Day 2202 - Legion Day 2

I quickly grab the Retribution Paladin artifact weapon, Ashbringer and went about leveling the character.  I started in Azsuna, which has in its zone progression storyline, the Library and the recovery of one of the 5 Pillars of Creation.  The end zone dungeon is Eye of Azshara.  I finished the zone and move onto Highmountain, which brings back memory of Grizzly Hills.  Each zone is scaled to your current level and the quest reward are adjusted accordingly.  I finished the day about 1/2 done with Highmountain and level 104.

Day 2201 - Legion Day 1

The last day of the Warlords of Draenor I spend getting all of the character through Kazaak one last time.  Quite a few characters got their upgraded gear.  Perhaps I should've done this a bit earlier, but they should get replaced soon enough.

Day 2200 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 41

I managed to get the 4 Horde alts up to at least 60.  I did 3 more level on the hunter, but the speed of the experience boost is lessened tremendously.  I figure I have enough to cover the lower level quest for now.

Day 2198 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 39

New projects.  There are lots of quests that's faction locked.  So I'm going to level enough toons on the Horde faction to be able to unlock those quests.  Seeing that the Legion Invasion is now on all of the time, I've opted to create mage, druid, shaman and hunter to cover all possible options.  This is going to take a while.

Day 2197 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 38

I realized that I wasted at least 2 hours of farming in Bloodmyst Isle for the Silvermoon Tunic as part of a leather transmog set.  I even went and level a Blood Elf Demon Hunter on my PVE realm just so I have another character elsewhere to farm.  In all, I finally gotten the chest piece after all of that time wasted.  And then I realize the thing is Bind on Equip, which means I could've just buy it off auction house.  It wasn't even that expensive.  Oh well, live and learn.  At least I now have all 3 Silvermoon chest piece from that rare mob.  And I have 2 spare robe to sell.

Day 2195 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 36

And the next sets of Legion prepatch quest came with the raid week reset.  And I'm mighty disappointed at how short it was.  Short enough that I cycled all 12 of my characters through and still have time enough to go through my weekly disappointment with Ulduar.

I took at look at my monk's Windwalker spec weapon and decided that I can really use a slightly better set.  Since Legion invasion is now permanently on, I went ahead and just farm the ones outside of Ironforge and in Westfall.  With 4 invasions under my belt, I got 2 one hand ax and upgraded both of them twice which makes them slightly better than the 2 auto generated weapon that I started with.

Day 2193 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 34

With my Legion Invasion transmog run over, I decided to go ahead and crank through everyone's Broken Shore and Dalaran quest done.  It actually takes more time than I expected.  In between doing all of that, my rogue has been running Black Rock Depth for the first boss (Ring of Law)'s drop of Flarethorn.  It's the same model as Torture Poker, which is no longer available thanks to the Cataclysm remap of Scarlet Monastery.

I managed to finished up 3 Broken Shore and 6 Dalaran.

I'm starting to liquidate all of the Nethershard from Legion Invasion from characters that doesn't need anything from them.  I've gotten all of the armor transmog and still farming for that last elusive weapon transmog.  So the only thing worthwhile to buy are the battle pet, which will become limited item available.  Not sure how well it will sell in the future, but I'll have a bunch ready.

I went ahead and do the Legion Invasion transmog farming in earnest.  I've already go the agility staff, agility dagger, agility ax, two hander strength mace.  I'm missing bow, spell mace, spell sword and the one hander strength mace.

Using my Monk, I was able to acquire spell sword.  My hunter got the bow.  The Shadow Priest got the spell mace.  The only one I'm still missing is the one hander strength mace, which will only drop for Paladin, Warrior, and Death Knight.

I got a bit overboard and start transmog my main character, whom I haven't tampered with the look in over 3 years.  I still carried around the full Tier 6 transmog set all these years.  But with the advent of Legion transmog system, I'm free to do quite a few things.  Here's Dianora's Wonder Woman Transmog:

Not to be outdone, I also went ahead and transmog my Death Knight Ogiue to look somewhat Superman-ish:

Day 2186 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 27

Another long day of Legion Invasion farming.  So many invasion they kind of blend into each other.   I finally got all of the the available armor set down.  I'm still farming for bow, one hand agility sword, spell sword and mace.  I did get the two handed mace, agility staff, agility dagger, agility ax and glaive.  So many things to farm.  I'm stocking up on the limited time availability felbat pup.  They're going for 3 hundred on AH right now and should fetch higher price later.

Day 2182 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 23

With Legion invasion fully underway, I spend the night doing those events.  It takes me a bit of time to get a hang of how to do them, and I'm trying to do them as efficiently as possible.  4 of my characters are going to be doing them every chance I can, and they are the different armor class: Paladin, Mage, Shaman and Demon Hunter.  The Shaman and Demon Hunter can actually use gears from these event as each event usually drops 2 pieces of armor.  It's going to be a long farm.

Day 2181 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 22

Demon Hunters arrived in Azeroth.  And I spend a good chunk of the night marching her through Mardum.  Fortunately Tanktopgirl did managed to find the treasure box and loot Inquisitor's Menacing Eye, which is a Demon Hunter's version of  Oralius' Whispering Crystal.  I'm still going to pick up that crystal later on when I had more time.  But the time was mostly spend getting out of both Mardum and later Warden's Prison to complete the Demon Hunter starting quest chain.

Afterward, I spend more time going through the initial Warlord of Draenor quest to get through the Tanaan Jungle onto building my Garrison and Shipyard.  I was a bit impatient and burn through all of the Medallion of the Legion.  Surprisingly enough, the Demon Hunter does not have to do the initial Tanaan Jungle event quests to get to Alliance base in Tanaan, by the time I got there, the place is already build.  All of the medallion was to boost my reputation with the Alliance faction in Tanaan to buy Empowered Augment Rune.  I later spend a bit more gold and got my Shaman the same treatment.  I still haven't figure out what profession the Demon Hunter is going to have, most likely Skinning and Leatherworking.

And with all that, we still managed to pull through a raid, albeit a Mythic Siege of Orgrimmar so the guild master can tame Thok the Bloodthirsty.  I'll probably have to run that through my hunter to get one as well.  My paladin finally got the Mythic Siege achievement, 3 years after the fact.

Finally, during the night of gaming, I somehow hit a pressure point on my elbow.  I'm still feeling a bit numb, but during the night, the pain was so excruciating that I could get restful sleep.  I was seriously contemplating going to the emergency room to get it look at, but by the morning it was a bit better.

Day 2180 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 21

I figure out the way of cutting down the amount of time farming the instance for the Scarlet Tabard to buy the Ensemble: Chain of the Scarlet Crusade.  I'm about 40 runs in and still no drop.

Blackhand also refuse to drop Illusion: Mark of Blackhand with the 3 toons that I send through (Monk, Druid, Hunter).  I think I got 2 more weeks of this.

On a happier note, the night closes out when I finish the last 2 trainers for An Awfully Big Adventure achievement. that awards me the battle pet Trunks.  Before going to sleep, I power grind the pet with Draenor pet trainers to get it to level 25.

Day 2179 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 20

Darkmoon Fair returns, so I went on various characters to get toys to fill my collections.  I have a bit of question regarding the Noble outfit set, as my other character doesn't see the outfit yet.

With the help of a friend, I ran the last 2 bosses of Mogu'shan Vault 4 times (the number of character she has on this realm).  The dragon boss has a chance to drop the mount that I already have, but she could use it.  The last boss has the illusion we still need.  On the last character, it dropped and I win the roll.  We'll do this next week again.

Blizzard banned a lot of Overwatch cheaters for using aimbot and autoshot mods.  We're rewarded with DDoS attack.  I can just feel my frustration when Legion actually launch and the onslaught of both returning players and the inevitable DDoS attack that's going to come.

By the time we actually got around to get HFC raid going, my Shaman was stucked between Talador and Gorgrond.  So I went about tanking the whole instance on my Druid.  I did get the Titanforged version of the weapon I'm currently using, so I'll probably upgrade that.

Day 2173 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 14

Making good on the thought I had from the last post, I spend most of the night switching my bank alt.  It literally took me the whole night of work.  First I have to mail off EVERYTHING in my bag and my bank slot.  The stuff in the guild bank can stay as I just have to recreate the toon and the guild bank will eventually be transferred.

I found someone I used to be in the same guild and had one of his alt be the guild master for 5 minutes while I recreate the new guild bank toon Sayla.  Sayla used to be a gnome rogue.  The new Sayla is a Draenei Shaman.  I have a spare level 100 boost from buying the Legion expansion early and I use it on her.  After getting the guild back, I went about getting all of the stuff I mailed to the other toons back.  That took hours.

First, I have to spend 11 hexweave bag to equip my new bank alt toon's personal bag and bank slot.  I then go about redoing the guild bank, which hasn't really have any organization for over 8 years.  It was a lot of work.  I discovered that most of my bag slot are taken up by battle pets, which constitutes about 90% of my bank alt's stuff.  I can actually reclaim a lot of bag space by relearning a lot of the battle pets back into my collection while keeping only the unique pets in the bank slot.  I kept 2 pets per type in bank slot put any of the spillover into the guild bank, which would not show up in the Armory app.  This have led me to see just how many left shark and cinder pup that I have.  Perhaps I should dump them as they literally have almost no worth.

Well, I should be ready to do Molten Core and other instances for illusions.

Day 2172 - Legion Pre-Patch Day 13

I looked at the illusions and I've gotten most that can be gotten via reputation and enchanter created tomes.  I spend quite a bit of time going through LFR on my tanks to get the obtainable ones.

I got Mark of Bleeding Hollow from Kilrogg in HFC.  Mark of Shattered Hand from Kargath in Highmaul.  I have run Shadowmoon Burial Ground a couple of times to finally get Mark of the Shadowmoon illusion.

The rogue illusion of Poison did require a bit of grind as it's sold by Griftah from the fenced goods.  That took me a bit of time pickpocketing orcs in Tanaan Jungle.  But now that I know what to do, it should take too much more time to get the rest of his catalogue.

Of the ones that I can do by myself are: Razorice on my DK on Lich King, Blackrock from Blackhand in Blackrock Foundry (that I can queue up on LFR).   I'm going to have to queue up on legacy LFR to farm Sha of Fear and Will of the Emperor or find a group to do them.  I tried to do Will of the Emperor by myself and couldn't get that down by myself.

Finally there's Blade Ward that drops off from the 4 Titan Guardians.  I've been running Yogg-Saron on all of my toons for weeks now, but this one will need a bit of stepping back.  It would appear that I need to save another character through Ulduar 25 to go through all but the guardians and save it there.  Just to get the illusion before going back to Yogg farming.  Yogg himself also drops Blood Draining illusion, so I will be doing him as well.  It's just some more complications.
