Visions and Transmogs and more. Oh my!

Horrific Visions:

Masked Quartet
Masked Quartet

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.

What I will say about Horrific Visions is that gear matters. Corruptions matter more (good corruptions for your class, that is). A level 15 cloak is even more important. A nearly full Titan Research Archive is the key though (that Gift of the Titans, Elite Extermination, and Emergency Cranial Defibrillation give you a ton of breathing room).

Don’t be too cheap to use K’babs. Don’t be too cheap to use buff food (whether it’s HV-buff food or stat-buff food). Don’t be too cheap to use flasks. Don’t be too cheap to use potions on the bigger fights. Use Lust/Drums/[whatever the huter’s pet lust is called], because you can usually do this twice in a 5 zone clear. I say this because I chose to ignore these things at first and learned by doing that they make a big difference. Every little bit helps. Treat this like a mini-mythic or a micro-raid.

Transmog:

I’ve been farming a couple of sets semi-regularly. There’s been some progress in the past couple of resets (not sure if this progress is the past 2, 3, or 4 resets, because I don’t actively track my runs each week).

  • As mentioned above, I have 4 of the 5 Horrific Vision cosmetic masks. Should have the last one this week.
  • With the reputation buff active, I’ve been having toons get their Nightfallen rep up so that I can get the order hall sets for every class. Since the buff went active, I’ve gotten 2 more out of the way. At this point, I only have 5 of the 12 classes left to finish up (Mage, Monk, Paladin, Priest, and Warlock). While I’m not in a huge hurry to get these done, I do want to try and get the emissaries done for each of them while the reputation buff is active.
  • Completed the Paladin Judgement Armor set from BWL.
  • Missing the Lawbringer Armor shoulders from MC (it’s funny that I want these sets since I hardly play my paladins anymore, but I started them so I’ll finish them).
  • Completed the Hunter Dragonstalker Armor set from BWL.
  • Completed the Hunter Giantstalker Armor set from MC.
  • Now only need 3 pieces of the Shaman The Ten Storms set from BWL.
  • Completed the Shaman The Earthfury set from MC.
  • Completed the Shaman Regalia of Celestial Harmony (Mythic) from SoO.

With so many sets completed, I’m at a loss as to what to farm next. I know that I’m still going to be trying for the Shaman-only Kor’kron Dark Shaman Armor set. However, I’m going to save a lockout on another toon so that I can just farm that one encounter only. I’m also going to farm the purple Judgement Armor (Recolor) set on several plate wearers.

Animal Crossings:

I honestly didn’t expect to enjoy this game. I enjoyed watching my partner play it and at their request I hesitantly gave it a try. It is a cute bit of entertainment. The initial play is a bit of a time-sink. Once you get established on your island though, it’s a bit of maintenance as you have time. It’s very cute. I am enjoying the hell out of it and have only been playing for a couple of days.

Doom Eternal:

Still waiting on the Nintendo Switch port to be made available. In the meantime, I’m enjoying consuming the streams of folks playing it.  I can’t wait to play it myself.
