Like so many others, I ended up one candy short of the Fool for Love meta-achievement. Also like many others, I logged on once an hour over the whole weekend and late into the night Sunday hoping for a bag of candies with the one I was missing.
Monday morning, dejected, I went to my bank to throw away all the leftover items from the holiday event – dozens of Love Fools and Friendship Bracelets, several Lovely Black Dresses, and numerous arrows. I decided to reorganize my bags in the process.
Then – a discovery! I found a bag of candies from 2008, sitting there untouched for a year. It had three charges left… and I only needed one candy.
First pull… No luck. Second candy… Nope. Third and last try…
If it were a movie, there would be a feel-good ending here ending with my screenshot of the achievement. Alas, the scriptwriters at Blizzard didn’t help me out. No title for me in 2009. No shot at the violet proto-drake until at least February 2010.
