For the record, a sum total of zero coins were spent this week on LFR.

I'm still using 1 coin in LFR atm, on Grand Empress Shek'zeer. Might stop that now that I have the weapon and only need helm.

I'm keeping an updated list of potential upgrades that values the relative gain of each upgrade against the number of potential coin-provided upgrades to keep an idea of where the coin should be spent.

Right now, Spirit Kings remain top of the pack, with potentially Imperial Vizier. Sha of Anger is of course top spot :-p EDIT: in fact, considering I need 2 of the 15 or so pieces he could drop for me, it's actually a gambler's choice...

I'm just going for tier tokens, weapons, and helm (my only remaining blue). (I wouldn't have needed an LFR helm but somehow I briefly forgot I was saving for the 489 and went and spent all my valor upgrading my weapon.)

Overall my spriest is doing well (ilvl 488), got a belt off of Galleron and tier gloves off Sha recently, but am still chasing a Sha-touched. Finished my bug LFRs for the week and nada. If I could get an offhand to replace my 476 and a Sha-touched, I might actually stop LFR and focus on dailies again, as I'm way behind on the reps and short on lesser coins now. But I still need that Sha-touched... (gonna be a while before my guild sees that on normal, and even then I'm competing with 2 healers and a mage for the normal versions).

After convincing my boss to let me give eBay a serious go in July, I've now had as many orders through ebay this year as I have through our website. That's right. 6 months of ebay = 1 yr of website.

AND the killer thing? Most of the stuff I'm selling on ebay I'm selling at a premium over our normal store prices. Some of this stuff I couldn't give away on the sales floor, and I'm selling the crap out of it on eBay, AND for more money than what I had it for in the store.

Now... I wonder if there is a Christmas bonus in my future.

Gratz! And it's weird what sells on EBay. My wife does a fund raiser sale of pen-light things and couldn't give them away in person, but sells a few every week through EBay.

I accidentally soloed Malygos 25-man yesterday. Not really much of an accomplishment, though, because it was almost as easy as 10 man, just took longer. I didn't realise I was on 25man until I'd blown all my cooldowns and he didn't go straight into phase 2. :lol:

(Got Denyin' the Scion 25, Maly 25, and Poke in the Eye 25 achieves, since I'd never set foot in 25man before.)

Heroic Steelskin.

Normally I wouldn't really consider getting gear a major success. The reason this is a succes is that it marks the first time since Wrath Naxx that I have actually obtained a BiS shield while the content was still current (other than Glacial Wall but I didn't get it until our last week of ICC raiding...).

Maybe my luck has finally changed.

GZGZGZ...

I did the first 3wipes there yesterday night... i'm not confortable on this boss since my guild always fails when it's a ranged driven fight...

Jumped into heroics today on my 442 geared DK as a tank. I survived the first instance wholly, and in the second I only died once, due to everyone else being dead end being told to sit down and die (3 minutes later) (healer was OOM - my bad for not letting it have a mb before pulling sha in temple).

But getting the best out of DS is hard compared to what I'm used to.

Killed Muerta and finished the achievement. (She was tougher than the others, but only really because of the thing where she just stands at range and spams spells.)

Exalted with Operation: Shieldwall, meaning all my rep grinding is finally over! Would have had the 70 exalted achievement if they hadn't removed it. :P

Finished all 9 challenge modes in one night, was avoiding to do them for so long due to people beeing emo not wanting to go later on, was nice actually doing them all in one go so we would skip that problem altogether.

Yeah, they are both bosses that, once you have killed them, will pretty much always die in the first couple of attempts the next week. Pure execution fights.

Revered Dominance Offensive

@Newsom, how did you manage to get exalted already? is there a noncapped rep thing I've missed?

That was Newsom. I'm not quite revered yet, though I think I missed a day of dailies. I think there's an extra daily you can do from commendations, but I was under the impression it didn't give rep. Maybe that was a bug though, and got fixed after the first few days of 5.1.
