Phat Loot Phriday: Beauty's Favorite Bone

Phat Loot Phriday Beauty's Favorite Bone
The man not named Spot stared at his bone. It was a good bone, from days gone by. He held it in his hands and heaved a huge sigh. Except for the thick glass of stout by his side, the man may have been holding back tears.

"Hey, there, buddy," the bartender said. "Why the long face?"

"This was given to me by friends," the druid sighed. "I've not see them since the last exp ... erience we had together."

"Why do you still keep it?"

"This is Beauty's Favorite Bone! It was a gift!"

"Uh huh," the bartender said, wiping down the oak counter with a moist rag. "That must be it."

"Fine," the man sighed. "You can transmog it. And look at it, it's awesome."

The bartender remained quiet.

"And I chew on it."

"Yeah, I thought so."

Item Note: Beauty's Favorite Bone is available from heroic Blackrock Caverns. All you strapping pandas should have no trouble getting it.

Picture Note: That is neither a worgen or bone. But this picture represents Not Spot in my head.

Phat Loot Phriday: Deep Thunder, Reborn

Phat Loot Phriday Deep Thunder, Reborn
"Throgg, we're supposed to be finding your dog."

"Our dog."

"Your dog," Lolegolas countered. "What are you doing in there? We're in a hurry."

"It's an outhouse," Throgg replied from behind the wooden door. "It's the Throne of Thunder. What do you think I'm doing?"

"Forging Deep Thunder," Lolegolas said. "Reborn."

"Really, little elf?" Throgg sighed.

"I've dealt with your puns for years. At this point, I'm allowed more than a few in vengeance."

"Doesn't matter. Can't make that until we get to the Lightning Forge."

"Thunder & Lightning," the blood elf commented idly. "I get it. It's like a theme. Maybe we can get a flame decal up the side of something to help illustrate the awesomeness."

"Why not?" Throgg asked. The outhouse shook a little. "You'd look good with mullet."

"I'd rather re-elect Garrosh."

The outhouse only thundered in response.

Item Note: Finally, it's the return of that old standby of overpowered Arenas... Deep Thunder. I kept wondering when it would make its comeback.

Phat Loot Phriday: The Pigskin

Phat Loot Phriday The Pigskin
"Mr. Throgg!" the gnome cried out to the towering orc. "Will you play ball with us?"

Throgg stood up slowly from the log bench. He felt exhausted. Not very tired. Not fatigued. He felt exhausted. Concentration and focus alone could move his muscles. But for a gnome like Sharni, who'd made him smile when he and Lolegolas rolled into town... he'd find the strength.

He produced a ball from under his cloak and waggled it at her. "Go long, little gnome. I'll throw The Pigskin."

Sharmi performed a happy little dance, clapped excitedly, then sprinted into the distance. With only a minute grunt, Throgg hurled The Pigskin through the air. He tried not to ponder the thought that the ball was just a pig's bladder wrapped in cow hide. That seemed a gross thing to throw to a little gnome.

"I'm so glad you got that for Christmas," Lolegolas sighed. "I was concerned we couldn't waste any more time on trivialities. You've put those fears to rest."

"Stop grinching, little elf," the orc said. "We'll find Spot."

"His name is not Spot," the blood elf responded. "But we lost him so long ago, I really do think he won't be back."

"Then, for now, relax and enjoy some foot ball."

Item Note: It's under the Winter Veil tree for you! Hurry up and get it, don't miss out!

Phat Loot Phriday: Turkey Cage

Phat Loot Phriday Turkey Cage
From the journal of Lolegolas:

It's day 109. I feel the hours creeping longer as the rumbling pit in my stomach grows. We haven't eaten since we left Pandaria and even the sinew from my bow begins to smell tasty. If we don't eat soon, I will be forced to take a drastic measure.

The drastic measure's name is Gobbles. Throgg's pet turkey. He keeps staring at me with taunting caruncles and impeccable thighs. Throgg pulls Gobbles from his Turkey Cage to fight other pet trainers.

And every time, I think... we're starving to death. Why don't we just eat Gobbles? It can induce a Food Coma, but it does not fill me. The horror, the horror.


From the journal of Gobbles:

I sense my destiny.

Item note: It's time for another Thanksgiving celebration and there exists no better way to celebrate lots of food that doing pet battle with your Plump Turkey. It's a meal you can fight!

WoW Moviewatch: Alliance vs Horde - Mists of Pandaria, episode 3

The final installment of Alliance vs Horde - Mists of Pandaria is a surprisingly philosophy-laden episode. Filled with love, zen, and peaceful statements, it ends in exactly the way you imagine it will.

This has been a fun series, and the final breakdown and punchline is totally worth the anticipation. I don't think I'm alone when I say that this third episode is, hands down, the best.

Phat Loot Phriday: Pandaren Brewpack

Phat Loot Phriday Pandaren Brewpack
"Call me Spot," the drunk Gilnean said. "Just call me Spot."

The dwarf barkeep started to slide another pint toward the druid but the burly man just waved it off.

"No, no," the man said. He gestured to his backpack. A thin tube extended from it, tapering off at the druid's hand. The man stuck the end in his mouth and gave it a good suck. "See? Got my own."

"What is that?" the dwarf asked with some small amount of shock.

"Pandaren Brewpack," the druid answered. "It's like a camel's back, but with beer. Works great."

"Why're you drinking, anyway?" the barkeep asked. "Since I'm exposition-dwarf tonight, you might as well tell me."

The Gilnean suddenly let loose a thick sob. "My friends left me! They disappeared in Pandaria and I haven't seen them in months."

"So, you thought the logical response would be to go to a bar and drink beer from your backpack?"

"I'm just a Spot sad," the Gilnean answered, burying his head in his forearms.

Item Note: You get it from Brewfest. And yes, I'm aware I radically misrepresented the way it works, but who hasn't wanted a Camelbak loaded with beer?

Phat Loot Phriday: Sap-Encrusted Legplates

Phat Loot PhridayL SapEncrusted Legplates
"Dear Throgg... dear lord this looks like it was written by a goblin with a broken hand being used as a pen by a drunken ogre."

"Uncle Grumpy wrote me?" Throgg peered at the letter. "He did! You should read it to me."

Lolegolas stared piercingly at the disconcertingly chipper orc. "I know you can read this."

"Reading isn't my thing."

"That's fine, writing clearly wasn't your uncle's thing. What language is this even in? Lok'tar thaal'kit sha'suun anariel... is that trollish and goblin in the same sentence?"

"Oh, it's in warriorese. Uncle doesn't really remember how to speak anything else. Took too many blows to the head. Just skip down to the bottom, it'll get to the point there." Throgg ignored the ever increasing piercing quality of the stare Lolegolas was leveling on him.

"All right then... let's see if I can find anything like words in this thing... Me go to big bear land. Boat sink. Me walk on bottom of water. Lots of bears. Many beers with bears. Go to Yak house, help yak kill bugs. Get pants. Good pants. Me draw picture of pants. You need get good pants. Are you warmly dress in pants? Pants useful. You come here, to bear land, and we drink beers with bears and get pants. Pants covered in tree goo, makes them strong." The blood elf blinked several times. Had he actually said that out loud? Had anyone else heard him say that out loud?

"You know what this means!?"

"That your uncle is legally dead?"

"No, that my friend Stinky. This means we're going on an adventure!" Throgg leapt to his axe cupboard, immediately pulling out various axes and tossing them over his shoulder. "What axe goes best with new pants?"

Item Notes: They're tanking pants, they drop in the siege of Niuzao Temple, and they are indeed encrusted with sap. Despite this, they vendor for 24 gold 16 silver 40 copper.

Phat Loot Phriday: Wind Rider Cub

Phat Loot Phriday
Soot growled as Lolegolas's Wind Rider Cub took a bite out of the Netherwhelp. The young wind rider pinned the dragonkin to the ground. For all the world, the cub looked like it was smiling.

"Look, I'm not trying to be obnoxious," the blood elf said mildly. "But I've been running with this cub for as long as I've existed in this... uh..."

"Story!" Miranda shouted helpfully. "Don't say column, it annoys people who follow continuity."

"... uh, story," Lolegolas finished. "Did you really think you were going to get in a pet fight with Throgg? I'm a hunter. It's built into my character.

Throgg finished smashing Miranda free from her cage, shaking his head in annoyance. "Didn't even get to fight. It's a sad world when an orc can't axe the bad guy."

Soot sighed as he sat on the ground. "I guess the Throgg Days of Summer are finally over."

"Really?" Miranda asked mildly. "That's how we're leaving this? With a bad pun?"

"Back to basics," Throgg said. "That's the new plan. Just the basics. Jokes and isolated stories. Think it'll work?"

"It'd take a miracle," Miranda answered.

"Hey," Throgg said suddenly. "Has anyone seen my dog?"

Item Notes: It's true! Lolegolas's first appearance was with a wind rider cub waaaay back when. Since this is one of the last PLP's before the expansion, I wanted to wrap up this somewhat meandering story with a shout out to the beginnings. Let the pandamonium begin!

Phat Loot Phriday: Sen'jin Fetish

Phat Loot Phriday Sen'jin Fetish
The young woman sat in her cage, running her metal cup across the bars. "One, two... Throgg is coming for you."

Soot whirled around in the cave, growling at Miranda as he paced. "Shut up. They don't even know how to fight with pets."

"Three, four... Lolegolas is at your door," she said. "Five, six... grab your crucifix."

"Stop that," Soot snapped. "There's no such thing in Azeroth."

"Shows what you know, Mr. I Kidnapped Tertiary Plot-based Characters," Miranda said. "There's a Sen'jin Fetish."

"That's not a crucifix at all!," Soot protested. "That's a battle pet."

"Nope. I named mine Crucifix because it's a ..." Miranda stopped, cocking her head as if listening to something. "Your time's up. Throgg's axe is here."

"I don't care about his axe!" the human snorted, darting toward the door.

"I think that's where you're wrong," the woman said quietly.

Item Note: So, no jokes this week but we've gotta wrap this up for the expansion. Also, I can't wait to fight every single troll I ever see with the Sen'jin Fetish.

Phat Loot Phriday: Horde Ballooon

Phat Loot Phriday Horde Ballooon
When we last left our heroes, the plot was finally moving forward again, thanks to your narrator's sudden obsession with pet battles. I mean, seriously, have you tried them out yet? OMG, awesome.

Lolegolas and Throgg rode from the gym in a cloud of dust and machismo. Like a pair of gods carved from solid stone, their rippling muscles and perfect definition would be the envy of any underwear model. Would be. The effect was ruined by a dainty red balloon drifting behind Throgg.

"I'm not clear on how the balloon is going to defeat our enemy," Lolegolas said.

"Won't. Balloon can't fight," Throgg growled. "Tired of pets. I want to hit him with my axe."

"That's a shame when you think about it. Orgrimmar's Fighting Balloons would be a hell of a team. It would certainly be better than Osh-Kosh Garrosh."

Throgg spared the blood elf a dry look. "Balloon doesn't fight. This is just for show. I'm going to hit the bad guy with my axe and rescue Miranda."

"Imagine if the balloon could cast spells," Lolegolas said. "Heal-ium, for example."

"Do you mind?" Throgg asked. "Trying to look imposing here."

Item note: Horde Balloon doesn't fight. Which, c'mon, Blizzard -- that'd be awesome! Fighting balloons. And since the Horde and Alliance can each get their balloons in a simple quest, that would be amazing. Am I the only one who thinks fighting balloons are awesome?

Phat Loot Phriday: Rabbit

Phet Loot Phriday Rabbit
Throgg leaned back against the pet gymnasium wall, chewing on a piece of straw while he watched Lolegolas. For his part, the blood elf did not look amused.

"What will you be fighting with today?" the old man asked Lolegolas. The gym trainer had long, flowing white hair and a slightly stoned look. Lolegolas had ultimately decided it was best not to ask about what the trainer used in his pipe.

"A fierce creature from the very depths of Stormwind," Lolegolas said. "A Rabbit."

The old man blinked.

"It has very pointy teeth, man," Lolegolas said. "It's mean."

"If you are going to rescue your friend Miranda," the trainer answered, "you will need to skillfully command your ... rabbit."

"Bun Morogh, I summon you!" Lolegolas shouted. The bunny appeared on the floor, twitching its nose disdainfully.

"Really?" the old man finally asked. "A bunny?"

"It's fierce if you rile it," Lolegolas commented weakly.

Pet notes: Seriously, man. Between Burrow, Adrenaline Rush, and Stampede, the Rabbit's got moves like Jagger. Give it a try before you scoff at the fuzzy herald of doom.

Phat Loot Phriday: Pet Bombling

Phat Loot Phriday Pet Bombling
Throgg growled at the human. "Where is the girl, human? Where is she?"

"Ha!" the soldier cackled, throwing his cape back over his shoulder. "I am Soot Dartsum of the Imperial Navy! I will not be cowed by the likes of an ogre."

"Orc," Lolegolas quietly pointed out. "Throgg's an orc. You can tell by the green skin. It's a dead giveaway."

"Quiet, fool!" the man said. He reached into his bag and hurled a large, black ball on the ground.

"Throgg, get down!" Lolegolas yelled. "It's a bomb!"

The human veritably clapped his hands with glee when the bomb grew a pair of legs. "No! It's my Pet Bombling, and it will lay waste on your foolish team."

The aforementioned orc cocked his head slightly to the side. "I'm sorry. Can you run that by me again?"

"That's how we fight here," Soot explained. "With pets. It's much more civilized than bashing on one another with axes."

"Oh," Throgg muttered. "I kind of like hitting people with axes. It's kind of my thing."

"So, you don't know how to fight wit pets?" the man asked. "That's going to be awkward. Look, there's a school right down the hill. Why don't you trot down and get a quick lesson? I'll wait here."

Item note: Pet Bombling can be picked up at the auction house fairly easily. It's a mechanical type pet.

Phat Loot Phriday: Amber Flammard of Klaxxi'vess

Phat Loot Phriday Amber Flammard of Klaxxi'vess
"You're joking," Lolegolas insisted. "There's no such thing as a flammard."

Throgg waved the Amber Flammard of Klaxxi'vess around in the air, making vague buzzing sounds as he did so. "Is, too! It's a noble weapon! The weapon of an orc!"

"Flammard? Really? A flammard's a thing?"

"It's a flame-based sword, that's all," Throgg insisted.

"So this bursts into flame? Doesn't that seem more like a Firelands thing than a panda thing?"

"Not literally flames," Throgg replied. "Just, like, wavy. This one's a reputation reward from the Klaxxi."

"So, it's not just a clever name. I guess it's looks curved and wavy. Kind of," the blood elf acknowledged.

"It's totally curved. I haven't seen curves like this since your m..."

"Shut up!" Lolegolas quickly yelled. "Dorothy Goldenhair was a saint!"

Phat Loot Phriday: Reins of the Crimson Pandaren Phoenix

Phat Loot Phriday Reins of the Crimson Pandaren Phoenix
Lolegolas jumped at the squawking that suddenly erupted behind him. It sounded like someone strangling a moonkin. "What the heck?" the blood elf asked.

"This is my new phoenix," Throgg said, straddling an immense bird. "It's a Crimson Pandaren Phoenix."

"That doesn't look like a pandaren," Lolegolas countered. "In fact, I don't think there's anything terribly panda-like about it."

"It's just a name, little elf," the orc said. "Like hot dogs. There's nothing dog-like about hot dogs."

"Maybe it's just named that," Lolegolas said, "since, like, it's pandaren-raised or something. Still, that's a darn fine-looking mount."

"It's already killed a cyclops and a wolverine, too," Throgg said. "It was pretty amazing to watch."

Lolegolas cocked his head to the side and peered at the orc out of the corner of his eye. "Really? That's where we're going with this?"

"Well, it's supposed to be all crimson and red, but instead it's black and evil-looking. Seemed appropriate."

Lolegolas nodded. "Fair enough, then."

Item note: It's been a Challenge Mode reward, and now it seems like everyone on the beta has it. While the details of the mount could obviously change, it sure looks snazzy!

Phat Loot Phriday: Lucky Quilen Cub

Phat Loot Phriday Lucky Quilen Cub
Wandering through the isles of Pandaria, Throgg and Lolegolas are making a slow but inevitable trip toward Miranda. But for now, we'll enjoy some shock, awww, and general fun with their journey.

The druid jogged down the hill to catch up with the dyanamic duo. He stopped short when he saw the diminutive creature walking beside them. It looked like a pug or maybe a chihuahua, except for the rich mane around its head.

"Wait. What is that ... thing?" the worgen asked.

"Collector's Edition pet," Lolegolas said nonchalantly. "Isn't it fabulous? I love it."

"Since you disappeared, Spot, we needed a new puppy," Throgg answered. "This guy seemed apt. It's a quilen pup."

"It needs a shave," the druid said. "It's got a fierce neckbeard going on. A few more days of growth, and it'll be ready for Reddit."

"What's Reddit?" Throgg asked.

"It's a place that really loves beards," the druid answered. "I think the dwarves invented it."

Somewhere in the distance, trapped within her cage, Miranda shrieked something about a fourth wall. That was just fine, since the boy would have ignored her anyway.
