The semester being over, I took some time off last week to play.
On Monday, I finished Nagrand with my Alliance Mage.
Yrel has definitely grown on me as I’ve gone through the Alliance storyline. I thought she was a bit bubbleheaded at first, but when she pranked Thaelin back in Nagrand, I was glad to see that her growing seriousness and responsibility hadn’t completely extinguished the playful part of her personality.
That leaves Kaylynda with only one major To Do item: Silver Proving Grounds, followed by a trip to UBRS. My confidence that I’ll actually get that done, however, might be judged from the fact that I’ve reactivated Millhouse Manastorm in Kamalia’s Garrison…
During the middle of the week, I did a bunch of things with a bunch of characters, with the primary objective (which I accomplished) of getting the rest of my active alts (the ones with whom I would like to do Artifact weapon questlines in Legion) who are in Draenor at least to level 96.
Friday was Kerisa’s big day!
I had stocked up enough Relics of Rukhmar from follower missions that Kerisa could get to Exalted with the Arakkoa Outcasts as soon as she finished their questline. I had forgotten that I actually had to get the zone achievement for Spires of Arak to get Talon Guard Kurekk, though, so then I had to go finish establishing Axefall and check out Admiral Taylor’s Garrison and clean up Pinchwhistle Point before I could do this:
I still want a minor glyph — or book or codex or whatever the cosmetic minor glyphs are getting coverted into in Legion — that will make Moonkin form look like a High Arakkoa.
Back at Hallow’s End, I picked up a Seer’s Invitation and sent it to Kerisa. When she used it in her level 2 Garrison, however, nothing happened. I was pleased to see that when she upgraded her Garrison to level 3, the invited arakkoa seer finally showed up:
Kerisa’s not quite sure how she feels about the ghostly guests he brought with him, though.
Kerisa kept a Lumber Mill up just long enough to capture a Botani to study —
— then replaced it with a Trading Post to help her reputation grinding in Tanaan to pick up the third Saberon follower and fourth Arakkoa follower. She’s kind of fascinated by the races that are similar to Druid shapeshifts: bird-people, cat-people, tree-people.
Now that my Balance Druid has reached level 100, I have capped eight characters out of the sixteen I plan to carry forward into Legion. Seven of the remaining eight are already in Draenor. Lagging far behind is my Feral Druid, who is currently in Outland. I’m also considering reviewing the DEHTA storyline in Borean Tundra with her — and then she’ll get the Legion pre-purchase boost up to 100.
