Two Hot Spots!

So much has happened since my last post.  I'm almost 48!  Won't be long now until I get my wings and hit the Outlands!  Right now, I'm looking forward to 48, when I can get Hibernate, which will allow me to put beasts and dragonkin peacefully to sleep for 30 seconds... That will be a very helpful skill!!

Shortly after my last post, I decided to head to 1000 needles, just to swim around and see what was there.  Imagine my glee when I found out the place was just brimming with Tin, Silver, Mithril, and Gold!  Not to mention Stranglekelp!  And the best part?  Almost NOTHING that would attack me!  I happily (and peacefully) swam about, mining and picking to my little heart's content.  It was wonderful!!  And things just grew back so fast!  At one time, I had 3 ore nodes, all within sight of each other.  It was soooo fun!!

It was so easy, being a druid.  Not only did I have the talent to make me swim faster, but I also had a glyph to speed me along too.  I highly recommend it to those miners and pickers out there!

When I was no longer getting much experience from 1000 needles, I headed out to various places to see if I could find someone who needed my help.  I explored Dustwallow Marsh, the Plaguelands, and several other places without much luck.  I just seemed like nobody wanted my help!  That's when I found the lake in Feralas.....  and my 2nd hot spot!  Jademir Lake, in NW Feralas!  The lake makes a big circle, and all along the edges grow Blindweed.  I picked myself silly!!  (Still do sometimes).  The experience just rolled in.  There are only a few dragonkin, easily avoided along the banks of the lake.  By the time I had made 1 circuit, everything had regrown!  So around and around I went, gathering the blindweed and the experience!

For those who are interested, here are a few quests I was able to do.  I will try to remember to write them down as I do them from now on.

Felwood -
Crying Violet
Purity from Corruption
Dousing the Flames of Protection (whew!  this was hard, and a lot of sneaking!)

Tanaris -

Badlands -
Down to the Scar
Survival of the Fattest

Well, that's all for now!  Peace and love to all...

Woo hoo!! I'm 34!

So I turned 34 by opening a chest... who knew you got experience from opening a chest?  I sure didn't!  I was just exploring a cave full of miners (who were green by the way) when I saw a chest.  I opened it, and to my surprise, I turned 34 when I did!  I also found a nice blue necklace, which was a bonus.

Other than helping with some cooking and fishing in Org, I've mostly been exploring and helping people in Desolace, Southern Barrens, and Stranglethorn Vale, and of course picking herbs and mining ore! 

So far I can't believe how easy it has been to get to this level.  Honestly, anyone could do it.  Though I will say that without being able to sneak my way around places, it might be a lot harder.  Trying to decide what armor to wear, and what items might help me, has been one of the hardest parts actually.  I think I've settled on stam and agility items (to boost defense) as being the most important to me.  While I am a druid, I really don't use much mana, other than healing once in awhile.  Anyone have any ideas on some good trinkets, potions, enchants, etc, that would be helpful?  I have a few run speed potions, but now that I have dash I don't really need them too much.  Hibernate will be a nice spell once I get it...

That's about it for now! I'm looking forward to a faster mount at 40!
