A rare sort of evening

Last night I logged in and immediately get a whisper asking to come help DPS an Obsidian Sanctum 25-3 Drakes kill, which I'd never done before. They only needed one more DPS. 5 minutes later...


And a shiny new title! Twilight Vanquisher Rades is okay, I'll probably wear it for a few days before going back to my old standby of "the Hallowed."

Next I went to do my jewelcrafting daily. It was the Iron Dwarf one so I headed up to the mountains north of Dal. Out of habit I start mashing my Rarespawn macro and what should I happen to find outside the cave?


SKOLL AMG. DISMISS UM, UM, UHHHHHH ONLY ROOM FOR ONE SPIRIT BEAST, BYE LOQUE.

Ecstasy! Definitely the coolest looking Spirit Beast. I know I'll never use him (except on Blood Princes!) but his skin is so great.

After I handed in my JC daily, realized I was running a little low on Mammoth Meat so I headed up to Zul'Drak to slay some mammoths.

AND WHAT SHOULD I HAPPEN TO FIND??


TWO IN ONE NIGHT, WTF!

I yelled at my hunter buddy to drop what he was doing IMMEDIATELY and come tame Gondria. He complied, but on his way realized he wasn't high enough level. D: Fortunately, another hunter in my guild happened to log on right as I was agonizing over what to do (I couldn't kill it, after all!) and he gladly flew over and nabbed him.

Finally, some friends and I decided that since Malygos was the weekly, we should get the key from downing Sapphiron. So we headed over to Naxx and took him out. With 5 people.


Overall, an amazingly lucky and productive night!

    Claiming Skoll is cooler than Loque? Thems be fighting words, hombre!

    Either way, that's just some incredible luck right there. Congratulations on Skoll!

    Nice! Skoll looks awesome, congrats on all the shiny new stuff. :D

    BTW this reminds me, I had meant to ask you - have you ever written an entry where you talk about your pets? Their names, where you found them, why they are your pets, etc. I was thinking that especially as a BM hunter it'd be pretty interesting. I'd love to read about it sometime if you haven't already written it!

    @Mits - Haha, Loque is cool, but come on...Skoll has lightning!! I paid my dues farming Loque, I'm allowed to make fun of him! ;)

    @Vid - I haven't written a pet entry, actually. That's a great idea! I'm definitely going to work on that sometime.

    Grats!

    I love the way Skoll looks. I REALLY dislike dogs and so it goes over into the wolf pets in the game but really... Skoll's skin is so gosh darn cool that I think I'd have to overcome my dislike to have him for a pet. He looks awesome :)

    Oh I didn't tell you, I killed King Krush after my multiple failed attempts to tame. I really wish I hadn't been in the middle of a raid and had more time when he was discovered. I wonder if some reset was done in prep for new patch? you really think we are lucky enough to have found those three all in one evening?

    Yeah I did. I didn't want anyone else to take your pet since you weren't online. I would have even given you dibs. If you would have been feared into four packs of wasps you would have killed him too. It was hands down the worst possible spot to find him.

    What we really need to do is get Tommy to come on his Warlock and duel us, and cast Curse of Recklesness (ignore fear effects for 2 mins). It's the old epic hunter questline trick for killing the disguised demon in Silithus.

    Four wasps, haha...ouch. Was it in the south, by where the Wolvar have that elite wolf cornered?
