A couple of months ago, I was excited to learn that there would be a new vendor at the Darkmoon Faire selling RP-quality Gilnean garb. I, along with others, was disappointed to find out that purchasing the new clothing is gender-restricted — female characters can only buy the “Noblewoman’s” clothing, whereas male characters can only buy the “Nobleman’s” clothing.

When I saw the Transmorphic Tincture in the list of potions my Alchemist could learn from her Garrison Profession hut, I wondered if perhaps Chester could be fooled…

Yep, Chester can be fooled, alright.

I discovered, alas, that the coloration of the Nobleperson’s clothing is gender-specific.

Noblewoman’s Finery & Skirt

But what if that fancy black coat is what I want a female banker to be able to wear? Argh!

With the WoW’s Tenth Anniversary event about to expire, I finally got around to doing 40-player Molten Core LFR. I got lucky with a group that managed to get through with a minimum of hassle and annoyance.

Naturally, that firey new hat also meant I needed a firey new Transmogrification kit to go with it — my first proper mix-and-match kit of the new expansion.

Molten Destruction

Crown of Destruction, Erupting Volcanic Mantle & Handwraps, Sha’tari Deadeye Vest, Stormleather Sash, Molten Earth Kilt, War Mace of Unrequited Love, Streamtalker Shield
If Baron Geddon had been kind enough to drop the Earthfury Epaulets on my way in for my mog kit photoshoot with Ragnaros 1.0, I’d have swapped out the T12 shoulders for the T1s. Alas, he didn’t, and I doubt that I’ll bother to continue farming for them.

considering the calendar

Hmm, hmm, let’s see here now…

Warlords of Draenor releases on November 13th.

The WoW 10th Anniversary event begins on November 21st.

Fall Semester classes end on December 8th.

Final Grades are due on December 15th.

Spring Semester classes begin on January 5th.

The WoW 10th Anniversary event ends on January 6th.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get Kamalia up to level 100 and into the “Maximum Molten Core” LFR during those last two weeks of December. It helps that we won’t have to do any traveling involving airplanes and extended stays at houses that are not our own dwelling place this year. Maybe I can even manage to take Kam to L100 MC LFR to get a fire hat from Ragnaros 3.0 as a birthday present to myself on December 28th…

Banners, Banners Everywhere!

Since I finished my little dragons, I’ve been working on this when I go to my ward Relief Society’s Tuesday morning sewing group. It’s been quite a fun little project. The finished banner is about six inches wide and ten inches long. The white crescent is two layers — otherwise, it wouldn’t have been opaque enough. The star and the pupil of the eye are embroidered on the felt. I’d like to do another little banner like this, though I probably won’t start the project until after my move later this summer. Of the city banners, the Ironforge banner seems like it would most easily translate into a felt-and-embroidery design.

Kinevra has always had a mind of her own. A few months ago, I sent her to the Argent Tournament to complete my collection of Tournament mounts. While she was working on that task, her own end-of-the-OLRG-evening portal roulette sent her to Tol Barad a couple of times… and she started thinking that maybe she wanted the Spectral Steed, too. So when she finished up at the Tournament, off she went to Tol Barad.

I was still on a PvP server during most of Cataclysm, and with Tol Barad being a designated PvP zone, I just said NO to doing the dailies there. I never even set foot on Tol Barad except for a few times when my guild was raiding Baradin Hold and I was summoned to the meeting stone.

But Kinevra thought, hey, it’s an expansion later, and I’m on a PvE server, so I want to at least check it out.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that doing the dailies didn’t auto-flag me for PvP. I’d kind of expected that it would. After a few days of doing the dailies at the base camp, I decided to go to the battleground side during a time when the Alliance controlled it and check out the dailies there. I’d thought I might be auto-flagged for PvP just by going over there, or by doing the quests there, but again, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I wasn’t.

An expansion later, on a PvE server, Tol Barad ain’t so bad.

Argent Tournament = DONE!

At long last, I have all the Argent Tournament mounts. I have as many of the pets as I am interested in acquiring. Kaprikka has the sky blue and white Silver Covenant tabard to match her sky blue and white complexion. Unless another of my Alliance characters decides that she needs the Silver Covenant tabard (Hordies can get the Sunreaver tabard from the Isle of Thunder instead), or someone decides that she needs the Crusader tabard (don’t go getting any ideas now, girls!), I am DONE with the Tournament!

tick, tock

Ironically, all my nattering on about how much I dislike the Timeless Isle caused me to go spend some more time there yesterday evening. Writing about it reminded me that I had not yet done either the Timeless Isle or the Path of the Last Emperor with my most recently-dinged 90, Kaelinda — who reached that magic level three months ago. Furthermore, with Kaprikka closing in on level 85 and well on her way to 90, I needed to restock on cloth Timeless armor tokens.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was in the process of applying for full-time academic jobs. Later this week, I have an interview for one of them! It’s just the first-round phone/Skype interview, and, from the number of timeslot options I was offered, it sounds like they’re considering eight, maybe ten, candidates — so no guarantees that I will actually get the job. Still, this small career progress is making the clock tick a little louder on getting my Warlock, Rogue, and Alliance (Draenei) character leveled to 90 not just before Warlords but also before my Real Life potentially becomes much busier. Time to buckle down and not let myself get distracted by things like brand new alts…
