Rockets and Whelps

Three achievements have eluded me from Ony25 so Cool and I headed in there to see if we could get one or two of them done. Now I wasn’t expecting to get More Dots! with just the two of us but we were going to try She Deep Breaths More as well as Many Whelps! Handle It! Unfortunately, we didn’t get the Deep Breath one but we did manage to get the whelps using a strategy I suggested back when were were running our Guild.


Nothing of interest dropped like the mount but it’s only one of a number of instance and raid ones I do each day/week so I still have three to go. I suspect they will come from some sort of drop since I spent a good amount of gold making my last three panthers recently (less the onyx one) but I’m ok with that. It’s just a matter of time.


Speaking of mounts, Cool dropped his Blingtron for our daily package and was gobsmacked to see four things in his. Holy Crap, it does exist! The Geosynchronous World Spinner to be exact! I knew the drop was really low for one of these mounts but I’m glad to finally see one coming out of these gift packages. It should be noted that Cool made me one of these early into the expansion but never made one for himself. I’m wondering though if you would ever see one if you already had one in your journal? Either way, I’m wishing him luck for the other mount too.

Now don’t be surprised if you see us zipping around in our two speciality rockets (although I’ve been using mine for months now).

By now you’ve probably seen the Blingtron 4000 around the place but you may or may not know that he’s been upgraded with a little bit of stylish flair.

In addition to collecting your daily Blingtron 4000 Gift Package, click his “Let’s Party” option for some stylin’ fun. For one hour (regardless of race), you’ll be instantly transformed into a human with the Dressed to Kill buff. Note that it doesn’t persist through death.

There appears to be two versions of the outfit:

Keep in mind that you can no longer pick up his daily gift on all your alts. He’s been fixed in 5.1 to now only dispense one gift per account a day (which is how it was supposed to work).

Dressed to Kill? Perhaps literally…
