Did lots of quests last week with Fulmena. It's been nice doing the quests with someone else, that's where a mage really excels. I don't really get hurt, but I'm responsible for keeping my partner healthy. I'm still a little rusty at multi-tasking, but I'm working on it. Have leveled a couple of times and I'm itching to get out of this village and back into a city to find a mage trainer. BUT I can't remember which boat I should take to Darnassus or back to the other continent where I started. Wait, I actually can't really get back there without some guidance or higher level protections. But I do need to get to Darnassus. I suppose I can research that. I seem to remember there are signs on the dock, but I might be imagining that. I killed some Threshers the other day and got me some more coinage. I need to collect some more herbs from an earlier level, I started to get bored picking the same ones, but now I don' t have enough experience to collect the more interesting ones. Grr.
I may not get to quest some more tonight, apparently there are other pressing matters related to alchemy that I must sit and study here at the Inn... [Out of game that means I have chemistry homework to do.... ::sigh::].
I think I must feel like it's a he, since I just unconsciously referred to it as such. I think I might name him Mikky or Mackey? Maybe Mackey, after Mack the Knife, from the Frank Sinatra song, "Mackey's back in town". Yes, that's it. "Mackey, the mechanical squirrel", Jwlls' pet.

So, this weekend I only gained 1 level, which was fine. I hunted some beasts, delivered some stuff. One of Fulmena's distant cousins [As in one of Gen's other characters] practiced enchantment skills and made me a wand! That was really sweet!
Dying and resurrection is an interesting experience, I have to remember to re-buff myself after I return to my body.
The best part was after leveling, I took some time to go learn me some herbalism and alchemy. This meant going into the great Dwarf/Gnome city Ironforge! From Ironforge I took the tram to Stormwind (?), and then took a Gryphon back to Ironforge.
I think I liked Stormwind better, but Ironforge was pretty dramatic and big. I nearly walked over an edge and into a molten pool of something, but stopped myself just in time. I looked at some of the historical stuff in the museum in the Hall of Explorers. Strange creatures abound and have been in abundance in our land. I'm kind of glad some of them don't anymore. There seem to be plenty of evil creatures I can't even begin to imagine still alive and fighting.
I wonder what I shall do next. I'm anxious to go pull flowers and get on with this leveling process. I still need to work on my skillz though, I wonder what I could practice wand skills on without getting dead too quick.
The last thing I did in Ironforge was get a picture near the molten gold fall...

I've discovered that where there are many evil creatures, they're probably guarding stolen loot like Felix's stuff or a treasure chest or something of that nature. It's kind of been a whirlwind of absorbing information like location names and creature specifications. I can't say I've been doing a very good job if it, so forgive me if I don't get them exactly right. Like the difference between a Burly Rock Trogg and a mere Rock Trogg. And the Trollwhelps... they were annoying and fierce.
I've had help though, and I'm grateful for it. The lovely Tarma accompanied me through the tunnel leading from my starting point in Coolridge Valley to Khoulanos, but she departed swiftly after I saluted her for her trouble. Fulmena met me in Khoulanos and offered to group with me. We went off to visit the Inn (a name I should become familiar with since it's my home for now), and I met my Mage Trainer and learned Cooking skills. We picked up a quest killing boars and bears and even took down a cave of Yeti/Wendens(?).
So I've learned that attacking with the frostbolt will slow the target down and then a few well placed fireballs will help destroy it. Mages are apparently meant to attack from the background while the stronger more powerful classes attack up front. I'm still really awkward even in that, getting distracted by the shiny while I shoud probably be helping attack the next evil creature. But, we got us a treasure chest and a completed a quest. She got more experience than I did, but I still squeaked by into level 6.
After the obtaining the shiny, we found ourselves a place to rest, all tuckered out.
