How To Win Friends And Influence Enemies.

This is a quest in the dk starter zone where you use Keleseth's Persuaders to reveal the Crimson Dawn.
I've been whacking away at scarlet NPCS (not the civilians, the priest, marksman, and commanders) for about half an hour without a quest update. Is this a known issue? Or am I the most unlucky fresh dk in the game?

It's a complicated quest, because they basically just hand you the two pokers and say "go stab stuff". But you aren't trying to kill people with them, you actually want your target to live as long as possible.
Just use auto-attacks, and whenever the effect procs so that they start talking, quickly stop your auto-attacks and just stand there 'till they start fighting back again.
You want to proc the effect against a single enemy as many times as possible.

I figured someone would assume that I have never made a dk since the release of WotLK...
I would start auto attack, the moment they got the debuff from the pokers I stopped attacking for about 10 seconds. Each mob would be stunned about 6 times before they died.

I did this for 45 minutes, 20+ mobs killed, before finally I got the quest update. I think this needs to be reworked. Even a 5% chance per stun would yield better results than what I got, and that's just plain stupid to have to wait for 45 minutes to progress my brand new toon.
If I wanted to auto attack something for 45 minutes I'd go back to vanilla and raid as a ret paladin.

My bad, I thought you wanted help. I won't make that mistake again.

lol.

My advise is, If wow is to hard for you to figure out, then please stop trying.

"Hard" isn't the word you're looking for. This quest isn't hard. You auto attack and win. I didn't have a say in the matter whether I was going to get it on the first mob or the 20th. There was nothing I could do to speed up the process, increase the probability of the update occuring, nothing. That is a very poor way to design a quest based on a very low probability (remember zhevra hooves in Barrens? Yeah, it's like that).

Mind you I have leveled many many many dks out of the starter zone, never have I waited for 45 minutes to get this quest completed until now. Was I just unlucky? Apparently. Can Blizzard make this quest less obnoxious? Of course they can.

another thing to do is to take off most of your gear so you hit for less damage.

"Or am I the most unlucky fresh dk in the game?"

I'm not sure how anyone could mistake you for someone that is new after reading that. That just SCREAMS "experienced player on one of his many dk's". Really it does.

I think you're just profoundly held back. Like your parents were related before marriage. That sort of held back.

I've made many dks' got it once on the second mob, but i've also had a dk who ground through enough mobs to get an entire level before one finnally procced the dialog. Usually it's pretty fast, and you get it within a few mobs of entering the city.

equip just one in the main hand slot. non frost spec dks can not dual wield but can equip single one handed weapons in the main hand only. probably works better for the quest as its very easy to kill the quest targets before they talk

Probably the first time in a long time I've seen a necro-post that wasn't actually just stupid spam.

When I was leveling a DK Alt with a friend from the Forums she hated me a little one night cause I got the quest to complete on the first dry swing on the first target and she took like a half hour getting her's while I laughed and watched.
