Overachieving

What did I do today?  Let’s look at my new achievements!

Well, actually, the first thing I accomplished doesn’t get an achievement, even though it really should.  I maxed out fishing at 450 while trying for a turtle mount.  Nope, didn’t get the mount yet.  While I was doing that though, somebody in guild asked if anybody wanted in on a Sarth 3D raid.  Hell yes, I did.  Well, Sarth 3D turned into Sarth 0D with 20 people, so we got the Heroic: Less Is More achievement.  First thing we rolled on was the Large Satchel of Spoils.

Yeah, a perfect 100.  Inside were 5 Valor tokens, which gave me my 50 Emblems of Valor achievement.  I was also outrolled on a gloves token that dropped.  I spent 25 of them on a Ring of Invincibility, which finally gave me full epic gear.  Good bye Mobius Band.

Then I started playing with WoWHead’s new profiler.  I loaded my stuff from the Armory, scrolled down, and there were all these red marks on my list of gear.  I had 7 things that weren’t enchanted.  So I went enchant shopping, and corrected that omission.

The last of those enchants that I bought took me to Icecrown for the Knights of the Ebon Blade head enchant.  I did the dailies there, just because I could, and then flew to the Argent Tournament Grounds.  I hate the Argent Tournament, but I’d been doing the non-mounted combat dailies, so I was able to the Gnomeregan Champion quest, and got the ‘of Gnomeregan’ title as well as my slaveboy.  I guess I’ve figured out how to defeat the mounted NPCs, but damn, it just kills my arm.  I get so focused on hitting the buttons to beat the guy, that my muscles just tense up and it feels like I’ve been lifting weights after about 5 fights.  I amazingly managed to defeat an Ironforge champion, so just 9 more factions to go for that achievement.

I headed back to Dalaran after the dailies reset and finished off the night with the 25 Dalaran Cooking Awards achievement.
