…yes, I have been PvPing, since you ask. And thereby hangs a tale. And not a happy one.

(That was four Achievements in one go – 1, 2, and 3 Drakes up with Sarth, and not getting hit by the lava waves – 'cos he died before the first one)
I'm back from my holiday!
Good News, Everybody!
Could it be…?
Bad News, Everyone!
When portalling to Uldum to do that fun little daily…
(It was quite fun watching people phase in, die, get the achievement. Nice pile of bodies by the end…)
So, I remembered that it's Brewfest, which is my favourite world event. Which is good.
And then I thought about getting a guild group together for a Coren Direbrew run. And then I remembered you could go through the dungeon finder. Which is good.
And then I checked my very first goodie package from killing Coren.
And that means I now have all the Brewfest Achievements, after bagging Brewmaster a while ago.
Random PuGs for that daily Emblem of Frost goodness are pretty much easy these days. As long as you don’t see one of the three new Instances pop up, you’re fairly sure you’re in for some easy badges. (OK, maybe Occulus can still hurt). But, when you see an ICC instance pop up on the loading screen, the heart tends to sink. It sinks even further when you get in, and you realise that you’re replacing a healer who bailed on the party.
Three out of my four last Random Heroics have been Pit of Saron.
One was great – a guild group from another server, taking a newbie tank though his first Pit run, and only lacking a healer. It went pretty well, and they were good fun to run with (or, at least, they laughed at my jokes, which is pretty much the same thing in my eyes…). The first was a half-way replacement, and I ended up bailing when we wiped repeatedly on the trash before the cave run.
Last night’s omens were not good. Both the healer and tank had bailed from the run, with one boss down. The new tank and I were somewhat trepidcious in our approach, but, barring a rather over-eager DPS pulling aggro twice (and dying – he got the message then), it went well. So well, in fact, that I got an achievement I’d assumed I’d have to wait for a guild group doing it repeatedly to get:
Idle thought: I wonder if Blizz will buff the drop rate on Battered Hilts before the next expansion – those things are still like gold-dust on our server, and I’d love to do the quest line.
