Day 1358 - Mists of Pandarian Day 579

I had enough time to run all of my toons through the weekly warforged coin run as well as the weekly run of Ordos.  My paladin tank got a nice set of tanking belt to drive her iLevel up to 550.  My druid actually got her blindfold this past weekend, so that's one less character to run Black Temple.  My hunter got both a belt as well as a chest piece from Ordos.  This brings her equipped iLevel up to 552.  I really need to spend a bit of time on gemming and using the Ordos helm for my monk.

Tonight is when I start my Titan Runestone grind anew.  Fun.

Day 1357 - Mists of Pandarian Day 578

I've been having toothache for about 2 weeks.  Week one was my on-call week, so I didn't schedule an appointment.  Week 2 was overtaken by inertia, still one of the most powerful force in the universe.

It all came crashing down last night when I cease to be able to sleep, or lie down for extended amount of time.  Blood overflow into the area of the cavity, and my nerve bundle there just got overwhelmed with pain.

So after my shot of 5 hour energy this morning, I made my way to the dentist in the afternoon.  I already knew that a full root canal is in order, and here my second uncomfortable discovery kicks in.  I'm now a bit resistant to the anesthetic use by the dentist to null the pain.  The dentist have to inject additional ample of anesthetic to ensure that I don't hop out of the chair in pain.  Still during the process, she had to coat some of her tool with pain numbing gel to get extra bit of numbing going.

Lets see if I get to sleep tonight.

In Warcraft, I see now that there's dedicated bloody coin farmers parked at the daily question quest giver's area.  All things considered, it just makes my daily question quest goes longer.

Day 1356 - Mists of Pandarian Day 577

114 attempts.  That's how many times I've recorded ever since I installed Rarity to track my mount attempts.  I know I have 65% of seeing a 1% drop item, but surely I'd seen it by now.  Well, at least with my rogue, I can skip 99% of the trash mob between the bosses.  I can't say the same about the other mount farming in Stonecore.  But there, I'm kind of assured to have cloth and disenchant item to go around.

I'm up to about 80 runs of the The Vortex Pinnacle.  Still no mount.  At least each run takes about 4 minutes with my rogue.  Unlike my Death Knight,who basically need to dispatch everything to the boss, the rogue can avoid most things, with the single exception of two obstacle course.

My warrior manage to finish the LFR for the week early, and I managed to pick up a universal token for the helm spot.  Now I can use that meta gem.

Day 1354 - Mists of Pandarian Day 575

And I'm done with this week's token farming.  8 bosses from Siege LFR1 and LFR2, one token. This will be painfully long.

I also got around to changing my warlock's name again.  Ever since my hunter got her name, I have 2 characters starting with letter K, which makes sending in game mail a bit cumbersome in distinguishing them. So I rename my warlock to Roetwo.  I looked up on the and found only one other Roetwo, I doubt if they name the character after the same character I had in mind.

After a bit of issue (I keep on forgetting how hard Thunder Forge solo instance was) and one short corpse run on throwing the spear, I got my legendary meta gem.  I don't have a proper helm to put in yet, so that can wait.

Day 1352 - Mists of Pandarian Day 573

And I'm done with farming the first 2 LFR for Throne of Thunder.  I somehow managed to run ALL of the Throne of Thunder LFR yesterday, picking up the last 4 remaining quest token.  I didn't have enough time to run the follow quest in Thunderforge, so that'll have to wait until the next day.  Unfortunately for me the next tier of quest token is from a more limited number of LFR, 2 of which I've already done this week.  Well, time to get started, again.

Day 1351 - Mists of Pandarian Day 572

On the weekly raid reset day, I log into each and every one of my character, park right alongside the daily quest giver that awards 45g.  Unfortunately for me, a bunch of bloody coin farmer is also parked there.  After going through enough of my character to realize how much of a time wasting effort it is to fight back, I opted to just corpse run to the spirit healer next to the Celestial Court and continued from there.

My paladin got an upgrade version of Tier 16 tanking legguard.  But seeing that I'm already wearing a higher iLevel legguard, I might have to continue to farm Ordos to get a different matching piece.  The mage got a warforged legguard, which I'm not going to use, as it'll break the Tier bonus.  The hunter did get an upgraded belt, but I didn't have time to fully upgrade it yet, so I'll need to take care of that later.

Finally, my warrior got the transmogrification axe Gorehowl.  Now she really have no reason to run Kara anymore.

Less than one week after I start re-doing the fishing quest again, my monk also has her fishing hat.  That's one more daily grind out of the way.  Now only my daily Kalu'ak rep grind left.

Day 1349 - Mists of Pandarian Day 570

I spend about 2.5 hours yesterday running my Death Knight through The Vortex Pinnacle in hope of getting a mount.  In all, I managed to run 26 shot at the boss.  No mount.  But I am keeping track of of the number of times this run of futility is running.  Fortunately like the boss in The Stonecore, it can be farm on normal mode.  Since the last patch extend the number of times I can run through instances from 5 to 10, I actually can run quit a bit of runs to get that mount.

I did a rough calculation.  If I ran The Kalu'ak's3 daily quest every day, it will take me 13 more days until I can get Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole, which has the added benefit of water breathing.  Now that I'm a bit short on things to do, I'm also doing the daily fishing quest from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Liche King and Cataclysm to get the fishing hat for the monk, my only level 90 without it.  It's totally a luck of the drawl.

Day 1347 - Mists of Pandarian Day 568

Spend the day mainly on my warrior and death knight.  On the warrior side, I managed to get a couple of transmogrification pieces (mainly tier one), but didn't have any luck on getting that remaining tier 16 piece for tanking.

On the death knight side, I ran Siege LFR3 twice to to no loot.  I did managed to get the shoulder token, thus finishing the tier 16 tanking set pieces.  I also ran the Siege LFR1 to look for chest token.  No luck.  I do have more extra loot token, so I might want to do that again.

Day 1346 - Mists of Pandarian Day 567

I got a couple of more quest token yesterday, completing my entire week of allotment.  What's not surprising is the utter failure of some of the 'tanks' I saw running around in LFR.  Yesterday while going up against Siege LFR2 boss Galakras, we have a monk 'tank' that no only have never tank the boss before, have also never been to the encounter before.  Needless to say, we wiped on that particular encounter because none of the 'tanks' knew what they were doing.

I didn't queue as tank because I was a bit busy leveling my fishing and getting the fishing hat.  On only my third day of doing the daily fishing quest of pre-Pandarian expansion, I got my hat.  With that out of the way, I start grinding the reputation from one of the faction that awards a good fishing rod.  I will need to get my monk back into daily fishing routine to get her own fishing hat.

I still got 2 Siege LFR left as well as some of the older instances to farm.  Plenty of things to do.

Unlike the first week of token grind, my attempt this week have been far less successful.  10 bosses down, and only 4 tokens.  Albeit, I still got 13 more bosses left with 1 guarantee drop.  The chances of me finishing this part of the grind this week is too low.

Ran though all of my toons through weekly run of Ordos.  Some of my toons got some decent upgrade, include my severely undergeared instant 90 warrior, who got a Warforged tanking necklace.  Doing the weekly quests and Ordos sort of ate all of my times today, so raiding tomorrow.

One thing that will determined my play on the next expansion is the choice of the pet I'll have out.  I'm almost positive that The Ethereal Soul Trader will be out the whole time for me to buy all of those flavor item.  Not sure how that item will be treated with toybox that's being implemented.

The warrior managed to hit her weekly valor point cap, so I'm a bit low on things to do.  I opted to do Black Temple and Battle of Mount Hyjal again.  And I got the leather head piece that my druid would like to get, but didn't.  I also managed to complete the Tier 6 set for Warrior.  And of course Warglaive of Azzinoth dropped for her.  It's the main hand.  Now only the off hand for the complete look.

Yesterday, I saw that Ethereal Soul Trader was available on the auction house for 40k.  Since I won't be able to afford the more expensive mounts (they all cost more than 190k), I gather my funds and bought it.  I was a bit disappointed that this trader will NOT buy anything back from me, but as a rather rare pet, it's worth the money.

Day 1340 - Mists of Pandarian Day 561

I had to get my car service today.  Tried to get an appointment made yesterday, but couldn't.  Next time I'll do it 2 weeks in advance.  The actual service took most of the morning.  I didn't bring my laptop with me, trying to travel light.  So the only thing I brought is my tablet.  I did managed to walk around the shopping mall adjacent to the car dealership, twice.  At least I got my 10k steps in.

After finishing all of the possible instances that could drop the quest token, I'm now 8/20 way through.  This could be done as early as next week.  I can be hopeful.

Day 1339 - Mists of Pandarian Day 560

In turning today's daily quest on Timeless Isle, my Black Prince 3000 valor point quest became complete.  I turn that in right away and onto the next 2 quests, the PVP and the Horde elite world boss.  I did get some help on the world boss.  I supposed that's a karma payback when this toon answered someone else's call for that quest.  Surprisingly enough for the PVP portion of the quest, I managed to do just one game each, and won both games.  Now onto the next tier of grind quests, Secret of the Empire.  Unfortunately for me, I've already ran some of the raid instance that could drop those.  But fortunately for me, being a tank means a much shorter queue time.  I quickly did all of the Throne of Thunder instances, and got quite a few.

New raid week, and my highest priority is to get my toons through the weekly run at Ordos.  Mage, Death Knight and Monk got pieces of upgrade.  I didn't have time to integrate the upgrade piece for Mage and Monk yet, but I'll do that later.

Current priority is still to get my warrior her 3 thousand valor points to satisfy the Black Prince quests.  that means doing the daily quest, doing the daily dungeon and running LFR.  Upgrade are now happening at a much slower pace.

Since I'm mostly out of transmogrification instance/raid run, I opted to take sort of a weekend day off.  I actually log onto Hearthstone and play until I win 3 games to get Hearthsteed mount.  Figure I better get it now while the place is still pack full of newbies.  It looks fine, and I'm glad I spend time on getting it.

Now that I've done getting tier gears for my Paladin, the remaining toons still farming for tier gear is my instant 90 warrior and my death knight, who still need a couple of pieces to complete her tanking set.  Unfortunately, it would appear that LFR is choke full of instant 90s and the quality of the raider have seriously deteriorated.

After running through my weekly maximum allotment of valor points on the warrior, I hop onto the other toon that still could use upgrade via valor points.  And the quality of LFD is just as bad as LFR.  Well, there is an end in sight...

Ran all of my toon through Ordos yesterday.  For the first time since I start farming Ordos, I strikes out.  But that's to be expected.  My shadow priest did get her iLevel 553 gloves, so that's one less piece of gear to collect.

My shield farming on my warrior is now down to 2 shields (one from Black Temple, one from Blackwing Lair).  But I'm not in that much of a hurry.  On other front, the reputation grind for Black Prince is already over.  I'm just waiting on my valor point grind to get onto the next step, which I'm dreading.  In better news, the cloud serpent reputation grind is going so well that I should be done tomorrow.  This means I can ride my cloud serpent on all of my max level characters.

On the last day of the raid week, I tried to get my Death Knight some gear through tanking.  It was not a good night to do this as skillset of the group decreases as the week goes on.  I only managed to get to 1 LFR boss getting gears I already have.  The rest of encounters were not good.

On the warrior front, she continues to far for her shield and sword from Wraith Heroic dungeon.  Since they're heroic, I can only do them one at a time.  Well, I have time.
