Party next week!

Reinisch will easily get within level 80 this week, so I'm planning on dinging 80 on Saturday, Sept. 5, at 1 PM server time TIME CHANGED to Friday, Sept. 4 at 6 PM server time (server is US Pacific timezone). I'll do it by turning in a Dalaran fishing quest.

Anyone can make a level 1 character on The Venture Co server, and get to Dalaran unaided; here's how:

1) Go to Stormwind or Orgrimmar
2) Die
3) As a ghost, go to Borean Tundra by boat or zeppelin
4) Still as a ghost, run to Sholazar Basin and run up the avalanche
5) When you get to Icecrown, you will get a flying spectral mount
6) Fly up high towards Dalaran above Crystalsong Forest
7) As you enter the Crystalsong Forest zone, you will lose your mount, but if you are up high enough, you will land in Dalaran
8) Resurrect in the graveyard near the Violet Citadel
9) If you "miss" and end up on the ground, run back to the dam at the Decrepit Flow area and you should get another spectral flying mount.

However, you can also ask Pipkin (Alliance mage) for a portal, if he's on. He should be around just before the party starts. Reinisch can also try and buy a portal for last-minute arrivals, but that's a bit chancier.

Hey congrats, man! Oh, and just fyi, I mentioned (and linked) you in my last blog.

Anyways, just wanted to give your props for the accomplishment (albeit a bit prematurely).

Congrats times two. I'll try to be there this time. I'm sorry I missed ol' Noor's ding.

How exactly does one die in a capital city? o_O

@Paul

Ragefire Chasm or Stockades would work :)

@Paul

I'm sure you could find something tall to jump off of in Orgrimmar that would do the trick at level 1.

Stormwind? Drown yourself in the canals. (You might be able to do it in Org as well; I can't remember if there is a deep enough pool to do so.)

That's gonna be a pretty awesome thing to ding 80 with no kills GRATZ!

The fishing trainer in Dalaran.

Might be handy to include the time zone of the server?

But think of all those imaginary fish that had to die so that you could get good at fishing....

Awesome man, just awesome. I hope the server doesn't get too crowded tomorrow for the big event, because I've been looking forward to this for a while now!

Oops, yes, it's in the US Pacific time zone, so 6 PM on the west coast, 9 PM on the east coast. I've added that to the blog entry.

Just tried to run a lvl 1 to Dalaran and when went to rez, ended up in Farshire :( Hope it was just a glitch!

I tried to get to Dalaran too but ended up ressing at the GY closest to my body... Tried multiple different zones and GY's with no luck. So no luck at ghostrunning to Dala.
