This past weekend I got to log in to Winterhoof and play Khiaren for longer than it takes to go to Darkmoon Faire and do their quests. For all the little bit I’ve done on Zarigar, it was kind of sad to see that I had done even less on Khiaren.
She was 90 and had done some heroics, but that was about it. She didn’t even have the minimum level to get into LFR. Even though I knew she hadn’t done a whole lot, I still kept assuming she had, then got all sad when reality hit.
For example, I sent her out to Dread Wastes to do some Klaxxi quests for some quick rep. Only I get there and see there is 1 whole daily available to her. Oh yeah, she’s still going out and waking them up. Gah!
New plan, let’s go do those “new” dailies that came out with the last patch. Apparently it’s a nice storyline, and I may keep up on it just to see it. For now, though, all she can do is a couple of quests then..”thanks, lady, come see us again tomorrow.”
So my new, new plan was to get Khiaren LFR ready. She was actually only a couple of points off so in theory it should have been easy. One random Stormstout Brewery yielded nothing. So I decided to queue for Gate of the Setting Sun. If you have a shammy to gear up this is the instance for you; potential loot includes: a mace, a shield, a ring and a trinket.
Too bad none of those dropped when I ran it. However, since this was an abandoned toon it turns out Khiaren had never ran if before and could do the quests in there. One of the rewards was a new cloak to replace the GREEN one she was still sporting. That, combined with an upgrade of her alchemist’s trinket, got her right to the minimum.
I was originally going to wait to turn in my Lesser Charms but I was curious to run her through an LFR so I just queued right up. Ahh, that’s the LFR I remember. People stomping through the content. Me not anywhere near the bottom even with my cobbled together gear. No loot for me.
Good times, good times.
Here is Khiaren now. I don’t normally keep the helm shown on her but I had to show off the ridiculousness of this outfit:
This is just so awful. So matchy and looking like she stole it from Cost Plus World Market. It’s not Outland bad, but it is its own special brand of awful. (I’m not sure why she’s even wearing that tabard; apparently I enjoy having awful looking toons.)
And yet I know I will save this gear in void storage for future mogging…
