I just have this feeling that somewhere, Jong’s ears are burning.
But the person that thought that hiding Alchemy basic progression behind an OPTIONAL boss should be punished by never being able to complete anything that isn’t locked behind LF* on the worst servers of all time.
I will settle for that person’s liver, in a jar.
I thought that WoW professions had hit a new low in Draenor. Somebody at Blizzard must have noticed and said “Challenge accepted”, because this expansion has topped the previous in every way when it comes to making professions suck, with one minor exception – that being, you can wear more than three crafted items at once.
Nevertheless, even the most basic of Alchemy recipes beyond the Alchemy 101 spells you get as a result of setting foot in Dalaran are locked behind an optional boss, Grimoira. From my experience, the only way to down this boss is to be an asshole and start the fight even if your LFD group has moved on. And hope you don’t get kicked.
SRS … if anyone needs this boss and needs a DPS contributor, please LMK. I’ll group with Atilla the Hun at this point.
The gentleman in the middle is the innkeeper in Jandvik, which is in Suramar, of all places. When you engage him to purchase items, he greets you with such cheerful epithets as “I spit on you!” or “Sniveling pig!”. And when you’re done, he send you on your way with a jaunty “And don’t come back!” or a simple “Begone!”
I’m sure this is considered the pinnacle of manners in Valarjar society.
