Bloody, Bloody Coins...

I had pretty much ignored this element of the Timeless Isle for the longest time. I love to PvP, but I was not so keen on killing members of my own faction as well. It seems cruel and doesn't really promote a healthy sense of community. Trolling is already high in trade and general chats. I had bought my Censer of Eternal Agony (1,000 Timeless coins from Speaker Gulan) early on, just for the achievement.
Using the censer turns you pink!
I had been discussing it with a friend, Healycow, on Barthilas and he said he still had plenty to go. We were both free, so decided to group up and see who we could find to kill on his server, since it's PvP. In the first hour I had over 30 coins and he had almost as many!

Of all of our kills on the first night, I'd say less than 5% were actually alliance players, which made me feel pretty bad. Luckily, Barthilas hasn't been my main server since Cataclysm so, I don't have to worry too much about any enemies I make. Amusingly, I almost attacked a Frostwolf! Saundin was on Barthilas for a Celestials group when I targetted him and noticed his name!

Aside from raiding, Bloody Coins are the reason I am logging on lately, pestering my friends on PvP realms for invites. While often they want to join me for some PvP, you will remain on their server while you are grouped even if they need to log out, so alts are handy too! I have alts on Barthilas Horde and Frostmourne Alliance who can invite anyone who wants to farm coins on Oceanic!

Items such as [Odd Polished Stone], [Kang's Bindstone], [Aqua Jewel] can help mask the fact that you have the censer buff, especially if players aren't showing name plates. Eternal Warrior's Sigil is really good for getting your health back up fast after using the censer (Very helpful if any sneaky rogues are stalking you!) Cursed Swabby Helmet helps if you want to gank people as they are killing Evermaw! Evil... I know.  

Bloody Coins can be used to purchase the following items:
Pouch of White Ash - 20 Bloody Coins 
Reins of the Ashhide Mushan Beast - 500 Bloody Coins
Vengeful Porcupette  - 100 Bloody Coins
Fire-Watcher's Oath  - 50 Bloody Coins
Black Ash - 1 Bloody Coins
Not the most attractive mount, which people often mentioned when raging about being killed. 'Enjoy your ugly Mushan!'
I am currently on 613 of 2000 that I need for the Fire-Watcher achievement, which was fortunately nerfed from 10,000. Still a long way off, but getting there! If anyone isn't planning on farming the coins and needs a Vengeful Porcupette, I see many of them in my future, let me know if you want one!


  1. You know, I bought the censor just after the patch hit but didn't realise there was an achievement just for using the thing. I'm currently on my 3rd coin :P Good luck with the rest of your farming.

    1. 7 more coins til you get an achievement then! :D

  2. My druid has a surplus of the timeless coins so I might head over and buy the censer just for the achievement for using it. I really suck at pvp so I'm not sure if I actually want to try for the porpcupette but it might be fun :)

    1. Definitely buy it, and if you do want to try some farming, I suggest sooner rather than later as I can't imagine this Isle being too populated come WoD.

  3. Thanks for the Vengeful Porcupette!

  4. Oh my! Scary Luxy indeed!

    If you happen to still be giving away one of those Vengeful Porcupettes, I would love to have one. But, if you're all out; that is ok as well. I hope that your farming goes well! I won't get mad if you end up attacking me. :D
