Who is Blingtron? – The Starting Zone

Banner with human & orc confused level ones in front of their beginning areas,

 

Hello again, class!  It is time again to have a lovely educational dissertation!  Doesn’t that sound delightful?  Now, if you would all kindly take your seat, we shall get started.  This week I would like to discuss a special little guy that seems to be raising the eyebrows of some new residents of Azeroth.  Just this week I was taking my daily stroll through the busy streets of Stormwind when I saw someone new to our land asking “What is this thing?”  They were asking about a friend us veterans love to see. His name is Blingtron.

 

What is Blingtron?

Blingtron is a special daily quest that is made by engineers.  Citizens with the engineering profession can learn to make a Blingtron and then they can place him anywhere they choose to.  This is why Blingtron seems to be in a different place every time you see him. As I said, he is a very special daily quest!

So he is a daily?

Yes, and no! Blingtron is a daily quest, but is a daily quest per account! If you do the quest on one character then all other characters on that account will be ineligible to accept the quest.

 

What will the quest give me?

The quest rewards a gift box that contains many different goodies. Sometimes it is a grey trash item which is great for selling on newer characters who might need extra gold for bags, training, etc.  Sometimes you will be given crafting materials needed for certain professions. Occasionally, and very rarely, you may even receive a pet or a mount normally crafted by an engineer!

Sometimes he looks different. Why?

There are different versions of Blingtron!  Blingtron 4000 was all the rage as adventurers explored Pandaria, but as new threats loomed over Azeroth and adventurers moved on to Draenor, our friend the Blingtron needed an upgrade!  New Blingtron 5000’s started to be deployed throughout the world. Remember, class, you may choose to accept a gift from only one Blingtron a day!  You will simply have to choose between the 4000 or 5000!

 

Do Blingtrons fight?

Yes!  Blingtron is very territorial and will fight to the death with any other Blingtron in their reach.  Sometimes he is reported to have fought with other mechanical friends as well!

And there you have it class.  I hope you enjoyed our little introduction to our friend Blingtron. I hope you have the pleasure of receiving a gift soon. They do come in beautifully wrapped packages!  I do believe it is time to dismiss class, but always remember I, Professor Thaddeus Paleo, shall always be here after class if you have additional questions!  Until next week, class dismissed!
