This week, my characters already at level 90 ticked off quite a few of their objectives, so this weekend I took my Hunter, Ketura, out to join Nesingwary’s expedition to Pandaria.
I think the addition of a taxidermist to the Nesingwary entourage is hilariously wonderful! One of my great-grandfathers was a taxidermist, and my maternal grandparents’ house was decorated with a couple of his deer heads and a bobcat pelt wall hanging. As a child, I always loved going to the Monte L Bean Life Science Museum to see all the animals — and as an adult, I still love it.
Then Ketura went to Stoneplow and Paoquan Hollow.
I always feel so sorry for Lin Tenderpaw when I do this quest chain, as my character progresses right along while she is stuck endlessly pummeling her poor paws into paste against that rock while the Hidden Master disparages her ability.
After that, I went up to Kun-Lai Summit and finished everything but the Burlap Trail.
Ketura had a much easier time with the Darkspear Rebellion stuff than Keija the Warrior did because Kamalia could craft her a set of the Crafted Deadly Gladiator’s gear right away, whereas Keija is my Blacksmith (and still hasn’t finished learning the Lightning Steel CD patterns).
I’d been looking forward to wearing this set because I love the asymmetric shoulders, fancy belt buckle, and pheasant feathers in the helm. It’s very handsome as-is, but as a Transmogrification fanatic, I couldn’t resist mixing it up just a little:
Of the characters that I had at level 85 at the end of Cataclysm, only my Druid and my Human Mage haven’t yet gotten to level 90. Kerisa will make it to 90 eventually — I should start queueing for an LFD a day with her so that I can learn how to Tree. Unless I decide that I really really want to get Double Agent before the next expansion comes out and burn her from 85 to 90 via LFD, however, Kinevra probably will not make it to 90. I’m more interested in bringing up my Tauren Priest and Paladin and my first and favorite Mage, the Blood Elf Kaelinda.
