Cheers for Bungholio!

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.

Riding to adventure... or away from danger... in Shadowmoon Valley

Riding to adventure... or away from danger... in Shadowmoon Valley

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.

And, since we were right there next to Wildhammer Stronghold, Bung was able to train for and purchase his flying mount. Just the base model, not the epic, but he is now able fly!

Vik, Ula, and Earl are not far behind though. We should soon all be airborne.

    Hey guys,

    Grats on the levelling. I’ve been reading the blog for a while now and have really enjoyed it. It’s fun to see some people are still left that play to have fun and aren’t just focues on getting to 70 as fast as possible and gearing up in raids.

    I recently quit playing, but when I did I ran the Adventures in Azeroth blog (Amanna – Feral Druid), and found you somewhere along the line.

    Anyway – I just wanted to send my regards and congratulate you not only on your final dings (for a while), but also your rational, “fun first” approach to the game. It’s refreshing.

    Good luck.

    The freedom of the skies! Having a flying mount opens the game up a lot more than you might think. I would recommend everyone get one as soon as they can.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
