Patch Day: Going ShoppingApril 15, 2009
Aleathea: Whatup Reant! Been a while since we last met.
Reant: Yea, verily, yea.
Aleathea: So, how you been?
Reant: Forsooth, I am right well.
Aleathea: Forsooth? Nobody says forsooth. What’s wrong with you?
Reant: I am a Role Player, this is how we speak.
Aleathea: Oh, I forgot you were one of them.
Reant: Of a truth.
Aleathea: Pretty exciting night last night, huh? So much to do now! Learn strategies for all the new raid encounters, tweak my specs for min/max efficiency, update my addons, rework my UI…
Reant: *nods absently* Won’t that be nice.
Aleathea: What did you do last night?
Reant: Went shopping in Undercity.
Aleathea: Shopping? On patch day? In Undercity??
Aleathea: Had some emblems left to spend, eh?
Reant: Emblems? Never touch the stuff.
Aleathea: Buying gems to re-socket for the new encounters then?
Reant: Gems? It is an affront to the Earthmother to disrupt the stones at rest in her bosom.
Aleathea: Earthmother’s bosom … How could I forget?
Reant: Seeing as you are not yet one of the initiated, I’ll let it slide.
Aleathea: You are too kind. So, then, what did you buy?
Reant: *produces a list* Of the Wolf cloaks in both short and long variations, of the Barbarian shield, of the Feathers headdress (for indoor use) and of the Physician helm (for outdoor use) – you can never have too many hats you know. Of the Spikes shoulders and, my favorite, an of the Whale chestpiece, purchased for the bargain price of 99 gold.
Aleathea: You … spent 99 gold on an of the Whale chestpiece?
Reant: *nods happily* The shoulders were a bit pricy at 89 gold, but they matched the outfit.
Aleathea: … I’m speechless.
Reant: My appearance often has that affect. You know, for a hardcore raider you’re not too bad. You should come visit my world sometime. I’ll take you shopping, fix you up a bit.
Reant: You’re living in the dark ages. Tier sets are so last year. These days, you just meander through the Auction House and buy what looks good on you. Give it a try, you’ll feel like a new woman!
Aleathea: I … think I feel ill.
Reant: It’s all that restricting plate armor. Try going with cloth. It’s better for your health and the environment.
Aleathea: Oh look, invites are going out for Ulduar. Hate to run but, duty calls, you understand.
Reant: Of course. May shadows brighten your path, Paladin.
