Critters Journey [42] All the wrong focus





  • Backstaged the 14 hour Gryfflethon
  • Ran with kinnies on open house Friday night – first SS boss 5 times, no armor drops for anyone, then HON for featured instance swag
  • Ran through all of Book 7 epic on BR



  • Started a new stream series with Bludborn
  • Watched a lot of streams



  • Nearly finished clearing out the Mirkwood landing with the Elves of Lothlorien, officially the highest level Loremaster I’ve ever played – 63.
  • My Warden experience continues to grow, about halfway through Lone Lands at 26, also the highest I’ve ever had a Warden.
  • Got my 3rd Pick a Mount box drop this year from lootboxes. 🙂



  • At the Academy Field Trip, we finished up with the quests near Gwingris then headed to Echad Eregion. Afterwards, I completed my level-50 class quest.
  • My Gladden warden ran the Pelargir Epic Battle – I still don’t like it
  • My Beorning finished up the Minas Tirith epic and headed for the Woses
