So back in the fall of 2010 I decided to take a crack at finishing up Loremaster on my main. I got pretty close too. Within 40-50 quests or so.
I had been planning on it changing with the release of Cataclysm and was planning to get it finished by then. But then the pre-patch for Cataclysm dropped, and the ability to finish it actually died a couple of weeks before I had anticipated, so I never got it done. Everything in Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor effectively completely reset except for a handful of zones on each continent. And I never went back.
So now I'm taking another look at it again, anticipating a long drought of new content between now and when Legion drops in early 2017 (joke!).
As of this morning, I have 890 quests to go, 397 in Kalimdor and 493 in Eastern Kingdoms. So I think I'm going to work on it a bit, in between fiddling with leveling on my Alliance toons. I had my 17th toon hit 100 last week, so I now have 5 to go to have a max level of each class from each faction. And given how fast the leveling process is now, I could finish those 5 easily in 2 months or less, so I've got plenty of time to finish this up. The mage is up next, who will be further boosted by a nice shiny new heirloom ring out of my shipyard missions.
So that's it for my Warcraft entertainment these days. I'm going to be going back and doing some old school questing rather than worrying about more and more garrison missions to accumulate more and more gold that I'm not actually sure what I'm going to do with anyway.
