Requires flying?: No.

Requires a faction?: Yes - only Alliance players can get here.

Requires summoning for lower levels?: No.

Affected by phasing/requires quests?: No.

Nearby NPCs: A friendly Darnassus Sentinel patrols up and down one side.

Coordinates: 77, 46

We never said we were particularly creative, sorry.

That sure is a follower count! (I’m a little late, I know, we hit 100 last night.)
Thanks to everyone who’s been with us from the beginning, and for sticking with us through Really Bad Scheduling. Raisheal and I both appreciate the support.
Since there are so dang many of you (and so few posts in proportion), are there any zones or locations you’d like to see, or see more of? And, since it’s our first 100 followers, anything special you think we ought to do?
