Trivia: Professions, Mogging, New Armory & Reputations

A quick weekend summary is starting… now!

Reputations

Rep

  • Blue: Honored
  • Cyan: Revered
  • Orange: Exalted & Counting
  • Italic: current emissary to complete

I’m on fire with emissaries :) The chase to Exalted is very exciting, and I think I’m gonna be there by the end of May. Then I could split my toons into teams and slowly farm the chests for faction mounts.

I’m not doing Broken Shore dailies except main story quests. Micromantica will hit Exalted and more when the storyline will be complete with not a single extra WQ in Broken Shore. The other toons are now bound in Sentinax part.

I’ve did at least one invasion on every toon, and I have Cathedral dungeon to run yet on two toons – for the quest.

All in all I plan Broken Shore to be my relaxed activity between raids in June.

Mogging

Suddenly I’ve realized that The Nighthold’s class mogging set could – and should – be composed of both Emerald Nightmare and The Nighthold itself. And what is better: I could farm for certain items on several toons of the same armor type. For example, my demon hunter lacks wrists, so my monk, druid, rogue and demon hunter would run the same boss – which makes it 8 attempts if you count coin tosses too.

So, the last cooldown was dedicated to leather & mail toons, and this week it’s gonna be the same. When I’m done with them, then cloth and plate toons come into action.

I’ve realized that I don’t need the set bonuses or gearing up. I’m more than ready for the next LFR with my 860-880+ ilvls, so it’s just hungry wardrobe that makes me run these raids :)

Talking about mogging, there’s a brand new armory which you have probably checked out already.

It makes perfect sense to enhance the class rather than race. Many people prefer to play just elves, or mostly tauren, or humans, or gnomes of course. But people mostly roll a new toon to try a new class, so here’s variety for you.

I’ve checked out every armory of course as I have every class. My personal favorites are monk, shaman – and I could never believe it – the fel colors of demon hunter.

Profession Bonanza

It’s Darkmoon Faire, and it was time to revise the mats I’ve collected during the month and level up.

I’ve led toons through many dungeons on profession quests – the long forgotten ones. Obviously I’ve done profession quests in DMF. And I’ve spent enormous amounts of mats, mercilessly for raising my skill level.

I got Resourceful, Working the Isles, and Legion Cook achievements.

What is left is First Aid – which is a separate thing. And there’s Blacksmith to do to get Legion Master of All. It’s only 5 points to go, and what do I need: Mindebad is less than 1k from Exalted with Valar’jar – who will grant her the next stars – which will allow to go through those 5 points :)

My profession goals today are learning as much schemes and recipes as I can, craft whatever mogging, toys and stuff, and have a rest. I love crafting, but it’s been awful in Legion. I want to end it, and I see the finish line.

Alt Management: Reputation Teams

In 7.2. there is a new addition which I’m gonna be busy with. It’s the brand new emissary chests with mount rewards.

I’ve conjured up a plan, but before I start with it, I’m gonna continue my work on reputations that I started before patch. My goal is Exalted with all Legion factions on every toon – not to miss the profession level 3 recipes and also gain some freedom. I see it as a necessary cap for my alts.

So, when I’m there, I’ll be playing a game called ‘Reputation Teams’.

These are my goals here:

  1. Provide a solid flow of emissary chests
  2. Cover every faction
  3. Have fun and not burn out

How’s the game played?

I have 12 alts of top level able to do the world quests. We have 6 factions (I don’t count Legionfall here).

Here’s what I do: I split up my toons into three teams of four toons. And I will assign a pair of factions for every team.

For example, ‘Team Suramar’ may consist of my four goblins. And when the Nightfallen emissary will pop up, they are obliged to complete the Nightfallen chests, or the other teams won’t understand their laziness.

So they will be doing Nightfallen chests until they get the Nightfallen mount. Four toons is perfect: with flights the whole batch for one toon would take 10-15 minutes which roughly equals an hour for one day.

Of course the goblins are not only ‘Team Suramar’, but they are also ‘Team Azsuna’ – so they’re responsible for Farondis and Nightfallen mounts.

Kirin Tor could be used by alts as a bonus points for their teams.

Here’s what I’m achieving with this approach:

1/ All factions are covered. And I’m going at every chest with four alts at once.

2/ Every alt receives attention: every day I pick other alts, so I don’t forget how to play them, and they also advance with resources, artifact power and what not.

3/ Competition is the most precious thing here. The team which gets to the mounts first will cry woo-hoo! and be a king :)

4/ I don’t burn out with the grind thing Blizzard made us to do :)

Alt management!
