Baby hasn’t come yet, so I figured I might as well run another alt through the acquisition of Light’s Heart and the remaining Artifacts for her class. The Warlock was next up on the list.
I haven’t observed NPC reactions to Light’s Heart in any of the other Order Halls, but this one seemed entirely necessary and appropriate! It gave me a chuckle.
When Kalaneia reached level 102, Calydus suggested that she retrieve the other two Arifacts that he had found information about — the ones that she had rejected originally as being unsuitable for her favored school of magic. She still wasn’t interested in using those Artifacts herself, but she conceded that it would be the responsible thing to do to get them out of the hands of their current owners and into the custody of the Council of the Black Harvest. She decided that obtaining the other two Artifacts would be a good test for Kishalla.
The girl had shown up shortly after the conquest of Dreadscar Rift, claiming to be an apprentice of Shinfel Blightsworn and demanding that the hunt for her mistress must be pursued without delay.
“You will serve me now,” Kalaneia had told Kishalla, though she didn’t really want or feel like she needed an apprentice, “and you will bide your time until Rittsyn’s minions have managed to become competent enough to find us a lead on Shinfel.”
The Netherlord’s Tag-Along
Faded Spirit-Wrencher Shoulders, Ariya’s Auspicious Robe, Gem-Inlaid Velvet Cinch, Amaranthine Handwraps, any dark slippers, Chillwind Staff
I didn’t have anything specific in mind for the outfit of Kalaneia’s alter-ego, but I did have a specific appearance that I wanted — the smaller hoop earrings instead of the larger ones and the burgundy hair color in the “shy” cut. I didn’t originally intend to change the face, but I flipped through the options anyway and discovered that whereas I’d thought I already had the darkest lip color for Kalaneia, there was actually a face with a darker shade of red. So I picked that one.
Then I made an outfit to complement the appearance I’d chosen.
As I had guessed would happen when I did the Unholy Death Knight Artifact, the Affliction Warlock had the same conversation with Revil Kost. This time, I chose the trying-to-be-reasonable dialog options, and the final reply that Kost gave me was appropriately different than the final reply my Death Knight had gotten after choosing the sarcastic dialog options.
During this week, I also played through Val’sharah again, and I realized that the Karazhan Catacombs and the Black Rook Hold dungeons (where we rescue Maiev and a Demon Hunter) are the same map. The Black Rook Hold dungeons aren’t full of all the random cool knick-knacks that the Kharazhan Catacombs contain, though!
The Demonology questline started with a fun little scavenger hunt in Dalaran. I tried to guess where each of the items would be before I looked for the dot on my minimap, and I was right about all of them.
I rather expected Archmage Celindra to try to interfere with the ritual to locate Thal’kiel, so I was a little disappointed when she didn’t even seem to notice it happening.
I did both of these questlines in Destro spec.
Now I’ve completed “Arsenal of Power” for 8 classes, with Warrior, Druid, Priest, and Paladin remaining.
