I’m celebrating the Hatching of the Hippogryphs in the Frayfeather Highlands of Feralas. It’s a new micro-holiday from February 23rd-24th starting at 3 am EST and ending at 3 am EST on North American Servers. You locate an egg and keep it warm to help it hatch, this allows you to have a friendly baby hippogryph rest on your shoulder for 24 hours. You can extend the experience by 5 days after locating the Ancient Frayfeather Matriarch, Lorthalium, a rare that drops a Spectral Feather. Feralas is one of the beautiful zones in Azeroth that many often overlook due to its location. Speaking of Feralas, prior to the Cataclysm, Alliance had a great questline, Freedom for All Creatures. This lead to the eventual possession of a Sprite Darter Hatchling, which at that time only Alliance could get. I, happily, tricked a fellow guildie into going through the questline with me. I digress, back to Hatching of the Hippogryphs.
Once you locate an egg the following can be heard while you stand near:
Oh? Is this egg moving?
The egg seems cold. Stay close to it to keep it warm.
You hear a rustling sound inside the egg.
The hippogryph inside is struggling to escape.
This is it! The egg is hatching!
Your Frayfeather Hatchling has several texts emotes while you fight:
Your Frayfeather Hatchling wants to see more of the world.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling seems to be learning.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling seems to be impressed.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling digs its claws tightly into your shoulder.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling seems bored.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling stretches its wings.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling starts to doze off.
Your Frayfeather Hatchling sighs contendedly.
Pepe is a cute, lil orange bird who joined us in Warlords of Draenor’s garrisons. There are a couple acheivements to be obtained. I found Pepe! and What A Strange, Interdimensional Trip It’s Been are the current achievements associated with Pepe. By finishing the achivement I found Pepe!, you can collect 4 different outfits which can be randomly selected when he is summoned by the Trans-Dimensional Bird Whistle earned from What A Strange, Interdimensional Trip It’s Been achievement. I’ve also found an adorable addon for Pepe, which places an animated Pepe anywhere on your screen while playing World of Warcraft.
So you can get an easily obtainable murloc battle pet, his name is Terky and can be found in a grotto in Borean Tundra. He looks just like Lurky, which was available for the EU Collector’s edition of Burning Crusade.
A long time goal of mine was to get the Feat of Strength “Insane in the Membrane“. I had hit a dead end with the use of a rogue not readily available since my husband was not currently playing world of warcraft. With the expansion of Warlords of Draenor, I did a character boost for a rogue so I could finally finish this feat of strength and get all the necessary heavy lockboxes out of Lower Blockrock Spire for the Ravenholdt reputation turn-in quest to reach exalted. I took a lot of patience and head to desk moments, but I was finally able to finish the task and sport the shiny new title “the Insane”.
I hit level 100 today! w00ts
I’ve still been playing but not on a regular or consistent basis until pretty recently. I’ve been spending most of my time pet battling and leveling pets and collecting pets. It’s pokemon on crack!

Or just cherish a lot of spirits and pass out…with your new best buddy Jesus the Maracas King.

After nearly 3 years of on/off camping and listening to wind gusts in the bitterly cold land of Storm Peaks, I took down Time-Lost Proto-Drake and stole the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake. My last camping session lasted approximately 30 hours, during which I killed Vyragosa and Skoll. I camped the spawn point near Frozen Lake for the majority of the time, although I made a couple laps over towards Engine of the Makers to break up time. Skoll spawned a Frozen Lake and Vyragosa flew easterly from Frozen Lake going towards Engine of the Makers. I did not have knowledge of their actual spawn points. Skoll did not get detected until I flew down from spawn point off FrostHold Peak. I’m also not aware of where Time-Lost Proto-Drake spawned either, from my camp position he flew westerly coming up from the Bor’s Breath to Frozen Lake. Although, I believe it’s a safe bet Time-Lost Proto-Drake spawned at the Great Falls area considering how low I saw him coming in from Bor’s Breath.
I was quite thrilled to check this bastardly time-sucker off my list, which puts my mount collection count at 128. The fight is quite easy. The only issue I had was tagging him; his flight speed was quite quick. I dismounted, popped levitate and went to tag him with shadow word: pain, but yet was already out of my range. So I had to remount and get a bit ahead of him and tag him from an outcropping on the side of the peak. Thankfully there was not competition and I was easily able to chase him down.

Another day digging in the never ending quest of artifacts, I found a rare monster Roloch. He is a rather ghastly ogre sporting a one shoulder bare armor piece. Regardless of his poor choice in fashion, I swear this guy makes goblins smell like roses. If you don’t mind the foul stench, You can find him roaming just west of the Horde encampment of Grom’gol in Northern Stranglethorn. He follows a path between the main road through Northern Stranglethorn down towards Mizjan Ruins. If you really must mingle with the ogres, I highly suggest finding a gas mask before you hunt him down.
