I got a question asking what/where I play in WoW, so I figured I’d just throw up a post in case other people care to jump in game to hit up some quests.  My main is Igorek, a Draenei Death Knight on Cenarion Circle in the guild Northrend Commonwealth.

Here is my armory page, if you are at all curious about my gear/achievements.

3.1 looks like it’s going to be hitting servers this Tuesday (or next Tuesday).  I better get my money together so I can purchase a dual spec.  You’re looking at a future Unholy DPS/Frost Tank Death Knight!  I shall report my findings as I find them.

Feel free to throw down your name/class/race/realm in the comments!

3.1 is coming extremely quickly, so I figured this might be a great time to talk about all the cool new changes and updates.  This might be one of the biggest patches to hit, giving everyone, hardcore, casual and hasual something new to do.  So let’s get to it.

RAIDS

Ulduar

We’ll hit the raids first, because, well, this is the biggest addition.  The raid of Ulduar is coming in this patch, which brings you 14 all new bosses for both 10 man and 25 man raids. On top of this, 10 of the 14 bosses will have “hard modes” that, when triggered, will give you better loot.

The lore of the zone is quite simple – Ulduar is an undiscovered vault of the Titans (large, powerful beings that shaped Azeroth) and we are going in to investigate.  Upon further investigation, we realize that the Titan vault is not holding vast treasures or superior knowledge, but rather the Old God Yogg-Saron, a ruthlessly evil entity whose vile influence has infected not only those who guard Ulduar, but a fair amount of Northrend (which we, the players, have come into contact with in various zones).  Because Yogg-Saron has broken free, Algalon the Observer is attempting to contact the Titans about his lack of imprisonment, which could cause Azeroth to be destroyed in order to save others.  The quest line has us going after Algalon to stop the transmission, and can only be completed when defeating most of the boss modes in their various hard modes.  Sound pretty badass, right?

The Lunar Festival has come!  Bring out the fireworks!  Go grab some dumplings!  It’s time to celebrate!

You’re probably going after that title like the world is ending, and I’m here to help you out.  As you may (or may not) know, I wrote up a much longer, more in-depth look at the holiday and some tips to complete it.  But I massively underestimated one thing:

The Elders of the Dungeons achievement is hella hard.

I mean, it’s not that hard, just involved, and you really have to commit some time to it, if only to navigate.  So we’re going to go through all the Dungeon Elders and try to find them.  Let’s go from the lowest level Elder to the highest.  C’mon!

Well I’ve been 80 for a little over a week now (I think?) and I figured I’d report on what I’ve been up to.  At the moment, a lot of content has opened up to me – I can finally run the high level dungeons and heroics, I can go around anywhere I want, I can get all the top level gear, enchants and gems.

But what I’m really working on is reputation and achievements.

I’ve completely dropped my normal questing duties (hitting up Icecrown has stopped completely at the moment) and I’ve decided to start doing my dailies.  My reasons are three-fold:

1. Gear and items.  Some of the reputations award you with epic quality gear, and lord knows I’m dying for some of that.  They also give you awesome items – revered with the Oracles (one of Sholazar Basin’s factions) can get you a “Mysterious Egg,” which, after seven days, will award you the possiblity of one of four rare pets (great for doing a pet-collecting achievement) or a large epic flying mount, a Green Proto-Drake.  These beasties are pretty badass.  I’m also an Unholy Death Knight spec, so this mount seems awfully perfect for me:

God I want one of these...

God I want one of these...

Check out some of my other reasons under the cut!

I was questing this morning in Storm Peaks (about halfway to 80!) and I came across this really awesome quest that I had to share with you.

Okay, so let me give you the back story leading up to this.  I’m helping out the small Goblin village of K3 (right at the bottom of the Storm Peaks) and one green fellow asks me to check out the mountain village of Sifreldar to find our friend.  I eventually find a Vykrul slave (a large Viking type villian) who asks me to help her out in exchange for the Goblin’s life.  In doing so, I mask myself as an enemy frost vykrul (the villiage is full of these evil female versions) and complete a series of quests to make myself known to the village. 

I end up killing a lot of different Vykrul for sport, I find an injured bear to train and ride around the village, partake in Bear Fighting and, eventually, I’m sent on this quest.  They put me on a giant frost proto-drake and send me soaring up to the skies.  The quest log tells me I have to kill 10 dragonriders, then speak to Thorim (the female Vykrul’s commander) to get further instructions.

This was what the quest ended up like. Keep in mind I’m the one on the left, disguised as one of the female Vykrul. I think you’ll get an idea who I am after awhile.

I’m trying to figure out how to get my UI visible when I record, so next time you can at least see what I was doing. But that was the quest. Now I have to kill Frost Giants. Apparently I’m currently on a huge questline that opens up the Faction the Sons of Hodir. Lots of fun!

I’ll probably share more fun quests with you as I complete them. Hopefully in better quality.

Well, some of you have probably decided to level up that Death Knight, or if you’re like me, you’ve decided to make it your main.  Questing as a DK is rather easy, since almost every quest (including some of the “Bring Three Friends!” quests) is soloable.  But eventually, you’re going to hit an instance.  Do you know what to do as a DK DPS?  Probably.  But here are some helpful hints and Boss tips that I’ve found rather helpful.  This is for NORMAL RUNS, since that’s the only version I’ve done before.
