Yesterday Cool gifted me with the Reaper of Souls D3 expansion which includes the Treasure Goblin battle pet. They tend to be quite annoying in Diablo especially if they port away so I’m looking forward to having one by my side (for the most part).
They are available as part of the Digital and Collector’s versions but I must admit, the datamined version was kind of creepy looking. It was always impossible to get a good look at them in-game but here they look almost cute! You also get a Spectral Hound Minion to keep you company and some Transmogrified Gear for Diablo.
Over the past week, I’ve been tweaking my build since my wizard is now 60 and having played though all difficulty levels. I’m currently sitting on Paragon level 5 with four pieces of my Tal Rasha set (thanks to Cool).
We’re currently working on the materials for a hellfire ring as I toggle between monster power four and three – at least until I get used to playing again. So far I’ve managed to collect one of three items although it helps when I don’t fight the bosses while zoomed in (Z) the whole fight. I was wondering why I couldn’t see jack. Cool said I wasn’t even hitting the bosses at times which isn’t too surprising.
In my defence I only hit Z because I thought the show all loot button was set to that and not Alt. That’s what I get for playing 15mins at a time :P
This morning I received an unexpected surprise while going through my emails – a thank you poem from Navi. I admit I had forgotten about her blogiversary thank you task but she also wanted to include her thanks for the secret gift I had made for her.
A site more beautiful than Cym’s
Is very hard to find.
Her pics well framed, and great costumes
Look longer! She won’t mind.
Silver dragons and novelties
And transmogs oh so fine!
Achievements, rares and pets are here -
She’s the queen of grand design!
I don’t have many screenshots of us from vanilla. In fact, I almost added the one from Hooters with our chibi heads but thought against it.
Anyway, thx Nav <3
As you know, I recently managed to get my Lil’ Tarecgosa pet and as part of my appreciation, I left a few gifts with some members in Shadow Rising. But what do you get the guy who has all the pets? Well that’s not entirely true… I did try and get him the Searing Scorching since I knew he was missing that for a while – even doing some of the dailies. In fact, it was one of two pets I religiously looked up (the other was for Navi) every time I made a trip to the AH on any server I happened to be on. The pet was intended as a Winter Veil gift but with time running out, it didn’t eventuate.
So with this latest venture, as I leveled a toon on his home server, I tried to think of another way I could reciprocate – the Crawling Claw. I’ve been lucky enough to have mine for a long time now but since I didn’t make the money back in time, I considered putting my effort into discovering another one as a gift. However, soon after I started digging for another claw (mostly through trade-ins to Braun) it brought back memories of farming the Vial of the Sands, the two bug mounts and my own Claw discovery.
In the end, I managed to make quite a bit of Gold, selling off some of the pets from my collection but I also wanted to supplement that with something pet-related. After Christmas, I was lucky enough to get another Pandaren Fire Spirit which I sent to Arv saying that I knew he already had the pet but he could probably try selling it to get some of the Gold back. Little did I know, he gave the pet to Lyss instead.
It turns out that Lyss lucked out and managed to get not one but TWO pets as I originally gave her my Pandaren Water Spirit – with a matching one to Slice.
But the question remained… what do you get the guy who has all the pets available?
How about turning him into a superhero for a night? I had a suspicion that he was partial to Batman so taking that on board, I went back to my original Batman interpretation as part of my Super Sunday series and tweaked it using Arv’s toon.
The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt.
Look at him rappelling down the walls of Stormwind in style…
