Searing Gorge: Go, you good thing!

On my way to level 60, I skipped a couple of areas. One of these areas was Searing Gorge.

Well, now I'm 650 beads away from exalted with the Timbermaw, and I get a little bored with it. So last night I ventured down to the Searing Gorge to check things out.

And I must say, nice easy gold to be had for a level 60. Not as nice as if I had actually done Searing Gorge in the first place, and then had a whole bunch of WPL and EPL quests to do after 60, but good enough, since grind 20 level 49 mobs is a very easy feat.

I also finally got my Searing Gorge key, and helped Juggernut (guildy) get his.

Highlight of the night was doing the escort chain and culminating in Jugger and I pulling down the Obsidian Golem and that evil dwarf, thingybo the Dark/Black/Beige/White/Off White or the Bone, dear. (geh, I do go off track sometimes).

Jugger is an up and coming dwarven warrior on his way to 60. We did think that we'd just be up against the golem, but then the dwarf appeared, and we got into a bit of trouble. We managed to pull down the dwarf, but with no healer, the golem pounded us into the surrounding dark iron.

When I rezzed, the golem was still hanging around, so we had another crack. I went tank and lasted quite a while before asking for a bit of bandaging from Jugger, who was DPSing like a mad DPSing thing. GO TEAM! The bandaging was enough to pull that sucker down, quest completed!

All and all, quite a good night, with plenty more quests in that area to go. I earned 10g cash from the Winterfall furbies earlier in the night, and another 15g from my efforts in Searing Gorge.

I was also feeling especially generous.

  • Helped a couple of guildies with their quests (tit for tat on that, they helped me too)
  • Tried to help someone who had lost their Combat Log window. Somehow, they couldnt get/see the Combat Log tab, and in the end had to suggest find the UI reset button in the options menu.
  • Escorted someone to the Innkeeper in Darn. Usually, you might ignore, give coordinates, or use the mini map, but I thought a person escort would be best.
  • Gave Zend, a level 10 hunter a good start in the way of 5g. Zend did ask if I would help complete some quests, but I was wrapping up for the night. Besides he should have someone of similar level to help to maximize the experience earned from the mobs he'd have to bring down. So then he ask for a little cash for a noob. Well, anyone asking for cash for a noob (his words), probably isnt that much of a newbie. I admired his gall and pointed out that the epic mount I was sitting on cost 800g and a flying mount wouldnt be any cheaper, and would have to save the pennies. "oh". Then about a minute later, I remember the kindness the senior guildies had shown me, with getting me started so I tracked him down and gave him 5g. He couldnt believe his luck and said thanks. Sometimes, it feels good to give.

In other news, Hinny is becoming known as the Mistress of the Quick. She logs, she checks the mail, she checks the AH, she checks her assets and she's outa there. If you do see Hinny, give her a wave, quickly. Bam, gone!
