The Home Stretch

Two more days of dailies at the Argent Tournament and I will be done with all of the races. Not sure why it matters but it's something I want to do. I will be glad when that grind is done though.

Still have a lot of dailies to do for a Silver Covenant mount. Not sure I'll be done before Cataclysm hits. Sure, I could do the math and know for sure, but chances are I'll just do a few more after the expansion launches...someday...if I need to.

Also started to seriously farm the last of the whelplings that I need.

Have a little over 4k gold. It's not much by today's standards, but it's a lot for me. My attempt to play the market didn't go so well. I might try again after Cataclysm opens up, the market will be much more lively.

Think I might do some more dungeons and see if I can upgrade any more of my gear before I jump into leveling again.

Soon, we will be bidding Northrend farewell...and I for one will be glad to leave it behind me.

Goals Before the Cataclysm

Nothing special, really. Will continue argent tournament dailies until they sicken me or I get a mount...or something.

There's a few vanilla dungeons I could still do for achievements. I accidentally completed Stratholme last night while I was trying to farm Pristine Black Diamonds. Thought I could get a few sell them to the insane title farmers who still have a chance at the achievement before Blizzard removes it. Didn't get any diamonds, but got the Stratholme achievement. At least that's something.

Gonna try to do all of the Cataclysm pre-event quests. Should be pretty easy, Blizzard wants everyone to have a chance at them.

That's about it, I guess. Might do some more 5-mans, but I'm not trying to complete every instance. Could happen, I suppose but I'll have to work a little harder to get groups for the lesser Wrath 5-mans.

Not sure if I'm going to buy a Cataclysm box on launch day or not. I do know that I want a box though. I can wait a few days if I have to.

Argent Tournament Status

I'm almost done here. I have about four days left of jousting and I'll have the last racial leg done. I'm already exalted with the factions associated with it. I might do some more dailies for the seals. I'd like to get at least one of the mounts. Don't think I'll be getting both of them, that's a lot time involved. As it is, I'm not certain I'll be finishing the seals requirement for even one of the mounts before Cataclysm drops. But it's a goal.

Cataclysm Pre-Event

Well, it's started. No, not the pre-event, but the whining about it. Didn't take long at all. Right now people are complaining that the event is too slow, not enough invaders.

Can't wait for phase four. The whining will epic.
