The news that the price of Mogu Runes of Fate had been dropped by more than half its inital value to the much more manageable 1000 Timeless Coins apiece was most welcome. Even more welcome, however, was not needing more than the three Mogu Runes of Fate I’d already purchased. Last week, I got two of the three items I still wanted, and one of them was on the normal roll, so I didn’t have to spend a Mogu Rune of Fate on that boss and had one left over for this week. This week, spending that last Mogu Rune of Fate won me that last piece of gear. Hurrah!

I love how the coloration of this set of armor repeats the color scheme of the great mogu edifices in the Vale. It’s like this armor is the imperial livery of the personal guard of the mogu emperor/dynasty who first built Mogu’shan Palace and its satellites, the Shrines of Two Moons and Seven Stars. I’m even happier that this coloration of the T15 Warrior gear was the LFR version and thus within my reach. I just wish I’d been able to get it all before the destruction of the Vale so that my screenshots could have been prettier.
Keija’s primary purpose for leveling to 90 is now fulfilled. She’s not quite ready to retire and spend the rest of the expansion just making Living Steel Belt Buckles when my other characters need them, however. I’ve played her almost exclusively as Fury ever since she learned Titan’s Grip, only using Arms when she’s had a polearm that was significantly better than her other weapons, because why have just one big honking two-handed weapon when you can have two? I’d like to give Arms another try, though, which means acquiring a +Str polearm — and the most readily, reliably available such item is the one from the Timeless Isle.
Of all my level 90s, only Kamalia and Keija have even gone to the Timeless Isle yet, and I haven’t really spent all that much time there with them. This week, I was pleased to see that the jumping puzzles had reset. Following a tip from Tome, I turned on RP-walking and pointed my camera straight down when I did the tightrope puzzle, and I completed it on the first try! I anticipate that I will take Keija to the Timeless Isle just one evening a week, to collect the six treasure chests that respawn weekly and as many other coins as she happens to find along the way, until she has enough Timeless Coins to buy the +Str polearm.
Keija has finished collecting her T15 set just in time. As I was looking through leather gear last week while making monk outfits, Katewatha sighed longingly over the vest and pants of the T14 Monk set. Furthermore, Karaelia would like to have the Scimitar of Seven Stars… if I can get up the nerve to tank LFR, seeing as how I haven’t even tanked any Heroics in LFD since dinging 90… maybe I will heal instead and just set my loot-spec to Prot.
