In which I attempt to get organized!

Inspired by the amazingly organised Godmother, I’m attempting to prepare as best I can for MoP whilst I have some free time. I realise this post itself could be seen as a form of procrastination but I do work better from lists (honest!).

Dulcamara

1. Reach lv 75 so I can have a Shivarra.

2. Level Jewelcrafting

Ellora

1. Finish the Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms

2. Finish the Loremaster of Kalimdor

3. Level Inscriptions

4. Finish levelling Enchanting

Erinys

1. Collect the last few pets she needs to hit 125. It’s possible that the individual pet achievements will be disappearing come MoP and I’d like to have the Brilliant Kaliri to go with my Arrokoa disguise. I think that the Celestial Dragon is a bit too far out of reach though unless I raid the Blizzard Pet Shop.

  • Horde Balloon
  • Elementium Geode
  • De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion
  • Legs (from Children’s Week)
  • Enchanted Lantern
  • Mechanical Chicken
  • Mr Grubbs
  • Scooter the Snail (from Children’s Week)
  • Singing Sunflower
  • Tranquil Mechanical Yeti
  • Winterspring Cub
  • Panther Cub
  • Curious Wolvar Pup (from Children’s Week)
  • Gold Mini Jouster

These are all options to get me from 117 to 125. I’ll probably go for the Balloon, the Sunflower, the three children’s week pets, the Panther cub and the Winterspring cub, leaving the last one to chance and whatever happens to be on the AH at the time.

2. Finish up the last 10k I need for exalted with the Netherwing.

3. Read “Sunwell – The Fall of Quel’Thalas”, “The Last Guardian” and “The Lich King Triumphant”, the last three books I need for the “Well Read” achievement.

4. Complete Silverpine and the Southern Barrens quest chains from the Horde perspective again.

5. Get an Oracle egg every three days until one of them hatches a mount.

Lylobean

1. Finish up all the Argent Tournament achievements.

2. Get the Darkmoon Bear mount.

3. Level Cooking and Fishing to the cap.

Sproutling

1. Level Archaeology to the cap.

2. Level Cooking and Fishing to the cap.

3. Pick up the Nesingwary Brush Burner wand for future transmogrification fun.

4. Get the last pet that I’m missing from the Darkmoon Faire (the tonk).

Sprouts

This character was created with one aim in mind, reaching a high enough level to save Spot before the bombs start to fall on Theramore.

1. Save Spot! Given that the Theramore guards are guaranteed to not like a Goblin sneaking in and stealing their dog, I’m not 100 percent what level I’ll need to be. I’ll start trying around the 45 mark.

2. Grab a diseased hawk.

Teasel

1. Finish up all the Fireland Dailies/quest chains

2. Get exalted with the Timbermaw

3. Get the Darkmoon Faire strider mount.

Twiceshy

1. Hit a high enough level to tame Chromaggus.

2. Pick up a Brain Bug too. Either the one with the brain showing or this one.

3. Find and tame Zaricotl.

4. Get exalted with the Thorium Brotherhood (10 k rep to go)

5. Level Blacksmithing

Snowflower

I also want to get ready for my Monk who I’ll be levelling along side since Mr Harpy since he wants to be a fotm reroller! Although I must admit levelling my beta monk has been a lot of fun so far.

1. Double check I’ve got all the heirlooms I could possibly need for both dps and healing specs.

2. 4 big bags for my inventory plus a couple of the bank.

3. Decide on professions and get any mats to level them lined up.

4. Decide on race, Panda versus Gnome versus Nightelf.

General non-character specific stuff.

1. Think of names for all my non combat pets. So far on the Beta I’ve named the following which leaves me with quite a few to go.

  • Orange Tabby =  Boris (after an old book of Peter and the Wolf I found. In it the cat was both orange and called Boris).
  • Feline Familiar = Pyewacket
  • Wind Rider Cub = George
  • Sinister Squashling = Ichabod (for obvious reasons).
  • Darkmoon Faire Balloon = Cecy (after Ray Bradbury’s short story “the April Witch”).

That only leaves me with 140 names to come up with between now and MoP.

2. Fill the bank with as much gold as possible.

3. Run Karazhan every reset on as many characters as possible until Attuman gets stick of seeing me and hands over his horse.

4. Make sure every character has the largest bags possible.

That turned out to be a bigger list then I expected. Hopefully this will work out better than my Pre-Cataclysm to do list where I managed to tick off a grand total of three things.

  1. That is a gigantic and impressive list! I work better off lists myself, don’t worry :D
    I’m going to link this off my bucket list page, if that’s ok?

    • Thanks. I worry sometimes that if I spent less time making lists and more time doing stuff, not only would my desk be tidier but the lists would be considerably shorter.

      Of course it’s ok :)

  2. I don’t dare to make a list because I suspect the sheer amount of things on it would scare me off *lol*

    At the moment I’m busy leveling characters together with a friend, which is a lot of fun – but takes a lot of time away from doing achievements or other things on my regular characters.

    I definitely need to bug Attumen some as well. I really, really want that mount!

    • I’m trying to break it down to seem less scary, like I just did the Firelands dailies so I’ll probably leave jousting til tomorrow and so on. Can’t quite decide between that approach and picking a goal, finishing it and then picking another one.

      Killed Attumen three times today, no mount…. :(

  3. That is indeed an impressive list! I’m so disorganized, I should make one, maybe help me focus. My only desire right now is to get the stupid Reins of the Raven Lord.

    And I think I’ll steal that idea and remember to get my Oracle eggs, probably a better chance of that mount dropping!

    • I hate mounts which have a chance to drop, whilst they take forever for me, a friend/guildmate usually pops in for something completely unmount related and gets it the first time.

      My very first kill of Kael in the 5 man, the day the instance opened, he dropped the white chicken. I lost the roll and I’d got three characters exalted with the Shattered Sun, the last one purely by running the dungeon before he decided I’d suffered enough and handed a mount over.

  4. I’m definitely going to have to consider a list for myself as well. I wonder what will be on it?

  5. [...] by the Harpy who was in turn inspired by this thorough list from Godmother I too have decided to set some goals [...]
