Day 2959 - Battle for Azeroth Day 257

The Paladin reached rank 50 on the Heart of Azeroth, which is the current maximum, and I can stop farming Azerite on that character until the next patch.  I also helped out guild on doing Mythic+ and was rewarded with a good healing trinket.

Day 2958 - Battle for Azeroth Day 256

I finished up all of the Darkshore Warfront run for gear purpose.  For a change, my characters actually got good gears out of the experience.  The emissary is for iLevel 400 Azerite gear, again, too good to pass up.

I managed to sign up a Mythic +11Tol Dagor.  We actually managed to finish it on time, which bodes well for me next reset.

It turns out only my priest is locked out of the weekly events at normal Nighthold.  I managed to cycle all but that one characters through.  This makes 11/12 characters through.  Next week, I should have several of my character finishing the skipping quests done.

The daily emissary quest is for the iLevel 395 gears, which is too good for most of my characters to skip.  The Dark Shore Warfront also opens up for Alliance, which means the first run awards an iLevel 400 gears.  Also too good for all but my main character to pass up.

Day 2956 - Battle for Azeroth Day 254

I spend time to catch up on the world quests on all of the characters.  Some of them even got useful 390 gears off from the Stormsong emissary.

Day 2955 - Battle for Azeroth Day 253

I put the rest of my characters through The Nighthold shortcut quest.  Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I've done myself a disservice when I run the Paladin main through her shot at normal Gul'dan as the subsequent characters won't find him at all.  Oh well, at least we advance the quests a bit.

Day 2954 - Battle for Azeroth Day 252

We finished up the raid from the previous night, and then I have to bowed out of raiding for the night for work.  During that time, the guild managed to get the heroic version of the next raid done.  Oh well, it'll be there next week.

Day 2953 - Battle for Azeroth Day 251

We didn't have enough healer online to do the new raid instance in heroic mode.  So we went ahead and do the older raid and go up to the King.  3 more boss left.

Day 2952 - Battle for Azeroth Day 250

The Noblegarden holiday event came back.  This year there are 5 new Spring Circlet of 50 chocolate each.  I missed the Mystical Spring Bouquet from 3 patches back so I have to get it at 100 chocolate.  The new hearthstone is 250 chocolate.  I spend about 2 hours and managed to get all of that done, and I'm done with the holiday.

Afterward, I managed to get onto a Mythic +10 Waycrest Manor.  We didn't finished on time, but we did finished it, which is all I care about.

Day 2951 - Battle for Azeroth Day 249

I realize that the Paladin have actually unlock the skipping quest on two different difficulties in The Nighthold, giving her 2 attempts per week to get the attempt through.  I should also go and use that slot to give my other character to unlock as well, starting next week.

I spend quite a bit of gold getting the Death Knight through her Blacksmith profession to maximum skill level.  Afterward, I decided to at least look at what the patch 8.1.5 profession quest looks like beyond Engineering (which the Paladin already complete).  Blacksmith is for the most part rather simple.  Tailoring and Enchanting (I have 4 characters with this profession) looks to be on-par with the difficulty as well.  Thus far, I've completed the quests for Engineering, Blacksmith, Tailor, Enchanting and Inscription.  Of the professional tool, only Engineering is done and I hardly ever use that.  I'll be hard press to go and finish the other tools, seeing that they need heroic end of dungeon material to build.

For some reason the hunter is having problem getting past the dps check bosses in The Nighthold.  Though I do realize I can let other characters go through the one boss necessary for the zone skipping quest.

I finished 3 runs of The Nighthold.  Albeit, my main Paladin already can skipped to the end of the instance, while Demon Hunter and Shaman is still working towards that perk.  Demon Hunter is getting the same toy over and over again.

Day 2947 - Battle for Azeroth Day 245

We're still having attendance issue, with only about 12 people showing up.  Still we put in a full raiding session on learning the mechanics of the heroic raid boss.  Not enough healer on hand to make full use of our time.

Day 2946 - Battle for Azeroth Day 244

We got the new raids completed in normal mode.  I was hoping to get the new trinket, but got the weird legplates instead on a bonus roll.  We made a couple of more attempts at heroic mode, but it's much tougher.

Day 2944 - Battle for Azeroth Day 242

I ran into a problem with Rogue and the DPS check boss.  I have to ask a guild mate to help out to get past the bridge boss.  After that, I had no problem with Hunter and Druid.  Shadow Priest run into problem with 3rd boss.  Skipping that character and going with Warlock, she also ran into problem with the Bridge boss.  Finally, I managed to finish the instance with the Death Knight.  That's probably going to be my lineup for the time being.

The daily emissary is the 2000 gold.  I of course, have to do it on as many characters as possible.  I also got 500 Timewarped badges for the shadow priest in anticipation of the Warlord of Draenor Timewalk event in a couple of months to buy 2 mounts.

I managed to help out Guild run M+ playing dps role.  We did M+10 Temple and M+11 Motherload.  I did get a weapon and pants for Holy spec, so good runs.

Afterward, I also did the initial quest for the next raid.  At the end of the quest chain, I have the option of dispelling the Old God influence, or get a toy.  As I have 12 characters to run this with, I'll probably keep the tentacle on the Paladin and use another character to get the toy.

Day 2940 - Battle for Azeroth Day 238

On our second night of raiding, we actually got enough people to do raid.  We got all the way up to the King and I got a ring with socket from someone else who doesn't need it.  This does change the composition of the gears I'm now wearing (iLevel 408).

I also got the warrior through The Nighthold raid.  Attempt 31.

We didn't do the raid due to attendance issue again.  But I was able to squeeze in a Mythic 10, and run The Nighthold 3 times on different characters.  It turns out my Shaman is actually significantly more powerful than Demon Hunter at running these dungeon than I know.  Oh well.  At least the Shaman is now 1 week into getting the bypass quest done.

While I was not able to get a Mythic +10 before the weekly reset, the daily emissary quest is the 2k gold one, which I have to run on all characters.  And as I was finishing up for the night, Alliance regain Dark Shore, which opened up the World Boss there.  I managed to get all of the characters through to get their shot at iLevel 400 gears.

With the way timezone works, I managed to get back to Los Angeles at 7AM.  I have to get used to the timezone again.  I managed to get all of the characters to run through iLevel 385 world quest in hope of getting better weapons.  Some of them actually managed to get it.  Darkmoon Faire is also in town, so time to get all of the characters their profession level up.

We visited the ancestral graves of the family, something that a lot of the citizens of Taiwan is doing on this national holiday. Either this or tomorrow. So lots of walking in very poorly laid out pathway in very steep slope.

I'm still not well adjusted to the timezone, and I really don't want to be.

I managed to get 2 of the characters through the Dark Shore Warfront for their iLevel 400 gears. 3 down 9 to go.
