Since October I’ve been keeping a ToDo list here – see Category: Waiting for expansion for all the posts – mostly so that I’d get stuff done whilst we waited for Warlords to be released.
With Draenor so close, how well have I done?
The original post had a number of things I wanted to get done. With the exception of poking at Hearthstone and the proving grounds, I think I’ve done fairly well.
Seeker of Knowledge
But it finally dropped and my priest will wear that title for a long time.
I’m rather glad the Draenor version doesn’t have anything associated with it – looks to be a longer grind than the Pandaren one!
Plus it gave me a mount!
that. Over the last three months I’ve gained 24 new mounts:
- Jade Direhorn
- Slate Primordial Direhorn
- Brawler’s Burly Mushan Beast
- Son of Galleon
- Corrupted Egg of Millagazor
- Black Primal Raptor
- Thundering Jade Cloud Serpent
- Armored Razzashi Raptor
- Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent
- Flametalon of Alysrazor
- Emerald Hippogryph
- Swift Zhevra
- Ashhide Mushan Beast
- Dark Riding Talbuk
- Dark War Talbuk
- Bone-White Primal Raptor
- Red Qiraji Resonating Crystal
- Crimson Pandaren Phoenix
- Ashen Pandaren Phoenix
- Emerald Pandaren Phoenix
- Spawn of Galakras
- Drake of the East Wind
- Pureblood Firehawk
- Kor’kron Juggernaut
With the changes in 6.0.2 to allow the soloing of old raids I’ve also been poking Ulduar and ICC for mounts like Mimiron’s head and Invincible – things I didn’t think I’d be farming when I wrote my original list.
Leveling to 90
… I then turned around and spent 210,000g of that for raid carries.
Most of that was spending 200,000g to ensure I’d never have to set foot in Seige of Orgrimmar to farm the Kor’kron Juggernaut from Garrosh mythic. Given the low drop rate it’ll have in Warlords – 1%, the same as other raid boss mounts from older content – this is gold very well spent! Especially since farming it would mean either clearing SoO mythic every week or having a 13/14 mythic save.
The other 10,000g was donated to my guild to have them carry some of my non-raid geared characters to get them BoA weapons from Garrosh. Better for my guild to get it than another. If nothing else, this was effectively a down payment on raid repairs!
Over the course of Mists of Pandaria I’ve made 1,360,000g and spent 525,000g of that on mounts of various types.
I’m currently sitting on 1,070,000g which is a nice lump to have as we enter Warlords.
… and yes, I will probably spend 100,000g on the Alliance chopper. It is a mount after all!
