Soul-Trader summon

Credits and Cubs

2

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.

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.

With only a few TCG pets left to collect, it’s exciting to say I’m one step closer to completing the set. The Dragon Kite can appear as one of four random colours – red, blue, green, or purple. Originally released as part of the March of the Legion expansion set, I finally had enough gold to purchase one from the AH.

Next came the levelling process. I started with my usual first battle in the Vale.

A total of six battles later, I was done.

Just watch out for those lightning strikes.

There happened to be a Dragon Kite in the BMAH tonight but I didn’t bid since the auction was more than I had to spend. It turns out the evening wasn’t a total loss when I noticed a Rocket Chicken in the Dath Alliance AH. Unfortunately, I didn’t have that much gold on that side but luckily for me, the seller was online at the time so I asked if they would be willing to sell the item on Dath Horde. As I waited for his response I was excited by his reply so we met up in the orc starting zone.

That’s one more TCG pet out of the way which means I can mark another one off my Ultimate Wish List. Woot! No guesses for which pet I focused on levelling next :)

OK well, bed! Tomorrow should be an even more exiting day for me where I’ll be seeing some of you tomorrow/tonight.
