I’ve always wanted to weild an epic bow. I actually have one, but not before I found a better option. For some reason, the better option has always been a Gun. I want to use a Bow, but my Gun is always better.
When Wrath started I knew the gun I wanted to get. It was the Nesingwary 4000. Oh, it was a pretty piece of equipment, and even had a gem slot in it! A yellow gem slot, just for us +hit deprived huntards!
I raided Naxx for quite a while. I picked up a pair of shoulders, and one chest piece. I was an alt, and I agreed to some very particular loot rules. Only guild members were allowed to roll on Tier items, which left me out most of the time. But, I was always on the look out for that bow or gun that might drop.
I collected emblems, boy did they add up. I bought the Tier Chest and Head pieces. I don’t feel bad about that, each emblem was well deserved. I went through PuG, after PuG, after Heroic PuG. If you’ve been there, then you know how painful that can be. I ran Naxx often, often to the detriment of my next morning work duties at least one morning of the week.
Tier piece after Tier piece dropped, but no ranged weapon. Eventually, all of the guild members had their Tier Set, which meant I could finish mine as well.
Then, one night it happened! It was our second or third time on Kel’Thuzad, when it finally dropped.
There, sitting pristine next to the emblems was the Nerubian Conquerer!
I would say, “What a Beaut!” But, you know that I would be lying. Practically everything that drops in Naxx is beyond ugly.
It was the upgrade I had been looking for The only other Hunter in the group refused to use guns, so there wasn’t even a need to roll.
What is the morale of this story?
Oh, nothing I guess. You could say that “good things come to those that wait.” Yes, that may be true. Is there a such thing as WoW Karma? Possibly. I still look forward to seeing a bow drop that would be an actual upgrade in Ulduar, or the Tournament of Champions. But, until then I’ll continue to go Pow Pow, instead of Pew Pew.
