Shiny new mount and other goodies

Reins of the Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher

Despite all my bitching about Sindragosa, my 10 man team did manage to get All You Can Eat on the weekend and a few of us got our Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquishers. It’s a nice looking mount, but I think I still enjoy the look of the proto-drakes more.

I got some more goodies this weekend as Rotface finally dropped Trauma. It gave a huge spell power boost over the normal one. The only thing that I’ve been having terrible luck with is bracers. I’m still wearing Bracers of the Autumn Willow. Neither heroic Valithria nor Halion will drop their bracers for me. Jerks.

My quest to get 9000 achievements is moving along slowly. I’ve gotten exalted with one more faction, the Icecrown meta netted me about 85 points, I defeated Captain Skyshatter (which was kinda difficult) and defeated someone in a mounted duel (they totally let me win). I’m up to 8610 now, but I’m getting tired of dailies.

I’m taking a little break from WoW this weekend to go up to my parent’s cottage. Lounging around on a boat with a glass of wine and a good book sounds just about perfect right now.

  1. Congrats!

    All You Can Eat isn't that bad! Also flight form 5 lyfe. =]

    • Thanks!

      I still hate All You Can Eat and never want to do it again ๐Ÿ˜›

      I love flight form. There are so many awesome things about druids, but flight form is one of the best. I like to use my special flying mounts every once in a while though so they don't feel wasted.

  2. Grats on Captain Skyshatter and your Frostbrood Vanquisher. I got so frustrated with Skyshattter I ended up having to get a paladin friend to help me, it was either that or jump up and down on the keyboard. There should be more quests like that.

    • Thank you! I looked up the Skyshattered achievement on wowhead and read so many comments about how easy it is now. I didn't find it easy at all. Even if I wasn't getting hit with any bombs, he always managed to get just far enough out of range to despawn because I had no idea which direction he was going to go. There was much cursing involved in getting this done.

  3. Grats! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Skyshatter isn't nearly as bad on a druid as it is on any other class…because if you fall, you can at least shift to flight form to prevent death! I remember stripping down naked on my shaman while I was doing it with her. Arrgh!

    I still keep my skyshatter whip in the bank on both Beru and Mynn…just can't seem to toss it out ๐Ÿ™‚ I still think that you should have gotten a title for doing it. I would I liked Iceman Beruthiel or Maverick Beruthiel ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • The bombs don't knock you off your mount anymore, they just stun you momentarily. I still did them in flight form though (even though getting hit knocks you out) for the 310% speed. Flying mounts are turned into 280% netherwings which seem so slow.

      My biggest problem was not knowing where he was going. He also had a tendency to hit himself with his own bombs and I'd fly right past him.

      A title for the achievement would be awesome.

  4. Wow, congratulations. I see the bracer curse has spread from my blog to yours. I'm starting to disbelief the existence of any bracers in Wrath at all.

    Also the mount looks fantastic. I have one goofy looking bright blue minty fresh protodrake… because he uses Colgate Sensitive.

    • Thank you. I'm still hopeful bracers will drop for me one day. I don't even care which ones (as long as they aren't cloth – eww).

      It's good that your proto-drake understands the importance of dental hygiene. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Congrats!! You've definitly earned it. ๐Ÿ™‚
