85 and Closing in on 525
I am still working through Uldum at the moment. I figure I'll finish out the zone, so I can get really close to that camel mount. I've had 4 successful runs through Vortex Pinnacle. I'll see about a write-up here later on. Lots of CC (banish/fear) and a few items that I'd like to screen shot.(edit: we'll see now if I get into heroics). In addition, I am loving the Desert Walker Sandals for exalted rep rewards. Currently honored, so hopefully not too much further...
Elk's quick-get wish list items:
- belt - Dreamless Belt (tailored)
- cape - Bloodthirsty Gladiator's Drape of Prowess (1250 Honor points)
- chest - Robes of Orsis (Uldum revered)-> Robes of Embalmed Darkness (justice points)
- feet - Desert Walker Sandals (Uldum exalted)
- hands - Bone Fever Gloves (Dragonmaw honored) -> Gloves of Painless Midnight (no hit) ( 1650 jp)
- legs - Flame Ascended Pantaloons(tailored)
- shoulders - Meadow Mantle (1650 JP)
- wrist -True Archaeologist's Bracers (Quest Reward) - just started this chain, looks like it ends in HoO.
Got my alchemy up to 507. I absolutely wanted that cool new alchemy trinket, so when I saw someone selling 200 volatile life for ~1000g on the AH, I bought it. Looking at Wow-Professions, the trick to get to 525 is flasks (which you'll only want one of these) then transmutes. BTW, a guildie stated that one of the low level transmutes is going for an easy 300 gold on our server. I don't remember which (Dream Emerald I think)?? Definitely a nice profit margin! As a side note, check out the comments for the Mix Master guild achievement. It appears that currently ilevel 85 flasks (i.e. Wrath flasks) are counting towards this achievement as well.
Just tested this on Flask of Pure Mojo and it counted for the achievement. It did indeed count both flasks made too moving the tracked achievement from 339 to 441. Then I made Flask of Frost Wyrmx4 due to my elixir master proc and it counted for four points. Seems like this is a huge boost to farming the achievement if you kept any wrath materials or just buy them cheep.
Flasks currently working(that shouldn't according to the achievement):
Flask of Endless rage
Flask of Pure Mojo
Flask of Frost Wyrm
Flask of Stoneblood
So here's to a few achievements over the weekend. Hopefully by Monday I'll have 85, Illustrious Cooking and Illustrious Alchemist. (scratches head) Now, how do I get back to Dalaran to get those Kirin'Tor head enchants again?
Cheers to another binary year!!
