… a.k.a. “How much time did I waste unnecessarily?”
There are some bits and pieces of the game that bring out the completionist in me. Legion brought out a few of them. Allied-races, class halls, artifacts, class mounts, and… class hall armor sets.
They’ve figured out how to do backpacks. I think it’s about time they give us quiver mogs.
Fourth of July weekend in the US-of-A, a 3-day weekend. I should have been enjoying the lull between expansions, and I was. It just was not in WoW. Instead, I was enjoying my time in Animal Crossings: New Horizons (ACNH). I just don’t have any desire to log in to WoW currently. Sure, if the wild hair crawls up the orifice, I can do some portion of my weekly chores:
This reset, I did 2 of these things and added a tame of Loque’nahak on my gnome hunter along with an emissary that gave a minor gear upgrade to the Worgen DK. The rest of my time was spent playing ACNH. I saw that yesterday was the last day for the Kirin Tor emissary (meaning an easy 750 boost to Nightfallen rep) and I just didn’t want to bother. I see that today is the last day of the Nightfallen emissary (which usually nets me over 2K Nighfallen rep between the rep from the emissary and the rep from the WQs themselves) and I’m not sure I want to bother with that either. Wherein I whine and moan my distaste for the current iteration of things…..
Over the weekend, I was able to pull off a solo 4-mask Horrific Vision of Orgrimmar. I will say the Faceless Mask of the Long Night and Faceless Mask of the Daredevil are a horrible combination. Individually, those 2 masks are no big deal. Either of those 2 masks in conjunction with the remaining 3 are sweat-inducing, but still quite manageable. Those 2 together are far worse than any 3-mask or 4-mask combination that doesn’t pair them.
My run included the following masks:
This week, I plan on doing a run with the Faceless Mask of the Daredevil on to get the last transmog item.
This started out as a quick comment on WrathOfKublaKhan’s post The Shadowlands Prep and turned into a wall of text that I apparently wanted to get out. Since it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, I figured I’d use it as a post. So here goes.
Patch 8.3 is incredibly alt-friendly. There I said it. I know I said before that I am only doing the cloak quest line on 1 toon per faction and that’s it. Well, I was wrong. I eat those words. I won’t even put any hot sauce on them to make them taste better. I was wrong. Gearing, leveling your necklace, and getting essences is as close to a cake walk as Blizzard will ever allow. I’m working on my 7th cloak.
I make it a point to pay attention to the WoWHead page titles. Every time you refresh the page, the title of the page updates. I’ve seen a number of them multiple times and they tend to make me smile. This one had me giggling like a fool.
Woot! I did it. Completed all 5 zones and acquired my first mask. I have also earned enough mementos for Gift of the Titans. Now it’s time to earn those last 4 points on the other side of rank 2 and that last 3 points on the other side of the tier above Gift of the Titans. Then, I’ll be able to buy that sick backpack mog that I have been eyeing since Recruit-A-Friend introduced them to us.
I didn’t think much about the masks previously. I’d just kind of figured that once I hit tier 15 (if I hit tier 15) cloak that I’d be done with it all and not care about pushing it any further. Now, I’m seriously thinking about pushing for them.
…and suddenly, I’m feeling the urge to put in the time on my alts again.
I’ve been fairly lax in running visions lately. Reasons, stuff, and real life… blah… blah… blah. I was running a vision to get my last 2 mid-zone items to bring my cloak to level 11 and my poor little kitty cat got his claw stuck in the curtains next to me (right as I’d pulled most of the dwarven district into a single pull). *sigh* Sadly, it took me 2 visions to get those last 2 pages of fear and flesh because of the distraction. Still, I got there.
