Continuing our theme of Love! Love! this week, I present the sweetest quest in World of Warcraft. (Stop that! I’m serious.)
You want to get this done before any untimely nerfing. I’m not saying it will be nerfed, I’m saying it’s got the stink of nerf because it’s a fairly simple quest line, largely solo-able if you have a flying mount, the item rewards don’t suck, and ka-ching! 42k netherwing reputation. That’s right … 42,000.
The quest line is detailed on Thottbot and begins in Shadowmoon Valley with a wandering NPC named Mordenai.
After completing a business transaction with Mordenai, he sends you into the air to talk to the big guy, Neltharaku.
Nelth is going to monopolize your time for a few quests and then he’ll share his dirty little secret: his mate has been captured by orcs and he needs your assistance.
The captured mate, Karynaku:
Recommended party size: five — that’s negotiable, depending on classes and talent specs. To be safe and avoid a run back, take five.
I won’t spoil the surprise quest ending but it’s sweet. Even a click-through quester like me appreciated the ending, as well as the ka-ching! plus 42k reputation (to neutral).
Like so many rescue quests, it’s a bittersweet victory: not long after you rescue Karynaku, she’s recaptured. *sigh*
Fercrissakes, if everytime you go into an orc fortress you’re captured, it’s time to come up with a Plan B.
