So The Pally is on a major quest for animal love thanks to that squirrel achievement. As an off shoot of his questing for frogs and things to love indecently, I find myself /loving the occasional bypassing critter… you know just if they happen to be in my path.
Now normally I am not a critter killer (except maybe that one shameful time when I first discovered the blood elf starting area upon release of the burning crusade and I tried to beat the ‘cat-spawn’ timer… talk about a field of kitty corpses.) So normally I avoid critter killing because it leads to embarrassing moments like magical stun roaches (aye that has happened to me too) which turn out to actually be bloody aspect of the cheetah, or wasted cooldowns, or really FUBABed pulls or just general bad karma. Hmmm it occurs to me I’ve become in-game superstitious eh.
So normally killing critters is below me and considered something a bouncy-bouncy rogue will do in an instance.
But now I find if I slash love a beastie I am compelled to kill it. No really, I loved a bunny the other day and then ‘BANG’ my trigger finger just kinda went off and I Aimed-Shot it to death. Now as a hunter I guess I can kinda maybe pass it off as a string of coincidences. After all I had the bunny targeted, squirrels are a one shot kill, and it’s kinda easy for a hunter to pop a shot unintentionally at a deer…maybe.
But then I had to start a death knight didn’t I? Couldn’t resist out of sheer curiosity and ooo-boy the death knight starting area and quests feel like what the whole ‘ALT’ thing was meant to be about – fast levels, interesting speedy quests, great story line and all your gear handed to you in a lovely matching piece by piece set. So of course I played death knight till I found my freedom… a freedom which somehow lead to me being in the lowbie zones of Eversong Woods, hooves in a bubbling brook, shirtless and /loving a toad.
Which I promptly ‘Death Grip’ towards me and stab to death.
Yeah… denial is a lot harder as a Death Knight, that death grip is darn flashy.
So what’s with my new critter killing fetish?
- Could I as a hordie be embarrassed to be making love to the wildlife? – even if the only witness is said wildlife.
- Is it some kinda flash back to a past relationship? “I … love you… honey. Ahh you know what, bugger it, this sort of thing never ends well for me, I think you have to die now.”
- Or is it just that old saying sparking off my sadistic side? – heh you always hurt the ones you love.
In any case lets finish this with a music video eh:
