OLRG, Chatting with Lo’Gosh and Tomes!

So Saturday the OLRG met to deal with Arthas and … CIM! What the hell is that! You’re supposed to take screen shots of the Old Ladies’ Raiding Guild, NOT YOURSELF. What is wrong with you. You didn’t get any pictures of Arthas’ cold, dead body? Maybe a nice shot of the ladies? I’m serious, I know you want to go with them but I’m putting Cat back in if you can’t be a responsible reporter.

Excuse her, I’m really sorry but all she’s interested in is … yeah … herself. She got a new, lovely gown that evening and now she’s obsessed with making a “Horns” outfit, I’ll leave her to it and see if Cat’s got anything interesting going on.

Oh Cat! I mean it was bad enough annoying random NPCs but do you think it’s wise to alienate your leaders? Apparently after that she set off to question Tyrande and Malfurion but she said they have no sense of humor and wouldn’t play along and were boring. Sasche paid a visit to Sylvanas and she was all business, refused to go off script. Oh well, at least Varian was a good sport.

So I was moaning recently that there’s not much to do and I have to thank whoever used the search term “tome of the dinosaur” to arrive here. I’m not sure how that got them here because I completely forgot about the Ancient Tome of Dinomancy.

bluebookerI mean you’d think it’d be a no-brainer for me to remember something with a name like that but nope, forgot it. My only excuse is that my Hunter was the sixth character to make the climb to ninety so I had kinda forgotten about it by then.

So in case anyone else missed it, first go to the Isle of Giants. Kill Zandalari Dinomancers until one drops an Ancient Tome of Dinomancy which will teach you how to tame your own Direhorn. Zor picked a blue one to match her hair. She’s quite pleased.

So yeah, there’s still stuff to do … I just need to like … REMEMBER it. Better late than never I guess.

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!
