Soloing: Cavern of Times, Part 1

I continued my solo runs by doing the first two Cavern of Times instances; Escape from Durnholde and Opening of the Portal. Both are very easy, which again comes not as any surprise. The Opening of the Portal is a little confusing, and two dragons actually got through to attack Mediev. Still, you can easily solo that instance without any sort of preparation.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any notable loot. At least I got to ride a dragon.

I won’t continue with the Cavern of Time instances for now; next would be the Battle for Mount Hijyal raid, and then the Old Straholme level 70 instance. Instead, I will continue with the instances in Outland – Terrokar is next, I guess.

Faction- and Server Switch

While it hurt me a little, Kitiralaysha Summernight is now a Blood Elf. She also moved to the (German) Blackhand server. The reason is simple; while I love Earthen Ring and the Pact of Wolves guild, that guild is simply not doing anything. A few members raid with Time and Tide, but there’s never anything being organized as a guild – and there are not enough people for it, either.

Mojo Madness, on the other hand, has a good chance of clearing 10-Man content, at least on non-Heroic, and some of the members are old friends of mine from Hamburg.

Kitira was the character chosen because of the needs of Mojo Madness. I’ll convert Kitira back to a Night Elf, some day, but for now she is in Blood Elf guise.

She will still kill dragons. That’s the important part.

Soloing: Zangarmarsh Dungeons

I continued my solo efforts with the next logical step: I moved on to Zangarmarsh and defeated the five-man instances there. Again, as with the Hellfire Peninsula dungeons, I expected no challenge from them and they were easy mode. There are simply no weird mechanics in these fights that could cause a problem. I didn’t get any worth-while loot either.

As a side note, you do get pretty good reputation gains from the Hard mode dungeons. I think I got 5-6k Cenarion Expedition reputation for the three dungeons together, plus maybe 20-30 Coilfang Armaments. I didn’t even do a full clear of any of these dungeons.

I’ll want all reputations maxed that I can do with reasonable effort, but the Cenarion Expedition is one of those reputations where it makes more sense than just to get the achievements; the Cenarion Expedition sells the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount to those who reach Exalted.
