WotLK Recap : Day 6 (I think)

Is it 6 days since WotLK came out I'm just not sure anymore.

Anyway today when I logged on I did the daily cooking quest and farmed some kooking mats just for a change of pace.

After that I got stuck into the last of the quests I needed to get the Zul'Drak achievement and dinged to 78. An epic flying mount makes so much of a difference it's not funny, I don't know how I did without one for so long.

Anyway with Zul'Drak out of the way I went into Sholazar Basin again, but this time I had a flying mount, Yeah Baby! Can't get me now you damn nasty crocolisks!

But I digress, of I went on the epic creature grind that is the Nessinwary quest line, yes that crazy dwarf hunter is back, and I don't mean Bigredkitty.

This zone was by far the easiest of the zones to quest in that I've been in so far (the epic flier has something to do with it I'm sure). I stormed through that place pwning everything in sight, as usual. Unusually this turned out to be a good thing, since just about everything I saw was part of a quest I was on making my normal progression through a zone an effective leveling strategy for once.

But whats this? He's here again!?! And he's calling me the stalker. Yes thats right I ran into the warrior Khir several times again today and he's starting to get quite paranoid about it.

Here's me stalking my pray.

After that I went and got a meal and chilled out in Dalaran for a while. Then the panic set in. It's weekly maintainance tonight and I'm only 400k away from and I have only an hour left!

I blitzed over to Storm Peaks and started popping off quests as fast as I could. Then I hit a wall I was rushing and that meant I wasn't reading the quests too well, which meant I was screaming things at the monitor like "Where the hell is that bomb dispenser so I can blow up the damn mammoth!!" and "Who thought a quest in the middle of a F###### mine field was a F####### good idea!!". That mine field quest turned out ot be great fun as you had to step on a mine to blow yourself to the quest item, this took several attempts with bandaging and eating along the way as you can imagine. You then had to step on a mine to blow yourself back out of the mine field.

Why wasn't I using my new fangled epic flier?

Because some damn wise ass decided that that would be too easy and put little turrets around the mine field that shoot you down 280% flight speed or no.

Anyway with all my getting lost and discovering places It turned out that I needed less quests to finish the level that I thought and I dinged to 79 with 9 minutes before server shut down, I even had time to go and train my new skills, and Stunty is parked and getting rested xp in Ironforge as we speak.

So until next time this is Stuntyone the Incompetent Warrior signing off.

This may be a bad time to bring it up (as well as incredibly late), but for the sake of your alts that may or may not do this quest...

There *is* a path through the minefield. It runs in kind of a corkscrew pattern toward and away from the center.

No mines to worry about, so long as you stay in the middle of the path.
