Saturday night and we were down a tank, so the four of us remaining took a trip to Shadowmoon Valley to work on a few group quests. Our group was:
69 Warlock – Bungholio
69 Mage – Ula
69 Paladin – Vikund
70 Priest – Skronk
With Vik back in protection spec and Skronk rolling holy again, we felt prepared.
I haven’t spent much time in Shadowmoon Valley. We bypassed it for the most part. But my minor past experience there was that it can be a tough zone.
And that impression was reinforced as we did a series of quests on the Path of Conquest.
The Path of Conquest is somewhere between a zone and an instance.
On the instance side of things, you have plenty of elites, annoying patrols, and a couple of bosses. But everything respawns like an outdoors zone.
Which meant lots of running around and surprises.
We nearly wiped on the elite, named patrol that moves along the path. Nearly, as in Vik did not have to run faster than the patrol, just faster than the mage and the warlock.
Oh, yeah, Vik was the tank. Sorry guys!
Still, we collected ourselves and with the usual knee-bent, running about, advancing behavior we were finally able to make our way to the two named elites at the end who were on our hit list.
Dispatching them and finishing the quest was enough to put Bung over the top and into level 70, making him the second member of the team to hit the level cap.
Vik, Ula, and Earl are not far behind though. We should soon all be airborne.
