I finally completed the quest for the Scepter of the Shifting Sands! Much gold and time spent of something that will hopefully be another Feat of Strength. I do enjoy running through the quest lines like that feeling that in some way I am helping to change Azeroth (even belatedly in respect to the AQ questline).

With the gold target, I passed 80k the other day despite spending a few thousand retraining my tailor for Inscription. I guess the main priority now is making sure I log in each day to do the minor and Northrend Glyph research. On the positive side I do have a bigger stock of glyphs and inks now.

Shifting Sands - Goal update

I have a few current goals in progress (as well as the ones form the earlier post).

I decided to try and complete the questline for the Scepter of the Shifting Sands (The AQ opening questline) which will be a FoS achievement in Cataclysm.
So far I have managed to complete the Green Shard quests, and most of the blue chain. I still have one remaing page from the Draconic for Dummies to obtain from Onyxia. I tried that this week with a PUG, but it seems someone didn't loot her so I couldn't get to the quest item. If I get that this week, I will have to defeat Maws in Azshara to complete that chain. The Red chain should be a fairly simple matter of defeating Nefarian in BWL, although again this week ended with a fail as we couldn't get past Chromaggus with just four 80s.
On the positive side, I got exalted with Brood of Nozdormu, got a full Avengers set (from AQ40) and completed my cooking recipe collection with Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops.

In other news...
I'm slowly getting closer to my goal of 100k gold by Cata. I surpassed 62k yesterday, still bringing in 1-2k per day, although this has slowed since I'm stocking up on certain things and the piles of Elementium Ingots and other mats I needed for the above quests cost quite a few k.

I also forged the Sulfuron Hammer in the event that the Eye drops from Ragnaros on an MC run. It's currently on the AH in the also unlikely event that some rich lazy legendary seeker wants to make me a sizable profit rather than farm all the mats themselves.

And finally, my best moment of the last week was getting the final Mask for the A Mask for all Occasions achievement, at 22.00 on the final day of Hallows End with one Trick or Treat attempt to spare.
