Remember Theramore

Over the weekend I wanted to go and see Theramore for the last time as it was probably going to be the last time that I saw the place – the way it is now. It brought back memories of when I levelled my Priest through the zone. I was antsy to  get there as I needed to go to the profession guy there. I think it was the tailor, or maybe enchanting. So I flew Cool over there pausing just outside the walls to take a few pics while I...

Scourge Invasion

The first Scourge Invasion appeared as a world event when players logged into Patch 1.11 during the opening of Naxxramas. Reintroduced in preparation for the Wrath of the Lich King and tuned for the new level cap of 70, it’s the only world event to ever be repeated. This is how Tanaris looks today – sun, sand and giant plants, among the other usual stuff. During the the second Scourge Invasion of 2008, the rares dropped...

Scepter of the Shifting Sands

The Scepter of the Shifting Sands was an item created from an extremely long quest chain used to open the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj.

In Patch 1.9 this epic chain was added but in Patch 4.0.3, it became unobtainable due to world changes and missing quests. The chain began in Cenarion Hold and...

Karazhan Opera

One of my favourite fights in Karazhan would have to be the Opera Event. Here you had a choice of three random stage productions. To start the event, all you had to do was talk to Barnes the Stage Manager (assuming you had first killed Moroes below), who would be waiting by the stage door. From there, he’d walk on stage and make an announcement, triggering one of three plays: The Big Bad Wolf – Starring the hungry Wolf...

Beasts of Karazhan

When we first started our first Horde Guild on Khadgar, Karazhan was the first raid we ventured into. Not much different from now, recruitment was slow but it did not deter us from trying. There were three random beasts who became available as optional bosses. I used to think of them as rare spawns because you had to force an appearance. However this isn’t really the case. I was always eager to encounter all three. The loot they...

The Maul

If you venture into Dire Maul, without the luxury of zoning in, it’s hard to miss the huge pit located outside the three instance wings in the middle of the Broken Commons. Before Cataclysm, entering the Maul would flag players for PVA (Player vs. All) which allowed them to attack and kill other players in the Maul, regardless of faction, much like the Gurubashi Arena in Stranglethorn Vale. The only difference would be if you...
