I see dead Draenei

In Terokkar Forest, where the entrance to the instance Auchenai Crypts is located, you can find a little boy called Ha’lei. He’s the quest giver of a chain called I See Dead Draenei which is obviously based on the movie “The Sixth Sense” :-). Even the boy’s name gives you already a clue to this fact. The boy actor from the movie is called Haley Joel Osment… now pronounce the name Ha’lei again :P. This is another great feature of WoW: the quests never get boring and sometimes you even have something really funny/cool things to do.

Instance: Underbog

Just like Slave Pens the level 63-65 instance Underbog heavily reminds me about Blackfathom Deeps. Underbog is right next to Slave Pens in the Steamvaults, so that might be the reason for the resemblance ;-). This time we had a level 70 Night Elf warrior with us who just couldn’t seem to live with the fact that I stole his agro all the time… even though I was the group’s tank :P. He kept attacking the mobs before me or just attacked the ones I wasn’t tanking at the moment. Well, I guess this is something like: “my penis is bigger than yours” or something… I don’t know :D. Anyway, I still loved it and wanna thank all (except this weird little warrior) for this fantastic run again!

Another World going mobile!

Hi guys!

Just wanted to let you know that – from now on – you can also enjoy my blog on the go :-)! I just discovered a tool which lets you generate a WAP copy of your existing Internet blog for free. It’s still heavily beta but it works fine on my mobile phone (Sony Ericsson W890i). Unfortunately you can’t post any comments there but you can watch all pictures and even the videos, for YouTube is also available for mobile devices. Another disadvantage is the fact that the WAP blog only shows the last 10 posts… but I don’t wanna complain if I get something for free right ;-). Supposedly the WAP blog will update more or less immediately after this one. Well, with this post I’m gonna find out soon enough, won’t I :-)? The link to my WAP blog of Another World is:

I also included the link on the right side of this blog under Blogroll. So let’s see you guys on the go too from now on ;-).

P.S. here’s a link to the tool where you can convert your Internet blog to a mobile one by the way 🙂

Zangarmarsh

The second zone in the Outland is called Zangarmarsh and has the level 60-64. Perhaps it’s just me but it really reminds me of Star Wars’ Dagobah… just without Yoda ;-). Also there are some mobs walking around which have a pretty close resemblance to those Walkers in Half Life 2. You can see them in the video at about 1:20. I liked the zone but was more anxious to finally get to the zones afterwards, Terokkar Forest and Nagrand.

Instance: Slave Pens

I know it’s been a while but don’t forget: it’s summer time :-)! Therefore I won’t be playing WoW that much anymore and even worse: I won’t have that much time to update my blog anymore ;-). But be rest assured, I’m still alive and I still love my tank Hekthor :P.

This time I wanna show you the level 62-64 instance Slave Pens in Zangarmarsh in the Outland. I really love this instance because of it’s similarity to Blackfathom Deeps. I like it if things look a bit “organic” and alive… if you know what I mean :-). Unfortunately my group could have been better for this run. We had a level 70 guy with us who constantly tried to steal the show and who didn’t quite stick to the “rules of engagement” ;-). For that reason the whole instance got a bit hectic sometimes and I really had to fight to keep the aggression on my side (as seen at Omen… I’m always the red bar). At the last boss (Quagmirran) the level 70 dude kept giving me strange suggestions/orders on how to tank him best. Well, it was my first time in this instance so I naturally listened to him. The result can be seen in the video :-). I moved him back and forth all the time while chatting with this guy to finally give me clear directions :-). What also really pissed me off was the fact that I’ve been in this instance for AT LEAST 15 times without getting the drop Bogstrok Scale Cloak from the second boss (Rokmar the Crackler). It’s such a great cloak for a tank and at the very first run a druid in my group got it instead. From there on I never had the drop again :-(.
