Not A Happy Camper
My latest foray into achievements in WoW has me camping out in The Storm Peaks which is snowy enough to make me feel cold just by going there. What am I camping for, you might ask? The Time-Lost Proto Drake. This is an extremely rare dragonkin who flies around just asking to be killed because he drops reins that let you get him as a riding mount. The frustrating part of camping for him is that there is no pattern to his spawning. He could spawn three times in one day or not spawn at all for three weeks. Yesterday I camped for 14 hours with WoW in the background and listened for my SilverDragon to go off while I worked on homework. As I was on my last question for my discussion board, I was concentrating so much on my answer that I didn't hear SilverDragon. I finished my answer and posted it then flipped back to WoW and found the Time-Lost plate up on my screen and realized I had just missed him flying by. I swooped down the mountain only to find that a douche on the server named Nish, who had seen me camping, had stolen the kill out from under me by about 30 seconds. It's not that Nish needs this mount by the way, he's killed it at least three times. The first time he did he stole the kill from a guildie of mine who had also been camping him and had him marked already. No, Nish killed it just to be an ass because he knew I was tabbed out. He even said so to another guildie of mine who was online at the time. I'm not ashamed to say that I was extremely put-out, frustrated and very unhappy. So now I sit here and camp some more because Seph loves green mounts and TLPD is olive green.
Oh, and Nish, if you read this, thanks for proving everyone on the server right about your character.
