I Got your Moose Right Here Redux

Yes, I did a post on THAT moose. Yes, maybe I was a little bitter. Catwynn got so crazy she bought a chicken but all is well now. Cat’s got her moose. Mounting Made Easy is a leatherworking quest to obtain the pattern for this fine fellow. I’ve had it a while but didn’t want to try to complete it until my leatherworking was 800. How frustrating would that be?

So I studied. Then I became apprehensive. I read all the comments about people wanting to do severe damage to the evil, sadistic mastermind behind it.

Oh boy … not sounding good.

So this morning I thought I would just start it, there are checkpoints right? When I become hysterical with frustration I can take a break, right?

So I have my Stonehide Leather Barding so I won’t dismount when that little … moose runs me into mobs, check.

I have my Fighter Chow so that hopefully I don’t die when the little freak jumps us off cliffs, check, here goes nothing.

At many times during this ride I would display signs of insanity by doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. I would smack myself in the head and refer to my favorite video by HeelvsBabyface. I’m sure there are many great guides out there and kudos to them all. Without your help I’d be riding into the night, maybe the morning too after that moose.

All I can say is I love checkpoints. A couple of times I succeeded by accidentally falling in the right direction. The whole thing took about 40 minutes.

Yay! Yay!

Congratulations Cat! Make your moose!

Cat? Cat? What’s wrong?

I don’t have the mats! I didn’t think to check!

So as it turns out the most frustrating part was scurrying all over trying to come up with 4 more Blood of Sargeras so Cat could actually make her Elderhorn Riding Harness.

Finally with the help of some drunk vikings she got her Bloods and it was done.

I know it’s over now and easy to say I kind of enjoyed it … but … I kind of did. What is unfair is today is laundry day, so yeah. I’m stuck here and Cat’s riding around Stormheim. Oh well, I guess she deserves it.
