Qindaar Gives Up!

Qindaar has spent almost three months in Jaggedpines and has decided to move on.  After about two months of trying to get Fiercewind to spawn he is giving up and moving on to try again some other day.  Qindaar hates that this is the last MoB he needs to complete the Hunters Quest for Jaggedpines but boredom has set in along with frustration.  It is time to move on!

Qindaar experienced this once in the Field of Bones and moved oin there as well but came back after accomplishing other tasks.  He will do the same here.

Happy Hunting!

Fiercewind, Does he Exist?

Qindaar has been hunting in Jaggedpines for two months or more now.  Trying to accomplish the hunter’s questline and have just Fiercewind to kill.  I have killed thousands of placeholders so far and cannot get him to spawn.  I hate to move on with just one MoB to get but I am tired of the same routine hour after hour, day after day.  A decision must be made, move on are live forever in Jaggedpines..
