Day 1868 - Warlords of Draenor Day 319

After bribing my guild member to come finish up the meta-achievement for the Fireland raid, I got my new mount.  It's quite beautiful looking.
Corrupted Fire Hawk
And I had to spend a bit of time finishing the heroic dungeon Cataclysm achievement to get that mount as well.
Volcanic Stone Drake
My guild skip the lower half of HFC and went straight for the upper half.  Iskar went down quite easily, but we spend over an hour on Fel-Lord again.  In all, we have Mannoroth and Archimonde left for our second night of raiding.

Day 1867 - Warlords of Draenor Day 318

I watch a couple of videos about the meta achievement mount guide and decided to try to get some of them.  I've already done most of it for Fireland except for two.  One of them requires me to to kite one boss all over the place.  The second requires me to get 5 other people.  I'm going to try bribing 5 other guild member to help me out.

I have done most of the Cataclysm dungeon achievement.  I spend most of the night trying to get that done.  I messed up on two of the achievement, so I'll try that next day.

There are many more Pandaren dungeon achievement compared to Cataclysm.  I have to do quite a bit more work.  I'm not too concern with Pandaren raid yet.

Day 1866 - Warlords of Draenor Day 317

Now that I'm done with both my Paladin and Hunter, time for the rest of my toons.  I actually tank my way through the lower half of HFC normal on my Death Knight.  I did get a tier leg piece for this toon.

My warrior has less luck.  She went through 2.5 bosses in lower HFC.  After the Kormrok, one of the tank quit.  Luckily, I can tank quit well on the warrior and we went through council fight easily enough.  We cannot get through Kilrogg, I have to go to sleep.

I'm kind of surprised at how easy or hard some of the bosses are in a pick up raid.  For the supposed harder raid in the upper half of the HFC, Tyrant went down quite easily.  Most of the boss there went down within 3 pull or less.    I didn't get any useful gear out of the instances, but I'm 4 quest token to get my rings.

Day 1864 - Warlords of Draenor Day 315

My paladin has already done the heroic Hellfire Citadel up to Gorefiend.  Right now, I'm just trying to get quest token to finish up the legendary quest.  To get each bosses that I haven't seen this week, I end up having to do things piecemeal.

For starter, I still need to do Mannoroth on normal to get a shot at chest tier token and a quest token.  Didn't get the chest piece, but did advance the quest by one more token.  I then have to sign up for different raids in various state of completeness.  Being that I can both tank and dps, I have some latitude on doing things.  I managed to re-clear the lower raid instance, without getting the leg token from Gorefiend normal.

Day 1863 - Warlords of Draenor Day 314

I got my hunter through heroic Archimonde, which earns me Ahead of the Curve: The Black Gate.  Since many pick up group raid requires that, I'm not  exactly sure if I can use this achievement on the rest of my toons.  Not that I really wants it, but I didn't get the Hunter trinket from Archimonde...

Day 1862 - Warlords of Draenor Day 313

We actually got pretty far on our second night of raiding.  We actually complete Fel-Lord in 2 pull (consider how glitchy he was and we're running with new people, some of whom never seen the fight before).  Fel-Lord has nothing my hunter wants, so I held off on the bonus roll.

Tyrant was in many respect, much much easier fight.  It's a gear check as well as an execution check.  There are no twitchy RNG mechanics like Fel-Lord, nor the raid wide control issue from the Voidwalker boss.  Surprisingly enough, we down her in 2 pulls as well.  And that was the first time this guild went to this boss.

We have well over an hour when we got to Mannoroth.  Since we've already ran normal instances the previous night, the fight should be familiar to most of the guildy.  We managed to down the boss in 3 pulls.  Both the guild master and my hunter got the tier chest token, which allows me to really upgrade my gears.

We then spend 30 minutes on working on Archimonde.  Working as a guild on this really stress me that a guild group going up against hard bosses really makes things easier.  I still need to get my hunter her Archimonde kill for the Legendary ring upgrade.

Day 1861 - Warlords of Draenor Day 312

We're short both tanks, I was able to fill in on my Paladin for the first couple of bosses in heroic HFC.  But in the end, I only managed to replace heroic version of gears I already have in normal on my paladin.  My hunter came in and managed to get the heroic tier shoulder from the voidwalker bosses.  We managed to do 10 out of 13 bosses on the first night of the raid week which is pretty good for this new more casual guild.

Day 1860 - Warlords of Draenor Day 311

One of the guild tank will not be able to make the raid this week, which means I'm tapped to be the tank on the heroic run.  I think I got most of the mechanics down.  Good thing my hunter no longer need any gears from the lower level bosses.

I also got the Brewfest out of the way.  If I'm going to be doing anything is to save up event token to buy more of the new pet, which can be caged and sold.

Day 1859 - Warlords of Draenor Day 310

Finally finished up the Mythic dungeon on my paladin, and my reward is a heroic version of the belt that I'm already wearing.  Well, an upgrade is an upgrade.

Brewfest also started.  This year, there are 3 new items, 1 new pet and 2 new toys.  One of the toy only cost 100 event token, so I use one of my 10 toon's token take on first day to buy them.  The other 2 items takes 200 each, and will require an extra day.

I also decided to start working from office again.  Lets see how that pans out.

Day 1856 - Warlords of Draenor Day 307

I've been running Mythical dungeon for the weekly event on my paladin.  And not being able to cheese Everbloom really makes things hard.  I went to Skyreach to get the gem design for one of the ones I didn't have.  The instance was hard, and I died many times.  We gave Everbloom a couple of try, and try as we may, our composition was not good enough to beat the final boss.

I later did Auchindoun and got my second Mythic for the week.  This will take time.

Day 1855 - Warlords of Draenor Day 306

On our second night, we were having tremendous problem with the Fel-Lord RNG again.  After adjusting some positioning RNG finally smiles upon us and give us the kill.  We wrapped up the night with the Xhul'horac, which should be an harder boss, but we managed to down it none-the-less.  I lost out on the shoulder piece.

The after raid normal raiding consisted of doing Mannoroth and Archimonde.  Due to tanks dropping out, I end up tanking Archimonde on the paladin.  Not that hard really.  It's everyone else's job that's hard.

Day 1854 - Warlords of Draenor Day 305

The guild was having problem in the previous week with Shadow Lord Iskar.  This week, we managed to finish him up quickly and did get some attempts in on the big fel/shadow guy.  In all, a good night.  I got all of my toons up to meet Kazzak and only my druid got one piece of upgraded loot.

Prior to the raid, I ran my hunter through normal Mannoroth and Archimonde to get her weekly legendary ring upgrade.  After the raid, I took my paladin through the first half of the instance in normal mode.  The paladin is using the two hander from Archimonde from previous week, but I mostly run these just to get legendary ring quest token.

Day 1853 - Warlords of Draenor Day 304

I got quite a few of my characters through Tanaan Jungle dailies to get them exalted with the faction.  Still a long way to go as they're at most, 1/4 of the way there.

I did spend 2.5 hours on my hunter with a PuG 30 man heroic Mannoroth.  After all that hard work and 280g of repair bill, we got him down.  My hunter is even #1 on the damage meter.  And my reward coming off from the bonus roll is the best in slot bow.  Ok, Now I'm happy.

Day 1852 - Warlords of Draenor Day 303

I'm technically back at work, working at home.  This is simply due to the fact that I don't think I can physically drive to work yet, and there is a procedure that I have to do regularly, which can only be performed at home.  I'm still having lingering effect from the anesthesia on my legs, which I'll have to ask the surgeon about.  I have a follow up appointment with him this week.  Other than the first day, I've stopped taking the heavy pain medication, as I'm not really in pain.

I did visit the new Costco.  Parking will be a pain, and we'll have to map out the optimal method of actually getting in there.  But we'll manage.  I'm thankful that there is now a Costco gas station nearby.

I'm still missing the mage chest piece from the Tier 5.  After much role playing delay, the final boss from The Eye still did not yield the chest token.

The weekend event this week is once again something I have no interest in.  So I opted not to do any of it.  I have been getting the toons that's lacking in Legendary quest tokens their token run in LFR.  Until the situation gets better, I'm not doing Archimonde in LFR.  Simply too much headache.

After more than 2 decades, the Costco closest to my house closes.  Their lease was up, the building was an ancient Price Club (and prior to that some other entity).  The new Costco opened and as expected, it was a nightmare.  The parking was not ready.  We decided to not do our weekly shopping trip there, opting for Van Nuys store.

The guild's second off night HFC normal yielded the Archimonde kill that finally allows my hunter to upgrader her ring.  More to come.

Day 1849 - Warlords of Draenor Day 300

The surgery went well, I supposed.  I was only prescribed a anti-inflammatory pill Ketorolac and the old standby Hydrocodone which I despise.  The day of the surgery, I basically ate next to nothing.

There was quit a bit of bleeding at the surgical site, but we did managed to get the necessary supplies to get that taken cared of.

I was feeling groggy from the aftereffect of the anesthetic that put me out for the surgery.  What was actually worse was the temperature in the house that basically got me sleepless.  Good thing I didn't have to work the next day.

On the non-raiding night, we managed to get the guild to do normal Mannoroth.  Still didn't get any useful gear out of it.

The new raid week brings a new raiding guild.  When I log onto the game, I look at one of the guild tank that's still playing on this server (the other guy transferred).  He got my hunter onto a more casual guild, and we managed to get the lower half of the Heroic HFC down.  Still a welcome change from previous week.  Quit a few of the old guild member are here as well.

Oh tomorrow is my surgery.  Now sure about my availability.

So my guild falls apart.  Taking the failure to raid on our previous raid night, some of the better geared (and frankly they've gotten all of the gears from Heroic raid difficulty) decided to go to Mythical raid.  Wish all the best luck to them, we'll just have to start from scratch.

We did put in 3 solid hours on Mannoroth though.  Still haven't gotten him down.

Oh, patch 6.2.2 dropped, and it broked quit a few stuff.  I'm probably going to have to manually fix TidyPlate based on suggestions on the official mod forum.
