Spring Update

Antorus
I have seen all the bosses of Antorus at least once on my hunter. Paladin has seen 'most' in tank spec, with someone else taking over passed Kingaroth (skipped Coven and Varimatharas). DPS having a lower level of expectation, my hunter has made it all the way through (except for ... pug killer kingaroth).

With that, I do have AOTC, via a friend-of-friend. He did a 'perky pugs' style raid run and pulled in a bunch of all-stars to help a few of us get the achievement. I did manage to pull some dps, just not the top of the charts, dps like others.

This same friend, also worked with us to get some of the achievements towards [glory of the argus raider].

  • [Remember the Titans] - CC one of each of the titans that spawn during coven fight. They picked the one wall opposite the stairs and CC'd the titan along that wall. 
  • [Hard to Kill] - tanks simply triggered every single trap running across bridge. Take it slow enough that healers can top off.
  • Don't Sweat the Technique - Instead of the tanks swapping directions, the rest of the raid needs to swap. Stand behind, stand in front, stand behind, etc. We had a warlock banish the add. My hunter frost trapped it once until banish cd came off. Besides the raid move (call out in discord), the tanks had to taunt perfectly so as to not get hit by knockback. I believe they stood at (10 & 2) behind tank while rest of us stood at 12 and 6. 
While I was in the group, we never completed Stardust Crusaders. I was one of the DPS that didn't release and res.. We attempted a couple times to get the achievement. I found a weak aura that 'helped' but I believe the raid leader needed something like that.. I believe we 'really' needed to wait until ~ 5% health and 6 of them to spawn. We were attempting it at 5 orbs, so only perfect amount of orbs to collect.. 


Mythic+
The guild is still running pugged mythic+ dungeons on a weekly basis. We're kinda stuck at the +14/15 level. None of my toons have experienced anything over +14 at the moment. Due to guildie having 3 different toons (tank, dps and healer), we swap out tanking duties. He's doing quite a bit better learning the fight intricacies, so he tanks more often.

My paladin is hovering around 945/947 for gear. No tier items yet so it's hurting her progress getting into raiding (except for 915 lfr editions).

My hunter on the other hand has gotten some nice RNG luck and pulled down 2 titanforged (980 boots and 985 bracers) items from the weekly loot box. This has pushed him to 957. Top this off with 2 Antorus tier pieces, with a third in the bags waiting for it's partner.



Legacy Raids/Dungeons

Glory of the Firelands Raider
Firelands = Stormwind/Orgrimmar -> Hyjal portal -> fly south, entrance is in middle of lava field).


  • Been looking at the legacy raid/dungeon achievements. I found that I am only 2 away on [Glory of the Firelands Raider], i.e. Bucket List and Only the Penitent. Paladin runs out there to do Bucket List, in full armor, and manages to kill boss via enchants (Army). Sigh, I don't seem to be able to zone out and run in 10-man vs 25-man mode?? Only the Penitent is going to require more players. It appears 5 more people in voice chat. The rest of the achievements are trivial at 110. 

Glory of the Ulduar Raider
Dalaran:Legion -> portals -> Wyrmrest Accord (chromie scenarios) -> fly north to Ulduar.


  • [Iron Dwarf, Medium Rare] is keeping me from finishing the [Glory of the Ulduar Raider] (i.e. the 25 man version).


[Glory of the Raider]

... Wyrmrest -> East to Naxx.

 Ran Naxxaramas with a guildie and we got separated. He did one wing while I did another. He got all those achievements, while I got the ones in mine zone. Now need to go back and complete them again.

Glory of the Icecrown Raider (25) - Ran half of raid in NORMAL mode and didn't get any achievements, then realized and changed raid. Still need to complete [Been waiting a long time for this (25)].

Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider
Dalaran:Legion -> portals -> Caverns of Time -> follow map.
  • Ran Dragon Soul for the first time all the way through. Soloing Deathwing's spine was interesting. Not 'hard' on a 110 paladin, but hard in the since of what am I doing? 



Random
Mage tower - paladin made 30 attempts one day last week. Still not getting any closer on finishing first mini-boss off. Like proving grounds of WoD, I think I am missing the majorly obvious mechanic.

PVP Prestige - sigh.. Usually, PVP on paladin isn't so bad, but last few weeks, the alliance just can't win.

  1. The most annoying achievement of Argus is Stardust Crusaders. You basically need a weakaura macro to figure out whether you've managed to get the achievement or not.
