Day 3140 - Battle for Azeroth Day 438

The farming for Felsteel Annihilator went faster than I anticipated, only 32 attempts.   Not even 1/8 way through the attuning for the instance skip I got the mount drop on the Monk.  Here's what it looks like

Day 3139 - Battle for Azeroth Day 437

I managed to put 1/2 of my characters through Mythic Hellfire Citadel.  28 runs, no mount yet.  In about 8 weeks, all of them should be able to skip right through to the instance quickly.

Day 3138 - Battle for Azeroth Day 436

Since I have Freehold M+9 key, I might as well get another shot at finishing it for another shot at the bird mount.  Didn't get it.  Now that the Paladin's Hearth of Azeroth have hit its cap for this patch, all of the emissary quest that rewards AP converts to gold, which is a good source of it for now.

On other front, I finished another 5 characters on their run towards farming Hellfire Citadel shortcut.  I was surprised that the hunter already have the first leg completed.  Now only the Death Knight haven't started it yet.  I found that the early section requires good consistent AoE, and surprisingly enough, the Outlaw Rogue is the one that's most lacking.

Day 3137 - Battle for Azeroth Day 435

And on the day after Disc of Norgannon quest was in town, I was able to loot the last vinyl off from the elite Data Anomaly <Crowd Pummeler 9-60>.  After getting the achievement, I got Keys to the Model W waiting for me in the mailbox.

Here is Dianora on her monocycle.

Now I have 2 more achievement left on Mechagon, and I'm done with the place.

I also tank my way through the 7th Mythic Freehold this week.  Albeit, this time for the weekly M+10 completeness.  We even managed to finish it on time.

The Disc of Norgannon quest came back to Mechagon island again, a mere days after the previous one.  I went about and make sure I pick up the remaining 3 quest tokens to summon the elite Data Anomaly mobs.

I'm on the mend from the cold, now in the coughing phase of the disease.

I got the common cold that's going around.  It's now in the chest congestion state.

In Warcraft side, I'm still farming for the last vinyl and the quest that started it is in town.  I didn't get it of course.

Day 3132 - Battle for Azeroth Day 430

I got another tanking boot from the weekly box.  I've also gotten enough currency to buy the iLevel 445 shoulder that also goes towards tanking set.  The daily emissary is one of the rare weapon.  So I went ahead and did 11/12 characters (my paladin was busy in Mechagon).  Only the mage got an upgrade.

I managed to complete a +10 Freehold on the paladin.  Didn't get useful gears out of my own luck, but thankfully the monk tank doesn't need the ring he won, so now I have a much better dps ring.

Day 3130 - Battle for Azeroth Day 428

I managed to finish the secret green painted fish and then hop onto to the future version of Mechagon to finish that achievement.  The remaining fish were not as challenging (the paint only last 3 minutes and have to be reapply).  But the last sets of secret fish (common) took me well over 2 hours in Outland Nagrand floating island.  But it's well worth the trouble.

I realized that I don't have to turn in the quest for the Elite Data Anomaly quest, I just need it to summon the boss.  Hopefully I can continue to summon it to get the drops I need.

And I somehow did Mythic +7 twice on the monk due to the fact I selected the wrong spec.  However, both went through just fine.

After burning the 2nd Elite Data Anomaly disc without useful drop, I decided to complete the achievement Secret Fish and Where to Find Them, which will aware an interesting toy, Hyper-Compressed Ocean.  The toy summons a water globe for 15 minutes that acts like a fishing spawn point.  Too bad it has an hour of cooldown.  I finished the prerequisite a couple of weeks ago, but the task seem daunting back then.  But now that my meta completeness have hit a wall with the last Mechagon achievement, I might as well do them.

I started in Broken Shore Dalaran and finish both that one as well as the ones that can only be done while dead.  Before the night was out, I finished up Kul Tiras, Pandaren and Thunder Island.  The night only fish was also caught in the midst of doing those.  Unfortunately I hit a wall with the green painted fish and have to call it a night.  Still, I got about 1/2 of the fish.

Day 3128 - Battle for Azeroth Day 426

I saved all 3 of the Elite Data Anomaly quest token to be use later to summon the Elite bosses that can only be looted once per day.  Since they're the only one that can drop the vinyl, I might as well keep them around.  I used up the first one today, no vinyl.

Day 3127 - Battle for Azeroth Day 425

The Data Anomaly came to Mechagon Island, and I was able to knock out Blue Spraybot achievement out of the way.  Unfortunately, it would appear that I can only loot off from the Elite summon once per day.  I've saved the summon quest item for the next time they show up.  So I'm down to farming Steel Singer until the vinyl drops.

Day 3124 - Battle for Azeroth Day 422

I got the Junkyard Machinist meta achievement done.  Now, only Blue Spraybot blueprints and Battle of Gnomeregan vinyl left for the whole meta achievement.  I might want to convert the rest of the spare parts into rep token that my alts can use to push them to revered.  I also found the Mechagon variant of Pepe, which comes in handy as Chromie visited the island today, and I was able to get a free pass to the alt time to get the pattern.

Day 3123 - Battle for Azeroth Day 421

It turns out, the meta for Mecha-Done is simpler than I realized.  The 1000 number in the previous post are for the Junkyard Tinkmaster and the title.  I can go after that later.

The historians show up, and I managed to finished the Outside Influences by finishing all of the possible quest for the visitors to the island.  That means, the remaining item for the wheel mount is 71/100 project completion, blue spraybot and the last gramophone.  I've been doing the Crazed Trogged and the Siren every day without their respective drop.  On the gramophone side, if the proper quest shows up on the island, I should be able to grind for it.

After spend a whole week trying to get the Mecha-Done meta, I'm still waiting for the history quest to show up.  I'm still missing the last gramophone disc.  The blue spray bot still eludes me.  And I'm not even close to finishing up on both the craft (443/1000), complete construction (59/100) or contribution (328/1000).  This will take a long time.

I had to pick up family member from LAX at the rush hour.  The drive was horrendous, but the air condition for both the Valley and Basin are the worst I've seen in years due to the brush fires all around.

I also realized that I haven't gotten the Monthly professional quests done at Darkmoon Faire.  That allows me to advance some of my lesser used profession in the previous expansion to advance.

The weekly chest gave the paladin a tanking ring.  I also managed to finished 2 of the Mythic 0 dungeons for the weekly event.  I of course picked the ones with a chance to drop mount.

I did a concerted effort at farming spare parts.  It is amazingly boring, but in between, I knocked out 1 more meta.  This will be a fairly long grind.

Another mount shows up on the Black Market Auction House, and of course, I got out bid.

I spend a bit of time on Mechagon, and just trying to figure out how much material I need to complete the Meta Achievement.  I'm almost done with the construction project, but only 1/4 way done with the crafting.  This means I'll be farming for a while.

With one meta achievement out of the way, I decided to look at what I'm missing for Mechagon Island.  Turns out, I got a lot of work left.  Well, looks like I'm parking my Paladin there for the forseeable future.

I also decided to catched up on the rest of the characters' Essence upgrade.  I noticed that the default one can be upgraded to rank 3 for all of them, and I even spend time to get to level 65, which unlocks the 2nd minor slot.  Alast, I was only able to go up to the Rogue.  5 more characters to go.

After seeing some more people completing the hardest Arcane Pylon challenge in Nazjatar, I decided to give it another shot.  After about 6 more attempts, I got it down, albeit, with less than a quarter of energy left.  With that out of the way, I knock out the remaining Arcane Pylon, which are nowhere near as difficult.

The Scrying Stone achievement would've been difficult, except someone published a list of where everything is at, and I have flying.  I knocked out the remaining 60 with just 4 stones used.

I saved an easy achievement for the end, Terror of the Tadpoles, which allows me to know precicely when I got the achievement done.  In all, with the exception of 2 'rare' mob that have to be spawned (Banescale the Pack Father and Anemonar) and the Arcane Pylon in Coldlight Cavern, it just takes time.  The Coldlight Cavern Arcane Pylon stalled me for 2 weeks.  Here's what it looks like:

There's a quest from 8.1.5 in Stormsong Valley that phases the character if you haven't finish the quest chain.  Unfortunately, that means if there's a BeeEvent! right next to it, I won't see it either.  I spend a good chunk of the evening just finishing up that quest chain so next time there's an event there, I can join the group.

I also decided to do some jelly farming.  And now that the price have dropped enough, I was able to sell them.  60k from the previous day's proceed.
