    Another turtle made it to the water...

    I barely played a few weeks at the start of BfA and I've recently returned to the game... and I just hate the tortollan quests. Everytime I listen to her say "another turtle made it to the water" something very evil grows deep inside me and I think that it will eventually explode and cause a catastrophe of global proportions.

    Please, tell me there's a way I can kill this psychopath granny who lets their grandchildren be eaten by albatross and crabs.

    Yes, I kind of overexaggerated it... but I can't be the only one who hates that turtle.

    I believe this special tortollian will be one of the end bosses of the upcoming raid content.

    Which would be a reason for me to play LFR. At least once.

    Those are just turtles and not tortollan. The BfA CE pet is what a baby tortollan looks like.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    You can make the same point you are trying to make with out using false statements. Like how this evil granny sends you to kill the very same turtles you try to save.

    I always found something really funny about these quests. "save 10 turtles" ok cool, i got ten, there is still 15 on the beach should i try save them? nah, fuckem, you done your 10, just walk away now

    Or when i am rescuing people in cages. have 15 keys left. rescued 9/10 ppl. get to the 10th. its a group of three cages. Open first cage, person is happy. quest completes. other two look at me "sorry guys, i got my 10/10, you on your own" *throws remaining keys just out of reach.

    I was surprised, when I came back to the game, that there was a WQ where you're doing the opposite: controlling a crab killing the little turtles.

    .....what?

    I like to think my character hands one of the remaining prisoners the keys so they can finish the job while I focus on clearing a path to safety. Doesn't reflect ingame, but it helps fill in the plot hole.
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    OP, i never understood why people don't like this quest.

    Can someone please logically fill me in as to why this quest makes you mad or upset? Its just a game people.

    Yeah, people have been making this sort of observation for awhile now.

    They added it for shits and giggles because everyone complained about beachhead taking ages.

    Now we can take revenge on those tiny green slow spawns of hell.

    well at least we get to be the crab that eats them and spits their shells at their brothers and sisters to smash them to death now

    I think the turtles you save and the Tortollan are 2 different things. They just feel an affinity for the regular turtles but still not enough to let some be taken by the crabs. It doesn't say the newly hatched turtles are their children.

    Nature needs balance. Crabs gotta eat too.

    No the OP missed the point by not realizing the turtles are not Tortollan.
