@2 - You're looking at someone grinding booty bay bruisers to get Bloodsail rep.@4 - See belowFirst a couple corrections to the main article:I did my Bloodsail grind pre-TBC, so I can't say that you won't lose faction with Area 52 guys these days, but while I *am* an outcast from Everlook, Ratchet, Booty Bay, Gadgetzan and can't use the flight point in Marshall's Refuge (Un'Goro Crater).. and until I got higher level, I got harassed by goblins at Flame Crest (flight master isn't goblin though, so was able to use it still), my mage is perfectly accepted at Area 52 and Cosmowrench currently. I'm able to wander town, get quests (even from goblins) etc. So I think they're exempt from Bloodsail hatred.That, and the fact that Everlook, Gad and Booty Bay all have "rep repair NPCs" outside and A52/Cosmo don't, leads me to believe that Bloodsail Admirals should be ok in Outland.Also, it's not just a hat at Friendly level, a couple patches back they added boots, belt, pants and shirt at Neutral. No idea why they'd go and add stuff to the Bloodsail rep rewards, but happy they did. And just in case they they add more, I'm keeping my rep. Who cares if I have to shield, blink, shield, ice block, blink, etc every time I go to Caverns of Time, it's worth it :)Couple of tips for anyone interested in doing this:1. In your 30's or so, you can start the rep grind by killing Blackwater Raiders in the hidden pirate cove of Arathi Highlands.2. Around level 57 or so, you should be able to start grinding Booty Bay Bruisers. If you're doing it solo, that's about as good as you can get. If you're doing it with friends, you'll get more points from killing the tauren and goblin 'leaders' of Booty Bay, but be courteous to other players who may need them for quest turnins. (they respawn fairly quickly.. within 3 mins if I recall). Just watch out for nets and guns on the guards. They hurt.3. Don't do ANY quests event remotely near Booty Bay if you don't want to lose Bloodsail rep. I made the mistake of doing the 'giblets' quest because the NPCs involevd weren't Booty Bay faction, but I still lost 500 Bloodsail rep for just talking to the guy. Also, the Tanaris, Feralas and Hinterlands 'egg/chicken' escort quests are Booty Bay affiliated too.4. And a nugget I've never seen published anywhere else.. during holidays, guards in Booty Bay sleep.. VERY soundly. The quest you get at friendly for the Bloodsail Admiral's Hat requires you to kill the tauren and goblin leaders of BB. I think I did this on during the "July 4th" holiday. No guards intervened when I attacked the leaders and was able to finish it without a problem. :)When I was still running a mob kill count tracker, I had over 2000 kills just on the pirates in Arathi Highlands if I recall.Good luck to all you would-be Pirates out there.Senile - 70 Undead MageGM - Angry PiratesBloodhoof-USPS. Funny that I'm actually wearing my Bloodsail tshirt today.. only WoW related shirt I own. :)
