The Empire of Zul'drak issue resolved with a new quest

Alex Ziebart

A lot of players aiming for the Loremaster achievement were hitting a snag in Zul'Drak. Because of one or two quests that were only able to be done while on a single questline, a lot of players that missed it initially were blocked from going back to it and were stuck at 99/100 quests. Patch 3.0.8 brings some great news for those people: A new quest has been added to the zone so you can finish your achievement.

Chronicler To'kini in the quest hub Zim'Torga now offers the quest Tails Up, which as of this posting doesn't appear on either Wowhead or WoWDB yet. It's another of Blizzard's awkward humor quests, though luckily it's not poop related. Genitalia is the name of the game this time around. The Chronicler wants to bring some Zul'Drak wildlife back to Zandalar to study, but he specifically wants females from you. So you pump the beasts full of tranquilizers, do what you see in the picture to the right there, and you pray it's a female.

If it's a male, I assume the beast is supposed to stand up and attack you. Instead, it goes back to aggressive, stays motionless on the ground, and keeps you in combat until you kill it. Yes, it just lays there and waits to die. Euthanasia via giant hammer. Minor bug, nothing terribly problematic since you can still kill them. I suppose you could call it one of those rare beneficial bugs. You have to kill it either way, it just doesn't fight back right now. Less downtime for the win.

Pretty amusing quest overall, and a pretty good way of fixing the Empire of Zul'Drak issue, I think.
