19 out of 20 Secrets of the Empire on my Pally this past week, in only 3 weeks total. Unless I'm terribly unlucky I should be able to get one more out of the first two ToT wings, get the meta, and start in on the Runestones after the reset tomorrow. And unlike my Lock, the Pally is rolling in 502+ helms so no need to drop the cash to craft a 522 just to slot it.

I am mildly curious about whether you can get both the guaranteed Secrets and the guaranteed Runestone off of Lei Shen in the same week, but not enough to actually run the experiment.

Just to double check, you can pick up both the tanking meta and a dps meta, right?

Prepare for many frustrating nights wiping at the first transition.

guild decided to use 8 of our haunting spirits ( i think we had like 12?) to have a new helm made for me, and i got my last 2 secrets in the first wing of LFR!

so i upgraded from a 489 to a 522 helm and got my legendary meta! now time for the soul sucking wait for runestones, at least based on what i have read in the frustrations thread :)

It's been a little better since Lei Shen drops one 100% even on LFR. Still, don't expect being done with it before september.

Where you are has no bearing, you can get them from LFR as well, lol.

Unless, you tell me you're progressing on Durumu LFR, but then you and I need to have a talk.

Also: I've gone on a Simcraft/WoL rampage, ergo, new avatar!

i know they drop from LFR, but that is less chance i will get one on normal and LFR...unless they made it so you can get one only once per boss per week...

pretty sure i had secrets from horridon twice last week, lfr and normal

All the legendary drops can only be obtained once from each boss per week, regardless of which difficulties you kill them on.

I should never have made this post, what the hell was I thinking. Three wings of ToT LFR last night, no Secrets. I may yet get to run that experiment.

That said, I finally got the Fabled Feather off of Ji-Kun last night, so it wasn't all bad, and the LFR runs themselves were fairly smooth. Not a single wipe, even on Durumu.

I'm not running LFR much, but the times I've gone in I've been seeing pretty decent groups, or at least enough well geared decent players that the pile that die don't really matter much.

It's all I run, and between overall gearing up and enough of the playerbase knowing the fights, ToT LFR runs go fairly well at this point. I almost never see wipes except on Durumu, Dark Animus, and Lei Shen, and even on those latter two it's starting to get a little rare.

Just run it on Wed when hc raiders are running it for runestones / secret. Goes quick.

Running it right on the reset is also hilarious. The Durumu had him at 3% going into the first Beam, Primordius lasted one Evolve.

Now that we're staring Ra-Den in the face having killed Lei Shen yesterday, I'll finally get my last Runestone, which should be great.

So... had to stay home due to plumbing issue.

Started the day at 458 equipped. 5 LFRs later, plus some valor and honor, sitting at 481 equipped, with 5 of each Sigil, and have Mogustones ready to do ToT LFR 1.

There we go. Got in a partial of the final wing last night and finally got my last Secrets off of the Twins (and then dropped to avoid the Lei Shen kill). One Forge fight and one Nalak fight later, meta acquired and socketed.

And now I'm in the slightly odd state of needing an Iron Qon kill and a Lei Shen kill to finish out the week, but not another Twins kill. If my luck so far this reset holds, I'll get another partially complete for a LS kill before queuing up a third time for the IQ kill.

(Also, accidentally clicking the Save Draft button makes for a somewhat confusing experience.)

I thought you were soloing warbringers? I have at least 5 toons exalted with all 4 of those factions, and only one of them did real questing for those factions. Rest? the rep tokens.

Derp. Too many factions.

Never even checked that rep again once I got the trinket.. umm.. does it provide anything else besides poorly itemized gear?
