What a Long Strang Trip it’s Been!
October 30, 2009 § 1 Comment
Today I finally earned the achievement “What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been”! I had picked up the helm and sinister squashling a couple days ago, but hadn’t finished the achievement “Check Your Head”. I still had to put a pumpkin on the head of a Draenei, and wanted to wait until people in my guild were actually online. But since I don’t seem to have been online at the same time as them recently I decided I was tired of waiting. I wanted my proto-drake! So I headed to Dalaran and walked around a bit, searching for just the right Draenei. I found one, a paladin named Lewtybewts. I really got a kick out of her name, and recognized her as one of the people I had run the Headless Horseman with. So I snuck up behind her and BAM!
Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [Check Your Head]!
Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [Hallowed Be Thy Name]!
Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been]!
It was very exciting, and she was a good sport about humoring me and got excited about the cool new mount. And, I promised her screen shots, so here they are:
I’m really excited to finally be riding a proto-drake! I’ve been trying for that dang bronze one in Culling of Stratholme…but we all know how well that’s been going. So a very special thanks to Lewtybewts for being a good sport and humoring me, and for helping me wrap up a years worth of work and earn my sexy Violet Proto Drake!
As a side note, you may have noticed in my first creen shot that I’m tracking my Loremaster of Kalimdor Achievement. As of this posting, I only need 48 more quests and then it’s on to Icecrown to finish off The Loremaster!
