My Death Knight reached level 101 through fishing dailies, trying to get the Bone Fishing Pole. For the entirely frivolous reason that if she got her Artifact weapon, I’d only have to do one click to swap between her main weapon and her fishing pole when going fishing — instead of two, to re-equip main- and off-hand weapons separately — I took her to get her Artifact Weapon and establish her Order Hall.
Turns out, with Acherus as the Death Knight Order Hall having been established way back at level 58 after the Battle of Light’s Hope Chapel, there wasn’t anything to do on the Order Hall front before going to get an Artifact, as the other classes have had. So off she went to Icecrown to pay a visit to the new Lich King.
Frost DK feels very powerful. Other characters have died during their Artifact acquisition scenarios, but Kregga barely even broke a sweat.
I confess that I didn’t recognize most of the Frostmourne-trapped souls that I encountered during the scenario. The two at the end, though — how interesting that those two should end up trapped inside Frostmourne after their defeats!
Meanwhile, my Hunter had also reached level 101, through Pet Battling. I had been planning all along to get Talonclaw first, because it is the Tauren weapon.
The way the background for the acquisition of Talonclaw was laid out, the way the story ended for the NPCs who led me on the quest was inevitable — but still heartwrenching.
I noticed one of the Garrison inn recruit Monk followers on the Wandering Isle the other day; I saw several Garrison inn recruit Hunter followers at Trueshot Lodge! I shall have to keep an eye out for Garrison inn recruit followers at the Order Halls of the other classes.
Now I only have four characters left who still need to get through the opening scenes of their Order Hall campaigns: Paladin, Warrior, Druid, and Alliance Mage.
