Gnomesblight hits 70

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

After reaching 68th level and finally mining enough adamantite to raise my death knight's blacksmithing skill up to 350 I take Gnomesblight to Howling Fjord to train as a grand master blacksmith and to start adventuring in Northrend. The quests given in Valgarde for Wyrmskull Village are fairly straightforward, including the follow-up quests that take […]

Sapphire Enters the Outlands

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

After hearing Knifey talk of his first step through the Dark Portal to visit the Outlands, with its strange new creatures and otherworldly landscapes, I have been keen to see the new world for myself. Having explored most of Azeroth and defeated many of its deadliest denizens I feel prepared to face a greater challenge. […]

Sapphire Becomes Exalted With Darnassus

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Although there is something regal about riding atop an elephant, it didn't appeal to me, particularly when compared to a ram or big cat. With my friend Knifey getting himself a pony and a ram, I decided to go for the big cat, which meant raising my reputation with Darnassus until I was exalted. This […]

Knifey's Midsummer Madness

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Midsummer celebrations comes to Azeroth, and Knifey finds bonfires and fire jugglers everywhere he goes. Interested in why people are throwing fire everywhere I ask the fire juggler in Ironforge what is going on, and he offers to give me some flowers if I manage to throw some of my own fire around. I light […]

The Saddle Would Melt

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

Someone found Slain by Elf after searching for 'gelatinous cube mount', and finding the party's adventure with a Corner of DQQM. But wait, a gelatinous cube mount? Apart from the obvious issues this raises, wouldn't it be quicker to walk?

Knifey's Ram Ready

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

Knifey has been trying to get exalted with Ironforge so he can get a swift riding ram. This is to replace his horse, for which he had to get exalted with Stormwind, because the swift horses aren't as appealing. All this so I don't have to ride a mechanostrider. I had run through all the […]

Knifey Can Haz Pony

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

After becoming Exalted with Stormwind I had to find a way to get another level and a half before I could ride around on a pony. A quick trip to Desolace to go down the scarlet path led me and my friends to the Scarlet Monastery in Tirisfal Glades. A quest to stab people to […]

The Continuing Chronicles of Knifey

Monday, January 7th, 2008

I want a pony! Actually, I was hoping to get a ram as a riding mount for my gnome self. Normally gnomes get a Mechanostrider, and there's nothing wrong with that, but with the reputation system overhauled it is now far easier to gain exalted reputation level with a faction to let you ride a […]
