I couldn’t wait to make the Elekk Plushie battle pet, and as soon as I had 50 hexcloth I immediately
wasted used them on that. And he’s cute… until you summon him. Then he’s just creepy.
He doesn’t move, see, and that’s the problem. He just sort of stands there, staring at you with those pink button eyes. And then you move, and he stays where he was, and you forget all about him… until you stop again somewhere and suddenly he’s there, right behind you, staring at you with those pink button eyes.
It ain’t natural, I tells ya.
I would like for these to be tameable because my hunter wants one. I’m more of a cat-person in WoW, but these guys are super cute. (Yes, I have a couple of the non-ghostly ones from the Plaguelands.)
I would also like for my Warlock to have ghostly form all the time, because it’s super cool. Kthxbai.
Just to prove that I’m not lying when I say I’m a perma-noob — I’ve done the quest in the screenshot three times already and NOT ONCE did I notice the 4th ingredient in the top right (the quest doesn’t necessarily use all four possible ingredients). It was only after my druid failed three times to get the ‘glowy’ ingredient that I, puzzled that none of the three ingredients were working, went and checked the quest out on WoWHead.
If I’d been a bit less of a noob I’d have remembered that the previous quest had me gather four ingredients to make that potion with. Duh.
Forget pepper jack, magic jack or lumberjack — all the best people use COMMANDOJACK!
Riding my Shinri “mount” in Shadowmoon Valley. I should have known that was too easy a kill to reward an actual mount (it’s a 10-second directable mount-ride useable only in SMV with a 1-hour cooldown)…
For those who remember that excruciatingly slow tour of Shattrath on the heels of Khadgar’s orange grape, losing it half the time because it clipped through floors and walls…
Now it’s giving excruciatingly slow tours of player garrisons. Just as long as I’m not the one having to follow it, it’s all good.
It might be fashionable to hate on WoW, but I’m going to buck the trend and give it some love, because so far this expansion is the shiz. I came late to both Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King, so I only experienced Cataclysm and Pandaria when they first launched, and of those three this is definitely my favourite. For one thing it’s a 10-level expansion, which feels a bit more filling than the previous 5-level ones — but mostly it’s because of garrisons.
I hereby predict a LOT of alt levelling, as though there wasn’t enough of it in WoW already. As a card-carrying altoholic, this makes me very happy indeed.
It’s been all of 2 days, granted (since the FixItAll™ patch on Saturday morning), but I have been Wowcracking the whole time. And ok, that sounds even worse than I thought it would, but I’ll own it.
I’m levelling my warlock because hunter-levelling-with-friends, and speaking of which, here’s a funny that did the rounds this weekend:
— so yeah, I’ve been levelling the warlock (tangent #2, can you say ‘OP’?), and since garrison development is tied to a character’s progress through the expansion content, her garrison is the farthest along at the moment.
It may not be housing, but I give you:
My very own bank, which means that soon I’ll never need to leave my garrison and see those pesky OTHER PEOPLE ever again!! Ain’t life grand?!
I also have an enchanting building but right now it’s a tad underwhelming. I’m sure it’ll be more entertaining at max level — as always, most things in the expansion are designed for max level chars, but the getting-to-max journey is as entertaining as it ever was. If there’s one thing WoW does well it’s the levelling content, which I’ve always found weird considering it’s supposedly secondary to everything else.
Anyway, it’s been fun. And that’s all you get because I need to log on and send my
mini-onions followers on some missions. Work work!
