Fun With Achievements

Well, after a quick Slave Pens run yesterday, I managed to get the Flame Keeper achievement for Joar. Mid-Summer is definitely one of my favorite holidays. The PvP element that it introduces (without the frustration and near-impossibility that goes with the PvP achievement on Children's Week) makes it especially fun and different. Particularly for a squishy character like Joar.

I've got about a day and a half worth of dailies left to get Champion of Undercity with Joar, who will also get the title since he's already exalted with Undercity.

I also ran some friends through Scholo last weekend and managed to grab some of the books there, so I'm thinking about trying to knock out the Well Read achievement on Joar as well over the next few day - and maybe try to grab a few non-combat pets from assorted vendors to try to get the achievement there.

And last but certainly not least, I'm thinking about grinding out some battlegrounds and Wintergrasps on Tormal, my under-loved level 80 Death Knight. My son keeps telling me how much fun PvP is with a Death Knight, but Tormal just needs more gear - the Savage Saronite stuff is good, but just isn't cutting it most of the time.

Of course, all of this distracts from leveling my alts, but it's all about having fun with the game, right?


  1. Sorry for being a noob but how does one get to the Slave Pens and specifically Ahune? Is Ahune soloable by a 80 BM Hunter or 80 Prot Pally?

  2. The Slave Pens are in Zangarmash in the middle of Serpent Lake. You've got to dive under the water a bit in the middle of the big structure in the center of the lake, but there's a few different instances down there (including Underbog).

    Ahune is a level 70 elite and spawns a decent number of elemental adds during the fight. I would think it could be solo'd by both of those - I'd probably give the prot pally slightly better odds.


Necromancer Done. Only Warden Remains

 I managed to get the Necromancer to level 50, so now only the Warden remains.  He's currently sitting at level 39, so it's not too ...
