Professionalizing

In addition to all the leveling, rep “grinding”, gear gathering and raiding going on, I’ve been pretty big on leveling my professions with this expansion. I’ve been able to do pretty well so far with a few exceptions here and there. Here is what I have so far:

  • Fimlys (85): 525 Skinning, 525 Leatherworking
  • Fyra (85): 525 Herbing, 525 Alchemy
  • Fizz (80): 525/540 Engineering (Gnome), 507 Inscription
  • Fhuun (82): 525 Mining, 473 Tailoring
  • Freez (80): 501 Enchanting, 505 Jewelcrafting
  • Furis (80): 490 Blacksmithing, 408 Enchanting (not really working on this)

So, There it is. Things that were generally easy: Skinning (simple), Herbing, Mining, Alchemy.. Leatherworking is a pain in the butt. You have to make blue PvP items for the last 15 points. BAH! Engineering wasn’t horrible, but takes a bunch of mats to do it. A lot less than Blacksmithing though! Tailoring I really haven’t been working on significantly. For Inscription, I am up to the point where I am making Forged Documents once every cooldown (really once a day).. The mats for Jewelcrafting are pretty expensive right now too since I’m using my ore for Blacksmithing! The flood of greens from leveling professions and just plain leveling has dried up a bit, so my Enchanting has stalled at 501 so far. The Enchanting on Furis is just a secondary talent I took just so that I could disenchant the BoP crap I got from questing.

Tron_011111_235438One of the things that is really bugging me this time around is the requirement for some professions that you level them to 84 to get certain recipes that aren’t “drop” ones. The “trade-in” vendors, unlike last expansion, are not located in a main city (like Dalaran). They are in the Twilight Highlands behind a phase curtain. You have to be 84 so you can get the quest that moves the phase forward to where they are there. This is causing me grief with my Enchanter since he can’t make the rod he needs for certain recipes and I can see it causing issues with my Blacksmith too since there is a vendor for that one also in TH.

AlAkir_010611_221731Cooking is maxxed out on Fimlys but I still do the daily because I don’t have all the recipes yet. I also try to do the daily for Fishing because I haven’t maxxed that one out yet. So, I’m still working on the professions. Leveling Fhuun has helped a little with Tailoring since he picks up cloth, but the amount of cloth drops he’s getting seems low so far. And I have been trying to work on Enchanting and JC each day a little too. Doing the JC quests is nice any easy this xPac at least. Additionally, at some point I want to get my Engineering up. In reality, I believe I am at 510 because of the +15 engineering racial.. So I still have 15 more points to go to get the achievement! Wish me luck..

Not Halfus as Bad

I’ve already told you about Mythos starting to going raiding. This is our third week raiding and my second (unless I am off by a week.. eh, whatever) and as of last night, we’ve gotten down a total of 4 different raid bosses. We got down the Barad Hold boss last week and while we’d like to be able to take him down this week, it seems that the Alliance just can’t win Tol Barad. Since people stopped win trading, we’re back to never having the PvP zone anymore.

On Tuesday we went back into Blackrock Descent to try our luck with the Omnitron Defense System. After a couple of wipes (and I really mean a couple including one in which it reset so that doesn’t really count), we got them down! MagMaw_010411_230227We were, of course, extremely excited! We moved on from there to Magmaw, whom we had lots of problems with last time. Our main issue was with getting the adds down quickly enough. We had the same problem the first few tries and then subbed out a Warrior for a Death Knight. The DK helped kite and AOE the adds so we got them down much quicker than we would have otherwise and we finally got HIM down too! For the rest of that night we messed with Chimaeron, a 3 headed dog that is, well, a little different type of fight than we are used to in raids. We did not manage to even get him anywhere close to dead.

Halfus_010511_231206Wednesday came and we decided to go to The Bastion of Twilight. First boss? Halfus Wyrmbringer. If you remember, we gave him a shot last week and had a ton of problems because of the “drake choice” we had. This week wasn’t a very good combination either (Time Warden, Nether Scion, Slate Dragon) but the key was the Time Warden. We DID get him down after quite a few wipes. I picked up a new Trinket that makes me “Twisted” (literally.. that’s the proc)! We started with the Nether Scion actually and burned him down quick. When he was at 5%, I went and released the Time Warden and misdirected to the tanks. Dragons_010511_233909This slows down the Fireballs from the stupid netherdrake. You can actually avoid them now! This took a lot of pressure off of the healers and allowed them to keep the tanks up better without going out of mana so fast. We left the Slate Dragon because, the time before we downed him, we tried to kill him too and wiped on the engrage timer. Once we let him sleep, we had plenty of time to get the boss down.

We then went to give a few tries at Valiona & Theralion. Wow, not so easy. Lots of situational awareness stuff going on there. That was it for the night and I think we’re heading to Throne of the Four Winds to have a shot at the Conclave of Wind!
