Howling Fjord at Level 75?

If you read Sunday's Weekend Warrior post, you saw that, after completing Dragonblight, I moved on to Howling Fjord instead of the normal progression to Grizzly Hills.

My original plan was to alternate characters between starting in Borean Tundra and Howling Fjord. This was to keep things fresh and avoid the alt burnout I felt the third, fourth and even FIFTH time through Hellfire Peninsula. However, one night I followed a link to a post... to another post... to WowHead... to a search... to a nifty bonus.

At 420 Tailoring skill, Charles Worth, the Tailoring Trainer in Dalaran, says he has a special recipe to teach Loremasters. This special recipe is the Deathchill Cloak.

This does not require the TITLE Loremaster from the Loremaster Meta-Achievement, but rather the very attainable Loremaster of Northrend Achievement.

As such, I decided to head to Howling Fjord now for I've Toured the Fjord, instead of waiting until 80 to come back. This way, I'll be able to earn more cash from higher-level quests at 80. I won't be COMPLETING the Fjord, but rather completing enough quests to get the Achievement, then moving on to a zone more appropriate for my level. It's just not very fun smacking around level 69 enemies.

I've been considering going for Loremaster on Sam, so this is a step I would have taken sooner or later, anyway.

Charles Worth will also teach Wispcloak to Northrend Dungeonmasters, for those that enjoy running instances.

This is such a great way to level in Northrend. I didn't do it quite like this on my shaman but my mage will go to HF once I'm sick of, er, done with the Tundra.

I'm not doing it for the tailoring pattern, though. I think it will just make leveling easier since the lower level mobs are easier to deal with. I didn't have to worry so much about that because soloing as enhance is, well, godly.

Heh. I know, I can't wait to get my Shaman out there. Thanks for reading!
