This has becoming a trend.  For the third weekend in a roll, I got a mount.  This time the second mount off final boss of Dragon Soul, Deathwing and in Heroic mode.  I got Life-Binder's Handmaiden.  Here's the moment my warlock Roetwo looted the chest:

And her enjoying the victory lapse in Cavern of Time:

With that done, I may still keep the lockout in one way or another to help out guild member.  Next up is the Dragon Soul achievement run, which for a bare minimum will take 4 weeks.

All the while, I also decided to finish up some of the Brawler Guild quest that's been queueing up on some of my character's quest log.  Got a couple of shirts that gives out flavor text buff.

Day 1988 - Warlords of Draenor Day 439

And I started my weekly farming of Ulduar, IceCrown and Dragon Soul.  I usually started with my least geared characters and work my way up.  While I'm doing this, I also start leveling up the fishing shack of each characters as well as their fishing skill via daily fishing quest.  Since the actual daily fishing quest doesn't actually involved fishing and I got plenty of all of the fish via my fishing fleet, this is actually going to be easier than at first glance.  Of course, the leveling up to level 3 will be done on my Paladin and this will be significantly harder.

Day 1987 - Warlords of Draenor Day 438

The guild off night raid was actually going well, except we invited too many non-guild member for some of the harder fight.  I end up having to bring in my hunter for most of the upper Citadel just to help out the raid and swapped in the shadow priest for the last fight.  The shadow priest still didn't have the staff nor the trinket she was farming for.  Consider that she has only 2 bonus roll left, perhaps it's time to sit her and let other toons to come on this run.

Day 1986 - Warlords of Draenor Day 437

We spend the day working on Mythic Fel-Lord, which makes the chaotic fight of the Heroic looks like a joke.  I have the job of one of the people doing the job of soaking the pillar and the extra mechanics that entails.  The best attempt we got of him is 14%.  We will get him.

I'm not feeling as nauseating as before and my strength and stamina have return somewhat.  I was able to increase my exercise up to 15 minutes of walk.  I'm still not up for very long drive yet.

Day 1985 - Warlords of Draenor Day 436

On our new raid week, we tried to get a start on Fel Lord.  But we have some significant absence this week, so that will have to wait.  We did managed to crank through all of the farmed content and I picked up a slightly upgraded (avoidance stat) trinket.

Day 1984 - Warlords of Draenor Day 435

Instead of the free night of doing what we want, the guild organized a Mythic Blackrock Foundry run.  We still cannot get the Iron Maiden down, which impedes our progress on trying to get Blackhand.  More gear will probably help.

I'm still feeling the after effect of the surgery.  One thing I notice is the nausea and weakness in general.  Work is probably going to have to wait.

I have another elective surgery today.  Similar to the last one, and due to the scheduling issue, I didn't eat anything until about 4PM.  I was famish.  Lets hope this time the fix sticks.

Another week, another mount.  This week, my hunter got the very pretty Astral Cloud Serpent from Mogu'shan Vault.  Since my hunter gotten her big weapon upgrade, I was trying for a new personal record on the kill speed.  I wasn't paying attention and fell to my death before looting the box.  Still well worth the trouble.

The moment of the looting.

Pure Beauty.
I'm fairly positive that I've been at this boss more than 17 times, but a win is a win.  My paladin is now up to 291 mounts.  8 more mounts to go on the next achievement.

Day 1981 - Warlords of Draenor Day 432

I spend the night running Heroic HFC with my warlock and shadow priest.  Both got quite a bit of gear, though the Shadow Priest came out ahead with actual usable gears that has the right spec for her.  She even got the heroic warforged tier leg with socket..

On our off raid night, we are trying to gear up Core B and alts.  I send in my monk for the lower instance and got quit a few pieces of gear.  My Death Knight tank the upper instance and got quit a bit of gear.  I got heroic tanking ring, tier shoulder, high level legging and a one hander that could be use for Frost DPS spec.  In all, a good night.

Day 1979 - Warlords of Draenor Day 430

We finished up Kilrogg to start up the night and moved onto working on Mythic Gorefiend.  140 minutes later, we end the evening with good progress, but still no kill yet.  We will get him eventually.

Day 1978 - Warlords of Draenor Day 429

We were trying to finish up most of the lower Mythic HFC and Socrethar and leaving us time to work on Gorefiend.  We do have good attendance, but we are switching in different people, so there is some learning curve to overcome.  After spending nearly 1/3 of our time wiping to Socrethar, we got him down with a near perfect execution.  I bonus rolled the Marksman Spec Bow, and have to run a couple of Mythic Dungeon to get the Valor Point to upgrade the bow after the raid.  The tier glove did not drop for my class.  Afterward, we went back downstairs and finish up the lower instance.  I did get an upgraded belt (it's only an upgrade after VP upgrade) and we end up having only 12 minutes to try Kilrogg.  Even after extending the raid time, we still cannot get him down after 3 more wipes.  This will take away times that we could spend on the next raid night.

Day 1977 - Warlords of Draenor Day 428

I spend the day trying to get the last 7 quest tokens for the Shadow Priest.  Once again, I had to run multiple difficulty and end up running on normal difficulty Tyrant to Archimonde to get the last 2 tokens.  I actually already got the required 33 tokens when we got to Archimonde, but I decided to stick around and help out.  Much to my surprise, we actually managed to one shot him, despite many of the people in the instance, including the tank not having done the fight before.

And on the last day of the raid week, we decided to tackle Mythic Blackrock Foundry.  Now, this is an older content, and we all out geared the instance by quite a wide margin.  Extra gears means that we can avoid encounter mechanics, but we were not able to get past the encounter prior to Blackhand.  We just cannot get past the Iron Maiden with the amount of time we had.  We should have better go at it next week.  Oh, this little gem happens when we get to the railroad track.

Day 1976 - Warlords of Draenor Day 427

I tried to catch up on my sleep, so didn't do as much gaming as I could.  I did managed to get 2 more of my toons their legendary rings, Rogue and Warlock.  The rogue was one quest token away from finish the quest.  However, since I've done most of the instances already, I opted to just finish up the quest run with LFR.  It was painful, but I got it done.

The warlock was a different issue.  I had to run several different instances and difficulty before I got the final 3 tokens.  Still no tier pieces.

Finishing up my weekly mount run.  While I strikes out at Ulduar, Icecrown and Dragon Soul, I got lucky with Throne of Four Winds.  On the very last character of the week to farm that instance, my hunter, I got Reins of the Drake of the South Wind.  This completes all four Drake of the <direction> Wind mount collection.  Here's the screenshot when I looted the mount:

And with that, I'm done with the very short raid instance that has lots of bugs regarding movement between platform.

I didn't do much except running Ulduar/ICC25/DS25 mount farming run.  I got 5 out of 9 characters through.  No mount, albeit, in between farming run, I saw the Riding Turtle is up again in the Blackmarket Auction House, so my main character went to Nagrand and babysit the auction.  I win the bid at 269k gold.  Not really worth the money, but a mount is a mount.

Here's what it looks like when I got it:

We have a guild run Heroic HFC starting from the start of the instance.  I brought the rogue into the raid hoping for some upgrades.  We got most bosses down except for Iskar, Mannoroth and Archimonde.  The rogue did get some pieces of upgrade, and 1 tome away from completing the ring quest.

We finished up what we've already done in lower Mythic HFC (Kilrogg) and spend the rest of the night on Gorefiend.  We did get to the second Feast of Soul, but we're not quite there yet.

Both Ashes of Alar and Riding Turtle shows up in the BMAH.  I put in two bids for the turtle, but without me there babysitting the bids, I lost out on it.

As a guild, we actually skipped doing heroic HFC and opted to go straight into Mythic this week.  Like last week, the GM borrowed a portal to the upper HFC so we can do Socrethar who drops both the tier glove as well as the best itemized hunter weapon in game right now.  While the bow didn't drop, the GM did bonus rolled his.  We end the day finish up most of the lower except the final 2 bosses.

Day 1969 - Warlords of Draenor Day 420

I devised a system to efficiently farm the 3 raid instances for mount.  First I'll go to Northrend Dalaran, fly out to Ulduar.  Walk out of Ulduar and fly over to Icecrown Citadel.  After ICC25, jump off the tower and go back to Dalaran and go to Cavern of Time to do Dragon Soul instance.  The whole exercise takes about 45 minutes on non-mage.  It takes a bit less time on the mage, as she can always just port to Dalaran directly.

9 runs of 30-45 minutes, no mount.

Day 1965 - Warlords of Draenor Day 416

We finish clearing up the 'farmed' Mythic HFC content (Kilrogg and Kormrok) and spend the remaining 90 minutes of the raid getting practice on Mythic Gorefiend.  This is more or less an execution fight.  Lots and lots of coordination.  Lots of target switching and priority targeting.  We actually got to the first Feast of Soul which means our strategy is working.  We just have to execute better.

I spend the rest of the night running Timewalker dungeon on the hunter, getting 4/5 of the instances done.  Pit of Saron is much harder than usual if you don't do the mechanics.

Blizzard turn on Crystallized Fel available for purchase for valor point.  Now my character that cannot finish Archimonde weekly can actually upgrade their ring.

Experiment 12-B was on Blackmarket Auction House.  I got into a bidding war with someone who is gold capped.  I tried but the mount sold for more gold than I have.  Oh well, it'll be on my farming list when I'm done with DS25 Heroic.

Day 1960 - Warlords of Draenor Day 411

We have another off day raid run, and this time I brought my warlock for quest token and gear.   I got 3 pieces of heroic non-upgrade, but did get a few more pieces of quest token.

I spend the rest of the day doing the weekly mount farming of Icecrown, Uludar and Dragon Soul.  For a change, I actually run ALL of the characters through those 3 instances.  I think it's somewhat appropriate that the druid managed to get Blazing Drake off Deathwing.  This completes Awake the Drakes achievement as that Dragon Soul mount is the last on the bucket list.  The achievement unlocks Emerald Drake, which is yet another mount I need for 300 mounts.  I now have 285 mounts on Dianora the Paladin who is also an Engineer.

Here's the screenshot of getting the Blazing Drake:

And here's the same druid riding the mount in the garrison:

Day 1959 - Warlords of Draenor Day 410

On our guild off raid night, I brought the rogue and mage in to get some gear.  The rogue got a heroic  non-tier headpiece that's not optimized for the spec as well as a heroic warforged dagger.  It's a straight up upgrade, after the valor point upgrade.  Unfortunately the rogue does not have the valor point yet.

The mage got a non-tier chest piece that's also not a upgrade.
