Rem, our big and mean and scary tank, succumbed today to the charms of an ickle bitty Draenei orphan today. We’d been meaning to grab a couple of them and do the rounds, and were scheduling it for tomorrow, but our raid fell through tonight, due to only having the one tank. Rem. Our big and mean and piggy shouldered one.
So we decided to head over to Shattrath, and see where we were headed. Except we couldn’t. Because as soon as he got his, Rem suddenly melted into gooey squishey soft stuff, contained in a metal shell. How he didn’t dribble out through the joins in it, I do not know. He practically squeed. (I’ve got to admit, I can’t help squeeing over the Draenei orphans, they are unbelieveably cute, with their cute little tails, their cute little horns, their cute little hooves, and their cute little expressions. I mean, how much cuteness IS it possible to fit in each of their pixels?!)
So we dutifully took them both out, and did the rounds. And we took pictures.
First off, we took the scenic route, and introduced them to an old favourite friend. He fell at their feet. Must have been even more overawed by the cute than Rem…
And then after a little incident, which Rem affectionately refers to as the “learn to know your limits” lesson to our pair of cuties, we reached the Portal.
After enough standing around, we decided to show them one of our favourite views in Nagrand. Well, it was on the way to where we were going next….
So we headed onwards, caught up with their brother (who wasn’t as cute), took them to see a dragon and bought them cuddly toys. And then we decided to go to the beach.
By now it was all getting a bit much for them – and us. We’d oversqueed ourselves and decided to take a relatively early night following all the fun and games. We briefly considered handing them back over to the Matron, before deciding bugger it, we wanted cute overload for another day. So we took them back to Darnassus….
And then they had a bedtime story.
It was wonderful evening, revisiting old haunts, not rushing around, but enjoying the scenery and these cute little NPCs. And did I mention OMG Teh CUTE?!
I swear, if Blizzard wants to make a killing, all they need do is set this one up as the next RMT pet…..
