During the beta, I wrote about the Horde quest Scouting Report: Like Jinyu in a Barrel since this was one of two quests that were very buggy at the time. A few days ago, Cool and I managed to quest through the Alliance equivalent which had some similarities in progression, even though the characters and storylines were suitably different.


For Alliance, Sully was just as amusing with his preoccupation with raccoons as opposed to Riko who preferred the company of a particular undead female.

Here are some of the highlights from the quests leading up to the series.

Bubblemaker Ashji

Bubblicious indeed!

OK well, he’s not a quest but what can I say? I always thought this guy was a nice addition. :P


Not to mention the power-levelling of your companions

If only we could level as quickly – these guys literally levelled with every group of mobs we killed.

Jinyu Bubbles

Bubble Trouble

Then to top it all off, there was this. WTB bubble damage/healing spells. Imagine penance shooting out bubbles!? Maybe as a way to make up for the bubble maker I wanted as a child.

Before long, we heard about the investigation leading to the Lair of the Jade Witch.

R.I.P. Gizmo and Socks.

All-in-all, it was a pretty fun storyline but it did seem a bit easier than ours, including the sniper part for Take No Prisoners but I won’t say what they did to those Orcs.
