As soon as I logged in today, Coolidge asked to confirm my Battlenet email so at first I thought the Blossoming Ancient had been added to the Pet Store. When I saw the email though, I was surprised to see the name of a mount and one that I didn’t know about.
He told me not to look at the icon when I redeemed the code but it’s a bit hard not to and then when I logged into the game to retrieve it from the mail, I started reading the letter aloud but he told me to stop to avoid spoiling the surprise but it was too late. Ooh, a bat!
The letter left me quite intrigued:
The monstrous, flesh-eating bloodwing bat hails from the misty jungle islands of the South Seas, where it is the undisputed ruler of the night sky.
This particular specimen has been trained as a mount and girded for battle in armor fashioned from a rare ore known only as “heavy metal.”
The South Seas? How exciting but now the only thing left to do was to see how it looked in action.
The /mountspecial animation includes a barrel roll and just look at those eyes and teeth!
Funnily enough, I thought my shadow mog went pretty well with it already but I couldn’t help thinking of the vampire inspired mog I created as part of Mog Madness. I foresee some trips into ICC in the near future.
This makes mount 190 (according to my paladin)… which is one more towards Mount Parade.
Thx again Coolidge. She’s spectacular!
