'twas the night after Winter's Veil, and all through the realm, not a druid was stirring…
Yes, it's BlogAzeroth Secret Santa time again, and this year, my secret santa is Lady Erinia of Moments in the Life of a Death Knight, who brings me a gaily-wrapped post, possibly inspired by one of Aqua's earliest hits:
Sit back,and enjoy:
Dr Jones, Dr Jones!
If you have ever done the level 70 10-man instance Zul’Aman located in the Ghostlands, odds are you have met Harrison Jones. Dr. Jones is a lovable rascal that is modeled after a certain adventure series that contain archaeology bits and Nazis. ￼
Harrison Jones has certainly been around the block a few times in WoW. He always seems to want to, um, “explore” some type of ruins and “discover” and “protect” some treasure. Well, it’s better him than some goblin like Schnottz right? ￼
After supposedly perishing in Zul’Aman, he popped up again Northrend in the Drakil'jin Ruins for some more…treasure hunting. With the addition of the archaeology profession in Cataclysm, Dr. Jones decided to don his professorship hat and train some would-be adventures in the new profession, but only if said adventures are members of the Alliance.
All hope is not lost though. If you are Horde, you still get to do the wickedly fun Harrison Jones questline in Uldum which is modeled after a certain Indiana Jones movie. ￼
I highly recommend doing the Harrison Jones quests at once when you have time because there are cut-scenes and references galore. You might even get to star in some of the cut-scenes! You’ll get to witness Dr. Jones using his whip to swing around and destroy precious statues, participate in a dogfight (an airplane fight, not a canine fight), and save the Ark of the Cov….I mean the Coffer of Promise from the Naz..errr…Commander Schnottz and Deathwing’s minions.
Long story short, if you are an Indiana Jones fan, then this questline is for you! Who knows? In a thousand years, even you might be worth something! I had a great time doing the quest line and I cannot wait to do it again with my next toon.
