Hidden

Don’t think I can’t see you there waiting in the darkness, Watching me with every move I make with those eyes. You skulk in the corner thinking I cannot see you there making your way across the floor. You are the creature of cunning and oh so much patience.  I spot you sneaking past me and scale up the wall to your silken residence in the corner. You wait above me contemplating my demise as you rub your spindly legs together. The many orbs glimmer with anticipation as I turn my back to you, unaware that I am fetching the broom I had acquired to thwart you.  Scurrying across the ceiling you try to outpace the many Bristol s of the weapon chosen to smite you. Defeated, you are swept out the door and locked out. You make your way to the corner of the door and await its opening your eyes gleaming.

Troll Holidays

Everyone Loves the Holidays and finding that special tree to put in your home is a time honored tradition followed by many. The most daunting task can be Ornament hunting and it will be tricky to find the right ones to adorn your tree. Dragging out that box from storage and dusting off those old shrunken heads and an assortment of bottled treasures is nostalgic and fun with the elders and hearing those stories over and over again. No self respecting  Troll can pass up the traditional hunt for a new ornament or bottled treasure to add to the tree. Markets,  auction houses and other gatherings is a great place to find and follow that perfect head to their home so you can hex and shrink it to hang on the tree.  As for bottled treasures, using your imagination is the key and as you know Trolls love to bottle things.  So have a safe holiday and if you are not a Troll be wary of those checking  you out at the auction house or other gatherings so be smart and pack lots of shiny bottles and trinkets to distract them until the season is over.

Merry Trollmas everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving and may your stuffed frog be tasty mon.

Hexing

When it comes to hexes and voodoo, trolls are masters in that field. Frogging is the favorite method of hexing their victims and anyone they just downright don’t like.  So the next time you are invited to a trolls home for dinner be wary of  the frog legs.

Troll Raptors

Raptors are a fierce riding mount that trolls also use for hunting, moving wagons and other large objects.  These scaly creatures come in a variety of colors and sizes and are very intelligent. Raptors love to be adorned with tribal feathers and live food to chase and eat. The most prized raptor is the Razzashi raptors of Zul’Gurub for their rarity and status symbol.

Trolls love Bottles

Trolls love to put things in bottles that they collect special items in,  especially fluids like mojo and sweat.  They will even bottle venom and other unusual items just show up their neighbors that they can bottle up more items to show off.  Remember that the next time you are fighting trolls or wandering through their towns please be considerate and don’t break or steal their precious bottles.

Guild /pugging a tank in ZG

Ever have those nights when you have everyone on but a tank  in guild so you pug one. We hit up the random  Zandalari heroic and were blessed with ZG. Our Pug tank ended up being an orc warrior and was nice enough, actually typed and chatted with us. Yes people there are still those in pugs that remember how to communicate!  So our dps comprised of a death knight, rogue and Enhanced Shaman (Me) and for heals we had a druid so not to bad a combo. We one shotted all the other bosses until we reached Jin’do the Godbreaker,  and yes ranged would of been nice.  Our tank decides he wants to break open all the chains at once and then dps them down. He also had Lust macro-ed so even though I was out of mana when our healer died or dead myself  he  kept spamming the darn thing. So lets go ahead skip forward to take 6 with the same strategy we are getting tired and the druid healer decides he has to go and we pull in another druid healer from the guild and our Dk has one more attempt in him.  We of course wipe and lose our Dk and pug a warlock well that is who came through the group portal. So our Rogue suggests we do the chains one at a time and no that isn’t a go so 2 more wipes the Tank is miffed and mentions he should of left the first wipe. We convince him to destroy the chains one at a time and we win Yay! I know there are probably those out there critic inking this let me tell you it is a tough fight without a ranged especially when all the adds gather and like healers.  Healers must come pre marinated in a monster liking sauce.

If Pirates had wings Saga part 4

Mally washed up with the water and started to noticed how disheveled  her clothes looked. she found a small mirror with a tarnished silver frame and saw her short brown hair tangled and matted. No wonder the barkeep took pity on me I look awful. Pulling her fingers through the tangles she started smoothing out her hair till it fell straighter about her face. Putting the mirror closer to  inspect her face looked for more smudge marks. That will have to do for now she sighed brushing her hands against her clothes. Mally  pushed the swing door open and she peeked out to see the guys still sitting at the table. moving out of the doorway Mally quickly Walked back to her table and slid in to the old wooden booth next to Rain.

“Feel better?”  Rain asked.

“Yeah was nice to get cleaned up a little.” replied Mally.

Kreaven sneered. “This isn’t a beauty contest girly.”

Mally frowned at Kreaven. ” Just because we are in the middle of nowhere doesn’t mean I have to be uncivilized.”

Kreaven tried to hold back the laughter. “You lived on a ship not much for hygene there he snickered.”

” We still had water.”  Mally retorted.

Rain interrupted.  “Enough kiddies behave or bed without dinner.”

Gren smiled. ” That’s telling em Rain.”

Kreaven glared at Rain. “You stay out of it and….”

The barkeep approached and the converstion was cut short.   “Any thing else I can help ye with?”

“No, we are good.” Answered Kreaven.

“Thank you kind sir.” Said Mally.  “for the use of your water basin.”

“Ye are most welcome missy.”  The barkeep beamed through his chubby face.

Rain handed the barkeep a tip and he nodded thanks and waddled over to another table.

Kreaven leaned forward and hissed. “Quit wasting money.”

“Good to reward folks for  kindness.” Rain answered.

“Thanks.” Said Mally looking at Rain.

Gren piped up. “We should go check out our surroundings.”

“When it is lighter outside.” Said Rain, “Unless you can see in the dark.”

Gren nodded, folded his arms on the table and laid his head down to sleep.

Mally thought about putting her head down for a few winks but her distrust of Kreaven kept her awake. She looked out the  window for a bit and the sun could be seen just peeking over the horizon. Releaved she knew they would be on the move again looking for the ship.

“Looks like we can get moving.” Said Rain. ” the dawn is here.”

Kreaven thumps Gren on the head to wake him.

“Ow.” Gren rubbed his eyes and gave Kreaven a hurt look.

“Time to move lug.” Said Kreaven pushing Gren out of the booth.

Gren shrugged and sauntered to the door.

“Lets move girl.”  Said Rain.

Mally slid out of the booth and walked towards the door pushing it open and was met with salty air and the smell of the ocean waking with the morn.  The ground was a bit soft as she walked to the dock and the 4 climbed up the ramp to leave the harbor. Mally could see fisherman moving along the docks and shore getting ready to set sail. The boats were moored at the docks and the seaman were loading supplies and using pulleys  to get the heavy items aboard. The yellow hue on the horizon shimmered across the water and seagulls flew about the sky looking for free tidbits. The road to the village was rocky and clumped with dirt in the middle with wagon wheels deeply embedded on either side. Red and gold wildflowers covered either side of the road spreading out like wildfire. The hot sun was almost overhead by the time they reached the village.

Mally could smell fresh bread and fish cooking in this small village. Many people bustled about the market stalls and had their wares set out for sale.  Mally stopped at a small stand and was admiring a beautiful red hair ribbon with 3 yellow silk strands and a string of blue colored glass beads.

The shopkeeper smiled. “Such a beautiful lass shouldn’t be without ribbons for her hair.”

Mally blushed. “Thank you but…”

“You must be mistaken sir.” Said Kreaven behind Mally. I don’t see any pretty girls.”

Mally felt like hitting him over the head at that moment and Rain must of noticed and intervened.

“Ignor him girly he has no manners.” Rain made sure Mally stayed by his side as they began their search for information.

Mally realized Gren was missing. “Where is Gren?”

“Following his gut no doubt.” Grumbled Kreaven.

Walking through the market they find Gren at a smoked fish stall.

“There you are.” Said Rain.

Gren smiled and held up some smoked fish. “Pretty good fish here,” offering a piece.

Mally took a piece of the salty fish and it tasted wonderful, melting in her mouth.

“There is no work. Gren said, ” but to the northeast down that road he pointed east is a coastal city about 9 days travel.”

Mally shook her head. It figures the oafish one can get information she laughed to herself.

“You wouldn’t have found out where we are or what the city is called?” asked Kreaven.

“Oh yeah.” said Gren scrathing his head. ” I shoulda asked that to.”

Kreaven clenched his fists and shooed Gren off to find out those answers.  “I swear I am surrounded by idiots he ranted.”

Rain put his hand on Mally’s arm and they walked away.  “Where are you two going?” demanded Kreaven.

Rain turned and smiled at Kreaven. ” Us idiots are getting supplies and information.”

Mally giggled and looked up at Rain who winked at her.

The Tank that will not hold mobs

Yes they exist the annoying I don’t want to hold mobs because I am to busy with the one I have Tank.   I entered the holiday daily Lord Ahune dungeon  with a pug and  the warrior tank grabs a hold of the rock elemental and ignores the rest of the trash.  The other elementals head for the healer and The Shadow priest and I try to keep the mobs off the healer while the other pally dps is yelling at the tank to put up some Aura or something like that.  We get overwhelmed and of course we actually wipe on this easy dungeon boss. The Ret pally pipes up , “well you shoulda had that aura up.” I tell the ret pally that the tank is a warrior he has no pally auras. “Oh.” says the ret pally. “I thought he was a pally being a blood elf, I forgot they could be warriors.” It was funny but the healer left all mad and the shadow priest dc’d so had to replace them.

So take two on the dungeon and the Tank pulls and only grabs the rock guy. The other mobs run for the healer and the dps try to grab them. I ask the tank to grab up the other  mobs before they kill the healer he doesn’t and lets the mobs kill half the dps.  The Ret pally and I get to hang out and watch the chaos. They did manage to down him good thing the healer could root and such ^.^
