Logged on last night with just two Elders to visit to complete all the requirements for my Elder title. And according to the most excellent DruidKitty guide to Elders, I was hopeful I could stealth my way to both of them. In the end a guildie came along to help show me the way (my ability to get lost is pretty well known in my guild now, and they try to look after me as best they can!). We managed to sneak our way to both the Utgarde Keep and the Nexus Elders, and I earnt my “Elder” title. Yay 🙂
Following the “Merrymaker” disappointment, I’m trying not to get too obsessed with completing all the World Event achievements, but I do feel that the Lunar festival is a very druid-oriented festival, and I think it’s appropriate that I, as a druid, bear the Elder title. I also think it plays to our strengths, with a lot of the achievements being made a lot easier by our ability to sneak. I hate PvP, but will quite happily sneak in and out of the Horde capital cities when the need arises 😉
By the time I’d finished, it was almost bedtime, so I thought I’d head down into the Dalaran sewers and waste one lure trying to fish for the rat pet down there. I’ve been levelling my fishing in the sewers – I find it helps to have another goal, as well as trying to the pet. I’ve lost track of how long I’ve spent down there, but I’ve managed to get my fishing up to 440 so far, so it’s been quite a while. Anyway, with only 48s left on my lure I was amazed to see the thing I’ve been chasing for so long – yes, my very own giant rat pet.
I went to bed a happy druid last night 🙂
