Wow, there’s so much to report on since the release has come out. I’ll try to sum up everything I’ve done and some of my goals.

  • I’ve explored all of Borean Tundra.
  • I saw a Tuskar repair guy, I went to repair, next thing I know I’m in Dragonblight…Turtle Boats, Dav want.
  • I’ve done almost all of the Borean Tundra Quests.
  • I’ve ran Nexus with Meleah, Mustafah, Furyen, and Dezaras. See previous post for Dance Party.
  • I guilted everyone into putting more money into the guild bank.
  • In a silly effort to find…flightpaths?…Dalaran…? I don’t remember….Mustafah and I searched most of Sholazar Basin. Found Nesingwary, and discovered that fighting level 77’s isn’t that hard….yay PVP gear and kickbuttedness.
  • Have only leveled to 71.5. I’m happy with that. Taking my time has been more entertaining than I thought it was.
  • I’ve made friends with Murlocs….it upsets and excites me….I can understand them now too….makes me want to go back to Wetlands and see if I understand them when they yell at me.
  • I’ve said the words, “They are so cute.” in reference to Murloc babies.
  • I’ve learned that Orcas will NOT teleport you to Dalaran….and am laughing because I told a bunch of people in General chat that they do… (thanks BRK)
  • I’ve taken screenshots that I need to post.
  • Thanks to Engineering, I now have more toys than ever (I’m Batman).
  • I’ve seen Jaffa level, and it made me very happy.
  • I got a Rhino, his name is Carl.
  • Gold is easy to get in Northrend, and I think this is why mammoth mounts cost 20k.
  • I’m still fighting the good fight against DEHTA (I killed me some mammoths….even the babies….it gave me the “covered in blood” buff….Yay!)
  • ….sigh….Made a DeathKnight. He looks exactly like Davlin, his name is Davlinster. I’m original like that. No Jaffa….that saddens me….this DK obviously lacks taste.
  • Helped a hunter find a kickbutt worm pet. Dueled him, defeated him. I still rock.
  • Made an explosive decoy
  • Ran Old Hillsbrad dressed like a female gnome with a Beehide hairdo because the Old Hillsbrad instance won’t let you enter as a Female Dranei. I was a female dranei because of a transporter malfunction….sadly….this happens a lot….
  • Went AFK in the middle of a bunch of level 70’s and 71’s to make dinner, came back ten minutes later and there were corpses all around my body, and Jaffa was just finishing with the last one…Good Jaffa…you still rock.
  • Thanked Elune for the Teleporters and Hearth stone, now I can make it anywhere with just the click of the button, unlike all you other guys who have to wait for boats or find Dalaran. HAHA. I WIN!

I’m pretty sure that’s everything I’ve done that’s noteworthy, although its easy to see that I might have been forgetting something. I’m contemplating moving on from Borean Tundra to the Howling Fjord or Sholazar Basin after I’ve finished this ton of quests (at about 10 left now I think, although they could easily be chain starts). We’ll see… But I shall fully explore every aspect of this game in all my Huntery Goodness. Death Knight Davlinster be Darned!

Ok guys, so here’s the deal. Straight up, so that you know! Anything that you recieved PRE-KARA will be replaced by green “uncommon” loot from quests. Flat out. There it is. Plain as day. Do you have pre-kara gear? Not anymore. BUT! If you have Kara Gear or PVP gear, the quest rewards don’t even begin to match up.

In other notes, Engineers REJOICE! With the advent of Eternals instead of Primals, all engineers were crying that the Zapthrottle Mote Extracter would become useless–BUT FEAR NOT My Engineering Brethren, its even more useful before. In Burning Crusade, when you’d use the Zapthrottle, you’d get one type of Mote from one type of Gas Cloud. NO MORE! Now, if you see a steam cloud, you get Crystallized Fire (Mote of Fire Equivalent) AND Crystallized Water. A good place to farm these is near the Gnome Air Strip in northern Borean Tundra.

Finally, other than the insane overcrowding reminiscent of my first trip to NYC, the WOTLK is amazing. I’m loving the entire thing in every way, including that engineers can now disassemble killed robots for parts (This might not be new, I’ve only recently switched to mining and have never had a miner’s pick before now).

The use of Airplanes in replace of Gryphons for flight paths also makes me very happy.

Making a DeathKnight? Bring him over to our guild. I made one for studying purposes, his name is Davlinster. Its original….shhhh. I don’t want to play a Death Knight, I’m a very proud hunter, but I do want to run with them and see what they can do. So if a DK is about to be your main, then please level him fast.

Oh, did the quest to free gnomes from being part robot remind anyone else of the old sonic the hedgehog cartoons with dr. robotnik?

I’ve got a Rhino now too…..his name is Carl….and the knockback feature is awesome. (TIP FOR HUNTERS: Turn off Knockback and Cower automatics, make them so you have to push the button, or else he’ll use Knockback WAY too soon, or he’ll use Cower too much and be a horrible tank. Do this and you’ve got an awesome new tanking pet….won’t replace Bubba the Gorilladin….but pretty good still. Probably a good defensive pet for Alterac Valley me thinks. Yeah, I know, pets are becoming High Maintenance, personally, I love it, but I’m a hunter who’s a glutten for punishment.)

Oh, and I’m officially an enemy of D.E.H.T.A. (Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals). They give quests that encourage Anti-Hunterisms….including collecting my gorgeous dwarven ears and messing with our traps. I’m against the “Loot Crazed Poachers” but I’m they emphasize anti-hunter, sadly, I must once again advocate “Night Elves….always a pain in my  butt.”

Once more, and finally, I’m encouraging you all to A) take your time leveling, enjoy the fun stuff and let all of those people who are fast leveling rush past you, that way the overcrowding will only be an issue for them, not us. and B) donate to your Guild Bank today: Better Gear means Higher Repair Bills. DO IT! If we start emptying the bank faster than we fill it I might have to return to the old method of No One gets Bank Repair Funds. Harsh, but necessary to fill the coffers. It would only be temporary but, hey, it’d solve the problem.
