As bucket lists go, I don’t have a huge amount I want to do but it was only in the last week or so, I mentioned to Cool how much I like using my pali’s Thalassian Charger and Argent Warhorse on my priest. I mean, it’s the closest thing to the Argent Charger without being a paladin so when he asked if I had one I had to double-check. It turns out I didn’t which makes sense because after grinding out all the pets and mounts back in Wrath, I was burnt out from spending any more time in that place. Well, that was all about to change.

I flew to the tournament already dreading the grind since I could only collect 2x Champion Seals a day so I thought I would need to open up all the faction dailies for the other Champion Seal quests. It turns out I only needed to be a champion for my own capital city. Woot!

Once I could do all the quests in the southernmost hut, it became pretty easy collecting 11x seals per day. I even tried the heroic dungeon after some encouragement from Saz and Sparklebeastly but the jousting still took me a while. It was hard to keep them down after knocking them off their mounts. Well, hard without being mounted myself anyway.

As soon as I hit 100 seals, I went straight for the vendor.

Now with one less thing to do, I’ll be spending some time levelling the rest of my pets (or as many pets as I can) before the expansion and hopefully take down Mingus Diggs in Brawler’s Guild to complete my shirt collection. I was pretty close to doing it the other day but I just need to perfect my strat.

Unfortunately, Doctor Theolen Krastinov from Scholo is still on the list, even though I’m checking every day. I swear he just doesn’t exist!

A normal or flex Garrosh kill would be nice without having to resort to OpenRaids or similar so until then, hope you’re making good progress on your own bucket lists.

Edit: There was one I forgot to mention – I’ve been trying to get Rabble, Rabble, Rabble for the longest time and was excited to see someone spamming the achievement just after I arrived in Org. At the time, they only needed five more bodies and it only took less than a minute before I saw the following: “portal is now up [so] get it while you can’.


I couldn’t have flown any faster and started recording just before I reached the portal to Stormwind. OMG, it lagged my game for a few seconds! I know the portal stays up for a few minutes so I thought I was still good on time and when I went to thank Pengali for spamming chat, he said I was lucky because the portal disappeared just after I clicked it. :)

Now to see how many toys I can collect before Tuesday.
