Tags: head-brain malfunction, stop slacking hawley!, World of Warcraft
Every so often, I have a head-brain malfunction.
For some completely unfathomable reason, I decided that what Herewerd really needed was a proto-drake. I’m not sure why, as I was flying around Ice Crown on my lovely armoured (fast) griffon, and I’m really not a mount collector. The griffon does me proud, and that’s enough for me.
So I went on to Wowhead, and started a short bit of research on Proto-Drakes. But bear in mind I was on a slacker’s flight of fancy; I wanted a Proto-Drake, but I didn’t want to grind for one. Earning my ride? No thanks; I wanted it now.
After a checking out a couple of entries, I was already getting bored. But then I found that one drops from a rare elite that flies around Ice Crown; the Time-Lost Proto Drake.
Yay! Just check out the handily-provided map, find mob, kill mob, loot mob, drink celebratory cup of tea, fly proto-drake!
So I flew around Ice Crown, farming herbs and ore whilst keeping an eye open for a rare-elite drrrrrragin. And whilst I did, I started noticing something I’d never noticed before…
Dotted about, in suspiciously strategic positions, were a number of other players. They looked far too much like they were… waiting.
I could have asked them why they were… waiting. Or even if they were after the same drrrrragin I was, but were even more of a slacker than I was (waiting for it to come to you is the course of action only a cad and a bounder would choose, never mind being a slacker). But I was too embarrassed, and it was a bit late, and I’d just spent 45 minutes chasing a ghost around a zone.
Still, I did get to fill a bag with herbs and ore.
