The Bird is the Word

Or Geek Pride Day should be made a universal holiday! Luckiest day ever. I’m pretty sure this video will be watched hundreds of times … by me. Not that interesting if you’re not me but I just had to commemorate the event. I did not see this coming. I didn’t think that the Prairie Dog would turn out to be the lucky talisman that would finally, finally, win me The Reins of the Raven Lord but it did.

But you know now that I think about it, it probably wasn’t the prairie dog at all! It was my new avatar. I think that’s it! I mean I did this for years and the day I get a beautiful new avatar it drops? Kind of suspicious don’t you think? Maybe it’s a magical avatar! Maybe Vidyala puts a little magical something in them, might be worth looking into.

Anzu, 158th kill. I’ll kind of miss him. I had even started looting without paying attention, thought I had another Boomstick.

So here’s me running around on my bird with musical accompaniment. Had to go to Shattrath City and tell my homies I finally got him, just a few years late. All the NPCs seemed suitably impressed. Man, I don’t know what to do to follow that up, fishing? I don’t know, maybe I’ll just ride around some more.

Hospitality at the World’s End Tavern

Okay now doesn’t that just give you the creeps. What? Well yes, I did try to click on them, how could you not. Noblegarden flashbacks, will they never end. Anyway, I don’t have much to say which will soon become evident but since WordPress ate my blog for a few hours this morning I feel compelled to write SOMETHING just in gratitude for its reappearance.

My Druid really wants the Reins of the Raven Lord, I know it’s been three or four years. She’s been doing it since the room was crowded with bird people and she needed to summon him. She did it alone a few times and got feared around the room, not pretty. She takes a break once in a while but it’s so quick now she tries to keep her appointment with Anzu every day. I feel kinda bad for him but if he’d just drop the damn reins she wouldn’t bother him anymore. But it must be lonely in there, I think he withholds them just to guarantee company.

There he is, poor dead Anzu. He’ll be back, nostalgic for those better times when he had a whole room full of retainers to carry out his wishes. Sad really. One hundred and twenty secondth try. Nada. A Boomstick. I could have armed a whole freaking army by now … with Boomsticks.

Sigh … so anyway, She arrived in Shattrath a little early. Had to wait until 11:59 for it to unlock. What to do? Being a friendly sort she decided to visit the World’s End Tavern. It must be pretty quiet around there and she felt sure Shattrath Saul and the others would welcome the company. Boy, did she get a surprise.

Well I NEVER! That’s the thanks she got for trying to be sociable. Poor thing, no Reins of the Raven Lord and Albert Quarksprocket called her annoying. She hearthed back to Stormwind where the guards appreciate her conversation. Later Anzu.
