My name is Stan, I am 19 years old. Currently I am studying at a University. I am the founder of the FB group which posted Cataclysm news since 8/23/09. I am playing WoW since the release of Burning Crusade. I like writing articles regarding Cataclysm. The most time I enjoyed playing was high-end TBC - Sunwell Plateau.

With the imminent approach of The Shattering (only a week or two) which brings a totally new leveling experience from level one through sixty, many quests have been removed and replaced with newer, interesting ones and all of the zones now have less quests, but definitely better! A questline which really can't remain unnoticed is the one in Westfall (lucky alliance).

Lieutenant Horatio Laine has made its arrival in World of Warcraft in the famous C.S.I. Westfall quest series.

As soon as you enter Westfall you will notice that Furlbrow, his wife and Old Blanchy are missing. Then you find out that the cart they were standing in front of is right in your way. Behind the kart, you find Lieutenant Horatio Laine with two Investigators examining the corpes.

Horatio Interesting Dialogue

You really have to laugh at the reference. It perfectly fits Horatio's character ! Even the speech, Blizzard outdid themselves this time. Anyways, Horatio Laine finds out these people were killed.  You are then sent to Janesen Stead to investigate the murder. There are many homeless people walking around, from whom you need to gather information. You've got two options by either, giving them 2 pieces of copper, or you can ask them directly to provide you with some clues without paying, but there is a high chance of being attacked by them. According to clues received, you're then sent to investigate the Murlocs and Gnolls. Murlocs drop a letter with missing words and gnolls drop a torn piece of red cloth.

Laine tells you that your clues are meaningless and offers you a new quest. (What a great investigator that is).

You are then sent to two-shoed Lou, who is Horatio's informant.

He hands you a crate which was formerly a house (/laugh) and orders you to go to the Jangolode Mine where you hide inside the crate and witness a dialogue between a female shadow-figure and an ogre. The ogre threatens to kill her, but she offers him wealth and power as long as he joins her forces. The ogre agrees on the 'option number two'. The female shadow figure then says, she'll call him when the dawning is upon them.
