Feeling Lucky - September's Update

I ended the month of September by finishing off the legendary quest chain for Kahdgar. I now have my ring. It was a glorious time. I needed 3 more tomes, dropped into LFR Halls of Blood. Each of the three bosses dropped a tome. Lucky!? I now have my second statue in my garrison, following the 50,000 apexis crystal statue I put up all over the place.

I've completed my stable dailies and have all of the mounts. Rebuilt that building now as a War Mill so I can get more follower upgrades. I am now getting the level 675 garrison missions weekly and would LOVE to get one of the 'normal HFC' drops that these missions provide. Sadly, I only have 1 follower who even qualifies. So, most of the time my success rate is around 83-85%.

Speaking of HFC, I can agree with Grumpy about the lack of awesome gear drops. Oh, I've gotten some stuff, but then I've also gotten a lot of gold and those darn Intellect token "participation" trophy. Sadly, I keep getting the same drops over and over again. In fact, I now have 3 pairs of Felfume Pantaloons. What I really want, is a 4th piece of the lfr tier gear. I have shoulders in my bags now, but AMR keeps insisting that my current gear is better.

On the other hand, I think I'm finally geared enough to start pugging normal raids. /shrug. i686/681 equipped. Looking at the drops from Archimonde, I see that the 'fel sludge' only drops from in Normal -> and I think it would be awesome to start off Legion with a 750+ ring..

Completing Pathfinder was uneventful. I've only been back to Tannan a few times to work on questing since then. Oh, look, I could grind this ... queue popped!


Played some Witcher 3. Haven't gotten very far (about to meet the king). Friend suggested that since I haven't played 1 or 2, that I should pause and read some of the background. I've been exploring the Wiki a little and a BUNCH of videos on YouTube..


I am liking some of the mechanics. For example, if you hold down your left-shift while riding your horse, it will follow the road directly in front of you. Your horse WILL run people over, but nice for jaunting between towns. Double-tap to have your mount run 'faster', but your horse will soon get exhausted. This is a great for escaping those bad guys that could snare you.

Start of the month, I re-started leveling my priest. She's taking advantage of wearing 3 heirlooms full-time (cloak, shoulders and neck) and then swapping out her crafted items when turning in quests.. Combine potion, heirlooms, and DMF buff, it provides a really nice xp boost. She basically only 'opened' her Gorgrond (gladiator stadium(?)) outpost, and was ushered off to Talador. Being able to fly between quest givers has been REALLY nice. "We just closed the pass, effectively stopping the iron horde from entering this valley. Let's go check in with the Laughing Skull.." Up, up and away!

Over the summer, I spent 2 weeks with my family (parents, brother's family and my family) on the beach in Maui. It was absolutely awe...
