Day 1328 - Mists of Pandarian Day 549

Now that I'm mostly done with farming lightsaber (only my rogue and monk can really use sword, and the rogue never use swords), I decided to farm for other thing for my warrior.  The shield (Royal Crest of Lordaern) and sword (Red Sword of Courage) comes to mind.  Unlike the lightsaber, they both are located at the end of an heroic dungeon instance.  So I have to try getting it once a day.  Unlike my mount grind, I have to get it on the character I want the transmute.  Well, something to do in between my daily grind.

Continuing my Mage and Warlock's farming for Spellfire Longsword.  Both took 5 attempts to get their sword.

In the meantime, I finished up both Valley of the Four Wind and Krasaang Wilds to get to the mid leveling cinematic.  After that's done, I turn my attention over to Kun-Lai Summit.  That does take a bit of time, even with my current gear and flying mount.  One thing I really can't complain is the amount of money I'm earning from this.

I'm still doing the dailies at Isle of Thunder, though I'm not getting valor point from it.  I'm still slowly getting the reputation for the Black Prince faction.

On a lark, I went and start the Cloud Serpent faction grind.  after 1 day, I'm 3/4 of the way through.  This is far easier than I remember.

Day 1326 - Mists of Pandarian Day 547

I spend 14k today buying Blade of Wizardry for transmuting purpose.  Only after I've bought it and soulbound to my warrior did I realize I could've save that money by farming Slave Pen normal mode for something similar.

Both the warrior and Death Knight managed to get Spellfire Longsword on the first attempt.  So now my Death Knight is dpsing using 2 lightsaber and my warrior is tanking with one.

Unfortunately for me, my Mage struck out for the night.  Not that she's in any hurry.  Both Mage and Warlock are currently not using sword, so they can wait.

Day 1325 - Mists of Pandarian Day 546

Anytime you got something you deliberately set up to farm for is a good day.  I got Vial of Living Corruption tanking trinket off from first boss of LFR3, which is the only boss there I can still have a free roll for loot.  That didn't drop.  But on my bonus roll, the tanking trinket drop.  Now I'm a bit better geared for the rest of my tanking need.  Next tanking trinket will be the one in LFR1.

Day 1323 - Mists of Pandarian Day 544

I did get some upgraded gear from my weekly appointment with Ordos.  I'll have to consult with about which iLevel 559 gear I'm supposed to use with my Shadow Priest.  My monk also got a new head piece that she's likely to use in tanking set.

However, due to getting the weekly token procurement and Oros farming, I didn't even get to finish Justia's daily quests.  Seeing that her progression of the Legendary quest is only limited by the valor point (3.5 weeks), I'm not overtly concern with that.  Needless to say, she also didn't get on any of the LFR.

What I do need to do is also doing the Timeless Isle and the rep farming there.  I need to get her up to honor with the Emperor faction so she has the same ability to blink back to the island when needed.

And to think, I was so busy, I didn't even had time to install Diablo III expansion.

Day 1322 - Mists of Pandarian Day 543

Now that I'm done with power leveling blacksmith and mining on my insta-boost warrior, my schedule with her is now reduced to Operation Shieldwall and Isle of Thunder dailies as well as Timeless Isle dailies.  With the quality of the LFR, I'm not going to wait for the end of the week and suffer the really bad gamers then.  I'll start queueing as tank to cut down on the queue time.

Steak on Salad
Now that I'm back home, I'm going to run my warrior through her usual routine plus queuing up for LFR4 which I still have gears to pick up.  I'll also run my paladin and hunter through the old content for transmorg gears.

Finally got done with Blacksmith power leveling.  Now I can go back to my regularly scheduled program.  What I really want out of Blacksmith is the extra gem socket for the wrist and glove.  With that in place, my toons should be more durable.  I also start running the Timeless Isle dailies, not for any particular reason except that I want my toon to be at least honored with the Emperor faction for a quick teleport trinket to the island.  I found that in order for me to do that, I need to farm the really tough Ordos elites.  2 almost dead from the mob damage later, I have to resort to doing it as protection warrior.  Fortunately for me, I'm geared enough to do that.

Now my daily routine consist of doing the Alliance quest in the south, doing the Isle of Thunder dailies (those are for the Black Prince reputation grind, which is 4 weeks away) and doing the elites on Timeless Isle.  In case I have extra time, I'm going through the FULL expansion quest line to recoup some money.  Finished Jade Forest and currently 1/3 way through Valley of the Four Winds.

Day 1319 - Mists of Pandarian Day 540

Power leveling profession can be rather expensive.  I already ran through the funds I picked up doing dailies and other quests.  I send five thousand gold from my bank alt, and already the new warrior is making a significant dent through that fund.

I spend a good chunk of today waiting for LFR while leveling both mining and blacksmith.  Mining itself is easy, blacksmith is expensive as the amount of ore I got from my own mining isn't anywhere near enough to power level.  That means auction house.  Auction house material for Wraith of the Liche King and Cataclysm material are expensive.

In the midst of power leveling, I did pick up a tier piece for tanking glove.  It isn't good enough of a piece without 4 piece bonus, so I'll keep that one open until later.  I still have most of LFR4 to look forward to, so that will have to wait.

Day 1318 - Mists of Pandarian Day 539

I took my Death Knight back to LFR2 again, this time with more competent raid members.  We wipe twice at the General, but the effort is worth my while, since I did get the glove token.

Next stop is my instant boost warrior and her legendary quest.  I've already did the first token gathering run.  The next stop is to get to honor with the Black Prince faction.  Unfortunately I didn't read up on the most efficient way of gaining rep with the faction, and started the Dreadwaste quest chain instead of heading over to Isle of Thunder.  Lesson learned.  After going through all of the single player scenario on the Isle and doing a single day's worth of dailies on the island, I finish that reputation grind.

By the time I accepted the next quest to get a quest token from Sha of Fear, it was already getting late, so I tabled that for the next day.

Day 1317 - Mists of Pandarian Day 538

I ran my Death Knight through LFR1 and LFR2 to look for gears I still need from there.  I was coupled with a severely undergeared co-tank in LFR2, and the rest of the raid was simply getting on my nerve.  After the third wipe at the Dark Shamans, I bid the raid adieu and went to LFR1.  The tier 16 chest token piece did not drop for me.

Day 1316 - Mists of Pandarian Day 537

With the new Ordo world boss, I now find my raid week reset day to be doing nothing except the Celestials and Ordo.  Ordo takes priority as he drops far better gears.  My DK did managed to pick up a new tanking necklace as well as a iLevel 535 tanking pants.  I guess I'll have to put her back on LFR rotation to get the rest of her gears.  The Shadow Priest got two identical shoulder that's far better than what she's currently wearing.  And the hunter got a new pants.  All of them now needs to be enchanted, gemmed and reforged.

Day 1314 - Mists of Pandarian Day 535

Ran through ALL of the Throne of Thunder and Siege of Ogrimarr LFR as Fury Warrior.  I also managed to get the first sets of Legendary Quest token done.  Now I have to spend some quality time in Dread Waste to raise my reputation with Black Prince faction up.  Good thing I really don't need anything else with my other toons.

My protection warrior tank got quit a bit of upgrade, with both main hand and shield from Siege, 2 piece of Tier 16 set, 3 non tier pieces of armor.  I also managed to get some Tier 13 pieces for my Fury spec, as well as one iLevel 502 sword from Throne of Thunder and 1 iLevel 528 hammer from Siege.  In all, I'm well on my way of graduating out of the Timeless Isle and boost bonus pieces.

On the crafting front, I've managed to get my Black Smith up to 300 and mining up to 293.  Time to do Outland.

The rump through Vault, Heart of Fear, and Terrace of Eternal Spring is actually fairly simple.  I only queue up as tank for Vault, and that went well enough.  For Heart of Fear and Terrace, I queue as dps.  Naturally my dps is on a very very low end.

I also started my crafting grind, which involves time needed to level up my mining.  Fortunately for me, having a flying mount solves quit a few things.  And the time spend gathering and crafting allows for the queue time to expire.

Anyway, the amount of Legendary Quest token (20 tokens) drops rather quickly, considering how much of a pain it was the first time around with my 9 other toons.

Day 1312 - Mists of Pandarian Day 533

I spend most of the day concentrating on gearing up my new warrior.  I bought some starter gear (for level 85) for dpsing.  And they're definitely not enough for doing daily quests.  I died too quickly.

I did start queueing up for older instances as well as buying a Timeless Isle weapon with timeless coins.  The result is problematic.  At least I'll have plenty of experience getting used to the protection warrior rotation.

Day 1311 - Mists of Pandarian Day 532

For a change, I didn't send anyone to LFR today.  I had to concentrate on gearing up my new warrior tank, which means scrounging up all of the Timeless plate pieces for both specs to that toon.  Doing the daily quest mob on these gear is problematic, especially since my default gear set is protection warrior, which means my dps is woefully low.  I did managed to do both Ordos and Celestial weekly quest, didn't get anything, but I wasn't expecting anything.

I'm not sure about starting the Legendary quest, as there is a whole lot of steps involved.  Good thing that most of my toons don't really need gears for their main spec, so I will have plenty of time to run the warrior tank through LFR.  The bad news is that she will probably need to mine and craft her way through her profession.  At least I got 6 months to do that.

Day 1310 - Mists of Pandarian Day 531

Despite lack of time, I actually got 2 of my toons through 1 LFR instances each.  My mage's long hunt for Purified Bindings of Immerseus is over.  After I got that trinket, I departed the LFR and bring up my warlock and her attempt at getting an upgrade ring or offhand.  No such luck, but I'm not too discourage.  My warlock is well gear.

I managed to get someone to get my warrior toon into the guild, level her to level 10 and then use the level 90 boost to get her up to par.  Of course, I select protection spec as the default one.  I'm going to to be tanking quit a lot, and spending quality time on Timeless Isle gearing up.  May the LFR'ers have mercy on their soul, a wholly inexperienced warrior tank is joining your rank.

The reason I brought her up to level 10 is to get the profession trained, hoping the level boost can also accelerate her leveling.  No such luck.  Guess I'm going flying to get lots and lots of ore.

For some reason I didn't get the announcement that the support meeting is cancelled today.  2 hours of my playtime out of the window.

I got enough time to cycle all of my toons though to get their weekly loot token, get the Celesital World Boss and go through Ordos.  My main paladin toon got another necklace, this time for her dps spec.  My rogue got a new Warforged head piece that makes her the highest iLevel toon.  Finally, my monk got her normal level tanking glove.  I have to spend quit a bit of money to reforge and regemmed all of the these changes, but they're worth it.

Now that I don't have to grind out the Legendary Quest token, I have time to do focus on other things.  One thing I have found is that it's actually quit easy to do the first couple of bosses in Wraith of the Liche King Ulduar raid.  So with that in mind, I took my rogue and hunter through as much of Ulduar as I can.

One thing I have found is that we have found with the 3rd boss is that I have to actually hold back on dps during the exposed heart mode in XT-002 or I will trigger the hard mode.

Nothing of interest drop, but the second boss does have some some interesting gun that my hunter can try to get.

And all of my toons now have the Legendary Cloak.  The mage managed to get hers after running through Halls of Flesh Shaping and Vale of Eternal Sorrow.  After turning in the quest and getting Thunder King, I plow through the Celestial Blessings, ending at Jade Serpent.  Now that I know the method, getting him down was quit simple.  And then queueing repeatedly for the Celestials World Boss.  But the end result is worth it.

I also went and queue up for Ordos world boss, and manage to get new gears form 3 toons.  In the closing hour of the day, I decided to see how well I can do the mount run on Zul'Aman.  The end result is not good.  The bear boss was one shotting me, so I'm doing something wrong.  Well, I already have the bear, so that's not much of an issue for me.

Day 1301 - Mists of Pandarian Day 522

Since I ran out of LFR instances to do my remaining toon still on that run, I decided to try something I haven't gotten around to do, Ordos <Fire-God of the Yaungol>.  Previously before I got the Legendary cloak, even if I managed to hitch a ride to the other side of the broken bridge, I get punted back to the the other side when I enter the Ordon Sanctuary.  Now that I have the cloak, I decided to get into on raid browser and get into the action.  The result is actually pretty good.  Out of the 9 toons I send there, I got 4 belt (all leather wearers got a new belt, plus the shadow priest), 1 tanking shoulder (Death Knight) and one necklace (hunter).  It would appear that the cloak act as an attunement requirement, for I was able to get my mage (still cloakless) to get summoned to the sanctuary and finish the fight.  When tonight's gaming start, hopefully I can get my mage her cloak.

Surprisingly enough, I actually ran out of Valor Point to upgrade my balance druid's new belt and have to finish the weekly Timeless Isle quest, plus daily heroic dungeon, plus a couple of runs of scenario to get enough for full upgrade.  But it's worth the effort.

Someone mentioned that the Icecrown heroic dungeon was easy enough, and could be done in 30 minutes for all 3.  I clocked myself, and that's pretty much the amount of time needed.  The money earned also looks pretty good.
