Warcraft Less Traveled #43 – Secrets of Old Ironforge – Part 2

Posted in Podcast Episodes on March 29th, 2011 by Skolnick

Episode #43 Timecapsule: A journey into the original Old Ironforge subzone is an unforgettable experience. The large, circular cavern contains a majestic, purple-jeweled ceiling… its crystals glowing and pulsing from an unknown source. Beautifully carved stone bridges and natural gray pathways span the lava-filled cave floor. A high platform in the center of the Old Ironforge cavern stands empty and forgotten, however its ornate decorations hint that it may have been originally designed for a more important purpose. This second look into Old Ironforge describes what interesting features existed deep under Ironforge City, before Patch 4.1 removes these ‘vanilla world’ secrets forever.

Warcraft Less Traveled #41 – Key to the Searing Gorge

Posted in Podcast Episodes on March 15th, 2011 by Skolnick

Episode #41 Timecapsule: In the earliest days of WoW, a fiery NPC named Mountaineer Pebblebitty @(18,84) used to start explorers down the road to discovering a prized shortcut through the southern Loch Modan mountains. This long forgotten quest chain allowed explorers the chance to battle an elite thunder lizard named Margol the Rager. Only after this classic quest-line was complete were you respected enough by Pebblebitty to earn a special Key to the Searing Gorge. The unique key not only unlocked the gated passageway between Loch Modan and the Searing Gorge, but having it in your possession meant that you faced the the ‘challenging’ personality of Pebblebitty… and won.
