Oh, you bastards.
I knew they were going to do it as soon as I did it, but this is just too damn mean.
I mean, I just… I JUST… threw them out.
Those damn-blasted idjits.
Do you have any idea?
Oh, those rotten bastards.
Cassie and I, for 8 characters now, have leveled through and stuffed odds and ends in our guild bank in the Cata stuff. We’ve got an entire tab just for food crap.
We had stack after stack after stack of Murglesnouts in there.
After leveling Cooking to max, Fishing to way up there, and getting tired of a full bank, I decided to search Wowhead to see just what those Murglesnouts were good for. Because in game, hey… I sure as hell hadn’t found any use for it. It’s the trash fish of Cataclysm.
It’s so worthless I’m surprised there isn’t an Anthony Bourdain special on TV showing him eating Murglesnout offal prepared 10 different ways. That man is absolutely fearless about food. I’m sure you could get him to eat some Murglesnout. Talk up the cultural history of the Naga, spin some bullshit about their exotic cuisine, toss some Murglesnout heads in a bowl and put it in front of him… he’d eat it.
I mean, you can’t even use it easily to feed your hunter pet! You can’t stick it on your tool bar, God knows I tried, so unless you make a specific macro to feed your pet the fish, it’s just chum. No, it’s worse than chum, at least properly applied chum gets you some fish you want!
So I search Wowhead, and the consensus is… Blizzard screwed us. High drop rate for a useless fish.
So, yeah, I threw all the Murglesnouts out, and I was damn happy to do so. I didn’t even sell the damn things. 75 silver a stack? Yeah, save it, you big spender, you. I guess vendors realized it was a worthless damn fish too, huh? And here I figured anyone stupid enough to pay me 10 gold for some dissolved crap I found in a shark’s stomach was stupid enough to buy anything.
Then, today… TODAY!!! The announcement comes out… “Oh, yeah, that new recipe on the PTR? Scalding Murglesnout? Yeah, let’s make that use x3 Murglesnout. It won’t give you any buffs, but, y’know, at least you’ll have some food you can PUT ON YOUR BAR TO FEED YOUR PET.”
Oh, kiss my big bear butt, you wankers. I know you were watching my bank, just waiting for those hundreds of fish to go bye-bye. I know it. You’re spying on me, and this is proof!
What? Oh, this hat? Yeah, tinfoil really helps reflect the beams nicely. You’ve got to get the angles of reflection just right, though. If you don’t, the beams only refract through the tinfoil at an angle and spear you in the brain anyway. It’s not like tinfoil is ablative, you know. That’s where those other nutjobs went wrong. They put on the tinfoil hats to protect themselves, but they didn’t get the angles right, so all they did was call attention to themselves, and sure enough, they got beams targeted at them that made them go nuts.
