Hopling

After reading Erinys‘ post about the hopling pet, I knew I would be be able to do this soon as the natural progression for Chen’s storyline led us into the dungeon of Stormstout Brewery. The best part is, you can do the achievement on either difficulty so I was eager to get another pet for my ever-expanding collection. Auntie Stormstout turns into a vendor once you accept her quest.

Highlights of the Jade Forest

Yesterday Cool and I finished all the questlines in the Jade Forest earning us the Upjade Compete achievement.

Spring Cleaning

With less than a day to go before the expansion goes live, it’s time to do some spring cleaning. The beta has been purged from my system after five months of testing, blogging and research. Tonight I spent quite a while going through my bank, bags and Guild bank to see how much space I could gain once the levelling starts. The good news is, I gained quite a bit from items I wouldn’t miss too terribly. There are so many...
