Choose My Adventure: Crossbows are cool


Choose the adventures of the staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

Despite the deer-in-the-headlights look on Robinemia's face, she agrees with me: Crossbows are cool.

Robin Torres as Roblinator, the goblin huntress

Ghostcrawler is missing. I can't find him anywhere. Every time I try to summon him, I get this sinister voice telling me that I don't have a pet to summon. I'm too depressed to go on. Hopefully he will reappear, or else I may be forced to spend eternity in this Town-in-a-Box, putting rockets on chickens.


Robin Torres as Robliness, the goblin priestess

If you're too sad, Roblinator hon, I'll come out and play.

Robin Torres as Peenk, the gnome priestess

I theenk the Alliance deserve some adventure time.

Robin Torres as Robinia, the troll druid


Robin Torres as Robinemia, the Forsaken mage

If someone other than Roblinator is going to adventure tonight, I think it should be my namesake.

I'm your huckleberry.

Crossbows are indeed cool.

I'm just getting the hang of being both undead and a hunter, but having a crossbow and a bat minion makes things a bit easier.

I remember my human life vividly. I remember following around this guy. He was a paladin. Maybe he still is. I don't know if he's alive or not. I hope he is. He seemed so powerful and he had the most amazing hair. He and his buddies would go hang around at towns or outposts where inexperienced Horde would be. And they would kill the people giving them tasks and selling them supplies, hoping to taunt the Hordelings into fighting them. Then he and his friends would slaughter them, usually 3 on one. His favorite place to do this was the Crossroads in the Barrens.

After these sessions, we would go back to Stormwind so he could brag ... loudly.

He never put his arm around me. He never said anything nice to me. He would just send me for more drinks and get me to pay for gryphon rides.

Once, he asked me to meet him at the Goldshire Inn for a nice quiet dinner. It turns out, I was his backup plan. When Kira Songshine showed up, they both laughed at me and I cried all the way home.

When I get experienced enough, I am going to go to the Crossroads -- if it is still there -- and wait for him. And then I'm going to shoot a crossbow bolt in his face.

Crossbows are cool.
