I while back I stumbled on the Darkmoon Faire site. It was a Friday afternoon and I had no more work. I saw the image contest so decided to do an ad for it to avoid organizing files on my computer, sending out invoices, straightening the room. So the above image is the ad, although I forgot to actually enter the contest.
So anyway, where is he? I admit that like a lot of others when I woke up to the new Azeroth I was a little disconcerted. I felt that I’d slept through something really momentous but then I was soon distracted by all the newness. My mission became to find Deathwing. I wanted to see the source of all the destruction and shake my fist at him at the very least. Sure, I want the achievement but I have a burning desire to just look at him, I wanted to see the one whose release from the earth was the catalyst that shattered my world of the last four years.
So I set forth on my journey of discovery and nope, not a peak or a sign of him yet. Can’t find him anywhere, I somehow didn’t think he’d be this shy. So while I travel Azeroth in search of Deathwing am I righting wrongs along the way, fighting dangerous beasts? Oh hell no, I’m searching for vanity pets, I’m kicking goats off the moutain, you know the important stuff. I’m still trying to get my Brazie’s Sunflower but I’m still stuck on the last quest Lawn of the Dead. I don’t mind too much as once I complete I won’t be able to play the game anymore.
I wish that Blizzard had left Deathwing ominously flying around menacing us for a while, not killing just menacing so we’d have more of a feeling of threat from him. Right now the tension I feel is between factions, boy, things between the Horde and Alliance really heated up during my long sleep.
Oh, and the other really noticeable change in the world (to me at least) is the light. I can’t get over the shadows and little pools of light. I don’t know what they’ve done but it’s really beautiful.
But I digress, I have really important news! With all this change it’s good to know you can still depend on some things to stick around. The Ancona Chicken is still available, yay!
Plucky Johnson and Mad Magus Tirth didn’t drown when the Shimmering Flats was flooded but apparently made for high ground. If you swim to the pirate boats and go up to their camp and make a right you’ll find Magus Tirth shooting fireballs at some chickens. Chase down the largest chicken and click and Plucky Johnson will appear to sell you a chicken.
So in a time of epic upheaval and change (Noooo, The Keymaster gone!) it’s nice to know that Mad Magus Tirth and Plucky Johnson are still at it.
