Every Cloud has a Silver Lining

I’m a creature of habit. My first Onyxia kills took place in vanilla, before flying mounts entered the game. As my then Guild tag acted as a sort of red rag to a Tauren (Orc, Troll and Undead too), we used to meet in Theramore and then either ride through the Marsh or make our way across the water slowly.

Now whenever the urge to kill her crosses my mind, I still go to Theramore before flying off to her lair.

Things have changed somewhat since we used to gather, chatting by the main gate. An army of 40 players all in our glistening armour, looking more unified than we ever were (actually it was more like 38 because every raid had at least two players who needed summoning from somewhere…normally Gnomes). There is however still a beauty to be found amongst the ruined stone and gaping crater. I know it’s only a video game and yet, I can’t shake that feeling I have of loss whenever my character stands by what used to be the Theramore Tower.

This story however has a happier ending. Much to my surprise, wrapped up in the usual Onyxia loot (Hunter/Druid…somethings never change), I discovered a mount. For once those fickle Gods of RNG smiled on me.

  1. Oh, wow, what a melancholy mood rain over the ruins of Theramore makes! That first screenshot is marvelous.

    Grats on the mount!

  2. Congrats 🙂 Such a pretty mount.

    I haven’t been back to Theramore since it was destroyed, usually detouring to make sure I dont fly too near it if necessary.

    • I think I have at least one alt who visits that Dragon who hangs out in the marsh so that she can see it in it’s former glory whenever I have to go.

      Thanks.

  3. Ooh, congrats! She’s such a beauty and I also haven’t been back to Theramore since it was destroyed.
