I got an idea to power level the shaman's enchanting.  Boy does that takes time.  I was below 175 when I started and some of the material (especially the low grade enchantment dusts from Cataclysm) are both expensive and low in volume.  Fortunately I learn to bypass some of it by using Warlord of Draenor material to get by.  By the end of the night, I was almost out of Cataclysm and onto Mist of Pandaria.

Day 2680 - Legion Day 480

Continuing on my rump through LFR, and I tried to get them in on non-healing/tanking spec as I can.  I only managed to put 2 characters through LFR, birthday dinner sort of short circuit the whole routine.  Here's what I had for dinner:

Day 2679 - Legion Day 479

After our adventures of doing progression on Mythic, I have the rest of the raid to myself.  So what do I do?  I crank off 6 characters through LFR and one normal Antorus with the guild.  It wasn't as fruitful as I'd hope, but I did get some gears.

Day 2678 - Legion Day 478

We one shot Argus and I got an upgraded neck piece out of the loot.  Afterward, we went and go into Mythic difficulty.  The World Breaker took us about an hour to learn and defeat and onward to the Hounds.  The best we got down with Hounds were 5% wipe, we will probably get them down next week.

Day 2677 - Legion Day 477

Skipping the normal difficulty, we did only heroic version this week onward.  We did get all the boss up to the last one with 1 or 2 wipes at most.  I didn't get any new tier pieces but did get an iLevel upgraded wrist.  The item from the weekly M+ chest is an iLevel 960 ring with bonus leech.  It's fine for Midnight farming.

Day 2676 - Legion Day 476

Didn't get the enchant illusion I farmed for this week, better luck next one.  Just for fun, before I call it a night, I got on my Paladin to tank LFR wing 2 for a shot at getting tier chest.  And after 2 different run (the first LFR I arrived at boss #3), I got the chest piece without using bonus roll.  Not really sure how useful that is, but at least I got 6 tier pieces across different levels.

Day 2675 - Legion Day 475

I put the remaining 4 characters through LFR and still none of them got any new tier loot yet.  Meanwhile about 1/2 of my characters have finish leveling their 6th order hall champions, which means the pace I've been putting my order hall missions will slow down.  For a while I was just using the quickest missions to level the characters, not caring what the reward is.  This really burns through resources on some of them.

After I'm done with LFR, I decided to queue up for Xavius in Emerald Nightmare.  I just want to get that last illusion.  While waiting for the queue, I ran old world contents to complete some of the transmog looks.

Since I'm on-call and really can't leave the house, I spend a whole lot more time in game than usual.  I managed to put through mage, warlock, shadow priest, rogue and demon hunter through LFR and all of them on DPS spec.  It's especially joyful for me to play shadow priest.  Lots of fun with her super haste in void form.  Some of them did get tier loot, but none of them are actually using the new loot yet.

Day 2673 - Legion Day 473

Whenever a good Emissary quest comes up, I have to postpone all of my usual plans and run all of the characters through.  With 12 characters, this is rather time consuming.

This time I managed to squeeze hunter through, no tier loot.  I also decided to run through all of the greater invasion world bosses.  I managed to score legendary loot for hunter, demon hunter and warrior.  Unfortunately I really cannot use them.

Day 2672 - Legion Day 472

With the guild raid done for the week and the Christmas holiday upon us, I don't foresee much in terms of guild activity.  So I went about to go through all of the useful emissary quests as well as leveling up the 6th order hall champions.  My monk's latest champion is a wee bit behind, so she's likely to have the last one still leveling.

The second wing of LFR opens up, and with it 2 more tier token bosses.  I gave my death knight a first go at it.  No tier loot.

Day 2671 - Legion Day 471

I tried to do a M+15 Seat of Triumvirate  prior to the raid.  Didn't work out and I missed the first boss the guild did in Heroic Antorus.  Still, we got through all of the bosses, including Argus, which gave me the Ahead of the Curve Antorus Raid and a shiny new flying mount.  I got a Legendary healing shoulder and bonus roll a legplate that I can't use yet.  Afterward, I did an M+16 Darkheart Thicket and though we didn't beat the clock, we did finish it.

Day 2670 - Legion Day 470

I had to drive my brother home from surgery, which made me missed the latter half of the normal run.  I did pickup the normal tier cloak towards the transmog set and got the Antoran Charhound from Felhounds of Sargeras.  It's a nice looking flying mount.

Day 2669 - Legion Day 469

I went to the dentist expecting to get a root canal on an inflamed tooth.  After consulting with a specialist, they all agree that it should just be removed as its lacking an opposing tooth on the gum.  So, off it went, cheaper procedure and hopefully shorter recovery.  I have to stop eating spicy food for a while though.

I also did not get into any M+Anything run as I run out of time.  The guild did made another run at Heroic Antorus raid, and we got Aggramar down.  I did get the heroic version of the helm via a coin roll.  So that makes 2 heroic tier piece out of 6.  We spend the rest of the raid time working on Argus, which requires a lot of practice.

The Christmas event have started and I cycle all of my characters through them.  As the Greench's doesn't have anything new on the the loot table (and I got the Rag illusion via BMAH), I decided to just do this once and skip out on the event entirely.  The WoD version of the event is a bit more contentious, as they didn't adjust Grumpus's health, so he's getting one shotted by Horde players in PVP realm.  They actually nerf the loot coming out of that event, so I'm only doing this once and skipping the rest of the event.

The only new stuff I this year that I can do right now is the new wild pet Globe Yetti.  Thankfully my mage saw it on her way to turn in the Ironforge quest and quickly tame it.  It's a solitary level 1 wild pet and I was very happy about getting it.

I decided to get the hidden appearance for Discipline Priest Artifact.  It takes a bit of time and even involves one dungeon run.  But it's so late in the expansion none of the books spawn are camped.  Here's what she looks like with her new book staff:

And before I turn in for the night, I open another exalted box, this one for Valajar, and it finally reward me with Valajar Stormwing.  Now 3 mounts down, 2 to go on Broke Isles (one more from Argus) and one toy from Wardens.

Day 2666 - Legion Day 466

The guild did an impromptu Heroic raid run.  We got a couple of pugs to go with us.  And we managed to get through to all of the previous bosses and got through Covens.  We got 30 minutes on Aggramar but he's much easier, mechanics compared to Covens.

Afterward, I got on the Shaman and tried to get the Elemental hidden artifact.  I actually got it on the first 'rare' boss down in Dalaran Sewer.  Here's what it looks like:

Still not done the M+15 for the week yet.  Looks like my 950 iLevel isn't good enough yet.  I did finish 2 of the 10 Family Familiar achieve by finishing Aquatic and Robotic ones.  The others are 2 away from finished.

Day 2664 - Legion Day 464

I managed to get 2 more Family Familiar trainers done.  Now, that I read the description, I don't actually have to do all of trainers, just complete 12 in each steps.

We finished up the raid by retreading all of the previous bosses we've killed quickly (High Command, Portal Keeper and Imonar).  We didn't waste much time in wiping and we managed to get through Varimathras in about 3 wipes.  After that, we spend the rest of the raid progressing on the Coven, which is significantly more difficult compared to the normal version.  Didn't get her down, but we should be in better position next week.

With one day of raiding in the raid week, we got through normal without much difficulty.  I did get the tier legplates to make it 4 piece.  I also got a iLevel 955 ring from the Mythic box.  Managed to knock out 2 more pet battle to bring Broken Isles up to 6, with 6 more to go.

Day 2662 - Legion Day 462

Last day of the raid week.  I couldn't find any M+15 dungeon run, so I decided to tank my own M+14 key.  Didn't go as well as I would hope for as we have very poor party composition, but at least we finish it.  None of the pet battle world quest was on my to do list for the achievement, so I didn't do any.  I finished up the night with the last remaining Timewalk dungeon run, the Shaman.  Note in the future if I ever decided to run this, do it much earlier in the week.

Day 2661 - Legion Day 461

One of the pet battle world quest was a repeat from the previous day, leaving 2 of them new.  One of them however is lock behind questline in Suramar.  Fortunately, most of my characters are now so over gear compared to the gear level those quests are supposed to be done at, and with the added flying, trivialize the difficulty even more.  Still, I have to get 8 of my characters through the locked content to get to that pet trainer in the Suramar zoo.

The guild decided to run a mix guild alts and random pugs through normal Antorus raid.  I got pull in on my Demon Hunter.  The only gear I got out of the run is a 930 cloak.

I got most of my characters through the Cataclysm Timewalk event, save 2.  Loot wise, it's not that spectacular.   Now that I'm doing the family pet battle event on Argus, I thought it's also time to do the same thing on Broken Isles.  Good thing that it's been out for over a year, so there are plenty of guides around to help me get those last 2 pets.

With the promise of 930 gears from the weekly Timewalk event, I try to get as many of my characters through the required 5 dungeons done as I can.  This week is the Cataclysm dungeons, which are some of the hardest dungeon the game ever had.  Some of my characters I can queue quickly due to being able to either tank or heal.  Some not.

We actually made good progress on heroic raid.  I got 2 pieces of loot, heroic tier glove and a holy relic.  I also run as much of LFR as time allow, squeezing in Argus pet battle in between.  In the midst of all this, I finally got Wild Dreamrunner from Dreamweaver faction.

One less mount to farm for.

Day 2656 - Legion Day 456

Our normal Antorus raid went much smoother this time as we blew pass most of the raid without wipe.  I got 3 piece of tier gear, which gave me some issues regarding gearing.  I have to stop using the legendary cloak and go back to using the belt as losing the 4 piece bonus from Tier 20 is really jarring.  I also got a best in slot legendary tanking helm.

More running old instances for transmog.  I put all of the characters that can heal through Emerald Nightmare's final boss in hope of getting the final Illusion.  Still nothing yet.  While doing that, the Shaman managed to snag the hidden appearance from the Eye of Azshara dungeon.  Here she is when she uses it.

Much later, I put my druid through Mythic Hellfire Citadel.  Definitely needs people who knows the mechanics.

I decided to do a bit of transmog farming.  The shadow priest was first and got the last remaining gear for tier 5 set.  I then went into Hall of Valor as healer.  After going to both heroic and normal HoV, I got the piece I needed and bought the other piece from the vendor.  And I got the hidden appearance for Holy artifact.

Next up is the warrior.  Fortunately I only need to run one run of Hall of Valor and gotten the shaft needed for her Fury Artifact.

Now I'm going to do tank druid and warrior hidden artifact.

Without raid, I went ahead and did both daily heroic on Paladin and doing Blackrock Foundry on mythic on both Paladin and Druid.  The Druid did get what I was farming for, the bug wing tier shoulder.  Unfortunately for me, farming Ulduar failed as I set the raid instance to the wrong difficulty.  Oh well, there's next week.

Here's the druid with bug wing.
