Rediscovering Azeroth

I think one of the most awesome things about WoW is that you always find something new. I’ve got a bunch of toons, so I’ve seen the low level areas a zillion times over. I’ve recently started levelling a priest (which by the way, is my favorite so far out of every class that I’ve played) and spent a lot of time questing and grinding this weekend. I found some new places, some new stuff, and some interesting things along the way…


This room is deep in the catacombs in Raven Hill Cemetary in Duskwood. There also appears to be a creepy tunnel that links the entrance where you kill Raiders/Healers/Warders and the entrance where you kill Plague Spreaders. That owns, almost as much as this room. There’s nothing special in here, but it’s a beautiful room and it truly feels creepy when you’re in it.


This is dropped by a rare spawn in the catacombs named Lord Malathrom, who was a tough fight for my then 28 priest. By himself he’s not so bad but he spawns these crazy little adds that can eat up a caster if you’re not careful. However, I see any rare spawn and I’m gonna give it a go, and the felhunter that hung out with me for the next hour was totally worth the fight. You can heal him, so it was kind of like having my own little tank for awhile — even moreso in the sense that it was stuck on aggressive and attacked anything that moved. MINION SMASH!


I’ve always wanted to know what happens if Stitches actually made it to Darkshire, and apparently if you’re questing at 11AM on a Saturday morning you can find out. By the time he made it to town there was actually a little group of us carefully following him and asking people not to attack him so he could get there. Once he got to town it was out of our hands though, and some well-meaning citizens of Azeroth pretended they were uber and whiffed at Stitches while the Watch took him down.


I’m not sure what this is — it looks like the Highperch thingers or the wyverns that Horde fly around on… but there was no one on it. So I’m not sure if these just randomly fly around Thousand Needles or what, but trying to take a screenshot almost got me wtfpwnt by some grouchy named elite which is apparently for a quest I didn’t have, but he sure didn’t know that.


I must’ve been around the racetrack a million times and I’ve never seen this poor guy before. I like to call this one “it’s fine, lrn2fly”.

    What addon are you using that tells you AH/Vendor Buy/Sell rates?

    Auctioneer — it’s awesome for all kinds of stuff, mainly knowing what vendor trash to keep in your bag until you get back to town and what’s expendable (throw away that staff that vendors for 5s but keep the axe that vendors for 1.5g, amirite?), and of course knowing when to buy/sell on the AH and for how much. You have to scan regularly (once or twice a day, takes roughly 15 mins for me to scan everything) to build a good price history though.
