Livin’ la vida Scholo

Completely selfish post, but I’ve been farming Scholomance too much and need to keep track somehow. (I’ll also need to be farming Scarlet Monastery, and yes I know I’m running out of time but Scholomance is more of a pain to farm and has more pretty stuff. It helps that I don’t care at all about the Scarlet set.)

Classes listed in brackets are the ones I’m missing the item on. I added my (lvl40, but I can carry her since I have two accounts) rogue and my goblin hunter to the list of characters to get stuff for. Those are the yellow marks, since I don’t care about them nearly as much.

The hearts are the stuff I wasn’t trying for or expecting to get, but it dropped anyway and I’m happy about it.

Bonecreeper Stylus: 
Ebon Hilt of Marduk:  (death knight)

Obsessive? Me? You don’t say. I’ll keep this updated as I farm more things and then stop updating it once Scholomance changes.

Wherein I get trolled by the RNG gods

Posted in Alts, Miscellanea, Transmogrification with tags , , , on August 21, 2012 by Aeliel

To the surprise of absolutely nobody who knows me, I’ve been farming Scholomance on my various alts for pretty clothes. (I’ve also been poking LFR with a stick, and I also need to find some time to farm Scarlet Monastery, but Scholomance has a higher amount of pretty, so it gets farmed first.)

So, while I wait out my instance timer, here’s a bit of complaining.

For reference, here’s what I want out of it for each of my characters (with what I’ve gotten so far struck out):

Death Knight: Stoneform Shoulders, Corpselight Greaves, Deathbone set, Silent Fang, Ebon Hilt of Marduk, Barovian Family Sword
Druid: Cadaverous set
Hunter: Royal Cap Spaulders, Bloodmail Legguards, Ancient Bone Bow
Mage: Alanna’s Embrace, Clutch of Andros, Necropile set
Paladin: Stoneform Shoulders, Corpselight Greaves, Deathbone set (Silent Fang would be a nice-to-have)
Priest: Alanna’s Embrace, Clutch of Andros, Necropile set
Shaman: Royal cap Spaulders, Bloodmail Legguards
Warlock: Alanna’s Embrace, Clutch of Andros, Necropile set, Bonecreeper Stylus
Warrior: Stoneform Shoulders, Corpselight Greaves, Deathbone set, Silent Fang, Ebon Hilt of Marduk, Barovian Family Sword

I’m currently farming on my hunter. Got the Royal Cap Spaulders and the Ancient Bone Bow pretty fast, but still no sign of the Bloodmail Legguards. I do, however, have enough Ancient Bone Bows I would need to be the goddess Kali to wield them all, as well as a partial Deathbone set (two legs, one chest, one belt), two Cadaverous chest pieces… and the following lovely bit of trolling on the part of the RNG gods:

Why yes, that is indeed not one, but two copies of Headmaster’s Charge. Dropped in two consecutive runs. Can’t even really keep it, since the hunter’s losing the ability to wield melee weapons in a week. I’m not furious, since I don’t particularly want the thing on any of my casters (and if I end up wanting to transmog to the model, I’ve got the BoE version of it stashed away on a bank alt, or there’s always the heirloom), but still. Ugh.

Meanwhile, still no Bloodmail Legguards, despite the fact that they’re theoretically easier to get than Headmaster’s Charge since there’s 6 minibosses that can drop them at a 2-3% chance each.

Although my most recent Krastinov kill did cough up a Sawbones Shirt, which is very nice to have although I wasn’t deliberately farming for it (since I have it on my main, and while it’s a gorgeous shirt I don’t badly want it on my alts), so I suppose that evens out.
