After a flurry of world events, Lunar Festival, Love is in the Air, and the Darkmoon Faire, things have returned to normal on the server.
Unfortunately for my characters, I had many real life situations happening at the same time and didn’t get to take full advantage of the holidays. I did manage to complete some of the events though.
Elgar had just two holidays left for his meta-achievement for all the holidays, and those two were Lunar Festival and Love is in the Air. I had none of the Lunar Festival completed, but had a good start on charms and flowering people. I was able to finish it up and finally after years of slowly doing holiday achievements was able to get his Long Strange Trip completed.
I was hoping to get some of the Elders done on my Paladin so that I could get the engineering patterns, for completeness, and also on the Druid because I figured it’d be easy to do the dungeons when you can stealth past nearly everything. Sadly, neither of these things happened.
I did the holiday boss for Love is in the Air a few times but no Love Rocket for me and not enough tokens for a mount. That’s okay. But sadly, on Saturday, the last day of the Love is in the Air, I was checking mail on my toons and noticed that Troutwort was just two achievements from “The Love Fool”. The two achievements were looting a bouquet and pitying the fool. Well he had 0 love tokens and it’s 11:30pm. I suppose that I probably could have pulled it off before the 2am end of holiday, but I was pretty tired and decided just to kick myself and make a mental note to finish it next year.
In other news, my worgen priest also hit level 60 after doing his Wintersaber daily. I figure I’ll do that on him, just 15 more days now. Sousa also got exalted with the guild finally. I’ll need a new project for a bit while I wait for the worgen to finish up Wintersabers. I think I’ll finish up my druid transmog set and then either work on Haydn or Kalinnikov. If MoP is coming out this year, I should make a push to get the toons to 85. Six so far, but I’d like to get a few more or at least some within striking distance to hit is shortly after. I usually avoid power-leveling after a new Xpac, going from 80 to 85 after release should be pretty barren, except for a few crazy power-leveling pandas.
