Time to empty the quest log

I admit it – I dislike having a a quest log that can never be cleaned out.  I seem to be battling the constantly full quest log and it is driving me mental. So in an effort to clear some of it out I signed up for random heroics. My ilevel is sitting at 846 now thanks to some world quests and so I figured it was about time.  I think I cleared out 2 quests with the 4 heroics I ended up doing.

Better than nothing, I still need Eye of Azahara, Darkheart Thicket….and one more….something…with a boss in it that has a quest item.  That isn’t including the 3 other Mythic dungeons I need to run still for a quest which have items I need to collect.

My first run was Blackrook hold – which I have a special room key for, but we were going so fast I was scared of getting lost as I barely able to keep up.  That place made me dizzy with all the spiral staircases – reminiscent of Shadowfang Keep 😀

Next I scored Neltharion’s Lair (which was a quest dungeon). Stupidly I used slowfall to get to the secret chest after the snake boss and then proceeded to fall out off the ledge when trying to turn around. Fail. Hardest fail ever.  That was after almost dying to the cliff boss on the first jump…yup, I almost died before even getting to the boss.

After that super speedy run with AOE tanking and just constant pulling, my next run was Maw of Souls (another quest in here).  I really like this dungeon. I don’t yet really understand all the fights (I need to do more reading) but I adore the mythology behind it all.   Almost nearly died to the purple on he ground with the last boss as I didn’t realise she faced a direction…corrected that on the next lot, which I was alive for thanks to the brilliant healer not letting me die.

I also ran a Halls of Valour which was horrific – it was the only run we had a wipe because the 2 tanks who couldn’t decide who was main decided to pull almost the entire room of Vikings in the longroom.  I couldn’t have face-palmed any harder for the risk giving myself a black eye. Fenrir also was to the left as you enter his realm which I had never seen before and so they were running all over the map looking for him whilst me and the healer followed the foot steps and kept telling them to come back.

Overall LFD was as expected, super quick, no waiting around and just getting it done. No time to ask questions just kill anything that spawns and stay out of the crap on the ground.  Only 1 bad group out of 4 is pretty good and I am not going to complain about that.  I don’t believe I got any gear out f those runs either which were of any use, I did hand over a shoulder piece to a mage, but I think that may have been the only one I actually got.

Free time again!!

So as most of my usual readers/friends know I do martial arts 3 nights a week (Tues/Wed/Thurs) and I am also studying for a bachelor online.  The last trimester of uni (which finishes this week) I decided to do 2 modules as I would in theory have 3 extra nights to study because martial arts were on extended holidays of Christmas. I was wrong.  The workload was way more than I anticipated.

I basically had no time for anything other than work, study and sleep.   I won’t likely do that again any time soon if I ever want to have free time to play WoW.

So a group of us have decided to do some regular dungeons runs on weekends which again, we haven’t managed to do with my schedule.  Finally this weekend just past we managed to get online for a couple of hours.

We did our first Mythic run “Halls of Valour” with Blikolorie tanking, Nibblepie healing, me and Lominari DPSing and we grabbed some random 5th person.  I might point out, neither Lominari or myself were really geared enough to be in there.  I think Lominari had a gear score of 816 or something and I was only 831.

The last boss was a little…difficult.  We had to do it about 8 times – if not more – and the random pug was really nice about the entire thing.  In the end…we got it done!

We decided to do some more work quests and chase some gear on the map, but headed to the epic world boss quickly first which scored some more gear upgrades for Lominari.  We did a whole bunch of quests and handed in 2 different emissary hand ins.

Do I look like I have a legendary yet? Do you see one on me anywhere? Can you see orange somewhere?

By the time we finished all the quests etc I managed to be on 838 for my ilevel and Lominari is now much more improved at 830.

We could even do some LFR which I am thinking i might do this week just to see what the new raids are like. Only the early raids at this stage but I am looking forward to – and also getting through some more of the Suramar quest line.  We are so far behind on the questing/class halls it is pretty daunting.
