Day 2529 - Legion Day 329

I was trying to figure out what the issue with second monitor going out is.  Tried a couple of things, and none of it pans out.  Will try for something else later.

The third wing of LFR opens up and it's time for some of the character to get their shot at new loot.  I did Shaman, Monk and Hunter through their shot.  The shaman managed to get her 4 sets, Monk got tier cloak and the hunter got nothing.

Day 2526 - Legion Day 326

I decided to do Blackrock Foundry again and got the Steel Has Been Bought, which gets me another garrison follower that I'm not going to use.  But it's one step on the meta achievement.

Day 2525 - Legion Day 325

Our Heroic progression is coming nicely.  We did world boss quest in heroic setting for some reason before moving onto Sisters of the Moon and the rest of the Heroic.  We got Fallen Avatar down for the first time ever and the only item of note I picked up is a Fire Relic for the Ashbringer.  An upgrade is an upgrade and I'm not complaining that hard.

Day 2524 - Legion Day 324

The guild actually ran the entire Tomb of Sargeras on normal difficulty to get those that are still missing tier sets their shot at it.  And then we run heroic up to Mistress Sassz'ine.  I didn't get anything useful out of that.

After the raid, I went over to Eye of Eternity and try farming for a specific one handed sword for transmog purpose.  Got it on the first try.  I also ran with a PUG to Mythical 12 Maw of Soul.  Painful, but still got it done.

Day 2523 - Legion Day 323

On the last day of the raid week, I still have an unused Mythic +11 keystone.  I tried to use it on the first day of the raid week, but the pug healer we picked up quit after failing the first boss.  In this case, I went in with the understanding that we probably will failed a bunch of times and just want to get the run in to get a shot at Legendary out of the box.  And boy did we failed a bunch of time, but we did finish it.

Day 2522 - Legion Day 322

On my weekend drive, I didn't follow the fork of the previous week and end up using a different route, Encinal Canyon Road.  The drive was actually more winding, and by the time I reach Pacific Coast Highway, I can sort of smell the break.  Well, here's the southbound drive:

Here's the return drive through the same route:

I noticed that Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King (the guitar axe) is up on Blackmarket Auction House, so I paid attention to it.  Since I want have this on my paladin, I have to buy it on the Paladin.  I pop in and out of the auction house on the paladin while paying attention to when the auction expires.

After I'm done with my usual daily quests, I kept an eye on the auction.  After a while, I win the bid with 1.6 million gold.  Is it worth the trouble?  Absolutely.

Day 2520 - Legion Day 320

With the raiding done, I went ahead and help out some guild member in their mythic 0 run.  Afterward, they help me out on me farming for The Black Hand 2 handed mace that goes very well with Blackrock transmog set.  I knew that some of the bosses isn't tuned for solo, but looking back, I think I may be able to solo it with enough DPS.  Fortunately for me, it dropped for me on my first attempt.  I may want to go back there later to collect transmog set.

Day 2519 - Legion Day 319

I was totally drained after donating blood.  After doing the minimum amount of work on the paladin main and some garrison tailoring work, I went to sleep.  Woke up 8 hours later.  Yeah, I can really use that sleep.

In preparation of the blood donation, I went out of my way not drinking the amount of coffee that I'm used to.  This really makes me drowsy throughout the day.  I've also not been having enough sleep for the past week.  Oh well, back on the grind.

Oh, this morning's drive:

We spend about one hour on The Desolate Host making good progression.  Hopefully we'll get him down next week.  I also got all of the characters through the Broken Shore World Boss.  Also nothing of note to report.

Day 2517 - Legion Day 317

We have a good night of raiding.  Now that we have the ability to skip bosses in normal mode, we skip them.  Did the first boss and the final 3 before moving on to the Heroic mode.  I finally got an upgraded bracer from heroic.  I also got a tanking legendary when my loot table was set to protection.  Guess I'm not doing that again.

Afterward, I join up with a group to try doing Mythic +14 Upper Kara.  Unfortunately, we got stuck at the 2nd boss and split.

Day 2516 - Legion Day 316

The Nether Disrupter was completed, so the Broken Shore World Boss is up.  It took me a bit of time to get all of my characters through.  Since the next day is the raid reset, I'll get another shot at her.

Meanwhile, most of my characters got their Command Center elite mission done.  They're now building the Mage Tower, perhaps I'll get another shot at doing those question.

Meanwhile the mage did the 2 dungeon pet battle.  Still nothing from Wailing Cavern, but I got the Tricorne rat.  Next week we should get the 3rd and last pet.

Day 2515 - Legion Day 315

I decided to drive to Pt. Mugu again, this time just doing the mountainous road.  Instead of doing it in the afternoon, I drove in the morning.  Last week, there were hardly any traffic on that road.  This week, lots of cyclists.  The drive was interesting and here's the video:

I managed to get all of my character through their run at LFR.  Not an exceptional sets of loots.  I also got them through the world boss.

I have been waiting to get my Demon Hunter through Time Walk Black Temple ever since the concept was revealed for patch 7.2.5.  Now that it's finally here, I had to wait through various bugs in the implementation of the concept.  Throughout the week, the instance was plagued with bugs, as the instance is locked in Mythic method, thus preventing replacement players.  By the weekend, most of those bugs are worked out.

I signed up as a tank, not that I'm that familiar with tanking on Demon Hunter.  By the end of the first boss, I realized something that hadn't been an issue with tanking raid instance in a long time.  Most of the bosses on Black Temple are immune to taunt, thus making tank transition a bit of a hassle.  We also have to deal with the usual LFR immaturity and brain dead players that simply cannot follow instruction.  Without those impedement, the raid actually ran rather well, all things consider.  However, the last boss was a significantly more difficult than the rest of the instance.   But when it's done, I got the transmog weapon set I wanted, and all is well.

Day 2513 - Legion Day 313

After i got my paladin main her emissary quest plus the dailies on Broken Shore, I decided to just do LFR for the alts.  I noticed that Kor'kron Juggernaut was on BMAH, so pooling my resources I send just over 2 million gold over to my rogue.  After setting up an alarm to remind myself for the inevitable auction battle, I came away with the mount.  It cost me 1.6 million gold, cheaper than the spider mount, but well worth the trouble, as i won't have to run the mythic version of Siege anymore.

Here's what my rogue did after winning it.

Day 2511 - Legion Day 311

We're now 7/9 Heroic ToS.  Pretty soon, we're probably just going to skip Normal mode and head straight into Heroic.  Of the tier bosses we face, I didn't get any of the tier loot tokens.  However, I did get an upgraded boots and a very powerful AoE trinket.

We got normal ToS done plus 3 bosses in the heroic version.  I spend 2 bonus roll coins and got a DPS trinket that's worse than what I'm currently using and a ring I don't need.  I did loot roll an upgraded belt and a normal tier leg.  In all, a good night.

Day 2509 - Legion Day 309

On the last day of the raid week, I finished up the weekly pet dungeon challenge.  Still no rare pet from Wailing Cavern yet, and I'm 2 weeks away from finishing up the Deadmines pets.

Just for the hell of it, I took the paladin (who is the highest geared character) and ran through Throne of Thunder on Heroic 25 difficulty.  There are still one shot mechanics (snails) in the raid instance, but the actual boss isn't too bad.  The only one that would've give me headache (the robot boss) I was able to completely by-pass it on the paladin.

Afterward, I decided to upgrade the weapons of most of my characters.  Hunter and Monk was able to complete their upgrade with ease, many of the other character are not as lucky.  Druid was lagging far behind because she has more weapons to upgrade than everyone else.

I decided to do another drive up PCH.  This time I took an alternative route.  I made as far north as Point Mugu on the Ventura County border.  The video I decided to post is the drive back where I took yet another different route.  Here's the interesting part of the drive:

Didn't do much on the WoW front, but I'm really looking forward to the LFR Black Temple next week.

On the hottest day of the year, my cousin scheduled his wedding out in the afternoon.  The actual ceremony was mercifully short as more people would've passed out in the sun.  We got home in time to catch the valley wide power outage.  It's not been a good day.

I finished up most of the LFR before heading out to the ceremony.  The druid is now using 2 sets ToS tier gear.  The way her gears is setup, I'm not using Tier 19 at all.

Day 2504 - Legion Day 304

We got 2 newer heroic boss down.  Spend the first hour working on Mistress Sassz'ine.  I bonus rolled the heroic version of her trinket.  Second hour was on Sisters of the Moon, which is a fine execution check.  I got nothing from the bonus roll, and I got a fire relic from trade off roll.  So I'm now without any bonus roll.

Afterward, I went ahead and do the world quests and darkmoon faire.  It's surprising how much more powerful the paladin is compared to 2 weeks ago.

On the last day of raid week, I spend most of the time just doing world quest and now adding Darkmoon Faire into my rotation.  Since I really don't have the time to level my characters' professions, I'm reduced to using the faire to complete them.

I also need to start grind the Darkmoon Faire prize tickets.  I'll need 1000 of them to buy one mount.

I finished up the LFR for the rest of my characters, even Paladin who didn't get a proper shot in.  Lo and behold she got the dps ring for Retribution Paladin.

While finishing up LFR on the Death Knight, I noticed that I've already gotten the requirement of the Unholy Artifact hidden appearance done.  After I was done with LFR instance, I flew over to Icecrown Citadel and got into the hidden trapdoor.  The 'boss' wasn't too bad, but all of the mobs there had very quick respawn rate.  Just to kicks, I went ahead and clear the rest of the instance and got an extra battle pet to sell.
