Ah Pepe, you fluffy little in game bird that has annoyed and delighted players in equal measures.
When he first came out I did take a passing glance at him and then shrugged off his existence. Completely forgetting about him until yesterday.
Why yesterday you ask? Well that would be the arrival date of the Pepe plushie in the photo above. However, he’s not mine. This little fuzzball belongs to Francis.
His arrival time was some ungodly hour of the morning and was a surprise due to the poor little chap being squeezed into a FedEx ‘medium’ box (with no air holes, the monsters!)
Once back at my own computer I logged in and went to his tree. There he was, sat there doing not a lot. I clicked on him but wasn’t close enough. I mounted up but even on the biggest mount I had I still couldn’t reach him. I flew up a little. I was now technically in reach but was greeted with the message ‘you are mounted’. I tried to land in the tree. That didn’t work and as a result of my efforts all I had managed to do is cause him to go away.
Being Pepe-less I went to Stormshield to collect my seals (I haven’t been near my computer for five days) and have a look at what goodies having a feathered friend would bag me.
The bird whistle is the obvious item. If you like Pepe then you want him all the time! There was a lot to get through and I still had the whole ‘he flew the nest’ thing to contend with.
I was informed that if I went back into my Garrison it would reset him. So back I went, ran up to his tree to be confronted with an empty branch. I went out and back in my Garrison twice more, each time getting to the branch and seeing nothing. I tried the /tar Pepe and nothing happened, I tried it out on another npc milling around and it worked perfectly. At this point I conceded that Pepe was gone forever and I decided to look at wowhead to have a look at the bird whistle achiement in more detail due to the number of raid bosses you need to kill.
It was upon reaching the comments section I decided to read through them as there can be comedy gold in those posts, scrolling through comments about not having certain critter killing pets out, I then stumbled on this…
He looks like Leatherface. Creepy little shit…
Anyway, I collected him and got the achiement for finding him in his scarecrow costume (wut?) and had his fat ass on my head as we went in to raid. Trash went a bit wrong and he decided that there was no reason to hang around with my corpse so he buggered off again.
I might be tempted to complete this, as he is kinda cute but the sheer effort needed now nothing is current is going to be horrendous. Unless I can convince the raid team to spam the old dungeons and raids while we have birds sitting on our heads it’s going to be a lfr job… Can I actually be that bothered? Possibly not!
