The guards in the neutral goblin towns got a severe nerf. So people can grind the Bloodsail rep easily solo.
Thank you for posting this in advance! Gives people time to think about it early compared to posting an article the day of, when the event is already half way over.
Very cool! I did not know about this. As one who did the grind pre-Cata, my Bloodsail Admiral's Hat is off to my fellow insane players. Now if they did something similar for those of us with Agent of the Shen'dralar that would be REALLY cool.
Turning on Warmode and doing it in a group of 5 makes it easier bye the way.
Just did this today and it took about 3 hours of grinding mobs in booty bay to get to Friendly. You then need to go just north of Booty Bay and look for "Good-Boy" Bruce to get the quest Avast Ye, Scallywag which you then turn in by talking to Fleet Master Firallon. You then need to take his quest Avast Ye, Admiral! and complete that and you'll get the achievement to buy the toy during Pirate's Day.
Man, would love if they added something like this for Insane in the Membrane
