Credits and Cubs

Over the last few weeks I’ve been busy accumulating gold for the next expansion; that was until a couple of days ago when I noticed an affordable Soul-Trader Beacon in the AH. Considering the one I always see is still over 100K, I’ve been waiting patiently for the Ethereal Soul-Trader, Spectral Tiger Cub and to a lesser extent (because it’s never there) Viscous Horror to buy so when I saw one for a good deal cheaper, I took the plunge and snapped it up.

Soul-Trader summon

As a vendor, he sells a rather unusual list of items but you’ll need to start collecting Ethereal Credits before you can purchase any of his unique inventory. To start earning credits, he has to be close when you get the killing blow on any green mob or higher. This also works for PVP as long as it’s an honourable kill.

Ethereal Credit may be used to purchase:

I admit I was disappointed when I previewed the set since it doesn’t look all that close to an actual Ethereal (especially when it costs 2200 credits to buy). Even so, I’m in the process of collecting them now since I always thought they’d be a cool race to play. I’ll just have to stockpile the credits since I don’t have the room to hold the set right now.

Note that if you mass kill the mobs you won’t get a credit for each kill since the trader takes a couple of seconds to harvest each soul.

Aki mutagens

Now here are Aki’s companions with the mutagen applied. I imagine they’ll be like this until next Tuesday – unless a restart happens beforehand.

Oh and if you name your Soul-Trader, you’ll see this the next time he’s summoned:

<name> says: I have arrived. Shall we set to work, then?

Then tonight I saw another exciting (affordable) addition to the AH – the Spectral Tiger Cub. That’s two pets I don’t have to search religiously any more.

Woot! My Ultimate Wish List is shrinking slowly but surely.

  1. I only need the Tuskarr Kite and the Soul-trader to have all the tcg pets.
    I just don’t understand why the kite is so expensive on the AH. It’s much more common in booster packs than Bananas for example, but it typically sells for over 200k, which is crazy.

    • I don’t really see the kite on our AH but that is so expensive. Hope you manage to get them both soon.
