I felt like I was back in college. You remember the days, where you pulled all nighter’s to get that term paper
started finished (yeah that’s it) or otherwise gave no regard to your circadian rhythm. Approximately 3.5 hours after launch, I woke up (and by “woke up” I mean i was startled awake by a major coughing fit), stretched, grabbed a cherry cola and fired up my fossilized laptop. The time is 3:40am and I have roughly 3 hours to play before I have to get ready for work.
At 3:40am PDT, there were roughly 12-15 guildies online. I couldn’t really tell because that crazy bug is back where it doesn’t display all guild members and it pretends the guild bank doesn’t exist. So in my pre-caffeinated half-asleep state, I get the quest to get onboard a boat at Bladefist Bay. What? The same boat that took me to the underwater zone from hell? That’s what the quest says. So I fly out over Org, over to Bladefist bay and I see a boat. But there’s nobody there to talk to. The hell?
Me: /g So I’m on the boat where is the foo I’m supposed to talk to?
Cali: You don’t see a “?”
Cali: Are you in Azshara?
Me: The fuck am I supposed to be in Azshara for? The quest says Bladefist Bay
Cali: Go to your Azshara map you’ll see the ?
Me: Oh there it is! … the fuck?
Cali: Fly up to the boat in the sky
Me: OH! I’m supposed to take a Zep. Well.. gee that makes sense being horde and all… WHY THE FUCK DOES IT SAY BLADEFIST BAY??
Oh yeah, me without caffeine
first thing in the morning in the middle of the fucking night isn’t a very pretty sight. I get all nerd-ragey, cuss like Gene an anonymous truck driver and type in more shouty capitals. I did say it was my deadly sin, didn’t I??
Anyway, technically the zeppelin was OVER bladefist bay. Quest descriptions need to be a little more specific. Just sayin’. Luckily my guildies without a life that had been playing for 3 hours already already wowhead-ed it and passed their infinite wisdom on to me. *yawwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnn* (guzzles down some more soda)
So I’m on the zep! weee! After the cut scene and we make it over to Pandaria, I see YELLOW DOTS! ALL THE YELLOW DOTS! I must farm yellow dots!!!! Without thinking, I swan dive off the zeppelin. *splat* (oops) As I run back to my corpse, another druid jacks the flower. Rawr. Oh, so I see a ?. OH SHIT, I’m supposed to turn it in ON THE ZEPPELIN. And I can’t fly! Ooh… yellow dot! I GOT ONE! Reluu points out there’s a red beam of light that can teleport me back to the zeppelin. *whew* crisis averted.
So after doing a bunch of quests and kitty-clawing 4-5 mobs at a time, we decide to try the 5-mans. Four MT-ers (Reluu, Yakk, Symoon and me) and a pug tank. Temple of the Jade Serpent is the first one that pops. It’s 4:45am. Never been in the place and I’m healing. Somehow I think this can’t be good. I yawned my way through it, wasn’t entirely sure what was going on but we made it look easy nonetheless. Got dungeon quests done, tank got gf aggro, so the 4 of us que’d again.
This time we got the Brewery. All I can say is… what the fuck did I just run through? I feel like I was dragged through Tim Burton’s version of Hello Kitty. No clue what the bloody hell was going on. I think I innervated myself once. I think Symoon stood in bad and died once. I think there was a mutant rabbit. I’m not entirely sure. I just… I don’t even….
In 3 hours, I got 51% of the way to level 86. I’m going to get home from work and
Reluu half the guild will be level 87-88. Oh well.
