Riddler’s Mind-Worm

A few days ago a friend told me about this mount, Riddler’s Mind-Worm, that was in the game but none really knew how to get it. He said there might be clues for it around in the world and that a group called the Secret Finding Discord Community was actively looking for these clues. Someone found a page called Page 9 in Dalaran that read “…of sea, spirit and self…” but none knew where to look next. This group searched all over the world for the next clue which would finally lead to the mount.

I love to explore, find secrets and solve riddles, so I would have loved to join them, but I didn’t have time to run around and look for clues. It was really exciting to follow their progress last night and read what the next clue was and then discover what it meant. It might just be me, but I don’t understand how the clues could have led them to those specific locations, because I don’t see how it’s logic. I get that the clue “…first of lords to fall…” means Ragnaros, but some of the others I don’t get at all. Maybe it helps to have read the book, World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1, which the clues are inspired by.

After I heard that the rest of the clues were solved and the mount was found, I went to collect the rest of the pages and obtain the mount for myself.

Thanks to Nightswifty’s guide on how to get the Riddler’s Mind-Worm and the Secret Finding Discord Community who solved the puzzle!

 

To top it all off: I finally hit revered with the Armies of Legionfall today and can now fly on the Broken Isles! I was so close yesterday and just needed a few more quests to get enough reputation. I understand why Blizzard kept us waiting this long and I’m fine with it, but I feel like I’ve spent enough time running around on the ground, being dazed a thousand times, getting stuck places and dying. It’s so great to finally be able to fly again!

 

Did you solve any of the clues and get your Riddler’s Mind-Worm?

Returning to the Broken Shore

I’ve been waiting for this patch for a long time because I really want to see how the story with Legion will progress and because I’m tired of running around on the ground and can’t wait to finally take to the skies again! So I’ve been trying to do daily quests every day or as soon as new ones pop up, I’m not 100% sure how they work anymore, and I kill as many rares as I see and loot chests to get more Legionfall War Supplies to turn in for reputation. I’m currently at 60% on honored but I haven’t done any quests today.

The Mage Tower was the first building we got but I didn’t even try the challenge because I knew that my gear wasn’t nearly good enough to make it so I saved myself the trouble and annoyance of failing. But I collected a bunch of Nethershards through quests on the shore, Legion Assaults on the islands and some Sentinax portal farm so I could finally buy some gear and get rid of my many 865 item level pieces. Hopefully my gear will be good enough to try out the challenge next time the Mage Tower is up.

I found a Legion Flying Disc on my first day at the Broken Shore and I didn’t really know what it was, but I jumped on it and was so excited to see that I could fly around on it for 2 minutes!

There is a tree near the beach behind the Deliverance Point on the Broken Shore. If you look closely near the trunk of the tree you can see a sign that says “Nothing Secret Here!” and a rope. So, is there really nothing secret there or? You know me, I always get so curious and have to look around but I didn’t find anything, which might be the point because there really isn’t anything secret.

A turtle named Hell Shell is located on the small islands to the east of the Broken Shore. You can see the islands on the Broken Isles map, not Broken Shore. The turtle drops Salt-Hardened Shell that can dismount players. It reminds me of a similar item we used on Alliance outside Ulduar while we were waiting for the raid to start back in Wrath of the Lich King.

A month of adventures

A month has passed since I decided to come back to WoW and it has been pretty fun so far because I’ve had plenty to do like leveling alts, battlegrounds, Nighthold and the Suramar storyline quests, class campaign, world quests and looting legendaries!

I completed the campaign on my shaman and finally unlocked the 3rd relic slot and new followers. My shaman also got her second legendary item last week which made it even more fun to heal because the ring, Focuser of Jonat the Elder, is great for chain healing which is my all time favorite healing spell. Elemental Rebalancers was the first legendary my shaman got.

My druid also got her second legendary a few days ago, Cinidaria the Symbiote which was a major upgrade from  a 855 belt. The first legendary was Promise of Elune the Moon Goddess.

I’ve also done a lot of world quests which I don’t find very fun at all, but still necessary to get more order resources and artifact power. Both my druid and shaman have purchased all the traits in their artifact weapon including the % extra damage/healing. My druid is at rank 40 and shaman at 36.

Finished the Suramar quest line and took my first step into the Nighthold (LFR). It’s a beautiful designed raid and I like how all of the bosses are unique and got different abilities. Even on LFR I found most of the bosses to be challenging but I can imagine they are even more exciting and fun on harder difficulties. My favorite boss is of course Gul’dan because it requires the raid to work together and people to do what they should, even on LFR.

Sadly, I’ve seen a ton of terrible players in LFR. Not only players who just got the required item level to queue, but players with good gear that just suck, who die to stupid things that are easy to avoid or have so low damage it almost makes you cry.

My fury warrior is now level 110. He was my first ever character and my main for years, so he is special to me and it was fun to play warrior again.

I did battlegrounds for the first time in Legion last week. Yes, really! Don’t think I’ve done a single battleground until now which is a bit weird because I used to do them all the time in Warlords of Draenor. Remember that I thought balance druid was really boring in PvE in WoD but so much fun in PvP? I think the changes they made to balance druids were good and it’s much better now than in WoD. But I still think it’s more fun in PvP than PvE because the rotation in PvE is so easy that it gets boring after a while of just standing there and repeating the same thing over and over again. So I will definitely continue to do more battlegrounds.

Infinite Timereaver and Primal Flamesaber

I got two new mounts in my collection last week!

The first one was the Infinite Timereaver that drops from bosses in timewalking dungeons. I’ve always wanted it because it looks awesome and I like dragon mounts, but I’ve never really liked timewalking dungeons so I refused to farm for it.

Fickle and savage, these drakes slip in and out of time until they find a worthy rider

The second mount I got was the Primal Flamesaber. It’s part of the “For Azeroth!” event in Heroes of the Storm and requires you to play 15 games as a Warcraft hero while in a group with a battle.net friend. You can play versus A.I. so it’s very easy. The event was supposed to end last week but it has now been extended, so you still have untill March 26 to get your mount! More info here.
