As we draw to the end of week 1 of Mists of Pandaria expansion, I spend many many hours leveling my paladin towards level 89, so I can queue up for the Brewfest holidy special encounter.  I left Valley of Four Winds feeling not quit as quest complete as I had in Jade Forest.  But I really don't have time for scenery.  Time to get a-going on my leveling.

Day 781 - Mists of Pandaria Day 5

And this morning, I woke up, having finished most of Jade Forest quest on my Death Knight, I decided to do the same thing as the Paladin, and run dungeon until I hit 87.  At least I didn't ran into the problem of the terrible twins at the Jade Serpent.

Day 780 - Mists of Pandaria Day 4

And my paladin finishes Jade Forest, or enough to earn the achievement.  After running through all of the quests, I was about a couple of bars away from getting to level 87, so I just queue up and run random Pandarian dungeon until I get there.  It's a bit painful walking someone through mechanics of the fight, as people are just not reading.

Day 779 - Mists of Pandaria Day 3

The package came in at 4PM yesterday.  I type in the code in the account, and now, I'm in the game.  After the fiasco of the last expansion, I decided to actually level two of my characters at the same time.  My main character is an engineer and jewel crafter.  Both profession requires ores and bars from mining.  After seeing 45g for a single Pandarian low level metal bar, it's easier for me to justify taking the Death Knight at the same time.

Day 778 - Mists of Pandaria Day 2

Or would've been day 2 if I actually got the game I ordered.  None the less, I went ahead and did all of the daily quest over at Tol Barad, so when I get home today, I can turn those in for experience point.  Just because I'm clearly bored out of my mind, I started the pet combat leveling.  It's actually somewhat interesting.  I'm probably going to have to rethink about my management of my menagerie stable.  My current lineup are: Spirit of Competition (yes, all the way back from 2008), Magical Crawdad, Curious Wolvar Pup.  I got all 3 up to level 7, and I'm up to battling with Darkwood tamers.

Day 777 - Mists of Pandaria Day 1

Day one of the new expansion.  I can't access the new content yet.  My collector's edition box set is currently out on delivery.  Hopefully by the time I get home, it'll be waiting for me.  Well, that's not happening, package now will show up sometimes tomorrow.  Guess I'll be queueing up all of the daily quests today, as my character cannot advance until I get my package and the license key.  Amazon really screwed this one up.

Took this picture of a cute dog outside of Starbuck when I had my lunch yesterday.  The owner of Lulu ask us to look after her while he went inside to get his coffee.  I must say this is the best dog picture I've ever taken with this phone (which indicates my sad skill at taking picture).

Day 776 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.5 Day 14

Final day of Cataclysm and after many many fruitless grind, my rogue finally got Marksman's Blade.   Unfortunately, I grind up until the game stop me from queuing up for the scenario, and I only got 1.  Well, one is better than nothing.  At least I'll have something as base for transmogrification with.

Day 773 - Space Shuttle Endeavour Fly-By

Breaking the form for the past couple of weeks.  Today the Space Shuttle Endeavour is coming home.  It was build here in Los Angeles, and it's coming back home.  The 747 carrying the Shuttle did a couple of loops of Los Angeles Basin and San Fernando Valley (where I'm at), and I took a couple of pictures:

Sorry for the quality of the picture.  It was a short notice, and I have to zoom to the max to even get it on the frame.

Day 772 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.5 Day 10

5 days away from Mists of Pandaria launch.  I didn't opt for the digital Collector's Edition, as I actually want to other stuff.  So I will not be doing the launch content at midnight.  Albeit, when I get home from work, a package from Amazon should be waiting for me.  I've learn my lesson and I'll be pre-ordering instead of chancing it with local store.

Here's the pictures of the 8 toons I have.

Day 769 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.5 Day 7

The Fall of Theramore scenario went live one day ahead of schedule.  Getting into the scenario isn't hard, provided that you get a group and queue up.  Queuing up without a group will take forever, so spamming in the trade/LFG channel works quit well.  You'd be surprise at the speed in which I can get a 3 person group going.  As it stand right now, the scenario isn't tuned for level 85 players, so for geared character, it's a breeze.  Having healer and tank definitely helps (the first two times I went through as a tank, and that works well enough).  The only piece of loot I got was a healer staff, ironically for my warlock who already have a LFR staff from Madness of Deathwing.  My shadow priest really could use that staff, but alas, no such luck.

Paladin and Rogue day today. The Paladin did get a DPS trinket from the daily heroic run, but nothing else worth mentioning. The rogue didn't get anything other than being #1 on the damage meter. 114/76/48 106 mg/DL 164.8lb

Day 765 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.5 Day 3

Another fruitless night of farming for one hand strength base weapon. I must've ran various end game instance about 6 times. Nothing worth mention except the healing is even worse than before. Before I went to sleep, I ran my mage through both LFR run. No set piece, but I did get two different pieces. Upgrade is upgrade. 124/85/54 106mg/DL 167lb

I didn't have much of a chance doing raids yesterday. However, I did manage to run an instance on my hunter. I realized that I should expand my Death Knight's farming run to also include End Time as well, as that instance also have a strength based one handed weapon that she can use. 125/82/57 104mg/DL 168.4lb

Day 763 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.5 Day 1

2 weeks after patch 5.0.4, we got a small patch 5.0.5. This is mainly to fix tool tips values as well as an almost across the board nerf on many classes's abilities. We'll see how severe the nerfs are when the servers comes back online. 119/83/66 102 mg/DL 168.4lb

Day 762 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.4 Day 15

The broken record continues. Since I've exhausted all of the LFR raids, I went ahead and run a couple of instances on my rogue and hunter, mainly to fine tune how to play those classes. I also ran Hour of Twilight 3 times. No, the sword I've been farming for didn't drop. I did ran across some genuinely atrocious healers. I guess beggars can't be choosers now. 113/74/54 103 mg/DL 168.2lb

One thing of being on call is that I'm more or less chained to my house or computer.  So no strolling on the weekend for me.  And the joy of being awake at odd hours of the night.  One more day.

I managed to ran my paladin through both LFR instance.  Only got a DPS ring.  Better than nothing.  Out of sheer boredom, I went ahead and acquired this mount, Obsidian Nightwing, which looks like this in Stormwind:

It's a recruit a friend mount, and serves as a vehicle mount to one party member.  I think it looks fine.

Day 759 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.4 Day 12

Another day, another LFR.  Today is the Death Knight's turn in the LFR.  Since I haven't had the pleasure of running any of the Demon Soul raid as tank before, I decided to run as DPS.  As usual, I'm running very very  low on the damage dealt list.  No loot.  But that's to be expected.  Tomorrow, I'll run my paladin through dps as well.

Day 758 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.4 Day 11

Today is yet another fix the UI day.  I finally decided to break out the combat log window to be visible all the time.  I also arrange it so that Grid frames are finally align correctly.  Now I also have to fix autobar on some of the classes.

I ran LFR with my shadow priest and druid.  Some of the raids are utterly terrible.  My severely under geared balance druid managed to came in second in damage in the final boss fight.  This is not good.  Loot wise, mostly bag, except my druid finally also got Ti'tahk, the Steps of Time.  My second character to get this loot.  I also decided to switch out Glyph of Star.  While it may look pretty, I just cannot tell at a glance whether I'm in the correct form to do damage or not.

Day 756 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.4 Day 9

I finished off most of the Darkmoon Fair mount and pet collection this morning.  Unfortunately for me, the last pet, Darkmoon Rabbit appears to be a level 93 raid boss that'll simply one shot any individual, and requires an old fashion 40 man raid.  At least I can tempered my thought about doing that.

I ran both half of the Demon Soul LFR yesterday on Malorina.   For a change, the loot is with me as I managed to pick up 3 piece of the Tier 14 rogue gear.  This makes the tier 14 bonus available.  The mod Reforgenator doesn't have the new hit and expertise value yet, so I have to make manual guesses on how I should reforge.  My rogue now hits for decent amount.

I woke up 90 minutes ahead of schedule this morning, compliment of being on-call.  And for a change, this was an actual problem that I have to spend hours on.  I'll take a small nap this afternoon to catch up, as I need to work tonight.

Oh, on my numerical reporting, I finally got around and switch the weight and glucose reading around in my spreadsheet.  It only makes sense.  I always measure blood pressure first, and then glucose, and then weight.  It only makes sense to report in that order.

Day 755 - Warcraft Patch 5.0.4 Day 8

With the new share all companion pets and mount, I've decided to split up mount gathering a bit and getting all of my various characters to do different pets and mount.  For example, I was able to get Darkmoon Dancing Bear on my main character this morning, after doing two daily quests at the cost of 180 Darkmoon ticket.  My other characters are getting the companion pets, and I'm about 3/4 of the way through.  It doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get all of the pets this month, but next month should be different.

Today is the AutoBar fix day.  The mod creator actually recommend that the old configuration file be remove and start anew.  That's what I did, and the result looks fine.  Finally getting near what I wanted.  Now I just need to fix Grid.

I also ran both raid finder instance on the mage.  Didn't get anything, but I did ran enough instances to buy 2 replace gear.  Finally learn how to play fire mage.  Frost mage will take a bit of time.

For this long weekend, I sort of promise myself to do as little as possible.  Other than trying to learn how to play various of my characters.  Thus far, I think I got a handle on the mechanics on assassination rogue, balance druid, blood death knight and affliction warlock.  I also realize that resetting talent points does not take the wholesale class trainer route, which can get expensive, but it's treated like glyph, on a per talent basis.  Good thing to know.
