Phat Loot Phriday: Belt of the Beloved Companion


When last we left our valiant heroes, Throgg was making bad jokes. As a result, we'll be taking a slightly more serious approach this week and give those puns a chance to come off cooldown. Also, SOPA bad.

The Gilnean and Miranda both slept in their respective tents. Lolegolas chalked it up to their having been so busy getting the party safely through the dwarf lands. He tossed another chunk of wood into the campfire.

"I have something for you," Throgg said. "Got it a while back."

Lolegolas looked across the campfire at his orc friend. The two had enjoyed dozens of adventures in the last year. He couldn't escape the pressing feeling that it had to end. The doubt plagued him throughout Arathi.

Throgg pulled a long, scaled belt from his sack. The orc stared at it for a moment and tossed it across the distance between them. "Belt of the Beloved Companion. I can't use it, thought you could."

Lolegolas ran his hands along the belt. "This is a magnificent item. Room for red gems, lots of enchantments that benefit hunters." Lolegolas opened his mouth to continue but stopped.

"Might need it," Throgg said quietly. "If Abercrombie is with Sylvanas, Undercity will be hard to escape alive."

"It's not like Garrosh is going to do us any favors," Lolegolas said. He leaned back across the log, resting his elbows on the cool earth. "Is this really worth it? For a human girl?"

"No one else can," Throgg said quietly, poking the ground. "We're like a little Horde, you and I. Things we used to believe in. Just we carry it now instead of Thrall."

Lolegolas stared at the orc for a while and sighed, slipping the belt around his waist. "Lok'tar, then."
