Winterspring Frostsaber

I decided to push back my usual dailies and grind out the Wintersaber Trainers reputation as I was getting close to Exalted.

I was still looking at about 22 Frostsaber Provisions turn-ins, but as it was early I thought I’d see if the Winterfall Village was yet overrun with players for the Winterfall Intrusion Quest.

The few times I’ve stopped by there everything is already dead with many players camped around waiting for respawns so I normally just skip it.

Luck was with me last night as there were no players to be found, so I was able to complete 2 or 3 circuits of all the quests for a total of 800 reputation points per circuit.

I’d start with the Rampaging Giants quest, work back to Winterfall Intrusion and gather up meat for the Frostsaber Provisions along the way back to Riven Frostwind.

When I was at the last circuit I needed for Exalted, the Winterfall Village was empty.  No players around but no mobs either – I had arrived at the point when the bodies disappeared just before the respawns.  Someone had been there killing mobs so I expected it would start to get busy again.

I waited for a minute or two, the mobs started respawning and a quick run of the village completed the quest.

I don’t believe running a circuit of all 3 quests saved much time, but there is a psychological boost at seeing the reputation bar jump 800 points for tuning in 3 quests instead of 250 points for one quest.

Turned in my last 3 quests and hooray!  Exalted with the Wintersaber Trainers!

I was quite surprised when an Achievement popped up – I wasn’t expecting one so I missed the screenshot – but apparently there is an Achievement under Feats of Strength when one obtains a Winterspring Frostsaber.

Although it’s always nice to get an Achievement, I still believe those who ground out this reputation when the points were in the 50-75 range per quest turn-in should get a special Achievement or at least a Title!

I usually rotate my ground mounts once in a while, but I think I’ll be keeping this one on my Action Bar for a very long time!

Gnomish Army Knife and the Druid

An interesting incident happened during one of my quest turn-ins.  I noticed a player’s corpse at the bottom of the Frostsaber Rock – a Druid – that hadn’t released yet.  When I clicked on the body “Resurrectable” was written under the player’s usual information.

I see this often on my Priest, but it took me a few seconds to remember I had the Gnomish Army Knife in one of my bags, and it has a random chance of being able to shock a player back to life.

I thought what the heck, I’ll give it try – a “Defibrillator” bar started running and player suddenly came back to life.  The player thanked me profusely but I was happy just to see the Gnomish Army Knife in action.

I’m sure Druids can resurrect themselves but she was probably on the 30-minute cool down from a previous resurrection (she kept getting stunned by the Frostsabers roaming around – I cleared a path and escorted her out of the area because the Gnomish Army Knife is also on a 30-minute cool down.)

There is no guarantee the Gnomish Army Knife will work every time, but it’s handy to have around just in case the random possibility will work when one needs it.

Exalted with the Kirin Tor

Since I’ve only been working on the Daily Cooking and Fishing Quests for the Kirin Tor reputation, it’s taken me a while to reach Exalted.

I’m not sure what their Quartermaster sells, but I’ll do some research this time before I go shopping!
