Slappy the Cool on Tour

For the first in my Telon Sunset series, here’s Mallendis the Shaman and Slappy the Cool breaking it down all over Telon ūüôā ¬†(ahem the low levels areas at least!) ¬†The whistle is still obtainable via the Isle of Dawn starter area or the in-game store. ¬†I did this video partly to commemorate the fun…
