Bloody Grind

As I slowly collect the last ten items for my Bigger Bag achievement, I’ve started working on something quite different. The Censer of Eternal Agony was sitting in my bag for months. I bought it solely for purchasing the Vengeful Porcupette but I wasn’t too keen on farming 100x Bloody Coins so there it sat, taking up one precious bag spot.

One night, I was looking though my achievements when I came across the Emissary of Ordos for an easy 10pts. All I had to do was use the censer. Geez, if only I knew that earlier. So I parked myself in one of our camp tents not really knowing what to expect. Once I had the achievement, I tried clicking off the buff which didn’t work. Maybe I could use our flight master to knock off the buff… nope. He was now neutral and would have attacked if I had clicked him. Turns out I had to kill myself so I aggroed the nearest crab.

The next achievement required 10x Bloody Coins so I asked Coolidge for help. He agreed to being killed once per day over the next ten days.


Here’s the series of achievements for anyone wondering. I doubt I’ll be getting any further but I guess you never know.

Name Achievement
Emissary of Ordos Use the Censer of Eternal Agony obtained from Speaker Gulan on the Timeless Isle.
Candlekeeper Obtain 10 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Oathguard Obtain 100 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Kilnmaster Obtain 1000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher.
Fire-Watcher Obtain 2000 Bloody Coins as an Emissary of Ordos or Ordon Fire-Watcher. Grants the Fire-Watcher title.

According to GuildOx only 0.062% have the Fire-Watcher achievement, a slight improvement to Going to Need a Bigger Bag at 0.045% but you know what’s really annoying? Spending months on the Isle only to find the person you’re grouped with gets the item – TWICE while you’re still waiting for one! Seriously, times like this I wish you could trade it when the kill counts for both of you.

Come on RNG!

Timesink Isle Update

A few days ago, I was killing Primal Stalkers on the Timeless Isle when a Pristine Stalker Hide finally dropped. Talk about exciting, especially when it’s been almost three weeks since the last rare drop. Then today I was killing some of the harder yaungol with Cool when a Blizzard Stone popped up on group loot from one of the Chanters. That makes two weather stones so far.

Outstanding items

I just love watching this list shrink. If only it happened more often though.

Still Waiting

Another month has passed and I can honestly say that I’ve spent far too much time collecting those items on the Timeless Isle. I guess you could say I’m a glutton of punishment so I’ll probably keep going until it’s done, whenever that is. Hopefully before the next expansion hits. If only I were joking.

After five weeks, I’ve only been able to knock off two more items from the list. The grub from Gu’chi (which I collected on an alt so didn’t count) and Captain Zvezdan’s Lost Leg, a drop from Rattleskew.

Now since I don’t need to farm Emperor Shaohao rep any more, it’s one less detour I need to worry about.

Here’s what remains.

and one last battle pet – the Spineclaw Crab which drops from the Monstrous Spineclaw. =/

I may end up like these guys in Conan’s Crypt

On a positive note, I have noticed something new since my Spelurk video. Mushroom stools and Fishing chairs also work!
