Sons of Oh Dear

As in "Oh Dear, another rep grind."

Last night our guild went to VoA. I received an invite, but was forced to decline because I was babysitting the Baby Tank and our neighbors' kids.

Our other three kids are out of town for spring break. Had that not been the case I would have drafted our oldest (who plays WoW once in a great while and understands that purple loot is wicked cool) to help out while we ran the instance. Now the Baby Tank is surprisingly low maintenance for a 2 year-old, but our neighbors have a 3 year-old son who, by contrast, is not.

When I used to lead raids I had a macro on one of my action bars that said "AFK...kid stuff" and flagged me as AFK. When you're the raid leader you can get away with that once or twice, but when you're the lowly OT you're asking to get kicked out of the raid.

So, as a result, I decided to work on opening up the Sons of Hodir rep. It's much easier questing when there are small children running around than trying to hold aggro on something.

It's not a terribly bad quest chain to get to the point where you're earning rep with them, but I know after doing the dailies for a while (and being repeatedly called "little one") it's going to get really annoying.

WTB Sons of Hodir tabard. Of course it would probably be way too big for me.

HUZZAH for Relics of Ulduar. Of course you'll have to fork out over 400g for a stack of 200. Hope you're rich :D

If I was rich, I'd have my epic flight skill :-\

SoH arent that difficult to grind rep with, and you dont have to buy the relics either. If you do the dailies every day you get at least 1 stack of 10, sometimes 2, just from killing the mobs required by the dailies.

Plus you are human, so you get extra rep :D

Misneach said...

Yeah, I had like 2 or 3 stacks before I even talked to the guys.

Keep an eye out for the Everfrost chips. They work the same way as the Netherwing eggs. :)

koalabear said...

yeah those get you around 350 rep.

rick finds a lot of them around the mountains surrounding the lake
