As we all know, we are the proud owners of the most awesome mount in the game, the Dreadsteed. So, please post your love about the Felsteed/Dreadsteed.
Also, the Dreadsteed of Xoroth questline was one of the most fun quests in the game, because of the story behind it, so i advice everyone to do it! (if they still can, because i heard something about class quests being removed.)
Please don't flame me or anyone in this thread :)
P.S.: You're probably thinking like; "Why is this Warlock acting so friendly and nice?! This is not how Warlocks are supposed to behave!! BAD WARLOCK!!" Well i use this technique as a disguise to distract my enemies. I hope this has cleared some confusion!
For the Dreadsteeds!
Personally, I didn't do the questline (was halfway through it) and was hugely dissapointed when realized it was removed. GM confirmed it to me.
Well, I guess that's a warning and a good lesson to me for slacking - rerolled lock last year and didn't bother doing the questline because I though I had plenty of time...
It is indeed very cool, although at the time, I couldn't get over how damn expensive the materials needed to complete it were.
Blizzard should never have changed it except to make the quest scale with the level cap. An awesome mount like that needed to be earned and still should be.
"DONT REPORT ANYTHING. I might get in trouble"
The Doomgaurd quest was also brilliant, I remember soloing all of it (even DM) apart from the final doomgaurd you need to enslave.
Before any expansions were released Warlocks were Blizzards little child. Even the Felwood questline where you would get the only scythe weapon in game at the time was very fun. Especially at the end when you had to fight the Chicken of Doom :P
I used my dreadsteed from then till now, only in BG's I'd use a regular mount due to the risk of getting locked out of shadow while mounting up. I gotta admit though I'm starting to look at different mounts now, but alas and alack that stupid horseman mount still eludes me for 2 years running now.
I still prefer the felsteed art and would use that instead if blizzard ever decides to let us upgrade our ground speed like we upgrade our air speed now, but eh.
They've done exactly that - if you've got the Journeyman Riding skill, all your land mounts will move at 100%
Dreadsteed stopped being cool when it became virtually free(TBC+).
That's right, Felsteed.
It's just so elegant.
I did the feat on my 60 lock, one of the best quest chains I've ever had the pleasure to be in. The final battle remains one of my favourites.
Very sad to see it go.
Also, unfortunately, and I tried, even if one had the items and the quest; in order to recover a node during the final summon, you'd need a soul shard as reagent. An actual soul shard :P
