Convention at the Legerdemain

.

If you have a high level toon, and you've done a few cooking dailies in Dalaran, you've probably come across the quest "Convention at the Legerdemain Lounge." It's a great daily - if you've got 4 Chilled Meats and about 2 minutes, you're all set. Cook up that Northern Stew, grab that jug of wine, and you've got a happy convention of people.

It all started with a sneaking suspicion that something just wasn't right. How come I was never invited to these conventions? I always assumed that they were meetings involving Azerothian politics, or military powwows about new Scourge-defeating tactics. I have good ideas for that!!! Why wouldn't they invite me!? My boyfriend assured me that the reason for my lack of an invite was simply that "people like that never invite the help."

Which made me start thinking about this help I was giving them. What WAS this convention? What if it was something I didn't support? What if it was like, some secret horde meeting with an agenda to wipe out all night elf trees? And here I am, waltzing on in, OH HAY GUYS HERE HAVE SOME YUMMY SOUP I MADE IT JUST FOR YOU AND HERE'S WINE TOO HERE LET ME POUR YOU SOME and they're like "*sip* Mmmm, thank you Averna, this is quite good, don't you agree, Marrowgnawer?" And Marrowgnawer is like "I liiiike shiiiiniesssss" and they're like "Indeed, Marrowgnawer, jolly good!" and this is all while they're secretly planning to eliminate me when the time is right!!!!

OR. OR! What if the convention is for the Society of Friends of Applebough?!




Until I get more information regarding this.... "convention".....

NO SOUP FOR YOU!

“What if it was something I didn't support?” :D

… now you got me into random curiosity too. 1) I saw my guildie priest smiting things to death for dailies. I felt bad so partied with her and housed everything. How do tree druids kill stuff? Do you just go boomkin/feral for dailies? 2) Who/what is applebough?

@Jong:

1. Very slowly. And barkily.

2. GASP. Applebough is a force of evil who hangs out in Dalaran selling fruit. He must be stopped.

Applebough has his own blog where he refutes Averna's claims. Personally, I've always been rather weary of Applebough after the shocked look of recognition he gave to the Teldrassil Sproutling I recently adopted after finding her abandoned in the snows of Icecrown, but he quickly turned away and feigned ignorance of the matter, and only spoke of selling fruits when I questioned him about it.

haha cute post! I've always wondered what the convention was.. it does seem suspicious.

i lol'd.

Conventions to me are normally huge and house thousands a day. How come they only need one jug of wine and a few meager bowls of soup?

A) Bonus points for the Seinfeld reference :3

B) "What if it was like, some secret horde meeting with an agenda to wipe out all night elf trees?"

~ I can guarantee we have no such plans, my qtpie. Though many horde have gone into a fit of rage because of how cute and pretty Night Elves are, but I've managed to convince them to, rather than take it out on your kind, to go to the boutique and prettify themselves!

We need to get Averna on Moon Guard on her shaman to RP this out. So much leafy drama.

But we lurves her on MG <3

Lissanna said...

I don't get invites to the convention, either. :(

I thought about you Averna when I did this daily last night. :)

Sylly said...

rofl Averna, you whackado! =)
embarrassing but true story... I had never done the Convention at the Legerdemain quest at all until just last night. I had avoided it every time because when the expansion first came out you needed TWELVE chilled meats to do it. It was stealth nerfed to 4, or I missed the patch note. So last night I saw it was that quest and spouted off about it in guild chat and how the convention could suck it I wasn't coughing up no stinking 12 chilled meats... and then my guildies told me to read the stinking quest text. /facepalm

He really is a shady character... No ones leaves can be that green all year round >_>


And I agree with Raine.. only 4 bowls and a jug of wine? Really?
