That would be Oddfodder flying off one of the hills on his fancy new Goblin Trike. Got Pésus to 20 this morning so that I could stroke that off my small to do list. This morning yet I’ll also likely have my pet bank toon set up. Depends if I work on that…or house cleaning. I do have the transmog contest ready to post so it isn’t like I’ve been idle thus far. Though, I will admit Carrera hasn’t had her experience bar move in the slightest. I was too busy getting Horrux to 60 because I decided I wanted to take him into the Laid Back Raid later tonight.
Speaking of which, just a friendly little reminder for those attending that it is Gaudy Sweater Night in the Molten Core. Nothing says fun like an ugly sweater and Horrux’s Skullflame Shield as far as I”m concerned. Also note that we’ll be starting a little early. Further to that, we can do an attunement run around 7pm EST for those who might need it.
Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to do a pass through Storm Peaks again. I was there yesterday, found a skunk to fight, and proceeded to get my arse handed to me. Two skunks in the battle resulted in way too much healing for the pet configuration I had. As such, I still need a capture from there for my Northrend Tamer.
Take THAT Ya Cheese Eatin’ Surrender Monkey!
Now that I’m grinding reputation for the Sons of Hodir, I am not a happy person. It’s tedious, unless I want to pony up and buy Relics, by which I could vastly speed the process up. I like my gold, so that’s not going to work.
However, the journey to this point was amazing. With Siori, I went from Dragonblight into instances and Icecrown for my last couple levels. So, I didn’t even touch Storm Peaks until well after I hit 80. Given the importance of the Hodir Shoulder Enchantments, I know how daft that sounds. But, enter I did and in no time at all I was running around for Thorim.
If you want the full details of Thorim and Loken, head here. For the short version, there’s a reason their names are based on Thor and Loki. Sadly, it took me some time to pick up on that. But, the storyline that takes you through Brunnhildar Village and Thunderfall and back again, was amazing. The Drakkensryd is now easily my favourite quest in the game (and I wish I had been smart enough to take a screenshot). You can just hear the Indiana Jones theme playing while you leap from one to the other. Very action packed and I found myself disappointed the quest is not a daily.
If you plan to raid, getting Exhalted with Sons of Hodir is a must. But, if casual gaming is your thing, you owe it to yourself to do this chain right up to going into Halls Of Lightning and knocking Loken’s teeth in. So make sure you snag this quest when you hit Storm Peaks. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
