I Found Another Game!


No no, silly. Not a replacement for WoW. A nice little thing to play on the side, and when WoW is in maintenance. Having said that, I didn't make as much progress as I planned, because I was playing:


Hearthstone Enter screen
Having played the WoW TCG, it was very easy to pick up. It's sort of like a dumbed down WoW TCG with mechanics that are only possible online, and streamlined for online play. It's really fun. I'm trying to play without spending a penny on it, grinding gold and getting packs with gold. I've got about 6 decks made, and I'm playing Mage and Hunter against other players. I am also in the process of unlocking all the basic cards. I've done 6 classes so far.

Ok, enough of that. Back to WoW. I had a fun time on Beasty this week. First, I took some advice on how to get to Tanaan Jungle without a Level 3 Garrison, and she swam off the coast of Ashran and then got ported into the middle of the start area. Without quests though, it was just killing stuff, skinning (got a couple of Felblight) and getting treasures to try and get more GRs. She did manage to kill a couple of rares and get a couple of 650 gear pieces too. She only went back later in the week, once she got the garrison upgraded to level 3. Beasty eventually got enough to upgrade the Barn to Level 3, and is now starting to get Savage Blood. It's all starting to come together.

Oh, one other thing on Beasty. I crafted some Drums of Fury to level up Leatherworking. When I saw that these could sell for 30-40g each on the AH, I just bought tons of Raw Beast Hide, crafted tons of Drums of Fury, and got Leatherworking to 650 really quickly.

I also played my Alliance Hunter in Tanaan Jungle a bit, working on Rep for flying. One day, she got a Medialion of Legion from a follower mission. When I say that it gives 1200 rep with all factions (with the L3 Trading Post), I decided to stop the grinding, and just purchase 8 more Medalions to complete the Rep part. I hopped on Draeny, and purchased them for about 48K.

Tanaan Diplomat DONE

I just need the Treasure one for Flying now. I got on Flaying and got it to 90/100. I'll be ready at the drop of a hat to get to 100 when the Flying Patch is about to drop.

As you can see from the Achievements, I also dabbled in PvP this week. When looking at the Guild Achievements, it was clear I needed to get working on something, and PvP (Human slayer, Dwarf slayer etc.) seemed a good way to go. Priesty queued for a lot of Battlegrounds this weekend and got halfway to most of those guild achievements. She also got a 670 trinket from lockbox, and got quite a bit of honor.

On my other Characters, a couple made it to 60 (Shammy and Elfy). Shammy is now questing in Zangamarsh, and doing lots of dungeons and has made it to 62. Elfy had to go back to Wintersping to mine Thorium until she got Mining to 275. She's now ready to head to Outland. Others have done Swamp of Sorrows and have made it to Blasted Lands. Here's a common sight this week:
