Are there more than one entry point for each faction in Pandaria, or are we all going to be clustered over one poor questgiver who's hidden by an ass on a Traveller's Tundra Mammoth again?

(note to self - start doing the Dalaran cooking daily again to stock up on Baby Spice, just to be safe)

I'll be that guy on my Mammoth while under the effects of giant feast that camps on the quest giver, its so much fun getting tons of whispers and it always makes for a good laugh./run before the wave of down votes hit.
I forgot to add that I am pretty good at canceling the effects of baby spice before i get too small. I wonder if i could just make a /cancelaura macro.mwahahaha

Wowcrendor and Jesse Cox released a video earlier today of them doing the first few horde quests - long story short, it looks like everyone better start stocking up on baby spice. I know somewhere Blizz said they wanted to make the zones less linear than in Cata, but it looks like to start horde and alliance will be crammed into the same small areas fighting over the same 4 spawns of x item to pick up and y beast to kill. They only did the first few quests, so it could open up once you complete the intro segment. I hope so, or I will be a sad panda... er, space goat.

Actually, now that I recall, there's a way around that that someone here told us about, before Cata hit.Say Varian is the questgiver. Create a keybind that binds "interact with target" to a keypress. I've got mine on '?'Get near enough to Varian to get the quest.Type /tar varianHit ?Turn in quest and /rude the mammoth-sitter.

Or just skip the whole thing and turn on friendly nameplates. Your giant ass on the tundra mount doesn't mean shit when I have NAME RAY VISION!

Or, you can just Ctrl+V (or just V, it's either of those), to pop up the npc nameplates. All you have to do then is click on the plate to interact with the NPC.There's also nothing sad little basement dwellers like laudickj can do to stop it. Hey, if you want to claim to be one of those types of people, you gotta take on all of what that entails, cheeto dust and all.

The other way that works is just toggle friendly nameplates on (default is Shift-V) and click on the questgiver's nameplate.

@laudickjI'll be the guy who reported you and the guy who will post in your rage post on the forums when you get a temp ban for it.

I'm just curious what the "lau" and the "j" mean in his name... clearly, I already understand the "dick" part.

Is there a way to get the nameplates to not move all over the place? I use the interact with target keybind, since a ton of people standing on top of a quest giver usually means a ton of shifting nameplates as people move around, making it hard to click on the one I want.

Reminds me of the night Cata launched. Two hours before it went live, in Org, there were 20 trade trolls on top of the flight trainer, being jerkfaces.What they didn't realize was ANY flight trainer sold Old World flying, and absolutely none of them were in Dalaran. I enjoyed telling everyone online in my guild and on my friends list that.

You can also use raid target icons (without needing to be in a party) to get close to the quest giver if someone is really huge, if you're not in range to use the "react with" keybind.

It WAS one of the most hilarious parts of the Justice vendor, with the little invisible wall in front of him.Watching all the players like mime's, smacking into the invisible wall and keep running.They should have added a "smash into wall and fall down" animation to that area somehow, to increase my amusement.
3-29-2012 @ 2:38PM
Or Ctrl-tab to tab through friendly targets nearby, eventually you'll get the questgiver.

Another way to get around the funsuckers that I've used is to zoom your camera all the way in to first person view, then just walk up to the NPC. Everyone blocking him just disappears from your screen as if they're not even there. You can interact with them as normal then.
