It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

A letter from Maeri and Leoghan

Dear Anna and Siha:

What the nine hells were you thinking giving Aelflaed this idea that she can collect enough herbs for Annylais and her future fiddling with this Inscription business?  Do you have no care for those of us that have to carry that silly Paladin – and all her armor – from here to the far side of the Nether?  Since you both posted those guides for finding and stashing all those herbs, we’ve not had a minute’s rest.

Every day this week she’s had us running somewhere else – full speed over to that funny looking plant, screeching halt, she digs it up, shoves it in one of our packs, and then we’re off at full speed again.  Yesterday she spent HOURS tearing around Felwood and Azshara, only to give up there and go to Hellfire.  Do you have any idea how heavy 250 Dreamfoil and Mountain Silversage plants are?

And then, just when we show up at an inn and think it might be over, and we’ll get to go have a snack and a rest, she mails them all off to someone else and heads right back out again. We’re so tired, we’re not even getting to roll around in the grass after she takes our saddles off in the evenings!  We just go straight to bed.

It’s just not fair, and you two obviously had no thought for those of us that have to carry all these adventurers around on your wild goose chases… er… wild plant chases.

So next time you get some crazy idea to show people where to find all these insane herbs – or anything else for that matter – remember us, their noble steeds, and how much we suffer for it.  And… uh… tell them to give us extra treats!  Maeri likes carrots, apples, and beer; Leoghan prefers warp burgers.

  3. Dear Maeri and Leoghan,
    While I can not wholy commiserate your tale, as I do not carry anyone around on my back all day long, I do know somewhat how you feel. As a feral druid I run and fly around under my own power most of the time, and so rarely use my own feline carrier. In fact, I suspect she’s gotten too fat and lazy by now to carry me.

    However, I, too, have been collecting herbs, and believe me, it’s no less tiring when I have to rush around holding those things in my mouth for hours, getting whacked on by monsters who seem to think I have no right picking their ‘flowers’. At least you get to go away when the fighting starts.

    So, my fine feathery and furry friends, I do hope Anna will be finished soon. But I do promise this, that there will be an end, and that end is near.

    Sadly, I must now suggest you start working on your winter pelts, as I suspect you will be expected to carry Anna into the coldest reaches of Azeroth in nearly a month’s time. I hear that this very minute, they are building the ships that will carry us all to the North.

    Your friend in fuzziness,
    Faleene, feral druid

  4. Haha, I’ve been farming for the significant other lately since he’ll be the one training in Inscription. I farm Outland with his shaman and then jump onto my rogue to gather the lowbie herbs. Sadly, the rogue is still without a mount having not reached the appropriate level, so she’s working entirely on the merit and power of her own body at this point! Hajnal probably sent the same damned letter to me, though she wouldn’t be requesting for apples, carrots, or warp burgers — maybe a pint or two instead?

  5. Masterfully written!
