According to GuildOx #34 Server. [Even] #9 Horde side. [Up 1]
Picked up a bucket load of achievements yesterday. That puts me at a total of 15185. Finally got some work done on archaeology and some Thunder Isle. Most notably got Glory of the Cataclysm Hero and the dragon that comes with it.
Dinged 80 on my priest. I’m ready to start gearing up for a Herald attempt. I was looking it up and the achievement says ”Defeat Algalon the Observer in 10-player mode at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing any equipment with an item level higher than is available in 10-player Ulduar.” Now I read this as ‘you have to be 80 and everyone in raid has to be ilvl less than 226.’ and thought does this mean I can get some undergeared and/or nekkid 90s to help me smash this guy and ding this achievement? I asked the one person I know that runs regular heralds and she had never tried and didn’t know. So can anyone save me a bit of time and tell me is it possible to run 90s and still get the 80 the achievement?
Dinged 90. I was disappointed again. There seemed to be no differences in the story lines. I though jade forest would definitely be but both sides found then lost the prince. Four Winds, Krasarang, Townlong, Dread Wastes and half of Kun Lai are all faction neutral. The half of Kun Lai that isn’t was just a different shanty town to pick up and turn the same quests in at.
A little back story. I was smacking around some starter quests in Dread Wastes when I spotted a rare. Now I have the achievement for killing all of them and they give no story so I kept walking and did some quests. On my way back to turn in the quests I passed by him again and both him a the blood elf that he was fighting were almost dead. I figured I’d be a nice guy (cause I am) and taunted the rare and started tanking it.
How it should have went: The rare dies. Elf gets the loot, thanks me and we part ways.
How it did go: The elf stood in bad stuff and died. I stood there only doing enough to survive waiting for the elf to run back to his corpse. He didn’t even release. The rare eventually died. He releases, gets his body back and /rudes me.
I shrugged this off and went to continue on my questing but as soon a I turned around I was greeted with a duel request. As soon as I hit no I got another one. I let this go in hopes he would get bored and wander off. It didn’t work. He flagged himself and stood here my quest stuff was. Did I kill him? No. Should I have? Probably. Could I have? Debatable.
I decided since he took time out of his day to be an ass I could take a little time out of mine to waste his. So at first we just stood there having what I could only assume was a staring contest. About a minute in he decided a conversation might be nice and started to blab, but being on the opposite faction I couldn’t understand a word he said. So to make nice (again) I held up my own half of our double one sided chat. After about five minutes after we started he must have got bored cause he left. Thus I won the staring contest!
TLDR: Don’t be an ass. And if you want to waste someone’s time, make sure you’ve got more to waste then they do.
