Warlords of Draenor - Month 13

This was my Month, this spot, this mob. Over and over...
 
Gear & Raids:
McTacky - Item Level 723 (Ret)

Barely earned any Valor this month so item level just went up 2 points.

Raid Stuff to do:
● Clear Heroic Highmaul (1/7)
● Clear Mythic Highmaul (7/7)
Clear Normal Blackrock Foundary (10/10) Complete
● Clear Heroic Blackrock Foundary (9/10) (Need Heroic Blackhand)
● Clear Mythic Blackrock Foundary (0/10)
● Clear Heroic Hellfire Citadel (12/13) (Need Heroic Xhul'horac)
● Clear Mythic Hellfire Citadel (0/13)
● Glory of the Draenor Raider (14/17)
● Glory of the Hellfire Raider (12/13) (Need I'm a Soul Man)

Old Raid Stuff to do:
● Glory of the Pandaria Raider (22/31) (22/30 since hotfix)
● Glory of the Thundering Raider (22/23) (Lei Shen with Diffusion Chain Conduit)
● Glory of the Orgrimmar Raider (13/14) (Fire in the Hole! left)

Pets/Mounts/Toys:
I purchased the Wind Rider Cub Plush and Gryphon Hatchling Plush and got their in-game pets with them. Crooked got me a Grumpling. At 738 unique pets now. (McTacky's WarcraftPets profile).

With Toys, I obtained a heap, and now camping Timeless Isle for Warning Sign. Keep forgetting to do the Alliance Garrison Campaign each week on my Warlock for the toy from that.

I obtained the last mount from the Argent Tournament . All that is left to get the pony for my Squire, which can wait.

Still hunting the last two garrison songs that drop from Nefarian (Blackwing Descent) and  Kel'Thuzad (Naxxramas).

Fishing/Archaeology:
Not much archaeology, still 12 pristine artefacts to go left like last month.
● Draenor Clans (13/19), Ogre (9/10), Arakkoa (5/10)

Caught 10 lunkers again this month from Fishing. 80 to go for Reins of the Crimson Water Strider.

PvP:
I finished up Dwarf, Gnome and Pandaren Nemesis Quests. Just Draenei and Worgen left.

Did a heap of Wintergrasp. Now 70/100 wins for the Meta Achievement.

Crafting:
No progress on Jewelcrafting. Still 9 recipies to go.
● 1 Rep (Aldor), 3 Raid (Sunwell), 1 Dungeon (Old Hillsbrad), 1 World Drop (Cataclysm), 3 Tanaan Jungle Recipies

Thoughts
Every week I look forward to Thursdays the most, since that is when we are doing Draenor Raid achievements instead of progression.

Outside of Thursdays I feel spread thin, trying to do multiple things at once. I feel I got to get some of these things completed instead of going on piecemeal.

Active Grind:
Draenei & Worgen Nemesis ~need to get a group together for it
Archeology ~fewer pristine left, the harder it gets
Camping Warning Sign (respawns 30-60 min) ~a second to kill, hours of camping.
Fishing 80 Lunkers ~5 lunkers per hr  = 16 hrs total
Pet Leveling (almost 300 pets/4500 approx levels left) ~60.5 levels per day via Pet Charms = 74 days

Passive Grind:
Daily Heroic (once per day) ~15-25 minutes
30 Wintergrasp Wins (once every 2 hours) ~20-30 minutes
7 Alliance Garrison Campaign Quests (once every week) ~15-25 minutes

My plan was to just camp out the Warning Sign while doing Wintergrasp when it was up, since those two seem the easiest to completed 100% and get off the list. It is logical, however at 170 kills for the warning sign without it dropping means I could have gotten the fishing done in that time.
