So, sometimes, Goldslipper has these random experiences that make me giggle, and this morning I had one of them.
As background, last night, I began one more run of Sethekk Halls. It was getting close to bedtime for the youngest of the kids, so I needed to hurry. I got to the first boss, had him down, and then got the call “Mommmm! I need you!”
Okay, I thought. I’ll go up and tuck him in, and then head back downstairs to the computer and finish. I told the friend I was chatting with about his new baby that I would be back soon, hopefully. I really wanted to get back for both reasons, to finish the run AND to oooh and ahhhh over the new-parent experiences of my friend…..a new little baby girl, so sweet 🙂
Can you guess what happened? I got upstairs, watched a video with my son, became sleepy, and never made it back to the computer.
So, what do YOU think happens at night when you park yourself near the fresh carcass of Darkweaver Syth? Well, I would have guessed that perhaps a guard would be strolling through, perhaps to relieve a friend in another wing of the dungeon from his late watch, and aggro’d. Perhaps he would call in some friends to finish me off, if my armor were presenting an issue (/pallyflex)…OR, perhaps one of the Avian Rippers would be swooping through, searching for small creatures to eat in the night, and spot me, unprotected. Those two scenarios I would expect. Perhaps you can think of another. I fully expected that I would walk into the office, the game would have logged me out, and I would log in this morning to find myself a ghost. Plausible, right?
What I DIDN’T expect was that I would approach the computer and find that a COCKROACH had been attacking Gold much of the night, apparently long enough to damage her chest and leg armor, since both of those were red as I took my seat!
Cockroach Aggro? Who knew? But that is the real danger of camping out in Sethekk Halls overnight. I know that there are some critters that will aggro, but I have never run into a cockroach as plucky as this one, so I had to capture it. Here is the little guy denting my helm:
Over and over he continued to jump at me. He is little but mighty….a full night of his attacks cost me around 35 gold.
Deathwing IS scary and all, but it’s everyday menaces like these that really set a paladin back in her quest to bring light to Azeroth….so, next time you sleep overnight in a cockroach-infested dungeon….BEWARE!
