What are your goals?

Smart001 over at That is Amazing (WoW)! has a sidebar on his blog with his character’s “to-do” list.  Seeing his list got me thinking about what my goals are, for Randul and myself as a player.

Randul’s Goals

  • Get the Argent Hippogryph.  This is just a great goal.  I’m only about 8 days from having this, but I’ll probably go for a couple of pets as well.  The reason this is a great goal is that it actually supports some of my other goals, such as…
  • Get the Albino Drake – I have a long way to go on this one, and the cost of buying all the mounts to get him interferes with some of my other goals.  Such as…
  • Get a Mekgineer’s Chopper.  The 12.5k gold cost of the things you simply have to buy from a vendor is outrageous.  I don’t see this happening soon, but it’s just embarrassing watching my wife jump into Fandark’s Chopper whenever she gets the chance.
  • Get a full epic pvp set.  I was big into pvp before Wrath came out.  I had every intention of leveling fast so I could get into level 80 pvp on the ground floor.  Turns out, things don’t always go as planned.  I do have one piece of epic 80 pvp gear though!  /proud  A guildmate mentioned doing some pvp and arena last night though, so this one could work itself out.
  • Get exalted with Sha’tari Skyguard.  This will allow me to spend MORE money to get a Nether Ray and a Nether Ray Fry.  Although I’ll be spending money, getting these will help with my other achievements, so I guess it works itself out.
  • Get the Champion of the Frozen Waste achievement.  I only need Heroic Culling of Stratholme (already did it once) and Malygos to complete this one.  It’s a matter of taking the time more than the ability to finish this.
  • and now the big one…Clear Ulduar.  I’m not being too greedy, I just want to clear 10-man Ulduar.  I think my guild has a great shot at this, and I really hope to clear it before the next major raid comes out.  I think we will.

Now for a few player goals

  • Level Calduin, my Hunter to 80.  I don’t foresee me doing any real DPS on him, especially in raids, but the sooner I get him to 80 the sooner the wife will have her Hunter at 80, which is a good thing.  She needs some variety.
  • Level a class that can heal to 80.  I’m not picky.  I’ll take ANY class that can heal.  It’s the only thing I don’t have at high level.  Right now it looks like the winner will be my level 33 Shaman, since the next highest level heal-capable character is a Paladin who is level 20.  He’s also on Undermine, so I’d have to pay 25 bucks to transfer him.  Another detterent.

There you have it.  My WoW-related goals.  Some goals you might be thinking I’d have that are similar to these, I’ve already accomplished.  I have my Netherdrake and am exalted with all of the Alliance factions.  I’ve cleared Naxxramas as well.  Those would have been on that list otherwise.

What are your goals, as a character and a player?

  1. Thanks for the shout outs man.

    For the Albino Drake, did you buy all the faction mounts you could?

    I am at 47 mounts, and have bought all the Talbuks (epic and non) from the Mag’har, and have bought all the epic (and non) mounts from all the factions I am exalted with. Once I get exalted with Silvermoon I will get my 50. Basically 30 of my 50 mounts will be faction mounts. Oh, also go to Shadowmoon Valley in Outlands and buy all the regular little flying mounts (epic and non). Those are the only mounts I have, I don’t have any special mounts except the Bronze Drake (HCOS timed), and the Cenarion Hippogryph (which is my favorite flyer).

    Good luck on the to-do list BTW, I found it help me stay focused when I am running circles around Dal not wanting to run any of my alts.

  2. I don’t have those mounts. At the moment, I’m in gold building stage of most of my to-do list. Once I feel I have a nice reserve of gold for Raiding repairs and enchants and so on, I’ll go and start buying mounts. I do hae some, but nowhere near as many as you.

    I also need to get the rep for the Talbuks, which I don’t see me doing. However, I have already got my Netherdrake, so I can just buy the rest of them and replace the talbuks with netherdrakes.

  3. Yeah, that grind for the maghar rep was a PITA. But, I love the mounts. Also, I use an add on called coconuts (or something similar) and it pulls up a random mount at the click of a button. Makes having all those mounts even more fun. 🙂

  4. Fandark Says:

    Don’t worry about the chopper. I’ve already stolen your wife 🙂

  5. @smart001 You can also do that with a macro.

    @Fandark If she gets a tat and starts wearing leather I’m coming to Canada to deal with you once and for all.
