I made good on my promise to take Lioux to the Isle of Thunder. Unfortunately I didn’t consider how undergeared he still would be. The third scenario clearly illustrated that for me, though, and so I decided to putter elsewhere. I realized I didn’t have any of the Tempest Keep pets as of yet so that seemed like a logical choice. As I was talking to Tome at the time, I asked her if she wanted to go and so off the two of us went.
Four bosses in Tempest Keep and three of them have the chance to drop a pet. Well, none of them did. I had this great theory that Kael’thas was just in a really good move and was saving our luck for the Ashes of A’lar. Yeah, theories aren’t always that practical. I followed Tome’s notion that we should then head into Molten Core. I hadn’t been there in a little while, probably once ever on Liouxpold, so I was game. Once again we had pet opportunities…and one managed to drop. We both happen to have the Ashstone Core, so even that wasn’t a huge victory.
But, can you measure fun by the RNG? If you could, I would probably be miserable playing this game. No, the fun was had when just two friends on a whim decided to go bounding off into some old content. We didn’t find any pets or great drops that either of us needed, but we did find a good time together. Just the way it should be.
