Mount Parade

Mount ParadeHoly 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 😀

Which immediately awarded me with a new mount!  An Armored Red Dragonhawk (or an Armored Blue Dragonhawk for my single Alliance toon) So…  Now I have 201 mounts 😀

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 😀

That’s 202 mounts!  Now to knock out another 48 mounts to get Mountacular and a Felfire Hawk 😈
