Traveling with Cat

travelingSo I got kinda tired of being beaten up so I thought I’d see what Cat’s doing. She’s pretty low maintenance. No beating up Warlocks with black belts in warlockery for her. In fact she really doesn’t like to kill anything. She pretty much only believes in self-defense, so yeah, low maintenance.

Her mission seems to be to level all the battle pets. She has a morning route. She visits Farmer Nishi and Seeker Zusshi first thing in the morning to level higher level pets. She then hits up Outlands for leveling lower and mid level pets. I asked her what her criteria are for selecting a tamer to put on the route.

Yeah Cat, how do you pick them? Is it just random? For example what’s so special about Narrok in Nagrand?

Crickets.

What? Is that some special battle pet terminology? Crickets?

No, I go to Nagrand to hear the crickets … while I battle … I don’t know, it’s just nice.

I see, okay, so you’re visiting tamers in places you like to visit. Not for their pet battling mojo, I got it.

seekerHer other important business to try to complete before WoD is completing the Seat of Knowledge. She’s been stalled at three left for forever. And I think she’s done more killing doing this then the whole expansion put together. Seem like every dig site has a rare plunked right in the middle of it. So poor Cat is forced to kill it. She is such a pacifist.

boredcatThere she is trying to wrap up her other “must have before WoD.” Red fish, blue fish. Yeah, she’s looking bored. Maybe she’d make better headway if she’d use the fishing pole instead of trying to swipe them out of the water with her paws. Many, many fish but no luck yet.

I had thought that Cim and Sasche the Warlocks were the ones with an impossible mission but on reflection I’m not liking Cat’s odds much better.

What? Oh … alright … I’m coming. Jeez, Cat wants to go digging. Just between you and me the “fun” of archeology is wearing thin. If I dig up one more Pearl of Yu’lon I swear I’m going to barf.

What’s that? Yes, I’m coming. Are you sure you wouldn’t rather fish?

theinnatRight now we’re not only waiting for WoD, we’re waiting for the REVELATION of the release date. I know we’re all making the assumption that it will be a date other than:

This item will be released on December 20, 2014.
Pre-order now.
  • Journey to a classic age
  • Drop into the action at level 90
  • Stake your claim on Draenor
  • Power your way to level 100

Because that would just be … stupid. We’d hit our enrage timer and who wants that. So yeah … these are the times that try men’s souls. And women and Tauren and Forsaken and Dwarfs … yeah, pretty much all of us.

So idle hands are Gul’dan’s play things or however that quote goes, so I thought Cat needed to work on some things that she won’t want to do once WoD is here.

Archeology, how’s that coming Cat? Cat! One dig a day is not what I meant, I meant finish up Pandaria! What are you doing anyway?

Achievements? Great, that works! What did you get yesterday? Better Off Dred? Okay, that’s great. What else? That’s it? How about Bloody Rare, you’ve been working on that for a while now. Are you done? Kraator? That’s it? This whole expansion and you only got that one? What have you been doing?

Promotion? Promotion for who? A hotel chain? What? Oh, THE hotel chain. They own all the Inns? Okay, I guess if you’re gainfully employed that’s a good enough reason … FOR FREE? You’re doing it for free! Cat, that’s not how employment works, are you at least getting millage for all the flight paths?

Jarel? You mean your boyfriend Jarel? Oh, he works for them, of course. He thought it might help? Why, is he in trouble? Oh! Do I think he looks shifty? Erm … no … of course … not. I can’t IMAGINE why they’d have any doubts about Jarel.

Yes, I’m sure your promotion will help them see he’s a fine upstanding employee who has only the best intentions. No, I am NOT being a smart ass, I really mean it Cat.

Are you having fun? Sigh … okay … I guess that’s all that matters Cat. No, hey … you just keep on having your fun … Bloody Rare will still be here in two years.

What? Guess where you are? I hate that game, I’m not playing. No, it IS NOT fun. Ask someone else. Jeez … WoD … please hurry.
