Master of Northrend

25Jun10

First of all, I sincerely apologise for not posting in over two months. I had a list of excuses ready, but in all honesty, I can’t be bothered to type them out now. I had finals at university (or exams, or tests, or whatever you want to call them) and for once, I felt obligated to turn off the computer and actually study. But fear not, I didn’t leave the intranetz completely. World of Warcraft was probably the only spare time activity I could actually practise the last few months. So I did play, but I simply didn’t have the time to blog about it. Anyways, now I’m back and I’m here to stay. It’s summer now for me, so I have a lot of more time on my hands and I will keep telling you all about my amazing adventures in the World of Warcraft. /excuses.

I had my warlock, Asarhia, play around in Northrend for a bit. I did about half of the zones already to get her to level 80, but I’m an achievement-junkie, so I desperately wanted the Loremaster of Northrend Achievement. Not all too surprisingly, thanks to my sudden love for random dungeons (which has, evidently, quite a lot to do with Emblems of Frost and Tier 10 PvP gear, which totally out-rules Tier 9) I got another achievement a lot faster and was actually pleasantly surprised when it popped on my screen.

I had most trouble with Ahn’kahet, believe it or not. No one was really up for doing all the bosses, and we all know that as long as you don’t down all the bosses, you don’t get the achievement. I was glad to find a group who did want to do all the bosses, but was puzzled when I didn’t only get Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom but also the Northrend Dungeonmaster Achievement.

Being a Dungeonmaster really inspired my warlock to become Loremaster too. We all know that quests in Northrend are by far the most enjoyable, and I had done most quests there already (plus, the tons of gold was a welcome change for once too), so yes…It happened a couple of nights later.

Obviously I was quite thrilled – Asarhia was happy with the change too, at last she wasn’t being used as a PvP only character anymore – and at least now she got to make the Deathchill Cloak, which is only available for tailors who are also Loremaster of Northrend. It’s not like the Cloak is anything special now – it’s only level 200 and only has half-decent stats – but I’m quite a perfectionist, as is the warlock, and it bothered both of us not to be able to make something, even if the item in itself was quite useless. By the way, tailoring is around 443 now, so I’m hoping to get to 450 soon. And then, Royal Moonshroud Bracers Pattern, you are mine.

But here we were, the warlock and I, enjoying our little victory of becoming Loremaster and Dungeonmaster, when we both suddenly realised there was one last title within our grasp, that we didn’t already possess. So Asarhia jumped on her flying mount, we explored the last pieces of Howling Fjord and Solazar Basin…And tada, I became the proud owner of another Achievement AND the Tabard of the Explorer.

To celebrate the festivities, and the fact that my precious warlock can now portray herself as a true Master of Northrend, I present to you my sweetest, darkest Asarhia, proudly wearing the Tabard of the Explorer.

So what’s up next? In my next posts over the next couple of days, I will most likely inform you of the adventures of my favourite Death Knight, Myrith, and how she easily levelled from 60-61 where I left her off before I went on my two months blogging hiatus, and how she is now rocking level 67, about how my dearest priest Ryvenscryr hardly got any action – but did get a couple of herilooms – and is still patiently waiting for me at level 18, about my newly found passion for enchantements and gems, and my uber-epic full PvP gear set obtained by my precious warlock. 30 000 stamina, anyone?:P
