Yes, as a result of a family birthday celebration on Saturday I now have a Panda. Children love to make Pandas I found, there would have been more created but while they’re aware of Pandas they don’t know about multiple servers. I kept quiet about that.
I was allowed naming rights, just barely. And I had to really lobby for it, but I just can’t level someone named Fluffytail. So this is Wanchai. I don’t know what Wanchai is like now, but when I lived in Hong Kong it was the bar district. I spent some time there occasionally so I thought since the Pandaren are big on beer brewing, it fit.
So anyway, I have been taking a little time out from pet battling to tour the countryside. The Pandaren seemed like lovely people, full of kind words and sage advice. I was lulled into a false sense of security I admit. All that came screeching to a halt when I met a sadistic, maniacal, Pandaren masquerading as a gardener. Gardener Fran and the Watering Can was the first pain I’ve felt in Pandaria. Crazy, slave-driving woman. So just beware, they seem friendly and all but some of them are as crazy as humans. Just saying, watch out.
So I’m wandering around, doing the whole zen thing and I was annoyed to find I leveled on Blackhoof. Too fast, slow down. I haven’t even found some story lines in Jade Forest yet. But I was pleased that so many rares seem to stand out in the middle of a field, plainly visible. That’s so thoughtful of them, so now I have a horn that I can blow to attract all enemies attention within 40 yards which doesn’t sound like a good idea. I put it in the bank because I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from trying it out. Keep wanting to take it out though and go to a virmen infested area and blow it.
I have just been all about the pet battling. Oh, if you’re trying to find the battle pet tamers of Eastern Kingdoms that David Kosse is not where his text bubble is. When I finally found him at about 63 54 in the Hinterlands I took out my big guns and annihilated his team for wasting my time. Ha! Showed him.
So I’m all cocky now and think my team is ready to do a PvP battle, yeah, FEAR MY TEAM! I’m a proud coach, My Shore Crab, Forest Spiderling and Clockwork Gnome will defeat all takers! OMG! My babies, NOOOO! They were all dead before I could figure out what was going on. Okay, no worries, give it another shot. I queue again and get the same sadistic
bastard player. As they’re trouncing my team I made note of his pets. I only saw two, he didn’t need anymore to TOTALLY FLATTEN my team. I was so crushed I had to go and plant vegetables to recover.
So it’s back to the drawing board. He decimated my team with Lil’ Ragnaros and a Panadaren Monk. Didn’t really use Rags much, just the insane Panda. I even see complaints on the forums about the unfair uberness of Pandaren Monks.
So, I’ve got to go. Got to level up my Pandaren Monk. Looks like I need a second team, a PvP Supreme Team! Better go haunt the boards to find the best third, I will have my revenge!
