Getting a new mount has a noticeable effect on me; a greater feeling of attachment to the game, and a compulsion towards immersing myself in WoW. The reward system in action.
I really need to go check a few mount bosses for soloability. The problem is they’re mostly the final bosses of raids; Al’akir, Lich King, Yogg-Saron, and Deathwing each require me to clear an entire raid just to attempt. Alysrazor sounds doable, though, and I’m pretty sure only needs one trash pack cleared. Perhaps I’ll try her tonight.
I noticed today that I’ve ended up with all four Legendary cloaks on my Monk. As well as separate helms for each of the meta-gems. Maximum Legendary. You might ask what use a class without a caster spec has for caster procs… The answer is Jade Crackling Lightning. Using this spell alone does almost as much damage as a full melee rotation, and benefits spectacularly from the 30% spell haste proc on the meta-gem. Along with a caster multistrike trinket I picked up on an offset roll, this gear set has been a huge asset for all the ganking– I mean, world PvP I’ve been doing to grind Bloody Coins.
So Alysrazor should be a piece of cake, right?
