The next WoW expansion is sneaking up on us, and preparations have already been taking place. With the pre-panda-patch that is going live on the 28th also comes the transition of currency, all of your valor will be downgraded to justice, and conquest to honor. The gear that used to be sold for valor will be sold for justice (and same with conquest). There will be no new tier of gear introduced until September when MOP goes live, so it’s going to be a bit of a waiting game. The pvp season will also end and I have to admit I did very poorly this run. I still managed to snag myself a few pieces at least but I missed a lot of AV weekends (my favorite).
In the mean time I’ve been working on achievements. I finally hit exalted with Tol Barad and the Baradin Wardens, which allowed me to purchase their companion, a cute little sea gull. I’m a few tokens short from picking up the mount, but when I have dailies available I’ll be working on getting more.
I’ve also been working on my Netherwing faction, eventually I can get some pretty neat dragon looking mounts. So far I’m only honored, and I defeated Captain Skyshatter which was a lot of fun but also VERY frustrating. It’s a race you participate in (a number of them) and the NPC flies around the sky dropping bombs or skulls or rocks at you that stun you (or damage you, or kill you etc). It took me a few tries but eventually I got there.
The guild is still moving along, we’re all basically waiting for MOP to come out and working on alts and old achievements in the mean time. I’m at 505 archaeology and am hoping to get it to 525 later on today. That will be the last profession I need to cap before the expansion goes live. Next I’ll start tracking down tradeskill recipes for tailoring and enchanting, I own most of them but there are still a few I would like to collect.
Still no mounts from the two Burning Crusade instances I run daily, but with a 4% and 1.8% chance at dropping, I don’t expect to see either of them for quite some time.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
