What? You didn’t know Jaina and I are such BFFs that she gave me her secret family recipe? Don’t believe me? You’d be right, it’s the only wowish P word I could think of, so no recipe here. I exhausted all my cooking skills on that spammer’s Carrot Cake so if you were all excited about getting a recipe you’ll have to visit Gamer’s Fridge.

I’m kinda scrounging around through my bits of paper that I write thought fragments on. I’ve been looking for the next “swtor speeder.” Yes, I’m guilty, I long for the return of that heady moment of bliss when I unwittingly mentioned speeders and got the highest page views I’d ever had. I was also cheered by the fact that speeders got more interest than even my repetitive use of the words naked and nude. See, gamers are not all about the pr0n, they are after the facts, the cold hard facts. Steely eyed gamers after the facts. I got nothing.

I don’t know, I think that ship might have sailed for WoW. I was browsing and found an old list of secret places that included locations like Ironforge Airport and Dancing Troll Village, yeah, not so secret anymore. Try as I might, I cannot find anything that you don’t already know.

I know this is very, very, weak but it’s all I got. A flying bug. You can see my terror-stricken Forsaken above. Actually she was pretty calm about the whole thing but I was surprised by MY reaction to it. I was the one panicking. I’ve looked for mention of this bug and didn’t find any but then I didn’t look THAT hard because I wanted something, a revelation, something ALL NEW and it’d be kinda ruined if I actually found mention of it, so yeah, I didn’t look that hard.

Anyway, flying back to Nordrassil after completing a dangerous mission my Forsaken noticed she’d lost control of her Wyvern. She had been caught in an updraft. I might as well talk in the first person here as it was me that panicked not her. On approaching Nordrassil I lost all control and started ascending and ascending. The poor Wyvern started making that pained squawking sound mounts make when you’re flying too high. Kind of an altitude warning. NOTHING I did was stopping the ascent. I started madly hammering at my keyboard, WAIT, what? What key was that, oh, I found that by holding my X key it stopped the ascent, I could take a breath, which was hard at that altitude but I managed. The X key is the Soulshatter key. Now I know it was probably just some weird fluke that is was this key, but really, altitude WAS the enemy and I really needed some threat reduction and IT WORKED.

After a while I got tired of holding the key down. If I took my finger off it the ascent resumed. Finally, while holding the X key I decided my only option was to logout. And yes, on logging back in all was again right with the World of Warcraft. THAT IS MY BIG REVEAL FOLKS! “Nordrassil flying bug” Get ready for it! WordPress can you handle this, they’ll be coming any minute, GIRD THE SERVERS OR THE LOINS, WHATEVER! ARGH, INCOMING!!!!! Or not, we’ll see.
