So I said that at one point (this being that point) I will be making a post where I will be sharing my thoughts on Nobbel87’s videos on the lore of draenor which are quite cool and pretty well made, however after carefully reconsidering this I actually decided to cut down most of them (since it’s all basically just questing and most of you have finished all of them already even if some of them do contain pretty awesome explanations as to why are things the way that they are) and go for just a handful of more recent videos and talk a little about those. But first, since not long ago we saw the update to patch 6.1 (and all it’s brave new content) I recon that sharing a few thoughts on that update would also be welcome. Now I know I already did this in the previous post and I can assure you that at some point I will be doing it again (if not for 6.1 then for 6.2 and so on), but here’s something a little different. You might remember the video that Blizzard put out during the WoD launch, right? Well here’s it’s version for patch 6.1 complete with comments and updates on everything you need to know. On the downside I for one really enjoyed the cinematic trailers for patches (you know the way they had them back when WoW was still young and flawed), but I guess that this will have to do until we see that (if we even see it). So without further a do here it is:
Patch 6.1 Survival Guide (by Blizz)
Alrighty then so the video screenshot is rather suggestive but just in case you have no idea what on earth is going on (say you did not do the legendary just yet and you have no idea who Garona is) the next video will clear everything up just a bit. Now there’s a quest chain, much like the one from MoP where Wrathion gave you the cloak, but here it would seem that instead of a cloak you get a ring that will become legendary in the end (because just like with the ring of the Kirin Tor this too gets upgraded as you progress). The quest features Archmage Khadgar and is basically the same regadless of what side you choose to do it with (except for a few different npcs here and there, but anyways it makes little difference). The current quest chain ends in Blackrock Foundry and with us captruing Garona and enjoying a little R&R up until this new patch came out when the quest will continue (still I did not manage to do it just yet so good for you if you did). Now the spoiler alert is that we manage to save Miss (or Mrs?) Halforcen and she becomes our follower – Our first legendary follower that is. Anyways, in case you didn’t do the quest at all and need a little heads up on it here’s Nobbel’s take on it:
Legendary Questline Chapters 1 & 2 (WoD)
Now you know how the story almost ended in the previous patch and this new patch basically takes it up from where it was left (a couple quests further from where Nobbel got) and takes everything one step further. It kind of sucks if you think it, but after all that’s just how the game is supposed to be … You play through all the patches and finally when it is done you get a legendary which you enjoy for a month of two before it is outdated as soon as the new updates are released. But let us not be pesimitic about this now and try to enjoy a little what we have right now and think of it as a journey and not a destination (I’m giving credit to Aerosmith on this one, I don’t about you), you know, stuff like the new legendary follower. Seriously that is kinda of a badass lady and having her in your team is a pretty huge boon if you ask me (or the guys who actually thought about adding her in there). And since we are still talking followers and team and boons and stuff there’s another recent lore video which I found quite entertaining and which might also prove useful to most of you (since I am sure that few of you chumps actually managed to finish this up in case you are a rather casual like myself). That is the garrison quest chain that’s available once you hit level 100 and you sort of upgraded your base just a little.
Garrison Campaign (Alliance and Horde) – WoD Lore
And I assume that with this our small take on whatever there was still to wrap up with patch 6.0.3 is done and we should all be able to move on to the 6.1 content and enjoy all the new stuff it has to offer. I am just as curious as everyone else on how will things go down, but clearly so far the storytelling has been awesome and we expect nothing less of the future campaigns and quests. I do hope you’ve enjoyed this small rewind of the most imortant contet so far in WoW and in case you liked the videos feel free to check out Nobbel87’s channel for the complete list of lore videos and plenty of other cool stuff spoken with that heavy irish accent (or is it scottish or welsh … I honestly can’t tell). Before I finish this I only wanted to mention the fact that the guides are also getting updated to patch 6.1 so feel free to check in with them and update your addons and in-game guides before logging back into the game once you’ve applied the new patch. Also just a small heads up for those gold diggers and gold beggars out there, the champs from Zygor finally finished their work on the brand new “Gold and Auctions” Addon and are rather proud of it (or so they would seem from the newsletter they sent out to all the partners). Anyways I will be talking more on it once the launch will be underway since they will begin the whole process tomorrow and only launch the addon next week on the 5th of March. Anyways, I’ll scoop it out and let you know if it is any good, as good as they say or just simly epic and I’ll make sure to have a post ready sometime next week where I share all the stuff I know about. Now I am finally done for with this too, thanks again for stoping by and please do visit again when you have the time.
