So Long, Farewell, Mists of Pandaria

As I was thinking of a title for this post, I got this song stuck in my head. I won't apologise!
'So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight'
The Arboretum in The Jade Forest is one of my favourite places in Pandaria.
'So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you'
Adieu, Charm Maker. Adieu, Mythic Vendor. Adieu, Zandalari Warscout... I will see you again some day, I'm sure, but for now, you may keep your stolen goods!
'I'm glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly'
The last mount that I obtained this expansion will take me into Warlords of Draenor, where I shall no longer be able to fly!

I wish I could say I was going to miss the scenery, the raids, the zones, but I am ready for WoD! I can't see myself coming back to Pandaria any time soon, but eventually I will be back to collect the last of the mounts that eluded me.

I hope everyone has an awesome launch day without any of the usual hiccups that I seem to experience!

Mini-Post: It Might Just Save Your Life

I saw people getting this achievement on the first day of 6.0 and was a little curious, but asking around it seemed like I would have to wait until the Love is in the Air event to get it. This weekend Mctacky said to me on vent 'Luxy, I am about to get something you don't have!' 'Wuuuut iiiis iiiiit?' Then it popped up in guild. 'TELL ME HOW?!' He mentioned a necklace and I assumed he meant the bracelet thingies that I knew I didn't have. Turns out he used Winking Eye of Love, I wondered if I had one sitting around on any toon. I logged over to my druid and she was wearing Heartbreak Charm! Yay!
If you happen to still have any of the neck pieces (item level 480) that drop from Apothecary Hummel during the Love is in the Air world event, be sure to unleash the power of love! Ew... but 10 points! NOW! Instead of 4 months from now!

There are 5 different neck pieces:

Sweet Perfume Broach
Shard of Pirouetting Happiness
Choker of the Pure Heart
Heartbreak Charm
Winking Eye of Love

Just keep your winking away from me please.

Luxy Has a Blog? Shocking, I Know

Things are busy in Luxyland. Well, not reeeealllllyyyy but uni, not-so-tiny puppy, and actually playing (afking) WoW are stealing away all of my blogging time...

Notable things I have done whilst I haven't been posting:
Challenge Conqueror: Gold - While I got silvers on my Shaman with Navi, Lush, Sev and Arv, I got the golds on my Priest.
I've Got the Biggest Brawls of Them All - Rank 10 Brawler's Guild - Took me long enough but I finally got my Brawler's Burly Mushan Beast with some awesome cheerleaders to keep me motivated.
Another ugly Mushan!
Glory of the Orgrimmar Raider - Yay! OpenRaid got me most of these in just one weekend.
Fire-Watcher - My apologies to Barthilas who had to suffer me for a couple of weeks while I farmed their delicious Bloody Coins. I might still be accidentally stealing coins from friends though. Dem Lava Burst procs!
Master of Deepwind Gorge - Can't even thank Putress enough for this. I couldn't have capped all those carts or sat through all of those wins alone. <3
I doubt I will miss Deepwind Gorge any time soon.
Veluxia is no longer a Draenei, and no longer named Veluxia! It was hard to faction change her, but I really wasn't playing her as alliance on a dead server. For now she lives on Mal'Ganis, a happy little Goblin again!
Back to Goblin and a new transmog!
Things I want to finish up before WoD:
Glory of the Pandaria Raider - A few to go, Show Me Your Moves! seems a little challenging, but with the right group it should be doable! I have tried it with a couple of OpenRaid groups without success. I just need to find time to get into some groups for the other meta achievements. Still a lot of points to be gained there!
Glory of the Thundering Raider - Just one to go. I think I need a couple of different platforms on Lei-Shen for A Complete Circuit, again just need the time to commit to a ToT run!
Proving Yourself: Gold Damage - Proving Grounds are something I have been pretty lazy about because I found it quite boring to be honest and it is so lonely in there! I got silver on my Shaman though, I suppose there is plenty of time to work on gold.  
Going To Need a Bigger Bag - 3 to go! Generally I am studying on second screen while camping a rare on the isle so it's not as boring as it could be but this achievement really sucks! I am just left with camping Spirit of Jadefire for Glowing Green Ash, then I will be killing High Priest of Ordos for Ash-Covered Horn and mannnny crabbies to make the Monstrous Spineclaw spawn for Spineclaw Crab
I stillllll need to finish leveling all of my 5.4 pets to 25. I think I have around 20 to go but I am still quite burnt out on pet leveling and battling in general, though I have been having a lot of fun forcing other people to start pet battling, some even obsessively asking for invites to look for rares now!

It looks a lot less daunting when I look at it like that, although, some of those won't be fun or fast... Luckily I have awesome friends, the kind who are always there to help me, listen to me rage, and often always mock me! :D
