Little Surprises

The last time I posted I was in a snit and did nothing but whine so I thought I’d better take a little break. What did I do on my break? The final Rift beta and I really enjoyed it. I loved the public groups when battling rifts and I do like the incredible range of customization available when building your character but in my case it would probably mean a bazillion alts as I’d want to try most everything.

I don’t know when the change above took place but when I logged back into WoW I was pleasantly surprised to find that my Phosphorescent Stone Drake has stopped dragging me around in the dirt, he now lets me ride up on top. I guess he was just letting me know who’s the boss and now feels I have got the message. This is going to save tremendously on armor dry cleaning bills.

I decided to work on a rare archaeology project and got another surprise. I know this is nit-picky but it was always annoying to me to have to get out of flight form to use the survey tool, and behold, I can now use it in flight form. Using it puts me in caster form but that’s fine. Another thing I noticed is that while my druid always did a little magical puff when changing forms I don’t remember every character doing it when getting off their mounts but they are now and I’m a great fan of magical puffs.

And while I’m on the topic of things that make me happy I have to mention the Thieving Little Pluckers. I have the feeling that I will still be doing this quest long after I’ve reached exalted with the Ramkahen. I do this every morning, first thing, with my coffee. I even stand there a while so I can hear them jabbering at me. I don’t know what makes it so satisfying to bonk these guys with that giant mallet but I could do that all day. I control myself though and only do my 30 little pluckers so as to leave some for everyone else, it’s right up there with Gnomebliteration.

  1. Lol – Amazing what a whine & a little break can do. 🙂 Did the same thing myself – had a whine – took a little break & things are looking rosy again. Glad you had fun on the Rift Beta – Do you think it could replace Wow for you? I loved it, but I’m not too enamoured with the skimpy girl costumes in Rift. It doesn’t quite fit my self image given my age. Makes me feel a little like mutton dressed as lamb 🙂

    I clicked the link to read up on that quest – sounds awesome! Am so looking forward to questing in the 80 – 85 zones. Haven’t done any of them yet – lol.

  2. LOL!! No, I was lucky, my mage was necro/warlock/something else and I got her to level15 and the whole time she just wore kind of a dress that looked pretty much like a sack, I guess those dark warlocky types don’t go in for fashion. Aion however was a different story, my character looked like she was about to step on stage in Vegas!

    I don’t know if it will replace Wow for me, there is an awful lot of humor in Wow that I think I would miss. I’m giving it a try though and I’ve already joined a guild of what seems like a group of great people so we will see!

  3. So sorry to hear about your mum and I hope she recovers and in the meantime, don’t forget or neglect to take care of yourself too. Easy to say, but from personal experience – hard to do.
    All my best wishes – Döra
