We are Legendary! (finally)

     Since I got Seish to the challenge stage of the Legendary Questline I'd stalled out for quite a bit. I gave it two tries that day after 3 hours of LFR and I was too tired to do anything but poorly. Since then I've just once in a while gone over to give it a whirl, limiting myself to two tries at a time to keep from getting frustrated. I learned a few things during this process. One being that I should never try something like this when I've just had a cup of very strong coffee. When I get close to accomplishing something tough I get tense and tense plus a cup of strong coffee ended up with Seish dead on the floor.
     Weeks dragged by and a lot of them I didn't even try, waiting for that mystical right mindset. Well last night I broke my rule about two tries a go. I gave it three with about an hour of afking and chatting in between the second and the third. And you know what they say about third tries.
     After that it was a matter of sitting around on the Isle first thing this morning to get in a tag on all four Celestials. Not so bad at all.

     What I didn't realize was that this would give the guild an achieve too! Sure Seish is the GM and one of the few people left playing in it, but he did it mostly all alone. But sure enough, Seish is Legendary and so is his guild.

     The tiger cloak proc matches his mog pretty well, especially Quel'Dalar. And I'm so excited. So late to the party too, between how hard it is for me to find time to run LFRs and how slow I was pushing myself through my nervous fingers to do the challenge. Seish thinks we could have had it a month ago. He's probably right. His gear hasn't improved since then, it was just all about me beating myself so I could beat the challenge.
    Then since I'd finally finished it I had to try out the Blizzard Raid Finder feature and get in an Ordos kill.
     I suspect I'll be doing a lot more of those... and Laen's already started on his legendary, even though I told myself I'd be content with getting Seish one. That healer wing proc is so pretty I can't resist trying, and Laen would love an extra boost to his ability to heal all the things. (Sorry Rim, not sure I'm brave enough to tank that many LFRs, so you'll probably be the odd paladin out.) New goal for before Warlords: Get Laen a cape with shiny wings.

    1. Thanks. I think he looks pretty good too. It's a pretty cape even without the neat wing proc. :D
      Laen is super excited now... just wait until he finds out how many dailies he gets to do in ret spec to get Black Prince rep, though. That ought to cool his enthusiasm.

  2. Oooh, he sure looks handsome! AND he's beaten Ordos, that's something Van hasn't done!

    Quel'dalar, ach! I KNEW there was something I left behind on the old server. Now there's a reason to transfer one of the stranded characters, they can bring the battered hilt I have stashed away. ^.^

    1. Blue's a good color for redheads! And I just love those wings. I was surprised how quick it was to get an Ordos group through the in game Open Raid tool. It made it really quick and easy.
      I love Quel'Dalar! I was so happy to be able to get it for Seish! It just seems like the kind of sword he'd carry. And the quest chain to get it was really neat. So Van definitely needs one. ;)
