Howlin’ For You

moonmoonDo I have actual paying-me-money work to do? Yes. Do I have vacuuming that needs doing, laundry to do, yard work, smelly dogs who need baths? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Did I do that? Noooooo … I felt a compelling NEED to acquire Moon Moon. I HAD to have Moon Moon the very first day the Darkmoon Faire was in town. HAD TO. Sometimes I think I’m one card short of a deck … really. And it’s too late in life to start worrying about fixing it so I’m just going to go with it.

I started my Moon Moon quest at 9:30am and thankfully it was over at 6:00pm. The first few times were painful, although groups were cautioned not to let Moonfang get too far from where she spawns or she would reset, she repeatedly did just that. One attempt had four resets but the grand prize winner was 14 resets. I know! Did I leave? NO! I needed Moon Moon.

In the middle of the day I was becoming dejected and not looking forward to having to buy my Moon Moon. One was listed on the AH at 350,000. Yeah, like that’s happening.

I took a Moon Moon break at the 4:00pm spawn to feed hungry dogs and put clothes in the wash. It was agony. That was probably my lucky time and I missed it! Oh no! So I turn up for the 5:15 spawn and finally, finally … Moon Moon was mine!

Cimmeria the Warlock handles this kind of stuff because Cat doesn’t like chasing butts around. Cim doesn’t care about pets so she told Cat she owes her big time for Moon Moon. Hate to think what she’ll require of Cat, it’s like making a deal with the devil. Not my business. It’s between the two of them.

So anyway, here’s the interesting part. I have not been lucky with pet drops from the rares on Timeless Isle. I can’t even count the times Cat and Cim have whacked those skunky guys around … nothing. So I whined at Bubbles of Mischief. That wasn’t enough for me, oh no, I then went and whined at WoW Misadventures about my crappy pet drop luck.

Then I login … kill my first Jademist Dancer … a Jademist Dancer drops. NO WAY! I’m never that lucky. Move on to the skunky bunch and WHAT! A Skunky Alemental drops! What is going on here?

bobsocksSo today I get Moon Moon? I see a pattern, you might want to try it yourself. I’m not sure if whining at Bubbles of Mischief or WoW Misadventures did it or possibly it was the COMBINATION of the two! Not sure if the order matters, I’m not sure who I whined to first.

You might want to try it, it worked for me … and oh … I did have my lucky Spongebob Squarepants socks on. You might need those too. It couldn’t hurt.
