Reservation Please…

Operator: “Icecrown Citadel, how may I direct your call.”

Me: “Reservations please.”

Operator: “One moment while I connect you.”

*muzak version of Lament of the Highborn plays*

Operator: “Reservations, how may I help you?”

Me: “I’d like to make a reservation to see the Lich King this Thursday at 8pm.”

Operator: “Let me see if he’s available.”

*keyboard and mouse clicks in the background*

Operator: “Yes he’s available at that time. Your name please?”

Me: “Darkbrew.”

Operator: “Okay Mr. Darkbrew, how many in your party?”

Me:Mr. Darkbrew!? I feel like my father. Um, there will be eleven of us.”

Operator: “I’m sorry we only accept reservations for parties of ten or 25.”

Me: “Oh, but I was told that Highlord Tirion Fordring could join us.”

Operator: “Ah, the Highlord has as standing reservation with us. He will be there.”

Me: “Will he have the Ashbringer?”

Operator: “Yes, and he’ll be wearing thermal underwear too.”

Operator: “Okay you’re all set. I have you down for Thursday, 8pm, party of ten. Will you have a Discipline Priest in your party?”

Me: “No, but we will have Wild Growth.”

Operator: “Wild Growth?”

Me: “It’s an inside joke.”

Operator: “When you enter the Citadel proceed to the Upper Spire and head straight across the bridge to the center. You will access the Frozen Throne from there. Just be mindful of any Valkyries that might be flying around the bridge. Is there anything else I can help you with today?”

Me: “Nope, I think I’m good to go.”

Operator: “Very well then. Have fun storming the castle!”

And with that, it looks like our ten-man team will finally get to see the Lich King. Twenty-five is the real prize for me, but I am so looking forward to this.


  1. Well done ! We have yet to get past Saurfang so it will be a while before we get to see Arthus.
