Warcraft Less Traveled #81 – Lon’li Guju

Posted in Podcast Episodes on March 14th, 2014 by Skolnick

Episode #81: While exploring the northern coastlines of the Kun-Lai Summit zone, explorers should look skyward to catch sight of a wandering NPC named Lon’li Guju. This level 88, flying giant sea tortoise is friendly to both factions. The angelic-winged Lon’li Guju is a special in-game memorial to Lonesome George, the last of his subspecies of tortoise. Although Lonesome George died on June 24, 2012; he now lives on forever in Pandaria. All players who befriend Lon’li Guju by issuing a affectionate emote (/love /wave /hug) will trigger a secret event to occur… because of the player’s show of kindness, this solitary tortoise will follow the player throughout Pandaria for a short while. A memorial like Lon’li Guju not only brings a warm smile to any lost adventurer, but he also stands as a noble reminder of the wise quote: “the way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost”.

Warcraft Less Traveled #46 – Hideout of Hermit Ortell

Posted in Podcast Episodes on April 26th, 2011 by Skolnick

Episode #46 Timecapsule: Named after Hermit Ortell, the secret mountain cave in eastern Dun Morogh was once titled Ortell’s Hideout. Not to be confused with WoW’s original “Ortell’s Hideout” cave found in Silithus, this mysterious Dun Morogh location was seen by very few players before the Cataclysm. Since the Shattering, the cave still exists in game – at coordinates 95,42 – but has been renamed “The Mountain Den”. Not only was this destination a difficult place for explorers to find before flying mounts, but entering Ortell’s Hideout in Dun Morogh used to automatically ‘zone’ you into the general chat channel of Silithus… strange magic indeed…
