Msaker having fun in Arcatraz.


Exilarch not quite having fun yet in the Wetlands. Note bubble provided by lovely wife. “Run, Forrest, run.”

(And, yes, Arugal is wondering where *all* his clothes went.)

Warriors, the other red meat.

All is well.

Patch 2.2

Msaker’s got his shoulders back.

I look … proper.

Just for one day


I will be king
And you
You will be queen
Though nothing will
Drive them away
We can beat them
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
Just for one day


I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim
Though nothing
Will keep us together
We can beat them
For ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes
Just for one day

- Bowie, Heroes

Thanks to Ayriana, Rhygol, Kreton, and Shadwell for helping the Princess and me getting to Ogrila.

Two on the Path of conquest.

Msaker and Droonda. Tonight we did The Path of Conquest quest chain. Just the two of us. Flying mount was pretty much required for us to do it alone. Nachmahd gave us a hand on the very last part, healing while we killed our last two Crazed Colossi. There was a nice +Defense and +Shield Block ring for Msaker, and Droonda took the +Attack Power, of course.

Two worlds collide. Ours vs. Theirs. We win.

Who’s crazy now?
Two too pretty.

How to keep two Orcs busy. And a Druid.

Not really sure what the minimum level requirement for the new Midsummer Festival quests is. We did them with Msaker and Droonda, and I did it later with my Level 42 Druid, Greenclaw. The Orcs did the Wild Fires, and the Flickering Flames, in both the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, and the Druid just did the Wild Fires in the Eastern Kingdoms (for the Mantel of the Fire Festival shoulders). All of them did the basic “Recover a flame at each capital city” quest too.

Today we plan to take the Orcs to Stormwind City, Iron Forge, and Darnassus, and steal their fires. That’ll add the Crown of the Fire Festival to the set.

And in a few short moments, Greenclaw is going to take a stab at it as well, assaulting Orgrimmar, Thunderbluff, and the Undercity.


Why not?

“Too much trouble for no reward,” said someone. Hmm.

It’s pixels when it comes down to it. It’s all just pixels. All effort is simply towards higher numbers in the spreadsheets that are our characters to overcome lower limit thresholds the designers set before us and progress.

Or, it’s pimping your Orc with better gear, ala Champion’s Battlegear, so he looks badass when he’s hanging around Orgrimmar. And/or wearing spotlight shoulders and having people ask “Where did you get those?”

Otherwise, taking your high numbers to overcome lower numbers to acquire even higher numbers… boring.

Too, it was an evening’s journey across the lengths of the two Azerothian Continents, planning out a route so it doesn’t take bleeding forever.

Anyway, here’s a few screenshots.

I call this one “Wife Aggro.”

For a Level 42 Druid, completing this quest got me a few more flight points. I was not once in any serious danger. The Kalimdor reward are bracers with 3 charges on them to summon a guardian. Pfft.

This last I call “A man of letters.”

I enjoy the seasonal festivals. And we do them for the amusement factor.

Yes, the last screenshot has nothing to do with the Festival. But doesn’t this guy look relaxed? He’s only missing the cognac and a good cigar.

P.S. Stealing into Orgrimmar now. Leaving a line of elven skeletons behind me. Why don’t they move the cemetery closer??! Kek.

Update: Orgrimmar’s flame Stolen.

P.P.S. Stealing into Thunder Bluff was a piece of cake. Cow pie. Died twice and then I was home free.

Update 2: Thunder Bluff’s flame stolen.

P.P.P.S. Stealing into the Undercity wasn’t even necessary. They like the old throne room for such festivities. So do I.

Final Update: UC’s flame stolen.
P.P.P.P.S. I’VE BEEN ROBBED!!! NOOOOOO. There appears to be a minimum level for getting the quest after stealing the flames.

I cry “Foul!” There was no indicator that I was not high enough level. (Other than trying to take the quest from the items.) There should be an indicator or something.

Don’t know what it is. But it ain’t 42. Three more bank slots taken. Till next year then.


Heh. “Why?” “Why not?”

Two for the Outlands.

Congratulations to Droonda, level 70 Orc Shaman Princess.

Well, she came a long way. Always by my side. Through thick and thin. Out of Durotar, across Azeroth, into the Outlands, and then back in Time even.

So I collected a few snapshots of our journey together.

Could almost be today. Traveling through Mulgore.

Ah. The Shimmering Flats.

No more walking!

The merry band.

Letting her hair down. Orc style.

Getting ready.

In style.

Yowza. Almost there. 69 and ready to rock.

Unstoppable. (Yes, we were two Resto Shamans, one Enhancement Shaman (Droonda), and two Fury Warriors, Msaker tanking. We did it.)

No, really.

And here we are. Kind of full circle. Again on tawny Windriders. This time they’re our very own.

Msaker is a lucky Orc to have such a Princess by his side.

Grats, Droonda! You’ve come a long way, Baby!

Ding. 70. Flight.

Oh, yeah.

Broke, but elated.

Playing with Orphans, we find a bully. Visiting former times.

Had some fun last night running around with our Blood Elf orphans. Msaker scouted the way out, and Blackhoof and Droonda followed behind.

The Orphans last request found us traveling to the Caverns of Time. And there we, Blackhoof and Droonda, took a side trip. To the Hillsbrad of before the Scourge, but trouble is imminent.

What a blast. That was really cool.

“‘Blades of light!”? Punk.”

And Blackhoof and Droonda didn’t look too shabby. A mite pale and furless though.

Nobody in Southshore suspected a thing as we rode in our Frostwolf and Kodo. And the vendors there did business with us. If you like riding, you might have a look.

It’s not like a regular instance. Going to Old Hillsbrad you get to play a tourist in the area around Durnhold Keep, Tarren Mill (mind the guards, they were red elites, our level), and South Shore itself. Watch Sally Whitemane running around, with her champion. And the discussion that goes on in the Inn. Lots of familiar faces. … And that just makes the whole history that unfolded after that much more dramatic and sad. (Except for Herod. Apparently he was always a punk.)

Coming along.

The Orcs are doing fine in the Bone Wastes. With a little help from our friend, Nachmahd, the cow with wings.
