This is an achievement I was itching to get as I loved the idea of having two priests at max level, like something out of Alias (one of my favourite shows). So with Cymre as my main, I knew that my Alliance priest would be a given as to who to level up on this side – not that I had many choices anyway.
As usual, we levelled while questing in Dread Wastes, skipping a lot of quests along the way but that’s ok since we’ve played through them all before. I am looking forward to working through Operation: Shieldwall though, having read a few blog posts about it but I suspect we’ll take our time with it.
To celebrate my double achievement, I couldn’t decide which mount to use so I selected my two favourite shots.
My main focus now is to generate enough gold to buy flying in Pandaria although I don’t have my epic flying yet either. Here’s hoping all my auctions sell :P
While I was hanging around in Stormwind yesterday, I decided to check out Bizmo’s Brawlpub – the Alliance equivalent of the Brawl’gar Arena in Org. I knew it was in the Deeprun Tram, as I’d seen the raid alerts come up as soon as I enter the zone. However, from there I was a bit lost as to where to go. Luckily, Veluxia was on so I sent her a “Pst” asking where it was. Speaking of which, guess who spied me in the AH earlier… Turns out it was under the platform in the tram so as soon as you enter the area from the Dwarvern District, head down the ramp and you’ll see the underground entrance.
When I first entered the area, the place looked really familiar from some of the strategy videos I’d seen. But check out the decor… it has a totally different vibe compared to ours on Horde. I mean you could have a couple of drinks there with friends or even a candlelight dinner – if you don’t mind all the blood and violence in the background.
Some of the flavour NPCs are quite interesting too. I mean, check out this bouncer – he snarls! I thought they all did that but when I checked, I couldn’t find another one who did.
Then there’s the Quartermaster with his pet and Keith “The Party” Westin and his Rhinestone Sunglasses as part of the table entertainment.
All-in-all, it was nice to see the differences compared to the one I’m used to.
When the replica sets came out for our old PVP titles, I was excited about mogging my beloved Rank 10 outfit. It’s been a while since I did that but even though I’m still levelling in Pandaria, I decided to get my old set out again to match my old Lieutenant Commander title.
Then in Cata, I was envious when I found out the Alliance would have such an awesome looking Guild perk at 25; so I did the next best thing and tamed Sambas on my hunter. Last year, I was able to purchase the Reins of the Golden King from the Guild I was in at the time but how nice does it look with my PVP set?
However, when I was going through my mount journal yesterday, I noticed something I had not expected. A while ago, Tome had written about her Operation: Shieldwall
Grand Gryphon which looked so gorgeous, I was tempted to level my priest up just to do the same thing. But I thought I would have to level up my Shieldwall rep just to get that mount and the Grand Armored Gryphon as well. But guess what was waiting for me to get out and ride…
That’s right baby, no grinding necessary since I’m already exalted with the Horde equivalent! Woot!
