|Revisiting the Kalu'ak with my Death Knight|
So what did I do? Pretty much the quests in Star's Rest and Moa'ki Harbor. Star's Rest works pretty well as a quest hub. There is another confrontation with someone talking to the shadow of the Lich King, just to keep our minds on the end goal, but it was generally your regular collection of kill, gather and visit quests.
I like Moa'ki Harbor more, which is good because it was one of the three quest hubs for the Tuskarrmageddon achievement that I finished with Kanter, my hunter, so I visited it a lot during Wrath. As a pretty regular fisherman, I coveted (and eventually purchased) the Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole, not just for the 30 additional fishing skill, but also the ability to breath underwater. With it and the Reins of the Water Strider and the Angler's Fishing Raft from Anglers Reputation in Mists I have the option to swim under water, walk on the water/land, or raft of the water and fish. These little things make me happy.
There is something very pleasant for me about the Walrus-like Kalu'ak. I generally like animal races, but, also, in all their quests they just seem very centered. I always feel uncomfortable with the repeatable quest to gather Snowfall Glade Pups and I had to do it many times to reach exalted with the Kalu'ak. Yes, they try to justify it with saying that they are saving the pups, but killing their elders to take them away just seems wrong.
So that was this weeks brief visit to Dragonblight. I should reach my goal for level 76 there next week and possibly I'll start working on Sholazar Basin. I don't mind the thought of leveling to 80 in Northrend, but the thought of getting to level 85 so I can reach max level in my professions doesn't seem like fun at all. I guess that says something about my experience with the Cataclysm questing zones.
