In too deep…

I hate caves.

I really REALLY hate caves.

I’ve spent the majority of my evening in caves today. Stupid Highmountain world quests. Stupid mountains. Stupid caves. Stupid quests. Stupid.

I blogged about this before (here) if you’re interested and unfortunately nothing has changed. NO Chromeeh, I don’t care if they – I paraphrase – “pretty much have the same layout and it’s easy when you learn it”… I still hate them. I get in, I get lost, I get stuck then I have to hearth out and fly all the damn way back. Rinse. Repeat.

What’s with the new bottomless caves where there are elites at the bottom and no way out?! Some kind of new “immersive” experience??? HELL NO BLIZZARD. It doesn’t help with your stupid “scrolls of escape” because usually the damn thing I need is one level above me… take me the here instead.

I’m fact, whilst I’m at it… I spent at least ten minutes looking around for the “fevered letter” dude (and aggroing a million murksnout beasties) before remembering IT WASN’T EVEN IN THE DAMN CAVE. Stupid quest. Stupid cave.

I also did the new Karazhan today.  That was good… psychedelic! I quite enjoyed it, considering I hate the original so much… The chessboard experience was particularly cool. 

Still grumpy though. Stupid caves.


Monday Moan #8


It was a tough choice what to moan about this week as there has been SO much that has annoyed me!!

I chose:

Caves and Mines

Now, remember I am currently levelling only my fourth character and I haven’t run these quests lots. This is generally how it pans out:

1.Pick up quest

2. Follow tomtom arrow (without reading quest objective) to middle of field on top of hill
3. Fly around looking for the question mark
4. Don’t find question mark, get annoyed, read objective, realise it’s in a cave, /sigh and fly to bottom of hill
5. Fly around hill for several minutes trying to find entrance


6. Fly into entrance, pull lots of mobs, get dismounted, die from pulling too many mobs
7. Graveyard, spend another 5minutes finding corpse, res, continue into mine/cave/hellhole
8. Head in general direction of arrow trying to follow an incomprehensible map and an arrow that points through solid walls
9. Kill mobs, kill some more mobs, pull an elite by accident, die and repeat steps 7 and 8
10. Realise I need to collect stuff en route, retrace steps to entrance
11. Pick up items, continue towards the mystical quest handing in place at the end of the cave, try to follow mini map which is NOT helpful at all
12. /spit on a horde stealing my items whilst I fight the mob in front of it
13. Get hopelessly lost in the cave, get really cross, retrace steps to entrance, repeat steps 8, 11 and 12


14. Give up, ask Mr B to come and help, he refuses stating that I ‘have to learn’, get annoyed and continue onwards
15. Eventually find quest mob, on top of a ledge. Realise I am on the wrong level. Get annoyed. Repeat Step 13.
16. Find the quest giver, realise follow-up quest requires going somewhere else in the mine, abandon it and head out
17. Repeat step 13
18. Give up, hearthstone and vow never to put myself through it again
