During the beta, I wrote about the Horde quest Scouting Report: Like Jinyu in a Barrel since this was one of two quests which were very buggy at the time. A few days ago, Cool and I managed to quest through the Alliance equivalent which had some similarities in progression, even though the characters and storylines were suitably different.

Gizmo

I will say that on Alliance side, Sully was just as amusing with his preoccupation with raccoons as opposed to Riko  who preferred the company of a particular undead female.

Here are some of the highlights from the quests leading up to the series.

Bubblemaker Ashji

Bubblicious indeed!

OK well, he’s not a quest but what can I say? I always thought this guy was a nice addition… :P

Jinyu-levelling

Not to mention the power-levelling of your companions

If only we could level as quickly – these guys literally levelled with every group of mobs we killed.

Jinyu Bubbles

Bubble Trouble

Then to top it all off there was this – WTB bubble damage/healing spells. Can you imagine penance shooting out bubbles? Maybe as a way to make up for the bubble maker I wanted as a child.

Before long, we heard about the investigation which led to the Lair of the Jade Witch.

Jade-Witch-Orc

Jade-Witch

R.I.P Gizmo and Socks.

Amber-racoon

Dwarf-three

All-in-all, it was quite a fun storyline but it did seem a bit easier than our version, including the sniper part for Take No Prisoners but I won’t say what they did to those Orcs….
