I ♥ HOTs

Reinisch (and before him, Ahimsah) has recently done two escort quests that Noor could never do; Galen's Escape and Get me out of Here! Galen is especially hated for strolling right through the Broken Ones' village and getting attacked by, uh, hordes of attackers.

I successfully completed both quests, even though I died twice during each escort; my heals-over-time were enough to keep them alive while I ran back from the graveyard. I was also careful to pull off extra attackers at the right time by using healing aggro; Melizza from the second escort drew two patrols at the same time, with five attackers on her at one point, but I managed to heal her through it. Both quests took over half an hour each.

Mekgineer's Chopper

I managed to give a ride to a level 12 Draenai named Seliis to all the flight paths in the Eastern Kingdoms, and he only died twice -- once when he disconnected and ended up on the road alone in Arathi Highlands and I was unable to keep the spiders off of him, and once in Eastern Plaguelands when a patrol of elites from Tyr's Hand killed him before I even saw them. The only difficulty is that I can't tell if my passenger is in combat or not, so it's harder to tell if it's safe to stop.

On our way through Deadwind Pass, we drove through about 10 horde going the other way; one of them (a mage) tried to kill me, but with about 23k hitpoints and still on the move, he didn't come close.

Getting to Shaper's Terrace in Un'Goro Crater

I can't get to the quest that sends you to Shaper's Terrace, which is up above Marshal's Refuge in Un'Goro Crater, but I can get there using my parachute cloak, boots with Nitro Boosts and Rocket Boots Xtreme...

D'oh! redeaux

In getting back to Reinisch, I had to run out and make the exact same dumb mistake I made with Noor; I forgot to wield my fishing rod when running naked through dangerous areas...

In this case, Reinisch went back to Moonglade and noticed that the flight path didn't connect yet; since he's a Goblin engineer and would need to get to Everlook at some point, I decided to take off my clothes and run through the furbolg tunnel.

The same thing happened -- I tried to use my net-o-matic on a furbolg, we both got netted, and I started auto-punching him. My unarmed skill went all the way to 6 before I could wield my fishing rod!

But I promise I didn't hurt him.
