I have finally left Desolace and moved on to greener pastures. Sort of. Knowing myself, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong. I’ll get to my screw-up in chronological order, so we have some stuff to cover first. Oh, I can’t wait… /played time: 1d 22h 32m.
I absolutely love having a pet when it comes to collection quests. Ooops, I aggroed something. Here, take him, Catr. [Open/collect/destroy item] Run away from Catr. Call Catr to me with full health and focus. I did it 10 times while collecting the kodo bones in the Kodo Graveyard, which spawn level 37 apparitions.
I went to the Magram Village and killed about 60 centaurs to get 15 ears and pulled the ‘sic Catr on their butts’ trick again when I was getting the meat supplies for [tag]Martek the Exiled[/tag]. I hearthed to Shadowprey Village after I turned in my Eastern quests, went to the mailbox and loaded up on all the gear I sent with Bankr (including Underwater Breathing Potions) and swam North to get my last 2 clam meats.
As I swam back, I aimed where I thought I needed to go to get back to the village and went to the bedroom to get dressed for work, chatted with my wife for a minute, put in my contacts, and came back just as I was about 30 feet from the dock, near the shore, no less. Awesome!
I dinged as I turned in the first quest and put another point in Spirit Bond (2/2) for 2% health regen every 10 seconds. My points are all in Beastmaster, per BRK’s First 40 Points build. It’s nice to just unleash Catr and go to town with damage.
When I was all done in Desolace, I tamed a level 34 Scorpashi Lasher for Claw 5 and flew to Camp Turajo to run to Duskwallow Marsh. Joana’s Horde Leveling Guide pointed out something I was completely unaware of, so I’m pretty sure it’s not all that well-known. At the [tag]Shady Rest Inn[/tag], just inside the scorched-looking area on the way in to the marsh, there are 3 objects that start quests that you turn in at [tag]Brackenwall Village[/tag]. Here are the items, Hoofprints, Theramore Guard Badge, and a Black Shield. Then I ran to Brackenwall Village and also bought the manual for Heavy Silk Bandages.
I had two quests to turn in at Ratchet, but I only recognized one of them as being in my log. Sure enough, I was missing one of them. I back-tracked and found out that I’d skipped a quest in Shimmering Flats, so I flew to Gadgetzan and started doing [tag]Lighten the Load[/tag]. I killed all of the carrion birds around a skeleton and logged to kill them again when I get home. I would have skipped the quest, but it looks pretty long, so there’s surely a nice reward at the end of it all.
That’s all for now. It’s been pretty quiet with the guild lately…lots of 3+days since last login. What’s up with all of you? Trying to get your mains to 70? LOL. Sound off.
