20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 5
This is the fifth installment of the 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge.
Favorite Item(s) in Game
This is an interesting one, which is actually difficult for me. I don’t tend to covet items (though that might change as I get more interested in transmogrification); I am a mount collector, and pet collector to a lesser extent; but overall, items are flavor for playing a game… so I’m going to change the name of it for a bit of fun:
Most Notable Item(s) in Game For You
There, that’s much better.
Yesterday, I talked about the Lawbringer Boots. And how I saw so many drop before I got my own, and how they were what completed my Lawbringer set. Ironically, when I took Shoryl (II) to Molten Core to get her the Lawbringer set for transmog purposes, the boots were the last item she got. Suthine got at least three pair (those were the ones he linked to me when he was doing it) in his own instances locks before I got mine.
There’s also the Reins of the Albino Drake, which I had coveted since I knew they existed. I’m honestly a little sad that Blizz didn’t make the model notably smaller than the other drake models, as it would be a beautiful reference to Anne McCaffrey’s White Dragon. Shoryl is the proud owner of an albino drake, though Taoiseach never did get one.
Since I’m a mount collector, another one I’m quite fond of is Ashes of A’lar. Which, of course, have not dropped for me. Oddly enough, I had a moment of elation when the white chicken did drop. Until I realized is wasn’t ashes. Sonaira has her Pheonix Hatchling now, though, so maybe I’ll get the Ashes eventually.
I’ve wanted a Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros since vanilla, but I haven’t quite worked out how to solo Rags on Gurdrid. Shoryl and Sona can two-man it, but we’ve got nothing else to run the whole huge instance for any more, now that Shoryl has her set. Oh, wait, there’s a rep in there…
Shoryl (the first one) carried a rabbit’s foot for quite a while. I had this notion that it might be an Easter Egg of RNG love. I think I got rid of it right around the time of the 8th or 9th drop of Lawbringer Boots…
There’s also the Zhevra mount, which I got when Sona and I recruited her parents into the game. I ended up giving the mount to my warrior because I didn’t think Taoiseach (then Shoryl) would get much use out of it, since paladins still had to quest to get their epic mounts, so they were becoming rarer.
I made my first “fortune” on theSuper Healing Potion. That was the first time I broke 10,000 gold, which was a lot more than it is today in BC. Sadly, I’ve never been able to reproduce the consistent sales of those things.
