Drake of the North

It seems fitting that the first BMAH purchase I made would be either a mount or a pet, especially when I’ve been that close to getting Mount Parade but when I noticed the Drake of the North Wind in there, I knew I would have to keep a watchful eye on this auction. With this in mind, I wanted to take a pic of Altarius in Vortex Pinnacle just in case I won. I figured either way if he dropped the mount, it would save me X amount of gold for another pet or something just as good.


There were only a couple of mounts I had in mind for my 200th – Ony being the other as I wanted something special and not just a filler so I’m happy to say this was the case.

As the auction neared its end, I placed my first (and hopefully only) bid while I kept a watchful eye on the chat. Several minutes passed and nothing, so far, so good. I decided to fill in the time by doing a PVP pet battle and mining until I saw the following…

You won an auction for Reins of the Drake of the North Wind

Whoo hoo! Time for a test drive.

But let’s not forget the Armoured Red Dragonhawk you get as a reward.

  1. Good for you! I wish I had gold for the BMAH but I’m terrible at saving and collecting gold. I’m even worse at saving money in real life D: been saving for a new gaming PC for about a year now and I have a total of £92. Doesn’t look good!
    It’s definitely a lush mount. I always loved their model – their heads in particular. Awesome stuff :D

    • Hope your money woes turn around soon. I always loved his look and is so much nicer than a lot of other drakes.

    • I’d recommend it, if nothing other than a break from battling. :P

  3. Gratz! The Drake of the North Wind is one of my favourite mounts. It was the first mount that I got from a drop and I got it on either my first or second run The Vortex Pinnacle :)
