On Tuesday Jocy picked up Unseen Influence, and then ran the Rumble in the Jungle, earning 6 fragments. She then went after the Night Haunter, and gathered one more fragment, for 7 total on the day. That was all she could get.
Back at it on Wednesday, Jocy hung out around the Rumble and talked a nervous horde rogue into taking on the first boss with just the two of us and our bodyguards. The battle went smoothly but only garnered one fragment. Feeling a little more confident, the rogue hung around for the second boss. This one went a little rougher, but rogue stayed alive and the outcome was the same - dead boss. Jocy picked up two fragments this time, and she now had her ten fragments for the day (counting the 7 she picked up the day before). The third boss would have been a lot trickier with only the lone rogue so Jocy had to bid him goodbye and good luck. There was no point in trying to get an extra fragment from the third boss because Unseen Influence stops taking them at 10. Once ten are turned in, Jocy can't get another Unseen Influence quest until the next day.
Jocy turned in her ten fragments and earned 1500 more rep. She is only 1500 rep - ie, one more turn in of Unseen Influence away from reaching Revered with the Awakened. Let's hope the Kra'nak mission pops, which would improve her chances. If she's lucky tomorrow will be the day.
Jocy was out of bed early on Thursday morning. Today could be the day. Feeling confident, she headed immediately for the Rumble area. Luck was with her. A mage and a druid were already standing around in the arena. No waiting. We killed all three bosses. Luck quickly abandoned her. The Rumble dropped only 6 fragments. She was hoping for seven. Her next stop was the Fangrila swamp, her target the Night Haunter. The Haunter dissappointed, too, dropping only one fragment and she had to have two. Jocy has seven fragments, leaving her three short.
Well, that sucks. Jocy isn't ready to give up, though. She already had the Ruins of Kra'nak as her fall back. She won't be on the mission, but based on the Rumble she can probably still collect fragments there. Jocy and Tormmok flew to the Aktar flight master. The entrance to Kra'nak is nearby. They had to dissuade a few mobs that Jocy wasn't interested in completing the mission. She went directly to the area where the elite boss spawns. Jocy was unlucky once again, the boss having been killed just before she arrived. So close. The carcass was still simmering. She won't get any fragments from there.
Jocy heaved a large sigh, pounded on Tormmok's knee to get his attention, and got to work. The rumor is that small treasures lined with a purplish light might contain fragments. Jocy doesn't remembering seeing such things when she's done this mission, but then at the time she wasn't trying to collect them.
They killed a few more mobs who didn't have the sense to stay away, and it only took about five minutes before Jocy spotted a smal purplish item hanging from a tree. Jocy picked it - a fragment dropped into her hand. Woo Hoo! Jocy needs only two more fragments!
Jocy got a little excited (a little?) and started running around looking for the purple things, mobs trailing along, Tormmok swatting them away.
She found another one, but couldn't get hold of it because she was surrounded by the trail of mobs that were following her. It took a little while to kill them all. With corpses all around her, she couldn't see the purple thing. Did some other player grab it while she was busy? Oh, she'd go all PVP on the b-tard if that's the case.
Tormmok waited patiently as Jocy still steamed. "Come on," she told him, we'll have to find another if we can." She took one step, Tormmok following, and there it was. Tormmok had been standing on it. Jocy smacked him and picked up the item from inside the size twenty footprint. Jocy opened it.
It held TWO fragments. Jocy has her ten fragments. And that, is that. Jocy has earned the Draenor Pathfinder Achievement.
