Completed the Redridge elite quests with a bunch of lads. Great fun pushing through the overrun keep to take down Gathlllllzogggger. Met some cool people...friends list is getting full.

Did some questing with doc in Redridge after then headed to SW and respecced frost @ lvl25 to take advantage of the Azure set. Made a sweet blue shirt to complete the "blue" look.

Having gotten to lvl26 I decided it was time to venture deep into the Stockades to help Warden Thelwater clear out the uprising rabble. I thought I had every quest...alas I'd forgotten about Kam Deepfury from the wetlands.

Our tank was both cocksure and a cock. It wouldn't be WoW if there weren't assholes to encounter.

A strong group of adventurers, unfortunately with 3 night elves...snobby, tall bastards.

The scene: Redridge Mountains
The challenge: Escort Corporal Keeshan back to safety

This quest sucked on retail due to the abundance of mobs with range, snares and fast respawns. Not to mention Keeshan walks at a snails pace and has maybe 10 health due to his injuries. Failure is likely. On a private server there is also the issue with pathing and escorts; the escort will think any mob aggro'd within 100 yards is aggro'd by you or one of your party members and rush off to help. That means if there is anyone else in the area grinding away you're pretty much fucked. With a group of 5, we decided we could try, what ensued was instance level fun and difficulty.

It begins...

What an adventure, good stuff!

Playing Vanilla WoW seems like so many other games that are fucking horrible unless you can make your own fun out of shortfalls, people being cunts, or getting stomped. Dota2 and MTG card game comes to mind.

Haha well I woudnt say fucking horrible... I love the world. I genuinely enjoy that Warden Thelwater is a distrusting cunt before you help him clear the stockades... rinse/repeat for every quest.

The mechanics themselves are old but not without their own charm.
