Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!
Hello again. Foxlight here. If you don't know me, let me explain -- yours truly is accustomed to stretch limos. Orc chauffeurs. Throngs of worshippers
. Glittery ponies. Fabulous
accommodations. The best
Which is why it was so hard on me when my dad cut off my credit card last month. "Frivolous purchases." As if
! I needed
that 8,000 gold worth of gloves and boots -- do you know how cutthroat the blood elf fashion scene is? And really, 8,000 gold is a bargain
when you think about it. It'd have been way
more if I'd bought shirts, too. In fact, when you think about it, I did him a favor! Ugh!
Anyhow. I'd been lowered to having to take ... public transportation. It's the worst ever
. I mean, I'm not a racist, but ... goblins
take public transportation. They smell weird. Like, greasy. I'm not a racist, though. I have a goblin friend. Just saying.
Okay, focus, Foxlight, back on topic. I needed a much more fierce
mode of transportation. So I picked up the Silvermoon Pennypincher
and found an ad for a barely used flying lion mount. He doesn't have sparkles
, but he's still pretty fierce. And man, is he ever flaming
. He was pretty expensive, too, but I sold my paladin-ing services in the back rooms of Ragefire Chasm
to save up some money. Dirty work, but a blood elf boy's gotta do what a blood elf boy's gotta do. Took me a few weeks, but I put together enough gold to buy that stunning beast
I must say, he was even more beautiful once I put a collar on him and made him mine. Gotta admit, at first I was worried that I'd have trouble riding him because he was so
big. But I just had to relax and there was no
problem. He's so
gorgeous, oh my God
. I rode him until the sun came up over Murder Row. The only problem, though, is that everyone
in Silvermoon is now riding one. Foxlight sets the trend, and then all these followers just jump on.
So anyway, not that I even really care, but what are you
doing this weekend? (Maybe we should brunch?) And, oh yeah: "Gigantic winged lion. Did you get it? Why or why not?"
