Ferrekessa – a Night Elf Rogue (subtlety) Pacifist, just hit max level after playing 22 days. Born in April of 2018, took 315 days to reach Max Level. Her path to 120 had four main sections as seen below:

Level 10 – 62

Herbalism and Mining, with some exploration: starter zones, Darkshore, Zoram Strand in Ashenvale (a long time there), and Dreamer’s Rest in Feralas (for a long time). Holidays. Very minimal archaeology (safe sites only).

Level 62 – 90

Added archaeology, picking lower density sites at first. Herb/mining/chest hunting, mostly in Northrend and Pandaria.

Level 90 – 110

Archaeology (mainly on Azeroth), mining/herbing in Pandaria and Cataclysm zones (specifically Uldum). Much fishing, especially in Tol Barad. Stockpiled materials for leveling alchemy.

Level 110 – 120

Archaeology. Dropped mining, picked up alchemy (Cataclysm & Pandaria levels plus old world alchemy up to 75 to get the Darkmoon Faire quest).

Darkmoon Faire

On this pacifist, she followed Fiveiron’s “DMF Super-Paci” profession swapping during the last Darkmoon Faire before dropping mining. During that Darkmoon Faire, she did the monthly quests for Herbalism, Mining, Tailoring, Blacksmithing, Engineering, Inscription, Alchemy, and Archaeology.

A Stroke of Luck

She had a bit of unbelievably good luck when one of the “Canopic Jars”, from Uldum archeology, contained the very rare recipe for the Vial of the Sands. She had kept them in the bank, unopened until she had leveled Cataclysm alchemy. She had farmed (or purchased) the fairly extensive list of mats for that recipe and did make the Sandstone Drake mount!

Worries, Concerns and a Near Death

Major worries were Blizzard-related issues like disconnects and avoiding a short list of dig sites that she considered too risky. She had one very close call at a site in Eastern Plaguelands, Zul’Mashar specifically, the first time she went there: She didn’t realize that the burial mounds on the ground would spawn a LOT of trolls if you step on them. She had thought it was over, surrounded by all those trolls, but thankfully vanish let her get away to a safe spot.

Ferre didn’t do archaeology in any zones beyond Cataclysm as she was worried about a) possible spawns and b) the possibility of shared proximity kills. She did tend to do most of her activity out in the world during night time hours.

Ferre compiled a google doc spreadsheet of dig site information. Please note that it is NOT complete – started it when she was in her mid-90s, and will be adding to it. Also, note that is just Ferre’s impressions of difficulty, mainly from the viewpoint of a stealth class.

This week we are joined by the most amazing person in the world: BoomBoomie. He’s so great that a single Boom doesn’t sum up what he has to offer.

Reminder: We no longer have a “CLEAN” tag.

Love is in the Air has started and will run from February 12 through to February 26. Below you’ll find what’s allowed and what’s not for your Challengers. For a complete overview of the event please see the WoWHead.com Love is in the Air Guide.

Quests: All quests are okay to do providing they fall within the parameters of your challenge.
Blood Thirsty (Solo & Teams): Move along, nothing to see here for you. This event revolves around questing and you are not allowed to do that.
Pacifists: Please be aware some of the event’s quests involve killing mobs. You will not be able to do all of the quests. When in doubt, scout it out. 

Lovely Cards: NOT ALLOWED 
The Lovely Cards (example: Lovely Undercity Card) are NOT ALLOWED as they provide stat buffs for your character.
Tin Man: You are allowed to use these as Tin challengers can have buffs.

Love Tokens: These can be spent on a number of items, however, please keep in mind that the Box of Chocolates and anything that is a Cologne or Perfume are NOT ALLOWED as they provide you buffs.
Tin Man: You are the exception once again as your challenge allows buffs.

Dresses & Suits: There are white/common-quality dresses and suits that can be equipped, so these are fair game for your Challengers. That being said, please be mindful of the quality of the item you are equipping. There may be green quality versions of these items in the game as well. Equipping those will get you flagged.
Blood Thirsty Solo: If you somehow come across a green event item, you may equip it since green quality gear is allowed for you.
Green Man: Should you come across any green quality event items you may equip them, your challenge allows green quality gear. 

Apothecary Hummel: NOT ALLOWED
This NPC is located in a dungeon and is NOT ALLOWED for solo challengers. 
Iron Teams: If you are a full team of 5 your team may queue for this dungeon.
Blood Thirsty Teams: If you are a full team of 5 your team may queue for this dungeon, however, you are not allowed to complete any quests in the dungeon.

Collecting Charms: You’re allowed to collect charms for achievements, pets, mounts, and items if you want.
Blood Thirsty Solo & Teams: While you can collect the Lovely Charms, you’ll need to complete a quest to turn them in. Since you cannot complete these quests it’s back to the blood-soaked fields with you.
Pacifists: You cannot acquire these as the Lovely Charms require you to land the killing blow to in order to receive the charm.

It is the Year of the Pig! The Lunar Festival runs from January 28th through February 11th. This year’s update brought seven new toys to the event! Please see the WoWHead.com Lunar Festival Guide for a complete overview of the event.

Honouring Elders
With the exception of  Blood Thirsty, all challengers can go honour Elders and take advantage of the free Experience Points they’ll give you. Honouring an Elder will give you a Lucky Red Envelope and a Coin of Ancestry. Due to the phasing that was added to several zones in recent expansions, you may need to talk to Zidormi to return the zone to how it used to be. The zones you may need to do this for are Undercity, Tirisfal Glades, Blasted Lands, Darkshore, Darnassus, Teldrassil, and Silithus.

 Blood Thirsty: These quests will count against your quests completed totals.

Pacifists: These quests are a great way to start a new Pacifist challenger, especially now that you need to be level five to learn your professions.

Lunar Fortune Buff
In each of the envelopes, you will receive either a Lucky Rocket Cluster or an Elder’s Moonstone. Setting off the Lucky Rocket Cluster from a cluster launcher will give you the Lunar Fortune buff… this gives you +250 health and is NOT ALLOWED.

Quests
All quests are allowed for all Challenges except  Blood Thirsty, even the quest that requires you to defeat Omen, although I’m not quite sure I’d recommend trying it… if you die, that’s it.

Coin of Ancestry Redemption
You can turn in your Coins of Ancestry for pets, toys, food, fireworks, and clothes.

Food
Festival Dumplings are ALLOWED. Good health/mana regeneration. Stock up on these.

Cosmetic
Festival DressesSuits & Crowns: NOT ALLOWED. These are all green-quality items and will flag your character.

 Blood Thirsty: You are ALLOWED to equip these since you can equip green gear.
 Green Man: All green event items ALLOWED for you.

Schematics & Patterns
Allowed for Pacifists only. You can buy these from Fariel Starsong to craft cluster & firework launchers as well as festival dresses and suits. Professions are NOT ALLOWED for all other challengers.
