Going for the drake achievement — sort of

Got 3 fel eggs this week: 1 Felglow Mana Ray mount, 1 Fel-Afflicted Skyfin pet, and

Now “the Exalted” … “the Beloved” next??

Slowly getting everyone completed with the Argus campaign

New toon: male blood elf protection paladin (going to go brewmaster monk for N&A) – almost level 40

Discussion: What makes you keep an alt? (@Cattarina and the “nursery of alts”)


More Ulduar achievements

Still can’t do XT. Tried on alts. Just bad luck.

Going to finish up Argus because I’ve neglected it too long.

New hunter pets on PTR for 7.3.5 – including ones obviously meant to be starter pets for new allied races

Nightborne: Manasaber

Highmountain Tauren: Great Eagle

Void Elf: Voidstalker

Lightforged Draenei: Lightforged Talbuk

Other hunter pets include beasts clearly from Argus, such as umbralfins, dustcloaks, and chitinbuks, and ones clearly associated with Silithus like silithids, flying hornets, scorpids, and spiders

Allied race racials: more complete data. (Speculate on best classes?)

Nightborne: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior

+15 to inscription=, increased magical damage by 1, access maili for 1.5 minutes (cooldown 10 minutes), A Force Shield that deals arcane damage and snares them by 50%, lasts 20 seconds (no info on cooldown), 1% magic resistance

Highmountain Tauren: Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior

charge that knocks down enemies for 1.5 seconds (2 minute cooldown), +15 to mining and faster mining, +1% to versatility, overall damage reduction by 330 (scale?) and increased chance to loot additional meat and fish.

Void Elf: Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior

1% reduction of shadow and arcane damage, “your abilities have a chance to empower you with the essence of the void” (?), reduces void storage and transmog costs by 50%, spell casts not delayed by taking damage, and a built-in rift teleportation similar to warlock gating (2 minute cooldown).

Lightforged Draenei: Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warrior

20% extra xp for killing demons, +10 to blacksmithing plus summoning a Forge of Light on demand, reduce holy damage by 1%, call down a strike of holy energy damaging enemies within 5 yards after 3 sec, and “erupt with light upon death, dealing holy damage to enemies and healing allies).

Speculation: Allied races are not going to be introduced in 7.3.5, but there are plenty of files being pushed to the servers about four of the six races, which gives Bliz the option of releasing them before the expansion. Thoughts?

From the Discord:

How to do less damage for raid achievements, without having to de-equip items or gear:

From @OPH on Discord: brought up there was a toy or shirt that used to exist that would reduce damage output by 90%. This is true. Whole Body Shrinka toy, which shrinks you down to a tiny size and does reduce your damage output to about 10% — lasts for 3 minutes but has a 30 minute cooldown.

Soft Foam Sword also allows you to “mortally wound” a trivial enemy, but it isn’t usable in dungeons or raids.

What else could be done? Came up with a cheap engineering solution even non-engineers can use.

Further discussion on queuing a Broken Shore class hall mission for Broken Shore Campaign –

@settlersrule said he was forced to take a 3 day elite mission because that was all that was available. Tips on how to manage this situation.

From Twitter: Going back to my report that the Murky world quest dismounts you when you fly over it, apparently it’s not just Murky, but any quest where you morph. @Frenzol informed me the wisp quest in Val’sharah does the same thing.
