Last night was an interesting night filled with running a bunch of the world quests out in Broken Shore in an attempt to get the faction needed to finish getting Legionfall over the revered mark. However after doing everything that was available, and the daily goblin treasure quest… I found myself still just shy of the finish line. I needed just shy of 400 faction, and after taking a break to get some food I roamed around aimlessly trying to sort out what if anything I should be doing. It was around then that I got pinged by a friend of mine and asked if I was up for tanking some mythic dungeons. Last week was the “run 4 mythics and get a chest” quest in Dalaran, and I had not touched it myself because I didn’t think I would have any semblance of a regular group. However when one reached out to me at around 8:30 I took the opportunity.
All told we ran Mythic Halls of Valor zero to get some keystones, and it also happened to be a world quest for a significant chunk of artifact power. We then ran a Mythic Maw of Souls because it is super fast and I believe we had a 3 keystone for it. From there I pestered the group to run Cathedral of Eternal Night, because I still had a quest for it and had never actually seen it. It was around this time that I shifted from tank to dps as someone who had tanked the place before took over. I am far from a reasonable dps, but I did okayish in the grand scheme of things… or at least well enough to get us through the dungeon. Finally I shifted back to tanking as we did a Mythic 3 Darkheart Thicket because it was either that… Eye of Azshara or Vault of the Wardens. We all sort of thought that Darkheart would be the fastest. We managed to three chest the dungeons, which largely meant we walked away with some extra artifact power.
After finishing the dungeon runs and turning in the quest I managed to cross the finish line with the faction I needed. So as a result I can now finally fly in the Broken Isles. The challenge now is… am I functionally done again with World of Warcraft for awhile? This was really the driving force for me returning was to finish off flight. I mean Friday was fun enough that I will try and start making that on a regular basis. However I am not sure how much I care to actually be logging in each day and doing stuff. I am sitting at 890 item level… and in truth if I am going to be dps I should get some more legendaries. The problem there is that the mathematics are stacked against me… since I have 4 tanking legendaries already. The thought of trying to get 2 more dps legendaries seems daunting. One of my legendaries is not a net dps gain… but it does at least give me some added survival because it heals me each time I spend rage. In theory I should at least keep doing the daily faction chests because I got most of my legendary drops from them.
