Winter Veil Gifts 2012

I hope everyone had a wonderful Winter Veil this year. This turned out to be the most generous gift giving (and receiving) season I’ve had – in the whole time I’ve been playing – so I’d like to thank all the people who had a hand in it.

I also wanted to keep track of who I’d given gifts to this year as I’ll likely forget by the time next year.

Tome - Jade owl

I wanted to give Tome something personal for all her support over the last year. It’s not always easy being the first one to comment on a blog post but she does it more often than not so thank you.

Matty - Sapphire cub

Again, I felt a personal touch was what needed (even though Matty was a JC herself) so I looked for something she didn’t have yet. I even used a battle-stone before they hotfixed them all to uncommon quality.

By now, I had run out of Spirits of Harmony… =/

To JD (who was a little too efficient at making the panthers) plus had the Jade Owl and Sapphire Cub already, ended up getting Lil Smoky.

In the meantime, I’d been trying to get a Gundrak Hatchling (even before Navi‘s birthday) which included some farming and multiple server drop-ins but no luck there. Navi gave me the Burning Spirit I was missing.

For Arv, I saw that I had some spare marks to supplement my Molten Front dailies but no luck on the Searing Scorchling either. Arv gave me another TCG pet.

Angelya scored a Jade Owl (well, actually it was mine since the first was given to Tome so I ended up remaking her twice). I figured I could just build up some more spirits over time, which I did. Ang bought me a Guardian Cub as part of my Secret Santa gift.

Effy - Aqua strider

As part of Effy‘s #FFW gift, I thought the strider would make a great Shammy companion.

Shawndra - Cinder Kitten

Then for my recent Cinder Kitten giveaway, Shawndra turned out to be the lucky recipient after writing such a playful piece.

Cool - Water spirit

To the person who introduced me to The Last Airbender, Cool’s gift would have to be a Pandaren Spirit, it was just a matter of which. Cool purchased a Cinder Kitten for me as soon as it came out.

Kamalia and Grinder

After Kamalia showed an interest in Pet Battling, I gifted her Grinder.

Others came to mind as potential gift recipients but didn’t quite work out – a few others didn’t show the skill for Pet Battling or had lost touch with them since April.

Lastly, thx to Roshii for wishing me a Merry Christmas late that night.

So there you have it, in some cases it was a lot tougher trying to find a suitable gift but I’d like to thank everyone for their generosity and support over a rough year.

I wish you all good health, happiness and prosperity in the coming year.

  3. This week I’ll be lucky to even sneak in reading posts on the iPad, husband is home until the new year. I was stymied when it came to finding you something you didn’t have but there’s always next year!

    • No worries Tome, as Navi said – it’s the thought that counts :D

  4. I’m so grateful for my Lil’Smoky. I have an Engineer, and have made thousands of gold off him and his Bombling brother…but I never realized I never made myself one.

    I’ve also decided to name him Cymmer (does that make him a her?) for rather obvious reasons. :)

    • Sounds great! That’s actually one of my nicknames so I’d have to say a her :)

  5. Awww, thanks for trying to get that Scorchling for me Cym! Now that I’ve finished the Pandaria rep grind for now, I’ll be probably making my daily rounds in the MF too, lol.
