Shared Topic: The Best of Wrath

The shared topic on Blog Azeroth is our favorite _____ in Wrath.  I'm going to take a cue from my guild mate and expand it just a bit.


I really do love my armor set, I think its amazingly cool and very hunterish.

There's just one small problem with it. The helm is a bird house with a horn.  Why...just why.

But lets be honest, hunters don't play for the armor.   We play for the weapon.  I know everyone has it by now but I love my bow.  Even down to the tooltip it oozes cool.

How can you not want to play the coolest class in the game after this?


Now that San has his I can safely post my favorite.  I've wanted a black drake from the moment I first saw one.  Honestly when the xpac started I never expected to be in a position to get it.  It did come with some guilt, I didn't realize at the time that some were going for the 100 mount achievement and that I should probably not have rolled on Bob.  But destiny will not be denied and now we live happily ever after.


Yes yes Gundrak is an odd choice.  But seriously, Ice Trolls with god complexes what's better than that.  Its a fast and flowing instance with in reach achievements.   The fights require situational awareness and really for the first time in Northrend it requires some skill with your class.


I need to say this and be highly unpopular.  I really hate Ulduar, the raid and both five man instances.  Don't get me wrong its all visually stunning and the lore is amazing.  But the fights are so bloody hunter crappy I can hardly stand it.  I just never found it to be any fun. 

Naxxramas.  The big daddy of "vanilla wow", the last of the 40 man raids.  I didn't get far into it then and it was a disappointment.  I was so pleased to see it resurected in WOTLK where it fit in perfectly.    Its a nostalgia pick but hey I'm female and can pick stuff just because if I want.


Oh I so love Grizzly Hills.

Don't get me wrong after about 10 minutes I turn the music off but the rest of it just rocks.  The return of Harrison Jones, the Shade of Arugal, the bear god Ursoc and the poor, imprisoned troll Drakuru.

Its such a pretty zone, a forest in the winter.  Big full pine trees, clean white snow, crisp cold waterfalls.  Its like a vacation in Northrend. 

Quest Chain:

Guru of Drakuru

I know its technically two chains but you just can't not do both.

Admit it, after you finish the Grizzly Hills portion you said "hey dude WTF?!?"  It was so fulfilling to exact revenge in the second set of quests.  Gotta love it.

This has been a really great expansion, its lived up to the hype.  I could go on and on but I have a date with the PTR and some Cataclysm testing!


  1. I actually liked Gundrak too, even if I keep mixing it up with Drak'tharon a lot, haha!!
    (which one was it again with the mysterious, long red tail underneath its ruins, hmmm...I still need to know where that leads!) ;)

    Good luck with the blog by the way and hello from a blogging neighbour! =)

  2. It is hard to tell all those ice trolls apart :)
