It Opens at the Close
On August 30, 2016, Iliera and Sionis jumped into World of Warcraft: Legion.
This expansion is marked for me with one word: Raiding.
Prior to Legion, despite 12 years of playing, I had never raided above LFR difficulty. I honestly didn’t intend to break that trend until we were slowly “encouraged” to participate by the questing mechanics of Legion. Here’s looking at you, Balance of Power questline.
As I finished my heroic progression run and unlocked the Violet Spellwing (which is awesome, btw), I started to feel the exhilaration of progression raiding fade. I spent more time chasing after a higher gear score, but as of today I’ve officially told our guild that it’s time for me to step back from raiding.
Things to Do
Battle for Azeroth releases on September 21, 2018.
That gives me less than six months to finish my Legion-related activities, which includes:
- Legion Pet Battles – My pet collection is seriously lacking!
- Leveling my Lightforged – I need them 110 by BFA launch!
- Leveling a Horde character – I plan on seeing the story of BFA from both sides!
- Mage Tower Challenges – Maybe… hopefully.
- Fishing Artifact Item
- Fishing Reputations
- Rank 3 Herbs
- First Aid 800
Once I have that stuff sorted, I still need to work on everything else pre-Legion!
The Mage Returns
A while back, I started playing a paladin. Becoming a healer opened so many doors to raiding and in hindsight I realize that healing was super helpful in allowing me to access a lot of the Mythic dungeons and Heroic content early on in the expansion.
Jokingly, I sent my mage to Pandaria on a kind of sabbatical. There he would learn to focus his energy once more and hopefully some day return to the fight.
Sionis has always held a special place in my heart. His digital story has been going on for 12 years now. When I sent him away to main my paladin… well it felt wrong. In fact, the longer I’ve been parted from him, the more I have felt guilty about it.
So, with Fynn finally taking a well deserved break after pushing through the heroic raid, it’s time to witness the return of Loremaster Sionis Sepher and his army of battle pets!
The world awaits!

I miss raiding. So many good memories can be created in that environment 🙂
But I think it is only natural to hit pause on the raiding button during times like this; where many finish up any goals Legion might still has to offer, while slowly preparing for what is to come in BfA.
Good list 😀 I was wondering, if you have heard of the blog challenges some of us participate in every two weeks? It’s over here;
A topic is chosen, and if you want, you can join in 🙂 You can read more about it on the About Page.
PS. It’s okay not to be on time. It has to be, because if not, I fail miserably, way too much, hah!)
Your transmog look very nice! If it’s your thing, then the sweet couple over at Wowable has a transmog contest every now and then called Marvellous Moggation Match 🙂
I don’t mean to spam you, just, maybe it’d be nice for you to participate in. The more the merrier in our lovely, open and very friendly blogging community 🙂
I have spend some very dedicated time in Legion catching all them pets! It’s a big project, and I am not finished yet, so I wish you luck on it. The addon called Pet Tracker has helped me out a lot; it places icons on your world map for those you have not captured, super handy 🙂

All of this sounds great! I’ll start participating soon! I do love transmog. Over the years my mage has collected quite a few times!! I love Pet Tracker and I also utilize WarcraftPets.com a lot!
Thanks for all the information! I’m happy to be a part of the community!

That’s really great news 🙂 Np – Looking forward to hear your take on things! 😀
When you say utilize WarcraftPets.com – in what way do you mean? I’m somewhat of a Pet Battle beginner myself, I only just took it up this expansion, so 🙂

I have an account with them that syncs with my battle.net information to show what I have, the rarity of each one, and compile information on the ones I still need!
You can quickly filter out pets that are no longer obtainable too! It’s really handy and gives me something to peruse when I’m not in the game.

Oooh, say what, I didn’t know one could do that. I only visited the forum of the site. Sounds like I should get that sync started, thank you 🙂
