Phat Loot Phriday: Branch of Nordrassil


Throgg waggled a long stick in front of the worgen. "C'mon, doggy. You can do it. You can fetch it!" Putting his entire body into the throw, Throgg hurled the stick down the hill. The branch bounced a few times before falling into the waters of Booty Bay. Lolegolas rounded the corner just in time to see the splash.

"By Amy Pond's flawless skin!" the blood elf exclaimed in a gasp. "Throgg! What the ... why would you ... "

For his part, the worgen druid simply sipped from a teacup (pinky properly extended) and turned the page of his book.

Throgg blinked. "What? It was just a stick!"

"That was a Branch of Nordrassil," Lolegolas yelled. "It's part of a quest to get a legendary weapon! And you were trying to use it as a fetch stick?"

The druid blinked as he, once again, turned a page. "If it helps, I had no interest in chasing it."

"Shut up, Spot!" the blood elf shrieked.

"My name's not Spot."
