Tribute for a fallen friend

We have all met that guy at some point in our life. The one that seems so nice all the time, and to everybody. The guy that nobody could find a bad word to say about, the one who is friends with everyone.

You may indeed have one in your guild right now. He is the guy that says hello and goodnight each day. The one that always offers to help you achieve a goal even though he will have no gain from doing so. He is the guy that can jump between inner circles of different groups of people, the link between the masses and the glue which holds them together. One who is always positive no matter how many times you make mistakes.

For many of us, that guy was Xent.

Keep calm and garrison on

In honour of the Lunar year I decided to update my transmog to fit with the theme and revisit the Shrine and the Valley, if only to force myself out of the garrison.

It appears that in my absence Yoon has quite forgotten me and my poor farm was looking a bit worse for wear. I guess this is what happens when you leave a drunk in charge! Jogu was found slumped in the lake and poor Shaggy was looking a bit of a matted state.
I’ll admit that it was nice to have a fly around again to stretch my dragon’s wings but this was a land that awarded you Easter eggs with flight unlike Draenor which would just be dwarfed with the use of it. And unlike the many in the flying camp, in the land of garrisons I really don’t miss it.

Love is in the Garrison?

Happy New Lunar Year \o/

It’s time to get those fireworks out and give the pretty dresses an outing once again whilst we pay tribute to the Elders…..What do you mean you have the achievement and don’t want to leave your Garrison?

Well Xingli is happy to be out of the garrison

Touring Arak on Justin’s chopper – Part 2

To recap,  found this abandoned bike on the beach:

Well it looked abandoned to me

Well it looked abandoned to me

And so far Justin has not come forward to claim said bike. I did try leaving a message with Falrogh but he did seem a little tipsy at the time so I also left a notice with the Explorers league. Ok so they may have made it into a paper aeroplane…but I did try!

Ok so what did I find?

Firstly  I found Shrooms! .. And not just any mushrooms but under water ones. Huge sets of mushrooms under the sea.

‘Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter’

And then there were the disco shrooms:

Or is it a UFO?

And the glowing shrooms amongst the glowing quest items (which I didn’t have a quest for)

Shrooms

That glowing outlined lump was not lootable tut

Ok enough shrooms, but I felt they needed a mention somewhere as someone has put some effort into them.

After taking the bike for a ride along the beach I found the remains of a Goblin car crash:

One very Hotrod

And upon further investigation I also found a little goblin camp not far away. Outside the house I found somewhere to repair, not as cute as Jeeves though eh.

The original Jeeves

The owner of this hut also shared the same love of bananas to adorn the walls. Is this a thing? do all Goblins love bananas? Hmmm

Ba na na ba na na na

 

And yet another cutesy crafted lamp, however the choice of artwork is slightly different in taste hehe

Goblin pin-up

The Goblin that lived here also had his very own fighter planes, albeit a scared looking one.

Plane

Fighter planes are not all fearless

People really do seem to discard their vehicles easy these days, I found this little buggy along the beach strip

Love the artwork on it though, reminded me of the shark from the Brawlers Guild

Sharkbrawler

Shark with frikkin lazer beams

Found even more goblin carts and supplies..

but apparently this one was not to be tampered with. As I found out after being jumped by this rare Goblin.

goblinrare

A rocket that seems really happy to shoot you in the face!

I was surprised but not as surprised as mining for some ore and having this thing pop out and try and eat me!

Treasure Boglin o.O

After killing him though he did at least leave me some nice extra loot in his pockets so I look forward to meeting a few more of these in the expansion.
