Day 2050 - Warlords of Draenor Day 501

We got one hour to spend on Tyrant, however, we did get Gorefiend and I bonus rolled the Tier leg piece with socket.  So that's a very big upgrade.  Socrethar dropped a Warforged crossbow, but I lost the roll.

Day 2049 - Warlords of Draenor Day 500

We have a semi ok raid night and we didn't get through all of the boss we wanted.  The big one we didn't killed is Gorefiend.  We'll get him tomorrow.

Day 2048 - Warlords of Draenor Day 499

I spend the last day of the raid week farming Blackwing Descent.   Running on 25 heroic, I average 1.5k per character.  With 10 characters, 15k for about 3 hours of work.  I try out Arcane spec on the mage, and I really don't know how to play it correctly yet and I almost died a couple of times fighting Nefarian.

Day 2047 - Warlords of Draenor Day 498

Since my shadow priest didn't do the guild run alt group, I was able to join a fresh heroic HFC to farm for Tier token.  We had tremendous amount of trouble with Iron Reaver.  Once that boss was done (after reconstitute the group about 4 times) we were able to proceed.  Unfortunately for me, the raid leader decided to do Kormack after most of the other bosses in the lower level.  I stick with it and didn't see the token drop.  And of course the bonus roll turn up empty.

I decided to try grinding out the last piece of Tier gear for my rogue.  I have chest and glove piece left.  I ran both heroic and normal Mannoroth and got the best in slot dagger off heroic version.  I've already ran the heroic version of Socrethar with the guild, so I went with a pickup group that's mostly a guild alt run.  The glove token dropped and no one wanted it.  So now I have to concentrate on my shadow priest.

Day 2045 - Warlords of Draenor Day 496

My throne of Thunder farming is at an end.  On my second toon of the week to farm the place, my monk got the mount off Horridon:
Only 31 Attempts to get him

Albeit, this isn't a boss that I can farm on all of my characters.  Still glad it's over with.  This is how my monk look right next to the boss that drops the mount.  Too bad the extra stuff on the boss isn't on the mount.

Day 2044 - Warlords of Draenor Day 495

I brought in the mage for the lower section of HFC off night.  Didn't get any of the upgrades drops.

I split the differences between various boss in the upper HFC.  I brought in Rogue for Socrethar for both the tier glove and  Soul Capacitor.  The tier glove didn't drop, but I did bonus rolled a Heroic warforged capacitor.

Shadow priest was brought in for Xhul'horac and the last boss of the evening.  She didn't get the tier token and Shadow Lord didn't drop the caster trinket.

Day 2043 - Warlords of Draenor Day 494

For the second week in a roll we didn't have much problem with Gorefiend.  2 pull and he's down.  The tier pants token dropped, but I didn't win it.

The biweekly shipyard gear missions starts again, and thus far, I've have no luck on getting good gers.

Day 2042 - Warlords of Draenor Day 493

We have a lot of problem with people not showing up and network issue.  Still, we got all but Kormak and Gorefiend left in terms of our farmed content left.

After the raid, I finished up the dinosaur bone farming.  However, today's farming was hampered by a trio of priest that seem to go out of their way to grief me.  After a while, I just decided to realm hop to a PVE server and just finished that up.  Here's what the mount looks like:

Day 2041 - Warlords of Draenor Day 492

So on the last raid night of the week, I decided to do something different.  After farming for the claws in Tanaan Junle for the 2 mount plus the pet to get my 300 mounts, there's something similar in Pandaria, the Isle of Giants and the Giant Dinosaur Bone farming.  9999 bones finish the quest A Mountain of Giant Dinosaur Bones and the mount Bone-White Primal Raptor.  I went on my hunter and in about 90 minutes, I got about 4k bones.  This is definitely something I can knock out quickly.  I can also buy a spectral porcupette pet for 1k, which I'll do after acquiring the mount.

For fun, I sign up to a Mythical Siege of Orgrimmar raid, and we have between 10-12 people in the group.  It was for the most part easy until we got to Siegecrafter, which we wipe a couple of times.  We couldn't get the final boss down because people simply cannot do the mechanics.

Off night raiding.  As usual, I brought my shadow priest and rogue to try getting tier pieces and class trinket.  My rogue did get her shoulder and is now 3/5 tier pieces.  The shadow priest got the class trinket, albeit, using it still takes a bit of practice.

And we finish Gorefiend in 2 pulls.  So much so, we have an extra hour to do progression on Tyrant.

Our best attempt got her to 3rd phase.  Still a good night of raiding.

I went ahead and finish grind out the last Tanaan Jungle mount.  It took me about a hour and here's the mount Bristling Hellboar:

And with that I got Lord of the Reins achievement.  Here's what the mount looks like:

Day 2035 - Warlords of Draenor Day 486

We didn't get through as many bosses as we like on our first raid night of the week.  We took longer clearing upper floor as we had hope, and we ended up two boss short than our intended.

After the raid, I decided to concentrate on farming for claws again.  By dipping into fel sludge 9 times, I increases my damage by 45%.  I also increases damage intake by the same amount, but I'm doing this on Dianora, so that's not much of an issue.  Hopefully by the end of the week, I'll get my mount.

Day 2034 - Warlords of Draenor Day 485

I had two separate doctor's appointment yesterday.  The first one was actually scheduled for something I've already resolved, but I use it to get treatment for the flu.  They did a swap, and yes, I have the flu.  Lets hope the prescription does the trick.

On my second doctor's appointment, the surgeon finally removed the drainage device which has been with me for 2 months.  Finally.

While the guild cleanup raid didn't go as planned (not enough people show up), I did have a good day of mount farming.  On the last toon to go through Zul'Gurub, my warrior scored her first farmed mount Armored Razzashi Raptor.  Only took 189 attempts.  Here's the screenshot for the loot and the victory pose:

Much later, before the day is over, I decided to farm for the remaining two Tanaan Jungle mount, the Saberstalker mount, which requires an tremendous amount of farming.  The first mount only requires 1000 Blackfang Claw.  Fortunately for my Paladin, her class and gear are geared towards farming the creatures that drops them.  I got about 400 claws after about 1 hour of farming.  I guess I'll be doing these on my spare time to get the second mount, which requires 5000 claws.

Here's the Wild Goretusk.

Day 2033 - Warlords of Draenor Day 484

I was feeling a wee bit better, but still have to go see the doctor later.  This flu is more severe than most of the recent one.  The flu shot totally missed the mark this year.

I wrapped up Horridon mount farming by adding Kycilia (hunter) and Roetwo (warlock).  I need to adjust my strategy with hunter, or just bring an aoe tank pet on her.  The warlock isn't exactly working just yet.

After getting getting Experiment 12-B, I didn't have any hope of getting new mount, and I was not disappointed.

And when I woke up, I felt scratching on the back of my throat, and I progressively got sicker as the day goes.  By the afternoon, I was having full blown flu symptom and it's not fun.  I generally don't take any pain medication, but my fever wasn't broken until I took some advil.

Day 2029 - Warlords of Draenor Day 480

And Gorefiend is down.  We'll need to down him 3 more times to skip him completely.  But we'll probably keep doing him until everyone got his loot.  We spend a solid 3 hours on him with assistant from two other well geared person.  Here's a video of the final pull of the night.

After the raid, the guild was doing Heroic Archimonde and I brought in my mage to try getting the spellcaster staff.  Didn't get it, but I did get the headpiece (that was the best in slot for fire mage).  And I also bonus rolled the same headpiece as well...

Day 2028 - Warlords of Draenor Day 479

For a change, we actually finish all of the content on the first day of the raid week.  Nothing of note dropped for me.  Our progression have more to do with the fact that people keep on dropping out of raiding and we have to train new people to do the job all over.  Gorefiend is more or less an execution fight, and no amount of gear will help us.

On the last day of the raid week, I finished up Throne of Thunder farming with the 4 tank toons.  No mount, but the tank that did the best is my druid who basically didn't do the mechanics and still finished up the boss faster and with near full health.  My monk almost die a couple of times and have to really utilize the four piece bonus to save myself.

When I woke up, Blackmarket Auction House have Clutch of Ji-Kun, the other mount from Throne of Thunder, one that I currently have no ability to get to.  When I saw the bid, it was already at 650k gold.  Since it still have a long auction timer to go, I went about doing other things.  By the time I finished and the auction came near a close, it was still at $650k.  I set timer to my best estimation of when the auction have 30 minutes left.  I then went about fishing lunker for the mount from Nate Pagel.

By the time my timer went off I went back to the auction house and place a single bid, which is automatically raised to 682k.  For the times I babysit the auction, there's a grand total of one other person looking at the auction.  He gave up and hearth back to garrison.  And I win the bid which depletes my fund to a dangerous level.  But that's a mount I don't have to farm anymore.

Here's what the mount looks like right outside the auction house.

On the raiding front, it took us longer to get the 2 upper HFC boss down so we only managed to take down 4 boss for the night instead of 7 we were hoping for.  This means that we'll have far far less time to do Gorefiend this week.

Another year pass and still no Big Love Rocket.  This year, I tried to do 10 characters per day every single day.  Still no go.

And I finally finished my fishing achievement for Draenor to unlock level 3 Fishing Shack.  There's another mount that I'll have to spend another exorbit amount of grind to get it.
