As I wrote the post on the Figure Prints pet offerings, I logged on Vikund to see if I had some that were less viable to be cast in resin and placed on my desk. I was able to come up with three pretty easily.
The quest to get the Westfall Chicken is one of the great goofy quests in WoW.
Vikund was in Ironforge (He was still doing Brewfest stuff last night. He did eventually collect enough tokens to buy back his Brewfest regalia, so he has that going for him.) so I put him on the bird to Westfall and finished up the previous post.
When I went back to the WoW window, I was in Westfall and some horde guy was trying to kill the flight master.
Now, traditionally, I only see this happening when I am logged on with a low level alt and I have to sit there and take it or die quickly.
But this time around I had my level 80 retribution paladin out and the offender was a level 77 Tauren druid in cat form. Time to attack!
I don’t know if this guy saw me there AFK or not, but he certainly noticed me when I jumped in with a consecrate. He went to travel form and ran for it. I jumped on my mount and chased him down, stunned him with the hammer of justice, and then started through my rotation until he was dead. I didn’t even get to exorcism.
And, as a bonus, he waited a bit before he released, so I managed to get the Make Love, Not Warcraft achievement by giving him a /hug.
Then I went and got my Westfall chicken.
All in all a very satisfying run.
