Back in 2017, my friend gem (usually referred to as Mooglegem on this blog) took me to an animal sanctuary called Lions Tigers & Bears for my birthday where I fed Albert peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I love bears, and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Albert passed away this week. In honor of Albert, I tamed a bear on my hunter and named him Albert. The real Albert was so patient and gentle as I fed him. According to Lions Tigers & Bears, he loved to swim and splash in the water. I’ve been pretty sad, but it’s good to know that Albert had a happy life at the sanctuary. RIP Albert.
Today’s Breakfast Topic from WoW Insider was on memorable NPCs from Cataclysm. Anne Stickney begins her discussion with Mylune, the dryad from Hyjal. She ends with two questions; “Do you have a favorite NPC that was introduced with Cataclysm? Who stands out in your mind?” Well, I skipped a lot of quests from Vanilla and BC (and a couple zones from Wrath), so I’ll pretend that NPCs I didn’t know about previously count.
First, I completely agree with the choice of Mylune. She’s so cute. Devee would totally love to hook up with her. Read the quest text from these two quests. Don’t you want to cuddle her?
Speaking of things I want to cuddle (and Hyjal), I love the bear cubs you save. Do they count as NPCs? No?! Well… um… then I also love Tortolla, the giant turtle that you get to hang out with in Hyjal.
I also like Erunak Stonespeaker. I’ll admit, it’s not really because of him. What I love is the way he progresses with you as you play through Vashj’ir. Very cool. It made the zone feel much more alive.
There’s one final NPC that I have to mention, and he’s also from Vashj’ir. Thrall’s balls is he a good one! Of course, I’m talking about Legionnaire Nazgrim. Hey! Technically Legionnaire Nazgrim was introduced in Cataclysm.
