Poor Elgar

Last night Kerick was standing around in Stormwind debating on what to do, when Elgar logged on.

/guild “Hmmm, that reminds me … I should go catch Mr. Pinchy”

I’m sure most of my readers are familiar with Elgar’s eternally cursed mission to catch the elusive crustacean.

Kerick’s total catch:

33 Furious Crawdad

7 Golden Darter

2 Enormous Barbed Gill Trout

2 Curious Crate

1 Mote of Water

and one ….

Oh, and it gets even better! After hearthing back to Stormwind, I look at Kerick’s  map and decide that the four archaeology spots that are close to each other up North have mocked him long enough. It’s time to get rid of them. So I hopped a tram to Ironforge. (Why the tram instead of the portal to Twilight when the nearest dig is in Arathi? I dunno. Sometimes I just like the tram.)

I hop on my horse and fly out of Ironforge. I’m thinking to myself that he really needs to get killed by Deathwing to top off the night. I swear it’s true, that was actually on my mind. As I’m approaching the Wetlands, I hear Elgar exclaim in vent. Now, Elgey had just been showing off his Razowmaw Hatchling in chat a few minutes ago, so I know he’s in the Wetlands. As I cross the border, the screen goes red.

“OMG are we gonna get it?? Where are you?” I ask. Elgar is all excited, but then says that the kid he’s mentoring just got killed but he’s still alive and didn’t get it. I thought I was flying towards Raptor Ridge but all of a sudden I see an expanse of water in front of me. Oh crap! I’m going to wrong way!! Turn the horse around and …

GOGO CRUSADER AURA!!! All of a sudden I am falling … I hurry up and turn my UI back on so I can screenshot the cheeve spam.

Sorry Elgey. Here, let’s have Lady La-La sing for you and cheer you up!

Oh. Um, my bad. I kinda killed her. But I’d always wondered what that boombox was doing under that one roof in the Naga section of the first part of Vashj’ir. Now I know! It plays this really crappy, tinny pop music when Lady La-La spawns. It’s really, really horrid.

So sorry Elgey. But hey, you got a Hatchling! And Trout got to tame King Krush! So your day wasn’t ALL bad. 😉

    Slice, that Singing Shell she dropped is a spirit trinket. Ari also picked up a 1H caster mace and a spirit ring out of Silken Treasure Chests in Uldum over the weekend. So he has 3 blue BoE spirit pieces in his bag …

    do you see where this is going?

    Heck yeah! Spirit for increased runic power regeneration! Kinda like how Log stacks intellect on his warrior for .. uh .. harder hitting thunderclaps I think.

    Actually, you see that little belf pally up there in the sidebar? The one that I was thinking about leveling prot? Yeah … screw that. Healing pugs > tanking pugs.

    Taming King Krush on just my third lap around Sholazar was worth it, though standing in fire would have been cool too.

    Congrats to both of you!!!

    I am really glad that you didn’t say anything about Tyrande’s Doll. Because I’d have to kill you.

  12. repgrind Says:

    Screw Tyrande’s doll. I’m going to find Shandris’ sword and poke it clear through Tyrande’s bloody doll.

    Gratz for a great day! I’ve had a couple like that, but I may take the mantle of “biggest loser” in the Mr.Pinchy contest.
