This is Gundivar and welcome to the first episode in my new series “Paladin with a mission”
Before we kick it off I got a few things to say.
First things I’m changing the idea about my mission. It’s not a very great difference but I decided to split it up. It has been pointed out to me that it might get boring very fast if I did it all on one character, so I decided to do it on 2 characters.
Meet Gundivar: Human paladin he’ll be doing the eastern kingdoms and Borean Tundra.
Meet Mirandus: N-Elf Druid He’ll be doing Kalimdor and Howling Fjord
The other thing I want to do is thank a few players from the Blizzard forums.
Mainly I thank Gráinne , Crystalpick, Dridzt and dlui.
Gráinne is the one that made me aware of a nice add-on called Multishot and also the one that suggested doing the mission on 2 separate characters as it would become very dull very fast. So thanks for that.
Crystalpick is the one that made Gráinne aware of the multishot addon and therefor made me aware as well.
Dridzt and Dlui are the creators of the Multishot add on.
So What is multishot?
Multishot is an addon that automatically takes screenshots from every memorable event, like leveling up, achievements to first kills. You can set it up very easily to ignore certain events and to capture others.
Here is the download link for those interested.
Sadly I didn’t have multishot for the first 29 levels and so I do not have many screenshots from my way through Elwynn forrest, Westfall, Loch Modan and all the earlier dungeons. But starting now I have everything.
Now on to the first episode of “A paladin with a mission”
A little recap of the mission I set before me.
1)Explore every zone and do all the quests
2)Get loremaster during leveling
3)Catch all pets in every zone I come in
4)Visit every dungeon once to get achievements and some gear
5)Level up archaeology and Fishing as I progress through the zones
6)Visit all old content in order they were released starting with Molten Core
Gundivar is a human paladin, he was born from the coming together of a keyboard and a human with a mind for an epic quest.
When he dropped from the sky and landed quiet gently in front of the abbey in Northshire it was pretty obvious that something had happened to the once colorful and fertile land.
Apparently the aftermath of the cataclysm had opened a path down from Burning steps and let through a horde of Orcs. The orcs had driven out the Defias who had been plaguing the land before the orcs. They burned down the vineyards and were now pressing on to the abbey. But the defenders of Northshire and soldiers from Stormwind held on. It was apparent that something needed to be done. Gundivar arranged his UI, picked up his hammer and set about driving the orcs back and help reclaim the vineyards. When he dispatched the Orc leader with a mighty swing of his wooden mallet he went back to the abbey and was regarded as a hero and given a place in the Stormwind militia by Marshal McBride. Gundivar left Northshire and headed straight for the town of Goldshire.
He arrived in Goldshire and instantly noticed there were a lot of people like him in the town. Lots of heroes were hanging around outside the inn. “With so many heroes in these parts of the woods evil doesn’t stand a chance” thought Gundivar. But as soon as he approached the center of town he heard they spoke a strange language and had some very weird customs. He heard them yelling things like “LULZ” and “PWNED”, it were words that Gundivar never heard off. There were always people throwing down flags in front of Gundivar’s feet as he tried to make his way to Marshal Dughan. When he stepped over the flags people would get angry and start calling him “NUB” and “Chicken”. But Gundivar would not be deterred from his quest to liberate Elwynn forest and warning Goldshire from the battle of Northshire.
In Goldshire Gundivar prepared to help out with some problems in southern farms and mines but as that would take him in the forest for a while he decided to prepare for his journey first.
He would need to be able to eat so he decided to go to Tomas the chef from Lion’s pride inn and ask him how to best prepare some good meals with nothing but a camp fire. The cheft learned him some tricks and he suggested Gundivar that it would also be good to learn fishing as there is nothing so sweet as a nicely cooked self caught fish.
So Gundivar went to Lee Brown near his Cabin next to the lake and learned all about fishing and bought a fishing rod to take with him on his journeys.
Next he decided that he might have to kill some animals in order to survive and eat in the forest and he didn’t want anything to go to waste so after asking around in town he found his way to Lien Farner. She learned him all about skinning dead beasts and animals and she mentioned also a nice trick about how to extract magical essence from magic items that were off no use to Gundivar and by doing that saving him space in his backpack.
The last stop Gundivar made was to Marcus Jensen to learn about pets and get himself some company for the road ahead.
Gundivar travelled around Elwynn Forest helping everyone on it’s way while skinning dead animals, battling his new pets against other pets, catching the ones he didn’t have yet and fishing to cook his meals. He helped out the southern farms and help deal with a problem of two lovers from 2 different feuding families. He raided a mine overrun with Kobolds and taking their candles needed for a potion. He helped out the Eastvale Logging company with their bear, wolf and murloc troubles while unmasking a secret ploy to steal the gold from the goldmines. He then turned to the west as he heard that Westbrook Garrison had a problem with ever increasing Gnoll activity in the region. When he arrived he set about the gnolls with such fury as they had never seen before. He fought through their camps and finally reached a gnoll named “HOGGER”. Gundivar challenged him to single combat and a mighty battle ensued. They traded blow after blow and none wanted to give up any ground to the other. Finally Gundivar called upon the light and with one mighty light imbued swing he knocked Hogger to it’s knees and Hogger surrendered. Finally the Cavalry arrived and took Hogger into custody and dragged him off to the Stormwind stockades together with more of his gnoll friends. That was surely the last we’ll ever hear from Hogger. When he reached Westbrook Garrison again word came to Gundivar from trouble in Dun Morogh and the dwarves needed aid.
Gundivar set off towards Stormwind with his backpack full of skins. He sold them all on the auction house and got some nice extra add-ons for his backpack. He opened a bank account stored all his stuff and set off towards the Deeprun Tram heading for Ironforge.
That was the story for today people.
