“What are the top three items on your main that you just love for sentimental, fun or silly reasons and would hate to lose? Tell us a story, what makes them so special and as always illustrate with screenshots” By Cymre
I love items. I love gadgets and trinkets and things. It drives my husband insane and he’s put a moratorium on ‘stuff’ as he calls it. However, this does not apply in WoW-life, so I’m always gathering stuff. (Case in point, here are my bags and bank on my main.)
So, when I think to 3 things that are important to me, I think back to a couple of things.
In case you haven’t noticed, I love druids. Pretty much all things druid, including Alliance druids. So, when Blizzard released the moonkin hatchling I was over the goddamn moon. I whined, I pleaded, I begged. Money was really tight so I wasn’t able to justify spending the money to actually get the pet but when Christmas came up, I dropped hints about what I wanted so much that my husband finally said if I mentioned it again, I wouldn’t get it at all.
I spent Christmas day sulking and pouting at him. He would just roll his eyes and go back to whatever it was he was doing (we were celebrating at home that year as we’d said “We need time to ourselves” to our respective families). Finally, about 8pm-ish, he finally turns to me and says “Are you EVER going to check your email?” I couldn’t log in fast enough. For lo and behold, he had purchased the moonkin hatchling for me. And my baby has got to go to every progression kill and boss fight since.
So, that would probably be number one.
Number two is my Bloodbathed Frostbrood Vanquisher. Aka the mount from 10 man ICC achievements. We got our last one *Been Waiting a Long Time For This” on September 25th, 2010. Which was just a few weeks before 4.0 hit on October 12th, 2010. This was a comedy of errors, the way we went about getting it. By the end, only 5 of us were willing or really even capable of proceeding. We ended up pugging the last two achievements, the one I just mentioned and Heroic Frostwing Halls (we were stuck on Sindragosa).
Anyway. At the end, it was myself, the husband, our two best friends and our other pally tank from our guild. And honestly, if I never have to EVER hear Sindragosa’s horrid voice, it will be too soon.
And lastly, I’m going to say is my tree frog pet. I love frogs. I don’t have one because I don’t know how to take care of something that isn’t fluffy and snuggly, but I love them. I have a tattoo of one on my neck, I have frog figures all over my house and yeah. That’s just the way I am. People give me frogs all the time because they know I love them so much.
So, as soon as I found out about the frogs in the Darkmoon Faire, I got one. And my favorite is the tree frog. I should have probably said Mojo but he’s not as cool as the tree frog, turning you into a frog not withstanding.
So, there. My three favorite items on my main. I had this half written with info on a few alts but then I reread the question. So I fixed it!
