I've leveled a lot of characters to eighty five during Cataclysm and one thing they all have in common is Marion Wormwing.
Every single one of my characters has quested their way though Mount Hyjal and every single one of them has chosen to kill Marion Wormwing rather than letting her go.
|Die, you foul bitch.|
Some of my worst memories in WoW are down to Harpies.
The first real character I leveled was my Warrior, being a Night Elf she spent most of her earlier time in Kalimdor. Thankfully this meant that she wasn't subjected to murlocs' instead she had to face harpies! Just outside of Darnassus is a small area called The Oracle Glade which is where I first met what are now my most loathed mobs in the game. By level 10 I had encountered more of these harpies than I could ever hope to imagine. They roamed around in packs, fleeing when low on health to pull some friends. I died, I died over and over again.
|Harpies broke my armour D:|
The Charred Vale is a very different place now from what it was. The Shattering brought with it a volcano eruption which has wiped out the resident harpies. The zone is now occupied by black dragon whelps and black drakes instead.
