I’ve been collecting rares in the game for as long as I can remember. It all began with a shot of Rak’shiri in Winterspring. I can’t quite remember why I asked Huga to take a shot of him. I think I was wanting to tame him as a pet at the time and thought it would be cool to start a collection of all the rares in the game.

This has to be one of my all-time favourite rare shots

Divine Aegis, FTW!

I always try to get a great action shot, hopefully while they are displaying what is unique about themselves whether it be a spell or whatnot. This quite often involved Coolidge getting smacked around by something while I stood back and got that perfect shot.

If only you could tame one of these as a hunter

Navimie and I even shared a collection at one time, but over the years and several computers later, I’ve had to rebuild my collection. That’s why you’ll find a pretty varied collection in the quality of shots and dimensions over the years.

Some rares have even changed in Cata. One that comes to mind is Snarlflare, a whelp I found in Redridge Mountains years ago. However, after patch 4.0.6, he’s all grown up and a full-sized black drake found on the other side of Lake Everstill.

I have a good number of them already but with new ones being added all the time, I’m not sure how many I would have in total. Most are from a Horde perspective; however, some are from an Alliance POV, when I’ve been on one of my alts.

Something about this creature seems familiar

Now you see him, now you dont…
