Day 2 into Patch

I’m pretty much stuck on 160 insciption. I wasn’t prepared enough. I I don’t have enough of the herbs I need, and at 90 gold a stack of herbs required to make it just wasn’t worth it. I don’t have a enough stacks for the next phase either, but I should be right once I get to outland skill – have plenty of outlands herbs stashed away.

I wasn’t going to have the time to go kill some mobs so I had a bash at the weapons dummys in Ironforge. I’m not quite happy with where I have my points, I can’t disect them as they are because Armory is still showing the old tree.

But between a Mana Pot, a Fiend, and a Dispersion – I bashed the dummys in Iron forge for a bit to test the new tree, and Its ok – I can see an increase in damage, and the Shadowweave nerf hasn’t done an terrible thing. Haven’t run a Dps Metre yet,

Got to remember to throw in Devouring plague, which as a dot that costs 600 odd mana its a little expensive, but I’m assuming as its shadow damage that it will be affected by VT and VE

Tried to do a BG to test out my new spells, but server had a fit, and I got booted, so I gave up, and had an early night.( I’m chewing through Book 3 of the Kris longknife series by Mike Shepard. Kris is no Honor harrington, but I get her pet computer is much like Nimtz Honors tree cat.)

I did run around doing some of the achievements, got to 20 drinks out of the 25 for the drinking achievement. Goldshire Inn has a lot of alchohol.

Your achievments are announced in guild chat. Not sure I like that..

and I also tried to do the falling 65 feet achievement. I can tell you what doesn’t work.
Slowfall ( tried on my mage)
Falling into water for a great height.( Tried the Lake outside Shatt )
Falling down the Darnasses waterfall ( I mounted up to get leverage away from the mountain, levitated away from the branches, dropped the levitate buff off, Fell more then 65 feet.. seriously thats like a kilometre down, and then levitating close to the bottem ( incase I hit trunk ) I then levitated into blue water got fatigued, but made it back safe – and NO acheivement.
Stamming up and falling above a’dal.
Stamming up, falling from A’dal and hitting dispersion as soon as you start falling.

I have read some of the forums, so I will try what everyone else has done now..

but the most interesting things was – I had stammed up to about 12k health ( in my pvp gear) I was getting hit for just over 12 k fall damage ( tried that twice) so I figuired 90% of that damage reduced for dispersion sounds awesome. So I tried it.

Dispersion does not work for fall damage. That is not fair.
Is fall damage different to Physical damage? Cause I thought dispersion was ALL damage.

I need to test again, and I will screenshot the combat log – but did anyone else find the same?

    I must’ve tried everything to get that same achievement. No luck here, either. Though I’ve also been too lazy to just read online about what works.

    I’ll get it someday.

    right click the chat tab, uncheck guild announcements. that should help you with your achievement spam.

    for the falling one…jump off the scryer tier, and do it on one of the sides …not the lift so you hit the ground (not the ramp)

    the key is knowing what 65 yards is. it wont kill you but i think 75 does. i did it on aldor tier, just mounted, flew up, took a stab at teh distance let go and bam, achievement done…with 275 hit points left. I only have about 8xxx hitpoints. and I didnt use any gimicks like spells or scrolls or whatever.

    so the key seems to be to know where that 65 yard mark is. if your dieing your too high.

    Glad you had some replies answering the question because I’ve been going nuts trying to get this achievement on my Shadowpriest without Levitate. I was bummed when I landed in water and it didn’t work xD.
