Day 1597 - Warlords of Draenor Day 48

Spend a long night raiding in High Maul.  For the firs time ever, I walk away from there empty handed.  Well, it's bound to happen.  Meanwhile, a lot of my follower mission are failing for no apparent reason.  I have a iLevel 645 weapon quest success rate at 96 and 76 percent failed.  Those quest will eventually cycle back.

Day 1596 - Warlords of Draenor Day 47

Last day of the raid week.  I did my once a week tribute to the Lich King.  Still no mount.  Perhaps I should start doing 25 man heroic soon for money.

After trying out Stables building for 1 day, I realized that only one character needs to do the quests.  So, the hunter gets her barracks, up to level 2 back, and I gets to run taming mission on the rogue.  On my paladin, I got maximum amount of the crystal allowed, so I bought the epic level glove for 15000 unit of crystals.

Finished up, I send my Druid and Death Dnight through LFR.  Druid got 5 pieces of new gears, and Death Knight got 2, plus one new iLevel 645 trinket from the follower mission.

Day 1594 - Warlords of Draenor Day 45

I have to stop leveling my 5 remaining non-100 toons and concentrate on my level 100 for a moment.   I decided to convert the barracks for my rogue and hunter to stables so I can collect the mounts.  And finally, I got the warrior into this week's LFR.  3 pieces of upgrades.

Day 1593 - Warlords of Draenor Day 44

I think I'm going to stop doing the daily holiday quest now.  The main reason why I was spending all of that time flying out from Ironforge to the world boss area is to give my rogue her 2 daggers once she hits level 100.  That has been done, so no real reason to spend all that time again.

Day 1592 - Warlords of Draenor Day 43

Now that my characters all of a good cast of followers, it's taking more and more time to just cycle through and give them missions to do.  Compounding the issue is that some of the mission gave me stuff that they cannot use yet and are really useful when they reach level 100.  Oh the wait.

Day 1591 - Warlords of Draenor Day 42

Even though I don't celebrate Christmas, I still spend a bit of money on myself this year.  Ok it was quite a bit this year, blowing all of my previous Christmas expenses.  Oh well, I can think of it as a birthday gift to myself.

The next couple of days should be a bit free up, so I'll go ahead and level up the rest of my characters.  Going 5 at a time is a bit time consuming.

Day 1590 - Warlords of Draenor Day 41

On the last day of the raid week, I send my remaining 2 level 100 to Highmaul LFR.  The Death Knight got 4 pieces of gear, but no weapon.  Paladin didn't get anything except for a dps cloak that she already have something better.  This coming week is a non-guild raiding week, so I should have plenty of time to do what I want.

Day 1589 - Warlords of Draenor Day 40

Got the remaining characters out of Shadowmoon Valley.  I also took 3/5 of my 100 through LFR.  No weapon, but we did get minor upgrades here and there.

Day 1587 - Warlords of Draenor Day 38

Start leveling my remaining toons again.  This time, I'm going in somewhat deliberate fashion, getting all of the questline followers as they come along.  I'm saving up the follower upgrade items for later use.

Day 1586 - Warlords of Draenor Day 37

Spend 3 hours on the final 2 boss of the raid.  We did get the 6th boss down, and spend some quality time going after the final boss.  I got a tanking ring and got a 2 hander weapon of my bonus loot.  I consider it a good night of raiding.

Day 1585 - Warlords of Draenor Day 36

The Christmas event starts.  This is a particularly stupid event for Alliance to attend, as the nearest Alliance capital is quit far away from the world boss location.  It takes quit a bit of time for me to position all of my eligible toons  there.

Day 1584 - Warlords of Draenor Day 35

We did the normal raid again.  This time, we got the first 5 boss down, plus the first boss again in heroic mode.  Got a tanking cloak plus another raid level boot.

Day 1583 - Warlords of Draenor Day 34

On the last day of the raid week, I jokingly decided to go into LFR on my main character.  I got onto a raid already in progress, with the first boss dead.  It was far far easier than I anticipated, and this is even with youtube tales of tourist mode on the LFR.  With that in mind, I went ahead and send the rest of my toons through LFR.  My DK got 2 pieces of gears, druid, one, warrior one.  My monk was a couple of iLevel point below the threshold, so I ran one LFD to gear up.  The monk didn't get any gear, but she was the first one to actually got selected to tank.  My druid tanking is very very fragile right now, but I did managed to go through the entire LFR just fine.

Day 1582 - Warlords of Draenor Day 33

After doing a couple of round of Iron Dock, I finished up the Stormwind transmog set.  Here's how my gnome warlock (normally a clothie only class) looks like while riding the Alliance bike.  Ok, she's standing on the Alliance bike.

Stormwind Gnome Warlock on Alliance Bike

I gave my Death Knight a couple of more tries at Silver Tanking proving ground.  Still got stopped at 7/8 wave.  I guess I need a bit more gears.  After that, I took the garrison support mission for the druid and went off to the Iron Horde base on the southern end of Shadowmoon Valley.  I check and I realize that this toon is eligible to queue for Molten Core LFR.  I didn't see any premade, so sign up.  It was a very very long 3 hours of LFR.  I died on every other pull.  At least I got the starter epic helm for my druid.

After doing a random heroic, I realized that I'm 2 non-token pieces away from completing the Stormwind transmog set.  So I went ahead and try to farm Iron Horde at Talador and got about 30 Iron Horde Scraps.  After doing that for about 45 minutes, I decided to alter my method and drag my person all the way up to the entrance of Iron Dock and farm the Iron Horde there on normal mode.  The mobs there are only level 94 elite which my paladin can handle.  I decided to clear all the way up to the second boss and the drop rate is actually somewhat decent.

Day 1580 - Warlords of Draenor Day 31

Since I failed at doing the Garrison invasion with pick up group last time, this time I ask member of the guild for assistance.  They'll also get loot bag if the defense is successful.  It works, but we didn't get anything meaningful.  I started the day doing a quick run through Icecrown and end up finishing up Nagrand story quest lines.

Day 1579 - Warlords of Draenor Day 30

Just for good measure on my gearing, I went ahead and get one of my blacksmith alts to make my paladin her epic quality belt.  It's only a 640 epic belt, and I don't have a way of advancing it.  But it does bring my gear level up to 645 equipped.

Day 1578 - Warlords of Draenor Day 29

Tank the next 2 bosses as well as putting up some quality time on the fifth boss.  I picked up 2 more piece of Highmaul gear (cloak and leg).  Those two pieces replaces their respective counter part for both of my specs.  So I don't have to lug them around anymore.

Day 1577 - Warlords of Draenor Day 28

Finally got my Inn achievement done, which unlocks level 3 Inn building blueprint.  I was a wee bit underwhelm on the quests that it unlocks.  Just money.

I also ran the Highmaul raid instance with the old guild, now in a new guild.  Tank the first 2 bosses, and managed to get some much needed gears off the second boss (use a bonus roll to get an tanking weapon).  In all, a good day.

Day 1576 - Warlords of Draenor Day 27

Last raiding day of the week.  I did my usual garrison gathering and sending out my followers on mission.  Since I'm pretty much done for the day, I went out to Fireland again to try to get the final boss's hammer.  I didn't get the hammer, but I did get something that's much better, the second mount from the instance, from the firebird boss:

Now that all of the tank alts have a bunch of upgrades on their belt, I tried to get the Silver Proving ground done so I can do Heroic Dungeon.  It's a bit tougher than I anticipated.  I remember this wasn't easy on my Paladin, but it's much harder on my alts.

Day 1573 - Warlords of Draenor Day 24

Got most of my toon's bunkers up and running.  I realize that I don't really need to kill myself on doing some of the achievement requirement for the higher level buildings, so just to prepare myself, I went ahead and buy all of the blueprints of those buildings I need.  Good thing, I don't want to regrind to get higher level barracks, lumber mill and salvage yard.

Day 1571 - Warlords of Draenor Day 22

Took many of my toons through their daily apex crystal run.  I'm going to have to figure out a schedule for how to do all of this.  The first raid for the expansion is now open.  Since the rest of my guild still have not show up, as I expected, I'll have to go out and do all of this on my own.  I think I'm geared enough to at least get into the normal raid.

Day 1570 - Warlords of Draenor Day 21

In the past 4 days I have to make multiple trips to the cable company to swap out parts.  The last straw for me is when they gave me a box minus the power cable.  That's a good chunk of my vacation time out for nothing.

I also spend the weekly game reset on my annual Indian casino donation run.  This year I only donated $30.  I spend far far more money on my way home than at the casino, eating lunch, buying ties and groceries shopping.

Day 1569 - Warlords of Draenor Day 20

And I got my Death Knight and Druid up to level 100.  And I realize that these alt toons are currently very short on Garrison Resources to do any building upgrade.  The Death Knight is short about 500 GR to even upgrade the whole garrison to level 3, and the Druid does have enough.  The rest of my toons I'm currently leveling will also be short.

I spend a good chunk of the day searching for the elusive fallen log to get the Alliance Barov NPC to join my garrison.  I'm not sure if this is strictly necessary, but I believe I've already unlocked the lumber mill achievement for level 3.  I'll probably not going out of my way to do this in the future.
