Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …

Angoleth has been 70 for a little bit now, wearing AH greens and random quest rewards, and slowly plodding along working on her leatherworking skill. Sadly, trying to get a bunch of instance runs together for your (undergeared) huntard alt when you have two other characters already keyed for Karazhan proved to be rather difficult. I snuck into Shadow Lab after a friend cleared the place out to get that fragment but hadn’t made any progress on the other two.

Yesterday, however, a friend was putting together a “Kara Badge PUG” (which wasn’t really a PUG, but certainly not a regular instance group) and since most people couldn’t come for an hour or so, he scrambled together a group and we blasted our way to the Steamvaults and Arcatraz key fragments. 30 odd minutes killing Dragons in the swamp later, and Angoleth became the proud owner of a Karazhan key…

Only to walk into her first Karazhan *run* about 10 minutes after that!

As I’ve mentioned in the Totally WTF posts, it’s often good to bring a loot-sponge with you when you go on a badge run, since with high level gear, Karazhan can be 9.5 manned and you’ll gear up your newer players pretty quickly that way. We had two – myself and a tree-druid (who also went with us to the Black Morass run for her key).karazhantower

While our druid definitely got the lions share of the loot (yay gearing up healers!), I got new gloves, bracers, and two pair of boots (one with more +hit, one with more AGI), almost enough rep to get to honored with the violet eye, and enough other gear to switch chestpieces to the ol’ Laughing Skull Battle Harness. I also ticked over enough honor to pick up the Gladiator’s shoulders. HUGE AGI upgrades (finally broke 700 AGI), great for little survival hunters like me, and a lot of other stats as well.

Meaning Angoleth is, essentially, a whole new hunter! Next up on the list is weaponry, for sure. Not that I don’t love my Core Hound Tooth, but seriously people…

*As most of my characters are An/Anna somethings, they are differentiated by class in the TRI chat channel, particularly if they are not Annorah. Annapriest, Annadin, Annafruif/Annaclaws, Annastab, etc. Yesterday “Annahunter” became “Annatard”, when they realized I’d been 70 for a few weeks but hadn’t managed to get keyed for Karazhan.

  1. gratz on the gearing up :) My hunter is still in her greens and quest rewards too. I just can’t bring myself to play her for more than a couple of dailies at the moment >_<

  2. Ha! I have a hunter that’s been 70 for about 9 months, and he still doesn’t have a Kara key! ;)
