A chronicle of my endless quest to collect everything orange in the game. Why? Well, why not?
Not getting Atiesh while I still could is one of my great regrets as far as this game is concerned, incidentally. The Naxxramas rework announcement took me completely by surprise, and by the time I found a consistent group to run the original Naxx with every week it was too late — there was a queue for Atiesh, and as a relative newcomer to the group I didn’t have enough priority.
Ditto for the Black Qiraji mount and the Scarab Lord title, for that matter (hey, the mount was orange, it totally counts). I did complete the Ahn’Qiraj scepter quest chain, but far, far too late. Ah, well.
✔ Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros
Earned on my druid in 2010 (June 10).
✘ Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
Nope, not yet. I have one binding on my mage, but my lack of desire to go farm Molten Core again at this stage cannot be understated.
✘ Warglaives of Azzinoth
My warrior has the off-hand Warglaive, but I’ve not been to Black Temple in quite a while. I should probably start farming it again.
✔ Thori’dal, the Stars’ Fury
Earned on my hunter (obviously) in 2011 (June 23).
✘ Val’anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings
Currently on 23 fragments out of 30. Finding Ulduar 25 PuGs is surprisingly hard, and soloing the place, though I can do it, is excruciatingly boring.
Earned on my paladin in 2012 (December 19). I love the irony. Might get it on my death knight as well eventually, but she hasn’t done the infusion quests, which are such a huge pain…
✔ Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest
Earned on my druid in 2014 (January 15). I’d been about 50 Essences and the Heart short of finishing the last stage since before Mists of Pandaria landed. My mage is collecting Embers, but she’s still 85 and I am honestly not sure I want to see the inside of Firelands ever again anytime soon (with the exception of getting Alysrazor to cough up her mount).
✘ Fangs of the Father
I have no rogue. Or rather, I do, but she’s level 40. I’ll either get her to 90 before Warlods of Draenor, or the “free level 90” preorder will do it for me. I’ll figure out how to get myself the daggers at that point. Considering this is going to be an excruciatingly long grind, I might just move my rogue to my second account (or roll a brand new one to boost) and pair this with farming myself up an Invincible.
✔✔ Shroud of the Celestials
Earned on my warrior in 2013 (December 20) and on my druid in 2014 (January 23).
