THE STARDANCER QUEST
(Official Name: The Giant Guardian)
Zone Level: 49
LOCATION: In Feralas Forest near the Harpy and stone guardian area.
The guild affectionately renamed this quest due to the wandering nature of Stardancer. She was always wandering off (usually after herbs) with no notice. An often repeated question resounding in guildchat was, “Ummm, where’s Star?”. Perhaps you know someone like this, or you have children, a cousin or others. This humorous quest is for you.
After speaking with the Giant Guardian (stone elemental) you are quested to located his charge, a young nightelf named Shay Leafrunner. She gives you a bell and is grateful you will take her back to the giant, but there is a catch, she will get distracted by the flora and fauna and will wander off if you aren’t watching for her. You must ring the bell to get her attention and to have her continue to follow you.

A CHAIR, A STEIN AND A GUN
FACTION: Alliance or Horde
LEVEL: (Giants in the area are 60 Elites)
LOCATION: Frostwhisper Gorge
On the South West side of Frostwhisper gorge, if you travel around the outside of the gorge (east side of the bridge) you will come to a small set of blue crystal formations in the snow. Traveling due east of there, you can navigate up the snowy slope and reach a path. This path will lead you up into the mountain and toward a rather daunting drop off. However, there is an empty encampment with a chair, a stein, and a gun. So, sit a spell and have a drink and get vertigo looking out over the drop.
Yep, I have been to all these places.
