This week, Mataoka came up with the following Shared Topic:

With the new patch, and all the new things coming, what are three things that you will absolutely not leave behind? Consider these three objects your virtual backpack- the twist is, a tiny story to go along with each item.

There was a bit of similarity between this ST and one I did a while ago but after giving it some thought, I realised that I had a different take on the subject so here we go.

In no particular order, I’m going to cheat a bit and say my entire collection from my Armed and Dangerous collection since it took a lot of effort to complete – the last two coming from AQ40. However, if I had to choose one, my favourite would be Alanna’s Embrace since it’s the one I normally think of when I need a change.

I’ve had my jewelled fishing pole for a long time now. It was the one I hoped to get out of all the rod designs and I’m so glad I did. I mean who doesn’t like a bit of bling when she’s fishing or just out on the town in her best transmog set? Even with the lack of requirements for fishing, I’ll still keep the rod around.
