Dear Gubber Blump…


This is my take on the news of Classic Servers. πŸ™‚ If you are not into those, then just scroll down to the end of the post for a great laugh to start off your weekend with a smile!




























For those who do not know, Gubber Blump was a dwarven Fishing Trainer in Auberdine.

He taught us how to fish and had a few quests, that involved catching Darkshore Groupers and hunting for Crab Chunks.

For most Night Elves, he was the one, who gave us our very first fishing pole too.

After Cataclysm launched he went missing. No one has seen him since.

So I am naturally excited to see him again πŸ™‚ Together with so many other things that are no longer around. I just chose him to be the center piece of this post.

Classic servers divide us all with different oppinions on it. I cannot wait for Classic servers. It’s okay if you do not feel the same way. World of Warcraft is an amazing universe, no matter the year it was made. But for me to be able to experience it, as I did that many years ago, to get to experience it as it once was, is beyond amazing.

I will play Current and Classic at the same time.




Have a wonderful weekend everyone πŸ™‚


And let’s just all agree on one thing;


This video is awesome πŸ˜€

  1. I remember him but I had no idea he was missing after Cataclysm! That’s what I get for maining Horde I guess. I’m so excited for all the memories like this that the Classic servers can help resurface!

  2. I had completely forgotten about him until you mentioned the letter, which lead me to an “OH YEAH” moment. πŸ™‚ I was pretty active in BC and Wrath so I was able to explore pre-Cata stuff a bit. That was a fun read!

    That video was hilarious. Even after 7 years, what he said was pretty true. Even my IT instructors at the local community college weren’t gamers at all. 😦

    Keep up the great blog posts! They’re a lot of fun to read.

    1. Oh nice, I do like them moments of “oh yeah!” πŸ˜€ Aw thanks a lot for such an encouraging comment. Oh, hey, Zeshio, did you get my PMs on Twitter? Not sure I did it right…

      Hah, I know, it is still true, that video. And I guess, that those that do not game find it really hard to grasp what it all is about πŸ™‚


  3. I miss Gubber Blump. I still have my Blump family fishing pole on a few toons (took non-elves there for that pole too). As I was reading this, I got giddy. Perhaps something was leaked about 8.X and he’ll be fine and we’ll see him again. Then I realized you had to be talking about classic. Naw, hopefully this is about 8. Then you said it, “classic.”

    …and I sobbed again.

    1. Aww, gosh, I am sorry for getting you all giddy!

      Hey, maybe he will return in Current too, at some point. I honestly thought he would return in Legion, because of the artifact fishing pole – I saw it as the perfect time for him to ressurface and be part of it.

      Maybe in the future πŸ™‚


  4. Oh … Gubber Blump. We’ve missed him, and now we will meet him again. He is a cheerful and helpful dwarf. Blizzard should hire you to write some stories about the old (and also coming) days. You can really bring back (vanilla) and forth (Classic) the feeling of the old world.
    That video you showed me years ago. It is brilliant πŸ˜€

    1. Hey! πŸ™‚ Yes. it sure is indeed. It was a great place back then- such calm surroundings in a way, and very different from any other zone.

      I know, Auberdine indeed, sniff 😦 So glad it is returning, in a way, at least πŸ™‚

      Thank you so for stopping by πŸ™‚


    1. Hehe, I see. Well now you get to meet him again in the best possible way πŸ˜€

      So glad you enjoyed it, it sure brought a smile to my face πŸ™‚


  5. I absolutely loved your post πŸ˜₯ truly amazing and heart warming! How cute you miss him and still think about him after so much time!

    That video was truly fun xD

    1. Thank you so much, Princess of the Mists πŸ™‚ Yes, no doubt I do πŸ™‚
