I can't smell a giant rat

I am of course refering to the achievement I Smell a Giant Rat, and how it's not that easy to get this achievement and pet. As I am leveling up my warlock these days, I've been spending a lot of time in Dalaran (oh how I've missed Dalaran since Cata came out), doing the cooking and fishing dailys among other things. Always when I'm fishing in the sewers I'm hoping to magicaly fish up the Giant Sewer Rat, even though I know there is a really low droprate (about 0,4% chance according to wowhead). So, I'm fishing and fishing...

And fishing, and fishing...

And then I get a bit bored, so how about exploring the Underbelly?

There is so much to see and so many funny details in the sewers of Dalaran, at first I thought maybe talking to some local fishermen could help me fish up that giant rat faster, but there wasn't much help in Angelo Pescatore, other than he could recommend me a drink at the Cantrips & Crows.

So, after a Snowplum Brandy or two, slightly tipsy, I could start my exploring!

Underbelly Croc stares at you hungrily as he licks his chops... Ups, slowly walking the other way...

Oh! Look! Thats the one I want! 

I wonder how she got that thing down here?

Excuse me sir, are you allright? Hello! Hmmm, sleeping it off it seems... This guy had a Kungaloosh or three too many, luckily he can learn you how to make them, if you've been questing in Sholazar Basin and finished The Taste Test quest (the last in a chain of many), this drunken mage offers you the quest Fletcher's Lost and Found, that teaches you how to make Kungaloosh.

Ups! Gone just a bit too far there, the sewers had to end somewhere, right? I'm going back in!
Hmmm, the Black Market seems like a nice place...

I'm NOT fishing that thing up!

Now, this is a interesting guy, Darahir is the only vendor you can buy the Ghostly Skull pet from.

Nice, isn't it?
There are so many curious things down here, lets have a look;

Hmmm, what's this? I can pick it up... Can I just.. Take one?!

Underbelly Elixir, you sure about this? it says.. What could possibly happen if I have a little taste?

Oh, that what happens, lets try another one!

OMG, I'm fat! With a moustache! Hey, wait! +50 fishing bonus, not that bad beeing turned into a Tuskarr after all, back to fishing for that giant rat!

Orc goes belf!

This is actually an old (from when I started up the blogg) project, and I just remembered it today! This was originally gonna be my contribution to a Hallows End costume contest, but I never enetered. I still think the idea is kinda funny, so I found out it's too good to waste. The whole idea is that my orc wants to dress up as an blood elf for Hallows End, as we all know orcs are chubby and not all that feminine, so fitting into a blood elf costume isn't neceserry all that simple...

As you can see I'm showing off a bit here with my Silvermoon-title, my Swift Red Hawkstrider mount (both obtained through the Argent Tournaments in Icecrown) and my Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling, bought from Jilanne in Eversong Woods (she also sells the Silver and Red one).

For the outfit, my beautiful orc shaman wears the whole Sun Cured set; the Sun Cured Boots, Sun Cured Pants, Sun Cured Belt, Sun Cured Vest, Sun Cured Bracers and the Sun Cured Gloves. This set is sold by Jainthess Thelryn at Sunstrider Isle in Eversong Woods. This set is leather but can be worn from level 1!

The back item is either a Shroud of Silvermoon, a Cape of Silvermoon or a Mantle of Silvermoon. They all look the same and can be bought from the Silvermoon Quartermaster Magistrix Nizara in Eversong Woods once exalted with Silvermoon.

The best part of it all is the head; the Blood Elf Bandit Mask, which is a beautiful head piece that only drops from the Blood Elf Bandit on Azuremyst Isle, the starting island of the Draenei. As horde it's quite the adventure to travel there and hunt down the bandit for his mask, it's well worth it as these masks sell for around 800 gold on my server!

Two new mounts today!

I'm so happy! I kinda surprisingly got two new mounts today!

The first one I was waiting for, I recently recruited my boyfriend to start play WoW, and was just waiting for him to pay for two months of gameplay, so I could get the mount. And today I got it! I was really surprised, cause I thought I'd still get the old recruit a friend mount, the X-53 Touring Rocket, but it wasn't at all... I t was the absolutly amazingly beautiful Obsidian Nightwing. It is such a treat, I actually saw one in Orgrimmar yesterday or something and I just thought it was wonderful, but I didn't realize it was the new recruit a friend mount.

At the same time I was kinda sad, because this probably means that I'll never get the X-53 Touring Rocket mount, and that bugs me because I actually have the oldest recruit a friend mount, the Swift Zhevra.

The second mount I recieved today, I probably got months ago without knowing... Since it's been possible to send a scroll of resurrection ingame, I have done so from time to time, I just didn't realize that one of my friends actually accepted AND payed for a month, so I discovered this today, and voila, I'm the proud owner of a Spectral Wind Rider. And I'm up to a total of 91 mounts on my main character Skadd! Yay! :D

Old Thousand Needles

It's almost been a year since my last/first post, hundreds of reasons for that, but mainly because I have not been that much online playing WoW.
I thought I'd start with a tiny post just to show of one of my favorite screenshots, and also one of my pre-Cata favorite places in WoW. This picture shows my troll warrior Jernsaksa (one of my earliest characters, which I don't even have anymore) riding her raptor through the shimmering flats in old Thousand Needles. It's really just a beautiful sight!
