I was excited to see the Enchanted Fey Dragon and Alterac Brew Pup available to purchase in the Blizzard Store today after seeing my twitter feed and blogroll inundated with posts and pics. When Coolidge came home he promptly bought the package deal for both of us.
If you right-click the pup, he will dispense some Mulled Alterac Brandy which is a strong alcoholic beverage and only took four to see this…
Oh and watch what happens when you target him with /helpme.
As usual, I spent part of my evening levelling this guy up.
Thx Cool for adding another two beauties to the collection. <3
I still wish I had a pair of flying goggles to match though :P
It’s also great to read that Blizzard is matching employee donations for the recent disaster in the Phillipines caused by Typhoon Haiyan. For more info, you can visit the Red Cross Typhoon Appeal to make a donation directly.
When I discovered two new engineering pets and a mount were coming, I had every intention of making the pets first but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to make the mount. I know, GASP! The same thing happens when I upgrade my gear, I purchase the more expensive pieces first like the chestpiece. This meant it would take a full month to transmute 30 pieces of Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source for the Sky Golem. As expected, I saw a few people running around on these yesterday, including Cool.
Collecting the schematic wasn’t bad at all since it dropped off the first set of mobs we pulled. This is what you can learn:
- Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source (daily transmute requiring 10x Ghost Iron Bars)
- Sky Golem: 30x Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source + 30x Living Steel
- Advanced Refrigeration Unit: 5x Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source + 5x Living Steel
- Pierre: 15x Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source + 15x Living Steel
- Rascal-Bot: 15x Jard’s Peculiar Energy Source + 15x Living Steel
I had seen Cool on his earlier and I must admit it looked like a lot of fun so as soon as the daily CD reset (I missed a day =S), I was on my engineer ready to make it. I couldn’t wait to take it for a test drive.
Too bad my herbie is already a toe picker.
I always thought it was a little strange how the Ashes would drop from Kael’thas in Tempest Keep instead of Al’ar himself but being such an awesome mount to get back then it does make sense. The mount is currently listed at a 2% drop rate so you still don’t see that many around. I always felt they were kind of blinding so I never looked at them for too long – kind of like looking at the sun.
When I entered Tempest Keep, I opted to go a different route and went straight to Kael’thas instead of doing either of the side bosses. I didn’t think much about it at the time since I figured I don’t really need the pets but I was planning to do them afterwards. Funnily enough, I didn’t realise the mount had dropped since I was talking to someone at the time but then I saw the achievement pop just up as I looted.
As soon as I left the raid, I took him out for a test drive feeling very regal indeed. To help mark the occasion, I flew to Area 52 for a quick change of attire.
Still shots really don’t do it justice so I took the liberty of taking a short video.
