Welcome to the Machine: Surely You joust!

June 8th by Nethaera

We’re spotlighting two quests this week each with their own unique mechanics, one Horde specific series and one series that both the Horde and Alliance can take part in.

Welcome to the Machine

We’re spotlighting a Horde quest this week that puts a unique spin on just what a quest is all about with Welcome to the Machine, a Horde quest that puts a unique spin on just what a quest is all about with Welcome to the Machine and a quest that both Horde and Alliance can do within Mount Hyjal- Vigilance on Wings.

Beginning in Hillsbrad Foothills at the Southpoint Gate, High Executor Darthalia is looking out for YOUR future and has a task to set you on the path to greatness. You’ll be tasked with giving out three — tasks…

You’ll meet a few very different adventurers as you send them on their way, from the… directionally challenged, to a great hero (in his mind) of the Horde, to someone truly truly… awesome.

In the end, you’ll earn 1,550 experience, 250 reputation with Undercity and a choice of items that will forever remind you of your ascendance to greatness (or at least an ascendance to a skeletal horse) for just a moment or two.

Faction: Horde
Location:Hillsbrad Foothills
Level: 19
Quests: First Quest Dispensed, Second Quest Dispensed, Third Quest Dispensed

Surely You Joust

There’s something to be said about grabbing a Twilight Firelance and taking flight in a cave filled with bubbling molten hot lava and feathered foul, so we’re going to as we shine a light on a series of quests in Mount Hyjal.

Available to both the Horde and the Alliance at level 80 this series culminates in a repeatable daily quest. You’ll also have the opportunity to receive a battle pet of your choice- either the Gold Mini Jouster or the Blue Mini Jouster. You’ll also earn gold and reputation with the Guardians of Hyjal as you progress through the quests. Fans of another classic game will also find themselves filled to the brim with nostalgia.

 You’ll begin this series of quests within the Shrine of Aviana where you’ll speak with Morthis Whisperwing who will send you to The Flamewake to speak with Farden Talonshrike for The Hatchery Must Burn.

We hope you aren’t afraid of heights, or flying, or things flying at you, or hot molten lava, because for the next series of quests you’ll need to equip a Twilight Firelance, mount one of Aviana’s Guardians, and fly right into the face of danger. At least you’ll get some practice by visiting a flag on the ledge with Flight in the Firelands.

Once you have flight down, you’ll be battling Twilight Knight Riders in Wave One and Twilight Lancers in Wave Two.

In Egg Wave, you’ll need to destroy 40 Firelands Eggs to be rewarded one of two battle pets either the Gold Mini Jouster or the Blue Mini Jouster.

To complete this series of quests, you’ll need to Return to Aviana at the Shrine of Aviana in Mount Hyjal where you’ll have a choice of quest rewards, some experience, a bit of silver, and reputation.

But wait! There’s more. If you return to Farden Talonshrike, you’ll be able to take the newly available (to you) daily quest – Vigilance on Wings. You’ll earn experience and 250 reputation with the Guardians of Hyjal on completion of the quest and after completing it 10 times you’ll receive the Achievement, The ‘Unbeatable?’ Pterodactyl: BEATEN and a Chirping Box. You should probably open it. This will reward you the other Mini Jouster you didn’t pick as your reward after the Egg Wave quest.
