Ive spent much longer than I would've liked in the Barrens and surrounding areas. The sun is much too hot and sears whatever exposed skin I have so I spend so much of my time going from tree to tree just to hide in the shade so I don't start smelling like cooked rotting corpse. Luckily, I didn't have much to focus on in just the Barrens. I was tasked with helping a Druid ally of mine with quests in Hillsbrad. This is when the fun began.
We started in Tarren Mill, making many trips to and from the nearby Alliance farm. During our expeditions we ran into many many Alliance. They were all such easy prey and the fear they must've felt seeing two enemies come out of stealth ready to rip them up made them taste extra good. During our many ventures back and forth from the farm we had killed many cats and bears for the quests we had in Tarren Mill. This lead to us practicing our skinning skills together as we are both skinners, he just specializes in skinning and herbalism while I specialize in skinning and leatherworking. We'll work together to gather as much skins as possible and I'll make gear for us both with it. It's a good system we have between us.
After we had helped Tarren Mill with the assault on Hillsbrad we headed our separate ways for a bit. I had gone to Thousand Needles and he stayed in Hillsbrad with a fellow friend of ours. While I was in Thousand Needles I ran into much less Alliance, but I did get to help the Tauren stationed out at Freewind Post with many things - including spying on the nearby Grimtotem. I snuck around the camp and stole the notes they had laying around their camp with minimal casualties. I aimed to get in and out without having to kill any Grimtotem as to not alert them of an intruder but I had no choice on the ones I did kill. If I let them escape I would've been spotted for sure. Regardless, I did succeed in the mission and we successfully killed their leader and saved the Tauren he had taken prisoner to become his wife. May she live a better life and may her brother rest in peace.
After working on some tests of my abilities I was told I had to go a remote area of Stonetalon to continue my quest. So I treked out to Stonetalon, stopping by the camp we have out there incase I ever needed to head by later - I'd rather fly to the camp than re-walk obviously. Once I had gotten to the camp I took a short break but then headed out to continue my tests. I was sent to Ashenvale to retrieve a book and was then quizzed on my sense of lore. Luckily for me I have studied the history of our world in the past and most of it was still clear to me, so the hardest part of the test was getting the book. The Tauren who was testing me decided that was all he needed and immediately suggested I visit someone in Undercity. Now I'm not saying this test might just be to see how far I'm willing to walk, but I'm starting to think it might be so.
I also did many other things, such as clearing out Blackfathom Depths, murdering/eating Alliance scum, and adventuring with allies. We did clear Razorfen Kraul late last night but nothing really interesting there, just some pigmen being pigmen.
Oh - yes - actually, one big thing did happen yesterday. We helped our warrior get their Whirlwind Axe. Now they cleave through enemies as if they were paper, and we had to fight much stronger enemies in a group of 5. Often while trying to gather the supplies we needed from the stronger enemies, we'd get jumped by a nearby group of Alliance. This made gathering materials much harder, but luckily, they left after a while. Now our warrior has promised to pay us back with their services, specifically being our meatshield for anything we could ever need. This was the agreement.
That's all for now, perhaps there will be more in the next few days, but I feel like I've spent a large majority of the last few days running from A to B then B to C, ect. If I wasn't already dead I'd probably have some pain in my legs, so thank the Banshee Queen for making me this way.
