I have been randomly checking out Dalaran for the lost mail envelope. Not with any great amount of seriousness but just incase. I actually found it last night!
It is a little bit of fun, and on the plus side if you get the first achievement completed you get another lost mail item to send to someone.
So you receive a quest to start you off:
You go and check out Madam Goya and some poor orcs life is spared as you turn up just in time for him to have paid off his debt to her.
The post master summons you after that to a pipe near the pet cemetery and you drop into an awesome looking room. My new favourite location honestly.
It is such a cool room, floating mail and little elementals etc. I adore everything about this room. The post master sends you on a couple of missions, one carrying some heavy stones which is in relation to a story about someone who sent bricks through the postal service as it was the cheapest method of delivery. You can read about it here.
Once you complete that he sends you to ICC to collect Invincible Reins and then find Johnny Awesome who is relaxing by some hot springs.
This is where the fun starts for me, you are supposed to deal with a goblin. Except. The Goblins hate me. Mostly all of them. I blame my Bloodsail Admiral title of course.
Of course it took me forever to realise the goblin wouldn’t talk to me, until Drew eventually notices a comment about reputation. So I had to go to Tanaris and kill mobs for 5 rep per kill until I reached neutral with Gadgetzan. Thankfully I had started working on my rep a few xpacs ago so it only took about 20 minutes with the super fast spawn rate of the pirates now.
After sorting 30 envelopes in under 1 minute you also get an achievement Post Haste. A name of a place pops up on screen and you have to select the correct mail tube for it to be sent into. It is harder than is sounds. Ultimately Drew completed this before me, after calling me a WoW nerd and saying I would be able to ace it. I did then complete it after him so I don’t feel quite so guilty.
Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, Northrend, Pandaria, Broken Isles is the order of the tubes above. To get the Postmaster title you have to do it with only partial names. So as an example Brill, Tirisfal Glades pops up and you select the Eastern Kindgom tube. In the Postmaster achievement you would only get Brill pop up. Tis ok for somewhere like Brill but when it gives you a random city from one of the xpacs it is so much harder.
I am not there yet…but I am going to keep going.
