The Battered Hilt quest line is another of those epic quest lines you need to do. Even when the item is no longer useful I highly recommend doing the quest if you get the hilt to drop.
Of course you will run into players who just don't get it.
When it came time to go into Halls of Reflection for the last part of the quest line, I saw just how immature some players in WoW can be. After entering the instance I announced I needed to fight the sword. Three of the party congratulated me, but one of them, the tank, pitched a fit.
He cried out "You suck," and "You don't deserve it!" He then went into the corner, sat down and sulked while the four of us battled the sword.
Needless to say the immaturity didn't sit well and the group booted him pretty quick.
My experience in WoW has been almost entirely positive, but there are players of all ages and maturity levels, so I guess you can expect this at times.
Last night I started the Battered Hilt quest line. I love epic quests, as I've said before the Onyxia attunement was my all time favorite favorite quest.
I don't think this is going to equal the Onyxia quest but it is steeped in lore, and it is fun.
You start just below the tournament grounds at Quel'Delar's rest and you'll be back here a lot, so before you start the random dungeons to complete the Icecrown portion of this quest line you might want to park here, It'll save you some time.
Welcome to what is essentially a digital diary of my days in WoW, going all the way back to the first week I started playing.
My main is Keilakat on the Bladefist server. I have a bunch of alts, but they are currently on extended vacation.
I tend to write from the point of view of an Azeroth tourist, so if you're looking for hardcore tips, you are probably in the wrong place.
