I ran down to Kamagua last night to do the daily quest there to start in on Vikund’s faction with the Kalu’ak, because I am serious when I say I want that Mastercrafted Kalu’ak fishing pole you can buy when you hit exalted with their faction.
I picked up the daily quest The Way To His Heart… which involves fish and aquatic mammalian love… and ran off to do the deed when I ran into a giant fjord penguin standing on the beach.
As I got close to him, I found out he was aggro as he started attacking me. I fought back and took him down, only to get an achievement pop.
All of it happened so fast that I did not get a screen shot of any of it, but here was the achievement.
It turned out that I had run into the legendary King Ping!
He looks pretty much like the fjord penguins in the screen shots from yesterday’s post. Perhaps he wasn’t taking my penguin bombing antics lying down.
And King Ping was nice enough to drop the Egg Warming Blanket of the Invoker and an abandoned adventurer’s satchel which yielded 20 pieces of frostweave cloth and nearly 25 gold.
Not a bad reward for such a chance encounter. I will have to see if the Egg Warming Blanket of the Invoker is an upgrade for any of the casters in our group Saturday night.
