Day 1897 - Warlords of Draenor Day 348

I attempt to finished up the 10 man Ulduar achievement run on my Paladin.  Got all but the annoying 25 dwarf achievement.  Looks like I'm going to have to do this naked on next raid lock out.

Day 1896 - Warlords of Draenor Day 347

On the clean up phase, I opted to bring in my Death Knight to tank most of the lower instances.  I didn't do too badly and managed to get quit a few pieces of gears as well as the legendary rings.  This is my third toon to finish the quest chain.  Just for kicks, I also upgraded the ring with a PUG Archimonde normal kill.

Day 1895 - Warlords of Draenor Day 346

We started up with Mannoroth and Archimonde first for our raid.  Mannoroth went down easy enough, but Archimonde was a bit difficult with all of the undergeared guild member trying to get them Ahead of the Curve (Archimonde) achievement.  After a while, we got him down.

When we switch over to the the rest of the upper HFC and I switch over to Dianora and she did ok.  I got 1 dps neck, an upgraded tanking shield and the heroic tier glove piece.  I can go ahead and switch out the normal tier leg piece with an non-tier heroic leg.  Trying to figure out just how frequently the 4 piece bonus for tanking goes, I signed up with the Halloween dungeon instance and the Avenger's Shield reset quit frequently, and will hard to break the set bonus.

Closing out the night, I decided to transfer the Ulduar raid lockout from the Paladin to Monk just so that the Paladin can do the 10 man Ulduar achievement.  I also decided to do the Dragon Soul farming to 25 normal for now, since there is a mount there as well.  My rogue is resuming her Legendary quest from Cataclysm, and she's about 2/3 way through.  In 2 weeks I should be done with this second leg of the quest line.

Day 1894 - Warlords of Draenor Day 345

On the last night of the raid week, I got a couple of my toons through normal HFC.  My warrior was she did get Socrethar down.  My death knight was next and she tanked Mannoroth (while teaching the other tank how to tank this somewhat tricky boss).  And my paladin got into an Xhul'horac fight and actually win the should tier token.  So now I have 4 piece bonus which drastically change how I tank and dps.  Just for fun, I also got in to Fel Lord Zakuun and got an achievement run down.  In all, an excellent night of raiding.

Day 1893 - Warlords of Draenor Day 344

I decided to take my paladin through this year's Brawler's Guild to get that last epic quality gem design.  It takes level 4, and I got through that just fine.  It's the final boss that got me.  It's a two phase fight.  I'm pretty sure I have enough dps to burn down the boss in phase 2.  It's just getting to phase 2 alive that's the problem.  I'll try again today.

The weekend bonus event is Wraith of the Liche King Timewalker dungeons.  The bonus loot is only normal HFC quality gears so neither my paladin nor my hunter will get much use out of it other than an extra bonus roll token.  My paladin did make good use of that token at tanking one of the normal HFC raid and got a rather good dps trinket.  But the rest of my toons have to go through the usual dredges of bad LFD players.

Day 1891 - Warlords of Draenor Day 342

For a change the God of RNG was on my side as my first heroic shipyard loot mission comes in for my Paladin.  I got a nice heroic version of Discordant Chorus trinket which helps out my paladin tremendously on her dps tasks.

Day 1890 - Warlords of Draenor Day 341

The cleanup raid didn't work quit as well for the lower level.  Since we're carrying a lot of people, doing it on heroic was basically asking for trouble.  We end up doing the lower level on normal, so I brought in my DK to tank the thing.

I also test out the raid lockout for mount farming with the Vaults and that is viable on normal 10 difficulty.  So now I have 4 raid instances to do the farming (ICC25H, DS25H, Ulduar25, MS10N).  One of these days the mounts will drop.

Day 1889 - Warlords of Draenor Day 340

It took me forever to get home for the Wednesday raid.  We spend 90 minutes working on Mythical raid's first encounter.  We finally got it down and defeat the first encounter.  I bonus rolled the Mythic Felfire Munitions Launcher.  The version I got also have leech bonus attributes.  I also got the Mythic version of the neck slot.  Good night.

I finished up the Ulduar clear up to the final boss in preparation for the rest of my toons farming that final boss.

I have blood test this morning, which means I have a bit of time to spend, and I spend it clearing Mogu'shan Vaults up to the boss that drops the mount.  It's not all that hard.

Day 1888 - Warlords of Draenor Day 339

We decided to clear the upper heroic HFC and we got through in short order.  I didn't get any gears, but I did get the weekly ring upgrade on the hunter.

I signed up for a normal Mannoroth and Archimonde as tank on the paladin.  The other tank only have experience tanking LFR so I walk him through the process.  Mannoroth is harder to tank than Archimonde.  I use one of the bonus roll but still didn't get anything.

With that in mind, I got my weekly clear of ICC25, still no mount.  I also got the Ulduar 25 meta achievement which gave me Ironbound Proto-Drake.  One of my toon will have to hold onto raid lock out this week while my paladin try to do the Ulduar 10 meta next week.

Day 1887 - Warlords of Draenor Day 338

A good night of gaming.  While I was doing the daily Halloween quests, I got into a raid group to get an open world boss Nakk The Thunderer.  The boss drops one of the mount I don't have yet.  Later on, I got on my warrior to some quest token.  The bonus roll was definitely with me as I got 2 tier pieces plus a tanking trinket.

Day 1886 - Warlords of Draenor Day 337

The Halloween event starts, and I ran all of my toons through the daily dungeon event.  There's also 4 new daily quests at Shadowmoon Valley.  There appears to be some newer toys drops.

Speaking of new, a new pet shows up Terky, the white Murloc.  The main issue of getting it are: open world PVP if you'r on a PVP realm (Korgath is one) and the fact the egg is actually not that bright stone on the altar.  Well, I did get my new pet.

Day 1884 - Warlords of Draenor Day 335

I was able to extend the ICC25 lockout for another week and 9 more of my toons go through the final boss on heroic setting.  Albeit, still no mount, at least it's taking less time to kill the boss than it is to go to the instance and go through all of the Role Playing scenes.

Day 1883 - Warlords of Draenor Day 334

We didn't get the final boss down in Heroic this week.  Combination of too many people missing and some really bad pulls.  Oh well, I'll have to get my weekly ring upgrade elsewhere.

The only toons I didn't managed to finish leveling up cooking was my warrior, who has the valid excuse of being an instant 90 and didn't have any skill.  Still I managed to finish that toon as well.

We have many of our regular raider not available, so my paladin gets to stand in to tank most of the the instances.  We got all of the lower instances done, but we're sorely missing the ones not here.  My paladin did get some newer gears.

The fishing boat idea is really yielding quit a bit of food.  Of course I messed it up when I use it to power level my paladin.  But I got plenty of time to work that with the rest of my toons.  Right now I'm all set with my mage/hunter with their critical food.

Day 1878 - Warlords of Draenor Day 329

After the success I had with ICC25, I decided to go after Ulduar for Alone in the Dark to get Mimiron's Head.  Prior to this expansion, I was having problem doing this.  Now that I'm fairly well geared on all of my toons, it isn't as big of a headache.  I decided to burn my instance saving character and go for some of the achievement, as I'm a couple short of getting 2 mounts from this place.

Day 1876 - Warlords of Draenor Day 327

With only 3 bosses left at heroic HFC, it didn't take long for us to finished up the raid.  For a change, we have very good attendance, enough for us to try Mythic raiding.  We spend about 45 minutes at it, getting good experiences.  It's only a matter of time for gears to catch up.

I decided to try something new.  For 2 years, I've been farming Invincible on Heroic ICC 25.  From a couple of videos on Youtube, I found out that I can share one raid lockout indefinitely amongst my  characters.  I try and got 4 characters through Heroic ICC25.  This will save me quit a bit of time.

Day 1874 - Warlords of Draenor Day 325

I had two horrendous attempt at Archimonde on my paladin before giving up and going to finish up Timewalker events on my warlock and mage.  My warlock only needs 3 dungeon run and my mage need 5.  The mage's upgraded item turns out to be far worse than the enhanced version from Tanaan Jungle, which I got some lucky roll.  The mage is now at 50% critical chance on spell self buffed.

After finishing those, I got onto a more successful Archimonde run.  For normal it is really dumb down.  Perhaps I really need to NOT do these at the last day.

Day 1875 - Warlords of Draenor Day 326

We clear most of the Heroic HFC except the last 3 bosses.  Paladin tank all of the lower half and switched over to hunter for the upper half.  The hunter didn't get any gears, but my paladin got 6 pieces of loot from Heroic HFC plus the tier chest piece from the normal (via bonus roll).  This means that I'm now having 2 piece tier 18 bonus for both Protection and Retribution.  I got new tanking weapon, ring, cloak and assorted other items.  In other words, a very good night of raiding.

Forgot to add the picture of the new mount from Icecrown 25 man heroic achievement.  Here's the new mount:

I still got a couple of more meta achievement mount to go.

We finished up most of the HFC normal.  I did get a new shield for my paladin, which is an significant improvement over the old one.

The scheduled third day of the raiding (lower level) was called off due to people not being around.  But since we've already hit our goal for the week, I wasn't that worry.

Thanks to Marinas, an old friend from back in the old Reason day, I was able to finished up the 25 man heroic Icecrown to get the second Frostwyrm mount.  Too bad the thing is just so big and unwieldy that I normally don't use it.

Day 1869 - Warlords of Draenor Day 320

The guild finished up Mannoroth in one pull and Archimonde in about 8 pulls.  This is further than my last guild before it imploded.  The hunter  got the best in slot bracer from ARchimonde.  We have so much time left over, I was able to get on my paladin and get through the first 4 bosses tanking.  By the time we got to Kilgore, we were running out of people and call it a night.

I got on a couple of other pick up raid and did Ishkar and Fel Lord Zakuun.  I got enough quest token to finish up the Legendary ring, my second character to do this.  I got the tanking and dps rings, albeit the dps one cost me quit a bit of money.  Now I just have to enchant both of them.

Oh, on my way to get the ring, I ran across Pathrunner,  I utterly didn't realize what the elite rare creature does, and only after I kill it did I realize that I've gotten Swift Breezestrider.  Another mount.
