The best guildies are the ones who point out the stuff you absolutely have to know. Like the fact that there’s a, er… wearable bird in the trees of the level 3 garrison.
All the cool kids are wearing one. Oh, and that’s not a huge feather sticking out of Pepe’s butt, it’s Memento’s old Warlock-quest scythe which I still transmog all her weapons to. Because SCYTHE.
The rest is just gravy. Like this silly tree-chopping contraption. Large timber shall be mine, all mine – which is just as well, because I’m out of garrison resources. And money.
I couldn’t wait to make the Elekk Plushie battle pet, and as soon as I had 50 hexcloth I immediately
wasted used them on that. And he’s cute… until you summon him. Then he’s just creepy.
He doesn’t move, see, and that’s the problem. He just sort of stands there, staring at you with those pink button eyes. And then you move, and he stays where he was, and you forget all about him… until you stop again somewhere and suddenly he’s there, right behind you, staring at you with those pink button eyes.
It ain’t natural, I tells ya.
This is what happens when you put your blog on life-support: WordPress disses you in the summaries.
I’m old, and even *I* don’t think 2010 is recent…
But it’s all grist for the reborn blogging mill – if I were that cut-up about it, I probably would be sniveling in a corner instead of posting my shame for the world to see. Next thing you know I’ll be posting opinions about gaming again or something crazy like that.
A good sense of humour starts with oneself, I find. There’s your aphorism for the day.
I want this in real life.
More Samhain greetings from the monsters and NPCs of The Secret World…
And the Bogeyman, who finally ate my claws and bought the Henderson farm.
Possibly the creepiest monster I’ve encountered so far (granted I’ve not been farther than the Blue Mountains).
Last but not least, reliving Innsmouth Academy with Mys — I’d forgotten how funny some of the NPC dialogue can be. Gotta hate those accidentally-intoned death curses…
Personally I think he’s being a bit judgy there, but what do I know.
In other news, the Bogeyman handed me my ass AGAIN yesterday. I’m not sure I ever finished that quest after all. Not sure I want to. We’ll try fists and bad attitude as weapons next time.
Happy Hallow’s Eve…
I always love finding references to other things – movies, books, in this case other MMOs – in games. This one made me laugh out loud.
What’s the GW2 equivalent of Men in Black Vans?
