Holy crap what a day for mounts! I don’t think I’ve dropped so many mounts in one day before. Yeah I’m a bit of a mount junkie. Not as much as of an achievement junkie as I once was. But I got two achievements today and 8 new mounts!!
Started out my day with a simple run to Nagrand (Draenor) to drop off a Highmaul Relic for reputation with the Steamwheedle Preservation Society on my Death Knight. I see something flickering nearby out of the corner of my eye. It’s purple smoke. It’s the Edge of Reality Portal!! I get excited, run over and click it. This is a hard to find but a simple gimmie for a mount called the Voidtalon of the Dark Star. Pretty purple non-flying bird mount. (See 3D version from link.)
Earlier in the week I was on the Isle of Giants collecting Giant Dinosaur Bones and Primal Eggs. Having 8 different characters I play, they each had an egg and today they turned into Cracked Primal Eggs (they have a 3 day wait time) and I managed to get all 3 mounts from them.
I also managed to collect over 10,000 bones to get the rewards for those. A Spectral Porcupette and the Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor! This also gave me a cool achievement of: I’ve Got 9999 Problems but a Bone-White Primal Raptor Ain’t One!
So then I decide to run two old raids in search for more mounts. My Paladin finally dropped Experiment 12-B from Dragon Soul! This put me at 200 mounts! So got the nifty achievement of Mount Parade 🙂 Although it didn’t take effect until I logged onto one of my Horde characters 😉 Love the Horde 😀
Then to put icing on the mount cake, I was wandering about Frostridge and found pig-face er I mean Gorok just standing around. I gave him a quick ass-whooping and got the Great Graytusk mount! It was a good day to play 😀
