We waited for Warlords

Since October I’ve been keeping a ToDo list here – see Category: Waiting for expansion for all the posts – mostly so that I’d get stuff done whilst we waited for Warlords to be released.

With Draenor so close, how well have I done?

Soloing in a 6.0 World – Personal Experience

In Soloing in a 6.0 world I went over some of the older raids which are soloable now.

I thought I’d give a quick update from my experiences with actually running the raids over a number of different characters.

Details, details!

Waiting for Warlords: progress report, 2014-10-27

Whilst we wait for Warlords – Progress report update!

Most of this week has been spent soloing old raids for rare drop mounts – the changes in 6.0.2 made more bosses accessible to more of my characters.

Progress so far!

Soloing in a 6.0 world

Whilst people have always soloed older raids – I’ve farmed a number of rare drop raid mounts already – one of the concerns with the item squish Warlords brought in was how easy it would be to solo older content.

Blizzard did say they’d address this – they didn’t want to stop people soloing old raids for transmog, mounts, older legendaryies.

So how successful have they been?

Well, from the number of times Rhonin keeps on going about our lives being worth living in Dalaran – he’s yelling it almost non-stop – I think a lot of people are running older raids!

… apparently there is a queue of people waiting for Rhonin to yell about the defiance of our very makers before they can send reply code alpha

For some personal experiences with different classes doing this, please see Soloing in a 6.0 World – Personal Experience for how a variety of different classes and gear levels faired.

My experiences farming for mounts

Update: Enchants in 6.0.2 for shadow priests

In Enchants in 6.0.2 for shadow priests I looked at the enchants from previous expansions which ended up being more powerful than Pandaria enchants after the squish of 6.0.2

In that post I did note that it felt wrong that this could be done and that I’d expect these to be fixed.

In build 19041 – which is about to go to the beta and PTR – has nerfs to pretty much all of the enchants I listed on that post. It was fun whilst it lasted, but it couldn’t last forever.

… that said I’ve found more BoP enchants which drop from raids for my enchanter to farm up. Even if they’re nerfed, I’m still a completionist!

See the WoWHead news post for full details of the changes.
