Day 2261 - Legion Day 61

It turns out there are some more quest to do with attunement to the new Kara.  Unfortunately, the Hordes are not being cooperative.  As such, it took me a bit longer to complete them.

I also got started on getting the new PVP faction.  At the bare minimum, I'll get 4 new battle pet out of it.

Since patch 7.1 makes it possible for player to solo a single instance, I decided to run Siege of Orgrimmar.  Not knowing how hard it would be, I ran it at 10 normal.  Perhaps I can try Mythic difficulty later on.

Doing the attunement run on Warden's Vault was extremly painful, especially 3/5 of the people there haven't been there before.  The run through Black Rook's Hold was also painful.  Thankfully we got a component group for Violet Hold, so I'm now attuned to the place.

Day 2258 - Legion Day 58

Now that we're done with Heroic, I spend a bit of time on my DK farming Trial of the Crusader, Ulduar and ICC25 to get the rest of the pets for the next achievement.  Only got 2.

Day 2257 - Legion Day 57

We got Heroic Xavius done in 2 pulls, which is actually quite good, consider the patch issues we were having the previous night.  We then spend the rest of the evening doing the spider/bird boss.

For a change, my DPS wasn't terribad.

Day 2256 - Legion Day 56

Patch 7.1 day.  So many of the mod was not working that I was getting minuscule amount of FPS.  I end up getting alternative mod for unit frame and bars.  Lets hope that fixes the problem.

I did get some interesting gears from various sources (finishing up Heroic raid quest, weekly cache).  We also skipped the Tuesday normal and jump straight into Heroic.  With the amount of problem we have with mod induced lag, it's amazing that we got 5/7 bosses done.  Only spider/bird boss and Xavius left.

Day 2255 - Legion Day 55

Last day of patch 7.0.3.  We have it for over 3 months, 2 months worth of actual Legion content.

In other news, I actually managed to get through Withered training without it crash.

Day 2254 - Legion Day 54

I spend quite a bit of time finishing up the rest of my character's Artifacts.  Hunter, Druid and Priest.

I make sure that I was actually in the spec for each weapon, as some of the quest kind of expect the player to use.

I have some familiarity with Beast Master Hunter spec, having play it during the prepatch period.  I never got a hang of the new melee Survival Hunter, but I made a go at it.

Of Druid's 3 remaining spec, I'm ok with Guardian spec, so that went by painlessly.

I spend a bit of time try to figure out how to heal on the Restoration Druid and I got the Balance Druid's Scythe (the third characters to go through Karazhan's vault).

The final characters to get their other Artifact is the Shadow Priest.  I did Holy spec first and only died a couple of times.  Discipline Priest Artifact is the last of the 36 Artifact weapon I acquired and that went rather smoothly.

Of all of the quests, the one I most enjoy is Destruction Warlock and Outlaw Rogue.

And I spend 1300 Ancient Mana on the Withered Army training.  Second times in a roll, it crashed the game when I tried to turn in the quest.

I have 5 more characters to get their other Artifact weapon.  As my Paladin and Death Knight's experience have taught me, the later in the leveling process I do them in, the harder they will be.  The first of the remaining character to get their Artifact is the monk.

Just to make sure I'm actually doing this correctly, I went and bought the iLevel 740 weapon that's meant to cover this gap.  They've made the Artifact acquisition a bit more forgiving.  If you died somewhere in the process, the mob will still have the same amount of health, instead of healing up to full.

The Brewmaster Artifact has a unique look in that the unsheathed look has the staff resting on the character's shoulder instead of holding it one handed.

I've never heal on my Monk, so acquiring the healing staff for the monk is a wee bit challenging.

I closed out the night by getting the other 2 Artifact for the Rogue.  The Outlaw Artifact quest is quite fun, and I might actually want to level Outlaw Rogue for a change.

Day 2240 - Legion Day 40

Now that i have 4 characters in level 102, I decided to get the rest of their Artifacts at this relative level.  It'll only be harder at level 110.  I've already gotten the one for Demon Hunter, and gotten the second Artifact for the Shaman.  The one that I'm not used to for the Shaman is the healing spec.  I did most of that as Elemental Shaman and did the final part of it in Restoration.

I did Mage next and it's much harder than I have anticipated.  But I got them done none the less.

Finally, I did Warlock.  The Demonology quest was fine, but the Destruction was very fun.

I started try to force trigger the hidden artifact of the Death Knight's Unholy Artifact.  It isn't going as well as I've hoped for.  It will eventually come about.

Day 2238 - Legion Day 38

I spend a bit of time doing Warden world quest to reach revered status with that faction.  This granted me the achievement Broken Isles Diplomat.  After that, it's just one small stride and one goblin glide to finish explore Stormheim and getting Broken Isles Explorer.  That was the last step in Broken Isles Pathfinder Part One.  The bonus speed that comes with that doesn't do me much good with my Paladin who already have that.  However, the rest of my characters leveling should be fine.

More world quests and doing 3 Mythic+ dungeons.  I got a couple of pieces of gears.  None of them are upgrades, so I traded it with the others in the groups.

Day 2236 - Legion Day 36

We spend the night working on heroic Emerald Nightmare.  After 2.5 hours, we got Ursoc down.

Afterward, I did a couple of Suramar world quests and got to 20000/21000 reputation which unlocks the final ques chain for the story quest of the zone.  The final quest of this chain was in area full of illusion piercing guards.  My paladin died a bunch of times to get through that huddle.  Afterward, I finished the quest and the zone storyline.

I check and I'm 2 steps away from getting Legion Pathfinder Part 1, which will probably lead to unlocking flying.

Day 2235 - Legion Day 35

The emissary quest is Kirin Tor, and includes 2 puzzle quest, 1 flying quest and 1 racing quest.  Still no pet.

We finished up the normal Emerald Nightmare and I came away from it with 2 pieces of loot.  We also finished up the first boss in Heroic.  My dps is still sub optimal.

After finishing the emissary world quests on 2 toons, I decided to closed up the night by trying to fished up the final piece of the hidden appearance quest chain.  And 30 minutes later, I got what I came for.  Here's a screenshot of the short scenario for the appearance and the final look:

Walking in Shadows

Corrupted Ashbringer
In all, a good night of gaming.

Day 2234 - Legion Day 34

I got lucky in getting the Large Vile Slime to spawn while doing spot checking.  Unfortunately I have far less luck on fishing up the Shard of Darkness, and being on a PVP realm can make fishing difficult even with this stupid RNG.

After doing the Warden world quests for both of my 2 level 110, I did one instance of Mythic plus dungeon.  I also ran the the Death Knight through her Withered Army training, concentrating on getting as many of the upgrade box as I can and let the Dros kill me to end the instance encounter.

Withered Army training comes up again, and this time, I did have a complete run as well as getting all of the rest of the chest.  I should have 2 Berserker Withered exile on the next training, so I can open up the last remaining door.  Still no mount.

I spend the day getting Order Hall resources for the 2 level 110.  I also decided to finish the Order Hall Campaign.  Took a while to finally get it done, but the third relic slot on my Artifact finally got unlocked.
