Last night was a really good night for LBR. It was casual, it was fun, and actually it was relatively quick. We took down three dragons in about an hour. Malygos was the only one that gave us trouble. We wiped on him once and then it was flawless (save for him REALLY liking Liouxpold and hitting him five times in a row. Yeah, I died). Kudos to Healblade/Flagsworth. After finally getting his Raven Mount earlier in the day, he won the roll on the Twilight Drake Sartharion dropped. He told me beforehand if he won it he would give it to Magik, but the latter wanted no part of it. We all agreed two mounts were a great birthday present for Flags anyway.
Speaking of presents, Helke asked me to roll a Horde character on Dawnbringer after the raid and in light of my own shenanigans and the whole story of me suddenly being in Pandaria…well I don’t trust anyone anymore. We’re all sneaky generous bastards, don’tcha know. So, I did as instructed and a short time later met up with her on my fancy new Troll.
Hey look! My suspicions were accurate. I was presented with two, er, presents. An early Christmas gift according to Helke (who’s sporting a lovely blue panther I might add…that which started the shenanigans in the first place, I suppose. Heh). So I opened them.
Yeah, that’s not only a Terrible Turnip…but also the RUBY Panther!!! Sweet merciful Illidan I almost fell over. This was about the last thing I figured she was up to. I was truly grateful and think I whispered two thirds of my friends list to share the awesome news. Alas, I have enough neglected toons that this fellow was not getting leveled any time soon.
So I got a badass ride to Orgrimmar courtesy of Helke. Yeah, she could have ported us but it wouldn’t have been nearly as fun. And I wouldn’t have had nearly as much time to share my true gratitude for the gifts. She dropped me off at the mailbox and I proceeded to roll a Death Knight (named Panthermule to the amusement of several) and quested my way down to the mailbox where I could learn the mount. Then it was time to see how it looked on a proper character.
Aw yeah. A fine specimen if there ever was one. Once again I must thank Helke for the lovely generosity, as well as the folks who made it out for the Raids last night. We had a blast, and after all of this I even hit my first Pandaria dungeon with Mrs, Magik, Flagsworth, and Tyledres. All in all good times. And if the gift stories weren’t enough, I have another one to share tomorrow…
