WoW Blackwing Lair

WoW: Blackwing Lair

Last December I wrote about the Classic World of Warcraft Onyxia Lair raid, since then however I have neglected to write about other raids such as Blackwing Lair. Ever since Blackwing Lair was launched in Classic World of Warcraft my guild has cleared it of all of the bosses and distributed the loot. With the exception of the last two bosses in the first week and from being on standby a subsequent week, I have been present for all guild raids. As such I have been lucky enough to have been awarded 8 pieces of loot so far which is around 1 piece of loot every 2 weeks, my favourite being Claw of the Black Drake, which actually needs replacing as soon as possible, either with Chromatically Tempered Sword or Vis’kag the Bloodletter if I can get a better offhand weapon.

Blackwing Lair also contains most of the tier 2 set items which for me is the Bloodfang Armour set. So far I have 6 out of 8 set items and will be overjoyed if I am able to complete the set which will give me a powerful set bonus, at least for sword rogues such as myself.

When I played Vanilla World of Warcraft, around 15 or so years ago, I don’t recall ever attending a Blackwing Lair raid and, while in later expansions I frequently cleared the raid to obtain loot for vanity, I didn’t know what to expect. Here is a video of my guild and I clearing Blackwing Lair back in April. I have time stamped each boss in the description for those who are interested in a certain encounter.

To be honest, I am a little disappointed at how easy the raid is. I imagine it was much harder during Vanilla when the raid was first released, but, even so, most of the time it seems very forgiving when mistakes are being made.

Blackwing Lair is currently where most of the best items can be obtained and as such I shall try to continually attend raids my guild organize, even in the unlikely event I am awarded every item I want in there, it is still a great place to help others get the items they need for future, hopefully more difficult, content.

I shall endeavour to write about my experiences and opinions about the other raids Classic World of Warcraft currently has to offer, Molten Core and the somewhat recently released Zul’Gurub.


Super Mario Bros

Super Mario Bros

Not too long ago I aquired a SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) emulator and, as well as Street Fighter II, I have been using it to play Super Mario Bros. This has in turn inspired a trip down memory lane.

One of the first video games I ever played was Super Mario Bros on the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). Some of my earliest memories is staying with my father and playing this game for the first time. The idea that you could control the movements of a character on the television was magical, at least to 4 or 5 year old me.

Later, aged 7, I needed an operation in hospital. Obviously this wasn’t a pleasant experience but there was a room on the children’s ward that had an NES and indeed Super Mario Bros. One of the older kids showed everyone a secret he discovered on the first level of the game, where you could get an extra life. The idea that the game had hidden secrets to be discovered amazed me and I later found out that the game was full of them.

Not long after my stay in hospital, I was given a second hand NES with a small collection of games including Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, Double Dragon II and III among a few others.

For readers who are not aware of this iconic game which was first released in 1985, I created a sample of the game play using the SNES emulator.

The SNES emulator is actually emulating a game called Super Mario All Stars which included Super Mario Bros and was released in 1993. As far as I am aware, this is the first instance of a game being remade and includes improved graphics and soundtrack.

When playing legitimately, by that I mean by not using any of the games exploits or cheats, I have managed to reach level 3 of world 8 with 882,600 points (Last updated 29/05/2020). This is by no means an impressive accolade but I want it documented should I wish to try and beat my record.

World 8 Level 3

It’s nice to play something different than World of Warcraft or Snooker Nation. While I doubt I will sink too much time playing Super Mario Bros, I do hope to play a more variety of old and new games in the future.


Classic WoW May Update

WoW: May Update

I have had yet another excellent month of Classic WoW. I have continued to dabble in PvP (Player vs Player) to maintain rank 7 (Knight-Lieutenant) by getting around 50,000 honour points a week which is very little and takes maybe 2 or 3 hours to accomplish.

My guild and I continue to clear the Molten Core and Blackwing Lair raids and as a result I have been awarded two pieces of loot which I can cross off my wish list below.

Prestor’s Talisman of Connivery
Cloak of Firemaw
Bloodfang Chestpiece
Bloodfang Bracers
Bloodfang Belt
Band of Accuria
Master Dragonslayer’s Ring
Drake Fang Talisman
Chromatically Tempered Sword (Main hand weapon)
Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight (Off hand weapon)

In addition, I have also been awarded Taut Dragonhide Belt without incurring GP (Gear Points). In my opinion this is more suitable for a feral druid, however, none of the druids wanted the belt and I think it is pretty good for my rogue until I get Bloodfang Belt and even then may continue to be useful in PvP.

Last week, the right hand Bindings of the Windseeker used to create the Classic WoW iconic legendary Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker dropped from Garr in Molten Core. Of all the years playing World of Warcraft I think this comes close to one of my favourite moments. I now look forward to seeing the left hand bindings drop and helping our main tank, Eremir, create the sword.

My guild and I have also been clearing the recently released Zul’Gurub raid and, while there is nothing there on my wish list, I have been fortunate enough to have been given the items I require, namely Primal Hakkari Idol and Punctured Voodoo Doll to enchant both my head and leg item with Death’s Embrace. I will need to continue to raid Zul’Gurub to obtain exhaulted reputation with the Zandalar Tribe who will in turn sell me a Zandalar Signet of Might which will enchant my shoulder item.

I am pleased to have reached exhaulted reputation with Timbermaw Hold. What I most enjoyed about this experience is when you report to the Dwarf King Magni Bronzebeard in Ironforge he yells “Let it be known that Mithril – Alliance Rogue – has earned the undying respect of Ironforge and the Alliance as a whole. She has engaged in great diplomacy with Timbermaw Hold and performed valiant actions for them on our behalf. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Three cheers for Mithril – a true hero of the Alliance!”

It seemed to take forever, but I am also happy to be able to cross off getting 300 bow skill from my goals list. I have added getting exhaulted reputation with Zandalar Tribe which should be very easy.

Gain exhaulted with Timbermaw Hold
Gain exhaulted with Argent Dawn
Gain exhaulted with Zandalar Tribe
Get 300 skill in fishing
Get 300 skill in bow
Get 300 skill in gun

Finally and perhaps more importantly, on the 29th April, the officers in my guild, Inspire, decided to promote me to the rank of Veteran. This rank gives me access to an exclusive veteran channel on the guild discord server and will give me the occasional opportunity to help the officers steer the guild when decisions need to be made. To many, this may seem trivial, but to me shows that my efforts have been recognized and that my guild mates enjoy playing Classic WoW with me and want me to be a core part of the guild. I am really proud of how far I have come since my Playing Alone post written back in September and I am proud to be a part of the Inspire community.


WoW Warsong Gulch

WoW: Warsong Gulch

In my WoW: Arathi Basin post I said that I would endeavour to write about the Warsong Gulch battleground. Warsong Gulch is the first battleground to be released in WoW (World of Warcraft) 15 or so years ago. Because of this, Warsong Gulch has some of my first PvP (Player vs Player) memories as a level 30 – 40 druid where I needed to make my way to the Ashenvale battleground entrance (There were no battle masters at first) to queue for 20 – 40 minutes at a time to get a game. Here is the original video Blizzard Entertainment created for Warsong Gulch.

Warsong Gulch is a very simple 10 vs 10 capture the flag game, the first team to capture 3 flags, wins. To do this a team must take the enemy flag from the enemy base where they started and take it to their own base. If an enemy has your flag, you can return it to your base by killing them and clicking on the flag before another enemy player. I have won and lost countless games of Warsong Gulch and have established that there are numerous ways to win the game but, in my opinion, the most effective way is to try and control the middle of the battleground. Doing this makes it easier to react to either defend an ally who has the flag or kill an enemy who has your own while making it more difficult for your opponents.

I have already shown off in my WoW: April Update post, but I would like to share another good Warsong Gulch score sheet of mine.

WoW WSG Score

Here is a video I made of a Warsong Gulch match. I feel as though my video editing skills are slowly getting better but the actual capture and/or rendering of the video could be improved. Something for me to think about when I create more videos for my blog.

Like with Arathi Basin, there is a PvP faction, Silverwing Sentinels for the Alliance and Warsong Outriders for the horde. Silverwing Sentinels is by far my most favourite faction and have my favourite tabard. It’s not easy for a casual player, but I will attempt to play enough matches in order to reach exhaulted reputation and earn the tabard over a long period of time.


Snooker Nation

Snooker Nation April 2020

This month both Jason and I scored a maximum break of 147 and, with a lot more time on our hands, we squeezed in 7 matches. We have agreed however that we shouldn’t play more than once a week moving forward as we both found that playing too often took the fun out of the game. I have ended the April with a 3 match lead which is pretty big given that there are only two months left of our second Snooker Nation season.

02/04/2020 – Match 74

A nice start for me this month winning 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11, putting me ahead on matches won. I got lucky this match as at one stage I was down 4 frames to 1 but somehow managed to win 5 frames in a row to claim victory. There were three century breaks, 101 in the 3rd and 133 in the 5th frame belonging to Jason, I myself secured a break of 136 in the 8th frame.

03/04/2020 – Match 75

Winning this match 6 frames to 5 in a best of 11 gives me a 2 match win streak. There were 4 century breaks in total, I got 122 in the 1st frame which incidentally could have been my 3rd maximum break of 147 if I hadn’t of messed up the positioning on the final green ball. I also got 131 in the 11th and final frame. Jason bagged 2 centuries of his own, 114 in the 4th and 109 in the 8th frame.

09/04/2020 – Match 76

Jason ends my win streak beating me 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11 and, perhaps more importantly, scores a break of 147 in the 4th frame, the maximum break possible in a game of snooker. This is after 438 hours of Snooker Nation playtime and is an excellent achievement which I captured in the video below. Jason also scored 111 in the 7 frame which further demonstrates how well he played this week.

10/04/2020 – Match 77

After the domination Jason showed in our last match, including scoring a maximum break of 147, I am relieved to have won this match 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. There were numerous opportunities for me to score century breaks but I was not able to capitalize. As a result Jason scored the only century for the evening of 115 in the 3rd frame.

13/04/2020 – Match 78

I felt a little bad after this match. At times I was somewhat lucky with the balls but from the offset Jason had all the bad luck, resulting in me winning 6 frames to 2 in a best of 11 with the only century break of 139 in the 7th frame. We agreed that we have been playing far too much Snooker Nation lately. With this extra time on our hands we have been playing more than we normally would which is taking the fun out of it. Perhaps it’s time we looked at playing a different game as well as Snooker Nation while we, more so I, have all this spare time.

17/04/2020 – Match 79

This was a far more enjoyable match, we both played really well and it could have gone either way. In the end I was victorious winning 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11. There were 4 century breaks between us, Jason got a massive 141 in the 2nd frame and 119 in the 8th. I am chuffed to get a 147 in the 3rd frame which makes 3 maximum 147 breaks in my Snooker Nation career. I also scored a break of 106 in the 9th frame.

24/04/2020 – Match 80

After winning 3 matches in a row, Jason once again breaks my win streak winning 6 frames to 3 in a best of 11. I am slightly annoyed with myself because the shots I missed were by a large margin. Usually, when missing, the ball will rattle around the pocket but most of my misses this week were not even remotely close. There were 3 centuries, Jason scored 104 in the 5th frame and 128 in the 8th frame where as I got a massive 142 in the 7 frame.

WoW April Update

WoW: April Update

I think I have had an excellent month of Classic World of Warcraft. As indicated in my previous post WoW: Arathi Basin, I have been PvPing a fair amount and have reached rank 7 (Knight-Lieutenant). I plan to continue to PvP but only to maintain my rank or perhaps slowly increase it. I will endeavour to write about the other two battlegrounds, Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley in due course. For now, I want to share a moment of pride after winning a Warsong Gulch battle yesterday with 20 killing blows, 1 death, 44 honourable kills and 2 flag returns. I really showed those Russians!

WoW WSG Score

Having consistently cleared Blackwing Lair, Molten Core and Onyxia’s Lair raids with my guild, I have been fortunate enough to have been awarded a number of new items and as such can cross out Bloodfang Spaulders, Vis’kag the Bloodletter and Striker’s Mark from my wish list below:

Prestor’s Talisman of Connivery
Bloodfang Spaulders
Cloak of Firemaw
Bloodfang Chestpiece
Bloodfang Bracers
Bloodfang Belt
Band of Accuria
Master Dragonslayer’s Ring
Drake Fang Talisman
Chromatically Tempered Sword (Main hand weapon)
OR
Vis’kag the Bloodletter (Optional, 2nd best main hand)
Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight (Off hand weapon)
OR
Brutality Blade (Optional, 2nd best offhand weapon)
Striker’s Mark

While it is not best in slot (BiS) I have been given Nightslayer Chestpiece which is a lot better than what I had and I only paid half GP (Gear Points) for it after sharing my views on the GP values of items which are no longer BiS with my guild officers. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of items going to waste as outlined in my WoW Loot Systems post but it is also good to know that the officers in my guild are genuinely open to suggestions and, if they so choose, act upon them when appropriate.

In addition to these items I also acquired a Claw of the Black Drake fist weapon. Although I wish to use swords, I have really enjoyed using this weapon as it hits pretty hard. For now I think this is a better weapon for my PvP (Player vs Player) escapades, but will stay true to swords and try to replace it, preferably with Chromatically Tempered Sword or Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight as listed above (I have gone off Brutality Blade).

Last month I set myself some goals, only one of which I can cross off but I have made some excellent progress with most of the others:

Gain exhaulted with Timbermaw Hold
Gain exhaulted with Argent Dawn
Gain exhaulted with Stormpike Guard
Get 300 skill in fishing
Get 300 skill in bow
Get 300 skill in gun

Moving forward I hope to cross off more from my lists, In addition a new raid, Zul’Gurub, will be released tomorrow which I am hoping will be a lot of fun and will give me more goals and objectives to pursue.


WoW Arathi Basin

WoW: Arathi Basin

As part of my Classic World of Warcraft journey I have been trying to PvP (Player vs Player). All three battlegrounds for Classic World of Warcraft are now available which include Arathi Basin.

Arathi Basin is located in the Arathi Highlands zone of Eastern Kingdoms and is a 15 vs 15 king of the hill type of battle. The Alliance and the Horde battle for control of 5 bases (Stables, Gold Mine, Lumber Mill, Blacksmith and Farm) which provide resources for the war effort. The team which reaches 2000 resources first wins the match. For the Alliance there is The League of Arathor NPC (non playable character) faction and for the Horde The Defilers.

I have a copy of the original Arathi Basin PvP trailer produced by Blizzard Entertainment in or around 2004 and have uploaded it to youtube.

There are many strategies to win an Arathi Basin match. Some believe holding the Blacksmith located in the middle of the map holds the key. Others believe playing a defensive match once your team has captured 3 bases is best. My favourite way to to win Arathi Basin to to play offensively, even when your team has more bases. This usually forces the opposing team to defend, even when you have the advantage. As they say, ‘the best defense is a good offence’.

Over the years I have won and lost countless Arathi Basin games. I have found that there is no single superior strategy to win. Simply hold more bases than your opponent for more than half of the duration of the game and you will win. React quickly as a team, defend and fight for the flag of each base, use crowed control (stunning/immobilizing enemy players) and you will most likely win. Here is a recording of me playing a game with my Rogue. As a side note, this is my first ever public Youtube video.

Moving forward, I plan on continuing to casually PvP and maybe even reach exhaulted status with The League of Arathor. I will also endeavour to write about the other two Classic WoW battlegrounds, Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley. Classic WoW PvP has been a very different experience than Vanilla WoW which is something I also feel compelled to write about.


Snooker Nation

Snooker Nation March 2020

March has been an exceptionally good month for me in Snooker Nation, winning 3 of the 4 matches played and also scoring my second maximum break of 147. Jason managed to claw a match back at the end of the month making us equal in matches won. I am however technically in the lead on frame difference, which is a much better position than I was at the beginning of February, being down 4 matches to 1.

06/03/2020 – Match 70

This has been one of the best Snooker Nation matches I have ever played. Not only did I win 6 frames to 2 in a best of 11, but I also walked away with 4 centuries, including maximum break of 147 in the 4th frame. It’s the second time I have scored a maximum break, the first time being last September. The other centuries were 119 in the 1st frame, 131 in the 3rd and 110 in the 8th and final frame. Jason also scored a century break of his own of 126 in the 7th frame making it 5 centuries in 8 frames between us.

20/03/2020 – Match 71

My win streak continues winning 6 frames to 5 in a best of 11. There were two century breaks this week, 100 in the 2nd frame and 102 in the 4th frame, both belonging to me. With this win I take the lead on frame difference. I just hope my luck doesn’t run out just as I start to get ahead.

26/03/2020 – Match 72

Another victory sees me take the lead on matches won for the first time this season. This time I won 6 frames to 4 in a best of 11 with another two centuries under my belt. 102 in the 1st frame and 101 in the 10th and final frame. My win streak has been ongoing for a while now, hopefully it will last and I can build up a comfortable lead.

27/03/2020 – Match 73

Jason was able to end my win streak, beating me 6 frames to 5 in a best of 11. At one stage I was winning 5 frames to 3 so it was good show of Jason to win 3 frames in a row to claim victory and put us back level on matches won this season. There were two century breaks, 121 in the 7th frame belonging to me and a massive 141 in the 8th frame belonging to Jason which equals his highest break so far this season.

Season 2 (January – June 2020) statistics

Played Won Frames Won Centuries Highest Break
Copper 12 6 59 16 147
Jason 12 6 57 15 141


WoW Loot Systems

WoW: Loot Systems

I have been putting some thought behind the different World of Warcraft loot systems and have been wondering which is best. My guild, Inspire, employ the EP/GP (Effort Points/Gear Points) system for distributing loot with some very light loot council influence. No system is perfect, but I believe the system we use potentially causes the least upset and argument which can only be a good thing.

If a guild were to allow players to roll (a 100 sided dice) for each piece of loot, it could see players who are new to the guild get some high value loot without putting in much effort. It would be upsetting to attend a raid multiple times with your eye on a piece of loot and work with your guild to improve only for a newcomer to get it first time without putting in anything like the same level of effort. It also opens up the possibility of someone who is simply lucky getting a high proportion of loot and vice versa. This however is easily the best system to use when raiding as part of a random group of players rather than as a guild.

Using a loot council system has the potential of being the most fair system, where the officers decide among themselves who should get each piece of loot depending on the needs of the guild and the merit of each player. While I like all of my officers and trust them, this system could open up the possibility of an abuse of power, awarding loot to themselves before anyone else and then their favourites in the guild. It could also swing the other way, where a decent, good set of officers like mine could feel reluctant to award themselves loot, even when they deserve it, for fear the guild would see it as favouritism. Most of the time loot council systems also allow a selection of players to roll on items, especially if the loot is rather common or not BiS (best in slot).

There is also the DKP (Dragon Kill Points) system, which I do not know much about. My understanding of this is players are awarded points for attending raids on time and killing raid bosses. Guild’s might also remove points from players for being late, having a poor attendance, forgetting consumables and making the same mistakes. Players would use their points to bid for loot with each other. This seems like a reasonably fair system but it has a flaw where players could bid very low for loot which other players no longer need but had previously paid a high amount for it. For example, an item would drop which several people want and the person who gets the item ends up paying 50 points for it. Another time that same item would drop but only 1 person needs it that day and they bid just 1 point and would get it. There could be more to this system, I have never actually been part of a guild who has employed it.

The EP/GP system is similar to DKP in that players are awarded EP for attending raids on time and for killing raid bosses. It’s also possible to punish players by removing EP in the same way but I don’t believe Inspire has ever done this. GP however is given when players obtain a piece of loot, each piece is given a different GP value depending on the quality (and therefor demand) of the item. Loot priority (PR) is established by dividing a player’s EP by their GP. A player with 500 EP and 100 GP for example will have a PR of 5. The player with the highest PR will get loot but their PR will reduce, for example, if a piece of loot is 50 GP the player would now have 500 EP and 150 GP if they get it and their PR will lower to 3.33. Each week the officers reduce everyone’s EP and GP value by a percentage (in our case 10%) which doesn’t change anyone’s PR but does prevent players from stockpiling too much EP and will slow down the rate in which players will gain overall PR. It is usually good practice therefor, for players to obtain loot where possible so that their overall PR rating maintains steady growth. This is not always the case though, with players refusing to take loot for GP, even when that loot is better for them. This is because they are holding out for something better and usually BiS. I myself am guilty of this but without thinking I have been stung by taking loot for GP which was better than what I had but was not BiS. I then found myself replacing that item relatively quickly and obtained even more GP for an item which filled the same gear slot. Because of this, potentially a lot of loot will go to waste, especially loot from older raids. Thankfully, some loot is offered for off-spec where players are allowed to roll for loot which doesn’t suit their characters specialization. For example, I play a rogue who has specialized in using swords as weapons, if a dagger, fist weapon or mace were to drop, I would not need it but if nobody else wants it for their main specialization, I might be able to get it without paying the GP cost. I have been rather unfortunate in not getting good swords to use, an officer even commented recently that my gear is starting to look good but my weapons are still poor. Even though I want to use swords, have specialized my character to use swords and play it as though it uses swords, I still use a dagger in my main hand. This is because it is better than what I currently have regardless of my specialization and play-style. I hope this doesn’t annoy or upset my fellow guild mates who also have the the same dagger but paid GP for it. I fully intend to replace it and pay GP for a sword at the earliest opportunity, even if the sword is not BiS.

My experience with Classic WoW so far has been that people aren’t quite so heavily driven by the desire to obtain loot. Yes, of course, people wish to get better items and improve their character, but a lot of people seem equally happy just to play with a bunch of like-minded people and clear end-game content. That wasn’t my experience for Vanilla WoW 15 or so years ago, where everyone seemed to care for nothing and nobody apart from the items they wanted. This could be because of the company I kept back then but I also feel the Classic WoW community is in general a more relaxed and polite set of gamers than the days of Vanilla WoW. Whatever it is, I am grateful for Inspire and the people in it.


WoW March Update

WoW: March Update

I feel as though my progress in Classic World of Warcraft has been better these past 4 weeks. The first thing I should mention is that I finally got the Hand of Justice trinket which I wrote about in my previous update. I would like to thank my guild mates Grominx, Gurkis and Eremir (Petrovich) for helping me get it. I couldn’t be more happy.

WoW Classic Hand of Justice

Now Blackwing Lair (BWL) is available, there are many more opportunities to obtain loot and I have been given Bloodfang Boots and Bloodfang Gloves as part of the tier 2 Bloodfang Armour set. I am very pleased to have these items but I have still been unable to upgrade my weapons, something I have been hoping to achieve for a while now.

My guild, Inspire, have been clearing BWL consistently since it was launched 4 weeks ago. In the first week we were unable to clear it in one evening, mostly because the entrance to the raid was blocked by other players and in part because it was a big learning curve for everyone. It was a great honour to have been there killing the bosses for the first time with my guild mates, but, I am disappointed that I was unable to attend a second raid to kill the final two bosses for the first time. Since then however, we have been able to kill all of the bosses in one evening and have even completed both BWL and Molten Core (MC) in the same evening with time to spare. I am very proud of Inspire and of my participation.

After the first time our guild raided BWL, our raid and guild leader, Baconbits (aka Bacon or Axelbanger) decided to step down as raid leader and take a break from the game. He explained that he wasn’t enjoying the game and had been finding himself making sacrifices, leading raids and the guild when he didn’t really want to and that he had discussed his departure with the other officers before the announcement. I like Bacon and I was sad to see him step down. At the same time I am happy that he has because I would hate to think that Bacon, or anyone else, would do things they didn’t want to do just to keep me and others happy. Hopefully, if and when Bacon is ready, he will make a return to the game. I doubt Bacon reads my blog, but if he does I really want him to know that I am genuinely thankful for the role he played.

The other officers have taken over what Bacon did exceptionally well. I am especially thankful to Nopartentsguy (aka NPG) who is our new raid leader, Dawn, who now looks after the guild bank and Mexcoo, a new officer, who has been loot master. NPG is easily one of the best raid leaders I have ever had the pleasure of raiding with. Dawn, who already does much for the guild, has been great at keeping the guild in the loop of what’s happening with guild property and Mexcoo has done an amazing job at managing the loot and our EP/GP (effort points/gear points) system. I would also like to thank Pallydude who has been a great help during raids and all the officers who do work behind the scenes to make Inspire a fun and successful guild.

Moving forward, I have set myself a new list of personal goals to work on.

Gain Exhaulted with Timbermaw Hold
Gain Exhaulted with Argent Dawn
Gain Exhaulted with Stormpike Guard
Get 300 skill in fishing
Get 300 skill in bow
Get 300 skill in gun

I also have a wish-list of items, some of which I already have.

Bloodfang Hood
Prestor’s Talisman of Connivery
Bloodfang Spaulders
Cloak of Firemaw
Bloodfang Chestpiece
Bloodfang Bracers
Bloodfang Pants
Bloodfang Gloves
Bloodfang Belt
Bloodfang Boots
Band of Accuria
Master Dragonslayer’s Ring
Hand of Justice
Drake Fang Talisman
Chromatically Tempered Sword (Main hand weapon)
OR
Vis’kag the Bloodletter (Optional, 2nd best main hand)
Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight (Off hand weapon)
OR
Brutality Blade (Optional, 2nd best offhand weapon)
Striker’s Mark

Other than that, I want to continue to enjoy my Classic WoW journey as I have been but, at the same time, I want to try to find some time to play some other games as well which in all honesty, hasn’t been easy for me.
