Stuff in my bank: Grom’tor’s Friend’s Cousin’s TunicPosted: April 9, 2012
While working on Shadow of the Betrayer for Loremaster of Outland on my druid, Anacrusa, recently, I found myself having to hunt for some of the remaining quests after finishing up the Netherwing area. One of those elusive quest givers turned out to be a hermit named Oronok Torn-heart. He sends you to look for his three sons, who have not returned from a mission.
Grom’tor, Son of Oronok, found beating information out of a Coilskar jerk at Coilskar Point, gives you quests to recover a fragment of the Cipher of Damnation and take it back to his father. There are four possible rewards upon turning it in, but the best by far is Grom’tor’s Friend’s Cousin’s Tunic. Take a look at the tooltip:
Being the hypocrite that I am – working on Loremaster – I didn’t take the time to read either the name of the item or the flavor text at the time. Thankfully, I picked it because it’s leather, and I like to transmog, so I took it for possible future use. It was only when I was cleaning out my bank a couple of days ago that I moused over this chest, and realized that I had been extremely fortunate to accidentally pick up this fun piece.
Grom’tor’s Friend’s Cousin’s Tunic. One of the best-named items in the game, along with The Diplomat, which, although it seemed to drop every single time we killed Fjola Lightbane in Trial of the Crusader-10, never failed to make me chuckle. I may never use this chest for transmogrification, but I will never, ever vendor it.
