Day 1239 - Mists of Pandarian Day 460

New raid week.  With 2 days left on the holiday event, my first priority is to get the world boss for the pet.  And the next thing to do is to go back to Pandarian capital for the weekly allotment of the bonus coin trade in.  With some reminder from some Warcraft blogger, I've also started to send my toons to Timeless Isle for the almost free 45g per day for answering question.  That's 405 gold for just showing up.  Not insignificant amount when I'm going broke making JC mount.

I send my Death Knight through LFR4, and got her a new tanking leg.  Unfortunately, LFR being what it is, I never managed to get Garrosh down in the final boss.

Day 1238 - Mists of Pandarian Day 459

Last day of the raid week.  I still run around getting the daily holiday world boss to try getting the new pet.  This is what I think is perhaps the only advantage of having so many alts.  I get 9 shot per day on this boss.  I finished up the third jewelcrafter mount.  4 down and 1 to go.  Too bad the one I just made is the cheap one.  The next one will be a bit more expensive.

Took my main through second Flex instance.  It actually went rather smoothly, me getting a new tank per each new encounter notwithstanding.  And then I tried Flex 3, which starts at Spoils of Pandaria.  Now, most tank really only want Flex 3 for the first boss for the trinket.  We got close to finishing it, but it fall apart at the end.  After that, we never got another attempt in.  I actually got the LFR version of the tier helm later when I ran the lfr myself.  Only 12 more secrets to go.

Day 1236 - Mists of Pandarian Day 457

Spend the morning at the car dealership getting maintenance done.  Good thing that the dealership actually upgraded their free wi-fi, and it's considerably more reliable than my previous experience.  I managed to finish the holiday daily quest on all 9 toons, got some points towards pushing my main to weekly valor point cap and done some fishing quest on my monk.  Not too bad of a way to spend my time in a captive environment.

Day 1235 - Mists of Pandarian Day 456

I bought a whole bunch of Robert R. McCammon ebook early this week.  I never got too far into Speaks the Nightbird due to its sheer size and holding the book.  I'm giving it another shot this time around using Kindle edition.  Interesting departure from his previous novels.

I guess I'll continue to grind out the epic quest item on my main, and get the rest of my toon pass the pvp hurdle.

Day 1234 - Mists of Pandarian Day 455

Car trouble today.  My auxiliary battery finally gave out today, requiring jump by AAA.  I had to scrapped my plan to get it replace by the dealer, since the battery won't hold charge anymore.

I managed to farm 2 more quest item for my main.  Doing it have been painful.  It's absurd when I'm #4 on the damage meter, and I'm the tank.

Day 1233 - Mists of Pandarian Day 454

Christmas day 2013.  I wait around for the yearly presents quest to show up.  It really doesn't help that the usual bunch of jerks mount up in their giant mount making it difficult for anyone to get the quests done.  Since I have a dinner tonight to attend to, I opted not to do too much.  I did get my warlock's Temple PVP quest done.  Now, 7 more toons need that done.

Day 1232 - Mists of Pandarian Day 453

New raid week.  After running all of my toons through daily world boss for Winter Veil event, I settled down to do all of my toons that still need Weekly Celestials.  I managed to snag a regular Tier 16 leg for my monk's tanking set.  I was a bit surprised that I was able to swap out the existing leg for a tier 16 LFR token, which I immediately use it for my dps offset leg.  Hey, it beats my current option, which is using an Tier 15 tanking leg.  Surprisingly enough, I'm one piece away from finishing up my Tier 16 dps set for my monk...

Day 1231 - Mists of Pandarian Day 452

After finished up the second chapter of the epic quest, I had to head back to doing the first 2 wings of Siege raid repeatly to get 20 Secret of the Empire.  Fortunately as a tank, my queue time is low, and I managed to snag 3 by going through all of LFR yesterday.  I also managed to get my 4 piece bonus, which does take a bit of practice to use.  Using it properly is quit powerful.  I might have to change my talent to fully take advantage of it.

After 5k worth of repair bill, I finally killed Flex version of Thok the Bloodthirsty.  Nothing dropped, but at least I got that off my back.  For a good measure, I also managed to win the Temple of Kotmogu battleground, finished off my main's Chapter 2 quest line.  Unfortunately, the resulting weapon mod does not work on my current weapon.  Well, a nice piece of reminder.

I ran my hunter through Sunwell Plateau again in hope of getting the legendary bow, didn't get it, but I did get Golden Bow of Quel'Thalas, something that I can actually transmorg my current range weapon with.  I can always change it back if I got bored with the look.

More quality time spend on Underhold again.  While I was not able to finished him off, I did rack up quit a bit of repair bill.  I now have quit a bit of experience doing Spoils of Pandaria, having done that 3 times, I know how to do it correctly.  While trying not to bang my head against the keyboard, I actually managed to finished Silvershard Mine battleground.  One small step towards finishing the epic quest.

Day 1228 - Mists of Pandarian Day 449

Ever since the start of the Winter Veil holiday event, I've been flying my 9 toons up to Western Plagueland, and then moving them to do the world boss event one by one.  The constant ganking have eased up a bit so I was able to complete that without much difficulty.  I've been getting mostly junks.  Did get 1 Minature Winter Veil Tree dagger on my rogue.  I can probably sell it for transmogrification purpose.  I got a couple of lump of coal and one Rotten Helper Box.  This is the primary reason for me to do these event.

Spend some more quality time on Underhold Flex today.  While I was not able to get pass Thok the Bloodthirsty, I was able to pick up an upgrade tanking shield from Spoils of Pandaria.  The repair bill is really mounting up.

Day 1227 - Mists of Pandarian Day 448

Having hitched a ride with a guild run Flex Raid spoiled me quit a bit.  While I blew through the first two wings of Flex with minimum downtime, the third wing is giving me fits.  The first boss is the boss that most tanks want due to the very good tanking trinket that he drops.  That being said, I did it, replacing the LFR version.  I spend some quality time with the Flex Underhold tonight, and it's amazing how many people still treat it like LFR.  Hey, something is better than nothing.

Day 1226 - Mists of Pandarian Day 447

So I decided to join the cross realm flex raid by listing my main (Protection Paladin) in the browser list. I got pick almost immediately. I died a couple of times, got a bunch of stuff I actually didn't need. Finish off the first two flex wings. Flex is a bit harder, but with some coordination, it was the most fun I had in months. 122/77/76 87 mg/DL 185.4lb

Yesterday I also took my mage off to the starting zone for Dwarves and Gnomes to farm for 50 low level eggs from the appropriate mobs. This allows me to finish the annual Winters Veil quest for all of my toons, my bank alt included. It was relatively painless, and I actually didn't see anyone else farming those mobs. 118/79/84 90 mg/Dl 185.4lb

Day 1224 - Mists of Pandarian Day 445

Last day of the raid week. Today is also the first day of the 2 week Winters Veil event with a new pet possible from the daily world boss. Unfortunately for me, the Horde faction on my realm is rather determined that no one from Alliance does the world boss and ganking anyone around. It took me forever to cycle all nine of my 90s through the dailies. No new pet yet. 111/75/63 91 mg/DL

Day 1216 - Mists of Pandarian Day 437

I paid my vehicle registration fee yesterday, online.  I didn't like spending for postage, and I personally preferred to settle all of my bills as soon as I can.  So it's e-check for me.  California DMV website seem to be designed by the folks that have absolutely no idea how normal user would use the site.  For putting in long digits and numbers (routing number and account information) you'd figure most people would've just copy and paste that information in.  Nope, that feature is deliberately turn off.  I have no idea why, but hey, I can type.  It's then I found the second stupid thing, all of the number are blocked off, as if I'm typing in a password.  Now I cannot confirm what I type in.  Good thing for me that I actually did managed to put in the numbers in correctly and I save a bit of money by registering early.  But seriously, this is stupid.

So tomorrow we get the mysterious patch 5.4.2, which includes a mount which no one have any idea on how to acquire it yet.  Lets hope it's doable for me.

I spent today getting quite a few of my toons through Karazhan.  Still no flaming horse, but I did get a couple of pets that sells pretty quickly.  My mage got the same trinket off Garrosh, but my druid did get the nice damage over time trinket off from the Dark Shaman.  The random number generator is weird sometimes.

My rogue got another dagger off from last boss from Underhold.  I already exhausted the 2 LFR where I have a chance of getting loot, as well as the weekly Celestial world boss.  Next week.
