Northrend Children’s Week Quest Line!

May 7th, 2009

NOTE: This post was written May 7, 2009, before the announcement and subsequent release of the Northrend Children’s Week Quests for patch 3.2.  This is not a guide, but my own version (and Blizzard totally stole my ideas, btw.)

… There isn’t one.

But if there was, this is how I imagine it:

It would begin with a quest from a Tuskarr in Dalaran.

Savior of the Tuskarr

“As the Kvaldir continue to plague our shores, the Tuskarr continue to suffer heavy losses.  It has left many families broken, and we have far too few to look after all the parentless children we’ve come to care for.

If you are willing to help look after just one pup during Children’s Week, your help would be greatly appreciated!

Use this whistle to summon your charge.  Take good care of him while you can!”

Use your whistle to summon your Tuskarr Orphan.

Can you imagine how cute a baby Tuskarr would look?  Golly!

You’d then be asked by your little buddy to visit a few key locations.

It’s difficult to come up with good locations when there is so much phasing in Northrend… but here’s what I’ve got.

I’m Not Afraid of Heights!

“From Moa’ki Harbor we can see a really high tower shooting up in the sky.  The Matron tells us that it’s the home of dragons!  Can you believe it?  Dragons!  I’ve always wanted to see one, and I bet you can see all of Dragonblight from up in that tower!”

Introduce your Orphan to Chromie at Wyrmrest Temple.

Chromie would call upon a dragon and let you and the orphan ride around the tower on its back.  Cool!


“They always tell us scary stories about the Gorlocs in Borean Tundra… but I’ve also heard they have cousins called Murlocs.  Someone from the D.E.H.T.A. came to Unu’pe one day and told us they were going to the Northwestern Coast to try to make friends with them.  Do you think they did it?”

Visit King Mrgl-Mrgl at Winterfin Retreat with your Orphan.

The Orphan would have to make friends with a little Murloc Tadpole so we can all overdose on cute, I think.

Baby, it’s Cold Outside!

“I’ve heard of a paradise – a warm, colourful place where the rivers run freely, the flowers grow all year round and you don’t even need to wear furs!  But how could such a place exist so close to all this ice and snow?  It must be some sort of magic.”

Ask the Avatar of Freya to explain the secrets of Sholazar Basin to your Orphan.

This could be a good opportunity to get into some more lore about why and how Sholazar came to exist, and the dangers the Scourge are posing to the area.

Return to the Orphanage

“Murlocs, Dragons, Giants… it’s been such a great day!  I can’t wait til I get back so I can tell the other kids all about it.”

Return your Orphan to the Orphan Master in Dalaran.

Reward Pets

Now here’s the tough part.  What pets could you get from this quest line?  There weren’t that many new animals introduced in Wrath, and they weren’t very cute, to be honest.


Shoveltusk Calf: You could certainly cutify these guys. If you and someone else had two calves out, they would butt each other with their horns, like they do in the wild! Cute!


Baby Seal: After all that mating work we did in Dragonblight, certainly they can spare a baby for you! And there would finally be a good use for that baby seal icon.


Rhino Calf: This is the only thing I could think of for a third. It's pretty similar to the Shoveltusk, but it was either a Rhino or a Jormunger!

So there you have it, my rendition of the Northrend version of Children’s Week.  Got any other ideas?

  1. Oh – I like it. How do I get Blizzard to do it? NOW. I want some more pets – I’ve got all the others. Can I? Can I? You could add the baby murloc tadpole as well because they are so cute. Maybe your orphan could have picked one up and stuffed it in his/her pocket and gives it you to look after because you did so well with your the orphan….. Oh, there is so much potential there. Fantastic thoughts!

  2. I was so sad there was no Northrend children’s week quest as well. Tuskar would have been a fantastic way to introduce it. Bravo on your idea, and yes, those pet choices are good, though the worm would have been a good alternative or else a baby bear too.

  3. As of patch 3.2 there will be.
