After my trip into Ulduar this week and picking up the gloves from my Sanctification Regalia set, I decided to go through my bank and void storage just to see how close I was to completing any of the Ulduar sets. Turns out I’m only missing the shoulders from my yellow set on 25 while I’ve actually completed the recoloured version of my mauve coloured Sanctification Garb. This made me look at how many sets I’d like to work on including the Kirin Tor recoloured version especially when the shoulders remind me slightly of the shaman shoulders from SoO.
In other news, I’ve been pretty busy over the last few days, levelling up my engineering while my pali provided most of the ore I needed. Yesterday I even made some notes (in case I ever decide to level a fourth engineer) and told myself I would only use my easy 5pts from the Darkmoon Faire when I was stuck on a certain material.
Working on new profession has given me a pretty well needed reprieve from all my time on a certain Isle. Unfortunately, there’s nothing new to report on that front but in the meantime, there are still some toys I’d love to finally make for my priest.
I also thought these mecha-spiders from Ulduar would make a cool engineering mount. Well, 20pts to go and I’ll be ready to make my goggles and other toys.
When Cool decided to collect his Tier 8 set from ULD10, I was happy to help although killing the bosses on normal wasn’t much of a challenge so by the time we reached Kologarn, I suggested we try some achievements.
Getting Cold in Here was the only one I didn’t have for Hodir. I normally jump up and down for this one on 25 (or run around) but it was easier than I thought and I didn’t have to dispel once.
Cool suggested we try Lumberjacked first since you don’t need to be in combat with Freya. We just cleared the room before Cool kited two of the Elders to a central spot while I body pulled the third.
Deforestation requires Freya to summon two sets of adds so it was just a matter of time before we had the six we needed.
Thorim was the only fight we did on heroic, so Who Needs Bloodlust? proved quite difficult. I managed to MC a Warbringer but I kept getting hit or interrupted before I could buff myself. Shadowdodger is another one we’ll have to try again.
Alone in the Darkness was easy (even with no keepers) meaning we were able to collect the three easier ones automatically – although I’m not entirely sure which ones we had before today.
- One Light in the Darkness (10 player)
- Two Lights in the Darkness (10 player) and
- Three Lights in the Darkness (10 player).
I don’t normally step inside Yogg’s mind but it appears I’ve done it once before (at least on 10) so I’ll be able to complete In His House He Waits Dreaming very soon. Sadly, Cool only managed to collect one of the pali pieces he needed but there’s always next week. I did manage to get my shoulders though.
After weeks of farming the Throne of Thunder raid, my off-hand finally dropped from the Iron Qon. I had been using a 516 staff that came from my first heroic scenario bag but I decided to use that for my shadow weapon instead. The off-hand I had at the time left a lot to be desired so going from a 476 to a 502 item was a welcome change. I also managed to get Torall, Rod of the Shattered Throne last week so it made a nice set.
Then after my experience with the Celestial Blessings scenario a week ago, I decided to go into the raid as Disc and was pleased to see myself getting back into the swing of things. For a while I was switching my focus between haste, mastery and crit because I couldn’t quite find what was right for me. As I said before, I’ve been playing a lot more shadow these days but after today, I’m feeling a bit better about the state of things.
Straight after the raid, we headed over to Ulduar with one fragment drop from FL. Cat Lady also dropped the mace I’ve been eyeing so it turned out to be a pretty special day.
Looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings.
