Blizzard, Blizzard….. It has been over 36 hours since the beginning of the this month, and we still have no press release about this new expansion. Even though its been not even a full two days, I thought that this would be an excellent time to release a whole bunch of information on Friday and then leave the site for the weekend allowing people to go crazy with theories and speculation over the weekend, then the Ghostcrawler would come sideways walking back to the forums to explain Blizzard’s reason for going with one of their gameplay changes.
It looks like that its not going to happen this weekend, so instead of having a blog post about the cool new information that would have just been released like I planned. But No, I have to make a whole post to stave off the inevitable for at lease a few more days. So because honestly I thought we would have some mist of Pandarian news by now, i did not have a ‘real’ backup blog post (This teaches me to be more careful about predicting future news coming from Blizzard)
So this Friday, I’m going to share to you on the things that I am working on before Mists goes live, Here is my Personal To Do list before Mist of Pandaria.
- To collect over 75k gold
This amount of gold is going to be for the new gold sink that this expansion will bring. What ever it is you can bet that I will want it, and that I will get it. I entered Cataclysm with about 35-ish thousand gold and I want to my goal this time, to take into account the inflation of gold that will happen.
- Full tier 13 set on my mage.
So far I have only collected one complete tier set, the tier 10 Bloodmage set. I really hope that I complete the tier 13 Time Lord set because I really love the clockwork look of the armor and I am a huge Doctor Who fan and I would be really disappointed if i don’t get all five normal-raid mode pieces.
- Get enough pets for the Menagerie achievement
Since I completed the Mountain of Mounts achievement a few months ago, I started pet collecting. So far I have 103/125 mounts. I hope that I can get the other 22 pets before patch 5.0 drops
- Get that Darkmoon Faire Dancing Bear Mount.
This is just one more mount to get, but it’s one that is hard to farm. This one is going to be mount #125. I want a jump start on any additional mount collecting achievements that comes in Mist of Pandaria.
- Complete all the pre-Mist events
From what we have heard from the Blues, it looks like that the Mist of Pandaria’s pre-expansion events are going to be change Jaina Proudmoore’s character, and how the Alliance reacts any future Horde actions. When that happens I want to be there on my Draenie mage to witness everything that unfolds.
In a few months or so, I’ll look back on this post and I’ll see how many of these goals I have completed.
Be MOP focuses on the lead up to the next World of Warcraft expansion with my own reflections about the last dying moments of the Catalysm’s Twilight Hour as we look into the Mist of the new day. Updates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
