After the Underpowered Death Knight finally dinged 100 during Pilgrim’s Bounty last year, I decided that it was time to take a break from the in-game holidays. Of course, I did need to do a little bit of the Draenor Winter Veil stuff — just enough to get decorations for Kamalia’s Garrison and to stash away a set of decoration boxes for the Alliance Mage to use when she finally reached level 100. Since then, however, I’ve been quite successful at ignoring the in-game holidays.
Yesterday, though, it occurred to me that it would be appropriate to observe Pirates’ Day by taking the Rogue out to get the Outlaw Artifact. Alas, real life interfered in the form of a pile of GenChem exams that needed to be graded*. By the time I got the exam scores totalled and recorded, it was late and I had a nasty headache. I did take the Rogue to Booty Bay to get Petey, emergency pirate disguises, and the book of pirate insults, but getting her Artifact will have to wait for another time.
Today, Brewfest begins. A few years back, Kamalia joined the Brew of the Month club just to finish up the Brewfest meta-achievement so that my Monks could use the Brewmaster title. I’m getting tired of having my mailbox cluttered up with brews, so this year, she needs to do Brewfest so that she can obtain the Angry Letter and leave the Brew of the Month club.
Then when Hallow’s End comes, the Death Knight will want to do one day of the Draenor Hallow’s End quests so that she can leave her Garrison permanently decorated with glowing pumpkins. She’s still giving the Alliance Mage crusty looks for taking the pumpkin box that I had originally saved for her.
With new crafted Winter Veil clothes in the offing, I need to think about getting one or the other of my Tailors out to the Broken Isles and leveling up her skill before that holiday rolls around.
And the Underpowered Death Knight has been hinting that as long as she’s still going to be featured with a portrait on my Characters page, because of her special coloration and all, she wants to be leveled just to 101 — just enough to pull her above the crowd of my other Retired alts who don’t get their portraits on my Characters page anymore — which means doing fishing & cooking dailies in Thunder Bluff and making the rounds of the holidays….
* I make a point of getting exams graded and returned as quickly as possible, and my students definitely appreciate it. Lab reports, however, are another story…
