I was just about Honored before I unlocked Shado-Pan dailies. I hit revered today - I missed a few days of Golden Lotus early on, so am a bit behind.

Stepped out of the Vale to farm some quick mobs for my Wikky's Whistle and I come back to someone killing Urgolax. I asked if they'd invite me and they didn't say a word, but they died because they're terrible. I invited them after they rezzed since it became my kill and I finished Glorious! aw yiss

I was a little amused they needed both the drops though. You won't invite me, you die, but you'll take the loot from me after I'm nice enough to invite you.

No good deed goes unpunished.
Specially around the daily areas.

I run as Ret with RF on so I keep aggro over my Wife who plays as a priest and I have had numerous people tag mobs then drag them into my AoE so that I get threat, then they run off to kill other things. Or wait until I attack something then run in to loot the quest item underneath the mob.

I've had people do that to me too when I'm swiping a big group, but I just shadowmeld and watch them die/get in one hit and go kill more mobs like they did to me.

Or the trillium node from under the mob I just Repented...
Seriously, you feel it's early x-pack - the asshats are out in force.

Success: the hit/exp cap is almost reached - I just need the valor shoulders and I'll be done on that side. I also realised that even though they're mostly equal in value, you need so much expertise you should mostly focus on exp/something stuff, and reforge to hit if necessary.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I dont see any difference with late cata tbh :p

My success: Took me "only" 10 runs to get the strength ring from Headless Horseman. Now for the helm... Bets are open.

My monk gearing has gone pretty well!

In two days my lovely GM has crafted me the epic chest and gives, I got the HH ring in the second attempt, quest reward boots from Sha, heroic upgrades for back, ring, both weapons and belt... then into LFR for a weapon upgrade and nice legs too.

Hit and (soft) expertise capped and now pumping up haste. Glad I won't be being carried in Sunday's raid, in gear terms at least.

I've actually given up trying for rares and the associated achievements. On my server, it seems like 90s are out camping them (you go leet dude, taking out a rare 4 levels below you. :roll: ) and not interested in folks asking for an invite to help out.

Only ones being camped on my server are the ones with useful drops.. (peace pipe, fishing trinket, etc)

Gratz. Did you use "the turtle trick" or get the tokens by normal methods.

Guildie of mine has farmed hundreds of stacks of turtles in the last two days... A little ridiculous but I'm not going to complain as he has bought the guild tons of the rice/pepper/soy sauce and made enough feasts for at least this entire tier of raiding for those who don't want to grind the mats for the 300(450) food with the tokens from the repeatable. Also as a side effect there are enough leg enchants probably for the rest of the tier and hundreds of golden lotus for flasks from the spirits and leather collected while farming the turtle meat.

In before respawn or huge drop rate nerf.

I do not know this "turtle" method, I find mindlessly kill farming extremly boring so from your description I wouldn't have done it any way. I fished a bunch of stuff while waiting for guildies to run heroics with, used tokens from my main and my alts, alt paladin got 11 tokens from doing the intro cooking quests, and I have 4 85s, 1 86 and 1 87 farming stuff on four plot farms. And a few guildies used their "talk to this chick and a get a token" token for some items I needed.

Since I made everything I wanted for engineering my farm will be converting Songbells to Iron Paw tokens til I get the Bell and Flippable table.

Nice, yeah I have no patience for mindlessly killing stuff either. That and Ret isnt exactly ideal. He pops demo and never has to leave it endlessly killing piles and piles of turtles with grouped guildies leveling their alts while looting/skinning the turtles. Kills them so fast 2 skinners can't keep up... Slight oversight by Bliz similar to the Wildfowl Brest drop rate.

Anyone wondering it's the turtles just east of the Pools of Purity in Vot4W.

Also completed Master of the Ways - yesterday, will hit exalted GL, Klaxxi and Anglers sunday or monday (I forget which).
Must look into this turtle "trick" for the Bell, or just go completely songbell on Nooska's farm, and do scallions for her food on the 2 alt farms I have.
Main Characters:
Nooska, Blood Elf BM/SV Hunter on Argent Dawn (EU)
Morosin, Bloody freezing orc death knight on Argent Dawn (EU)
Niisca, Shady forsaken "priest" on Argent Dawn (EU)

/runstoVot4Wtonightbeforethisgetsnerfedtoo

Will have to try this myself.. a week or two ago, you could do the same thing with the cranes, as each dropped a wildfowl breast, but the drop rate was nerfed to 25% or so, so farming them became much more troublesome. I know the turtle meat isn't a 100% drop, but if you can kill more efficiently than the cranes, it will work.

According to wowhead, and inline with my guildie's experience, the drop rate is closer to 40%. It's the low amount of health and extremely absurb respawn rate that make this such a productive farming local.

Extremely lucky my ele shaman got:

1st run at HH: the hit+int ring
2nd run at HH: the spirit+int ring
1st run at Sha: the T14 pants (used a coin but anyways)

Rogue got the agi ring to drop 4 times in a row, won it on that 4th try when finally I was the only agility wearer on group..

Next up: will be doing HH on rogue daily until the 2 swords and possibly the mount could drop.. Will settle for the insta cast broom (unless they fix that also)
