Feb 22nd 2010 5:03PM @Bloomindraal: That happened to me in Gundrak as well. At least our tank helped us kill the boss before getting his Elder and dropping group. What is it about holiday events that bring out both the best and worst in players? I can't count how many times during Love is in the Air that I got a random group for UK/HoS/OK who ninja'd the rose bouquet and left. Ditto the hats during Winter Veil.
Anyway...tanks so much for this clean, well-laid-out guide! I started working toward the Long Strange Trip meta during Winter Veil (I had just hit 80 in November, so I missed out on some of the Hallow's End achievements) and this was one I was not looking forward to doing. But with this guide I was able to honor all the non-dungeon Elders and the lower-level dungeon Elders in only two days, and I gathered the rest doing my daily random heroic. The only higher-level dungeon I had to solo for the Elder was HoS, since everyone skips the Krystallus boss, and as a rogue, I stealthed right through no problem.
Now Children's Week becomes the holiday I'm fearing the most...curse that PvP achievement.
Feb 22nd 2010 4:29PM I'm Alliance-side but I just had to have the Wind Rider cub. It's just so adorable, both in physical plush and in-game pet form! (And I ride around on a proto-drake anyway, blah to the boring gryphons.) It'll look great sitting next to my plush Weighted Companion Cube on my bed.
