It's Not Just Quest Text

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

'Hey, Sapphire, this guy is Gorefiend, isn't he?' 'Why do you think that?' 'Just a feeling. We gave him the items he asked for, and now he's wearing them.' 'Wow, I never noticed that. I've done the quest three times, I really should pay more attention.'

Separated at Birth?

Does someone have access to the barber shop before it is open? Even so, what's he doing with my face? And my ram? I need a lie down.

Sapphire's Choice

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Having made the journey to the Outlands it would be foolish not to risk travelling the road to Shattrath City, where I can set my hearthstone to take advantage of portals to every capital city in Azeroth, particularly when I have recently considered the utility of the decision to keep my home at the Exodar. […]

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. […]

Knifey in Shattrath

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Knifey has been hanging around with all the cool Netherwing Drake-riding kids in Shattrath City, having moved on from Azeroth through the Dark Portal. I've been using the Scryer's inn as a resting place for now, mostly because the jump from the Scryer tier down to the upper city whilst painful can be survived. It's […]

Knifey's Outlandish Adventure

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Knifey's been taking it easy recently. The differing time-zones make teaming up with the rest of my party difficult and, after learning the lesson the hard way before, I don't want to get ahead of my friends so that we can't team up. There is also a certain ennui settling over me when playing solo, […]

The Great Egg Hunt

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

The netherwing drake mounts became available some time back in the Outlands, and are large, cool-looking dragons that you can fly around on. To get one of them you need to prove your dedication to freeing their race from the Dragonmaw Orcs, and you can achieve this through performing various tasks that promote the eventual […]

On Aggro Stealing

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

The Consortium was asking for volunteers to kill some Blood Elves, so my warrior, Tiger, was rounded up with some characters from a friendly guild and we headed off to the Botanica. When we got there, one character piped up, 'Tiger, you've got your hands full tonight, as you have three aggro stealers with you!' […]

Gorefiend's Armour: Helping to Defeat Vhel'kur

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Running around with a mage friend in Shadowmoon Valley, trying to avoid the nasty bidepal dragonlike monsters in the Temple of Ata'Mal, I get a call asking for help to kill a big undead dragon flying around the Netherwing Ledge in an effort to retrive Gorefiend's armour. I mention that I am already in a […]

Orc or Death?

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

The Netherwing drakes are being abused by the Dragonmaw orcs. As a brave adventurer, you are tasked with infiltrating the Dragonmaw orcs and subverting their cause from the inside. Superficially, it looks like you are assisting the orcs, but you are continually working to disrupt operations and work against them. To help with this task, […]
