S1:7 Report – The Series

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.

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….

  1. Ha! I loved this quest line. Was a lot of fun. Poor Gizmo and Socks… I like these kind of quirky quests that remove you from the “go here, collect that, and come back to me” I know it’s basically the same thing, but it just feels different, playing as an NPC and seeing what THEY did to get to where they are currently.

    Nice post! Really enjoyed it.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I probably did the Horde side 10 times all up (including the beta attempts). Now I know why that questing trinket has a raccoon pet called Socks.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Whew, finally, thought you had banned me, lol! Must be the internet monkeys playing up. I feel bad my Warlock hasn’t done the Horde version yet. Cat is just hogging all the play time, if she doesn’t watch out the Warlock is going to get her back.

  3. I ended up naming one of my bandicoons Socks as a tribute to his bravery. :D

  4. This is really cool. I’ve only done the Horde side, where you play as the Orc going to the hut. It’s fun to see it from the Alliance perspective :)

  5. All-in-all. Cymre just wanted to have that title the Jinyu has. “Bubblemaker Cymre”… yep, she totally wants that.

    • Tome – The Horde version is really funny, you really need to do it sometime :)

      Cy – I don’t blame you, I think I did too.

      Josh – Thx! Yeah it’s nice to see how different it is for both sides.

      Cool – LMAO. That is true. :P
