I have never been to Ironforge, since I'm horde, and I was wondering if someone could perhaps give me a few pointers on good locations to try to catch Mr Ironjaw in.
Any tips/pointers appreciated!
As a rogue, it's rather easy to sneak into Ironforge so can't really give you any other advice than bring greater invisibility potions :)
Realize, however, that as soon as you enter IF, you'll be flagged for PvP. Even if you're playing on a PvE server, meaning that guards will attack you and Allies can attack you if they so wish.
Regarding places to fish the only two I know of are:
The pool in the Mystic Ward
The Forlorn Caverns.
You probably don't want to fish the Mystic Ward as that is a highly trafficed area, where as the most people that come through The Forlorn Caverns are people doing their Ram Racing. Now in the Forlorn Caverns, the water is not very deep until a fair bit out, so what I did was to hug the right wall, go out until just before I started swimming and do /sleep resulting in you being underwater without actually getting the breath bar. It'll look something like this when you fish:
Of course your name will be glaring red and sticking out like a sore thumb, but most don't see it, don't care or believe you're a corpse.
What to do when you *do* get spotted then? I took the Ghandi approach. Seeing as I was very lucky getting Old Crafty in Orgrimmar, I figured that I'd prolly spend a lot of time in IF fishing for the ally equivalent. Therefore I'd rather not bring down the whole wrath of IF by killing peeps to the left and right. I was there for approx 1000 throws and got ganked a total of 8 times, where 3 of them was by pesky, badly geared combat rogue at the very end at 2 am in the morning. The rest of the allies just killled me once and moved on. Fair game. I didn't fight back as I didn't want it to turn into a fun thing to do for them.
There was however a lvl 13 dwarf hunter who kept attacking me, and I killed his pet numerous times. And the lvl 16 lock who pretty much pooed her pants when she smacked me with her mace and realized she PvP enabled :) Fun stuff.
Anyway, hope this comment helps you Foffa and good anglin' to ya :)
