What’s Up, Little Pup?

Let’s see. I am at ilevel 335. I expect to reach 340 and ready to raid this week. It is the WQs for gear and the emissary daily. I can run, run, run across all of the zones to get to these WQs.

I bought the Drustvar Pig. From warcraftpets: Alliance players need to unlock Nigel Rifthold as a vendor. Head to Anyport (western coast of Drustvar), and purchase 10 Tirasreli Gourmet Chocolate from Xun Xun Sweetflower. Travel to 52,31 in Drustvar (west of Fallhaven, just above the “F” in the name), climb up a small hill and enter a tree house. Loot the chest, and then loot it a second time (will consume the Gourmet Chocolates), and Nigel will appear as a vendor.

You get a buff called something like, “No Good, Dirty, Rotten, Candy Stealer” for one hour. And, the gourmet chocolates are 50g each, but it is so worth it.

The Island Expeditions seem important. I did three the first week and then filled the bar this week and got a nice reward. But the bar was gone until the weekly reset. I will want to fill the bar every week. At ten minutes an encounter, this can be done.

The dungeon steps from normal to heroic to mythic 0 are not big steps. The mythic one’s will add some flavor and spice, maybe some surprise adds. Which leads me to …

What is the best way to run a dungeon? We have a ton of CC but it seems faster to pull and AoE them down. This seems to be the preference of the team; especially our fire Mage who seems to have very splashy spells.

The trash mobs are clustered pretty tightly, I can only guess that on the four-boss dungeons that filling the mob-bar on mythic plus will be what it’s all about. You can laugh at me but I wanted to use the AoE roots and have them pull one mob at a time and blow them down — no one liked that! But, it would be a healer’s dream.

Anchor Weed is the dumbest herb mechanic ever. There is no guarantee or place to find it, it is a random sprout off of another herb’s place. Running Winter’s Kiss up in Drustvar seems to be the best place but: if you want to make flasks in volume, you will be hurting!

  1. Saw a comment from someone in guild you may be interested in.

    BATTLE PET WORLD QUESTS have it so the enemy team’s pets SCALE to match your highest level pet!

    A comment on dungeons, I have run 3 Normal dungeons. One the tank kept a steady pace, kept pulls somewhat reasonable, there were a few deaths and run backs. A second the tank went all I R MYTHIC RAIDER HEAR ME ROAR RAWWWWR. And it was painful. Pulling entire rooms, not letting the healer get mana back, racing ahead of everyone, not waiting for everyone to get back. The last? The tank said up front, I won’t be doing big pulls, I LoS every pull so watch for markers where I’m bringing mobs back to. Healer? I will hold off until you are at 85% mana before I run in. OK? Lets do this.

    We went through with no deaths, everyone felt like we did it right, and many thank yous were passed around.

    That is the Warcraft I remember.

  2. I had one random dungeon where the tank was doing LoS pulls. It was heaven! Maybe dungeons would be smoother if everyone had to try each role a few times to see how it feels to be in the healer’s shoes πŸ˜›
