With little to do these days other than perhaps a dungeon or two and the round of dailies, Alas has been working on another favorite pastime: Achievement Whoring. Despite having had the Loremaster title since fairly early on in the Wrath expansion, I’ve been poking through all the new “old” content, redoing all the zones and scooping up more useless achievement points.
It’s been a fun exercise, seeing all the new quest lines or seeing old ones redone. It also definitely helps bring home how much work Blizzard really did put into this expansion, straightening things out from top to bottom.
Here are some favorites of mine that I have encountered along the way so far:
When I ran across this fellow in Ashenvale, I was immediately transfixed. I wondered, if he would speak to me, would he try to sell me fashionable tailored items? Or would it all be a load of BS?
This next series of shots had me immediately on Google chat to Zel. THERE IS A BEE PIT IN THE GAME! I announced. Sort of.
Between that quest and using rainbows to scare away imps, I got a few laughs out of Felwood.
I also got a laugh out of Sanath Lim-yo. His text reminded me irresistibly of Tam’s prettiest elf. Perhaps they are cousins?
At first, I was quite offended. But then I realized he might have a point.
But I must admit that my favorite thing about this expansion so far has been an NPC out in Twilight Highlands, by name of Lieutenant Emry. He is a blunt and murderous man, our Lieutenant. There was something about that which greatly appealed to Alas.
Maybe it was the poetry of his words?
I fear Alas will spend many a day on that war-torn beach, hoping to catch the Lieutenant’s eye again.
What little corners of Azeroth have you delighted in lately?
