This is Day 5 of the 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge.
My favorite items in-game tend to fall into one of two categories. I either have good memories associated with them or they are things I’m proud of having because they are relatively rare. Here are a few of those things.
I wasn’t too into pet collecting when I started playing WoW. I had a few, but never went out of my way to get them. I found the quest that rewarded this little guy in Feralas while exploring. The quest-giver was a little hidden and the chain was long and required a lot of traveling. When I finished the quests and got the Sprite Darter as a reward, I was quite pleased with myself. The pet’s existence almost seemed like a secret at the time. Plus, he’s cute and he’s got little moons on his wings that match a lot of my druid gear. This is still my favorite pet in the game.
I can’t remember if Will of Arlokk was my first epic in the game, but it was the first epic to inspire loot lust. The stats were great, and I really liked the look of it (yay, snakes!). I remember doing ZG every week, hoping to get it. It would drop…and go a priest. It would drop again…and go to another priest. When I finally got it, it was pretty sweet and well worth the wait. This is the only weapon I’ve ever saved on Jasyla.
Wrath of the Lich King introduced raiding meta-achievements with mounts as rewards. This was the first one I got, from doing all the Naxx-10 achievements. I have a lot of achievement drakes, but the Naxx drakes were the only ones that got taken out of the game when the content was no longer current, so I’m especially proud of this one.
Another item that’s apparently no longer available in the game. The Primitive Mantle was a starting item for troll shaman. At the time I got it, I had never played for the Horde before. I good in-game friend of mine rolled a troll shaman, got the Mantle, transferred it over on the neutral AH and gave it to me as a gift. I think it’s pretty snazzy and Jasyla wears it all the time.
