Rally the Valley
One of the greatest things about this expansion is the amount of choice given towards different activities. It hasn’t quite been a week since release and I find myself wanting to pursue so many things. Part of the problem right now is that a lot of quest rewards are fun little items which take up quite a bit of bag room but with all the cooking items, fish, enchanting mats, fragments, etc. I find myself starting to struggle with room again. I love being able to summon the Guild bank every hour though, it’s not quite that bad but it helps.
So today we managed to get the Guild to Rank 20. With the Renowned Guild Tabard being a pretty permanent fixture right now, the rep is coming in fast and furious which is great. At the moment, I’ve contributed 17,700,000 just on Cymre for this week alone. At this rate, we’ll be 25 in no time :)
One a more personal note, I reached a fantastic blog milestone earlier today – 100K views of all time. I was thinking that I might reach that number by the time my blogiversary rolled around but with the release of Mists it’s happened ahead of schedule. I’m still amazed by the amount of traffic over the last few days and especially the interaction of my readers and friends by way of comments so thanks :)
I was also excited to find and kill my first Champion on live granting the achievement – A Worthy Opponent. He didn’t drop his novelty item but is it me or do they seem easier to kill now? Unfortunately, I forgot to click off the Silverdragon pop-up before he died. What a great belly flop shot!
Later on, when I first found myself on the back of this eagle, I thought I was going on some sort of ride until Cool said I needed to kill it :P Careful though, as he tries to throw you off several times.
As part of Chen’s storyline, you meet Mugmud who helps you collect the ingredients for Chen’s beer.
Today we started with the Hidden Master chain. I had a great time doing this the first time around and was nice to see it hadn’t really changed much.
As we worked our way accross the zone, there was only one chain that wasn’t automatically picked up through some type of breadcrumb quest. As I mentioned pretty early in the beta, Nesingwary (and the trolls) always make some form of appearance so I didn’t mind doing his quest chain. In fact, it was the last criteria I needed for the zone achievement.
Err, what the heck is that!
When I first saw the foxicopter, I thought it was some weird gimmicky thing until I found out that it was based on something in real life. That is just so wrong…
