A Hunter’s Friends: The Rares Edition

Therm with Cerulean

Therm with Cerulean

Having race-changed Versebelg the Troll into Thermalix the Goblin, I find that I’m relearning and enjoying playing a huntard again.  I’ve been spending more time on Therm than on Mech, and have passed several important milestones: OSHEEYIT I kited stuff successfully without dying, and OMFG rare pets!  (What will happen to Centina the hunter, you ask?  I remade her as a mage, and I retamed Pogeyan while Thermalix was in Stranglethorn to complete the Nesingwary quests.)

What’s super amazing is how helpful two guildmates in particular are.  Caliverne and Sunblood are, I think, rares too, in their own right.  Caliverne, for example, happened to be out in Scholazar farming cooking ingredients.  He saw Aotona, and “Have Group Will Travel”-ed Thermalix there on the spot to tame.  Sunblood voluntarily purchased mucho alcohol to keep Caliverne sane during The Long Stalk for Skoll and showed up whenever and whereever he was needed.  I think we camped a total of eight hours or so, six and a half of which were on one day.  The awesome thing is: I didn’t even have to ask them to help me.  Once they knew I wanted Skoll, they were out in Storm Peaks looking for him long before I even realized they were in Northrend.  (While Sunblood’s dream of attempting to sheep Skoll did not come to pass, I think he’ll forgive me for it.)

Too excited to type right.

We settled on “Stormstrike.”

Thermalix probably owes both of them shares in her soul by now.  There is a slight snag in that she did sell all the shares in her soul to Mechalis in exchange for more gold to transmog with.  She made things like this:

Transmog: Mustard, Ketchup and Pickles

The GM said it looked like WonderWoman.
Therm had been going for “condiments.”

She ran out of money to make her weapons match, but there wasn’t anything good on the Auction House block anyway.  Mechalis is totally not sure how she feels about this particular outfit.  She did force Therm to transmog herself a new getup (see a bit of it in the Skoll shots above, better ones later), claiming that her hotpants were causing shares in her soul to fall.

There You Go Again

HAY DERE FRIEND!

HAY DERE FRIEND!

For some reason, I always imagine Anacona Chickens as being happy about everything, until it’s too late.

Public Service Announcement: Caliverne is Awesome

Caliverne wins the Awesome Award!

Caliverne wins the Awesome Award!

Caliverne, a fellow guild member from Darkside of Whimsical, has more than twice over earned the Awesome Award.  First, he helped Centina find her beloved Gulliver.  But he truly went above and beyond when he helped Centina camp for Pogeyan, the shiny cat Fire Spirit of the trolls in Northern Stranglethorn.  Centina has about as much patience as a two year old, so the process was not easy.  (Thank God there were no round rocks anywhere in the area, or else I would have had Noblegarden flashbacks.)

Hunting Pogeyan

Hunting Pogeyan
Many a person’s sanity perished during the long hunt.

But thanks to Cal and his amazing endurance and/or macro that targets Pogeyans only, success was had!  Versebelg happens to have one rare pet (Nuramoc), but that was out of sheer luck, as some guildies were passing by and happened to see it.  This was the first time any of my girls ever camped out for anything other than Noblegarden. By the time Pogeyan actually showed, I was a drooling, babbling wreck.  Caliverne had to point out that there was an enormous cat with fiery eyes standing right behind me.

 

POGEYAN IS REAL OMG OMG OMG
