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.
Prestor’s Talisman of Connivery
Cloak of Firemaw
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.
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.
