Happy Blaugust everyone! Before I dig into this week’s theme, I wanted to keep up my monthly tradition of evaluating my goals, seeing how badly I failed at meeting them, and then steadfastly creating new ones anyway. Note: I wrote most of these goals before seeing the new quest content in WoW yesterday. I’m not sure if I really want to follow through with them anymore but I’m putting them here anyway because I don’t have any other goals in mind right now.
WoW: Finish one priest transmog set from WoD and the last one I need from MoP. Done! I’ve completed all the variants from MoP and the LFR set from Blackrock/Highmaul. It feels like cheating since I had most of it already from garrison missions but I’m still counting it as a win.
Level one allied alt to 50. Maybe?? Does boosting count? I boosted a highmountain tauren. I still want to level one normally so I can get the heritage armor though.
Figure out who my main will be for BfA. Done. Sort-of. I boosted that highmountain druid on a new server so I can potentially raid with Belghast. I think I would still be agonizing over my choice but the free loot faucet from the pre-launch event was enough to force me to choose so I didn’t miss out.
WoW: Complete at least one more WoD transmog set. I know I’m going to put this aside for a while once BfA launches but I’d like to finish one more before I do.
Complete “Raiding with leashes IV”. I am only missing the pet that only drops from 10N Lich King. I hate trying to get it because it feels like I’m wasting an attempt at Invincible, but I really want to finish this achievement so I can get my celestial bunny.
Level my druid through BfA. This is a no-brainer.
D3: Unlock adventure mode on a HC character. My hardcore mode achievement list is shameful. Although I’ve leveled to 70 with friends using their adventure mode, I never actually unlocked it myself. Time to fix that.

I’ve bought the remaining acievement pet at AH… after fair 2-week tries with 12 toons 🙂 So I could go and try for Invincible, yes 🙂
That is the smart way to do it! I’m suffering from the “sunk cost fallacy” now. I feel like I’ve sunk so much time into trying that I have to keep trying to get it the “legit” way even if it is dumb. I’d much rather have my slim chance at the fancy horse!
The Lich King’s ghoul was so elusive 🙂 I had all other pets collected 3 times and more, but this just won’t drop. So I decided ‘Screw it’.
