As you know, I recently managed to get Lil’ Tarecgosa 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 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 levelled 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 doing some more archaeology in the hopes of getting another one. 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 was able to make quite a bit of gold, selling off some pets but I also wanted to supplement the gift 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 one but 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.
So the question remained… what do you get the guy who has all the available pets?
How about turning him into a superhero for a night? I had a suspicion he was a Batman fan 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.
Just hope he likes it.
