As you know, I recently managed to get my Lil’ Tarecgosa pet and as part of my appreciation, I left a few gifts with some members in Shadow Rising. But what do you get the guy who has all the pets? Well that’s not entirely true… I did try and get him the Searing Scorching since I knew he was missing that for a while – even doing some of the dailies. In fact, it was one of two pets I religiously looked up (the other was for Navi) every time I made a trip to the AH on any server I happened to be on. The pet was intended as a Winter Veil gift but with time running out, it didn’t eventuate.
So with this latest venture, as I leveled a toon on his home server, I tried to think of another way I could reciprocate – the Crawling Claw. I’ve been lucky enough to have mine for a long time now but since I didn’t make the money back in time, I considered putting my effort into discovering another one as a gift. However, soon after I started digging for another claw (mostly through trade-ins to Braun) it brought back memories of farming the Vial of the Sands, the two bug mounts and my own Claw discovery.
In the end, I managed to make quite a bit of Gold, selling off some of the pets from my collection but I also wanted to supplement that with something pet-related. After Christmas, I was lucky enough to get another Pandaren Fire Spirit which I sent to Arv saying that I knew he already had the pet but he could probably try selling it to get some of the Gold back. Little did I know, he gave the pet to Lyss instead.
It turns out that Lyss lucked out and managed to get not one but TWO pets as I originally gave her my Pandaren Water Spirit – with a matching one to Slice.
But the question remained… what do you get the guy who has all the pets available?
How about turning him into a superhero for a night? I had a suspicion that he was partial to Batman so taking that on board, I went back to my original Batman interpretation as part of my Super Sunday series and tweaked it using Arv’s toon.
The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt.
There he is, rappelling down the walls of Stormwind in style.
