Drunken Haze

While battling the Ogres in Bloodmaul, they have an attack effect called ‘Drunken Haze’. While I had never seen the effect on any of my prior toons, I believe the recent ‘video option’ reset in the recent patch probably enabled the effect. When it happened, I was a little surprised.

An Honorable Kill

While doing some quests in the Hinterlands, Sormodann saw me at about 70% health, 2 levels below him, and fighting another mob and decided to attack. 45 levels and my first honorable kill on Cho’gall. Horde outnumbers Alliance 4:1 on this realm if not more, so, it is always interesting when the Alliance picks a […]

Explore Icecrown

While Jamespond was leveling, I was flying over to heal a guy that was doing the bone witch’s revenge quest chain which led to the ‘ring of blood’ quests for Icecrown. As I was on my way, I must have run over the last part of Icecrown that I hadn’t discovered and voila, Explore Icecrown.

1500 Quests Completed

Since the release of Wrath of the Lich King, Jamespond sat idle. Initially he was leveled to 71 and dropped off in Dragonblight, then, leveled to 73 and left in Conquest Hold as he healed Qwaitxfour when he did the pit quest. When I started leveling him again, he had full rest experience which lasted […]

5 Daily Quests Complete

While leveling Jamespond over the weekend, doing a quest that led into a daily that resulted in doing the same quest over again for experience seemed like a simple way to earn more experience and a little cash. It also resulted in getting an achievement for doing 5 Daily Quests.

The Snows of Northrend

After doing all of the Hemet Nessingwary quests in Northrend, Jamespond was granted this achievement.

The Empire of Zul’drak

Jamespond leveled in Zul’drak and finished 100 quests in Zul’drak to earn this achievement.

Of Blood and Anguish

Jamespond finished the Zul’drak ‘Ring of Blood’ quest and ended up with the [item]41822[/item]. As a balance spec druid, I ended up healing and only ran out of mana on one of the fights. No deaths, achievement earned, success.

Explore Zul’drak

While leveling Jamespond up to 80, again while doing the ‘taxi’ quest during the quest chain that has you doing favors, Zul’drak was completely discovered.

Leveling a Druid from 73 to 80 in one weekend

It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t fun. A Resto druid with nothing but the TBC end-game epics needed to get from 70 to 80. Without any feral gear, it was going to be tough. Stuck in Grizzly Hills with no other gear at mid-73 left a quandary. After 3.1, talent points were reset, so, what […]
