Day 2589 - Legion Day 389

Continuing the Argus story quest on my alts.  As expected, the Hunter didn't have much issue.  I found the Druid to be relative easy as well.  Shadow Priest had more problem than I anticipated.  I guess her gears are a bit on the low end.

Day 2588 - Legion Day 388

I decided to take it easy and just work on cycling the rest of my characters through the greater invasion point.  Some of them got very good gear, some of them got gears on the same slot as Legendary.  But a good night nonetheless.

Day 2587 - Legion Day 387

We didn't have enough people on for normal run, so I went with guild member for some M+10.  After running 2 of those, we decided to brave M+11 new dungeon instance.  It's definitely a learning experience.  We didn't make the timer, not even close.  But we did have good experience.

Day 2586 - Legion Day 386

We're running short handed but still managed to completed the entire Heroic Tomb of Sargeras, running 2 healer for all but the last boss.  Our nominal healer had issue with her keyboard and was out for most of the night.  I spend 4 bonus coin and didn't get anything I want.  The weekly Greater Invasion didn't give me anything I want, but the weekly Mythic+ chest did give me a iLevel 935 ring with socket.  That ring goes into my normal gear set.

After the raid, I decided to start my first weekly run of Midnight farming run whereby I send my tank capable character through 2 bosses in Return to Karazhan.  I need to finish the Opera event in order to get to Attuneman to get a shot at Midnight.  The entire run takes about 30 minutes.  No mount.

Day 2585 - Legion Day 385

After doing the emissary quest, which includes reputation token for the faction I was working toward, Argussian Reach, I got exalted with that faction.  With that, I got 6 mounts out of the achievement.  I really need to get the rest of my characters at least up to revered so they can also get the flightmaster whistle upgrade.

I also got the rogue done with the Argus quests on Rogue, next up, Hunter.

As this is the end of the raid week, I got on my mage to go to Wailing Cavern again.  Week 11, still no Everliving Spore.

Day 2584 - Legion Day 384

I was going through my battle pet journal and noticed that I'm missing some pets that I can purchase already.  I bought the humanoid pet Tylarr Gronnden and level him to 25 immediately.  After I got the monk done, the next character to be leveled is Monk.  The monk run through mobs surprisingly easy.  After doing the Monk, Rogue is the next one on the slate.

With Monk's self heal, she was quite self resilient.  Rogue have 1 heal on a 30 second cooldown.  I had to use vanish more than I like....

Taking it a bit of a break from 100% rare boss farming, I limited myself to just running around and doing the world quest and the summonable bosses that I have material for.  Still nothing.

Now that I got all 4 mounts from the eggs, I'm not farming the egg dropping rare boss as I had before.  Now I'm farming brewfest tokens to finish up the transmog set.  It'll take a while.

Day 2580 - Legion Day 380

Brewfest comes up.  I was kinda surprised that though I've once own all of the transmog items, I haven't learn any of them.  So I'm going to split up my characters and do divide and conquer on all of the various pieces of gears to get.  There's no new toy or pets, so I don't need to do that.

The guild ran an alt night on normal Tomb, and we managed to get it down.  My warlock got 1 normal tier shoulder out of 7 bonus coin roll.

Day 2579 - Legion Day 379

The first thing I check out on the first day of the raid week was the weekly Mythic bonus box.  No legendary ring, but I did get a very good iLevel 950 boots that supersedes all my other boot other than the speed Legendary.  I then came in on the 3rd boss in the heroic raid and got the class ring.  Now it may not be the best optimized, but it sure was fun using it.  It's also useful for the tanking spec.

We actually managed to finish the heroic raid in one night.  Other than the class ring, I also got a direct upgrade in one of the relic.  I started the night somewhere at iLevel 929 and ended the night at 935.

Day 2578 - Legion Day 378

One of the more pointless and unpredictable grind in Legion is finally over.  Either I didn't have enough Curious Coin or the vendor isn't selling the mount.  But after having over 150 of the coins, the vendor finally decided to sell it.  It's not much of a mount, but a mount is a mount.

Oh, the second mount from egg drop hatched.  2 more plus one from the actual mana ray rare to go.

Day 2577 - Legion Day 377

I decided to bring the rest of my alts through Argus storyline quest.  At least they reward good amount of artifact power and some gear.  Going through all of the storyline quest guarantee at least 1 relinquished gear token.  With that in mind, I went with shaman and mage.  With shaman, I played mostly in enhancement spec, switching over to elemental during the invasion point scenario.  It worked well enough that I switch over to restoration spec while queueing up for the new dungeon to finish the whole storyline.

The mage has always been the glass cannon of my troops of alts.  I went in as fire spec and stay with that spec.  By the time I finish the storyline quest, it was already late, and I didn't have luck in getting into the dungeon to completely finish the story.

In between doing these two alts, I decided to queue up the main as a healer in LFR.  After a couple of wipes, one of the tank change spec to dps and we cannot get another tank to enter the queue as the system still insisted that there are 2 tanks.  I switch over to tank spec and finish the run for my weekly box from the instance.  Didn't get anything useful.

Day 2573 - Legion Day 373

We got Kil'Jaeden down without much issues.  No notable loot.

Blizzcon 2017 virtual ticket went on sale, and the digital goodie was faction specific two seater mount.  I think the Alliance made out better this round.

Meanwhile, I hit exalted with the Army of the Light faction and got the permanent augment rune as well as the Lightforge Warframe mount.  Too bad the mount itself requires exalted reputation to use, so none of my alts can use it yet.

After the raid, I managed to complete the story quest.  That is, I managed to unlock all of the world quest as well as finish the new dungeon on both heroic and mythic difficulty.  Now I just have to knock out my M+10 dungeon and I can start leveling my alts again.

With the third week of patch 7.3 brought about 15 iLevel upgrade, the raid ran rather smoothly.  Once again, we got everything except the last boss done by the last 30 minutes.  We got some quality attempts at him.

Once again, no loots across the board on everything.

Day 2570 - Legion Day 370

Well, that's 6 hours of my life I'm not getting back.  I restarted the whole maze a couple of times. Even with the aid of a tracking addon, the maze double wrapped around itself as well as having room that randomly teleported to another location.  I resorted to using pencil and paper to help map out the routes that I haven't already explored.  This is what the hand drawn map looks like:

Not quite legible, but it's mainly used as a guide.  All that time spend, and here's what the mount looks like on my mage that did the farming:

Just before going to bed, one of the Fel Spotted Egg cracked and hatched.  Fortunately for me, it's one of the 4 mounts, Darkspore Mana Ray.  I got a couple of more eggs lined up to be hatched.

Here's what it looks like:

After I did the daily world quest, I went and farm for Sightless Eye in Underbelly.  And as soon as I got 20 thousand of that currency, I went and learn it.  This is how the mount looks like.

Too bad this mount does not work in Underbelly, and I have to use the summon harness instead.  While we're on mount farming, I also started the Lucid Nightmare mount farming.  The process have been discovered, but I was having difficulty from step one with turning the light bulb in Uldum.  The second step in AQ40 wasn't easier.  Fortunately the step that stump everyone for 24 hours was easily circumvented with the purchase of the necessary head gear from the auction house.  Gnomeregan step is difficult only in finding the puzzle panel.  The untangle game is actually easier than the other puzzle.

This brings me to the final step, the Endless Halls.  I gave it about 90 minutes before calling it a night and trying it with a fresher mind.

I tried to farm for the Ratstallion mount again, but the Underbelly is full up on dedicated PVP players.  After dying rather quickly a couple of times, I decided to do something else.  I got onto a M+10 Lower Kara.  Unfortunately the lag is so severe that I spend more time dying than alive.  Hopefully it's enough for the weekly chest.

Day 2567 - Legion Day 367

Another mount (#404 on Paladin) done.  Now I don't have to grind out Darkmoon Faire on all of my characters, until they introduces something interesting in the future.  Here's how Dianora looks on one.

And I finished furnished out Vindicaar with the achievement of Locked and Loaded.  For the most part, I'm running around with the original Light's Judgement, but it's nice to have options.  No raid, so I just run around finish as much of the Argus content as I can.  I decided to change the shoulder enchant to drop Argus currency.  Thus far, no drop yet.

Oh, Blizzard finally spawn Tarlna the Eternal, which allows me to finished the Pepe whistle achievement.  Now I can wear the normal version of that bird.

Unlike the stellar performance of previous raid night, this one was off from the start.  Our heart just wasn't in it and we're not able to get Kil'Jaeden down this week.  On another front, I'm 48 tickets away from getting the zeppelin and I got the third Argus zone quests done.

With one week of Argus behind us, our gear really gets upgrade and we managed to go through all of the boss except the last one in 3/4 of the time.  Thus we got 30 minutes of attempts at Kil'Jaeden.   We didn't managed to do that, but we did pretty well all things considered.  No real loot.

The third zone in Argus opens, and I got about 1/2 of the quest done.

Day 2564 - Legion Day 364

On the last raid day of the week, I help out a guild mate and her somewhat undergeared alts through some mythic and mythic+.  Towards the end of the night, I decided to knock out another achievement for another mount.  The Underbelly Tycoon requires acquisition of 20000 sightless eye, a pvp token from the Underbelly of Dalaran.  I went in the farm with about 10k already acquired via various means.  And for about 2-3 hours, I managed to farmed 6k more.  I presume I can get this done before the next raid week during the downtime when I've exhausted doing everything else.

In between doing the Argus World Boss farming and Darkmoon Faire, I got my Mythic+ done.  Albeit, we didn't exactly finish the reconstituted Mythic +11 which is equivalent to the +16 from the old instance in time.  Hopefully I'll get credit for the weekly loot box.

The Darkmoon Faire is up again, and by my calculation, I don't think I can get to the 1000 ticket for the zeppelin mount this month.  I'll try my best, but I have my doubt.  After exhausting all of my character's turn at the fair and mailing the box to  my main, I decided to complete Raiding with Leashes V.  The big stickler point was of course Spine of Deathwing.  I end up having my mage be the raid id holder and sending my characters through doing that encounter.  After 8-9 tries, my character managed to get the pet from there.  And I've already gotten 3 pets from Deathwing.

At the end of a very long night, I decided to just buy the remaining pets and call it a day.

After some more group farming of intact demon eye, I got the amount of eye necessary to get the mount.  In the midst of doing all of the boss from Argus, I managed to create effigy to summon the boss that could drop Uuna's Doll, a battle pet.  Still haven't drop for me yet.

So I decided to start farming Intact Demon Eye for some toys and pet.  It took me a couple of tries to get it actually going.  Doing this solo is definitely not recommended.  It wasn't until the end of the night before I realized that I haven't use one of the ability for Argus that was unlocked.  Oh well.  I did picked up the permanent buff token so I don't have to go and find that initial item again.

In the midst of doing that demon farming, I cross the threshold of 2000 non-trivial demon killed on Argus and gets a mount.  Screenshot will be from tomorrow.
