I “finished” Vashj’ir. Well.. ok, I’m 145/160 with no leads on the other 15 quests. Teh Intarwebz (and twitter) says the count is borked.. so hopefully Blizz will get that fixed soon so I can get the achievement.
The quest line was very enjoyable. I’m glad that I’m a quest reader.
That said, the final quest left me at the edge of a crater.. with no clue what I was supposed to do next. No breadcrumb. No “flight point”. It just sort of fizzled at the very end and left me feeling like I’d misread the last message and hadn’t gotten some kind of hidden clue about what to do next.
I did swim down and discover Throne of Tides (and learned that if you swim to the bottom of that pool.. you die) And I picked up two quests just inside the instance door.. but I haven’t yet run the instance.
Idaknow. I guess my plan is to go off to Stormwind and see if I can pick up a breadcrumb to Maelstrom/DeepHolm. Just feels like I missed something.
[Edited to add: just so no one else runs into the problem, once you get to the bottom of the whirlpool there's the portal to Throne of Tides.. if you wander around there's an NPC who will teleport you back up to the surface to get "back" to Vashj'ir]
