The Adventures of Kazimierz and Saraku: Hidden Tauren House and Jumping Off Tall Things

I did have a post drafted up about hunter mods and macros, but due to a bunch of things happening, it’ll be postponed for a little while. After having two members of my guild hacked, organizing Ashen Verdict rep runs, and trying to deal with RL things like work annoyances and doing my taxes for the first time on my own, pretty much all of my free time has been dedicated to simply having fun in WoW.

So in lieu of a post that actually requires me to write, >.> I give you a long overdue and hopefully entertaining episode of The Adventures of Kazimierz and Saraku!

Hidden Tauren House

This first video is Kazi and Saraku’s visit to the little tauren camp that rests in the mountains between the Barrens and Mulgore. This place is of particular importance to me because when the wall-walking trick was still in-game, I discovered the way there all on my own when I was still a newbie (Niqora was level 40ish or something) and it was my very own secret spot. I was saddened when they removed wall-walking and thus removed my only way to get to “my” house. With the introduction of the zeppelin that travels between Thunder Bluff and Orgrimmar, I was able once again to visit my favorite spot in-game (although now it’s less special now that everyone else can too). Regardless, it was great fun to wander around it again with my adventuring partner, Kazi.

Jumping Off Tall Things

Everyone knows the Temple of Storms in Storm Peaks, right? It’s only one of the tallest things in that game that you can get to the top of. In the next two videos, Kazi and Saraku get a bunch of their friends together to participate in an activity that in character, Saraku calls “jumping off tall things”. In the first video, we slowfall/levitate all the way to the Emerald Dragonshire in Dragonblight. In the second one, we make it to Venture Bay in Grizzly Hills.

By “we”, I of course mean the people who were lucky enough to remain within casting range of the mage/priest. Poor Kazi. :(

    Ah, I remember doing those…good fun for all, although the repair bills can be pricy. ;) That little house is a wonderful spot for RP, as it's highly unlikely to have people wandering randomly around poking at things.

    I would note for the Jumping Off of Tall Things that we did recently figure out how to solve one of the problems of drifting for long distances-if you have everyone auto-follow a leader forward, then disable it and walk straight back for the lead-up, you will all be on exactly the same vector…but the poor saps with bad lag will still end up falling behind eventually.

    My recent post Tauren and blood elves and orcs, oh my!

      This is true, this video was taken way back when we tried it the first time. Perhaps the person with the worst lag should be the leader, so they will start out ahead of everyone else?
