Candlekeeper||Obtain 10 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.|
|Oathguard||Obtain 100 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.|
|Kilnmaster||Obtain 1000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.|
|Fire-Watcher||Obtain 2000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher. Grants the Fire-Watcher title.|
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.
- Elixir of Ancient Knowledge – Drop from Krol the Blade or Archiereus of Flame
- Ash-Covered Horn – Drop from High Priest of Ordos
- Ordon Death Chime – Drop from Flintlord Gairan
- Sunset Stone – Drop from Urdur the Cauterizer
- Ashen Stone – Drop from Watcher Osu
- Warning Sign – Drop from Jakur of Ordon
- Cursed Talisman – Drop from Spelurk
- Glinting Pile of Stone – Drop from Eroded Cliffdwellers and Golganarr
- Glowing Green Ash – Drop from Spirit of Jadefire
- Reins of the Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent – Drop from Huolon
- Spineclaw Crab – Drop from Monstrous Spineclaw
I just love watching this list shrink. If only it happened more often though.
Here’s what remains.
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.
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!
