The Joy of Giving

Can you believe it’s almost the end of another year already? Just where did the time go? Once again I’m making a list so I can remember what was given as well as received during this holiday period.

Tome was the first one to surprise me with a gift this year. I was able to reciprocate with a Ji-Kun Hatchling which seemed fitting for a druid.

I knew I wanted to give Matty something from the Timeless Isle but it’s hard enough seeing the Spirit of Jadefire alive, let alone the drop – at least in my experience.

Cool has been wanting a Crawling Claw for the longest time so when I wasn’t able to get one the old fashioned way, I ended up buying one. We had a claw war to celebrate. Cool bought me a new headset (which has yet to arrive).

Navi was impossible to gift with a pet so I made her a card instead. She ended up being my Aussie Twitter Secret Santa this year.

Arvash only left two possibilities but with one so rare, it was also missing from my own collection. I was left with one option – trying to find a Droplet of Y’Shaarj.

I wanted to give Rades something since he’s given me a lot of blog traffic over the past two years. At first I was going to give him an ENG pet or a Blackfuse Bombling but that proved too expensive. Then I noticed some similarities on our hunters, like our affinity for spirit beasts, including Loque’nahak which is my absolute favourite. In the end I made him a Sapphire Cub (upgraded) to celebrate the fact.

There were also a few others but it didn’t quite work out.

A couple of days ago @DiscoPriest asked: “What’s the best gift you’ve gotten someone else this season?” My answer was simple, “all the pets I’ve given although it’s left me rather poor. =/”

Even so, their reactions made it all worthwhile.

Don’t forget to open your Winter Veil Gift and loot your Crashin’ Thrashin’ Flyer Controller for 2013. You can also complete The Danger Zone achievement by destroying someone else’s flyer.

I hope you all had an eventful Winter Veil.
