Liloo swimming in Stormwind lake

I have bags and banks filled up with items I simply need to keep, some for fun, some for handy and some for sentimental reasons. I could make a top 10. At least. But, don’t worry, I wont. For now. If I could only keep one item I would kiss my Piccolo Flute goodbye. I would shard my first epic weapon and wipe my tears on Robe of Insight. All while my Disco Ball would play its last serenade. All this to keep my Hook of the Master Angler, a trinket that turns you into a pirhana!

I was a hunter in my late 30’s and had run out of quests in Strangletorn Vale.  Determined to get to 40, which used to be the magical moment for the very first mount, I killed gorillas. Nothing else. Only gorillas. I killed them all, then looted them and skinned them, and by that time they had all respawned so I went back to killing. Just writing about it makes it hard not to fall asleep. Anyway, it must have been a Sunday since the npc’s announced that the fishing contest had started. I had never heard of this, but decided that I would give the gorillas a break and give it a try. I went from pool to pool and filled my bags with Tastyfish and ran back to Booty Bay, not sure what was going to happen. Well, I won the contest and, slightly confused, I chose the trinket as reward. This was my first trinket ever, and first in row of now many items that are just for fun.

I have tried winning this competition many times later, since I would like the “salty” title on my shaman. Ready in good time, with water walking, fishing outfit and lures, but with no luck. Someone always faster. So must have been very lucky back then. Any items that are special to you in-game?

I haven’t posted anything since the Lich King kill, I know. It was like, ok, so he is dead, now what? Well, now we do heroic modes, but not really much to say about it, it’s harder and well…heroic!

Trying to save up some money for Cataclysm (which btw now has an official release date, 7th of December), will need gold to level up 8 different professions. Was fishing in Grizzly Hills the other day, to get mats for Fish Feasts and also try get the Turtle I wrote about here, when it hit me that Grizzly Hills is pretty beautiful, and how nice it would have been to actually wander around there. Which made me feel a bit stupid thinking that, since the forest is 10 minutes away from my house. I spend way too much time in this game, but I guess everyone who play WoW would agree on that at some point. Anyway, I decided to bring Ella and drove til the road stopped and walked into forest from there. We spent 4 hours all together, the air was clear and fresh, the colours so pretty in red, orange and yellow all over.

Not sure how legal this is….

I feel like a real slacker for not doing this more often, whole Oslo is surrounded by forest and beautiful nature, and here I am wishing I would wander the forests of WoW. /Lichslap for me! Definitely going to try do this more often, and it really helps going with a puppy who gets overexcited and extremely happy over seeing a stick, a bush or simply a rock in the path.

Ella found several treasures she wanted to bring home as souvenirs. Some more…random…than others *cough*
