Elgar Getting Love

Elgar has been getting a lot of love as MoP closes in.  As my favorite toon, he usually gets lots done after each patch and then get shelved once he’s “good enough” so that I can work on leveling alts and professions.

After catching Mr. Pinchy last week, I reviewed some of his achievements and identified a few things I wanted to get done.  So here’s some of what I achieved in the last week on Elgar:

Exalted with Consortium
Coin Master
Accomplished Angler
Outland Dungeonmaster Hero
35 Exalted Reputations

The goal before MoP is to get 150 pets.  This will be a challenge, but I think I’m either at 145 or 146 now.  I don’t think I’ll get enough Darkmoon Faire tickets this week to get another pet, though I might buy some of the artifacts if I think it will help me.  There were some questlines that reward pets (like Withers) that I hadn’t completed so that is good.  I think I can do it before MoP, but since I’m concerned that the 150 pet achieve reward will be removed, I’m trying to get it taken care of as soon as possible.

I also realized how there were many reputations that I had as Revered but never finished.  Hitting 40 Exalted reputations might not be impossible either.  I’ll hit Darkmoon Faire this week so that will give me 37–and I’m not exalted with Baradin’s Wardens or Wildhammer yet…there’s really no excuse for those yet.  Whoops!  If I get lots of Call to Arms: Healer the next couple weeks, I should hit exalted with Wildhammer.

Though I had planned on leveling Floy (Death Knight) to 85 and getting the warrior, Mouret to level 80, I don’t think it’s going to happen if I push on Elgar.  We’ll see…leveling through dungeons in the 70s goes quickly anyways.

It’s getting down to the wire, and there’s too much to do, and as always, not enough time!  I hope you are all achieving all that you want to before MoP hits!



After literally years of trying…it finally happened.  I just about died.  Literally.

I Don’t Really Hate Druids and Paladins (much)!

Ha ha, so after Repgrinds comment, I looked at all my posts with this tag.  Man, sometimes I’m lame.  Anyways, I read one on March 14, 2011… in there it said:

“Just three more things until the Salty title…Dalaran Coins, The One That Got Away, and that little f’er, Mr. Pinchy.”

Over one year later, Elgar still has those three achievements to get “Salty”.


One Step Closer

Last night we headed off to Firelands to finish off the last of the collect 250 parts quest for our guild Mage Falahla who was pursuing the questline for the legendary weapon.  The bosses were dropping just 3 parts each and so we were a little nervous we wouldn’t make it.  However, she ended the raid having collected all the parts required.  All we have left now is killing Rag and collecting his heart. 

We’ve extended the raid lock-out and hopefully next week we’ll down him and the guild will have its legendary and their mini-pets.  We might have it done this weekend…we’ll see.  I’m confident we can find a group from the guild to complete this challenge.  He has been downed by the guild before, so it’s just a matter of getting those people familiar with the fight to complete it and refresh their memories. 

After the raid, someone focusing on the guild classy contest was looking for people around level 83 to run normal dungeons for guild reputation.  Amazingly we had a full group!  A few level 85s that wanted to try new specs or just weren’t geared enough yet joined and I offered to tank on that prot paladin I had been leveling up…I probably wouldn’t have offered, but we were going to have a level 85 priest learning to heal so I figured better now.  We got Vortex Pinnacle, which I was nervous about because I was hoping for Throne of Tides or BRC.  My health pool is pretty low considering I’m only wearing the “tank” quest gear.  But we managed to complete it without anyone dying, which I think is a success! 

I felt fairly confident tanking, however I still need to learn to round up the caster adds a little better.  They are sometimes REALLY spread out in that instance.  I also should use tank cooldowns a little more than I did.  But it’s been a REALLY long time since I tanked so I think it wasn’t too bad.  If nothing else, it made me confident that I probably can at least tank normals here and there to get some better gear and some Justice Points.

5k Classy Challenge

As of yesterday evening, Crits and Giggles announced the 5k Classy Challenge.  We have 4 remaining class/race combos to get the classy achievement.  You need to be level 85 and honored with the guild to complete the requirement.  Anyone that finishes any of the class race combos we still have left will be rewarded 5k in gold.  There are no rules like restricting race changes or anything, if you think the real money is worth the character change, I’ll still pay out.  

I thought I’d save myself 5k by getting my worgen priest to 85 first, but someone already race changed in at level 83…eek!  But they are still neutral with the guild, so maybe there’s a chance.  😉  Either way, Bank of Elgar is going to be out some cash as there were some rerolls and talk of changing focus.  5k is free epic flight!

Update on Alts

I apologize for the length of time between posts; I haven’t even had much time to read the usual ones I read either.  Busy busy!

With Mists of Panderia or however you spell it, coming this year yet, I decided that it was really time to focus on accomplishing a few things before then.  Prior to Cataclysm the goal was to get 8 characters to level 80.  I only got 7 done before it hit, as the patch for the new zones left me too preoccupied with those to focus on another level 80.  So far in Cataclysm, I’ve got 6 level 85s and two between 80 and 85.  While I could push these toons, there is actually one thing that I’m really interested in getting done.  And that is the guild Classy achievements.  The reasons are two-fold.  One, it’s nice to have these done and two, when MoP hits they will probably be bumped to level 90.  So I’d like to get the achievements done for the 4 class/race combos we have left.  Dwarf warlock and Worgen pries, DK, and warlock. 

My current pet project is the Worgen priest.  Up to level 64 now, I’ve decided that I should make the push on him should I have to also make a push on another one of these combos.  I am however going to offer a reward to anyone that finishes one of the class/race combos.  It seems that might encourage people to power level before MoP.

I did play my paladin a little bit to change it up, going from level 80 to now…82?  Maybe 83?  I can’t remember…but starting withMt.Hyjalit’s been pretty okay, my goal there is to work on his engineering skill so that I can make those pets for my other characters.  So I’m hopping back and forth between him and Linus to keep leveling.  I’ve been avoiding dungeons for now and just working on collecting gear.  I have been leveling him as Protection.  Though I’m sure ret is probably quicker, Protection feels good and gives me confidence to take on many mobs at the same time and I feel my survivability is great!  And I’ll be honest, as my first plate wearer though the starting Cata zones, I really like the green quest armor look.  It’s the black and red, I dunno, there’s some nice detail on it and I think I’m gonna save the set and use it for transmog if I can find a good shield.  

A little time spent on the Worgen warrior as well playing with my NE Hunter friend to gain two levels.  We burned through some outland quests pretty quick focusing on the kill X number of mobs.  It is slick between the two of us. 

So that’s my little update.  I have some screenshots that I’ll post soon, though Bocat already posted the one of me in the tree from her angle, I’ll show you mine soon.

Somebody Likes You in Their Tunnel

Congratulations to my Worgen Priest for getting Timbermaw as his first exalted reputation.  They have some fun trinkets/items!
