Ok, so my rogue is exalted with SSO. And I got the tabard and the necklace. Cool. I've logged in with(or tried to remember to) every day just to do the 4 dailies that have the chance to get a Badge of Justice, and so far have gotten ZERO since hitting exalted. He is stuck at 10 badges.

And now my Shaman is exalted with SSO. Got the shield as well as the neck and tabard. Wooh. And probably will not continue doing those 4 dailies. Stuck at 11 badges.

We will be working on getting my Paladin and his Shadow Priest to exalted next. I'm really sick of these quests though. I actually logged into my hunter for an hour or so and did a few Nagrand quests, but I can't even be bothered to play him for more than that right now. Ugh.

Back to being a yawnfest/grind and yet part of me WANTS to log in and play all day and another part says NO work on your website! And another part says 'You paid for a life-time membership for Lord of the Rings...PLAY THAT!'. And yet, no, I can't even do that right now. Everything makes me bored right now. And I don't know what to do!

Weekend goals and more SSO and other stuff

So.....ya know that new fishing daily? Well, most of the quests require you to have high level fishing(at least 300+). Except the one to fish up the Baby Croc in Orgrimmar. You only need level 70 and fishing of skill level 1! So I had done this daily yesterday with 4 of my 70s. My last, Eremit, did not even know fishing. So I decided to fly him to Zangarmarsh and learn fishing. Bought a cheap fishing pole and headed to Org. After several 'fish got away's and getting his fishing all the way to 11, he caught the baby croc. And took it back to Mr Questgiver fisher dude. And Lo and Behold, my newly learned fisherman got himself a Baby Croc to follow him around! His name is Toothy and he is just about the cutest pet I have! My pally is so serious, his only pet had actually been Egbert, but I think Toothy is going to be very happy with Eremit! =)

As for SSO, Rayak is up to 10,820/12k. That means tomorrow he will be Revered and will be able to buy the new swords! And I will head to Silvermoon to respec to Combat swords from Combat/Sub daggers. I will still use my Retainers Blade from Scryers Exalted(how could I not?), but I hope he does tons more damage with these swords. Now to decide what enchants to get and what I can afford. Sweet!! And then hopefully just another week and a half or so to epic necklace and a new tabard. Very cool. =) Then I will work on the others. Kick will be revered in probably about 3 more days, same for Tohopka. Eremit will take a little longer, but I have such a hard time soloing with him on tough mobs. Oh well.

ALSO....I have come up with a way to do the boycott I had originally planned to do for this whole deal. I didn't want to help those "higher-ups" get their precious places opened sooner, screw em. They complain about someone like me being able to get easy rep or Badges of Justice or Primal Nethers without working so hard like they did(waaaaaaaaah!). Well, only 2(now 3 maybe?) of the daily quests count towards progression of the new areas. So with 5 characters, I was doing my part to help. But now....I do those with Rayak, but only the NON-progression quests with the rest of my characters. I ain't helping anymore than I have too. Boooo to you.

Elitists....another reason to hate this game. Sigh....

One week later with Shattered Sun

So far I am liking this new patch. The dailies can be tedious and a bit annoying but the rewards are good for someone who primarily solos. I've done them all almost every day with my 5 70s. As of maintenance today they are at the following:
  • Rayak -Honored 4220/12k
  • Kickingbird -Honored 3670/12k
  • Tohopka -Honored 3470/12k
  • Eremit -Honored 2570/12k
  • Wormtongue -Honored 220/12k
Not too bad I suppose, without running the new instance at all. Our server is on pace to hit Phase 3 in about 5 days. I could easily be Revered with at least Rayak by then. And when new areas open, new quests are added, which means more rep per day.

And it appears that at the end, when all phases and vendors are unlocked, all quests will still be available. If I did my math right, it will be 18 quests for 4350 rep and 202 gold. Per day. You could go from 0 Revered to exalted in about 7 days with that! And that means I am in no rush to get all of my characters to Exalted ASAP. Rayak, yes. Eremit and Tohopka as well. But Kick and Worm can wait on this one.

In the meantime, I've managed to gather quite a bit of gold doing this among my characters. Kick already has her epic flyer(and Netherray and Netherdrake :smile: ). Now I am wondering which one to buy for next. Rayak is a herbalist/skinner. But Tohopka is an engineer and would get the cool Chopper and be able to farm motes faster-*however* I still need 4 more points to get full in Engineering and can't make the chopper until then. Not too concerned about getting it for Eremit or Worm.

I have also considered letting Eremit spend his money on some jewelcrafting recipes. I bought the Dazzling Talasite recipe for 260gold. I had an abundance of Talasites and I had wanted that gem for my Shaman anyway. Always need MP5 with her. I still can't bring myself to spend too much for one, but I'm a cheapskate and I'd rather just save usually. We shall see, maybe if I find some good deals.

Now if the realms would just come back online!!!!!!!!!
