Dare to Rein
It was very unusual to see a BE on an undead horse (during BC) but it was an idea that Coolidge came up with when I wanted to ride something more unusual than a hawkstrider. He knew how much I liked riding my human’s racial mount back in vanilla so it turned out to be a great idea. In fact, it took me quite a while to choose which horse I wanted to buy back then – I ended up buying one in Wetlands after an hour or so :P
As a Horde player, this was the next best thing as I worked on my rep with Undercity.
Here we are in Blades Edge Mountains on a rather sad day. We had to change our names due to a character violation so this was the last pic I took of us before we were forced to change them for good.
Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of time in Strat, first on my hunter farming a couple of bone slicing hatchets (since I loved duel-wielding) and then later doing those timed runs for our dungeon upgrade chains. Now and then I would farm the place for Rivendare’s mount but that became boring pretty quickly for the effort it took.
It’s now been a while since I stepped into Stratholme but today I had the urge to try again for Rivendare’s mount. As I reached the end of the forth reset of the day, an epic drop stood out. EEE! It was the mount earning me the Feat of Strength – Deathcharger’s Reins.
I’m still a fair way off from 200 mounts but it feels great to get another one out of the way.
