The Road to Rare Riches

Advisory: image heavy post, best viewed on site.

A little off subject first. Since day one my game comp has been running on only 2GB's of OEM ram. Last night I was gifted with four (4), brand spankin' new 1GB sticks of ram! The surgery is set for this morning. I'm expecting a full recovery and enhanced preformance. At the very least, I should think that I'll be able to see my spells cast in real time. YEA!!! /dance

Aygaren was feeling a bit lonely being the only one trudgeing through the Outlands. Feeling that it was his duty to encourage his 'brothers-in-arms' to join the cause, he sent out some spirit messages.

Dufit scanned Ay's message, which spoke of endless opportunities for mercenary work, demons and monsters such as never seen before, and limitless gold to be had. Dufit, being the little goblin he is, saw two things in the note which were high on his list. Killing stuffs....and GOLD!

Emberwing, one of many Tanaris rares
Dufit wasn't of Dark Portal age as yet, but quick runs through Tanaris, Felwood and a minor touchdown in Un'Goro gave him his passport. Along that route, he became skilled at locating rare beasts, realizing the unique amount of gold they carried. Not to mention 'better than your average armor' pieces and tons of experience for his mercenary resume. After all, "Time is money, friend."

The Zangermarsh beginning

His boldness in traveling roads was his downfall.

"He fired first! Really!" ~Dufit

It is not wisdom to be the only walking breathing entity in a barren area.

Giant red rocks, when everyone else is using small white-ish rocks?
Hellfire Peninsula seemed a bit rough at first. Stories of rare beasts roaming about were many, but sightings were about as rare as the beasts. Not to be one-up'ed by Aygaren though, he made daring advances into Zangarmarsh and Terokkar Forest finding his way. It was Zangarmarsh though, which broke open the rare treasure chest hunting grounds. To date, Dufit has five marked off his list of 20 KoS hit list.

Of Note: I don't use any add-ons to scan for rares. The boys tend to be a bit old-fashioned in this way. Talking to the locals, along with a lot of foot-work and fly-bys. And then there's their 'go-to' sage, Euphyley. Without her excellant mapping skills and experience, Dufit could easily have fallen off the end of the world. Several times.
Happy Hunting All!


  1. My Undead Warlock keeps checking for Aygaren every time she logs in and was disappointed to never see him.

    Now I know why! He's also a goblin!

  2. :) Aygaren was taking a little break waiting for the technical stuff to be resolved (the new ram) He should be back this coming week.
    I think your Warlock might like Dufit, he practices in shadow-ie priestly ways. He's hanging out in Nagrand these days.
