What’s Wrong with This Picture?

nonselfieNo Cat no! You use the selfie camera to take the selfie, you don’t take a screen shot of the … oh never mind. Cat did Honoring a Hero today to get the cool Spiritshards … um … I mean because of her desire to honor Uther. She told me she took selfies and this is what I found. Maybe she read about selfie deaths and didn’t want to chance it.

Anyway, she went to Ironforge to party at Brewfest and learned something. She was doing Bark for the Thunderbrews! which she has some trouble with. If there’s an ejector seat on that ram she sure hasn’t found it so at the end of the run she has to try to run in tight little circles around the quest giver to try to turn it in.

No I’m not kidding, it’s awful. So while she can get back to the quest giver in the time allotted she is in danger of running out of time trying to hand in the quest.

In a fit of pique she changed to flight form just to stop the damn ram, thinking she’d lose the quest. She didn’t. Yay! Now she can just bark at the four locations and fly back from Ironforge, whew.

What? No it has NOTHING to do with the amount of beer she consumed. Do you think she’d risk barking for the Thunderbrews inebriated when a Sausage Grill is at stake … seriously … hic …

Beware Brewfest Revellers!

It’s that time of year again. My druid abandons her solitary pursuits to once again risk the lives of four innocents. Their lives are wantonly gambled for the chance she’ll get a Swift Brewfest Ram in her Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest. I wonder if I’m the only one who does this. It’s been, well actually years since I actively participated in a somewhat organized group other than holidays, and solo killing is different than working as a team which I’ve pretty much forgotten how to do. I feel bad that those four other people are striding bravely to meet Coren Direbrew confident that everyone here knows their role.

That’s so not true. I guess it’s a little better this year. I get a little practice when I do The Protectors of Hyjal with my crew.  Unfortunately they’re not real so they don’t make me nervous and prone to mistakes. It’s nerve-wracking with REAL people. If I get nervous enough I can descend into that mindless Mangle spamming druid and totally forget about Rip and Shred.

This is why I try to stay away from unsuspecting groups. They probably assume I remember that cats can heal, they’d be wrong. Solo, I never heal myself as I wouldn’t live very long in caster form. I tend to read the words, resto druid and for a second I think, what class is … oh … it’s me. I could certainly rez you, if you were kind enough to remind me that I can indeed rez someone.

If the tank went down, I’d be more than happy to switch to bear. But the reality is, I’m probably I’m so busy mangling Coren’s butt to kill him before he kills some of my group-mates, that all four could be dead and I wouldn’t notice.

But, I’m sad to say for rewards this high, I yearly and gladly risk your life. You can’t imagine how many lives were lost to get me that Kodo.

What! I’m sorry but come on, Direbrew’s Remote, so worth it. I said I’d rez you.

Be careful out there.
