Day 998 - Mists of Pandarian Day 219

New raid week, and for a change, my first toon I'll be fielding will be my paladin tank.  I'll go through some easier content first for a change and see what drops.

Day 997 - Mists of Pandarian Day 218

End of the raid week usually bring the dredges of talents on LFR.  For that reason, I basically sat most of my toons, only doing dailies to bring up my lesser lucky coin to a manageable state.  I did ran my rogue through stage 3 of Throne of Thunder raid.  Nothing useful comes out of it.

Not sure why I'm feeling so tired.  I didn't even have the energy to do my full 30 minutes of exercise before I have to call it quit this morning.

I ran my hunter through the third leg of the LFR hopping to get an upgraded weapon.  There are 3 other hunters there.  Naturally, I didn't get anything useful except for a lot of repair bill.

Day 995 - Mists of Pandarian Day 216

A shorten weekend day for me.  I basically ran errands most of the day, getting home at about 3PM.  I did get to ear oyster noodle for the first time in a while:

Oyster Noodle

Naturally, I didn't eat it all, and to be honest, I over ate as usual.

I was checking with Icy Veins for better spec on my toons when I realized that both my mage and warlock were not using optimized settings.  I ran both toons through Forgotten Depth.  Mage didn't get anything, but my warlock got 2 piece of loot, and I bought the Tier 15 trinket from the vendor.  In all, she's now at iLevel 494.  Not too bad.

Day 994 - Mists of Pandarian Day 215

Even though I'm not on call this week, my game time this weekend will be somewhat more limited.  I have a car maintenance on Saturday, coupled that with the weekly Costco restock shopping.  I also have a scheduled work on Sunday night that should take me the whole evening.  Well, time to get going.

Day 993 - Mists of Pandarian Day 214

Send another couple of characters through LFR with the aim of getting weapons.  The hunter came up empty, but there's another instance with weapon for her.  My monk did managed to get the second one of the iLevel 502 hammer.  For some reason, my character stat sheet is throwing me weird number.  But I'm trying out this pair of hammers in place of my Sha-Touched weapon to see how it works out.

Day 992 - Mists of Pandarian Day 213

After a couple of weeks of no gear drop, one of my toon finally got a decent gear drop.  From the final boss of the Forgotten Depth, she got the healer (spirit) staff that actually compliment her ability quit nicely.

Here's a picture of her, standing in the inn on Isle of Thunder.

Fidie in Isle of Thunder Inn.

I even splurge a bit and got a proper enchant on it.  The first character (hunter)to go through the LFR yesterday didn't get an uprade gear.  So it'll be another week.

Day 991 - Mists of Pandarian Day 212

And they announce the hotfix to lower the price of the LFR coins from 90 to 50 lesser coins.  This will definitely make my life easier, since I'm still using a spreadsheet to schedule characters to go through LFR and dailies.  Well, time for my hunter tonight.

Day 990 - Mists of Pandarian Day 211

At the end of the week, I was able to drag 2 of my toons through LFR and get one other toon through dailies just to get the lesser coins.  My warlock got the same haste/critical wand that my fire mage got. It's nice, but the warlock is already using a haste/mastery sword that's much better suited for her main spec, Affliction.  Well, disenchant fodder.

Today's my tank day again.  As of this writing, my Paladin went through the LFR (Troll section) with nothing to show for.  My monk is next.  Random number generator is a wonderful thing.  You go through dry spell like the one I'm going through every once in a while.

Day 988 - Mists of Pandarian Day 209

I'm still on-call.  This means that I don't have much opportunity to go anywhere.  Thus, I spend my day putting my characters through LFR and dailies.  5 of my characters.  Didn't get much in the way of gears.  Still, that's better than nothing.

Day 987 - Mists of Pandarian Day 208

Making it up for Fidie for being the sacrificial lamb in scouting out Pinnacle of the Storm, she's the one and only character I send through today.    No loot.

This morning, I got 2 different wrong phone number call at me near 5AM.  One of them is from the San Jose area taxi company.  The second one actually comes all the way from Indiana.  Wonder if Google Voice is acting up and routing the calls wrong.

Day 985 - Mists of Pandarian Day 206

Today is Tank's day...  Monk and Paladin's day to try to get loot.  I lined up my papadin to go to the Forgotten Depth to try to get her the tanking shield.  Nope, no loot.  I send my monk through the Troll part of the instance.  Didn't get the staff, but did pick up a weird trinket that randomly summon gnomes to fight with you.

I managed to take my mage through the Troll raid instance.  I was trying to get the staff from the second boss, didn't get it.  But I did get the wand that's actually better suited for my spec.  Unfortunately, I've already dis-enchanted the offhand I had.  So I have to buy a rare fan and let my scribe to make the epic fan.  Still, it's better than what I have with the sha-touched staff.

Day 984 - Mists of Pandarian Day 205

New raid week, and new content.  The last stage of the Throne of Thunder openned up today, and my shadow priest is the sacrificial lamb to test out the water.  As it turns out, when she landed inside the raid instance, the raid have just cleared the second boss, leading to the final encounter.  I gave it 4 tries before I retired Fidie for the evening.  Poor Fidie didn't get anything other than repair bill.

I've decided not to rush everyone through the final instance, instead, getting them to the instance where they're most deficient.  Thus, I queue up my druid to go to the Forgotten Depth.  Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view) I got there right as they've finish the second boss.  Since the loot I needed is from the final boss (I desperately need to replace the chest piece), I was ok with this developement.

And as luck has it, I got the Tier 15 chest piece.  Just one more Tier 15 piece and I'll have the 4 piece bonus.

Day 983 - Mists of Pandarian Day 204

Start of a very long week for me.  Due to past experience of trying to take class from home and its technical difficulty, I've decided to do this from the office.  As always, the class is oriented towards East coast time, so I have to do this starting at 6:30AM.

Thus, I didn't get much of anything done.  Only managed to send my rogue through LFR today.

Took my paladin and monk through LFR this morning.  I'm not sure what's going on, but my paladin's having tremendous amount of problem holding aggro on the mobs.  On my monk, my co-tank was an inexperienced paladin, and I can easily pull threat from him.  Perhaps it's time I consult with the paladin tanking forum again.

Took 3 of my toons through LFR and dailies today, warlock, mage and druid.  Only my warlock got a loot.  And I put on the wrong kind of enchant on it.  That's a 4.5k mistake.  Money I don't have.  At least it's a significant improvement over my Sha-Touched weapon.

Day 980 - Mists of Pandarian Day 201

So much to do, so little time.  I suppose if I wanted, I can run my tanks through all three of the LFR in all 3 stages.  The queue time for them was much easier.  (My shadow priest last night waited 1 whole hour for the queue.  Enough time or me to do the Isle of Thunder dailies, rare spawn kill and the Shado-Pan daily.  Still I really shouldn't play favors.

Day 979 - Mists of Pandarian Day 200

The final stage of Isle of Thunder opens up today.  This means I have to take all 9 of my 90s through the individual scenario.  The scenario is surprisingly easy consider it is the last one on the island.

In between the late night scheduled work, I only managed to take my shadow priest through Hall of Flesh Shaping LFR.  The first group was a dream to work with.  We one shot the first two bosses, and I have to leave for work.  The second group was a bit of let down.  I arrived on the second wipe of the second boss.  And took two more wipe to take that down.  Thankfully it only took two wipes on the last boss for that to clear.

Day 978 - Mists of Pandarian Day 199

Finally got a chance to get two of my characters through LFR.  And is it my imagination or did they really nerf LFR version of Durumu?  On my second toon, we actually that boss.

Here's what I had for lunch today:
Baked Salmon with bok choy on rice and mushroom

Wonderful meal.  Albeit, a bit much on the glaze sauce.

#1 sign that this Durumu attempt is going badly when you get into LFR: 5 stacks of Determination.  3 more wipes later, my mage finally got through that instance.  The rest of the LFR encounter actually went fine.  No gears though.

Well, it's that time again, 8 weeks after the previous donation, Red Cross got my pint of blood again.  Just for the sake of measurement, I weight myself prior and after the donation, eating and drinking nothing in between.  And the pint of blood comes out to be about 1.4lb.  Slightly more than what the folks at the donation center said it would be.  Still, it's 1/5 of my blood so I'll be taking it easy the rest of the weekend.

I took both of my tanks through Throne of Thunders stage 3 (Halls of Flesh Shaping).  And I can said without a doubt that I know the mechanics of Durumu's Disintegration Beam works.  Well, that's one less thing I have to worry about.

The third leg of the Throne of Thunder LFR opens up today.  Boy it is a tremendous step up in terms of complexity and difficulty.  I contemplating bringing my main character Dianora to tank, but though I should at least get familiarize with the place.

The first boss Durumu the Forgotten was by far the toughest encounter I've seen thus far.  I'm positive that where it not for Determination buff we would've never got it done.  The second boss Primordius was much more fun, and I couldn't figure out the mechanics of the third boss.
