I remember, back in the day of candle stick jumping and shooting marbles down at the candy store to pass the time. Although on this particular day I had stayed in. As I rolled out of bed, a number of dirty socks and ho-ho wrappers fell off me in a large pile, I grunted, and rolled down the stairs to my computer, only bashing my head twice on that day.That day sticks out in my memory because of the electric feeling that pulsed through the air. Or maybe that was the live wire outside my room, oh well. As I reached my computer desk I inhaled deeply, the air reeking of moldy month old wrappers and spitoons. I reached for the power button on my computer, but stopped for a split second, contemplating the consequences of what I was about to do. I knew it was crazy from the second it crossed my mind. The only two words that I could think about were OOZELING and DISGUSTING (2 of my favorite things put together, what could be better?). I began to get a little giddy, hopping around wearing my coveralls and shrieking like a young girl, and this was just at the idea of the disgusting oozeling? I immediately logged into my World of Warcraft account and selected my Tauren Druid from the character selection screen, my palms sweating like the beaches of southern Boliva. My greasy hair hung into my eyes, causing them to become irritated and red, of course I didn't mind, I had bigger fish to fry.In the distance, I could hear my friend and neighbor Derrick screaming my name outside of my house. "JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYKKKKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEE". I put him on my ignore list and moved on. "WHAT?" I screamed as I logged in and found out I had set my hearthstone to Silithus. The veins in my neck bulged out and the blood in my temples throbbed as though I had just been held up at gun point. I had to face the facts and finally decided to fly to Orgrimmar, one of the longest flights at the time. As I cruised over the Tanaris Desert, the sand flew into my eyes and clogged my ears, which allowed for plenty of meditation during the flight. I finally arrived about 30 hours later, landed and cleaned the sand out of my orifices, while jumping in circles to increase my CPS (cleaning per second). As I walked outside to the Zeppelin tower on my 60% speed kodo, I let loose a string of cusses longer then any heard in the past of humanity, including A Christmas Story. I had just missed it, and so I prepared my wrist cutting machine in case it took longer then 5 minutes. I decided to put a record on, and the first one I had grabbed from my garbage can where I keep my 45 rpms just happened to be Wu-Tang Clan. A solid choice, considering the killer mood I was in. I put the record on and took off my pajama shirt so I could rock the Wu-Tang tattoo on my chest (Derrick had 2pac). The shoddy built in speakers on my record player busting out the vocals and the beats, my mood began to improve. Finally, after about 3 hours (or so it seemed) the Zeppelin arrived, and I boarded while spamming /salute to everyone I saw.Then, out of nowhere, the worst thing that could have possibly happened did. I had always thought myself very smart and clever and a good World of Warcraft player, so I always had my Player vs. Player flag on, just in cast any noobs wanted to get steamrolled. A Night Elf Hunter named Legomyego started casting an AIMED SHOT. I didn't know what to do, I had froze up, I was drooling on the keyboard and completely useless, his pet who had been stealthed attacked me from behind with the Claw attack and all I could do was roll my face on my keyboard, luckily I somehow hit Bear Form and gained immunity to Polymorph effects. It also increased my melee attack power by 120, armor contribution from items by 370%, and mt Stamina by 25%. By this point, I was losing badly, the few seconds when I had froze up had almost lost me the fight, and at the last second, a miracle from Buddha, the hunter lagged out, and ran right off the edge of the zeppelin. I knew I had been the superior fighter and /yelled FOR THE HORDE LOLO! He hadn't released his corpse so I know he heard me and wanted to /wrists right there. The zeppelin was moving now and headed straight for backwater country, Brill. I decided to take a short nap so I headed downstairs and into the cabin, and typed /sleep.Who knows how long later, I could hear the stampede of feet above my head, and the first thing that crossed my mind was that we were under attack, but then I realized it was a herd of lowbies seeking exit out of the worst starting area in the history of WoW. Agamand Mills? More like Stupid Mills. Anyways, being an adventurer I launched myself off the side of the zeppelin and landed, taking 3732 damage, a good omen. As I turned my Teal Kodo towards Western Plaguelands a single thought ran through my mind, O jad mi en tow ski ski. Which roughly translates to "Wow, I'm jonesing for pulled pork". No time for that, I put my Carrot on a Stick trinket on to gain 3% mounted speed, and put auto-run on, directly for the Bulwark. While traveling, the Wu-Tang record ended, and the needle was simply riding the middle of the old fashioned CD. I traded Wu-Tang for Ready to Die and continued on my way, almost to the Lights Hope Chapel in Eastern Plaguelands.As I dodged in between the level 55 gargoyles and little dog things I decided to have a Trix yogurt, and enjoyed one. Soon after, I arrived, charging my way to the slime area. I dropped in and hit cat form, immediately gaining melee attack power by 40 plus Agility. It also protected me from Polymorph effects and allowed the use of various cat abilities. I was spamming claw and rip, dominating all slimes in my path and crossing my fingers (as best I could, my fingernails were about 4 inches long at the time) for an Oozing Bag. Around the third time through the slime area, I had gathered about 10 Oozing Bags, and decided to stop the suspense and open them. I was sweating and swearing profusely at this point, my nose stuffed full of terrible smelling BO. I opened the first one, it contained 2 Greater Mana Potions and 1 Wintersbite, but no Disgusting Oozeling. The second bag had a number of Liferoot and Sungrass herbs. This continued until the eighth bag that I opened. My eyes popped straight out of my head and landed on my desk with a plop, and my ears fell off, as I had finally achieved my life dream, I had aquired a Disgusting Oozeling pet. A steady stream of OMGZ ZOMGZ OMGS! was falling out of my mouth, and I brought the pet out. The green aura covered my Tauren Druid like a minx coat. The excitement was too much, I started vomiting pure rainbows and singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow.That was the point in time when I decided I wanted a real life Disgusting Oozeling, so I made a jelly ball, tied it to a leash, and painted myself green.This is the tale of the forgotten adventure of a Tauren Druid on a mission. Mission Impossible.
I have to say that my most epic battle was when I was holding the bridge right before the Dwarven camp in Alterac Valley BG. For the most part it was just myself a level 70 elemental shamman and a druid holding the bridge. I remeber that the best part was when 5 level 68-70 horde rushed us and were firsted replused by my Thunderstorm followed by an massive amount of chain lighntings and stonebind totems. After my initial attack the Druid shapeshifted into bear form and clawed the staggering hordies to pieces. Thus the two of us prevented an early take over of the main camp and in the end we won the day through a long, bloody battle of attrition with the Horde. Possibly the most epic battle I'll ever see in my lifetime :PGlory to the Brightsword Enclave!
I remember, back in the day of candle stick jumping and shooting marbles down at the candy store to pass the time...This post gets earlier in the list every time.
Amani War Bear - CheckBig Blizzard Bear - Check (it was Epic!)Black War Bear - CheckBig Battle Bear - ?Bear fashion show. Coming soon! :)
The most "Epic" loot I have ever gotten would have to be when the First Mate Hat finally dropped for me. I was farming for so long I started from the max rep you start with the Bloodsail Buccaneers (Haven't done any quests to reduce my standing with them prior to farming) until I couldn't lose anymore rep with them. By that time I was heading back to Booty Bay when one of the casting attacked me. I went ahead and took it out. And there it was. Although I did manage to grab about five more of the hats off of the Auction House for twenty gold pieces or less during the five or so months after I looted the first one.Also, that was a great read there, Robert!
My Brewfest Kodo. Why? Because my wife won the roll, and passed it to me, and hasn't let me live it down since. I owe her.Gear is replaceable: mounts last forever.
My most epic drop was in Sethek halls. i was with my dad and had did the summon boss. It was my second time in there and the mount had dropped :D! my dad was really mad about it because it was my second time and he had done it a bunch of times on his warrior just to get it. till this day he nags me to get to 80 so we can 2 man it for the mount. That,to this day, is the most epic drop i have gotten. http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32768.
My most epic drop ever would most likely be: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30889. What made this so "epic" to me was a couple things. Number 1, it was a great shield. Number 2, I had about.. 2 months prior passed the Gruul shield to a player. And finally, I was a tank for this fight, but not the main tank. And, our guild was just learning, it was our first kill. I was stationed in the back, tanking the adds. Sadly, that is out of range of loot on the boss. So, after learning the fight, it was another 3-day wait on the GMs to actually get that shield for me. It was a long process, including the downing Kael'thas, Vash, and much more to get this shield. And I used it all the way up until level 80. Epic.
The most epic loot was doing the epic warlock mount quest. Back before primal this and heroic that. Gathering the money for materials and then getting a rag-tag team of a feral druid and two warriors to do good ol' dire maul at 4 am.
The most epic piece of loot I have received would be my Tier 7 shoulders, They look amazing.
I would have to say that finally managing to get around to doing Onyxia (yesterday, in fact) after completely missing the entire slew of pre-BC raids by starting WoW at about the time my server was doing the AQ opening stuff and not managing to even get 60 by the time BC came out... With 6 people, all at least 70, it was a breeze. (although we did die to deep breaths on the first try cause only one person had ever fought her before...) After downing her, I finally got to know why Onyxia was considered such an awesome boss back in the day. Also, I got what I came for, a Judgement Crown! Now to run MC and BWL till my eyes bleed for the rest of the set, which will serve no purpose but appearance...
I was farming wolves in Duskwood for meat and to level up my skinning. The wolves were tough, and around my level, or higher, but I wanted to stick with it and about 30 or so in, a blue sword dropped! I couldn't believe it! It was a perfect two-hander for my Pally and I had it equiped for quite a while.
The most epic loot I'd ever gotten would definitely have to be my Swift Brewfest Ram.I worked every day like clockwork during the first year of Brewfest earning and saving tickets as best I could. It was so close to the end of the event when I finally had enough tickets and purchased mine. I quickly dubbed him Spanky, in honor of the quests that granted me him. I have never ridden another ground mount since.Even now that they seem to be significantly more common, it doesn't matter to me. Spanky was the first special thing I ever earned in game and he will forever mean that much to me.It's just unfortunate I've since changed main characters. Now for an even more epic mount for my new main~
Pet Rock was my most epic loot....till it went on the carpet, he soon disapered.
I'll consider it an epic moment when I get these $%^&ing quests for RFD and SM done.
/ponderIf only I hadn't traded the time machine I invented for a 20-slot herb bag when I was in college... I would have the Flag of Ownership and an answer to this riddle. I'm sure I did deserve it more. After all, when I use Shadow Word: Death to steal an HK I'm actually pwning at least 2 people, only one of them an enemy player.
this bear would put up a good fight against my Muckbreath the baby crocolisk.
My most epic drop was when I got the sonic spear for my dwarf hunter..........oh wait that never happened......10 times and no spear.........Some day I will get it though and then it will be my most epic drop
The most epic piece of Loot I have won has got to be the Big Battle Bear that I won from WoWhead on December 9th 2008. That you so much WoWhead =D I love it.
No drop I've ever won compared to how I felt when I finally landed the Nat Pangle Fish Terminator. When I finally retired it after my first quest in Outlands I stashed it in the bank, where it remains to this day.
