Winter Veil is around the corner and it’s time to sit upon Greatfather Winter’s lap and answer the important question, “What do you want for Winter Veil?” Is it that expensive grand expedition yak? a nice transmog custom outfit? or a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock?
What is on your Winter Veil wishlist?
Funnily enough, I had started this post a few days ago as I wanted to see how my list differed from my previous one written earlier in the year. I’m happy to report that I can mark one of those off my list. :)
There have always been a number of items I’d love to have in-game, although some are more possible than others. A few I’ve even written about like the NPC of my character but in more of a Lara Croft type feel than an Indiana Jones or Tyrande one. Completing my Val’anyr will be one of those things that require time, patience and a lot of luck.
A few pets also rank high on that list with the Collector’s Edition companion pets from vanilla and BC. But the Ethereal Soul-Trader, Lil’ Tarecgosa and Tyrael’s Hilt have all been on that wish list as well. The Onyx Panther will be made one day (most likely at the end of the expansion).
However, I couldn’t finish this list without adding the three spirit pets I’ve been religiously trying to collect each day. If only I listened to my own recommendation and picked the Thundering pet as my reward that first day. Each time I fail, the drive to beat him becomes even stronger so I’ve been known to stay there for a while on some days. If only the amount of attempts (in consecutive battle moves) gave us a higher chance of getting the pet from the reward bag. I’ve had so many long battles with him that I would surely have the pet by now.
Although the Darkmoon Eye will have to wait until next month, I’m comforted by the fact that Jeremy’s team is a lot easier to defeat. Lastly, the remaining ones from the classic raids seem the most doable right now – if not for their elusive drops.
Hmm, I sensing a theme here… I may have a pet fetish. (Like you didn’t know that already…)
No matter, here’s to marking as many of these off my list.
Coolidge surprised me with a birthday gift today, the Soul of the Aspects pet I’ve been coveting since it came out.
When I opened my email this morning, the title read Coolidge has purchased… in the title box. I was secretly hoping that this was the gift and I was right. :D
But what’s a birthday without some cake – Delicious Chocolate Cake anyone? Cool was kind enough to make me one across the ocean.
Later I’ll be writing about the Dath’remar Fashion Show so stay tuned…
Here’s the complete vendor collection which consists of two Darkmoon Mounts (180 tokens each) and six Pets (90 tokens each). There’s also a Darkmoon Rabbit and wolf pet which both drop from two Darkmoon Faire bosses.
Today I managed to get the double achievement Darkmoon Dungeoneer and Darkmoon Despoiler which involves handing in all nine Darkmoon artifacts. As a result, I was able to buy my second Darkmoon mount. I admit that I caved in and bought ‘A Treatise on Strategy’ for 7K G but it was the last one I needed. Plus, I didn’t want to take any chances just in case the achievement was reset again.
