Be Careful What You Wish for …
you may get it. Yeah, all those mount drops in Draenor and toys and pets that I mercilessly tracked down. Done. I’m down to slim pickings. I think Ulduar, ICC and Dragon Soul are it. Dragon Soul … HAHAHAHA … I couldn’t figure that thing out when I was with other people, I don’t see me figuring it out on my own.
So what to do, what to do? I know, sightseeing. Cat’s never seen the Vault of Archavon, we’ll do that. I don’t know how many weeks she’s been trying but Wintergrasp never leaves the Horde’s hands. Ever.
Okay, what else? Where hasn’t she been? Oh! Hour of Twilight!
Thrall? Hey Thrall! Um, look behind you … we can’t go back, we’re blocked in. You HAVE to come to your senses and blast us out of here! THRALL!
Nope. Uncommunicative. The next day Cat didn’t run ahead of Thrall which worked and didn’t throw him into a snit. What else Cat? Any ideas?
Cat! NO! NEVER! I do not enjoy having the fact that I’m old and slow shoved in my face.
I remember when that horrible woman Lieutenant Thorn showed up in the Garrison you said, there is NO AMOUNT of boredom that would make me do Proving Grounds! Never, not happening.
Yeah, Cat was that bored. She went there. She did the Bronze and the Silver Proving Grounds. Not fun. Thankfully she’s not bored enough yet to try Gold. Maybe if there was a pet involved. It was kinda worth it to get the punctuation off Thorn’s head though. There’s that.
Cat, can you think of anything? Any ideas?
What? I could have a shiny pony with Glyph of the Luminous Charger if I had a Paladin? No, you’re right, that’s fantastic Cat! Okay, let’s try this one more time! Maybe the eighth or tenth time’s the charm!
So Luz was rolled and off we went. Wow, Elwynn Forest was pretty hysterical. There were traffic jams of Chauffeured Choppers everywhere. Cat was right, this is fun. Although I wish I didn’t feel the need to equip all the heirlooms just because I have them. I believe she’s wearing ten of them.
Immersion, I’ve found, for me requires fear. I hadn’t known that but apparently sneaking along waiting for something to jump out at you and then fighting for your life is immersive.
Not so much with Luz of the Ten Heirlooms, she’s like a superhero, she just plows through whatever is in her way.
It messes with questing through zones too. There she is up there trying to look all “of the light” with a tiny goofy Raptor with a skull in it’s mouth following her. A leftover of quests abandoned because she’s leveling too fast. She does about three quests in an area and then has to move on. Still, I’m enjoying visiting places again at the correct level.
Thanks Cat, great idea! But you aren’t lonely are you? I could come back for some archaeology if you want?
No, no! I’m good! I’ll just rearrange the Garrison furniture. You and Luz take your time, have fun. I’ll be here.
Okay then. Luz! Let’s move out, maybe if we change zones you’ll lose your skull bearing Raptor. One can hope. Only 69 more levels til Draenor! She might GO … ALL … THE … WAY!
