We didn’t really have a plan for Saturday night. Bung was out again and none of us seemed to have anything on our “to do” list except try to pick up a little more gold for various reasons.
Our team for the night was:
Ula – 79 Mage
Skronk – 80 Priest
Earlthecat – 80 Warrior
Vikund – 80 Paladin
Skronk had picked up 80 earlier and Ula was closing in, so we decided to run around a do some daily quests and whatever happened to pop up.
My own first task was to finish off one of the cooking achievements.
I am now literally one recipe away from getting the achievement and the title Hail to the Chef achievement, which also gives you the title “Chef.” I just need to finish off The Outland Gourmet, and the only thing holding me back on that is one recipe, Stormchops. It only drops as part of one of the cooking daily quests, and so far it has eluded me.
Then it was noticed that Wintergrasp was starting in just a few minutes. It is inevitably an hour or more away whenever I think to check on it. Skronk and I queued up and jumped in for our first ever experience in that battleground.
The Alliance lost. We certainly weren’t helping much, not knowing what was going on in the first place really. I did get to roll around as a gunner in a siege engine for a bit, and blew up quite a bit of stuff that fell within range.
We managed to complete a few of the quests that were offered up in the zone along the way, including the destruction of three Horde siege engines. I had to finish off that last one on foot. I hadn’t yet discovered the anti-tank weapons in the battleground, so I did it in with a constant stream of pally attacks.
We then joined up with Ula who had picked up level 80 in the mean time, and ran some daily quests in Icecrown where we got to experience the new, multiple Ula effect.
That only leaves Bung to pick up level 80.
In turning in daily quests I hit another achievement along with the meta achievement for being exalted with both the Argent Dawn and the Argent Crusade.
Meanwhile Earl was out grinding some other daily quests and mining to save up for the Jeeves repair bot, another engineering marvel. He actually saved up enough to make it last night. Of course, now he is broke again. More daily quests!
And then we wrapped up the night around the Argent Tournament. Earl and Skronk were just starting off while Vikund, already an exalted champion of Stormwind, is looking to add Gnomergen to his achievements so he can ride around on a mechanostrider.
And that was about it. A light round for the instance group.
