Last night I had to do some World of Warcraft maintenance, in that I had allowed my Emissary quest to stack up for three days and was about to start losing them. I fairly joylessly burned through those, then decided to take a chance at a 370 piece of loot from the Warfront that is now open to Horde players. I still find those pretty fun but ultimately wound up with disappointment in that I got a 370 item in a slot I already had one. You would think they could factor in the gear that the player has when they give those extremely limited time rewards like that… because since it is ultimately a shot at loot every three weeks… please give us something we can use.
From there I popped into Monster Hunter World where I largely did some maintenance there as well. I spent most of the night farming up zenny so that I could buy the Power Charm, which is an item that takes up a bag slot but gives you a pretty potent damage boost. I had already purchased the Armor Charm which does the same thing, but for your defense stat. These apparently open up once you have fought the Zorah Magdaros final form and cost 24,000 zenny for the Armor Charm and 36,000 zenny for the Power Charm. Later through the magic of crafting you will be able to turn these into Talons… and then re-buy the Charms again… but for now I should be set for the early High Rank content. I’m up to the Tickled Pink quest which is to hunt a High Rank Anjanath, which I simply was not ready to deal with mentally last night and wound up wandering off to do other things.
Instead I popped over to burn through some quests in MTG Arena, where I seemed to have a ton that wanted me to cast White spells. I had picked up the Eternal Thirst deck as one of my freebies, and I decided to start playing around with it. I have to say… for a weird Cats and Vampires concept I am really digging it. Unless you are also playing against a deck with stupid life gain powers… you can do some come from behind nonsense with this one. I feel like I need to tune it a bit and swap some cards, and could ultimately make a super powerful deck out of it. For the purpose of questing though… it had plenty of white cards so it allowed me to whittle that down in a few turns. This morning I noticed I had another freebie deck available and unlocked the Blue/Green Merfolk deck… which included a single copy of one of my favorite cards… Jadelight Ranger. I am hoping that one of the decks they end up throwing my way is the Explore matters deck that we originally had in Alpha. Mostly I don’t want to spend the proxies on rebuilding it if they are going to give me like 90% of the cards in a few weeks as we keep rotating through unlocking free decks.
