I’d given up on EVER getting the elusive Crawling Claw. I had a few minutes the other day so I stopped at a few dig sites in Pandaria. I stopped by to say hello to Brann Bronzebeard and to trade for some Crates of Tol’vir Archaeology Fragments.
Oh, a new rare Tol’vir artifact to solve, I’ve never heard of the Mummified Monkey Paw. Maybe it’s a consolation pet for those who never find the Crawling Claw. A stupid little shriveled up monkey paw battle pet. I googled it and found people asking what it was. Hmm … a mystery. Okay, I have a really bad memory, maybe I knew what this was and just forgot. I’ll go search Cymre’s site and see if I can find out what it is. Surely she knows.
YES! The Mummified Monkey Paw IS THE CRAWLING CLAW when it’s solved! I won the LOTTERY! I hit the JACKPOT! If you find a Mummified Monkey Paw you did too!
What followed was frenzied digging in an attempt to get 150 fragments before I had to log off. I knew my husband wouldn’t understand a change of plan so that I could dig for virtual fragments to attain my virtual pet, no matter how long I’ve been virtually waiting for it. These inhabitants of Earth just don’t understand.
With 20 minutes to spare I now had my own Crawling Claw! Cat was ecstatic! She even had time to stop by and show off in front of Farmer Nishi. I think she was trying to intimidate her.
I named him Three Wishes after the horrifying story of The Monkey’s Paw … yeah, more intimidation.
So don’t be like me and think you’ve dug up some cheap imitation … remember … Mummified Monkey Paw = Crawling Claw!
Apparently the key to obtaining it is when you’ve given up all hope and are completely demoralized and don’t even care anymore … TADA!
