Kologarn ain’t got nothin’ on this…

Human catformWhen I dream about WoW (and it happens often enough to cast some serious doubt on my mental health), I don’t dream about playing a video game.  That would be far too prosaic for my overactive imagination!  No, I dream that I’m actually in Azeroth, either as one of my characters or as a slightly “recustomized” version of myself.

So.  The other night, I dreamt that I was a human druid (allied with the Horde, of course, because even my subconscious refuses to play Alliance).  A guildmate — an Undead warrior named Bob — and I were attempting to complete our daily herbalism quest, but for some reason the flowers we needed kept despawning.  We could see the sparkles that signify a bonafide Quest Item, but anytime we actually tried to pick a flower, it would dissipate between our fingertips.

It was a little frustrating.

We eventually realized (by checking our iPhone-like Quest Logs) that we had never actually accepted the quest.

Okaaaay …  Slightly embarassing, but no big deal.  We’d just go back to town and pick up the quest from the herbalism trainer — who, in my dream, was a neutral NPC.

In a chapel.

In a meadow.

In the heart of Stormwind.

…. Guarded by cats and dogs wearing Alliance-blue and Horde-red t-shirts.

(Don’t ask me.  I was asleep.)

Fortunately, I was also a druid who could stealth through town in my unbearably cute Siamese-kittyform, and my companion was a fury warrior who could shift into dogform and do the same.

Together, we crept through Stormwind’s trade district.  Well, I crept — chanting sneakykitty sneakykitty sneakykitty under my breath the entire time for improved stealth.  Bob ran around like the lovable Labrador-flavored spaz he is, wagging his tail, /sniffing things and being generally dog-y.

Canine antics aside, we eventually made our way to the chapel and managed to sneak around its four-legged guards to talk to the herbalism trainer.  We accepted her quest, had a quick bite to eat (there was a neutral innkeeper in the chapel, selling ham and scrambled eggs) and finally decided to hearth out of Stormwind …

… by beaming aboard our starship.

(Yes.  I am completely horrified by the level of geekdom that my subconcious has attained.)

We shifted out of our animal forms and /w’d the transporter room, but the Stormwind chapel — which, unbeknownst to us, was also a starship — launched itself into outer space, thus disrupting our allies’ transporter lock and trapping us on board.

And that’s when things started to get really weird.

You see, it turned out that the entire scenario had been engineered by two villains aboard the Stormwind chapelship, who had some kind of personal vendetta (I didn’t dream up the details) against my warrior friend.  They knocked him out and took him away, while I hid in my catform — unstealthed, because I couldn’t re-enter prowl in combat, but cleverly disguised by all of the other guard-cats from the Stormwind meadow.

I distinctly remember batting a rubber mouse all over the chapelship while I searched for Bob.



Unfortunately, that’s about all I remember, because the the dream started to fade at this point.  Shortly after I found the warrior … I woke up.

I’ll save him another night.

I hope.

    I mean, I dreamt above EVE Online last night (started a trial account yesterday) but not to the level of absolute…… adorable insanity….. that you managed to muster with this one.

      Thank you for not making me feel like a complete loser for rolling Star Trek and WoW into one crazy dream.

    Your subconscious is adorable!

    Also, I think you should get this post sent to a screenwriter asap, it has Hollywood blockbuster written all over it!

    I’m just going to call you a freak and move on.



    Really, though… I’ve had a few WoW dreams over and over again. The worst was when I was literally being ganked and couldn’t die. Thus spending the entire dream running in fear while sitting at 1% health. PvP servers ruin even WoW dreams. 🙂

    Can I DVR your brain whilst you sleep?



  • […] Dreams I’d like to see made into a movie. Seriously, Elleiras of Fel Fire has the best dreams. […]

    I dreamt once that my guild leader made me tank Silent Hill.

    I dreamt I shifted into bear form and I saw those creatures coming at me and knew that my only way to attack them were my paws and my teeth.

    I was TERRIFIED and actually woke up crying.
