Every day, the leathercrafting MoP leather transmute... for that non-PvP Hunter belt pattern discovery. It's as if the game is waiting for me to get absolutely every single PvP pattern before giving me that one belt I can actually use.

For some reason, on my tailor I got all of the non-PvP patterns (pants and belts) within the first few weeks of cloth transmuting. But my leathercrafter got the non-PvP druid leather belt pattern, and that's it.. everything else has been PvP.

I spent a bit of time playing Aion, and ended up not so much hating it, as not being particularly impassioned by it. It's beautiful, that's for sure. But the quests are dull, and ... well.. it isn't WoW.

So I've been working longer hours at the office, since I have work to do, and it's not like I particularly feel like rushing into WoW these days.

A bit of palindromic wisdom:
"Step on no pets!"
Casual player.. don't raid, don't PvP. Suffer from extreme altitis
I love pets - combat or non.

I feel your pain. Still trying to get both the hunter belt and pants patterns!

Thats kinda how I feel too. When I play other games for abit it just isnt wow...I think I'm just bored. All ive got left to do is either farm really hard stuff or lvl alts. I get so far and think "I could be 90 like that if I wanted to..." sigh! got something like 13 90's now...

I actually just wanna get my robe on my rp toon so I can go back to civilization and actually rp again ><

Got my legendary cloak yesterday, so feeling pretty good about that!
Trying to get the CM:silver's done so I can get the mount. Hopefully my new cloak will help :3
And...gearing up my DK a bit and re-learning how to play his dusty butt ^^

I am trying to figure out what level 90 I want to boost and also how the bloody hell to start the "Siege of Orgramar" questline so now that I do have a max toon I can finally do a major story based quest.
Never have I beaten or been a part of a battle with Illadin, Arthas, Deathwing, or any of the big world story bosses

Right now, I'm having fun with my boosted Undead Warlock. I'm getting him geared through Timeless Isle and LFR drops. He's at 495 now and one more drop will let me run SoO LFR's. I'm also trying to get him rep with the Cloud Serpent Riders and with Wrathion.

I'm having a ball on my two boosted toons - my tauren Enhance shaman and Worgen destruction warlock. OMG such fun!!

I found one button macros for both and an add on that extends the amount of characters you can use in the macro field...probably not news to anyone hardcore but i was like asddfagfyge holy crap awesome!!

I also got not 1 or 2 weapons in ToES for my warlock but...all of them!!! Got the daggerx2, sword and staff!! My fiance was fuming as hes been after the staff for his mage for a while :( I offered him a dagger but he wasn't very impressed :P

Daily CD chores, pet battles, arenas, old stuff for transmogrification (solo and group). Occasionally I'll progress an alt through the cloak quest chain. I've mostly finished with timeless isle (spineclaw minipet took sooo long), except for bloody coins.

I could get in the mood to level alts, I did a lot of them at the end of Cata (I deleted at least two 85s, so I could level more up). But I'll probably wait until the new male Draenei faces to make a new leveling toon.

There's still Brawler's pub. I'm stuck on Hexos (feral druid), maybe my dps is high enough now to get it down before I choke.

So I guess I'm not hurting for things to do. It fits my playstyle of just flying here and there doing stuff that's handy.

* Grinding out the legendary on Mindala. It's tedious, so I won't do it on another.
* Gearing up a 80-locked Frost DK, Icicle, to do at-level raiding
* Grinding out reps and stuff on Mindala; I really need to finish the Skyguard rep.
* Leveling up an Alliance-side hunter and learning to play BM at the same time. Triesta hit 50 last night and is an white-skin, white-hair Draenei wearing all white (mostly the Sentry's set but different legs) with all white pets. Started that when I got Echeyakee and decided to theme.
* Random in-game silliness.

I thought I'd posted in this thread already, but it doesn't seem that I have! I've been leveling a bunch of RP alts (usually only to about 20 before I make another, haha....) and doing dailies. I'm trying to actually get my Argent Tournament stuff done, since I've been putting it off for YEARS.... I'm also going to be working on the challenge modes now, with the recent updates to the mounts and the title. The transmog armour is cool, but I'm not sure if I care enough about it to get to gold. Silver will probably be good enough for me.

Since most of my 90's are WoD ready, I'm putting mogs together on my boosted mage and catching up on lore along with leveling a prot pally I've made.

Before, the only lore I really read about was the dragons, but I've learnt alot of the other stuff is interesting, plus it would be kinda fitting to read on orc and draenei lore for next expac.

I've also learnt so far that pre-80 prot pallies feel OP.

Updating what I'm doing.

Mostly been leveling my pally, she's a lot of fun. Getting from 86-90 is going to take forever, though. x.x Especially with how fast 80-85 was. Also doing mount runs aaand probably going to do some Challenge Modes, because wow I really want all four phoenixes. x.x

Leveling alts, pet battles (I NEED that baby Xuen, I NEED it!), collecting mounts. I can only play a leetle bit since ... grad school. I spend my days writing, reading, scraping algae off of glass with a razor blade (or toothbrushing corals...), so I tend to putter around casual-like.

A little while ago I overcame my trepidation of WoW roleplaying and joined a friend's RP guild. It's been a fantastic experience and I'm enjoying myself so much! Having an active RP guild and joining with friends has really refreshed the game for me during this pre-xpac lull. :)

I've been doing mostly idling in major cities, admittedly, but I have been trying to shake off the virtual dust that's been settling on me by doing some self-enforced goal hunting. Here's my to-do list:

- Keep writing/roleplaying. Got many fantastic storylines going between characters, which is a god send in times like these.
- Work on Legendary Cloak (While it's slow going, I'm getting there – on runestones now. Won't...likely do it again on another character unless that datamined buff goes in.)
- Look for Pandaria treasures to finish off the Relic Hunter achievement.
- Play the auction house more seriously. (I've been reading recent articles on the subject and tapping into markets where I can.)
- Finish the Kanrethad / Green Fire quest line on my warlock. (I'm on the last section, but after getting beat on for days and days I haven't tried in months.)
- Pick up farming again for mounts I'm still missing (Big ones: Raven reins, Attumen's mount, Deathcharger, White Hawkstrider, Slabhide's mount, Altairus' mount.)
- Pick up Archeology again. I'm still missing: Crawling Hand, Ultramarine Qiraji mount, Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron.
- Resume pet battling and enter the Celestial Tournament. (I have a huge collection and I'm not missing much, but I have not leveled the required amount to enter.)
