Did You Miss Me?

December 29, 2011

Yeah right. You really expect me to believe that?

I got home Tuesday evening and had a couple of hours or so to collect presents before it was time to jump right back into raiding. We cleared to Madness and made a token attempt or two at it before calling it for the night. Got back to Org, turned in my tokens, and gemmed/enchanted/mogged/reforged my shiny new 2 piece. Ride back into Cowtown and there’s a hitching post set up. I don’t know the people using it so I whisper Arv ‘that’s not yours, is it.’ Of course, that prompted him to get his out too and invite me to a party so I could play.

It’s all fun and games until someone puts your eye out with a starfish.

And of course, Arv didn’t stop with just horses and starfish. We had to have as many toys out as possible … that’s the way things are with him. Plus he had to show off his new helm that completed his 4 piece.

Yesterday I had the whole day to play. I goofed around and finished collecting presents and then cheated on WoW for the afternoon with some Sims3 Pets. What?? You guys were all playing Star Wars anyway, you wouldn’t even know if I hadn’t told you. Logged back on a couple hours before raid time and decided to get a couple things out of the way.

ELGAR! You might want to stop reading now. No, really. Stop here.

Ok, you can’t say I didn’t warn you though.

Awwww. Who’s the widdle cutesy wutesy crustacean?

Of course, part of the reason I went to work on getting him was because I’m pretty close to finishing the fishing achievements, but the main reason was because I got a red winter helper box to complete Van’s Christmas pet collecting, which left me one pet shy of the Littlest Pet Shop. Pinchy completed it.

So now I have my very own Celestial Dragon. Arv’s not in any real danger of me catching up to him since he has all those TCG pets, but that won’t stop me from trying. Can you imagine the pet battle teams we can build, having 150+ pets at our disposal? Hehehe.

Deathwing last night. Multiple sub 5% wipes. Next week, he is dying. We just have to fine tune that second phase now that we are consistently making it there.

So anyway … hope you all had a good Winter Veil and are ready for tons of new posts. I’m looking forward to another year of shenanigans and it will all get posted right here.

Poor Elgar

February 28, 2011

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. 😉
