When Turtles Fly and Should you Seek Medical Attention for Dramatization?

flyturtleOkay, so I put in a ticket to trade the stupid wrong weapon I made for the mats. Blizzard said, “Ha! Ha! When turtles fly!” Um … Blizzard? Oh Blizzard? We have lift-off! The turtles are IN THE AIR! Can I have my mats now?

Yeah … I’m making all that up … except the flying turtle part and the part where I can’t trade my stupid weapon for my mats. Nobody will buy it, pretty much nothing sells here anymore so I have high hopes for this virtual realms thing in patch 5.4. I’m saving all my junk that won’t sell and hoping to flog it all off on my new compadres.

So anyway, I think Blizzard is expecting a little much. A doofus who makes herself the wrong weapon is probably not going to be on top of things enough to meet their expectations. So if you ever make the wrong weapon, SWIFTNESS is key. Learn from my mistake. Here’s the sad part of the response. Sniff …

“Sadly, in this case it looks like the Blade was crafted too long ago for us to be able to restore.  Whenever an item is crafted there is a very small window of time (2 hours) afterwards in which we are able to reverse the crafting.  So, since your ticket was put in outside of that 2 hour window, I’m sorry, but we will not be able to reverse the crafting for you.”

See, even THEY were saddened, we’re ALL sad.

OMG! And here I’d been thinking this was a simple matter of deleting my weapon and sending me the mats. I had no idea the spell of reverse crafting had to be cast, that probably involves Mages whose hourly rates are so high Blizzard can only afford to have them hang around for two hours. So always remember … act swiftly or there will be no reverse crafting for you.

The very nice email goes on to say … apologize for any frustration or inconvenience that this has caused. Thank you, but for the first time in seven years I find it’s caused anger. I have contacted support to the best of my memory maybe three or four times. It has never helped except for the time I fell in a crack in Nagrand in BC and was stuck. I have given thousands of dollars to this company, I have not unsubbed once. I’ve had their back for seven years through good and lean times and they can’t take the freaking weapon in her bag that says on it made by Janinna and give me five freaking Spirits of Harmony? Really?

Happy happy joy joy deep breaths … more deep breaths …

Maybe this coupled with constant oppressive latency from an internet provider too big to give a shit has made me a tad grumpy.

So to cheer myself up I took a look at recent search terms. They did not disappoint.

what check ups to do when your dramatized

Now see, I did not know this. I didn’t know medical attention was required if you’re dramatized. I could see that if you CAUSE a lot of drama something might happen to you that would require medical attention. Anyway, I hope they get back to me with the tests you need done in case it happens to me.

born on the back side if it werent for bad luck i

I love incorrect song lyrics and if you’re going to do it, it should be born UNDER a back side which just makes it so much better. Thank you whoever you are, I had so much fun. I went to YouTube and listened while loudly singing, “BORN UNDER A BACKSIDE.” It was wonderful, I might do it again.

So yes, I’m totally cheered. I’m not saying I’m ready to go grind 50 motes of harmony for that weapon yet but still, things are looking up. At least I wasn’t born under a backside. HAHAHA! Okay, I can’t help it, I’ve got to have another sing-a-long.

All together now!

Born under a backside. I’ve been down since I began …
