Ambassador Veidt

I've managed to complete this project before the release of the Watchmen movie. Woot! Time to sit around in Stormwind waving at passers-by.

From Ambassador Veidt

I have no idea what this means. I mean, I know who Veidt/Ozymandias is, but I don't get the MMORPG tie-in.

The main tie-in is this:
I created a Death Knight.
Named Veidt.
I did the necessary sucking up to the various powers that be (read: completed the right set of quests) to get them to grant him "Exalted" status with them.
Getting the five major races of the world to consider you Exalted gives you the right to the title "Ambassador."

So now I can stand around and when people look at me, they see Ambassador Veidt, the Death Knight.

Yeah, I don't know how I feel about whether Watchmen can be spoiled, at this point. I imagine some people will be seeing it anew... I think I'll manually screen this comment til after the weekend.

They changed the way reputation quests work a while back. If you go back and re-run all of the starting zones, you can get lots of reputation even though the quests are very low level. Also, there's a shared effect such that increasing your rep with any alliance faction spills over some fraction of that reputation to all the other factions.

Combine that with a bit of runecloth bribery, and it's not so hard, though I haven't finished the process on Vethan yet.

So, does this mean your next plan is to nuke Stormwind?
Let me go make a blue glowing naked avatar and log in to your server!!!
