Silithus Sucks

GavSilithusIn over  500 hours of playing Gavelier, I’ve spent maybe 30 minutes in Silithus, and for good reason. There’s nothing there for me. It’s a dead, barren land with tons of bugs, nothing exciting to do, lots of bugs, only one place to stop (the Cenarion Hold), and nothing I want. Did I mention there’s a whole slew of bugs? Yeah. So why go there? I got to level 80 without it, so I figured Gav would never see it again.

Never say never, Gavelier.

I’m making a concerted effort to level up my cooking, and when I hit 285 or so last night, I looked to to see what to learn to cook next. The answer? Smoked Desert Dumplings, and both the recipe and the ingredients are only available in Silithus. So, I fired up my Gadgetzan Transporter to get to Tanaris and took a flight from there to the Cenarion Hold. I must say that this place hasn’t improved much in the 30+ levels since I last saw it, with the only perk being that nothing would attack me. It took me over an hour to get the recipe, find and kill enough Dredge Stikers and Crushers to get the needed 10 pieces of Sandworm Meat and complete the follow-up quest. While there, I rode through and explored the entire zone with the expressed purpose of never having to come back here again.

You may notice in the pic that my goggles have changed colors. That’s just because the blue light bulb died in my Furious Gizmatic Goggles and a yellow bulb was cheaper.

Ok, that’s a lie. I finally leveled up my engineering skill enough to make myself some Charged Titanium Specs. Yay! I’m currently at 446 in Engineering, so I’ve nearly maxed it out. I hope to make myself a Mekgineer’s Chopper once I hit 450. Of course, that requires me to reach Exalted with the Alliance Vangard, and so far I’m just Honored. Dammit.
