Nice weekend of game time these past few days. I got to explore Storm Peaks, finish a few achievements, explore some more… oh and this:

Let the endgame begin!

Check out some more achievements after the jump!

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.

You could argue that questing in World of Warcraft is pretty run of the mill.  Kill ten of this (or one specific), find five of this, destroy six of that.  You get some cash, you might get some armor upgrade, you get experience, you move on.  After awhile, it becomes a grind.

I can safely say that Wrath of the Lich King has destroyed that conception.

For the first time ever I’m taking my time reading the quests.  And you should too!  They’re effing FUNNY.  And epic.  And exciting.  And different.

I can remember almost every quest I did in a specific area because the questing system is so different. Blizzard has created a somewhat linear experience in storytelling but still kept the world where you can do whatever you want, whenever you want.  It’s really quite impressive and it’s left my jaw dropped on more than one occasion. I just hit 74 on my Death Knight this morning, and I’d like to share some of the great changes in questing and one of my favorite moments (that I experienced only yesterday).  I warn you though, there be spoilers…
