I logged onto Maidofiron, eager to get levelling. First thing I did was rescue survivors of the devastation at Auberdine. While I was doing that, I also destroyed several Vile Spray. The noises those things make creeped me out a lot.
I was surprised to see that the Buzzboxes were actually analysing the items you brought, instead of turning them into booze. Looks like Wizbang Cranktoggle finally decided to use his scientific mind to help the animals of Darkshore, rather than using it to find new ways of getting himself tanked up.
While killing Thistle Bears for their guts, I managed to pull three of them at once. I promptly ran out of mana. Just as I was thinking ‘oh no, I’m dead’, one of the bears died and I hit Level 13 – which refilled my health and mana. Thank goodness for that then! I killed the other two bears and went on my way.
I fell into the Maw of the Void and got sucked into a cavern underneath it. Let me tell you now that Telarius Voidstrider is tougher than he looks. Especially when he keeps using Spellbreak to lower the damage my spells do to him. If it wasn’t for Shadowmeld, I would have died on my first attempt. I barely managed to kill him on the second. At least he dropped a quest starter.
One other thing I learned was not to kill Corrupted Duskrats. The AOE that spills out from their corpse hit me hard. Again, I nearly died.
I hit Level 14 after handing in all the quests I had. I then learnt Power Word: Fortitude from the trainer. This will come in very handy indeed.
And that was that. I then had an overwhelming desire to play Half-Life 2: Episode Two. So I did. Dog vs Strider is the best thing ever.
Until the next time, folks!
