The (not-so) wee lad has been bugging me for a bit now to not only play WoW, but specifically get to try out my Demon Hunter. So today I gave him the chance and I thought I’d give him an old raid to run in the process. It would give him a good chance to play around and also I could explain the link a bit, since I took him to The Black Temple. He asked how Illidan betrayed people and I explained that as an Illidari I technically didn’t exist when the time of this raid was happening. Well, thanks to Blizzard I did but I was on the other side of things. Eh, I’ll just stop before we all get a headache.
After briefly forgetting how the place worked, I got him back on track and headed in the right direction. He took down almost everything with ease, though I had to show him how the Shade of Akama fight worked and the Mrs. had to remind us both how to engage Illidan.
Now let’s pause a moment to consider the factors here. We have basically a new player, and we have a new class that was essentially born in the temple. You know where this is going, right? Sure enough.
For however many times I’ve run Black Temple, I’ve only seen one drop three times. And now two of those were family members. Granted, I never really wanted them until the Demon Hunter. Then I pondered the idea a little more closely. My son only half understood the excitement until I explained orange text and such. Then he was pretty damn proud of himself.
Before he headed off to bed he wanted to see how it looked on her. She just needs the other one now, as far as we can tell.
Of course, no one expected the picture that came next.
