A New Blingtron Appears

Several days ago, Jonathan LeCraft tweeted something very interesting:

This pint-sized trainer looks familiar. She might just visit your garrison in the future

Garrison trainer

Check out this Gilnean child with her epic looking Diablo team. While many can relate to having only the Treasure Goblin in their collection, I was excited to see both Mini Tyrael and Mini Diablo on the PTR a while ago. I just didn’t have the heart to level them. Talk about a dream team.

TheCrafticus was even asking for names, so what about Scrooge, Justice and Terror?

Today there was even some engineering news. When asked if we’d be getting another Blingtron for WoD, TheCrafticus responded:

Yes. Engineers will be able to construct a new Blingtron (new gifts), and it will fight other Blingtrons to the death. Savage!

I must admit, I was quite intrigued by this and was left wondering what materials we’d need to craft it. Here’s his response:

I could tell you, but it wouldn’t make a lot of sense without more context. It will be difficult, but it won’t be permanently destroyed if it dies in a Bling-fight.

With some concern about possible exploits like players of the other faction dropping several to demolish yours, it will only be:

Same faction. It will be a free-for-all. Idea is to grant a bonus to the creator of a winning Blingtron. We’ll keep an eye on the exploits — the bonus may just be bragging rights.

So what about a new style of teleport:

Wormhole Centrifuge: Pick two locations from a list. You will get sent to one. We don’t want it to be a perfect teleport. It will be useful half the time, and that’s just about right for engineering.

When asked if it could ever go wrong and teleport you elsewhere:

Nope, but you might be a sheep. Or on fire. Or both.

Hmm, maybe today I’ll finally get to change into something… *fingers crossed.

Now for mount lovers, when asked if there would be anything new for WoD:

Engineers recently got the Sky Golem, so probably not going to have a brand new mount with WoD.

I can’t say I really mind about the mount, we did get three this expansion and that’s just from engineering.

Catching up on Silver Dragons

I’ve been travelling a lot between ZG, Grom’gol, Loch Modan, Scholo and the Dark Portal lately. So much so, I’ve been getting a lot of new Silver Dragon sightings. There are others I’ve collected over the past few months but they sit in a folder waiting to be edited and uploaded. Since so many were added post-Cata, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add them into my current zone collections but here’s what I’ve been seeing lately.

Roloch

I was particularly happy to see this rare since he’s been missing from my Northern Stranglethorn post for over a year.

The Husk
Putridius
Parasitus

These next three in Western Plaguelands are in close proximity to each other although I wasn’t expecting to see a huge parasite in the lake around Scholo. Eww.

Azelisk-51

One of the new exotic pets found in Burning Steppes.

Go'shek Farm stable
Chops-26

Both of these beasts are native to Arathi Highlands although Chops may be found along the zone border.

Now the rare I’d like to see the most is Doctor Theolen Krastinov in Scholo. I’ve been checking every day but still no luck. I’ll just add that to the list with the Spineclaw drop, the mace from Garrosh, a transformation (finally), and the mechbuilder overalls which Cool was kind enough to draw in chibi/Astroboy form.

With a list like that, surely my unlucky streak has to break soon.
