It’s been a busy few weeks – running around doing all those low level quests for reputation, Argent Tournament dailies and grubbing for gold (I need new shoes so bad it isn’t funny.)

I finally got Exalted reputations with Ironforge and the Gnomeregan Exiles, the usual Achievements that go with it, and opened up the rest of the Argent Tournament dailies.

I purchased all the Ironforge/Gnomeregan Exiles mounts and it was just enough to get the Leading the Cavalry Achievement and the Albino Drake.

As much as I love the look of the Albino Drake, I think I’ll still flying the Blue Drake for while – after all those Oculus wipes to get it the Blue Drake feels like more an Achievement.

Pirate Day and Brewfest

Pirate Day and now Brewfest is a nice bit of comic relief from the daily grinds.  Pirate Day was a little disappointing.  Not much to do and just one achievement.  A nice parrot pet reward for something would have made it a little more interesting!

This is my first Brewfest and I was happy to see it more along the style of the Love is in the Air event.  A few quests and dailies to do, boss fight, mounts that might drop and best of all, two pets!

I wasted no time running my Priest to Ironforge to get those pets, and promptly hit the wall when the first few quests required – you guessed it – vehicles.

Not one, but three quests riding around on a Ram mount that would kick me off when it become “tired”, making me abandon the quest and start all over again.

Okay, I admit it took me about three tries to figure out how the barrel run worked, but once I aced that I can pick up over 20 tokens in the daily.

I blew all my first tokens on the Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm and completed the (actually fun) quest for the Wolpertinger.

I’ve also been running the instance every day, but so far no Brewfest mounts have dropped.  I thought I’d try for the Brewmaster title so I purchased the hops to turn my mount into a Brewfest mount just to get the Achievment.

Would be nice if one of the “real” mounts dropped!  I ran enough of the instances to get all the trinkets and a couple of the weapons dropped (I didn’t win or couldn’t roll) but no mounts or the Brewfest Remote.

Oh well.

At least it’s a couple of more Emblems of Frost a day (no, nothing “extra” in the barrel reward.)

On the bright side – I finally got my Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat!
