Long Road Achievements

Long Road Achievements

Tomorrow is the Dark Moon Faire and several players in my guild will ding 800 in their professions. These players may have crafted very little at all but wanting the max have patiently moved up five points at a time every month.

There are a lot of Long Road Achievements in the game.

Today, I got the Stylist title!

This is from two of my characters patiently using their free World Quest token on the Marks of Honor quests about every three days, it seems. Since they are bind-on-account, I have been funneling them to my main. These sets are from past PvP seasons and some kind of pool that I have never even dipped my toe.

And, y’know something? I will never wear these sets. Instead I’ll visit Kamalia et Alia for some brilliant ideas from all of my pieces.

I used the Suggestion Box to send a message to the designers that I want more than one title up; I want a front one and a back one. I’d like to be Stylist Wrathsome the Fabulous!

The news of the day is the change to the number of pieces that you will need in your wardrobe to (hopefully, eventually) get the Fabulous title. Alternative Chat wrote up a commentary called She’s in Fashion and Bubbles of Mischief also gave us an update called Fashionista Changes which also included a video. Seeing that video, one notes that to make a transmog change — a full set would cost about 300 gold! You won’t see me swapping sets often, I promise!

Go ahead and read their pages, they have much more insight than I do!

I visited Captive Wrymtongue, the vendor for the Invasions. I went to Gadgetzan but later found out that he’ll be in our capital city as well.

I think everyone who plays a Warlock will want the Felbat Pup for the low low price of 1800 Nethershards. Remembering that you get a mere 260 Nethershards, this pet will cost you the time and play of eight Invasions — totally fun.

The Captive Wrymtongue also sells armor ensembles, which are transmog sets that look very “legion invasion” and fabulous! Warning: these ensemble tokens are Bind on Pick Up! Buying a leather token with my Mage would bring heartbreak. The ensemble armor set costs a trifle: only 1850 Nethershards.

This is also an introduction to the “ensemble set token” system, new to Legion.

I looked up Ensemble: Felshroud Leather Armor on Wowhead and got way too much information.

The other armor sets are:
Ensemble: Fel-Infused Cloth Armor
Ensemble: Fel-Chain Mail Armor
Ensemble: Felforged Plate Armor

Along our pre-expansion patch journey, we will want to do all of the Legion Invasions and get the feat of strength: Defender of Azeroth. Frankly, it should be a title, right?

How do these ensemble sets work? Does learning via that token break them into all the pieces into my wardrobe? Or does it keep it always as a single set … we’ll find out, I’m excited.

The new Legion Alpha build has listed the following:
Lots of new transmog achievements, including the new title rewarded by Fabulous: %s the Fabulous.

From the looks of things, we’ll get most of the pre-achievements to the title just by logging in on Day One. 25 helms, 25 waist, 25 chest etc.

I might be challenged by the 25 off-hands, that has me worried.

25 tabards. Well, I have the collect 60 tabard achievement but I’ve thrown them all way except for maybe three. No bag space! Will the new wardrobe feature load all of my past collecting or will I have to visit the vendors and buy them all over again.

25 shirts. Yikes. I have the Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing from next to the First Aid trainer in Dalaran. I have Captain Sander’s Shirt on most of my characters. I think that might be it!

Oh my stars, I want this Fabulous title!
