Gondul has run into trouble. After tidying up a couple of quests in Tirisfal, I decided it was time to take her to Thunder Bluff to learn to use a firearm (stopping by the auction house in Orgrimmar to put some copper for sale en route). I therefore climbed the tower west of Lordaeron and south of Brill to catch a zepplin across the sea.
That turns out to be a big mistake, at least with my computer issues. I boarded the blimp without any difficulty (I even have a screen shot of Gondul standing in the bow), but there's apparently a rather large information exchange that has to take place during the crossing, and that caused me a vast amount of lag. So much lag, in fact, that I never even saw the dismbarkation point at Orgrimmar: the boat stopped and left again before the screen rendered. Gondul never got a chance to move. Nor did she get a chance to disembark back at Lordaeron. She's cursed to an endless cycle of ocean blimp crossings.
I'm not quite sure how to get her out of this fix. I don't think I can do it with my computer. I may have to login from someone else's computer or reveal my login information to someone with a faster machine to break her out of the cycle.
