Previously I discussed leveling in Redridge Mountains on Sleepypaw and meeting Bravo Company. These are NPCs that quest with you throughout the zone. They’re pretty hilarious because they act like player classes and even talk in a way that seems to fit the story while still sounding like people with whom you might group. I mentioned in my last post on the subject that a paladin talks how the light suddenly felt weaker, as if he was nerfed.
I found a fantastic comment on Bravo Company on Wowhead that I just had to share. Here’s a few choice sections as well as a link to the full comment.
This new cross-realm stuff Blizz added is great! I’m just doing my quests in Redridge, no big deal. After a few quests, I noticed I have these lowbies following me around…
… As soon as he starts following the mage and I, he complains that he feels weaker this week.
“I know that feel, man. You guys are getting buffed in MoP though.” I assumed he knew and we kept questing. A warlock, mage, and a paladin. The paladin wasn’t healing though, he was ret specced. It was kind of hard having my voidwalker do all the tanking, so I politely asked if he could change specs, since we already had two dps…

I’ve had an Ominous Seed sitting in my bad for a while now. I wasn’t sure of it’s purpose, but I was always busy with something else. When I finally got around to looking it up on wowhead, I was surprised to find out that it grows into the Terrible Turnip!
The Terrible Turnip is a terrific pet for those interested in pet battles. It has an ability that can’t kill enemies. That means that the Terrible Turnip is actually the Perfect Turnip to use when trying to catch low-level pets! This makes me want to work on my pets more.
