Matthew Rossi's triumphant tale
about his wife's taming of the elusive Loque'nahak
, otherwise known as the Death Star pet
, reminded me of a similar scenario that happened with a guildie. This time, it was nowhere near as peaceful, nowhere near as innocent, but every bit as triumphant. See, my guildie, a Shadow Priest
, had been looking for the Time-Lost Proto Drake
in the Storm Peaks for almost a month. Every day, he'd log on and spend a few hours circling the rare mob's known path hoping to get the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto Drake
. As the mob is guaranteed to drop the mount, he wasn't the only one on the hunt.
One day, though, he got lucky and finally spotted the fantastic creature... except that it was already tagged by a Gnome Death Knight
. Instinctively, he did what any red-blooded member of the Horde would do. He Mind Controlled
the Gnome, used him to tank the drake, and when the drake was low on life, tossed the Death Knight off the edge of a cliff. One Shadow Word: Death
and a hearthstone later, the priest was in Krasus' Landing sitting atop his pretty green drake.
