Lunacy, Thy Name is … oh … me

deaddinoCim’s been sitting on about 3,000 dinosaur bones for probably a year or so. Navimie and Cymre recently got their White Raptors so I think that’s what got her attention. Time to go to the Isle of Giants and hunt dinosaur.

Wow, just wow. What the hell happened here. I remember the Isle as being a quiet place, just me and the dinosaurs. Slaughter everywhere. PEOPLE everywhere. What is up. Wait a minute, I’ve not seen one person yet from either of my two servers, what’s going on here … oh … it’s a CRZ now. For all I know the whole of Pandaria is now.

Between the fact that the dinosaur bones are no longer soul bound and can be sold and CRZ it looks like Cim really stepped in the dog’s business on this one. I TOLD her not to leave it to the last minute, jeez.

Dinosaur bounty hunters everywhere, I wonder if they really sell that many as they’re running around 4,000 gold a stack of 999. We started out being polite, if someone seemed to have staked a claim to the white dino area or the blue dino area we’d try to find someplace else.

Mostly this left her with the Pterrorwing Skyscreamers around the Alliance repairman. There were four on the ground and one in the air. Didn’t seem to be as popular. After a couple of days of that she stopped being polite. She ran screaming through all the areas tagging whatever she found. She’d had it with polite. She is after all a Warlock.

Cim was very, very excited to get a Primal Egg, she only has the Black Raptor. She hoped for one of the others. I think about 10 or 12 more dropped and she was sad she couldn’t loot them but she had hers so she was happy.

whiteraptorFinally she got her 9999 bones!

alreadyknownTime to go back to civilization! On returning she realized her Primal Egg should be ready to hatch. She opened it. She saw this. Nooo …

I’m sorry Cim but what can you do, I know you wanted … Cim? CIM? WoD’s almost here! Where are you going? Come back, we’re cleaning out our banks! Cim!

Nope, she’s gone.

staydehindYep. That’s where I found her. She’s refusing to leave until she acquires another egg. Please, please, please drop, egg. I really don’t want to be hanging out here when everyone ships out for WoD.

CIM! Come on! You can come back in two years, what’s one more mount! Please!

She’s ignoring me. Between Cat and her battle pets and Cim and her mounts … I just hope she’s ready to go by Thursday. I guess I can go study up on garrisons while I wait.

Psst … Over here … It’s Me

Yeah, it’s me in disguise. I’m on the Isle of Giants. I can’t stay long as my Intact Direhorn Hide disguise is kind of wonky. It keeps going poof in the most dangerous places … like when I was passing under the tail of a giant Devilsaur, don’t know what’s up with that. Might be Blizzard’s sense of humor, I don’t know. I’m going to have to have a word with the vendor about this.

Anyway while Cat is doing this:

catpugsYeah, I TOLD her they’re not battle pets but after getting her Crate of Kidnapped Puppies from Borginn Darkfist she didn’t care. She might have to take them to the vet though for a checkup, awful lot of butt scooting going on.

ANYWAY, back to dinosaurs. My new obsession. I need about 11,000 dinosaur bones for this A Mountain of Giant Dinosaur Bones and this A Large Pile of Giant Dinosaur Bones. I must have that mount and pet. This looked like something Cat the masochist would love but on taking her there I found the amount of time and effort it took for her to kill one small Dinosaur was not worth it.

Sasche to the rescue! Oh man, is that Warlock going to rub this in, poor Cat. Sasche has no problem with the small dinosaurs and the iLevel of her gear is about 10 or 12 under Cat’s. But if she shares what she gets I’m sure Cat will get over it.

dinoshipOh, and I want to ask you smarty pants who have been posting about fighting on the boat, how the hell did you get on that boat. I don’t mean getting past the giant dinosaur, I mean I can’t figure out how to board it, lol.

Okay, gotta go. This disguise could disappear any minute. Back to work, only 10,762 more bones to go!
