In episode nine of Warcraft Less Traveled, Skolnick explained how to get to the Arathi Dwarven Farm. This was a location that I did manage to get to before Cataclysm, but, I seem to have lost my screenshots from my original trip. You will just have to take my word for it.
The screenshots you see in this blog were from my second trip to the Arathi Dwarven Farm. They were taken on January 13, 2012.
At the time that episode nine of Warcraft Less Traveled was recorded, there was a quest chain that started with a letter. The letter was held in the hand of an unfortunate Dwarf whose body could be found underwater, trapped beneath some of the rubble from the bridge.
Hansbrix and I managed to find Sully Ballo. Unfortunately, he no longer holds the letter that starts you on a series of quests.
The Arathi Dwarven Farm survived the Cataclysm. Hansbrix and I found it by flying along the coastline. This was much easier than having to swim there!
Murkablo is considering engaging in arson.
A Dwarven Farmer walks around his farm.
The Farmer’s house is still here.
Here is a view of the inside of the house. I think I remember there being a sleeping Dwarf on this bed before Cataclysm. Maybe I’m wrong about that. In any case, there is no one sleeping here now.
Hansbrix and I sat down at the table for some refreshment. We keep telling Fridge that he is too big to be a “lap bear”, but he doesn’t agree.
The “slightly risqué” painting is still here. It looks to me like a barely dressed human female, not unlike the ones you may find dancing on a mailbox in Goldshire.
It seems that the Farmer’s house lacks indoor plumbing.
Not far from the house, there is a stable.
Inside are a couple of rams, and a large rodent.
There is a dock here, but there aren’t any boats.
It seemed to me that there were a lot of cats here the last time I visited. This time, we only found one cat, sitting on the dock.
The only other critter here was a Hare, bouncing through one of the Farmer’s fields.
Not much else to see. Oh, except the ever present Dwarven still.
