Ar-Pharazon-V (23:08:45):    Aiya!
Arien V (23:09:06):    are tthe others all sitting at thair thanksgiving dinners?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:09:22):    I was a *cough* few days late with the transcript, was hoping Varda'd still catch it. But no email and she's not here, must be busy.
Eonwe Valar (23:09:25):    Shouldn't be. That was Thursday.
Arien V (23:09:25):    *their
Arien V (23:10:04):    i hope she is okay
Eonwe Valar (23:11:09):    Double checking to see if I didn't get something to let us know she wouldn't be here.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:11:15):    in any case, happy turkey day!
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:11:25):    Which is basically all it is to me ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:11:41):    Halloween is pumpkin day, Thanksgiving is turkey day.
Arien V (23:12:05):    hehe:)
Arien V (23:13:09):    just looking into Lotro
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:13:58):    Yay, last falcosaur quest done, all 4 mounts got!
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:14:22):    Twas quite an experience.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:14:36):    Ended up capturing a bunch of pets and leveling others to get all the stuff done.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:14:58):    But ehr... I'll save that for personal gaming ;)
Arien V (23:15:11):    congratulations :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:15:21):    Thanks :)
Eonwe Valar (23:15:41):    Congrats :}
Eonwe Valar (23:15:53):    I guess now is a good time to begin the meeting so let's go ahead.

Eonwe Valar (23:16:06):    Elen SIla Lumenn Omentielvo!
Eonwe Valar (23:16:26):    Membership:
Eonwe Valar (23:16:55):    Eonwe, Pharazon, and Arien are here :}
Eonwe Valar (23:17:22):    Two weeks until AIM goes bye-bye.
Eonwe Valar (23:17:41):    Any other membership news?
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:17:45):    Next week I'll install Discord, first december meeting as I said ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:18:01):    I hope one of you 3 will be around to guide me through it along the meeting!
Eonwe Valar (23:18:34):    I set it up this morning before crawling into bed. Seems easy enough. The trick is getting into the Guild channels.
Eonwe Valar (23:19:00):    That requires Varda.
Eonwe Valar (23:19:37):    But aye, I'll be here :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:20:29):    Great :)

Eonwe Valar (23:21:38):    Web:
Eonwe Valar (23:22:17):    I didn't get to updating the Games Site this week. Plans fell through. Hope to get to it this week though.

Eonwe Valar (23:23:07):    My apologies, I didn't hit one piece of Membership News:
Eonwe Valar (23:23:18):    We have a new member: Luthien!
Eonwe Valar (23:24:15):    She joined us in LotRO. She was looking for a casual kin, spoke with Varda, seemed nice enough, and passed the test (obviously).
Arien V (23:24:21):    i can guide you throujg the set up and invite to the channel
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:24:33):    I thought we already had a Luthien, to be honest. A Tolkien-only.
Eonwe Valar (23:24:42):    Aye.
Eonwe Valar (23:24:53):    But we haven't had a full member Luthien in a while.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:24:59):    Aha!
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:25:15):    Another of my ancestors to fill the ranks.
Eonwe Valar (23:25:20):    :}
Eonwe Valar (23:26:08):    Full members and Tolkien-Only members are separate when choosing names, so don't mix them up if they're ever in the same room together :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:26:44):    hehe
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:26:49):    good thing we've got V and T.
Eonwe Valar (23:27:10):    Aye :}

Eonwe Valar (23:27:42):    Gaming:

Eonwe Valar (23:27:56):    World of Warcraft:
Eonwe Valar (23:28:23):    Well that's interesting. It copied the color this time too.
Eonwe Valar (23:28:53):    This week's bonus event: Legion Dungeons.
WoW's thirteenth anniversary celebration ends Thursday.
The new raid comes out Tuesday, launching first the Normal and Heroic difficulties, so check out this preview of Antorus, the Burning Throne.
There were also some hotfixes this week.
Eonwe Valar (23:29:51):    And it's changed how links are displaying too. For a chat system going down in two weeks, I wouldn't expect text output to change, heh.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:30:04):    Videos too :)
Eonwe Valar (23:30:15):    For the record, there are links in there. I'
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:30:16):    Might as well leave on a high point!
Eonwe Valar (23:30:25):    'll let you have fun mousing over the text to find them :}
Eonwe Valar (23:30:31):    hehehe I guess so :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:30:34):    Eh, they come out in blue for me.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:30:41):    So it's not difficult.
Eonwe Valar (23:30:47):    Really? They're not showing for me.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:30:50):    Of course the transcript might be another matter :) [Note: All special formatting is removed to be "text only" and new formatting put in, including links.]
Varda Valar (23:31:54):    Aiya
Eonwe Valar (23:31:57):    Makes me wonder what they changed in my settings then, because I didn't change anything. Although I got some weird disconnect messages a few times last night, and had to shut down AIM completely to get it to work right again.
Arien V (23:32:08):    Aiya Varda :)
Eonwe Valar (23:32:11):    Oh well, on with the meeting :}
Eonwe Valar (23:32:15):    And Heya Varda :}
Varda Valar (23:32:33):    Aiya :)

Eonwe Valar (23:32:49):    Heroes of the Storm:
Varda Valar (23:32:59):    Aye, Luthien-T is a different person and honor type than Luthien-V. One reason for the honor titles.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:33:00):    Aiya Varda!
Eonwe Valar (23:33:33):    Some hotfixes came out this week.
A new PTR is up as well. Check out the patch notes, and if you're interested in trying it out, it'll be available until December 11th.

Eonwe Valar (23:34:02):    Hearthstone:
Eonwe Valar (23:34:29):    There's a new Hearthside char up discussing the design of Dungeon Runs.
Also out: Kobolds & Catacombs - Tale of the Fox Part 2.

Eonwe Valar (23:34:43):    Lord of the Rings Online:
Eonwe Valar (23:35:04):    A new letter from Executive Producer Rob Ciccolini is out. Read it here.
Eonwe Valar (23:35:44):    Any other gaming news?

Ar-Pharazon-V (23:36:20):    Dragon event started in Heroes of the Storm (or was that last week already?). Couple of quests for portraits.
Eonwe Valar (23:36:30):    Last week.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:36:35):    Heh, alright.
Eonwe Valar (23:36:58):    But it is multi-step, so if you're interested and haven't started yet, you might want to get on it so you don't miss it :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:37:18):    Yepyep, though you have until mid-late december. And they're not that long.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:37:26):    Just don't start a day in advance ;)
Eonwe Valar (23:37:33):    Aye :}

Eonwe Valar (23:38:28):    Tolkien:
Eonwe Valar (23:38:42):    Now is a good time to whisper me Tolkien topics if you have one.
Eonwe Valar (23:40:53):    Ok, Varda has a topic for us :}
Varda Valar (23:41:26):    Thank you. :)

Varda Valar (23:42:05):    First off, we've made it through a full round on the rp. Auros is going to be the next poster. We kind of put most of the weight on Eonwe this run.

Varda Valar (23:42:08):    Second:
Varda Valar (23:42:39):    I could use your help with suggestions for potential membership entry questions over the Return of the King.
Varda Valar (23:42:58):    I'm getting stuck in a rut.
Varda Valar (23:43:27):    They need to be easy enough for someone who hasn't read it in a while,
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:43:26):    Things like, who crewed the boats Aragorn etc arrived on at Minas Tirith? :)
Varda Valar (23:43:42):    and they need to be something that is different between the movies and books.
Varda Valar (23:44:02):    So, aye. :) Just like that, although I need your input on if the question is too hard.
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:44:23):    It might be, but I dunno. Haven't read the books in a while myself, and I still know that, so yes.
Varda Valar (23:45:10):    Any other comment on hardness? If ok, I'll put it in the list. :)
Arien V (23:46:35):    hmmmm "what is the promise that Gollum made and kept when he met Frodo and Sam?#
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:47:10):    ..Unless that's leading them to the black gate, I'm at a loss for that too.
Arien V (23:47:37):    wel dear that exactly is the answer :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:49:09):    Ah, but that is also in the movie, though perhaps just EE :)
Varda Valar (23:51:28):    Seems as if it should've been in the main. Getting the movies mixed up, heh.
Arien V (23:52:33):    you can go always go deeper into it and ask what happened there , what they discovered once they got there
Arien V (23:52:43):    and what the consequence was
Arien V (23:55:06):    Gosh i do love that picture of Gildor on the opening page of the Site :)
Varda Valar (23:55:38):    The pic rotates every time we enter the site. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:55:38):    suddenly, everyone was refreshing the front page over and over ;)
Varda Valar (23:55:47):    hehe, it happens!
Arien V (23:55:52):    oops ay :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:56:31):    is that Gildor? *checks picture* nope, Haldir
Varda Valar (23:56:37):    I like them all, so it's fun to click through for a bit.
Arien V (23:57:17):    oh Haldir .. i thought the quote was Gildor s but you are right :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:57:29):    Gil-galad...
Ar-Pharazon-V (23:57:30):    ah :D
Monday, November 27, 2017
Arien V (00:00:43):    lets think .. Festivals hmm how about that as Tolkien topic?
Varda Valar (00:01:51):    We need some more entry questions for RotK too, if you come up with some more.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:02:39):    How well did Merry do at the Black Gate? :)
Varda Valar (00:02:52):    hah
Varda Valar (00:03:27):    Not sure that's quite fair. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:03:35):    hehe
Eonwe Valar (00:03:47):    We probably don't want to get into trick questions, like "What did Arwen say to the Witch-King before she slew him?" :}
Varda Valar (00:03:57):    hehehe
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:04:11):    "I am no man! I am.. an elf!"
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:04:23):    *shows ears*
Varda Valar (00:04:33):    /facepalm
Arien V (00:04:46):    but you can ask "how did the prophecy get fulfilled about the death of the Witchking*
Arien V (00:04:54):    and Phari *giggles*
Varda Valar (00:05:35):    That would be more correct. Not sure we could say it was different between the books and movie.
Eonwe Valar (00:06:03):    I think Merry's only there in the EE.
Varda Valar (00:06:32):    Aye, Merry and Pippin were both leading the charge behind Aragorn. Don't think that was just EE?
Varda Valar (00:06:47):    Then everyone else started passing them. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:07:20):    They were probably only just getting to the frontline again when the fighting was over? :)
Arien V (00:07:25):    uhmm sorry for being a noob .. but what is EE?
Eonwe Valar (00:07:31):    I meant Merry was only at the fight between Eowyn and the Witch-King in the EE. But aye, I think that clip of Merry and Pippin at the Black Gate was in theatrical release.
Eonwe Valar (00:07:38):    EE = Extended Edition.
Arien V (00:07:49):    ah thanks :)
Eonwe Valar (00:08:04):    MP :} Best we all know what we're talking about :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:08:14):    That is wise!
Varda Valar (00:08:24):    Agreed. Acronyms are a bane. AAAB
Eonwe Valar (00:08:30):    :}
Varda Valar (00:09:44):    Merry didn't make it to the Black Gate. The Witch-king encounter was on the Pelennor Fields that are outside Minas Tirith.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:10:06):    In what environment did Frodo wake up after their rescue from Mordor?
Eonwe Valar (00:11:13):    "How much Lembas did Gollum throw over the side as they climbed to Cirith Ungol?"
Varda Valar (00:11:20):    heh
Varda Valar (00:11:34):    I still enjoy how many elves fought at Helm's Deep?
Varda Valar (00:11:46):    but wrong book
Eonwe Valar (00:13:18):    "How did the Ring get destroyed?"
Eonwe Valar (00:13:36):    Althought probably alike enough in book and movie.
Varda Valar (00:13:43):    Takes three books to tell?
Varda Valar (00:14:46):    Movie shows Gollum holding the Ring instead of the finger with the Ring. Guess they thought they were cleaning it up?
Eonwe Valar (00:15:29):    I meant mostly the end part at Mount Doom, but yeah, I guess the "long version" would be somewhere around 6 books long. :} Then we could group them in pairs and sell them as 3 books! :}
Varda Valar (00:15:38):    Hey right!
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:15:39):    Can't put it on his own finger when there's another one in it!
Varda Valar (00:16:06):    At least they didn't show Gollum putting it on his own finger.
Varda Valar (00:16:56):    I saw the whole thing in one paperback. Would have been tough to try to actually read.
Varda Valar (00:20:07):    Is it really that hard for us to come up with a stack of questions? Added these to the list, well some of them. :)
Varda Valar (00:20:38):    Three
Eonwe Valar (00:20:40):    And avoid ones the movies can also answer? A little bit :}
Varda Valar (00:21:00):    One I might not be able to use.
Varda Valar (00:21:04):    Heh, true.
Arien V (00:22:29):    hmmm .lets think .. where did Aragorn first recognised as king and how?
Arien V (00:22:50):    after in Minas Tiriith
Varda Valar (00:22:59):    Do we say who recognized? Oh ok
Arien V (00:23:07):    after trhe battle of Pellenor
Varda Valar (00:23:12):    Are you referring to Ioreth?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:23:27):    "Who is Ioreth?"
Arien V (00:23:41):    yes and her athelas verse and where they found it and how it was used
Arien V (00:24:29):    *chases Bergil through all of Minas Tirith to find it* *cough*
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:24:40):    "How did Saruman die?"
Arien V (00:26:39):    How did the Hobbits find the Shire after returning home .. as in what state?#
Varda Valar (00:27:15):    Something like that could work too.
Varda Valar (00:29:20):    I used to try to come up with the questions off the top of my head, then started making lists to speed up typing. Tests were taking too long and people needing to leave.
Eonwe Valar (00:30:00):    Any questions about the Scouring are probably good questions.
Varda Valar (00:30:08):    Aye
Eonwe Valar (00:31:17):    "How was Lobelia received when she was freed?" "What happened to Lotho?" "Who was Sharkey?"
Varda Valar (00:31:49):    Those are good. And we only have Saruman's word on Lotho...
Varda Valar (00:32:47):    Ok, I thank you all for your wonderful suggestions. :)
Arien V (00:32:50):    How did Frodo know it was time to return for him to leave the Shire?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:33:39):    What did Sam say when he came back from the Grey Havens?
Arien V (00:34:25):    when he returned ^^ use that wording otherwise the answer is too obvious :)
Eonwe Valar (00:34:31):    Sam: "Well, it's Tuesday. Meatloaf night!"
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:34:32):    Ah, yes :D
Varda Valar (00:34:46):    hehe
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:35:39):    Who did Merry offer his purse to on the way home?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:35:46):    (if I recall right)
Varda Valar (00:35:53):    Well, it is an entry question and sometimes they could stand a little help. ;)
Varda Valar (00:36:03):    Tobacco purse
Eonwe Valar (00:36:04):    It was his bag of pipeweed.
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:36:08):    That, then.
Eonwe Valar (00:36:10):    Or that works.
Varda Valar (00:36:11):    Aye, pipeweed
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:36:18):    But the question is, who did he offer it to?
Varda Valar (00:37:01):    aye, Saruman. Regretted it too
Arien V (00:39:22):    how was Pelargir taken?
Varda Valar (00:39:38):    Could get an article on that? :)
Arien V (00:40:04):    could do sure if you want :)
Varda Valar (00:40:20):    I mean, how do you want to see it answered?
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:40:31):    "By force!"
Varda Valar (00:40:36):    Hey, I'd love articles on any of the battles. :)
Varda Valar (00:40:41):    heh
Varda Valar (00:41:37):    Think an entry person will be able to keep straight names like Pelargir and Pelennor?
Arien V (00:41:49):    Aragorn called the undead .. the spirits of the oathbreakers and they stormed forward . that their weapons were blunt didnt matter .. their terror alone and the fear they spread was enough
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:41:51):    could clarify it with "harbor" or something?
Varda Valar (00:42:55):    That might help, aye.
Arien V (00:43:07):    to go deeper you could ask .. why was it necessary?
Varda Valar (00:43:44):    More than one reason. Which would be called "right"?
Arien V (00:43:52):    Because the Pirates of Umbar were approaching Minas Tirith from the Sea
Arien V (00:45:18):    Obviously if they wouoldnt be stopped that cuts of the supply route and would mean reinforcement for Sauron's arrmy
Arien V (00:47:00):    The Army of the Dead was needed because the numbers of the Rangers were too small .. only through the "Shortcut* through the Paths of the Dead they could make the speed
Arien V (00:47:31):    But that wouldnt be expected of an entrant :)_
Varda Valar (00:48:31):    What should we expect for the answer?
Arien V (00:48:48):    Just the first sentence i said
Arien V (00:48:59):    Because the Pirates of Umbar were approaching Minas Tirith from the Sea
Varda Valar (00:49:06):    What about fulfilling the oath?
Arien V (00:49:20):    yes that too
Arien V (00:49:38):    those two i think
Varda Valar (00:50:15):    Thank you all for the great input. :)
Varda Valar (00:50:29):    *picks up a hammer*
Varda Valar (00:50:46):    *it streams confetti as it goes Thump!*

Varda Valar (00:50:50):    After-meeting!
Arien V (00:52:57):    thank you for this too :)
Eonwe Valar (00:52:57):    Yeah, I suppose it was about that time :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:53:47):    Yay for productivity!
Varda Valar (00:54:37):    Welcome to Discord, Eonwe. :)
Varda Valar (00:54:43):    We also have Arien
Eonwe Valar (00:54:44):    Thanks :}
Eonwe Valar (00:57:04):    I still say the name makes it sound like some trick of Melkor :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (00:57:48):    I'm familiar with another Discord, who was based on Q from Star Trek :)
Arien V (00:57:58):    Turned into beauty greater than intended , Eonwe :)
Varda Valar (00:59:14):    The name is not my favorite, but it's one of or the best program of its kind right now, used by a lot of kins.
Varda Valar (00:59:42):    You can have a lot of other servers on the list and bounce between them with just a click on the server button on the left.
Varda Valar (01:00:29):    All of you just helped members in our future. :)
Arien V (01:01:09):    it gets often abbreviated as Disc :)
Arien V (01:01:24):    makes you think of Pratchett eh?
Varda Valar (01:01:37):    :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:01:52):    hehe

Ar-Pharazon-V (01:05:02):    Want gaming report yet?
Varda Valar (01:05:51):    The flashgaming? Sure. If you want to tell your personal, that's up to you. :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:06:00):    hehe
Varda Valar (01:06:04):    This is non-official time, any talk is peachy.

Ar-Pharazon-V (01:07:44):    Starting with the flashgaming then!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:08:02):    3 rather odd games this week,not very long.
Eonwe Valar (01:09:56):    My time to go has come. Take care, good night, sleep well, and have fun :}
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:10:00):    namarie!
Varda Valar (01:10:44):    Namarie!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:11:00): is the first one! A parking game. You get a car, move it through obstacles and into the parking area. Quite difficult not to bump into anything, and you need to park pretty precisely.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:15:09): is a sort of rpg game, where you basically have to do several tasks around the house each day. Gets rather weird and creepy as you go along.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:20:17): is the third game, you play a dog who has been abandoned by his owner... with the limited commands/abilities you have, try to find all the different endings! Some dark, some good, some silly!

Ar-Pharazon-V (01:21:05):    Blizzard gaming!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:22:01):    Heroes of the Storm: Still level 231, but some good progress on the event quests. Finished the first two quests, and two thirds of the way on the last. Almost there!
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:23:48):    Very interesting brawl, unique so far. Instead of facing another team with a choice of 3 random heroes, you get to select between a whole bunch of fixed heroes, though not all of them (some might be broken or just impractical). Then proceed along a few routes and checkpoints, fighting off zerg ambushes and elite heroes, to get to the end. Some practice may be required, but it's not that difficult. You need to win them for them to count for the reward chest, though.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:24:22):    I was in doubt between 3 heroes to use, Valla, Nazeebo and Gul'dan... and ultimately won one on each, and liking the choices I made :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:24:44):    I hope we'll see more of such PvE brawls, rather than PvP :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:26:11):    Diablo 3: Level 47 now with my seasonal crusader, only need to reach level 50 to complete chapter one of the season journey, done the other objectives. Going well on master difficulty, fast xp :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:28:51):    Hearthstone: Still pushing the different classes forward a bit. Another unique brawl, this one kinda inspired by the upcoming dungeon system where you build your deck as you go along. Both players start with only a few cards, and every turn you get to discover a new card to go into your deck, and your hand is randomized. Can even get cards you've already played which are already on the board, which is one way to get a winning advantage.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:29:33):    I ended up with a minion that, when killed, stays on the board and revives if you play 4 cards in one turn. With the starting cards all being 1 mana, that was pretty good, and I ended up with 3 of those minions on the board. Opponent couldn't get past that.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:29:58):    WoW:
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:31:03):    New pet from the old raids! Drafty, my second pet from the Throne of Four Winds. We ended up shifting the raids-day from monday to friday, starting this reset, because the others in the group are getting a raidgroup together for current raids. So we had another raid-day on friday, but no new pets there.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:33:06):    We cleared Tomb of Sargeras heroic one last time, next week we start Antorus. But that's fine, we've pretty much gotten everything we wanted, so should be ready for it. Time to replace all the gear once again :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:33:44):    Reminds me, I should make a new gear wishlist before our first raid. Made one for Tomb too, was very useful when deciding what to bid on.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:33:53):    And what to use bonus seals on, too.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:35:22):    Continuing to work on Talon's Vengeance, 270 more marks required. Not going very fast right now, some friends I used to leech a few marks from (along with 10 alts or so of that person) have been rather busy. But I'm sure things will pick up again, and I'm getting used to the proper sources as well.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:37:04):    Falcosaur quests finished! Tonight I reunited my fourth falcosaur hatchling with his mother, getting her as the last of the mounts. Been a fun project, lasting about 2 months (skipping a day due to mistakes made or lack of time, on occasion) to get all 60 quests done. Lots of pet battles, lots of weird configurations needed. 4 toys obtained to dress up the falcosaur with, makes for a rather silly combination if you use all 4.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:37:32):    But now it's done, and all the rewards got, and a lot of time saved from here on ;)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:39:47):    Legionfall supplies also done, thanks to a few class hall missions! Completed my first 50-contribution achievement, with the nether disruptor. I'll get the other 2 buildings as soon as they're available for construction, shouldn't be more than a few days, and I'm glad to have the supplies for them already. No more doing all the broken shore world quests, just 4 for the occasional emissary from here on, I suspect :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:41:14):    Still no luck on the wailing caverns pet dungeon, though I did get a duplicate of the uncommon quality pet, a snake. Strangely, different color scheme than the first. Have done no deadmines pet dungeon yet, since part of the monday to friday switch meant switch that from friday to monday, so I'll do it tomorrow :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:43:38):    With the raid already completed on thursday, we decided to dedicate today to the weekly quest of doing 4 mythic dungeons. In a bit of an experiment, we gathered 2 groups out of my raidgroup, and I did some serious keystone mythic-ing for the first time, at keystone levels 8, 9 and 11. Can be quite tough, but less difficult than I feared. With some Antorus gear, getting to level 15 for the appearance-unlock should be very doable.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:45:59):    Even got a new cat-trinket out of it too, originally a Karazhan-trinket, but at the keystone level we completed it, on par for ilevel with heroic Tomb, and with ilevel the same, better than one of the best Tomb-trinkets I already had. Quite happy with that, because with cat being my off-spec, it can be very hard to gather raid-trinkets that others want for their main-specs in a reasonable time-window, so it'll be some time before I replace it with Antorus-stuff.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:47:55):    Also been killing the anniversary-bosses with 3 characters that miss unique loot-appearances from them, every day. Can take up quite a bit of time in the day, especially since the green dragons can be very difficult. Did not yet get a specific hammer I'd like, but I did get some other pieces, including a nice-looking sword for my warrior. I hope the bosses will be back again next year, because we can only do it a couple more times this year.
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:49:24):    And finally, got a bit of progress going in Argus again, advancing towards the Xenedar and freeing some parts of the Army of the Light. Soon I should be able to rescue Xe'ra and unlock the first cutscene :)
Ar-Pharazon-V (01:49:36):    And that's my report for this week!
