I personally prefer punching Rivendare in the face for an hour to level unarmed skill.As an unarmed ret paladin in ICC gear he dies very, very slowly and you can always stop punching him for two minutes to get him back to full health.Not to mention the fact that you get an extra chance to get his mount after you're done.

I've done this achievement on all my level 80 toons but I go no further than Dalaran to complete it. Just pop into the Violet Hold and hit the mobs that are running around. I just stand in the corner off to the side of the stairs and pull a mob to me and wail on it till its dead. You can also put it in heroic mode and do the same thing.

I liked punching domesticated felboars (http://cata.wowhead.com/npc=21195). Just pull one over to Oronok Torn-heart and you can fight them naked, since the friendly ork will heal you whenever you get low. Simply start punching one and go off to do something more interesting (watch TV, write a novel, observe grass growing etc.). You only need check in every 30 mins or so to start a new boar going.

I prefer to fly down underneath Dalaran and melee the trees down there. They heal up on their own and if you use the white weapons available from vendors, you don't do enough damage to take them out.On that note, the white weapons from vendors not only produce lower damage than typical weapons, they also have the advantage of having very quick speeds. Stop by the vendor in Dalaran and you can pick up a stave with less than 2.0 swing speed... definitely speeds things up a lot!

@NodonnThat's exactly how I've done Knuckle Sandwich and Master of Arms. Just ran Stratholme for a couple of hours. Got me a good start on Argent Champion as well. No mount though.About that, I've heard that Argent Dawn rep might also be going away. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Dharmabhum (or anyone), where can you buy white weapons in Dalaran? I was searching for a white armor merchant (I needed a level 60+ chest piece) to skill up enchanting, and I couldn't find any white weapons for sale.

I always recommend leveling unarmed the way I did it: go beat on Grol the Destroyer in the Blasted Lands for a couple of hours. He's at 42, 12. Once I hit 80, one of the first things I did was level all my weapon skills (including unarmed) in his little room.Why Grol? Because you can't kill him. Like, ever. He's one of the quest mobs for the Razelikh chain, and the only way to kill him is to use one of the special weapons you get from that chain. No weapon? Invincible mob. You can just charge right in there and punch him in his blubbery gut to your heart's content.A few tips. First, he's got several other mobs in his room. Kill them first, obviously. They will respawn eventually, but they are no challenge for a level 80. Second, Grol has a knockback which can get annoying, so I'd stand with my back to the wall while you fight him.Why Grol instead of one of the other two minions of the demon? Because he's nice and close to Stonard, that's why.So, in summary: Blasted Lands + a couple hours + a good movie = the most painless route possible to two feats of strength. Enjoy.

@Andostre: The Dalaran weapon vendor is by the exit to the flight platform, opposite side from the mount vendors.However, he only sells level 70+ white weapons with higher dps. For weapon skill leveling, I'd recommend getting the lowest level white weapons from a vendor in a capital city or lowbie quest hub instead.

We recently started beating on Anachronos out in Tanaris to get our alts' weapon skill up. With a tank, he doesn't hit very hard, and he never dies.
