Hello everyone and welcome back!
Today we continue right where we left off. We dealt with the humans in Tirigarde Keep, discovered plans crafted by their leaders with the details of more attacks and invasions in the future and were ordered to give these documents to one of the major leaders of the Horde: Vol'jin, Head Chief of the Darkspear Trolls.
But right as we turn in the quest, we become level 10! This is an important milestone as a player because we are given a choice between 3 talent specializations:
Marksmanship: A master archer or sharpshooter who excels in bringing down enemies from afar.
Survival: A rugged tracker who favors using animal venom, explosives, and traps as deadly weapons.
Beast Mastery: A master of the wild who can tame a wide variety of beasts to assist him in combat (Our choice).
We are also taught a very important ability, Aspect of the Hawk.
But the most exciting feature that comes with becoming a level 10 hunter is that we get to tame a beast that will act as a faithful companion for the rest of our journey!
We must learn how to interact with these animals and how to earn their trust, so we give it a few tries with different beasts as a test, First a boar, a crab and finally a fierce scorpion.
After proving ourselves capable enough to befriend the beasts we are given the ability to tame any animal we want (As long as its within our own level), and I have already found a most worthy companion to join us.
Say hi to CHONKYBOI!
ChonkyBoi is a level 7 boar and He comes with a couple abilities, before we show them, our trainer tells us we need the skills to teach him. He tasks us to go to Orgrimmar, a fellow hunter named Ormak Grimshot will give us the information we need.
Now we have 2 tasks given to visit the capital of the Horde: Orgrimmar, and since it's not far from Razor Hill (where we currently are), we decide to go there immediately., and after a short run north, we see its glorious gates:
We enter the city and notice its full with people from all around the world and all races of the Horde, but we can not be distracted, our missions here are important, so we move on to the main building where Vol'jin and Thrall (Leader of the Horde) reside.
We walk further into the city and find it right next to the armor of the demon Mannoroth, a pit lord that used to hold the chains of the entire orc race as slaves. We were freed by the redemption of Grommash Hellscream, his sacrifice allowed the Horde to become what it is today. His story can be played in Warcraft 3, I fully recommend it (Not the remake though, please play the old game).
As we enter the keep, the first thing to notice is that its absolutely full of Kor'kron vanguards, the most elite soldiers the Horde has to offer. I feel a bit intimidated, but I am a messenger with important documents to deliver, so we press on.
We give Vol'jin the admiral's orders. Now the leaders must meet and come to a conclusion of what must be done. Now we excuse ourselves and go meet with the hunter pet trainer.
He teaches us a variety of very useful skills to take care of our most precious companion. Also, after a close inspection we learn ChonkyBoi has a balanced diet of Meat, Fish, Cheese, Bread, Fungus and Fruit. If we do not feed him often, his happiness will fall and He may eventually flee, which will never happen because we love ChonkyBoi and will take care of him.
That's how we will end the day. Hopefully you will tag along for the next episode of "From Rags to Riches - A Classic Adventure"!
Thanks for reading, my name is Krommus and I'll see you folks next time.
