    I haven’t even been over there, but now I have all sorts of … inappropriate … images in my head. Totally your fault.

  2. waltur says:

    I haven’t run there to do the quests yet. Going off the theory that if I haven’t seen it then it hasn’t happened yet. At least thats what I’m telling my self til i get there.

    poor Blanchy… and we kept taking his blanket…

    I went there yesterday. Poor Old Blanchy.

    And poor Hogger! He’s just misunderstood!

    • bigbearbutt says:

      I loved the changes to the Hogger Situation.

      • Beerbear says:

        Yeah. I went there with my druid and just watched. In the end I just went “awwwwwww, poor Hogger, the bane of so many new humans gone and arrested.”

        I will never forget my first Hogger fight. He died. I lived with 3 HPs left.

    I heard that they were doing some sort of CSI thing with Blanchy. As long as I can still get the chicken, I’ll be alright with whatever happens to Old Blanchy. She had a good long life, right?

    I’m still in mourning for Gwennyth Bly’Leggonde. They killed off the only NPC that I never forgot from my earliest days of playing.

    • Dovius says:

      Like you could ever forget someone called ‘Gwennyth Bly’Leggonde’.
      But yeah, truly a damn shame about what happened with Blanchy

    As a Horde only player I must be the one to ask.

    Who is Blanchy, and what happened?

    • bigbearbutt says:

      I can’t tell you what happened, but I can tell you that Old Blanchy is the horse of a pair of poor, distraught farmers that were the first couple to greet you when new Alliance characters entered Westfall. There was a quest specifically related to Blanchy, and quest rewards that were some of Old Blanchy’s things.

      So it is a very tender moment in the game for long time Human Alliance (or Westfall questing) players.

      A moment of silence, please. He was a horse among horses, but of course encountered forces, and things took their course so now we’ve lost our Mr Blanchy.

      • Beerbear says:

        On the good side, the horse has a lot of meet. So we can finally feed all those refugees in Westfall.

        FTFY ;-)

          I appreciate your interest in fixing that for me, but in my opinion it wasn’t broken in the first place. It was a minor riff on my memories of the the Mr. Ed theme show song. I didn’t even bother to look up the original show song, but from my childhood memories it goes;

          A horse is a horse,
          of course, of course,
          unless, of course,
          the horse, of course,
          is the astounding Mr Ed.

          That’s why I ended mine the way I did.

          • bigbearbutt says:

            I’m not feeling pissy, I just figured you might not have understood why i wrote that the way I did. It wasn’t a eulogy, as much as another example that I’m frakkin’ weird.

    • Dovius says:

      It’s more of an issue of nostalgia than anything else.
      *Takes a minute of silence*

    I was amused when I found Blanchy living alive and well in Grizzly Hills. I wonder if they removed him then? Poor old horse!
