What a long strange trip it was

Ever since getting my violet mount a few years back I pretty much stopped paying attention to the world events. Not for any real reason other than I just didn’t want to fly around and collect things anymore 🙂  But midsummer festival was upon us and so I flew around and scored a couple more achievements.

I had forgotten I have achievements I could still chase.

I had missed the exciting little pop up which made you feel as as though you had achieved something.

So I think I am likelt to start checking out the world events again and trying to get more of them completed.  I think I am still missing the day of the dead…I will have to check.  Every year I say I am going to do it and then…well…it is hard to remember to log in on specific days ok?

Thankfully both hubby and I only had Broken Isles and Draenor to complete (woo!) so it took us barely any time to complete – even if we had to wander around aimlessly trying to locate the actual campfires for some of them.

I was also surprised to find dousing the flames didn’t require any battle.  Am I remembering wrong – did you not used to have to fight to get to the flames and be battling PVP people as well as NPC’s?  Am I making it harder than it ever was in my head?

I got all prepped for Draenor, I stood back, potted up, popped my shield, blew timewarp and then….nothing…I was going to go in flames blazing and all I got was a pop and fizzle.

I laughed at myself. I won’t also mention the war cry as I ran in only to find nothing happening.

It was funny to me anyway 😀
