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.

The Real Neat Blog Award

Cymre and Kamalia nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award.

Thank you! real-neat-blog-award

The rules are:

  • Thank and link the person who nominated you
  • Answer the seven questions your nominator has provided
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers and create 7 questions for them

 

Cymre’s questions

  1. How would you pass the time during a blackout?
    I would probably read a book.
  2. If you could be any superhero for a day, who would you be and why?
    I would be Wonder Woman because she’s an amazing character, strong and with many useful abilities
  3. What is one thing you love collecting or loved collecting as a child/adult?
    I used to collect many things as a child, but my favorite thing was joker cards because I got inspired by one of my favorite books The Solitaire Mystery by Norwegian author Jostein Gaarder.
  4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    Australia because I could visit my relatives, half sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins that I’ve never met before. I want summer, sun and beaches, and there are so many places and things I would like to see and explore.
  5. If you could only take one item to a deserted island, what would it be?
    Can I bring a boat so I can get home again?
  6. Who is your main and why do you love playing her/him?
    My main is Syrco, a balance druid, but I play my alt, a resto shaman, as much as if not more than my main. They have been my favorite characters since Wrath of the Lich King. I like balance druid because I can look like a big fat owl and go crazy with laser beams. Resto shaman is fun because I can heal big groups at a time and I like how chain heal jumps around.
  7. Favourite phone app?
    The app I use the most is Pokemon GO. I play when I walk to or from the bus, when I’m waiting for something or maybe I decide to go for a walk just to play.

 

Kamalia’s questions

  1. What locations in WoW have the best background music?
    I don’t remember all the exact locations, but some of my favorite music is Night Elves, Invincible, Arthas My Son, The Whispering Forest and all the music in Ulduar.
  2. Are there any ways in which WoW (or other games) has influenced or inspired things you do in your pay-the-bills career?
    No, I don’t think so, nothing comes to mind.
  3. Which calculator format do you prefer — TI (enter numbers and operations as you would write them on paper) or HP (reverse Polish)?
    I have no idea what that means, I hate math.
  4. What was the most memorable book that you read/movie that you watched last year? What made it so memorable?
    Book: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because I love the Harry Potter books and I always wished for another book from the Harry Potter universe. The book took me back to the wizarding world and Hogwarts. It was an amazing journey.
  5. If you could take six months off from your current job and go back to college for a semester and study anything you wanted, what class(es) would you take?
    I never went to college because I still have left to finish some classes from high school. My plan is to go to college or university but I’m not sure what I want to study.
  6. Give me a recipe for something that you like to make for dinner when you don’t have much time or energy for cooking.
    One of my favorite things to make is actually pretty quick.
    Fry minced chicken, add taco seasoning. Cut tomatoes and cucumber. Heat frozen pita breads. Roughly mash one avocado, add lime juice, some salt and pepper. Spread sour cream and avocado in the pita bread, then add chicken, tomatoes and cucumber, more avocado and sour cream on top.
  7. My current favorite chocolate bar is Chocolove’s “Holiday” bar, which is 55% cacao chocolate with pecans, currants, dried cherries, walnuts, hazelnuts, candied orange peel, and candied ginger — every square is a different delight! What’s your favorite sweet treat of the moment?
    I could eat a giant Toblerone every day, it’s so good! Luckily they don’t sell the big ones here and the small ones are so expensive, so I don’t eat them very often.
