I can’t sleep until I post this!
So, as you may recall, I had visions of dancing bears. Because I often suspect that the only person you can trust to show up is yourself, I went ahead and made a wee little Alliance druid named Thirabel. Her sole goal in life was to achieve bear form and /dance on that statue in front of the Keep, because if that isn’t a worthy goal, I don’t know what is. This, of course, was slightly more effort than anticipated. 1.) I’ve never successfully leveled a druid past … oh, maybe level 23 or so, and 2.)
OMFG! OW DYING SHEEYIT CRAP OH GAWD leather isn’t as protective as plate, or having someone wearing plate tanking for you.
Deaths happened, possibly due to a lack of shoes since none dropped and she was too broke to buy them, or alternately due to how Thirabel left Teldrassil a little too early for comfort. (It could also be related to the fact that I don’t know WTF I’m doing when it comes to druids. CASTING? CAT!? WHAT??) Finally, despite the troubles, bearform was achieved.
Do you see the demented glee in her glowing eyes? Of course you do. It was a gleam that was somewhat diminished by the realization that, at level 15, she had absolutely no way of getting up to the top of that damn statue. But all was not lost. Her friend Tab was inspired by Thirabel’s dogged devotion to the beardance cause, and she pulled out her old Alliance characters to save the day.
A quick stop by Niremere enabled Thirabel to use a warlockian mode of travel to transport herself to the top of the statue. Let the beardancing commence! At first, Thirabel and Tab thought that people visiting the King might take notice of 1 and a half bears dancing on top of the statue and choose to dance themselves. That didn’t seem to be working, however, so they had to change their tactics.
Yeah, we totally put out repeated calls in General and Trade for bears, people who wanted to /dance, and/or assist in adding to the AWESOME now taking place. As it happens, if you shout it, they will come.
But the good times could not last forever. No, people began to depart, and so Thirabel thanked them and tried to write down their names. (Thanks to Overide, Nemox, Lilliee, Vaeleria, Christafer, Klimma, Kheane, Tiiranes and others of Wyrmrest Accord. And thanks, Tab, for making it possible for Thirabel to get up there in the first place.)
Now what do I do with her?
