I'm talking about WoW again.
I now have two characters with Loremaster.

Wait, wait, it's not as insane as it sounds. (yes, it's still insane, just not 'as')

See, I got Loremaster on Aydena (an 'old skool' character, in that she was 60 before Burning Crusade came out, even if I was about a year late getting to this party) first and I had to fight for the last ~20 Kalimdor quests. I thought I would never do that again... but well, that's what most women say about child birth, so....


Anyway. Nadira is a Blood Elf paladin, which mean, perforce, she was created after Burning Crusade came out. She also didn't get leveled for a long time, as I had other things to do, like level Aydena.

Then Blizz changed some things about the way rep is earned and I was curious: Aydena's rep with the Horde was abysmal - she wasn't exalted with anyone. I wanted to know if the rep changes would have had an effect on that, so I started running little Nadira though ALL the noob quests. Then all the mid level quests and.. I think you get the point. In the end she was ~50 short for Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms and ~250 short for Loremaster of Kalimdor.


She was also exalted with the entire Horde before she hit 50. :P

A month or so ago I really noticed just how close Nadira was to Loremaster and it started niggling at me until I gave in and just gave it a try.


And, darn it if it wasn't easier! She's still got at least 10 more Kalimor quests I could finish up very easily. If I really looked, I am pretty sure I could find several (if not many) more.


Oddest thing - I remember very few instance-based quests counting toward Loremaster while workign on it for Aydena, but for Nadira quite a few did, including all the Maraudon quests. Makes me wonder if they didn't tweak things a bit after Aydena clawed her way to Loremaster.

But I think I am done with that particular compulsion...


until Cataclysm comes out. :P

Talk about late to the game...I'm sitting here finishing up the patches after having installed Lich King. Then I finally get to play it for the first time (after I put in my prepaid card code into the account).

My son got it for me for Mother's Day (yes, I raised good geek children, TYVM), and I figured it was probably time to get it up and running before Cataclysm come out. And now that school's out and faire's over for me, I will actually have gaming time available.

Be careful. It's addictive - especially if you have friends that play with you, and/or you join an active and friendly guild.

Very true about the group quests, which is why I didn't bother with them on Nadira until she was 80 and tanking-HoR-geared. Not that that's all that helpful if you actually want to do them at level.
